Like many of you, my lineage stems across continents and races. My family has many unspoken tenants that, truth be told, I haven’t always lived by.
Recently, I resurrected them.
There is also a prayer I found in the book Mutant Message Down Under about 20 years ago. Over the years I tweaked it a little and it resonates with me and these principles.
This prayer & these principals, part of my DNA, are a roadmap for living a more connected life. Today, I share them with you.
10 Teachings from My Ancestors
1. Count your blessings daily. (Gratitude rewires your brain to discover more to be grateful for.)
2. Honor your ancestors through your actions.
3. Our “real” Mother is the earth. Your birth mother is a metaphor. Honor & care for both.
4. Not everything is at it appears. See, feel, hear, & act from your heart.
5. All life is sacred. Treat all beings with respect.
6. Ask before taking from the earth. Leave an energy exchange. Don’t take more than you need.
7. Have big picture thinking. Constantly ask yourself “What is the best step next for all?”
8. Praise in public. (Reprimand in private.)
9. Follow the rhythms of nature. (Birth projects. Enjoy friends & family in the sun. Harvest memories. Allow closure. Repeat.)
10. Enjoy life. Leave a legacy of powerful words & actions.
who speaks to us in silence,
& teaches us through each other.
Guide my steps with strength & wisdom.
May I see the lessons as I walk,
honor the Purpose of all things.
Help me touch with respect &
always speak from behind my eyes.
Let me observe, without judgement
May I cause no harm,
& may I leave music & beauty after my visit.
When I return to forever
may the spiral be broader & the circle be closed.”
Two things are certain in life. Your birth & your death. If you can improve one life, starting with your own, you have a life well lived.
