February 15, 2016 Totem Card of the Day - Orca
So what Truth is it that you are not wanting to face and deal with ni order to move forward on your path? That is what the Orca shares with us today. Although it is true at times we need to be Guardians of our Emotional Self, that does not mean that we allow the stuff we do not want to look at and deal with to become the anchor that is keeping us in the same spot instead of moving ahead. Time to grow up "Buttercup" and face the demons of…Continue
The Butterfly flutters in to our path today and say we are to enjoy the day! Be light and frivolously go about enjoying small pleasures of the day such as a cookie or donut with your coffee that you may not normally have! Or perhaps its an extra moment from your day to touch base with a friend or family member you haven't spoken to in awhile, but whatever it is.... ENJOY IT simply because you can. We so often get caught up in the mundane and routine things of our daily life,…

-Thomas Yellowtail, CROW
My spiritual tradition shows us the way to live in harmony, balance and respect. The tradition taught me how to behave and how to conduct ourselves. The spiritual way taught me to pray and to purify myself. Handed down from generation to generation…Continue

"Tell the people not to cry. Tell them to be happy." John Fire Lame Deer, LAKOTA (told to his son, Archie, as he died)

This is the time we may be filled with new and creative energies and ideas. But it takes special understanding and care to keep that flow…Continue

Totems are hard to explain at times, but what we need to understand is what a totem is before we can comprehend what it means to follow their teachings. Once we understand the concept, it helps us to learn the messages they then have to offer and teach…Continue

If our life is full of obstacles and issues, we are not doing what it is we were meant to do. That is when Creator with the help of the all…
