When I was little, I brought with me the light and the magic. Painfully shy of humans my first nine years, I preferred to converse with the wind, splash in ditch water the color of chocolate, and wear writhing snakes on my body like a baby medusa, which would send my mother screaming and my siblings yelling that something was seriously wrong with me!
My playmates were the spirits of the caves and mountains, the trees and the earth. I had guides and angels and other luminous beings telling me what would be required and that I might forget, “but try hard not to” they would warn, as time goes by and the density of this world closes in and over you. “Don’t forget us, don’t forget the truth of who you are and where you came from.” I never forgot! My life is a dedication, a celebration and a remembrance of that original truth until I find myself back home again! Cynthia Flores-Signet
And isn’t that what it’s all about … finding our way back home? In my life I have been gifted with several true and fierce teachers, some famous and others infamous. They each helped me to grow into my own skin. They relentlessly pushed me outside of my comfort zone until I learned to live there, to make change and the unknown my allies. They taught me how to see and know, not just believe that there were more realities than this one. They all knew who I was before I did, and prepared me well for the path that destiny had in mind for me. For those teachings and teachers I am forever grateful!
I was trained and taught in the “old ways” through oral tradition and “direct experience with” by indigenous wisdom keepers of the Ancient Americas. I respect and trust this form of learning which is the path of all initiates of mystery school traditions. It is not only about collecting information, it is about integrating it. The teachings that I carry were passed to me through years of apprenticeship and study with medicine teachers who ruthlessly pushed me through direct and profound experiences and initiations until these teachings became alive in me. I remembered who I was and my world changed. I was no longer controlled by fear or limited perception. I came to understand that we are so much more powerful than we know. I clearly saw that the definition that modern society gives to freedom, love and happiness are concepts that do not even remotely resemble the truth of their meaning. And the greatest gift of all from these teachings is to live an authentic life outside of the limited societal constructs.
