Memorial Day Blessings

PATTON

Memorial Day is not about picnics and barbecues. It is about showing respect to those who have fought and the many that died for our country. With this holiday it is not the war’s we are remembering, instead, we are remembering those who served and those who gave all of their devotion in order to insure that the freedoms that this country offers  would be able to be passed on to the next generations.

There are rows and rows of white tombstones in Arlington National Cemetery. The freedom wall holds 4,048 gold stars at the World War II memorial. Each gold star represents one hundred American Service personnel who died or remain missing in the war. Many names are etched into the granite at the Vietnam Memorial. I offer my heartfelt gratitude to their souls.

Here’s some ground rules for Memorial Day Weekend.

  1. Don’t wish me a Happy Memorial day – there isn’t anything happy about brave men and women dying
  2. It’s not a holiday or a sale, it’s a Day of Remembrance
  3. You want to know the true meaning, visit your local Cemetery or a VA Hospital, not Disneyland or a mall
  4. Don’t tell me how great anyone in political power is; tell me about Chesty Puller, George Patton, John Basilone, Dakota Meyer, Kyle Carpenter, Mitchell Paige, and Ira Hayes…
  5. Don’t tell me I don’t know what I am talking about; I have carried the burden all too many times for my warriors who now stand their post for God
  6. Say a prayer, and then raise a glass and thank god for the men/women who are no longer here

What Memorial Day Means To Me.

I wanted to take a minute and share with everyone the significance of Memorial Day to me.

My father fought in World War Two and his total platoon was killed by the Japanese and he survived because he played dead even though he was shot many times. My father received the Purple Heart, and the Silver Star. I always think of him on Memorial Day.

So this holiday is important to me as I remember what my father went through for me and for others.

I also think of all the young men that I went to school with who went to Vietnam. Some returned and some did not. So many of these young men that I cared for came back broken and did not recover. To top it off they were spat on for serving their country by those who did not support the war. Whether you support the war or not always have respect for those who went into battle to fight for what they believed in and for freedom.

I think of all of the men and women who have lost their lives and sacrificed so much to fight the war on terrorism. We did not ask for this war, but without standing up to terrorists imagine how much more damage could be inflicted on the innocent.

lets-not-forget-them

I find it incredibly sad how our veterans are not being taken care of by the government that they served. Friends, let me ask you a question, when was the last time you seen a VET on the street corner in a wheel chair? Twelve % of the Homeless Population consists of Veterans, roughly 67,000 people.  Now, how can this government send money to other countries while ignoring these Vets? How can they say they care while ignoring these Vets, who sacrificed so much for our freedom, that are on the streets? America, wake up.

Whatever you do this weekend take time to pause and give thanks for all that you have due to the sacrifice of so many men and women.

Blessings to all who have served and are serving America,

Where did the time go?

I turn 66 years of age this week and I cannot believe I am still on this planet.  With all that I have went through physically, emotionally, and spiritually I am amazed that I’m still here. Everyone tries to tell me that I have some special purpose for being here, but I think I’m just a stubborn bitch who refuses to give up.

Looking back over my life I had some good times.  I have incredibly fond memories of my parents, my first love, going to concerts and hockey games and mingling with the rich and famous.

Unfortunately when I hit my early thirties my health really deteriorated.  What I’m most grateful for is the fact that I’ve been able to help and inspire people no matter what my situation has been.

I would like to thank all of you in your support of my efforts in reaching out to people from all walks of life to encourage and enlighten them on their path.  I’m grateful that the work that I have been doing has helped people that I do not even know. It takes a lot of work to do social media every day, but I receive messages from people telling me that I have changed their life even though we have never spoken. There are days when I’m so sick or in so much pain that I do not feel like working on the Internet, but these messages, from people like you, keep me inspired and I know that I’m helping others.

People think that because you are doing spiritual work everything in your life should be perfect, but that’s not always the case. Many other spiritual workers have written to me telling me that they find themselves having illness and not sure how to proceed in their spiritual work feeling like they are somehow a failure. Everything happens for reason and I believe in my particular case that the hardships that I go through have been for the refining of my soul. I would never have known who I really was if life had been easy for me.

I do want to thank those of you who have followed me over the years and contributed to some special moments in my life. I thank all of my clients who I have taught and have taught me.

I am grateful to everyone that has used my services privately. As a small business person this recession has really hit my business tremendously. The feedback that I receive tells me that I have helped people on their path and given them direction.

I’m grateful that the work that I have been doing has helped people that I do not even know. I receive messages from people telling me that I have changed their life even though we have never spoken. That is a wonderful legacy to leave behind. If you find that the work that I have done over the years is of benefit to you please make a donation to keep my website up and my business running. This is a spiritual ministry and I depend upon your support by using my services or your donations to keep doing the work that I love and that helps so many.  Click Here to donate.   Any amount of support will be appreciated.

Remember our time on this planet goes quickly so make the most of everyday.  Keep spreading love and light and you will be changing the world!

This quotation from the song by Frank Sinatra I feel pretty much sums up my life. “Let the record show I took the blows and did it my way.”

Many blessings,

Happy Mother’s Day Wishes May 14, 2017

Mothers Day Subway

Wishing ALL the beautiful.. hardworking.. dedicated.. sexy.. generous and loving moms (and grandmas) living and in spirit a fabulous Mother’s Day! Also, to would be mothers who are enjoying the life that grows within them. For all of the mothers of fur, feathered, fin, and reptile babies’ thank you for taking care of these wonderful creatures.

