How Ancient Wisdom Can Help You Cope
Indigenous people have taught simple truths for tens of thousands of years. In this time of uncertainty, turning to one of the world's oldest surviving cultures for guidance is empowering and comforting.
Here are four simple lessons to help you find your way:
LESSON 1 - You are never alone
You are a spiritual being having a human experience. Indigenous people understand that humans are more complex than we have been taught to believe. You are comprised of interconnected parts, more than a finite being of blood and bone. You are a soul and are a part of a soul group – a group of souls who incarnate in different ways to play this game of life together. You are also connected to your ancestors – a lineage of souls. Humanity is slowly awakening to this truth. The wisdom of your ancestors is always available to you. All you need to do is ask a question, be still and quiet, and listen for the answer.
LESSON 2 – Go with the Flow / Ride the Waves
This 'Awakening Event' is an opportunity for businesses to pivot and humans to discover our resilience. We can learn how to reconnect to our power source within. Going with the flow means to relinquish the illusion of control. We have NEVER had control and never will. Everything in nature changes. Surrendering to the flow is more natural than pretending we can control it.
LESSON 3 – Seek Answers from Within
With an abundance of information, it is confusing to know what the truth is. Australian aboriginals practice Dadirri; it means DEEP LISTENING. Aunty Miriam-Rose tells us, 'We cannot hurry the river. We have to move with its current and understand its ways.' We are to turn away from external sources of potential truth and turn towards our own source of truth – THE HEART. Become aware of your fears, allow them to exist, hold space for them and love them anyway. With loving acceptance, they are then released.
LESSON 4 – We're all in this Together
If you're struggling, ask for help. If you see someone struggling, reach out to assist. Social connection is a primitive human need and must be met for us to survive and thrive. The 'Awakening Event' will exist as long as there are souls yet to awaken. Those already awake are shining their light for others to find their way. Love and respect builds a sustainable future.
As a healer, I turn to the teachings of the Inka Shamans, First Nations and Australian Aboriginals to help birth the New World. I am currently working on making these teachings available to you in an accessible and relevant way.
