An excerpt is below, click title for entire article:

Carol Hiltner has been working with, and appreciating the spiritual gifts of Dineh wisdom-keeper Patricia Anne Davis for several years now. An authentic Indigenous medicine person, both through initiation and lineage descent, Patricia’s work centers around translating the sacred thinking process which frames the Dineh language into English. Of late her work has stepped up because the world is changing, because the times demand it, and because the ancient Indigenous teachings hold the key to things that will help us remember how to live. You are about to read about the “Ceremonial Change Process”, a practical healing process that arises out of the sacred wisdom of the Dineh. This information really packs a punch, so give yourself time to take it all in and let it go deep enough to strengthen your connection to Spirit.

1) She is providing ceremonial structure to an open group from four continents, called the Altai Fellowship (https://altaifellowship.wordpress.com). On August 13th at the foot of sacred Mt. Bellukha in the Altai Mountains of Siberia, the fellowship will be singing open an energy portal. They will tap into a “reserve” egg of life force that has been prepared by the Brotherhood of Light for Mother Earth in time of need. Over the following week, will transmit the energy onto the global light grid, to be grounded by light workers around the world. Due to border-related travel restrictions, it is not possible for additional people to be at Mt. Belukha to transmit. However, people all over the world are encouraged to ground the energy locally, amplifying their effectiveness by gathering groups. Preparatory ceremony for grounding groups will begin on July 30th. All information is online at https://altaifellowship.wordpress.com.

2) Both formally under the auspices of UNESCO, and informally in gatherings,she is sharing the Ceremonial Change Process in her powerfully experiential way, with local Altai people, educators, and government officials.

3) Through these activities (especially by facilitation of the global grounding groups), she is fulfilling worldwide Indigenous prophecies of the rebalancing of human intention from destructive to constructive within the natural order.

The Blessingway

by Patricia Anne Davis

Blessingwayhozhooji: a ceremony to awaken one to natural order (hozho); choosing constructive and life-affirming choices; healing from intentions and decisions that destroy oneself and others.

Navajo ceremonies do not require a conversion process of taking away the precious child within the natural order, and replacing this spiritual SELF-identity with a deficient self-image that has to be re-mediated to some desired end state of progress.

Once awakened to the natural order, we begin living the loving wayhozhooji: literal translation of the blessingway ceremony as translated by my paternal aunt. It is a way of living in reverent revolution, of making decisions that are constructive and life affirming.

Two main ceremonies: Protectionway and Blessingway

These two main ceremonies offer protection from contaminants like the maladaptive emotions of hate, jealousy, anger, guilt, fear, etc. and toxins from the environment.

Five major ceremonies: As five-fingered people, this corresponds to five major ceremonies that every child in the world could benefit by.

  1. Blessingway: the blessing way honors the divine feminine as a nurturer.
  2. Protectionway: divine masculine as a protector-provider.
  3. Purification and cleansing: numerous with specific names for specific purposes.
  4. Spiritual renewal: a nine-day ceremony for spiritual renewal.
  5. Journey to spirit world: the ceremony for a person on their journey to the spirit world.

Patricia's Graphic for the Ceremonial Change ProcessOpen vs Closed System

To the left, you will find a graphic representation of the transcendence that occurs when the Closed System of Disease that is designed for failure is re-framed into the Open system of the Natural Order during the Ceremonial Change Process.

The first thing to understand about the Navajo language is that it is spoken in an Affirmative thinking system within the natural order as described in the examples of time and cardinal direction correlated with blessing way principles moving clockwise.

Typically, English is spoken symbolically in a triangle and in a different thinking system.  It is in the context of hierarchy, patriarchy and describes everyone in their deficient self-image, which must be re-mediated into some end-state of civilization or enlightenment.

English is abstract.  It is a trade and commerce language.  Navajo is descriptive and exact.  Therefore, healing ceremonies are exact and actual in the natural order, which is not religion, philosophy or theory.

There are four phases to every healing process that leads to curing, not coping.  Before defining them, one must know that the healing process does not exist in the English language thinking system, but it can be described to convey the integrity of the sacred meaning of Navajo words.

The term “Navajo” is an imposed name.  We Dineh have several spiritual names that identify us to the creator as a precious child of divine creation, made of earth-physical, water-emotive, fire-mental and air-spiritual.  Corn is the symbol of food as social medicine within the economic relationships of the clan system.  Our spiritual names are inclusive and universal in application to all people. One name is “earth-surface people”, another is “five-fingered” people and another is the affirmation: “I am a precious child of creator”.

