Times will come when our planet will be devastated, resources will be exhausted, the seas will turn black, all rivers will be poisoned, and animals will fall dead on the trails. While there is still time to avoid it, the mysterious Rainbow Warriors will appear to teach humanity to treat Mother Earth with respect.
There are many ancient predictions about the future. The Rainbow Prophesy from American Indians offers an interesting perspective. American Indians have always worshiped the rainbow. The Cree, Hopi and Sioux Indians talk about powerful Rainbow Warriors that will appear on our planet to preserve its future.
Many variations of this prophesy exist, but the original text says that the dead souls of the first people in the bodies of all colors: red, white, yellow and black will return. United as the colors of the rainbow, they will teach humanity how to live in harmony with the surrounding world and nature.
There are some controversial moments in the history of this prediction. Wikipedia represents the fact of the legend’s origin from the book “Warriors of the Rainbow, 1962. However, one of the book authors acknowledged that his research was based on the Hopi prophecies.
The reality is much more complicated, and proves that the prophecy is ancient and was passed on orally from generation to generation for centuries. This prophecy is very similar to a prediction of a New Era. References to it can be found in the legends and sagas from around the world. “Satya Yuga”, “Gullaldr” and a lot more from different cultures. The common aspect of these legends is a preceding crisis period and the appearance of beings who will help in restoring our planet.
Armed with hope for the brighter future described in the Prophesy, people created the Rainbow Gathering. It originated in the United States in the early 1970s.
Since the early eighties, this movement has spread throughout the world and has absorbed the traditions of various ethnic groups. The first European Rainbow Gathering took place in 1983. Since then, they were held annually in the middle of summer, in different countries. Rainbow Gatherings have no organizational structure, these annual meetings are a personal initiative of a large number of people.
Information on such meetings is transmitted through personal communication and through the distribution of information leaflets, and since the beginning of the nineties - through the Internet. These meetings are completely non-commercial, they do not pursue any political goals and are not used to promote any religious beliefs.
Anyone can attend a Rainbow Gathering. Rules of the Rainbow are not regulated, but there are traditions to exclude the use of alcohol, drugs and weapons, as well as the use of chemicals that can harm the environment. All global decisions of the Rainbow Family are made unanimously by the Vision Council, which everyone can attend.
Regardless of whether the legend is true, the period of violence and greed is the modern world’s reality. Poverty, injustice, and careless attitude towards nature unfortunately became the main traits of our civilization. Let’s believe that preserved ancient wisdom will help all nations return to harmony with nature, becoming the "key to our survival."
“Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it.” Bruce Lipton
