The country is bowing our heads with sadness, with despair. Our leaders, whatever party , whatever theories , what ideologies that are being backed, have let ego, unwise, impulsive decisions because of not being willing to compromise when clearly we need to negotiate a compromise take over the leading of our country . This is when people who are making the decisions, need to be removed, changed, allowing others more humble, others more willing to be the greater good in play rather than wanting to just “be right” take charge. We often in our own being smaller fish in the pond, do the same thing. We are so wanting to prove our rightness, that we forget to think of the whole rather than just our part of it. Great amounts of time thinking, great thoughts of how will this affect everyone involved rather than just our own need to be right. Stepping back, thinking, rethinking, asking the Great Spirit for clarity, for truth, all in the world can put more positive into the situation. Right now in our country we need to put a bubble of pink healing light around us all. We need to remember by sending out positive energies to the leaders, to the country, our GREAT SPIRIT will provide for our needs, regardless of the economy, regardless of the fear, regardless of the intimidation we are feeling. Give back positive nature, we will receive positive blessings. Choose to give positive love, rather than hurtful thoughts. Criticism breeds contempt, fear breeds more fear, but faith breeds hope.
animal totems: Bro Blue Jay swoops in running all the other smaller birds off from the food. He knows with his loud mouth, his harsh caw, his bright color, his power, his strength, he can do this. He has power, teaching us that using our own personal power properly is a key thing to all of life. Jay comes from the latin word Gaea who is Goddess Mother Earth. The Blue jay reminds us that although the earth, the world was given to us to provide our needs, in truth the heavens, the great spirit is the giver of all things. this totem reminds us that gossip, rumor, the “grapevine” may not be all the facts, but that we must return to listen to the universe whispering our truths.
