Hopi Call For Prayer June 9/10, 2018
If you are familiar with the Hopi people, then you know they are a very unique indigenous society that lives in Northern Arizona. They hold Ceremonies each month that are very complex and beautiful in which the entire community takes part. These Ceremonies have been followed for thousands of years and are still being done today. Every person in the community has a roll to play in order for the Ceremony to be made possible.
Each Ceremony is for the purpose of bringing life giving water to their crops, and for the worlds crops to grow. They pray for peace and balance in nature, not only for themselves, but for all life on earth and beyond.
On June 9th and 10th, a beautiful Ceremony will be taking place in which the Kachina’s will dance in the plaza, supported by the community watching and sending them the energy needed to unfold the prayers into manifesting water, rain, clouds, peace, honor, respect, balance of all life. (A general idea of what a Kachina is but this article is not all correct. It will however give you a quick overview. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kachina )
This particular dance is being ‘sponsored’ by a couple who live in the village. (A family or individule must sponsor a dance before it can be held. They take responsibility for the community during this time and will feed the whole community, as one example of their responsibilities. They will invite visitors to the dance/Ceremony into their home to sit at their table and share their Ceremonial food. This is a form of feeding the world and sharing not only the food but the energy of openness, generosity, caring, respect, faith and balancing the world and universe itself.
The woman who is hosting this Ceremony/dance on June 9th and 10th, has asked everyone to join their prayers to Hopi for these two full days. In fact, you can begin sending prayers to the Hopi now to give them strength as they call for rain, for life, for balance, for peace.
In your prayers and meditations, think of a beautiful world and all that it holds in balance. Send those good thoughts to Hopi as they dance in the blazing sun for two full days. Send them strength and ask the clouds and rain to come to them and nourish them. The Hopi dance for US, each one of us. They dance for the world, humanity, the birds, the trees, the plants, the animals, the insects, the fish, the rain, the oceans, the earth, the universe, the masculine, the feminine. They dance for ALL LIFE.
Let us all honor their Sacred Dance by committing to sending our prayers to them. By doing this, we join the energy of their prayers with ours and the energy will travel around the world with strength, with light and with honor for all life.
From the woman who is hosting this dance, she would like to say; Asquali. (Thank you!) May we all have good things on our path.
Create a prayer circle with your friends and groups and join in bringing balance to life.
