Hyapatia Lee is the founder of Native Strength, a Native American path to emotional strength and enlightenment based on a centuries-old inter-tribal system.
Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?
The Southeast Bully is the part of our inner self that acts as a bully to our own soul. This bully uses dependency, attachment, judgment, comparison, expectation, self-importance, and the wounded child we experienced when our image makers made us feel unworthy of love to manipulate us. These emotions can stop us from following our Sacred Dream and fulfilling the plans our soul made for us in this life.
Many people accept reincarnation to be a fact. Dr. Jim Tucker at the University of Virginia has studied over 2,500 children who had memories of past lives. Most of these children were living in families that did not embrace reincarnation but were Christian, Catholic, or Jewish and believed in heaven and hell. These children reported memories that included historical facts, as well as other people and former family members from their past life that could be found in records and photos. Many cases were verified by documents that proved what the children were remembering actually took place. The children were carefully monitored to be sure they had never been exposed to anything that would have given them knowledge of the things they reportedly remembered from their past lives. After studying so many children with memories of past lives and confirming facts associated with those lives, Dr. Jim Tucker concluded that reincarnation was real.
The Image Makers
Before we are born, we deliberate with the highest potential of our self, the Chuluamadahey, or the Keepers of our Book of Life. This is represented in the number 18 on what is known as the Children's’ Count, a way that numbers communicate with us here on Earth. This number is also associated with the Hebrew word ‘chai’, meaning ‘alive’, ‘living’, or ‘life’, as in “L’chaim,” a toast to life. We examine the lessons we have yet to learn and design a life that will deliver us the opportunities we need to learn these lessons.
The Crystal Skulls
There are many legends regarding crystal skulls which were associated with the Mayan and other South American tribes and numerous crystal skulls have appeared over the last fifty years claiming to be one of these ancient skulls. A crystal skull was reportedly unearthed on a dig and kept secret by the daughter of the top archaeologists for some reason. Years later, she decided to reveal it. It has been tested and found to have been produced with modern machinery. Of course, Star People could still have manufactured it centuries ago.
Bullies in the Government
The East Bully wants to control our spirit. They may be leaders of cults that dominate people and require no communication with non-members, or they may be dictators who force us to abandon our Sacred Dream, the plan our soul made for this life, in order to serve them or adhere to their standards.
Guilt, Blame, and Shame
Guilt, blame, and shame have only one genuine purpose and that is to lead us to better choices. They should not be used as weapons in the lives of other adults. We need to use these tools in positive ways, not negative ones. When we feel these emotions, they should spur us into evolution. Once these new modalities have been adopted, these three emotions are totally useless and must be abandoned. The only time they should be used again is if we are tempted to slide back into negative behavior. It is senseless to feel guilt over an activity we have long ago abandoned, beating ourselves up over it. The lesson has already been learned. The behavior has been changed. There is no reason to continue to feel guilty over a past that cannot be changed and from which we have learned to do better. We must abandon the guilt as we no longer have a use for it and allow ourselves to move out of the past and into the present.
Telepathy and Quantum Physics
Telepathy is one of the ten magical gifts I have been told by several medicine men and women that we will soon be capable of receiving. Since we are all at different stages in our evolutionary process, I believe we will each be able to receive telepathy only after we have evolved to the point we are capable of practicing it with love and benevolence. Even so, every gift can also become a curse. Our gifts can be double-edged swords we can either use to advance our species or to destroy it. Life is far more precarious than most of us are aware and we must be vigilant to defend its dignity and sanctity.
Aliens, Pot, Native Americans, and Mental Health
What the hell do aliens have to do with pot, Native Americans, and mental health? Quite a bit, actually! Many tribes across the Americas have legends of aliens, or Star People, bringing cannabis to this planet. The Cherokee say that the Star People came from a planet with the same name as the Cherokee word for pot, gatunlati. There are also thousands of stories of Natives being visited by Star People not only in the past but on a continual basis. I was taught that the Star People had also given us an expansive system for emotional development thousands of years ago to help people on Earth find happiness and emotional maturity. I began learning this thorough and complete system in 1986 from medicine men and women in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Hawai’i. I have called this system Native Strength and it offers medicine wheels for managing bullies, motivation, success, empowerment, breaking bad habits, making your dreams come true, predicting where anyone’s focus will be at any given time in their life, and much more. Medicine wheels are used to share knowledge, similar to the way the aliens in the movie Arrival communicated.
Little Jumping Mouse
There once was a mouse. He was a good little mouse. He kept his nose close to the ground like all good mice should. He spent his days collecting and storing grain for his people. One thing bothered him though, he kept hearing a roaring in his ears. Now and then he would ask his friends if they also heard this roar in their ears but they never did. They did not understand what little jumping mouse was talking about and the more he brought it up, the stranger they looked at him. Little jumping mouse decided never to speak of it again. He tried to ignore the sound but there came a day when it simply was no longer possible. He finished his mouse duties and decided to follow the sound in his ears.
Communication with Extraterrestrials
In 1974 a message was sent into space, known as the “Arecibo” message. It was put together by Carl Sagan and his colleagues and was sent into space via radio waves at a special ceremony to celebrate the remodeling of the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. It was the most powerful broadcast ever deliberately beamed out into space. The message was directed at a star cluster sitting approximately 25,000 light years away and consisted of a pictorial message. The radio signal depicted our planet’s location in our solar system, the core principles of our math and science, and the NASA antenna used to transmit the signal. It was hoped that it would be interpreted by an extraterrestrial intelligence. The message also included details about human beings, such as our physical appearance and DNA code.
Cannabis and Native Americans
Native Americans have always respected and used “teaching plants.” By far the most commonly used and most beneficial plant is cannabis or marijuana. Whether it was smoked or eaten, its use has been verified around the world and dates back to the beginning of man himself.
Our Stellar Family
I was taught by my elders that there are twelve members of our ancestral family in the stars and three are directly involved in our planetary family. To be clear, all these Star People are living sentient beings in a physical form. These are not gods or angels, although many people throughout the past have confused them as such. When we are able to communicate with these beings, we will still be in physical form, just as our human ancestors were centuries ago. If we learn these gifts through the help of others, it will in all likelihood be with the direct help of the Star People. There are many legends that tell of Star People bringing us the gift of fire.
