I have no personal recollections of war in this lifetime, but a memory of a long ago time stands clear in my mind.

The memory is of sitting in a creaky old rocking chair by the window of a little log shack in the bush. I have a baby at my breast, three little ones play on the braided rug at my feet. I wait. I wait, in hope that the man I love will soon return.
Some of the men have come home, many of them scarred or crippled, most of them broken by the things they’ve seen, what they have done. Many women have been left alone to survive in this wilderness. Some will return to family in the East, some will stay and fight to keep what they’ve worked so hard to build.
I have skills. As a healer and midwife, I am needed, but can I
survive in this white man’s world without my husband? I know that I can return to my People.

The memory ends there, but the feelings are clear in my mind. Hope, loneliness, desperation and continual waiting. Feelings
that I sure have been shared by every woman from the beginning of
time, who has sat by a window, waiting for her man to return from war.

May the time soon come when this Waiting is over for good.

MAY WE ALL WALK IN PEACE.

RAVEN’S SONG

The betrayal had been complete
It tore their home apart,
He mourned in silent misery
She drowned in raging despair.
Until one day a friend came by,
To Whitebird they did go,
And the healing began.

Willow Branch was always there
Warm arms and heart prepared
To give support and courage
To those so badly scarred
A Medicine Wheel was built with love
The family worked as one.
A healing in itself.

Soft Heather told a story
Of faith and ways of old
Stories of Creator,
Earth Mother’s strong embrace.
Lessons learned long ago
Returned with strength and truth
The healing continued.

A Feather of Red next appeared
With Wolf…….a Magic pair
And so the layers slowly peeled
Away, with Whitebird’s care.
The family’s home has been rebuilt
Laughter and Love to share
There’s healing everywhere.

Redberry came to learn and teach
A Circle has been formed
Raven Wing was born.
A Silver Cloud came floating by
And brought along a Crow,
A Rainbow and some others
Together they all grow.

The Whitebird became an Eagle
Now Raven sings her Song
Each day is better than the last
As Knowledge is reborn
Strength and Power fill the night
As souls relight the fire
And Healing is reborn.

Thank’s to all who helped me home,
May you all walk in peace.

Love you………..Raven Song

TUNNELS

A few mornings ago, on facebook, there was talk of tunnels and eventually finding the light at the end of one. That tunnel and I are old acquantances, we’ve spent alot of time together over the years. I’ve dug my way out several times. Sometimes though, another shovelful was thrown in just as the light became visable, so I had to work harder.
You would think I’d figure it out!
I once read something about Karmic lessons, I even wrote it down. It’s from a book called The Mists Of Avalon, by Marion Zimmer Bradley, and it says:
“If you would have the message of the Gods to direct your life,look for that which repeats again, and again; for this is the message given you by the Gods, the Karmic lesson for this incarnation. It comes again and again until you have made it part of your soul and enduring spirit.”
Not long ago, as I was AGAIN beginning to see the light,someone dumped a whole semi-load down the hole. For awhile, I thought I would just die, but thanks to some very dear friends and family, I didn’t.
What’s more, I woke up to the fact that once AGAIN, I’d been so busy being what or who everyone else in my life wanted or needed me to be, and ME, was also down that perverbial hole. No light in sight.
Now, I’m still in the tunnel with alot of digging to do, still no light in sight but my faith in Creator gives me the tenacity and strength to keep on digging.
The surprising thing about all this, is through this experience, I found ME……AGAIN. My once dormant spirituality is alive and well, I’m using my gifts, developing those I didn’t realize I had, remembered how loving and supportive my family is, found a wonderful spiritual family, and realize once AGAIN…. that money is supposed to help on our path…NOT be the path.
My most important lesson……Once the light within you is shining bright, the tunnel isn’t nearly as dark.
The Karmic lesson…….STAY OUT OF TUNNELS……..

My heart was empty. What had I done? They said it would be for the good, that my children would learn the white man’s ways in that school. That they would be better able to live in the world as it is now. I believed these words, but now the emptiness in our home tells me that maybe they lied.

My husband sits, a man broken in spirit. His mind and his heart shaken loose by the knowing that our life will never be the same. The quiet is so loud. We look at each other in pain as we face the shame of having let this happen.

Who will remember the ways of the People?

Who will honor our Mother Earth?

Who will tell the stories of our Ancestors?

Who will gather the Medicine or thank Creator for all that we have?

The children return for holidays, but they speak a different language.

What will happen to ours?

Is it all to be forgotten?

Their eyes are haunted, what damage is being done to their souls?

Creator says there will come a time when the Spirit of the People will return. That the traditions and ways will be remembred and brought back to life.

The Time is NOW. The Spirit is in You. Honor it.

REMEMBER………………………..LIVE

WALKING SOFTLY

When this life is over,
What will I have done?
Walked this pathway softly,
Or always on the run?
Yesterday is over,
Lessons harshly learned.
Tomorrow has not risen,
Not really my concern.
Today I look around me,
At family and friends,
And think,” How shall they see me,
What message will I send?”
I’ll softly tread upon the Earth’
No broken hearts to mend.
Just love in every moment,
From now until the end.

The Knowledge surrounds you. It is in the ground you walk on, in the trees that give you shade. It abounds in the plants you see in every direction. Dig deep within, the answers are there…….FEEL…..

Consider the birds, watch their flight, that you may fly. Pay attention to the animals. how and what they eat, how they care for their young, how they survive the elements……..SEE…….

Study the skies, Sun, Moon, Stars, Clouds, for they have much to teach. Listen to the Stones, they carry the story of the world……..
REMEMBER…….

Shut your eyes and listen to the songs of the wind. Each direction has it’s own tales and lessons……….HEAR………

BE ALERT, BE AWARE……for it is all around you…….LEARN……

All Nature works together. It is there for all who would understand.

Care Must Be Taken………….Gratitude Given………..

……..PRAY……..

ME

Silently I sit
Trying to find the words
The source is so deep
It’s hard to understand
Why it’s taken so long to explode
I’m so strong,
I’ve led us all to suppose
And all because
I never could expose
The weakness I have felt
Or the rage I’ve had buried
So deep I did not even realize
I owned it.
The lies I’ve told myself
So no one else would know
That underneith it all is
A little girl who’s innocence
Was stolen and never had the chance
To just play and be a child
But was given the role of Woman
Long before her time.
And has carried that facade
Till the image cracked
And underneith it I discovered
A whole person
Who can really just
Be herself
To simply be
ME !

In times gone by, we of the sisterhood came together to share knowledge and wisdom so it could be passed down to the next generation. This tradition needs to be reinstated because so much of the Knowledge has been forgotten or lost. It still exists. It is only by joining with each other and sharing out individual gifts that the Knowing can be reawakened and brought back to it’s living form. In the days to come, this knowledge will be necessary for the survival of the coming generations. Traditions hold the key to the future and you must find the quiet within yourself in order t access the knowledge you will need. The quides and teachers are coming to you. Be open to them, accept their help and with a humble, grateful heart, follow your path. I am with you to point the way.
