Nurturing Ourselves and the World.

 

At the beginning of the year, I set out my intention to just BE me, relax, meditate and just enjoy the NOW of the moments which so quickly pass us by never to return.  This year is all about nurturing one’s self and learning that the only way to fix the outside world, is to first fix  your own world from the inside.

We are now six months into that year, to me it seems no time at all has passed. We are but a blink, in terms of Earth years as we measure them in the time we have created here. But within the scheme of things its but a nano second upon our eternal journeying through the cosmos as we learn what we need to learn within this realm of existence.

And I am working hard upon freeing myself from this Wheel, in which we are caught.

I am taking more time out to nurture, and explore new places that hold ancient memory, that have called me to visit for far too long.

I so appreciate all of you who visit and leave your thoughts here, I know I have not been as regular a visitor to your posts as I would have liked. But I try to get around as many of you as I can when my own time allows..

I came across this video which I wish to share, if you have the time to watch it. It spoke to my heart and I hope it speaks to yours..

Our intentions are what set us on the path, and they are what rebounds back to us as we manifest the future of both our personal experiences and that which we contribute in society to the world.

The World needs love, it needs nurturing.. So Nurture yourselves, Love Yourselves, for in doing so, you also Nurture the world..

Love and Blessings

Corridors of Power~ Use your own Minds!

The Post you will read below is one I posted Five years ago.  Nothing much has changed in the world in regards to pollution and the way in which we are treating each other. 

I can only do my own part in being aware of my own plastic footprint, growing much of our own vegetables and fruit and monitoring my recycling habits. 

More and more I am retreating into my own inner world as I create and manifest the world  I wish to live in as I leave this old programming within this Matrix

What brings me more and more  hope now are how  young minds are seeing just why they are a force to be reckoned with.  As we see how from the very young their awareness of our destruction of our planet is echoing further afield rattling their voices upon the doors of governments. 

When we Unite as ONE, we can see what can be achieved as we saw from the School Strikes for Climate, to the Students who protested new laws in Hong Kong fighting new Extradition laws to China. 

When we wake up to our internal power of Unity Consciousness, the power within, which has the power to change our reality, you can see why so much effort is being focused upon dumbing  us down.

We are so much more powerful than we are led to believe.

If you have a mind, use it to educate yourself to the realities of the World. 

Change is constant, 

It’s time we all Woke up, and Change begins first with changing ourselves.  

Much Love

There are many magical corridors.  There are many Powerful Pathways.

Beware those who would claim there is but one.

Quote: Mary Summer Rain

My Art in Watercolour and Ink a new addition to this post.

 

Another dip into my thoughts as I sit with my journal.

While I try to keep my blog a Sanctuary for inspiration love light and peace. I am far from living in the land of make believe. And know that there are many wrongs which need to be put to rights.

I try to live in my own positive bubble, because I know only too well how easy it is to fall into Pits of despair for the sufferings of the world.

Being empathetic often mean we become over sensitive to the horrors going on. And if I’m not careful, images can replay in my mind for days as my energy reaches out to those suffering souls, as I feel their pain. But I also know that if I do not detach and reign in these emotions they will serve me no good. For eventually they will end up devouring me.

Even so as I look into nature I see how birds squabble and fight for their territory. Each of us are not without our problems. We all have to find balance if we are to learn and live in harmony.

But neither can I be like the ostrich and bury my head in the sand either. Too many peoples lives are at steak.

Getting Angry about certain situations solves nothing. For Anger only feeds those who serve those same darker forces enabling them more control as they exercise their fear tactics to be used upon the masses.

We all need to be mindful of what energies we are putting out into the world. 

We do however need to Wake up to what the real world is doing. And as we rub the sleep from our eyes we need to open them and start and question. Let us stop being submissive in acceptance of what we are being told by those in power. Let us look at how corruption is being exposed by those who are the elite and seek out the real Truth amongst the constant lies spewed forth. Let’s utilise and use our greatest power, as we unify for peaceful solutions and open our eyes to who the enemies of humanity really are.

When I published some facts in previous years. I was often reluctant to press the publish button for the labels of conspiracy theories soon had their fingers pointing that I was some kind of nut.

I have always maintained. Never believe one word I say. But do your own research. 

You owe it to your self and your family in seeking out the true reality of how this world works. And once you do. You’re eyes are guaranteed to Pop! out of your head.

