See The Beauty That Can Come From Within
There is so much wisdom contained in that little three letter word, “see.” The ancestral beliefs of The Dineh (Navajo people) are nature oriented, and the four directions have great meaning to them.
East: This is the direction of the dawn and it is our thinking direction. We should first think before we do anything. When the sun comes up, we look to the…
South: …our planning direction, where we plan what we are going to do. The sun sets in the…
West: This is our life, and is where we do our living. Here is where we act out our plan and our thoughts of the east and south directions of our lives. The sun sets in the west.
North: This is the evaluation portion of our lives, where we get our satisfaction and we evaluate the outcome of what we first started in the east. Here is where we determine to change things to make it better, or to see we are on the right path and should continue the cycle.
Every day the cycle is repeated, and in each cycle there is a lesson to be learned. During the day, when we fall, we stand back up and see what we can do differently the next day. Each dawn is a new start. If you are an alcoholic, a drug abuser, or if you did something in the past, then early dawn is when you can start a new life again. There is renewal. Mother Earth and Father Sky love us so much, they give us the chance every morning to start our life new. The Creator answers our prayers in the early morning, if we ask for their guidance and assistance to help us with whatever we do. Source
New cards coming soon, featuring Sia-lea-lea’s twin brother.
The girl’s face on this card comes from one of my Navajo themed paintings. I have long enjoyed painting “Sia-lea-lea” performing the tasks of a traditional Navajo family. And now, coming soon to our card selection, is Sia-lea-lea’s twin brother. He loves his family, but he loves his freedom even more. His elders have to remind him, often speaking to him with words of wisdom and caution.
Listen to the wind, it talks;
Listen to the silence, it speaks;
Listen to your heart, it knows.
