Water Ceremony, September 27, 2011, 6 p.m.

 Weather permitting we will hold Water Ceremony outside in the Sand Dunes.
Afterwards we will dance in circle
around a rescued pine tree on the property at Hospitality House.

Before dancing, Jackie / Godarvi will teach us a simple chant that we will sing and dance to. Jackie says, “I’d like to read what qualities the names of God we’ll be chanting refer to and just give a brief statement or 2 about Siddha Yoga chanting.”  Description: “I would be happy to introduce you to a form of chanting that can induce the experience of the divinity within each of us, the source of universal Oneness. In the tradition I follow, Siddha Yoga (which originated in India), chanting is
a key spiritual practice. It can purify our surroundings, fill us with love and joy, free us from worry, bring us supreme contentment, and let us experience the divinity that lies inside. We chant different names for God, each evoking certain qualities of the one God.”

Community meal follows.

Please RSVP 715 466-5349. Thank you. Miigwetch!

Let’s share books that promote women’s advocacy to action.  Like a Tree by Jean Shinoda Bolen. How trees, women, and tree people can save the planet.

Beautiful intention:  Danka Brewer, Mother Earth Water Walkers,
“Maja awi mino niiban, sweet dreams May the Creator keep you safely in his loving arms and grant that we might rise and greet the dawning of a new day and each other spirits tomorrow. May The Dawning of a New Day bring you to a better place to start from and a bright path to travel tomorrow.”

August Deer Medicine: “When deer show up in your life it is time to be gentle with yourself and others. A new innocence and freshness is about to be awakened or born. There is going to be a gentle, enticing lure of new adventures. Ask yourself important questions.  Are you trying to force things? Are others? Are you being too critical and uncaring of yourself? When deer show up there is an opportunity to express gentle love that will open new doors to adventure for you.

Vulnerable White Trillium Lily

This year’s Water Four Directions Mother Earth Water Walkers is imperative as we realize we must honor water which is sacred and a gift to all living species. Please support the many who are walking and will converge at Bad River Reservation on June 12. A council guide from the Sisterhood of Planetary Water Rites plans to attend. We hope that several women from the Water Ceremony group of Minong, WI, will attend also.

The vulnerable white trillium lily of early spring grows in the sweet woods. The sounds of happy gurgling water and singing birds gladdens the heart. Sweet watercress grows in the stream where the water spills out into a pure stream. Watercress will not grow in unpure water.

We must protect our local drinking water sources. After seeing Blue Gold, I am going to ask my village where the water source is and where the sewage goes. The film suggests we do this to be informed about our own community water supply.

Peace Meditation Message from Sun Bear, Cherokee Elder

Dear Water Sisters and Brothers of The Sisterhood of the Planetary Water Rites:
   
Subject: message from Sun Bear

just in from Sun Bear….
Hi Everyone,

I received an urgent phone call from Willy Whitefeather; Cherokee Elder; on the evening of November 28th, 2010. He spoke about the tense situation between North and South Korea, and other potential Hot Spots around the World for full scale War.
He is asking everyone who is willing to participate; to begin on December 1st, at 12:00 Noon, to focus on Prayers For Divine Intervention, for a minimum of !2 minutes; and continuing this each day at 12:00 noon, until December 12th, 2010.
Willy would like this request to go out to as many people as possible around the World. This has to do with creating Mass Activation of  The 12-12 Universal Harmonic Frequencies Of Change And Balance. (12th month; 12 noon; 12 minutes; until the 12th day of December). We are the ones we’ve been waiting for, to bring peace and harmony to the World.

Love To All

WATER MEDITATION Sunday May 9 for PLANETARY WATER SISTERS

Tonya Whitedeer of the Sisters of the Planetary Water Rites in California sent the following excerpted email:

Pure Shell Lake in Shell Lake, Wisconsin

Pure Shell Lake in Shell Lake, Wisconsin

  I wish I was not writing to tell you that the Gulf of Mexico is experiencing an epic oil spill.  I wish we were not witnessing what may become the largest oil spill in US history.  I am asking for your help.  I am calling for a group meditation on Sunday evening.  (Of course…any time you love water…whether today or tomorrow or Sunday…it will make a difference…so join when you can.)

I am calling for a miracle.  Let’s join in a meditation to cap the oil leak Sunday night at 5:00 p.m. Pacific & AZ time. I feel that this oil spill has served to wake us up.  Maybe this will allow us to refocus, and find a better solution to meet our energy needs.  For that awakening, we give thanks.  Our hearts open to the families who have experienced loss, and trauma.  Our hearts embrace all life in the area affected; people, wildlife, flora and water.

  Grandmother and water sister Tonya Whitedeer says, “Invite the Spirit of Water to be fully present and enlivened and one with the Spirit of the Gulf of Mexico.”  Turn your thoughts and prayers towards purity of water and to cap the oil leak Sunday evening 5 p.m. Pacific & AZ time, 6 p.m. Mountain time, Central standard time 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern standard time.  Let’s stand in solidarity and prayer for five minutes and give our healing energy to water.  Tell the water that you love her and are doing your part to protect her insectamonarca friends where ever you live.

Blessings,
Memengwaa Ikway
