Evolution of the Elf





I believe all the elves came from a faery race that pre-exists what we know now as elves. Some believe the Silver Elves were the first, some believe the Wood Elves were the first. From my memory of past lives, it seems more likely to me that they evolved from a common ancestor. For your benefit, I will simply just call them Elves. Keep in mind, it is highly probable that some of these 'Elves' still live in alternate dimensions, as the Elf, is clearly one of the more immortal beings I have encountered.

 Further down the line, after an untold amount of evolution and development, there seemed to became Seven base races of Elf. The original ancestor of the elves were more broad than most elves now, and on average around 6 foot to 8 feet tall. They had gray skin, so I think perhaps their direct descendants became known as Gray Elves, though another type may be from what I believe to be interbreeding between two later races of Elf. The original Elf is possible the only true immortal elf, as they do not simply live for thousands of years and grow very slowly. If this is the case, it doesn't appear to be so. It is of course possible that they can die of natural causes, as many have been said to look rather middle aged in the past thousand years. However there are no recordings, that I can find, of one that has ever died from natural causes or sickness. Now, it is believed that this elf had a cousin, and this cousin is what became of Faeries, more probably the Tuatha de Danann, as they are the closest in character and traits than any other faery I have encountered.

These Seven Races are known to some as the The White Elves, The Silver Elves, The Sun Elves, The Earth Elves, The Water Elves, the Moon Elves and the Black Elves. Keep in mind that many of these races that existed then, are very different now, although some claim their names.

From the interbreeding between these groups and between other races, come many more types of elves, most of which still exist today.

I do not have the technical name for each of these races, as most have been translated into English for our understanding. But the meaning of these names are essentially the same. Also, if a name is listed twice, it is because there are two different types wtih the same name, or sometimes it's because they evolved from two different types of elves.

White Elves
are sometimes considered the "Elders" of the races by many people. They are a celestial early elf with white skin, white hair, and pale gray eyes. They are known for their uncanny wisdom. The white elves do not breed anymore and only a few dozen are known to still exist. Height ranges from six to seven feet tall on average.



Silver Elves, in this day and age, are much rarer than once before. They are known for thier metalic and literally silver hair, gray eyes, and their height. The average silver elf is 7 feet tall. These elves are known to be more modern than many other elves, rather than living in tribes or forests, they live in grand villages or cities, in towers, castles, and elaborate stone and wood houses. They are known for their skill in battle, hunting, and use of magic. Many Silver Elves, especially the older races, have been known to be able to shape shift into white and silver wolves, whilst going into battle. Some disagree and say these are hybrids, but we can't be sure yet.


High Elves
are a result of early breeding between Light Elves and Silver Elves. They are known for their nobility, politics and diplomacy. They are usually fair skinned, gray eyes, gray hair, even at a young age. Height ranges depending on the family.

Healing elves
are said to be descendants of the White Elves. They are a very elite society and cast out children without the healing abilities, whom eventually breed with other races. They are as white as the White Elves, but much shorter and with facial and body tattoos, usually symbolizing thier rank in society. They range from under 5 feet tall to 6 feet on average.

Oracle Elves
are very similar to healing elves, only appears to stem from a mix of white elves and possibly moon elves. They have very pale, almost luminescent skin, and appear invisible to those who are not seeking them for questions. They are prophets, and at one time were keepers of the early accesses to the Akashic Records, until most was passed down to faery races. They range from four and a half feet to five and a half feet.

Albino Elves
are a descendant of the White Elf ,but seemingly more primal. They have white skin, white hair, pink eyes and live in places where the sun can not reach them-caves mountains, and many realms where direct sunlight is impossible.

Black Elves
are a celestial early elf which is frequently confused as a drow, however there is no relation except they are the ancestor of some drow. They are darker in nature, however are known as gatekeepers, messengers, and keepers of mystery. They have jet black hair and skin, large black cat eyes and silky black and grey hair. They focus on magic of all kinds, from shape-shifting to necromancy. They range from over 5 feet to 6 and a half feet tall.

Shadow Elves
are possibly a mix between Shadow Creatures and Black Elf. They are shape-shifters and can become unto like a "shadow" at will. They can fade into shadows, or blend into their environment. They have gray to black chalky skin, black eyes, and dark hair. Range from three feet to over five feet tall.

Irkik Elf
These elves have streaks of gray and black in their skin, and have various colors of hair. Some appear to be zebra or tiger patterned. They claim to be descendant of the Black Elf. They are admirable shape-shifters, but can only shift into a form with about the same density.

Raven Elf

are shifter elves known for their scouting and messenger abilities because they appear to be a mixture of an actual raven and a black elf. Their hair is feathered and they have wings, black eyes, and a beak like nose. They range from three feet to over 5 feet tall.

The Demonic Black Elf
could be considered a type of Drow. The most common have black skin, dark eyes, and anywhere between white and black hair, depending on the type of demon the Black Elf had mated with. They are more darker in nature than the Black Elf

Tree Elves
are a mix between Earth Elf and Black Elf. They are very anti social and guardians of very large trees. They are shape-shifters, similar to the "dryad" and can appear as a tree. They range from two to twelve feet in height! They have brown skin and hair that changes with the leaves of the season.

Gray Elf
This is a very large race of elf, a mix between white and black elf possibly, or simply a direct desendant of the original elf. They are naturally guardians of balance and justice in life an in nature, as well as the mysteries and history of exsitance. They range from under 6 feet to 8 feet tall, with gray hair, eyes and skin. From a young age they are initiated into learning the historical records of the elves and other races.



Moon Elf
ranges from four feet to six feet tall and is one of the early celestial elves. They are normally invisible to all but other moon elves, save under the light of the moon. They have illuminescent skin with silver, blond or white looking hair. Most seem to have a bit of a glow to them when visible. They are frequently cloaked or shrouded in public to either be polite or antisocial,(depending on which moon elf you ask). They have shinning eyes, but often look solemn. A rare moon elf will have violet eyes. Their emotions seem to flow with the moon. Changing daily. They have an uncanny control over teh tide as well as a gift for telepathy and empathy.They are said to be created by the Moon Goddess. Many still thrive in existence, and some even spend their time living or associating with other types of moon elf.

The Lunar Drow
is a mixture of demon or drow and the moon elf. They have rather dark skin, and by the moon elves, are considered "the dark side of the moon" and call the females the Crones, not by insult, but by respect. Very little is recorded on their existence, and they are very anti-social.



Water Elf
is considered an early celestial form of elf whom are slightly anti social and more primal in nature than some.They are known for their fighting capabilities as well as thier emotional magical qualities. The water elf is a shape-shifter, but can only transform into a sea serpent or rarely, a dolphin like creature. When transforming into the sea serpent, it is on average 4 feet wide in the middle, sometimes between 15 and 20 feet in length, with the same coloring. Female are typically lighter greenish blue or bluish green with white main/hair, while the males with darker skin/scales with dark blue man/hair. Their wingspan is about 20 to 25 feet, thought not all fly, but glide. They range between under 5 and under 7 feet tall in their elf forms.They have webbed fingers and toes and two sets of gills on their back and thier neck, though I'm not sure why. They have sometimes aqua eyes, other times blue or green. They are semi-aquatic, preferring to live along the coasts or in underwater cities.

Sea Elf
is a descendant of the Water Elf. They evolved into a full aquatic creature. They are even more antisocial in nature, and even more 'primitive' in some elves minds. They are rarely seen on the surface and they have lighter green scales, sometimes pink or white, with a little pigment in the eyes and hair. Little is known about them, though some families and tribes of sea elves live along side the Water Elves during the winter.

Storm Elf
is possibly some kind of descendant to the water elf. The thoeries are very diverse, and all yet to be prooven, though they have bluish to ivory skin with swirling colored eyes that change constantly. Thier hair is like a mane, growing from thier head to lower back. They range from five feet to 6 feet tall. They are nomadic in nature, and drift from realm to realm. They have the power to control the weather and they usually follow the weather.

Ice Elf
is a semi aquatic descendant of water elves and they appear to have icey blue skin, and blue stormy eyes. They prefer colder and Artic regions and live in caves and ice shelters quite similar to igloos. They range between four feet and well over 6 feet tall. They can shift into small serpent like creatures, which remind me a big of seals, but longer than the water elves transformation.

