   There is a River - Statement by the Hopi Elders

 

   There is a river flowing very fast. It is so swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel that they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly. Know that the river has a destination. The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river.

   Keep our eyes open and our heads above the waters. And I say, see who is in there with you and Celebrate! At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment we do, our spiritual growth comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather your self’s together. Banish the word Struggle from your attitude and vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in Celebration!


   This profound statement and advice based upon ancient prophecy is obviously valid for these times but how does one do this push off into the swift river?

   "What you put your attention on is what you become conscious of."

   This is the one rule that you cannot break. It is inescapable. So let's use this principle to our advantage.

  The Mayan calendar has now been scientifically proven to be the flow rate of all of Creation for the last 16.4 billion years. By placing your attention on the individual daily energies described by the Mayan calendar you’re "Tun-ing" your consciousness to the flow of all of Creation. (The River)

   This is what the Mayan civilization had going for it. They lived their lives in "Holy Time" intuitively flowing with creation.

   Yes, they knew that their civilization would come to an end. Just as the flower wilts and dies to become the fruit and seeds, the Maya knew and prophesized their own demise. If nothing dies, nothing new grows, and this they did know. We feel this as well. Deeply we understand that our current systems and standards must die for a new way of life and experience to flourish.

   It is your choice of course, flow or be drowned. You already know this is true.

   The Mayan Calendar and Conversion Codex is the simplest method to find and re-find the current Mayan calendar date from the Gregorian calendar and contains the true traditional meanings of the energies from the Kiche Mayan priests. It can be used to instantly find a personal birth energy and true purpose of your life this time around. Also, it presents a daily Mayan Oracle to assist your journey to your goals.

   A tool for consciousness to join the flow of Creation is and was always the true purpose of the Mayan Calendar.

   Here is your opportunity
   To get Tun-ed in,
   To the Tzolkin,
   To join the harmony,
   To heal our Mother,
   To join the Galactic community,
   As warmly loved,
   And loving, Sister / Brother.

   Welcome to the Evolution

A SIOUX STORY

The Creator gathered all of Creation and said, "I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that they create their own reality."

The eagle said, "Give it to me, I will take it to the moon."

The Creator said, "No. One day they will go there and find it."

The salmon said, "I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean."

"No. They will go there too."

The buffalo said, "I will bury it on the Great Plains."

The Creator said, "They will cut into the skin of the Earth and find it even there."

Grandmother Mole, who lives in the breast of Mother Earth, and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said, "Put it inside of them."

And the Creator said, "It is done."

Renewing the Sacred Hoop
From: Plaskow, Judith and Christ, Carol 1989 Weaving the Visions, Harper, San Francisco

DHYANI YWAHOO

Dhyani Ywahoo is a member of the Etowah Band of the Eastern Tsalagi (Cher- okee) Nation. Trained by her grandparents, she is the twenty-seventh generation to carry the ancestral wisdom of the Ywahoo Lineage. She is Spiritual Director of the Sunray Meditation Society, an international spiritual society dedicated to planetary peace.

The quality of our laughter and joy, the knowledge of our voices, thoughts, and actions are weaving beauty around the land. There is a harmony; there is a song. All things move in a circle. It is from the womb of emptiness that all is made manifest. Our thoughts make sound waves upon the planet, wind currents upon the stream. As our thoughts become clarified in the wind of our personal experience so, too, they become clarified around the planet through bioresonance. We can sense at many levels an awakening, a song arising clearly in the hearts of many people, the community of human beings sharing an environment. The song is of planetary peace; individually it means each of us recognizing the beauty of ourselves and one another. What we see around us is people calling out for peace, for remembrance, and really wishing to recall the "how." How to set aside thought forms that battle in the angry mind? How to recognize the beauty of human beings in process?

