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.
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?
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).
And for many people, there is great danger at this time of becoming lazy and apathetic. We are seeing the restrictions by powerful entities and feel helpless to do anything about it.

Make no mistake - this is a war. And we are the very bottom of the V. The turning point for our country and ultimately for the freedom of humanity. For, if America falls, the world is lost.
The reason the Spiritual leader and teacher's paths are so difficult is that we cannot truly teach what we don't understand. If we are here to be witnesses to the pain of others and teachers of a better way, then we must live the experience.
One of the greatest mistakes modern humans have made is to believe that the cultural genocide and land/wealth/resource appropriation stopped happening with the end of colonialism against First Nations peoples in Turtle Island and other nations.
Wolf is the one we need to call on after we've had a spectacular crash and burn in life, and have stood up, walked out of it and made the decision to live . . .
If you have hooked into your higher vibrational self and endurance level you will not easily be pulled into the major triggering energies hitting the collective. You will not react in fear or with negative emotions and reactions.
Trauma serves as the doorway where we choose the door (portal) to a new dimension that humans call death or choose the heart-based path of life and continue to walk in goodwill and Chi Miigwetch, consciously making good and positive choices.
