Message from White Eagle, Hopi indigenous.

“This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole. The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.

If you repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole. But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal. Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual House.

Learn about resistance of the indigenous and African peoples; we have always been, and continue to be, exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire, and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time.

You do not help at all being sad and without energy. You help if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, each of you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world.

You need to be well and strong. And for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy, and bright vibration…This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you cross this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties.

This is what is asked of you:
Allow yourself to take advantage of this time to perform your vision-seeking rituals. What world do you want to build for you? For now, this is what you can do — serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray every day. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day.

Good things emanate; what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith, and love.”🌎

Just because the world’s going to hell in a handbasket doesn’t mean we have to rend our clothes and slit our wrists. We’re not required to drag ourselves through pleasureless and meaningless days with a black cloud trailing behind us. Things won’t get better by the energies of depression and defeat. Yes, things are looking dire right now, I admit it, but beauty surrounds us. Joy is to be found inside us simply by looking for it.

Creativity exists. Delight in simple things exists. Human beings can sing, dance and create beauty in a million ways.

The least we can do is to cultivate our own joy and delight in living. We are each responsible for a little part of healing the world. Find your joy and magnify it, focus on it. The world needs exactly that. Your playfulness, your joy is medicine the world needs.

We all need to be reminded that we are always either helping or hindering a thriving planet. We are not disconnected, powerless beings. We are each integrated into the creative matrix whether we know it or not. Believing in our separation and impotence is a common idea in our culture. We disempower ourselves with such ideas. Native cultures are in touch with the web of life in ways that seem mysterious to us. Interconnection and energy flows are still obvious to them, in spite of our attempts to obliterate their vision of life. They have insights we need now. They waited patiently until we could receive our lessons. Most of us are still rushing toward the abyss, but a few are waking up and looking for another way.

We are witnessing a time of transformation. We have a chance to mutate into better humans. Let’s not go back to sleep.
