No Room for Racism on the Sacred Red Road

By Kandace Keithley

Osiyo,

The Ancestors are speaking to us about racism and showing us how the evil ones have used the colour of our skin to divide us.

The Grandmothers and Grandfathers remind us that beneath our many coloured and spotted hides we all share the same belief in the Great Spirit. It is only when we walk the Sacred Red Road of the Ancestors of all Cultures that we realize the connection that will bring us together as Warriors of the Rainbow.

Grandfather Joseph White Eagle: The Sacred Pipe Ceremony

By Joseph White Eagle

Eagle Man begins a pipe ceremony by beseeching the West power, while thinking about the life giving rains and the ever present spirit world.

Next, he beseeches the north power, the source of endurance, strength, truthfulness, and honesty, which are qualities needed to walk down a good path in life.

Then, he will look to the east power. The east is where the sun rises, and the sun brings us knowledge, the essence of spirituality such as meditation practices. Without knowledge, we become ignorant and cause harm to ourselves and others.

The fourth energy is the south power, which brings us bounty, medicine, and growth. Next to be acknowledged is the earth spirit. Eagle Man touches the pipe to the ground, and says, “Mother Earth, I seek to protect you.”

Since Mother Earth depends on the sun’s life giving energy, the pipe is then held up towards the sky.

Lastly, the pipe is held straight up to the Great Spirit, the Great Mystery, the unexplainable source of all life. These words are then spoken:

“Oh Great Spirit, I thank you for the six powers of the universe.”

Unlike many westerners, Eagle Man explains that the person reaching out to the spirit world has no fear: “Most of us are not afraid of the Great Spirit. We don’t fear something that has given us our life.”

Grandfather Joseph White Eagle: New Years Blessings

By Joseph White Eagle

With another year setting in the twilight, and a New year is rising into a new dawning, we will not falter, we will not look back.

For we must be the brightest stars on Mother Earth, we must be the divine winds of change.

Great blessings only await those that have this brilliant light that enlightens the darkness, a sacred fire that rages within our heart, for it will be the sharing of the good medicine within us that will bring the balance back for all life.

For it is weighed by the unseen scales of the universe and it is a spiritual battle we must win, for only we can manifest into reality what is in our hearts.

Happy New year to all that sit in this sacred circle.

Spirit Bird: Kelly Fraser’s Message for Our Youth

By Kandace Keithley – Cherokee Bird Clan Messenger

We are so deeply saddened at the Christmas time walk into the Spirit World that of one of our young bright stars chose to take.

Kelly Fraser, a gifted young Inuit musician was a rising star in the Indigenous music community. Her star was truly rising, but rather than celebration and support, Kelly received a great deal of hatred based in jealousy not only from the internet troll world – but from those she loved, the ones who should have been her support system.

Joseph White Eagle: The Sacred Circle

By Joseph White Eagle

The great Ancestors believe that everything in this physical reality moves and is influenced by the circle.

The universe we live within is the big circle and everything that exists within it mirrors this, for even the cells that come together to make physical life are circular.

For in the center lives the Great Mystery and everything revolves in a circle around this divine being. Continue reading “Joseph White Eagle: The Sacred Circle”

Joseph White Eagle: Hopi Prophecy of the 7th Fire

By Joseph White Eagle

I have been urged by the Great Spirit to share Hopi prophecy.

Hopis’ Ancient Knowledge and Prophecies are warning through many signs, that we have entered a dangerous period in our lives.

Mankind must return to Peaceful ways, and halt the Destruction of Mother Earth, or we are going to destroy ourselves. Continue reading “Joseph White Eagle: Hopi Prophecy of the 7th Fire”

Bison Medicine: Loving the Unlovely

By Kandace Keithley, Bird Clan Messenger

Osiyo Relatives,

It is our honour to bring you this message from the  Ancestors today.

We are living in the time of great prophecy and change for the human family as foretold by our Grandfathers Chief Crazy Horse, Chief Black Elk, and many others. The Cherokee know this as the Time Out of Time – the time when the earth must become quiet in order to correct the path of humanity that had gone astray. This is the time described by the Apostle John in the Biblical Book of Revelation. We know it as the time of the 7th and 8th Fires, and the Great Awakening.

Joseph White Eagle: Hollow Bones

By Grandfather Joseph White Eagle

When you acknowledge the power that is greater than you in your daily life, than you become open and hollow bones for this divine power.

For surely acknowledgement will bring divine intervention and the welcoming of energy that does not exist on this physical plane.

Prayers, offerings of gratefulness and thanks, sharing of love, and going into ceremony is the act of this acknowledgement.  Continue reading “Joseph White Eagle: Hollow Bones”

sQuirrel Medicine: Resurrecting the Spirit Child

By Kandace Keithley, Bird Clan Messenger

Osiyo relatives,

It is our honour to bring you this teaching from our Thunderbird relatives about some very powerful medicine that will help you on your path.

Squirrel’s Medicine is the stuff of Joy of reconnecting us with the Spirit Child that lives inside us all. Jesus taught that unless we become like little Children, we cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

What that literally means is taking our healing journey seriously in an effort to return to that lost and little child, re-parent him or her, and set them free to live through our grown-up bodies. Continue reading “sQuirrel Medicine: Resurrecting the Spirit Child”
