Poem: Beautiful Child

HOZHO

Beautiful Children, we are

All of us
From the EAST, born spiritually holy
Created of the air, fire, water and earth with divine light and love

Beautiful Youth, we are
All of us
From the SOUTH, we learn how to make a living to travel in life

Beautiful Parents, we are
All of us
From the WEST, we gather to celebrate spiritual family love
our fireplace, hearth and home in ceremony

Beautiful Grandparents, we are
All of us
From the NORTH, we renew
SELF-Reverence and Reverence for Mother Earth and Father Sky

Beautiful people, we are
All of us
Traveling the four corn-pollen footsteps with all our relatives
All is created in beauty

Blessingway Ceremonial Principles

The Blessingway

by Patricia Anne Davis

To explain the blessing way, spiritual-cultural concepts are translated from the Dineh language into appropriate English descriptions to convey universal health and healing concepts from Dineh oral tradition.

Blessingwayhozhooji: a ceremony to awaken one to natural order (hozho); choosing constructive and life-affirming choices; healing from intentions and decisions that destroy oneself and others.

Navajo ceremonies do not require a conversion process of taking away the precious child within the natural order, and replacing this spiritual SELF-identity with a deficient self-image that has to be re-mediated to some desired end state of progress.

Once awakened to the natural order, we begin living the loving wayhozhooji: literal translation of the blessingway ceremony as translated by my paternal aunt. It is a way of living in reverent revolution, of making decisions that are constructive and life affirming.

Two main ceremonies: Protectionway and Blessingway

These two main ceremonies offer protection from contaminants like the maladaptive emotions of hate, jealousy, anger, guilt, fear, etc. and toxins from the environment.

Five major ceremonies: As five-fingered people, this corresponds to five major ceremonies that every child in the world could benefit by.

  1. Blessingway: the blessing way honors the divine feminine as a nurturer.
  2. Protectionway: divine masculine as a protector-provider.
  3. Purification and cleansing: numerous with specific names for specific purposes.
  4. Spiritual renewal: a nine-day ceremony for spiritual renewal.
  5. Journey to spirit world: the ceremony for a person on their journey to the spirit world.
The Journey Through the Four Worlds

The Navajo creation story speaks about the people traveling through four worlds into the current world from the place of emergence within the four sacred mountains.  This represents 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.  Every child is born through the water and through the birth canal.  The element of fire is our temperature and we inhale and exhale with the creator’s holy breath.  This air originates from the physical sun and radiates to the trees where we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide.

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”.  They sing a person back to balance, harmony with creator, themselves and others within the natural order.

The journey through the four worlds was required to restore balance and harmony from misusing life energy for destructive and death-producing choices.  There is a consequence in violating the natural order.  This is not punishment, condemnation or judgment, just consequence and a message to correct the out-of-balance life condition.

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.  For an explanation of the terms above, please visit the glossary

Hozhooji — Living the Loving Way:

Awakening to the Natural Order with the Ceremonial Change Process

By Patricia Anne Davis, MA Choctaw-Navajo/Chahta-Dineh
Edited by Carol Hiltner and Karah Pino

Published in the Spirit of Ma’at July 2011

An excerpt is below, click title for entire article:

Patricia Anne Davis is an authentic Indigenous medicine person by tribal lineage, initiation, training, and experience. She has held Indigenous wisdom and knowledge [1] 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 [2] 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.

Natural Order as an Open Social System

Patricia's Graphic for the Ceremonial Change Process

Click to Enlarge

To the left, you will find a graphic representation of the transcendence that occurs when the Closed System of Disease that is designed for failure is re-framed into the Open system of the Natural Order during the Ceremonial Change Process.

The first thing to understand about the Navajo language is that it is spoken in an Affirmative thinking system within the natural order as described in the examples of time and cardinal direction correlated with blessing way principles moving clockwise.

Typically, English is spoken symbolically in a triangle and in a different thinking system.  It is in the context of hierarchy, patriarchy and describes everyone in their deficient self-image, which must be remediated into some end-state of civilization or enlightenment.

English is abstract.  It is a trade and commerce language.  Navajo is descriptive and exact.  Therefore, healing ceremonies are exact and actual in the natural order, which is not religion, philosophy or theory.

There are four phases to every healing process that leads to curing, not coping.  Before defining them, one must know that the healing process does not exist in the English language thinking system, but it can be described to convey the integrity of the sacred meaning of Navajo words.

The term “Navajo” is an imposed name.  We Dineh have several spiritual names that identify us to the creator as a precious child of divine creation, made of earth-physical, water-emotive, fire-mental and air-spiritual.  Corn is the symbol of food as social medicine within the economic relationships of the clan system.  Our spiritual names are inclusive and universal in application to all people. One name is “earth-surface people”, another is “five-fingered” people and another is the affirmation: “I am a precious child of creator”.

Consequences of Closed System Thinking

When a person makes decisions that are destructive and death-producing, this is considered misuse of thinking by using thinking for what it is not for.  All ceremonies correct erroneous thinking that “tell” the body wrong information.  Every out-of-balance condition is a consequence of saying “yes” to destructive and death-producing choices and saying “no” to constructive and life-affirming choices.

When a person denies the unifying principle that all creation is Inter-related, this is “stress”.  All of the diseases are a consequence of denying our oneness with the creator’s will-to-love.  All Navajo healing ceremonies reawaken a person to their true spiritual Self-identity as a precious child of creator made of the four sacred  elements: air-spiritual; fire-mental; water-emotive; earth-physical body.  When any one of these elements is out of balance, there is dis-ease with creator’s will-to-love that manifests as disease.

Living Hozho, in the Natural Order

The Navajo language is a spiritual language spoken with living words that manifest vibrations for affirming truth in the laws of nature or the natural order of time and direction from East-thinking, West-planning, South-decision making for collective survival and North-equity in restoring resources to the next generation moving clockwise within temporal time and cardinal direction.

For example: sunrise, mid-day, sunset, mid-night; spring, summer, fall, winter; child, youth, adult, and elder.  Also, white people, red people, yellow people and black people, all born equal in the sacred circle of life within the holiness and wholeness of hozho.  There is no concept of separation from creator or from the natural order.  There is only the principle of making constructive and life-affirming choices.

Lovecurrency

What is Lovecurrency*?

When living the loving way as a way of life, our identity is experienced through our spiritual family love and our holy relationship.  Lovecurrency is a synergistic and exponential effect of using power within, from creator, to have power with others.

This social medicine is experienced as the act of being loved and of loving others.

*Joseph Trinh: “My hope for America is that love can be a currency for spiritual healing and abundance”
