Legal names are given, but Native American names are earned. Gabriel Horn gives a personal account of why and how his Indian name was chosen: “By the time I graduated from college, I had already done my battles for the people. I had protested against stereotypes of Native Americans, I had fought for a Native American literature course on campus, and I had asked for participation in the United Nations. My immediate family believed that I had earned a name. The name came to my uncle, a traditional Cherokee man, who had a vision of a white deer coming to him and singing my name. He knew it was to be White Deer.

"My godmother, my uncle, and some close friends attended the Native American names ceremony. A pipe was filled with tobacco, and offered to each direction, as they called out my name. They called it out to the east, the south, the west, and the north. They called it out to the sky and to the earth. They called it out to the plants. They called it out to the animals. In other words, I was introduced to the universe as White Deer. That was my rebirth. In a sense, I was a born again Indian at that point.” Receiving a new name was a healing experience. I was now completely comfortable with my Indian identity, whereas before I felt fragmented, not totally in touch with who I was.“

Name changes can be physically as well as psychologically healing. Some time later, White Deer became ill, and a longer name was the solution: "I had gotten very sick, and was near death. A very old Ojibwa medicine man from Canada came down to Minnesota. I believe he was over 100 years old, and he didn’t speak any English. During the ceremony of healing for me, a manifestation appeared in the room. At that point, the medicine man said that the entity wanted me to also be called Autumn. I was now White Deer of Autumn. The ceremony ended, and my sickness was healed.

"The name, of course, bestows certain powers and responsibilities. The power of the deer is its awareness, its keenness, and its protective nature. The white is purity, purity of heart, mind, and words. Autumn, I was told, is a time when change is most visible. It’s a time when change is at its most powerful. And so, I was named for that season.”

Native American names can be passed down, as western names often are. The distinction is that you are not stuck with one name all your life. This represents different beliefs about human potential, says White Deer of Autumn: “Crazy Horse passed on his name to his son, who took the name Worm as he got older. So, we can pass on names, too. The idea is that you’re not stuck with the name you were given at birth. In western society, it’s almost as if you can’t change; you can’t evolve; you can’t grow. From a native perspective, your name reflects who you are. White Deer of Autumn reflects what I’ve done. But as I go on in life, I may want to let go of that and take another name. I have that right. So, naming is the ability to evolve and change in your identity. I think this is healing, both physically and emotionally.”

Some people call it negative self talk. I don’t like calling it that because it gives the idea that you are choosing to talk badly about yourself or prevent yourself from accomplishing a goal. I prefer to call it “the voice” in my head. I do not see him as a welcomed guest and sometimes I find myself laughing at the things he says. You can name the voice in your head if it helps you un-identify with it. The number one thing to understand is that we don’t have to listen to or identify with that voice in our heads. Also that it will never go away. If you are waiting for the day its stops telling you to give up, that will never happen. You have to ignore it and go out and do the things that make you happy.

Good evening beautiful humans, 20th of March 2019

Hello everyone sorry I didn’t post earlier I fell asleep when I got home then had to go to kick boxing. What I ate today, the quinoa thing I made yesterday that I had posted for lunch then when I got I home I ate noodles with Alfredo sauce and chips. Then just now I ate carrots and pita chips with hummus and a small piece of apple pie hehehe

Today was not the best I’m very stressed for this upcoming French test. It’s 4hours long and if you don’t get 300/400 you can’t graduate. I’ve been stress eating oof :(

things that happened today (yay)

1) successfully challenged myself by spontaneously switching up meals and snacks I had planned with things my body was craving on a particularly hard day filled with work and doctors appointments

2) very positive doctors appointments and my recovery team told me how proud they are and i was shook and started beaming with happiness (and a ton of happy tears)

3) my sister and I just planned a weekend for me to come visit her in VA which just so happens to be the weekend she’s running her first half marathon and I shall be spontaneously running said half marathon with her and spending a long weekend away. I’m so happy I get to share the experience of a finish (and her FIRST FINISH!!) alongside her 

4) planned to go on a date (actually two) with two guys i have been chatting with. one of them is tomorrow and the other tuesday and i feel like a player kinda 

all in all despite challenges, doubt, and bad body image i’d say im thriving right on ovurrr huuurrrr

🌿🌕So blessed! While I was outside cleaning up the yard and getting ready for this evenings festivities 13 Wild Turkeys casually walked by, only a few feet away. I can’t begin to describe how happy this makes me and the fact that this happened on the first day of Spring, and I asked Great Spirit to show me a sign today! Well, I would say this is a direct message from Spirit!🙌🏼 I have a very strong connection to fowls, especially Turkey and we had the most beautiful family live in our black chestnut tree last year and I got to watch them grow from baby chicks to full grown adults. I loved watching them learn how to fly. And it broke my heart when the coyotes came and the next time I saw them there were only 3 left from the 7 and one of them had a horrible limp:( Last I saw there was only one left from that family and I see her from time to time.💜This just made me so happy. 13 Wild Turkeys. I hear you, Great Spirit. I am ready.✨Seeing a Wild Turkey is a message from Spirit of a great gift that is seeking to find you, will you except this gift? It may mean making a sacrifice or working harder than you ever have before. But this is a gift that could change your life in the most amazing way!🌕🌿 #wildturkey #wildturkeys #turkey #turkeytotem #turkeyspirit #spiritanimal #wisdom #spirituality #blessed #believe #signs #fullmoon #spring #nature #naturelovers #gift #change #blessed #thevelvetlotus

You’re a grown up, so act like one.

Tunnel

As a noun that represents the physical construct, the meaning is clear.

As a sense of vision it is “narrowly” defined be it eyesight or perspective of thought.

As a verb - now that’s when it gets tricky because it it can be an action of body or machine. It can be metaphysical or metaphorical. It can be of another sense that describes a movement forward or progress forward or backward.

I’m currently in a tunnel and I’m tunneling through and now I can see the light on the other side. Whenever I get used to the interior aspects of the tunnel I always see the end. If not I would be entombed and that would be the end.

The end of the tunnel.
