Tale of Two Wolves with bear Medicinewalker

2 wolvees

Today I call for Snake Medicine… teach us that we are Universal beings… and that through accepting all aspects of life you can help us bring about balance and light the fire so we can cast the shadows out.
Definition of DARK ENERGY
: a hypothetical form of energy that produces a force that opposes gravity and is thought to be the cause of the accelerating expansion of the universe
The dominant component (about 70 percent) of the universe. Its nature is not well understood, but it differs from matter in being gravitationally repulsive. Dark energy is detected by its effect on the rate at which the universe expands. Many explanations have been proposed for dark energy; the simplest is that it is an energy density inherent to empty space.
Definition of LIGHT
1a : something that makes vision possible
b : the sensation aroused by stimulation of the visual receptors
: a source of light: as
a : a celestial body
a : spiritual illumination
b : inner light
c : enlightenment
d : truth

Fear…darkness… evil… shadows… demons…hell …the devil… all labels given to bad things that as humans we may witness throughout our lives. If you don’t think they exist, or don’t want to believe they exist, that is your choice. But myself…I feel that we are better prepared if we understand it…so that we can walk in balance and stay the course of light.

As our voices are heard for good…and as they grow louder…we are often challenged with doubts and fears, sometimes we are challenged by the darkness itself… and when that happens we need to be true to who we are…and allow that energy no place with in our lives. I am not a Preacher…or a Prophet… But I am not naive in thinking that the darkness will not grow if we allow it to seep and flow into our lives….

Story of Two Wolves
Here is the same story, but it is called “Grandfather Tells” which is also known as “The Wolves Within”

An old Grandfather said to his grandson, who came to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, “Let me tell you a story.
I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times.” He continued, “It is as if there are two wolves inside me. One is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him, and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way.

But the other wolf, is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger,for his anger will change nothing.  Sometimes, it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit.”

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather’s eyes and asked, “Which one wins, Grandfather?”
The Grandfather smiled and quietly said, “The one I feed.”
So should we be scared of darkness? My answer to that is now…we must be aware of it… we must understand it… so that in turn we do not feed it.

Let us join spiritual hands to offer prayer.

I call to the sacred winds…to carry my words
To the Grandmothers and Grandfathers of the North, the south, the east, the west, Above …below and within…

I call to the sacred winds to carry my words to the Winged ones…the Four Leggeds…the Plant People…the Crystal Keepers, the Thunder Beings, the Angelic Realm…Mother Mary and Magdalene…my Brother Christ and all the nations that love us.

I thank you for all the many blessings that you have shared with us today and beyond and I ask that you hear our prayers whether spoken our held silently within our hearts.

Today I ask that you hear our prayers as we stand humbly before you, small and human.
Help us to remember we are all but a tiny part of a great universe, that we are all connected as one…

Bring us the strength we need to walk our paths without ego or judgment…
Allow our hearts to hear what our ears are missing
Teach us how to allow forgiveness for others and ourselves
Fill our being with the unconditional love that you so freely offer all.
I call that we be reminded we are all no better than or less than one another.

Guide us through our days, to help us with our humanness…that we learn to reconnect with others in a gentle and positive way. Offering smiles when they are needed without thought, shoulders or ears to help ease another…and words that will uplift or soothe.

Keep our children safe and strong in this troubled world… I ask that on this day and days to come…guidance is shared with our children to help them as they walk their paths. Help open their eyes so they can learn and see the right way of things, teach them to respect all life no matter how small, open their ears and minds so that they may understand things that are being taught to them in a good and gentle manner…open their hearts so that when the harshness of the world falls at their feet, they can cope and handle it with compassion and understanding.

I ask that today and all days ahead, that we are held in your loving Grace Creator…that we are able to understand the darkness that shadows parts of our world and allow the light to shine upon those very shadows. May we feed the good in ourselves and others. May we be protected from the very shadows that challenge the lights we all carry…Knowing that in the end… shadows will exist no longer when light shines through.

