World Peace and Prayer Day / Honouring Sacred Sites Day “All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer” Following the birth of a White Buffalo Calf in 1994, the 19th Generation Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota & Nakota Nations— Chief Arvol Looking Horse, was directed to honour the Four Directions with ceremony on Summer Solstice/June 21st. According to Lakota prophecy, the birth of “Miracle,” a female white buffalo, signalled a time of Earth changes and the coming of The Mending of the Hoop of all Nations. The Summer Solstice is said to be a powerful time to pray for peace and harmony among all Living Beings. Chief Looking Horse believes that this day of collective prayer will create an energy shift to heal the earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward obtaining peace. He believes that it is time all people understand Mother Earth is the Source of life, not a resource. WPPD has been held in the US, Costa Rica, Ireland, S Africa, Australia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and Brazil. June 21st, 2017 will mark the 22nd year of World Peace and Prayer Day / Honouring Sacred Sites Day and will be held in the Hawaiian Islands and sacred sites around the world.

Looking for some pics to share with a friend today and found this pic of Loui that I stole from the advert where I first saw and fell in love with him.
I was looking for a Husky pup, when this little face popped up and I instantly fell in love. Rang the guy at 11pm!!
My friend Lea and I went to pick him up from Lancashire and was greeted by a psycho dog, running round in circles, lunging at my face and biting my nose.
With heavy heart I said I couldnt take him, as I really needed a companion but when his owner told us that he had been re-homed three times already and they brought him back, I had to take him. My heart broke for him and his crazy ways.
He was 8months old when I got him and from being a puppy had spent 8-10hrs a day locked in the kitchen while his owners were at work. Hence his separation anxiety and high stress levels.
Its been a long road with him this past 5yrs, however, he has turned into a beautiful soul. He still has ‘issues’ but then dont we humans too?
After my Jasper went, I didnt think I would ever bond with another dog like that. But Loui is my saviour, if it werent for him id probably still be completely crippled and totally disconnected from my beloved Gaia.
Not sure who rescued who that day but we were meant to find each other ❤
I’m not really a Rap music fan,however I absolutely love this mix by Prolific the Rapper and A Tribe Called Red.
I hope it speaks to you too.
And this one by Taboo. 🙂

Gratitude is the greatest gift you can give yourself this season.
Picture taken at Addingford in Horbury – UK
Giant Hog Weed growing from the bank by the Canal. These are very poisonous, so if you see one DO NOT touch it. They grow over 6ft tall and tower over their 4-5 ft relatives.
Watching these plants made me see the beauty inside even the most feared, that they hold lightness, and it reaffirmed to me that ALL life is Sacred!
They made me smile and feel joyous inside as they waved their arm in the air, ‘like they just don’t care’. Dancing and rejoicing this thing called life, their fall from grace as winter strips them of their bounty, yet still rejoicing as they dance with their relatives in the waters of life.
Arms stretched high, caressing the wind as she carries their song to up to creator. While they bounce along to the rhythm of their beat, connected to our mother and to father sun.
What a beautiful sight it was to see, we stood and watched for a good while before heading on our way, with a little song in my heart and a new beat in my feet.
