Lessons From the Sacred Inipi(14)
By Ghost Dancer
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
