THE IROQUOIS THANKSGIVING ADDRESS

“Ohenton Kariwahtekwen”

GREETINGS TO THE NATURAL WORLD

By Chief Jake Swamp

THE PEOPLE

Today we have gathered and we see that the cycles of life continue. We have been given the duty to live in balance and harmony with each other and all living things. So now, we bring our minds together as one as we give greetings and thanks to each other as people.  We give thanks for our family,

friends, and fellow human beings…

Now our minds are one.


THE EARTH MOTHER

We are all thankful to our Mother, the Earth, for she gives us all that we need for life. She supports our feet as we walk about upon her. It gives us joy that she continues to care for us as she has from the beginning of time. To our mother, we send greetings and thanks.

Now our minds are one.


THE WATERS

We give thanks to all the waters of the world for quenching our thirst and providing us with strength. Water is life. We know its power in many forms-waterfalls and rain, mists and streams, rivers and oceans. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to the spirit of Water.

Now our minds are one.


THE FISH

We turn our minds to the all the Fish life in the water. They were instructed to cleanse and purify the water. They also give themselves to us as food. We are grateful that we can still find pure water. So, we turn now to the Fish and send our greetings and thanks.

Now our minds are one.


THE PLANTS

Now we turn toward the vast fields of Plant life. As far as the eye can see, the Plants grow, working many wonders. They sustain many life forms. With our minds gathered together, we give thanks and look forward to seeing Plant life for many generations to come.

Now our minds are one.

 

THE FOOD PLANTS

With one mind, we turn to honor and thank all the Food Plants we harvest from the garden. Since the beginning of time, the grains, vegetables, beans and berries have helped the people survive. Many other living things draw strength from them too. We gather all the Plant Foods together as one and send them a greeting of thanks.

Now our minds are one.

THE MEDICINE HERBS

Now we turn to all the Medicine herbs of the world. From the beginning they were instructed to take away sickness. They are always waiting and ready to heal us. We are happy there are still among us those special few who remember how to use these plants for healing. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to the Medicines and to the keepers of the Medicines.

Now our minds are one.

THE ANIMALS

We gather our minds together to send greetings and thanks to all the Animal life in the world. They have many things to teach us as people. We are honored by them when they give up their lives so we may use their bodies as food for our people. We see them near our homes and in the deep forests. We are glad they are still here and we hope that it will always be so.

Now our minds are one

THE TREES

We now turn our thoughts to the Trees. The Earth has many families of Trees who have their own instructions and uses. Some provide us with shelter and shade, others with fruit, beauty and other useful things. Many people of the world use a Tree as a symbol of peace and strength. With one mind, we greet and thank the Tree life.

Now our minds are one.


THE BIRDS

We put our minds together as one and thank all the Birds who move and fly about over our heads. The Creator gave them beautiful songs. Each day they remind us to enjoy and appreciate life. The Eagle was chosen to be their leader. To all the Birds-from the smallest to the largest-we send our joyful greetings and thanks.

Now our minds are one.


THE FOUR WINDS

We are all thankful to the powers we know as the Four Winds. We hear their voices in the moving air as they refresh us and purify the air we breathe. They help us to bring the change of seasons. From the four directions they come, bringing us messages and giving us strength. With one mind, we send our greetings and thanks to the Four Winds.

Now our minds are one.


THE THUNDERERS

Now we turn to the west where our grandfathers, the Thunder Beings, live. With lightning and thundering voices, they bring with them the water that renews life. We are thankful that they keep those evil things made by Okwiseres underground. We bring our minds together as one to send greetings and thanks to our Grandfathers, the Thunderers.

Now our minds are one.

 

THE SUN

We now send greetings and thanks to our eldest Brother, the Sun. Each day without fail he travels the sky from east to west, bringing the light of a new day. He is the source of all the fires of life. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to our Brother, the Sun.

Now our minds are one.

 

GRANDMOTHER MOON

We put our minds together to give thanks to our oldest Grandmother, the Moon, who lights the night-time sky. She is the leader of woman all over the world, and she governs the movement of the ocean tides. By her changing face we measure time, and it is the Moon who watches over the arrival of children here on Earth. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to our Grandmother, the Moon.

Now our minds are one.


THE STARS

We give thanks to the Stars who are spread across the sky like jewelry. We see them in the night, helping the Moon to light the darkness and bringing dew to the gardens and growing things. When we travel at night, they guide us home. With our minds gathered together as one, we send greetings and thanks to the Stars.

Now our minds are one.

 

THE ENLIGHTENED TEACHERS

We gather our minds to greet and thank the  Teachers who have come to help throughout the ages. When we forget how to live in harmony, they remind us of the way we were instructed to live as people. With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to these caring teachers.

Now our minds are one.

 

THE CREATOR

Now we turn our thoughts to the creator, or Great Spirit, and send greetings and thanks for all the gifts of Creation. Everything we need to live a good life is here on this Mother Earth. For all the love that is still around us, we gather our minds together as one and send our choicest words of greetings and thanks to the Creator.

