Greetings Beloved Kin,
We are beings of energy, made of stardust. Our thoughts are electrical signals with positive and negative charges. We collect dust just like a TV screen. We collect the residue of negative thoughts that are projected onto us by the thoughts of others. We ARE changed when we wash it off. We always feel better, after.
The Divine Inspiration from tracking my thoughts this morning was about the reason I resist taking a shower. First and foremost, I hate that moment when I step out of it and I’m freezing cold. and b) I hate the time it takes to fix my hair. All of the above amount to about 15-20 minutes, for the feeling of cleanliness that feels awesome for the rest of the day.
There is a solution as simple as mind over matter. You can ASK God for ANYTHING that helps you do the next right thing, and you’re sure to receive the answer to the prayer. Actually, it’s that freezing moment that invigorates all the senses and makes it feel so good when you put on clean clothes. For some reason, I was super conscious of that yesterday – likely because I’d been resisting the “freezing cold” for a few days. So, there’s even good that can be drawn from resisting a good thing, when it becomes a burning issue.
The Elders taught us that when we take a shower to imagine the experience as descending light. It IS the Truth. Water holds the substance of Spirit. The Spirits of the Ancestors was left behind in the water that was returned to Mother Earth. All things that were living and die return their water to Mother Earth.
I’m asking to remember what a Divine Blessing it is to HAVE clean water in a measure of abundance to take a shower. I can start by walking in someone else’s shoes who doesn’t have the luxury of that blessing to Remember the Big Blessing that’s an everyday thing for me. We owe it to those who are going without it to appreciate what we have. When we do, we remember to Ask on behalf of the whole. When we ASK for the whole, we set in motion the Miracle of Answered Prayers. It’s easy to believe that if God Answers Prayers, pure, clean water for the whole would be high on the list of things the Creator intended to be.
love, in lak’ech
PS. I should be well on my way to get the next thing accomplished today. Who knows what Divine Things could happen, while I’m doing what I know is the next right thing to do. I pray the same for you.
PSS. The First Divine Sign for today – I stepped out to make my morning offering for the birds and squirrels, at the exact time when a white dog that looked like an arctic wolf was trotting by in the alley. I’ve never seen it before anywhere in the neighborhood in the year I’ve lived here. We’re still in the 1st quarter of the Wolf Full Moon’s cycle.
The Jaguar’s Magic of Gratitude: I’m grateful that Water actually washes the “sins of the world” away. I’m grateful that we can create the reality of Holy Water and Know it’s the Truth.

Galactic Tone 11: Resolution; 11 assists every new thing to find its place in the universe in the process of ‘fitting in.’ some modifications must occur. Eleven is the energy of dynamic actions facilitating change, simplification and improvement.
Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeaver to bring peace, harmony, and order to all of their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, many have marriage or business problems because of inflexible views and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson of Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe.
Cherokee, Reed I’hya: Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind. A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.
