Greetings Sacred Friends,
It amazes me how re-arranging one letter within a word can change its meaning so dramatically. My main example is the word SACRED, especially since I started using my Native name professionally, Sacred Tobacco Woman.
The word SACRED can turn into the word SCARED in an instant. I can still feel it sometimes, scared. The good news is that I now have the strength through knowledge to recognize the fear. I feel the fear as a physical force, a presence, and I bravely stand my ground and let the fear evaporate as I consciously gaze upon it. I then move my body to a power stance and guide my thoughts to a blessing of peace or a prayer of gratitude to the Creator.
This week’s article is inspired by all of the sacred little ones that live as scared little ones in our Native communities.
Here's the latest article from the Native American site at BellaOnline.com.
