~~ PUEBLO INDIAN PRAYER ~~ AMAZING GRACE ~~







As I have indicated in prior posts, while I am not Native American, I feel the Spirit of the Native American. I do not believe that all the events in my life associated with Native Americans are coincidental. I believe ever since I had a Native American Babysitter when I was very young I was drawn to our first people. As I grew older my connection became more clear not just from experiences  in the United states, but also from  my travels abroad. 

Below is a very inspirational Prayer. It magnifies what I feel is the essence of  all indigenous people, not just Native Americans. Having purpose in life can make you happy and feel fulfilled. Never give up hope for a brighter and better future while making footsteps  on Mother Earth. No matter what situation you find yourself in, believe in yourself. 

Know that spirits past of friends and family are beside you! Feel their grace, feel their energy and love. You may feel alone, yet you could be in a crowd supporting you.

 PUEBLO INDIAN PRAYER:

"Hold on to what is good, even if it's a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, even if it's a tree that stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, even if it's a long way from here. Hold on to your life, even if it's easier to let go. Hold on to my hand, even if I've gone away from you..."

AMAZING GRACE in CHEROKEE language by Walela:
"u ne la nv i u we tsi
i ga go yv he i
hna quo tso sv wi yu lo se
i ga gu yv ho nv

a se no i u ne tse i
i yu no du le nv
ta li ne dv tsi lu tsi li
u dv ne u ne tsv

e lo ni gv ni li squa di
ga lu tsv he i yu
ni ga di da ye di go i
a ni e lo hi gv

u na da nv ti a ne hv
do da ya nv hi li
tsa sv hna quo ni go hi lv
do hi wa ne he sdi"

Below is the best rendition of the popular song Amazing Grace I have heard. Please play the video. In the mix of the video there are scenes from my favorite movies on Native Americans.  






Consider this Native American Prayer


"Oh Great Spirit, Whose voice I hear in the winds and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me: I am small and weak,

"I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice. Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught my people. Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock. I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy -- myself. Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes. So when life fades, as the fading sunset my spirit may come to you without shame..." Chief Yellow Lark, Lakota Tribe.

  1. so beautiful and inspiring, thank you for sharing, Stephen. I too feel a very strong connection to the native americans. I am aware i had two past lives as one of them, oddly enough i've been recalling more fragments of one of them recently during healing work.

    have a lovely sunday!
