"Being As One" New Mexico 2018
'Being As One', May 2018. Created in honoring of the first 'Gathering for Humanity' in Santa Fe, N.M. The shield has been born during my stay at the Gathering for Humanity, Galisteo,New Mexico, May 2018. It was a great honor to have been invited by Grandmother Flordemayo with the other Grandmothers. Just before the invitation I had received a Calling of my Inner-Guidance: "To create a Shield in honor of Grandmother Flordemayo, The Gathering for Humanity, and All" No feathers were allowed to be imported into the US, or out of the Netherlands. Grandmother has sent out a Call to all Four Directions and many people answered by sending feathers beads and more material to 'The Path'. When I arrived in Estancia, a pile of feather-packages was waiting for me. After offering a small ceremony to welcome and give thanks to the Birdspirits I started to create the Shield right away. I feel deeply blessed to have been part of This Global Gathering and to have been able to have received the possibility to create this true Co-Creation.
The Shield is permanently to be visited for prayer in the Chi-Centre, Galisteo, N.M.
