From the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers:

“You Are Desperately Needed”

“We ask you to cast, anchor, and hold the Net of Light steady for
the Gulf of Mexico,” the Grandmothers said. “This crisis is
affecting the entire world, and humanity is asleep. Wake up!” they
cried. “Animals are dying, plants are dying, and your Mother is
writhing in agony. If you hold the Net of Light steady at this time
you will help stave off further catastrophe.

“You have been lulled into a false sleep,” they said, “told that
others (B.P.) will take care of this problem. This is not so,” they
said. “And this is not the time for you to fall into oblivion.
Determine now to stay awake, and once you have made that commitment,
think of, cast, and hold the Net of Light. Hold it deep and hold it
wide. Amplify its reach to penetrate the waters of the Gulf and dive
deep beneath the crust of Mother Earth. Anchor it at the earth’s
core and as you hold it there, ask it to unify with the mineral
kingdom of this planet. It will do this and will harmonize with all
the solid and liquid mineral states on earth-including oil and gas.
The Net of Light will call these minerals back into harmony.

“Whatever human beings have damaged, human beings must correct,” the
Grandmothers said. “This is the law. We repeat: This is the law. You
cannot sit back and ask God to fix the mess humanity has created.
Each of you must throw your shoulders to the wheel and work. We are
asking for your help. Several years ago we gave you the Net of Light
so you would be able to help the earth at times like this. Step
forward now. This is the Net of Light that will hold the earth
during the times of change that are upon you,” they said.

“First move into your heart and call on us. We will meet you there.
The Net of Light is lit by the jewel of your heart,” they said, “so
move into this lighted place within you and open to the Net of which
you are a part. Bask in its calming presence. It holds you at the
same time that you hold it.

“Now think of magnifying your union with us. We, the Great Council
of the Grandmothers, are with you now, and all those who work with
the Net of Light are also with you. There are thousands, even
millions now connected in light,” they said. “Along with this union,
call forth the power of the sacred places on earth. These will
amplify the potency of our joint effort. Then call on the sacred
beings that have come to prevent the catastrophe that threatens to
overwhelm your planet. We will work together,” they said, nodding

“Think of, cast and magnify the presence of the Net of Light in the
Gulf of Mexico. See, imagine or think of it holding the waters,
holding the land, the plants, the sea life, and the people. Holding
them all!” they said. “The Net of Light is holding them steady; it
is returning them to balance. Let the love within your lighted heart
keep pouring into the Net of Light and hold, hold, hold. Calmly and
reverently watch as the light from your heart flows along the
strands of the Net. It will follow your command and continuously
move forth. As soon as you think of it, it will happen. We ask you
to practice this for only a few minutes at a time, but to repeat it
throughout the day and night.

“We promise that this work with the Net of Light will do untold good,”
the Grandmothers said. “We are calling you to service now. You are needed.
Do not miss this opportunity. We thank you and bless you.”

The Indigenous Grandmothers

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.
