The Openhand 1st Nations Pilgrimage in the Sedona area begins today, with people flying in from around the world to join us, all drawn by the inherent, compassionate sense of connection into the Originals of our planet. We've already made some tremendous multidimensional connections with the elders here. I can feel they're pleased to see us and how we might support an unravelling realignment here. It's sure to be a powerful week and I invite all in the community to join our daily journal. Be inspired!
The Tragedy of the Originals
We never expected it would be all "love and light" on this journey of remembrance and healing. Sedona is a stunning Red Rock county, where the scenery is totally breathtaking. That said, my first sense upon arriving here was that of desecration. The main centre is now a busy tourist hub, which sits right across the energies of the First Nations and what they established as sacred.
No doubt the history is complex, but it's understood the Apache were the first main tribe here, who lived abundantly from the land, not only hunting, but also foraging berries, cacti fruit and also farming maize. I definitely felt the Apache one of the groups calling us here when we were back in Avebury in the summer - the Apache helicopter was appearing just about everywhere, and heading west. Synchronicity speaks. These things don't happen by chance!
It's a long story (of course), but after a protracted campaign, the Apache were brutally displaced from the land by the US military and settlers, the final group being mercilessly marched from their reservation at Camp Verde (close by) to the San Carlos Indian Reservation. They were marched over the Mazatzal Mountains in winter by U.S. soldiers for nearly 200 miles, and at least 100 died along the way. This appalling chapter in Arizona’s history is known to the Yavapai-Apache as the Exodus.

I share it because, although no doubt atrocities happened on both sides, it speaks of the brutalisation and marginalisation of all those we may call the "Originals" on Earth. Countless have suffered in a similar fashion, whether it be in the Americas, Australasia, Africa or indeed more recently in Tibet. It's a dynamic many of us are carrying in our karma. The divisions, enmity, hatred, and grief have been carried by many.
Now is the time for healing. Especially since we're moving decidedly into End Times (as I explained in this recent 5D Shift Podcast). Embroiled energies in the field must be unraveled so the shift to higher 5D consciousness can succeed for many, and so that it will be more harmonious rather than explosive. Gaia has completed her contract with the matrix, and is reanimating her Torus, which we're clearing witnessing in the powerful weather patterns around the globe.
Healing and realignment with the natural flower of life is therefore utterly essential to all right now.
Connection and Healing
So yesterday, I with facilitators Cedar and Ann, both with a profound connection to the energies of the locality, connected on the land with some of the elders in the ether here. We signaled our heartfelt intention to honour their pain, and ensure that their history was seen and respected. But then also to support energetically to animate the Torus, the flower of life, so as to support a more harmonious realignment. It's pleasing to say they "saw" us and extended an open hand of friendship in support of the work.
This is the basis upon which our pilgrimage here now forms as the group gathers later today. We will speak into the challenges we've all faced, whether it be here in the Americas or much further afield; that it is time to forgive and let go - to look to the future with grace; to form bridges of connection into the higher dimensions. That must be the imperative now, for all with the ears to hear and eyes to see.
Come join us in this heartwarming gathering of healing here. It will be a pleasure to have you on board and to ripple those vibes of realignment far and wide through the field. I bow to the collective suffering experienced:
"You are seen, honoured, respected, cherished and loved".
Bright blessings to all,
