I prepare for the Full Moon ceremony

black-jaguar2As I prepare for Full Moon ceremony.. I have also been preparing for Springtime Medicine Lodge.. I have been working from the direction of the West, home of the Magician, The Energy of Introspection, going within to find the gifts of healing. The color of the West is Black, like the darkness of our shadows. The desire of the West is the desire for Order and Virtue. The fear of the West is the fear of Abandonment, and the emotions are Happiness and Shame. The Animal of the West is the Bear, that goes into the cave to hibernate, to seek within the darkness the gift of renewal. I send much Love, Blessings to you all.. Enjoy the Awesome energies of the Full Moon, make it a GREAT weekend.. I shall return next week! Namaste’ A’ho

CELEBRATE BIRTH OF WHITE BUFFALO – February 7th, 2015

WHITE BUFFALOThe White Buffalo are sacred to many Native Americans. The Lakota (Sioux) Nation has passed down the The Legend of the White Buffalo–a story now approximately 2,000 years old–at many council meetings, sacred ceremonies, and through the tribe’s storytellers. There are several variations, but all are meaningful, and tell of the same outcome. Have communication with the Creator through prayer with clear intent for Peace, Harmony and Balance for all life living in the Earth Mother.

Spirituality among Natives Americans and non-Native Americans has been a strong force for those who believe in the power of the Great Spirit or God.

It matters not what you call the Creator. What matters is that you pray to give thanks for your blessings and trust the guidance given to you from the world of Spirit. Many truths about Spirit are told and handed down from one generation to the next.

The legend of the White Buffalo Calf Woman tells how the People had lost the ability to communicate with the Creator. The Creator sent the sacred White Buffalo Calf Woman to teach the People how to pray with the Pipe. With that Pipe, seven sacred ceremonies were given for the people to abide in order to ensure a future with harmony, peace, and balance.

White Buffalo Calf Woman

Legend says that long ago, two young men were out hunting when from out of nowhere came a beautiful maiden dressed in white buckskin. One of the hunters looked upon her and recognizing her as a wakan, or sacred being, lowered his eyes. The second hunter approached her with lust in his eyes desiring her for his woman. White Buffalo Calf Woman beckoned the lustful warrior to her, and as he approached a cloud of dust arose around them causing them to be hidden from view. When the dust settled, nothing but a pile of bones lay next to her. As she walked toward the respectful young hunter, she explained to him that she had merely fulfilled the other man’s desire, allowing him, within that brief moment, to live a lifetime, die and decay. White Buffalo Calf Woman instructed the young man to go back to the People and tell them to prepare for her arrival to teach them of the way to pray. The young hunter obeyed. When White Buffalo Calf woman arrived with the sacred bundle (the prayer pipe) she taught the People of the seven sacred ways to pray. These prayers are through ceremonies that include the Sweat Lodge for purification; the Naming Ceremony for child naming; the Healing Ceremony to restore health to the body, mind and spirit; the adoption ceremony for making of relatives; the marriage ceremony for uniting male and female; the Vision Quest for communing with the Creator for direction and answers to one’s life; and the Sundance Ceremony to pray for the well-being of all the People.

When the teaching of the sacred ways was complete, White Buffalo Calf Woman told the people she would again return for the sacred bundle that she left with them. Before leaving, she told them that within her were the four ages, and that she would look back upon the People in each age, returning at the end of the fourth age, to restore harmony and spirituality to a troubled land. She walked a short distance, she looked back towards the people and sat down. When she arose they were amazed to see she had become a black buffalo. Walking a little further, the buffalo laid down, this time arising as a yellow buffalo. The third time the buffalo walked a little further and this time arose as a red buffalo. Walking a little further it rolled on the ground and rose one last time as a white buffalo calf signaling the fulfillment of the White Buffalo Calf prophecy.

The changing of the four colors of the White Buffalo Calf Woman represents the four colors of man–white, yellow, red and black. These colors also represent the four directions, north, east, south and west. The sacred bundle that was left to the Lakota people is still with the People in a sacred place on the Cheyenne River Indian reservation in South Dakota. It is kept by a man known as the Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe, Arvol Looking Horse.

The legend of the White Buffalo Calf Woman remains ever promising in this age of spiritual enlightenment and conscious awareness. In today’s world of confusion and war many of us are looking for signs of peace.

