SPIRIT OF THE BLACK BEAR. Click picture to read article
Many years ago the black bear came to me in a dream and it was such a clear descriptive encounter that I realized I had to embrace this animal totem. With Bear Medicine, the power of knowing has invited you to enter the silence and become acquainted with the Dream Lodge, so that your goals may become concrete realities. This is the strength of Bear.

Black Bear
Nurturing and protective
Keeper of our dreams
Spirit of inner-knowing
The bear teaches us the power of introspection
Of entering a quiet place of calmness to think
The message is to take our time
To trust we will make the right decisions
Helping us cross the path between dreams and reality
And reach our goals.

The Necessity of Forgiveness

The Necessity of Forgiveness! Click picture for articleForgiveness. It’s such a hard thing to do, but it can be so liberating to the soul. What makes it difficult for most of us to do is the way we define it. We think of forgiveness as meaning that we should say all is forgotten and things will go back to what they were.

How can you forget the unforgettable? How can you forgive the unforgivable? To enjoy the benefits of forgiveness, however, we needn’t go that far. All that’s really required is that we make the decision to move forward, to let go of the old hurts. We don’t have to condone what’s been done. What’s wrong is still wrong. We don’t have to invite the person back into our lives or even be friendly with them. What we do have to do is allow ourselves to release all the negative emotions associated with that person. As long as we hold onto the pain, we are choosing to allow that person’s past actions to continue to hurt us. We can also choose to stop letting them hurt us. That’s a definition of forgiveness that’s more doable for those of us who are less than saintly.

What if I don’t feel like forgiving others?

There are times we don’t feel like forgiving those who have wronged us or someone we love. It is easier to act our way into feeling than to feel our way into acting. Having a nature of not forgiving others brings about bitterness, and bitterness has been linked to stress-related illnesses by some medical researchers. By forgiving others, we free ourselves spiritually and emotionally. Forgiveness is an act of our own personal will, trusting God to bring emotional healing.

How can I help those struggling with forgiveness?

People who have experienced abuse, trauma, or loss need time to sort things out and let the Divine Spirit bring them to the place of forgiveness in His time. God’s timing is always the right time for each individual. The act of forgiving others is between us and the Divine. The only time we need to forgive a person face-to-face is at the moment we are asked by that person to forgive them for the hurt they have caused.

There are things we can do to help those struggling with the forgiveness of others. We can support them with encouraging words and by listening to them. Taking our time and being gentle with them will allow them to progress through the steps of forgiveness the way the Divine Spirit wants them to proceed. And most importantly pray for their healing so that they can forgive.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Perdona y olvida

Perdonar. Es una cosa dificil de hacer, pero puede ser muy liberador para el alma. Lo que lo hace dificil para la mayoria de nosotros es la manera en que lo definimos. Creemos en el perdon en el sentido de que debemos decir que todo se olvida y las cosas volveran a lo que eran.

¿Cómo se puede olvidar lo inolvidable? ¿Como se puede perdonar lo imperdonable? Para disfrutar de los beneficios del perdon, sin embargo, no tenemos que ir tan lejos. Todo lo que realmente se requiere es la decision de seguir adelante, soltar la viejas heridas. Nosotros no tenemos que tolerar lo que se ha hecho. Lo que es incorrecto sigue siendo incorrecto. No debemos invitar a la persona de nuevo a nuestras vidas, o incluso ser amigable con ellos. Lo que tenemos que hacer es permitir que se liberen todos los sentimientos negativos asociados con esa persona. Mientras mantengamos el dolor, permitimos que las acciones pasadas de esa persona nos sigan dañando. Tambien podemos optar por dejar de hacernos daño a nosotros. Esa es una definicion de perdonar que es mas real para aquellos de nosotros que tenemos poco de santos.

