A spirit walk ( in or out) occurs when someone is so exhausted from life’s adversity they wish to leave the mortal body and travel elsewhere. Often ,when such a person comes close to death, an exchange happens. The individual departs his or her body leaving way for a new soul to enter…
From The New Age Of Mysticism
Because the house is a dark hushof low ceilings and stone walls, the steps
too narrow like her hips
that could scarcely birth a son,
she shuns her work
and a lamp flickering
near some raw wool
that has been carded and hand-stretched
into something useful.
Outside, she catches the windcasting her breath to a burst
of petals shaken from the stalk.
Aimless in the whirl
of aster, thistle, and wild lace,
she sheds her grief and leaves
her body standing in the field, its shadow
patching a sparse corner of grass.
Inside, a white candle burnswaiting for someone else
to come back, sorting through
her signature ways
and more wool.
