November 20 – Daily Feast

Always take into account what your mind has in it. What of the world have you taken in and stored in all the little crevices and avenues of your mind and thinking? Guard your mind, for out of it comes what you think is possible for you. If you have stored defeat and rejection, those are the only things you have to draw on. Our voices record everything we say within our minds and hearts. Blessing or swear words, sarcasm or snappy cynicism, all are there, and all have a part in ruling life. This is the hardest part to sweep out and control, but it can be done – and it is better than storing trash.

~ Neither anger nor fury shall be found lodging in their minds. ~

Current Moon Phase for October 25th – Waning Gibbous

Gibbous Moon

(waning /56% illumination)

This is a tremendous time of transmutation. All of the prior elements are coming together for a final burst of creative output. You have seen a clear view of your own needs and the posture of significant others. Now the accumulation of that input is leading to a deep, core change within you. In this phase, you will naturally be inclined to seek higher guidance so that you can emerge from this transformation successfully. The Disseminting Moon favors sharing what you have learned (and are learning) with others.

“We create that bad among ourselves. We create it; then we try to call it devil, Satan, or evil. But man creates it. There is no devil. Man creates the devil.”

–Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA

Inside every human being are the laws and codes by which we should live. These laws and codes are communicated to us through a little voice. When we are still, this voice guides us. If we choose to live out of harmony, our lives become filled with anger, hate, selfishness, dishonesty, etc. When these things appear in our lives, we give up accountability and blame it on something or someone else. If we want to live in harmony, we need to pray our way back to living the principles the Creator gave us.

Grandfather, today let me walk with the principles.

Invocation to the Spirits of the Air

Hail to the Spirits of the Winds!
Hail to the Powers of the East,
The Morning and the Spring Equinox,
The cool breeze that awakens!
Hail to the bird that rides the skies,
Hail to the bat that swoops in the night,
Hail to the fragile butterfly on the flower,
Hail to the bee that sings her song,
Viewing the world from high above our heads!
Hail to the Power of Mind that we focus,
Hail to the Wings of Memory that we write,
Hail to the Beak of Thought that uses it.
Hail to the breath in our bodies,
Every one reminding us that we still live.
Hail to the gentle breath that moves the pollen
From green stem to green stem, bringing the fruit,
Hail to the strong wind that tosses the windmill’s arms,
Driving the clouds across the sky,
Hail to the tornado that writhes in the air,
Causing awe and terror in our hearts!
Hail to the Power of Words that we speak,
Of communication, of transmission of ideas,
Without which we would all be fumbling in silence.

(All then toss into the air whatever offerings they have for the spirits. Words written on small pieces of paper are most common, and can be wishes or blessings as well. Divination via the winds is then done, either with slips of paper or with arrows or from watching the omens of the flights of birds.)

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – October 22

“Growth is a painful process.”

–Wilma Mankiller, CHEROKEE

Whenever we grow, we usually need to let go of emotional attachments. Letting go can be painful. Sometimes growth allows us to deal with fear. All fear can fit into two categories: one, we’re going to lose something we have, and two, we’re not going to get something we want. Both of these categories can cause pain. The best way to grow is to pray to the Great Spirit and ask Him to guide and protect us. All growth is guided by God.

My Creator, guide my growth today and give me Your love and courage to help my pain.

Life is a decision, a personal decision. We can stand on drifting sand and believe that whatever will be, will be, or we can stand firmly on principle that if something is wrong we can change it. Instead of nursing pulse-taking tendencies and listening to every commercial on what is available for medical treatment, remember our instructions: Let the weak say, “I am strong.” We can become victims of temporary relief or we can separate ourselves from the hype and discover renewal that is not temporary – but eternal. Relief by the Spirit is a reality – and totally free.

Today’s Tarot Card for October 20th is The Hanged Man

The Hanged Man

Sunday, Oct 20th, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Traditionally, the card known as the Hanged Man usually indicates a lack of ability to help oneself through independent action. This energy is arrested and awaiting judgment. With this card, there is no avenue for the will to regain control until the situation has passed.

This represents a good time to be philosophical, to study and meditate upon the position you find yourself in, and form resolutions for the moment you become free again. Only those who possess wisdom, patience and optimism will be able to see through limitations, including possible humiliation, to grasp the inspiring lesson one can gain from such an experience.

The Daily Motivator for Oct. 14th – Your best day yet

Your best day yet

You are here, on this day, with dreams, desires, challenges, opportunities,  and the ability to successfully deal with it all. So give this day a solid,  meaningful, positive purpose and claim the great value it offers.

Make the choice to make some progress in a direction of your choosing.  Instead of merely letting the time pass, put life and love, substance and  experience into that time.

Think of what a great opportunity you have with each day that comes your way.  You have the opportunity to make a difference, to truly change the world, and to  live your precious life in new and joyful ways.

Look back and recall the best day you’ve ever experienced, and make the  choice to make this one even better. The quality of each day depends on what you  put into it, so start right now to put your best into this day that you  have.

Instead of merely wishing for what could be or complaining about what has  been, you can do something much more powerful. You can act, right here and now,  to significantly raise the quality of your life experience.

Today is happening, so take an active and positively supportive role. Feel  your authentic purpose, live this day with that purpose, and make it the best  day yet.

Your Animal Spirit for October 2nd is

Your Animal Spirit for Today
October 2, 2013

Bear

Bear represents a time of reflection and stillness—a time of entering the inner cave of  Self to contemplate life’s challenges. Bear often appears during times of confusion and unrest—those unsettling moments when you turn to everyone you know for answers—everyone except yourself. Go within, ask the hard questions—then listen.

Daily Motivator for August 12th – Go the distance

Go the distance

Though the road ahead is long and challenging, take the next step now. There  is much to be done, and you can get it done by making good use of every day, of  every moment.

When faced with a difficult task it’s natural to feel overwhelmed. The best  way to get past that feeling is not to give up, but to get busy and make some  solid progress.

Unexpected challenges will arise, obstacles will block your path, and it will  feel like the world is against you. When that happens, the key to feeling better  about your situation is to do something positive and proactive with it.

Remind yourself that in this moment all is well, because you are here and  able to make a difference. This moment is the sum of everything you have, so  choose to feel good about it and to do good with it.

To assure the best of what is to come, make the best of what is right now.  Instead of dreading what you imagine in the future, embrace and make positive  use of the reality of the present.

You can absolutely go the distance if you’ll take it one positive, productive  moment at a time. Live fully now, and you’ll be immensely thankful you did, for  a long time to come.
