“You hold more stories than you know.
The Light of the Universe is within you.”
I feel the stars within me,
I am the Milky Way. A vast Galaxy,
spread out among the stars.
“She’s got her feet in the stars,
And her head in the Universe.”
I have red and black designs across my being.
I am the beaded monster.
I feel a power rumbling through me,
a trembling current of healing energy.
I have become a Gila Monster.
Stretched across the stars, and the stars are within me,
from this place of dreaming and healing.
The Black and Red Lizard lives beneath the Earth.
Energetic ley lines in land and sky.
Bridging Worlds within, and Galaxies without.
A lightning bolt of red and black,
brings a healing design to my drum,
a vibration to travel upon,
to track the path of Gila Monster,
A path of healing and dreaming.
I see parallel realities of myself,
existing in other dimensions.
The strings of my drum,
create separate doorways.
I ride upon a giant serpent dragon.
It is ancient, primordial,
known to me
from another place and time.
I want to know her,
and remember her story.
