Hopi Elder’s Prophecy

January 30, 2014

About a year ago, I was made aware of this prophecy. It has been living in me ever since, slowly gaining a strong hold. It simply won’t let go. There are a few phrases that I speak more than others. I wonder which phrases come alive for you. In any case, I am coming to believe that this short text holds more wisdom for our time than any other I have seen in a while. Here it is.

Hopi Elders’ Prophecy Oraibi, Arizona, June 8, 2000

You have been telling people that this is the Eleventh Hour, now you
must go back and tell the people that this is the Hour. And there are
things to be considered. . . .

  • Where are you living?
  • What are you doing?
  • What are your relationships?
  • Are you in right relation?
  • Where is your water?
  • Know your garden.
- It is time to speak your truth.
  • Create your community.
  • Be good to each other.
  • And do not look outside yourself for your leader.

Then he clasped his hands together, smiled, and said, “This could be a
good time! There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and
swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on
to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer
greatly. Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let
go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes
open, and our heads above the water.

And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in
history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For
the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
 Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All
that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

‘Just found your blog alà a comment you left on Esther Emery’s. ‘Glad to be here and glad to be introduced to this prophecy, appreciate hearing how it’s found a home in you. Thank you for sharing. I appreciate the structure of the prophecy—the reliance on questions stands as a mark of wisdom. And the call to go with the flow, to keep one’s eyes open and celebrate, even in the flood. This resonates with me. My husband and I saw the stage musical Cabaret last night. It portrays a time of celebration as flood waters rise—but people are dancing while fast asleep to what is going on around and within them. The Hopi elder calls for a different level of awareness and joyous acceptance.
