Hopi Elder: Dan Evehema talks about the Prophecy

"I am very glad to have this time to send a message to you. We are celebrating a time in our history which is both filled with joy and sadness... The time will come when from the Earth will arise a mystic fog which will dilute the minds and hearts of all people. Their guidelines of wis...dom and knowledge will falter, the Great Laws of our Creator will dissolve in the minds of people. Children will be out of control and will no longer obey the leaders, immorality and the competitive war of greed will flourish."

"When the end is near, we will see a halo of mist around the heavenly bodies. Four times it will appear around the sun as a warning that we must reform, telling us that people of all color must unite and arise for survival, and that we must uncover the causes of our dilemmas. Unless man-made weapons are used to strike first, peace will then come."

"We believe militarism is born out of injustice, poverty and ignorance where absolute governments refuse to hear the grievances of minorities. So the people resort to violence, demonstrations and even terrorism when they see no other way to be heard. What can we do when our world leaders and the people are acting like fools in attempts to solve the problems confronting us? Once again we will quote the prophecy of our Elders. We hope it will interest you so that you will be more aware of it because it has been happening for some time."

"According to prophecy, the day will come when people in high places will be hunted. This will get out of control. The hunting will gather strength and spread. This situation might even erupt on our land. Finally, this will lead us to the Biblical version of Armageddon (the Hopi version is closely related). A final decisive battle between good and evil. This will occur under one God or Chief. The prophets say we will speak one language and that this will happen in Hopiland, in the village of Oraibi , where the new life plan will be drawn, in the pattern and cycle of religion. Here also a final decision will be made for the wicked. They will be beheaded and speak no more. If this does not materialize there will be a total destruction through the acts of man or nature. Then new life will begin from a girl and a boy. This is a frightening prophecy and will not be supported by many. "

"It is in the prophecies of the Hopi that in a case like this the Navajo may help our cause. Also the Bahannas or the Paiute Tribe may help. We doubt that the U.S. Government will easily concede our sovereignty."

"We are much concerned about the climate. No one seems to be able to predict the weather accurately from day to day. However, we know according to our time markers that it is past due for certain seeds to be planted at their proper time. n the regions with different climates, things will happen in different ways. For instance, tropical land could become a land of ice, and the Arctic region could become tropical. This need not happen if we, the people, get our leaders to do something about the harmful things being done to the environment."

"It is said that, if the future generations find out that we did nothing to preserve the good ways, they might throw us from our houses into the streets. This suffering will be of our own making. The lack of peace in our own spiritual being could trigger the revolution."

"Let us take a look into the future through the eyes of our prophets. Hopi were instructed to tell of the Great Purification just ahead of a time when Humankind would once again become highly civilized, tending to become careless and leading us to self-destruction. They said that, along the way, the industrialized world will have certain problems. People will be uncomfortable because of the changing times, and they will have to make adjustments to find new life styles."

"Industrialized nations will become careless in getting more the resources out of the earth. Believing all these things will last forever, soon natural resources will be depleted. Fuel shortages will occur; industrial machinery will come to a standstill. The machinery used for planting, harvesting and transport will become useless. Supermarket shelves will become empty of farm produce. The farmers and those who grow their own food will not sell their produce. Money will become worthless. The white man with all his intelligence and technology will not be able to repair the damage. We will see extraordinary events in Nature and Earth, including humans."

"Modern man looks upon old wisdom and knowledge as dead, useless and no longer respected. Modern man depends on the money system and no longer on Mother Earth for food. According to prophecy when this happens Mother Earth will hide her nourishment because of the view that ancient food is poor man's food. When all food disappears, modern man will try to correct his mistake, the conditions he caused upon the earth through his inventions. He will try to achieve some kind of method to heal the wound, but this will not be possible when we reach the point of no return."

"The Hopi play a key role in the survival of the human race through their vital communion with the unseen forces that hold nature in balance. The pattern is simple: The whole world will shake and turn red and turn against those who are hindering the Hopi."

"It goes on to say that common people will become concerned and frustrated because of their hectic world. They will be particularly against the bloodthirsty policies and the deceitfulness of the world leaders. The common people the world over will band together to fight for world peace. They will realize that their leaders have failed. People in high places will be hunted down like animals, perhaps through terrorism. In turn leaders will retaliate and begin hunting each other. This condition will gather strength and spread far and wide. It will get out of control the world over. Revolution could erupt on our land."

