The Forked Stick

Jun 24, 2017

In this show Nikiah & John-Luke are in conversation with Meg Beeler, as they consider and reflect on the troubled times of the world we find ourselves in. All around the world and those who live in it and by it, seem to be beset on an almost daily if not hourly torrent if ‘trouble’; wars, bombings, terrorism, politicians, disasters, the list seems endless. The question we reflect on is what to do and what to say as teachers and elders of spirit traditions. We ask ourselves if we truly have an answer?



Meg Beeler, MA, is a gifted Shamanic Guide, who expertly weaves her Energy, Alchemy and Shamanic Meditation to guide seekers into joyful connection, soul healing, and luminous presence.


She is the author of ‘Weaving the Heart of the Universe into Your Life: Align to Cosmic Energy’, forthcoming in 2017 from Findhorn Press, as well as ‘Living in the Heart of the Universe’.


Meg is a lifelong explorer of wholeness and consciousness. She has traveled the world in search of traditional and shamanic wisdom. She has been to the high mountains of the Andes and Himalayas, the savannahs of Africa, and the jungles of the Amazon and Central America and in each place she has discovered and put into practice the joy, connection and power she shares with her clients through her work. Meg translates this ancient wisdom into potent practices for connecting with the power of nature and the cosmos.


Her passion is as a guide into personal essence; that of love, vision, and sacred power, as a path to wholeness and transformation.


Meg is a mesa carrier, ordained Minister, initiated Priestess, and Ceremonialist. As a bridge to the Andean cosmovision, she offers community despacho ceremonies, transmits the Rites of Munay-Ki, and teaches shamanic ways for bringing Eagle and Condor together in the lives of others.

‘Troubled Times’ by Green Day from their album ‘Revolution Radio’ released in October 2016. The song is an honouring of Martin Luther King as well as critricism of Presiudent Trump. "Troubled Times" also contrasts the March on Washington with footage of KKK rallies, with each image a call for citizens to stand up against bigotry and tyranny. The song was inspired by the November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks. Billie Joe Armstrong is friends with guitarist Eden Galindo, guitarist for Eagles Of Death Metal, who played at Paris club Bataclan where 95 of their fans were shot dead by terrorists.


“We shall overcome” International Youth Song, rendered by Ragadeepam Choral Harmony, on November 19th 2011 at Town Hall, Kozhikode. Student singers are from different schools and colleges in and around Calicut city.


“I have a dream”, sung by Westlife from their album Westlife released in 1999. Westlife released a cover of "I Have a Dream" in December 1999, twenty years after ABBA's original release. The song became the group's fourth UK number-one single. The release was a double A-side, also featuring "Seasons in the Sun". The release became the UK's Christmas number-one single of 1999, beating Cliff Richard's charity single "The Millennium Prayer" into the No.2 spot. Westlife's version of "I Have A Dream" was later included on their second studio album Coast to Coast in 2000. It then extended its peak into January 2000 and spending seventeen weeks in the UK chart. The song was the 26th best-selling single of 1999 in the UK and it was also the final number one single of the 1990s.

In 2001, as part of a UNICEF fund-raising campaign, the song was re-recorded with additional vocals by Indonesian child singer, Sinna Sherina Munaf. The song has received a Platinum sales certification in the UK for over 650,000 copies sold.


“Holy Mother”, sung by Luciano Pavarotti and Eric Clapton. In a benefit concert for Bosnia in 1996, Eric Clapton performed a song he wrote for the Blessed Mother along with the renowned Italian opera singer Luciano Pavarotti and a terrific Gospel choir. The words of the song are a real prayer for Clapton. In his memoir, Clapton: The Autobiography, the musician writes about a rock-bottom moment he had in rehab in 1987:

“I was in complete despair,” wrote Clapton. “In the privacy of my room, I begged for help. I had no notion who I thought I was talking to, I just knew that I had come to the end of my tether . . .  and, getting down on my knees, I surrendered. Within a few days I realized that . . . I had found a place to turn to, a place I’d always known was there but never really wanted, or needed, to believe in. From that day until this, I have never failed to pray in the morning, on my knees, asking for help, and at night, to express gratitude for my life and, most of all, for my sobriety.”
