 My Relatives,     

Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.  

We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.  

The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.  

I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.  I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc’I Maka).    

We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.

As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.    So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our children’s future and well-being, and the generations to come.  

Onipikte (that we shall live),

  1. ‘Humans’ are not responsible for the horiffic pollution that is taking place all around the world. In fact the vast majority of ‘humans’ are the victims.

    A relatively small group of satanists (gangster bankster elitists) have profitted from planetary destruction for a very long time. Many do not believe them to be ‘human’ due to their malevolent, psychotic, inhuman, and uncompassionate behavior.

    The war profiteers responsbile for depleted uranium, the oil profiteers responsbile for the Gulf disaster, the diamond consortium, et al are the ones guilty of crimes against the earth. Most of us ‘humans’ are struggling to survive and to decipher the truth in the ocean of lies we have been told for many many years.

    Read Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars . . . then decide who you believe to be the victims and the perpetrators.


  2. I share with you a message that was received thru the spirit of the bright light…It is intended to those responsable….

    The earth, it’s cleaning itself up because you people made a mess of my Univers. By the time she is finished cleaning herself up, a lot of you humans will pay with your lives.

    You have contaminated my rivers, my lakes, you humans have contaminated even the forest. But one day you will find out that the very things that you have contaminated will come right back to your front door.

    Now hear this, in your disaster as I look down. You humans have succeeded in contaminating my ocean. You are now poisoning the very food that comes to your table.

    You have also come up into my domaine. You have left debris around on the planets that you have discovered. You contaminate everything that you put your hands on for the sake of money. Soon your money will be of no use to you.

    You humans have lost the real meaning of sharing, forgiving and of most of all LOVE for one another. You have become greedy and ignorant in your daily lives. For those of you who use my Univers to invent things and then turn around and use it; for even your life will not be easy as you think.

    So for the moment enjoy it while you can. You people know who you are. I will wait in the dead of night, while you are asleep. So beware of my warnings. « The time draw nigh» such has been written in the ancient Bible.

  3. sadly the only animal corporations are intersted in the powerful money animal. all others can be sacrificed , in order to obtain this one. after all, money can buy something else, that is pretty to look at, rather than looking at birds. turtle, that are natural in their beauty, or even fish who are amazing to look at as well as provide food to us. born and raised on the gulf, this is at a end.
