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.

The Twenty Count: What Do You Have To Give?

The Elders say the Twenty Count brought into existence the energy motion vibration of all forms of all things. All things have a vibratory energy, an essence, a form. We say that is its giveaway… its heart, its beauty, its medicine. There is no such thing as nothingness. The energy in motion of one thing is interconnected with and directly influences and is felt by every other thing.

Within the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Twenty Counts have only one task: to give away their power to us as an act of empowerment.

You may ask, “What do I have to give back?” How can I possibly (for example) empower the sun?

The answer to this question is RESPECT.

You must keep a proper attitude and express your appreciation for its gift. Without the sun there would be no life. Stop complaining about how hot it is. Stop referring to a cloudy day as a bad day. All faces of the sun are a mirror reflection for us.

It is in this way we learn to come into balance and alignment with the powers of the universe. It is in this way, we step into co-empowerment with all of creation.
