council fire

Do you have a decision to make?

The Sacred Path Card that was pulled for this week’s “Wednesday Wisdom” is the “Council Fire” card. The Native Americans would call a Council Fire when a decision needed to be made that would affect the whole Tribe.  In order to be on the Council, you had to prove you were worthy by possessing certain qualities.  Those chosen were usually the Elders who had a lot of  knowledge and wisdom based on their experiences.  Everyone’s viewpoint is heard and a common decision is reached by a vote.

Consider how your decision affects others and be open to all possibilities.  But whatever you decide, make sure it is based on your truth. Don’t simply make a decision to win other’s approval. Do it because, in your heart of hearts, you know it is the right thing to do.


The time is now…the power is YOU!
