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.

Kelly Fraser, Spirit Bird. Rest in Power, baby girl.

Wisdom and Folly: Hawk & Crow Medicine for the 144,000

There has been much discussion about who and what the 144,000 are, and many people who are new to the Spiritual Community mistakenly believe that this initial calling is an appointment which confers immediate status.

But, this is not possible here on this planet where we all arrive as fallen angels and must return to our Selves only through spiritual practice, following our Elders’ wisdom, staying close to the child who lives in our heart, and walking softly with our people.

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.

Giving Thanks for the Land and the People: Gratitude in The Land of the Dish With One Spoon

As a woman of the Oklahoma Cherokee Nation, it is a great privilege to make my home here in the place called Tkaranto (Toronto), known by our Aanishnaabeg relatives and hosts as “The Land of the Dish With One Spoon.”

This particular area on planet earth is known to be sacred, and is designated as a meeting place for the generations to gather from all four Sacred Directions to begin building the New Earth, in accordance with the prophecies of the 8th Fire.

Beautiful women’s healing art by Chief Lady Bird

In accordance with the beautiful tradition of Acknowledging the Land and our Aanishnaabeg relatives from all nations, tribes, and clans:

We give thanks to the Great Spirit who has brought us together in this time and place.

We give thanks to our Mother Earth who provides everything we need to live the biimaasiiwin (good life) during our visit with her.

We give thanks to the Ancestors of the Nations who are sharing their homeland with us, and offering us the teachings and wisdom of this place and her people.

We give thanks to the Grandmothers and Grandfathers – the Elders of all Nations who give us their wisdom and love.

We give thanks to the great people of the Mississaguas of The Credit First Nation, upon whose land we are camping – and who are gracious and generous hosts. Chi Miigwetch.

We give thanks for the Medicine Men and Medicine Women who continue to share their powerful lessons, their medicine, and their vision for the #8thGeneration and beyond.

We give thanks for the people of the 5th, 6th, and 7th Generations who are leading the young ones into the creation of the New Earth.

And, we especially give thanks for this 8th Generation – these young ones who are arriving filled with the seeds of stars and wisdom of the Ancients. We ask the protection of the Great Spirit over these children and youth, and ask that our steps be guided in helping them grow to recognize and use their mighty gifts and talents in service to humanity. A’ho.

There are increasing resources to help people understand and begin to practice Land Acknowledgment Ceremonies.

The University of Toronto has a great article with ideas on conducting ceremonies here.

Chi Miigwetch for being here with us during this profound transition.

The Sneak Up Dance

An Elder who was visiting while I was working at the #NativeCanadianCenterTO this week told me about the Sneak-Up Dance. I came home and looked it up to learn more. Wow – what an amazing ceremony.

All honour and respect to those boys who grew up to be courageous and powerful warriors who would literally sneak behind the enemy, into the thick of a battle to retrieve a wounded brother. Just incredible faith and devotion. A’ho. 🙏🦅💫

Cherokee History: Trail of Tears

It’s a little known TRUTH that all of the #Indigenous people and our lands east of the Mississippi in the US were SOLD OUT by a group of our own people, which led to the forced eviction known as the Trail of Tears in which more than 30% of our family members died. Thousands of deaths.

These traitors, known as the “Treaty Party,” exchanged all the lands east of the Mississippi with US agents for money and settler tools. Their greed and hunger for power proved to be deadly to our people; and these criminals were put to death upon our peoples’ arrival to Indian Territory.

View From 40K Feet ∞ A Big Slice O’ Momma’s Best π

This morning, as I was sitting with my guides and planning my day, they said: “Hey Girl – did you know today is Pi Day? Do you have ANY IDEA what that means???”

Since the day of my arrival on this planet, my motto has been, “But, what does it mean?” So, naturally I launched into high-gear research junkie mode.

Thanks to the Science and Math Heroes in our lives, most of us know March 14 is the day we celebrate the number 3.14 – known as Pi (Thanks, y’all).  But many of us (who aren’t actual ROCKET SCIENTISTS like Jesse, my homey from The Ville), don’t know a whole lot about the multi-facted miracle of Pi.

The folks at Pi Day dot Org have gathered up the Science & Math basics -> Here’s a starting point for your education about π and Pi Day.

