‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for March 11th

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

What is it that keeps us from doing the creative things we want to do? Fear of venturing and losing, fear of the unknown. And yet, every day of our lives we venture and seldom acknowledge the fact that we didn’t lose. We too often accomplish something because circumstances forced a courage we could not muster from mere desire.

Frequently we must simply have the audacity to lay aside the taboos we have built for ourselves, for fear of appearing foolish, and follow a creative curiosity.

When Robert Louis Stevenson wrote, “Give me a young man with brains enough to make a fool of himself,” he didn’t mean intentionally acting foolishly. He meant that a fearlessness of appearing foolish can enable us to step outside the realms of what others would call the limits.

The simplest ventures often bring joy to many, particularly to those who in the beginning dared to stand on their own chances of winning or losing.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – March 11

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – March 11

“The symbol of wholeness, represented by the medicine wheel, is still being used in D/Lakota ceremonies today. The center where the “X” crosses is considered the home of Tunkasila, Wakan-Tanka, God. I speculated, `If this is the symbol of wholeness, the symbol of the psyche, with Wakan-Tanka at the center, then Wakan-Tanka or God would be within you.'”

–Dr. A.C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA

The Medicine Wheel represents everything. All the directions originate from the center outward. The center is the home of the Creator. The Medicine Wheel represents the human being. At our center is the home of the Great Spirit. This is why we are spiritual. The easiest way for us to find God and talk to Him, is for us to become centered. This means, relax our bodies, still our minds, let go of our emotions and listen quietly. Shhh. Be still.

My Creator, let me walk in the stillness today.

March 11 – Daily Feast

March 11 – Daily Feast

Can you see the wind? Can you see the fragrance of flowers floating on the breezes? Can you see thought or what it is that changes a tree from bare limbs and brown leaves to lush green? Can you see love or joy or peace? We can only see evidence of these invisible things, and it is enough to make us know they do exist. The substance of life is so evident, so real and beautiful. Why is it that we ever question the existence of our Creator, who set all things in motion? Are we so base, so grounded that unless it gives us momentary pleasure, feeds our starving appetites, we cannot recognize the greatest help available? It is Galun lati, the Great Holy Spirit, invisible but more real than all we see that is tangible.

~ We see the changes of day and night….the seasons, the stars, the moon, the sun. Anyone must know it is the work of some one more powerful than man. ~

Daily Motivator for March 11th – Live your life

Live your life

Actual problems are problem enough. Don’t let yourself be stopped by the mere  possibility of problems.

Go ahead and live your life in the way you choose. Though the challenges and  setbacks will come along, you have what it takes to deal with them as they  appear.

Instead of being intimidated by what might go wrong, let yourself be inspired  by all that can go right. Make the choice to live the best life you can imagine,  and make the commitment to put forth whatever effort is required for that.

Let the resistance you encounter serve as confirmation that you’re moving  forward. Let the problems keep you motivated to fulfill your most treasured  dreams.

Live your life, today, right now, with the passion, attention and love it  deserves. Embrace the abundance and add your own special meaning to it all.

Remind yourself of what a truly great opportunity you have with the dawning  of every single day. You have the miraculous gift of life, with its limitless  possibilities, so live it with purpose, courage, richness and joy.

— Ralph Marston

The Daily OM For March 11th – As You Believe

As You Believe
Create Completeness

by Madisyn Taylor

When we affirm that we are fulfilled rather than deficient, we are asserting that contentment is a natural way of being.

The creative power of the universe is infinite. A single molecule’s destiny is as important as the consequences of the largest supernova. Human potential is subject to this power, but because we are sentient beings, each of us is permitted to choose whether we will struggle against it or work in tandem with it. When we give voice to our desires through focused meditation or solicit the help of spirit guides, we draw upon the universe’s creative power to achieve certain ends. However, because our words are not all the universe hears, the response we receive may surprise us. The discourse we establish through our appeals is a blend of speech, thought, intention, and subconscious reflection. When we ask the universe for something, the unspoken message is that what we want does not exist, and the universe accepts this as truth. Conversely, we manifest completeness through affirmations in which we declare our desires as if we have already obtained them.

When we affirm that we are fulfilled instead of articulating deficiencies, we are asserting that contentment is a natural and necessary element of human existence. Our essence is an expression of fulfillment—the universe wants to satisfy our needs and desires. When we describe our realities in positive terms, we are not denying the challenges inherent in existence. We choose not to focus on lack or dissatisfaction because we understand that the energy of our thoughts will determine the response we receive to our entreaties. Ask yourself how you would feel if your wishes were granted, and then allow yourself to internalize that emotional state. Try to create a picture of satisfaction so vivid that its reality is unquestionable and tell the universe that your vision is fact. At the close of your appeal, express your gratitude, as it is your acknowledgment of the truth of your fulfillment that will set the creative power of the universe into motion.

Working in perfect unison with the creative power of the universe will empower you to manifest spiritual realities in your material existence. As you affirm the beauty, peace, and goodness that already exist within in your life, your capacity to sense and understand their influence will become increasingly sophisticated. To meet your needs and achieve your desires, you need then only banish all thoughts of emptiness so that the energy of completeness can attract fullness into your being.

Goofer Dust

Goofer Dust

Goofer is a Kikongo word (kufwa) that means ‘to die’ or ‘to kill’ – this stuff ain’t for the faint hearted. Goofer dust is used to cause harm and illness, but can also be used to create domination over a loved one. Be under no illusions, as far as I am aware goofer dust is only ever used to cause harm.

Some of the ingredients you can use in goofer dust are graveyard dirt, dried ground snakeskin, sulphur, salt, ash, ground bones, powdered insects, herbs (mullein works well), spices, black or red pepper, magnetic sand and dried manure.

Goofer dust is used in much the same way as hot foot powder; it is foot track magick. Sprinkle the powder in the path of an enemy. The goofer dus is then taken up through their feet to do its work. Again, as with all powders, it can also be utilized by sprinkling on the victim’s clothing or bedding or added to a mojo bag or bottle and burried on their property.

Laying a trick with this powder is referred to as having ‘goofered’ someone i.e. cursed.

Using goofer dust in a love spell will cause the intended people pain and suffering in order to force them to submit to the will of the person laying the trick on them. This interferes with the free will of any person.

To counteract or reverse a goofering you can use spiritual washes, candle spells and uncrossing rituals.
