A Great Urgency
To All World Religious and Spiritual LeadersMy Relatives,
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spiritof your Nations in prayer.We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color,which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened,those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations,eventually all will be affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. Thecatastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like thebleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that wecannot afford to continue to make.I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer withthe whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues willcontinue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us ofin their Prophecies.I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayersfor the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we asSpiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers toallow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth.As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally toassist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc¹I Maka).We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That thewinds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided inrepairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as wemake the choice to change the destructive path we are on.As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And thatwhat we create can have lasting effects on all life.So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Alongwith this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, WorldPeace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a naturalsite, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let usmake a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for ourchildren¹s future and well-being, and the generations to come.
