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.

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..

 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

Peace and Tranquillity

Spending time out in Nature for me is one of the joys of life. And in June of this year, I got to go to the fabulous RHS Chatsworth Flower Show.   During Summer I spend more time out in nature tending our allotments and our home garden..   This last couple of weeks as you saw in my last post here on Dreamwalkers Sanctuary  I have been busy watching Wimbledon, and what a fortnight it has been with some amazing tennis played and some remarkable wins.

 So along with some Photo’s I took of the flower exhibits at Chatsworth here is a poem I wrote some years ago now that you may find elsewhere on my blog , as I looked and as coincidence will have it I re-posted it around this time last year.

 Enjoy the flowers.. I hope too you find time to go out into Nature and enjoy all she has to offer, as you find your own corner of Peace and Tranquillity. Sending you All Love and Light as I gradually work my way to repaying your lovely visits.. xxx

Tranquil Garden

Sitting in the garden, as Blackbird sings her tune,

Summer is here, as we welcome the month of June

Foxgloves are in flower, as the Bumblebee explores

And new growth is around us, this time I just adore.

The fountain in the garden is tranquil, hear it flow

As peacefulness surrounds me, As I drift in Sun’s warm glow

The wind chimes they do tinkle, and the breeze just gently blows

And the pigeon in the tree top her cooing never slows

A neighbours cat is cooling, laid out beneath the shade 

Oh how I love these tranquil, peaceful lazy days.

The grass appears much greener, or is it just my eyes,

For when we are contented, nature gives us our best prize.

We just have to take a moment in quiet thoughtful pose

To enjoy the bliss around us and be thankful I suppose.

Do we ever take a moment to give our heartfelt thanks?

For somewhere people are fighting and living with enemy Tanks.

So Bless those quiet moments of peace within your home for you never know when it could be shattered, and darkness soon enclose

So enjoy the moments of each bright new sunny day

As we say goodbye to rain-clouds in this last day of May,

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... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
