Rainbows & Rivers
Do you love looking at a rainbow after the rain? My privileged lucky friend, recently saw a triple rainbow over a river.
Rainbows create excitement and possibilities. Just by bringing forward to the conscious mind, absurd (yet it could be true) mythological question of: I wonder if there is a pot of gold near here?
These majestic multicoloured phenomena are represented everywhere in human culture. Tribes like the Zuni of New Mexico, the Hopi, the Cherokee, the Cree, all have representations of the rainbow in their art and mythology.
Eyes of Fire
What grabbed my attention about the rainbow recently was a Cree story and prophecy by an old woman called ‘Eyes of Fire.’
Eyes of Fire prophesied that because of human greed the earth would get sick, and the animals and fish would die. When these things begin to happen, a new type of conscious human being will emerge bringing hope.
This new conscious human will be the keepers of legends, stories, culture, and rituals. Witches, warlocks, priests, shamans, pastors and druids are a few we could name. They would be called Rainbow Warriors. She predicted that the ancient customs and knowledge, although now out of scientific fashion, would be needed to heal the earth. Tools of the conscious human Rainbow Warriors
The Rainbow Warriors are the key element to heal and renew and ensure mankind and the earths survival.
Asking if our myths and prophecies are true or not, for me, is missing the point of the lessons they are trying to teach us.
Like a rainbow warrior, I want to learn my legends, understand my rituals, and use all of my resources to know myself and the earth intimately. Every tool at my disposal will be used to bring about a new me, before it’s too late.
Reading today an article about creating a ceremony to say good bye to a dream, an ambition that is dead and is no longer possible, my scream of, ‘No!’ escaped before I could stop myself. A few polite people turned their heads to look at the loud, screaming guy in the corner of the popular coffee shop with free internet.
Our dreams and ambitions must be saved and cherished. I want to rekindle my ‘Eyes of Fire’ before I have to bury them. Sitting on my rocking chair way out in my future looking back over my life and I want to say: yes, I really lived.
Recovering in time, I want to reclaim my power and my ambition to live authentically and uniquely and make a real difference.
