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.

Mindfulness and choice exercise

Whatever you are doing in the now, say it to yourself out loud. If your are washing the dishes, say out loud I am washing the dishes. If you are having thoughts about washing the dishes say them out them out loud. "I hate washing the dishes " or "washing the dishes is fun." If you scratch your nose say "I am scratching my nose" Do that with everything, even feelings. "I feel down right now," or "I feel lonely right now." Pretty soon it becomes a monitoring device, a walking moving meditation. Then you can readily see what thoughts are coming up. Pretty soon you don't have to say it out loud anymore. Thoughts from actions and actions from thoughts become apparent. Once they become apparent you can make choices to change them for your well being and benefit. Or you can say I replace that thought with, this thought, or I will replace this feeling with another. Meditative Bio feed back. See if it works for you. You having nothing to loose.

I get it. It's not as tedious as I thought it was. It's a way to develop self-awareness. Through these exercises, so-to-speak, I can, or any person can set him or herself free to feel and think what he or she wants to feel or think. Great cure-all for obsessive fear and worry! Great idea for an anti-anxiety agent. Could stop depression dead in its tracks too. I call that spirituality. Yeah, I do. Why? Because I said so. :) Arrow
