As there can be no healing without forgiveness, some time soon we’ll all gather, as we sometimes do for public ceremony, to acknowledge past wounds brought about by our ancestors here on America’s soil (Turtle Island) – genocide that was labeled ‘Manifest Destiny.’ (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1860_Wiyot_Massacre –Mitch)
The thought of ‘originies’ tribes takes us back and connects us to another time and space, a time when we trusted our intuition and knew how to be stewards of the earth. It was a time when we felt a deeper connection to everything, With so much information coming in all of the time, our connection can be veiled. I think we love the originies people because we can feel that they are still in touch with something bigger than themselves.
The word originies/indigenous conjures up images of a time long ago, ancient civilizations, different cultures and traditions we could never understand. It also makes us think of jungles and plant medicine, unfamiliar territory to most. But this territory is where people are finding there way back to themselves. Those who are noticing that something is missing from their lives are seeking ways to get back in touch with their soul’s purpose. These tribes of people are coming together everywhere – all religions, all walks of life are joining together to make a difference in the world – saying enough is enough – and because of this, things are changing.
We can no longer stand by and allow the lies to fill our day. I believe it is time to take control of our destiny. If things are not working, fix them. One way to do this is to begin to clear your life of all that no longer serves you. If it makes you feel bad or negative, it is a lie.If it makes you feel good and is positive, it is the truth. “The truth will set you free,” and freedom is what we’re all seeking. Speak your truth no matter what.
Your guidance system is always within. When we are open and dial in to our heart and the planet, magical things can, and do happen.
