A summary of Kate Spreckley's 'Daily Inspiration' series from the week starting 22nd April.
22nd April: Earth Day
Last century an old wise woman of the Cree Indian nation, named "Eyes of Fire", had a vision of the future. She prophesied that one day, because of the white mans' greed, there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist. There would come a time when the "keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals, and myths, and all the Ancient Tribal Customs" would be needed to restore us to health, making the earth green again. They would be mankind's key to survival, they were the "Warriors of the Rainbow". There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom and recognition of the Great Spirit.
The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would spread these messages and teach all peoples of the Earth. They would teach them how to live the "Way of the Great Spirit". They would tell them of how the world today has turned away from the Great Spirit and that is why our Earth is "Sick".
The "Warriors of the Rainbow" would show the peoples that this "Ancient Being" (the Great Spirit), is full of love and understanding, and teach them how to make the Earth beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people principles or rules to follow to make their path light with the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding. They would teach of Harmony among people in all four corners of the Earth.
Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the peoples how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race. Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding and respect for all mankind, Nature and the Great Spirit.
They would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls, and deeds with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the Master of Life - the Great Spirit! They would find strength and beauty in prayer and the solitude of life.
Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth. Free from the fears of toxins and destruction, wrought by the whiteman and his practices of greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished. The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected and conservation of all that is beautiful would become a way of life.
The poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of their daily lives.
The leaders of the people would be chosen in the old way - not by their political party, or who could speak the loudest, boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, but by those whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love, wisdom and courage and those who showed that they could and did work for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs. They would be chosen by their "quality" and not the amount of money they had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted "Ancient Chiefs", they would understand the people with love, and see that their young were educated with the love and wisdom of their surroundings. They would show them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills, and restore it to health and beauty.
The tasks of these "Warriors of the Rainbow" are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart. They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this road of returning "Mother Earth" to beauty and plenty - once more.
The day will come, it is not far away.
The day that we shall see how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals, stories, legends and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return to "harmony" with Nature, Mother Earth and mankind. It will be with this knowledge that we shall find our "Key to our Survival".
This is the story of the "Warriors of the Rainbow". (http://www.birdclan.org/)
23rd April: Chambers of Rebirth
The condition of the world is dependent on the condition of humanity's consciousness. Evolution must happen for new life to develop and grow. Now more than ever it is important that we stand in the truth of who we authentically are and harness the energy of our souls to bring forth a new reality and new world. As a result, a deepening awareness of nature and our dependance on the Earth is emerging. We are being offered the freedom to become fully awake, fully consciousness and to know the Earth as a scared sanctuary.
At this time you are being called to travel deeply inward into the chambers or rebirth. In this space you are being pulled into the vast mystery of your soul to acquire vision and perspective. Now is the time to be mindful of the path that you are taking. To reflect on your actions, your thoughts and your feelings. Be conscious of the growth that is available to you now as the seeds of new possibilities and new potentials begin to sprout.
24th April: Stay the Course
Consciousness is expanding as humanity rises to a new level of awareness and understanding. Our experience of life is changing, transforming our perceptions and how we view our lives, our relationships and our world. As a result, a whole range of new expressions and manifestations is beginning to emerge to support us in building our new realities.
The energetic storms will continue to come through at a persistent pace to cleanse all unwanted and stagnant energies. Do not get drawn into the drama's unfolding around you as this will pull you into chaos and confusion. Take responsibility for your own life, your own choices and the decisions you need to make. Allow nature to support you as her healing forces will aid you in balancing your emotional and mental aspects. Set aside time each day to consciously connect with the rhythms and energy of nature. This will help you to perceive the true energy of each day and motivate you in moving forward. Stay the course!
26th April: A Unified Force
As we move beyond the enormous belief patterns of the collective we attune with cosmic consciousness and the many facets of our unique soul. Boundaries and limitations fall away enabling our soul to create a unified force through which a new reality of love, harmony, balance and peace can emerge. In this reality our soul consciousness is able to expand and reconnect with its full potential.
Your call now is to take big, bold steps into the unknown. To leave the past behind and get your priorities straight. Hidden fears and suppressed emotions may still be arising. Be kind, gentle and compassionate with yourself but do not let your doubts deter you or keep your bound. Let go of old comforts. Now is the time to move beyond obstacles and challenges. Your duty is to remember your old and wise soul, to uncover its truth and to break through that which continues to cloud your inner divine light. Take appropriate action. Practice emotional and mental discipline and seek to become a master of self. Do not turn your back on the world. Face it head on and you will come to see and understand just how connected, centred and filled with purpose you are.
