When the earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds and who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the warriors of the rainbow.
— Native American Prophecy
"There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.
The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever."
"When the Time of the White Buffalo approaches, the third generation of the White Eyes' children will grow their hair and speak of love as the healer of the Children of the Earth. These children will seek new ways of understanding themselves and others. They will wear feathers and beads and paint their faces. They will seek the Elders of the Red Race and drink of their wisdom. These white-eyed children will be a sign that the Ancestors are returning in white bodies, but they are Red on the inside. They will learn to walk the Earth Mother in balance again and reform the idea of the white chiefs. These children will be tested as they were when they were Red ancestors by unnatural substances like firewater to see if they can remain on the Sacred Path.
The generation of Flower Children have moved through this part of the prophecy and some have remained on the Sacred Path. Others were lost for a while and are now returning to the natural way of being. Some were disillusioned and have forgotten the high ideals that gave them life when their hearts were young, but others still are waking up and quickening into remembering.
Grandmother Cisi would look at me with her obsidian eyes piercing my soul when she spoke of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy, and I would feel my heart skip a beat and then fill with promise and love. She would tell me about the return of the Buffalo to Turtle Island and how the herds would once again be numerous. After the time when the Buffalo returned, the generation following the Flower Children would see the dawning of the Fifth World of Peace."
— Navajo / Hopi Prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow
The Eagle and the Condor is an ancient Amazon prophecy that speaks of human societies splitting into two paths – that of the Eagle (North), and that of the Condor (South). The path of the Condor is the path of heart, of intuition, and of the feminine. The path of the Eagle is the path of the mind, of the industrial, and of the masculine.
The prophecy says that the 1490s would begin a 500 year period during during which the Eagle people would become so powerful that they would virtually drive the Condor people out of existence. This can be seen in the conquering of the Americas and the killing and oppressing of the indigenous peoples in the subsequent 500 years – up to and including today.
The prophecy says that during the next 500-year period, beginning in 1990, the potential would arise for the Eagle and the Condor to come together, to fly in the same sky, and to create a new level of consciousness for humanity. The prophecy only speaks of the potential, so it’s up to us to activate this potential and ensure that a new consciousness is allowed to arise.
“The Prophecy of the Condor and Eagle” can be taken at many levels — the standard interpretation is that it foretells the sharing of indigenous knowledge with the technologies of science, the balancing of yin and yang, and the bridging of northern and southern cultures. However, most powerful is the message it offers about consciousness; it says that we have entered a time when we can benefit from the many diverse ways of seeing ourselves and the world, and that we can use these as a springboard to higher levels of awareness. As human beings we can truly wake up and evolve into a more conscious species.
The Eagle and Condor legend most likely comes from the Amazon and dates back more than 2000 years, although we cannot know for certain when and where the story originates. I have found versions of it in the Andes, through Central America, and have seen its influence on the Maya, the Aztec, the Hopi, and the Navajo.
The prophecy serves as a way of classifying and understanding changes in the world, from north to south and from east to west. It is an explanation of the two different paths that the human race has taken throughout history.
These two paths have diverged time and time again, but the prophecy states that the time is NOW when the two paths will potentially conjoin to become one.
These prophecies describe a story of division and conflict, but also of union and peace.
The following video is a clip from the film Shift of the Ages. It features indigenous leaders from North, South, and Central America who talk about the prophecy of the Condor and the Eagle- but they do more than just talk about it. They bring it to life.

Mitakuye Oyasin - Aho Mitakuye Oyasin is a simple yet profound statement. It comes from the Lakota Nation and means 'All my relations'. It is spoken during prayer and ceremony to invite and acknowledge that we are all one. In the western world we interpret "To all my Relations" as a statement to our relatives or ancestors, however, its meaning is much greater and speaks to our connection with all of creation, plants, animals, creepy crawlies, dirt, the Stars, the Universe, and beyond. That which is all life force and life force creation energy.
Aho Mitakuye Oyasin... To All my relations. I honor you in this circle of life with me today. I am grateful for this opportunity to acknowledge you in this prayer..
To the Creator, for the ultimate gift of life, I thank you.
To the mineral nation that has built and maintained my bones and all foundations of life experience, I thank you.
To the plant nation that sustains my organs and body and gives me healing herbs for sickness, I thank you.
To the animal nation that feeds me from your own flesh and offers your loyal companionship in this walk of life, I thank you.
To the human nation that shares my path as a soul upon the sacred wheel of Earthly life, I thank you.
To the Spirit nation that guides me invisibly through the ups and downs of life and for carrying the torch of light through the Ages. I thank you.
To the Four Winds of Change and Growth, I thank you.
