“We have to move into radical self love and radical self trust, because we have that knowledge in our biology. We have that knowledge in our spirit. We have that knowledge and our connection to all the life that came before, that has the wisdom to draw in what we are so deeply searching for at this time.” ~ Pat McCabe – Woman Stands Shining of the Diné Nation and Lakota Spiritual Way of Life
In this podcast, which starts at 7:45, Pat shares about the practice of listening to Earth, which requires us to acknowledge that different paradigms co-exist and that we have different ways of being human outside of modern world paradigms. Pat shares her personal stories and encounters with Mother Earth and how she transitioned from a place of deep intellect to a way of somatic knowing. We learn that Earth is always present if we listen and acknowledge ourselves as her beloved children.
She also shares how pre-colonialism, indigenous civilisations cultivated ways of knowing that bypassed intellect. We hear how they increased abundance and biodiversity creating ways to thrive continents as living organisms where humans were gifts that travelled roads of kinship to share knowledge and cultural cross-pollination. She talks about how the loss of their elders during the pandemic means devastating consequences for humanity due to losing their vital knowledge, language, teachings and ceremony.
Despite these challenges, Pat believes that possibilities are humming in the air that may shift our collective experience of isolation leading us into co-creation of new structures with life at the centre of their being. She reveals that she has been called to lead change of our dividend paradigms working with the world’s wealth holders to step out of old agreements from investments to restorations activating our radical self love, self trust and our freewill to transform money powers to serve the future of humanity and Mother Earth.
