Invite to Jion me Daily….

Each morning before I get out of my bed for the day there is a few things I do faithfully. First is, I Give thanks for waking up one more day, for this day is full of untold Opportunity. Then I make my first decision of the my day… the only important one if one was to ask me… I decide if I am going to live this 1 day walking in my fears or Living in my FAITH. Today, after years of doing this, I can tell you it is an easy decision for me. Please don’t mistake this to mean my life is Easy, for it truly is not. But Creator gave me power over 2 things when I woke up…how I Choose to think and how I Choose to feel about anything and everything. NOTICE I GET TO CHOOSE, but it is also all the power I have to change. I can change how I think and how I feel…everything beyond that is the Creator’s department. Next thing I do is mother nature calls for my boys (service dogs) and self and on days I am able, I put on the morning coffee. Then I climb back in bed and LISTEN TO #DailyAudioBible on my laptop. I contemplate what I have read from the #EldersMeditation and have the privilege of being allowed to re~post it for the rest of you, while I Listen to Daily Audio Bible.

Someone that was very dear to me always said, ” I only go where I get FED”. No, he did not mean food. That was his guidance in his life. If where he was going or who he was with did not somehow FEED his Soul…he just did not want to bother. He said life was way too short not to get to the dessert first.

So I invite everyone to Listen daily with me to Daily Audio Bible, to continue reading the wisdom of the Elder’s meditations, and most importantly PRAY and MEDITATE> follow up on whatever God of your own understanding places upon your heart. It has been those things placed upon my heart that seemed crazy even to me, that in the end brought the most amazing incidents into my life. These tiny things built the faith I have today.

I truly believe through PRAYER, we together CAN change the world. Choose to LIVE in a CIRCLE in 2014.

May each step of 2014 bring about more awareness, more compassion, more love, more healings, more willingness to compromise to do whatever is best for the “GOOD OF THE ALL”

Let us all Choose to make 2014 a PRAYERFULL YEAR! Wado, 1 Woman walkin in faith

Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 31

“They must give themselves to Wakan’ Tanka and live a spiritual life. They will have the peace that frees them from fear.”
–Frank Fools Crow, LAKOTA

There are two wills available for us: self will and God’s will. Our choice is: figure it out ourselves, or have the Creator involved in our lives. If we are honest with ourselves and look at past experiences, what are our lives like when we try to figure it out ourselves? Is there fear, confusion, frustration, anger, attacking others, conflict, fault finding, manipulation, teasing others, belittling others or devaluation? If these things are present, they indicate that we are choosing self will. What is it like if we turn our will over to the Creator? What are the results if we ask the Great Spirit to guide our life? Examples are: freedom, choices, consequences, love forgiveness, helping others, happiness, joy, solutions, and peace. Which will I choose today, self will or God’s will?

Creator, I know what my choice is. I want You to direct my life. I want You to direct my thinking. You are the Grandfather. You know what I need even before I do. Today I ask You to tell me what I can do for You today. Tell me in a way I can understand and I will be happy to do it.

 

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
In the past year we have seen many ups and downs and our struggles are still continuing. We have people who constantly strive to cause dissension and slow us down. It is truly no different today than it was a hundred years ago or before that. We must learn to walk forward and keep blinders on so we are focused and can make things happen for the good of our people. “We do not have a single appointed KING or QUEEN of the Indians and never will even though some may believe they have that right to sit on a throne”. This is why we have formed councils to try and make good things come forth. We need to all look at the common causes and stop the immaturity of; he said she said or I am not going there because so and so is there. When people finally decide to grow up maybe we can get our rights recognized and the ancestors will be proud of who we really are striving to be. We must always include Creator in everything that we do.
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please help us all to mature in good ways and work together in the upcoming year. Help us all to re learn the word respect and to find the Unity and Love we should be doing instead of Destruction and Hatred towards each other. Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin

UPDATE ON MEDICAID AND ORIGINAL MEDICARE IN STATE OF NEVADA

SAMPLE TS
NOW that a new assestment was made…thought I would let you know what I will receive. the pic above is the new timesheets for me…I went from 12hours per week to a whooping 17.25 hours per week. I call all the numbers Medicare told me to call that take Original Medicare and pay caregivers….WELL maybe it is time for Medicare to check the facts you have been given. In Nevada my choices are go to one of the LIVE IN FACILITIES such as ST. MARY’s or RENOWN. When I called them I and my caregiver were informed they don’t do caregivers, only skilled and nurses but I can get those if I move in.

