A prayer for our waters

For those of you who pray or meditate on how to help the planet, specifically the Gulf Coast, The Council of Indigenous Grandmothers* has sent the following request (emphases mine):

Grandmothers at Mago Retreat

We ask you to cast, anchor, and hold the Net of Light steady for the Gulf
of Mexico . This crisis is affecting the entire world, and humanity is
asleep. Wake up! 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, told that others (eg BP) will take care of this problem.

This is not so. 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. 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.

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, 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. 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.

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! 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. We are
calling you to service now. You are needed. Do not miss this opportunity.

We thank you and bless you.

*On October 11, 2004, 13 Indigenous Grandmothers from all over the world—the Alaskan Tundra, North, South and Central America, Africa, and Asia—arrived at Tibet House’s Menla Mountain Retreat amidst 340 acres of forests, fields and streams in upstate New York. Within a few days of convening, the grandmothers agreed to form a global alliance; to work together to serve both their common goals and their specific local concerns.

The first council gathering was a time of hope and inspiration. The grandmothers are both women of prayer and women of action. Their traditional ways link them with the forces of the earth. Their solidarity with one another creates a web to rebalance the injustices wrought from an imbalanced world; a world disconnected from the fundamental laws of nature and the original teachings based on a respect for all of life.
