Red Arrow Woman: The Cherokee Sacred Pipe

Published June 26, 2022 by tindertender

Long ago, when the world was new, a tribe of red‐skinned people came to live on the lands around the Land of the Blue Mist – the Great Blue Smoky Mountains, Cherokee Country. At this time, the animals of the world still talked to men and taught them how to live on and care for the land. These people were called “Ani Yun Wiya,” or the One True People. In this tribe lived a brave warrior woman called Red Arrow Woman, who was taught to use the bow, the spear and the knife. Even though it was a man’s job to hunt and fight, Red Arrow Woman could shoot straighter with them, and she could throw the spear into eye of a hawk in flight. Because of all this, no man would tell her to be like a woman.

One day while on a hunt, Red Arrow Woman came upon the tracks of Yona the bear. She saw blood on the ground and knew he was wounded, so she followed his tracks. High into the mountains she went. Soon she came to a place that she did not know. It was in this place, a place known only to the animals that she finally saw Yona the bear. He had a deep cut in his side and she saw him bowing down in prayer. Red Arrow Woman saw him bowing toward a large field of tall grass and speaking words that she had not heard before. Suddenly, the grass shimmered and became a lake, and Yona dived into the water. After a time he emerged from the water, his side completely healed.

Yona approached her and said, “This is the sacred lake of the animals, called, ‘Atagahi’ and its location is known only to the animals. It is where we come for healing and strength. You are the first man creature to see the sacred lake. You must never tell your kind of its location for it is the home of the Great Uktena.”

After he said these words and left, Red Arrow Woman was tired and decided to rest a while by this lake. She built a small fire and sat down to eat a meal that she had brought with her, and as she took a drink of the water from the lake, she felt instantly refreshed. She felt strong as Yan’si the Buffalo, as if she could run faster than Coga the Raven could fly.

The woods were quiet: Unole the wind was sleeping, Nvda the sun was shinning bright but was not hot, and the surface of the lake was completely calm. Red Arrow Woman soon began to get sleepy. It was at this time that she saw Uktena, whom she had been told of when she was a child but no one in her tribe ever claimed to have seen him.

High above the water he raised his great Serpent Dragon head, the jewel in his forehead glistening. He began to move toward her. Red Arrow Woman grabbed up her spear and stood up to face the great creature coming to her, standing proud, showing no fear — the way any warrior should. She raised her spear and prepared to strike the huge beast.

Uktena stopped a short distance from her. He smiled, his mouth grinning larger than a man was tall and full of teeth longer than man’s forearm. He spoke to the brave woman on the bank of his lake. To her he said, “Put down your weapons for I mean you no harm. Uktena told her to sit and to listen. Uktena dipped his head below the surface and came back up a moment later. In his mouth he had a strangely crooked stick and a leather pouch, which he lay on the ground in front of Red Arrow Woman.

Then the Great Uktena began to teach. He said, “This that I have laid before you is the Sacred Pipe of The Creator.” He then told her to pick up the pipe. “The bowl is of the same red clay the Creator used to make your kind. The red clay is womankind and is from the Earth. Just as a woman bears the children and brings forth life, the bowl bears the sacred tobacco (tsula) and brings forth smoke. The stem is man, rigid and strong. The stem is from the plant kingdom, and like a man it supports the bowl, just as man supports his family.”

Uktena then showed Red Arrow Woman how to join the bowl to the stem saying, “Just as a man and a woman remain separate until joined in marriage so too are the bowl and stem separate. Never to be joined unless the pipe is used.”

Uktena then showed her how place the sacred tsula into the pipe and with an ember from the fire lit the tsula so it burned slightly. He told her this, “The smoke is the breath of the Creator. When you draw the smoke in into your body, you will be cleansed and made whole. When the smoke leaves your mouth, it will rise to the Creator. Your prayers, your dreams, your hopes and desires will be taken to Him in the smoke, and the truth in your soul will be shown to Him when you smoke the pipe. If you are not true, do not smoke the pipe; if your spirit is bad and you seek to deceive, do not smoke the pipe.” Uktena continued his lesson well into the night teaching Red Arrow Woman all of the prayers used with the pipe and all of the reasons for using the pipe. He finished just as the moon was beginning her nightly journey across the sky in search of her true love. He told Red Arrow Woman to wrap the pipe in red cloth, keeping the parts separate.

Uktena then returned to depths of the lake, telling Red Arrow Woman she would never again be able to find this place but she would remember all she learned. Red Arrow Woman saw the water shimmer and become again the field of grass. She left, taking with her the pipe and her lessons and a wondrous tale.

Ever since that time, The Ani Yun Wiya have used the sacred pipe and never again has any man seen the sacred lake of Uktena.

The pipe is not a symbol of things that are sacred. The pipe itself is sacred. Not everyone is called upon to be a pipe bearer. The person who carries the pipe and practices the pipe ceremonies and traditions has a great responsibility to his brothers and sisters, his land and country and even to the Earth Mother.

