I have been involved in environmental issues most of my adult life because of my love for our Earth
Mother. There have been times in my dialogue with Sacred Mother that I have been shown the
changes coming. A part of me didn't want to believe that invisible forces and humankind were
capable of such violence and destruction. And yet, I could not deny what I was seeing. I am very
sensitive to energy changes, sometimes with physical manifestations of what is happening to our Earth
Mother. There have been many Elders of many Nations who have foretold the coming Earth changes
and how we are to get through them. I can understand why no one wants to hear about getting
through those changes, but one must remember, pain always precedes birthing. All things evolve, all
things change and the Earth changes coming are not the end of all as we perceive it in the usual sense.
It will be painful to watch our Earth Mother and Her children as she struggles in Her renewal, it will
be difficult for the masses to endure the time of those changes, (and many won't), but just as we are
trying to get somewhere in our consciousness, so is our Earth Mother. It is coming time for Her to
raise Her consciousness, and there must be Purification, before there can be Renewal. All the
changes coming are the results of the root problem of what we have created with our thoughts and
actions. It is time for the Purification of our thoughts, so that they will bring about Right Action,
Healing, Peace and Harmony in the spirit of Love toward all living beings and help our Earth Mother
and relations through this transition. And that is what it is, transition, not the end of the world.
For those who do not have a foundation of Peace in Heart and Mind, or know how to live with the
Earth Mother and all Her children in a spiritual way, one of Peace, Harmony and Love, will not have
an easy time with the coming changes. All things have a spirit. All things are related, connected. What
affects our Earth Mother, affects all living things because we are of Her Mind, Heart and Body. The
same Life Force, Life Giving Energy that flows through Her and is Her, flows through all living things,
making us relatives. We are all made of the same 'stuff.' The Great Purification is coming, it is
already here, and just as a woman's labor pains increase in intensity and frequency in the birthing
process, so it is with our Earth Mother. She is birthing a new, but ancient Consciousness, one of
Love, Peace and Harmony between all living things. Balance.
Living here, in these beautiful mountains sometimes one can feel apart and removed from the hustle,
bustle, and flow of man-made life, and everything unnatural. When my Ancient Mother planted my
feet here, and their roots ran so deep into the Earth Mother, there was no thought of possibly leaving.
I fell in love with this area and I resonated with its vibration.
There are few places one can go anymore for peaceful and quiet reflections in the solitude of a
wilderness. And perhaps in my innocence, tucked away in one of the most scenic and environmentally
pure areas of the United States, the beautiful Ozark Mountains, I always thought we would be
untouched by the same destructive environmental practices going on in other parts of the country. But
our world, and area as we now know it, is rapidly changing.
We knew there was going to be a tremendous amount of gas drilling in our beloved Ozarks. But we
were unprepared in mind and heart for the destruction that this industry has brought. We hoped
something would stop it, but it kept coming, growing and devouring all growing and living things in its
path and very few came to help. The politicians are in bed with the gas industry. There is no one here
who cares to listen. It has been tried by many people who are concerned with what is happening
here. Our waters are being polluted - our drinking water source is in the worst shape it has been in
since the lake's existence. It is a known fact that the fracking fluids used to drill these wells are highly
toxic and carcinogenic. We are having earthquakes on a fairly regular basis - yet the 'powers that be'
still insist it isn't because of the drilling, when it is a known geological fact that drilling causes
earthquakes. We never had this many earthquakes until the drilling started in our area. The area is
being destroyed and trashed by an industry that cares not for the environment or the well being of the
people. Arkansas is no longer the beautiful 'Natural State,' but one in distress and showing the signs
of irreversible environmental damage. There is no way of stopping the destruction caused by this
greedy and selfish industry. When technology becomes a tool used for weapons of war, or
destroying the Earth Mother and Her children motivated by greed, control and dominance over a
people and every living thing, it creates dis-harmony and hinders the evolution and progression of all
species to the right to spiritually mature in a place conducive to grow in a healthy, safe environment.
The Earth was created as a place for all species, to grow and progress into the likeness of the Great
Mother and the Great Father. Our Mother, the Earth, is the manifestation of a Great Spiritual Being
as a place for humankind to learn to Love, and interact with all beings in Peace, Love, and Respect,
perfecting our consciousness as the pure consciousness of our Parents of Great Light.
So, what do we do? We choose not to react in a way that would create and add dis-harmony to this
already chaotic stream of thought blanketing the Earth Mother, sent out in waves to our Sister and
Brother Planetary Beings. Let us not add to the confusion and disruption of the energy of Peace and
Harmony. This is why it is so important to create thoughts that will promote the well being of all. This
is not something I am asking one to do that I am not doing myself. And it is unbelievably difficult when
one is faced with this destruction only miles from one's living space on an everyday basis. This is hard
to do. I have a relationship with every living being in these incredible Ozark Mountains. I know the
Trees that stand like Peaceful Ancient Beings teaching us how to send our roots into the Earth Mother
and bring up Her energy through our branches to share with the Sky World. I know the Mother of
the Waters and every little creek and the magnificent Stone People who reside on and in the Mother's
great breast of life. I know the Herb and Plant Beings that so generously share their medicine with us
and the wildlife that plays with me during my outdoor moving meditation for the benefit of all. My
relationship with the Great Beings in our area is one of Peace, Love, Respect and Harmony. And it
is with heartbreaking observance that I watch as the greed that has overtaken our area and the planet
destroys the life in its path.
We will need to be strong and steady in our emotions, and holding thought forms of Peace and
Harmony for all our Brothers and Sisters in preparation for the coming Earth changes, and heal the
spirits of the life that dwell within and around these sacred Mountains and all of our Mother the Earth
and the Planetary Family. These changes are here. We must watch, listen and keep ourselves
centered, focused on our purpose, holding form of Peace, manifesting the Great Peace in our hearts
and minds and through our actions. In this way, we can help our Mother, the Earth and Her children
in Her progression and helping Her through this time of Change. So, let us send healing to the drilling
sites, and all the places on our Mother, the Earth that are hurting, before they cut down all the
Standing People, move the Earth, and put up their monstrosities and monuments of pollution. Let us
offer prayers of Love, Blessing, Peace, Healing, Remembrance to all life and bless them. Let us also
include all beings in those blessings, for we are all related and the blessing includes that ALL beings
will manifest peace in their hearts and live in harmony, peace and love for one another once again,
restoring to balance. That is the thought form we must hold, envision. We can do more for our
Sacred Mother, Great Father, Brothers and Sisters in this way. After the Great Purification, there will
be Peace, Balance and Harmony once again. And in that perfect balance, there lives Love. The Earth
and all Her children will flourish and live with each other in the Right and Beautiful way.
