Talladega Prison, Sept 10, 2019 – Sweat Lodge

It is very hot and humid here today and really was at the lodge. Walks came out and helped sing and make prayer ties with me. No, we didn’t allow him to sweat. He is recovering from back surgery and isn’t ready to do that for a while yet.

Today our ceremony was all about letting go of all the negative energy of the world. We feel the frustrations, disappointments, bizarre and brutal acts of some done out of ignorance, mental illness, greed, jealousy, and hate. We must also let go of all the political agendas of others and such so that we all can have only peace, harmony and love energy.

We must let our bodies, hearts, and spirits bathe in these to restore, re-energize, and heal us from all the chaos of this world we live in. No matter where we are, it is important for us to practice this always and not let the overload of the world’s negative things wear us down, take us out, or change us. We must shutdown and reboot ourselves to be pure and uncorrupted by these negative viruses.

Yes this applies to everyone. For those who have a caring, loving heart, we feel too much, see too much, hear too much, and learn too much of all these bad things. It just overwhelms us, and seems that we can’t change anything, or make a difference. Oh, but we can. We just have to believe we can and in ourselves with a pure heart of love and spirit.

Editor’s Note – As I prepare to post this piece as the next in my queue on Ghost’s teaching from the Inipi, it strikes me as ironic that on this very day, he has written a letter to all his friends to let them know about his own struggles with negative energies. I think all who follow Ghost’s blog posts will enjoy this little insight into his life. I will post the letter separately. Be sure to check out “Beginning Life All Over.” Sings

I am an 80-something elder, a child of the great depression and WWII. I have lived a good life doing all the ordinary things valued by women of my generation. Through it all, I have also been a seeker, an outsider by nature, never quite "at home" in any group, but always looking through cracks in the fences of life, questioning, challenging, learning, trying to make sense of the world and its conventions. A registered nurse by profession, I am a lifelong student with a love of writing and interests in history and genealogy. In my golden years, just when I was starting to wonder what I was going to do with the rest of my life, some unexpected things happened that led me down new and unfamiliar paths. I’ve since learned it took a lifetime of experiences to prepare me for the new challenges and opportunities to come. The lessons these new challenges bring comprise the magic elixir that keep me seeking, keep me aware, keep me vital.
