Hyena Calling






Spirit of Hyena came on the last day of the SIH 2 Year Healing Course. At first sight I was gripped with Fear. So strong was the emotion I knew this was for real. For I acknowledged shame and disgust that has imprisoned me. I lifted the mask of misunderstanding. And Hyena's gift was to show me how in those almighty jaws lined by teeth, the power to devour bone to transform death. The phrase came to me 'bone crusher' and I realised the Hyena medicine was powerful one for a Healer. In those same jaws they hold their young delicately and so I was given my bloody heart beating. And so the feeling was swiftly replaced by Love.
