This is a living energy archetype close to my heart. Hummingbird is a bridge to our creative potential. It connects us to the Northern direction of the medicine wheel in the Q’ero tradition. This organising principle helps us to release old patterns of behaviour in our lives, including roles we play out that could have been passed down by our ancestors.

The true WISDOM of Hummingbird comes from a deep connection with the natural world and with the ANCESTORS. When we honour these ancient ones for their wise teachings, they stand among us. They watch our backs, supporting, protect and willing us to step forwards, standing on our own two feet.
When working as a shaman, I visualise a joyous, creative solution for my clients highest good. I track with hummingbird to see the highest soul light they potentially hold. This helps me to see if they are suffering soul loss and how close they are to really following their dreams. I encourage clients to invoke hummingbird when they are embarking on an epic life journey.

Working with an Altar.
North Direction: Sere Kinti – Royal Hummingbird Altar.
This process helps me to step out of time. North is a good direction for honouring your lineage. It also helps me to developing a relationship with my heritage and my ancestors. If you want to call in more creativity, inspiration, love, fun and nectar into your life then feel free to ask hummingbird to help you do that. If you want help with being more present, then this is the right direction for you.
Above: In the UK, the iridescant wings of butterfly have an affinity with hummingbird medicine.
North is connected to air, communication, and timelessness and following our soul’s calling across thousands of miles. This would also be where you can get advice about developing your talents and skills.
Use a drumming C.D or drum in order to identify and name all the roles that you have held or hold in your lifetime. Go back to the moment you took them on and acknowledge how this still holds you in a particular way of being (and doing) and then let them go. Letting them go could be just writing the roles onto scraps of paper and then burning them in a sacred fire. It could also mean invoking hummingbird to blow your love and gratitude for these parts of you and their teachings, before letting them go to fly on to greater heights.
Materials: Archetype stones: Humming Bird, Khuyas (stones imbued with your love and compassion or connection with your ancestors), feathers, iridescent materials that represent Hummingbird.
For all our relations

The Q’ero lineage are a group of indigenous Indians originating from the highest Andes of Peru. When the Spanish conquistadors invaded Peru in the 1500’s, some survivors escaped into the mountains and kept their sacred teachings pure. The Q’ero’s have been able to pass on their healing traditions and ceremony aurally from one generation to the next. They continue to develop advanced techniques in healing, divination and ceremony, keeping a strong spiritual connection to the Andes.
Recently the Q’ero medicine men and women witnessed the glaciers melting in the Andes. To them, this was a sign from an ancient prophecy that it was time for them to come down from the mountains and share their medicine with the west. This they have willingly done in special workshops and trainings around the world with open hearts and arms. The Q’ero teachings are about bringing things back into balance with nature and to work in ‘Ayni’ or in reciprocity. The Q’eros see the divine in all nature and speak to each mountain,star, rock, river and tree with great care. In the Quechuan language, there is no word for ‘I’. So come and join us in the circle and experience the essence of this beautiful energy that is created when we tune in together to this powerful medicine and build our awareness as to how it can bring our own lives into balance.
Plan for the day.
The intention behind this day is to give you a glimpse of the essence that this powerful medicine holds in the four guises of the archetypes. We will be journeying, creating ceremony and learning the fundamental tools that will help you to develop a daily shamanic practice. These include energy exercises, creating an altar, creating a sand painting, ceremony and journeying. This workshop will encourage an awareness of the unseen worlds that are all around us and of the many layers of nature.
I will be sharing the medicine of the great archetypes, these are organising principles of the Universe: Serpent, Jaguar, Humming bIrd, Eagle

Free Talk at Equilibrium Health Centre
The talk will be an introduction to these beautiful Munay Ki Rites of initiation and my work as a healer.
The 9 Rites of the Munay-Ki transform and upgrade your luminous energy field. They are energetic transmissions that heal the wounds of the past-your karmic & genetic inheritance.
They re-inform your DNA, enabling you to grow a new body-one that ages, heals, and dies differently. The Munay-Ki is your invitation to dream an entire new world into being.
These 9 rites can be passed on and exchanged without a huge amount of formal training, they are transmissions of light. These RITES can be passed as attunements which create a shift in frequency in your energy field activating your rainbow light body, so that you become HOMO LUMINOUS Living, ageing and Dying Differently.
In the Inca tradition, these energy medicine practices have been handed down orally for over five thousand years. Alberto Villoldo PhD, a medical anthropologist who trained with the Native American people in the Andes and the Amazon, researched the training that I received on the ‘Healing the Light Body’ programme. Please visit the Four Winds society website http://www.fourwinds.com for more information.
Visitors will go away with a clearer picture of what the Munay Ki Rites are and how I practice as a healer.
If you have any more questions, there’s a fantastic website called www.munay-ki.org
This video sums up how I feel about the coming of 2012. I will be giving some free talks over the next few months at Equilibrium about the Munay Ki rites, 2012 and a new years Despacho blessing for the earth. Watch this space for dates.
A vision without a task is but a dream
A task without vision is drudgery
A vision with a task is the hope of the world!
I will be starting a new practice in Lewes, East Sussex from 13 March.
My hours will generally be Sundays 10 am – 2 pm, other times by arrangement. I look forward to seeing you there !
I am the seed buried beneath the soil.
I am the sigh of a breeze through bare branches.
I am the ember hidden in the ashes.
I am the droplet frozen in a glacier.
I am the daughter of the Goddess,
I was dreaming, but must now awake.
I am the daughter of the God
I was bound but long to run free.
It is the time for the seed to sprout.
It is the time for the gale to blow.
It is the time for the flame to rise.
It is the time for the river to flood.
Earth – Air – Fire – Water
I know myself as Gaia’s daughter!
Water – Fire – Air – Earth
The Horned One’s child has come to birth!
