It All Started With A Rainbow

Published September 2, 2019 by tindertender

As I pulled out of my driveway for the weekend I looked left and saw this beauty. It was only this stretch. I’m not certain if there was additional rainbow behind those clouds, and the colors of the portion I could see were quite intense.

Before I made my way up the hill I took a bit of a joy ride and saw this covered bridge and another building just to the side of the road, slightly beyond the bridge.

Just below was the river (creek).

While running around in open field I received four doses of Bee Medicine 🐝 and a love bite for good measure. It is amazing how shifting perspective changes from a venomous encounter to a dosage for health … mind, body, spirit. Bees sense when we need a little of what they offer, and they always deliver.

I never knew I could fall in love with so many people at once.

I learned this weekend that sometimes when we shed our past it will still occasionally rear it’s head and fight strongly to survive. At this moment I also understood (yet again, and more clearly than before) that I am always at choice as to how I will respond to these moments. With assistance from chosen family, I am happy to say that this moment dissipated in under 30 minutes, replaced with love, and a return to joy.

Knowledge is such a blessing as I age … my own, and others’ as they share freely.

Many people came to this Green Corn ceremony and celebration. It was incredible and amazing how everyone assisted, cared for, and were personally involved with each and every person … and animal.

I was able to wear my first two ribbon dresses I had sewn and also try out the first pair of moccasins I created. Adjustments will happen and new garments and boots will be constructed for next Corn Planting ceremony and celebration.

I gained a “Grandpa” and was gifted training from two Grandmas on dance steps, how to hold my shawl properly, and how to move to the music in a fashion that matched the drum tempo, always pausing forward movement for the Honor Beats, dancing in place.

I learned how to pollinate the corn 🌽 also. I was gifted red corn ears from The Blue Clan and will try my newly learned process, teaching myself how to grow great, full ears of corn at harvest. It is going to be fantastic!

I am learning so much from my chosen Brothers and Sisters it fills my Heart, heals my Spirit, and nourishes my Soul.

As I sit here, all things in their place and myself finally cleaned up after four days of Sacred Relation in a dry camp, I am completely at peace. Completely. Relaxation like this doesn’t come along too often, so I will start projects that will be utilized in our next gathering, and as I create, I will think of my chosen family, loving them, excited to see them again … All of them … and the others who will come in future.

A return to the Sacred Ways is happening … now. There are so many who feel in their hearts the truth. That we have never been alone, and when we assist each other in a good way, with love and empathy in our hearts and minds, ALL honorable circumstances are possible.

Bless the Tradition Keepers, those who have safeguarded the Old Ways, so that we may return to a life of Peace.

YOU’RE THE SEDIMENT OF YOUR LIFE THAT PRECIPITATES FROM YOUR COHERENT ACTIONS

Published August 19, 2019 by tindertender

In your darkest of times, there will always be a way out. You must look for the light and follow it to help you to the door of change and new realities. Remember that the soul is not physical and is energy. That which you send in energy and reaction dresses fields about you. Change your thoughts and your attitude and what you radiate will draw to you accordingly. The body is a vessel that can and will change. Bring it seaworthy first and set a course and use your inner compass to take you there.

Change is a state of energy and excitement of force fields on the molecular level and all is the density of magnetism you perceive as solid. Never forget you act in the sedimentation of your attitudes, focus, and desires. They are your power. You either use these with the intention to create the power of you or you live randomly in hopes of things flowing by chance. Just remember that the odds of chance are affected by what you lure into you with your magnetism.

All of your limits are created by your perception as well as your experiences. Change your concepts and allow the forces of nature, life, and your soul to impress the will of your oversoul and you will find the power to make magic. You live by your will and intention. It is all forces controlled or random. You make the difference by your knowledge and your actions and attitude.

Secret Balance, No Secret At All

Published November 1, 2018 by tindertender

Someday I would like to learn to play these and purchase my own. To sit in the wilderness, seemingly alone, and play would be so wonderful!

What holds a person back from doing what they wish to do?

Issue: Remember to hold on to your dreams, even through adversity. Develop faith in yourself and in spiritual power. Trust is important. You must trust your own leadership abilities, or improve them. Do not be afraid ~ you were born for this.

Challenge: Build love of self from the inside out. Fear is born because of a lack of self-love and acceptance. Without a healthy love of self, we reduce our personal power, often falling into petty jealousies, judging our bodies, and numbing our minds.

Solution: Healthy fierceness is required. Strengthen your physical body. Walk forward in pride and know that you can fight any battle. You need to strike a balance between masculine and feminine.

