Rainbow Bridge Prophecies of Turtle Island

rainbow-bridge

The Rainbow Bridge Prophecies of Turtle Island (North, South, and Central America) are visions of power first foretold over three thousand years ago.  They reveal the probability of certain events occurring over time.  Most important, they challenge us to wake up, claim the best of ourselves, and carry that excellence as the banner for peace, harmony, and individual, autonomous freedom for all life on this planet.

The prophecies use the metaphor of a Great Horse Race, with eight horses of different colors representing humanity’s different choices at critical turning points in our interaction with one another, with the Earth, and with life in general.  In the original speaking of the prophecies, the metaphorical animals were seen as dogs, for the dog is the keeper of the belief systems of a people.  The Spanish destruction and conquest resulted in the introduction of the horse to the continent, and the Elders saw that the medicine, or alchemy, of the Race would change.  The medicine of the horse is that it is the carrier of the belief systems of a people; thus, the Race became a Race of Horses.

Of the eight horses in the Race, four represent the four directions of the Wheel of Life, and they hold the balance and stability in the Race.  These horses are the Red Horse, White Horse, Dark Horse, and Gold Horse.  More information about each horse will be presented over the next few days.

Four Elements ~ Fire

The Four Elements are the building blocks of all Creation on Grandmother Earth, and therefore, stabilize our world.

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 1.04.53 PMIn the East is the element of Fire.  Fire teaches us expansion. It could be a small candlelight, or a raging forest fire, or the campfire which warms you on a cold night. Did you know that fire is a chemical reaction that emits light and heat, similar to the sun?  Or that Earth is the only planet that has enough oxygen that allows fire to burn?

Our spiritual aspect is the inner reflection of the fire element.  When we are fully aligned with Spirit, we expand into the creative potential of all life.  Our passion, hope, and joy are fueled by the strength of our spiritual determination.

What are you passionate about?  Do you starve your inner fires with restricting belief systems (withholding oxygen rich air)?   Or do you fuel the hungers that bring you pleasure and knowledge?  Think about the many ways you have experienced fire and you will know the East energies.

Align with the Fire Element and expand into the unknown.

Opening the Gates to the Human World, Part 5

Opening the gates to the human worldNote: December 21, 2012 was the final day in one of the Long Counts in the Mayan Calendar.  There were rumors that the end of that long count would also be the “end of the world”.  Within the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, this date represents the opportunity to enter a new world: the human world.  This is the fifth in a series, written by Janneke Koole, on the opening of the gates to the human world. In Part 5, we look at the North and Northeast directions related to this prophecy.


NORTH – THE WHITE HORSE

This is the place of our philosophies and belief systems, the place we educate ourselves and make a statement, take a stand and develop our stance in relation to general knowledge.

Unfortunately, the brilliance of our technological development is tarnished with greed and the power of profit-making has led us to ignore and sometimes downright violate the Children’s Fire. When we are alienated from the Children’s Fire, we make decisions that destroy for no good reason (other than our evil-minded greed). Corporate greed has destroyed many a small community, taken prices for everyday necessities to excessive heights, and lain to waste much fertile land.

What can we do to make a difference? “It is only through ignorance that men surrender their freedom.” Education is the key! Let’s get the Wheels and Keys into the schools, the communities, and into business. Let’s be bold and daring to speak the unspeakable. Let’s dedicate our efforts, energies, good minds, and full intent to find right solutions to our problems.

NORTHEAST – THE GREEN HORSE

This is the place of our prioritization and energy design and is a direct call to be full determiners in the Human World. What are your priorities, really? And are your decisions lining up with those priorities? If so, your everyday choices should reflect that. Each season, and certainly this one, is a good time to re-evaluate whether your choreography and design is working or whether you are driven by stress. Remember that stress opens the door wide all those internal voices we call pretenders – no good fellows of the dark!

Our Elders say that the dark here is fueling the Dark Horse so strongly that it is five lengths ahead of the Light. We can recognize this to be so when we are daring enough to take in the ugly reality of child slavery and human trafficking, domestic violence, and the precarious condition of global economy.

The good news here is that there is a definite increase in the numbers of people “waking up” to the horror of this evil insanity. More and more people are seeking alternatives, the ancient shamanic knowledge, and the schools of magick and mystery.

What can we do to make a difference? Examine our priorities and practice our Warrior Techniques of Discipline to develop a sincere spiritual diligence. Deepen your connection to Spirit and Nature and fuel your Hope. Be the determiner, the driver of your own vehicle, the spirit in charge of your body. Pledge allegiance to the pursuit of liberty/freedom – both internally and externally. Know that there is a Greater Picture, a Divine Plan, Great Spirit’s Design, and align your free will with the will of Wahkan Tanka.

Opening the Gates to the Human World, Part 3

Opening the gates to the human worldNote: December 21, 2012 was the final day in one of the Long Counts in the Mayan Calendar.  There were rumors that the end of that long count would also be the “end of the world”.  Within the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, this date represents the opportunity to enter a new world: the human world.  This is the third in a series, written by Janneke Koole, on the opening of the gates to the human world. In Part 3, we look at the Southeast and South directions in the prophecy.


SOUTHEAST – THE ORANGE HORSE

The Orange Horse has always held the belief systems of the people concerning peace and all academic pursuits. We now know that external peace is only possible when we have internal peace, when inside ourselves we stop the war between our inner man/woman, when silence the inner dialogue enough to be receptive to truth.

The dark force feeds on all forms of ignorance. And when the people are fed only partial truths, when schools promote mediocrity and squelch free-thinking and true problem-solving, when our leaders and the media models spin-doctoring and double-speaks, then the children are in danger! And the children are the next generation, the future care-takers of Grandmother Earth and her Children.

What can we do to make a difference? Clear our wombs of all forms of pity and dedicate ourselves to develop benevolent compassion. Prepare powerful space of learning and growing for the children. Develop wombs that will welcome new spirits, dharma spirits. Train boys to become men who will seed their dreams of peace with freedom! Learn all about the teachings of the She Thoughts and the Quodoushka and anything that inspires you to express your individuality, your way with power and in beauty.

SOUTH – THE RED HORSE

Rainbow Bridge Prophecies This is the place of the family, Earth Mother, and all the Earth Changes carried by the Red Horse. Grandmother Earth is and will always balance and re-balance herself. She is not in danger – we are! And yes, the earth is changing and we need to find new forms that promote deeper understanding of the Ecological Balance Laws. Study Nature – She knows what She is doing!!

What can we do to make a difference? We can do ceremony – especially at the times Grandmother Earth’s natural cycles (the seasons) and the Sister Moon (new moon and full moon). Make sure your homes are domed. Examine your lifestyle and restore greater value in your everyday environment. Encourage and support the Rites of Passage and honor all parents in their daily challenge to create family. Practice honesty and integrity in all your actions.
