In this second sacred conversation with Reverend Misa Hopkins, she shares her Holding Meditation (what a treat!). She also tells the story of being gifted a large, granite, ceremonial bowl.
The gift of the bowl was an answer to her prayer to discover healing rituals specifically for women. She thought at first to pass the bowl to someone else who might know better what to do with it. But then she received the clear message to work with the bowl; she would know what to do. The bowl ‘spoke’ to Misa. She connected with the wisdom of many lifetimes across time and space. She received the ancient practices of the women she calls “The Grandmothers.”
That was the beginning of the creation of a series of rituals using the ceremonial bowl. Misa has used these rituals in her workshops with women from all over the world.
Can I See the Bowl?
After we stopped recording I asked Misa for a photograph of the bowl so that I could share it here. “Oh, no,” Misa replied, “I can show it to you, but it is only for women’s eyes. I can’t give you a picture to share on your website!”
I love the way Misa’s reply honors women.
I love the way it holds something precious and apart, only for women. I love the way it contains deep reverence for this bowl that is put to such sacred purpose. Thank you, Misa, for being a modern day shaman. Thank you for awakening the rituals of the bowl.
(Yes, Misa showed me the bowl. It is ancient and beautiful.)
My first conversation with Misa touched upon healing. In last week’s post I shared a very personal ‘aha moment’ that came to me as a result of my conversations with Misa and other Divine Feminine guest experts on Paint Yourself Into the Picture. Read more about it here:
