~ Cherokee Prayer Blessing ~

May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.

~ Chief Dan George ~

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears,
And, above all, may silence make you strong.

~ Cherokee Prayer ~

O' GREAT SPIRIT
help me always to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind when others speak,
and to remember the peace that may be found in silence.

~ Native American Prayer ~

Oh, Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me, I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have
made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have
hidden in every leaf and rock.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my Spirit may come to you without shame.

(translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887)

emoticon Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you, but on what happens inside of you.

H appiness if found within not in people and things.

A cceptance of the present regardless of what fears/inner demons you may
be facing

P ersistence in seeking love and happiness inside ourselves so we may
experience the abundance of love and beauty that encompasses us

P atience with ourselves as we learn and grow through our personal trials
and tribulations life often presents to us unexpectedly.

I nside ourselves are all the answers we seek, believe in yourself with a s
smile on your face

N ever give up yourself! Challenge your belief systems with an open heart
and a positive mind set

E ndless love and happiness awaits you, seek it consciously without delay

S pirit of love is the essence of our original form; happiness is our natural
state of being

S trive in the face of adversity and feel your spirit soar to new heights
experiencing love, peace and happiness from this moment forward. Live
as if there is no tomorrow, for you reap what you sow.