I thank all those who have walked with us and answer our calls…this day and in days to come…and honor you …


So my wish to you all today is that you feed the light, with an understanding of the darkness…the shadows… use that knowledge to move forward and into a better space of mind, body and soul… and remember we are in control of the energies…the things that can affect us… be a positive to a world filled with negatives…and let yourself outshine all the shadows…and stop to think…which one will you feed? Many blessings to you and yours…
And May Your day be filled with blessings from this moment and beyond. And today ask yourselves… Which Wolf is it that You are Feeding?

A Medicine Wheel Totem Teaching – the Raven and the Snake

The circle, no beginning and no end …the continuing journey of our soul from conception to birth to life to death an infinite loop of energy and influence. Birds build nests in circles, the wind send it’s breath through on swirling breezes through the trees. Fire dances and leaps twisting in circles as it reaches out from its point of origin to snap at what is before it. Water which is life will circle in currents swirling as it moves over the earth. The Great Mother Earth herself is round traveling in a circle around Grandfather Sun. All are examples of the circle, no beginning, no end, continually evolving with us as we walk the human, teaching us as we journey on our paths through life.

Thus is the same of the Medicine Wheel, sharing teachings that allow us to understand and shed insights to the purpose of our existence and relevance with all things Sacred. Keeping this in mind I will share with you the teachings I have been given over the years and how they can not only enrich our lives, but strengthen our being.

The Medicine Wheel as I was taught teaches us the four parts of who we are. Beginning with the North which represents the Mental aspect, to the South that represents the Emotional aspect, and to the East sits the Spiritual aspect and West Representing the Physical aspect of self. In order to be healthy we must learn to understand and balance all of these aspects. It is comparable to the Zodiac and Chinese Zodiac in astrology in that it is also divided into sections of birth months with the totems of creature, plant, mineral, elemental and more giving us the insight into who we walk with as we are born into this world. This does not mean that the sign or totems that we are born under are the only ones that will walk with us through our lifetime. It simply means that we often have the strengths and traits of our birth totems.

So let us begin with the period of the Raven/Crow Birth Totem from September 22/23 to October 22/23

The Time of Leaves and Harvest
Animal: Raven or Crow
Plant: Mullein
Mineral: Jasper
Color: Brown or Blue
Spirit Keeper: Grizzly Bear
Power Direction: West
Element: Air
Elemental Clan: Butterfly
Keeper of Sacred Law

Raven shows itself reminding us to believe in the impossible, reach for what we feel is unattainable and we will see just what it is we are looking for, what we have been asking for as long as we are willing to accept it. The truth is before us, we simply have to be open to it. Raven rewards us with a like past the every day illusions that we create as humans… Raven will bring you the story we have not been open enough to understand and see in truths. Be strong, have Faith and remember within all things are lessons and positives.

Magical …Mystical.. Slipping to time beyond time … Often I hear people say, where are the miracles, where is the magic, and I tell them it is but at your fingertips if you will but open your eyes! We need to remember that we all have abilities and they are all unique. yet with saying that we are all part of the puzzle and without us, life would not be complete. Remember that the next time you look into a mirror, or start to doubt what and who you are. Embrace yourselves in positives, and if you don’t, the Raven will pop in and start squawking at yah until you do.

Raven is here to tell us that we are exactly where we need to be at the precise moment in time. We are also being shown things that are in and around our Sacred Hoops are reflecting back to us what we need to learn about ourselves in order to move in positive motion ahead on our paths.

Raven teaches us about rebirth, recovery, renew and recycling, self reflection and healing our inner spiritual. Shine our light into the dark as we transition in to the change we are facing. Open our thought process to help us understand that there needs to be balance between light and the dark … that one does not occur without the other. To know one is to know the other, to understand them is to balance self.

Raven teaches us to listen closer to the world of spirit, for they are guiding us forward, helping us to remember what is important, what is sacred. That our souls can not take the material with us as we move and transition through life, but rather that it is the intangible things that imprint on us and we imprint on others that are most important.
Allow that magic to spread to your soul and enlighten your spiritual.

