What We Do


Acknowledging Your Soul Intention


I am grateful to those who went before me for guidance to travel this day’s path.
I am grateful to those who are yet to come for what this day holds for me.
I am grateful for the courage of my ancestors that fills my veins.
I am grateful for the love my all mankind that rests in my heart.
Of Great Spirit and Man is what I seek.
I ask for the Great Spirit to be at one with the Man and for the Man to walk as one with Great Spirit.

Acknowledging—the phantoms of fear

Grandfather Fear, I thank you for helping me to show-up in my life by teaching me about the four phantoms of fear—fight, flight, freeze and fawn and the alchemical phantom fighter—facing—that leads to the Four Chambered Heart. I acknowledge that in times of true danger, each phantom serves me well and that in imaginative forms of danger from my past, each phantom does not serve my ability to live my life, yet has faithfully responded to my need to hide behind it. I acknowledge that it is only when I assume full responsibility for my life and face the imaginative fears that they will subside and the four phantoms will finally be able to rest.

Honoring—the shadows and stating intentions

Inferiority and the Need to feel victimized, I thank you for helping me find the courage to live my life. Like Wolf and Hawk and the Warrior within, I ask to Show up and be present without preconceived notions, while having the Ability to Take Action and Enforce Boundaries.

Envy and the urge to feel entitled, I thank you for helping me to understand how to respect myself and others. Like Cougar and Raven and the Sage within, I ask for The Ability to Assess, Analyze and Contain, while saying what is so when it is so, without blame or judgment, such as when to .

Resentment and the need to be rescued, I thank you for helping to me to find the love for myself and for others. Like Black Bear and Owl and the Healer within, I ask for The Ability to Connect and Feel, while paying attention to what has heart and meaning.

Apathy and the urge to blame, I thank you for helping to find the generosity within myself and towards others. Like Buffalo and Eagle and the Mature Adult within, I ask for The Ability to Initiate, Support and Create Order while being open to outcome.

I am grateful for the teaching of the four phantoms and how they have acted to protect me when I was not strong enough to fully be myself.

Facing—Claiming One’s Soul Right

Now, I ask all four phantoms—fight, flight, freeze, fawn—to reveal themselves as appropriate to my surviving in dangerous situations and as reminders of how to thrive in my daily life by choosing to consciously live it to the fullest, instead of through the imaginative ghosts from my past.

I ask all shadow behavior—inferiority and victimization, envy and entitlement, resentment and the need to be rescued, apathy and the need to blame—to transform into memories of how I can choose to behave or not, while I seek to live each moment based on the internal authority of whom I am and not what the external world thinks I
should be.


I offer this prayer to the Great Spirit above and within and humbly ask for divine support to live my life to the fullest and bring honor to myself and my people.