Make it a point not to get too wrapped up in the physical. Life is so much bigger than that! While our energies are ‘tied’ to physical form, we have the ability to transcend this flesh … through meditation, through the beauty of music, art, and nature, through conscious choice to embody love, care, and compassion, for self and others, including all of the animals of this world, including the earth itself.

Have you ever experienced a moment of giving so purely that it seemed your body disappeared? Have you sang on stage and felt all faded, leaving you there glowing from the inside out? Have you cared so deeply for another that you yourself seemed to fade?

A balance is needed in giving and receiving, in fight and in flight, as well as in standing ground … peaceful, yet watchful and aware.

This existence is connected to other life, not only that which you can see, but also that which you can sense. Acknowledge this and you will be magnified, your world will grow wider, and more free.

Picture Perfect Stay In The Woods

Published October 14, 2018 by tindertender

Saturday was my day. I had a reservation to stay the night in a tree house, I won it in this summers company picnic raffle. Check-in wasn’t until four pm so I decided to go for a hike up a mountain. Boy, that really was something!

The views were beautiful, but after a mile climb up this steep, 3.8 mile trail I decided to visit the museum … haha.

The Interpretive Center had a story to tell.

They knew that the influx of population was damaging the plentiful flow of fish (among other life) yet they continued doing what they were doing anyway.

There was much beauty before, and also after, ‘civilization’ arrived.

I decided I would head on up the hill to the tree house. I was relieved to be able to check in 30 minutes early. This place has no TV, telephone or WiFi, so for the most part, I was there 30 feet in the air, in a cabin wrapped around, and anchored from, this beautiful tree.

I walked in to this house built around a tree and found … peace. A view of the mountains across the wide, beautiful water presented itself to me as if to say, “Welcome Home.”

I opened all windows and sat admiring the mountain and river view as the breeze poured inside the room.

Juniper Beatles are in season. There were hundreds of them! They were flitting this way and that. They are so beautiful. When they spread their wings the sun shines through them revealing a vibrant red color. This season is not for those who have the heeby jeebies around flying things. I captured the many that were in the house and released them outside.

The tree house gently swayed in the breeze. There is a sign posted inside near the door which reads, ” Be good to the tree, it is holding you up.”

I brought my music player with me but turned it off … the one sound from the city.

I decided to sit with my back against this huge, 42″ diameter tree. I asked it to recycle my breath, and my energies. I couldn’t help but also ask how it felt about being such a lovely tree surrounded by brothers and sisters who had been defiled, in a way … cut, shaped, sanded, bolted and nailed. I am curious if they are still in relation now that some no longer have roots.

I stepped outside for a view of the big rock faces and the walking path. Amazing how things look when the shadows begin to fall.

I prepared my dinner and sat back to enjoy the view.

Next morning, as the sun rose higher I watched as the trees danced in the wind. I can feel the sway of the tree, as the house moves with its ‘host’.

I peeled myself an orange for breakfast to eat with some cheese and crackers. I drank my water and watched as the forest came awake with the rising sun.

As I drove away, not ready to leave but the city called me home, I stopped and looked at the tree house from below. I saw that this majestic tree had also been defiled. Hooks were buried deep into it and cables attached from them going everywhere. The weight of this building hung from, and rested upon huge metal rods buried deep into the trees flesh.

Inside, there was only one spot that bled sap. The tree outside, in the walkway, bled huge amounts of sap, all the way around it. This tree house probably won’t last 1 or 2 more decades.

This is the first time I actually got to sleep 30 feet up into a tree. Yes, I was in a cabin, some people have done it without shelter!

I hope others will be able to stay at least one night in a tree house during their life. It’s really something to go to bed and then wake up seeing this beautiful tree, giving of itself to steady you and shelter you as you walk around it.

It is amazing how the heart and mind heals when surrounded by the forest, especially when part of the forest sleeps with you.

Beautiful Flower

Published May 30, 2018 by tindertender

This is a song for every girl who’s
Ever been through something she thought she couldn’t make it through
I sing these words because I was that girl too
Wanting something better than this
But who do I turn to?

Now we’re moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

‘Cause you’re beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient

This is a song for every girl who
Ever been through something she thought she couldn’t make it through
Girl you can make it through

I’m passing these words because I know you’re the one who
Knows there something better than this
And you’re gonna to define it

Now we’re moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

‘Cause you’re beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You will heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient
Yeah, you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient
Yeah you,
Yeah you,
Yeah you,
Yeah you,
Yeah you
Yeah you
Yeah you
Yeah you
Yeah you
