Elder’s Meditation of the Day
“To be able to greet the sun with the sounds from all of Nature is a great blessing, and it helps us to remember Who is the real provider of all of our benefits.”
–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW
The Elders say we should pray to the East every morning. Just try it! Get up early in the morning, watch the sun and listen to the morning sounds, the birds, the winds; smell the air, feel the breeze and the warmth of the sun. Your mid will expand and you will experience oneness with the Great Spirit. You’ll realize who is really in charge. You’ll realize an interconnectedness. You’ll realize how much the Creator loves you! Just try it!
Great Spirit, today, let me feel the Earth, the Father Sun and your presence.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Everyday just before the sun comes up all of the birds sing. I often wonder if they are praying and thanking creator for the new day. As Grandpa used to tell me “Watch the animals and they will teach
you”, Maybe this is one of those lessons on making sure to give thanks for what we are about to receive. How can I better my day? “It can be done with a simple Thank you to Creator”.
Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, My life seems so different and full of goodness since you took alcohol and drugs away from me. All the things I was shown as a child are now coming back to me and it is my time to pass it on. Thank you for taking away my living hell. Thank you for allowing me the health to fulfill your wishes. Welálin/ Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin
