Sacred Instructions
An Interview with Sheri Mitchell

May 28, 2018

Interview by
Joanna Harcourt-Smith

In this episode Sherri Mitchell speaks with Joanna about: living in a vibratory universe; the responsibility of being given a spiritual name; the indigenous way of life; recognizing our unity with the foundational elements that create life; the mothering, relational, vibratory nature of the language connected to the land; honoring and revering the original sound that created all living things; “we were never kicked out of the Garden”; the origin of colonization; the deep understanding of the web-of-life teachings; allowing oneself to be open and harmonised with the frequencies of the natural world; “the greatest tragedy that can befall us is to go unimagined”; dreamed by the ancestors; from “normal” to a natural state of being; the peaceful, prayerful stand at Standing Rock as the fulfillment of Crazy Horse’s prophecy; decolonizing our minds; the four pillars for being sovereign and self-determined human beings.