In this moment the caretaker mind of woman needs to hold forth the idea of abundance, to be joyous, to recognize the qualities of life-and to know that we can shape the world around us with our thoughts and feelings. Accepting the healing power of affirmation and action, speaking of the best, seeing ourselves in process and acknowledging the wisdom, the beauty, and the blessing of life in this time. Then to sense the interplay, the resonance of our being with all the world around us. That is the dream of this land, the dream of the child's heart; that is to renew the Sacred Hoop. In finding peace and recognizing the light in yourself, we say there's a hearth in your heart where the Creator has given you something very sacred, a special gift, a special duty, an understanding. And now is the time for us to clean out those hearths, to let that inner light glow. Listen to the breath and know it is also the mountain's breath. Mother Mountain has many meridians of energyjust as the human body does. You can feel the mountains in your cheeks, just by breathing. Your consciousness is not just in your body. lt is in everything. Everything is related. The mountain, too, is your body, so all the better to treat it with respect.

As long as you are walking upon the Earth you are like a child in the womb, being fed by this Earth. And respect for the Earth and for one another is being called for right now. We each have a duty to the Earth and to each other. Each race, each nation, has its different purpose in maintaining the whole. The wisdom of all our ancestors, wherever they came from, basically points to one truth: everything is in relation to you. Native Americans say, "all my relations," acknowledging that connection to everything that is alive. All being is an aspect of yourself. So to listen to the elements of nature is to listen to the voice of yourself: to look at the fire and see what it has to show you; to listen to the wind and understand that it, too, is your mind. These are your relatives: the fire, the water, the wind, the Earth, all of the creatures that you meet upon this planet and within it. We see some places that are not as sparkling as they can be and that is because people are being untrue to themselves, to one another, to the planet. People are not keeping tradition in their hearts; they are digging too far and using without consideration of returning. In this time it is either yes or no. You are either in harmony with the planet, with that part of truth in yourself, or you are not. The first step is to understand your own consciousness. Can we maintain spiritual dignity in an environment that denies more and more the grace of our inner beauty? We must. It is coming to that. Earth is asking. Our very inner nature is saying that to us now. Let us all speak the best of one another and perceive the best in everything.

It is a strenuous discipline in these times to practice this, courageously to speak what is correct and also to accept the softness of one's self; to realize that everything is Mother and Father. There is no form without the gift of the Mother and the Father. From Father Sky comes your consciousness and Mother Earth is your very bones. To sense the balance of the Mother/Father, Father/Mother within one's own being, one's own nature, is a way to renew the Earth, to renew our hearts, to renew the vision. To see one's purpose is a very important moment in the vision. We can choose, we can weave. We hold the form, we dance it, and the moment comes when it is recalled in each of us. We are human beings; we can live in harmony and dignity. We can make peace. We can empower ourselves to be peaceful, to know that what manifests through our hands, our hearts, and our actions is a reflection of our thinking and our relationship. In this time of illusion many people feel they're not good enough or that somebody else is in control, so they hold back. People disavow their place in the circle of life when they think in that mind. So generosity is something that we first begin to look at in our own thought. When we give we must give with consideration, so that always there is that cycle of reciprocity. To come again to realize the circle of life and the wheel of cause and effect, to plant good seeds, it is important to affirm, "I have something to give, I am receiving, even this gift of the human body and I am thankful." In this way one's highest ideals and clarity of mind can manifest. This accomplishes the goal of realizing the great truth: having good relationship with everything around one, for the benefit of all. In this industrial age, which has been described as paternalistic, we see how by moving away from the circle and working more in components, there is a loss of continuity and a forgetfulness of how what one does affects the Earth. So the big company that takes things out of the Earth and poisons the ground and the water and the atmosphere does so without even considering the effect on themselves. How do we turn the mind to realize that our actions have an effect, that things we do in this moment have an impact upon all of humanity now and unto seven generations down the road? It is in the reawakening of caretaker mind that we recognize our responsibility to right relationship and to nurture that which is good. It is the natural capacity of woman in her wombness to bring forth the good, to generate clear ideas; yet we are all caretakers and can come to see everyone we meet as a relative and ourselves as part of the great family called humanity. Seeing all in relationship, in the circle, is a part of the planetary healing. So it is very important that among ourselves we practice great generosity. This generosity carries over into respect for one another. Native people have what is called the give-away. Very often people are so happy they have a party and give away everything. Then they find themselves renewed, emptied of attachment. This concept of the give-away comes from courageously affirming one's ability to act for what is good for other people and oneself, knowing that each day will be abundant because one is not grasping. The give-away is an outward expression of an understanding that all things are related in the circle of life. How to hold the form that we are planetary beings, universal beings, and able to live in harmony? How to hold the form that we are abundant beings, capable of creating all that is needed for the people? Within our hearts and within our minds, within the imagination's light, we begin to see the way of resolution. This is known as visualization, where you see the accomplished goal of a world of enlightened action and good relationship. We must consider how our present actions will affect the world unto seven generations. This comes through stilling one's own mind and putting aside personal expectations and considering the balance of the Earth. This generates the mind of generosity.

