by awakening the native american teachings, you come to the realization that the earth is not something simply that you build upon and take for granted. it is a living entity. it has consciousness.

We cannot simply think of our survival; each new generation is responsible to ensure the survival of the seventh generation. The prophecy given to us, tells us that what we do today will affect the seventh generation and because of this we must bear in mind our responsibility to them today and always.

    the Peacemaker taught us about the seven generations. he said, when you sit in council for the welfare of the people, you must not think of yourself or of your family, not even of your generation. he said, make your decisions on behalf of the seven generations coming, so that they may enjoy what you have today.

to live by this principle, one would ask, prior to any undertaking, how it will affect the land, water, air, animals, birds, plants and the future for our children seven generations into the future?

how does it apply to you?

think about where you build a house, what kind of car you drive.

do you throw out or recycle?

what kind of impact are you making on the earth?

what kind of message are you giving your children? Teach them by example.

The shorter days that winter provide should be used as an opportunity to get more rest, sleep and dreams. Personal growth requires a lot of quiet time and solitude.  Solitude is always an interesting period in our lives. It can be a time of independence, loneliness or a time of reflection and growth – the choice is ours. Winter is the time to go within.

Awareness likes to be focused when it is pleased – that’s why two people in love can’t tear their eyes off each other. They drink each other in; there’s no effort involved. So apply your focus to the things that charm you. Put your energy on things you love but also on things that most easily hold your attention and make you feel energized and vital.

You relax into a receptive state.
You are quiet inside.
The experience is allowed to sink in.
You are filled with a subtle feeling of curiosity, pleasure, wonder, or love.
You appreciate this feeling and allow it to linger.
In short, this is one of the gentlest skills in awareness, and one of the most pleasing.Screen shot 2013-05-20 at 4.49.09 PM

By observing the changes that take place during the winter season, maybe we can attune ourselves to a healthier winter. Leaves have fallen off the trees providing nutrients for the soil, plants pull their sap and nutrients back into their roots, days are shorter, life slows down, some animals hibernate, nature withdraws into itself, the earth rests.Screen shot 2013-05-20 at 4.49.09 PM

a flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.

 

 

 

 

 

someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.


 

 

rose quartz is the corner-stone for the heart chakra. its energy is the essential to the self fulfillment and inner peace. the soft soothing pink of the rose quartz comforts and heals any wounds the heart has accumulated. it is here to help those who have not yet been given love to feel that love that resides within. being an important member of the quartz family, rose quartz  inherits dynamic intensity and healing power.

 

MAUDE: I should like to change into a sunflower most of all. They’re so tall and simple. What flower would you like to be?
HAROLD: I don’t know. One of these, maybe.
MAUDE: Why do you say that?
HAROLD: Because they’re all alike.
MAUDE: Oooh, but they’re *not*. Look. See, some are smaller, some are fatter, some grow to the left, some to the right, some even have lost some petals. All *kinds* of observable differences. You see, Harold, I feel that much of the world’s sorrow comes from people who are *this*,
[she points to a daisy]
MAUDE: yet allow themselves be treated as *that*.
[she gestures to a field of daisies]

NOW, FOCUS ON YOUR HEART BEATING.
