Souls From Sirius
They are very visual, both in their ability to see things which others do not, and in their manner of learning.
Those who have Sirius as their planetary origin are very focused, very determined, and set on whatever path they are on at a given time.
It is very difficult to change the mind of one from Sirius, but once they have become convinced that a new Path is more appropriate, they become totally focused on the New, and release the old quickly.
Sirians have strong beliefs, ideals and personal integrity.
Those from Sirius make loyal, trustworthy friends, and expect the same in return. They become hurt and disillusioned when these expectations are not meant.
Sirians do not share the inner personal self with others easily, and may have difficulty sharing emotions and expressing feelings and needs.
To be fully accepted and trusted as a close personal friend of a Siriun means that you have been carefully scrutinized.
Those from Sirius tend to be future oriented, and do not enjoy focusing on the past.
Source Surge Activism , Dismantle Dairy
Surge have launched a brand new campaign Dismantle Dairy, featuring 18 months of undercover footage obtained from inside UK dairy farms. Independent investigators placed hidden cameras in dairy farms around the UK, as well as obtaining HD footage during visits. The footage revealed widespread incidences of physical and emotional abuse of mothers and calves.
Surge found repeated incidences of punching, kicking, excessive tail twisting, swearing/shouting, beating with sticks, separation of calves from their mothers, force-feeding of calves and the disposal of calves. Investigators also recorded HD footage during visits, capturing harrowing scenes such as dead cows and calves left to rot outside for days.
However, rather than draw attention to individual farms and create the impression that these are isolated cases or “bad eggs”, the campaign seeks to expose the dairy industryas a whole, revealing how even standard practices such as…

Many religious traditions include the concept of the soul. In some traditions, the human soul is central to the belief system, while in others it is not. In some religious traditions, particularly the Christian tradition which the European colonists and the American government attempted to force upon the indigenous cultures of North America, humans have only one soul. However, in many American Indian religious traditions, humans are seen as having multiple souls.
Among the Sheepeater Shoshone, there are three kinds of souls. The first of these is the suap or “ego-soul” which is embodied in the breath. The second is the navushieip or “free-soul” that is able to leave the body during dreams, trances, and comas. It is the navushieip that encounters the guardian spirit that becomes one’s ally during life. Finally, there is mugua or “body-soul” which activates the body during the waking hours.
Among the Sheepeater Shoshone, if a person was sick because the soul had fled, then the medicine person went into a trance to search for the soul. If found during the trance, the soul could be restored to the body and in this way the sick person was restored to health.
Among the cultural traditions of the Atlantic Northeast, humans were seen as having more than one soul. Among the Narragansett, for example, there was one soul that worked when the body was asleep and another soul that would leave the body after death. When the body was asleep, the dream soul-Cowwéwonck-would roam, often appearing as a light, and seek out guardian spirits. The other soul-Míchachunck-was located near the heart and was the individual’s animating force.
Among the Huron, each person has two souls: one of these souls animates the body and one soul extends beyond physical activities. In sleep, one soul communicates with spirits and with other human souls. When this soul returns to the body, dreams are the way in which the soul’s experiences are communicated. From a Huron perspective, it was essential to reenact these dream adventures in order to unify the two souls and make each person whole again. The failure to do this would result in serious illness which could impact the entire village.
According to Anishinabe (Ojibwa, Chippewa) spiritual teachings, human beings have two souls, one of which travels at night and lives the dreams. With two souls, human beings can communicate with both the spirits and the souls of non-human persons. Chippewa elder John Thunderbird explains it this way:
“Your soul dreams those dreams; not your body, not your mind. Those dreams come true.”
He also points out:
“The soul travels all over the world when you dream.”
Around the world, many religious traditions teach that after death the soul is reincarnated. Among the Indians of North America, the concept of reincarnation is found in many tribes. Sioux physician Charles Eastman writes:
“Many of the Indians believed that one may be born more than once, and there were some who claimed to have full knowledge of a former incarnation.”
Writing in 1817 about one Lenni Lenape man, Christian missionary John Heckewelder reports:
“He asserted very strange things, of his own supernatural knowledge, which he had obtained not only at the time of his initiation, but at other times, even before he was born. He said he knew that he had lived through two generations; that he had died twice and was born a third time, to live out the then present race, after which he was to die and never more to come to this country again.”
Among the Lenni Lenape, some babies are the reincarnation of former relatives. After birth, old women will examine the baby to check for signs that the baby has lived before. These signs include keeping the body relaxed and the hands unclenched and reacting favorably to places and things associated with the dead relative.
Among the Mandan, reincarnation was accepted and it was felt that the child chose its mother. The Mandan also had four souls, the principal soul being seen as a shooting star. At death, this soul could be seen in the sky.
With regard to death among the Gitxsan, Shirley Muldon writes:
“We believe in reincarnation of people and animals. We believe that the dead can visit this world and that the living can enter the past. We believe that memory survives from generation to generation. Our elders remember the past because they have lived it.”
Among the Hopi, the spirits of children who die before they are initiated into a kiva return to their mother’s house to be reborn.
As mentioned above, the Huron feel that each person has two souls. After death one soul stays near the corpse until after the Feast of the Dead and then it is released so that it can be reborn. Some of these souls are resurrected in name-giving ceremonies. The other soul goes to the village of the dead after the Feast.

