Literally the Stars are aligned. And the new Moon in Scorpio. The depth of my own prayers in the lodge, the heart of the pourer. The energetic healing from Shamrock. A visualization from the Star Nation combined with breathing into my root, into Maka, clearing chakra and connecting to the Golden All – truly mind altering. My physicality too. The medicine of the Black Horse, new rattles created in a sacred way from this hide – all whispering their gift for me while sending up a call to their new partner – who will come to adopt them? The teachings of Chief Avrol Looking Horse and Chief Phil Lane, Jr.. The gorgeous (m) Northern Flicker whose back patch is shimmering fluorescent orange, just begging me to follow – drum with me. Shadow work. The teachings of the 16 Mysteries. A lone Canada Goose. Why are you alone? Are you like me? Who are you calling to? Am I the one? The word for this 54th year was adventure, am I missing something? Many more come honking their communal calls. Joy is elevated. My dreamscape – so many delights to be acted upon – where to start? Waterlily by Ella Cara Deloria. Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. Each with invaluable words, lessons and inspiration. The power and courage of my own heart and words. Falcon. Forgiveness. Love. Deep Gratitude. Snow in the mountains. Echo Lake slowly filling up with the rains. The rejection of Keystone XL – arms linked in solidarity.
Everything is going to be alright. Winds of change have come.

Having spent the past year immersed in the teachings of Hereditary Chief Phil Lane, Jr. I am a little wiser than I used to be, more sure of the direction we are going as a people and proud to be included in his Circle. And I love to hear him laugh! http://www.fwii.net/
Chief Arvol Looking Horse, among many other things valuable, is the founder of World Peace and Prayer Day. Annually since 1986 he rides horseback in the Bigfoot Memorial Ride to honor his ancestors in the massacre of Wounded Knee. http://wolakota.org/index.html
Both Brother Phil and Brother Avrol can be heard speaking on the Shift Networks Global Indigenous Wisdom Summit, a free three-day powerhouse of Indigenous Elders and Youth speaking for the needs of our times. No matter your philosophical or spiritual beliefs much wisdom will be shared during these days that can positively affect the way we live and relate to one another and the Earth. A’ho !
