Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“When you go inside that power, there’s no fear. It’s so beautiful!! There’s no fear there. There’s no pain.”
—- Wallace Black Elk, LAKOTA
Imagine you are standing on the edge of a stage. In the center of the stage is a spotlight shining from above. If you stand any place outside the spotlight, in the darkness, you will experience fear. But as soon as you step into the light in the center of the stage, all fear and pain go away. When we stand in the power, fear cannot exist. How do we find this place of power? We pray our way into it. We ask the Creator to take our hand and help us. When we get to that place, we will feel the fear go away.
Great Spirit, hold my hand and guide me today.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Can you remember as a child how you were afraid of the dark? The boogie man and night creatures came out and tortured children if they were not good? The story of the headless horseman and other spooky stories during halloween time. FEAR! People apparently find it amusing to make others fear. Now that you are older you know better and can go into dark places with little fear or none. When you are in sweat lodge darkness are you afraid? Most likely not, Why is this? What causes this change of fear to fear not? It is due to the perception that we are going to a safe place to pray and sit with our Creator and ancestors.

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, Thank you for helping me to overcome fear, Yet I must realize there are quite a few different forms of fear. Please help me to understand and find balance with this.Religions use fear to persuade people into believing. Parents tell their children God is going to punish you for doing that. Fear comes in many ways and people need to realize they the only thing they need to fear most on this earth is their own self. Thank you Grandfather for opening my eyes to a brand new horizon.