Snow Elf
is a race I know very little about, though they are very similar to Ice Elves



Earth Elf
are an early celestial guardian elf that consentrated on keeping nature. They ranged from 5 to 9 foot tall. They were shapeshifters, changing into animals, trees and rocks. They had brown red, orange, blonde, and even green hair. Their eyes were normally brown, hazel or green. They could speak to the animals and spirits of the trees and the rocks.


Tribal Wood Elf
are earlier wood elves, though they still exist. They are the decendant of the Earth Elf. They are usually under 6 feet to nearly 8 feet tall, with stalkier features compared to a typical slender elf body. They remianed guardians of the woods, however became strong warriors in the tribal wood society. It was nessecary to learn war tactics and fight as a warrior when growing up, or at least until mating age. Now, being a warrior is not as common place for they have become slightly more peaceful and getting back to thier roots. Though I'd wager they return to thier warrior ways now with the war as it is. They have many tattoos signifying rank, thier acomplishments, and thier rites of passage. They are extremely 'tribal',refusing to adapt to civilization and stay with thier birthrite. They use a strange lanugage many can not even begin to copy, with whistles, clicks, and a great deal of body langauge. This is one of the most common types of elves today.

Forest Elf
are desendants of the Earth Elf, but chose another path from wood elves a very long time ago. They range from under 5 feet tall to under 7 feettall. They typically have dark red hair and green eyes. They are extremely antisocial and will usually only speak with close friends and relatives. They live in trees, caves, or simple houses. They are guardians of sacred and normal forests. Most have brownish-red hair and green eyes.


Drow
The Drow is a descendant from early Elves and various Daemons. They are typically with dark skin and dark or light hair, with dark or even violet eyes. They are known to live in the mountains or in caves, but sometimes live in small cities or tribes. It all depends upon the tribe and their ancestry. Many drow are very telepathic, some tribes do not even use their vocal chords except for song and warnings. They are thought to be of a darker nature, due to their daemonic ancestors, though not all drow could be exactly considered such. This classification of elf is very difficult to describe, as ther are hundreds of kinds, and each as different as the next.








Disclaimer: I do not claim to be the ultimate expert on elves. I have lived many lives as an elf, and I have a fairly good memory of at least five lives as an Elf. I will say I know much more about those species, but I have lived amongst others, and read about many others as well. I read a little from Otherkin.net, but I can honestly say I can't really relate completely with their description of elves. Suffice to say, there could be unlimited of dimensions in which Elves have dominated realms, and I know of at least half a dozen which still exist according to my own and other's astral travels. Lucky for me, I have many friends and loved ones who have shared many of the same previous incarnations with me, so I am confident that this is at least, one truth of many. My information comes from several individuals, both in this realm and living outside of it, based on their memories and their studies of the Akashic Records. 


I don't not appreciate the silly attitude that there are only one original type of elf, only one truth, only one person with the ultimate authority on what an Elf is. I have felt the need to edit this file on the Evolution of the Elven Race, due to very rude individuals getting on this blog and claiming I don't know what I am talking about and never bothered to read supposed Elven Lineages from the very beginning, that they were around for the 'beginning' of the elven race, etc and so forth. I am not trying to contradict anyone's memories, nor trying to make them look bad because I express my belief that Silver Elves are not the ancestors of all Elves. So, ending this rant, if you have something to say about the Elves and their arrival in the universe, then I'd suggest you write your own essay on it. :)

Expectations, Preditions & Prophecy

There are so many theories on what is to come! Here are just some of the few more popular ones across the world. Each essay here coincides in some way with some of our members own predictions and prophcies, and they are some of the most beloved. Let's start with one which I was not even aware of until a couple years ago! My notes are in italics!

1. The Last Buddha



It is believed by many Buddhists that there will come a time when men become extremely ignorant and seek material possessions over spiritual wealth. While some will become enlightened while most will follow the tide of ignorance and become stuck in a cycle of reincarnation, doomed to repeat their mistakes over and over again. But it is also said that a final Buddha will come during the worst of times and guide people back to enlightenmly ent. Some Buddhists believe, or hope, that eventually everyone will find enlightenment and there will be no more need for life, for the skandas to reincarnate, and all will ascend into Nirvana, which is considered by some to be "Nothingness or Void" and to others "Everything". Here is a collection of quotes from Buddhist texts, explaining who the last Buddha is, and what he will do.



The Buddha said to Sariputta:-



" Our cycle is a happy one. Three leaders have already lived. Kakusandha, Konogamana And eke the leader Kasapa. The Buddha supreme am I. But after me Metteya comes. While still this happy cycle lasts, Before its tale of years shall lapse This Buddha then Metteya. called Supreme, and of all men the chief"



Ananda "said to the Blessed One.



'Who shall teach us when thou art gone?"'



And the Blessed One replied:-



'I am not the first Buddha who came upon the earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time anothr Buddha will arise in the world, a holy one, a supremely enlightened one, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals. He will reveal to you the same eternal truths which I have taught you. He will preach his religion, glorious in its origin, glorious at the climax, and, glorious at the goal. He will proclaim a religious life, wholly perfect a pure, such as I now proclaim. His disciples will number many thousand, while mine number many hundred.'



Ananda said, 'How shall we know him?'



The Blessed One replied, 'He will be known Maitreya.......................'





The Buddha said:-



"Monks. in the days when men live 80000 years, there will arise in the world a Buddha named Metteyyo (the benevolent one), a holy one (Arahat), a supremely enlightened one, endowed with wisdom in conduct; auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable charioteer of men who are tamed; a master of and mortals; a Blessed Buddha; even as I now have arisen in the world, a Buddha with these same qualities endowed. What he has realised by his own supernal knowledge he will publish to this universe with its angels, its fiends, and its archangels, and to the race of philosophers and brahmins, princes and peoples; even as I now having all this knowledge do publish the same unto the same. He will preach his religion, glorious in its origin, glorious at the climax, glorious at the goal, in the spirit and the letter. He will proclaim a religious life wholly perfect and thoroughly pure, even as I now preach my religion, and a like life do proclaim. He will keep up a society numbering many chousand. even as I now keep up a society of monks numbering many hundred."





"At that period, brethren, there will arise in the world an Exalted One named Metteya, Arahant, fully Awakened, abounding in wisdom and goodness, happy, with knowledge of the worlds, unsurpassed as a guide to mortals willing to be led, a teacher for gods and men, an Exalted One, a Buddha even as I am now. He, by himself, will thoroughly see and know, as it were face to face, this universe, with its world of the spirits, its Brahamas, and its Maras, and its world of recluses and Brahmins, of princes and peoples, even as I now by myself, thoroughly know and see them. The truth (the Norm) lovely in its origin, lovely in its progress, lovely in its consummation, will he proclaim, both in the spirit and in the letter; the higher life will he make known, in all its fulness and all its purity, even as I do now. He will be accompanied by a congregation of some thousands of brethren, even as I am now accompanied by a congregation of some hundreds of brethren."



"It is said up to the time when Phanchhen-rinpochhe (The Great Jewel of Wisdom) condescends to be reborn in the land of the P'helings (Westerners) and appearing as the Spiritual Conqueror (Chom-den-da), destroys the error and ignorance of ages, it will be of little use to try to uproot the misconceptions of P'heling-pa (Europe); her sons will listen to none."

==================================================================



And now, the most ancient of the Mainstream religions, has been tracking the ages for thousands of years! Many of us have been tracking the cycles of Kali-Yuga, and we feel an intimate connection with both Kali-Ma and Siva, being part of what we consider to be the Gray Triad(which I will get to later). Also, Yakshawnah, a powerful antagonist many of us in the Omni, and a counterpar to She-Ma, is believed to be Krishna's own brother in his most recent incarnation. My own beliefs lead me toward the idea that Siva is indeed walking amongst us now in India, and it is only a matter of time before that is revealed to the world.





Vedic/Hindu

In the “Brahma-Vaivarta Purana”, Krishna says that a Golden Age will come in the Kali Yuga, which is one of the four stages of development that the world goes through as part of the cycle of eras. Krishna predicted that this Golden Age will start 5000 years after the beginning of the Kali Yuga, and will last for 10000 years.



