Sending light and love to the great state of North Dakota. Showing that this country was not founded as a Christian nation. The native people that lived here were Pagan people. They had their own beliefs and rituals that carried them through the day. This way of life was taken away and pushed aside leaving no respect for the wind or the earth. Much the same way this new siege is coming in and taking away the rights of those that live here. Sending protective energy out so that the same mistakes are not made again.
Hail North Dakota!
Namaste and Blessed Be
