Introduction To The Native American Teachings

The purpose of this article is to give a general background of knowledge of one of the oldest forms of Spirituality to exist on Earth.
Their beliefs were in existence long before Christianity and served the people who practiced them in good stead through many centuries. Although the main teachings will be from a North American Native point of view, the actual practices and beliefs were commonly held in many indigenous tribal cultures throughout the world including Hawaiian, Celt, South American Natives, Russian Shamanic cultures as well as many other societies like the Australian aboriginal tribes. This would indicate the common thread of belief and spiritual practice among a variety of people whom had no common connection before the advent of the last two centuries advancements of communications and travel.

The advanced teachings of the “Nature Philosophy” were usually taught by the Medicine people to their sons and daughters, or to any young person in the community who showed a deeper awareness of all  life around them and expressed an interest in finding deeper truths of life. If sufficient interest and proficiency was shown, the young man or woman was adopted by the Medicine Teacher and initiated into the teaching  of  the “Natural Way,” which included the arts of healing and special mental training, including what is referred to today as psychic perceptions and to the uninformed that which is called magic.

All of these teachings were given verbally and the student was required to commit them to memory and when the time came for them to assume the role of teacher they passed these teaching on through a rich tradition of oral communication.

“The Indian made an effort to know of spiritual things from his own observations of nature, because all truth can be found in Nature. There is a spiritual beauty in the realization that the world has been deliberately made or created, and is in perfect balance ecologically, and that is not by chance. Lastly, it is based upon spiritual revelation of the truth to the individual. When it happens for you, you then KNOW… and no one else can tell you otherwise
 -ELI Gatoga, Cherokee (1914-1983)

In his observation of Nature, the Indian not only enjoyed the beauty that abounded in his environment, but was also aware of an overlying spiritual feeling that exists throughout all of creation.

Native American cultures were characterized by an intimate relationship with nature. The Great Spirit was perceived as the divine power that created the world. The religious beliefs and practices of the Native Indian tribes included Shamanism, Animism, Totemism, Fetishism and their rituals and ceremonies led by a Shaman, centered around hunting and animals. The creed or doctrine of these belief systems held that intelligent spirits inhabited all natural objects and every object is controlled by its own independent spirit. Spirits inhabit the sky, stars, sun, moon, rivers, lakes, mountains, forests, the animals, insects, fish, stones, flowers and birds.  Animals, refer to Power Animals,  are singled out as powerful manifestations of the supernatural, including those seen in dreams or Vision Quests. Lesser spirits inhabited stones and plants and viewed as ‘spirit helpers.

Here’s one of the philosophy for the Native American:

Philosophy To Myself

” I will think about what kind of person I want to be when I am an Elder.

I will start developing myself now to be this person.

I will walk with the Great Spirit and the grandfathers at my side. I will develop myself to remain positive. I will develop a good mind.

I will examine myself daily to see what I did good and what I need to improve. I will examine my strength and weaknesses, then I will ask the Creator to guide me. I will develop a good mind.

Each day, I will listen to the Creators voice in the wind. I will watch nature and ask to be shown a lesson which will occur on my path.

I will seek out the guiding principles, which guided my ancestors. I will walk in dignity, honor and humility, conducting myself as a warrior.

I will seek the guidance of the Elders so that I may maintain the knowledge of culture, ceremonies, and songs, and so that I may pass these on to the future generations.

I choose to do all these things myself, because no one else can do them for me.

I know I cannot give away what I don’t have, so I will need to walk the talk.

The native american teachings show us that nature itself holds tremendous wisdom that can benefit Humanity, if we learn to recognize it.

Ascension Guidance: Summer Solstice Transmission – June 2015

Good day, loving peeps!

As we go through this Solstice gateway, things will amplify at such a scale that is of major importance to become more aware of our creations. The reason why things will amplify is in order for us to get more clarity and insight on them. It’s bringing the unconscious to conscious. By becoming aware of the unconscious in the Now you can ask yourself ” Is that what I want to create ? Is that what I want to embody ? ” If so, set your intentions straight related to what you want to create and allow your creations to manifest naturally, allow the Universe to take care of the details. All you have to do is be aware in the present moment of Now and surrender to all that is.

