EARTH CELEBRATION – INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE SPIRIT WORLD
June 2003 Two American Indian Spirits, a male and a female, came to me in the early morning. Standing on each side of me, our arms locked together, we began traveling at a high rate of speed across the Earth. We flew across every type of terrain, elevation and geographic feature. We merged with and flowed ‘through’ sand, soil, rocks, hills, mountains, canyons, trees and all types of plant life. We swam through the oceans and went across the land. The sun, moon and stars were always present. At one point I could see a river in the distance and I said “we will be going into the river” and we did. When we emerged on the opposite bank of the river I found myself at ground level. I felt like an insect or a small animal. I could smell the soil and see rows of corn, melons and some other plants around me. I looked around and as I began to stand up I could see I was in the middle of a large garden.
At that point I heard someone speaking and I turned my attention to a man standing behind a podium on a stage in the center of the garden. I thought to myself, “I should pay attention to what he is saying.” He spoke about the human spiritual and molecular connection to the elements of nature, that we are one with creation and the significance of protecting the environment for future generations. His terminology about the environment was both scientific as well as spiritual. His primary topic was ‘water.’ He was also a Native American. As he was speaking I noticed that he wasn’t directly speaking to me. He appeared to be giving a speech and looking out beyond the stage. I followed his gaze and at that point I saw people sitting in a stadium listening to his speech. The stage was surrounded by the garden that I was standing in and also there were small trees in containers and artwork. It was a beautiful setting.
At that point one Spirit spoke to me and said, “This needs to happen. It is time.”
Then in an instant, the two Spirits and I were up in space above the region of the U.S. looking down at the land. One of them spoke again and she said, “the gatherings need to happen at four places.” At that time I saw a burning ember started to glow in the southwest region of the U.S.A second one was in the northwest. The third and the fourth ones appeared almost at the same time…one in the central region and one towards the Great Lakes. I began to think about Willie Nelson and Farm Aid and I said to the Spirits, “do you mean like Farm Aid?” They answered, “Yes and he had our help.”
At that time I started to feel quite overwhelmed about the task and said to them, “four?” They answered, “Start with one.” As they gave me further detailed instruction, I began to see the gatherings in progress. The Spirits said that each gathering carried the general theme, but each would be unique and help to provide national direction for years to come. I thought about the Civil Rights March on Washington and they said, “That set in motion some of the changes you have experienced.” They said the speakers should focus on current environmental crises, but at the same time it is to discuss and identify next steps in preserving and protecting our environment and learning to coincide in a more natural state with the Earth.
As I heard these words I saw speakers such as Native American Elders, scientists, writers and storytellers, lawyers, business people and others sharing important information. There were singers, musicians and poets. There was a strong presence of Indigenous people. It was energetic and positive. It was a celebration, but serious issues were being discussed. I saw information booths and smaller rooms where people were having discussions. The spirits made clear to me that the gathering must also appeal to the ‘individual.’ They showed me a ‘housewife’ and she was turning off a lamp because she wanted to do her part to preserve the environment. They said it should also help people that make laws and others that have to carry them out and then to others that directly impact the environment through their business activities.
The Spirits said, “People need to learn what they can do.” I asked, “Who should I speak to? Who will help?” They said, “Begin to talk about it. There will be a group of people that will come together who will help. They are receiving the messages too.” I hesitated about asking about a time frame knowing that this would be on “Creator’s time,” but they said, “Start with the first one.” The Spirits said a final time, “this needs to happen. It is time.”
FOUR ENVIRONMENTAL GATHERINGS CONCEPT
What: Four gatherings to be held to celebrate our relationship to planet Earth designed to create awareness and serve as forums to expand initiatives and achieve consensus on individual, community and national strategies to protect the environment.
Where: Southwest, Northwest, Midwest and Great Lakes Region (U.S.)
When: Put planning in motion to set future dates.
Why: Targeted public events help to focus attention on the status of the environment in order to develop national consensus and cohesive thought to defend and protect our earth, including the wildlife and heritage resources within theUnited States. The four gatherings will provide a forum to jointly develop strategies that can be initiated by individuals and communities in order to set forth national direction to promote stronger environmental policies for future generations.
How: The gatherings will provide opportunities for the voices of concerned individuals to be heard through stories, songs, poetry and other media to educate the public at large. Interaction among the participants and educational dissemination shall be key elements. The events will bring together people from all walks of life, ages and income levels to celebrate the Earth. It will give them an opportunity to discuss needed strategies to conserve energy, clean-up the air and water, safeguard and regenerate wilderness and wildlife, protect cultural resources, conserve open space and develop ideas for the green economy.
Individual, community and national environmental stewardship is the human requirement of existence. In this way the Earth will give back to us all that we need or should desire. Organizational efforts will need to include a willingness to redirect resources to secure a gathering place (stadium or other appropriate setting) for each event and to effectively disseminate information with the aim of long-term commitments that go beyond a one-day event. - Shared with permission from Earthy
There are many visions foretelling of this time in the Native American cultures:
“Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there, I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shape of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy.” — Black Elk
“When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow” – Native American Prophecy
There are also fairly recent stories of visitations from small blue “Holy People”:
After the Hantavirus in 1993 took thousands, three grandmothers were startled and went of their Hogan to see what was happening, and they saw several small blue Holy Dieties which told the grandmothers that the Navajo must return to performing their rituals and ceremonies in order to reestablish their connection with Spirit and Mother Earth. And also that the impact of the virus on the people and the drought they were experiencing were a just a warning of things to come if they did not return to their Sacred Ceremonies.
They also told the 3 Grandmothers that they should not have caged the animals on their land and that they should be released into the wild as Spirit intended. The Grandmothers told their story to the Navajo Elders and to the leaders of the Navajo Nation. The peoples return to their Sacred Ceremonies ritual was intentional and consistent after this message was delivered, and to this day the Navajo people no longer have a zoo with caged animals on their land. This visitation took place in on the sacred land in the 4 Corners area. There are more details to this story which are rarely told.