Consequences of Closed System Thinking

When a person makes decisions that are destructive and death-producing, this is considered misuse of thinking by using thinking for what it is not for.  All ceremonies correct erroneous thinking that “tell” the body wrong information.  Every out-of-balance condition is a consequence of saying “yes” to destructive and death-producing choices and saying “no” to constructive and life-affirming choices.

When a person denies the unifying principle that all creation is Inter-related, this is “stress”.  All of the diseases are a consequence of denying our oneness with the creator’s will-to-love.  All Navajo healing ceremonies reawaken a person to their true spiritual Self-identity as a precious child of creator made of the four sacred  elements: air-spiritual; fire-mental; water-emotive; earth-physical body.  When any one of these elements is out of balance, there is dis-ease with creator’s will-to-love that manifests as disease.

Living Hozho, in the Natural Order

The Navajo language is a spiritual language spoken with living words that manifest vibrations for affirming truth in the laws of nature or the natural order of time and direction from East-thinking, West-planning, South-decision making for collective survival and North-equity in restoring resources to the next generation moving clockwise within temporal time and cardinal direction.

For example: sunrise, mid-day, sunset, mid-night; spring, summer, fall, winter; child, youth, adult, and elder.  Also, white people, red people, yellow people and black people, all born equal in the sacred circle of life within the holiness and wholeness of hozho.  There is no concept of separation from creator or from the natural order.  There is only the principle of making constructive and life-affirming choices.

A Ceremonial Change Process designed for the Altai Fellowship


Patricia Anne Davis, MA Choctaw-Navajo/Chahta-Dineh May 22, 2011:Tucson, AZ

Purpose of My Travel to Altai Siberia, Russia

I am an authentic Indigenous medicine person by tribal lineage, initiation, training and experience. I was previously invited to travel to Altai Siberia, Russia a few years ago, but that trip for cross-cultural exchange was cancelled. In the years between then and now, I have actively participated in Altai Mir University fundraising events, for the Indigenous Altai people’s intention for maintaining their aboriginal land status, in a small but powerful way. Also, I facilitated a spiritual connecting ceremony with the land and people of Altai and with the organizers and sponsors of this upcoming trip.

I am a person who has held wisdom and knowledge for a lifetime regarding a universal process of healing that leads to curing, not coping at any level, including cosmic-planetary interaction with divine beings who are the guiders of humanity. In this light, the timing for me to travel to Altai is appropriate to fulfilling worldwide Indigenous prophesies about re-balancing spiritual human intention within the natural order for accelerating a remembering and reawakening to harmonious living on mother earth for collective survival.

The Teaching

The following information is organized within the four phases of an authentic Indigenous Ceremonial Change Process.  Authenticity brings authority because truth is the only real power and truth is our protection of all that is sacred.  The current tyranny in the world is being dismantled by the following unifying principle for collective planetary survival: powerwithin is for powerwith others in order to eliminate powerover others. 

Living the loving way, as a way of life, is a reverent revolution that re-frames inequity in resource distribution away from the forced-choice purchasing of the products and services that support the financial rich, into using one’s inherent gifts for the benefit of each person, their family, community and nation from elder to the youth of the next generation.  The spiritual lesson in these crisis times and awakening of the conscience is that win-lose decisions create no-win for everyone.  Thus, each person is requested to learn why and how to make decisions for win-win, away from destructive and death-producing choices, toward constructive and life-affirming choices.

The portal opening expedition and the global grounding of the released energy have been organized within the four phases of the Ceremonial Change Process. We are currently using the process both intra-personally and interpersonally, as well as extending it externally to our global mission. Even though group members are in service to the good of humanity, they are still in a process of curing themselves by changing their thinking system from Eurocentric to natural order. Thus, the general descriptions of the steps apply to them.

I. Naming the out-of-balance condition
The core issue is the root cause that maintains the out-of-balance condition. The core issue for the Altai Fellowship pilgrimage is essentially the same both internally (personally and as a group) and externally. It is the process of awakening that all of humanity is now undergoing.

