Patience and Trust

The old people remind me that while summer is a time of explosive energy and intensive work, it is also a time that requires great patience and trust.  Like our winged relatives we must wait for our eggs to hatch in their own time, trusting that we have done all that we can to ensure their health and vitality.

Where are the places in your life that require your trust and patience? 

How will you know when to step back and let them grow?

This is part of a series of mindfulness prompts that are based in Métis teachings as I know them. They do not represent every teaching, only my interpretation of the teachings I have been gifted.  Each weekly post will be an image specifically designed to fit the lock-screen on your phone. The idea is that you can make mindfulness easy, effective and beautiful all at the same time. Placing each new image on your lock screen will hopefully keep it in the front of your mind and allow you enough time to lean into the learning.

Welcoming Summer

We greet summer this week with deep breaths, open hearts and engaged minds.  As with each season, summer brings very specific wonders and learnings.  The old people tell me that summer is the time of growth, development and abundant energy and if we keep hard work and community at the core, our path will be be clear. As you lean into summer where do you feel energy shifting and growing?  How can you sit quietly with the world in order to hear it more clearly?

Respect for the Earth

The old people share that in the Spring, we have an opportunity to learn the teachings of Respect and Love for the earth.  In this teaching it is important to take only what is necessary, as well as to contribute to the process of renewal–not only of the Earth, but of ourselves. In this way, we will come to understand all that the earth provides us. What do you have to learn by reflecting on your individual journey? How has the earth nourished and supported you?

Take what you need

The work on this page is my passion, and where I borrow, I give thanks.  Borrow what you need, share as often as you can, but let my name travel with my words so that the voice remains authentic.

This season, we have seen our world, our mother, take a long awaited and much needed deep breath of her own.  The birds sing louder, the four leggeds roam more freely and the scent of warming cedar has the space to reach our noses.

I am filled with gratitude for all that each of you has sacrificed to bring in this spring and cannot wait to learn a new way to be together that allows the world its continued breath.

Some people are just ready...