The Next Totem to fall on the Wheel is the Snake Birth Totem October 23/24 to November 21/22.

The Time of Frost
Animal: Snake
Plant: Thistle
Mineral: Copper
Color: Orange or Violet
Spirit Keeper: Grizzly Bear
Power Direction: West
Element: Water
Elemental Clan: Frog
Wisdom – Healing – Symbol of Eternity

Snake Medicine is all about learning to balance it within our lives. So what does that mean to us as human? Well for today to speaks to making our way through the day by depending on all our senses and understanding that this movement is part of our human experience. To make sure we use our time wisely and not waste it on frivolous negativity. Things happen for a reason and it is up to each of us to decide how it impacts and imprints on our lives.
Snake Is a difficult teacher at times, and one that is not easy to master. Lessons that Snake brings with it are of life cycles and change, remembering as we grow we shed and transform into new energies and new experiences. Snake also teaches us about poison and that we need to be able to rid ourselves of the toxins that can be placed within our Sacred Hoops or learn how to use that poison in positive ways or it can kill our spirit, or balance needed to walk a good life. The choice is up to us.

Snake can be a hard teacher. His lessons involve a transmutation of the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Snake symbolizes this cycle with the shedding of his skin. We learn to the whole energy of life, the cosmic consciousness and have the willingness to experience anything without resistance. It is also about the poisons that we might take in. Those poisons can be eaten or ingested in some way but they also may be integrated into our lives. The goal is to not let the poisons taint our body or spirit.

Since Snakes can shed they teach us about the levels of our human, of our spirituality, our experiences. It is time to seek our inner knowledge before moving ahead with decisions. It is time to coil and go within to make sure we are well prepared before we strike out.
Snake also reminds us as it makes its way across the Great Mother Earth, to ground ourselves, to use our energy wisely and not to rely on primal instincts of lashing out. For at times it is more empowering to hold back and use that knowledge that energy in wise ways. At other times it is best to strike and seize the moment with a precision and quickness. Snakes often retreat long before biting defensively because they sense that it may cause consequences/damage to others and drain you of healing energy.

Snake is also very old and powerful healing medicine. Once harnessed, Snake will help you to position yourself carefully so that you will trust your gut when making important decisions.

Until Next time, live in the moment and breathe in all the beauty life shares with us all, for we Are All Related!

Hummingbird brings back Tobacco as shared by bear Medicinewalker

hummingbirdtobacco plant
Long ago, when all people and animals spoke the same language, there was only one tobacco plant in all the world. From far and wide they come for their tobacco. All was well, until the greedy Dagul’ku geese stole the plant and flew far to the south with it where they guarded it night and day. Before long the people and animals began to suffer greatly because the tobacco was gone.

One such person was a beloved Elder woman who had become very ill, so thin and weak that it was felt by all that she would die soon, and could only be saved by their Sacred tobacco and it disturbed them all that they could not provide what was needed. So it was decided that they should hold a council and make a plan on how to retrieve the tobacco that had been taken from them. They all agreed that the animals should be sent to see if they could get it back.

One by one, the animals all tried to get the plant, but each time they were seen by the Dagul’ku geese and could not reach the Sacred tobacco plant. From the largest to the smallest, the Four Leggeds failed. Then one among them, the Mole decided he should be the one that he would go. Everyone thought this to be a good idea since he would tunnel under the ground to the plant and be able to get it back. So off he went tunneling ever closer to the Sacred tobacco plant. However the Dagul’ku geese were waiting for him for with their keen sense of hearing they heard him underneath as he was digging his tunnel and they waited at the plant for him to come out. As soon as he raised his head above ground the Dagul’ku geese attacked him and he went back to the village without the Sacred plant.

The mood within the council was very somber after that. None could think of any way to get the Sacred tobacco plant away from the greedy Dagul’ku geese. No one wanted to go only to be attacked and sent back in defeat.

