My Experience with the Micmac Tribe and the Black Wolf

Recently I went on a five-day expedition to the northernmost part of Maine for a Unity College freshman initiation to meet the Aroostook Band of Micmacs. Over the course of these five days that I camped on the grounds, I visited the tribe's museum, decorated a sacred ground, canoed with the Micmac youth, talked to and weaved baskets with elders, attended a tribal council, and danced and sung with native drummers. However, my last day was most influential to me. I…

How I became Spirit Bear!

How I Became Spirit Bear!

All throughout my childhood my older brother Gary and I felt there was something different about ourselves. Something with a greater significance than we could understand as children something that would shape our adult lives, to an unimaginable degree. Growing up in the Midwest in the fifties and sixties was so much different than it is today! Back then we usually made our own toys. Whenever we would play cowboys and Indians with the neighborhood kids we…

Is this true?

I was browsing the comments on a totem meditation video when I saw some one who said she/he could read who out totem was, I decided to message her/him to see if she/he could.

This is the reply

Its an African elephant, female, named Zengana. She said you need to move forward in life, face new challenges, set new goals and dont look back. She said be careful what you listen to from others about things, and follow your own heart and intuition. When it…

Shrine to my guide

I met my guide Tipvigut a day ago(You can read about that here) and I decided to make a little shrine to her.

I grabbed a little(unused) coffee table from the lounge room and placed it in the corner of my room. I got some lavender coloured velvety material I had lying around and draped it over the wooden table. I put two polar bear figurines on top. I then got my favorite stones(Two egg…

Nature’s Lyric Symphony

Nature’s Lyric Symphony



tumbling waterfalls sing to me

liquid lyric symphony

walking in the forest

I felt an overwhelming

sense of peace

the trees stood rooted firmly

 in the earth

and  birds sang

sweet songs that never ceased...

so enraptured was I

 by this place

that I was prompted

 to dance

 with unconscious grace

and as I flung

 my arms into the air

the scent of wildflowers

wafted

 through my…

I might have met my guide?

Using this video on you-tube I was able to talk with my spirit animal guide, only I don't know if this my imagination or not, here is my recount. It would help if you listened to the meditation first to get the context that I wrote this in.

I walked along the path that was a well walked path it had high grass surrounding…

Lord Walt

Lord Walt is elusive and extremely fast.

He is camera shy but doesn't mind popping into a room to say hello to the dog and can often be seen shooting past me as I walk from one room of the house to another.

His Lordship was already resident in my home when I moved in but kept his presence secret.

With hindsight, I should've known that he lived in my cottage but, at the time, I hadn't a clue.

It was only when I saw scattered birdseed in a kitchen cupboard that I…

Shadow Totems

Shadow Totems come momentarily into our journeys to strengthen and teach us by bringing to us our fears; that we many face them for them to become instead, our strength.…

I wrote this sometime ago I hope you enjoy it!!

Hidden From View!

 They made us many promises but kept only one

They promised that they would take our land, and did

They made us treaties but they never kept one

We signed treaties with them and kept them

We dealt in good faith and we dealt with honor

They dealt in deceit, with no intention of honor

We knew nothing of similar actions, or of such dishonor

We would never dream someone to have so much…
