I know that many of you have problems remembering what day of the week it is far less the date and even the month. With this much time on most peoples hands they tend to loose track of time and date. I remember back to my wandering years where if someone asked me what time it was I’d say, “Well it’s half past spring”. But that is the way it is when time, date or even month don’t really matter anymore. You begin to follow another dimension of time, Earth Time where the rythms of existence is slowed and your life is based more on seasons, sunrise and sunset and the flow of natures tides of existence rather then the mechanical time of humankind. With this in mind I want to remind you all that tomorrow night, beginning at 5:00 pm and going well past 9:00 pm will be the start of the Pandemics Part II online class. In other words, tomorrow is Friday May 1st. 2020 for those of you who don’t remember what year it is.
To tell you the truth I’ll be glad when this class is all over and for two reasons. One reason is that I will be able to pass onto you these life saving teachings to help you not only flourish when all around you is in collabse but to expand your knowledge of all things of Spirit and Wilderness. The second reason that I’ll be glad when this is finished is that I’ve probably spent more time writing up and researching this online class outline than any other 5 classes combined. Even as I write this I’m still putting the final touches on the outline and as always I probably will not finish until just before the class begins tomorrow night. The biggest challenge for me has been trying to pack as much information and teaching into the class as humanly possible. Again, the date is Thursday, April 30th, 2020. LOL Blessings and In Medicine, Tom
Please don’t wait until the last minute to sign up for the Pandemics Part II online class. Last time Kelly had to work through the night and weekend because so many people waited until the last minute. I’ve told Kelly that cut off for the sign up will be Noon on Friday, May 1st. I’m sorry for this but Kelly is the only person in the office and I don’t want her to get swamped. Blessings and In Medicine, Tom
I thought that the best way to get this out to all of you who are attending the Surviving Pandemics II online class beginning Friday evening is to Post it in this Blog. I want you to be aware that the things that I will be teaching in this Part II class are not just for use in surviving pandemics or for that matter any of the elements of Grandfather’s Prophecy that are fast coming our way. The techniques and teachings will open a huge doorway for all of you and the application of these teachings are expansive and limitless, reaching into all that you do as a Child of the Earth. I would strongly suggest you have a notebook with you while viewing the class, not just to jot down your questions but also stress the various areas of teaching that will have a tremendous impact on your life. Remember that like Grandfather most of my teaching is through the Way of the Coyote and possesses layer after layer of meaning open to anyone seeking the deeper meaning in the teachings. Remember too that none of this is mine, for it is Grandfather and the long list of Elders that searched for the truth from where the teachings are derived.
Beginning today or tomorrow I want all of you who are enrolled in the class to go deep into the Warning Prayer at least 3 or 4 times a day. When you do and if you get that uneasy feeling that we talked about I want you to write it down as in the time, the place and the feelings that comes with that feeling. Going further and deeper with this exercise and no matter how slight the uneasy feeling is, I want you to identify and feel where in your body this feeling effects you. You will find in short order that each different warning hits you differently and in a different part of your body and Soul. Also when those feelings come I want you to research them fully by going from Surrender to Surrender while paying attention to the messages that are revealed.
Another thing that I need you to do is to have 6 identical cups handy during the three sessions of the program/class. Any cup or container will do provided that you can’t tell them apart and that they will hold a liquid. The size of the cups are not important so anything that will hold a few ounces of liquid to 16 ounces will work well enough. I also need you to collect 4 small sticks about the size of a pencil and also collect 4 small stones the size of a marble. Please do not take the sticks or stones from anything you have collected before but rather make this a fresh collection. One last thing I need you to do is to collect some soil in a cup from your yard, garden, park or woods and I will need a second cup of soil collected along a roadway, the busier the roadway the better. We will be using most of these items that you are collection within the first few hours of the program and periodically through the entire series. There will be no time to collect these things when the program begins.
Please don’t forget to go through the Warning Prayer at least 3 times a day and record the results, no matter how slight those feelings might be. This is extremely important. You folks who are long time students, Medicine Society members and Elders please do the Warning Prayer exercise even though I know you have been doing it for a long time. As I said, all the teachings will be new and expansive for everyone. Blessings to all of you, In Medicine, Tom
I hope and I pray that this post finds your and your family healthy and happy. I want to add another fun teaching game for you and the kids to play. It’s simply called the “stalking game” and Grandfather had us play the game often. Basically all that you will need is but two people to play the game. One person will be the stalker and the other will be the spotter. It is best to begin this game, especially when dealing with young children in an open area like a back lawn. As the child’s ability grows you than then move the game into the thicker woods and brush. The better the stalker is the thicker the brush should be.
The game is simple enough in that the spotter stands at the far end of the stalking arena no matter in the open field or the thick brush and turns his back on the stalker. The stalker starts at the far end of the arena or playing field and begins to quietly stalk the spotter. Periodically the spotter will abruptly turn and not matter what position the stalker is in he must freeze motionless. If any movement is observed the stalker is then sent back to the starting position to start over again. If the spotter detects any noise he will turn to where the noise came from and if a stalker made the noise he is sent back to the starting position to start all over. Remember to cut the younger stalkers some slack in that you want to keep this a fun and active game.