It is interesting that this prediction of the emergence of a new world is prophesied to appear about the same time that the Mayans predicted it to come! The Mayan calendar began with the Fifth Great Cycle in 3114 BC and will end on 21 December 2012 AD. The Hindu Kali Yuga calendar began on 18 February 3102 B.C. There is only a difference of 12 years between the Hindu's beginning of the Kali Yuga and the Mayan's beginning of the Fifth Great Cycle.





Hindus also await the arrival of the Kalki-Avatar, as promised by in the scriptures when the Kali-Yuga (age of darkness) ends and the Krita age (age of light) begins. Here is one of the Scriptures that speaks of Kalki’s coming:



“When the practices taught by the Vedas and the institutes of law shall nearly have ceased and the close of the Kali age shall be nigh, a portion of that divine being who exists of his own spiritual nature in the character of Brahma, and who is the beginning and the end, and who comprehends all things, shall descend upon the earth. He will be born as Kalki in the family of an eminent Brahmin of Shambala village, endowed with the eight superhuman faculties. By his irresistible might he will destroy the barbarians and thieves, and all whose minds are devoted to iniquity. He will then re-establish righteousness upon earth; and the minds of those who live at the end of the Kali age shall be awakened, and shall be as pellucid as crystal. The men who are thus changed by virtue of that peculiar time shall be as the seeds of human beings, and shall give birth to a race who shall follow the laws of the Krita age, the Age of Purity” (Vishnu Purana 4:24).



All the scriptures seem to agree that when conditions reach a critical point in human affairs, and humanity is sinking to its lowest depths, then the lord will come again. When he comes, it is said, he will bring a new Golden Age: Kalki Yuga.



“ . . . He will be born as Kalki in the family of an eminent Brahmin of Shambala village, endowed with the eight superhuman faculties.”

and then...



“ . . . He will then re-establish righteousness upon earth; and the minds of those who live at the end of the Kali-Yuga shall be awakened, and shall be as pellucid as crystal. The men who are thus changed by virtue of that peculiar time shall be as the seeds of human beings, and shall give birth to a race who shall follow the laws of the Krita age, the Age of Purity.”

Norse: Ragnarök: The Twilight of the Gods


Photobucket


It is said that there will be three terrible winters of conflict with no summer. During this period the sun will grow dim, evil forces will be released, and wars will rage among humans.



And then he wolves Guilt and Hate catch the sun and the moon and swallow them. The stars disappear and the earth is dissolved in total darkness. Three roosters will crow and Heimdal will blow his horn and bring the Gods to the final battle.



At this point all hell will be let loose and the earth will tremble. Fenrir's bons will be shaken loose and Jormungand will emerge and cause terrible devistation his serpent body. And all beings of every kind will fight in the final slaughter of the Gods, the Giants, the Monsters, and the Dwarves. And the Dead will rise and join with Loki as their commander.



I believe the moral of the story is that no-one will win. The Gods will defeat their enemies, yes, but be defeated themselves and everything shall perish. But it is said that two humans will survive, called Lif and Lifthrasir. They will emerge out of the secret forest of the Yggdrasil and find a new empty world, waiting for them to thrive in.




Now the question is, has this already happened? Some say it has and it was the new dawn of modern man. Others say it is yet to come!

Hopi Blue Star or Blue Kachina Prophecy

Photobucket


An ancient Hopi Indian prophecy states, "When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge". This will be the Day of Purification. The Hopi name for the star Sirius is Blue Star Kachina. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask.

We Are All Related By Dr. Allen Ross

The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a "Kachina" removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children [the general public]. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.

World War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the light (the divine wisdom or intelligence) in the other old countries (India, China, Islamic Nations, Africa.)

The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee. Bomb shelters are a fallacy. "It is only materialistic people who seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil. Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers."

The war will be "a spiritual conflict with material matters. Material matters will be destroyed by spiritual beings who will remain to create one world and one nation under one power, that of the Creator."

That time is not far off. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask. He represents a blue star, far off and yet invisible, which will make its appearance soon. The time is foretold by a song sung during the Wuwuchim ceremony. It was sung in 1914 just before World War I, and again in 1940 before World War II, describing the disunity, corruption, and hatred contaminating Hopi rituals, which were followed by the same evils spreading over the world. This same song was sung in 1961 during the Wuwuchim ceremony.

The Emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made by the humble people of little nations, tribes, and racial minorities. "You can read this in the earth itself. Plant forms from previous worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds [as described in SW-II, Effects and Coming Events # 1]. This could start a new study of botany if people were wise enough to read them. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kinds of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same, depending how you look at them. That is what makes the Emergence to the next, Fifth World.

"These comprise the nine most important prophecies of the Hopis, connected with the creation of the nine worlds: the three previous worlds on which we lived, the present Fourth World, the three future worlds we have yet to experience, and the world of Taiowa, the Creator, and his nephew, Sotuknang."

The Hopi and others who were saved from the Great Flood made a sacred covenant with the Great Spirit never to turn away from him. He made a set of sacred stone tablets, called Tiponi, into which he breathed his teachings, prophecies, and warnings. Before the Great Spirit hid himself again, he placed before the leaders of the four different racial groups four different colors and sizes of corn; each was to choose which would be their food in this world. The Hopi waited until last and picked the smallest ear of corn. At this, the Great Spirit said:

"It is well done. You have obtained the real corn, for all the others are imitations in which are hidden seeds of different plants. You have shown me your intelligence; for this reason I will place in your hands these sacred stone tablets, Tiponi, symbol of power and authority over all land and life to guard, protect, and hold in trust for me until I shall return to you in a later day, for I am the First and I am the Last."

The Great Chieftain of the Bow Clan led the faithful ones to this new land, but he fell into evil ways. His two sons scolded him for his mistake, and after he died they assumed the responsibilities of leadership. Each brother was given a set of Tiponi, and both were instructed to carry them to a place to which the Great Spirit directed them.

The elder brother [of the shining light] was told to go immediately to the east, toward the rising sun, and upon reaching his destination to start back immediately to look for his younger brother, who remained on Turtle Island [the Continental United States of America].

His mission was to help his younger brother to bring about the Purification Day, at which time all evildoers would be punished or destroyed, after which real peace, brotherhood, and everlasting life would be established. The elder brother would restore all land to his younger brother, from whom the Evil one among the white men had taken it. The elder brother [of the shining light] also would come to look for the Tiponi tablets and fulfill the mission given him by the Great Spirit.

The younger brother was instructed to travel throughout the land and mark his footsteps as he went about. Both brothers were told that a great white star would appear in the sky; when that happened, all people would know that the elder brother had reached his destination. Thereupon all people were to settle wherever they happened to be at that time, there to remain until the elder brother returned.

The Hopi settled in the area now known as Four Corners, where the state lines of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet. They lived in humble simplicity and the land produced abundant crops. This area is the "heart" of Turtle Island [the U.S.] and of Mother Earth, and it is the microcosmic image of the macrocosm of the entire planet. Each Hopi clan perpetuates a unique ceremony, and the ceremonies together maintain the balance of natural forces of sunlight, rain and winds, and reaffirm the Hopi respect for all life and trust in the Great Spirit.

The Hopi were told that after a time White Men would come and take their land and try to lead the Hopi into evil ways. But in spite of all the pressures against them, the Hopi were told they must hold to their ancient religion and their land, though always without violence. If they succeeded, they were promised that their people and their land would be a center from which the True Spirit would be reawakened.

It is said that after many years the elder brother might change the color of his skin, but his hair will remain black. He will have the ability to write, and he will be the only person able to read the Tiponi. When he returns to find his younger brother, the Tiponi will be placed side by side to show all the world that they are true brothers. Then great judgment will take place, for the elder will help the younger brother to obtain real justice for all Indian brothers who have been cruelly mistreated by the white man since he came to Turtle Island.

The transformed elder brother, the True White Brother, will wear a red cloak or a red cap, similar to the pattern on the back of a horned toad. He will bring no religion but his own, and will bring with him the Tiponi tablets. He will be all-powerful; none will be able to stand against him. He will come swiftly, and in one day gain control of this entire continent. It is said, "If he comes from the East, the destruction will not be so bad. But if he comes from the West, do not get up on your housetops to see because he will have no mercy."

The True White Brother will bring with him two great, intelligent and powerful helpers, one of whom will have a sign of a swastika (a masculine symbol of purity), and the sign of the sun. The second great helper will have the sign of a celtic cross with red lines (representing female life blood) between the arms of the cross.

