Ancient Eskimo Heart-Prayer

Uncle teaches that the Qilaut, or Eskimo Wind Drum, is a circle that has no beginning nor ending, in which we all belong. Only The Great Creator holds the handle, and every time He touches upon the rim, He hears the heart beat of mankind. The stronger the heart beat the healthier mankind is.

Read this powerful heart-prayer from the ancient Eskimo tradition:

My hope is that we will all have a strong heart beat
so we can be healthy together
and since it is your heart beat
every time you talk to your heart
she will always speak back.

The lesson for all of us is to learn how to listen to our hearts.

Inspired by the teachings of Angaangaq, known as "Uncle," an Eskimo-Kalaallit shaman. See his website at Ice Wisdom.

I didn't know that Eskimo means "raw meat eaters". I will definitely refer to them as Inuit!

I would hate to be called a raw meat eater. Mainly because I don't eat meat.

Dale, few health problems? Their mean life expectancy is about 27 years, so I wonder if you'd want to die at 27 with 'few health problems'.
