After my post Saturday about White Buffalo Calf Woman, I had the joy of working at Dark Star Philosophia in Rockport ( Cape Ann) , MA. I was busy getting ready for a day of Readings, followed by my Shamanic Dream class, when I heard my name yelled and told to go outside.
There, in the sky was a rainbow encircling the sun!! I was over whelmed. Though there was so many pedestrians on the street, a car could not pass through, only 4 of us had our heads tilted back in awe as we saw this spectacular sight.
This went on for close to 10 minutes. I was in tears. As this miracle took place above our heads, almost no one noticed. This is a profound statement regarding our focus as a society.
I did some quick research on this phenomenon. It does happen from time to time, according to wikipedia. I also saw that this is called a Sun Dog.
Read what Jamie Samms (excerpt from Sacred Path Cards) has to say:
To the Navajo and the Hopi, the Swirling or Whirling Rainbow Woman is the bringer of friendly rains that nurture the Three Sisters — Corn, Squash and Beans — during the summer so that people will be fed. Many times an image of the Whirling Rainbow is created in Sand Painting, an ancient Sacred Healing Art performed by the Medicine Clans of those Nations.
The Whirling Rainbow Woman comes from all Four Directions and curves like a swastika covering all directions. The outside of the Sacred Circle is protected by another Whirling Rainbow Woman bending her body in the space below creating a cup-shape to catch the rain and protect the circle. Without the Rain, the Three Sisters will die and the People will not be fed.
The Whirling Rainbow is the promise of peace among all Nations and all people. The Rainbow Race stresses equality and opposes the idea of a superior race that would control or conquer other races. The Rainbow Race brings peace through the understanding that all races are one. The unity of all colors, all creeds working together for the good of the whole, is the idea that is embodied in the Whirling Rainbow. When all pathways to wholeness are respected by all cultures, the prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow will be completed.
When I lived in Mexico and worked with the Grandmothers, the Dreamtime Buffalo Society, or Sisterhood, had many prophecies derived from Seers and Dreamers that had come down through the ages. The prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow was very 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 the 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 idea of the white chiefs. These children will be tested as they were when they were Red ancestors by unnatural substances like firewater to see if they can remain on the Sacred Path.
All this, after a man in my Dream Circle on Thursday brings a dream about Sky Woman. This is part of the Iroqoius Creation Story, unbeknownst to him. Part of this amazing creation story is how Sky Woman had 2 grandsons: The Straight One and the Twisty One. They are always to be allowed to exist.
Yesterday, I drummed on all this to gather a deeper understanding. I met with the Spirit of White Buffalo Woman. She told me that the Straight Brother and the Twisted Brother must come together. We cannot eliminate one! She showed me 4 instances where this is happening. One was between Israel and Palestine, another between Russia and the Ukraine. There were 2 others as well that I am not discussing. We Cannot let one brother destroy the other. Period. Her solution? To isolate the oppressor until they are not inclined to oppress any more.
I offered a prayer of gratitude to her. When I came home, I heard one of the 4 examples of oppression had been healed!
I dont normally share this much on fb, or anywhere else. But~ the time has come that maybe I should now.
