This week is a Snake Medicine week in the year of the Great Mother Bear who reminds us that this entire year is a time of introspection and healing. Snake reminds us that winter is a great time to hibernate and focus on regeneration after we have experienced a period of trauma and/or Spiritual growth. We're also talking about Turkey (Gratitude) Buffalo (Stamina, Prayer) Coyote (humor during the time of awakening) and cards from other traditions.
Many Natives whose own families were destroyed by the bioterrorism and cultural genocide the European elite class brought to our land are now supporting and voting for their leftist representatives who have made their intentions very clear: that they used the Natives of Turtle Island to create a model they have used in socialist "revolutions" all over the world, and are now trying to impose on America and Canada.
Grandmother Spider reminds us of the wisdom of our Elders and shows us the path to bring the spark of light back into our lives after failure and she she teaches us how to disentangle ourselves from the old ways and begin to spin and weave a new way of being.
Ceremony helps us learn the power of focusing on our own healing before anything else, for if our cups are not full, then we will have nothing to share with others.

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.
As we ascend ever higher on our healing path, the lessons become deeper and more intimate as we walk toward the darkest and most tender part of our soul wounds.
We cannot come together to build a New Earth as long as people who enjoy status only by virtue of a government card are attacking those who are unrecognized by the colonizers.This is the perpetration and continuation of colonialism by Native people against their own and it drives people away. We cannot have people complaining that Native populations are dwindling on one hand while driving away their relatives with arbitrary blood quantum and status demands on the other.
It's good to take a break from the cares and responsibilities of the world - especially at this crazy time. Time to detach from the war (and make no mistake, we're very much at war with powerful forces of darkness) . . . And reconnect with the Great Spirit.