“With the return of the White Buffalo it is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe is being honored, and that the promises of prophecy are being fulfilled. White Buffalo signals a time of abundance and plenty.” (from Sams and Carson, Medicine cards)

Though harsh as the world we live in may be throughout recorded history there have been spiritual leaders teaching peace, hope and balance (synergy) amongst all life. This was taught by great teachers such as Jesus, Buddha, the Dali Lama’s, and Native American leaders.

Chief Crazy Horse, Chief Seattle, and Chief Red Cloud are a few of the visionary leaders who committed their lives to bring peace, and internal happiness to all who they touched. They were tangible signs of goodwill toward all men, women and children.

The Path Of The Sun

THE MEDICINE WHEEL OF PROTECTION

medicine-wheel

The Medicine Wheel of Protection is an ancient, daily practice of reconnecting and sealing with the Earth and the stars. It is highly effective at mitigating archontic intrusion by placing a sphere of sovereignty around us. The Wheel is best practiced as a morning ritual before beginning the day. The following procedure is given as a general outline and is meant to be personalized. Add your own elements to make the Wheel your own.

1. EAST – Yellow – Land of the Rising Sun – “I seek wisdom.”

Stand and determine which direction is East (the direction where the Sun rises). Medicine Wheels are always begun and entered from the East. Bring your hands together in prayer and honor the East. Aloud or silently to yourself, repeat the keynotes, “I honor the East, the Land of the Rising Sun. I seek wisdom.” Picture what lies to the East of you.

2. SOUTH – Red – Land of the Winds of Experience – “I experience.”

Turn 90-degrees and face South. Repeat the keywords, “I honor the South, the Land of the Winds of Experience. I seek experience.” Repeat the visualization of what lies to the South of you. The South is the part of the wheel that represents our sense of learning through playfulness and sensations. Our quest for wisdom is furthered by our experiences.

3. WEST – Black – Land of the Setting Sun – “I am transformed.”

Turn 90-degrees and face West. Repeat the keywords, “I honor the West, the Land of the Setting Sun. I am transformed.” Repeat the visualization with what lies to the West of you. It is traditional for a person’s body to be placed facing West when burial rituals are enacted because the West is the direction of ancestors.

4. NORTH – White – Land of the Winds of Change – “I am enlightened.”

Turn 90-degrees and face North. Repeat the keywords, “I honor the North, the Land of the Winds of Change. I am enlightened.” The North is regarded as the direction of Spirit, the place from which we are enlightened to wisdom. This step completes the first circuit of the sphere of the Medicine Wheel of Protection.

5. ABOVE – Father Sky – Galactic Center – God (The Originator, in the Gnostic texts)

Turn your head above, raise your arms to the sky, and honor the stars, the Galactic Center, and the heavens. Repeat “I honor Father Sky…” Honor what you feel comfortable with – God, Galactic Center, etc.

6. BELOW – Mother Earth – Gaia Sophia

Bow your head and bring your arms down to your sides. Honor Mother Earth/Gaia Sophia. Feel her energy move up from your feet and up through your body to your heart. Sophia’s energy resides in our hearts. Repeat “I honor Gaia Sophia…” Honor what you feel comfortable with – Mother Nature, Mary, etc.

7. SELF

Bring your arms to heart center and open them in an expanse as if you were hugging the world. This is the step where we place ourselves into the sphere of the Medicine Wheel. We place ourselves in the Wheel, ready to play our part in the dream. The Medicine Wheel of Protection is now in place.

*You can also send a line of energy from your third eye (like a laser line) across the grid to various places on Earth that are special to you. You may also find that animals (totems) that are special to you consistently appear in your mind’s eye in specific directions of the Wheel.

How Ayahuasca Can Revolutionize Psychotherapy

A look at the psychoactive brew that brings users a spiritual payoff for their “work”

Just before dusk, 18 strangers entered a yurt on a Midwestern homestead. Peruvian tapestries decorated the walls of the large, round structure, and rattles stood poised for ceremony.

The participants — professional men and women ages 35 to 65 — put on comfortable clothing and set up sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets. Everyone got a plastic bucket, cheerfully colored in green, red, or blue.
