The Purification

The Great Purification

Emergence to the Fifth World “The end of all Hopi ceremonialism will come when a Kachina removes his mask during a dance in the plaza before uninitiated children. For a while there will be no more ceremonies, no more faith. Then Oraibi (Hopi village in Arizona) will be rejuvenated with its faith and ceremonies, marking the start of a new cycle of Hopi life.” The Hopi believe there are Nine Worlds. We are currently in the transition between the Fourth and Fifth World. Below is from this prophecy, also known as the Great Purification. “World War III will be started by those peoples who first revealed the light (the divine wisdom or intelligence) in the other old countries (India, China, Islamic Nations, Africa). The United States (Turtle Island) will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an […]

Heyóka

Heyóka

There are some conflicting descriptions of what Heyóka are yet even these hold many similarities. Some tradition says a Heyóka is a trickster spirit, a contrarian, jester, satirist or sacred clown. The Heyóka spirit speaks, moves and reacts in an opposite fashion to the people around it. In Lakota mythology, Heyóka is also a spirit of thunder and lightning. He is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder. Other tradition says they are Indigo Children. A trait common to both is the backwards way of doing things as well as the visions/dreams and contrarian traits. The trait of thunder and lightning associated with Heyóka legend can be seen as more figurative than literal. Becoming Heyóka is like being born again (if you weren’t born Heyóka). This awakening is like being struck by lightning. The thunder can be viewed as the waves they make in the world by going against […]

The Blue Light

This is the story of an experience a friend and I had on June 14th, 2014. Obviously you can choose to believe the following or not. My job isn’t to convince anyone, only to pass it along in hopes that someone may have an answer. We know it happened the way I am going to relate it to you so convincing others is of no importance to us. I will leave out details from earlier in the evening that may or may not be relevant. I will however lay out the basic information to give you an idea of what led up to this experience. We were at La Posada in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Jocelyn had never been there so I simply figured she should see the place. Anyone who knows anything about La Posada will tell you it is a highly active space when it comes to the […]

Conquistadors

The Return

My journey from the Netherlands was a long and arduous one. A process that began on what seemed like a whim well over three months ago and is still not yet complete. In retrospect though, it had actually began many long years ago in the deserts of Arizona. A journey that has, in fact, taken me full circle with a string of events that are continuing to unfold and play themselves out. A destiny of sorts that has now placed me in the high desert of New Mexico, known as the Four Corners Region of the Untied States. As my career came to a close and I neared retirement, so did my desire to not do any more globe trotting. When asked by my IBM colleagues in Amsterdam—where I had been living comfortably for the last 5 years—where I  was planning to retire, my response was always “In Spain, where else?” […]

Hopi Prophecy – the Blue Star Kachina

Hopi Elders for thousands of years have passed on many warnings of their ancient prophecies from generation to generation. Through their oral tradition and by referencing the ancient rock pictographs on the Hopi mesa, there are photographic tablets that tell the stories left by their forefathers. The Hopi Blue Star Kachina Prophecy In the ancient Native American Hopi prophecy it states, “When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge into view.” The day is referred to by the Hopi as “the Day of Purification.” Today we call this blue star Sirius (for the Greeks, to the Hopi it is the Blue Star Kachina). Their prophecy predicts that it will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina finally dances in the plaza, after which it will remove its mask to reveal an enlightenment of our forefathers. Some have even speculated and according to the Ancient Alien Theory […]
