Great Spirit Prayer
Oh, Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life to all the world.
Hear me! I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes
ever hold the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made
and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
Help me remain calm and strong in the
face of all that comes towards me.
Help me find compassion without
empathy overwhelming me.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy: myself.
Make me always ready to come to you
with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame.
– Translated by Lakota Sioux Chief Yellow Lark in 1887
Paul, you saw exactly what was happening in our office situation. It was amazing to me how you were able to not only see all the personalities but also help us unwind a difficult situation. Such an excellent experience working with you. Thank you!
WOW! Such a great experience working with you. Your sessions made me feel so much better. I’m at a loss of words right now. Suffice to say that you helped me regain my confidence and let go of some serious garbage. I was carrying so many unnecessary pieces of guilt and self-hatred. You helped me release these things. Truly a wonderful experience.
I love our sessions so far. After a month, I’m noticing just how clear I really can be. I tend to overcomplicate things and get lost in the details. I also forgot how to be a positive person. Working with the rituals and living more in gratitude has been immensely rewarding and eye-opening!
Thank you for being such a light and inspiring person in my life, Paul. I was worried about hiring someone to help me because it all felt so unmanageable. You were so sweet with me, holding my hand during a very painful time. Each session helped me break out of my darkness. The difference between today and 3 months ago is almost unbelievable. Thanks for seeing my potential and walking me into it!
Working with you has been amazing. I love how you can see the challenges that my wife and I are having - and you don’t blame either of us. You also saw that I have a bit of work to do, which I needed to hear. Now that I’m completely over myself (haha), she and I are able to have very productive conversations. Sometimes it feels like we’re just getting to know each other. We appreciate you, Paul - thanks!
Thank you so much for hearing me so deeply. You are so kind and generous to me, helping me get past the death of my child and loss of my marriage. The guilt was killing me, but I’m seeing the light again, feeling more loving. Thank you for working through everything with me. I know I’m a challenge. I’ve listened to the recordings several times. Each time, I am reawakened into how empowering you are for me. How kind and present. Thank you so much. I am SO GLAD I TRUSTED YOU AS MY COACH!