As the Hummingbird sat listening to all of the plans she had come up with one of her own. She boldly arose in front of the council and told them all that she could retrieve the Sacred plant. They all looked at her and laughed, “How could you do this, you are so small? How could you get to the Sacred plant past the Dagul’ki geese? She held her ground and told them that she knew she could do it and if they wanted they could test her. So they pointed to the middle of the meadow, they showed her a plant that all could see and said to her, “Go, sit on that plant, but do not let us see you getting there.”

No sooner than the words had been spoken then they all could see the little Hummingbird sitting atop the plant in the meadow. And then again before their very eyes she disappeared again only to reappear within the council circle with not one of them having seen her go or return. The all sat Stunned at the feat and skill she had shown them all and it was soon agreed to give this little warrior a chance. She wasted no time flying off straight to the Sacred plant, right under the noses of the Dagul’ki geese. She flew right up to the plant without them even suspecting her being there. Quick as a wink she used her long beak to cut off the top of the plant that had a few leaves and the seeds, then off she flew straight back to the council circle.

By this time the Elder woman was thought to have died, but smoke from the Sacred tobacco plant was blown into her nostrils and with a cry of “Tsa’lu”, she opened her eyes and regained her strength.

From that day forward, all looked with favor and respect to the little Hummingbird who managed to out wit the Dagul’ku geese to return the Sacred tobacco plant back for all to use.

“Orange Dragonflies” from Cross Roads: The Beginning of a Brand New Day by Jonny Lipford. Released: 2008. Available at https://www.jonnylipfordmusic.com/

Even Batman Needs a Break Now and Then…

So what does he do, cause we all can’t be on Super Hero mode all of the time? Well he steps into Bruce Wayne’s shoes to be human again … Even Superman has his Kryptonite and takes a break by walking in Clark Kent’s life. So now to the question at hand…why is it so hard for us as real humans to do the same, to remember to breathe, to stop to feed our souls even if just for a day or two? Because we forget, we get so caught up in the human condition of taking care of every one and every thing that we forget about our self.

Take off the Super Hero suit, you know we all have one… go ahead you might as well admit it… Whether it is a doctor, a lawyer, a shoemaker or an Indian Chief as the saying goes, or something like it… anyway take it off for the moment and just be you. So that is what I did yesterday… I took off my imaginary Super Hero suit, I stepped out into the world quietly just for me and me alone. No computers, no phone, no tv… just me and the world.

Living in a small town not everything we want or need is easily purchased so I decided to take a run downstate since I had yet to replace one of my aquariums that was leaking. I also had made up my mind to stop in Barnes and Nobles to touch and smell real books and magazines… you know the things that we used to get or borrow from the library before the age of computers. Nothing like holding the newest comic book, the latest Best Seller or even a familiar favorite novel in your hands and experiencing it like it was the first time. I was actually surprised by the number of people that were there since I haven’t been in one for a couple of years. It was pure nerdy bliss.

So my second stop was an aquarium/pet shop, you know the old school type, The kind that are in the family for generations and not set up like a fast food joint. Since I had been in the business in my younger years, I love to go into places that aren’t driven by counter set ups and endless rows of dog food bags, or aquariums that are stacked to the ceiling, there is something more real about them… they are all unique, old school.

I found what I was looking for and was speaking with the owner, I had walked around the store and it flooded my mind with good memories of all the creatures I had experienced so long ago. Together the owner and I found we had shared many business acquaintances and friends over the years. I listened as he told me who had sold their businesses, who had passed it to other family members, who had closed their doors and even who had passed away. He shook my hand as I started to leave, and for whatever reason he blurted out words telling me he was facing cancer again and asked me to keep him in my prayers. I told him I would and gave him a hug before I departed.

After making those two stops I was prepared to head home when I realized that I not eaten in my rush to leave in the morning so I decided to treat myself to a steak and salad and stopped in at Logan’s Roadhouse. I had a great meal, was not rushing anything, harassed and had fun with some fellow diners and wait staff, and had a nice discussion with the manager. When I was walking out, two very distinguished looking gentlemen were coming in. I had my batman sweatshirt on and one of them looked and said, “Look there is Bat Girl and she is holding the door open for us. Thank you so much.” He laughed a little and told me to have a great day. A laugh… a smile… what a difference it makes when we are in our best human suits eh?