ABOUT LEONARD PELTIER
According to Françoise d’Eaubonne in her book Le Féminisme ou la Mort (1974), ecofeminism relates the oppression and domination of all marginalized groups (women, people of color, children, the poor) to the oppression and domination of nature (animals, land, water, air, etc.). In the book, the author argues that oppression, domination, exploitation, and colonization from the Western patriarchal society has directly caused irreversible environmental damage. Françoise d’Eaubonne was an activist and organizer, and her writing encouraged the eradication of all social injustice, not just injustice against women and the environment.
This tradition includes a number of influential texts including: Women and Nature (Susan Griffin 1978), The Death of Nature (Carolyn Merchant 1980) and Gyn/Ecology (Mary Daly 1978). These texts helped to propel the association between domination by man on women and the domination of culture on nature. From these texts feminist activism of the 1980s linked ideas of ecology and the environment. Movements such as the National Toxics Campaign, Mothers of East Los Angeles (MELA), and NATIVE AMERICANS FOR A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT (NACE) were led by women devoted to issues of human health and environmental justice. Writings in this circle discussed ecofeminism drawing from Green Party politics, peace movements, and direct action movements.
Modern ecofeminism, or feminist eco-criticism, eschews such essentialism and instead focuses more on intersectional questions, such as how the nature-culture split enables the oppression of female and nonhuman bodies. It is also an activist and academic movement that sees critical connections between the exploitation of nature and the domination over women both caused by men.

“There is one God looking down on us all. We are children of the one God. God is listening to me. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we now say.” –Geronimo, APACHE
The Old Ones before us knew things. Many of them were so spiritual that the Creator told them things through visions, ceremonies and prayer. The Creator taught them about inter-connectedness, balance and respect. The Old Ones experienced these things and told us we are all children of the same God. We all live under the same natural laws. Every human being, every animal, every plant, every insect, every bird, we are all the same in the eyes of God.
The Universe will always remain in balance. For every action there is an equal an opposite reaction.
Formally stated, Newton’s third law is:
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object. The direction of the force on the first object is opposite to the direction of the force on the second object. Forces always come in pairs – equal and opposite action-reaction force pairs.
This Protective Meditation will surround you with an AURA of White Light and Protection. As you Envisage this, choose whom you will have standing beside you, or above you. You can imagine this person as anything or anyone. It could be an Angel, a Friend, a Spiritual Guardian, the Untapped Powers of your own Sub-Conscious mind, the Creative Force of the Universe. Whatever you choose to call it, it will watch over you, and keep negativity and darkness away.
It doesn’t matter when you do this exercize of protection, or where, except that you should do it without being disturbed. You can do it before you sleep, before you get up, or at any time during the day, as long as you have a few minutes alone.
Begin this exercize with some breathing ~ Inhale through your nose counting to 3 ~ and then Exhale through your mouth counting to 4. Imagine yourself breathing IN Pure Clear Light, exhaling the negative cloudy air from your lungs. Now close your eyes and with your mind draw a ring of white or golden light all around yourself. This is your Protective Sphere: Within this bubble you are protected from Dark or Negative Thoughts, Actions and Your Own Fears, .
This is a well-used exercize which people of all Faiths and Beliefs have used for 1000’s of years, with definite and sometimes amazing results. NOW ~ CALL UPON YOUR GUARDIAN. Imagine him/her as, perhaps standing with a drawn sword, or with their hands on your shoulders ~ however you wish.
You KNOW that your Guardian can DEFY any negative energies or thoughts. Encased within your sphere of Light, you are Completely Safe. Your Guardians will protect you, wiping away anything that you perceive as threatening you. This Circle of Light BLAZES out into the UNIVERSE; Your Guardian, or Guardians if you wish more than One, likewise Burn with Warning against anything that you feel may harm you.
SEAL the protective light around you ~ with these words : I now Seal Myself With Light , I Am Guarded , I Am Safe. Name your Protectors and Say “They Stand Behind Me Warding Off All Harm”.
After the exercize you can open your eyes and go about your business, knowing that you are looked after. At ANY TIME, you can imagine the circle of light about you, your Guardians standing there, and you can reinforce it simply by sitting quietly for a moment, and going through this Exercize of Protection again.
You Are Loved, You Are Guarded, and You Are Safe.

I surrender my soul
Odin hear my call
One day I’ll sit beside your throne
In Valhalla’s great hall
Like so many before me
I’ll die with honor and pride
The right of the warrior
Forever to fight by your side
Send a sign, raise the sail
Wave a last goodbye
Destiny is calling
Immortality be mine
Call the witch to cast the runes
Weave a magic spell
We who die in battle are born
Not for heaven, not for hell
We are sons of Odin
The fire we burn inside
Is the legacy of warrior kings
Who reign above in the sky
I will lead the charge
My sword into the wind
Sons of Odin fight
To die and live again
Viking ships cross the sea
In cold wind and rain
Sail into the black of night
Magic stars our guiding light
Today the blood of battle
Upon my weapons will never dry
Many I’ll send into the ground
Laughing as they die
Place my body on a ship
And burn it on the sea
Let my spirit rise
Valkyries carry me
Take me to Valhalla
Where my brothers wait for me
Fires burn into the sky
My spirit will never die
