Greetings Dear Brothers and Sisters!
As we were putting together this newsletter, a beautiful prayer came our way that we wish to share with you.
***
Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
And whose breath gives life to everyone, Hear me.

I come to you as one of your many children; I am weak... I am small...I need your wisdom and your strength.

Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunsets.

Make my hands respect the things you have made, and make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice.

Make me wise, so that I may understand what you have taught my people and the lessons you have hidden in each leaf and each rock.

I ask for wisdom and strength; not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able to fight my greatest enemy—myself.

Make me ever ready to come before you with clean hands and a straight eye,so as life fades away as a fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame.
***
This prayer is from the Ojibwe (also Ojibwa), or Chippewa People. They are one of the largest groups of Native Americans and First Nations on the North American continent. Much more can be learned here: http://www.everyculture.com/multi/Le-Pa/Ojibwa.html

Walk you Beauty Dear ones!

Love,

Paul & Neelam
Learning to stand in your own power in a shamanic way is about self-worth; about taking personal power; and it is about healing yourself by connecting with the voice of your own unique wisdom.

Shamanic teachings, meditations, and visualizations open up your ability to use and to strengthen your imagination. You must learn (and trust) that what you imagine is real. This leads us to some Food for Thought:
  • If you were to reach out and touch your personal power, where would it be? Is it within you? In front of you? Beside you? Behind you? How far or near is it? What does it feel like? What does it look like?
  • Who did you last give your personal power to?
  • Did you remember to take it back?
  • Are you holding on to that which belongs to another? If so, why? And for how long?
  • When was the last time you had a conversation with your unique wisdom? What did it tell you? Did you listen?
  • How flexible is your mind? Your heart? Your feet?
  • Do you trust what you imagine?
  • Do you trust what you feel? If no, why not?
  • For you, if something is not tangible, does it not exist?
  • Take a moment and close your eyes and visualize...What did you see? How real was/is it? In what World does it exist?
Song of the Week

In our Foundation workshop, we journey to find a Power Song. This is an example of one. You can feel her spirit soar as she lets loose. Be aware that she gets very vocal and you may want to have your fingers on the volume control, especially if you are in the office :)

Connect to your Guide(s) and request a song. Allow it to burst forth...make the room swell; make the air tremble; make ripples on the land and the sea. Do not be embarrassed or shy, for this is the Song of Spirit and Spirit is not ashamed. 

Sing to the Heavens, Sing to the Earth Mother, Sing to your Soul.

JOI (Journey on It)

In our workshops, we share that as Shamanic Practitioners, we can Journey on pretty much, any subject. Here is a Journey suggestion:

The World of Knowledge

We live in a World of Unlimited Possibilities. We each carry with us our own knowledge, our own Wisdom. Through the Shamanic Journey process, we can connect to the Spirit of this Knowledge and we can expand beyond its borders, delving into the World of Knowledge. The World of Knowledge goes far beyond that which is presently known by man. In general, man is limited by that which is known or discovered. Just how much remains?

Start this Journey looking at the BIG Picture and then allow yourself to go where ever you are lead to. Listen to your Soul and your Guides as you wander through this vast, limitless World.

Tell us what you discover!

 

From the Storyteller

We sat with my father; we spoke of the snows of our past.

“Had I not gone there...life would have turned out so different.”

I closed my eyes and recalled the joys of the days of which we spoke. I returned to my early teen years, and to the mountain and the challenging stride up the ill defined goat trail, walking, again, along the spine of the mountain, my back chilled by the chilled air that whispered from the west.

He brought me back with his words, changing the channel via the remote; “If I could do it, I would turn back the hands of time and not do what I did.”

I watched his hands, “Wisdom is most attainable when we look back from where we've been”.

Slowly, he nodded.

I studied his profile; “Do not regret that which took place. Let it go. Understand the lessons from those experiences. Apply the wisdom of the past to know and to recognize the pitfalls of the present. That is living within ones wisdom.”

He sipped his coffee and turned off the television.
