“…Grandmother the Earth. That power is here all the time. It is continuous, and nobody controls it.” –Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA
There are certain powers that the human being has no choice but to obey. We cannot negotiate or barter with this power. Our choice is either to conform or to live out of harmony. Whatever our choice, it will be the end result in our lives that we notice. So it is with the powers of the Earth which produce life. The Earth has the life force power. If anyone plants a seed, the seed will grow. The Earth treats everyone equally. The human cannot interfere, only obey. We should all show great respect for the Earth and Her powers.
Great Spirit, today, let me honor and respect the power of the Grandmother, the Earth.

Let The I AM Become A Reality To You
A simple faith, a simple KNOWING is all that is needed to bring forth My truths and manifest them here in your lives and living. Life is not complicated – it is absolutely straightforward. If you find it is difficult or complicated it is of your own making. Change your whole outlook, change your thinking and you will see how simple and straightforward life can really be. Lean on Me, identifying yourself completely with Me. Let the I AM become a reality to you, become part of you so there is no separateness and all is One. Absorb all these wondrous truths. Feel them become a living vibrating force within you and then peacefully and quietly live and move and have your being in these truths until there is nothing else and you KNOW the wonder and glory of our Oneness, until you at last identify yourselves completely with Me and know your divine heritage, that I AM within you.
One of the co-founders of the Findhorn Community, Eileen Caddy, received guidance from the “still, small voice within” and shared it with the community for more than 40 years until she passed away in 2006. We continue this tradition as her guidance is as relevant today as it was when she received it.
“We as men should not fear our mates; we should listen to their counsel.” –Oren R. Lyons, Spokesman, Traditional Circle of Elders
The Elders say the men should look at women in a sacred way. The men should never put women down or shame them in any way. When we have problems, we should seek their counsel. We should share with them openly. A woman has intuitive thought. She has access to another system of knowledge that few men develop. She can help us understand. We must treat her in a good way.
Great Spirit, let me look upon the woman in a good way.
“In our traditional ways, the woman is the foundation of the family.” –Haida Gwaii Traditional Circle of Elders
We must pay attention to the role of the woman in the family. She is the heartbeat of the family. She should be respected and treated in a sacred manner. We should listen to her guidance. We should help make her role easier by helping with chores or just telling her how much we appreciate her.
Great Spirit, I ask you to bless all the moms.
“People and nations who understand the Natural Law are self-governing, following the principles of love and respect that insure freedom and peace.” –Traditional Circle of Elders, NAVAJO-HOPI Joint Use Area
The Natural Laws work hand-in-hand with the circle. Each part of a circle will look to the center and will see something different. For example, if you put an irregular shaped object in the center of a circle and you have people standing in a circle around the object, each one will describe it differently. Everyone in the circle will be right. Only by honoring and respecting everyone’s input, can the truth about the object be revealed. We need to learn to honor differences.
My Creator, let me honor all differences.

Shoulder Your Responsibilities With Real Joy In Your Heart
Judge not any soul and condemn not, you simply open your heart and love your fellowman and try to understand and lift, never drag down. Be very loving and very tolerant and seek that divine spark within each one and fan it into a flame. You each have your part to play in the whole scheme of things, play it to the full and be everlastingly grateful that your eyes have been opened and shoulder your responsibilities with real joy in your heart and a longing to give of your very best.
