Gitchie Manito- The Great MysteryI was recently reminded, of my past experience with the Ojbawea language course I took at UWM 13 years ago. The sound of my teacher expressing herself in a poetic way that was ancient, unfamiliar and very mystical still sits with me from time to time. This recall mostly happens when I am in nature, watching the Neebageesis ( moon) or just simply hearing thunder (animikee) in the distance. But the most significant word and phrase and lesson I learned from studying with these amazing indigenous people was that of The Great Mystery. In every religion there is that, the mystery of it all. We are living in times where we have to ask ourselves, am I living each day to my fullest? Are you able to sit with not having it all figured out, not having an absolute plan and allowing the mystery of life to unfold as it should? The ultimate in surrender yes? We are in big huge, big huge time of transition right now friends. In that transition piece lays a part of us that wants to let go of everything and everyone who does not serve our higher good, and as of Thursday 11/2 you have the universes permission. Let go let go let go.
Making a decision of who,what and where to let go, might come as a shock. It might come as fear, it might not simply come up at all. Deciding not to decide is still a decision. So then you have the upcoming winter, ( winter is coming) to sit with all this. This is the season of going inward and reflection. Action will take place in Spring, but for now it's time to make your list of all the things, people, issues that are holding you hostage to not being able to see and trust into the Gitchie manito.
One of my favorite new quotes I have hanging at my desk is this:
"if you have a talent, use it in every which way possible. Don’t' hoard it. Don't dole it out like a miser. Spend it lavishly, like a millionaire, intent on going broke." Brenda Francis
So if you have a talent my friends, use it in every which way possible. Even if that talent is just holding space for someone, hold it. Baking cookies, bake. Sewing quilts, sew. You get the idea. The time is ripe for us to let our gifts and talents shine and come out. Find your voice, speak your truth and know that when you are feeling oh so unsure, it's just a transit. It will pass, it won't last forever.
Surrender into the Gitchie Manito and allow yourself to listen.
Reiki and essential oils help with this type of surrender & release work. And during the month of November I am going to be using a wonderful new blend of oils in your custom blend. This will include two amazing healing oils, tobacco and sage. The mother tincture will be created on the Full Moon 11/2 . This full moon is sure to be potent and the blends will reflect this vibration. To schedule a session please email or call today. - 414-699-9947 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time
