My mind is my greatest asset.
Nothing matters more than the Spiritual Life Fire dwelling within YOU!
There comes a time when you seek to comprehend the true meaning of PEACE, and how you as an individual may find that peace, a peace which the world can neither give you nor take from you.)
This is one way. Visualize the blazing Star, still, and yet full of life and light. Identify yourself with the Star, with the center of that Star. Allow your energies to go into the still center of that Star. Within that center you will find that all the anxieties of material life, all the struggles that you encounter in daily life, will fall away from you. In the heart of the Star is deep, eternal peace, and within this peace you are united with those whom you love.
On a daily basis give yourself time to enter this Star Temple, this calming scene. Go into it, away from the noise and turmoil and tumult, the fears and anxieties of the material plane. There, within the center of this Star, find divine, holy peace. Hear within your Soul the music of the heavenly spheres, the music of the Holy Word, the audible life-stream which flows from the heart of the Creator.
Be still now, within your mind and body. Listen inwardly. Beneath all sound, beneath all thought, in the deep silence at the heart of creation, you will hear the harmony of God.
Elizabeth Joyce 12/02
May God grant me Health, Protection and Guidance.
The Sun has entered SCORPIO
SCORPIO energies bring a renewed interest in sharing. You become more public oriented and are searching for love as well as career recognition. Be determined that early month trauma, fears, pessimism, repression, and doubts can be eiminated from your life as you promote a penetrating insightfulness, willpower and the skill to solve mysterious riddles. This is the height of the season. Autumn has truly arrived. Enjoy entertaining and socializing with friends and colleagues. Above all, cultivate the skill of open, empathetic communication in place of subtle deception. Scorpio is an intense sign, and is not in a realm of easy answers, but it always holds the gold key to spiritual transcendence.

ANIMAL: THE HORSE
With power to run
Across the open plains,
Or to bring the vision,
Of the shields
Dancing in the purple rain.
“Stealing horses is stealing power,” was a statement made frequently in historic native America and a reference to the esteemed role in which the horse played in the native cultures.
The horse represents physical power as well as unearthly power. In Shamanic practices throughout the world, Horse enables the Shaman to fly through the air and reach heaven.
Humanity made a great leap forward when Horse was domesticated. a discovery akin to fire. before Horse, humans were earthbound, heavy-laden , and slow creatures indeed. Once humans climbed on Horse’s back, they were as fast and free as the wind. They could carry burdens for great distances with ease. Through their special relationship with Horse, humans altered their self-concept beyond measure. Horse was the first animal medicine of civilization. Humanity owes an incalculable debt to Horse and to the new medicine it brought. It would be a long walk to see one’s brother or sister if Horse had not welcomed the two-legged rider upon his back.
Today we measure the capacity of engines with the term “horsepower,” a reminder of the days when Horse was an honored and highly -prized partner with humanity.
Dreamwalker, a medicine man, was walking across the plains to visit the Arapho Nation. He carried with him his pipe. The feather in his long, black hair pointed to the ground, making him a man of peace. Over the rise of a hill, Dreamwalker saw herd of wild mustangs running toward him
Black Stallion approached him and asked him if he was seeking an answer to his journey. Black Stallion said, “I am from the Void where your Answer lives. Ride on my back and know the power of entering the Darkness and finding the Light.” Dreamwalker thanked Black Stallion, and agreed to visit him when his medicine was needed in the Dreamtime.
Yellow Stallion approached Dreamwalker next and offered to take him to the East where Illumination lives. Dreamwalker could share the answers he found there to teach and illuminate others. Once again, Dreamalker thanked Yellow Stallion and said that he would use these gifts of power on his journey.
Red Stallion approached, rearing playfully. He told Dreamwalker of the joys of the balancing work and heavy medicine with the joyful experience of play. He reminded Dreamwalker that he could better hold the attention of those he taught when humor was integrated into the lesson. Dreamwalker thanked him and promised to remember the gift of joy.
Dreamwalker was nearing his destination. The Arapaho Nation was close at hand. White Stallion came to the front of the herd. Dreamwalker mounted White Stallion’s back. White Stallion was the message carrier for all the other horses, and represented wisdom in power. This magnificent horse was the embodiment of the balanced medicine shield. “No abuse of power will ever lead to wisdom,” White Stallion said. “You, Dreamwalker, have made this journey to heal a brother in need, to share the sacred pipe, and to heal Mother Earth. You have the knowledge through humility that you are an instrument of Great Spirit. As I carry you on my back, you carry the needs of other people on yours. In wisdom, you understand that power is not given lightly but awarded to those who are willing to carry the responsibility in a balanced manner.
Dreamwalker, the Shaman, had been healed by this visit of wild horses, and knew his purpose of coming to the Arapaho was to share this gift with them.
In understanding the power of the Horse, you may see how to strive for a balanced medicine shield. True power is wisdom found in remembering your total journey. Wisdom comes from remembering pathways you have walked in another person’s moccasins. Compassion, caring, searching, loving and sharing your gifts, talents , and abilities are the gateways to power.

RUNE of the Month
FERTILITY—New Beginnings—The Hero
This Rune is akin to the Moon, to the yin, the intuitive energy with its urge toward harmonizing and adjusting the sphere of personal relationships. It embodies the need to share, the yearning to be desired, a search after similarities.
The completion of beginnings is what Inguz requires. It may mark a time of joyous deliverance, of new life, a new path. A Rune of great power, Inguz indicates that the force is available to achieve completion, resolution, from which becomes a new beginning. It may be timely that you complete a project now. If so, make that your first priority. Perhaps a difficult state of mind can be resolved, clarified, turned around. The appearance of this Rune in the month of November, 2012, indicates that one must fertilize the ground for one’s own deliverance.
All things change and we cannot live permanently amid obstructions. With deliverance comes the release from tensions and uncertainty. As you resolve and clear away the old, you will experience a release. The period at or just prior to birth is often a dangerous one. Now it is time to enter the delivery room. Movement involves danger, and yet movement that is timely leads us out of danger. The Rune Inguz signals your emergence from a closed, chrysalis state. Prior to “breaking out” you may be required to free yourself from a rut, habit or relationship, a deep cultural pattern or some activity that was quite proper to the self you are leaving behind.
Inguz counsels preparation. Being centered and grounded, your space cleared of all unwanted influences, and seeing the humor, you are indeed prepared to open to the Will of Heaven, and can await your deliverance with a calm certainty.
