About Me: "Wakiya" (Thunder)
I am a Tribal, Musician, Writer, Artist. I try to walk the path and have studied the tradition of the "Wisdom keepers" like Lame Deer, Fools Crow, Black Elk, and Rolling Thunder from the tribes of this region, and Lao Tzu, Buddha, Bodhidharma, Yeshua, and other enlightened ones from the many various tribes of the earth. I understand the worlds religions and belief systems, and realize the division this can cause by the lack of understanding the "real message" from the Masters. My intention, and life's prayer is to try to live in harmony with Grandmother Earth, Grandfather sky, (Nature) and "the spirit that moves in all things," and help in any way I can to build a bridge between all men and tribes so they can walk their path in a manner that will benefit themselves, the Earth and others. I open up, and ask Great Spirit, The creator, The Tao, The Universe, to work and direct healing and positive energy through me by different means, like the Flute, drums, Words, Prayer, and Touch. I try to be loving and accept others from the heart, and practice forgiveness. I honor all people, the winged one's, and four legged ones considering us all equal, not one being above another. I honor the bountiful Harvest from Mother earth in the form of plant life, water, air and herbs which sustain our oneness with her. I pray all tribes should re-unite as one, so we may protect the planet and live in harmony. Within you, without you.

Refuge in a troubled world

Sometimes inferior influences prevail in this surrounding phenomenon we call a world. Like what is described in the I-ching, hexagram number 12 "Pi" which is standstill. There are other hexagrams that are similar. Sometimes it's better to retreat into your higher self or to be still and meditate. We try to make things right when the flow isn't allowing us to. Why forge upstream. Sometimes it better to guide your canoe over to the shore and take a rest. Let the storm blow over and the clouds clear. This give us time to get out of the stream of chaotic energy surrounding us. It gives us time to center. It also gives us time to have an empty mind and relax. Get into the space of "not trying" by being what I call stress free, thought free, mind free, and body free, letting go. Going on retreat. This doesn't mean you quit growing. In fact, this gives you time to grow while everything around you is standing still or in chaos. Treat yourself nice, you deserve it. Don't let the imbalance in the world or around you take a toll. Let Great Spirit handle it. Sometimes we can be an inhabitant of the planet, but not of the world. If you get my meaning!
