Homage to Black Elk

Today’s Affirmation:
“I am a relative to all that is.”
Something prompted me recently to pick an old copy of “Black Elk Speaks” up off the bookshelf. Thought I’d share with you a beautiful prayer inspired by his words, and recited by his biographer, John Neihardt:

According to Neihardt’s grandson Robin, “Neihardt wrote the prayer shortly after the 1931 historic talks he had with Black Elk at Pine Ridge Reservation. He was able to capture in poetic form what the great Sioux holy man was relating to him in Lakota conversation.” (You can read more and follow Robin on YouTube here.)
Enjoy!
Love & blessings,
Christie

Food: fuel or nourishment?

Today’s Affirmation: “I slow down the pace of my eating and savor the flavor of food.”

All matter is energy. What we take into our bodies affects us on many levels – not just physical but emotional, mental and spiritual.

What you eat does matter. HOW you eat matters, too. In our society we tend to think of food as fuel. Fill ‘er up, and get back on the road!

Today, try thinking of your meals as a way of loving yourself. Choose something nourishing to eat, and allow yourself time to really enjoy it. Then notice the difference in how you feel after a meal!
