My Fire Ceremony Update by Camilla Blossom
The strong heart-fires ignited my heart like a Phoenix Rising after my many “initiations” by fire at The 7 Sacred Feminine Fires Ceremony. Held under the sky of six planets aligned in Aries, I dove into the Aries-inspired original Source connection with all of Creation. This is the emergence of the feminine Power of Creation. We build one new fire every day to connect with the major portal fire of Egypt with the intention to clear enslavement and karma in our personal lives and around the world. From the central fire, each grid line extended out into the world’s karma for clearing. The energies carried across the globe to connect up with other fires and also to flow in the waters to the sea.
For seven days and seven nights, we make Offerings to the Fire to help us release the old world. The fires were burning up all that separated us from Source, more and more each day. Many of us offered our own selves… a “death” to the fires so our heart could be reborn through the Great Mother.
On the seventh day, when the six planets were aligned, the Goddess energies—Grandmothers, mothers, daughters, sisters, feminine energies emerged with a powerful wave of energy never before experienced on Mother Earth.
Council of Creation of the Plants
A key aspect of the event was to initiate New Relationships with all of Creation by connecting back to the very Source of all things (Aries alignment) without obstacles in the way (karma, beliefs, fear, etc). The Councils of Creation of the Plants was one opening that brought us back to the beginning spirits of the plants and their True Purpose. The plants are our original Teachers. The plants are what sustain us!
The Spirit of the Bristlecone Pine was our honored and trusted Elder during the ceremony. We sat in Council in the sweat lodge to learn about our right relationship with the plants. A branch of hers was placed upright in the center of the lodge. As we tuned into the Bristlecone, I could feel her energy encompassing and merging with mine starting with a strong tone in my right ear. An overwhelming feeling of Goddess strength and frequency from above filled my crown and heart with strong loving energies. The plants communicate with us through its vibration and frequencies—it was like hearing a song without words or notes. I allowed the energies to come into my body like a download. A word appeared to me from its vibration: HUMILITY.
HUMILITY. HUMAN-ILITY. How to be truly human in this New World we are co-creating with the plants, animals, fire, earth, air, water, ethers, Mother Earth. In discussion, we found the need to be HUMBLE and allow a vulnerability to be present if we are to come in alignment with all aspects of Creation. Humans have lost sight of the proper relationships with all beings. We practiced this right relationship again. Created a template for a new world.
Katie and Cynthia and I sat with the Bristlecone Pine further and were able to connect with the tones and sound that eminate forth from the vibrations of the tree. The ancient tree is 4-5,000 years old and its sounds were both low and gutteral as well as airy, wispy, and haunting sounding. The resonance was very high frequency as if your crown chakra was being blasted with light. Bristlecone showed us the “light that emerges from the shadows.” I feel she will continue to guide me.
Prior to the ceremony, I was called to work personally with Moss Woman for healing. With her presence, I could feel a “buffer” of protective insulation from what was previously too overwhelming for me energetically. I created a moss essence just prior to the Fire Ceremony. It seemed to be an important medicine for us Fire Walkers.
I was thrilled to walk back into the ceremonial area with the sweat lodge, alter, fire pit, and see a “moss land” that looked like the fairies and gnomes had built it. It was the creation of Adia, an eight year-old magical child that lives here. She created a path and a moss nest big enough for a human to curl up in and rest. We did.
The moss energies feel like an important covering or blanket, a moist soft buffer to counter the hot, fire transformation. Moss Land was right next to the sweat lodge. Moss was like a goddess blanket to “take your worries away,” as Aida says.
Blessing the Feet
Our feet are the place of connection to Mother Earth. Marshall channeled an important message about our need to bless our feet on a daily basis. We used moss, flower essences, healing waters, earth, sand, corn meal, tobacco, lichen, energies, and honey to bless our feet around the fire. The buzzing of energies and connection to the Crystalline Grid of Mother Earth intensified after the blessings. We will continue to bless our feet everyday.
Healing Women Karma
The Fire Ceremony marked a shift from the Grandfather (masculine) fires to the Grandmother (feminine) fires. During the ceremony the men held a supportive role of attuning to the Goddess energies and the women present. As facilitator, I stepped into a stronger position of leadership with the loving support of the men. This alone was a huge healing for the karma of the world and each one of the women present. To be in a space where the masculine is in full presence to serve and empower the feminine!
On the seventh and final day of fires, we were guided to create glyphs or drawings on the grid lines that extending out from the fire. Using cornmeal, flowers, moss, branches, crystals we created amazing drawings around the medicine wheel. I laid a white shell where the ovaries of Mother Earth would be and created her reproductive system in drawings and with a large diamond at her uterus. From these creations, the women gathering by the fire as the men stood back and we danced an ovary healing ceremony for Mother Earth, ourselves, and all women of the world (and plants). Our ovaries were created when our mother was in utero inside our Grandmothers body so we were connecting back to all our women ancestors and their karma. We asked for the creative fire within our eggs to come alive once again, and to burn bright and fill the world with our collective creative expression. We asked to clear the enslavement of women. We offered moss and lichen to the fire and sent our prayers out into the world. After the ceremony, we circled in the healing lodge and each woman told her story and offered her new fire expression using rattles created from a wolf skull.
The Fire Ceremony will never be over… we continue to hold this energy in our hearts as it continues to work through us from the plants, the animals, the elements, the Councils of all Creation on behalf of Mother Earth.
The Bristlecone Pine Elder called in the Divine Masculine and Feminine from above and the Cedar, the Tree of Life, brought in our connection from below—Mother Earth. Soon women will be called to give birth back to the Tree of Life.
Marshall and I are feeling a huge wave of feminine creative fire energy that is rolling in very strongly for women (and men’s feminine). Choose to ride this wave into empowerment and creative blossoming. Or you may be tsumanied by the power of the Goddess!
It is time for humanity to stand up for Mother Earth—doing this will heal ourselves as we help heal the planet!
Fire Ceremony Essence
I created an essence from the plants that called to us and it was used throughout the Fire Ceremony to align everyone with each other, the plant kingdom, Source, and our collective intentions for the ceremony. Cynthia Lapp channeled the label for the essence which is the sacred geometry drawing of the 7 Feminine Fires.
Fire Ceremony Essence: Cinnamon tea (release anger, rage, trauma), moss essence (buffer, insulation, calm comfort), Bristlecone Pine (Creation Source, ancient teacher), Cedar Grove (Feminine Mother Earth), Creosote bush (ancient teacher), Big-leaf Maple Tree (Grandmother/Grandfather Love, reunion), Maple Syrup, Trillium (Divine feminine rebirth, ovaries), Oregon Opal (fluid Goddess), deep sea water.

Years ago during a rebirthing ceremony, I saw a huge scab—oozing, crusty, bloody. I recognized it as the “Great Wound” of Mother Earth. I was told that Frankincense would heal the wound of Mother Earth.
As we heal our own wounds, we heal Mother Earth, and as we focus healing powers and prayers on Mother Earth, she heals us. Let’s heal together.
