Hi DragonAngel, I just sent a reply to you but its lost somewhere in the ether!!!!, In my experience when we try too hard to make a connection, guess what...... zilch, zero, nothing whereas if you stay relaxed then you may be surpirsed by the outcome. Spirit guides are always there for us, but it is up to us to ask them for help or guidance, the thing to remember is that they can only guide us, at the end of the day we make the choice, it is our life to live.
Do not feel afraid of making that connection with Red Cloud, any connection either with our guides or with spirit is daunting at first but they are there to help.

Love, Light & Blessings

I'll try my best not to think about it when I wake up tomorrow morning!!

I'll also give serious thought to making that connection with Red Cloud.

Thanks for listening to me xx

PostSubject: Totem Animal Meditation exercise   Sat Apr 18, 2009 4:00 pm

Hi Lyn,

I do a guided meditation with my students which I call The Crystal Cave. I ask my students to visualise themselves walking into a the mouth of a cave, they then walk deeper into the cave until they finally reach a place where there are beautiful colours radiating from the walls. These colours are coming from crystals which are embedded in the cave walls, you are bathed in these beautiful crystal colours. Here and there you will see alcoves or rocks hollowed out so you can sit down. You sit and then you ask your totem animal to come to you. On the far side of the cave there are other larger rocks, you become aware of movement and soon you will see your totem animal start to approach you. This could be an animal, a bird, a reptile or an insect, but no matter what your totem animal is, you need have no fear of this, as it has come to help you. Remember, we do not choose our totem animals, they choose us and totem animals may change frequently, according to our needs). You may reach out and touch your animal if you want too. Do you feel soft fur, or sleek feathers? You know start to speak to your totem animal, tell them the problems and areas you need help with. Totem animals communicate telepathically so you will pick up their thoughts. Sometimes totem animals make gestures, and do not communicate. Take note of what your totem is doing as these gestures can have significance too. Even if you don't receive mental communications, all totem animals have different qualities associated with them. If you look at these qualities and associations you should see what they are trying to tell you ie that you need to be more patient, need to be more assertive etc.

When it is time to leave your meditation, your totem animals will turn and walk away from you, retreating into the depths of the crystal cavern. You then stand up and retrace your steps back to the entrance. When you step out of the cave entrance, you then start to return to consciousness. When you feel ready open your eyes, become aware of your surroundings, wiggle your toes and take a gentle stretch if you need too. Write down what animal you saw, any gestures you noticed your totem animal make and note any telepathic communications you picked up.

I use Sacred Earth Drums CD as background music, while we are doing this.
Hope this explains what I do properly, and you find it helpful. Done it in a bit of a rush for you.

Go Forward with Courage

When you are in doubt, be still and wait,
when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage,
so long as mists envelop you be still,
be still until sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
as it surely will,
then act with courage.

Hi Fluffyangel, nice to talk to you. regarding your question do we all have spirit guides then the answer is yes, and in fact we don't just have one but we have many, some are with us throughout our lives while others may come and go. Have you tried meditation - this is the best way (that i have found) to make a connection with your spirit guide/s, this may take numerous attempts but please don't give up if at first you don't succeed, it takes most people many attempts but it is well worth it in the end. If you feel a presence around you ask your spirit guide to introduce him/her self to you, ask them to do something like touch your hair or cheek. never be afraid as all spirit guides are good souls who are here to help, guide and protect you, but remember that they can not live your life for you, they can only point you in the right direction the rest as they say is up to you.
Re your statement that you are not psychic, then you may be surprised to learn that we are all psychic, have you ever known who is calling you on the phone before you've answered it, do you ever know what some one is going to say even before they have opened their mouth. As we have gotten older and as we as a human beings have developed we tend to ignore our intuition and do not spend enough quiet time to make the connection with our guides and our inner self and our psychic abilities, we all need to make that connection and still our mind, i think you will be astonished by your discoveries.