"Eventually a gourd full of ashes would be invented, which, if dropped from the sky, would boil the oceans and burn the land causing nothing to grow for many years. This would be the sign for a certain Hopi to bring out the teachings in order to warn the world that the third and final event would happen soon and could bring an end to all life unless people correct themselves and their leaders in time."

"But the choice is yours; war and natural catastrophe may be involved. The degree of violence will be determined by the degree of inequity caused among the peoples of the world and in the balance of nature. In this crisis rich and poor will be forced to struggle as equals in order to survive."

"The reality that it will be very violent is now almost taken for granted among Traditional Hopi, but man still may lessen the violence by correcting his treatment of nature and fellow man. Ancient, spiritually based communities, such as the Hopi, must especially be preserved and not forced to abandon their wise way of life and the natural resources they have vowed to protect."

"The man-made system now destroying the Hopi is deeply involved in similar violations throughout the world. The devastating reversal predicted in the prophecies is part of the natural order. If those who thrive from that system, its money and its laws, can manage to stop destroying the Hopi then many may be able to survive the Day of Purification and enter a new age of peace. But if no one is left to continue the Hopi way, the hope for such an age is in vain."

"Since mankind has lost peace with one another through conflict due to the new ways, the Great Spirit, the Great Creator, has punished the people in many ways. Through all of this there was always a small group who survived to keep the original ways of life alive. This small group is comprised of those who adhere to the laws of the Creator, who keep the spiritual path open, out from the circle of evil. According to our knowledge we are not quite out of the circle."

"Now we enter the time of testing that only the Great Creator can confirm... When the end is near, we will see a halo of mist around the heavenly bodies. Four times it will appear around the sun as a warning that we MUST reform."

"Ambitious minds will decrease, while the people of good hearts, who live in harmony with the Earth, will increase until the Earth is rid of evil. If the Hopi are right, this will be accomplished and the Earth will bloom again. The spiritual door is open. Why not join the righteous people?"

The Morrigan Speaks

I am She Who controls the tides of space, and I light the smallest atom and the mightiest star. I breathe to you in the breezes of spring, and make you drunk with ecstasy with the heady perfumes of summer. Yet I am She whom you face when the sharp bite of autumn reminds you that you are mortal, for I am the Black Goddess of Death.

None may escape my dark embrace, however manifold are their devices to escape Me. For am I not the Black Hole that irresistibly devours whole stars? If stars may not escape Me, how can you?

But understand My Mysteries. Without death there is no greater life. You can postpone the Great Awakening by hiding in a dream repetition of stories that you call lives. But these are only projections of the soul and become more and more worthless. Inevitably your pleasures pale, your habits stultify, and death comes to you by stealth.

Embrace My Mysteries with courage and you will find greater life in ever increasing spirals of Being. Past, present and future are one. What is the secret of eternal Life? It is simple. Live now. Now is forever.

The Unveiling: Part ONE: The Revealing!

June 1st - New Moon - Solar Eclipse - The Reveal --

Herbs: Dragon's Blood, Bittersweet, Benzoin, Peppermint, Rosemary.

Stones: Snowflake Obsidian, Blue Tiger's Eye, Bloodstone, Lapis Lazuli.

Images: Owl, Skull

Color: Green.

Deities: Athena, Clotho

Time: 10:03 pm GMT (-5 hr. for EST)

I know not everyone will have access to all the herb
s requested but as long as you have ros
emary and snowflake obsidian you'll be good to go. If you don't have any of the tools, remember, the intent is the most important, and don't worry about it. But if you can use the same symbols, it would be most helpful.