Now our minds are one.


CLOSING WORDS……….

We have now arrived at the place where we end our words. Of all the things we have named, it was not our intention to leave anything out. If something was forgotten, we leave it to each individual to send such greetings and thanks in their own way. Now our minds are one. WE GIVE THANKS FOR YOU…

Recreating Your Physical Body – and Life Span

Summary of Brenda’s November 9, 2013 free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffmanYour assignment, if you so choose, is to create a vehicle that feels right in preparation for travels to distant places.

The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog for  http://www.LifeTapestryCreations.com: “You’re Evolving into Infant and Parent”

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” BlogTalkRadio.com show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.

Dear Ones,

Your DNA is expanding, your cells are changing and your physical body is adjusting to the new being you are creating. But perhaps there are pieces you have not known or understood.

As your cells reformulate, your appearance may shift and you will gravitate to different people, foods, habitats and living conditions.

You are hoping for a more youthful look and so it will be. Those of you wanting to live within the new earth will perhaps (your choice) extend your natural earth life. It is now fairly common for humans to live to 100 years-of-age. Something almost unheard of a generation or two ago.

If you delay your transition in this lifetime, you will not necessarily be bothered with the age deterioration you now believe probable. Someone who maintains their youthful appearance and vigor beyond 80 years of age is now considered an anomaly – such will not be so in just a few years.

Your physical being is changing more rapidly than was true a few decades ago when reaching the age of 100 was a vague possibility. Then many humans changed their diet, living conditions and health regimes.

Of course, there are those who point out that many of your current foods, particularly in the United States, are not healthy. Such is true for many. The difference is you have food to eat. In past generations, food was not necessarily plentiful. And in those parts of the world where food remains limited, longevity is not yet expected. The longevity burst of the 20th century had much to do with consistent food intake.

Your body is again shifting, but in different ways. Such is true throughout the globe, not merely in wealthier nations.

Rather than replicating cells at a lesser strength than original cells, as was true in the Old Age causing your body to deteriorate, your cells will remain strong and complete for decades longer. And just as Baby Boomers and their children shifted their diet from the meat and potatoes of their grandparents to fruits, vegetables, meat and fast food, your body will crave a new diet.

As your food tastes shift, you will discover signs here and there that your physical being is not aging as was expected when you were in your 20s. Those of you 65 or older are already noting you are not interested in sitting in your rocking chair watching the world go by. Sixty-five has become the new 40.

Even though you may not have yet acknowledged it, your body is shifting.

Learn to listen to the directives of your inner-being – and negate the jokes and belief patterns that were a natural part of your Old Age life. Do you remember your 50th birthday when many felt the need to tell you earth death was near with funeral/death decorations and jokes? All Old Age beliefs – and reality then. That reality no longer exists.

Will your gray hair return to its original color? Perhaps. But more likely is your ability to live a natural and healthy life long beyond what is now expected. A 100th birthday celebration may mean paddling a canoe though a rapidly moving river or skiing down a mountain.

As your cells shift and DNA comes alive, you will discover new skills, directions and patterns – including social interactions. Those who beat the drum of aging and limitations will not be of interest to you as you explore your new being.

Even though your food choices will shift, you will not necessarily be a vegetarian, nor wish to eat meat. And not all of you will meditate or participate in new earth gatherings. You are unique individuals with unique paths that will meet at some point in the future.

Suffice it to know, your routines will shift. You will wish to experience new places and things –  to eat different foods. As a result, you will expect to live longer.

Beliefs that pervaded your Old Age life span on earth are shifting. Some of you will transition at a younger age than others, as is true now. But that transition will be the result of inner-directives, not family or community beliefs.

Many of you believe you already decide when to exit earth. Such is true. But part of that personal control is tied to societal beliefs. You should eat this. You should be aging at this rate. You will die in this time frame. Those shoulds or directives no longer apply.

Your inner-being guidance system will re-direct your physical being in ways you cannot yet imagine.

Your cells as becoming crystalline – a more solid structure than was true of your Old Age physical bodies. And instead of receiving information and directives from a few strands of DNA, you have millions more pieces of information flowing through your being. Pieces from other lifetimes, other planets, other Universes. Your new being is the difference between a fifth grade book describing your nerve functions and a neurosurgeon’s knowledge.

You are now a self-contained computer with thousands of bits of additional information available when you feel the need to research, access, shift or change your being. You are not limited to one text, one set of beliefs or one life. You opened your being to the Universes – and all information that ever was and ever will be. And you are sharing that information with all entities throughout the Universes.

You are no longer an isolated human in a limited 3D world. You are a new being with new skills including the ability to shift your physical body if you so choose. Allow yourself to believe in yourself. And then start exploring those pieces that feel like cotton candy.

For those of you who have difficulties believing in your own physical rebirth, others will invent and share new means of allowing your body to recreate itself in joy and life, instead of fear and early earth death. So be it. Amen.