NOTICE I DON’T EVEN GET MEDICATION REMINDERS THOUGH THEY HAVE A LETTER FROM MY DOCTOR. THE SAME ONE ALREADY POSTED ONLINE. OR TIME FOR ANY OF THE DOCTORS REQUESTS….MEANWHILE I HAVE HAD PREMIUMS TAKING OF THE TOP OF MY CHECK SINCE MAY 1990.

THANK YOU THE STATE OF NEVADA FOR INCREASING MY ASSISTANCE FROM 12 HOURS to 17.25. what does medicare give you as a state for me? oh YES I KNOW THEY WILL GIVE YOU 400,000 PER YEAR IF I GO LIVE IN YOUR FACILITY. PRESIDENT OBAMA MAYBE SOMEONE NEEDS TO LOOK INTO WHO OWNS THOSE FACILITIES OR THE HOLDING COMPANIES THAT OWN THEM. I SAY THAT BECAUSE IN NEVADA, THE WHOLE SYSTEM IS SET UP TO TAKE TAKE TAKE AND GIVES THE PEOPLE NOTHING BUT EXCUSES AND THE PREVERBIAL CIRCLE JERK.

WHERE IS MY GAS VOUCHERS FOR DOCTOR APPTS? WHERE IS MY LIEAP, RECIEVING SSI MEANS I DO NOT HAVE TO APPLY. WHICH I DID DO WITH THE FIRST APPT YOU SET ME UP AT LAST YEAR SEPT. 2012. WHY DOES MY WORKER ONLY GET PAID HALF HOUR TO TAKE ME TO APPTS? AND THEN YOU HAVE MADE IT SUCH A CHORE TO GET PAID FOR IT…IT IS DISCOURAGING TO EVEN TRY TO COLLECT FOR A 1/2 HOUR PAY WHEN YOU JUST SPENT 2-3 HOURS AT THE DOCTORS. I WONDER IF THE WORKERS YOU HAVE BRING PATIENTS OVER FROM RENOWN HOSPITAL NEXT DOOR TO UNR FOR DOCTOR APPTS. GET PAID WHILE THEY WAIT AND TEND AND ASSIST THEIR PATIENT OR DO THEY TOO JUST GET 1/2 HR PAY? JUST WONDERING. OH YES IT DOESN’T HELP THAT MY OWN CAREGIVER HAD CANCER AND WAS PROMPTLY FIRED (ALSO AGAINST THE LAW) BUT IN NEVADA THEY THINK FEDERAL LAWS DON’T APPLY TO NEVADA. I am not elegible for Access for rides to doctor appts due to having original Medicare.

SO @PRESIDENT OBAMA, DO I LIE CHEAT AND STEAL WHAT IS RIGHTFULLY MINE BACK OR WHAT? Saddest thing is this, IF I were to do that, I would live better in jail. and Get medical equal to what I get now, not much. So how about refunding my medicare premiums and I will buy my own and since Nevada give me no option to get Obama care I will have to hunt which will aloow my medical equipment and expenses. Some don’t get cover and come out of pocket each month. TELL ME WHAT AM I TO DO? TELL PME PLEASE! HOW LONG IS THE 1% THAT IS UNDERHANDED GONNA GET TO KEEP TELLING US TO BEND OVER AND TAKE IT LIKE A MAN? IN CASE NO ONE NOTICED I AM A WOMAN AND I WANT MY FLIPPIN KISS ON THE WAY TO GET SCREWED OVER; IF NO ONE MINDS! THANK YOU.
PLEASE CREATOR, THAT REDHEAD from HP FOR 5 MINUTES YOU KNOW THE ONE I TOLD IT WILL SNOW WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND SHE INFORMED ME THE WEATHERMAN SAID………AND I REPLIED WITH I DON’T CARE WHAT THE WEATHERMAN SAID; MY BODY SAYS AND IS FAR MORE ACCURATE.

