Edited to correct my own error

Oops... In my post (as below), I said I'd travelled to north-east USA and south-east Canade, but I've never been there... we hugged the west coast for 8 weeks... Oops!!

I was keen to work with it whilst Journeying, but found I couldn't drum and journey at the same time :-o I do use it when I spontaneously get a nudge to just Drum to shift energy in the more still areas of the home, just to liven the energy up... and sometimes I just feel like getting her out of her bag and playing ... It's a very beautiful drum.

Since then, I travelled to north-east USA and south-east Canada and finally met my first NA flute, and became so completely entranced by it that I now have, well, many Flute voices travelling this journey with me... People love Flute, and I'm ask by so many people to play at many different functions... some public, and others very private :) It always feel like a huge honour to play a beautiful Flute for people, because so many are truly touched by a flute's voice. :)

Speaking of Drums, is everyone who enjoys drumming and uses Drum for prayer alert to the fact that there is a global drumming for peace event happening very soon?

Am I allowed to put a link here? This will possibly appeal to a great many people, and, when coming together for Peace, the more, the merrier, yes?

I have had my Drum for Many moons. It calls to me now and then and I Love connection with the Heartbeat of the Earth Mother!! Once or twice I have used it (along with a Dear Friend) to Journey. I can hear it CALLING as I type this post!!
I also have a gourd rattle that I beaded the handle and it sits ( in it's Red wrapping) on top of my Drum. One day I was "nudged" to use it as my beater and WoW!! Very Powerful and quite a different Energy.

Thanks for this post as I needed this reminder!! Day to day Living can get chaotic and I can become all "caught up" and not LISTEN...
Ah HO!
Mitakuye Oyasin!!

Probably the best way to make that happen is to google Blue Bear flutes on you tube.

Charlie from Blue Bear flutes gives many free tutorials on how to make NA flutes, from videoing himself walking through the woods to find his stems to measuring the finger holes. Then Odell Borg offers 10 or so free youtube tutorials o how to play and care for your NA flute ... Very best wishes to you :)

Thumbs up

Thanks for the info linnie!!
I also have recently met a Navajo man who has relocated from the west to here in Tennessee and he carves the most Beautiful flutes! You can FEEL the Spirit of the wood and how he has connected with it and worked from there.
I will definitely check out the suggestion you made!!