When the Great Purification is near, these helpers will shake the earth first for a short time in preparation. After they shake the earth two times more, they will be joined by the True White Brother, who will become one with them and bring the Purification Day to the world. All three will help the "younger brother" (the Hopi and other pure-hearted people) to make a better world. In the prophecies, the two helpers are designated by the Hopi word for "population," as if they were large groups of people.

The Hopi were warned that if these three great beings failed, terrible evil would befall the world and great numbers of people would be killed. However, it was said that they would succeed if enough Hopi remained true to the ancient spirit of their people. The True White Brother and his helpers will show the people of earth a great new life plan that will lead to everlasting life. The earth will become new and beautiful again, with an abundance of life and food. Those who are saved will share everything equally. All races will intermarry and speak one tongue and be a family.

Hopi prophecy states that World War III will be started by the people who first received the Light -- China, Palestine, India and Africa. When the war comes, the United States will be destroyed by "gourds of ashes" which will fall to the ground, boiling the rivers and burning the earth, where no grass will grow for many years, and causing a disease that no medicine can cure. This can only mean nuclear or atomic bombs; no other weapon causes such effects. Bomb shelters will be useless, for "Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the Great Shelter of Life. There is no shelter for evil. When the Saquahuh (blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask, the time of the great trial will be here." The Hopi believe that only they will be saved.

The Hopi also have prophesied that "Turtle Island could turn over two or three times and the oceans could join hands and meet the sky." This seems to be a prophecy of a "pole shift" -- a flipping, of the planet on its axis. The Hopi call this imminent condition -- and that of society today -- "Koyaanisqatsi", which means "world out of balance...a state of life that calls for another way. "

The following extraordinary Hopi prophecy was first published in a mimeographed manuscript that circulated among several Methodist and Presbyterian churches in 1959. Some of the prophecies were published in 1963 by Frank Waters in The Book of the Hopi. The account begins by describing how, while driving along a desert highway one hot day in the summer of 1958, a minister named David Young stopped to offer a ride to an Indian elder, who accepted with a nod. After riding in silence for several minutes, the Indian said:

"I am White Feather, a Hopi of the ancient Bear Clan. In my long life I have traveled through this land, seeking out my brothers, and learning from them many things full of wisdom. I have followed the sacred paths of my people, who inhabit the forests and many lakes in the east, the land of ice and long nights in the north, and the places of holy altars of stone built many years ago by my brothers' fathers in the south. From all these I have heard the stories of the past, and the prophecies of the future. Today, many of the prophecies have turned to stories, and few are left -- the past grows longer, and the future grows shorter.

"And now White Feather is dying. His sons have all joined his ancestors, and soon he too shall be with them. But there is no one left, no one to recite and pass on the ancient wisdom. My people have tired of the old ways -- the great ceremonies that tell of our origins, of our emergence into the Fourth World, are almost all abandoned, forgotten, yet even this has been foretold. The time grows short.

"My people await Pahana, the lost White Brother, [from the stars] as do all our brothers in the land. He will not be like the white men we know now, who are cruel and greedy. we were told of their coming long ago. But still we await Pahana.

"He will bring with him the symbols, and the missing piece of that sacred tablet now kept by the elders, given to him when he left, that shall identify him as our True White Brother.

"The Fourth World shall end soon, and the Fifth World will begin. This the elders everywhere know. The Signs over many years have been fulfilled, and so few are left.

"This is the First Sign: We are told of the coming of the white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana men who took the land that was not theirs. And men who struck their enemies with thunder.

"This is the Second Sign: Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices. In his youth, my father saw this prophecy come true with his eyes -- the white men bringing their families in wagons across the prairies."

"This is the Third Sign: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers. These White Feather saw with his eyes -- the coming of the white men's cattle."

"This is the Fourth Sign: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron."

"This is the Fifth Sign: The land shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider's web."

"This is the Sixth sign: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun."

"This is the Seventh Sign: You will hear of the sea turning black, and many living things dying because of it."

"This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom.

"And this is the Ninth and Last Sign: You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.

"These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands -- with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying.

"Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe. Then there will be much to rebuild. And soon -- very soon afterward -- Pahana will return. He shall bring with him the dawn of the Fifth World. He shall plant the seeds of his wisdom in their hearts. Even now the seeds are being planted. These shall smooth the way to the Emergence into the Fifth World.

"But White Feather shall not see it. I am old and dying. You -- perhaps will see it. In time, in time..."

The old Indian fell silent. They had arrived at his destination, and Reverend David Young stopped to let him out of the car. They never met again. Reverend Young died in 1976, so he did not live to see the further fulfillment of this remarkable prophecy.

The signs are interpreted as follows: The First Sign is of guns. The Second Sign is of the pioneers' covered wagons. The Third Sign is of longhorn cattle. The Fourth Sign describes the railroad tracks. The Fifth Sign is a clear image of our electric power and telephone lines. The Sixth Sign describes concrete highways and their mirage-producing effects. The Seventh Sign foretells of oil spills in the ocean. The Eighth Sign clearly indicates the "Hippy Movement" of the 1960s. The Ninth Sign was the U.S. Space Station Skylab, which fell to Earth in 1979. According to Australian eye-witnesses, it appeared to be burning blue.

Another Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from the Moon -- obviously anticipating the Apollo 11 mission that returned with samples of lunar basalt. It this was done, the Hopi warned, the balance of natural and universal laws and forces would be disturbed, resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in weather patterns, and social unrest. All these things are happening today, though of course not necessarily because of Moon rocks.

The Hopi also predicted that when the "heart" of the Hopi land trust is dug up, great disturbances will develop in the balance of nature, for the Hopi holy land is the microcosmic image of the entire planet; any violations of nature in the Four Corners region will be reflected and amplified all over the Earth.

In 1959, a six-man delegation of traditional Hopi leaders led by the late spiritual leader, Dan Katchongva, traveled to the United Nations Building in New York to fulfill a sacred mission in accordance with ancient Hopi instructions. Because of their prophetic knowledge, the Hopi leaders felt it was time to go east to the edge of their motherland, where "a house of mica" [The United Nations building] would stand at this time, where Great Leaders from many lands would be gathered to help any people who are in trouble."

They were to go when the motherland of the Hopi and other Indian brothers were about to be taken away from them and their way of life was in danger of being completely destroyed by evil ones among the White Men and by some other Indian brothers who were influenced by the White Race. This is a clear and present danger: the betrayal of Indian-U.S.A. treaties, land sales, and coal and uranium mining are destroying the Hopi land and its people -- and all other peoples and lands, in eventual effect...

According to prophecy, at least one, two or three leaders or nations would hear and understand the Hopi warnings, as "It is told that they too should know these ancient instructions". Upon hearing the message of the Hopi, they would act immediately to correct many wrongs being done to the chosen race -- the Red Man who was granted permission to hold in trust all land and life for the Great Spirit. This prophecy would seem to have failed. Hopi prophecy also declares that the doors of the "Glass House" would be closed to them. This was the case at first, though they have delivered their message to the United Nations Assembly since then:

"When the Great Leaders in the Glass House refuse to open the door to you when you stand before it that day, [Repeated, again in 1993] do not be discouraged or turn about on the path you walk, but take courage, determination, and be of great rejoicing in your hearts, for on that day the White Race who are on your land with you have cut themselves from you and thereon lead themselves to the Greatest Punishment at the Day of Purification. Many shall be destroyed for their sins and evil ways. The Great Spirit has decreed it and no one can stop it, change it, or add anything to it. It shall be fulfilled!"

On August 7, 1970, a spectacular UFO sighting was witnessed by dozens of people and photographed by Chuck Roberts of the Prescott (Arizona)"Courier". This sighting occurred after a "UFO calling" by Paul Solem and several Hopi Indians. This sighting was interpreted by some Hopis as being a partial fulfillment of a certain Hopi prophecy given by the Great Spirit Maasau and inscribed on Second Mesa, warning of the coming of Purification Day, when the true Hopi will be flown to other planets in "ships without wings."

Hopi prophecy also tells us that there will be a mass migration of Indians northward from Mexico and Central and South America. The migration will be led by a 130-year old Indian named Etchata Etchana. The movement will come after the huge fire and explosion that will herald the advent of the True White Brother.

