The perfect holiday gift: a “Book Flood”

Is there any better gift than a book? Not to me!

There’s a lovely tradition in Iceland that I would love to see embraced here in the U.S.  In Iceland, the best Christmas gift is considered a book. It’s traditional to exchange books on Christmas Eve and spend the night reading them!

So here are some books and CDs you might consider giving as gifts, unless your shopping is already done!

A Native American Thanksgiving Prayer

Thanksgiving prayer is common to most religious groups.  Native Americans had days-long ceremonies just for the purpose of expressing thanks. I find it sad that in modern America, Thanksgiving has become more about a meal than gratitude for all we  have.

This Thanksgiving Prayer comes from the Seneca Nation in the Northeastern United States and is at least 500 years old. It gives thanks for everything given us by Mother Earth.

It is traditionally done around a fire, with spiritual food on the altar. I have conducted this prayer as a ceremony for many years. You might wish to use it as a  Thanksgiving Prayer on our national holiday:

How Meditation Made Me A Better Golfer

Dear Readers: This guest post by Loîs Talagrand demonstrates the point I’ve been making over the years about meditation. It can even enhance your golf game!

A few years ago, I heard about a strange practice that could take my golf to the next level.

If you’re anything like me when I was a kid, you would watch the PGA tour and your jaw would hit the floor. How were these people able to hit the ball so far and with that much accuracy?

Watching these pros was like watching modern-day magic being to me. I became instantly hooked and the desire to play the game has never left me.

Uluru and Mauna Kea: Where the Gods reside

There is a spiritual war going on in the world today, and our future depends on how well we deal with it. What’s happening at Mauna Kea in Hawaii is a prime example of the problem.

So is Standing Rock, Native American land on which oil companies wanted to build a pipeline without Native permission.

And the desecration of Uluru in Australia by tourists for generations, even though it has been spiritual home to the Anangu tribes of Central Australia for 30,000 years. While tourists climb to the top of Uluru, the Anangu don’t.

Have you noticed all the sacred land being confiscated for use by corporations and oil companies?  It’s not just for them to make money fracking or drilling for oil, or putting up a telescope.

All this sacred land that is being confiscated and defiled has been cared for by indigenous peoples for time immorial.

The land is sacred because many of these locations are portals to allow celestial energies to come through and help us.  This is why indigenous people fight so hard to protect these lands.

By taking over the sacred lands, the corporations are shutting down the light and divine guidance coming to this planet.  We simply must not let that  happen.

Why weeding is a great meditation!

If you have a garden, I know you spend time weeding. Many consider it an inconvenience. But true gardeners can get in “the zone” while doing it – and that is actually mindfulness, or meditation.

When I purchased my first house over 20 years ago, I was pretty darn excited.  About everything, even weeding.

I do know that, in the bigger picture of things, weeds are simply plants that we don’t know the use for. . . yet.

But sometimes they grow where we don’t want them.  And what’s to be done, but … weeding!

Why we should celebrate the Autumn Equinox

This year, autumn officially begins on September 23, 2016, at 2:50 a.m. EST.

Our ancestors celebrated all equinoxes and solstices, but the autumn equinox seems to have been a little less celebrated than the others. I’m not sure what the historical reason is, but for myself, I’m sad to see summer coming to an end and am not quite ready to say goodbye to summer and welcome in the fall.

But it happens. It’s part of the cycle of life, and to be in tune with the natural world, it’s important to honor these special natural events.

Do You Live In Linear Time or Natural Time? Why It Matters

Do you live in linear time, or natural time? Do you know the difference? Which is better for your physical and spiritual health? Today’s blog/podcast tells us the answer.

Traditional indigenous people the world over speak the language of spirit – what I mean by that is they knew how to have a two-way communication with the natural world around them, because they live in natural time.

How the 7th Generation Principle May Save Our Planet

  Whenever I mention the 7thGeneration principle to most people, they think I’m talking about the ecologically friendly laundry detergent company.  I’m always surprised that more people don’t know the origin of the term, so I felt it deserved an episode, particularly at this time in our history, where our very future is at stake.