I then settled in for the drive back home. As I drove it rained, sleeted, snowed and for about five minutes father Sky even gave me some sunlight. I saw hawks, deer, some interesting advertisements, and flocks of birds raced along side my truck. At one point as one of the flocks flew alongside me it was as if time stood still. The birds twisted and turned flying up and down all together in a single unit, working together to draft and catch the air current. My thought was wow how amazing is that? If only we could as humans do the same.

When my mind came back from thoughts I heard a song on the radio about life and how we need to remember we are experiencing it and I smiled at life’s synchronicities if we would let our guard down just a smidge and see what is being shared with us to help us move along on our paths.

I did what I needed to do, I revitalized myself, took time for that extra cuppa, talked and laughed with strangers, ate a good meal, imprinted on the world as just me, a little old bear. I enjoyed myself, I took off my cape for a day so I could face the next time it needs to go back on.

So that is my wish for you all today, to take some time out to hang up your capes, to become you again. To remember just how amazing life is, how it can be if we make ourselves understand we are all humans that have the opportunity to make choices that can positively impact our life and those around us. Yup, that is right …it is Choice whether we are walking in positives or stepping in the crap of negativity. Sometimes all it takes is a moment to hang your cape up for the day, go for it you are worth it.

the Gift of an Eagle Feather…as shared by bear Medicinewalker

In the beginning the Creator gave to the Four Legged’s and Winged Ones wisdom and knowledge and the power to talk to humans. Each creature was sent to tell the people that he showed himself through them. They would teach a chosen people of all lands the sacred songs and dances as well as rituals, prayers and lore. All things that would assist the humans to walk good healthy and balanced lives.

The creature that was most loved by the Creator was the Eagle for they bring with them the story of life. In the beginning the Eagle would only lays two eggs, and all living things in the world are divided into two. There is man and woman or male and female and this is true with all of life and nature here on the planet. All things are able to have children of two kinds so that life may continue. Man has two eyes, two hands, two feet and he has a body and soul, substance and shadow.

Through our eyes we can see pleasant and unpleasant scenes, through our nostrils we are able to smell good and bad odors, with our ears we can hear beautiful music or hear words that can make us sad. Our thoughts are divided between good and bad. Our right hands are sometimes used for bad, such as war or striking a person in anger. Yet our left hand which is nearest to our hearts are full of kindness. Our right feet may lead us to the wrong paths, but our left ones always guide us to the right way. And so it goes there is daylight and darkness, summer and winter, peace and war, and life and death.

In order for us to understand and remember this lesson of life, we should look to the great eagle the favorite Winged one of the Creator. Thus the eagle feather is divided into two parts one part light the other dark. This represents daylight and darkness, summer and winter, peace and war, and life and death. So that you may remember what I have shared with you look to the favored Winged One the Eagle, for his feathers will remind you of the story of life itself.

A feather isn’t just something that falls out of the sky from a bird, it is a gift to us that symbolizes trust, honor, strength, wisdom, power, freedom and even more personal things. It can be an answer to a question, or a blessing from an Ancestor or message from some one that has passed. To be given one of these is an honor, a blessings and a privilege, it is one of the most rewarding and highest honor that the universe can share with you.

So try and recall what I have shared with you. For it is YOU and only You who will choose the path in life you will follow — the good way, or the wrong way.

“Join Me as I continue the Sacred Hoop Project into this Year 2017 “the year of Atonement”

Eagle Spirit by Steven Rushingwind available at http://www.steverushingwind.com/ and I tunes


I read a comment from someone on a friend’s Facebook page today that spoke to her truths. I then read a response from someone else to her post and felt compelled to write some words to address what he was speaking to and what many across the globe are holding as their truth at this time.

I understand the frustration, the anger… and insight. Many of us feel what you are feeling. When I look at America and where it began, and where it is today… I see a lot of bloodshed, terror and people who have struggled and still struggle today. I also see centuries of hate and bigotry, and when it all began people coming from other places to our shores fighting to get a piece of it.

