Johannes Brahms, Standing Bear and Lord Tennyson pay us a visit!

17 02 2010

13th February saw a group of ladies collected at my home for our spiritual support group.  I followed the usual routine of offering my assistance to each in turn – the first needed a quick clearing of earthbound spirits from her energy centres but this was immediately followed by the ‘oompah-pah’ song  from her father-in-law in spirit – always raising a laugh as he played in a brass band when he was on earth (and reassuring for this lady as proof that he continues to live)…

The second lady received the message ‘have faith’ from her deceased father – followed by the image of a trumpet blowing ‘bum cheeks’.  I am merely the messenger but always feel it is my duty to pass on whatever I am sent from the other side and luckily this received a fit of giggles from this lady and her daughter, who knew what this ‘wind instrument’ implied…

The third lady is a gifted healer in her own right, and has a particular connection to nature spirits.  “You will think this is a bit weird, Jane…” she said, “but I saw a bear standing in the corner of my living room the other night!”  (In my business, nothing should be passed over – if you will excuse the pun – so I set to with my dowser and as I passed several spirits over received ‘Brahms’ (the composer), ‘Black Forest’ and ‘Germany‘ ….but most significantly a massive charge of buffalo spirits thundered home – taking so long as my dowser whirled I had nothing to report but dust  from the stampede!  I saw her bear standing on two legs and said Standing Bear! (“Yes”, she confirmed, he was standing up on two legs.”)

Finally, my fourth lady asked me to check her husband and after removing ‘an aggressive sort’  from his solar plexus, I was led to clear his earth star chakra (below the feet and often associated with past life ‘leftovers’)  I heard Charge of the Light Brigade! and felt his significant involvement with this time in history.  In the meantime my dowser whorled on and on clearing something on a very deep level.  Later, she helpfully emailed me links to websites detailing the ‘Charge’ but as I had little time I used the headings to dowse for earthbound souls still in need of help.  Between the ‘Light Dragoons, Lancers and Hussars’ only sixteen remained (‘quagmire/slippery/slidery mess’) and all the commanders had passed safely. However, Lord Alfred Tennyson, who wrote the patriotic poem Charge of the Light Brigade (1855) was still stuck after 118 years….and stepped aboard the spiritual vortex leading the others home!

The very next day I ‘happened’ to switch the TV on to BBC2’s ‘FLOG IT!’ which was broadcast from Clacton-on-Sea and was amazed to see that a member of the public had brought in a late Victorian umbrella stand in the shape of a standing bear and the expert said it had been made in the Black Forest in Germany!  My mind returned to ‘Brahms’ so I researched this famous composer.  Also born in Germany, his father Johann Jakob Brahms (1806–72), apparently played in a brass band! – And although both men were resting in peace, the younger Frederic (?) was still stuck on the earthplane…but not for long….and it was no surprise when his soul sang out  ‘oom pa pa!’ as he was reunited with his father!

Finally, I was drawn to enter Standing Bear in the google tool and guess what?  He was a native American Ponca Indian Chief  (who passed over safely in 1908) and he and his people were nomadic buffalo hunters!!! (Ashes to ashes, dust to dust LOL!)  He was keen to point out that his people ‘revered the buffalo, including his/her spirit’, and that the buffalo who needed help were not treated with the same respect… Over the next few days I saw ‘standing bears’ everywhere…at the NEC Fair Birmingham on Sunday I spotted what I thought was a little metal bear and upon asking its price was told ‘£150, but you can have it for £125….It is hand carved out of wood from the Black Forest…’

“I’m sure it is worth every penny”, I laughed, “but quite out of my own reach!” ….”Oompah-pah, oompah-pah that’s how it goes…” sang my friends from the Other Side!


Luther STANDING BEAR quote: ‘The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the hand that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers; he belongs just as the buffalo belonged.