Seeing the factions in one's own mind and community come to clarity is a first step to planetary enlightenment. It is to make peace with ourselves and all those we know; to feel confident that we are on the path of exploration, energetically seeking that full enlightenment. To know that anger, pain, shame, blame are only thought forms. We can end the formation of those thought forms by letting go of attachment to the idea of conflict. Can I make peace with my relatives? It is a great gift. How far will I go? Is there anything to lose? Nothing to lose. It is an awareness of the power of mind, an understanding of the process of unfolding and ultimately a freedom from the suffering of doubt. Doubt gives rise to fear and the idea that there is something to aggressively protect. Forgiveness is the balm, the soothing gel, so that one recognizes wisdom and the capacity to love, the compassion that turns aside fear and anger, the compassion that recognizes beauty and holds the form of planetary enlightenment. The vision is the clear intention. It is a generosity of heart, the mothering heart, the caretaker heart, that holds the vision. In terms of practical envisioning and manifesting the ideals, one considers three principles. The first principle is the clear intention that something may manifest; the understanding of its relationship to your life's purpose and to those around you and its repercussions. The second principle is generosity of heart; the compassion of the heart to affirm it to be so. The third principle is the ability, the mind to make it manifest. So we visualize the goal being accomplished in clear light, in right relationship. We affirm daily in our mind and in our spiritual practice that it will happen. And we work to manifest it. Say you want to see a piece of land in your area put in trust because it is sacred ground. How do you bring it about? The process works on many levels, and there are three basic steps: visualization, affirmation, and manifestation. First envision the land, the ideal situation and se,e your relationship to it. Is this action good for all the people? Understand its relationship to all things, to future generations, and know that it may return to you in the stream. Look and see if there are any thought forms or obscurations in your own nature or in the situation that may impede actualization of the ideal. If there are, then correct them through visualization and affirmation. Second, affirm and call forth the people through the certainty of your heart. Through visualization, affirmation, and chanting set up a magnet so that others of like energy will come and offer their resources. The third component is the manifestation, actively to manifest the goal. Carefully choose the team; attune with one another before you meet and during your meetings so you have unity of mind. Success comes from holding the ideal very clearly in your minds and making certain that the ideal is beneficial for the people unto seven generations.

The idea is in the minds of the people rather than something imposed upon the people. To sit back and think it will happen because you visualize is not enough. You consciously look for the right connections, consciously weed the garden of the mind, consciously gather the funds to acquire the place. Community building, relationship, is very active. The world of enlightened action and good relationship begins through the thoughts, words, and actions of today. People's methods, goals, or ideals may be different, but basically there is one truth in the community of human beings: we are all human beings, we are all relatives. There are many ways in which we can keep clear the stream of mind to bring forth enlightened community. First step, speak words in a building way, a constructive way; rather than pointing to the defects, point to the strengths. When recognizing defects in one's own nature or perception, make them correct through affirmation. As one is looking through the compassionate generosity of the heart, begin to notice the "empty bowl," the mind getting still. Set aside attachment to what "I said," "she said," and "they said" and understand what we are all doing together. Work by making agreement and evaluating what is possible. Set priorities. lt is most important not to let actions become "charged" and held onto. Blaming doesn't accomplish; establishing a strong pattern does.