Its time to stop being blinkered and speak up against the injustices of the World its time if you have a vote to use it. And its time to understand we are all of us connected via the matrix of energy we send out.

So sending Anger only creates more to boil over. What goes around comes around.

But neither can we pretend everything in this world is ok.

As we watch scenarios play out which are bringing yet more deaths through those who play War Games with their citizens lives. Using children, teenagers either through murders or kidnappings, to escalate their causes is despicable.

We can no longer be complacent as we allow those in power to play with our World.. I speak not just about the warring of nations,

But I speak also about the war against our Earth.. Look up people at our  Skies Look into our oceans and look at what you are putting into your bodies. 

I tagged this within my Mind Body Spirit section.

I hope you will be Mindful.

And I hope you see we are all One Body with that of our Earth.

And lastly I hope your Spirit moves you to Wake up and engage in positive actions where ever you are in the world, to bring awareness and to help heal the Earth and her people’s where ever you can.

In Love and in Truth

Wake Up to Nature And To Ourselves

 

Wake up to Nature.

Wake up and savour the beauties that abound,

Wake up and honour all life that is around.

We take you for granted, even the air we breathe

Take time to look at the blossoms on the trees

~~

Look deep into a flower and see the wonders there

Take time to stop and listen to birds in the air..

Watch the glistening water, ripple over stones

Be thankful for the morning, these gifts and our homes

~~

We take Nature for granted, as she bestows these gifts for free

It’s up to us to look after her, for she’s there for you and me.

What if one day you awoke, and the air you breathed were black?

What happens if nature decides she is fighting back

~~

And no longer shall the bees pollinate the crops

And no longer will the rain give you those pure drops

Open your eyes, for we work hand in glove

Wake Up, and be thankful, For Nature needs our love

© Sue Dreamwalker 2010-2019

This poem I wrote was first posted in 2010. I know many around our world now are experiencing Mother Nature in her extremes, as she shows us she is not always gentle and giving, but she can be cruel and take, just as how we have been to her, taking of her gifts and not giving back..

The Native  Americans knew how to honour our Earth Mother and would only take that which they needed and always they gave a gift back to her. They spoke many times of these times of great changes in our Earth time line. We are in those times right now.

A poetic interlude as I ponder how to share further my inner most thoughts. 

Love to you all and thank you for your patience.

Native American Wisdom~ Three in One

A Watercolour-Native-American Chief

It never fails to amaze me how the Universe conspires to guide us and also sends her signs for us to follow, should we be alert enough to take notice of her messages. 

While I have hopped on my blog many times to answer comments over the last week,  I have also been trying to compose a post.. But due to some technical issues I had with my internet, and planned day trips out, the Universe thought it better for me to wait a while longer. So I am combining the post with some photo images from my Trip out and my garden visitors. 

So while I waited, not one but two of my Blogging friends asked if I would take up the three day quote’s challenge.. Now every so often I am up for a challenge.  

I didn’t have to scratch my head for long as to  what great quotes I could share, there are so many that inspire us. But then as it often the case when we open ourselves up to the ‘Signs’, As I opened up my cupboard door one morning, while I was looking on the top shelf for some art paper, a miniature book  dropped out at my feet. A sure Sign it needed to be read again. And wouldn’t you know it, this is a little book of quotes entitled Native American Wisdom, Miniature Edition, In the book are various quotes from Native American Indians from Mourning Dove, to Chief Seattle  the brilliant  photography is by Edward S Curtis .

The book I bought oh way back in the 90’s when my life then was full of all things Native American, for as my Spiritual connections were strengthening as my Spiritual awareness expanded, their presence became stronger in my day to day world. 

So I have to thank Wendi over at  Simply Chronically Ill.   for her kind nomination.

And to Paul over at Learning From Dogs for nominating me to take part in the three-day quote challenge.. However my Three Quotes will all be within this one-off post.  For they are all related.  So already I am altering the rules, but if you wish to take part the rules as such will be included at the end.. 

So I flipped open my little book and on page 30 and 31 I found two of the quotes perfect for some photos I also wish to share with you, so you see, the Universe does know what she is doing, all we have to do is go within its flow, and all things blend perfectly. 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Quote One. From Eagle Chief [Letakots-Lesa] More can be found here about this quote and Eagle Chief  ( Late 19th Century) Pawnee

“In the beginning of all things, wisdom and knowledge were with the animals, for Tirawa  , the One Above, did not speak directly to man. He sent certain animals to tell men that he showed himself through beasts, and that from them, and from the Stars and the Sun and the Moon should man learn……. All things tell of  Tirawa.”