I hope all that makes sense, but if you need any clarity on anything or have anymore questions then please ask away.

Love, Light & Blessings

Hi Adrian,

So sorry to hear about your redundancy, I know how upsetting it must be for you and your family. Another friend was made redundant today so I'm going to help him sort out a CV tomorrow. If I can help you in any way, any time, please just shout.

Hi Fluffyangel, Thanks for the comments re my redundancy. Its a great story regarding the cardy, it just shows you that you do have psychic abilities. Its brill that you have found someone to set up a meditation circle - that just goes to show that it was meant to be Laughing . I loved the back massage you received following your meditation - i am convinced it was your angels giving you a helping hand (pardon the pun). Lovely talking to you and looking forward to chatting again.

Love, Light & Blessings

Evening Pat and Adrian!

Red Cloud's biog is really good! But his dad and grandad were called Red Cloud, as was a cousin and his son!!!

There is a sad incident that happened on the day of his wedding to Pretty Owl which shows what a sensitive man he was. He was also a great leader of his people.

I haven't felt any de ja vu as yet. But there were a few white men involved with the tribe, and at the end of his life he was living on a reservation and had more contact with the white man. He also spent time visiting President Grant.

It is a great read and I am getting really into it! My spine is tingling as I write this so I know 'someone' is around me!

Will let you know how I get on with the rest of the book! Might just have to order all the other NI titles I have on my Amazon wish list!!

Take care Lyn xx

Hi Lyn

Your Red Cloud book sounds really interesting and pleased you're enjoying it. Also pleased you've got back on line so soon, our Enigma came to see me yesterday and we did the polar bear meditation together at 9pm. My mate Pat also did it too, really enjoyed it, I think it's a cracking idea doing these group meditations. Have you ever read 'Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee', or seen the film (all NI actors in that)? It's excellent and a very powerful true story. There were several white men and women who helped NI's during that time. 'Trail of Tears' is also very moving, bought that book many years ago, but never got around to reading it as I never had the time. By the time I found time, I'd lost the book. Last night when I was having some healing I picked up a NI called Running Deer, still trying to find out more about him and another NI I keep seeing who's an old man with grey hair who looks like he could be Apache. Ever since I began doing those Totem animal meditations a few months ago, NI's seem to be cropping up constantly. Hope you're feeling chilled out after your break. Look forward to hearing if you get more NI occurences happening around you. :study:

Will look out for those books. The NI have some wonderful names don't they? Some of the names I have come across in this book are Wears War Bonnet, Walks As She Thinks, Pine Leaf, Pretty Owl, Man Afraid Of His Horse, and many other wonderful names!!

Maybe we could all think of an NI name we would like to be called, along the lines of the above, to do with our hobbies, opinions or phobias?!

She Who Talks With Spirits would be a good one for you Pat! I would probably be Woman Who Likes Chocolate!!

PostSubject: Red Cloud's Autobiography   Fri May 29, 2009 1:52 pm

I finished reading this book this evening. I have to say it was a fantastic read! I didn't get any sense of de ja vu, but then I suppose it was a long shot. Although there was contact with the white people, the book concentrated on Red Cloud's 'Indian Years' before he lived on the reservation.

I always knew the NI hunted and were nomadic, but to read about it from the point of view of someone who had lived it was very informative. From a modern point of view, and somewhat squeamish (!) I did find the scalpings and details of raids abit off putting, but that is the way of life they led and had always done so. And there was so much more to them as a people than that.

The book didn't really go into the spiritual beliefs. But there are others that have been recommended that I will read for that! They were accounts by Red Cloud himself about the achievements of his people, stories that had been told around camp fires and in lodges, and also some stories told by traders with the NI.

I am glad I read this and learning more about the NI way of life, but although I have learnt more about Red Cloud himself, I have to say that I don't feel any closer to him as a spirit guide.

But I always have and remain drawn to the NI people and way of life as a whole and will be reading much, much more!!!

Lyn xx