Many people abdicate self-empowerment by withdrawing their energies, rather than by making a change either in themselves or in the situation. Also consider that people are like musical notes and need to have a harmonious complement. Knowing how to establish the team is important. Understand the basic character of those you're working with and have no expectations beyond. Clarify your own heart and know that when working together you're doing the best for all the people. Affirm that you can do it and acknowledge the positive qualities in yourself and in the work team. Do certain prayer rituals and meditations together to keep your hearts and minds clear. At Sunray when we prepare to meet we attune through the heart center, the center of compassion. There is a simple way to bring about enlightened action: knowing that whatever we're doing, we're doing it for one another, for ourselves, rather than "I do this for 'them'." Attuning to one another, working as a team, knowing that in the circle each person has a unique and necessary function, letting go of wanting one's ego stroked, this is generosity of mind. Refinement, change, is a process of life. It's how we respond to the change that is significant. See change as a process, without grasping the pain of "right or wrong," and see "it seems to be unfolding in this way." How not to grasp the feeling of pain? Look at the feeling. Where did it come from? Where did it begin? It is a matter of knowing that people do go through suffering but we can also transform the suffering into a real understanding about life. What does one do in a moment of despair? Practice, do meditation, make a ritual of clarifying the mind. "Here, I offer my attachment, my suffering, to the elements. Take them away. I inhale peace and harmony and radiate it out." The only way I know to see life as a process unfolding without becoming attached is to have clear practice, and when I say practice I mean regular meditation, reflection time. Too often people think that meditation and contemplation are separate from action.

Meditation has several phases. It has an active moment of sitting down, visualizing, chanting, whatever means the person has; then stillness of mind; then action, going out and doing something. lt may be doing what you saw in the stillness. It may be what you saw upon the screen of your mind before the stillness. The action is as much a meditation as are the sitting and the contemplation. Action is what manifests that which you perceive in the meditation. In this time there needs to be a change in action to protect the Earth. The human mind affects the very elements themselves. The thought and action of the people has become imbalanced; elements out of balance are chaotic and chaos affects planetary mind. Through good relationship and through developing generosity of heart and action individuals clarify their minds, and this resonates throughout the planet. Native peoples see that Earth is a living being, very much affected by people's thinking and actions.

The ancient Native prophecies foretell for this time much change and breaking of earth forms, the thundering of ignorance and the lightning force of inspiration moving forth. They also speak of the possible negative effects of people's attachment to thought forms of conflict and dominion. Prophecies are the possibilities that may manifest based on the actions of a given moment. And in the moment each one has a choice. So the prophecies speak of these times as trying times, of many streams meeting-and the possibility of the Hoop being rebuilt. And ultimately the Hoop will be rebuilt. I see a great turn in the spiral. The mind is very powerful and the voice is very strong. I see a world of beauty and right relationship unfolding. I see that nations will come to recognize the foolishness of nuclear armament and make changes in their actions, and that the means will come to defuse the poisonous weapons that have been made. And most important, the means will come to defuse the angry thinking that leads people to build weapons. The means are positive visualization, affirmation, and community building. Visualize yourself as a great mother feeling all the beings upon this planet, sending forth loving thoughts of peace and harmony and certainty that the crops will be good and all will be fed. Imagine yourself a great lake sending forth endless ripples of compassion and care. Let us all recall the sacred wisdom of all our relations and let that light move brightly in our hearts. Let our words be words of wisdom and creative energy, building stairways to our remembrance of the clan of humanity. In this way Mother Earth and Father Sky meet in our hearts and we know our wholeness. In this way the Sacred Hoop is renewed.

