White Spirit Animal's Message

What does it mean if one has a vision visit from a White Spirit Animal?  This question lead me to finding an amazing article published in Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazine,  Spring 2018 edition, by J. Zohara Meyerhoff Hieronimus, D.H.L.  She is an award-winning radio broadcaster, author, animal activist, and  well known telepath that communicates with animals.  She writes about having a waking day vision in 2013, when numerous White Spirit Animals arrived as a large group before her to ask that she tell their story.  Her book, White Spirit Animals Prophets of Change, is that story.

White Spirit Animal's Message

During four years of communicating with these White Spirit Animals using “shamanic dreaming”, each animal shared with the author what they thought important.  Here are examples;  1. Lion maintains that closing the ozone hole and closing the hole in our hearts keeps us from seeing the love we are connected to, as both are  essential. 2.  Bear urges us to heal with what grows from the earth, to bear children, to bear witness and to prepare for long periods of self-sufficiency.  3.  Elephant teaches us about compassionate action and resolution without violence.  4.  Wolf, guardian of the threshold,  protects the dead as well as the newborn, helping us to see life and death as a continuum.  5. Buffalo invigorates the soil and spirit. Sacred to the Lakota, Buffalo teaches prayer and peace.

White Spirit Animal's Message

How intriguing that the examples discussed above (Bear, Wolf, Elephant, Buffalo, Lion) and their species are all matriarchal societies.  Does this mean as a women, we may be called on?  White Spirit Animals implore us to “Improve life around us.”  They are attempting to awaken in us a great love and reverence for the EARTH we share with them, thus bringing us into telepathic rapport.  If you are visited by a Sacred White Spirit Animal (species from this planet or from other worlds), ask what is their story and how can you help!

White Spirit Animal's Message

Ancient Walker 2--3

I release my parents from the feeling that they have already failed me.

I release my children from the need to bring pride to me;

that they may write their own ways according to their hearts,

that whisper all the time in their ears.

I release my partner from the obligation to complete myself.

I do not lack anything,

I learn with all beings all the time.

butterfly 1

I thank my grandparents and forefathers who have gathered

so that I can breathe life today.

I release them from past failures and unfulfilled desires,

aware that they have done their best to resolve their situations

within the consciousness they had at that moment.

butterfly 3

I honor you, I love you and I recognize you as innocent.

I am transparent before your eyes,

so they know that I do not hide or owe anything

other than being true to myself and to my very existence,

that walking with the wisdom of the heart,

I am aware that I fulfill my life project,

free from invisible and visible family loyalties that might disturb

my Peace and Happiness,  which are my only responsibilities.

butterfly 5

I renounce the role of savior,

of being one who unites or fulfills the expectations of others.

 Learning through, and only through, LOVE, I bless my essence,

my way of expressing,

even though somebody may not understand me.

butterfly 7

I understand myself, because I alone have lived and experienced my history;

because I know myself, I know who I am, what I feel, what I do and why I do it.

I respect and approve myself.

I honor the Divinity in me and in you.

We are free.

(This ancient blessing was created in the Nahuatl language, spoken in Mexico)

Empowered Woman

March 1st, 2018 | Posted by Velda in POETRY FOR WOMEN | RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Empowered WomanThe Empowered Woman, she moves through the world
with a sense of confidence and grace.
Her once reckless spirit now tempered by wisdom.
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation
and the life she leads is of her own creation.

She now understands what it means to live and let live.
How much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has a strong, yet generous heart
and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.
Like the mythical Phoenix,
she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence,
unfettered by the things that once posed such resistance.

Empowered Woman Her senses now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees;
beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly.
She feels the softness of her hands
and muses at the strength that they possess.
Her needs and desires she has learned to express.
She has tasted the bitter and savored the sweet fruits of life,
overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife. 

And the one thing she never understood,
she now knows to be true,
it all begins and ends with you.

Native American Code Of Ethics

Ronit Baras shared the following in her Family Matters Blog:  “My work in personal development is in the service of all codes of ethics. I believe that regardless of which one we follow, if each and every one of us strives to live by them, to the best of our ability, we will create a better world.  Judaism is about 5,000 years old, Buddhism is about 2,500 years old, Christianity is about 2,000 years old, and Islam is about 1,500 years old. Meanwhile, the Native American Code of Ethics goes back 11,000 years. Fortunately, if you go deep into each of these belief systems, you will find them very similar”.Native American Code Of Ethics

Can you see the similarities between the North American Code of Ethics and your own beliefs?

  • Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.
  • Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy, and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.
  • Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.
  • Treat the guests in your home with much consideration. Serve them the best food, give them the best bed and treat them with respect and honor.
  • Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.
  • Respect all things that are placed upon this earth – whether it be people or plant.
  • Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.
  • Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you.
  • All persons make mistakes and all mistakes can be forgiven.
  • Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

  • Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. They are part of your worldly family.Native American Code of Ethics
  • Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.
  • Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.
  • Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the test of ones will within this universe.
  • Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual self, Emotional self, and Physical self – all need to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out the body to strengthen the mind. Grow rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.
  • Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.
  • Respect the privacy and personal space of others. Do not touch the personal property of others – especially sacred and religious objects. This is forbidden.
  • Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.
  • Respect others’ religious beliefs. Do not force your belief on others.
  • Share your good fortune with others.

Nature Helps Us Unplug

I decided to share my connection to the overwhelming healing power and beauty of the sky, by integrating my personal sky photos with this ‘Thou Shalt Not Worry’  poem.  Hopefully it is a reminder that Nature can help us to unplug from daily challenges, especially during the holiday season.

Thou shalt not worry,

 for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.

Thou shalt not be fearful,

for most of the things we fear never come to pass.

Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them,

for no one yet has succeeded in accomplishing this.

Nature Helps Us Unplug

Thou shalt face each problem as it comes,

for you can handle only one at a time anyway.

Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you,

for they make very poor bedfellows.

Thou shalt not borrow other people’s problems,

they can take better care of them than you can.

Natrure Helps Us Unplug

Thou shalt be a good listener,

for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own,

it’s very hard to learn something new when you’re talking.

Thou shalt not become bogged down by frustration,

for ninety percent of it is rooted in self-pity,

and it will only interfere with positive action.

Nature Helps Us Unplug

Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday,

for good or ill it is gone,

concentrate on what is happening in your life today.

Thou shalt count thy blessings,

never overlooking the small ones,

for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.

~ Elodie Armstrong

What The World Needs Now

“What the World Needs Now Is Love” was a 1965 popular song with lyrics by Hal David and music composed by Burt Bacharach. It was first recorded  by Jackie DeShannon, and released on April 15, 1965. This song was originally offered to Dionne Warwick, who turned it down at the time.  It has been recorded by the Supremes in 1968, Dionne Warwick in 1996, Ron Keating in 2011, and Kree Harrison in 2013.  On June 15, 2016, the song was recorded by Broadway for Orlando with all proceeds going to the victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting.  Mighty Mighty Bosstones announced their release of this powerful song on December 2016.  These lyrics are appropriate for the gratitude month of November.  Join me in sharing your love to help OUR WORLD NOW!

What The World Needs Now

What the world needs now
Is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now
Is love, sweet love
No, not just for some, but for everyone

Look, we don’t need another mountain
There are oceans and rivers
Enough to cross, enough to last
Until the end of time

Lord we don’t need another meadow
There are corn fields and wheat fields enough to grow
There are sun beams and moon beams enough to shine
This I know, if you want to know

What the world needs now
Is love, sweet love
It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of
What the world needs now
Is love, sweet love
No, not just for some, just for everyone

Nature Pampers Our Spirit

September 1st, 2017 | Posted by Velda in RETIRED FEATURE POSTS

Nature Pampers Our Spirit

If you can learn to quiet your mind, it helps recharge your emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. People who have been suffering from stress, sickness, or a trauma can spend quiet contemplative time in gardens, community parks, or mountains to heal.

Nature is always lovely, invincible, glad,
whatever is done and suffered by her creatures.
All scars she heals,
whether in rocks or water or sky or hearts.

~John Muir

Nature Pampers Our Spirit

Viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, or stress and increases pleasant feelings.  Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones.

 Nature is the one place where miracles
not only happen,
but they happen all the time.

