The Sacred Hoop

“We do not inherit our future from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children”

There is a Universal Medicine Wheel Teaching that demonstrates that there is only one Creator! We were placed on the Earth in Four Original Tribes.  We were originally given the same teachings, with different perspectives. We all need to share our knowledge with one and other, so that we all might grow greater in Spirit. The Creator does not hold one Nation above another, and sent messengers to all nations of the earth.  Everyone was given the sacred circle of Medicine Wheels, Mandalas and Sacred Circle Teachings, to learn and express true relationship to all Life.

As the Indigenous Elders of Turtle Island (the American Continent), the Red Race knew that peace would not be possible on the earth until the circle of humanity completed itself.  This would happen when the four races, represented by the four directions and the four colors, sat within the circle and share their knowledge and teachings.

"Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life. There is no shelter for evil. Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another world, be they Black, White, Red, or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers."   -- Hopi Prophecy

Over one hundred years ago, Black Elk had a vision of the time when Indian people would heal from the devastating effects of European migration.  In his vision, the Sacred Hoop, which had been broken, would be mended within seven generations. The children born into the last decades of the last century will be that seventh generation.

"At the beginning of this cycle of time, long ago, the Great Spirit came down and He made an appearance and He gathered the peoples of this earth together and He said to the human beings, 'I'm going to send you to four directions and over time I'm going to change you to four colors, but I'm going to give you some teachings and you will call these the Original Teachings and when you come back together with each other you will share these so that you can live and have peace on earth, and a great civilization will come about.' And he said 'During the cycle of time I'm going to give each of you two stone tablets. When I give you those stone tablets, don't cast those upon the ground. If any of the brothers and sisters of the four directions and the four colors cast their tablets on the ground, not only, will human beings have a hard time, but almost the earth itself will die.'"  -- Lee Brown, Cherokee

The following words were spoken by Lee Brown, Cherokee, at the Continental Indigenous Council, Tanana Valley, Fairbanks, Alaska in 1986:

Red wheel indicator

To the North He gave the White race of people the Guardianship of the fire. If you look at the center of many of the things they do you will find the fire. They say the light bulb is the white man's fire. If you look at the center of a car you will find a spark. If look at the center of the airplane and the train you will find the fire. The fire consumes, and also moves. This is why it was the white brothers and sisters who began to move upon the face of the earth and reunite us as a human family.

Red wheel indicator

To the South, He gave the Yellow race of people the Guardianship of the wind.  They were to learn about the sky, breathing and how to take that within ourselves for spiritual advancement.

Red wheel indicator

To the West He gave the Black race of people the Guardianship of the water. They were to learn the teachings of the water which is the chief of the elements, being the most humble and the most powerful.

Red wheel indicator

To the East, the Red people, he gave the Guardianship of the earth. We were to learn during this cycle of time the teachings of the earth, the plants that grow from the earth, the foods that you can eat, and the herbs that are healing so that when we came back together with the other brothers and sisters we could share this knowledge with them. Something good was to happen on the earth.

Medicine Wheel

Hopi Medicine wheel
Hopi "World" or "four directions" Symbol

This Medicine Wheel signifies "world" or "four directions" to the Hopi.  The "cosmic cross" or four bars represent north, south, east and west, and correspond to the outermost points on the horizon where the sun passes through the year; the solstice and equinox points. The four circles inside the outer outline represent the four nations, which came to the world to keep balance.

The Medicine Wheel symbolizes the individual journey we each must take to find our own path.  Within a medicine wheel are the four cardinal directions, the four colors, the four root races, the four elements, the four seasons, etc. A Tibetan will call it Kalachakra; a Hindu, mandala; a Taoist, pa qua. All medicine wheels are representations of the universes of space/time and of energy and spirit. With the exception of the pa gua, every medicine wheel represents (at least) the four directions and the four elements (earth, air, fire, water), with the center representing the individual.

