An Urgent Message From the Kogi and the 'Living Relic'

I am actually on a plane back to New York right now, returning from an extraordinary meeting in Ecuador. I was at Finca Sagrada, a biodynamic farming community an hour outside the town of Vilcamamba—down a long winding mountain pass into a bright green valley along the Inca trail, circled by a ring of sacred fire sites on the ridges all around.

The sacred sites of the indigenous peoples of the world form a network of spiritual communication around the globe. As these sacred sites are destroyed, and as the people who have cared for these sites are removed and assimilated, this communication network has been broken.

There we met with indigenous elders from the Four Tribes of Sierras of Colombia (known by many outsiders as the Kogi People), whose high priests, called Mamos, live in caves for up to 18 years, never seeing the light of day until they complete their training as seers. Through ceremonial consultation, they learn to speak directly to the Mother, who has instructed them to come down from the mountains and deliver the message that we are killing the Earth ... and we must all unite to stop the destruction that will end our existence.

Just before the People of La Sierra came to meet us, they took a "living relic" out into the light of day for the first time since the beginning of time. When they took her out, the Earth shook ... and then she delivered her urgent message that we are running out of time, and it is urgent that  they spread her message to the entire world. Then the Earth shook again as they put the living relic away, confirming her message. All of this was as it has been told in their prophecies and consultations with the Mother.

The message is this: The sacred sites of the indigenous peoples of the world form a network of spiritual communication around the globe. As these sacred sites are destroyed, and as the people who have cared for these sites are removed and assimilated, this communication network has been broken. The spiritual fabric of the Earth has been torn to shreds and the people who hold the ceremonies that keep the Earth in balance cannot correct things anymore. The non-native nations, who the Four Tribes of La Sierra call "little brother," are out of control and have gone too far. It is too late for us, as humans, to correct this on our own. If we do not re-activate the sacred sites and re-activate the higher beings who can help us restore order to the world, we will not be able to re-weave the spiritual fabric of the Earth. The mother is crying. She is weeping for her children. She is in pain, and will speak with her voice of wind, water and fire ... louder and louder ... unless we begin to speak for her and do what she is asking.

The Tribes of the Sierra have begun a unification process for the awareness of the life originating principles, called IKWASHENDWNA, which in two words is the urgent call to internal order the Mother makes to humanity. It is a call for all peoples to UNITE in the efforts to stop "little brother" in his plunder. We must also unite in our efforts to return the sacred sites to their original guardians, so that the proper ceremonies can be carried out and the activations can be completed. We must continue to march, to speak, to be active ourselves ... but without the help of the higher beings we are tilting at the windmills of destruction that we ourselves have created.

Luntana Nacoggí, one of the younger Mamos travelling internationally to deliver this message, wrote to me recently and said, "This process of Unification will generate a consciousness in regard to our Mother Earth. Our current level of awareness is deficient, and it is precipitating the end of life for both humans and the Earth. The clock is ticking on the stopwatch the Mother herself has activated, and we know that we only have a short time left to act. We must take advantage of this Unification process so that we can begin to cooperate following the principles of our "pre-ancient" rights for the protection of all life."

This is a message that the Kogi began to speak about 30 years ago, but the living relic conveyed an urgency that has reached fever pitch, and they have begun a mission to find those who still hold the original ceremonies and ritual knowledge to help re-activate sacred sites all over the globe.

So .... with all this being said we have begun a series of meetings with them and others to help in this mission for our existence ... On Sept. 13-14, we are planning a UNITY CONCERT in the Black Hills of South Dakota, which is known as the "Heart of Everything That Is" by the Lakota Nation. The concert/gathering will begin with a traditional sacred rite to clear away the pain of the past so that we can stand together—the black, red, white and yellow nations—for our Mother Earth. We are asking that the Black Hills be returned to the Great Sioux Nation, to their guardianship, so that the heart of our OWN nation, of America, can be re-activated. The feeling is that when the Black Hills are returned  that this will have a catalytic effect on the return of sacred sites all over the world. (Our contacts in DC and Obama himself has signaled that he is willing to meet with the Great Sioux Nation about the Black Hills, the first U.S. president willing to do so).

In their consultations, the tribes of La Sierra have been told that this time, beginning in September of this year, will be a watershed moment across the planet. The BLACK HILLS UNITY CONCERT is a crucial step of spiritually grounding this next wave of the climate movement and this MISSION FOR OUR EXISTENCE.

There is a lot to do in a very short amount of time, but it is wrapped in the prayers of our ancestors for the next seven generations.

The straw-headed bulbul doesn't look like much.

It's less than a foot in length, with subdued brown-and-gold plumage, a black beak and beady red eyes. If you saw one sitting on a branch in front of you, you might not give it a second glance.
