Tsalagi Principles

The core of all the Ywahoo family lineage teachings are the Seven Reminders of the Pale One and the Nine Precepts that maintain right relationship:

Seven Reminders of the Pale One

  1. What walks, swims, flies or creeps is in relationship; the mountains, streams and valleys and all things are related to your thought and action.
  2. What occurs around you and within you reflects of your own mind and shows you the dream you are weaving.
  3. Three principles of awakened mind guide enlightened action: Will to see the Mystery as it is; Intention to manifest one’s purpose for the benefit of all; Courage to do what must be done.
  4. Generosity of heart and action brings peace and abundance for all in the circle.
  5. Respect for elders, clan, land and nation inspires acts in harmony with the sacred law, good caretaking of the gifts received.
  6. Actions to benefit the land and the people unto seven generations shapes the consciousness of the Planetary Caretaker, dreaming those yet unborn, ever mindful of life’s unfolding.
  7. To be in good relation, transforming patterns of separation, pacifying conflicting emotions, is to experience the wisdom within, still lake of Mystery.