You can also easily adjust this ritual to a more hermetic approach, with the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram or GRP. Or you can simply lay back in a quiet place and do the visualization exercise i recommended and ignore ritual all together. anything and everything will help. This ritual is meant to reveal the false veil and barriers to the world and to be performed during the solar eclipse. The solar eclipse will only be visible from more northern parts of the world on June first of 2011, but it will create energy fluctuation all over, and we can take that to good use, I should imagine. The path of the partial solar eclipse begins at sunrise in Siberia and northern China at 19:25:18 Universal Time (UT). The eclipse’s path will travel northeast and end at 23:06:56 UT, just north of Newfoundland in the Atlantic Ocean. I would suggest to do the ritual at this time, though, if it'simpossible, any time as close as you can should help.I do think it would be helpful to invoke the Fate: Clotho for this particular ritual. This first step can correspond with Air, for revealing the truth of a matter. As the second, fire, can be the destructive qualities, with water unraveling the thread and earth to seal it. The spider is used in the second step and the skull and the scarab for the third. for the first step, many symbols can be used, perhaps the triangle with the eye could be appropriate. if you
don't have any figurings or statues with these symbols, you can draw them, or even print them out on a piece of paper. I would suggest to get a knife to use, a dagger or athame of some kind. I usually also incorporate a pentacle, salt, a chalice and incense in every ritual i do, but this all depends on your magical tradition, of course. but remember, tools are not important...in this instance, a couple similar symbols would link us all in our power, but tools are only a focus p
oint...the intent and your mind is the most important. i realize some of you may be inexperienced magical practitioner...just don't let that discourage you...just try your hardest and focus as hard as you can, and something good will come of it. the more doubt, the less you will achieve. believe in yourself and keep focused. Also, when chanting something, it is important to sound sure of yourself. if you are musically inclined, you can sometimes turn it into a sort of song, but what is important, is to say it strongly, and think of what you mean when you say it.

Stand facing in the east, ra
ise your arms in the air and call out

"I consecrate this circle of power to the ancient ones. Here may they manifest and bless thier child
. "

Move to your altar, facing the e
"This is a time that is not a time. In a place that is not a place. On a day that is not a day. I stand between the worlds, before the veil of mysteries. May the ancient ones help and p
rotect me on my magickal journey. "

You can draw the circle in any way you wish. I prefer to mark it out in my mind by circling the circle with the dagger and walk around *CLOCKWISE* and visualize a blue tip of light etching it out, as well as taking holy salt water
and sprinkling it around, also clockwise, and as well with the incense...this not only purifies the area, but molds out the circle. once the circle is made, do not leave it until you open it back up at the end. (there is also the option, where you can consecrate your tools, but i was trying to make this more simple for those who aren't as experienced. instead of a long drawn out process, you may cleanse them with water and ask your deities or the earth to cleanse and bless them.)

~Invocation of the Elements~
(i would also encourage you to use th
e Invocation of the 12 elements, instead if you prefer)

"By Air which fills our lungs
with breath
and lifes the bird in flight
by fire which flames within our soul
and floods our mind with light
by water flowing in our bloodfrom ocean's silver brightby earth of which our flesh is formed
from which we hold the sight

earth; my bodywater; my blood
air; my breath and
fire; my spirit

above, by the heavenly realm
and all the Spirits on high
below- by the Underworld
and all the Sidhe below

As above, so below. let the reflection remain.
As above, so below, let us remain free"

Face the East and rise"This circle is bound with power all around. Between the worlds, I stand with protection at hand. "

"Spirit of the great white light
Burn away our psychic night
let us feel your loving care
give us joy and love to sha
Make us of your willing tool
Let fulfillment be our rule
That our growth may be a light
saving others from the night

I would take a piece of paper or a symbol of an eye inside a triangle, and owl, a skull or even carve it into a candle,
or many candles. Most rituals i prefer to have very little light, to create the aura of mystery. for this, the more
light the better. If you can have this ritual outside and with a bon fire, even better still.

during this time i would take a few momemts to say a prayer or chant to Clotho, and invoke her power.

"Hail the Hun
As you draw your silver bow,
il Artemis and Io,
Oh Horned waxing luminous present glow
Nu and numinous maiden crescent shewn

Hail Clotho,
Spinner of life's threadDrawn forth from Nix Night
Turning Fate's first strands
With nimble hands
Twining twixt the dark and bright"

(Visualize this before or during the chants, whichever is preferable to you. But, remember, the words don't mean anything until you mean them. Try and build up the tension, raising your voice in strength or in notes until it comes crashing at the end.)

