A Lesson About Unity and Wholeness Achieved
In the Navajo and Hopi traditions the Swirling or Whirling Rainbow Woman brings the rains that nurture the Three Sisters (Corn, Squash, and Beans). The Whirling Rainbow Woman comes from all Four Directions and curves around making a cup to hold the rain. Without the rain the Three Sisters would die and the People can not be fed.
The Whirling Rainbow is a promise of peace among all Nations and all peoples. The Rainbow Race opposes the idea of a superior race that would control and conquer. It instead stresses equality. Peace comes from the understanding that all races are one. The Whirling Rainbow embodies the idea that the unity of all colors, all creeds can work together for the good of the whole. When we reach a time that all pathways to wholeness are respected and practiced by all cultures the prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow will be complete.
Jamie Sams speaks of the Prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow that she learned as a child. The prophecy was quite specific. “When the Time of the White Buffalo approaches, the third generation of the White Eyes’ children will grow their hair and speak of love as the healer of the Children of Earth. These children will seek new ways of understanding themselves and others. They will wear feathers and beads and paint their faces. They will seek the Elders of the Red Race and drink of their wisdom. These white-eyed children will be a sign that the Ancestors are returning in white bodies, but they are Red on the inside. They will learn to walk the Earth Mother in balance again and reform the ideas of the white chiefs. ”
I was blown away when I read this prophecy! For those readers of mine who are old enough you will know of which children this prophecy describes. The Flower Children and hippies of the 1960s are who are described and even though many fell away for a while, many of us are returning to this knowledge.
Once the Buffalo returned the generation following the Flower Children would witness the dawning of the Fifth World of Peace. During this dawning of the Fifth World there will be changes to Mother Earth that will create fear in her children but that fear will lead to an understanding and unity of One Planet and One People. Are we in this dawning? I think we are.
The Whirling Rainbow of Peace destroys the lies that have made the Children of earth be distrustful of each other. It will replace the illusion that we must be separate and shows us the truth in unity.
This is a time to look at the lessons being given to you and to toss away any type of discord from your life. It is a time for you to grow. It is a time to create new beauty and abundance in your life. Starve the negativity in your life by not giving it power over you. Do not step in the quicksand of petty tyrants.
Maybe some will now understand why I sign my posts with the Lakota Prayer…
