What is Wealthcare?
There is an all encompassing concept of holiness and wholeness within the organic natural order context from an Indigenous language worldview simplified here:
Interpersonal - powerwithin
- Air: Spiritual – Air originates from the physical sun and radiates to the trees where we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.
- Fire: Mental – The element of fire is our temperature and we inhale and exhale with the creator’s holy breath.
- Water: Emotive
- Earth: Physical – The concept that there is one mother of us all because our body is composed of earth. The word for mountain is the same word for spiritual strength.
Creator’s holy breath: The miracle of life that we call photosynthesis is what Navajos call the creator’s holy breath. We are instructed to use this holy breath for speaking living words that heal. This is why our medicine people are called “singers”.
Intrapersonal - powerwith
- Corn symbol: social/economic well-being. Corn is the symbol of food as social medicine within the economic relationships of the clan system.
The above description of organic unity expresses individuality interrelated within the universal laws of nature where no deficient self-image can exist. When the spiritual SELF-identity is denied, a dis-ease condition results in the many manifested diseases. The concept of understanding health as our true wealth for productive and creative living is the strategy and content of wealthcare concepts within a natural order context.
All my work is translated from the Navajo/Dineh language and those italicized words notate that. The meaning and vibration is my way of keeping track of information in English while I exist, speak and write in the Dineh Affirmative thinking system.
