Electrifying and Engaging Speaker ~ Channeling the Wisdom Of The Ancient Masters

“Life is brief in the physical body. Go out and play with yours. Discover the world around you for it is beautiful. As you travel upon the Earth in appreciation, you will discover so much more of her to appreciate. Live your lives with abandon, respecting the others along the way. Treat them as you would wish to experience and only joy will find you in its embrace.”

    ~The Ancients Speak  

Statement from Elder Joseph Greywolf— “Powerful energies are flowing through you to be expressed in the world. Ancient Divine Sacred Oracular, this is “knowing” expressed orally. You are speaking in the tongue of the Lakota.”

Words of wisdom from the ancient adepts, and the masters resonating on the planet. From the far corners of the planet have lived these beings of great spiritual knowledge. At one with the elements, nature was honored and her resources available for all to use

The power of mind and the fluidity of energy and vibration, creates a tapestry of sound, which in its cosmic sense creates worlds. In the micro experience of the universe in man, it is his own world that he creates. The potential in the being is brought forward through the effort to wake up. I receive impulses which as they exit my mouth form words which were spoken long ago, yet their vibration lives on to be interpreted by you.
