Native American today

I believe that a lot of us, native american or not, are aware and upset about whats going on in North Dakota. Here is a clip I received of what happened there last night. It made me cry.

The video clip will not transfer, sorry for that. But in essence, the report says that the government is spraying the camps using crop dusters, at night. Apparently hoping that all people who are standing up for their water and land and the future of ALL , will either get sick and die, or leave and let the pipeline to be built through secret lands and possibly contaminate waters.

It saddens me and my relatives.

We took the whole country away from native Americans, why can’t we just leave them the little bit of land they still can call Home in their care to live and feel free?

Native American spiritual Quote

I stumbled across this today and want to share it:

The first peace, which is most important, is that which comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its Powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real Peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.

My husband is Native American, thus the deep interest in spiritual quotes from them.

About Desert Lilly = me!

I have chosen Desert Lilly as my pen name, because it is a beautiful but elusive flower. Thus far I haven’t seen one in nature, still looking though.

One would think that since we live in the High Desert in Arizona, the flower would be visible sometime some where, Not yet

.Now that I explained why my pen name, here are a few things about me:

We live totally off grid, using solar power, built the system ourselves, on a small budget and it’s giving us enough power to do the things we want to run electrically. We also have a 8000Watt generator we use when needed.

I have a close bond to earth and nature, enjoy  being outdoors starting plants, cacti and trees from seeds , love gazing at the stars and the moon, Holistic healing, Ayurveda, MEDITATION, Energy Healing, Natural Remedies vs. prescription Medications, avid about fragrance free ANYTHING… organic foods and how to cook healthy meals

( A note to the reader: I DO NOT cook indoors, mostly because I don’t like my home to smell like cooking, thus I cook almost anything on an outdoor propane BBQ. Even Thanksgiving Turkey!)  I will share recipes just ask!

Meditation

Meditation brings your mind into the alpha state. Thus you can concentrate on the subject without interruptions from other influences. The first few attempts to completely relax might not bring immediate results, but you will feel refreshed and better than before. Give yourself 10 to 20 minutes. Best not to lay down, but to sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes and imagine to be in your special, peaceful place. As you are imagining that place, wonder around in it and enjoy the scenery. Relax your head, body, shoulders, arms and legs and feel yourself going into a deep relaxed state of mind. Once you feel relaxed, concentrate on whatever it is you want to change or accomplish and visualize the change as it already being in effect.

Meditate daily, it will help you to reach a goal or show you the path to take to a blissful happy being.

Namaste.

first post blooging 101

I am female, happily married, 20years, how time flies….

In my younger years when single I traveled to many countries and have enjoyed other cultures. Now we live in the High Desert in Arizona. Why did we choose this place?? Intuition. We were looking for peace and wide open space to enjoy our senior years. So far we have succeeded.

I could go on and on about the beauty of this area, my cactus garden, some in bloom right now.

I am interested in Energy Healing, for people as well as animals. I have  applied some of the holistic healing methods to heal my old Maltese, she is a foundling so to speak, we took her in to help her have a few more happy years, she is 15 now, and almost completely healed. Just lost some teeth.

I am also very interested in the Law of Attraction, positive thinking can bring things to you, just do it.

Meditation is a must to keep from going insane, that’s what I think.

More interests of mine: fragrance free  cleaning products, naturally grown foods, no GMO is what I feel is important, Organically grown veggies and fruits,  gluten free stuff,  Good thing chocolate is gluten free!!

My goals for blogging 201

The reason why I want to be a successful blogger is that I want to connect with like minded people to exchange ideas as well as to inform people how important meditation to health is. Both health of body as well as spirit. As positive affirmations on a daily basis will bring the things you desire.

If my blog would get so fabulous that I would have one hundred followers from all kinds of walks in life, I would post 2 or 3 times a week, or more if demanded.

Should I change my goal? Or keep working on refining it?

Any recommendation will be read and considered if it falls into my reality.
