Native American Leadership Guidelines – Fit For The Golden Age

aby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
at the beginnings of this month I shared in my article Native American wisdom for the collective awakening process, that it might be time for us to make ourselves familiar with some guidelines and rules, that can lead the human collective into the Golden Age of Aquarius. A leading voice in the movement of educating people from the western culture in the Native American ways of life, was the Sioux Chief “Standing Bear”. He became a leader on the forefront of the progressive movement, that aims to preserve Native American heritage and sovereignty. His wisdom remains as part guidance for us today and for many collective steps to come..

 1) Praise, flattery, exaggerated manners and fine, high-sounding words were no part of Lakota politeness. Excessive manners were put down as insincere, and the constant talker was considered rude and thoughtless. Conversation was never begun at once, or in a hurried manner.

2) Children were taught that true politeness was to be defined in actions rather than in words. They were never allowed to pass between the fire and the older person or a visitor, to speak while others were speaking, or to make fun of a crippled or disfigured person. If a child thoughtlessly tried to do so, a parent, in a quiet voice, immediately set him right.

3) Silence was meaningful with the Lakota, and his granting a space of silence before talking was done in the practice of true politeness and disregardful of the rule that ‘thought comes before speech.’…and in the midst of sorrow, sickness, death or misfortune of any kind, and in the presence of the notable and great, silence was the mark of respect… strict observance of this tenet of good behavior was the reason, no doubt, for his being given the false characterization by the white man of being a stoic. He has been judged to be dumb, stupid, indifferent, and unfeeling.

4) We did not think of the great open plains, the beautiful rolling hills, the winding streams with tangled growth, as ‘wild’. Only to the white man was nature a ‘wilderness’ and only to him was it ‘infested’ with ‘wild’ animals and ‘savage’ people. To us it was tame. Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery.n5) With all creatures of the earth, sky and water was a real and active principle. In the animal and bird world there existed a brotherly feeling that kept the Lakota safe among them. And so close did some of the Lakota’s come to their feathered and furred friends that in true brotherhood they spoke a common tongue.

6) This concept of life and its relations was humanizing and gave to the Lakota an abiding love. It filled his being with the joy and mystery of living; it gave him reverence for all life; it made a place for all things in the scheme of existence with equal importance to all.

7) It was good for the skin to touch the earth
, and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred earth… the old Indian still sits upon the earth instead of propping himself up and away from its life giving forces. For him, to sit or lie upon the ground is to be able to think more deeply and to feel more keenly. He can see more clearly into the mysteries of life and come closer in kinship to other lives about him.
8) Everything was possessed of personality, only differing from us in form. Knowledge was inherent in all things. The world was a library and its books were the stones, leaves, grass, brooks, and the birds and animals that shared, alike with us, the storms and blessings of earth. We learned to do what only the student of nature learns, and that was to feel beauty. We never railed at the storms, the furious winds, and the biting frosts and snows. To do so intensified human futility, so whatever came we adjusted ourselves, by more effort and energy if necessary, but without complaint.

9) …the old Lakota was wise. He knew that a man’s heart, away from nature, becomes hard; he knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans, too. So he kept his children close to nature’s softening influence.

10) Civilization has been thrust upon me and it has not added one whit to my love for truth, honesty, and generosity.Lakota-Dear Ones, I hope this guidelines for human life, from the Native American Sioux Chief “Standing Bear”,help you manifest your Golden Age and much more…  I hope you are all about to discover what that means for you and your path!!
Love and Blessings!

From “Calling the Animals” to the Lion’s Gate : A Journey in Raising Consciousness

264467 african animals

Dear Friends,
today is the peek of the  Lion’s Gate 8/8/8… a most important start-gate in this amazing year of change.A chance for re-connection to our authentic personal power and the excess to divine abundance from within.
It’s a good day to  spend some time in solitude resting, contemplating the beauty and abundance already in our life. A day to lay low and allow your physical body to drink from the endless flow of divine light, that is purring in from source especially intense today.

Use the chance to consciously align yourself with the next step of human evolution into the Golden Age of Aquarius!! A world of experienced singularity within the oneness!
Blessings! Edith

In this period of 2015 we are most certainly in a Wave of powerful transformational energy.  Our lives and our Reality is being changed at a very fast pace and in ways that we are often still coming to terms with. I think that the most recent wave of changes has been the most definitive and also maybe the most surprising.
It has to do with our fellow citizens on the Earth.  The Animals.  Quite simply put, the Earth can ascend no further unless we make peace with the Animal Kingdom.  We have to take into OUR consciousness the fact that in a Fifth Dimensional World we are all connected and related, and that means that we can no longer abuse and destroy without acknowledging that it is ourselves that we are abusing and destroying.This awakening, and this recognition, and ultimately this raising of consciousness has been centered on Africa.  Why?  Well, for several reasons.  Probably the most evident is that Africa is the only continent that still has a large wild life population, but which is now under extreme threat.  Secondly, Africa is the continent that is the focus of the Sirius Project, which is the clear guidance and love of the Sirian Master Teachers from the Sirius Star System. That influence extends from Egypt in the North to South Africa in the South.