Another modification of the game that Grandfather often used is that the stalker, the spotter or both would be blindfolded. If the spotter is blindfolded he or she must pay rapt attention to any noise and if heard the spotter will turn remove the blindfold and bust the stalker that made the noise. The stalkers can also be blindfolded to increase the intensity of the game. Then again both the stalker and spotter can be blindfolded which really makes them push their other senses to the limits. The Coyote Teaching here is that it not only perfects the stalkers ability but also forces them to “sense” either the spotter turning or the stalker moving depending on which position you have chosen. Keep in mind that this exercise can also be done indoors if you can’t easily get outside. Blessings and Enjoy!!! Tom
I’m so sorry about this but I must ask you to please stop harassing the individual that abused the Tracker School email addresses. He informed me that he has been receiving death threats and hate mail and that is not what me or the Tracker School, Grandfather and the Lineage are about. To harbor a grudge, anger, hurt and betrayal is counterproductive. We have a war to fight together, a war to try and save our Sacred Earth Mother. Our numbers are so very few and we cant take part in the battle if along the way we are fighting among ourselves, pointing fingers and diminishing our energy buying into anger. So please stop harassing him.
On another note let me assure you that none of your personal records were compromised. Just the email addresses. We are taking steps now to prevent this from happening again, both through the web watchdogs and the legal elements now involved in this mess. As you know we at the Tracker School do not hand out class contact lists. That we leave in the hands of the class. I believed firmly that mailing lists were highly personal and used as a forum to further skills, ask questions and where people could go to further their education. Never did I think that these class lists, generated by the classes themselves, would be used for self-promotion, airing dirty laundry or advertisement. I must admit that this has really shaken me to the core of my Soul. But please, back off. I hope and pray that this never happens again. As the old saying goes, “People see your deeds but God knows your motives.”
On another vein of thought;
The Part II of the Pandemics online class is just a week away and shortly I will be sending out a Post dealing with things that I need you to do and prepare for the class. By far this Part II has taken me weeks to put together and it has been one monumental challenge but I know that no matter what level of education at the Tracker School you have had this class will rock the foundations of what you know. In Medicine and Blessings, Tom
I’m so very sorry. I feel like I’ve been betrayed, gutted, slapped in the faced. If you received an email that was not generated by me or the Tracker School I apologize for the intrusion into your privacy. A certain individual broke into our data base and subsequently emailed our entire mailing list under the guise that you had been in a class with him. I refuse to step so low and mention the individuals name but it utterly sickens me. This morning I was hit by emails from many of you folks who said I violated their trust by allowing their email address to get out. My attorneys, accountants, agents, doctors and so many other people not even connected to the Tracker School as a student have contacted me asking me what was going on. I am so very sorry for this. Not only was I betrayed by someone I thought I could trust but he also betrayed the Tracker School, the Elders, the Tracker Family and the Keepers of the Wisdom. It sickens me to realize that he also betrayed Grandfather and the Ancient Lineage. Right now the matter is in our attorneys hands because this is blatant theft. Again, I’m so very sorry for all of this. With all that is going on in the world this is the last thing I needed to happen. Blessings and In Medicine, Tom
Ps; I want to assure all of you that this will not happen again. I’m having a phone meeting with our attorneys who have been in contact with the FBI and we will make sure that all private information is protected. I’m in utter shock over all of this.
I hope you have been enjoying the exercises for your children and grandchildren that I have included in my past posts. Of course there is many more to come but at this point I just wanted to point out that all of these posts both in the past and the future came from Grandfather and the lineage of elders. With that being said you do realize of course that all of them are steeped in the Way of the Coyote, meaning that beyond the obvious teachings there are layer upon layer of deeper teachings both physical and spiritual. What is so important and I beg everyone to do this is to work with your children on these projects. By doing so you will experience a tremendous bonding and of course hours of fun. So many parents have told me that they actually got more from the exercises than their kids. That for me is a beautiful example of the Coyote going to work.
One thing I do want to say is that you and your children should start putting together your own medicinal herbal garden. By selecting plants in your area that have medicinal values, planting the seeds or the emerging plants you create a garden that is not only highly medicinal but a tremendous learning experience for both you and the kids. These gardens can be done in the classic garden way by creating a border of old logs, adding the proper soil, fencing it in and/or setting aside part of your normal garden just for herbs. It’s also a good idea to label each plant or seeded area so you and the kids can watch them grow. Then when the time comes and the need arises you can go right to your garden and make up the herbal mix from the plants you will know intimately. I also stress planting edible wild plants and as they grow to maturity harvest them with the kids and add them to a meal.
When creating these edible/medicinal herbal gardens make note of the type of soil each plant prefers. For instance some plants like acidic soil, other plants like very damp soil while other plants like the classic garden soil. Always match the plant to the soil they like to grow in. This way you maximize their medicinal qualities and get stronger healthier plants. Remember to save the seeds you don’t use so that you can plant them in areas that have been damaged by carelessness or neglect or use them for next years crop. Working together with your children research each plant thoroughly using several field guides to cross reference. This way the wisdom of the plants stick with the kids. Again, Enjoy and In Medicine, Tom