The Practical Power of Shamanism

by Sulana Stone

Shamanism is a very practical spirituality. A modern day shaman could live next door to you and the only clues you might have are that they get along well with people and animals and have a green thumb with plants. Also, shamans have a knack for putting people at ease and for saying and doing the right thing at the right time.

In his book, Urban Shaman, Serge Kahili King defines a shaman as "a healer of relationships, between mind and body, between people, between people and circumstances, between humans and Nature and between matter and spirit." If you have a taste of divine ecstasy, shamanism can teach you how to ground it, how to bring it into your everyday life through using your natural gifts and talents.

Shamanism can support you in translating that experience, that creative energy, into physical form so it can benefit you and everyone around you. The essence of shamanism is not an esoteric, mysterious, ritualistic tradition which can only be practiced by native peoples in a tribal environment. This ancient spiritual perspective on life is a down-to-earth, pragmatic, realistic way of living that anyone can use anywhere, anytime, including in our modern world. Currently across the planet, the sacred knowledge of the shaman is being translated into everyday street language in order to create more healthy, harmonious and enriching lives for people.

The spirit of shamanism is more of an open, flexible attitude and approach to living than a rigid set of rules, formulas and techniques. By applying the basic principles of shamanism, people open themselves to new possibilities and options for dealing with modern daily challenges. From Alaska to the Andes, from Tibet to Tanzania, shamanism is a worldwide phenomenon. Virtually every religion has its roots in shamanism, although shamanism is not a religion. It’s a perspective—a way of seeing all things as sacred. Shamanism does not preclude any religion. It simply says that anyone can have a direct experience of the divine without an intermediary. By honoring the sacred essence of everyone and everything, one’s whole life can truly become a spiritual adventure.

OMENS AND SIGNS

The shaman relates to every form of life as being alive, filled with energy and always communicating something to us. The key is in learning how to receive the communication. "Omens are a way Spirit communicates with us in the physical world," states shaman Ken Eagle Feather in Traveling with Power. "You can decipher omens from virtually anything, but pay special attention to unusual occurrences, whether it’s the strange behavior of birds, or conversations in which someone says something that catches your attention in a special way, or when a book falls off a shelf in front of you. You might find that messages on billboards change right in front of you, so that while others are reading an ordinary advertisement, you end up reading a message from Spirit. Be careful about being too strict in your interpretations, though. Remember, you are looking for guidance, not assurance. An omen might be the same for several people, or it might mean several different things. It’s up to you to create your personal omen dictionary. This open-ended response is called nonpatterning, and it provides the space for Spirit to communicate with you." Using personal experience as the means through which wisdom is gleaned (rather than through reading, thinking or analyzing), the shaman presents opportunities where people begin to sense a real, interactive connection with everything else that exists, even those things believed to be inanimate such as rocks, plastic, glass or metal.

EVERYTHING IS ENERGY

The basis of shamanistic creation, healing and transformation has always been the knowledge that the essential nature of everything is energy. Modern science, specifically quantum physics, has only recently concluded that every living thing is made of energy. The reason that walls and rocks appear solid is because they vibrate at a low, dense rate. We know that pictures travel invisibly through the air and arrive on our TV screens. Is it such a stretch to open to the possibility that everything has an invisible energy within it? And that communication can be transmitted through this energy? Shamans utilize the knowledge that everything is energy to create in their world by using their conscious attention to direct the flow of energy within all forms of life. Energy flows where attention goes. Indeed, scientists are now reporting that the beliefs and thoughts of the person conducting the experiments significantly affect the outcome of their experiments. Since we come to this planet to evolve our soul within the paradox of this world of polarity (light and dark, inside and outside, body and spirit), we must develop the skill to play consciously and creatively with duality. If we are truly perceptive, we can see how the energies of each opposing polarity are serving us. If we see how we are at effect of all these dualistic energies, then we can make a choice of what to keep and what to eliminate. This is an act of magic. True shamans are those who can influence energy, whether it is inside them or in the world outside them. If we have learned how energy moves and behaves, we have opened ourselves up to our true selves. This is what the paradoxes of our world teach us. Shamans know that humans are determiners of spirit, and the choices, decisions and priorities that we set fashion the reality of the world in which we live.