My mother is in spirit and I look forward to the time that we’re reunited. Thank you for everything you gave me Mama.

I am grateful for my fur baby Tigre.  She brings me so much happiness with her sweet spirit.

I was thinking of the ladies that never had children and have wanted to. There is a wonderful chapter in the Bible that speaks about women who never had children and how they will have more children because of their spiritual work. This has always been very comforting to me as I never had children.

Isaiah 54:1-5 “Sing, O barren, you that did not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, you that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, said the LORD.

Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations: spare not, lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes;

For you shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and your seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Fear not; for you shall not be ashamed: neither be you confounded; for you shall not be put to shame: for you shall forget the shame of your youth, and shall not remember the reproach of your widowhood any more.

For your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.”

In my life I have found this passage to be very true. Never feel that you are alone, remember that so many people out there need what you have to offer. Never underestimate you. Use your gifts and you’ll be amazed at how many spiritual children you will have.

For all of You Mothers may your day be blessed with love, beauty, and compassion. Never forget how special you are!

Many blessings to all Mothers,
Cherokee Billie

I Leave You With This Beautiful Story About Mothers.

A baby asked God, “They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?”

“Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you.”

The child further inquired, “But tell me, here in heaven I don’t have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy.”

God said, “Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel’s love and be very happy.”

Again the child asked, “And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don’t know the language?”

God said, “Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak.”

“And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?”

God said, “Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray.”

“Who will protect me?”

God said, “Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life.”

“But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore.”

God said, “Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you.”

At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, “God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel’s name.”

“You will simply call her, ‘Mom.”

How to Find Happiness Medicine

13033fe224198a3be78ebb4987bf9c28

Would you like to wake up every morning feeling happier, fully alive, and more connected to life than you already are?

Of course you would. We all want to be happier. In fact, Aristotle said that “happiness is the goal of all goals—the be all and end all of life.”

Unfortunately, we don’t always feel happy. But we can change and here is how!

Once a man from a tribal culture had become troubled and unhappy. The villagers had taken him to the local shaman (medicine man). After the suffering man poured out his troubles to the wise spiritual leader, the shaman sat quietly for a moment. Then, instead of giving him advice or prescribing an herbal remedy, the shaman simply asked him four questions:

  1. When did you stop singing?
  2. When did you stop dancing?
  3. When did you stop being enchanted by story?
  4. When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?

Across all cultures, the healers and medicine people know that if someone is unhappy, they are inevitably missing one or more of these four crucial ingredients for happiness.

Without song, movement, story-telling and silence, we begin to experience a loss of soul or spirit.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these:

  1. Singing: Singing can be as simple as humming or chanting or it can be a full blown aria in the shower. You don’t have to have a great voice or be on key—just singing opens the heart. Research shows that the sound of your own voice singing, chanting or humming strengthens your immune system. Even though we often think of singing as an expression of being happy, it can actually help you recover your inner peace and well-being if you’ve lost your joy.
  2. Dancing/Moving Your Body: Every culture throughout history has had some form of movement in dance, sport, and exercise. Moving your body creates endorphins, the feel-good hormone. Movement and dance bring you back into your body and help you trust your body’s deep wisdom.
  3. Storytelling/Sharing with Others: Storytelling is one of the oldest healing tools igniting our heart and imagination and re-enchanting the world. Make sure to share your story with others—not the victim version, but the empowered one.
  4. Silence: While silence is something that’s hard to come by in our culture, it is one of the most important allies you have in raising your happiness level. Being silent, even for 10 or 15 minutes a day, allows you to touch the great mystery of life and remember who you are.

So, the next time you find yourself a little down or in a funk, remember the shaman’s four questions. Then add a bit of singing, dancing, story-telling, and silence into your day. I guarantee you will find this powerful medicine working in your life.

Happiness blessings,

Have a Blessed Holy Week

Palm gif

Today is the start of Holy Week and Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday celebrates Jesus procession into Jerusalem where people threw down palm fronds to celebrate his entry into the holy city. Many religions process around their churches waving palm fronds and crosses as a symbol of this triumphal event.

No matter what your belief may be this is a spiritual time and a reawakening of our true spiritual self.

“The Christ, He who was in the ancient of days, is the flame of God that dwells in the spirit of man. He is the breath of life that visits us, and takes unto Himself a body like our bodies.

He is the will of the Lord.

He is the first Word, which would speak with our voice and live in our ear that we may heed and understand.

And the word of the Lord our God builded a house of flesh and bones, and was man like unto you and myself.

For we could not hear the song of the bodiless wind nor see our greater self walking in the mist.

Many times the Christ has come to the world, and He has walked many lands. And always he has been deemed a stranger and a madman.” ~Kahlil Gibran in Jesus The Son of Man

Take time out of your busy lives and reflect on the spiritual blessings that are being poured out at this time. No matter what you may be going through the blessings are still coming and it is up to us to recognize the miracle of each day.

Too much political correctness has made it unfashionable to have faith and talk about it openly.  I will choose to continue to have faith because without it I would have nothing.

I believe without a doubt in the Divine Creator and know that every day we need to pray just like we take a shower, eat, and sleep. In all things give thanks and be prayerful.

May you be blessed now and always,
Cherokee Billie
