“Imagine, just imagine that you are here as a choice. That somewhere at some point before birth you so loved the World that you poured yourself into it as the healing balm- as the descending and receptive grace. As the spirit, not just waking up from the World but graciously pouring itself back into the World- back into form- back into humanity as means to redeem it. To bring it to wholeness- to reveal the hidden completeness, the divinity within the disaster. IMAGINE for just a moment that THAT was your founding story. That THAT was the orientation of your life.” ~ Adyashanti
~The Original Medicine (OM) operates under the tenets of the First Flame as a spiritual organization committed to preserving and reawakening Sacred Law for all beings.
Sacred laws are a set of Universal principles, often called Akashic records, that uphold unity consciousness, reciprocity, indigeneity, innate abundance, right relationship with and between all living beings, sovereignty and Life inclusivity. Distilled down these Universal laws rise out of feminine consciousness. When feminine consciousness is at the root of our lives, all lives are in balance.
The OM is the educational body of the First Flame bringing people back in touch with the wisdom of Earth medicines, sacred initiations, rites of passage, holistic healing, their heart, the evolution of the soul and the mysterious and masterful blueprint of regeneration within their own bodies. We are committed to helping all who come through our doors reconnect to their innate belonging, their personal lineage, cosmology and prayer.
The sacred technologies and holistic frameworks of OM pave a pathway to the inner healer. This is the high seat of awakening to individual cosmology. Every life story holds a powerful medicine because every life story contains a sacred wound. And, you, are not wounded.
There is a Holy force, a Source force of Life that can never die. There is an Original Medicine that rises from the First Flame of all Life. Around that flame is where The Ancestors gather to tend and tell the first Love story that lives within all living beings as it is woven into the womb, and therefore all bodies. Some call this force God, Mother Goddess, Holy Spirit, Mitakuye Oyasin, Shiva.
We say She has many faces and many names. All names aside we can call it Love. How She is known is through the ways of Sacred Law as lived by us as humans.
We ask you as you enter:
How does the sacred show itself to you? What old story is ready to be freed? You, you are one of Her many faces, what needs to be seen for you to see?
OM was founded and is stewarded by Shira Starfire, High Priestess of the First Flame. It operates through the collective wisdom of appointed council members and all individuals who partake in the services offered under OM and The First Flame. We welcome feedback at any time. We want to hear your voice, your heart and why you are here.
Hello Dear One,
Thank you for being here.
What is relevant for you to hear? What must be known? I have walked through many doors trying to get out of the house of lies I was born into. The door that has been most daunting is the one that has led me to step into the inevitable, or it would have killed me, path of my soul as Priestess of the First Flame. Some call me Medicine Woman, Midwife. I am a lover, a granddaughter, a sister on the Circle, an aunty to many babies, a writer, musician even if it is just for my houseplants, a woman with wounds and dreams that haunt her and a perfect relic of Love’s divine will.
For over a decade I have worked in the healing arts stewarding others back to feminine consciousness through womb healing, the right use of entheogens and Earth medicines, mentoring, group ceremony, prayer, writing and a commitment to walking the path daily. My healing is everyone’s healing and that cliche has been the most challenging, and most Life giving inheritance.
The Mystery, the Womb, is Boss. I call Her Mother God, Father God, The Goddess, Great and Holy Spirit, Gaia. The Ancestors speak through my heart that was long shackled under the noise of trauma. I do my best each day to listen to the wisdom within and follow its guidance. I am ordained to help others do the same.
I have walked a path of initiation and the majority of my experience has come from the great classroom of Life. Prayer woke up in me one day over a decade ago when I almost died from addiction and the traumas handed me in my life. I was saved by a force beyond will. Each day I say, some days it is still a little harder to say than others, I would walk through my life story again to sing the praises of what I now know was living under the rubble of such oppression.
I bow to my many teachers in flesh and in spirit who have made me so. I know with every bit of my soul that I was handed a lot to love free because that is the medicine I hold. If that lives in me, that lives in all beings.
And what I have said from the beginning to the cynic that lives in all of us ~
Why not try on a little magic before you die, because from what I have seen that other stuff just ain’t workin out too well.
I have refused to live locked inside the orderly house of reasons and proofs. The world I live in and believe in is wider than that. And anyway, what’s wrong with Maybe? You wouldn’t believe what once or twice I have seen. I’ll just tell you this: Only if there are Angels in your head will you ever, possibly, see one.Mary Oliver
Please ask me any questions. I am an open book. If you want to know more you can follow me here for more intimate details on my journeys and how I serve others. Your paid subscription helps build this temple so that all beings may be served who may not otherwise find a way.
There is also a memoir on the horizon. And I grace the SM platforms every so often as Shira Starfire.
