Moon Ceremony Medicine
‘Moon Ceremony Medicine‘ by First Nations Metis artist Leah Marie Dorion – Original painting presented by DaVic Gallery of Native Canadian Arts
Condition: No condition noted.
Description by Artist: “Moon Ceremony Medicine is in honour of all the feminine aspects of creation. These First Nations and Metis women are participating in a sacred full moon ceremony to celebrate the gifts of the sacred feminine. Grandmother moon is sending her healing love to all the women at the ceremony. The grandmother of all grandmothers, known as Old Woman Spirit, joins them as she arises out of the fire with her turtle shell rattle blessing everyone with kindness. Everything in the universe vibrates with loving happiness as everyone prays for the health and happiness of all living beings in our wondrous creation.”
Notes from DaVic Gallery: Grandmother Moon is The Female Energy – It is said that Grandmother Moon watches over the waters of the Earth. We see this in her regulating of the tides. Grandmother Moon controls all female life. Much of the water life spawns according to the cycles of the moon. Just as Grandmother Moon watches over the waters of the Earth, it is said that women watch over the waters of the people. Water always comes before new life.
The thirteenth Grandmother Moon teaching is Mnidoons Giizes Blue Moon – Big Spirit Moon December
The thirteenth moon of Creation is Blue Moon or Big Spirit Moon. Its purpose is to purify us, and to heal all of Creation, a process which may take a three month long spiritual journey. During this time, we receive instructions on the healing powers of the universe and transform into our own vision of the truth.