But, Pi goes well beyond the realm of Science and Math into virtually every aspect of our lives here on Planet Earth – from perfect symmetry in the Created World, to powerful Metaphysical Truths and Universal Laws.

Although it’s still a bit hard to see through the remaining density of Gaia’s 3D state (which is still recovering from the imbalance caused by too much patriarchal power over the past few thousand years), there is increasingly abundant evidence showing 3.14 to be a number of the Divine Feminine. The Archetypal Mother. The Great Goddess.

MothersOfTheWorldWe passed through the Crux of the 7th Fire and 7th Trumpet Prophecies on 3.11 (calendar opposite of 9.11); and, the evidence of the Great Mother’s return is now impossible to ignore.

Today’s events (3.14.18) are really quite something. There is profound and divine synchronicity in the relationship between Pi and the anniversary dates of some of humanity’s greatest minds: Galileo, Einstein, Hawking (Rest well, our friend), the numerology, sacred geometry, and mathematical significance of the number 3.14.

And – Holy OM (!) – the relationship between the Divine Feminine and the CIRCLE is ubiquitous in humanity’s collective understanding of the Sacred.  There is a TON of information about Pi and I could just go on and on forever, but instead of a big blathery post filled with MY words, I’ve just decided to give you. . .

Pi Day Presents!PieDay

I am sharing some links (in no particular order) to sites/stories that I feel are good teachers and supporters to us as we return the essence of the Great Mother to our planet. This re-balancing is necessary to restore our planet, our communities, and our Selves to balance.


PICropCircleJweel Blog: “Symbols & Their Meaning: The Number Pi” ∞ This is a great article from a blog produced by a New Earth design group. Jweel explores the meaning of Pi in its many different facets – from mathematics and science to the Scriptures, teachings, and beliefs of all Spiritual traditions.


Blog Seattle: “The Pie Goddess in Enumclaw” ∞ While exploring the relationship between Pie and PIE (yum), I discovered a review about this little place called The Pie Goddess in Enumclaw, WA.

Enumclaw is roughly translated to “place of thunder” in the language of the Salish people who lived there before European settlers arrived. At this very moment in history, the Salish people are joined in British Columbia with Water Protectors from around the world in solidarity against the Justin Trudeau government’s Kinder-Morgan pipeline. 

GrandmasPieCrustIf you can’t get to Enumclaw, WA to visit the Pie Goddess, Here is a video from the “Hands That Cook” YouTube Channel to teach you how to make pie crust the way Grandma used to make it.

Beyond Grandma’s heavenly pie-crust, there is a long relationship between the Divine Feminine and round pastry. From Greek and Roman Myth, we learn about Goddesses of Grain, Demeter and Ceres.

The remains of an ancient Roman bread pie from Pompeii, carbonized in the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE, featured in Stuart Dean’s article, “Why Is Pizza Round? The Black Goddess of Rome,” in

Stuart Dean explores the deep symbolic expressions of the Great Goddess that we make when doing something as commonplace as making a pizza:

It is particularly significant that the pizza is made with or from all four elements.  Water, for example, is in the bread and (from milk) in the cheese.  Fire bakes the bread and smokes the cheese.  Earth produces the grain from which the bread is made and the herbs that are mixed into the spread.  Air functions in a variety of ways, most directly in activating the fire.  Thus, consistent with the world view Moretum can be associated with, the pizza does not merely represent, but actually is constituted by the elements that encircle and hence embody the Goddess.


3 + 14 + 18 = 8

Today’s date is a Number 8 in numerology. According to Master Numerologist, Hanz Decoz, “Eight is the great Karmic equalizer, a force that just as easily creates as it destroys. When the 8 comes knocking, you can be assured that you will reap what you’ve sown….The 8 balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic.” Read more about this year’s Pi numerology here.

Astrologer and numerologist Suzanne Wagner offers comfort to people who may be feeling blocked and uncomfortable today:

” Know that you may feel blocked from expressing your needs for companionship or the comforts of relationships this afternoon, perhaps due to your responsibilities or concerns. You might find that expressing your feelings and what you need from others is harder to do at the moment. Know that there is a shift as Mercury, Venus, and Chiron align tomorrow.” Suzanne’s complete blog post is here.