According to Hopi belief, the survivors of the Great Deluge thousands of years ago split up into four groups that moved north, south, east and west. Only one group completed their journey -- to the North Pole and back -- under the guidance of a brilliant "star" in which the Great Spirit Maasau traveled. When he landed, he drew a petroglyph on Second Mesa, showing a maiden (with the traditional "butterfly" hair arrangement) riding in a wingless, dome-shaped craft. The petroglyph signified the coming Day of Purification when the true Hopi will fly to other planets in "ships without wings."

The prophecy also warns that there will be three divisions among the Hopi The first division was in 1906 between the Traditionalists and the Modernists. The Traditionalists were forced to leave Oraibi and move to Hotevilla. The second division took place in the wake of the spectacular appearance of UFOs in August, 1970.

Near Oraibi, Arizona, there is a petroglyph known as Prophecy Rock which symbolizes many Hopi prophecies. Its interpretation is:

The large human figure on the left is the Great Spirit. The bow in his left hand represents his instructions to the Hopi to lay down their weapons. The vertical line to the right of the Great Spirit is a time scale in thousands of years. The point at which the great Spirit touches the line is the time of his return.

The "life path" established by the Great Spirit divides into the lower, narrow path of continuous Life in harmony with nature and the wide upper road of white man's scientific achievements. The bar between the paths, above the cross, is the coming of white men; the Cross is that of Christianity. The circle below the cross represents the continuous Path of Life.

The four small human figures on the upper road represent, on one level, the past three worlds and the present; on another level, the figures indicate that some of the Hopi will travel the white man's path, having been seduced by its glamour.

The two circles on the lower Path of Life are the "great shaking of the earth" (World Wars One and Two). The swastika in the sun and the Celtic cross represent the two helpers of Pahana, the True White Brother.

The short line that returns to the straight Path of Life is the last chance for people to turn back to nature before the upper road disintegrates and dissipates. The small circle above the Path of Life, after the last chance, is the Great Purification, after which corn will grow in abundance again when the Great Spirit returns. And the Path of Life continues forever...

The Hopi shield in the lower right corner symbolizes the Earth and the Four-Corners area where the Hopi have been reserved. The arms of the cross also represent the four directions in which they migrated according to the instructions of the Great Spirit.

The dots represent the four colors of Hopi corn, and the four racial colors of humanity.

Hopi prophecy warns that nothing should be brought back from the Moon. If this were done, the Hopi warned, the balance of natural and universal laws and forces would be disturbed, resulting in earthquakes, severe changes in weather patterns, and social unrest. All these things are happening today, though of course not necessarily because of Moon rocks.

On August 7, 1970, a spectacular UFO sighting was witnessed by dozens of people and photographed by Chuck Roberts of the Prescott Courier. This occurred after a "UFO calling" by several Hopi Indians and was interpreted by some Hopis as being a partial fulfillment of a certain inscribed on Second Mesa, warning of the coming of Purification Day, when the true Hopi will be flown to other planets in "ships without wings."

The survivors of the Great Deluge thousands of years ago split up into four groups that moved in all four directions. Only one group completed their journey -- to the North Pole and back -- under the guidance of a brilliant "star" in which the Great Spirit Massau'u traveled. Upon landing, he drew a petroglyph on Second Mesa, showing a maiden riding in a wingless, dome-shaped craft. The petroglyph signified the coming Day of Purification when the true Hopi will fly to other planets in "ships without wings."

The Hopi also predicted that when the heart of the Hopi land trust is dug up, great disturbances will develop in the balance of nature, for the Hopi holy land is the microcosmic image of the entire planet; any violations of nature in the Four Corners region will be reflected and amplified all over the Earth.

Martin Gasheseoma said recently that Hopi "elders told us that when the plants blossom in the middle of winter, we would need to go to Santa Fe to warn everyone of suffering and destruction to come unless they change their ways. Last year, in the middle of winter the plants began to blossom."

How much suffering and destruction will accompany the time of the purification, and what will be its end result? Martin Gasheseoma foretells judgment in front of a big mirror and death to those who are evil and wicked, with only a handful of people surviving in every nation overseas who will then come to this continent, "which we call heaven."

"All the suffering going on in this country with the tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes is carried on the breath of Mother Earth because she is in pain," says Roberta Blackgoat, an elder of the Independent Dineh (Navajo) Nation at Big Mountain. She explains that the Four Corners area is particularly sacred because it literally holds Mother Earth's internal organs -- coal and uranium which the Bureau of Indian Affairs has allowed the Peabody Coal Mine to mine. "They are trying to take her precious guts out for money," says Blackgoat. "My grandfather told me that coal is like the liver, and uranium is both the heart and lungs of Mother Earth." Hopi and Navajo traditionalists are fighting the mining.

These life and death matters will be determined when Pahana returns, and theories abound as to Pahana's identity. Since Pahana has also been called the White Brother, and since he is to return from the east, Hopi of past centuries wondered whether he could have been a Spaniard or an Anglo and devised tests for determining the true Pahana, including knowledge of the greeting of brotherhood, similarities of religious beliefs, and possession of the missing piece of the stone tablet. Many were tested, including Catholics, Baptists, and Mormons, but none passed to the satisfaction of traditional Hopi.

Robert Ghost Wolf has been called a holistic healer, teacher, ceremonial leader, prophet and Shaman. He is an internationally recognized author, speaker and artist. Ghost Wolf is a Metis, part Iroquois and Lakota. He has worked with the Apache, Lakota, Osage, Hopi and Ojibwa elders for many years.

Robert says that ETs are contacting us now. Almost all Native American cultures have ancient prophecies telling of interactions with "Star Brothers" and their coming which they have recorded on petroglyphs.

The Hopi Indians are the Record Keepers of the Native Americans. The Hopis call this the "The Fourth Age of Man". According to them the earth has been wipped clean 3 times already. First by Fire, next by Ice, most recently by the flood... approximately 11,000-12,000 years ago. Some believe that the actual date of the flood occured on June 5, 8498 BC. According to the Hopis we are about to enter "The Fifth Age", which they call "The World of Illumination", which seems to coincide with the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

The Hopis say that there will two more worlds after this. "The Sixth Age" which is "The World of Prophecy and Revelation" and "The Seventh Age" is "The World of Completion".

The Native Americans have been not only the forefathers of we Americans who came to this country a few hundred years ago but they have been the Keepers of the Earth for a long period of time. What they believe is very sacred to us. This knowledge is re-emerging at this time in the Earth's history.

The Hopi believe that they descended from the Pleiades and that even before that they came from Lyra which is the Ring Nebula that the Pleiadians have spoken to Bill Meier about. They call Lyra the "Eye of God".

Robert mentions volcanoes going off in the Pacific Rim. This warms up the water making fish change their migration patterns. For example salmon from Alaska are not as plentiful as before. The El Nino' is also swelling to record proportions. He says this means Hopi legends are being fulfilled and we are at the end of the Dream.

Asked what we can do about this, he said we need to return to the Earth and one way to do that is to restore our bodies to health by eating natural grains such as wheat, rice, millet, and corn. He travels around the world doing the Ghost Dance which is to raise the consciousness of people. He said we have got to stop fighting each other. He said people are not the enemy, the Corporation is the enemy because they are being greedy and taking profits now without regard to the future impact on our environment.

The 3 days of darkness of Hopi Prophecy will be 1998/1999. [This did not occur, but the concept of three days of darkness may yet occur in aother timeline as it appears in other religions.

Phoenix Bird would raise its wings and fly. Fire that burned it was the consumption of human desires. We are still not in balance.

Hopi Clan Rocks were given out to all four races a long time ago.

They are stored by race in the following locations:
White - Switzerland
Black - Kilimajaro Mountains in Africa
Yellow - Tibet
Red - Hopi land

A white man will come and restore the Fire Clay tablet.

The Hopi Rock has a + sign and a - (minus) sign on it with a circle.

They represent positive, negative and neutral forces in a magnetic field.

Where they cross is a vortex into the next dimension.

Greatest thing we have for healing is the human spirit.

We are children of the Sun.

Prophecies which should have happened 10 years ago have been put off.

We have been given a window of opportunity.

Spiritual Love is the answer. True knowledge is beyond words.

