Trail of Tears - Day 7

We sleep with the night sounds and stars over head and rise with the morning song birds. Each night we do the queens jewel and run our feet with soul blossom radiance. We ask the state of our souls many times throughout the day. Altering along we go.

Singing the native sings before the altars we bow it raise our hands to the skies. No words left. Now stories. New stories being made. The dust of the paths are on our moccasins and I try to close my eyes and feel the wimyn with their babies at breast walking. Walking. Walking.

Maybe aiming as are we. But what in their hearts? Minds? Strong spirits? I breathe so that my blood pumps faster and stronger through my heart. Their blood. The blood of my people. The blood of the people whose home was this land we walk and pass by. We pause often.

Before the last one hundred miles of altars I make a new prayer. In honor or all that was lost. In honor of all that was preserved. In honor of all things seen and unseen. Known and unknown. Spoken and unspoken. Up above. Down below. Never ending. The spirit of the Cherokee. Soul strong.

Help support our cause! 

In our modern world, it is not easy to let what is natural be natural – to honor a knowing that existed before we did. It is even more difficult to preserve it. If it is not preserved within us, it will not be preserved in our families and communities, our policies, our hospitals, our schools or our nations. Most importantly, it becomes lost to our future generations.


Your contribution helps sustain the Holyland and the Spiritual Retreat Centre for Instinctual Living. The Centre offers programs of education and spiritual direction specifically for midwifery, childbirth, wellness therapies, yoga, as well as personal and collective spiritual retreats.  


We are a diverse community and I, the founder, am a woodland Mystic of Cherokee ancestry. I place all donations on my altar in Rose Cottage to receive a blessing of return for your happiness, health, wealth and holiness. If you send a donation, please include a love note.  


“I promise to live, in ever growing awareness, a life of simplicity; to give more than I take and to quiet the mind to single and simple purpose; to live with the knowledge that I am the temporary guardian of all I possess and to stand ready to share when love calls.”