Medicine Wheel Within Many Cultures

There are different, traditional understandings of the significance of the wheel and its components, but all these differences share the same common understanding:

“The medicine wheel is representative of American Indian Spirituality. The Medicine Wheel symbolizes the individual journey we each must take to find our own path. Within the Medicine Wheel are The Four Cardinal Directions and the Four Sacred Colors. The Circle represents the Circle of Life and the Center of the Circle, the Eternal Fire. The Eagle, flying toward the East, is a symbol of strength, endurance and vision. East signifies the renewal of life and the rebirth of Cherokee unity.
The medicine wheel is a symbol for the wheel of life, which is forever evolving and bringing new lessons and truths to the walking of the path. The Earthwalk is based on the understanding that each one of us must stand on every spoke, on the great wheel of life many times, and that every direction is to be honored. Until you have walked in others' moccasins, or stood on their spokes of the wheel, you will never truly know their hearts.
The medicine wheel teaches us that all lessons are equal, as are all talents and abilities. Every living creature will one day see and experience each spoke of the wheel, and know those truths. It is a pathway to truth, peace and harmony. The circle is never ending, life without end”. -- Native American Spirituality, 2003
The Ojibwe cultural image of balance is the medicine wheel.   Within this wheel, each aspect of being is situated in perfect balance with all other aspects. Each direction and its associated plants, spirits, animals, colors, minerals, and 'ages of man' (i.e., childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, elder) are balanced by those of the other directions.”  -- Reynolds Turton, 1997
All people and creatures are equally important in this perfect circle of understanding, growth and connectedness. Like the Medicine Wheel which represents life itself, learning is a continuous, ever changing process of growth”.  -- Uriel Sherri Wheeler, Medicine Wheel, 2008

Desy, a traditional medicine "Clown" describes the sacred hoop as a developmental, introspective tool, linking with it the classical elements, totems and four cardinal directions: The medicine wheel represents the sacred circle of life, its basic four directions, and the elements. Animal totems serve as guardian of each of the directions.

The S.U.N. Unification Symbol

The medicine wheel symbol for the S.U.N. Center is based on an ancient symbol that represents the unification of the four races as a significant indicator of the prophesied completion of the Sacred Hoop and Great Wheel of Life, in harmony with our Creator and the Creation.

Unification Symbol
Medicine Wheel as the UNIFICATION of the Four Races from the Four Directions

The above Unification symbol is a circle with an equal cross, representing the medicine wheel with its four colors, four directions, four elements and four root races.  The 12 circles around the outer rim of the medicine circle, three in each quadrant, have many significant meanings, such as a Council of 12 Sages, the gathering of 12 tribes, the 12 disciples of Christ, the 12 major constellations in relation to our SUN, etc.. 

The larger, central circle in the middle makes 12 + 1, or 13 as the sacred number of redemption.  A commentator writing about the Aztec calendar once said that:

"13 was a number central to certain traditions of sacred geometry, because it reflected a pattern which could be seen to exist in man, nature, and the heavens. For instance, there are 13 major joints in your body. There are 13 lunar cycles in a solar year, and the moon travels 13 degrees across the sky every day. Six circles placed around a seventh central circle is a model of geometric efficiency and perfection in the second dimension that has been known to mathematicians for ages. But this same configuration in three dimensions consists of 12 spheres arranged around one central sphere, making 13 in all - the most compact three-dimensional arrangement recurrent in nature. A commentator writing about the Aztec calendar once said that, 'Thirteen is a basic structural unit in nature. It means the attracting center around which elements focus and collect.' Is this, then, the reason for Christ’s 12 disciples, King Arthur’s 12 knights, or the 12 major constellations in relation to our sun? The likelihood seems great indeed."   -- Boyd Rice, 13: A Secret Number of Sacred Power"


S.U.N. Destiny

"Many shall be destroyed for their sins and evil ways. The Great Spirit has decreed it and no one can stop it, change it, or add anything to it. It shall be fulfilled!" ~ Rev. Paul Solomon

On August 7, 1970, a spectacular UFO sighting was witnessed by dozens of people and photographed by Chuck Roberts of the Prescott (Arizona) "Courier".  This sighting occurred after a "UFO calling" was performed by Rev. and sleeping prophet Paul Solomon of Virginia Beach, Va. and several Hopi Indians.  This sighting was interpreted by some Hopis as being a partial fulfillment of a certain Hopi prophecy given by the Great Spirit, Maasaw and inscribed on Second Mesa, warning of the coming of Purification Day, when:

"The true Hopi will be flown to other planets in ships without wings."  -- Hopi Prophecy 

On that day Paul Solomon received a symbol, which the Hopi elders informed him was their ancient, galactic symbol that represented a Unification of the Four races and a mission of how this great event was to be communicated to our space brothers from earth.

Paul Solomon  later gave this symbol to a woman in Virginia Beach and her name was Nannette Crist.

Twenty years later in 1991, Nanette Crist, a visionary artist from Virginia Beach met with Amarushka and her son Orion.  She passed Reverend Paul Solomon's message, symbol and mission to Amarushka.  Nanette confided in Amarushka and Orion the instructions that Paul had entrusted to her: that the ancient, Hopi symbol and its prophetic mission were to be given to someone far in the future.

