Hi :)

I am starlight3263, my journey began in 2006 when I started
to get into wicca, and found out so many things about my past lives, I am also a medium/channel, I was told that I am cherokee
but there is a strange story behind that and I am still trying to find out about it, I do work with the spirits of light, and I channel them as well.
Light, love, peace and hugs :)

First off, Hello and welcome to the site.

Second off, what does your religion have to do with us? That's all fine and dandy that you do work with spirits. And Wicca is your religious preference, just as some people choose Christianity, Judaism, etc. But it has little to nothing to do with the native community at all.

If you are here to get assistance in possibly finding if there is any truth to your Cherokee heritage and connect with the native community, alright. But please be advised that it's not wise to confuse our Culture with a Religion/spirituality.

No offense taken at all. It just raises eyebrows when the first thing out of someone's mouth is about their spirituality (or many other topics of interest), even before the information that is relevant to the group they're introducing themselves to. ;)

Welcome to powwows.com

Starlight, in some Native communities it is considered inappropriate or unwise to discuss spiritual matters with strangers. In most of our traditions these things are treated with a special respect and protectiveness that prohibits the casual sharing of spiritual information. Further, since the lost white guy thought he found Cipango, our traditional ways have been suppressed, outlawed, ramsacked and grotesquely distorted. So many of us are deeply distrustful of those who come to us seeking or seeming to seek these things. While we understand that in most western traditions things are different, it can still be off-putting when a stranger begins their conversation in this sensitive area.

That said, enjoy your visit and have some virtual frybread while you're here :)

What was your spirit doing before 2006?

My spirit has been on this journey since I came into this world.

Am I missing something?

unfortunatly some modern cultures (or lack of) don't have any real spirituality involved during upbringing.... some are left to their own devices to discover that we are more than just meat.... hence a lot of 'late' awakenings.... more power to all on their own quest towards truth....

Can you expound on 'some modern cultures'?

Are you describing demographic culture or racial culture.

You see, I was brought up in a racial culture within a demographic culture.

And it's all how you approach cultures 'outside' of your own.

Let's take you for instance. You've been being watched by many since the day you got here. You came in a respectful way, not trying to 'outNDN the NDN'. And while some may think this is only an internet board, many of us know a person, who knows a person, who knows a person, from your area.

Now let's take the OP. First words out of their cyber mouth was 'spirituallity found in 2006'.

Now, in our racial culture, the respectful person comes in and gets coffee. What do you think happens to the other person? Read the posts from those above.

What do you, Mr. Muttly, get out of poems written about 'spirit guides'. Now I bet you can tell me of the storm fingers coming over the mountains at Arlee while your camping in a teepee or tent.

See what we see? But alas, you are correct. This is better discussed in a different forum over a cup of coffee and some frybread.

Yes, i think i see your point and agree that one must approach all others in a respectful manner regardless of where any cultural lines are drawn, and the brash and bold will be held at arms length or shunned completely (for good reason). Have to admit I got a HUGE LAUGH from some of the responses above, still snickering....

"Now let's take the OP. First words out of the cyber mouth was 'spirituallity found in 2006'." to me; spoken as a child would recount to adults their awakening from a deep sleep for the first time.. I guess I tend to give a wide degree of tolerance to the under informed....

"What do you, Mr. Muttly, get out of poems written about 'spirit guides'. Now I bet you can tell me of the storm fingers coming over the mountains at Arlee while your camping in a teepee or tent."
for me, others words trying to describe the undescribable only serve to mark their progress (or lack of) toward ultimate understanding. i'm a lousy poet and would beat up the words with the best of 'em....

I've got the coffee on....
