Bone Woman, she put out the call…
Come to me you lost and forsaken, come look into my diamond eyes and I will look into yours. I will reflect your magnificence back to you. Allow me to assist you in unraveling the threads that keep you tightly bound to your pain. I will show you the way to lay down the heavy shield you carry around as a means of self preservation. I want to see you, but you are hidden behind that shield, let me help you lay it down, lighten your load and ease into the feeling of being exposed, unguarded and unashamed.
Let me show you the way to embrace the darkness. She is part of you, she is your ally as much as the light is…
BoneWoman sent out the invitation and I responded to her promise To walk with me and set me back on the path toward “home.”
I was able to reclaim my own personal power and express it in a creative manner. Reda has a way of getting to the root of what our essential true self wants, to help us remember, to assist me and others in a safe and authentic manner. She looks deep into the soul. In the re discovery process of where the original passion was active as a child we remove the obstacles to our own nature, be spontanous, to own our natural state.
Life is full of loss and heartache. We endure. We are still here, with an open heart waiting in this world that seems harsh.
What I discovered is that I am not alone. There is a tribe of other like women. We don’t fit into the parameters, the limitations, the boundaries. And we cannot be defined or bound. We are wild women.
Reda Stirs The Pot, Opens The Doors To A Place Where Are…Infinite, Vast, Boundless.
I am in the flow of that place of possibility now. I am open and grateful.
We can read, we can understand this intellectually. I believe we need to experience this to open the pathways into our bones.
Reda is the ultimate wise woman guide and the epitome of the wild woman.
Thank you Sharon Garber!
I do see you and I know you see me too. You stood by me and comforted me when my mother passed. You helped me face my fears and embrace my magnificence. I stand tall in my medicine because you showed me the way. Your gift of self to each of us is now ours to pass on to others. You are as the wings of a butterfly – your gentle motion has caused an ocean of energy that will impact thousands of people before we are put to rest on this earth…Edi Osborne

Bone Woman is Mother Earth Incarnate. She is fierce in her commitment to all those who come to her. She possesses a magnificent gift for encouraging others to unveil their own unique medicine; that they may commit to bringing forth their own healing, power, and magnificence with confidence.
She is healer, nurturer, mother, sister, grandmother, teacher and friend. I heard her call. Spirit dropped the invitation from Bone Woman to my door. I answered the call and went to her not knowing why or what was to come. My life will never be the same and I am eternally grateful. Through her tender loving care I have awakened to my own medicine and magic. It was always there but until I met bone woman, I couldn’t or wouldn’t let myself hear it.
If you seek empowerment, awakening, and self actualization, if you long to be loved, to be truly seen, and recognized…follow your heart to the heart of Bone Woman. She will lead you to discover and embrace your full potential to be and love all that you are!
Words seem pale when speaking about a glimpse into the world of ancestors through divination by Reda Rackley. Images. Affirmation. Clarification. Rituals to heal the old and open new doors.
When I am at a crossroads, I call Reda. When I need guidance about the next step, I call Reda. Power has always flowed whether it was through the telephone lines, in her sacred space or in Jamaica. As I said, it is hard to speak of this power through something as limited as words.
The first time I visited Reda I was there to companion a friend who was diving deep into her ancestral history, seeking healing and a life-giving path forward. The ritual was foreign to my Christian spirit but I knew my friend was solidly on the path of Spirit, so I put aside my questions and opened my heart. I was there for my friend, but the ancient being Reda channels had things to say to me as well. This resonated deep within. “What was this door that Reda opened?” I wondered. My Christian mind had a phrase. The communion of saints.
Later, when my journey had led me to be more comfortable with the wisdom that flows beyond my Christian path, I came back. I brought my children then. One of my boys was suspicious and wanted to glance behind the curtain. The other leaped into my lap as soon as the ancient being started to speak, in delight. Reda offered gifts to both to hold their spirits as they grow.
When I moved to the ocean, I sensed a grandmother reaching out to me. I had learned to trust intuition by then and knew, once again, that a visit to Reda was in order. She offered me bits of information and rituals, pointers to a journey I had to make.
From time to time, I return and knock on the door. I am grateful, always, for Reda’s honoring of intuitive nudges and knowings that are hard to speak aloud in Western culture. I am grateful too for her guidance on ways to do ritual that seek healing of ancient wounds.
My hope is to heal the past so that I can live and pass on a legacy of joy. Reda’s willingness to open to the mysteries with open-hearted encouragement and support have been a great gift on that path.
I asked Reda for a divination during a turning point in my life. The guidance and answers that came through her helped me to make some wise decisions and to explore creative areas that had long been neglected. The rituals she asked me to do helped me to a sense of deep inner peace, healing, and clarity. Reda’s commitment to the divination path is extraordinary and her ear is keenly attuned to the counsel of our ancestors. Co-author of Maya Cosmos and Woman Who Glows in the Dark.
