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.

Dis-ease/Disease-                    *Wellbeing Continuum

Inverse Thinking System          *Affirmative Thinking System
Deficient self image                     *Sacred-SELF intellect
Allopathic                                      *Holographic holistic thinking

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

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”

Walking in Beauty

Walking in Beauty: “hozho naasha”

The four cardinal directions principles defined below are the “beauty way path” in the sense that beauty exists within us and around us as the light reflects through a rainbow.  The symbol of the rainbow is our sovereign communication with creator.

The principles placed within the four cardinal directions are blessingway teaching translated to English as “the four corn-pollen footsteps”: child-youth-adult-elder.

hozho” – means “natural order.”  The term natural order is temporal time, cardinal directions, cycles of seasons correlated with principles placed in the four cardinal directions for a life journey:

  • EAST – child: sunrise-spring-spiritual moral standards for living
  • SOUTH – youth: noon-summer-learning/work/transportation
  • WEST – parent: sunset-autumn-family/home/story-telling/ceremony
  • NORTH – grandparent: midnight-winter-SELF-reverence/reverence for the natural order/hope/restoring resources
  • CENTER: fireplace/hearth of home – spiritual family love

Once one has experienced a ceremonial change process to correct the state of dis-ease/disease, their journey is in the natural order.  Then we are  living the loving way, in right relationship to the elements of the four cardinal directions.  When we travel through life in this way we are walking in beauty.

Co-Creative Solutions

“Co-creative solutions” means manifesting power within, from creator, that radiates love for ourselves in order to have power with others and eliminates the need for power over.

The spiritual lessen of self-betrayal of our spiritual SELF-identity is corrected by loving the creator the way the creator love us.  Then we can love ourselves the way creator loves us.  Only then can we love others the way creator loves us and the way we love ourselves.  Love must be received and given in this order from the inside-out, not the outside-in.

The context of the co-creative solution begins in the Navajo term “hozho” – meaning “natural order.”  The term natural order is temporal time, cardinal directions, cycles of seasons correlated with principles placed in the four cardinal directions for a life journey:

  • EAST – child: sunrise-spring-spiritual moral standards for living
  • SOUTH – youth: noon-summer-learning/work/transportation
  • WEST – parent: sunset-autumn-family/home/story-telling/ceremony
  • NORTH – grandparent: midnight-winter-SELF-reverence/reverence for the natural order/hope/restoring resources
  • CENTER: fireplace/hearth of home – spiritual family love

The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

Win-win decision making” is discovering and using one’s gifts for collective survival.  Every person’s inherent gift supports another person’s survival.  Every person can give healthy expression to their gifts and everyone benefits by the healthy expression of each person using their creative imagination for collective survival.

To bring a person out of the Inverse thinking system of Dis-Ease/Disease and into a Wellbeing Continuum, we must co-create wellness using an Affirmative thinking system;  we must undo a deficient self image by co-creating life-affirming choices utilizing our sacred-SELF intellect.

To move out of the abyss of coping, we use a healing process that cures the co-opted self that is created by the allopathic disease orientation.  The co-creative solution is discovered using an Affirmative thinking system that can be applied to everyday life situations.

A Ceremonial Change Process

Indigenous Wisdom and Knowledge for living the loving way as designed for the Altai Fellowship August 13th 2011 Journey

The Teaching

The following information is organized within the four phases of an authentic Indigenous Ceremonial Change Process.  Authenticity brings authority because truth is the only real power and truth is our protection of all that is sacred.  The current tyranny in the world is being dismantled by the following unifying principle for collective planetary survival: powerwithin is for powerwith others in order to eliminate powerover others. 

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is a reverent revolution that re-frames inequity in resource distribution away from the forced-choice purchasing of the products and services that support the financial rich, into using one’s inherent gifts for the benefit of each person, their family, community and nation from elder to the youth of the next generation.  The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

I. Naming the out-of-balance condition

Every human political “Empire” throughout history on the planet earth has been organized to oppress and enslave people within governing and religious organizations designed to delay each person’s remembering and reawakening of a true spiritual SELF-identity as a precious child of creator, because they operate from “Consciousness” that leads to “perception” where reality is relative to their perception. The outcome is polarizing into adversary and conflict, then there is no spiritual morality.

