Native Ceremonies.

Corn Dance... Seeds of Truth.......


Native ceremonies Help people to remember their responsibilities to nature around them and to the Universe. In Australia the Aboriginal people speak of ‘Dreaming’ and again these stories are passed down word of mouth through generations.

When Western science meets the stories of the indigenous peoples of both cultures, the Western approach fails to understand that native stories are stories of origin, which are a creative interpretation of the experiences of peoples within places, which are interwoven with metaphoric meaning.

We tend to not understand, because many refuse to open their minds as to any other possibilities than their own meanings of man’s origin.

To the Native everything is considered to be “alive”, and imbued with ‘Spirit Energy’ even the pebble has its own form and energy. And everything is interrelated to everything around us. They understand the relationship of Time and Space between living and none living things. Understanding not only the physical, but the psychological and Spiritual, which involves ‘Dreams’, ‘Visions’ and that ‘knowing’. And Know that life is a circle of learning..And to help remember and create harmony, between Earth, Sky, and its peoples, many ceremonies and blessings of gratitude took place and one of these is the Corn Dance ..

The Corn Dance rituals were performed at particular times of the year during various growing cycles, bringing their community together to celebrate and remember the sacredness of Corn and all plant life upon which they depended.. In which we all depend upon today.. The indigenous not only expressed the relationship between plant and animal world, but they built great canals.. The Hohokam people built these canals in the Tuscan Valley, long before the arrival of Europeans. The Hohokam systems were able to supply the irrigation needs of over fourteen thousand acres of cropland. They understood agriculture and how to maintain key plants such as corn. The ceremony associated with Corn showed the community how important it was for all to work together in order for survival.

Native People loved their gardens and grew Corn, Tobacco Aramanth and quinoa and were spiritually symbolic of Native myths and cosmologies.

The Following Story is of the Tuscarora Corn Spirit.

In a time long ago, in a village that was well known for its plentiful corn harvest, became negligent of respecting the Corn Spirit. The people had become so used to the bountiful harvests they took them for granted. And they let the weeds grow in their gardens, and didn’t store their seeds correctly, nor did they give thanks for their harvest to the Corn Spirit.

They soon found that the mice ate the Corn they had carelessly stored. So the men began to hunt, but found they could find no game, and so soon the people began to starve.

There was only one man who kept the covenant of respect to the Corn Spirit, his name was Dayohagwenda, and his garden produced rich harvests of corn. One day when Dayohagwenda was picking herbs, he came upon an old man dressed in rags and weeping. He asked the old man what was wrong. The old man said.” Your people have forgotten me, I am the Corn Spirit and I will soon die”

Dayohagwenda returned to his village and told them that the Corn Spirit would soon die if they didn’t return to their ways of honouring him, through careful planting, weeding and harvesting and storing their corn. So they immediately began to do this and their corn once again thrived in abundance, as they gave thanks to the Corn Spirit for blessing their food..

Morden Native peoples and farmers are today under threat by huge corporations that are genetically altering seeds so that they will not germinate unless a particular agricultural chemical is added. This technology is spreading to other seed suppliers which would prevent farmers from harvesting seeds from their own original seeds, thus requiring them to purchase new seeds each season..

The Power of our Thoughts

The Power of Our Thoughts

I am always talking about the power of our thoughts and how they are very much underestimated and the tendency among light-workers is to think that we are individually too insignificant to make a difference.

But with an understanding given to us by Ancient Wisdom, our thinking can be put in harmony with what we know of the Divine Plan, and within that plan, we can generate thought-forms of quality that can turn the battle with the Dark Forces/negative in our favour to that of the Light Forces/Positive..

We can change our world by sending out our thoughts like sowing them like seeds upon the wind, casting them out to all who will listen..

As world karma plays out, we, have the right to invoke light and help from the Spiritual Hierarchy. We forget that we need to ask for help from those Higher realms of existence.. We must remember we have Free Will and the Hierarchy cannot interfere unless we request that help...