Now you can light the incense or herbs you have selected, and maybe hold the snowflake obsidian in hand. Light candles or a fire. Focus for a few moments on the images of the Owl and the Skull.
Now concentrate on the false veil in the sky, you can
stare into the sky or just visualize the barrier, that which is a web over and through the earth, the gray abyss over the sky, or the millions of broken pinwheels spinning back and forth.

Now, let the light in your body grow, glowing in the night, until it becomes a beacon, standing strong and alone. Eventually you can aim it and shine it towards what has been hidden, t
hrough the veil and to the other side. this is most important, to reveal what has been done to the world, to take the Veil off people's eyes and make them aware o
f it...to create a light so people
understand what is happening.
"We are the flow and we are the ebb;
we reveal the weav
ers of the web!
we see the weavers;what become of the web?
where are the spiders who master the thread?
to separate the living and the dead
the truth is the flow and we reveal the ebb

the truth is upon us, hear the call!

what is hidden is revealed to all
tear down the cobwebs
tear down the walls(pause)
Now we are the flow and we are the ebb
we are the weavers of the web
we are the weavers we are the web
we are teh spiders we are teh thread
we are teh chosen back from teh dead
we are teh chosen back from the dead
we are teh flow, and we are teh ebb!

As the serpent swallows the Sun
Truth revealed the hidden undone
A false veil now covers Athena's face
the knowledge of Truth descend on Man's race
Bubo, the message deliver wide
to One and All on earth they reside!"

Now relax and release the energy. If you have lit candles or a bonfire, let it burn out on it's own.

Now, i would not be surprised if something tries to attack us for this. which is why the rest of the ritual i would advise you to sit quietly and concentrate on strengthening your wards and cloaks around you. An additional protection ritual might be necessary, especially, especially if you are newly awakened.

~Dismisal of the Elements~

(put out each candle in turn while saying this)

"Depart oh powers of (earth/air/fire/water),my thanks and blessings. "

Take athame and cut hole in your circle. and then say:

"The circle is open but ever remains a circle. Around and through me always flows it’s magical power.

I give thanks to all the beings of the visible and the invisible that have joined with me/us on this night. By the powers of the ancient Gods, I bind all power within this circle, into this spell. So mote it be"

The Unveiling

For those of you who would like to help with the "Unveiling" ritual, please set aside a time, as close to the solar and lunar eclipses as possible on June 1st, June 15th, and July 1st. The rituals should not take very long, and if you don't have the ritual supplies, no worries...intent is the most important part of magic, not the tools. Fayeshould be putting up what she has worked on as an idea what you can do, any day now. But if she goes into labor early or something, i'll whip something up by the first.

For those of you who don't know, we are not unveiling the natural veil, as that is thinning naturally on it's own. We are talking about the more unnatural veil which has been created by various beings and indivuals..sometimes out of fear, and sometimes out of malice. This creates problems within this world as we have less contact with the spirtual side of life, in all shapes and forms, cutting many us off from the Great Spirit and making it more difficult for people to become more aware. Further more, it causes society in general to become more materialistic, shallow and closeminded, which isn't helping in the evolution of humananity whatsoever. We'd like as many people in as many locations as possible to work on this all across the globe. That limits us, as most of us are in the UK, and North America, but I'm trying to get some others involved as well. If you are able and so inclined, it'd be nice to do a little astral projection to cover some more ground, perhaps.

Faye, Jermiah, and I agreed we visualize the false veil as a great spider web, and there are many others who have come to this conclusion as well. One can spin the web, but we can also take it down.

On June first, during the new moon and Solar Eciplise, we will start with the Reveal. Symbolically, I think of the first Fate, Clotho, the Maiden, who brings the thread out into view and into life, we will make the false veil visible to more people. We may only see clearly once we realize that we are blind.

One June 15th, during the Full moon and Lunar eclipse, we will begin to unravel the thread of the web, just as the Fate, Lachesis, the Mother, spins the thread, we will visualize her unraveling the web. Tearing and ripping down the walls, taking the veil off our eyes.

And on July 1st, during the next new moon and another Solar eciplse, we will take all that power we have gathered over the past month, and cut the thread and bury it, as Atropos, the Fate and Crone, cuts the thread of life, ending it's power over the physical realm.

You can, of course, devise rituals to this, in any form, but this is just an outline for what could be. I will post examples of the rituals that can be performed.
