A Thank you from Sherwyn

Thank you to all who helped over the last few weeks with prayers and donations for They Came and Blessed his Pipe Man, Sherwyn. Here is a letter of thanks from Sherwyn, detailing his recovery and the shift this triggered with the IHS (Indian Health Services)


First, I want to say Pidamayedo, Nina Wopida Tanka (Thank you, I have great appreciation) to all of you who made prayers and offerings for my recovery. Your prayers have been accepted and they have been felt by me in all the aspects of my nature.

If I were to use percentages to describe my health right now, I'd say that I'm about 98% recovered. I have returned from the hospital in Minneapolis, MN on Saturday night from the ERCP procedure that went really well. Considering that the doctors couldn't find one of the stents. The one that they did find was removed without any problem and there were no leaks in my bile duct walls or intestine. I know that the one stent that wasn't found was removed by the Spirit through Prayer. This I felt inside of my body as they came and did their healing work on me. When I would feel this, I would lay back, pray and say, "I accept the Prayer and Healing Love & Light. Your Prayers are powerful. I am now well and whole again, ready & able to return to the Sun Dance Altar.

I did feel like someone beat the crap out of me on Saturday though. My body was so achy that I couldn't laugh, sneeze, cough, swallow or eat very well. Sunday was better. I just kept moving around the yard, working to prepare for my special day on October 10th. My body totally enjoyed the freedom to be well and able to move without restrictions. So, I built a willow shelter in my yard 48 feet long by 15 feet wide. My Wakankiciyuzapi Oicie will be beautiful.

I'm honored to be part of a Spiritual Unfoldment for so many in the world. This whole experience wasn't just about me and my health. It was about all of you and how you came together in a single focus to make a beautiful thing happen for yourselves, one another, Mother Earth, Grandmother Universe and Creator by utilizing the Power of Love. That was the lesson.

The IHS on the other hand is now undergoing an investigation. That too was part of the lesson. We shed so much light on a problem that affected so many other people across Indian Country. The negligence and mistreatment and bad patient care is rampant in most Indian Health Services hospitals and clinics. Due to the IHS decision to not fund my surgical procedure, I was forced to look for alternative ways to complete my healing process. This created a focus on the IHS that was ignored and by-passed for too long. I had to contact my State Senators and Representatives to put pressure on the IHS, which in turn created an official investigation of the IHS. We pray that this will make a significant improvement to Indian Country in the United States.

Just this morning, on the local news one of the Top Stories is a meeting taking place in Sioux Falls,SD regarding the official investigation of the IHS. The newspapers all have stories about incidents occurring in the IHS clinics and hospitals. So, things are moving and things will get better. There is a national focus on the IHS to make changes to improve patient care. Thank you all for your help in that area. It is greatly appreciated.

Urgent Call to help Native American Teacher have Surgery

Urgent Call to help Native American Sundance Chief, Speaker, Teacher, Artist and Friend Sherwyn Zephier

Surgery Scheduled for September 30: $15 000 needs to be raised
Please donate if you can! Prayers are also appreciated.

Please pass this email on to anyone you feel would be interested in helping. Thank you.

Hello all,

Our good friend Sherwyn Zephier, They-Came-And-Blessed-His-Pipe-Man (Ta Canupa Yuwakanpi Wicasa), Yankton Sioux Sundance Chief (Ihunktowan Oyate) is in urgent need of an important surgery. He was scheduled to have it a couple of weeks ago, when the IHS (Indian Health Services) informed him that they had run out of money, and that he would have to pay for the procedure himself! The cost is $15, 000 USD.

Sherwyn is an incredible, humble and extremely positive, very high vibration man. Christian and I spent a lot of time with him and his brother Chief Golden Light Eagle on our recent trip to the US. They put all their heart and soul into creating the Star Knowledge Conferences, teaching and speaking all over Turtle Island (the U.S) to help awaken our brothers and sisters. You can watch Sherwyn's talk at the conference here:

If you feel called to assist and are able to donate big or small, please go here and scroll down to the Help Uncle Sherwyn donation button:

Your prayers are also appreciated.

Sherwyn has written a letter to explain his current situation. Here is an excerpt:


I normally don't ask for help for myself for anything, but I have an emergency health situation.

I would like to make a request to all relatives of Love, Light, Peace, Unity, Harmony, Truth, Freedom and participants of the Sacred Altars of Mother Earth for financial help to complete my healing process.
If you can, there is a donation button at for those who can help. This is my plea to all who have Loving, Sacred Open Hearts and can afford to assist me with some healing help. I welcome your Prayers, Love and Light as well. You are all Healers.

