MAY THE SUN
bring you new energy by day,
MAY THE MOON
softly restore you by night,
MAY THE RAIN
wash away your worries,
MAY THE BREEZE
blow new strength into your being
MAY YOU WALK
gently through the world and know
its beauty all the days of your life ~Apache Blessing
I’ve always felt connected to the blood and beliefs of the Native American culture. In my past life regression, I was a little Native American girl riding her horse through the corn fields. The intensity of my Mother’s love created a glow that was undeniable. So much so it brought tears to my eyes. Her love filled me with a warmth I cannot describe. I sure felt it though. I believe she is with me to this day. My Father was a strong, loving man who made sure we were all well cared for. Yep, this was my experience 10 years ago. It was like one of those dreams that are so real you wonder if you dreamed it or not. This is my truth.
When I landed in Santa Fe, New Mexico, 4 years ago, it felt so familiar. Surrounded by red dirt, turquoise and brown skin, I knew I was home. As I entered the resort for my book writing workshop more mementos jumped at me. Then I entered my room, and who was on my wall but Sitting Bull! Sitting Bull is my friend’s spirit guide and he has helped me through many a rough road too. It was the exact picture that hangs in my friend’s office adjacent to mine, only this one was life-size! I slept so comfortably in that room, feeling protected.
When I reach to the sky and ground myself to the earth, I’m at peace. They are my Spirit roots. It is my home.
