Thoughts are things

I have always heard that thoughts are things. You can think good or evil, happy or sad. You can think yourself healthy or sick, and on and on.

Our natural physic abilities have been mostly lost in the modern world.

When Black Elk saw in vision black ribbons around Mother Earth it was today's' asphalt highways. I could go on and on but you get the idea.

In my lessons learned from the spirit world, thought is super powerful. When we grieve for lost love ones their essence is…

Communions With The Thunderbeings

My favorite past time was escaping city life for the peace and solitude of the Earthly Mother. As a wilderness landscape photographer there was nothing I loved more. In the solitude of nature, I feel…

Tatanka

Molly Hatchet

Seven seas seven skies

Lightning strikes and brave men die

Tatanka great, Tatanka small

When darkness comes they kill them all

Tatanka

You take what you want but you don't ask

You're future doesn't lie with things of the past

The search for freedom will never be found

As long as we stand upon this sacred ground

The curse of the curses upon the land

One day Tatanka will make a stand

Take back the…

"Man Walks Among Us"

Marty Robbins

Warm are the winds on the desert

A whirlwind is dancing around

I stop to survey all the beauty that's here

When a shadow moves out 'cross the ground

It's an eagle that circles above me

And he screams to his friends on the hill

"Stay close together, move not a feather

Man walks among us, be still, be still

Man walks among us, be still"

Everything hides, but I see them

I've spotted an old…

Mythology and Crests of the Haida

The mythology of the Haida, like that of other tribes on the central and northern coast, is based on the epic cycle of stories about the Raven and his various exploits. The Raven is truly a trickster who liberates humankind from a clamshell, then in one story sets the universe in order, only to threaten it with chaos in the next. The Raven is the most greedy, mischievous and lecherous creature imaginable, but almost without meaning to, teaches humans the arts of living a good life. Haida…

Harry Chapin's "There Was Only One Choice"

There's a kid out on my corner, hear him strumming like a fool

Shivering in his dungerees, but still he's going to school

His cheeks are made of peach fuzz -- his hopes may be the same

But he's signed up as a soldier out to play the music game

There are fake patches on his jacket -- he's used bleach to fade his jeans

With a brand new stay pressed shirt -- and some creased and wrinkled dreams

His face a blemish garden -- but his eyes are virgin clear

His…

Antelope Blessings

GRAY ANTELOPE

1933-1996

by Pamela Jensen ©1998

On unsteady feet, Gray Antelope, medicine man, walked in the White Mist World, images from the earth world flying past him out of the fog. All manner of things, four-legged, two-legged, winged-ones, swirled and flowed around him. Pictures flashed by him, breaking into pieces and reforming as if he were in the center of a kaleidoscope. A Pronghorn antelope came bounding out of the mist, its sleek body dancing gracefully, its dark…

First Nations Astronomy - seeing the Cree and Ojibway Sky

Atchakosuk are the spirit lights up above. “All people of the Earth have stories of the stars. The First People of North America are no different” — Wilfred Buck, Cree Science Educator. The late storyteller Murdo Scribe told this story of the big dipper: Ochek Atchakosuk are the fisher stars in Cree legends from Northern Manitoba. (The fisher is a small fierce relative of the wolverine.) This legend tells us how summer was brought to the north country. Long ago there was no summer in…

A Prayer By Twyla Nitsch

When Twyla was doing her intensives in the Buffalo, New York area she would have all her students up at dawn greeting the Sun. She beat on her drum while having everyone pray.

Ho Great Mystery.

We awake to another Sun,

Grateful for gifts bestowed

Granted one by one,

Grateful for…

JUNE IS A COMIN' Dana Lyons

The fall is the sunniest time of the year

And the mountains are clear every day

But November it brings home the clouds and the rain once again

December is many warm nights by the fire

Reading stories and sipping some beer

With the days growing longer, the end of the winter…

Dancing Cane

The years have come to get us

turn us gray and old.

Sitting on the sofa as our feet grow cold,

but if life is for the living lets sip some more champagne

and honey could you help me find my dancing cane.

Lets play an ancient record, maybe move around the room.

Lets shake this mausoleum full of old heirlooms,

I'm silly from the silence, senseless from the pain-

and honey could you help me find my dancing cane.

As long as were together, in love…
