I cannot count the number of emotional healings that I’ve witnessed and I still hear today about the many physical healings Cheyenne was involved in. We would give people some of Cheyenne’s fur for them to carry with them or to place somewhere on an alter or a place of special meaning to the person. We have sent her fur all over the world to people who request it, the last of it recently to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are out of her fur but do have some of her ashes that we now send out. People have come from all over the world to see and meet with Cheyenne; recently the longest distance traveled has been from Denmark, Iraq and Germany. Many of Cheyenne’s visitors had no idea that they had a problem. If Cheyenne removed some clothing from a person’s body and would lick, lightly nibble, hit with her nose or paw on a certain part of their body, I then knew there was something wrong in that area. Some people already knew, others did not, and some did not want to know. Cheyenne was right each time. She detected cancer in about 25 people including my late wife and I can’t tell you how many other physical problems she detected.
Who can practice the medicine of the Eagle?
Anyone who can be open-minded. Mostly it is about having an open heart. In order to be able to receive the medicine, it is about simply showing up, free from judgment and criticism, just allowing your soul to resonate with what is being taught. Eagle Medicine is a very powerful Shaman medicine to carry. All nationalities, all indigenous traditions recognize that if you carry Eagle medicine, it is of the highest order.Thus said, the Eagle medicine should be a revered practice and should be respected in high regard. It should not be taken lightly and not be given to somebody that took a weekend course and then calls him- or herself a Shaman or a healer. You really have to go through initiation. And it is just like in our tradition, to become an Eagle medicine woman or man you must go through vigorous training, you must go through cleansing, purification and you must go through initiations.
