Lava Flow Report from the Big Island
Nov. 15, 2014
From the GUARDIANS OF THE BIG ISLAND:
If it is for the Greatest Good of All . . .
We invite you to hold this Vision and pass it on to everyone you know who understands the Unity of All Life, the Sacredness of Nature and the Power of the Goddess.
Pele is angry. The lack of respect that has been shown for her Sacred Mauna Kea has caused her to go into a rage. Most people in the world today do not believe in the Goddess; the scientists and corporations and members of the military who are impinging on Mauna Kea do not comprehend the Sacredness of the Aina, the Land, the Mother.
There is a long history of corporations disregarding the sacred places and practices of indigenous people. Can you imagine the outrage that would go up throughout the world if a group of powerful people desecrated the Vatican? What is being done to Mauna Kea is comparable to that, in the minds and hearts of the indigenous Hawaiian people and those who love the Aina and want to preserve the sacredness of their most precious and beloved mountain.
Many of you will remember the story of the priest in the village on the Big Island whose church was in the path of the lava. He prayed to God repeatedly, but there was no change. Finally, at the last minute, he set out an offering to Pele in front of his church. The lava stopped in front of the altar.
We can create a continuous altar of love on the Pahoa side of the highway and grace it with the dances and chants of Pele, especially on Saturday and Sunday, November 15 and16.
If even just one human being will step forward and take responsibility for the lack of respect -- if even just one human being will deeply and sincerely apologize to the Goddess and to the indigenous people of this land and of all lands, in the manner of Ho'oponopono: "I'm sorry. Please forgive me. I love you. Thank you." That can make a difference.
If whole groups of people do this, combined with chanting and dancing, in public and in private, all over the world, it is sure to make a difference.
Many of you will remember the story from Warriors of the Night Rainbow, about how the warriors approached the Island of Moloka’i and the Elders kept the warriors off the island by chanting. We who live on these islands understand the power of chant and dance and the power of love and prayer. We can work in Union with Pele. We can change our fear into love. We Are Powerful.
You Are Powerful. Your Love and Your Faith Are Amazing. It is time for the Goddess to return. You can help to bring her back. We don’t need to be attached to results. Whatever is meant to happen will happen. Your caring and your heartfelt participation will help to shift the energies.
"The most appropriate offering that any person can make can be made without any tangible item being left behind. The most perfect offering is one's aloha, ha, and olelo. To love a place, and breathe out that love in the form of a spoken promise to cherish and protect it, that is the most perfect offering." (quote from Ka'ahele Hawaii)
Ho’oponopono for Pele (the Hawaiian Goddess of the Volcano)
Revered Goddess, I humbly ask permission to approach you today. Please let me introduce myself. I am Joy Gardner. I was born in Chicago, Illinois, as Joyce Carol Chadwick, daughter of Miriam Strauss and Scott Chadwick who was born as Stanley Kozhitsky. My mother Miriam was born in Radonsyn, Poland, of Ruchel Spellman and Chaim Strauss, who was a Rabbi and a Cantor. My father, Scott, was born in Chicago of Marija and Walter Kozicki, who were both from Poland.
Some of my teachers and mentors were Raylene Lancaster, my Kumu Hula, and Thomas Banyacya, Interpreter for the Hopi Nation and David Monongye, from the Hopi Snake Clan. I have lived in Hawaii for 15 years.
I come to you today to humbly ask forgiveness for the lack of respect that has occurred on this Aina, this land, and on your sacred mountain, Mauna Kea, and toward the indigenous people of Hawaii. I ask forgiveness for the long history of disrespect that my people have shown toward indigenous people and toward Nature and toward women throughout his-story.
TODAY IN PAHOA - At 5 pm today, Saturday, November 15, 2014, we will meet on the Pahoa side of the highway, to do Ho'oponopono for Pele. Please join us in body or in spirit.
Yesterday evening a small international group of people went to Pahoa, to pay our respects to Pele. We found a nice grassy area, alongside of the Montessori School, near the Catholic Church. (We would have asked permission, but no one was there.) We sat in a circle, brought in the White Light, chanted E-Ho-Mai, and then each of us introduced ourselves to Pele, going through our lineage, and then speaking our hearts to Pele and to the original people of this island and those of all places, and finally doing Ho'oponopono, taking responsibility and sending love.
We all felt Pele's presence strongly. We brought in the pink light and sent her lots of love, and then realized that people are often afraid of strong women. It felt like Pele soaked up all that good energy with great pleasure. Then we all held hands and closed the circle, sending up a spontaneous toning of love for the Goddess. We all left feeling very full and happy with what we had experienced. Thanks to all of you who shared with us in Spirit.
Here's the news report on the lava flow for the Big Island of Hawaii for November 17, with the same continuing into today.
ONE OF THE SLOWEST DAYS SO FAR ... JUST A LOT OF BLACK LAVA... COOLED OVER. FOR MILES AND MILES. NO ACTIVITY TODAY AT THE FLOW FRONT.... NOT EVEN BURNING REPORTED TODAY IN THE FLOW NEAR PAHOA TOWN. BIG ISLAND CIVIL DEFENSE ADMINSTRATOR DARYL OLIVEIRA SAYS ITS BEEN A "REAL QUIET" DAY OVER THE WEEKEND THEY STARTED SEEING A SLOWDOWN IN THE ADVANCEMENT RATE AND ACTIVITY ALONG THE EDGES OF THE FLOW. THE NEAREST ACTIVITY TODAY IS ABOUT 6 MILES ABOVE APAA STREET.... THERE WAS NO ACTIVITY ALONG THE MARGINS OR EDGES. - AS OF NOW THE TRANSFER STATION IS "SAFE". BUT TAKE A LOOK AT THE BUILD UP OF THE LAVA AS NEW ACTIVITY FLOWS ONTO JUST COOLED LAVA. NOTICE HOW HIGH THE LAVA IS NOW STACKED UP AT THAT TRANSFER STATION FENCE?
Notice that The Pahoa Recycling and Transfer Stationhas been dramatically protected, which I see as the most beautiful tribute that the Goddess could possibly give to the enlightened people of Pahoa who created a world-class Center for the treatment of their refuse, which in turn protects the land. The lava made an absolutely deliberate detour around all of those buildings (this happened just before our ritual, which made me feel more confident that Pele really cared and would listen to us), and then piled up in front of the fence around the Treatment Center -- as if an iron fence could stop the lava! Clearly this was a sign from Pele that she appreciates when people respect the Aina.
I hope that people will begin to realize that our Goddess is alive and well and conscious and loving and the only thing that brings out her rage is when people are disrespectful of one another and of the Aina (the Land) and of her sacred places. In the future, even if you're not sure that it's gonna work, don't underestimate the power of your love, your caring. "If two or more are gathered in my name . . ." That is, in the name of that which is sacred.
I have seen such "miracles" happen over and over again. I saw it originally with the Hopi Indians who danced for rain back in 1967. I'm sure you have seen similar things. But rationally-minded people tend to deny these "miracles" because it would upset their paradigm and they would have to rethink everything they believe in. But
Nature DOES listen to us and she DOES respond to us. When we refuse to acknowledge that, then we diminish ourselves and we belittle our Mother and our relationship with her.
We Are So Blessed