SEEING

When shamans use their ability to "see" the underlying energy dynamics of situations and relationships, they are able to "see" cause and effect connections and forces that are not visible when viewing the circumstances superficially, i.e., looking only at the outer form. Perceiving the energy dynamics of life events reveals new alternatives and possibilities not previously apparent. "The art of the (shaman) is to be able to guide, to be able to illuminate the path in such a way that the person hooks on to a greater experience—that of freedom," Eagle Feather shares. This allows people the freedom to move beyond limits of past perceptions into the realm of options, fresh creativity and natural magic. A shaman would "see," for example, that the anger of a supermarket clerk resulted from the clerk’s inability to express their feelings. The shaman could "see" how these emotions were adversely affecting not only the clerk, but also the people in line. Consequently, a shaman may choose to engage the angry clerk in a friendly, relaxing conversation in order to shift the situation into flow and harmony. Shamans also "see" the cause and effect between what they allow into their energy systems and make practical choices to manage their energy levels. The shaman takes in everything to gain energy and maximize personal power—from sunlight and sound to conversations and food. By consciously selecting everything she ingests, the shaman maximizes health, creativity, enjoyment and life span. The shaman’s intake strategy is to get as much energy as possible from every life encounter with the least amount of energy expended. A person should always have more, not less, energy after every life interaction. The shaman applies this approach to all forms of nourishment from the external environment—mental conversations, social relationships, emotional interactions, spiritual meditations and physical food. This simple play on the word ENERGY expresses how the shaman receives optimum energy from food.
The Practical Power of Shamanism (pt.2)

by Sulana Stone

EATING FOR CREATIVE POWER

            E asily-digestible foods
            N ecessary fuel only
            E mpty before bed
            R eal hunger
            G nash
            Y ummy in your tummy

Through self-observation, a shaman determines how to manage what food they eat and how they eat in order to increase their energy, clarity and creative powers. Shamans notice cause and effect of what they ingest then adjust their actions to gain the most energy E—Easily-digestible foods—Eat those foods that most easily digest, assimilate and integrate. N—Necessary fuel only—Eat only what is absolutely needed to function optimally. No excess. E— Empty before bed—Go to sleep with an empty stomach so your body and soul have the opportunity to rest, heal, balance and recharge. R— Real hunger—Recognize when you feel real, intuitive need to eat. Look to nature, music or other energy replenishing sources of nourishment to fill that "empty" feeling. G Gnash—Chew everything well before letting it go inside your body. Y Yummy in your tummy—Eat only to those foods that are truly exciting to you!

The shamans’ way of eating food to gain power can be applied to every life exchange. Participating in those interactions that nourish you also expands your energy E—Easily-digestible exchanges—Take in those interactions, conversations, projects that most easily digest, assimilate and integrate. N—Necessary fuel only—Take in only those interactions, conversations, projects that are absolutely needed to function optimally. No excess. Touch the world lightly. E—Empty before bed—Go to sleep with an empty mind and a peaceful heart, so your body and soul have the opportunity to rest, heal, balance and recharge. R—Real hunger—Recognize when you need an energy boost. Look to nature, music or other energy replenishing sources of nourishment to fill that "empty" feeling. G—Gnash—Contemplate everything well before letting it go inside your world. Y— Yummy to your life—Be accessible, available only to those people, places and things that are truly exciting to you!

