‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for October 30th

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

Good ideas are the flower of the mind, waiting to bloom for the benefit of the thinker.

We are constantly in the process of manufacturing ideas. Every waking moment we are thinking continually, making mental images of that which we desire or need. Everything we see was first an idea in someone’s mind.

Ideas are fleeting messages that pass rapidly through the mind. Some of them are strong enough to impress the thinker. Many are not worth saving, but a few are very precious. They have to be sifted, sorted and analyzed for value. Then they must be acted on immediately, for they are very perishable. Once we lose an idea, it is seldom if ever recaptured.

Everyone has access to a better and happier life through ideas, if we can trust the Lord to give us the will and courage to follow through on them.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – October 30

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – October 30

“My children, you have forgotten the customs and traditions of your forefathers. …You have bought guns, knives, kettles, and blankets from the white man until you can no longer do without them; and what is worse you have drunk the poison firewater, which turns you into fools. Fling all these things away; live as your forefathers did before you.”

–Pontiac, ODOWA

We need to think as our forefathers did. They knew the culture and the customs. The culture taught them how to live in harmony with each other. We need to think like this again. We must because God-reliant. We don’t need the firewater. This liquid is very destructive to our native people. It kills our spirit. Our Indian people are happiest when we are spiritual. When we depend on anyone or anything else, we get off track. We need to talk to the Elders and find out what the old ways were. We need to ask them to teach us the culture, the tradition and the customs. This will help us become whole again.

My Maker, guide my path as you did my ancestors.

October 30 – Daily Feast

October 30 – Daily Feast

In retrospect, we have ignored common sense in favor of doing what we wanted to do. We wish we had not done it, but we said what we wanted to say, spoke out when it would have been better to stay quiet – we have overruled our common sense. Looking back again, when did we get off track? What little thing stung us into action? If we learn to hear the voice of wisdom we can overcome our foolishness. Wisdom never lets us down, but ignoring it will put away from us the best friend we can have.

The Daily Motivator for October 30th – Unplanned occurrences

Unplanned occurrences

Things will not always go the way you planned, but you don’t have to let that stop you. Remind yourself that you can adapt, adjust, and continue doing what’s important to you.

Often, the interruption itself is not what throws you off track. Your anger and disappointment may end up disrupting you longer than whatever interrupted you in the first place.

Go ahead and accept the fact that interruptions will come along and plans will have to be altered. Then, just make the adjustments and get on with life.

Some of those unplanned occurrences might actually turn out to contain pleasant surprises. Make the choice to live life’s value where you find it.

Instead of seeing the interruption as an excuse, see it as an opportunity. Let it strengthen your resolve and provide you with a reason to focus even more intently on making the progress you have chosen to make.

Life is filled with unplanned interruptions, and getting upset about them won’t do you a bit of good. Instead, let them come, let them go, and enjoy the richness of a positive, purposeful life no matter what.

The Daily OM for October 30 – Actively Participating

Actively Participating
Showing Up for Life

by Madisyn Taylor

If you show up for yourself in your life, the universe will show up for you.

The way we walk into a room says a lot about the way we live our lives. When we walk into a room curious about what’s happening, willing to engage, and perceiving ourselves as an active participant with something to offer, then we have really shown up to the party. When we walk into a room with our eyes down, or nervously smiling, we are holding ourselves back for one reason or another. We may be hurting inside and in need of healing, or we may lack the confidence required to really be present in the room. Still, just noticing that we’re not really showing up, and having a vision of what it will look and feel like when we do, can give us the inspiration we need to recover ourselves.

Even if we are suffering, we can show up to that experience ready to fully engage in it and learn what it has to offer. When we show up for our life, we are actively participating in being a happy person, achieving our goals, and generally living the life our soul really wants. If we need healing, we begin the process of seeking out those who can help us heal. If we need experience, we find the places and opportunities that can give us the experience we need in order to do the work we want to do in the world. Whatever we need, we look for it, and when we find it, we engage in the process of letting ourselves have it. When we do this kind of work, we become lively, confident, and passionate individuals.

There is almost nothing better in the world than the feeling of showing up for our own lives. When we can do this, we become people that are more alive and who have the ability to make things happen in our lives and the lives of the people around us. We walk through the world with the knowledge that we have a lot to offer and the desire to share it.

Hemp Seed Divination

HEMP SEED DIVINATION

 

At midnight on Halloween, go alone into the fields or a garden with a handful of hemp seeds. Scatter them in the dark, or toss them over your right shoulder, as you recite the following divinatory incantation:

 

HEMP SEED, I SAW THEE,

HEMP SEED, I SAW THEE,

AND HIM (OR HER) THAT IS TO BE MY TRUE LOVE

COME AFTER ME AND DRAW THEE.

 

Another incantations can be used like the following:

 

HEMP SEED I SOW;

HEMP SEED, GROW;

HE (OR SHE) THAT IS MY TRUE

LOVE COME AFTER ME AND MOW.

In some traditions, the last line of the incantation is “Come after me and pou thee” or “Come after me in shaw thee” (which means, to show thyself). Others add the following lines:

NOT IN HIS (OR HER) BEST

OR SUNDAY ARRAY,

BUT IN THE CLOTHES

HE (OR SHE) WEARS EVERY DAY.

You may have to repeat the incantation several times (some traditions call for it to be spoken nine times), but eventually the invoked apparition of your future spouse will appear behind you with a scythe to reap the magickally grown hemp. To see his or her face, you must—without fear in your heart—look over your left shoulder

Divination By Lead

DIVINATION BY LEAD

 

On Halloween night, fill an old spoon with scraps of lead and then hold it over the flame of a new white candle until the lead is completely melted. Pour it into a pail of cold water. The shape it assumes after it cools will reveal the trade of your future husband. For instance, if it takes on the appearance of a ship, this indicates that he will be a sailor; a book indicates a teacher; a lancet a doctor; and so forth.

Pulling The Kail

Pulling the Kail

 

A Halloween method of love divination popular among the Irish and Scottish peasantry in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was known as “pulling the kail.” It was carried out in the following manner: An unmarried woman, with her eyes shut or covered by a blindfold, would creep into a bachelor’s garden (or kail yard) and, as the clock struck the witching hour of midnight, grasp at random for a stalk and pluck it from the earth.

 

According to folklore, the size, shape, and texture of the plant were able to reveal the appearance of the woman’s future husband. If it was tall and straight, it was an indication that he would be strong and in good health. If it was shriveled, it meant he would be a sickly person. A well-grown stalk indicated that he would be a handsome man, while one that was crooked indicated marriage to a hunchback or a stingy man. A closed white stalk indicated an elderly mate, and an open green one meant a man who was younger. If any earth clung to the roots, this portended a man of great wealth, while roots that came out of the ground free of any dirt were indicative of precisely the opposite.

 

Even the way in which the heart of the stem tasted was used to determine the natural temper and disposition of the future mate. For instance, one that tasted sweet and tender indicated a man who was kind and gentle, but one that possessed a sour or bitter taste pointed to a man whose disposition was disagreeable.

 

If the plant possessed any abnormalities, they were believed to reveal the same physical or mental traits of the future husband. For instance, if it had a club root, the future husband would be afflicted with a club foot, and so forth.

 

In England, a variation of this method called for an unmarried woman to go into a garden at midnight on Halloween and cut a cabbage. This supposedly invoked an apparition of her future husband. If no apparition appeared, this was taken as an indication of spinsterhood.

 

Cabbage-stalk divinations were also performed by bachelors to find out if marriage was in the offing for them, and to discover what their future wives would be like. The shape of the stalk— long, short, thin or fat—was believed to reveal the shape of their future
