When the green hills are covered with talking wires and the wolves no longer sing, what good will the money you paid for our land be then?  …..Chief Seattle

Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature. Unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshiping.

…….hubert reeves 

I number among the fortunate humans to have experienced the deep intimacy of the forests, lakes, streams and oceans. Is it any wonder that our species is blatantly destroying our beautiful gift of nature when they have not truly tasted that gift. How many spend time laying on their backs watching the vastness of the sky, listening to the birds calling, smell the richness of the soil. Too busy. Too busy following thoughts that lie to us telling us that whatever task or activity may be before us is more important than taking the moment to greet the day prayerfully or stop to assist one in need. Peace is already within us we have only to see.

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.’
-Long-Eared Owl

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.

“Just slow down.
Slow down your speech.
Slow down your breathing.
Slow down your walking.
Slow down your eating.
And let this slower, steadier
pace perfume your mind.
Just slow down…”

When your life depends on it…..you get to be very good at meditating. This particular meditation is called ‘seal hole meditation.’

silence is the language of god,
all else is poor translation.

There is a traditional Lakota story. It is told that a beautiful woman appeared and gave the tribes profound teachings. She gave them seven sacred ceremonies to protect Mother Earth and the ceremonial pipe. After imparting the wisdom she transformed into a white buffalo calf. To this day the white buffalo remains a symbol of that mystical appearance of ‘White Buffalo Calf Woman.’

keeper of the dream time

watercolor 5 x 7 4/2020

The Bear is the keeper of the dream time, and stores the teachings of dreams until the dreamer wakes up to them. Many Native American tribes have called this space of inner-knowing the Dream Lodge, where the death of the illusion of physical reality overlays the expansiveness of eternity.

The swan known as Hamsa in Hindu mythology is said to be the vehicle of the goddess Saraswati…..patroness of wisdom, learning music and the arts. Or they may be one and the same. That would make Hamsa the divine swan-maiden.
