Today is a very special day for me...
It was today in history.. on August 20th 1994..
I walked to my Grandpa's house...
And had the talk with him.. And officially named my religion...
Heinzism ... We talked about it for about 4 months after I heard him say...
We are Heinzists a little bit of everything.. My religion and spiritual path is this way..
Originally it was meant just as a name for my unknown path as I got
tired of when I said I am mixed beliefs.. people responding You are
mixed up .. Confused.. I am not confused about my Walk. I never realized
years later my Heinzism would have grown into what it is now, or that
my mysterious religion would take me through so much mystery including
working with ThunderBeings.. and later on being recognized as a Contrary
Shaman presenting things that existed for thousands of years in a new
format.. However, I was even more surprised when the Prayers and
Heinzist Way formed on their own. I was in full practice of the Heinzist
Way way before I gave it a name. At the time the Heinzist Way was
preached as Laws of Respect under the Peace Keeping Rail Gang.. Which is
not spiritually based but it is culturally inspired from my Native
Heritage and other things... I later was honored with a Cherokee name..
Hawk Warrior/Spirit Keeper of the Tracks.. and over time also call the
Heinzist Way itself.. The Rail ... It is also a very sad time for me..
As My family turned Grandpa's old house into another foster home. So now
although it is my address.. All my belongings are locked up in the
basement.. and I am rarely allowed to return there.. to my home.. So I
feel like I am a homeless.. I also feel like I am losing the birthplace
A Major part of Shamanizing IS dreaming.. The Art of dreaming and
manifesting the dream into our world around us. I been trying to
manifest the dream of having enough money to meet my housing, and health
needs.. as well as dreaming of helping my 30 some other family
members.. and friends too .. I been dreaming of ideas I throw out there
from time to time.. Some I saw actually manifest like Norfolk Southerns
locomotive that charges itself on its own brakes.. You will not see my
name listed behind it as I did not care for the credit all I cared about
it that someone who had the resources was able to make it happen.. I do
not expect ever a mass conversion to Heinzism in fact Heinzism is meant
to be a link or offer simple ceremonies where multifaiths can join
together in prayer and worship..Or for most it is a temporary path until
they are guided to their true religion.. Very few people that walk this
earth could walk the Heinzist path. I as a Heinzist struggle with it
constantly... It is not meant to be a global world wide religion, and
It is now considered part of my Heinzist Tribe even if the tribe remains
only me.. My Best friend and family of cats and kittens.. I set it up
this way.. as I refuse to allow anyone abuse this path. Unlike many
paths the Spirits involved in Heinzism are strong, and the path is both
Dark and light. They will punish by other means other than just
karma.... So this is not a path to dabble in unless you are really
serious. If you are serious and have an open heart and open mind..
Whether you choose to become a Heinzist or just honor Heinzism along by
participating in the ceremonies, rituals or prayers.. You will find
things you did not notice in your life will open up to you. When it
reopened for me I was in such shock I begged a professional therapist to
lock me up stating I was crazy! .. They said I was perfectly fine.. and
not crazy at all.. Just a little depression, post traumatic stress, and
some dissociative identity disorder symptoms.. but I was totally sane..
I remind people not to damage my ego as I take pride in being crazy :)
.. That is one major difference too from Heinzism from other spiritual
paths.. We do not see ego as bad, as long as it is kept in proper
balance.. I love my path I may feel constantly lonely... as I accept all
religions as my spiritual brothers and sisters.. But, many times feel
rejected by them... I understand there was times in my life I would have
rejected a Heinzist too. I am just glad I am accepting of it.
