Indigenous people believe that the owl has very soft and gentle ways, similar to the softness of an owl’s feather, and these ways were taught to them in the healing ways. Therefore, whenever owl feathers were worn by an individual, it often meant that they were a medicine person with healing abilities.

‘It is time to walk away. Something new is manifesting and cannot appear until you release what you are holding onto so fiercely.’

Go where the Mother’s blanket 

heals you, where she gives you

new dreams…if you learn to live

in these places, you will live through 

these times…this is the time to 

relearn how to live with the Earth.

it is a time to honor Spirit, to listen

to the Mother, to reawaken our

emotional awareness so we can

communicate with the higher octaves of

reality, upon this sacred egg we call

…..Earth.

tatanka

Tatanka (buffalo) was held in high regard by the Lakota Sioux……. also called ‘The People.’ Tatanka was respected as a symbol of the divine……. root of abundance and manifestation.

 

The People were starving because there was no game. Two young men went out to look for food for their tribe in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Along the way, a beautiful young woman dressed in white appeared to them, saying, “Return to your people and tell them I am coming.” When she presented herself to the Lakota People with the sacred pipe which showed how all things were connected, she taught them the mysteries of the earth. She taught the People seven sacred ways to pray. These prayers are ceremonies to restore health to the body, mind and spirit, and pray for the well-being of all the People. Another wisdom which she imparted with great imperative was that the woman is like the central fire in the Teepee which imparts well-being and that she must be respected if they would prosper. 

Then, before leaving, she rolled upon the earth four times, changing color each time, turning into a white buffalo calf before she disappeared. As she left, great herds of buffalo surrounded the camps. After that day the Lakota honored their pipe and buffalo were plentiful.
