Listneing Woman: Poem by Jamie Sams

Echoes of the Ancestors

Ride the Winds of Change,

Voices of the Creatures

Calling out my name.

Singing spirits on the breeze,

The crashing waves to shore,

The pounding of Earth Mother's heart

Teach me what to listen for.

In stillness, before dusk and dawn,

Hidden messages are set free.

Like the chants of my people,

Their rhythms speak to me.

My ears can hear this music,

And my heart can understand.

Clan Mother of Tiyoweh,

I am yours to command.

I listen for your whispers

On a course you will chart,

Searching for the still voice

That lives within my heart.

How to Connect with Listening Woman:

  • When someone speaks to you, go into stillness and listen to what they say intently. Rather than respond, give yourself time to process their sharing and wait to speak again until you have had time to fully process and hear the information from the place of inner stillness.

  • Sit in nature, close your eyes, and listen to the sounds around you: the rustling wind, the birds, the insects, and other sounds you may hear. Now listen for the hidden messages and stories in these sounds.

  • Meditate on the stillness of your own being and listen for soul messages.

  • Wherever you may be, enter stillness and listen to the sounds in your home or building, in a car, or in a public place. See if you can maintain full presence and hold yourself in the purity of your own stillness.
