diyi means power, medicine, and spirit. This is the ability to see clearly, to act responsibly, and to be open in the right place in time… Now. The ancients associate diyi with the continuation of the generations, forward and backwards.
diyi means choosing truth above ego. Your questions tin life are clues to the search for your sacred truth. In diyi you cannot lie to protect your ego, you must accept each question as an opportunity to learn more about who you truly are
Accept yourself as you are. Don’t waste your energy in self-criticism.
We are in the physical forms necessary for the work we have been called to do on this plane of existence. All patterns, forms and energetic precepts have value in the natural order of things. Do you suffer from low self esteem? Is this reflected in your general physical health? We each manifest our potential differently, yet beautifully. Each life purpose has its own expression, its own challenges, its own spirit song.
Brought into the Fourth World (time dynamic prior to 2012) under the illusion of alienation many people work themselves to exhaustion, eat to obesity, starve themselves, or over indulge in other patterns of addictive behavior, because they haven’t learned self-acceptance.
Mercilessly self critical, on the run all day spinning their wheels, feeling like little has been accomplished, it becomes an effort to stay alert. Time to oneself is a commodity that very rarely enters the picture.
Schedules are crammed with commitments. When time off is scheduled, there is only collapsed exhaustion. Do you have chronic illness?
I tell you now, you are exceptional, first rate, and yet living in constant fear of criticism, overlooking your own power. Are you stuck and don’t know how to get off the merry go round?
The compulsiveness actually keeps us from addressing our potential. Not only do we take on things that are not our responsibility, we also reduce our innate connection by giving away our power - relegating ourselves to victim status.
With self acceptance, we can be happier and develop stronger connection. As Tlish Diyan, we respect our own patterns and cycles, allowing our sacred identity to express itself.
Compulsively having to live a false agenda creates chaos in our lives. With self-acceptance we release dis-ease.
Take care of your inner child today. Together, you face the adventure of life. - THE CROW
Self acceptance brings humility. We express ourselves openly, without pretense. Because we are centered, neither criticism nor flattery affect us. Validation from others is not required when we know who we are.
We do not interfere or cast judgement. We act with clarity and precision because we recognize we all have our lessons, and we needn’t attend to those belonging to others.
Be grateful for your lessons today and know all is well. - THE FOX
Noninterference doesn’t mean not caring. Far from it. It means transmuting the part of ego that says “You fix me,” or “I can fix them.” We help when asked for help, and also recognize when there is nothing within our capacity to do. Watching life’s changing panorama with patience, acceptance, and a good sense of humor, we never criticize and always support. We accept everyone in their present state of evolution.
Our loving noninterference provides just the support others need to overcome their own victim identity and take charge of their lives.
Look at others, including those that have “wronged” you, and tell yourself “they’re doing the very best in this moment of their healing, just as I am,” then feel the compassion flood into you.
We tell people in the best way we can, to make a choice. We tell them this through our example by making conscious choices that create and affirm a lifestyle of integrity, generosity, abundance and compassion. Our examples open the way for others to share their story, be free and once again find clarity.
We cannot “fix others.” We can cheer them on, but in the long run it is our faith and their determination that make for a solution that lasts. Without fear, or guilt, our momentary attention, our concern and respect for others awakens something deep within them.
diyi is the mixture of noninterference and compassion. We give emotional support while respecting the rights of others to find their own way. Our noninterference frees us from fear, enabling us to participate in the greater harmony.
Your attitude makes this day what it becomes. Meeting it head on, with love, assures you of a lovely day. - THE SQUIRREL
Don’t try. Don’t waste time worrying or making an attempt. Dare, take risks, live with commitment.
Don’t try. DO it. The lesson here is clear: trying is only a half-hearted attempt. Effort without intent will not manifest. Do not try. Do.
Have you been holding yourself back, not giving your full effort (or convincing yourself that you have), because you’re afraid of change, afraid of making a mistake. Ask yourself this, “When I have said ‘try’ about a project, has it been a project I am passionate about?” Do a check in as to why you are doing things. Is it something you are passionate about, or something you feel obligated to do.
Take risks. You learn by experience… by doing. diyi means living with commitment, realizing that life is always in flux and change, that there is no failure, only steps that bring us closer to the truth.
diyi means living with the courage of our beliefs, responsibly co-creating. We come to think for ourselves.
A hundred years ago there were two great teachers, Grandmother Naylin Lagé, and her uncle, the Apache Dreamer, Nochaydelklinne. Nochaydelklinne upheld rituals of connection and life affirmation. He taught patience, reverence of ancestors, and the structure and power of the dream.
Grandmother Naylin Lagé, ever on the move in the Sierra Madre, encouraged flexibility, encouraged compassion, and affirmed the Path of Beauty. Walking with Coyote means to live compassionately, intuitively, flowing with the present moment. Nochaydelklinne taught us structure; Grandmother Naylin Lagé freed us to be our true selves.
One of Grandfather Ten Bears’ stories said that once Nochaydelklinne visited Grandmother Naylin Lagé and was mystified by her power. It was not rational, not predictable. Nochaydelklinne understood the power of the wingged, finned, 4 legged. But he said, “How have you harnessed the power of Kalina, the sun wolf? I know Naylin Lagé and today I see she is a coyote.”
diyi is the power of the coyote, the trickster self, removing old assumptions, beliefs, and judgments that weigh us down.
Today the power of Grandmother Sun Wolf is strong. Messages to conform, to please, to capitulate are being exposed for what they truly are. Walking with Coyote, keeps you from losing yourself.
Do not subordinate yourself. Expand to encircle all of life. Transmuting ego, you experience a spiritual kinship with all of life. Grieve when someone is hurt, rejoice in another’s victory. Humanity comes naturally.
Strengthen your medicine, by knowing it, and then by emphasizing it repeatedly. Focus your medicine, your power, today. - THE DRAGONFLY
Help heal humanity’s soul, by beginning with your own.
Have a reverence for life, a faith in evolution. Let this faith sustain you, and affirm the power of your actions.
Be sustained by your faith. Do not fear change, nor surrender to adversity. Pessimism brings stagnation. Everything comes to a halt. It doesn’t serve anyone. Believe you can make a difference. Acting on this belief, you actualize.
Living in the Now
Don’t be haunted by traumas of the past or anxiety of the future. Accept the gift of Now and make the best use of it.
Choose healing. Say, “I can help it.” Celebrate that you take responsibility for your life today. – THE ARMADILLO
Your full attention is in the power of Now. When you are totally present, you generate a tremendous amount of energy. How rare is it to give your full attention to anything, or anyone? How did you spend today? In internal monologues of worry, future plans, self-criticism? Even while listening to others, were you rehearsing your answers, rehashing about yesterday, or daydreaming about tomorrow?