Comets are a sign of prophecy.

Hale-Bopp was the twin Kachina, white and blue.

The next one will be red. It is the Purifier. It will stop and observe us.

If we are not purified enough it will finish the job for us.

If there is an Armegeddon it is within each of us.

We have 12 strands of DNA in our blood.

Scientists don't know what they are for since they are not being used.

But we can activate them ourselves.

One way is through drumming and ceremony.

End time should be seen as the Beginning time.

We are creating at this moment what our Tomorrow will be.





These prophecies correspond with so many of our own prophecies it is difficult to know where to begin. It was many years of researching with these own ideas in mind before I even came across them! Every year that passes by, says more and more how correct the Hopi were, and how much work we have ahead of us!



====================================================================
Mayan End Age 12-21-2012

Photobucket


In 1999 and 2000, many of the warriors with whom I worked with, had many visions of four specific years 2000, 2006, 2012, and 2023. 2000 was suppose to be the tipping point, the point of no return and the ending of the first great mass awakenings. 2006 was suppose to be a catalyst for all the chaos that would follow, the return of Yakshawnah, and a mass awakening throughout the world. Between 2006 and 2012, their would be a great 'weeding', where those who have awakened would either evolve, or fall back into sleep and ignorance. So far, this has proven to be quite accurate in our view of the World. In this time, it was also said the Veil would become so thin and instable, there was no telling what would happen, though it was a natural process and predicted thousands of years ago to occur. In 2012, we knew something big was going to happen...something we weren't exactly sure of, but when the doomsdayers flipped out about 2000 and Y2K, we laughed and shook our heads, repeating 2012 is the time! We didn't know why it was, we just did. None of us had that much Internet access at the time, and knew virtually nothing of the Mayans. I suppose I can only speak for myself, but I was insanely surprised to read about the End Date, many years later. Although I have debated whether or not 2012 is a year of destruction or simply of evolution and change, one thing is for sure...things sure have picked up a few notches in the past year! Civil War looms over dozens and dozens of countries, the USA is divided, and involved in even more wars and conflicts, there is global economic crisis, the Cold War has simply transfered from one nuclear arms country to another, there is great civil unrest all over the globe, there are more documented earthquakes, more hurricanes, more tornadoes ,more natural disasters of all kinds, and the world is in danger from oil spills, the gulf coast stream changes, polar shifts, global warming from solar flares, and the beginning of the destruction hundreds of species of pollinators and various other creatures from nicotine-based pesticides, and there is a revolution of truth, freedom and a great fight against dictators and their suppression. If anyone can deny that something isn't happening, they must be hiding under a rock!

How many months are left for Age of Transition to begin!


"The Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear." - Joseph Robert Jochmans



Cusp Of Great Cycle

We are living today in the cusp of the Mayan end times, the end of a galactic day or time period spanning thousands of years. One galactic day of 25,625 years is divided into five cycles of 5,125 years.

The Great Cycle of the Mayan Long Count calendar ends on the winter solstice of 2012 A.D. Following Mayan concepts of cyclic time and World Age transitions, this is as much about beginnings as endings. In fact, it was considered by the ancient Mayans to signify the creation of a new World Age. We are almost at the end of the fifth and final 5,125 year cycle!

Why is everyone talking about the year 2012?

The Solstice on December 21, 2012 ~ precisely at 11:11 AM Universal Time ~ marks the completion of the 5,125 year Great Cycle of the Ancient Maya Long Count Calendar.

Rather than being a linear end-point, this cycle that is closing is naturally followed by the start of a new cycle. What this new cycle has in store for humanity is a mystery that has yet to unfold...

2012 is also considered the completion of the 26,000 year Precession of the Equinoxes cycle, and some say it also signifies the end of a 104,000 year cycle.

The recent "2012" movie serves to alert a targeted 140 million people, in case they too haven't already heard the news. Unfortunately, however, the movie does a dis-service because it distorts the message of this ancient prophecy by associating it with fear and destruction, as depicted by the movie's global disaster scenario, rather than the themes of transformation and renewal the prophecy is actually based in.

The 2012 date indeed marks the completion of this World Age Cycle. Rather than something to fear, we can understand the 2012 prophecy as signaling us that we need to awaken and realize that these times on Earth are auspicious; we are living in land-mark times in the history of our planet. We are collectively in a cross-roads moment that is calling out to us to participate in our fullest capacity. We are each being summoned to bring our inspiration and empowerment to the fore, as we must all take our places in transforming our human culture to be one of Harmony - with ourselves, with each other and with all of Nature.

Together we are in a great initiation process, living in times of unprecedented challenge, transformation and opportunity. This planetary moment has never existed before as it does right now. Our human population is climbing off the charts, accelerating by the day, as is our environmental crises and the vast whole-system struggles of peoples worldwide, both physically and spiritually. The old world mentality, founded in separation, greed, ignorance, and unconscious consumer materialism, has reached dangerous peaks. Simultaneously, there has never been so much possibility at our fingertips as there is right now. A new paradigm is trying to emerge in our world, through our hearts and minds, like a flower trying to grow through the cracks in the cement sidewalk. New comprehensions and new solutions are emerging in our collective journey - from new sciences, to new economic models, new healing modalities, new energy technologies, new educational models, new forms of conflict resolution, etc. These times of crisis are unifying us and catalyzing us to awaken to our personal and collective responsibilities in this one planetary equation.

As we perceive the 2012 completion date as a reminder to us from the Ancients that right here and now we are living in precious times, we can realize how critical it is that we align together in respect for life, becoming more and more conscious of how our intentions and actions affect the Whole. This is an important theme of this prophecy: Becoming Conscious of All that has been Unconscious. It is time to see and know and become aware of how we can participate directly in this great transformation process, inside of ourselves and in our shared world, from the energies we transmit through our feelings and intentions, to the details of our lifestyle choices.

The New Cycle that is to emerge is founded on us awakening to the beauty and responsibility of our interconnectedness. Every one of us has a piece in this cosmic puzzle, and we must help each other find our heart's guidance in these mysterious times. As we recognize we are in a Global Healing Crisis, we can shake off the wounded victim mentality, and arise as Medicine Warriors, here to do the necessary work to help lay the ground for a New Era to root, conscious of our obligations to future generations.

Carlos Barrios, who was trained as an Ajq'ij in the Maya tradition, has this to share in regards to 2012:

"Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action...The prophesized changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are.

"This is a crucially important moment for humanity and for earth. Each person is important. If you have incarnated into this era, you have spiritual work to do balancing the planet...The greatest wisdom is in simplicity. Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It's not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It's encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way."



Is 2012 going to be the "End of The World?"

No, not in terms of the complete destruction of the Earth and some kind of annihilation scenario. 2012 is not bringing the end of the planet.

When we contemplate the expression "end of the world" let us realize the term "world" can refer to a cycle; a period of time; a world age era. Therefore 2012 is signaling the completion of one World Age Cycle, transiting into an emerging New World Age to come.

It is said that the world we are ending is the one that is dominated by materialism and ego consciousness, therefore it may be that the world to follow will be founded on different values that honor the spirit of the interdependence of all of life.

There are ideas in the collective mind that assert that 2012 is bringing the "end of the world as we know it," which may be linked with its other association of heralding "the end of linear time," and no one can say how valid these claims may be. However, based on the complex situation we are in as a planet, no one can predict the longevity of our modern world with all of its technological dependencies and unsustainable customs. Likewise, the more conscious we become of the non-linear, synchronistic nature of existence, the more rapidly we may indeed evolve beyond the linear time paradigm.

In regards to the ever-increasing attention on the December 21, 2012 date, the living Maya of Guatemala urgently want it to be known that their ancient prophecies have been distorted and misportrayed as doomsday predictions. They do not advocate all the fear and hysteria that is being generated by the sensationalized 2012 rumors, and they want people to be aware that most of the 2012 (mis)information being put out is not sourced from the Maya or their calendars whatsoever, even though it may appear to be associated with them.

In regards to the popular fascination with the possible "end of the world" cataclysm scenario in 2012, it is important to understand that these modern fantasies projected from our collective psyche are reflecting our internal process of fearing how out of harmony with nature we are collectively living. There is a sense of an impending retaliation from nature that will come, as a great punishment upon our misguided human world.

