During these last days, we have seen the world systems shutting down. It is a time to pause. To reflect. To listen to Nature’s direction. For the last three months we have been helping to organize a private council gathering in Stockholm, March 26-29, 2020— The Mother Earth Delegation of United Indigenous Nations of the North. Indigenous representatives, spiritual authorities, faith keepers, tribal council leaders from the Sami territories of Finland, Sweden, Norway and Russia, North, South and Central America, Greenland, India, New Zealand, Africa, and Australia, were coming together in a four-day private council in Stockholm, Sweden. Now most countries are banning air travel and meetings with the public due to the coronavirus.
Due to this international situation, there is a heightened need for collaboration among the indigenous peoples of the world to protect their sacred lands and indigenous rights. They carry the voice for the Mother Earth. It is time to stand with this wisdom. Our times are calling for all nations to enter into this collaboration. Nature has a way to respond to these times, if we will but listen.
Let me take a moment to share how this delegation was born. The Mother Earth Delegation of United Indigenous Nations of the North is a gathering organized by delegates that attended The Flourishing Diversity Summit at London University in September 2019. This original meeting opened a platform for Indigenous Peoples in accordance to ancestral protocols and guidelines to stand up for the Rights of Mother Earth and Nature’s Laws, reclaiming their inherent sovereignty and restoring their Original Caretaker roles of their territories.
A ceremonial call to action was carried out uniting all nations through the heart with Mother Earth and for future generations. This call to action was in response to the news that 2 1/2 tons of radioactive waters was poured into our oceans from Fukushima and more fires set in the Amazon.
A fully united moment brought the awareness that we can no longer keep trying to get the establishment to listen. It is time for us to listen to the direction available through Nature’s laws. It is time to step out of systems that are failing to sustain life, and step into solutions collaboratively designed for all life.
When our team met a few days ago to determine what the Mother Earth was asking us to do in the midst of this challenge, the guidance brought to us was how important it is for each of us to light a ceremonial fire with our communities. In this way, we are honoring the Mother Earth and the direction She is giving us now as we take this time to pause and listen. The Sami of Sweden will still be lighting a uniting Sacred fire with some of the organizers in Stockholm on the morning of March 28th at 9am pacific. This means that fires will be lite around the world all day, as this prayer moves through the time zones. The delegates will take the 4 days we were to be together physically, to be together in ceremony and prayer around the world – lighting our own fires at the same time. The delegates will then join their prayers with the Sami fire and prayers in Sweden on the morning of March. 28th at 9am pacific. In this way, we can unite ourselves standing firmly with and for Mother Earth. Join us!!!
On March 28th at 11am pacific, we will be holding an Online Conference Call that is open to all. It will be on zoom with live streaming on Youtube and Facebook access. We are inviting all delegates to bring their wisdom and guidance to share with the world. What is the Mother Earth telling us during this challenge with the Coronavirus? What does She need us to do individually and globally? As we come out of this crisis, what are the next steps to move forward? The delegation’s guidance through this great cleansing is welcomed and a much-needed gift to the world. Join us!!!!
As Jingki, an Australian delegate, said, “ It is time to stand in our zero points. It is time to stand with our communities.” Delegates went on to say that it is a time for the men of our communities to stand firmly with the strong feminine energy that is taking us forward. Be focused. Be strong. Rest within the Mother Earth’s movement. Don’t be distracted. These are some of the delegate’s direction.
This is a notice to hold the date of March 28th. We are organizing this online gathering so that as many of you that want to join from around the world can. The first part of next week we will be sending out another notice, so that you can register. Following that you will receive an email giving the instructions with how to join. We hope to see you on March 28th!!! As the aboriginal elders say, “We are calling a New Way Of Dreaming”. All those that have heard the call of the grandmothers are gathering. Join us!