POWER

We have many powers within us that we can learn to use for our own benefit and for the benefit of others. From the shamanistic point of view, all power comes from within. Power comes from authorship (authority). Shamans become the authors of the creations in their world by freeing themselves of programmed and conditioned perceptions. In moving beyond customs, manners, rules and techniques, the shaman embraces the practicality of "What works, works." The shaman has little concern for how something works, only that it produces the results one intends. Shamans are the most flexible, utilitarian and efficient authors of their world. They take the shortest, quickest route to their goals, even if the path tramples on their own concepts or beliefs. One way people can experience this power is to look for proof in their own lives. Take love, for example. One way to increase the presence and power of love in a person’s life is to decrease the presence and power of judgment. Shamans notice that their attention cannot be in both places at the same time, and, therefore choose where they want to spend their energy. To spend energy judging that they harmed someone or that another person caused them harm would be a misdirection and waste of energy for a shaman. Eagle Feather explains more about the true nature of power, "Anyone looking for power over others or control over material processes is probably going to be disappointed by the teaching, which essentially define power as the ability to free oneself from one’s own perceptions and habitual patterns. The message seems to be that once you align with the energy, you’re no longer the master. Spirit is."

EXERCISE FOR EXPLORING
THE POWER OF LOVE

For at least one full minute, sit quietly, close your eyes, and compliment yourself unceasingly for any good quality, characteristic or behavior you can think of. It’s okay to repeat yourself if you can’t think of a lot to say. With practice it gets easier. If negative responses or self-criticisms arise spontaneously, don’t give them importance; just keep on complimenting. When you’ve finished, be aware of your feelings and sensations. Do you feel better or worse? Do you have more energy or less?

Next, for at least one full minute, sit with your eyes open and compliment any good quality, characteristic or behavior you can be aware of in your immediate environment. Again, don’t pay attention to criticisms. What have you learned about focus, choice and energy levels?

HEALING

A shaman is a bridge between this world and the invisible world of the spirit. A shaman is very anchored, very present in this world. Being so centered and grounded, a shaman can assist a person to travel into dimensions and see things from a much bigger perspective. Then people can heal because there is more room for them to expand and open to fresh new realities. This expanded awareness from the shaman creates a strong foundation for people to awaken to their own healing power within. The goal of the shaman is always to support the awakening of the soul. The shaman acts as an anchor so the person can reach their own depth and move through their own cellular transformation. Shaman Frederick Wolf concurs. "People really know how to heal themselves. It’s an illusion to think that someone is going to come and heal them. But what will happen is, when they feel the support and safety that the shaman can hold for them, they will have faith enough to go into that place inside of them that knows how to heal. It’s not some magical thing that happens. It’s very natural."

WAY OF LIVING

Shamanism is a way of living on the altar of Mother Earth. It’s a way to live in balance on the earth, a way of finding not only peace with yourself personally, but peace with nature and your environment. Shamanism is bringing the two worlds together your inner world—your heart—with your outer world. It’s important to be balanced, to be grounded in both worlds. We should be able to go anywhere and be at home, whether it’s in a cave or a big city. Shamanism is a pathway that can help us to realize the sacredness and magic within and all around us. Birds that soar into the heavens, trees whose roots reach deep into the earth, everything in nature reflects an aspect of our souls. As the poet Rumi said, "You will see stars and moons mirrored in your being." Shamanism is letting go of our limited ideas and concepts of who we are. As we abandon our illusions of separateness, we open to the beauty and simplicity of our true nature—our connectedness with all of life.

THE POWER AND FREEDOM
OF COMPLETION

Would you enjoy having an easy way to increase your energy and ability to focus and giving yourself a way to glide through daily activities without getting overloaded with "what you haven’t done yet?" By simply being aware of when we have come to completion of each activity, we gain a significant source of energy and give ourselves the freedom to move on.