While it is clear we are living in times of great uncertainty and great imbalance, we need to realize that terrorizing ourselves by energizing fear-based rumors does not assist us in rising to the great challenges we face. Fear is a primal universal human reality, based on understanding how vulnerable we actually are, yet we need to understand that if we believe in all the fear thoughts, we can easily become shut down, delusional or reactionary in ways that feed the fear and lead us further into darkness.

In this time of prophecy, we need to move from motivating ourselves not from fear, but from awareness. To navigate these critical times on earth, in addition to our discernment and our intuition, we must find our hearts and follow their inspiration, for they are our purest guides and can help us tune into our unique path of service.

When we contemplate what the world might be like beyond 2012, let us be clear that no one can predict the specifics of how things may appear as we enter this new cycle, or whether the transformations still to come may emerge gradually or swiftly. Everything depends on how conscious we can become as a species, and how we all contribute to this process of awakening our human potential. The details of how this new era may actually manifest is up to the merits of our collective creativity and the possible breakthroughs which can unfold through our resourcefulness and ingenuity.

Carlos Barrios, from the Eagle Clan of the Mam Maya of Guatemala shares in regards to 2012:

"The world will not end. It will be transformed... Everything will change...Change is accelerating now, and it will continue to accelerate...If the people of the earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape, without having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise to a new, higher level. But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way...Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change. From this we will have the opportunity to be more human..."

What is supposed to happen in 2012?

An important point made by Mayan Ajq'ij Carlos Barrios, is that in regards to the warnings from the ancients of possible catastrophies yet to come, it is critical we realize that it is within our power to change the outcome. He says it is within our power to prevent the worst case self-destruction scenarios from happening, and instead rise to a new level of evolution.

As Mr. Barrios shares: "This is the time people need to know what is the purpose of their own lives. This is a dangerous time because we can go to the next step, to the transition, to the fusion of the polarities, or it is a time when we can be destroyed. This materialistic way of life, all this business about economic and social position in the world, it needs to change and the people need to go inside themselves in order to know what they are and to find harmony with the mother earth, with human beings, with their brothers, with the animals, with the plants. It's an important time because we are in the moment of the prophesies and humanity can be destroyed or we can be saved, all together."

In this process of taking our power, it is important that we take our attention off of the 2012 date as being some linear point in the future that some event is going to happen that determines our fate. The reality is we are on a journey, right now, through the shifting of world age cycles. We have to understand this is a PROCESS we are now in, not a product that will necessarily arrive on a particular day and time. As is obvious, focusing on future projections is a distraction to this moment and its opportunities. While maintaining awareness of the larger context of this time of prophecy, we know that this here and now is where our life is playing out; rather than projecting imaginations into the future, this is the moment of empowerment.

Also, in a broader sense, if we contemplate the theme of Apocalypse that is being associated with the 2012 prophecy, we can learn a lot by looking into the original meaning of the word Apocalypse: Revealing of that which has been hidden; lifting of the veil; uncovering. We can see this phenomena in our world as the covers are being lifted, the veils are thinning, and we are being shown many dimensions that have previously been hidden. The corruption and insanity within ourselves and those in positions of power in the world is being rapidly exposed, as is the profound and untapped depths of beauty and wisdom living within our own hearts now revealing itself!"

My Personal Story of Awakening


I was 17 years old. I had been practicing witchcraft for 4 years at this point. Was fairly aware of energy, spirits around me at times, and I paid attention to my dreams. I didn't often have dreams of intuitional nature, but occasionally would have a strange dream about the book my mom was reading, or my mom, sister and I would have the same dream. At the age of 11 or 12 I had a couple very vague memories of past human lives, but they were usually triggered by music. I think I was consciously aware of things much earlier than most kids...either that, or all kids are but can't remember. I remember at the age of three having fairly complex and philisophical ideas for being so young. And I can remember as young as only a few months old, and understanding things.

I lived in South Carolina the end of my 17th year and I was starting to have dreams about a strange daemonic vampire like woman, very unattractive looking, with long red hair, and strange fangs. In these dreams, she was doing very horrible things to my friend and ex, Merdin. I gave him a call, and he was having the same dreams and so was his best friend, Eirc having a few other dreams that were similar, but I can't remember what they were now.

Around the same time I started having dreams about possums. In these dreams, the possum would chase me around my house, and in my sleep(sleep within sleep) it would actually sexually assault me, which of course, freaked me out a bit. The end of the dream it chased me into a room that had a baloney and I jumped off into what I think now was a portal into the Void...it was blackness, oblivion.

When I awoke, I felt traumatized and called my boyfriend at the time who was Cherokee and practiced his people's faith. Him and his friend went into my house and did a complete Cleansing and banishing, with sage and sweet grass, and left protection amulets in my room. His mom said that sometimes spirits, or ghosts, will take the form of an animal to try and attack you in your dreams, celestial skinwalkers. I wasn't sure this was the case, but didn't know what else to think. The purification didn't work, I had more dreams of possums, though he didn't sexually assault me. But my sage kept getting hidden in my room, and something kept moving my guitar and ceiling fan, freaking me out. I did my own banishing, and it would only work for a day or so. I would have dreams of black hooded figures, and even more dreams of the evil woman with red hair.

I was sitting on the beach one day, staring into the Clouds, and there was a cloud that took the form of a bird, and then shifted over the sun, and I could see a face coming out of it, her black and red hair flowing around the edge of the sun. She spoke to me. It was very real. I don't remember what she said, but she told me that things would be different from now on and I would find her someday, and something about a Tower. I didn't know what to think, but assumed she was some sort of Goddess guiding me. At one point, I discovered an ancient fort, from the Spanish period, which had many rumors circulating about satanic sacrifice of infants and raccoons and chickens being performed there. I was naturally drawn to the place, exploring it's tunnels, and accidentally walking into a Voodoo ritual being performed by some locals. I ended up meeting one of the Voodoo priestesses, and she explained to my friend and I why the Ford was considered sacred. She said it held a portal that led to the polar powers of the Universe. This seemed rather far fetched, but at the same time, when your there, you know it's true. One side represented Light, the other Darkness, and the middle: Balance. Each section had prison pits, and one was full of life, another dead plants, and in the middle, death and life. There was also a torture chamber, a large stone block with chains, and once there were doors that led deep into the earth, where you could explore for hours. I have returned twice since, and those doors have now been blocked off, and it's hard to even tell they ever existed.

I turned 18 and returned to Iowa in June. Nothing really happened all summer, but I was partying a lot, so not very ideal conditions for awakening. But then the dreams began again, of the red haired woman, in autumn. It was my Senior year in highschool and I had the busy social life, I'm not sure how I had time to just randomly awaken. I was spending a lot of time with my new friends Temperance, Willow, Moondancer, and my girlfriend, Thuriza. .

And then Merdin called me out of the blue. We were pretty good friends still, but didn't spend too much time together. He wanted to do a Samhain ritual for Halloween, and I was game. He told me he was having the dreams again and weird things were freaking him out, wherever he went. He showed up at 8pm in my home town with his friend Indigo and we drove around downtown looking for Temperance and found her pretty quickly. We proceeded to the ritual space, on Temperance's private land, and it was a typical Samhain ritual, at first. We danced around the bonfire, chanting, all the usual. And then toward the end of the ritual, we all started hearing very distinct noises. They grew louder and were very obviously voices. Wow, I can't remember for the life of me what they were saying now, but it was threatening...I think one told us to open the circle. But the ritual was over, and we couldn't just sit in the woods all night listening to spirits threaten us. So we packed up all the ritual supplies, and waited till the last second to open the circle and run for the car. As soon as the circle was cut and opened, we felt like they swarmed over us, like a black wind. We jumped in the car and sped away, putting the pedal to the metal, but to no avail. It was a very powerful car, I don't know much about engines, but he was a mechanic and built it himself. We weren't going more than 15 miles an hour because something was holding on to the entire car, dragging us back. Finally after what must have been three minutes of this, we broke free, and Merdin s driving 130 miles down the road into town. We could feel whatever it was tracking us, and then Temperance started screaming and pointing at Merdin's head. She said a daemon with red eyes was jumping into his head, and as we all focused our energy to get rid of it, it looped back and entered her, and she passed out and stopped breathing. Now the most remarkable thing here, was Merdin turned around in his seat, while blazing down the road at that speed, let go of the wheel, and half way jumped in the back seat and put his forehead on  Temperance's and forced the spirit out and then she could breath again.

