Stereotype of the Month Entry

Another Stereotype of the Month entry:

Cherokee Visions Native American Spiritual Guidance and Psychic Readings

My Grandmother a great storyteller was my guide and inspirtation. She once told me that I had magical powers, that she felt I could look into the future, walk without creating footprints and even hold off the dawn to protect my own.

I am not sure that was all true, but I do know that I am able to derive readings from my Native American spiritual practices and unigue insights. Specializing in love and money matters. I can help you in the finding of the lost love, mending the broken heart, new love, Show you the direction to solve problems in your current relationship or marriage.or even guidance in your everyday life. Make the decisions that are needed to take you down the path to better finances. My Spirit guides will help me to guide you in the right direction. They will give me the wisdom to pass on to you to change the direction of the path that you follow. My guardian angel will tell me of your guardian angel and any messages they wish to send to you.

I have been clariovoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient since a child, when my mother taught me to kneel and pray to the creator, for health, wisdom, strength and protection. I have read tarot cards for more than 25 years. I since have added astrology, runes, dream interpretation and past life regressions. My prayer to the creator now is that I may guide you to take the right path.

Rob's comment
First, let's note that Ms. Visions doesn't actually claim to be Cherokee, or even say her grandmother was Cherokee. Also, I don't find a so-called Cherokee using Tarot cards or runes any stranger than a so-called Cherokee practicing Christianity or any other "foreign" religion. But a few things do puzzle me:

1) If Ms. Visions is really clairvoyant and "clairaudient," what does she need the phone or e-mail for? If I simply write or speak my question at home, she should be able to see or hear it. Do you read me, Ms. Visions? Ms. Visions?! Hello?!?

2) If Ms. Visions is using her magical powers to earn money, why not read the memos on Bill Gates's desk and making a killing in the stock market? If the "spirits" want her to use her powers "only for good," she can donate her earnings to charity.

3) Why doesn't Ms. Visions use her clairvoyance to peep into a dictionary and correct the misspellings on her site?

More New Age huckstering
But wait, there's more. An Internet search for "Cherokee visions" and "tarot" turns up many scary New Age sites. For instance:

EtheraCon Class Descriptions '97

Comment:  Lupercus the Wolf God, Cherokee dreams and visions, healing tarot, the heartfire ritual, the ice cream ritual, magical breathing, prophecy of the white deer, sacred drum, Shiva's tears, etc. You see the connection, don't you? Cherokee visions, magical breathing, and don't forget the sacred ice cream ritual. This doesn't trivialize the genuine Cherokee religion too much, does it?

Star Medicine by Wolf Moondance, Seven Star Lodge, Contemporary Shamanic Teachings

Featured Book:

Star Medicine
Native American Path
to Emotional Healing

by Wolf Moondance

Comment:  In the book, Ms. Moondance says she's not claiming to be Native American or using any Native tribe's beliefs. And the book contains only one or two mentions of specific tribes. Yet it's full of Native concepts such as ceremonies, spirit shirts, and medicine wheels. And the subtitle "Native American Path to Emotional Healing" certainly implies the book is teaching genuine Native beliefs. Do buyers who feel deceived by this subtitle get a refund when they get to the disclaimer in the book? Why not call it "Pseudo-Native American Path to Emotional Healing" instead?

The name "Wolf Moondance" is almost comical in its attempt to sound spiritual and mystical. Were the names Raven Stardance, Eagle Sundance, and Coyote Firedance already taken? I suspect people would heal faster if they spent their money on comics instead of on books like this one.