~Thomas Wolfe

Nature Pampers Our Spirit

Being in nature also bestows a sense of connectedness, meaning, and purpose. There is a sense of chaotic order in the way nature works; the plants and animals are interconnected in a series of complex relationships. Everything coexists in nature without the necessity of outside intervention.

Look deep, deep into nature, and then
You will understand everything better.

~Albert Einstein

Nature Pampers Our Spirit

Being in nature helps to clear one’s head of life’s demands and disruptive thoughts. This clarity of thought may lead to finding answers to life’s questions and discovering insights to life’s problems.

You never conquer a mountain.
Mountains can’t be conquered;
you conquer yourself
your hopes, your fears.

~Jim Whitaker

August Summer Days

Who made the world?

Who made the swan, and the black bear?

Who made the grasshopper?

This grasshopper, I mean– the one who has flung herself out of the grass,

the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,

who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down–

who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.

Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.

Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.

August Summer Days

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.

I do know how to pay attention,

how to fall down into the grass,

how to kneel in the grass,

how to be idle and blessed,

how to stroll through the fields,

which is what I have been doing all day.

August Summer Days

Tell me, what else should I have done?

Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

With your one wild and precious life?”

Mary OliverThe Summer Day

LET THERE BE MANY WINDOWS IN YOUR SOUL

~ Ralph Waldo Trine

American Philosopher 1866-1958

Windows In Oue Soul

Let there be many windows in our soul,

That all the glory of the Universe may beautify it.

Not the narrow pane of one poor creed can catch the radiant rays

That shine from countless sources.

Tear away the blinds of superstition;

Let the light pour through fair windows,

Broad as truth itself,  and high as heaven.

Windows In Our Soul

Tune your ear to all the worldless music of the stars

And to the voice of nature,

And your heart shall turn to truth

and  goodness as the plant

to the sun.

 Windows In Our Soul

A thousand unseen hands reach down

 To help you to their peace-crowned heights,

And all the forces of the firmament

Shall fortify your strength.

Be not afraid to thrust aside half truths

And grasp the whole.

Windows In Our Soul

Send Healing Love to the Soul through open Eyes, Ears, Heart,  and Hands!

Auric Crystal Healing

Your Aura is the energetic force that surrounds your entire being. The purpose of the aura is to act as a protective screen to block out and repel the negative energies, thoughts, and feelings of others, and also to prevent leakage of your own energy. However, holes, known as auric tears, can form within the aura, weakening it, and thus making it susceptible to harm by invading outside energies. These tears have many causes, including stress, trauma, depression, abuse, and physical injuries or illnesses to name just a few.

The following stones can be used for auric health and protection:

Auric Crystal HealingAmber aligns the subtle bodies with the physical body. Releases negative energy.

Amethyst heals holes in the aura, cleanses it, draws in divine energy to protect the aura.

Apache Tear protects the aura and prevents it from absorbing negative energies from any source, but especially the negativity of other people.

Bloodstone cleanses the aura.

Carnelian repairs the aura.

Citrine cleanses and aligns the aura.

Jet protects against other’s negative thoughts.

Magnetite strengthens the aura.

Quartz cleanses, protects, and strengthens the aura. Seals auric tears.

Smoky Quartz  grounds energy and removes negative energy from the aura.

Green Tourmaline heals auric tears.

Methods used to protect your Aura:

1.  Slowly pass your chosen stone or crystal over the aura (the space around the entire body).  An auric tear will feel cold and empty. The stone may start to feel differently, such as becoming cold or vibrating slightly. Once you’ve located a hole or tear, hold the stone over the area for several moments.

2.  Hold your chosen stone or crystal over each chakra starting with the Root Chakra for a few moments. Doing so periodically will help to keep your chakras strong and healthy, which in turn will help to keep your aura healthy as well. If damage is sensed over a chakra (the same as with the aura), move the stone in a counter-clockwise motion over the chakra. This will release any negative energy that may be lingering there. Then move the stone in a clockwise pattern over the chakra. This will heal the chakra and seal it.

3.  The easiest way to use stones for protection of any kind (physical, emotional, auric, etc.) is to carry your chosen protection stone in a pocket, or a stone talisman may be carried for protection, or your favorite aura protection stone jewelry can be worn.
