Gratitude: The “Earth Magic” of Spirit

Greetings Beloved Kin,

I’m counting my blessings. It’s easier when everything is “smooth sailing.” I’m grateful that the list can start with Mooji’s prayer of simply, “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.” I’m grateful for candles, sage, and incense I can use to clear my space and my thoughts as a ritual I can see and smell to remember.


Revelation 1:8 King James Version
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

The first blessing is the Truth that God Provides. I’m grateful for the Law of Love and a Divine Authority with the Highest Intention to carry it out. I’m grateful that I learned I can forgive to know I’m standing in Right Relationship, Above and Below. And, I’m grateful for the Beauty of Mother Earth, and the Senses to See, Hear, Taste, Smell, and Feel it. I’m grateful for the Sun by day and the Moon and the Stars by night.

I’m grateful for a safe place to sleep tonight, food for my table, and the blessing of water. I’m grateful that you are there, carrying on the same prayers for tomorrow, on behalf of the whole. I’m grateful for Life, and the means to stand and walk on my own two feet.

My hand written list began from a place of my doubts and fears, more dominated by physical things of worldly value. It doesn’t matter where we start when we are giving thanks for everything. By a Divine Provision, Gratitude will always turn our thoughts to the blessings that really matter.

When I’ve invested the time I want to spend, counting blessings that never end, the list will be placed on my altar. Then, I’ll write the list of things I’m ready to let go. My Intention is to burn that and offer the ashes to Mother Earth. Then, I’ll wash off the old to step into the Promise of a New Life and the Power of the New Sun to raise us all to our highest potential.

Looking to the future of the Wasek celebration and the High Watermark of Spirit, I remembered my first Wasek ceremony and the offering released in the waters of Puget Sound. The flowers were offered with a prayer for the children and for every family. The ashes that were released there for “what no longer serves” was a 1 word list – “impossible.” That will be the ashes released on behalf of the whole, from the same “list” I’ll burn tonight. I’ll remember how Mother Earth makes all things new, and the old ashes that by now have become the higher hopes for a Miracle, beyond every “impossible” that’s Not the Truth.

When I left the place and turned back for one last look, a family was gathered in the place for a picnic. Some of the roses floated back to shore. A father captured one and presented it to his little girl. That was the answer to my prayer and a Miracle of Love and Divine Timing. That was May 2019. My life bears no resemblance to the way things were then. I can’t remember if I was still driving the car with 3 taped up windows, when dinner from Taco Bell was a splurge. From a distance, it was a beautiful time for the promises of tomorrow that have come true. I pray that I’m wiser now, and could be just as happy in the darkness or the light.

I’m grateful that all the fears and doubts of our Human emotions have nothing to do with the Divine Truth, just thoughts that belong to someone else drifting by. I’m grateful for FEELINGS that ARE the Truth, aligned with a Divine Law and a Promise offered to everyone just the same.

I’m grateful for the darkness of the Unknown, that always gives way to the Light that goes on forever.
On behalf of the whole, I’m asking for Divine Intervention to help us all remember until we Rise to See and Feel the Truth again.

Projecting my thoughts of Love in all directions through the One Above, so the Light will be spread around by the One who knows the Heart and Mind of the Ones Who Need to know and Feel the Truth.

with all my love, in lak’ech, grateful to be another you

Debra, 9 Eagle/MEN

5 Monkey/CHUEN (Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI)


Descriptions by Ian Xel Lungold

Galactic Tone 5: Empowerment. At the center of the cube we find Five. Five is an intelligent, organizing force which manages communications and materials, knowledge and application. Fives are natural net workers who gather what is needed. These persons can probe directly to the core of any situation making them excellent investigators.

Monkey/CHUEN: Monkey is known to the Maya as the Weaver or Weaver of Time. Monkey takes ideas as threads of vines and weaves them into the fabric of our reality. New patterns or inventions are also woven into our lives by Monkey. Amiable, intelligent, generous and a jack of all trades, Monkey’s innocent curiosity leads to artistic expression and constructive solutions. Many Monkeys become highly respected merchants or speakers. They love performing practical jokes and crave attention, so much so that they may over-act or play the fool to get the spotlight. Monkeys have a short attention span and find it difficult to stay with anything long enough to master it.

Cherokee, Raccoon/KVH’LI: Star Symbol: Algol, a star in Perseus. Restless energy yearning for long-lost love. Algol was named DEMON STAR or MISCHIEVOUS ONE by the Ancients because it winks and fades at times. Raccoons are full of friendly mischief, eager to swap kisses for candy; magnetic leaders, full of humor and gaiety. Favorite food is corn, the mainstay of the Cherokee. Very artistic while being the “masked bandit” who steals your heart. Totem Monkey: The energy of humor, the artisan and craftsmen of the Universal energy. Helps us to lighten up in all situations, was the glyph of the 4th world creation in conjunction with OC so that we would have humor in all of our endeavors. The humor, when added to a serious situation will allow you to have a less destructive pattern of resolution. This is the “Cosmic joke” energy to help us transcend the duality. A life path of comedian, actor, artist, artisan writer, satirist, any path is enhanced with this humor in conjunction with the creative energies.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
