Sent to me from Wolf Woman Ways. Thank you.
To my knowledge most Native American tribes and nations believe in seven to eight deities. Those being
Great Spirit or Creator: The deity that created all things
The Four Winds and/or Directions – East, South West and North
ans for some Sister Moon.
To end their prayers and/or agree and/or wish a blessing on another person with something positive that has been said the say the word: A’ Ho (pronounced: A as in Ah and Ho as written)
Each tribe or nation has their own word for a greeting. Part of my ancestors are Choctaw and their word for hello is Halito.
If you know any of the greetings for other nations or tribes please share them with us. Thank you
I will be posting information about Goddesses and Gods from different pagan backgrounds with a small amount of information about each one. There is a new sub-heading under Book of Shadows to make it easier to find this topic.
Is there a Goddess and/or God you have heard of but have not found information about? If so please leave a comment with the name of the deity and where you heard it. I will try to find some information about it for you.
You can use this two ways, one as a prayer or two as a spell to empower a black stone. I say it in my prayers every morning and also carry a stone with me anytime I know I will be in a situation that maybe stressful and/or people I will be encountering might have negative feelings or thoughts about me and/or speak nastily to or about me. In other words I carry it almost daily as I never know who or what I might encounter outside my home.
For a spell you will need:
Pocket size Black Stone (Black will draw negativity to itself before it can reach you. Cleanse the stone at least once a week using same spell you use to cleanse it the first time.)
To perform the spell:
First cleanse stone (see – How to Cleanse Objects Using the Elements)
Either in a sacred space or circle say the spell over the stone three times while either holding it in your power hand or touching it with your wand. At the end of the thrid time seal the spell with the words “So mote it be” or whatever words you use to seal your spells.
(For prayer start with the words “Today I ask for help with…”) (For spell start with the words “I empower this stone stone with…”)
Patience, Understanding and Tolerance for better;
Acceptance of people. places. situations, attitudes, how people speak to and about me;
that I might live in better Harmony within myself, home, family, work and world.