All Indigenous prophesies known for centuries predict that the time of silence and persecution of Indigenous people who have the wisdom and knowledge for healing processes that lead to curing, not coping, has ended in this time of awakening to the Conscience and “breaking silence” of exploitation and victimization by oppression of a person’s soul purpose and life mission.

Core Issue-root cause that maintains the out-of-balance condition
The construct and language of historical political governing and religious organizations are designed to cause delay of one’s remembering and reawakening to their soul purpose and life mission as a precious child of creator. Delay of human service to creator, to SELF and to what is good, beautiful and true for women, children and elders, causes suffering. The male gender life task as protector-provider is corrupted to perpetrator and sexual predator in the home, the community and in the government.

All intentions to misguide, mislead, misinform to create misunderstanding for adversary and conflict by an intention and design of governing and religious organization implementation of win-lose decision-making lead, ultimately, to no-win outcomes for everyone. This is the destructive intention that uses technology and information with brute force, that is currently destroying the four sacred elements on the planet: earth-physical, water-emotive, fire-mental and air-spiritual well being.  Corn is a symbol of social and economic well-being.

II. Emptying the obstacles that maintain the root cause
The divine plan for remembering and reawakening humanity is to restore the knowledge of cooperation and collaboration between spiritual beings and earth humane beings in a partnership for redeeming destructive and death-producing choices and the vibratory
consequences that lead people into the materialistic greed abyss by those who intentionally hoard world resources by controlling thinking processes and manipulating people by fear and guilt.The “new group of world servers” are called to change the vibration on the earth plane to love and peace by learning and teaching the “how to” healing process by making win-win constructive and life-affirming choices.

An awakened person is one who has liberated themselves from their deficient self-image and knows that spiritual awakening does not require a remediation process from that deficient self-image in an Inverse thinking system, where remediation is toward some end state. Every person is already equally fore-given a true spiritual SELF-identity as a precious child of creator.

III. Re-framing the co-creative solutions

The “new group of world servers” that are to meet and organize for “planetary alignment” and “world axis alignment” are fulfilling their soul purpose to ground and anchor spiritual energies from the divine beings who are the guiders of the human race toward a collective remembering and reawakening of their true spiritual SELF-identity as a precious child of creator in order to fulfill the divine plan on earth.

When one reclaims their inherent divinity and they know their sacred place in the universe, they can work with the Indigenous wisdom and knowledge because they understand the unifying principles that operate to eliminate the need for powerover in Empires.

VI. Manifesting Indigenous wisdom and knowledge

A liberated person can access accurate spiritual information by revelation from their own soul and from telepathy from divine beings because they know that the interconnectedness of the etheric network is designed to redeem misqualified energies, held in human destructive intention, back into the light to be used for healing of lies and betrayal.

When we operate in the Affirmative thinking system it is from “Conscience” where Indigenous knowledge and wisdom leads to reality as exact because the context is in the natural order. There is group consensus and spiritual morality in win-win decision making.

V. Life application of win-win decision making for universal practical application of co-creative solutions

We are inspired to restore trust and serve creator, SELF and others with powerwithin to have powerwith the divine in the universe. The way to have powerwithin to have powerwith others for congruent win-win decision making is to intend, visualize, affirm, and manifest win-win constructive and life-affirming choices with a sacred SELF-identity as a precious child of creator.  Living the loving way, as a way of life, is hozhooji in the Navajo language.

Living the Loving Way

A Teaching of Indigenous Wisdom and Knowledge

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is hozhooji in the Navajo language.  “Hozho” is an all encompassing concept of holiness and wholeness where there are not competing collectivities representing competing ideologies. “ji” is to sing some one back to health.  All healing ceremonies sing a person back to health.

Hozhooji is the blessing way ceremony for remembering and reawakening to our spiritual SELF-identity as a precious child of creator. The phrase “living the loving way” is the literal translation of a way of life choosing constructive and life-affirming choices – healing, not destroying self and others.

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is a reverent revolution that re-frames inequity in resource distribution away from the forced-choice purchasing of the products and services that support the financial rich, into using one’s inherent gifts for the benefit of each person, their family, community and nation from elder to the youth of the next generation.

The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

Win-win decision making” is discovering and using one’s gifts for collective survival.  Every person’s inherent gift supports another person’s survival.  Every person can give healthy expression to their gifts and everyone benefits by the healthy expression of each person using their creative imagination for collective survival.
