Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 31

“The old Lakota Elder was wise. He knew that man’s heart away from nature becomes hard; he knew the lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to a lack of respect for humans too. So he kept his youth close to its softening influence.”
–Luther Standing Bear, OGLALA SIOUX

When we live in nature it’s like constantly being in school. We are in an environment that is always teaching. We are constantly being reminded hat there are laws, Natural Laws, which are running the
universe. Once we know these laws and we drift from them, we start to live our lives in a different way. Soon we become discontent, selfish and disrespectful. Then, we get in trouble. If our lives have become this way, it can be reversed by going back to nature to be among our teachers.

Great Spirit, teach men, again, the Natural Laws.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we wake in the mornings and go through the day, what do we have at its end? Have we learned anything? Did we disrespect anyone? Did we live this day to do good instead of bad? What was our accomplishments for the day? What were our losses? Did we show love and compassion to everyone we came into contact with? These things are necessary to understand if we are to grow in a more Spiritual way. Have I applied any of this to my life today?
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please help me to walk the ways of the Grandfathers and Grandmothers to learn as much as I am able to and then teach it to my future generations. Thank you for all you let me accomplish in a single day Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 30

“If anyone has children, they better teach their children to follow the traditions that we’re leaving
behind because it is later than we think with all that’s going on.”
–Juanita Centeno, CHUMASH

The habits, attitudes and beliefs that carry the human through the trials of life are developed at a very young age. If we are taught respect at a very young age, the odds are we’ll be respectful through our whole lives. If we are taught to dance at a young age, we’ll dance our whole lives. If we are taught to sing the traditional songs while we are young, we’ll sing those songs through out whole lives. And weho do we drum and sing songs to? Our children. This is how we keep it going.

Great Spirit, today, teach me to teach the children.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Children do learn quicker than adults because their memory banks are not cluttered with old files. If you show a child how to do something once they will usually be able to do it themselves. The answer to a so called wild child is not prozac but let the child be normal. Now days if a child is rowdy they are considered hyper and given meds to stop normal behavior. Pills are the answer to the whitemans world today a pill for everything. It all is synthetic now days and the natural medicines are being deleted from pharmacopia. Teach our children to be real not robots.
~ Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please help me to see that children are entitled to live just as I had. Help me to show direction when I am supposed to and to help any child that comes
forward wanting help. Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 29

“Tell the people not to cry. Tell them to be happy.”
–John Fire Lame Deer, LAKOTA (told to his son, Archie, s/he died)

Our Elders know about the two Worlds, the Physical World and the Spiritual World. Many times, before we pass to the Spirit World, our relatives, who have gone there before us, will come for us and they will help us. The Spirit World, the Elders say, is a good, happy and harmonious place. When we die, it means we have only entered another world. We will all see one another again.

Great Spirit, allow me to understand both the Spirit World and the Physical World. Today, let me be happy.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
A lot of controversy goes on when people who have terminal illness and they are wanting to die. The government steps in and interferes with the wishes of the person and family. If a person decides they want to pass on then it should be their sole decision alone, not the government or anyone else. I do not believe it is suicidal because the death sentence was already passed when the person was terminally diagnosed. But then again people should be absolutely sure because Doctors do mis-diagnose; “They are not perfect”. Creator has the necessary means to heal people, I have seen it done. The use of the Sacred Pipes have healed many.
~Arthur Medicine Eagle – Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld,

If my friends and family are ill I humbly ask you to help them so they may heal. If you choose differently then I will understand because you have a plan far greater than imaginable by us humans. Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 28

“Sacred sites and areas are protection for all people—the four colors for man—and these sites are in all areas of the earth in the four directions.”
–Traditional Circle of Elders, NORTHERN CHEYENNE

The Elders say that values come from the Mother Earth. Different places and areas around the Earth have different values. The Water people live in harmony and know the values that correspond to that particular part of the Earth. The Desert people know the values of the desert and respect and live in harmony with that part of the Earth. The Woodland people know the values of their part of the Earth and live in harmony. If you live in harmony with the Earth, you will live a life that is full of values. We should have great respect for the Mother Earth.

Grandfather, today, let me learn values from Mother Earth.

<:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:>

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
How do we distinguish what is and where Sacred sights are when All that Creator has created is Sacred? The ground we walk on is as Sacred as the air we breathe and just as the water we rely on to survive is. Our relationship to all things should be considered Sacred and we should not pick and choose. We need to get back to our roots and learn the real values of things instead of the value of the whitemans greed of gold, silver, land and the vile disrespect of other human beings beliefs. Our earth is being destroyed by those who have hearts of greed and lust for more money, we must pray for them. They are wiping out our natural medicines, our food, our homes and our lives so what am I doing today to add to this or to subtract from this problem or problems?
~ Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld,
Thank you for helping me to understand that everything you have done is considered sacred. I have no right to say which is and which is not because you are the only one that can make that call. I am just a human being striving to do your will and not mine.Please help me to continue my walk.
Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 27

“…you have to believe it first. Not wait until you see it first, then touch it, then believe it…You have to say it from the heart.”
–Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA

We are designed to function from faith. First we pray. Then we use our imagination to create a vision or picture in our mind. We surround this mental picture with our emotions or feelings. These feelings are available when we ask or say it from the heart. The combination of the mental picture and asking from the heart to create the emotions will cause us to believe it. Then we just need to wait. We need to believe as though it is already done.