And finally, we hear from Rabbi Max Weiman’s exploration of Pi from the perspective of Kabbalah:

“In math the concept of infinity has evolved and advanced over the years. Our understanding of galaxies and light years has broadened our minds. Yet some fundamental truths like peace, love and harmony still struggle like a clinically depressed turtle to move forward for humanity.”

I’m getting this out much later than intended because wow (!) has Lady Karma been busy at my house today. I hope you all had a wonderful Pi Day, 2018. And looking forward to seeing where we are next year at this time.

Thank you for reading,

QAnon & President Donald Trump

Most of the folks in my FB universe are amazing and I love them all so much. We fought for Bernie together for some very intense months (years) – and it was through Bernie’s campaign that most of us had our awakening.

But, like any family, we have disagreements about which way the narrative is going to go. I, like many of my progressive researcher/writer/communicators friends, am moving in a direction to support President Trump.

Researchers who have been following the QAnon Intelligence posts closely for the past year and a half believe this material is being fed to the grassroots via high-placed intel agents who are working with Donald Trump and his Military advisers. Here is a direct link to the QAnon material that is being updated in real time as new material is posted.

I have been following the #QAnon Intelligence messages since July, 2016 when they first started reporting the massive corruption in the Democratic party, and the well-documented truth of a global elite who have been trafficking drugs, weapons, and human beings around the world, then using fraudulent “charities” to launder the money.

Let’s not even go down the path of #Pizzagate — which is real, I am very sad to report. Anyone who has seen the horrific images of very small children being intimately cuddled by grown men who aren’t their fathers and the shocking and disturbing pedophilia art collections of everyone involved with James Alefantis, (including the Clintons’ closest political and personal advisers, the Podesta brothers) has no doubt that #PizzaGateIsReal. Only those who are too fearful of this terrible truth about these criminals who were running our government refuse to believe.

This image and many others (much more horrific and shocking) have been removed from James Alefantis’ (owner of Comet Ping Pong Pizza) Instagram account.
James Alefantis, who the mainstream media claims is simply a pizza parlor owner who was unfairly attacked by “conspiracy theorists” is a close associate of the Podesta brothers and the Clintons. He had total access to the White House and spent New Year’s eve with the Obamas.

Many of us support the President in his fight to remove these massively evil and insane people from their positions of power over our government and country.

That doesn’t mean we blindly worship and believe the man on every issue. I have huge problems with some of his environmental policies, but am pleased he is upholding the ban on Ivory.

I am pleased that he issued an Executive Order that directly targets individuals funding and creating most of the wars and chaos in the world today.

And, I am very, very pleased that President Trump is leading the battle to recover America’s free and fair press.

The state of our nations (the world’s) Fourth Estate (journalism) has deteriorated to the point of tragedy. Trump is leading the charge against the media billionaires who gained total control of our country’s media through Bill Clinton’s 1996 Telecommunications Act.

If you are paying attention, you will see a connection between nearly every failing and horrific aspect of our society, and Bill Clinton’s presidency.  NAFTA, private prisons, welfare “reform,” the Telecommunications Act… It is clear that he and Hillary are part of a larger operation to destroy and plunder our country and enslave as many people as possible.

But, tho’ I’m pleased with Trump’s assault on the propagandists who work for this same machine as the Clinton crime family, we will need to wait and see how far he goes. Is his plan to restore our Freedom of the Press with all the rights and responsibilities that it entails, or is he simply trying to take control for himself? Time will tell us the answer.

That said, there are also many of us Berners who will continue to focus on our progressive issues like World Peace, clean food and water, healthcare and REAL education (not indoctrination) as human rights.


I love my Democratic Socialist, Progressive and Green friends, because they keep us from falling into hero worship mode about Donald Trump. That’s how Obama got away with so much.

It is the sacred mission of good citizens and good journalists to keep a spirited discussion about the running of our country going. We were lulled into sleep by some incredibly evil forces, and it has taken a revolution of consciousness to wake people up. But, we are awakening and rolling up our sleeves and getting to work.

If you need a refresher, or a first-time introduction to the writings of America’s founding fathers and our Constitution, Barnes and Noble offers a great book at a great price. Even better, you don’t have to order from Amazon.

We, as the global community have some enormous truths to process, and profound decisions to make as we work together to create a new narrative that benefits humanity and protects us from criminals in our government, in our economy, and in our communities.
