How Believing In Yourself Can Let You Achieve Anything


A bit of universal wisdom, Native American style

Here is something very important for us to remember, and especially important to teach the children. . . .


Believe in beauty, for the Earth Mother
is covered with beauty.

Believe in love, for your Earth Mother and
Sky Father love you.

Believe in magic, and you release your soul
from the prison
your mind tries to build around it.

Above all, don't be afraid, the Great Spirit
provides all that is needed.
Believe in your medicine.

Believe in the work you are doing
to become an instrument of
the Great Spirit's will.

Believe you are where you should be.

Believe that your life is progressing
to its proper destiny.

Believe in beauty.
Believe in love.
Believe in magic.
And you will realize you are truly beautiful, loving, and magical.
