God, the Creator

GOD, THE CREATOR

by Frank Stronghorse

 

Certainly there is probably no other topic that enlist such a wide variety of emotional responses than a discussion on what and/or who is God. In a world wherein, for thousands of years, the “anointed” representatives of God have place Him in such an abstract position in relation to the human consciousness, there is no wonder that a discussion about God results in such emotional and varied responses. Perhaps if His presence was to become much more energetically familiar to all of us than has previously been known, a lot of the conflicting dialogue would become mute. And, there is a very good chance that this is closer than you think.

Four Enemies of the Human

 

Four Enemies of the Human

by Frank Stronghorse

 

(These teachings came to me via Harley Swiftdeer and the Twisted Hair Medicine Society of Turtle Island)

There are four basic enemies of the human which work to keep them from fully engaging with their spirit/soul selves. These enemies are common to all humans, yet they present themselves to every human on different levels and with different disguises. These enemies are Fear, Clarity, Power, and Death/old age.

 

These enemies create doubt in the minds of mankind and this doubt tends to redirect one’s true higher purpose, or authentic self, away from an intimate relationship with the web of life and into a concentrated need for personal power and prestige. This separation creates a void that increases the illusions of the need to entertain one’s self with these enemies instead of becoming the authentic self that is inside of the destiny of mankind.

Flowering Tree Ceremony

Flowering Tree Ceremony

(aka Talking Tree)

by Frank Stronghorse

 

This ceremony is designed for the apprentice to learn the art of the “give away” and to find his/her connection to nature through the development of the inner “voice” with nature. One must find the Voice of the Mother and ask for guidance.

1) Pick a location in nature where you can not be disturbed or the interaction with other humans is lessen. Go to this place and silently ask for Mother Earth to guide you to a tree who is willing to work with you. Begin walking and watch for a particular tree to catch your attention. Approach this tree and offer it tobacco or corn meal and ask it with respect to work with you.

2) Figure out the four directions. (S-W-N-E) Begin the ceremony by sitting in the South with your back to the tree and your head against the trunk. Place your left hand on the ground and your right hand on your one point (located a few inches below the navel). Ask the tree: Who am I? Sit quietly and listen. Do not judge what you hear, just quietly listen. When you feel complete, move to the West and ask: Where did I come from?
Again, remain quiet and respectful. When you feel complete, move to the North and ask: Why am I here? When you feel complete, move to the East and ask: Where am I going? What is my path with heart?

3) At any point in any of these directions, if you feel a blocks or any negative emotions state very intently: “I give _________ away.” Continue to do this until you feel complete. You may have several in one direction or none in any directions. The next time you do the ceremony, this may totally change. The point is to use this ceremony to clear yourself and gain clarity. The tree understands this better than you and will assist.

4) At the end of the ceremony, stand facing the tree and again offer it tobacco or corn meal and offer your heartfelt thanks. If you feel the need to return to any of the directions, do so. Leave and return to your starting place.

Repeat this ceremony as needed.

Navigating Life with Ethics

Navigating Life with Ethics

by Frank Stronghorse

 

Ethics are defined, by modern man, as morals or sets of behaviors that determine right from wrong and good from bad. This definition was somehow slipped into the dictionary by the religious image makers who decided to capitalize on ethics by turning the people away from what ethics actually were and towards a moral set of rules and laws that they defined.

 

Ethics have nothing to do with morals. Ethics are an individualistic, intuitive set of beliefs that one develops over lifetimes and serves as a continuum between you and your Creator. Out of these beliefs come actions and behaviors which define for you and your soul a rational basis for existence. For most humans, their ethics are anchored into Mother Life and Mother Earth, although they don’t consciously know it. Ethics have a natural flow about them that serves to heighten one’s connection to the Divine. Consequently, ethics are the steering mechanism or rudder to your spirit canoe. When you pass over, your ethics become the guiding light that leads you towards your higher self as well as the determining factor in your choices in how you choreograph your following lifetimes. Therefore, ethics and how you manage your ethics, become paramount in everyone’s life.
