Tree Frogs: Bringers of Balance
~ Joanne Dodgson ~

I'm delighted and honored to share with you the gifts and teachings from the Plant, Animal and Spirit Nations in my medicine bundle for Throwing the Bones Ceremony. Bone Throwing is an ancient Peruvian healing art, a Calling of the Spirits Ceremony, which offers extraordinary guidance from the vast perspectives and doctoring shared by the Spirits in the bone bundle. My apprenticeship as a Bone Thrower in the ways of Ka Ta See began in 2006. For several years, I have been engaged in extensive studies and intentional cultivation of personal relationships with the Spirit Nations who have come to be part of the bone bundle. In 2012, I received permission to give Throwing of the Bones Ceremony with individuals and groups. My teacher, Kay Cordell Whitaker, apprenticed with Chea Hetaka, a Peruvian elder in the Ka Ta See lineage.  The art of Bone Throwing is a traditional medicine way passed on among the women in Chea's tribal culture in the Eastern Andes. www.pathwaysforhealing.net

Tree Frogs: Bringers of Balance

In the deep dark night in the rainforest, tiny rainbow-colored frogs climb up into the branches of the trees. And the Tree Frogs begin to sing. Waves of intricate rhythmic sounds vibrantly come alive. Peeps and creeks and melodies dance on the air, wafting through the trees, lighting up the night.

With playful aliveness. Connection. Creativity. Joy.

Pure Joy.

Tree Frogs sing from their hearts naturally. It's who they are. It's essential. It's what they've come here to do.

When Tree Frogs sing, they fill the rainforest with their colorful voices. With the very breath of life. And the Trees breath this in. Receiving. Soaking up the sharing.

And when the Trees breath out, oceanic waves ripple beyond the rainforest. An ever-flowing Giving. Of the very breath of life. Which nourishes countless beings, so wildly diverse, all around our planet.

So when Tree Frogs sing, they feed the rainforest. And the breath of the rainforest feeds the mother earth. And when the earth and her beings are abundantly nourished, there's flourishing and thriving. Boundless giving and receiving. The birthing of balance. Exuberant, radiant, interwoven Balance. This is the dance which feeds the continuance of Life.

All because of the little frogs.

But that's not why Tree Frogs climb into the branches of the rainforest trees and make magical music. They're not burdened by the idea that it's all up to them to heal the world. They're not trying to make others get it together and change and grow. Tree Frogs aren't forcing anyone to follow along in their footsteps. They're not waiting for applause.

They sing.

Just because. It's a natural thing. It's an unstoppable, passionate, creative expression of the beauty of their being. Night after night. Day after day. Through the earth's changing seasons. Rain or shine.

Sharing the song of the heart, Tree Frogs weave Balance.
For their lives.
For all life.
For our planet.
So can we.
