I consider myself a native of north america - cuz I AM a native of north america - but i'm not so sure about my ancestors, i'm pretty sure we were just starving peasants from scotland.
One thing I've noticed is all the cool ceremony native indians in north america use -
My parents were not into ceremony, so i felt bereft - but only sort of. When this thought first occurred to me I realized that there's no time like the present for me to START ceremony and tradition in my life & because I have no preconceived notions handed down I could make up any ol' thing I want. YES !!!
We didn't do anything extreme for these end-of-year holidays tradition-wise, but every morning and every evening I try to celebrate and make into a ceremony the day - the beginning and the end, recognizing the 4 main elements, the 4 directions, and also sky father and earth mother and all my grandmas and grandpas (which is pretty much everything else) ~ Universe seemed to indicate to me that relics and recitation is not necessary, some people may need that, but for me - I'm good to make up whatever I want.
I feel like i am often flippant and not serious about these subjects that are very serious and deep, but I surely do not want to offend anybody - so PLEASE do not take offense if I type immature things.
Also - just fyi, my Mayan astrological signature is Yellow Self-existing Sun ... I also learned over these past years that most of my spiritual life will be flying solo - i was not the least surprised to learn i was "self-existing" - so the fact that this group FWII is here and I am allowed to be part of it, is like the biggest gift to me -
thanks to all y'all
and merriest happiest prosperous fun excellent 2013 to everyone with peace and love on and off Earth ♥♥♥♥
