Chumash Indians: Revitalizing Spirit

Hiking path in the Santa Ynez Mountains.
Hiking path in the Santa Ynez Mountains.

 

Hiked the trail down to the Chumash fire pit

Threw spiritual logs into the fire

Felt the native spirit in the air, the supernatural

Among the trees, rocks and Santa Ynez sky.

I can hear the drums, the tribal voices

The chants at the fire, the smoking flames

The energy is released, engulfing me, dancing,

Feeling lighter, more awake, revived.

The powerful hawks soar overhead

The owls hooting, crickets singing

The mountains are gripping me

Bringing me closer to the earth’s core of renewal.

Spark me up  burning embers

Take my soul higher, up and away

Revitalize my Native American spirit

Opening heart chakra, connecting, forging the past.

Cosmic, astrological Chumash sharing its magical power

It’s ancient strength and love

Paint my face in blood, harden my feet

Make my warrior hands strong and clean.
