Take me Away

As the sun begins to fade, the waves bounce off the rocks and glide over the sand. Water can be as gentle as a summer’s breeze or hard as a mountain top. Water can make or destroy life; powerful unlike anything other.

As I sit on a rock by the water’s edge I am reminded how beautiful it is to be alive. Water is everything. Without her we are nothing. She is the glue that binds our atoms together. She is energy, she is the one thing we can’t live without.

When the world turns cold she becomes hardened and unbreakable. When she gets heated she is what cools us. We drink her; nourishment in the simplest form. How can we ever take her for granted? She will still be here long after we are gone.

When I am close to her she opens my heart and mind. I offer her tobacco and pray to Creator and her. The greatest gift from Creator is tobacco we should honour that gift to creator everyday.

Thoughts enter my mind. All my insecurities and self doubt arise. I hold my sema in my left hand close to my heart. I don’t have to speak Creator already knows our troubles and doubts. I just give thanks for the blessings and the lesson that unfold while on my journey down the Red Road. I never ask why I just accept what is and leave it in Creator’s  hands, he knows whats best for all of us. I leave what no longer serves purpose with the water and she takes it away.

I have many dreams and goals. I work hard to make them happen but, I also know that everything I do is not my doing, it is our Ancestor’s and Creator who guide us. I have faith that they will take me away to higher places. I want to fly as high as the Eagle does, above the clouds close to the stars. I have the vision of an eagle and I see what is inshore for me. The perfect gift Creator has given to Creation is finding high self in simplistic things, and most impotantly never forget to give Creator the greatest gift he gave to us… Sema. He loves to receive the very same gift to from you.

Climate Awareness

We all are enjoying the oddly warm winter we are having this year. Although it feels like a blessing we need to be aware of the affects it is having on other parts of the world as well as our home cities.

I must admit that I am rather fond of this weather but this is very damaging to our future sustainability. R.A.I.N to heal M.E (realize awareness in nations to heal mother earth) is a grassroots initiative to come together as ALL nations to look at ways to bring awareness and make changes to heal our planet. I have been deeply involved in the free 12 month programs across Ontario to come up with solutions, and to meditate collectively to bring awareness within each and everyone of us. http://www.free-meditation.ca

This proposal was created by the Sahaja Yogini’s of the Halton region. These volunteers have committed there time, talent and creativity to bring this awareness to everyone. Sahaja yoga was discovered in 1970 by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi. The source of all her knowledge is how we have collectively come together. I personally have been a Sahaja yogini for 1 1/2 years. Based on my experience I have never felt anything so rewarding than to be a part of an initiative that is very much needed now!

Some rather shocking facts have been discovered by scientists and NASA. The arctic has receded 40% since 1979 and NASA has predicted that by 2037 it could have an entire ice free summer. If this happens many coastal cities will submerge into various large bodies of water around the world. The Arctic has felt the most damage of our ignorance to protect our Mother Earth.

This is not just about the facts of climate change it is also a call to action to come together to engage in ways that will we can address immediate action to prevent further damage. The reality is if we don’t do something soon the conditions will only get worse. Resources will decrease by double, food, water and clean air will become even more of a commodity. Collectively from our diverse nation of North America we can make change, we are stronger in numbers.

As an Indigenous woman I know the importance of balancing in all things. Mother Earth cannot heal as fast as we are destroying her. Also, as a Sahaja yogini I have learned that it is our duty to share true knowledge. With so many natural catastrophes happening around the world it is hard not to want to make change; we must remember that change happens within ourselves outwards.
