Patricia Anne Davis is an authentic Indigenous medicine person by tribal lineage, initiation, training, and experience. She has held Indigenous wisdom and knowledge  for a lifetime. Her soul commitment is to communicate this wisdom and knowledge to support healing of humanity’s out-of-balance conditions, through the long-prophesied reawakening of humanity to live in harmony and balance within the natural order. To do this, she must translate not just between the Dineh and English languages, but between two thinking systems.
Hozhooji is, in the sacred Dineh language, a blessingway ceremony for remembering and reawakening to our sacred self-identity as a precious child of creator. It is a celebration of hozho, an all-encompassing concept of holiness and wholeness. The ending ji, means to sing someone back to health.
There are five major Dineh healing ceremonies  of which hozhooji(blessingway) and protectionway are two. All ceremonies are for a specific purpose and they all follow the phases of healing to reawaken a person. Literally, hozhooji translates to living the loving way, as a way of life. This means choosing constructive and life-affirming choices.
At this time, I am called to publicly share Indigenous wisdom and knowledge to educate about how humanity can heal itself. This is a challenging task, because it involves more than a translation from one language to another. It requires communicating an entirely different system of thinking-one that most people don’t even know exists. A single word in Dineh is an interconnected hieroglyph. To understand this interconnectedness requires a thought reversal process – a reframing from one thinking system to a completely different one.
Patricia’s presence in Altai this summer serves several purposes in service of Mother Earth:
1) She is providing ceremonial structure to an open group from four continents, called the Altai Fellowship (http://altaifellowship.wordpress.com). On August 13th at the foot of sacred Mt. Bellukha in the Altai Mountains of Siberia, the fellowship will be singing open an energy portal. They will tap into a “reserve” egg of life force that has been prepared by the Brotherhood of Light for Mother Earth in time of need. Over the following week, will transmit the energy onto the global light grid, to be grounded by light workers around the world. Due to border-related travel restrictions, it is not possible for additional people to be at Mt. Belukha to transmit. However, people all over the world are encouraged to ground the energy locally, amplifying their effectiveness by gathering groups. Preparatory ceremony for grounding groups will begin on July 30th. All information is online at http://altaifellowship.wordpress.com.
2) Both formally under the auspices of UNESCO, and informally in gatherings,she is sharing the Ceremonial Change Process in her powerfully experiential way, with local Altai people, educators, and government officials.
3) Through these activities (especially by facilitation of the global grounding groups), she is fulfilling worldwide Indigenous prophecies of the rebalancing of human intention from destructive to constructive within the natural order.
