There Were Prophecies. And Now We Are Here.

The Rainbow Prophecy, as it has come
to be known,
 refers to the keepers of the legends, rituals, and other myths that
will be needed when the time comes
to restore the health on Earth.

It is believed that these Warriors of the Rainbow, will return on a day of
awakening, when all people
will unite
 and create a new world
of justice, peace and freedom –
of unity, harmony, and love.

Although this prophecy was given by a woman of the Cree Indian nation over a century ago, there are similar prophecies and stories from the Hopi, the Zuni and the Cherokee peoples related to the rainbow warriors. This is from the Navajo-Hopi prophecy.

There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds
will put aside their differences. They will come together in love,
joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children.
They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow,
bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go.
We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner.
Men and women will be equals the way Creator intended them
to be. All children will be safe. Elders will be respected and valued
for their contributions to life. The whole human race
will be called The People and there will be
no more war, sickness, or hunger forever.

Throughout cultures around the world there are ancient stories of great cycles of life on Earth. This is from the Prophecy of the Seven Fires from the Anishnabe people.

In the time of the Seventh Fire, a New People would emerge.
They would retrace their steps to find the wisdom
that was left by the side of the trail long ago. Their steps
would take them to the elders, who they would ask
to guide them on their journey. If the New People remain strong
in their quest, the sacred drum will again sound its voice.
There will be an awakening of the people, and the sacred fire
will again be lit. At this time, the light-skinned race will be given
a choice between two roads. One road is the road of
greed and technology 
without wisdom or respect for life.
The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes
respect for all living things. If we choose the spiritual path,
we can light yet another fire, an Eighth Fire, and begin
an extended period of peace and healthy growth.

And so we stand at this threshold of great change and possibility and hope. This is a mythic time that calls us to be mythic. Yet we are not alone. As Auntie Mulara, an Australian aboriginal elder speaking for the Grandmothers, shares in this inspiring and uplifting video, the Ancestors and Grandmothers and indeed the Earth herself are with us. They are holding us. Here is the link to that video: Grandmother Lore Aboriginal Prophecy

There were prophecies. And now we are here. What will we choose?