I pray that those who know that this is an important time of Mother Earth. It is a time of Dreams, Dream a Dream. It is a time of Visions, Seek a Vision. The need is out there for help for worthy causes to those who walk with Spirit to do all that they can to help one another in any way possible. This will not only help to raise your own vibration and Spiritual Evolution, but also that of Mother Earth. I pray that all the Angels of Creation hear my prayer and plea for healing help. In Love & Light.

They Came And Blessed His Pipe Man,

Sherwyn Zephier

Mitakuye Oyasin,

Latest Messages by Dana on Spirit Library:



The Power of the 13: (Inspired by last month's Friday the 13th) Today is Friday the 13th, a day that lots of people associate with 'bad luck'. But did you ever stop to think why '13' is known as an unlucky number? We need to go back to a time when the Divine Feminine was honoured through Earth-based 'Mother Goddess' religions, a time when people followed a natural 13 moon Lunar Calendar, celebrated the changing seasons of the Earth, and followed the movements of the Cosmos.  Read rest here:

A Return to Natural Time: ONCE UPON A TIME most people lived in harmony with the cycles of nature. They were in tune with the flows of the earth and the cosmos, and walked in step with this natural rhythm. They looked up at the stars and used the sky as a map, knowing that we are one part of a universal family who share a spiritual home. They understood the connection and influence between each part of this family and worked in synergy with the movements of the sun, the moon and the planets....Read rest here:

Sep Monthly Visions: Life is but a Dream - and You are the Architect!

