My Spirit is
The elders began coming together as a group in 1999 in response to the global crises of environment and culture. Their traditional teachings have long warned that such crises would arise.
The elders say according to traditions, part of their original instructions as human beings was to serve as Keepers of the Earth. They were also told that one day they would have to step forward in a time of extreme crisis to lead.
for the survival of life on earthwould depend upon them remembering and acting in a sacred manner.
Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Lakota 19th generation of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe tells us the Native People have the answer to our world crisis. He tells us it is in the understanding of Sacred Sites(vortex energy).
"It's time to do something important, to reconnect the energy. So many sacred sites are not kept, not tended. But this is what is needed, for things are out of balance, out of harmony.
It's extreme now, and it’s time to come together around this, the old ways and the new ways.
Every human being has a stake in this, no matter their color or their spiritual tradition" says Blue Thunder.
Hopi Grandfather Martinez spoke of the Medicine Wheel ceremony as a universal wake up call. "The mountain ranges have sovereignty over lines of energy (magnetic ley lines) that radiate around the entire earth. Thus, he said, the ceremonies we do encircling the Rocky Mountains will radiate out to other points."
Grandfather noted that many people and groups do things individually, their rituals or ceremonies. "That's okay," he said, "but right
now Mother Earth and all the living things upon her have need of something more --
something where all the people are together and of one heart, one mind."