One only has to look up to the sky and see the changes within it to see that ALL things change, and we too need to adapt and change. We humans often interfere with the animal kingdom forgetting their vital roles in their parts in keeping everything in perfect balance.. Only now man is beginning to see how his interference in nature and the environment is causing huge problems for all living things both on land and in the ocean, as our greed consumes even our own safety.  As we pollute everything we touch.. Even outer space is now littered with our debris. …We would do well to look to the Stars and Look to the Beasts.. and LEARN..

Blackbird feeding his fledglings either side of the post.

 Quote Two From Mourning Dove [Christine Quintasket] More can be found here about Mourning Dove and her contribution as an author.(1888-1936) Salish.

” ……… everything on the Earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a Mission. This is the Indian theory of existence “

How many of us feel we are on a Mission.? I know I certainly have felt strongly I was here for a reason, as I explore my own existence upon this planet. So too all things have purpose.. One can not exist without the other.. The very air with breathe is being created by the trees, what the trees breathe out, we breathe in and visa versa..

We have to look to nature not chemicals for cures, but more importantly, seek out that which is causing sickness. Is is not just the diseases which cause illness.. But the Dis-ease in which we live..  When we each of us learn to live in Balance, and not from a point of Lack, we may then begin to live in harmony with one another, when we learn to share that which we have.   

Now my last and final quote is from this book also, on Page 96, and if you should click the links you can find out so much more about the life of this lady and all others mentioned here. Each of them very wise, and I am sure many will agree, it’s time we started to embrace their wisdom once again. 

Quote Three.FromGertrude Simmons Bonnin [Zirkala- Sa] -meaning in Lakota: [Red Bird] (1876- 1938 ) Dakota Sioux. 

“…..  the voice  of  the Great Spirit is heard in the twittering of birds, the rippling of mighty waters, and the sweet breathing of flowers.  If this is Paganism, then at present, at least I am Pagan.”

(The above photos were taken at Chatsworth House RHS Flower show. One of my planned days out. ) Click onto the images to take you to a larger view.

Gertrude at the age of eight was taken for ‘education’ to the White’s Indiana Manual Labour Institute to be separated from her family.  We can only imagine what some of those camps were like.  She later wrote about the misery of those early days in this school in her later published book ‘The School Days of an Indian Girl’   I have included the pdf link to some of her book in the link. 

I will leave this video with you to explain the life of Gertrude Simmons Bonnin a most remarkable woman who stood up for Native American Women.. 

 

May we see all things as opportunities and gifts to be used in beauty and love..  We are all of us going through a cleansing process, the world is mirroring this.. So do not get embroiled in day today negative drama, step into your own power and into  your own world of peace. Embrace Nature, See beauty in ALL things, Open your hearts and as you do so will your world about you change into one of harmony and balance. 

You may find yourself needing extra rest, and sleep, I know I have, so allow yourself to go with the flow…

And know All is well in your world..

Love and Blessings 

Rules:

So here are the Rules if you should wish to take part.. But you know me, Rules are meant to be bent a little now and again also.

Tree Medicine..

Photobucket

It was only in dreamtime that those memories came to haunt her.. She had always been a restless sleeper, and her grandmother had long known that her dreamtime experiences went further than normal dreaming.. Aponi’s wisdom had known even before her birth that she was going to be a special child. She knew she was a Dreamwalker, one who could travel beyond this vale.

But she also knew that her granddaughter needed much guidance to be able to develop her skills for she was fragile in her emotions.. But Aponi had been told by the wisdom keepers that her granddaughter had much work to do, she needed schooling in the old ways.. A task Aponi had much pleasure in teaching her.

The Spirit Elders watched over Aponi’s task, which they had charged her with to teach her granddaughter  Muna all she knew. Muna’s name had been well chosen, it meant Overflowing Spring  in her Hopi tribe.  They had watched over the infant and would travel in and around her world until she was ready for the task she had come to this earth to fulfil in this modern age where the old ways would be needed to be called upon again. 

So Aponi had taught her grandchild the Earth medicine and she had done it in such a way even her grandchild was unaware that these were in fact lessons. For they came as natural as breathing to her. Such was her love of the outdoors and all of Nature she absorbed each piece of information Aponi gave her and remembered everything.