We call up on celestial realms,
The Angelic beings, the planetary guides and protectors,
And the ascended ones
To bless mankind and to be present here with us.
We call up on the Divine Light of Love, Truth and Harmony
To shine in places that need healing and guide our way.
We ask for these blessings with great reverence,
From our Mother – From the Earth, the Sky, the Moon, the Stars,
The Sun – our Father.
May we always remember we’re pure consciousness,
The essence of Life, the source of all things.
May we find the courage to let go fear and the pain of past conditioning.
Let us walk upon the Earth gently, as true Spiritual Warriors,
Inter-dimensional midwifes giving birth to our True self.
Letting go of separation, evolving beyond limitation
Into divine self-expression thereby assisting in a co-creation
Of a dawning light filled world.
Om Shanti, Shanti…

The Lords Prayer

Published April 16, 2022 by tindertender

This morning I woke up to the words of The Lords Prayer and knew that the meaning ascribed to me by my Catholic upbringing was not the full meaning of this beautiful prayer. I was guided to look up the Lord’s Prayer meaning in Aramaic and found, “Our Father,” a translation of the word, “abba.”… the actual Aramaic transliteration is “Abwoon” which is a blending of “abba (father)” and “woon” (womb), Jesus’s recognition of the masculine and feminine source of creation.”

From this translation we see the importance of recognizing the divine feminine/masculine balance in order to know spiritual truths.

The words of the Lord’s Prayer and the meaning given to me.

Our Father

Mother/Father Creator – divine feminine/masculine aspects of self, mirror of the One True Creator of All.

Who art in heaven

The kingdom within the heart.

Hallowed be thy name

The vibration of the Creator within the DNA and cells of self. A harmony, a song of divinity both individualized and connected to the All.

Thy kingdom come

Heaven actualized in the I AM.

Thy will be done

The will of self aligned to the will of the Mother/Father Creator.

On earth as it is in heaven

We create heaven on earth when we align our will to that of the Creator vibrating the frequency of Christ-Sophia consciousness. To fully embody this energy the feminine component must be activated. This is the reason the DF was purposely left out.

Give us this day our daily bread

Spiritual truth.

And forgive us our trespasses,
As we forgive those who trespass against us

Forgiveness frees our energy and the energy of the one that is forgiven in order that we may fully live from our divinity.

And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.

When we live from our indwelling spirit, the flame of the Holy Spirit, the truth of who we are, we shall overcome all trials and tribulations and vanquish evil.

For thine is the kingdom,and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever.

The kingdom of the Creator exists within the sanctum of our heart. When we live from this space, our divine self, goodness and light shall be ours eternally.

The Lord’s Prayer is telling us the Mother/Father Creator, is truly within. Heaven is a consciousness we attain by connecting to and living from the love within our hearts.

Oracle Consultation for Ukraine 2/26/22

Published February 26, 2022 by tindertender

The country is here to stay, and grow. There has been a health condition needing addressed, perhaps inherited circumstance of the people. There will be security, and great family responsibility. Remember to ground, still the mind, and flow with life. Getting stuck on a topic which brings stress to the mind and body can bring about ill health.

Ukraine is an ancient civilization. True health is found in aligning between that which is above and that which is below. Balance.

By peering into the depths of what’s been going on, healing can be gifted to the various circumstances, but only if there is a willingness to see into the bowels of affliction, that which has been hidden. You may have hit rock bottom … there is only one way to go from there … UP. Now is a time for healing. Be prepared to work hard for what you want.

By looking into the cavern in which the hidden resides, you will clear out the source of suffering. Success, victory, and even glory will be yours. Be careful not to get too cocky though, or you could get burned by arrogance.

You will receive a blessing. Step up into the light. Engage in a new project or take a new direction.

Calm, peace and serenity is coming through experience, wisdom gained.

Remember Time …

Use your time wisely. Life is transitory in nature, so savor every moment.

Remember your immortality, this current experience is a lesson for your advancement in resiliency, strength and patience ~ learning to love greatly.

An elegant woman will be coming on scene. She is beauty, she is light, she is love and passion. She is the true embodiment of Feminine Power. She will be united with her Divine Counterpart in a very public way after receiving formal invitation.

The Divine Realm will not allow you to do so. Your life will always be brought back to the right path.

Freedom and Gratitude

Published February 8, 2022 by tindertender

Freeing my parents from the feeling that I’ve been let down.

I free my children from the claim that they must live to make me proud.

Let them go the way of the joy of their heart.

Let them follow their intuition & follow their dreams.

Relieving my partner from the obligation to complement my integrity.

I lack nothing, I am constantly learning along with all beings.

Thank you to my grandparents & ancestors who met so that I could breathe life into today.

I free them from past setbacks & unfinished desires, knowing that they’ve done what they can to live their life’s circumstances to the fullest.

I honor, love & recognize them as free beings without any guilt.

I expose my soul in front of their eyes so they know I have nothing more to hide or owe, besides being true to myself & my own existence by following the wisdom of my heart.

I am fulfilling my life plan, without the consent of my family.

I know that I’m responsible for my peace & happiness alone.

I give up on the role of a savior who unites or meets the expectations of others.

I learn through love & only through love.

Therefore, I honor my essence & thrive on my being & its manifestations, even if others may not understand me.

I understand myself because only I am living my story.

Because I know myself, I know who I am, what I feel, what I do & why I do it.

I honor myself, love myself & accept myself without guilt.

I honor, love & accept you without guilt.

Honoring the divine in me & you.

We are free…

Prayer from the 7th century of Aztec language Nahuatl.

In Prayer, Toss Manners Aside

Published February 5, 2022 by tindertender

One of the first things most are taught are “manners”, saying please and thank you. Making commands, affirming our Will into existence, was programmed out of us.

It is every person’s responsibility to break the program and BE TRUE to self.

It is a challenge, at the least.
