Osiyo cherished Community,

Rising with an empty mind and being available to be teachable. Each Portal Direction below is a ‘real’ movement of GrandMother Earth and her families. Choose thriving go Outdoors sometime between 4 am and 11 am – in the East direction. If tough weather then open a window and use visualization to be outside. Copy, Cut and paste your personal Family Clan where there are blanks, If you do not know your Family Clans, visualize our Planet and Universe. Rituals are specific to each Monthly Moon Cycles. Chi-Ho, EarthThunder

Read this paragraph (which is condensed morning Ritual) and/or read entire morning Ritual:
Face Southeast Say, “ I am conscious, responsive, and accessible (clapping your hands 3 x).
I serve, share and seek our Planet and Universe as GrandMother Moon, GrandMother Earth and her families, GrandFather Sun, GrandMothers of the large waters, Seasons, BeLoved TASOM and Buffalos. I honor all Portals, Clans, my human families, communities, my mind, bodies, spirit and my Family Clans. I hold a rock in my left hand and I go inside of EarthMother’s deepest belly of molten fires. Will I remember the Passion of my first lives that mirrored and echoed this Planet’s Passion? (Meditate as long as doable by going inside the molten fires) Does this change the integration of energies that fuel my thoughts and choices today? Is my passion spending money that is not part of my budget? Will I forgive myself and live sustainably? I seek to be teachable within my Family Clans .”

Face South say, “Do I hear myself being assertive or demanding or aggressive? Do I know what flowing humility sounds like? Do I ask permission before I expect? Are we in a time of action or endurance or both? I am teachable within My Family Clans .”

Face West say, “Do I hear myself being assertive or demanding or aggressive? Do I know what flowing humility sounds like? Do I ask permission before I expect? Are we in a time of action or endurance or both? I am teachable within My Family Clans .”

Face North say, “Do I hear myself being assertive or demanding or aggressive? Do I know what flowing humility sounds like? Do I ask permission before I expect? Are we in a time of action or endurance or both? I am teachable within My Family Clans .”

Power Ally say,” All is remembered by My Power Ally .”

Face Above say, “ I am the growth-transitions of Circles, Cycles, Seasons, Spirals, Compost, Mysteries, Rain, Oceans, living is Infinite. My LifeWork is mirrored from my
My Family Clans .”

Face Below say, “Wellbeing is deep sleep and My Family Clans .”

Within say, “I breathe myself inside of My Family Clans . Their Wisdoms’ healing is inner-diversity.”

I desire the life I have, I want my life’s lessons unfolding and I know doable simplicity. This is Passion.
Chi-Ho! (Leave some tobacco in gratitude)

SUNSET RITUAL is GRATITUDE. (Outdoors or at an open window between 4 pm to 11 pm) Each day of working needs closure as well as working for our Planet and Spirituality. The following Ritual closes the Portal to working and opens the time of rest and relaxation.

Face Southeast Clap your hands loud three times then say, “I complete, surrender and free. I place my Mental, Physical, and Emotional Bodies to pause in the UnderWorlds of GrandMother Earth, her families and the spirits of the Ancients. I cast my Spirit Bodies to GrandMother Moon. GrandFather Sun shake me out of my bones and throw my bones into the StonePeoples. I swirl and twirl for the possibility we may meet in the dreamtime. May Grandmother Earth and her families interrupt our dreams as needed. I know there is no promise of tomorrow and today is enough. A deep healthy sleep is my highest priority of surrender. I am in appreciation and gratitude for my health, thriving, family, friends, community, lodge, land, and lessons. (you can name specifically) Here I go, ready or not this day is done Enough, all of today began as Enough and I accepted Enough, wheww Chi-Ho.” (Give some tobacco as an offering of gratitude and sacred honoring)

Journey Song Two — Sensational Life
In the East it is believed that everything is so directly connected and in relationship to everything else that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings can trigger a hurricane on the other side of the planet. It is in the second Journey Song that you can feel both the butterfly flapping and the hurricane spinning and knows that they both influence your life.

Your second Journey Song is your ability to let the world in through all your senses by feeling how it flows to and through you. These sensations put you in contact with the world. How are you aware of all the people, places and things in your life? How do they touch you and how do you feel when they do? How aware are you of vibration, light, sound, other people intensions, your desires and passions?

Secondary aspects of sensation are their accompanying emotions. A sensation is the raw unit of feeling. Emotions are feelings coming to consciousness from those sensations and are triggers that move you to turn either inward or outward. Notice how much your sensations drive your emotional behavior in both positive and negative directions. This flapping and whirling is a picture of your second Journey Song.
Water, Emotional identity, oriented to self-gratification The second Journey Song, located in the abdomen, lower back, and sexual organs, is related to the element water, and to emotions and sexuality. It connects us to others through feeling, desire, sensation, and movement. Ideally it brings us fluidity and grace, depth of feeling, sexual fulfillment, and the ability to accept change.
