|Thanks to the United Nations, today is a day for raising awareness about the world's numerous populations of indigenous people. As Pagans, we draw our inspiration from the indigenous way of life, which may be broadly described as a reverence of nature and a respect for the interconnection between everything in the natural world.
So today, honor the indigenous roots of your spiritual and/or cultural heritage. For example, if you're Irish or have Celtic aspects to your spiritual practice, you might spend some time with an oak today: pour a libation of ale around her roots and remember your ancient connection with this magical being. Or if you're Native American or resonate with Native American spirituality, you might go outside and lovingly offer a pinch of tobacco to the four directions. You'll find that even simple acts like these can realign you with a vast wellspring of wisdom and inspiration.
