The plucked string cannot help but sing. The joy of its resonance is its core … its heart … its spirit.
You are like that plucked string, the Native Elders say. Because you are present on Mother Earth, you expand the harmony of all that is around you. The music of your spirit becomes part of the story that you tell … that is told around you … that connects you to all Creation.
The stories of the elders are part of the harmony of life, and acknowledgment. The music of words, of voices raised in thanksgiving, in sharing, in memories is richer because you are present.
Your ears hear … your heart vibrates in ways that no other being ever created has heard … has sung. You are unique!
As you listen … really listen … to the stories around you, the power in their telling connects with your very essence. Their strengths awaken your heart, engage your thoughts. As you open your being to these songs and stories, you honor their time and place … and in your act of honor the Sacred Grandfather of Respect — the Sixth Sacred Principle — manifests.
Respect marks the path of the Sacred Medicine Wheel. As your feet follow that path you are truly … grounded … in your purpose. Your every thought … every word … every action … resonates with your True Purpose.
Consider this week’s quote:
The Elders teach that your life becomes your song. Your stories … your songs … connect with the stories of those around you.
Do you know your story?
Your heart does. Your spirit does.
A beautiful way to find the resonance of the strings of your heart is through the Journey: 30 Day Guided Experience. In the teachings of the Elders, connect with your deepest heart … the center of your song. With simple actions, discover the vibration of your creation.
When you honor your own story, you follow the path of respect.
You are a gift to the world!
Live on Purpose … Change the World!
