Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“Each creature has a medicine, so there are many medicines. Because they are so close to the Creator, they are to communicate that medicine. Then they bring help and health.”
–Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA
The Elders say everything has a purpose and everything has a will. We should never interfere with purpose or the will of everything. Every plant, creature, animal, insect, human being has a purpose to be here on the Earth. Each has a special medicine to contribute for the good of all things. Each person also has good medicine, a special talent, a special gift. These medicines are to help others or to help make us healthy. What is your special medicine?
Creator, today, help me discover and use my medicine to serve a greater good.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
When the term Medicine Man is used it is like someone scratching their fingernails on a chalk board. There are no Medicine Men, that is a term conjured up by non indian settlers who asked the tribal Spiritual person to help in times of sickness or disaster. Hollywood has used the term very common as if it were a reality. Old Pioneers did not refer to someone as a medicine person until the person was able to perform some kind of healing for family or friends. All people carry medicines good or bad and it depends on how one uses them as to who they really are. This does not make all people medicine men or women as Hollywood would put it oral and written. Some people carry bear medicines, others may carry winged creatures medicines, it makes no difference which one a person carries because Creator has us all where he wants us at the correct time. This is how things work and certainly not on our time.
