Native American Indian Spirit of Meditation



Message from Chief Arvol Looking Horse.

(Question from Blue Feather Spirit – Is this message more important Now, than it was 14  years ago?)

Mitakuye (my relative),

I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nation, ask you  to understand an Indigenous perspective on what has happened in America, what we  call “Turtle Island.” My words seek to unite the global community through a  message from our sacred ceremonies to unite spiritually, each in our own ways of  beliefs in the Creator.

We have been warned from Ancient Prophecies of these times we live in  today,  but have also been given a very important message about a solution to  turn  these terrible times around.

To understand the depth of this message you must recognize the importance of  Sacred Sites and realize the interconnectedness of what is happening today, in  reflection of the continued massacres that are occurring on other lands and our  own Americas.

I have been learning about these important issues since the age of 12, upon  receiving the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle and its teachings. Our  people have striven to protect Sacred Sites from the beginning of time. These  places have been violated for centuries and have brought us to the predicament  that we are in at the global level.

Look around you. Our Mother Earth is very ill from these violations, and we are  on the brink of destroying the possibility of a healthy and nurturing survival  for generations to come, our children’s children.

Our ancestors have been trying to protect our Sacred Site called the Sacred  Black Hills in South Dakota, “Heart of Everything That Is,” from continued  violations. Our ancestors never saw a satellite view of this site, but now that  those pictures are available, we see that it is in the shape of a heart and,  when fast-forwarded, it looks like a heart pumping.

The Dine have been protecting Big Mountain, calling it the liver, and we  are  suffering and going to suffer more from the extraction of the coal from there  and the poison processes used in doing so.

The Aborigines have warned of the contaminating effects of global warming  on  the Coral Reefs, which they see as Mother Earth’s blood purifier.

The Indigenous people of the rainforest relay that the rainforest are the lungs  of the planet and need protection.

The Gwich’in Nation has had to face oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife  Refuge coastal plain, also known to the Gwich’in as “Where life  begins!”

The coastal plain is the birthplace of many life forms of the Animal Nations.  The death of these Animal Nations will destroy Indigenous Nations in  this  territory.

As these destructive developments continue all over the world, we will witness  many more extinct Animal, Plant, and Human Nations, because of mankind’s misuse  of power and their lack of understanding of the “balance of life.”

The Indigenous people warn that these destructive developments will cause havoc  globally. There are many, many more Indigenous awareness and knowledge about  Mother Earth’s Sacred Sites, her Chakras, connections to our spirit that  will  surely affect our future generations.

There needs to be a fast move toward other forms of energy that are safe  for  all Nations upon Mother Earth. We need to understand the types of minds that are  continuing to destroy the spirit of our whole global community. Unless we do   this, the powers of destruction will overwhelm us. Our Ancestors foretold that   water would someday be for sale. Back then, this was hard to believe, since the   water was so plentiful, so pure, and so full of energy, nutrition, and spirit.

Today we have to buy pure water, and even then the nutritional minerals have  been taken out; it’s just empty liquid. Someday water will be like gold,  too  expensive to afford.

Not everyone will have the right to drink safe water. We fail to appreciate and  honor our Sacred Sites, ripping out the minerals and gifts that lay underneath  them as if Mother Earth were simply a resource, instead of the Source of Life  itself.

Attacking Nations and having to utilize more resources to carry out destruction  in the name of peace is not the answer! We need to understand how  all these  decisions affect the Global Nation; we will not be immune to its repercussions.  Allowing continual contamination of our food and land is  affecting the way we  think.

A “disease of the mind” has set in world leaders and many members of our global  community, with their belief that a solution of retaliation and destruction of  peoples will bring Peace.

In our Prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either  unite  spiritually as a Global Nation, or be faced with chaos, disasters,  diseases,  and tears from our relatives’ eyes.

We are the only species that is destroying the Source of Life, meaning Mother  Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land, using  chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother  Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war.

I ask you to join me on this endeavor. Our vision is for the Peoples of all  continents, regardless of their beliefs in the Creator, to come together as one   at their Sacred Sites to pray and meditate and commune with one another, thus   promoting an energy shift to heal our Mother Earth and achieve a universal  consciousness toward attaining Peace.

As each day passes, I ask all Nations to begin a global effort, and  remember to  give thanks for the Sacred Food that has been gifted to us by our  Mother Earth,  so the nutritional energy of medicine can be guided to heal our  minds and  spirits.

This new millennium will usher in an age of harmony or it will bring the  end of  life as we know it. Starvation, war, and toxic waste have been the hallmark of  the Great Myth of Progress and Development that ruled the last millennium.

To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth, falls the responsibility of  turning back the powers of destruction.  You yourself are the one who must  decide.

You alone – and only you – can make this crucial choice, to walk in honor  or to  dishonor your relatives. On your decision depends the fate of the entire World.

Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the  future of humankind.

Did you think the Creator would create unnecessary people in a time of such  terrible danger?

Know that you yourself are essential to this World. Believe that!  Understand  both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are  desperately needed  to save the soul of this World. Did you think you were put  here for something  less? In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no  ending!
