My great aunt was 100% Cherokee, as my Grandmother on my dad's side full blooded as well.

Here the last year I have been embracing my heritage like never before. I love it, and I love the tribes. We are all one together, as we are all one together with everyone else, even nature.

Natives have a lot in common with each other. They love God, and Nature.

I have always called myself a Nature freak lol Mainly because I love to hike. I love everything about the outdoors. Even when it snows.

Below are some photos.

Both of my biological parents were mixed breeds from Browning (Blackfeet res.) MT. But I think this is Intended for the Bombay type of Indians. :love::LOL: I also did an internship at a program named Changing Spirits which was a residential recovery program for alcoholic/addicts. Our texts came from White Bison & Red Road. My late sponsor was Cherokee.

Not a forum for NA but I was hoping to find a thread about the Cherokee at some point. My grandfather was supposedly 1/4 Cherokee...which doesn't make me much of anything as far as tribes are concerned, but I do feel an innate connection to Native Americans.

I can't quite explain it right now, but they seem to have a unique connection to the spiritual world that seem to make them receptive to the Lord in a different fashion.

Very true my friend, I love our ancestors. You are still part of the tribe regardless because of your families background.

So lets make this thread all about native americans 🙃

My dads mom was able to read people very well from her connection I enherited that.

Discernment is awesome to have!!

Yeah I think it's something like natural discernment for some pretty esoteric stuff. Things that are recently coming out in films and new age doctrines but is hard to discern for most people.

I think discernment is something like physical ability though. Some people are built stronger than others, but even the most gifted athlete needs to practice or they will be overcome eventually.

So while I think you can naturally be aware through exposure through generations of things that few people ever are, I also think it presents a responsibility to point out the "fakes" that are being passed off as the Spirit to many just looking for experiences.



The Lord is deep but the way is narrow. For some reason I'm picturing an ocean trench, which I haven't ever pictured in relation to depth. There is a whole ocean and many deep places, MANY are out of bounds. I can't say why this is, or if this analogy is correct, except that it is clear there are aspects of the Lord we aren't allowed to know yet. I think certain areas will be "lighted" when faith becomes sight, but for now they are dark and we have no business being there unless sent.

So in essence, the mystical side I am familiar with, it's found me all my life. I'm super careful though and also impatient (strange mix ;) ) Mysticism isn't necessarily occultism but there is a VERY fine line in areas. There are certainly mysteries of the Lord and private revelation, but discernment is of course critical.



and yeah, the whole connection to the earth... I basically just ignore all that stuff as best I can, bearing it in mind with regard to stewardship.

Ex: skinning the buffalo and leaving it to rot vs using everything that can be utilized from the buffalo down to the marrow.
