|Haiti: Responses from the Circles
We are posting here letters we have received
from individuals describing their journeys
and experiences in their tending of Haiti. The
original letter was sent both to individuals
affiliated with shamaniccircles.org and with the Society
for Shamanic Pracititioners.
Both of these websites have posted letters.

Sunday night my Circle met, and we journeyed for whatever healing we could provide in Haiti. I saw the same mass of swirling souls that you mentioned. Then a beautiful African goddess, dressed in white with a white head-covering, rose out of the sea. She extended her arms compassionately, A powerful white light came from her. My task then was simply to take souls by the hand and bring them into her light. I will be doing more of that on my own.

Upon reading your letter about your journey to Haiti, I was there. It was as if reading your letter was all the travel I needed to do.
I saw a huge angelic being just standing there in that mist you described. I asked/wondered why he was not doing anything. I was told he was giving peace and calm.
I looked elsewhere and saw some people walking away, as though turning their backs on the disaster. My eagle, in very large size, went to them and, one at a time, swallowed each and then spit the person out again. My understanding was that he was helping them transform so they could go back and be a part of their community in this time of trouble.
I then called for angelic help. "All those who work for the highest and best good of all concerned who are willing to come to Haiti, please come now." I saw many white beings come to the shores of the island.
I do not always know what my visions mean. But I can at least report to you
what I have seen. I will continue to look toward Haiti and hope to see more
good things happening.
Thank you for what you are doing.

Dear Carol, Osiyo!
Thank you so much for your outreach for the people of Haiti. It is certainly much needed, and will be for some time to come.
I wrote a step-by-step for people who practice shamanism and/or Reiki for psychopomp/healing help during this trying time, and posted it on my Facebook page (accessible to everyone) and on our blog.
We hope this is helpful.

a candle burning too
i am doing a lot of tonglen
please keep me posted
I journeyed to the dark cloud of un-crossed
spirits and my guides started sending me soul
after soul after soul that I filled up with light.
(It was like seeing them fill up with light like
pouring water into a glass) Then they were taken
to the light. It was so easy!!! Apparently there
are soooo many ready to cross over like this.
I asked my guides to send me as many as my physical
body could handle and then it was over.
Yesterday I received and email from a dear friend
requesting help and it said that 'we must' or
words to that effect and I remember that I could
in fact journey to help those souls in the in-between
and I was grateful.
I would like to share with you my dealing journey
and to thank you forhelping me to remember.
During the day I was conscious that I would travel
with Black Bear and my other Power animals and
guides. It was to be an invisible journey
as I could see a great mass (liken to black clouds
over the area), I set my protection and called
for Archangel Michael to oversee as well as many
other Masters in Spirit.
When I went down to my medicine place I became
a small animal and travelled cautiously under
cover of mist and darkness. And I have
called out strongly that my Intent was to assist
Arriving was greeted by White Buffalo Calf Woman
we traveled deep into the depths of Mother Earth
through a small hole and I was given a cloak,
crafted by Spider Woman, at first I thought it
was for further invisibily but then when we returned
and arrived at the site it was to call home lost
It was placed on the ground and was of beautiful
whitle light that sparkled like stars so could
be seen from afar, we sat together, Black Bear
and Lera by my side with The Master and Angels
all around, beckoning them all to come back home
Then they came almost as a Soul Group each comforting
each other young and old, black and white one
girl came by my side to help comfort them she
knew that some needed her help as well, so many
came together they knew that their families and
loved one were waiting for them in spirit and
it was safe.
I used my eyes and heart to comfort them and
Then it was time to journey back home, I put
the cloak back on and came back, the cloak was
not mine but was given back to Spider Woman and
could be used again if needed.
Again I travelled back as a small animal almost
like an otter, I said grateful prayers to those
that have helped, all colours, all creeds, all
races and all nations.
To all those in Spirit who helped I am grateful,
thankyou to my Power Animals and Spirit Helpers
- Ho - Thy Will Be Done - Amen

Our little drumming circle did some journeys
for Haiti last Friday night, before I had a chance
to read Carol’s post. Since the level of
skill and experience in the circle is quite mixed,
we suggested that everyone just journey to the
upper world to their favorite teacher and then
ask them to do the helping. We got some interesting
One member watched her teacher (who is African)
travel to Haiti and join and help empower the
whole Vodou pantheon – starting with Papa
Legba, then Erzulie, and many others. The gods
were gathering up the stuck spirits by putting
on a huge party – music, free cigarettes,
rum, and lots of sex. They formed a conga line
and led hundreds of them off into the light.
Jesus turned up too – not for the party,
but to help the Christians. Lastly, the serpents
started to reweave the fractured earth.
Another could see something similar, in the
distance, but saw that there is great suffering
in lots of other places too – just that
Haiti is in the news this week. So he sent his
power animals to help wherever they could – like
when you write a check to the Red Cross and don’t
restrict it to some particular disaster. There
are still famines of great magnitude in sub-Saharan
Africa, for example.
Everyone saw something good being done in the
