I decided to start this group after discovering among native American and other indigenous peoples their tradition of spiritual teachers called "Earth Keepers". Earth Keepers accept the responsibility to honor the spiritual essence of this Earth and all her "helpers" among the angelic beings, ancestral beings, the nature spirits and the elementals. By honoring and giving support to these beings, they support the Earth at this dangerous moment in history. Like humanity, these Beings need the support of healing, and our gratitude and love for them brings out their best...just as it does with humans.
The purpose of this group is to promote the creation of a network of Earth Keepers across America. There are many descriptions of what an Earth Keeper does or might do, but the primary qualification is the love of this Earth and her children. Her children include the spirits of the Earth, the Mineral World, the Plant World, the Animal World, the Human World, and even those ancestors or souls who choose to honor and work with Her as their work.
At this pivotal moment in history as the 2012 Movement gains strength and our vibration is being raised, it is necessary that more people realize that Man's estrangement from Nature must be healed and that we must re-align to the Laws of Cycles and Natural Laws in order to be saved ourselves.
Those who feel "called" to become an Earth Keeper are asked to participate in the creation of a network of sacred meeting places between the spirit world and humanity. The "model" for these places can take many forms...from Zen Gardens, to Labyrinths, to Sacred Groves, to herbal gardens, altars or Medicine Wheels. But we ask that each member consider taking responsibility for creating and maintaining a sacred place on land or in a place they can care for and honor...a place where people can meet with the sacred in prayer, meditation or ceremony. These "places" can be in a private woodland area, a meadow, their backyard or even in a room they can set aside for a loving space to welcome Spirit in.
We also propose that those choosing to create these spaces of beauty, of naturalness, and of wellness, make themselves available to conduct ceremony for others seeking the peace of the world. We will support one another in creating and conducting such ceremonies, prayer sessions, meditations, teachings or even love-ins, so that the Forces of Naturalness and Health are blessed and supported in their own worldwide needs.
The Earth Keeper Movement has different levels. The first level is the spiritual, and the deepest meaning lies here. But there is the need to take out this movement to the People, and this means moving our efforts into organization, into education, and even into helping to shape policy by our government and business organizations. The wisdom of the elders needs to be taken in and made a part of our own life choices. That wisdom needs to be spoken and re-spoken to our politicians and our economic leaders with the force of moral outrage, if necessary. For that reason, this site incorporates several "layers"...spiritual, organizational, educational, and even political. Different members will be drawn to different aspects of the Movement, and we encourage everyone to participate where they feel the "fit" best.
We invite anyone anywhere who is inspired by this opportunity to do something meaningful before the eyes of the Universe to join us, wherever they might be located. And help us do this work in a good way. Aho!