ONLY HOPE I HAVE LEFT, WHEN I WENT TO THE DOC’S COUPLE DAYS AGO (one no one helps pay for to buy a license that no one helps pay for for a medicine that no one helps pay for on my pennies. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I MET A DOC LIKE ME AND GOT REFERRED TO ANOTHER DOCTOR THAT MAY BE ABLE TO CURE ME. NOW I HOLD ON TO THAT HOPE. 53 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH TO HAVE EVEY JERK ON THE PLANET LABEL, RIDICULE YOU, AND THROW YOU TO THE WOLVES TO SAVE THEIR OWN BUTTS. 2014 I WILL BE CURED OR I WILL PRAY UNTIL I DIE. WHICH EVER COMES FIRST, BUT IT WILL OCCUR IN 2014. MOSES AND NOAH AND EVEN THE CHRISTED ONE, ALL WERE LABELED, RIDICULED AND EVEN TOSSED TO THE WOLVES.

AND WHEN I GET MY WALMART GOLD CARD, IT TOO WAS COMPRISED (A FLIPPIN PREPAID THAT MY SSA AND SSI GO TO ON THE 1ST AND 3RD) HAS BEEN CUT UP FOR OVER HALF THE MONTH OF DECEMBER SO EXCUSE ME IF I AM NOT REAL CHEERY SINCE TODAY I AM WORRYING IF I WILL EVEN HAVE ACCESS TO MY SSA AND SSI CHECK TO GET MEDS ECT. since my cards still have not arrived. AND THANK YOU FOR THE 1 DOLLAR INCREASE IN MY SSI. NOW I WILL RECIEVE 81 SSI AND 10 increase to 650 SSA…..NO HELP FOR HOUSING, MEDICAID IS A JOKE AND YES THEY DO GiVE ME A FEW FOOD STAMPS AND NOT any ENERGY ASSISTANCE, AND I USE MORE THAN MOST DUE TO DME LIKE ELECTRIC WHEELCHAIRS THAT LITERALLY GET ME TO THE BATHROOM TWICE AND HAS TO GO BACK ON THE ELECTRIC CHARGER. REAL HELPFUL THAT IT IS PARKED TO CHARGE 98% PERCENT OF THE TIME RUNNING UP THE ELECTRIC BILL I CAN’T AFFORD LIVING WITH A STEP SIBLING AND HE IS FIXING TO LOOSE THIS HOUSE. SO I GUESS MY OPTIONS WILL BE WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN SINCE I GOT ON SOCIAL SECURITY……….

THESE ARE THE VERY THINGS THAT PUT GOOD PEOPLE IN NO WIN SITUATIONS WHERE THEY DO THINGS LIKE LIGHT THEMSELF ON FIRE ON THE WHITE HOUSE SIDEWALK. NO HOPE….EVERYONE PROUD THAT YOUR ACTIONS AND INACTIONS ARE CREATING THESE ISSUES IN OTHER PEOPLE LIVES…OR IS EVERYTHING JUST THE BOTTOM DOLLAR WITH FOLKS THAT THINK OF NOTHING BUT WHAT THEY WANT AND WHO THEY GOT TO SCREW TO GET IT AND HOW FAST CAN THE GET IT. I AM ASHAMED TODAY TO EVEN ADMIT TO BEING PART OF THE HUMAN RACE.

I SIT HERE TODAY MAKING PRAYER TIES…144 FOR MOTHER EARTH’S HEALING. TIME FOR HER TO SHAKE THE TICKS OF HER BACK. I TRULY DO NOT LIKE PEOPLE AND THEN TO HAVE A LIFE MISSION OF HELPING THE VERY THING YOU DON’T LIKE. CREATOR IS LAUGHIN HER BUTT OFF AT ME. BACK TO PRAYER TIES FOR HUMANITY AND MOTHER EARTH. I GOT A L O T OF PRAYING TO DO.

PS>and the 250 minutes go fast when you are getting the circle jerk of call this place and that place to get what I used to have an ADVOCATE but I don’t get those either. Anyone ever consider if you give me what I need to be as well as possible I may one day be able to return to work then you could borrow against my sorry hiney in the world market. with the www I had hoped to get a job at home someday that is not one of those survey bs things that no one ever gets paid for doing. AHR is not really helpful for folks like me when we don’t even have enough for the filing fees etc. not to mention no credit. So what to do when you can’t even hire a lawyer to defend your rights? what I can say is watch the news and you see what some of the others are doing. robbing banks, breaking into homes, dealing drugs, lighting themselves on fire, need I go on?

Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 30

“Always remember.that the Great Mystery is good; evil can come only from ourselves!”
–Grandmother of Charles Eastman. SANTEE SIOUX

The Great Mystery is love, good and principle. He is a guiding Father. He doesn’t play games. He knows only how to love. Sometimes, when things go wrong, we blame Him or others. Usually, if we are honest, we can see how decisions or things done in the past put us in a position to be hurt. It comes back to us. When this happens, it is not something the Creator caused, but something we, ourselves caused. Most of our problems are of our own making. When this happens, we should correct what we’ve done, ask the Great Spirit for forgiveness and pray for guidance in the future.

My Creator, bless me with Your good.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
In everything we do let us try to always include asking Creator and the Ancestors to help us and to guide us. Lets take responsibility for our deeds even if they are wrong. This builds good character and teaches our children to become fully responsible and take pride in who they are. If we owe apologies then we need to get it done. Our criticizing others for what they do just causes more disappointment. We should pray for those who cause trouble and ask that their health, welfare and safety be protected. Expectations are often disappointing because we hold people on pedestals instead of at eye level.
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for the many Blessings you have given to me and please help me to know myself better in strengths and weaknesses. Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 29

“What you see with your eyes shut is what counts.”
–Lame Deer, LAKOTA

Another whole world opens up when we close our eyes and calm our mind. Be still and know; be still and hear; be still and see; be still and feel. Inside every person is a still, small voice. Sometime it is necessary to close our eyes to shut down our perception in order to see. Try this occasionally; when you are talking to your child or spouse, close your eyes and listen to them. Listen to the tone of their voice; listen to their excitement; listen to their pain-listen.

Great Spirit, today, let me hear only what really counts.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we listen to our inner self it is usually right. Some think it is conscience or gut feeling others refer to it as ancestors guiding us. What ever it is we need to seek the assistance more often. Learning to meditate and pray helps us to be able to pay better attention to others when they speak. Watch the expressions of a blind person when you converse with one and you will see a person who is truly in Creators guidance, Children are in the same reality so it is important to listen to them because they are human beings not things we own.
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for giving me insight and also please help me to pay attention to others in better ways. Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 28

“I believe that being a medicine man, more than anything else, is a state of mind, a way of looking at and understanding this earth, a sense of what it is all about.” –Lame Deer, LAKOTA … The Medicine Wheel explains different ways of looking at the world. The four directions are the East, the South, the West and the North. In the East is the view of the eagle-the eagle flies high and sees the earth from that point of view. The South his the direction of the mouse. Moving on the earth, the mouse will not see what the eagle sees. Both the eagle and the mouse see the truth. The West is the direction of the bear-the bear will see different from the mouse and the eagle. From the North comes the point of view of the bison. To be a Medicine Man you must journey through all points of view and develop the mind to see the interconnectedness of all four directions. This takes time, patience and an open mind. Eventually, you understand there is only love.
Great Spirit, today, allow my mind to stay open.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations, How many take time to actually look and pray at the four directions daily? Is there something lacking in your life? Maybe the time has come forth to change the bad things into good things. The fork is in the road and it is time to choose the correct one, But both paths in the fork are correct because whichever one you choose it will be correct to yourself. Seek out the Elders and learn while it is not too late. Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW
Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for placing my life at the forks in the path. Please help me to seek out the best path to walk. Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day December 27

“When temptation comes, I don’t say, `Yes,” and I don’t say, `No.’ I say, `Later,’ I just keep walking the Red Road-down the middle. When you’re in the middle, you don’t go to either extreme. You allow both sides to exist.”
–Dr. A. C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA

We need to practice controlling our focus. Whatever we focus on we become. We also become whatever we practice. We need to focus on balance. Whenever something comes along to tilt us off balance, we need to be grateful, because it allows the opportunity to practice our focus. Sometimes this is called temptation. Temptation in itself is not bad. What really counts is what we do with it when it happens. We need to practice controlling our focus and keeping our thinking focused on the Red Road.

Great Spirit, today, guide me through my temptations and allow me to focus on the Red Road.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
We cannot get mixed up with straddling a barbed wire fence. We walk the side that feels most comfortable for us. We let Creator take full control and show us direction.
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for taking good care of me and helping me to have a better understanding of life and the importance of accepting things rather than resist them.
Welálin/ThankYou,MsitNókmaq,ChiMiigwetch,MitaukeOyasin
