The Elder’s Meditation of the Day is a beautiful resource from the Native Wellbriety movement. You can sign up to receive it daily from their website http://www.whitebison.org .
It is beautiful to be reminded of the wisdom of our elders and ancestors, and to remind ourselves each day of what is truly important (as opposed to what colonized society pushes on us as important like the “rat race” and paying to live on the planet we were BORN on!)
No matter what troubles we may be facing, reminding ourselves that we are but a small part of a very large, endlessly connected and beautiful circle of Life can be very comforting and help us regain perspective. Creator and all that is, is Love-and we can all access that love and the peace it brings every moment we choose to slow down and be in it.
If this is difficult for you-as it can certainly be when we are under stress!-just take a moment to ask Creator, Goddess, the Angels, or whatever deity or being you feel close to, to help you to feel it.
Help is always available if we are willing to reach for it, so don’t let the craziness of the current world bring you down. Step outside and feel the love the sun, the moon, the trees, the birds, butterflies, lizards, squirrels, other living things and the land itself are sending you every moment!