The core issue is that the construct and language—the thinking system—of every political governing and religious organization throughout history are designed to oppress and enslave people through hierarchy and patriarchy using powerover. They control the world’s resources by manipulating thinking. This destructive intention, which uses technology and information with brute force, has been destroying the four sacred elements on the planet: earth—physical, water—emotive, fire—mental, and air—spiritual well being.

Thus, the four “corn-pollen footsteps”7 that represent the reverent revolution in Dineh tradition (child, youth, adult, elder) are distorted and delayed. Delay of human service to creator, to self, and to what is good, beautiful, and true for women, children, and elders—causes suffering. The masculine gender’s life task as protector-provider is corrupted to perpetrator and sexual predator in the home, the community, and in the government. Even people of good will get stuck in this system, because it is a closed system and they are born into it.

II. Emptying the obstacles that maintain the root cause
The Eurocentric dualistic thinking system utilizes the concept of consciousness, which results in seeing reality as relative to a person’s perception. Thus, each person perceives his or her own perception as right, and fights for his or her rights and religion from that perception. People polarize into adversity, conflict, and war. Curing, as a thought reversal, is reframing from consciousness and perception to conscienceness, in which Indigenous wisdom and knowledge are exact in the natural order. Then there are peacemaking and co-creative solutions.

All Indigenous prophecies—known for centuries—predict that the time of silence and persecution of Indigenous people (who have the wisdom and knowledge of healing ceremonies that lead to curing, not coping) has ended. This is a time of awakening to conscienceness and for breaking silence about exploitation and victimization, which are immoral suppression of a person’s soul purpose and life mission.

The divine plan for remembering our sacred place in the universe and reawakening to being humane is to restore the knowledge of cooperation and collaboration between spiritual beings and Earth’s humane beings. People who heal suffering are humane. This cooperation will reframe destructive and death-producing choices.

All healing occurs when decisions are made to correct thinking from destructive and death-producing choices to constructive and life-affirming choices. This is holy thinking, and it is the only appropriate function of thinking. Thinking that is not for a holy intention is a misuse of thinking. Conscience in this context means the use of thinking for what its proper purpose. Conscience manifests wisdom and knowledge within the natural order (and not consciousness and perception).

The “new group of world servers” (a metaphysical concept from the writings of Alice Bailey), of which the Altai Fellowship is part, is called to change the vibration on the Earth plane to love and peace by learning and teaching how to heal through win/win constructive and life-affirming choices. An awakened person is one who has liberated him- or herself from a deficient self-image. This person knows that spiritual awakening does not require a remediation process toward some distant end state of enlightenment as taught in an inverse thinking system. Every person is already equally “fore-given” a true spiritual self-identity as a precious child of creator.

III. Re-framing into the natural order
The “new group of world servers” that is now meeting and organizing to restore planetary balance and harmony is fulfilling its members’ soul purpose by grounding and anchoring spiritual energies. This is what the members of the Altai Fellowship will be doing.

The divine guides of the human race inspire us toward a collective remembering and reawakening of our true spiritual self-identity as precious children of creator in order to fulfill the divine plan on Earth. When we reclaim our inherent divinity and know our sacred place in the universe, we can manifest wisdom and knowledge in the natural order. We then understand the unifying principles that operate to eliminate the need for powerover, not only in political empires, but in our own lives.

VI. Manifesting co-creative solutions
A liberated person can access accurate spiritual information by revelation from his or her own soul and from telepathy with divine beings. Thus, the Altai Fellowship is guided in their activities. A liberated person knows that the interconnectedness of the etheric network is designed to redeem the energies that are held in human destructive intentions. The redeemed energies are released to be used for healing.
When we operate in the affirmative thinking system, we are operating in conscienceness. Indigenous knowledge and wisdom lead to experiencing reality as exact, because the context of spiritual living is in the natural order, undistorted by individual or group perceptions. Instead of conflict, there is group consensus and spiritual morality in win/win decision-making for collective survival and abundance. The trust that is exists as natural order enhances the strength both of group members and the group as a whole.
V. Life application of win/win decision-making for universal practical application of co-creative solutions
We are inspired and guided to restore trust and serve creator, self, and others with powerwithin, to have powerwith the divine in the universe. The way to have powerwithin, and thus have powerwith others for congruent win/win decision-making, is to intend, visualize, affirm, and manifest win/win constructive and life-affirming choices with our sacred self-identity as precious children of creator.