Great Spirit, remove from me any doubt that comes up today.

<:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:><:>

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When we would like something to come into our lives we must believe in it so it can happen. If it doesn’t then it was not meant to be. Many times we get so anxious about something and when it does not come forth we feel let down.This is our great expectations of people, places and things. We have no real control over anything but we can somewhat control our own self if we allow Creator to walk with us. Then we can believe, but we learn to not get our hopes too high about anything. Acceptance is a new beginning for us.

~ Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please help me to realize I have no control over people, places or things. Help me to better understand my own self and to learn acceptance. Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS

“In our modern world today, we may seem like drowning men because of the loss of much of our spiritual tradition.”
–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW

Our spiritual tradition shows us the way to live in harmony, balance and respect. The tradition taught us how to behave and how to conduct ourselves. The spiritual way taught us to pray and to purify ourselves. Handed down from generation to generation were the teachings about a way of life. Our relationship to Mother Earth and to each other was very clear. The Modern World does not relate to spirituality but to materialism. If we do not allow spirituality to guide our lives, we will be lost, unhappy and without direction. We are spiritual beings trying to be human, not human beings trying to be spiritual. It is said, Know thyself.

Grandfather, lead me to spirituality.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
If we do not give ourselves to Creator daily we keep from growing spiritually. Offering tobacco ties and doing a smudge of tobacco, sweet grass,cedar or sage aides in this way of Sacred passage so we can learn and then give it to the next generation.”We pass it on”. It also helps us with our prayers and our daily living.
Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, My days seem very filled when I gift you Creator and speak with you and I know the days I do not speak to you seem so empty. Thank you for helping me to realize I need to hold you in my life.
Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

Elder’s Meditation of the Day March 25

ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS

“Come forward and join hands with us in this great work for the Creator.”
–Traditional Circle of Elders, NORTHERN CHEYENNE

The Elders have spent years learning to pray and communicate with the Great Spirit. Their job is to pass this knowledge to the younger people. The Elders have told us we are now in a great time of Healing. The Creator is guiding the younger people to help them figure this out. We must get involved and participate. We should pray and see what it is the Great Spirit wants us to do. We need to sacrifice our time and do what is our mission –to help the people and be of maximum use to the Creator. Every person is needed to accomplish this great Healing.

Creator, whisper what you want me to do.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Our life does not end when we stop living here. We go on to a different place so we need to make sure we are prepared. We learn this by praying and continually giving of ourselves to Creator. In a day we must do the best we possibly can to fulfill our journey. We must be out of self and always helping others. This will teach us that many are worse off than we are and their life stories are full of many hardships. In turn this makes our lives look somewhat easier to deal with and “This makes us grow in spiritual ways”.

~ Arthur Medicine Eagle-Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator,Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please guide me in all that I do and I ask that it all be done for you Creator. Help me to find the peace of mind I have been seeking by helping others.

Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

Woman walkin in faith aka Keeper of the Birds aka Roni aka Veronica aka many names that others and the church can answer about.

face and that is oxygen tubing

3 24 2014

Today, now ask if it is me I took oxygen off and phone pic taken. Then showed how it really is. Herb W. can verify the face or any of the Grants and so can many others. and this below….many, many can verify. Sid G. put hair on the buffalo head to help me call into being justice with mercy for all involved in my son’s death. Many can verify this, that are on my face book but most have gone to private groups like fobw chatters and WhiteBison.org So I would appreciate all y’all steppin up. Many of you are stating things you know to be untrue of me. what the hey?

Last time I checked, this morning …I did NOT pray to a single one of you. I walk it, not talk it. end of this messed up day. Ready to toss cell and laptop and let all y’all sink as you have done to me. My question is this WHY DO I HAVE TO TOW EVERY LINE FOR EVERYONE but all yall can trash me, lie to me and about me, steal from me then label me for helping you and putting up with that? you don’t need answer me, It will be Creator asking you in your shoes. You see mine? Claim the ones you gifted me. step right up. read the other articles The shoes and for the shoes….

This was the first step of how I learned of my son. To me, I never thought it was my son. Not then.

Shoes of a journey….

shoes2
The shoes of a journey coast to coast as shown above. Every pair have been gifted to me in new condition. I was asked last Thursday if I had ever been spoiled. I guess this counts.
Why shoes?
If your wondering, once or twice, I was spoiled…one Christmas age 5 or so, but what I remember is how I felt when my birth mother made me take them back to the neighbor…In the gifts was a pair of red paten leather shoes I had so wanted.
Another summer when I was in Reno, Nevada I went to a ranch and was spoiled and for first time I remembered in my life was treated like I could be the child, Not the responsible adult.
So I left Western NC with only a couple of these pairs…since then along the journey many others stepped up and gifted me the other pairs. The hiking boots were gifted to me by Herb W. when I stated keeping the fire for the lodges. Amy Grant took me to a Caleb’s store and bought me some wool socks (since I am always cold) and a few other items. I have circles across the nation and even out of it. That has been the spoiling in my life. Anyone want to speak up and tell where the other shoes came from and own up to the gifting of them? The moccasins were given to me by the elders from South Dakota and Cherokee to make this journey in 2006…they need new soles and new leather. Is there a cobbler in Reno? The Shoes go with prior posting “for the shoes”. I have shoes now to tell a story…..Teacher walk the Hardest Roads.
