I explained that I had been in quite a bit of pain for almost two years following surgery, and that I felt that I was subconsciously holding sadness in my body in relation to the surgery, doctors, rehabilitation, and all the rest I'd been through, and that my intention was to let that all go, ending that chapter of my life. One priestess inquired if I had a particular goddess energy I wanted to work with, and I explained that I had an affinity for dark/shadow goddess energy, and that I'd prefer to work through the energy of a goddess familiar in the locale. She recommended calling upon Ceridwen, and I heartily agreed. Little was I to know then, but Ceridwen followed me through Wales on my travels.
The experience was remarkable. I laid down on a massage table. One priestess worked on my left side while the other was on the right. We said a prayer together and stated our healing intention. One invited in Ceridwen to assist in the healing and began to energetically pull the energy of sadness, fear, and pain out of my body. The other held space for the process and began to "fill in the hole" with love and light, following the extraction.

I trembled and cried and jerked as the energetic work continued on accompanied by her keening, which became lower, deeper and more resonant, until it was a soothing memory washing over me. It was my signal to let go. And, as I did, the other priestess took up the challenge of making sure my energy was restored and beautiful healing light streamed into energetic wounds. By the end, I felt tired, drained, yet amazingly clear and feeling much lighter.

When I had received my diagnosis and the surgery had been recommended, my first thought had been that I'd never made it back to Europe, and my regret had been that perhaps it wouldn't happen, but there I was, sitting with my cup of tea, having spent my day at Stonehenge, Chalice Well, Glastonbury Abbey, and I'd received the healing that would help me turn a corner on my recovery back to full health and happiness. I was sore and tired, but, goddess, life was good!
