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.
This week is a Bear Medicine week in the year of the great mother bear. This time is about balancing the masculine with the feminine, so Bear is sitting with the Grandfathers in their home in the Northwest this week.
Joining this cast of characters are: Alligator (Kek) Turkey Badger Salmon . . . along with Medicine Cards from a few other traditions.
It is so important during these times that we know the wisdom and teachings of our Ancestors, for even though we have arrived with much clearer knowledge of our mission than many others, we are dependent on the Elders of all Nations to show us the pathways our people have walked, and to teach us the wisdom and medicine – the Old Ways – to help us clean up and restore our Mother Earth and our communities.
In the Bird Clan, Eagle is the keeper of the Northern Door of the Medicine Wheel - the White House which represents Spirit. And this is where the Grandfathers live. When we enter into prayer every day, it helps us remember our relatives in all four directions - beginning with those in the North who are suffering from food insecurity and pollution of our natural water supply.
Truth is the only antidote for the ailments of the world, for our families and for each of us as individuals, and Eagle is the totem of truth. The sacred bird of the Cherokee and other Indigenous nations – and people around the world – who recognize the powerful, ancient role of Eagle as the messenger of the Great Spirit.
This is the medicine of stamina, courage and strength that we need when we reach a new level of consciousness because at those times we are just beginning the process of integrating our new perception into the way we organize and live our day to day lives.
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.
We've hit the bottom of the V, the place of transformation for those who continue to cling to the old matrix illusion. People are slowly awakening thanks to the internet - the tool they had originally intended to use to degrade and enslave us.
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.