Reda descended upon Colorado Springs 2 years ago and many of us have never been the same. The rituals that we are all doing or have done have transformed many of our lives….reducing stress, allowing greater achievements and creating friendships and deep understanding of ourselves and others. Just this week, we did a Goddess celebration for Abby Bohley, a dear friend, who suddenly passed on. She had not done her ritual as suggested by Reda several months ago, so 18 of us did it for her 4 months after her passing. That would never have happened if Reda had not conducted many divinations with easily 50 or more people in Colorado Springs. We can’t wait until she returns again this year.
“Reda’s work is deeply insightful, and very healing. Her talent and skill in helping make connections with the ancestors for the purpose of healing in mine and my unborn child’s life, made so much sense to me. Her work was a gift.”
Thank you for opening your home and heart on such a profoundly generous level. To shepherd truth and compassion through a group of women the way you do feels so gifted and synchronized with a timeless kind of wholesome and raw wisdom. …You are such a powerfully courageous and earnest mentor, woman, and leader. Yesterday, and the other spaces of ritual we have shared together have been so grounding, and affirming, and centering. Your vulnerability is so moving and refreshing that is sheds layers off of everyone’s anxiety and trepidation.
Your ability to open space for your cares to fall, and your pain to be heard, and to place trust in all of us on the level that you do, is
awe inspiring. I feel so honored to know you, spend time with you, and be a witness to your magic. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to be your friend, and be in your life.
You Love big. Huge. In a way I never have seen before.
I had arrived at a crossroad in my life; to heed “the call” or run in the other direction. I knew I was being called to activate my “medicine” on a whole new level. Once I recognized the call, opportunities began to present themselves in my world. When Reda sent out the call to be part of her Handprints on the Cave Wall Shamanic Initiation, I knew this was the next right step for me on my journey as a healer. I wasn’t really even sure what I was signing on for, but spirit spoke loud and clear and I jumped in with both feet. The minute I committed to exploring my highest purpose (months before our first gathering) I could feel the shift deep in my bones. My bones knew better than I that the shift would be profound and life changing and if bones can celebrate – mine were.
The process of fully embracing my medicine took me down a path of rigorous self-examination and deep discovery into non-ordinary reality that challenged my Western skeptical mind every step of the way. It wasn’t always easy, but it was always worth it. Throughout the process, I ran my business and could have easily found a dozen reasons not to follow-through. However, any time I wavered in my resolve, spirit nourished my soul and compelled me forward promising a context and meaning for all those amazing moments in my life when I knew something greater than myself was at the helm.
I’m being honest when I say this initiation is not for everyone. You have to be ready to set aside your ego, your skepticism, fear and shame to stay fully engaged. Some days I was better at this than others, but with Reda’s loving determination to help me find my way home to myself and the support of the beautiful women who were walking down the same path as I was, I feel for the first time in my life, that I’m fully present with my purpose for being on this earth. I’m now a fully initiated medicine woman with the ability to help others in meaningful ways, but most importantly for me, I have healed (and am healing) the wounds of my ancestors as I heal my wounds. I’m glad I heeded the call. I hope you will too.
Reda is a remarkable woman whose presence evokes connection to the greater realms of nature bringing them into felt and visual existence. Her work is transferred to those who are around her in a ritual of expanded awareness and love.
Reda knows how to tap into the sacred space where the ancestors speak directly to us. In her nurturing yet direct style, she helps us see and treasure our dreams, and gives us ways to honor and support them. What a gifted shaman!
Experiencing a divination with Reda is a powerful and life altering experience. Reda brings to the ritual a grounding and loving presence that allows me to truly open to the messages I am receiving and take them with me as a powerful gift.
My experience of trust in self and the information I receive has become strong. The body has an increased openness to life and dream experience. The healing from the sea cave ritual was immediate and lasting. My being seemed to leap at the opportunity to move into new space. Reda’s approach with me has been a timely blessing.
I find the work that you have brought to us is profound. I am grateful as it has affected me on a very deep and meaningful level. I trust the authenticity of your offering and appreciate the ability that you have in bringing my focus on what is truly important, what is really occurring on the surface of my/our world. I feel compelled to complete my prescription rituals as an act of gratitude for the information received and in taking ownership for my place on the path of life.
Reda Rackeley has created away to bring women together to heal, to express, and to remember their joy and creativity by her wisdom and nurturing energy. I have been blessed to have had Reda perform several rituals for different journeys in my life. She reminded me of the power of our ancestors, guides and our inner compasses to get through , to manifest and be clear about our power. Her healing gatherings are always balanced with joy and creativity, dancing souls and crying hearts and finding support in each others. Our last gathering in the magnificent Nature and red woods was a journey into fairyland. Reda is a truly modern shaman that takes our hands and walks us into sacred realms to reclaim our inner natures and powers. How blessed I am to have met her along the way.
I have seen miracles at Reda’s shrine. I know when spirit and humans are merging in sacred healing ways. Reda and the spirit that follows her are doing excellent work. I highly recommend any ritual they are sponsoring.
If you want to go on a trip to the unknown but strangely familiar, a place where your most sacred heart is waiting to greet you, a place where your spirit will find it’s kin, a place and time where both stand still holding you in the divine love.. . if you are open and willing, Reda will take you to this magical place.