With our attention fully available for our next action, we can make better decisions and begin the next action more easily and intuitively. And, how do we have completion with activities that "aren’t finished yet?" It’s simple. You ask yourself one question, "What am I capable of completing right now?" You do everything you can do up to that point, with what resources, ideas and information you have. Then you make a determination that you’re complete at that point. Declare yourself complete for the moment. That declaration of completion liberates the attention you have on that project or issue. Then you have more free energy to apply to the next moment or project.

A practical example would be discovering that you’ve run out of steam in the middle of cleaning a closet. You can’t decide if you should throw away an old shirt or what to do with a box of books you find in the closet. You’re tired. Grumpy. At this point, a shaman recognizes that he needs to regenerate his energy in order to make good decisions and asks, "What am I capable of completing right now?" The best course of action might be to label articles "decide later about these items" then declare yourself complete for the moment. Then take action to replenish your energy. Go for a walk. Play some music. When you have regained your clarity, you are in a position to decide if this is the time for you to continue your closet Feng Shui or do something else.

As a holistic way of living life, shamanism takes the most practical, compassionate path to reach any goal.

Človeške oči zmorejo opravljati dve funkciji, eno je videti energijo, kako se preprosto pretaka po vesolju, druga pa, gledati stvari tega sveta.
Nobena od teh dveh funkcij ni boljša od druge, pa vendar je uporabljati oči samo za gledanje sramotna in nepotrebna izguba.

Magic power of American Indians
06/30/2004 14:57

There are many mysterious things in the history of wars between white people and Indians in America.
Many times Indian heroes marvelously stayed alive in dangerous situations, although there was no chance for them to survive.

1865. The battle on the Powder river. According to Indian chronicles, the chief of Cheienn tribe Roman Nose behave very strange, "During the battle he was slowly riding a horse in front of the line of the white people. The soldiers fired at him, but all the bullets missed. He was wearing a sacred headgear having magic power".

June 25, 1876. Indian of the Siu tribe Iron Hawk described the crushing defeat of 7th cavalry regiment, "We had very brave Cheienn. He was wearing a headgear from the feathers of the spotty eagle, spotty cloak from some animals skin and parti-colored belt. He rode his horse to the hill, we followed him at some distance. The soldiers were standing along the hill. They were holding their horses by the bridles. The Cheienn approached the soldiers very closely, and they were constantly firing at him. When the Cheienn came back to us, he untied his belt, and the bullets fell down from it. The sacred force protected this well-built warrior, and for this reason the soldier were unable to do harm to him".

Five months later, on November 25, 1876, the warriors of the Cheienn tribe led by chief Blunt Knife were attacked by 4th cavalry regiment of colonel Ronald McKensey and had to leave their camp. The Indians took cover in the canyon near the Powder river. For the whole day the soldiers fired at Indians, but with no success as the Indians were hiding behind the stones. Suddenly an old Indian came out on the open hill and started smoking a pipe. The American soldiers who had already lost hope to win, cheered up and started firing at the old Indian. No result. Soon another Indian joined the old man. The two men smoked their pipes to the end and then left. They were not even injured.

1890. The last battle of the steppe Indians near the Wounded Knee river. The saint prophet of  the Siu tribe Black Elk demonstrated his magic power during that battle. Black Elk was leading a group of Indians. He had no gun, but was holding the sacred bow in front of them. The soldiers were shooting at Black Elk and his companions without stop, but no Indian was wounded. There are chronicles that the tribe had special warriors. "The Siu called those having magic power "Vacan" - mysterious. Occasionally they demonstrated their tribesmen their power. After paining themselves in a special way and having only loin-cloth on and sacred whistles on their chests, Vacans formed a line and moved to the people shooting at them. Arrows bent and broke, bullets became flat and fell on the ground, and Vacans were not injured at all. Nevertheless, even such invulnerable Siu had to bow down after that battle.

Finally, blind force and white people" weapons won, but the invulnerability of Indian warriors still seems remarkable to many historians. There are so many chronicles on wonders Indian warriors and shamans were producing that they can hardly be considered as lies.