Solstice June 21st and “Calling the Animals 

At this year’s Solstice celebrations, I was guided by Archangel Michael to call for a Global Meditation on “Calling the Animals”.  The purpose of this was to call the animals to us and to express to them our desire that they should come with us into the New Earth and be part of our New Earth Reality.
I did not realize at that point how crucial it was to the whole Ascension project that would make this expression of intent to our fellow brothers and sisters on the Earth!
Further, I also was shown how the Animals are not inferior forms of life, but are also “Star Seeds”, gifts from the Creative Beings who are our Galactic and Cosmic Family.  If we could not honor our Animal Family, how could we honor the Galactic and Cosmic Family who had gifted these Life Forms to our Planet.
As it happened, I was also invited to attend a Ceremony in the far North of South Africa at an ancient Stone Circle.  This site was located on the “Nile” meridian and also on the borders of South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique.  Just to the North was the Kruger National Park, our biggest wildlife sanctuary, and beyond that, Zimbabwe.
And so it was that I was privileged to be with a large group of people as we “Called the Animals” from the Sacred Circle that we had  created around the main standing stones. I remember quite clearly calling the Lion of the North.  In our circle, North was towards Kruger and Zimbabwe, home of Cecil the Lion who was to be a major player in this unfolding wave of energy.
I did specifically call the White Lions as the Spirit Keepers of Africa, to be the guardians of the North.  It was also interesting, that our Ceremony was visited by two large Crows, who as messengers of the Spirit world carried our intentions into the Spirit Realms.

And so it was that the message was received by the Spirit Keepers of Africa, and the Royal Lions of Sirius.

Now, perhaps I should explain how very important Lions are in the Sirian teachings.
In the creation story, the Prime Creator known as Amun-Ra, gives birth to two beings who are called Shu and Tefnut.  They are the original Masculine and Feminine energies, and Tefnut who is the Feminine, is always depicted as a Lioness Headed Woman.  Lion/ess energy is Sacred to the Sirians, it is a manifestation of the Divine Creative Essence.
And so it is that in Africa, where the Sirius energy is strongest on the Planet, that the Lions came to be the Spirit Keeper of the Continent.  And it was there, in the Spirit Council of the White Lions, that our call was heard.  And so it was decided that a Noble Lion would be needed to bring to Humanity the message of the Lions and the call to “Family” in the New Earth.
And so it was that Cecil, the noble Lion of Hwange, was called to carry the role of the Sacred Path of the Lion King.

Now while this is a beautiful story, it also does not hide the fact that every day Lions are hunted, poached and killed in Africa, and that the death of  Cecil was not a “demanded sacrifice” but an illustration of what is befalling all lions in Africa, and ultimately, all animals on Earth.
The purpose of the very public killing of Cecil the Lion was to bring the energy of the Lion into the Collective Consciousness just at the very moment when the Sun was in Leo and we were approaching a very crucial Ascension Moment in the Lions  Gate of 2015, the 8/8/8.
It was to make Humanity aware of what was happening to the lions and to the animals on the Earth.  To remind Humanity of their mission to love and hold the animals and their purpose of recreating the Garden on the New Earth so that All Life Forms could be present.
And it was to make us aware that our Star Nation brothers and sisters, especially the Sirians, were here present with us in this work.  The powerful energies of the Lion’s Gate are assisting the Planet through the Gateways of Time and into the Higher Dimensions that are guarded by the Royal Sirian Lions of Yesterday and Tomorrow.

leadsiri8/8/8 : The Lion’s Gate and Beyond 

The Lion’s Gate of 2015 on the 8th of August is the culmination of an Ascension Wave that will lift the planet into the highest frequencies of Luminosity that have yet been achieved on Earth!
On the 8th of August, the Royal Sirian Lions will be on hand in the Spirit Realm to be the assistants at this wonderful moment of Ascension and Birthing for the Planet. We can be sure too, that Cecil the Lion will be there in Soul/Spirit form, to watch over the final stages of the story that he had such a part in creating.
From this moment forward, the Animals will step into their sovereignty and will become our fellow citizens of the New Earth.
This will create a radical shift in consciousness that will challenge all that we believe about love and compassion and the way in which we embody these essential energies.
We will be required to shift from a society that believes that Humanity is central and that everything on the Planet is simply “resources” to be consumed, to a society that acknowledges the Unity of a Family of Living Beings sharing a common home and a common destiny.
This is the Great Shift we need to make if the Earth is to continue to ascend into her true Destiny as a Planet of Love and Compassion.

10 Quotes From a Oglala Lakota Chief That Will Make You Question Everything About Our Society

1f15bbe4-9c2e-4dc4-b307-88b5967819b1

By Wisdom Pills / wisdompills.com


Luther Standing Bear was an Oglala Lakota Sioux Chief who, among a few rare others such as Charles EastmanBlack Elk and Gertrude Bonnin occupied the rift between the way of life of the Indigenous people of the Great Plains before, and during, the arrival and subsequent spread of the European pioneers. Raised in the traditions of his people until the age of eleven, he was then educated at the Carlisle Indian Industrial Boarding School of Pennsylvania, where he learned the english language and way of life. (Though a National Historical Landmark, Carlisle remains a place of controversy in Native circles.)
Like his above mentioned contemporaries, however, his native roots were deep, leaving him in the unique position of being a conduit between cultures. Though his movement through the white man’s world was not without “success” — he had numerous movie roles in Hollywood — his enduring legacy was the protection of the way of life of his people.

By the time of his death he had published 4 books and had become a leader at the forefront of the progressive movement aimed at preserving Native American heritage and sovereignty, coming to be known as a strong voice in the education of the white man as to the Native American way of life. Here, then, are 10 quotes from the great Sioux Indian Chief known as Standing Bear that will be sure to disturb much of what you think you know about “modern” culture.
