Thankyou, You have said so much about you and I have said little about me, I am rachel and my children are amethyst and onyx. I was born not far from stonehenge. My step father is part of the stolen generation and was brought up being told he was indian.He had alot of emotional turmoil when he was told in his 30s he was aboriginal, he had to redefine himself. My best freind at high school once said it is not the colour of your skin that makes you aboriginal it is how you repect and love the earth. Thinking back as I type, she probably had a big influence on how my sprituality evolved just from that statement. when we came from england we lived in SA and my mum worked with fred hollows and the pitinjinjarra (forgive my spelling if its wrong) This is where I learnt the beauty of the aboriginal culture and how our white governement do not take the time to learn and adapt to it (they just expected people to adapt or assymilate into a white culture). mum always spoke of how shocked she was AT FIRST becasue she woud arrive at peoples homes and the children would have been gone for weeks "down the track" these were little one under 7. But she quickly learned what that meant, they would leave and follow the train track from place to place, the parents know they were safe becasue it was the aboriginal way to take in family, feed them, care for them and shelter them. Maybe the universe placed us there on purpose because a couple of years later she met my step dad. he still beleived he was indian, when my brother was 6 an old man grabbed his face and said "hello little murry" (we were in qld) my brother asked my mum why he would do that his name wasnt murry....of course we know why that was now his from the pitinjinjarra area without having my maps handy I dont remeber the boundries and names of the tribes and lands.
My brother is currently studying medicine and still sees the total ignorance people have. They dont undertand that being torn from one part of the country and dumped somewhere else is like taking someone from italy to england and saying your part of the land deal with it. You dont have that connection to that land so it makes you feel more disconnected and out of harmony.(please feel free to correct anything I say that may not be right). The aboriginal people have a very stromg connection to the earth, by raping and ravaging it you are destroying the very fabric of our souls. As people walk into the sacred sites and treat them with disrespect it shows on the hearts of souls of the people connected to it. Although I love the european traditions, I am here now and this is my country and my mother, the food I eat and the water I drink comes from her. It hurts me that when I attend a circle we have to call on the guardians and many (including myself) do not know their names. got to go,,thanks again for sharing, i look forward to reading more of your posts and blogs etc.
love, light and many blessings
Thankyou for accepting my request. I would love to make sure my children know and love the guardians of this land, you seem to be passionate about sharing your knowledge.
love, light and many fairy blessings.
Hello there my Wonderful Friend. It has been awhile since I last heard from you. I hope that all is well and that you are progressing down your chosen path. I wanted to tell you that I really enjoy all the photos of the animals and wildlife in your area, we don't see animals like those in S.C. so they are beautiful to admire!
Greetings from the Unites States, from one who understands. I loved your poem, and my husband (Chalice MacGrayland, from my friends list) is acquainted with the Queensland group from years ago, well before it's actual formation. At any rate, I cannot seem to see the link to ask for your friendship, so I shall presume to do it this way, if you wouldn't mind too much..
Thank-you for accepting my friend request :)
Yes i am Australian, i am not aboriginal but i am very interested in learning about the culture and spirituality.
Blessings to you and yours.
P.S love the pic in the post