The attacks ended, so we went to Perkins and had coffee for a few hours, discussing what the hell was going on. Temperance showed us she had amazing gifts of clairvoyance. She sat there and described things she would never have known for hours. We decided to start meeting frequently, to train to avoid that sort of thing. Merdin and I noticed we had identical marks on our palms, the Triad mark. His uncle had explained to him that it was a mark of being chosen for something, of the warriors ranks. We noticed Temperance and Indigo both had similar marks. So we went home very late and went to sleep.

I was rudely awoken by Temperance running in my door the next morning to drag me off to school. We went to an alternative highschool, so we didn't have to get up so early, but today was a field trip for Diversity day. I get in the van that was picking me up and there is sitting Braunwen, my soon to be friend for a lifetime, and we were introduced for the very first time. We discussed witchcraft for a while. She told us of a couple strange experiences she had. We told her what happened the night before and she was intrigued.. She showed us some pictures of her, and we both looked at each other and said RAVEN!

We went home, and Temperance did some psychic readings on Branwen and then she and I did a silent reading of each other's minds, and we both saw the same thing. A tall Crystal Tower standing over a cliff, with mushrooms on the ground, and a large Pyramid with an Eye in the center of it.

Couple days later my mom kinda freaked out on me and kicked me out. A few minutes after that Merdin's mom freaked out and kicked him out. An hour later Temperance's parents freaked out on her and kicked her out. Our friend Eric was already homeless, his parents kicked him out a few days before that. So something really wanted us to live together. We stayed with Indigo for about a week , I'd say. There we met the man with the Pyramid Eye on his back. We met Jake the first night we stayed there. Temperance, Merdin, Indigo, Jake, Draven and I all sat in a circle and played with energy balls while we told him of the strange things happening to us. He told us it was the Awakening, and one of the spirits attacking us was called Dor Mont, and he drew a picture of him, exactly how Temperance had drawn it days before. And then he changed, I was the first to notice. His eyes were different, and his voice shifted slightly. I said "Your not Jake anymore" And he then introduced himself as Dretzel. I can't remember for the life of me what all Dretzel told us that night, but I think she was teaching us things. We went downstairs and Merdin, Temperance and I were sitting on the floor as Indigo started fighting w/ her crazy redneck boyfriend. The energy was intense. Jake walked downstairs and looked like he was about to kill everyone in the room, but sat calmly next to us. Temperance abruptly jumps up and runs out the door, and we slowly follow. And then everything was in slow motion. The faster I ran after her, the father away she seemed to be. Everything had a sort of  blue light, exactly like in a dream. Then I realized I had had the dream before. All my senses were suddenly alive. It felt like another world. I was running down the sidewalk in Waterloo, on the street that Branwen and Shadow and Seika would later live on years later. And I yell Temperance DON'T DO IT! She stops and she's closer to me than I thought. She was trying to kill herself, and she didn't know why, except she felt like she needed to. She was about to step in front of a moving car. She walks off with Jake and we spend the next week or so studying together, learning about the daemons trying to attack us, and learning what exactly we were into. It seemed very obvious suddenly, that we were meant to fight off something, to protect the innocent, to bring back magic and Spirit to us and the people around us...a shift not only of our own consciousness, but of the world as a whole. Something big was going to happen and we had to stop it.

A week later Indigo's fiance was convinced that she was having sex with Merdin and decided to chase us around town with a shotgun, until we stood at our windows with two bow and arrows, and he decided it wasn't worth it. We were homeless again, and had to go back and forth between staying in motels and sleeping at Merdin's mom's house, she didn't like us. She thought we were evil. One time she apparently got possessed by a picture of a daemon he drew...sat there and cut herself over the picture for hours and then put HIM in the psych-ward because he yelled at her for releasing the daemon. lol. Fun times.

We never saw Jake nor Draven but years later, by happy coincidence Branwen is introduced to Shadow, who just so happened to have been good friends with Draven and Jake. lol.

One afternoon Branwen, Merdin, Temperance, myself, and our new recruit Squire went into the ditch near a 'friend's' house. He wasn't a friend, they had actually gone there to beat him up for doing something messed up, but decided against it once we got there. We ended up stuck there all day, and hanging out with him, and things seemed ok. But then came the Red Head, finally.She called herself Vesta. She looked exactly like we thought, and we knew who and what she was. The one that would break us all apart. But Merdin must have been intrigued or something, and hooked up with her that night. She put, from what he described, 1000 daemons in his head. He ran up the stairs screaming, and he asked what to do. We told him to make her leave, and he did, but she unplugged the alarm clock before she left, knowing we needed it to get out of the house before the crazy mother came home. We were caught, and even more homeless than before.

But Merdin's uncle had a friend named Dan, who said he wanted to train us. I ended up training him, I guess his uncle thought we were all newbs or something, but the guy turned out alright. He didn't know about the Omni, but he seemed to know something weird was going on. I don't know how it happened, but after only a couple weeks, Merdin found Vesta again and within 12 hours he bought her a diamond ring and proposed to her. When he broke the 'happy' news, we weren't exactly sure what to do. She moved in with us and we weren't very pleased. This only lasted for a couple days. He kept whispering to us "HELP ME, she is controlling me", but then yell and threaten us when we actually tried to help or make her leave. He was a zombie. They left, and we all went back to our homes, our parents apparently wanting us to come home. We lost Merdin. One down, more to go. Most of the time when we lost members to 'corruption' it was due to someone taking power that wasn't theres, usually accepting power from someone like Yakshawnah, or Yellow Eyes. But in return, they got something not much more than enslavement. But other times, they just wanted it all for themselves.

Moving back to my home town I began working with Branwen more, among others. Months went by. We learned more, I learned how to invoke, first with She-Ma and then with Dretzel. They gave us limitless amounts of information and we tried to record everything that happened to us. I began to awaken to my otherkin forms, and start remembering a bit of past lives. It seemed everywhere we went, everyone we hung out with, seemed to be mildly to greatly awakened. We started having meetings, sometimes every week, or twice a week. We trained, we fought, we put the pieces together. And then Squire left for a weekend. Turns out he spent the weekend with Merdin and Vesta. He came back, head shaved, hallow look in his eyes. A zombie, again. Of course, not literally, but it wouldn't have surprised me. Within a few days he flipped out on me and left my house for good. He tried to run me over with his car several months later. Temperance was off and on going kinda weird on us, but she seemed ok for a while, at least a year. We were working with so many people, I can't even begin to remember all the people now. In the winter we began working with a girl named Lynnae, and in the spring she introduced us to Seika, who was a member with us until just 2005. Things took off. Meetings were more frequent. More information was gathered. We knew what we were up against, and we knew we were destined to do it together. And Temperance got pregnant, by a man named Mikael., Yakshawnah's son. She went back and forth for a long time until she realized what she was. And then literally out of nowhere, Merdin came back! Walked into my house, and I have no idea how he found it, for I had moved many months after we had lost touch. He hugged me and said he was free of her spell. Everything felt right again, we had one of our most powerful warriors back. But I'm pretty sure I'm the only one that felt that. He was still corrupted. Months later he admitted he only returned to destroy the group. For some reason I hooked back up with him, and I got pregnant. But only for three months. I accidentally invoked Yakshawnah one night and he stole the child, somehow, I don't know how. The fetus was gone and the doctors couldn't explain it, but the surgery was horrible. We pursued on, and in April, a year and a half after our awakening, I went on the road, and didn't come back for a while. I went to search for others, but it was hard at first. Perhaps my cloaks were too strong, I'm not sure. But that problem only lasted for a while. I came back and forth, from my hometown area to Iowa City, to back on the road. It was hard to know what was going on, separated from the people I was working with for years now. So Branwen and Seika and I created the Tribe of Omni, on bolt.com. Apparently networking across the globe was the biggest pain in the ass I've ever undertaken, but I've found lifelong friends and companions, and there is definitely something that draws us all together. Although not everyone made it, and that makes me a little disheartened from time to time.




Ok, that was long for even my standards. But I felt it was important to describe the entire process of the first couple years so others could relate. Hope you enjoyed rather than plow through it wondering when I'd stop rambling.
