CHUMASH MIGRATION AND STAR PEOPLE STORY
GREAT WAVE OF THE HEART
This is the Chumash migration and prophecy Story
as told to me
in 1980 by the Chumash Elder, Victor Lopez/Sky Eagle
We are not of this place.
We came from
the seven sisters, the Pleiades, and we came to this Earth in silent
ships powered by the sun. We brought our society and our technology
to a great land mass in the Pacific Ocean. So great was our technology
that we could defy gravity. By using crystals powered by the sun,
we created a great civilization which included mighty forms of irrigation.
We had lasers that could move mountains.
was so powerful that it began to affect the balance of Mother Earth.
The land shook with tremors. And a schism erupted between the People
of the Heart and the People of the mind. The People of the Heart
warned the People of the mind that this technology was a danger
so great that it was affecting the balance of Mother Earth.
of the Mind were certain that since their technology had created
the problem, their technology could solve it. But it did not, and
the disruption continued. Great land masses disappeared beneath
the waters, while others were thrust upwards. The poles of the Earth
shifted, and the Earth’s rotation went through a long period
of great “wobbling”. Once a perfect sphere, the Earth
became elliptical and bulged at the equator from the intense instability.
those among us called the memorizers. To preserve themselves and
our history, they went into the sea and they are dolphins now. They
have retained their fingers and pelvic bones, and they nurse their
babies with milk from their bodies. The dolphins remember us well.
They know our history and they know our fate.
As the land
sank beneath the waters of the Pacific, there came a Great Rainbow
Bridge that lead the People to this land. Here, we, the Chumash
people, lived a long time in peace, harmony and abundance. As long
as we lived simply, observing the laws of right relation and respect
for the gifts of Mother Earth our lives were well. We were a peaceful
people and we prospered.
We were warned
that a new People of the mind might come some day. And that they
will move without respect for this Earth, pushing from east to west
like a great wave of destruction without consideration for sacred
Earth and right relationship.
says that if these People of the Mind got a foothold there will
be no stopping them. As their wave of destruction moves from east
to west, the People of the Heart will find themselves pushed to
the western edge of this land. When the People of the Heart can
be pushed no further, and their backs are against the sea, they
will begin to turn around and recognize each other.
In the act
of turning around and recognizing each other, the People of the
Heart will remember. They will remember the beauty of this Earth
and their sacred relationship to it. They will remember their responsibility
to the future generations. And when the turn is complete and all
is remembered, the People standing at the western edge will create
a great Wave of the Heart that will move back across the land from
the west to the east, restoring balance and right relationship with
Lopez, Chumash Elder said:
It is prophesied that the People of the Heart will be successful.
This begins here, now, on the western edge of this land. We must
now turn around and recognize each other and remember our relationship
and responsibility to this Earth.
