Bear Medicine

My fave excerpt from “Bear Medicine”: Bear Medicine is a powerful ally who offers protection and guidance during stressful situations, to resolve long-standing problems, in which one may feel locked in and can’t find their way out. Bear Medicine teaches us how to be silent and still so that we may receive higher guidance and inspiration. Bear Medicine also teaches us how to meet all our needs from within, so we never have to go without.

Winter is a good time to settle in and dig deep for spiritual truths. The wisdom of “Bear Medicine” is good medicine for troubled times.

Bear Medicine is powerful medicine, bringing healing, renewal, and rebirth. This is the gift that Grandmother Bear brings those who live with Bear Medicine.

Leonardo da Vinci Drawing It could just as easily been a Bear in the Boat. Maybe Bears of old had horns. And that’s no Bull.

Bear Medicine is the power associated with the spirit of the bear, particularly the bears ability to heal, is known in virtually all cultures within the bear’s range. The bear is known to seek plants for its own healing. North American brown bears are known to dig up Ligusticum porteri, not surprisingly known as, “bear root”. The plant is known to have antibiotic properties, being good for stomach aches, and repelling insects. Now that’s Bear Medicine Medicine, if you know what I mean! They chew on it…

Are You A Buffalo, Or A Cow?: How To Deal With The Storms Of Life

An inspirational read. Respond to life’s struggles like the buffalo, by going head-first into the storm.

The Swing Of Things


The question posed in the title is not one to be offended by, unless of course you come easily offended. If that is the case then I say to you perhaps a thicker skin shall be in need.

If you are not offended, be patient as I am sure by the end of this little prose I will have offended you in some manner. I am really good at it.

Nevertheless, in the spirit of getting back to the point I want to tell you a story I heard and its implications for life and how to deal with whatever comes your way.

Colorado is one of the few places in North America that has both cows and buffalo. Its unique climate allows for both to co-exist. There are many similarities between a cow and a buffalo, but this distinction is something we as humans can learn a lot from.

Unity. Something I prayed for. Something I yearned for. And, yeah, it’s happening. It’s real. And it is here to stay.

Whatever happens at Standing Rock will impact Canada.

Let’s forget about these borders. Let’s stand together in unity for our future seven generations.

Respect the land. Respect the water. Respect the people.

It takes a certain amount of humility and courage, to look at one another with love and in love.

I stand with those who pray at Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Always.

Enough is Enough. Just like my mother would say, when she had enough. There was an urgency in her voice, whenever I heard these words. I respect it now.

Mni Wiconi. Water is Life.
