From the shores of Aotearoa (New Zealand) peace and blessings in 2012.

Yes this year is already ending and a new one on it's way (2012)! Embrace it, revel in it and get ready for it!

Keep it sane, sober and in prospective. Love everyone around you, forgive past debts and let go of any bad feelings. Hold your loved ones close and remember to honor Mother Earth.



May you walk in beauty

Good words, and I might add something extra if I may...we have to say that change is inevitable. It has always been with us. We should not be afraid of it. We should accept it and try to be prepared when it happens.


Embrace it! Be happy! Love it! Love your family! It's like the change of the seasons, there's not much you can do about it. The time you like best will come!

We know a big change is coming  when We realize a different Way is better than the current way.  Often times we resist this change because it will be different from the place We are at. But this place We are at right now is pretty fouled up.

As in changing a job, the job change is about what next? Our current job is over. So Now We move on. My old boss was the president at one time of a company this one  worked for. This one saw the end coming after the new owner asked about what we should do now.

This one said we should have fun, as in enjoying the things we are involved in. This was  a death nell. He was a corporate pirate, looking only at profit. A slave to the roman empire model of divide and conquer.

So this previous boss, a friend who was fired, came back and said, since a job offer was in my hand, asked what are you waiting for? That clicked in because I was on the fence. Do I try to hold on or just let go?

I let go. This change was better than I could have ever expected based on holding to the other way. Holy Cow, it was way better! This one of us just did it. So many good things flowed forth from this.

So this is not about this one but more about Us. Just let go when pounded by the push and enjoy the rush of the pull as We move on. Know this, it gets better. We are not here to be pounded. 

Let Us All Enjoy the Unfolding of the Next Level of Awareness, and just move on in a Divine manner to just Be. As in Being We. The completion will be Clear and Clean. The Brave in Us Speak of this Now and I listen in a Respectful Manner

Yes! Speak! I am listening and I will answer!

Be strong! Be brave! Become the warrior you were meant to be. But remember to be gentle.

Tomorrow morning will be a special one. About 6:30 AM PST the Sun and the Moon will be 180 degrees apart, with the Earth putting the moon completely in it's shadow. A full Lunar Eclipse. There will be some places on Earth that one could see the Moon setting and the Sun rising at the same time. I wish I could be at one of those places. I will envision that in my mind as I wake tomorrow and pray for peace, Humanity and Love. This event will have a significance on our lives. May all our relations help us with strength and courage, as we, Native peoples begin our journey back to prominence as caretakers of this Earth

Glad you decided to join our clan. Words are not shared much, but hopefully we'll be able to talk a bit more frequently.

Welcome and blessings to you and yours,



Apache Elder

My fire was stoked up tonight. Snow on the ground, even the cat stayed in. He represented animal stories and We had a grand time. All stoked up for the long winter night. Hope you are well with You My Friend. This is How iI should Be. We must Wrap ourselves in the robe of  ]The Light. My ancestors from Norway did this in Tipis just like Now.

Comment by White-Bear on December 6, 2011 at 11:38am

Winter is upon us!

Time to store ourselves in our tipis and stoke up our fires! Make sure your buffalo robe is nearby, too.


Brush up on your stories, love everyone that comes into your lodge and be content.


Blessings and Merry Christmas,



Apache Elder

Autumn is just around the corner! Time to prepare our lodges for the coming of the time of snow. So, make sure you have lots of wood for your fires, shake out your buffalo robes and make sure you have an extra seat when friends come by to visit. Aho!

May you walk in beauty
