Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“But one should pray in one’s heart during a sacred ceremony; this is the purpose of the ceremony, to purify the participants both inside and outside.”
–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW
How do you know if you are praying from your heart or from your head? Pray from your head and you will feel nothing; pray from your heart and you will feel feelings. You may feel sorrow, you may feel joy, you may want to cry, depending on what you are praying for. During the ceremony, the cleansing will take place. The Medicine Wheel teaches the four directions of inner power: emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. The prayer controls the emotional, mental and physical. When we ask for purification of our feelings, our mental mind and our physical body, the spiritual direction causes the cleansing to happen.
Great Spirit, create in me a clean heart.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
We should always pray from the heart no matter what. But if we cannot then maybe we need to look at what is wrong inside and outside of our self. We should not pray prayers written from a book or someone elses, We should pray our own because then we are telling Creator we mean what we are speaking exactly from our own hearts.

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please show me direction how to pray and give my heart to you. My life seems empty when I try and do things on my own and not include you Creator. I apologize for this and ask that you re teach my thinking if need be. Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

It is time to report the GOOD NEWS to offset some of the negativity we are daily being bombarded with. Join me in praying till Sunday about this. This will take a lot of others news etc. to do.
