Change always begins with a change of our OWN narrative, and as we who have been through huge and transformational change understand - it's a slog. And we definitely need strong helpers like Horse to get us through. People on the spiritual path understand the great truth about Horse - balance is always necessary to move through turmoil in a sane and healthy way. This week, Horse is showing us how the strong perceptions of Hawk, combined with the great truths of Eagle (especially now while we're in the time of Crow and Coyote) and the organization of Squirrel (who is sitting in the west with the Grandmothers) will give us the balance we need for times such as these.
Owl is the keeper of the Western Gate of consciousness. The place where we sit with the Grandmothers, remember the old ways of women's intuition, the medicines of our Ancestors and reconnect with the Divine through our hearts. This ancient Grandmother, known as the Night Eagle in some Native cultures, is either considered a scary … Continue reading Owl Medicine – Are you Awake? Or just “Woke?”
By Kandace Keithley Raven is a messenger of the void who comes to give us courage and vision as we walk through the depths of the most dark truths facing humanity at this time.

The truth is out like a genie out of its magic lamp. The people know who "17" is and are coming together from all faith traditions to protect our children. Our Children are our future. Welcome to the 8th Fire Great Awakening.
Wolf takes us to the land of Exile where we meet the two wolves in the depths of our soul. The White wolf of light and the Black wolf of the darkness. Spirit and intuition join together in a mighty dance to determine which perceptions, belief, and traditions we will choose?
Part of taking care of God's creatures is providing for the birds and animals in cities where their natural habitats have been destroyed by human settlement. Goose asks for people to share only healthy food with the creatures. Do some research and make sure that what you're giving them won't make them sick. Bread is TERRIBLE for birds!
This week is a Bear Medicine week in the year of the great mother bear. This time is about balancing the masculine with the feminine, so Bear is sitting with the Grandfathers in their home in the Northwest this week.
Joining this cast of characters are: Alligator (Kek) Turkey Badger Salmon . . . along with Medicine Cards from a few other traditions.
This week, Elk (stamina, gentleness, silence) is leading us from the Northern place of the Grandfathers. Joining him this week are Raven (transformation), Squirrel (organization, focus), Owl (wisdom, strategy). These four are supported by the energy of the Great Mother Bear, (healing, protection) Hawk (truth, perception) and Wolf (leadership, solitude, humility).
We are blessed with this gift of time and given many choices throughout each day. Start the day in prayer and connecting with the Great Spirit and the Ancestors – and they will help you through each day with love and kindness for yourself and for others. When we start our day connected to God, we’re better able to think right thoughts. And it is our thoughts and perceptions that change the world.
In the Bird Clan, Eagle is the keeper of the Northern Door of the Medicine Wheel - the White House which represents Spirit. And this is where the Grandfathers live. When we enter into prayer every day, it helps us remember our relatives in all four directions - beginning with those in the North who are suffering from food insecurity and pollution of our natural water supply.