At the same time, deep ingrained in the unconscious we might hold lower vibrational stuff (fear), so that might surface as well. This gives you the opportunity to transmute it and align yourself with a higher vibration. The Universe is neutral, it doesn’t make the difference between good or bad, because there actually isn’t, that’s an illusion. So, energy flows where attention goes, as in we manifest the energy we feed, the one we focus upon and therefore we align ourselves with that vibration through the power of choice. By becoming more aware, you become more responsible for that which you bring into the world. What do you choose to bring into your reality, into the world ? Make a clear statement about it, state it outloud even. Feel that. It is a simple way of setting intentions after all.

Work on the shadow self is not excluded these times either, it is actually quite probable that happens. It is time to accept, embrace, love and transcend certain aspects of ourselves that until now  felt too uncomfortable to deal with, so we ignored them. You are whole, but in order to become wholy-er, you have to acknowledge and embrace all you are. See yourself through the eyes of divine perfection, not through the mind’s perception. All this is a beautiful process though, but not the easiest one. This shadow work is done on an individual level, but also on a collective one, as they go hand-in-hand. The collective shadow work can be quite intense, as we’ve gathered a lot of “shadows” throughout the milleniums, so make sure you nurture yourself through it.

In terms of Soul purpose, many will be guided to new “paths”, new directions, possibly unfamiliar to them until now. Have you been having thoughts lately about starting something new ? Now is the time to do so. Courage is needed to stand straight in the unknown, in the void, a lot of dedication, trust and faith as well. It is not easy work, I’m telling you, but this is the place of creation, this is where the true magic happens,and be rest assured that you will not be dissappointed by the outcome of it.

Now let’s not get too serious. We are entering a third month cycle, till the eclipse approximatively. It feels like the most exciting, fun and joyous one so far, most likely because of the Unity Consciousness that is currently taking Humanity by storm. The pioneers of ascension have connected and anchored the Unity grid strongly within themselves and into the planet now. They are conduits for the Unity codes and these codes radiate through their whole beingness, it’s in the DNA and once activated, these people act as facilitators for the physical manifestation of Unity Consciousness.

Now that the pioneers are “in place”, it will be easier for others to follow the path of Unity, to activate and anchor deeply the Unity codes within their hearts. This is happening at an accelerated pace now and as more and more people go through that process, the physical changes will become more and more aparent. This is the great shift, fam! This shift, however, is ongoing, has many smaller shifts and eventhough in linear time it’s spread over the years, it’s all happening Now. This is the road to a peaceful Earth, to harmony between its inhabitants and to all the dreams we’ve been carrying deep in our hearts, in our DNA. This is the Divine Plan and not only that all are part of it, but all are it, whether aware of it or not. Remember ? If not, you will at the right time.

We are currently being upgraded. These, again, depend on each individual. Some are receiving the upgrades now, some choose to receive the upgrades lately, and everybody receives them differently in a unique way. It doesn’t really matter. Because it is an individual process, make sure you don’t compare your experiences with other’s experience. Yes, there might be similarity, but in the end, you always have to go within yourself to get clarity. No one knows you and the way you function better than yourself, your Team and Highest Self.

These upgrades will simply help you integrate and hold more Light within your beingness, so it facilitates expansion, however that is expressed in your reality. Our lightbody keeps integrating deeper in our physical body, our “bodies” are merging into One and it keeps expanding. We are becoming grander and grander, not that we aren’t already, but we are embodying divinity, more spirit as humans. How amazing is that ?

There has been some significant solar activity today that’s supporting our metamorphosis, coincidentally (not really) right before the solstice. The Sun facilitates the integration and processing of all the upgrades. As always, make sure you hydrate well, so the energy flows freely and be gentle with yourself and your body as it’s going through these intense upgrades. Simply listen to your it, it will tell you what it needs. Be open to receiving these upgrades, we need them for the next chapter of Ascension.

Let go of projecting yourself in the future. Observe yourself and ground yourself in your body in the present moment of now. Use the energies of the Solstice and the solar activity to purify. Don’t worry about the future, don’t worry if you are doing the “right” thing, if you are headed the “right” direction, it is all a waste of energy and a big distraction from living. In order for your Soul purpose to manifest naturally and effortlessly, your presence is needed. So, stay present in the moment and all will be revealed to you in divine timing. Happy Solstice and celebrate each moment!

Love and Light,
