Homeless to Home

Who We Are Highlighting

For the month of January 2020, we highlight our dear family member who is transitioning from being homeless to having a home in an assisted living facility.

Ron has been in and out of an institution since he was 14 years old. He is now 66 and has been living on the streets of Las Vegas for the past 18 years.  He has just been moved into an assisted living facility as of December 2019.

How We Are Connected

Ron is Amua’s birth father & Ki’s father-in-law. Amua reconnected with him in October 2019 after 42 years.

It was quite the spiritual journey finding him. Perhaps a book will be written about it one day. ( :

 

 

 

For now, Amua and Ron are having a lovely time reconnecting, integrating and getting to know each other.

Amazing Facts about Ron

Ron has been studying physics & time travel for the past 30 years. It’s a great love of his, and he is very intelligent. Ron has an great sense of humor and believes laughter is the best medicine. He loves sitting with his friends and chatting about their life stories. Ron is a master storyteller and could enertain for hours. He is a very kind person who advocates for those who don’t have anyone to advocate for them whenever possible. Ron is a gifted artist who loves to draw and paint. Ron loves to pray and be inspired by God.

What is Unique about Ron’s Situation

It has been an extreme challenge navigating & learning the system to help get Ron into a stable home, as well as an ongoing struggle to get proper medical assistance & attention for the myriad of health issues he has.

We continue to look for natural and alternative ways to assist him, however this is a challenge living far away as well as building a bridge with Ron about the benefits of this type of care.

Ron is very used to the system, knows it’s broken, and has been doing the best he has been able to on his own for many years. He has been in and out of emergency rooms to help address his healthcare for many years now. Often what happens with homeless people when they seek assistance is that they simply fall through the cracks of the system. Without an advocate, this happens more often than not. Ki and Amua are now his advocates.

Ron has quite a bit of trauma from living on the streets and from being in prison. He has significant health challenges such as advanced diabetes, cellulitis, Chronic Obstuctive Pulmonary Disorder (COPD), advanced degenerative arthritis in his spine, and is in a wheelchair; he cannot walk any longer.

What is Currently Needed

Ron currently is in need of several things. It is complicated being homeless. Many people assume that once someone who has been homeless has a bed to sleep in, that this is the most important thing, the safest thing, and that this is enough. However, being homeless has many many levels to it.

Ron doesn’t care so much about a bed, it’s not the first thing on his list. Ron cares about freedom, spaciousness, fresh air, and getting out of pain. He has expressed he does not wish to be homeless any longer, and wants to find a living situation that will work.

Ron is in need of several material items, as well as people that may be willing to assist him in other ways, such as in person or distance energy work, medical assistance, in person or long distance friendship, etc. If you have extra time and wish to serve, contact us. ( :

Material Items:

  • A Dell labtop computer (For him to pursue his interests of physics, science, art & movies. The assisted living home he is in has two computers for more than 120 residents to share)
  • Headphones for his computer
  • Warm Clothing (size 38/32 jeans, size 4XL shirts with pockets, zip up 4XL sweaters/hoodies)
  • Lightweight Wheelchair Transport Chair (so he can go easily to the hospital if needed, as he is in an electric chair that ambulances will not transport people in, also so he can go in cars with people to restaurants or etc.) Here’s an example of the one that could work.
  • Slippers (size 16, with no back on them, his feet are very swollen from the cellulitis)
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Lemonade Koolaid – Sugar Free
  • Colored pencils, Chalk Pastels, Felt Paper (he loves to draw)
  • Tobacco  – Bugle Tobacco in pouches, or Camel Wide Blues

Why Wear a Medicine Pouch?

Our Clan Mother, Hua Anwa, often asks people who are not wearing a Medicine Pouch, “Why are you walking around naked?” She’ll give you the sideways glance and head shaking that she gives people when they need to know something. She isn’t messing around.

What she means by this talking to is that we Westerners have not been educated in the importance of how to protect ourselves from the influences we are exposed to on a daily basis – other people’s energies, viruses, bacteria, thought forms, etc.

By wearing a Medicine Pouch, it can help with, in essence, repeling these types of influences and not be affected by them. They will literally bounce off of you and be reabsorbed into the cosmos.

I used to be a HUGE empath – meaning almost whomever I was around, I would take on their energy. If they were upset, I would start to feel upset, etc. It was extremely challenging. When I started wearing a Medicine Pouch, my life shifted dramatically. I felt like I could stay centered and not be so affected. It was so altering for me that I now will literally turn my car around and go home to retrieve my pouch if I forget to put it on before I leave the house!

So, what’s IN a Medicine Pouch? This is a very personal and intimate question that is also what makes it a beautiful ritual. You get to choose what goes inside your sacred pouch. It could be crystals, herbs, animal hair/skin, bones, affirmations, symbols, feathers, etc. etc. etc.

That being said, there are certain herbs that are recommended that are a good base to have in a pouch that we have experienced being very protective and connective to the Spirit Realms. We are honored to assist in helping you craft your own pouch, or consulting with you to craft a pouch for you. Read more here.

One Cup of Ceremonial Cacao

We’ve been asked so many times after a cacao ceremony – but how do I make this when I get home?? Here’s a super easy & delicious recipe you can make at home for your personal ritual, or scale it and hold your own sacred gathering.

Please note that the amount called for in this recipe is an amount we have tested over the years to be a higher “dose” of cacao, which means that it is meant to induce a slightly altered state. If you are wishing to simply make a cup of cocoa for daily use, we recommend half of the amount below! ( :

Most important (at least in our eyes) set an intention for the spirit of the plant Cacao Theobroma (AKA chocolate) to be with you as you enjoy it. We have found her to be a light-hearted being who is power-full and humble.

INGREDIENTS

Cacao Paste
Raw honey
Organic vanilla
water
himalayan or celtic salt

RECIPE

For one cup of ceremonial cocoa, you will use about 40 g of the paste.  (Note that if you purchase 1 lb of our cacao, you will have enough for 10 cups) For every 40 g of paste  you will add 3/4 a cup of water. Begin melting the paste and water on a stove over low heat. Continue stirring until melted. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla, 1 tablespoon of honey and a pinch of Himalayan salt. Blend this mixture in a vita mix blender or high speed blender for about 30 seconds. Set your intention and enjoy.
