May 18th, 2010, has been declared an international day of prayer for the earth’s water. This is led by the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers – perhaps our most esteemed and wise council on the earth today. They give me hope, and they strengthen my resolve to continue to reach out to all people I can with a similar message of peace and non-destruction. Their self description from their website is:
WE, THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF THIRTEEN INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS, represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come. We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future. We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.
Let us do all we can to support these beautiful, wise women in their quest for a safer, more harmonious world, one that will remain for the next seven generations (and beyond).
I am posting the description of the day of water blessings here in its entirety, as follows:
We, the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers Ask you to join us:
MAY 18, 2010
CONSCIOUS PARTICIPATION IN HEALING OUR PLANETARY WATERS
OUR MOTHER EARTH NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Along with many peoples all around the globe, and many water prayers this spring, we are calling for a
MASSIVE GLOBAL EFFORT
Our main intention for this healing is to return the waters to their original pure crystalline blueprint, and to add to their abundance for the nourishment of ALL living things on the planet.
Pray in your local waterways, at the rivers or lakes or streams. Or pray with a bowl of water in the middle of the cities.
“We are Water Babies. Do not to forget to say thank you every day for the water you drink, the water you bathe in.
Without our Mother water we would not survive.”
