Global Grandmothers’ Council Network 2020
Cross Cultural Wisdom keeper Dr.Angeles Arriene
shared this Universal prayer:
“Let us take care of the youth, our children
For these have a long way to go
Let us take care of the Elders
For they have come a long way
And let us take care of those in between
For they are doing the work.”
“The Old Ones say the Native American women will lead the healing among the tribes. Inside them are the powers of love and strength given by the Moon and the Earth. When everyone else gives up, it is the women who sings the songs of strength. She is the backbone of the people. So, to our women we say, sing your songs of strength; pray for your special powers; keep our people strong; be respectful, gentle, and modest.” Village Wise Man, Lakota
“Prayer is not an old woman’s idle amusement.
Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action” – Mahatma Gandhi
Suzanne here, this editorial I wrote in 2014. Grandmother Flordemayo shared with me that the Original 13 International Grandmothers was a closed group. Grandmother councils have spiraled out around the globe as a result. I feel that a call is being heard globally, similar to the call that brought the original 13 International Grandmothers. We have formed Global Grandmothers’ Council Network 2020 Suzanne Lewis
All over this sweet Earth and throughout time, caring peoples have created stone circles. Sometimes this circle is called a Medicine Wheel, the Great Wheel of Life, a labyrinth and to today still an active energetic presence for land based, cross-cultural peoples Unlike Westerners who are dependent on emails, telephones and written proof; Indigenous people have a deep knowing that the circles are a web as well; an inter-connected ” telegraph like vibrational communication system”.
People who trust and love the sacred circle, know their petitioning’s, intentions, prayers are sent out through invisible energetic waves to others. All over the Earth and beyond these waves are felt and responded to with encouragement and support. Without any doubt or proof, those who use the Circle as a universal amplification/resonance tool do so with deep, simple trust.
Sometimes this is called the original network.
Because of the dire, destructive, horrific conditions of our Families, our CHILDREN, our sweet MOTHER EARTH, the status of our US government and policies: we must immediately become a fierce force for the voiceless and disrespected and harmed.
Suzanne here, it is going to take a global village of wise elders, establishing their Grandmother’s Council/clan/family/element advocates and then acting as a mediator, an active channel receiving the global network’s calls and prayers, and then relaying it back to their tribe.
We are creating a Global Network via the web.
Parts of the prophecy I have learned for this very time period are in the way of the “circle.” A time which demands that people from all cultures, colors, religions come together, honoring our cross-cultural diversity and be able to respect and communicate with one another. It’s the prophetic song that sings through my deep soul. It’s the message I received through the Creator as I regained my health and capacity to live. The call for Circles appears everywhere I look and listen. Once we circle, we must promise to “walk a mile in each other moccasins/feet” so we can be compassionate of each and other’s complexions, history.
