Native American wisdom and inspiration
To “make medicine” is to engage upon a special period of fasting, thanksgiving, prayer, and self-denial, even of self-torture. The procedure is entirely a devotional exercise. The purpose is to subdue the passions of the flesh and to improve the spiritual self. The bodily abstinence and the mental concentration upon lofty thoughts cleanse both the body and the soul and put them in health. Then the individual mind gets closer toward conformity with the mind of Great Medicine above us.

Step 2: Breathe In and Breathe out slowly: calms your mind, relaxes your body and renews your spirit. Gives time for the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts, words, and actions. Disengage from the situation when appropriate. “Jesus, I trust you.”
Step 3: Love: wrap you and the person(s) or situation in the white light of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and peace. Pray for those who persecute you. “Jesus I love you.”
As Jesus is all and in all, we have been given the mandate to love one another.
Jesus Christ is the game changer…Jesus, I need you, trust you and love you.
Unite all in Love for God is Love!
