“When that spirit comes, we don’t ever ask questions. If I don’t understand, I just hold onto it. Then later down the road, maybe in a couple of years, I understand what that spirit meant.”
— Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA
At certain spiritual events or happenings, it is possible for the spirits to come. Sometimes these spirits look like sparklers of light, sometimes you can feel them, sometimes they will look like live human beings. The spirits always come for a reason. When we deal with the spirit world, we need to be patient. The Great Spirit will tell us the meaning of these happenings when He is ready.
“Everything is laid out for you. Your path is straight ahead of you. Sometimes it’s invisible but it’s there. You may not know where it’s going, but still you have to follow that path. It’s the path to the Creator. That’s the only path there is.”
— Leon Shenandoah, ONONDAGA
Everything on the earth has a purpose and a reason for its existence. Every human being is a warrior and every warrior has a song written in his/her heart and that song must be sung or the soul forever remains restless. This song is always about serving the Great Spirit and helping the people. This song is always sung for the people. Many times I need to learn much about the difficulties of life. I need to know this, so I must experience it. Then I can be of use to the people. Because I am experiencing difficulty does not mean I have left the path or that I have done something wrong. It means I’m doing the will of the Great Spirit during these times of testing. I need to pray constantly to keep a good attitude.
Great Spirit, this I know – You will never leave me, only my doubting makes it seem like You do. This I know – Your love is always dependable, only my doubting makes it seem like You do. Today remove the doubts from my belief system and allow me to stand straight and see You with straight eyes.
“To me, the wisdom the Elders have to manifest is in teaching people how to live in harmony and balance with each other and the Earth.”
— Sun Bear, CHIPPEWA
You cannot give away what you don’t have. You need to give away what you have in order to keep it. Our Elders have lived their lives with a lot of trial and error. They have experienced how to do things well and they have experienced what didn’t work for them as they grew old. They know things about living that we don’t know. So, through the years the Elders have gained wisdom. They usually have a whole different point of view because of all their experiences. There are two ways to learn. Someone tells us what they did and we do the same thing or someone tells us what they did and we choose not to do it. Both of these paths will help us to live.
My Creator, teach me about choices and decisions and consequences. Put an Elder in my life to guide me.
Sometimes I think you want to end destruction, and at other times I believe it is what you want most.
Oh … how I wish I could see clearly. “Let your actions be done in the Light of Love”.
What does one ‘think’ while trying not to? Perhaps it is in this ‘trying’ which causes static and interference, creating a barrier for authentic messages from beyond.
Can I just think something light and fluffy? Drama … light and fluffy … light and fluffy. It’s only 6 o’clock.
This is what I need to know. How can I assist in stopping the annihilation of the world, and other worlds? A little guidance would be helpful if you have it to give. Information on that topic certainly is not going to come from anyone intent on destruction.
What are you thinking while trying not to think?
The light has been covered by a ‘lamp shade’ which has two streamers hanging from it, one to the left and one to the right. Which streamer turns the light on, and which one turns it off? Are their multiple hands yanking on the streamers? On off, on off, on off, causing a form of chaos to settle in the surroundings? An uncertainty develops … which is the best time to relax and let the mind drift.
It is quite interesting that I should come across this video this morning.
I will never forget being so afraid of what was ‘outside’ that I sat frozen ‘inside’. I had to urinate so badly that I finally said to myself, fine, if someone or something ends my life when I walk out these doors, so be it … I walked outside, and no one was there to harm me. I walked straight into my overwhelming fear and found it to be nil.
As time progresses I find that the reactions I receive from people are me from a previous time in life. I often find myself saying that was me when … I behaved just like that!
I resonate with what she says about the spirit being sort of separate from every day life … and still I watch as it is uniting with all else as well. It is taking time, but it is happening.
The running away she mentions is so true! I ran and ran and ran, and then I got tired of running, I got tired of the same old story playing out in my life. So I dealt with the pain, I stopped all the things I used to do to try and bury the pain and the shame. I then began to understand that what happened to me was not anything but experiencing others in this world … their story, their journey did not belong to me, it was only experienced by me. This brought much relief and freedom. Of course the understanding never ends, it morphs as it needs to, in time.
The union of vibratory structures, bodies and colors extends beyond that which we can see. It is amazing how large this life really is.
When you hum, the muscles in the face, neck, head and shoulders relax. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system and triggers relaxation response in the body and helps reduce unproductive thinking and negativity.
Vulnerability is a real issue for many in today’s world. Lock the doors and windows at night, especially in the city. The future will be about wide open spaces, and while the sense of being vulnerable will still be present, this vulnerability will be based in trust, of instinct and beauty, rather than fear.
The sun is rising.
In stillness we come to know our intimate union with all of Creation. Disconnecting from the distractions of this current reality will help solidify the stepping in this world, and help find balance.
Since the Spirit remains always, we are connected to our ancestors and all of those with them, from the beginning of time, and before, to now. There is a wealth of knowledge and strength at our disposal should we simply ask for it to be shared, and trust that it be given.
Taking part in ceremonial practices using pieces that have spiritual significance, we merge with the essence of the earth and those who are beyond the auric field. This blending together is the most gracious gift present, and it is for all who desire it.
