Energy For Energy

April 19, 2010

The year was 2003 and I was listening one night to coast-to-coast with Art Bell in the wee hours of Monday morning. I heard the guest Red Elk answering questions. I decided I had to meet this Medicine Man. Much to my surprise he was giving a lecture right down the street from where I was working later that day so I prepared to attend.

When one wants to speak to a Medicine Man, it is not appropriate to approach empty handed. You must exchange Energy for Energy.

When writing a Medicine Man: send a self addressed stamped envelope with your offering of tobacco.

When meeting in person always bring tobacco (at least!)

When e-mailing (yes – e mailing) do not ask for knowledge without being sure to reciprocate in equal ways.

Many people do not realize this. Red Elk answers 80 e mails a day – how many are returning the energy that he has spent on his efforts to work on behalf of the creator?

Anytime I arrive to see Red Elk, I have at least a couple pack of smokes if not a carton of Pal Malls (it happens to be his favorite – original – soft pack – no filters), food and money.

Even as I work on editing his book – he spends equal time with me in “teachings”. As Red Elk would say “Aho!?” (meaning – do you understand!?)

Red Elk is now 68 years old – and has dedicated his life to his spiritual work. When we receive services rendered by doctors and teachers …. do we not expect to pay for those services? Never take advantage of a person who works on behalf of the greater good – who would not cease to teach just because the approach was disrespectful. Contemplate this: how does a Medicine Man collect retirement anyway? I think his time has come to have all that work he put out into the world assist him in sustaining his family (which includes all of us when you think of the prayers, teachings, tellings and support he has provided).

As promised – I would show you the latest developments of his Gnome Home/Hobbit Hut. Enjoy…..and if you wish to reach Red Elk and stay …. feel free to contact me and I will see what I can do. My e mail address for all Red Elk matters is:

      The “Gnome Home” is the most amazing accommodations I have ever stayed in. Anyone who knows my lifestyle knows that I have stayed at some pretty fancy hotels…. but NOTHING was as cool as this experience. I also got to see firsthand everything Red Elk was writing to us about as he built it … and even the pictures do NOT DO IT JUSTICE! I jumped up and down when I entered the “Hobbit Hut”…. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Just absolutely AMAZING…. and a true testament to Red Elk’s creativity and understanding of how to not only survive on so little in the world around us with plenty from the creator, but how easy it truly is to “get out of the box!”

    THANK YOU FOR POSTING THESE PICTURES! Red Elk has done a beautiful job on this expressing a way that anyone can have a “home” no matter what their age, their limitations or money. The Hobbit Hut is really a house of HOPE to all. Working with Earth Mother instead of against her is the wave of the future. GREAT JOB, WELL DONE Red Elk. We’re all proud of you and your accomplishments!! T and M

    Red Elk, I noticed that Aaron would have left a comment. Maybe something like, “Aha! My next abode!”

    He has been helping us up here on this mountain, things are getting done.

    God Bless!