¿Que hago si no tengo ganas de perdonar a otros?
Hay veces que no tengo ganas de perdonar a quienes nos han hecho mal, o a alguien que amamos. Es mas facil actuar nuestra manera en el sentimiento, que sentir en nuestra manera de actuar. Tener la naturaleza de no perdonar a los demás da lugar a la amargura y la amargura se ha relacionado con enfermedades relacionadas con el estres por algunos investigadores medicos. Al perdonar a otros, nos liberamos espiritual y emocionalmente. El perdon es un acto de nuestra voluntad personal, confiando en Dios para traer sanacion emocional.

¿Como puedo ayudar a aquellos que luchan con el perdon?

Las personas que han sufrido abusos, traumas, necesitan tiempo para resolver las cosas y dejar que el Espíritu Divino los lleve al lugar del perdon en su momento. El tiempo de Dios es siempre el momento adecuado para cada individuo. El acto de perdonar a otros es entre nosotros y lo divino. La unica vez que tenemos que perdonar a una persona cara a cara, es en el momento en que esa persona nos pide que se le perdone por el daño que ha causado.

Hay cosas que podemos hacer para ayudar a aquellos que luchan con el perdon de los demas. Podemos apoyar con palabras de aliento y escuchandolos. Tomando nuestro tiempo y ser amable con ellos les permitira progresar a traves de las medidas de condonacion de la manera en que el Espíritu Divino quiere que se desarrollen. Y lo mas importante: rezar por su curacion de modo que puedan perdonar.

“El débil nunca puede perdonar. El perdon es atributo de los fuertes. “
Mahatma Gandhi

God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.

Remember Love Has Free Will!

Remember Love Has Free Will!
by Cherokee Billie

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I thought I would share with you a teaching about love. Love cannot be confined or put into one category.

“Think not that you can direct the course of Love, for Love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course” – Khalil Gibran

As a spiritual advisor in any given day I have clients call and ask, “I love this man or woman so much and I’ve never felt this way about anybody before. We have such incredible chemistry together. I don’t understand why they don’t love me like I love them. What am I doing wrong?”

The person is not doing anything wrong, it is just simply that free will is involved and if the other person does not have the same feelings, there is nothing anyone can do to make them love the other person. There is no magic spell that can cause someone to love you. If you think about it would you really want someone to love you because of a magical spell? No, you would want them to love you for you.

The more needy you feel about having someone love you, the less likely they are going to love you, because your need pushes them away. Playing the victim does not attract love.

As difficult as it may be it is important to stay detached emotionally in order to have a clear mind and to show the strong side of yourself. Have you ever had a nagging child pestering you for something over and over until you finally give in and give it to them because you cannot stand to hear them another moment? That is what often happens in relationships. The other person may not be in love, but they will say or do anything just to satisfy the other person and stop the pestering. Many times this will backfire as the needy person never gets enough.

If you have fallen in love with someone it is your free will at work allowing you to choose love. Have you ever been pursued by someone that you knew you could not love? Did the person keep calling you, texting you, or sending e-mails frequently? It started to get annoying after a while. You had the free will not to love that person. It is important to remember that free will is one of the main players in romantic love.

The Creator has given us the gift of free will and we are not puppets that can be controlled. Free will can make life difficult sometimes because we do want to control others and we have to face the fact that the Divine Creator gave each one of us free will.
You have to be found worthy of love. By this I mean you have to have self love, confidence, compassion, and kindness. These are the attributes that attract love. Fill your heart and soul with these attributes and you will find love coming to you of its own free will.

50 years of love from the Beatles to Us!

50 years of love from the Beatles to Us! Click to read the article
It was 50 years ago today that Sergeant Pepper brought the band to play. Wow, I remember 50 years ago as though it was yesterday. For those of us who were alive then we all know where we were Sunday night February 09, 1964. We were in front of our black and white televisions watching Ed Sullivan introduce the Beatles to America.

My entire life changed at that moment when I was twelve years old and the Beatles opened up the whole world for me. Their music turned me on so much that it was just like I had gone into another dimension. I understood the music and found it waking me up as though my previous twelve years I had been asleep. For me the world became filled with colors whereas prior it had been only in black and white.

