During this time of remembrance of the ‘wholiness’ within each of us, may all your dreams be fulfilled. In this next thirteen-moon cycle, may the Light within you shine as a beacon and attract to you all that you need to support your life’s mission.
“You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. The Sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nest in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours…. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.”
- Black Elk – Oglala Sioux
One of the many names I have been given by Indigenous Elders over the years is “Xochi”. “XochiQuetzal” is the Mayan Goddess who teaches us the cycles of Life – from seed to plant; plant to bud; bud to flower; flower to fruit; fruit to decay; decay to death and death to seed reborn. She is also the Goddess of the flute and drum. As always, when a name has been gifted to me, it fits.
Even as a child, I noticed that when I breathed out, the trees breathed in. When the trees breathe out, the rain begins to fall, the earth is nourished, and the plants that feed us begin to grow. So it is with all things. Energy MUST flow. It is a current, circular in motion.
Many of the modern people of Earth have forgotten this basic principle. We are awakening to a ‘new’ paradigm, based on this most ancient of teachings. It’s interesting to watch and see who understands – who knows how to work with energy, and who has yet to learn. It’s even more interesting to observe my own thoughts and actions, and see the places where I’m still learning.
We each have a purpose in being on the planet at this time. We have a personal and planetary mission to fulfill. Mine is to share the wisdom that has been passed on to me by indigenous elders the world over, in order to help people to understand and act in harmony with All Our Relations. Interestingly enough, what has been known by indigenous peoples since the beginning, is now being supported scientifically by Quantum Physics.
We are the Dreamers, and we ARE the dream!
I have a dream. I think it’s the dream of many of us today. I dream that my work will be so highly valued that others will want to support me, so that I can fulfill this incessant urge to share the teachings I carry. I dream that I will be able to go wherever I am called without effort, stress or worry – knowing that my bills are paid and the home-fires are burning sweetly. I dream of a community of people who live, listen, love, laugh, play and pray together in order to support one another’s visions. I dream of communities like this sparking, and spreading over the face of Mother Earth. I carry this dream, not just for myself, but for all of us.
In the old days, I mean, the really old days – this was the norm. The Medicine Person, Healer, Teacher, Shaman was provided with food and lodging, and all their needs were met by the tribe. That way, they were free to pursue their studies and share their wisdom.
In the Christian church, this tenet has been upheld by tithing. To understand this principle, one must be able to see how energy flows. The Circle of Energy must be completed, or it short-circuits. One of the main precepts of manifestation is that “what goes out must come round” (there’s that circle again!) We imagine; we hold our vision and offer it to the Universe; we feel the joy of manifestation – and we return that energy to the Universe, time and again, so that it may continue to fund our visions.
So in this Christ-mass season, my prayer is that we will all learn to support each other in every way. “What the $#*%” and “The Secret” tell us that we create our own reality. It’s true. May we all be blessed with true acceptance of our own wealth, and the desire to share our abundance with each other, that we may all be free to learn, grow and share in ease, peace and joy.
Blessings to all and to all a GREAT DREAM!!