We sit and argue because President Trump has done what many couldn’t or would not do… he pulled off the rug on what has been swept under it for a very long time. What was underneath is that we have not grown as people who wanted to put blinders on us all, or that we have not progressed with humanity as they would like us to think. We are no longer using “Political Correctness” Which is fine by me… I thought not dealing with emotions would eventually cause a powder keg anyway… and oh look it has done just that.

However the question of “Who are Americans?” we are the same people that our Ancestors were, people who are struggling for their own personal desires. So have we learned anything?

Well lets take a short look at this, my Ancestors where the Original People, and we welcomed everyone in… to be followed by my Ancestors being stripped of all they owned, all of their way of life, they were lied to over and over by the government and still are today. It took until Native American Free Exercise of Religion Act of 1993 To Assure Religious Freedom to Native Americans. AND NATIVE AMERICANS WERE the Original People in what is now considered the United States. Think about that for a moment… everyone else could practice religion any way they wanted to… but the Native Americans could not.

There will always be people who hold hate, racism, and other negatives within them. As will there always be people who harm others, war with others. Who says it is right for the United States to involve themselves in other countries battles when they have not been able to achieve a peaceful and positive solutions to their own problems? So put yourself in the place of immigrants seeking a better life or immigrants wanting to lash out at the power that has destroyed their own homes in their own countries… and I am not saying they are right anymore than I am saying we are right. I am simply pointing out that we can look from our point of view, their point of view and that what lies in between the two is often the cold hard truth of the matter.

So my point is this…. What is fair? Fair should be that we find our Humanity again, that we take care of our own yards before stepping into others. Fair should be that every human has a right to practice their own way of life, even when it does not line up with others beliefs. We all are born with free will and have the ability to choose.

We all need to put the swords down verbal or otherwise if they harm others, they are weapons to show superiority, they are of Ego stepping in. Think about it, if we all spent the time and energy that we do spewing and acting out in negatives …caring for self, caring for others, caring for the Great Mother Earth… perhaps we would find our compassion and humanity once again. Perhaps we could be happier people…. Yup perhaps…

Spiritual and Totem Insights for the Day – Beaver

So the Beaver stops in again today showing us that we can build whatever reality we want to for ourselves. reminding us that what we put out into the world is often what comes back. So step lightly, build strongly, and stay in a positive state of mind. Be Precise in our thoughts, words and deeds as the Universe will answer in ways that often we can not even fathom, so keep it inline with the highest good for yourself and others around you.

Beaver tells us to step outside the negative cycles and break them by moving through them in positive ways, respectful ways, with humility and gratefulness… the way our Ancestral Teachings were given to us… Keep to the honest and loving ways we were taught as young ones, find your compassion and humanity again and make it stronger.

Beaver shares that it is time to build our dreams into reality teaching us that we need to remember to rely on self, but in the process not to loose the sense of family that leads us to being an important part of community. Traditions and culture both help to build the strong foundations of who we are as individuals.

Do not be afraid to push and build your dreams into reality. Beaver reminds us to be creative, use the strong foundations that have been laid into place and grow from that. Expand your thoughts, your abilities enabling you to grow into a new sense of being. Clear the old and replace it with newer and stronger ties reinforcing who we are and where we came from.

Beaver will teach us if we allow it to, when to build up the walls to protect and rest, but also teaches us to remember to clean and change as we need to, flowing with the patterns of life. Adaptability so we do not get forced into situations we should not or do not want to be in. Always look at alternatives for there are many ways to go about things.

Beaver reminds us that it is good to be creative, to stay busy …but to also remember teamwork gets the job done quicker at times. So stop for a moment to catch your breath and look at what is going on in your life at the moment, and move forward in a positive way, utilizing all the tools and assets that have been placed in front of you, remembering that all parts of life are needed to do so.



I am bear Medicinewalker and I am dedicated to Educating and sharing the lessons, teachings and culture I have been taught by my Elders and journey with the World. It is not enough merely to learn the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth.