Aponi had only been too pleased to teach her granddaughter to connect with the Forests, and about the many animals. She spoke of the Trees being the Lungs of this earth, and how they gave us not only the air we breathed in, but the tools to live.. She taught her about the various varieties of Trees and their uses, and how their barks and fruits, leaves and shoots could all be used in various ways…

Coming off the Moor we enter a beatuiful Silver Birch wood.One of her Granddaughter’s favourites was that of the Silver Birch, it is graceful in form with its silver bark, was known as ‘Lady of the Woods’.. Aponi took pride in teaching her how its medicine had been used throughout the centuries and told her how it was a cleansing tree..

That the Silver Birch Twigs were used to make Brooms to sweep clean, and beat out negative influences, clearing the way for renewal. She was told how in the past Criminals were thought to have come under the influence of ‘Bad Spirits’, and were ‘Birched’ as an act of cleansing. And how land boundaries were beaten with Birch twigs each year in order drive out the spirits of the old year, the old energy which may have got stuck there, and let the new energy flourish . . Aponi taught her how the Birch shed its leaves and twigs and even its bark, teaching us to let go of unwanted aspects of ourselves to be free to move forward to new beginnings. The heart shaped leaves reminding us to follow our hearts desires.. ..

Aponi had taught her how the sap was tapped in March for syrup which was used as a Sugar, and could be used to make wine. Also Oil made from Birch bark was used in tanning of leather and the oil too when added with almond oil soothed aching muscles when used to massage the skin.

She taught her how the bark is water resistant, containing large amounts of resin, and how in the past it was used for roofing, shoes, and making canoes and in baskets and paper making. The young leaves too could be collected in late spring and early summer to be dried . These could be used in infusions such as teas, to act as a gentle sedative, to break up kidney stones, or gallstones, or to use as a mouthwash for sore mouths..

Birch leaves are a tonic as well as an antiseptic and Aponi had many women from the town come seek relief from cystitis and other urinary infections which the Birch medicine helped relieve. ..

Aponi taught her Granddaughter many things,  how to be careful when removing the bark from trees and to do so in small patches, for as to remove it in a continuous ring around the trunk, the tree would die… This was just one of the many lessons of nature her Grandmother gave in her teachings of Earth medicine. 

Many more were taught not only on the medicinal properties of Natures larder, But of the Spiritual elements of them too.. Birch brings boldness, helping to clear a path in our energy, as changes come. Aponi taught her the great wealth of knowledge that comes from the Earth, that many now didn’t even remember or practice.

Aponi too was saddened as many of her own Native tribes had also lost their ways and forgotten to live in harmony and within the balance of our Earth Mother. Forgetting the Ancient ways. Many were now lost.. 

One of the most revered lessons Muna was taught was that of the Trees, was that Trees span the five elements . Their branches held high in the AIR, they take their energy from the FIRE, the Sun, and their roots go deep into the EARTH, drinking from the living WATERS of the Earth. Aponi also taught Muna, that they inhabit the fifth element, SPIRIT, and that we are all able to connect with them..

Aponi told the story of the tree spirits in one of her bedtime lessons, and how important meetings were held under large trees, And how they listened to us, and shared their energy, and if we listened how they would speak to on the breath of the wind, as their leaves shook and branches creaked… And how they shared their gifts of fruits and nuts and most important of all, giving us our very life’s breath to breathe. And how they sacrificed themselves for fuel and shelter, and how important it was to communicate with their wisdom, for they were old and wise. Holding a wealth of knowledge as they had stood and watched the comings and goings of human kind some for hundreds of years..

Aponi spoke on how if one were to cut down a tree, or take a branch, a limb, one should always ask the trees permission, this allowed for the Tree spirits to withdraw, allowing the tree to die, however Aponi told her that even after the tree was cut down and the wood was used, either carved or polished into a piece of furniture or some ornament, some of the trees spirit would still be within its wood, and how people would always want to reach out and touch it, stroke its smooth surface admiring its colour and grain, thus touching the wood for luck.. as they felt the Trees spirit.

Muna sat now remembering once more all the Tree Medicine, as she sat with her back connecting to her favourite tree.. It was indeed time to reach within and bring out the wisdom she knew she had within her..

It was time for her to awaken others, she was ready.. As she became like the Birch Tree she sat beside..   It was time to let go of unwanted aspects of herself, to be free to move forward, to new beginnings… She turned to the four directions, and bowed respectfully to each.. She gave thanks as she gave the tree some tobacco from her medicine pouch

Her journey was just beginning..

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love...
