Elder’s Meditation of the Day – June 17

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – June 17

“Your power comes from the songs.”

–Ethel Wilson, COWICHAN

If you do not know any of the songs, ask an Elder to teach you. Get yourself a drum. When you sing a song and play the drum, you’ll be surprised how your mind, body, and spirit will react. Everything becomes calm and joyful. Our bodies love the songs. The songs allow us to touch the hand of the Creator. When we sing and touch the Great Spirit’s hand, He gives us power. Songs are another way to pray.

My Grandfather, teach me a song today.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – May 26

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – May 26

“The man who sat on the ground in his tipi meditating on life and its meaning, accepting the kinship of all creatures and acknowledging unity with the universe of things was infusing into his being the true essence of civilization.”

–Luther Standing Bear, OGLALA SIOUX

There is a concept that says you move toward and become that which you think about. If we think about everything as interconnected and interrelated, we will begin to accept the greater whole and that there is a power who is in charge. If we see the cycles of life, if we see the inner powers, if we see the interdependence of the universe, then we will participate in a harmonious way. We all need to pray and meditate on this. We need to understand the property of unity.

My Creator, let me have the insights of nature and give me the power of acceptance.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – May 15

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – May 15

“We must have respect and understanding for women and all female life on this Earth which bears the sacred gift of life.”

–Traditional Circle of Elders. ONONDAGA

At a gathering of Native Elders we were told that many men of today had lost their ability to look at the Woman in a sacred way. They said we were only looking at Her in a physical sense and had lost the ability to look at Her sacredness. They said the Woman has a powerful position in the Unseen World. She has the special ability to bring forth life. They told us to start showing Her respect and to look upon her in a sacred manner. We must start this today.

Grandfather, show me how to see in a sacred way.

“All the stones that are around here, each one has a language of its own. Even the earth has a song.”

—- Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA

To believe that every tree, plant and insect can talk takes an open mind. Go by yourself into nature and sit quietly. Then pick up a rock and listen to your thoughts. After a while, put that rock down and pick up another rock. Your thoughts will change. These are the voices and wisdom of the Stone People. Each one has different wisdom and they are willing to share their wisdom with you. Many of the Stone People are very old and very wise.

Great Spirit, let every rock and leaf be my teacher.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – April 28

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – April 28

“Indians living close to nature and nature’s ruler are not living in darkness.”

–Walking Buffalo, STONEY

There are many Indian people who are living according to nature and according to ceremony and culture. They may not have a lot of material things, but that doesn’t mean they are not successful. What is success anyway? Can success be measured by material things? What is it we are really chasing anyway? The Elders say that what everyone really wants is to be happy and have a peaceful mind. Material things by themselves do not bring happiness and peace of mind. Only spiritual things bring happiness. When we live a spiritual life we will not have darkness. Instead, we will be happy.

Great Spirit, today, let me walk the Red Road.

“The base of all things is love, respect.”

–Vickie Downey, TEWA/Tesuque Pueblo

The greatest weapon of any Spiritual Warrior is love. Love will change minds; love will forgive; love will let go; love will cause good luck; love will heal; love will cry; love will get rid of resentments; love will overcome fear. Love loves love. Any human who is loving will be guaranteed respect. Respect loves love. We need to love and respect ourselves.

Grandmother, Grandfather, today, lead me on the path of love.

A Prayer/Meditation I Do Daily

LIns web site

Good morning Universe thank you for all my family and I have been given.

Good morning Ra, I thank you for your warmth and energy,

Good morning Mother Earth thank you for your grounding and energy.

Good morning Air, Water, Fire, Earth, the four Winds and Direction, (meaning the Cardinal Points/Watchtowers),

All our fellow living things on, above and below the waters;

On, above, and below the earth;

and in the air.

Thank you for being part of us and allowing us to be part of you.

I then go on to thank my Guardian Angels and those of my family and friends.

I thank my Spirit Guides and Ancestors for helping to guide me daily and keep me on my true life path.

There is more but it is on a more personal note so I will not share it here. I feel it is very important to thank those deities and other entities that helps us daily in our lives.  The reason I thank the God, Ra, and the Goddess, Mother Earth, but not all Gods and Goddesses I work with is to me they are my patrons for all I do. Without the help of Ra lighting the world we would always be in darkness. If not for all Mother Earth endures with us as well as other beings living on her, lets face it we would not even be here. So the next time you do you morning prayers or meditation or whatever you may call it try to remember to thank the Gods, Goddesses, Elements and other entities you work with in your magick or keep you safe from harm and/or danger. Doesn’t everybody like to here a thank you for the job they do or the help they give?

Thank you all for reading my work.

Blessed be.
