World Peace and Prayer Day / Honouring Sacred Sites Day “All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer” Following the birth of a White Buffalo Calf in 1994, the 19th Generation Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Dakota & Nakota Nations— Chief Arvol Looking Horse, was directed to honour the Four Directions with ceremony on Summer Solstice/June 21st. According to Lakota prophecy, the birth of “Miracle,” a female white buffalo, signalled a time of Earth changes and the coming of The Mending of the Hoop of all Nations. The Summer Solstice is said to be a powerful time to pray for peace and harmony among all Living Beings. Chief Looking Horse believes that this day of collective prayer will create an energy shift to heal the earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward obtaining peace. He believes that it is time all people understand Mother Earth is the Source of life, not a resource. WPPD has been held in the US, Costa Rica, Ireland, S Africa, Australia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, and Brazil. June 21st, 2017 will mark the 22nd year of World Peace and Prayer Day / Honouring Sacred Sites Day and will be held in the Hawaiian Islands and sacred sites around the world.

Giant Hog Weed growing from the bank by the Canal. These are very poisonous, so if you see one DO NOT touch it. They grow over 6ft tall and tower over their 4-5 ft relatives.
Watching these plants made me see the beauty inside even the most feared, that they hold lightness, and it reaffirmed to me that ALL life is Sacred!
They made me smile and feel joyous inside as they waved their arm in the air, ‘like they just don’t care’. Dancing and rejoicing this thing called life, their fall from grace as winter strips them of their bounty, yet still rejoicing as they dance with their relatives in the waters of life.
Arms stretched high, caressing the wind as she carries their song to up to creator. While they bounce along to the rhythm of their beat, connected to our mother and to father sun.
What a beautiful sight it was to see, we stood and watched for a good while before heading on our way, with a little song in my heart and a new beat in my feet.
My heart is breaking, it’s left me deplete,
Deplete of sleep,
We can no longer reach,
Deplete of fear,
Deplete of pain,
Devoid of faith or hope ever again.
Humanity is deplete,
Time to hit Delete,
Deplete is our Mother.
of her Creations
that we reap,
Lets start a new elite,
A race of human where all are rich,
Rich in love
My dear friend Sue wrote this today and its as if she wrote what is in my heart, wish I could express myself so well. So, I had to share it here with you all as i know it will resonate with some here also. ❤

I live in my own world. I’m not delusional, I’m not an escapist, I’m a radical realist. I have chosen to reject society at large because it doesn’t resonate with my values. I am a sovereign being and I claim my right to live in a world of my own creation. I am happy to share my world with others or live in a world with a population of one. I am government, police, church and healer in my self governed principality. I respect all other worlds and I visit the ones that are beautiful, kind and just. I do not seek to change the world of others. I don’t need a passport and don’t demand one from others who want to visit me in the sacred here and now of my kingdom.
I recognise the interconnected nature of our worlds within worlds here on Mother Earth. But what I do not recognise and completely reject is the man made idea that there needs to be an authority that governs all our 7 billion worlds. I do not accept any authority that seeks to impose its values and laws upon me. I AM a sacred co-creator, I AM a child of the Universe. I AM an aspect of Source.
To be Authentic is to be Transparent.
Start with self the rest will be easy.