We have to decipher the truth about what is going on, no matter what the mass media is telling us. Let us turn around the seeds that the Dark Forces have planted within our minds.. For that is what they do.. They plant Fear to control us..

The mass consciousness exists on the lower mental plane work alongside our emotions with the astral plane. They oscillate between mental and astral. The mass consciousness then mirrors the fact that the vast majority of the earth's populations live according to emotional impulses and basic mental functions necessary to survive which provides ready fodder to the Dark Forces.

Mother Earth is at this moment helping bring about Compassion as we see the signs of the Earth Changes in weather patterns, Fires, Earthquakes and Flood disasters.

The mass consciousness can reach more individuals than the mass media and can gain considerable momentum in shifting the balance of light and darkness on earth. It will touch the minds of people in their sleep, in quiet moments of contemplation during the day, in prayers, and even in the most unexpected moments of one's daily life. And as minds change, so will the rebalancing begin to manifest on the earth plane.

Finally, we have the right and power to send our enlightened thoughts into the mass consciousness, without hatred or emotion but as a matter of duty, being lightworkers in our incarnation on earth. This whole thought process is done internally far from the eyes of the Dark Forces and has the incalculable force of the cosmos behind it. Think and so create the world you wish to live in .

I know what sort world I wish to live is so let us all start to create it, and think Harmonious thoughts so the balance can be addressed.

Heal the World


Ripple Effect.

Ripple Effect.

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..

Each word and thought a vibration of energy that even though our eyes cannot see it, travels out from the source of our creation, our minds to those whom we touch, with either a kind or harsh word.

The impact you have on the world is greater than you could ever imagine, and the choices you make can have far-reaching consequences. You can use the ripple effect to make a positive difference and spread waves of kindness that will wash over the world. Or you can contribute to its destruction by adding your negativity to help the dark-side win the battle that is now being played out. Someone feeling the effects of negative energy will be more likely to pass on that negative energy.

So should the opportunity arise, and you feel compelled to do a good deed for someone else. One act of charity, one thoughtful deed, or even one positive thought can pass from individual to individual, snowballing until it becomes a group movement or the ray of hope that saves someone’s life.

Every transformation, just like every ripple, has a point of origin. You must believe in your ability to be that point of origin if you want to use the ripples you create to spread goodness. Consider the effect of your thoughts and actions, and try to act graciously as much as possible.

To smile at a stranger, a compliment given to a friend, an attitude of laughter, or a thoughtful gesture can send ripples that spread among your loved ones, out into your community, and finally throughout the world. You have the power to touch the lives of everyone you come into contact with and everyone those people come into contact with. The momentum of your influence will grow as your ripples moves onward and outward.

One of those ripples could become a tidal wave of love and kindness.


Season’s of Life

There was once a man who had four Sons; He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly, so he sent them each on a Quest, in turn to go and look at a Pear Tree that was a great distance away.

The first son went in the Winter; the second son went in the Spring, and the third son in the Summer, and the youngest son in the Fall.

When they had all gone and returned, he called them together to describe what they had all seen.

The First son said that the Tree was Ugly, Bent, and Twisted.

The Second son said it was covered in green buds and full of promise

The Third son disagreed, he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen.

The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfilment.

The man explained to his sons that they were ALL correct, because they had each only seen one season in the trees life.

He told then you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only One Season.

That is the essence of who they are, and the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up.

If you give up when it’s Winter you will miss the promise of your Spring, the beauty of your Summer, and the fulfilment of your Fall.

Don’t let the pain on One Season destroy the joy of all the rest,

Don’t judge Life by One Difficult Season.

Persevere through the difficult patches, and better times are sure to come in time.

Aspire to Inspire!

Live Simply,........ Love Generously,.......... Care Deeply,...... Speak Kindly

And leave the rest to the Universe.

Trails keep you Strong, Sorrows Keep you Human, Failure Keeps you Humble

And Success keeps you growing.

Know that You are part of that Oneness,

Take care, and be safe , through ALL the Seasons of your Life..
