Guiding Lights. ...

A Native Alaskan feels like the northern lights are guiding her in life.

Whenever I see the aurora borealis (the northern lights), I feel as if they are watching out over me.  While I don't believe in God the way you may do, I still believe in something.  To me, the lights are my guardian angels; I see them and I feel at peace.

I have always believed in spirits ever since I was a young child.  I am now in my twenties and am passing the legends of my ancestors to my own two children, who are four and two.  While they may have questions, I still try to answer them as best as I can and I let them know that it is okay to believe the way we do. 

The spirits help guide us through life's processes: making decisions, watching out over us, protecting us from harm, and so much more.  There are good spirits as well as bad: they are found everywhere. 

I believe that the lights are the spirits of the ancestors who have passed on.  They watch out over us and we know their moods.  If they are cool, calm, or happy, then they turn blue, green, aqua, pink, or purple.  If they are angry or unhappy, then they turn orange, yellow, even a bright vivid red.  If they turn brilliant red, then they are very displeased with us and it is also their way of warning us that something bad is about to happen.

Like the time when September 11, 2001, happened.  For several days beforehand, the auroras were a deep crimson red.  They reminded me and my family of spilled blood.  What made it awful was that the auroras stayed red throughout the time they were in the skies and they seemed agitated.  Very much so.  Then the next day the twin towers in New York City, New York, and the Pentagon in Washington, DC were attacked and that plane went down in that Pennsyvlanic field.  Nearly 3,000 people (men, women, even chidlren) perished in the attacks.  It was a very sad day and life as we knew it then changed forever.

Ever since then, I don't like it whenever I see red auroras. 

The auroras also turned red when that massive earthquake/tsunami hit northern Japan.  There was no let up in the brillancy of the color.  The auroras remained a deep, blood-red color the entire time.

So far the auroras have remained friendly: colors of green,  purple, pink, white, aqua.  I pray that continues.  With the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001, coming up, I pray the auroras don't get angry or agitated.  I pray they remain calm and I pray that the spirits protect us from harm.  Once again we are under threat for another attack.  I pray for the spirits to protect us from harm and to keep from another September 11, 2001, from happening, for the next time it may very well be worse.  A lot worse.

The weather is calling for more auroral displays this coming weekend.  They may be bright.  I just hope that a.) they don't get angry or b.) turn red.  I have had more than enough of red auroras for the rest of my days!  Just say some prayers that the auroras stay calm and that we don't get attacked again.  I have been praying hard to the spirits and so far they have listened to my prayers.  I would greatly appreciate it!

While I'd love to see the Aurora Borealis, I don't want to see them turn red, either ... well done, Karen.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
