George & Georgia Bertelstein take their marriage discussion to a
more vulnerable level acknowledging what they’ve learned over the years
of their marriage and life together about vulnerability, reassuring each
other of their love, trusting and emotional and physical intimacy.
George and Georgia Bertelstein talk about the elements of their marriage.
George: “Sacred Marriage is a two-headed eagle, but we only have the
one pair of wings. We maneuver together though we might have completely
independent thoughts, we don’t need to agree all we need is to agree
that we are both moving towards peace, love and vulnerability because
we’ve chosen than and that’s what’s fun.”
Georgia: “You don’t have to agree. The eagle with 2 heads has 2
different perspectives. You have 2 points of view, but we are going in
the same direction together, we can respect each others vantage points
without needing to be focused on the same details. We can drive our
wings together with respect to our prayer together. We have a
responsibility to ourselves and to our project together. It’s not 50/50,
There is a prophecy, known by many, seen and felt by many, that when the Medicine of the North (The Eagle) meets the Medicine of the South (The Condor) it will produce the New Medicine, the Medicine of the Hummingbird.
This is the Medicine of unlimited happiness, health and healing.
The Hummingbird Chronicles is a witnessing of this profound healing which is taking place everywhere, in every time, for everyone.
