It is important to recognize the polarity, positive and negative entities providing messages. The key is to pay attention. For those who are seeking the truth the signs may be more noticable. Common signs would be dreams, numerology ringing or buzzing in the left or right ear.

I had two dreams I will share with you. I have been seeking the truth for quite some time. For two nights in a row, I had the same dream, it was simply a tune that sounded faintly familiar, but no lyrics. It was driving me crazy so I started listening to songs and two days later finally found it, Lonesome Loser.

unnamedAnother dream was a woman wrapped up like a mummy, limping and walked to me and said, this is what love does to you. Both dreams were talking about love and how it hurts.

Numerology is a common sign, 111, 222, etc, are considered wake up calls. It is a language of its own and eventually, if you pay attention, you begin to understand.

Nature is a big thing for me. An Eagle flying over and a white dove sitting on my house c4064395220043c3da33dd21256ac170which I have never seen before. Owls and hawks being more active during some of my thoughts. While in the garden,contemplating and wondering if I am on right track, I would see a dragonfly until I had my answer and then it would disappear. Tones in the left or right ears during my thoughts occur often. Again, these are just some of my signs that I have experienced.

The Native American Spiritual Journey

Native Americans had much love and wisdom for mother earth and a spiritual way of images (54) chief josphlife. They shared a common belief the earth is a spiritual presences that must be honored, not mastered. Unfortunately, western Europeans had different idea. To them the Americas was a beautiful but savage land to use as they saw fit.
Unlike many traditions, the spiritual wisdom of the native American is not found in a set of scriptural materials, but was part of the fabric of daily life and experience. I find it amazing how these 20 concepts the Native Americans left for us to live by is the same messages other great teachers, sacred texts and religions.

The Native American Code of Ethics 

  1. Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often. The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak. 
  1. 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. 
  1. 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. 
  1. 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. 
  1. Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the532458_10151316305801368_751690132_n wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours. 
  1. Respect all things that are placed upon this earth – whether it be people or plant. 
  1. 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.

  1. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven. images (40)
  1. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism. 
  1. Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us. Animals, plants and other living creatures are all part of your worldly family. 
  1. 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. 
  1. Avoid hurting the hearts of others. The poison of your pain will return to you.

  1. Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.

We may differ in our faith, religion, and culture, yet we all live together on the same mother Earth.  We are only custodians and not owners of mother Earth, not its conquerors nor its destroyers.  Be true to yourself by being true to nature. We are one.    

Chief Seattle said, “All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth.” 

Native American Prayer

Oh, Great Spirit                        images (40)

Whose voice I hear in the winds,

And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me, I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.

f62be29bf3e8ba2ff3739268ae22f947--native-american-sayings-american-indiansMake my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.

Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

 

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,3b6f2341f9be56ec513da5b22529b265--native-americans-love-this

but to fight my greatest enemy – myself.

Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes.

So when life fades, as the fading sunset, my Spirit may come to you without shame.

 

(translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887)
