Blessed Sacred Tobacco Woman,
Take your passion and make it happen !
Energy in Motion aka Emotion is the most difficult, but if that solar plexus power can be risen upon the spinal stalk then that vision will come to pass.
You have the fire.
Each and every cultural group has been decimated and we all suffer the wounds as a result.
I will never forget the plight of the Native American in the movie Little Big Man.
I come from a Polish background, and all my life I got Dumb Pollack !
That's simply because Hitler started the war by invading Poland when my father was 17yrs. old.
Until we each understand that variety is the spice of life and each flower, toe, finger and tongue is connected and is supposed to complement eachother then we are not going to progress.
I too dealt with fear, anger, rage and as you know well the " Puritan work ethic " was just to fear peasant people with death and hell to get them to slave for the rich.
Each soul irregardless of socio-economic status is precious.
Yet, there are organized forces who take land, time, money and wealth for their own soulless and greedy and hateful purposes.
This civilization honors outer beauty and wealth, yet that is transient.
The long histories of your peoples handed down through oral tradition must be preserved.
Your vision quest is doable.
It is tall and steep, yet your grit and determination to heal others while healing yourself will prevail.
As my wife says, take the good and leave the bad from each tradition.
No one tradition has all the answers, and religion is a poor attempt to view life.
There is but one great spirit and no human language will ever define it.
Your vision will come to pass.
P.S. Connie is of the turtle clan
