Rainbow Around the Sun

Rainbow Around the Sun

     While meteorologists have a physical understanding of the circular rainbow around the sun, wisdom keepers of the Americas and Tibet have like understandings about this dramatic omen.

     For some traditional native people, the Sunbow or Whirling Rainbow is considered to be a sign from the Creator, marking a time of great change, or transition on the Earth.


                “The Whirling Rainbow  Prophecy” - Native American

     There will come a day when people of all races, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth. Peace, understanding and healing will grow. Many creatures thought to be extinct will resurface, the great trees that perished will return. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of  Mother Earth.  We will learn to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals as the Creator intended; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued; their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called ,The People. 



May we awaken to what we know:

to expanding our spiritual awareness and gratitude,

and to deepen our connection and compassion.


Blessed are we when we begin to see:

a new way of understanding,

a new way to live on this Earth,

that the flow of  “Knowing”

becomes an ocean, shared by All.