September 2010 Monthly Visions: Life is but a Dream –  and You are the Architect!
"What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep, you went to heaven and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if when you awoke, you had the flower in your hand? Ah, what then?” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I saw the movie Inception last week. I loved it because it so fantastically reminded me of the increasingly blurry lines between our current reality and dream reality. In the movie Leonardo di Caprio plays the role of a ‘dream architect’ whose job it is to ‘insert’ an idea into a person’s subconscious, with the goal being the person is influenced to do something in his waking life that he otherwise wouldn’t have. The ‘dream architect’ can insert - or steal - ideas by creating and entering a shared dreamspace.  The ‘dream’ feels so real, that all the people working on the job carry with them a small totem that will tell them whether they are in a dream reality or in their usual reality. For example di Caprio has a spinning top that spins without toppling over if he is in a dreamworld.
            While watching the movie, I thought of something my guides tell me all the time ‘reality is whatever you think it is.’  On its simplest level this means that your perception determines whether you think an experience is great or hard or transformative or abundant or lacking. We all have numerous layers of mental and emotional energy influencing our perception, and that’s why no two people are ever truly living in the same reality even if they are sharing an experience. On a more physically tangible level it means exactly what it says; reality is whatever you think it is. Your life today is exactly a snapshot of what you at one point thought, felt and believed.  Your health, bank account, home, relationships and work are direct physical representations showing you really clearly the focus and flavour of your dominating thoughts, feelings and beliefs. The exciting thing is, we are all now waking up to the realisation that we are creating as we go! We are consciously creating as opposed to subconsciously creating.
What does this mean? It means that the state of your health or bank account today doesn’t have anything to do with how those things are going to look tomorrow – unless you want them to. They are simply a result of what you were predominantly focusing on whilst in your ‘dream architect’ chair in the days, months and years up until now.  You are living your own personal movie. You are living, and creating, your own personal dream. The only reason we repeat scenes is because no-one taught us that we don’t have to! No-one taught us that we are the writers of our own script, we are the architects of our own dream, and we can design our reality in the way that we want.
We have been taught that our vibrational energy reality is our dream world, and our physical reality is our real world, when quite the opposite seems to be true. Our vibrational energy reality is more our real world, as that is where our true power to create lies. That is where our tools of thought, belief and feeling lie. That is where our sabotaging issues and old patterns lie. If we want to change anything in our life, we have to go into our vibrational energy fields because that’s where everything originates! Energy is the play-doh of the universe. You can mould it and tweak it and use it any way you like. It will show up in your life in exactly the way you think it will. Our physical reality is simply a result of our energetic play.
Our higher self predominantly exists in the higher vibrational energy fields, so for anyone reading thinking, well we can’t override our soul’s higher need to experience something we wouldn’t necessarily consciously choose for the purposes of growth, or we shouldn’t be trying to manifest something that isn’t in alignment with our authentic desire, I’m not suggesting that in connecting to our ‘dream architect’ we turn into ego control freaks. I don’t recommend putting our ego in charge of our dream architecture. Ideally, we want to step into our ‘dream architect’ role in alignment with our authentic and higher self. Remembering your ‘dream architect’ role is a gift to be used wisely.  It is a positive and exciting sign that millions of people around the world are remembering this gift, because it is a sign I believe that collectively we are entering the maturity level required to consciously and responsibly use it.
Many people are now finding themselves awakening from the illusion that our physical world is the more ‘real’ world or the only world, and rubbing sleep from their eyes to see that there is another, greater world available to them. This can actually feel quite confusing, shocking and even disorientating at first. It reminds me of Jim Carrey’s character in The Truman Show, finding out that his whole life has been one big reality show, and after years of thinking life had to be one way, finding out that life is running on a whole other ballgame of rules now.
Even those of us who have felt pretty awake for a long time can find it hard to let go of the mind’s grip on the old reality, on the ego’s insistence that ‘Some things just have to be hard’ or ‘It takes money to live and I can’t make money doing what I love’.  As Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you will always be right.” Watch your thoughts now more than ever.  Do you ever think ‘that’s just the way it has to be’ or is there anything you think would be impossible to achieve? Do you have a dream or goal that you keep repressing because you just can’t imagine how it could happen? What if you started imagining it happening? What if you decided to play with this idea of being your own ‘dream architect’? What would your dream look like? What would you dream into being? If you could create your dreamscape, your world, with no limits, what would it look like?
“There is no use trying, said Alice; one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
- Lewis Carroll
Our biggest obstacle is our own mind’s lack of belief in the reality and validity of the  ‘dream’ world and our ego’s lack of belief in anything that it can’t see, hear, touch, taste or smell with its five senses.  The ‘dream world’ exists on a higher vibration, and so of course the mind can’t logically understand it nor can the ego perceive it! It’s like someone with access to only 5 public television stations refusing rigidly to accept that there are literally thousands of other shows available out there to the many people hooked up to satellite!
Sometimes it isn’t our refusal to believe that stops us from fully opening to our dream reality, it’s a lack of a frame of reference – we simply have never had this great new experience before. I’ve been seeing a lot of clients lately who’ve made the quantum leap from being in unhappy marriages to meeting their soulmate, from existing in unfulfilling jobs to suddenly find themselves retrenched and free to finally do what they’ve always wanted to do.  Others are receiving unexpected travel invitations or financial gifts. It’s as if someone is tearing down the veils and gleefully shouting “Welcome to Fairy-tale Land where all your dreams come true! Come in, come in, there’s so much to see and even more to do!” What do most of us do when this happens? We nervously hang out by the curtain, only daring to take a little peek at this mysterious up-until-now elusive Fairy-tale Land.  I mean, meeting soulmates and doing what you love for a living only happens in fairytales, and fairytales aren’t real are they? Well guess what? They are meant to be real!
Our fairytale life was always meant to be our real life. Many of us are awakening to that life now, but we have struggled for so long in the old dream, that we came to believe the old dream was our reality and are finding it hard to let go! On top of that, others try to convince you that you are dreaming for believing in Fairytale Land and ask you to wake up and get real and get back into the real world, which is actually the old dream world that you came here to wake up from!!!
I’m passionate about using our awakening not just for our personal lives, but seeing our personal awakening as an integral part of a bigger picture: the awakening of a new, more empowered humanity and Earth. So, I don’t want to insensitively insinuate that in our new world there are no problems and everything is perfect and that somehow we have no more people living in poverty or poor health or that we have no responsibility to those still living that reality. (Although I’m pretty sure that in time our future will look more and more balanced and wonderful for more and more people). Rather, our newly constructed world is a place and space from which we can use our consciousness more, well, consciously! We can use it to move through our problems, be they personal or international, in a more harmonious way. We can use it to help our brothers and sisters in a more practical, useful way. We can use it to interact with our Earth in a more considerate way. Again, there is a big difference between being a dream architect from your ego self, or a dream architect from your authentic and higher self.
So step into your Dream Architect self and start constructing! Your tools are your thoughts, beliefs and feelings. Your power cord is your connection to Source Energy which very handily also provides you with a trusty GPS that appears as your intuition and synchronicity.  Your tools, power cord and GPS will naturally lead you to the actions and opportunities that will help your dreamscape materialise in the physical. Construct with the attitude that nothing is impossible and everything is possible. It happens in your dreams all the time ‘I was sitting on a horse and it turned into a car and then suddenly I was in Paris’. So, if it can happen in your dreams, it can happen in your physical life, because on some level of consciousness it happened!!
When our mind and ego thinks we’re just playing or imagining or dreaming, the defences go down. So, get out your journal and have a play with this: “If life was a dream ........” Include information about every area of your life, and even extend it to information about how you see your ideal greater world.  Particularly include things that make you feel happy, because it’s the ‘feeling happy’ tool that is one of the most powerful in your construction kit. Have fun!!