For those of you who were not alive when the Beatles exploded across America you won’t easily understand the significance of their impact upon not only on America, but the entire world. They changed the way we dressed, looked, acted, spoke… and even our culture. The Beatles arrived in America just under three months after the assassination of President John Kennedy. This assassination had pulled America into a massive depression and the freshness and lively spirit of the Beatles was exactly what the country needed to revitalize itself.

The power of their music was definitely inspired and I believe that the Divine Spirit was working with them, to deliver the message of love to the world. A world which was in such chaos in the 1960’s and still is today.

The first time I saw their photograph John Lennon struck me as someone unique. My girlfriends all were in love with Paul McCartney. I was not in love with John, but when I heard him in interviews I loved his wit and I bought his first book, “In His Own Write” and found his humor to be the same as mine.

I was fortunate to live in Los Angeles and saw the Beatles in person three different times. It was a lasting memory. I followed the Beatles faithfully until their breakup and from there I continued to follow John and George’s music. But as always John seemed to be expressing the feelings that I had.

What inspires so many people about a lot of the music of the Beatles is, I think, that it makes them feel happy. It’s fantastic music and it evokes good feelings. She Loves You! Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band! Hey Jude! Such enjoyable songs that inspire people around the world to join in and sing along with John, Paul, George, and Ringo.

I am glad that I was alive to experience Beatlemania full on as a teenager. Not only does their music bring me pleasure, but it reminds me of a time when my life was easier and more simple. I was safe and protected by my parents. My parents were quite special as they took me to the Hollywood Bowl to watch the Beatles the first time in 1964 and they waited patiently outside for me and they did the same the next two years that the Beatles came to Los Angeles.

So I send out all my loving to John, George, Ringo, and Paul for all that you contributed to my life and to the world. We love you yea, yea,yea,yea!

I will always love you guys,
Cherokee Billie

Love is all about meeting someone else’s needs where they need it, not where we think they need it based on our own desires and experiences. You can’t love a woman as if she was a man or love a man as if he was a woman. You must intently look to meet their needs based on their unique makeup. Take your focus off of what you would like and focus on what they would like. And always keep in mind that love sacrifices itself for others, which is true selflessness.

Happy Valentine’s Day,
Cherokee Billie

Memories From One Year Ago

If you are a victim of Rape, Do not keep quiet
Last year on February 4 one of the most traumatic events of my life occurred, I was robbed and raped. I don’t write a lot on my blog about my personal life, but this does not escape my memory. I remember that day well. Everything changed. Those of you that have been following me know that I am an invalid and this was unimaginable when I woke up at 4:30 AM to a knife in my side and a man on top of me with his other hand over my mouth. His first words were, “I’m going to kill you.” Calmly I replied, “Kill me.” He kept repeating this because I believe he wanted a scared reaction instead of my calm attitude and I kept answering him the same.

I could see that he had been in my room for quite some time as every cabinet and closet was opened. He had to be extremely quiet because I sleep lightly. I also could feel that he had taken my father’s wedding ring which was on a necklace around my neck. I knew I would never get it back and it was the only thing I had left of my father’s. I really was not afraid of dying. I was concerned about being cut up and permanently damaged.

Keeping my calm demeanor serenely I began praying out loud. This really aggravated him and he stuffed a scarf down my throat, but I continued to pray. He did what he wanted to do and left quickly because I could see that somehow he had become afraid. I believe it was because of all of the divine entities that came into my room at that time. I kept praying until I was positive he was gone.

Anyone who has been through a robbery/rape can relate to what I’m saying. Yes, I have healed in many ways, but I will always remember this incident. Thanks to a donation I was able to install a metal security door on my bedroom, so now it would be close to impossible to get into my room at night. Because of that security door I’m able to sleep without great concern.

For anyone who goes through an attack like this remain calm and pray because you will find help from beyond. I do not claim to be an expert on rape victims, but I know what worked for me.

I am a survivor of rape. It isn’t anyone’s job or right to call it legitimate or otherwise. I am standing up for all rape survivors. I’m One!

The bottom line to remember is: “You live, You win.”

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie
