In the past three years I have been led spiritually to Colombia seven times now. My first journey was all about learning how people who claim to represent tribes and people must be researched and confirmed before dealing with them. They turned out to not be who they claimed to be.
My second journey was extremely fascinating as spirit led me to the people of La Sierra, the Mamos and Sagas, Indigenous of the region. For this journey, I was sitting in my living room back in Canada when all of a sudden it looked like smoke forming to my right. It took the shape of a man that then walked up to me. There he stood and I recognized him as being a Mamo because of how he dressed. For four days this would happen once a day, except each day there were more Mamos standing infront of me. Finally I went into a state where I could communicate with them and asked them did they have a message for me? The message was: “Come.” Two weeks later I received three emails from strangers telling me that I MUST go to the Kogui of Colombia. Well, within a short time after this all the details came together and I was gifted with the funds to travel, along with one other person to make the journey. It was amazing and the beginning of work to be done to bring about a deeper understanding of how we can support each other to protect life itself here on this earth.
Read more on that journey from a past post here.
Since then many journeys have been made and work has taken place to bring about that deeper dialogue. Here you can read where we traveled to New York and met with the Mamos and the Hopi.
In 2012 I took a journey to Colombia and as spirit would have it I was in the Mountains on Dec 21/2012. This was a powerful journey as well and also the Hopi were are that time in Ceremony. My prayer and thoughts were with the connections of the Sacred people all around the world.
From this journey a video was created; Unity consciousness is within you.
May of 2013 I found myself once again in Colombia but this trip was for personal reasons. I wanted to take some time out and rest, reflect, and slow myself down so I could center myself. It was a great blessing and have to thank Mr C… and Mr D for making that happen.
Very unexpectedly, I was offered the chance to meet some of the Kogui Mamos to continue to work with them and see how we can support each other in our paths for protecting life. With only days to have the funds come in I was unsure that the journey would take place but… once again the people came forward to give exactly what was needed. We are all very grateful for this gifting.
Lina and I, my friend and translator, traveled from Bogota to Santa Marta. Landing there was a shock to the system because of the intense heat and humidity compared to Bogota. We quickly left the airport in a taxi and found our way to the bus we needed to take us to where the Village of the Mamos is. When we got out of the taxi a man grabbed my bag and was quickly walking away. I tried to get him to stop but he would not. Finally I had to grab my bag and pull on it, finally, he stopped and let me get my jacket from the backpack. He was one of the men with the bus. Not easy when you dont speak spanish.
Once we arrived to the next location Lina began to talk to the man at the store close to the walking trail for the Village asking him for a place to stay. He offered his home because it was only for one night and then also suggested a little place just up the road that rented small cabins to people. We decided to check the place out down the road first. Upon arrival we decided it was perfect and really beautiful actually, we were well cared for.
We arranged for food to be brought up to the Kogui Village on pack mules the next day. So, the only thing we needed now was food for ourselves. We put our backpacks on and walked about 20-30 minutes to another area of this town we were in to find a restaurant of some kind. By this time it was dark and most places had no food left… sooo … when offered food we took what we could. It was this horrible hotdog with strange things on it… I was so grateful but really…. it was not what I expected at all. We each had a cold beer (better than soda in the heat) got some bottled water and a few snack foods for the next few days and off we went. Taking a motorcycle taxi to the place we booked for the night, backpacks on and me… only the second time in my life on a motorcycle was freaked out! hahahaha the driver was gentle with me and it was easy… I just held on and closed my eyes! (hope some of you are laughing imagining me with my eyes tightly shut!)
The next day came early, 5am we were awake and getting ready for the day with the Mamos. We were greeted at the entrance of the place where we stayed by a young Mamo and began to walk straight up the mountain. When we reached the Village, we were were joined by the mother of the young Mamo as we continued to journey upward. We were on our way to a Sacred site for spiritual work to cleanse ourselves before we began to talk.
It took hours for the walk to the site, sitting quietly with the Mamo and Saga. The natural world all around us speaking. Butterflies guiding us on the path, hummingbirds coming to hover infront of us, little insects coming up out of the earth, it was remarkable. We saw FOUR of the blue butterflies they have here in Colombia, they are huge and really, really beautiful. Lina and I both felt welcomed by the natural world as well as by the people.
When we finished we began to descend down the mountain. We were also blessed that there were clouds to cover the extreme sun and that it did not rain… at least not until we were finished our day and then the rains came.
We were welcomed into the Village with big bowls of fish soup that was cooked by the young women. It was amazing and I am always surprised how good the food can be with so little. In bowls made from the natural world we sat and ate in pure gratitude both Lina and I. Then we were given water with panella (a cane sugar) that is also very good. It was refreshing after a long day of hiking, preparing for the next stage of the work.
After eating we were led to where the Elder Mamos was to speak with him. This was where we sat with him for about 6 hours. Listening, sharing and talking about the state of the world. They have a deep passion for protecting the natural world, not only in their land but around the world.
They have been working hard to send a message into the world that we must pay attention to the natural world, to our Mother (Earth). There have been many messages coming from many groups and people in different forms such as videos, movies, statements, events, appearances, declarations … all coming from the Indigenous people of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. All of these message have the same thread; We must protect the natural world, it is our responsibility as a collective.
Sitting with the Elder Mamo he sits very still as though he is the center of the Universe itself holding a balance. Not even eye movement or breathing can be seen as he sits so quietly…. listening and taking in the energy of the conversation, the natural world and the life that surrounds him. He is listening to how the natural world will reply to the messages.
Each of us spoke of our threads of work and how we view the issues we face in the world today and how we can support restoring the balance. Then we spoke in detail on how we can support each other in our threads of work and how it may be possible to join our work to build a stronger unified effort.
It was a very positive and productive meeting of which Lina and I were grateful and honored to have as an opportunity to build upon our communication with the Mamos. We ended the meeting with understanding that we would continue to communicate with each other and wait to see how and when we may meet again.
For now, this particular group of Mamos are working all over the world with many tribes to bring a message of unity to protect life… to protect “The Mother” Earth…. we are all working on this path in many ways, with many threads and we are all converging to the center where the balance depends on.
To those people who gave financial support for this very important meeting to take place we are all extremely grateful from our hearts.The Mamos are also grateful and may you be blessed in return for your support of holding the Sacred Life of this planet in balance and for protecting LIFE itself.
I have shared some photos of our journey on this trip. Also, I have included a few photos from past journeys as well.
With gratitude and honor to serve the Creator and Life itself,
Thank you for your support. It is only through your generosity that the work is able to continue.