You are all my relations, my relatives, without whom I would not be alive. We are in the circle of life together, co-existing, co-creating our destiny. One, not more important than the other. One nation evolving from the other and yet each dependent upon the one above and the one below. All of us a part of the Great Mystery.
Thank you for this Life.
— Aho Mitakuye Oyasin —
So often, people feel like "there's got to be more to life..."
You need to know that your life purpose exists and who you are serves a greater purpose in this world.
How do I know about this?
...from my unique challenges in life, starting from when I almost died in an accident, then later was diagnosed with a debilitating auto-immune disease, that partially paralyzed my right arm. I took my health and my future into my own hands and risked everything I had ever created in order to recover my health and ultimately my happiness.
I learned teachable techniques that helped me to grow a meaningful business which serves people around the world, and live a life filled with love, purpose, adventure, and miracles.
The same techniques I've used to create a life worth living, I have taught to many people who have then become fulfilled in life, love, and career; and I'd like to teach you how to start finding and restoring your life purpose too.
I can promise that you will never look at life the same way again.
Whether you are considering making a life transition and don't know where to begin, or stuck in the same self-defeating patterns year after year, the path of Shamanic healing and earth-based wisdom offers unparalleled results in creating lasting transformation.
A personal note from Chloë, Founder of Explore Deeply...
When I first began exploring shamanism as a way to my own healing, I was not aware that I had a certain calling and was being invited to walk a well worn path of the ‘Red Road Ways’. I could not fathom how this way of interacting with the natural world would become so natural to me, almost instinctual, as if was a part of my DNA.
That is when I realized that what was being revealed to me while engaging in ritual and ceremonial practices and offered to me through the teachings of my Elders, was much greater than a teaching or a belief system or a “way of learning about the world through oral histories or seeing the world through metaphorical stories”. I started to sense that I was tapping into a way of communicating with the Intelligence of ALL Creation, the Nature of true Existence all around me.
I realized that this is not an antiquated sentimental way of viewing and experiencing the world. But a very real, very alive, highly evolved and intensely present awake and aware intelligence that is actively communicating with us in our modern world. In fact, trying to communicate with us in order to engage in collaborative solutions to our twenty-first-century issues of pollution, illness, disease, war, and other plagues of humanity in our present-day environment.
At this time in my personal level of understanding, I believe that by using the practices first to heal ourselves and regain our personal power, and then engaging in communication with this Intelligence through “shamanic practices” we may be able to solve the problems that we humans have created in our natural environment and help to bring healing and harmony to the planet.
The prophecy that was told to me on my first visit to Peru is that the Eagle People of the North, we ‘Westerners’, would come to the Medicine People of the South, the Condor People, and learn the Medicine ways that they had protected and kept safe for 500 years. At this time in present day history it is said that we, the Eagle People of the North, would then become the Mesa carriers, or the protectors of the Medicine Ways and give this healing to those seeking the wisdom of connection to All.
It was not until my work in Peru in 2015, where I received a vision to return home and “connect with the Plains Indians” that certain experiences on my journey started to make sense. Through a series of synchronicities upon my return to Virginia I began to apprentice under my Elder, a Native American Medicine Woman, and received the Medicine bag from which I now teach.
In this way, I was more surprised than the Shamans in Peru to find myself there looking for healing. They said, “We’ve been expecting you.” and I thought they were being coy. I was told, “The Mountains are speaking to you.” and I was shocked by the truth that resonated within me in hearing that statement.
The Apu, Mountain Spirits, are powerful Spirit Teachers in Andean Cosmology. Though I had never been to Peru before, when these words were spoken to me at the bottom of an Inca ruin I knew that the Mountains had been speaking to me all my life, and had recently, in my personal life, helped me to a path to healing after battling with a serious auto-immune disease.
Symptoms which had caused adrenal system failure, contributing to losing my hair, severe brain fog, debilitating exhaustion, short term memory loss, partial paralyzation of my right arm and left hand fingers, and painful internal and external organ inflammation which I could only describe as being blown up like a puffer fish with the poison spikes exploding on the inside.
By the time I had made it to Peru, I was beginning to heal and what transpired on the land during that firrst visit would forever change the course of my life and ultimately lead me to a place of re-remembering who I have always meant to be.
Gratefully I have a lot of support from my Teachers, Spirit Guides, Power Animals, and Ancestors.
I know that you have the same support available to you at all times. You must only ask and open to receive their help and guidance.
It is my hope to give you as much of what I have learned along this path as possible, in a way that speaks to your heart, and gives you a framework that is helpful in gleaning understanding from your own experiences.
What I am sharing with you is only a small part of the vast knowledge and depth of the wisdom that is available to us when we learn to tap into the cosmic web of Energy.
I hope to give you context that serves you to perceive the meaning of your own experiences as you walk your path.
