Linda has been called a mystic, a healer, an intuitive and teacher.
"Please do not confuse me with Linda Hogan the prolific Native American author. The names are the same, but the women couldn't be more different. We each follow our own unique paths."
Linda's deep love of the Earth led her to study with Native American healers as well as Shaman: Bernardo Peixoto "Ipu" from Brazil, Cleicha from Peru, Jose Luis Herrera and Jorge Luis Delgado whom she has traveled and studied separately with in Peru and learned ceremony. Most recently she traveled to India and was blessed to live with and learn from Tashi Kangasar, a Tibetan Elder. She also studied Tibetan Energy Medicine with Dr. Dondo Dhondup of Dharmsala, former doctor to the Dalai Lama. She claims her greatest teacher has been Mother Earth and she continues to receive information from this sentient being as well as her spirit guides.
"Linda, you do Earth Acupuncture", she was told by Adam Yellowbird, who had also been invited to the inaguration of Mayan Elder and Keeper of the Mayan Prophesies, Don Alejandro Cirrilo in Guatemala in August 2008.
Linda was asked to carry sacred items from Tibet and present them to Don Alejandro as a sign of unity and appreciation for his work keeping the ways of the sacred Maya alive.
Later that October while living with a Tibetan Mystic in Dharmsala, India she was told to go and gather the sacred energy of the holy ones that had lived there, The Dalai Lama, Karmapa, Jesus, Ghandi and so many more. She followed his directions and holds the energy of these sacred ones and sacred places until it is needed.
3 years later in
October of 2011, a new friend invited her to meet and spend a day learning from Mandaza Kandemwa
, an African shaman and Peacemaker from Zimbabwe, visiting Massachusetts. " We met this beautiful soul at a New England pond in it's full autumnal glory and sitting on Mother earth at his feet we learned how being 80% water ourselves, our own toxic thoughts are responsible for polluting the waters of the world. He then invited and instructed us to submerge ourselves in the water and travel through "villages" (dimensions) for healing of ourselves and the planet. His joy was contagious and we were soon submerged in the fridgid water seeking knowlege. I was in awe of how the water changed from a "wet liquid" to a living being caressing my body with silken hands after I had found the villages."
Linda had no idea how important this knowledge would prove to be a month later at Augas Caliente in Mexico when she and her traveling companions were asked to scale waterfalls while tons of rushing water poured down upon them. Linda was thankful that she had done ceremony, asked permission and gifted the water before going in.
Linda journeyed to Palenque, Mexico to the Mayan Ruins on 11-11-11 where she, and others who chose to go, did ceremonoy at various Mayan ruins to help usher in 2012 and the Shift to the new earth. "Perhaps this is where the energy was needed next. The Ravens show up, I know I"m going on an adventure and Spirit sends me where I am meant to go." It was a beautiful adventure and the energy on 11-11-11 at 11:11 am flooded into the plaza of the Temple of the Sun raising the vibration and filling the small group of people there in the jungle with unconditional love to carry back out into the world.
As Ann Ruel and Linda sat in the middle of the court yard in rain ponchos, holding the energy, a holy woman who had been chanting in the Temple of the Sun made her way down the steps and sought them out. Speaking in tongues, she blessed and acknowledged them.
It was a very special and sacred moment.
Our group returned in the evening, after the park was closed to the public, to do more ceremony. Here is a photo taken on the Steps of the Temple of the Sun just before our ceremony while we waited for the sun to go down. You can see we were not alone by the large orb glowing above us in the Temple of the Sun.
It was certainly magical time for all of us.
In the summer of 2013 Linda traveled to the Highlands of Scotland and the Isle of Skye. In search of family history and her roots, she made deep connection as she hiked the highland moors and ancient forests. Her love of fairy folk led her to the Fairy Glen at Uig on the Isle of Skye and in deep meditation, she and her traveling companion, a shaman and longtime friend, individually received the same messages about the current sad state of the faery realm and why and where it had retreated to. Ceremony was done, communication was made and directions were received as to what is necessary to help them return. Linda and her friend continue to work under the guidance of these ancient beings.
Traveling later that year to Maui, Hawaii, Linda made a deep connection the land and definitely felt a faerie presence there.
This Mother tree was hundreds of years old.
She also encountered living "Earth Angels" , one being Moses, at the Banyon Tree. His words of prophecy and wisdom impacted Linda and her friend, Maui resident, author of "Simply a Woman of Faith, Pat Hastings.
Linda has learned to take these encounters very seriously.