Paul had told Nanette then, that she would be able to spiritually identify this future person.  Nanette went on to say that when she met 11 year old Orion, she witnessed in his aura a huge, spiritual connection that she had never experienced or seen before.  She described the presence above Orion as a large elaborate, headdress.

Nanette Crist then gave the symbol to Amarushka along with Reverend Solomon's mission, message and blessings, to keep for her son until it was time for this special destiny to unfold.

Unification Symbol

An important part of Paul's message, was that the symbol was to be the blueprint for a unifying building complex design, built so that from the sky, one could look down upon the complex below and observe the symbol. It would be an indicator to our most recent progenitors, the Annunaki that we have fulfilled our part of the evolutionary agreements to unify for peace made a long time ago when they left us here and returned home to Nibiru

"Perhaps through understanding unified physics the world can come to realize that all religions come from the same seed set of information as encoded into the geometry of their symbols, documents and monuments. This graphic gives one a general sense of how religions have grown, branching off of each other over time.

By educating all religions about all other religions (and the universe in general) we can bring the planet's collective awareness (the Noosphere) into increased resonance with itself...

Human Odyssey

Since the dawn of mankind, humans have tried to make sense of their world, especially when faced with unknown phenomena such as 'what causes storms', 'what happens to us after we die', and ‘how was the world formed’? It is plausible that from such questions, our first primitive religions were formed.

The earliest evidence of a religious practice can be traced back 300,000 years ago when we began to bury our dead. Although we cannot define this as the origin of faith, it does suggest that at the dawn of humanity, we had begun to consider some kind of afterlife.

Over time, this religious practice gave rise to a new ideology which spread across the continents, known today as ‘Animism’. This emerging faith was the root belief system that would evolve and branch out into numerous other ideologies all over the world. The journey of these evolving religions can be broken down into three classic periods.

It should be noted that these periods are not indicative of a new ideology improving upon previous faith systems. Religions change over time, they go extinct, and they split into distinct traditions. They adapt to their environment, they construct their environment in part, all just like organic evolution does.

Period 1: Animism (100,000 BCE – Present)

Humans began to believe that natural constructs (e.g. plants, animals, rocks and wind) possessed a spiritual essence. These spirit entities were believed to have powers and temperaments that influenced our everyday world. By worshiping these divine beings, it was believed we could maintain harmony with this spirit world and gain favours from them.

Period 2: Polytheism (5,500 BCE – Present)

The roots of Polytheism seem to lie in the Nostratic period (a hypothetical language family which seemed to have influenced all the African and Eurasian traditions. It seems likely the generation of new Gods were adopted from the nature spirits of the old world (giving abstract beings of thunder and Earth a more human form). During the Neolithic revolution, civilisations began to emerge requiring new areas of expertise (e.g. lawmaking, metallurgy, agriculture and commerce). It was the descendants of the Nostratic Gods (e.g. the Indo-Europeans and Sumerians) who took on the role of guide and leader to the civilised world.

Typically these divine beings were divided into several classes, overseeing the heavens, the mortal realm and the underworld. Each deity possessed their own powers, religious practice and domain (e.g. trading, diplomacy, war craft etc). Man could either worship one or all of these beings, gaining favour from them via offerings, prayer and even sacrifice.

Period 3: Monotheism (1348 BCE – Present)

In the Bronze Age, a new movement took shape that prioritised one God over all other deities. This system is known as Monotheism - a belief in one Supreme Being. In 1348 BCE, the pharaoh Akhenaten, raised a lesser known God called 'Aten' to supreme status, downplaying the role of all other Egyptian deities. A little later in Iran, Zoroaster (a Persian priest) claimed 'Ahura Mazda' to be the one supreme deity. This newly emerging system posited that one creator god had formed the known universe, and was totally self-sufficient, capable of ruling over all other domains. This idea became prominent in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Sikhism.

Most monotheistic systems tend to be exclusive in nature, which meant the gods of the Old world had to be purged from mans consciousness. As a consequence, monotheistic religions displayed less religious tolerance than polytheistic religions, resulting in many wars and political disputes.

There is a simple but profound Lakota prayer:

Mitakuye Oyasin

These two words mean "All My Relations" or "We are All Related"
To pray this prayer is to petition God on behalf of everyone and everything on Earth.

Mitakuye Oyasin honors the sacredness of each person's individual spiritual path, acknowledges the sacredness of all life (human, animal, plant, etc.) and creates an energy of awareness which strengthens not only the person who prays but the entire planet.
