Shamanic Animal Spirit: The Dove (Peace)

We often complain we live in an aggressive world. And many of us pray for peace. But do we always create peace in our own lives? Peace is not simply an intellectual concept or a geopolitical status quo. It is a state of being. If we were able to bring peace into ourselves, our world would certainly be very different. This is what the spirit of the Dove is suggesting at this time: bring peace into yourself. Slow down, relax, close your eyes and breathe regularly. Pause for a moment this stressful and frenetic modern life, and get back to Now. Use any technique you like to stop this incessant chatter of mind: yoga, meditation, a walk in nature … Now, you are already more peaceful. If you are currently experiencing conflict in your life, you are invited to choose a peaceful resolution … because the peace you create around you and the peace you achieve within yourself are one and the same.

MESSAGE FROM THE DOVE: “Bring peace within yourself and it will spread through the world.”

The Quick Fact Series


The Campaign to Free Hawai`i

• Upon realizing that our country, the Kingdom of the Hawaiian Islands still exists and that the United States had for years been operating unlawfully in our country, many of us embraced our Hawaiian nationality and began working to free ourselves and our country from US encroachment and encampment. What eventually emerged is what is called, The Campaign to Free Hawai`i.

• The Campaign to Free Hawai`i works to – 1. expose the fraud perpetrated by the United States; 2, demand the US withdraw from operating in our country and, 3. bring about a peaceful and orderly transition to reactivate our Kingdom.

• The Campaign to Free Hawai`i welcomes all the peoples — whether living in the Hawaiian Islands or elsewhere — to join us in putting our hearts and minds together in the reactivation of the Hawaiian Kingdom as a sovereign state.

• We Hawaiians call on all Americans to urge their President, Donald J. Trump, to agree to a peace treaty with the Hawaiian Kingdom for the normalization and resumption of proper, friendly relations between our countries.

• We Hawaiians call on the global community to support freedom for Hawai`i and we invite countries from around the world to revive and honor existing treaties and agreements to normalize relations with our Hawaiian Kingdom.

Spirit Animal Oracle | The Mole (Introspection)

Here is a beautiful Sioux legend which says a lot about the spirit of the Mole. In ancient times, The Creator gathered all of Creation and said, “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that, as a part of me, they create their own reality.” Many creatures suggested places to hide this knowledge, but none of them were really satisfactory, as humans would finally explore them. Finally, Grandmother Mole, who lives within the heart of Mother Earth and sees with her spiritual eyes — rather than her physical eyes — spoke up: “Why don’t we hide it inside the humans? That is the last place they will look for it.” The Creator laughed, and replied in an instant: “It is done.”

The Mole has a profound and rich connection with its inner self. Like the Mole, you may benefit now from solitude and introspection. Don’t look for solutions around you, as all your answers are only within yourself. Get back to yourself, and look inside Examine your emotions and understand your patterns. It may not be pretty, but explore even your darkest corners and deepest wounds. Be honest and don’t try to embellish things. Only when you really know yourself, will you be able to initiate deep changes.

MESSAGE FROM THE MOLE: “Look within yourself and find your own answers. You can only heal what you are aware of. Know thyself.”

Mo’olelo | Manu Aluli Meyer on Epistemology

Every now and then we have an Aha! moment where the purpose of life and the meanings in the universe seem to align. Manu Meyer has one of these moments and in this video, she hands us the seed, the kernel, the ‘aloha’ of that moment. We are all individuals, and yet, we are all one. We must separate the knowledge we learn in schools from the knowledge that we all share in our combined historic experiences. Please join her and share in this introduction to that ‘Aloha’ moment.
