The Truth About Your Mid-Life Crisis: Eagle Medicine or a Fall From Grace

By Kandace Keithley

For most of us, the middle of our lives brings a time of intense pressure as we move into the autumn of our path around the Sacred Hoop. We feel keenly the emptiness of our nests as children grow up and find their own ways. We have to make the decision to navigate the new relationship with our partner as the kids aren’t there anymore to divert us from one another. Sometimes we find what remains – what our partner has become; and sometimes we realize that it’s time for us to walk apart and love one another from afar.

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.

Future Proves Past: New Years Greetings for the Family of Light – 144,000

By Kandace Keithley – Cherokee Bird Clan Messenger

Osiyo family!

It is a great honour to be here with you and working with such a great team of messengers, healers, teachers, musicians, artists, community leaders – and everyone in our FANTASTIC GROUND CREW!

Folks think the spiritual gift of prophecy is all “airy fairy” (and this is true to some degree, lmao), but throughout human history the great prophets of all people have endured very harsh suffering of their people, their families, and to themselves. You wouldn’t BELIEVE what some of those Old Testament guys had to go through! Folks with this gift of vision use their challenges to rise spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically in order to spin those experiences into medicine in service to humanity.

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”

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.
