The knowledge to facilitate healing is available. As Sharing Culture, we will ensure that more people are made aware of this knowledge and implement it in a way that helps others. We intend to empower and connect people to facilitate healing.
However, I sometimes lose a little confidence - and the vision becomes a little hazy - particularly when trying to raise the funding we require to do our work (and keep our families fed). Receiving rejection after rejection can become a little soul destroying, even when you know what you are doing is good and urgently needed.
It is good therefore to be reminded of things that can help me stay on track and not waver from my vision. I saw an excellent reminder yesterday in the book Meditations with Native American Elders: The Four Seasons by Don Coyhis.
I have described this book in an earlier blog, explaining how Don provides a reading and an Elder’s quote for each day of the year. Here is what is written for January 1st (with my paragraphs):
“… because if you believe in something, and believe in it long enough, it will come into being.” Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE
“We are created by the Great One to accomplish His will through our mental pictures or visions. Our thoughts are three dimensional: words, pictures and feelings.
We create the vision by thinking the words and we create the feeling for the vision by feeling the enthusiasm, desire, commitment and other strong beliefs. Once we create the vision, we move toward and become like that which we think about.
All visions are tested by our self talk; for example, “This isn’t going to happen, where is the money coming from anyway?” When this happens, we need to let go of the test and focus on belief in the vision. Why? Because God said if we believe it long enough, He will guarantee it!!!” Don Coyhis
Happy New Year to you all. Stay strong and don’t lose your vision.
