As cultures across our Sacred Earth, we have all conquered and been conquered. 

Yet, we are one people sharing this glorious planet. 

These times are the ones of Great Healing - beyond Separation, Imbalance, Injustice & Materialism

- to living as One Humanity.

The Original Peoples of every region of our Sacred Earth

have been treated in horrific ways: massacred or poisoned, lands stolen, treaties broken, forced to attend

reservation schools, women abducted

and abused, or worse.

The sad truth is that much of this is still continuing

today in an ongoing clash of worldviews

and dearth of wisdom and compassion.

 

In some parts of the world such as Europe, most people

don't remember who the Original Peoples are. However,

the Ancestors are still there on the Spirit Planes.

As part of our Healing, those of us from the dominant

global culture are being called to Apologize ...

And we are also being asked to speak for our Ancestors

for all they have perpetrated from their place

of deep soul-woundedness ...

to Apologize for their actions also.

We are being called to forgive ourselves too,

as we forgive our Ancestors ...

And to Change Our Ways.

"I ask you to look within and ask who you are, what you are doing here and what was here before you. Only then will you be able to forgive yourselves for what you and your ancestors have done. After that, you will be guided to do the right and honorable thing by the indigenous peoples, and we will

all find healing together."

Some Simple Suggestions for How to Join in Ceremony on Sunday, March 19th

Koguis_Tribeswoman_with_Child.jpg

• Research who were/are the Original Peoples where you live - regardless of your continent. The Ancestors are still there on the Spirit Plane if the Original Peoples no longer live there. Or focus on Original Peoples from another region. Learn as much about them as possible. Or... you could make a Global Apology to all the Original Peoples & their/our Ancestors.

• Gather in sacred circles or on your own.

• Light a candle.

• Write an Apology Letter on behalf of you and your ancestors from your heart.

• Burn the Letter, so your words and thoughts can go up into the spirit planes to be received by the Ancestors and their descendants.

• And/Or ... do Ho'oponopono (from the Native peoples of Hawaii):  "I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me/us. Thank you." Adding more details as you are called. 

• Drum ... Sing ... Chant ...

• Close ceremony & blow out candle.

• Apology Ceremonies could be more elaborate as guided, of course.

• (If your ancestry is mixed, please follow your guidance.)

The Native Ancestors guiding this Global Event have requested that if any events within this Unified Field will be asking for compensation, that those funds be donated to an Indigenous led group.

“... it is important to recognize the prophecies that apply to what is happening on Mother Earth today, with all the daunting challenges that we humans are facing.  The

many prophecies that I am aware of say that there will

come a time when the world will need Indigenous ways

and look towards Indigenous people for answers. 

That time is NOW.”

Some Next Steps to Pursue

After Your Apology Ceremony

~~~~~~~

  • Honor the ancestral lands where you live. This will be easier in some regions than with others. State this information on your website or email footer, or at any events in which you may be involved. Share with your friends & loved ones

  • Research the treaties between the Original Peoples of your region/state and your Federal Government or individual states/provinces - if any exist.

  • Purchase from Indigenous Owned Companies.

  • Reach out to tribes and reservations and ask the groups led by Native leaders what support they need. Listen to them with humble open hearts and honor their requests to the best of your capabilities. (Remember that they have been made many promises yet very few were kept.)

**Gaia Mystic and High Priestess Mare Cromwell, of the Great Mother Love Way, received the request to organize this world-wide Unified Field of ceremonies directly from an Indigenous Ancestor in Maryland in September, 2021. This was after she honored several local requests for Apology Ceremonies from Original Peoples' Ancestors in specific locations in Australia & Maryland, 2019 - 2021. 

Mare expresses her deepest, deepest Love and Gratitude to the Indigenous Elders in the physical along with the Ancestors on the Spirit Plane who have guided the creation of this Global Grid ... along with Mother Gaia and her councils.
