Dear brothers and sisters, Tribe of Many colors
As we are well on our way into the New Year, we can clearly see humanity’s struggle with moving into the new energies of love and light and letting go of the old energies of power, greed and ego. If we look at the world’s news today, it is easy to get disheartened. Global warming is in full swing causing huge droughts and leaving masses of people without water. It is not only causing famine, but also a large-scale migration of people out of several countries. Global warming is causing the die out of many species and has already claimed over 90% of the Great Barrier Reef to be bleached. The list goes on and on when it comes to the damage caused by global warming and above that, we are facing another crisis. That of the rise of far-right, populist world leaders who teach fear and hate. As we see these things taking place, we must remember something one of my elders taught me many years ago. He said: “When the great time of change is upon us we will seehate and fear raise its ugly head and fight its one last fight before change will come.” He explained it in this way: “If you imagine pushing a very aggressive dog into a corner would you expect that dog to simply lay down and become calm? Of course not! That dog will lash out and become as fierce as possible as it has become trapped and is not free to do as it wishes. After time passes and it realizes it cannot escape, slowly it will lay down and accept its situation.” The same scenario can be seen in the world today. Those living in ego and those who are used to ruling the world with power, greed, aggression and hate are trying to make their last stand with all their might knowing that they are being backed into a corner. No, they will not go quietly; they will become aggressive and ugly. We have to remain calm and steadfast in love to soothe the angry beast. In these times of uncertainty and chaos, we must hold steadfast to what we believe in and shine brighter than ever before. Our light will always shine the brightest in the dark! We are now living in the great time of change! It will not be easy but the crack in the wall has already appeared and we are going to help the old walls that have been keeping us imprisoned crumble and fall. It is time for love consciousness to come back to humanity; it is time for us to care about our planet and regain a close and loving relationship with our Mother Earth. The time has come for us to live in harmony with our planet. We cannot longer just use this planet for whatever recourses she can provide until these resources are depleted and then move on to the next. We must start creating a movement for renewable recourses, green energy, respect love and care for all people, from all backgrounds. We have to become united with one heart and demand these things from our politicians and world leaders. We the people have the power, we are the ones who elect our leaders to their positions. Our light cannot go out! This is our moment to stand for change, to stand for love and light and to help the old fall so that we can bring in the new. Do not get disheartened when you see the state of the world, instead be courageous and stand for what you want to see changed, be a part of the great shift that is happening everywhere. The Women’s March in January was the largest single day demonstration in history with over 75 countries marching! Women (and men!) marched to advocate legislation and policies regarding human rights and other issues, including women’s rights, immigration reform, healthcare reform, the natural environment, LGBTQ rights, racial equality, freedom of religion and workers’ rights. There are many beautiful things happening around the world and we need to make sure those are the things we are focusing on. Do not get swept away in the tide of fear and anger, rather focus on the good and on what you can do to help change the world.
Our indigenous elders are telling us to all return to our sacred sites, to pray for our water, to connect to Mother Earth again and for us to grow our courage and our strength together. If we cannot go to an ancient sacred site, we should make one ourselves. We can begin by creating our own sacred medicine wheel or sacred circle.
This year I will be focusing a lot of my energy on doing Shamanic Journeys. I feel it is vitally important to focus on teaching you how to find your true purpose, letting go of the old wounds that are holding you back and teaching you how to reconnect to your ownGreat I Am; how to make your life sacred so that you can empower yourself and learn how to focus your life energy in bringing forth your greatest potential. There are still a couple of spots open for the Shamanic Journey in April and August in Dalfsen (NL).The place in Dalfsen is very remote, we can see the stars at night; there is a lake with beautiful land around it, where we can deeply connect to Mother Earth and the elements. We will find peace and stillness in order to go deeply into the meditative state, to speak with personal guides and totem animals as well as to let go of old patterns, wounds to clear a clean path into higher realms.There is nothing more powerful in a person’s life than the moment one learns to completely shut down the mind and enter into the unseen. I will personally guide each one of you into your own journey and understanding.
I will start this year giving workshops about how to create your own sacred site or medicine wheel. It is important for us to connect ourselves to our Great Mother, to build up a relationship with her. Making your own sacred site is doing just that, reminding yourself every day of all the gifts your Great Mother is giving you. Making your life sacred again, will inherently reconnect you to the Sacred Circle of Life. This is the key to changing our life today.
The world is changing brothers and sisters and we need to be ready to bring forth our gifts, our passions. We must be ready to be the strongest of the strong and leave behind the old in order to bring forth the new. I am committed to doing all I can and I hope you will join me in the powerful experience of Shamanic Journey or one of the other workshops to discover just how powerful you are and what a magnificent purpose you have here on this planet.
And….My second book is about to be printed! I will let you know as soon as it is available!
I love you dearest Tribe,
