Native American Wisdom and Politics

Like everyone else I have moments where I must make decisions on how best to meet and deal with the daily challenges in life. I am learning that the best approach is often through the power of positive intent, ceremony and prayer. And a beautiful expression of that arrived in my inbox yesterday from friend and fellow shamanic practitioner Jackie Branagan. Grandfather Yellow Horse Man’s words so perfectly expressed how that power can be accessed by those who are disappointed by recent election results, or by any other disappointments in life, that I felt drawn to share them.

Hello Family,

I speak to you today from the heart to send you Joy, Happiness and Love – these are the most positive emotions that make our lives meaningful and fulfilling. When we are expressing these feelings we are sending out our highest vibrations of light. I feel that we could all use this good energy at this moment and time after all the negative emotions that have been put out in this election – creating fear, self doubt and dissatisfaction with the way things have been headed. Yet if we allow ourselves to attach to all the fear that has been put out, we as individuals attract more circumstances to be fearful about. I have said many times that when we believe in Great Spirit, Creator/God there is nothing to fear. Politicians will come and go, but Creator will always be there for each of us.

We have reached a point in our transition where our spiritual development is of much greater importance than our preoccupation with current things that are going on in Washington. The drama that is going on will soon play itself out as more truths will be coming into public awareness. Our greatest strength is detachment from this illusion and working from our soul level of consciousness to change our negative attitudes and behaviors.

When you think of yourself and the way that things have worked out from your past – you know that holding onto all the negativity has not allowed you to leap forward in your spiritual growth. Instead, you are always thinking of your choices you made and not the knowledge you could learn from making these choices and learning from each part of the experience. The law of attraction is set in motion by your thoughts and feelings. In other words – when thoughts and feelings are focused on stressful situations you manifest new worries to deal with.

Creator/God made the natural laws to govern throughout the universe simple, yet we have a tendency to make everything so complex. We as a people and universal family are all connected to each other – working for the same goals of enlightening our souls to create and live in a world of Creators dream of peace where our light and energy will touch Mother Earth and return her to her original pristine beauty.

May we all touch each other today by sending love to Mother Earth and to each other. I love you family. I will leave you with this prayer:

Great Grandfathers in the Four Sacred Directions, Good Spirits, Mother Earth, Father Sky. Creator/God we open our hearts to you today to accept your beautiful dream of peace this day. Creator/God we ask you to touch each heart and soul to help take away our fears and to fill our hearts with your beautiful love. I pray also Creator that those who are saddened by events that have taken place in their lives whether through illness, divorce, trauma or just everyday stress – I pray that all will receive your beautiful healing. I pray also Creator/God that we all move forward and believe in you and believe that we can change our world and lives by sharing and caring for each other and learning how to be in better service of each other. I pray Creator that we let go of our judgments and learn to forgive those around us so that we may feel peace this day and the power of love.

  1. Thank you so much for forwarding these wise words. I am enjoying the sunny blue skies, the varieties of birds on my feeders, the giant pine wrapping itself around my deck, the well-being to get some things done, the freedom to do them in peace, abundance of delicious food, much-loved clothing, all the aspects of the moment. And in even deeper gratitude, I hold my dear fluffy boy Taji – who even now has come inside to visit me yet again – and Tassie, a stubborn calico whose unremitting devotion for 16 years has enabled me to keep moving forward. My many sister-friends, whom I would trust with my life… my abilities and education… I never dreamed my life would be this rich and blessed. These are the things to focus on, to be grateful for. Grandfather Yellow Horse is right. Let us think on these things. As a man thinks, so is he. Let us choose happiness.
