Summer Ceremonies: The Doctorings

Since many, or most, of us do not live in close proximity to adepts and holy people that can and do facilitate community ceremonies, that appropriate action is, in the end, essentially personal. So what matters is bringing the fullness of our minds, hearts, bodies, and spirits forward to say yes once more to life. Herein and from this point on, we are offered the opportunity for which we were born, that of recognizing ourselves as our own holy people. Aho!

Take up the staff of authority and don the mantle of leadership, and if you will, emerge and embark upon finding, forging, and designing a Way that is unique to your personal attributes and needs. These are the new Ways coming forward for the new days . . . and we are the ones. Since each of us initially think principally upon ourselves, as it should be, let us now think even more and deeply upon ourselves and the personal links to what we can identify as the proven and worthy gifts of life, the Sacred and all of its auspices. This is a deeply personal and sacred moment to be held close, in silence and privately, for some time to mature and seat in the deepest, innermost recesses of your sacredness. Take time for the building of this precious personal medicine, our personal medicine treasure—that of which we know and that of which we are—together and in a spirit of oneness with the mind of the Creator, in concert with these first, most beautiful and enduring gifts to and for us from the Creator: our Mother the Earth, our Father the Sky-Sun, our Grandmother the Moon, our relations: the Star People, the Directions, the Elementals, the Spirit Helpers, the colors, the Wind Beings, the Fire Beings, the Green Beings, the Water Beings, the Stone People, and all of the other named and unnamed sacred related beings that live upon and within this beautiful Creation.

The old people say, “That which you recognize, you own.”

They also say, “It’s not so much, will you do it, but whether you will remember to do it.”

Therefore, it is always about remembering… for the old ones say, “It is not whether you will do ‘it’ but whether you will remember it”, and, at the core of our remembering lives our sacred nature and the sacredness of all creation.” ~Minisa

1 Eagle/MEN – Seeking Our Highest Aspirations


1 Eagle/MEN (Cherokee, Eagle/UWO’HATLI)

1 Eagle/MEN

Galactic Tone 1:  Unity. One is the beginning of all things, the first, the whole and the all in one. One’s are assertive and self-guided and give a good push to whatever project they are associated with. One persons work best when meeting a challenge. Do not expect One-persons to be attentive to details or to put the finishing touches on things.

Eagle/MEN: Intermediary between Heaven and Earth. Due to the Eagles superior point of view and keen intelligence, they achieve material abundance and good fortune. A messenger gifted with patience and a deep sense of value, Eagle brings hope and trust on the wings of Spirit. Eagle persons are very detail oriented and technically inclined. Compassionate service to others sustains prosperity for Eagle persons as the flapping of wings would sustain their bird brothers. If Eagle becomes viciously competitive or possessive, greed and jealousy cause a fall from the heights. Eagles, being blessed with freedom of movement, should be aware of escapism. Eagles may be tempted to just fly away from troubles by using indulgences.

Seeking our Highest Aspirations

At Galactic Tone 1 we begin again. Tone 1 is the day to consider our intentions for the Eagle/MEN trecena. Eagle prepares the way for a journey of Spiritual Illumination. Totem Eagle is revered as the creature capable to soar to the heights of the heavenly realm to hear the voice of the Divine Spirit.

With Eagle vision we are empowered to see hidden spiritual truth and the unseen forces that guide our way. Guided by Eagle/MEN, we are carried on a flight of Spirit that draws us into closer connection with the Divine Spirit, our spirit guides, and teachers. Eagle/MEN is considered a Day Sign of luck and success in business as we are given the advantage of seeing outcomes on the far horizon.

We are led to take on the Warrior Spirit of Eagle/MEN to pursue our “highest hopes and anticipations, dreams and visions, cosmic consciousness and commitment.”

When the Eagle knows what it wants, it has the piercing vision to seek it out and the power of movement to go after it. Eagle’s unlimited movement means we can cover new ground and reach for the dreams we never pursued because we thought they were out of reach.

To all my relations, as we reflect on our intentions for the Eagle/MEN trecena may we be open to all possibilities. As we consider “what do I want” may we cast off the limits we set for ourselves in the past so we can see just how far the Eagle can take us. Up in the heavenlies we have all the help we need.
