The Awakening of the "White Buffalo Calf Woman" (The Rise of the Divine Feminine)



There is prophesied that there will be a day of Union. When all of Earths children will unite as one, to protect and honor this Earth and her creatures.

The Lakota claimed this prophecy as, The White Buffalo Calf Woman. With her power she will reunite this Planet. However, the story actually symbolizes the Feminine energies rising, out of the separation and control of the lower masculine vibration. As the feminine energies begin to awaken, many are connecting to this energy and bringing forth the new Earth. Each and everyone of us have both masculine, and feminine energies within us. But, for so long we have disconnected ourselves from everything that is feminine, especially the Mother's Love. With this awakening within us, we are reconnecting ourselves to the Universe.




The Lakota tribe in the United States says that one day, the White Buffalo Calf Woman, will return. "She’s awaken, a wise and magical woman who will reunite all of Mother Earth’s children with her powers. Her return will also restore our balance with nature, a relationship that’s ruined now."


"It's everyday life for us that we hold Grandmother Earth sacred, we hold the trees and the plants, everything has a spirit. We need people to be really respectful for each other. The Great Spirit put us here all together. If we're going to survive, we need to have spirit and compassion. We're asking people to go to their sacred places or sacred spaces to pray." ~ Chief Arvol Looking Horse


In this prophecy they are referring to, the awakening of the "Woman" which is the awakening of the Feminine energy. Along with this awakening within us, comes the awareness of, our connection to All things. For so long the Masculine energies has controlled this world, keeping us in the lower vibrations of fear, separation, and survival. This Prophecy is the awakening of Love for humanity and this earth. This is the Awakening Of The Mother's spirit within us.



The legend of the White Buffalo Calf Woman is over 2,000 years old. This story is originally from the Lakota nation. It is thought that Turtle Island is North America, and from the Heart of Turtle Island came this prophecy.

 

The Prophecy



As the prophecy goes, the White Buffalo Calf Woman appeared over 2,000 years ago, during a period of great famine, war, and turmoil between various tribes. Two young Lakota soldiers were passing through with their lean horses, looking for something to hunt. Suddenly, they saw the figure of a woman enveloped in warm light and gleaming mist.


The woman was accompanied by a white buffalo. She was tall, svelte, and dressed in sacred embroidery. She had a feather in her hair and sage in her hand. This woman was incredibly beautiful. So much so, that one of the soldiers approached her lustfully. However, before he could even graze her skin, a great dark cloud hovered over him. He was momentarily frozen by a bolt of lightning.



The other soldier immediately fell to his knees in terror, thinking that the same fate awaited him. However, the beautiful woman brushed a hand through his hair and spoke to him in his language. She told him that she was awaken, a holy woman who had come to help them.



A new era of old traditions



The Lakota town gave the woman a warm welcome. They prepared a teepee for her. As soon as she stepped inside, the morning turned to twilight and all of the lands affected by famine and misery were wrapped in an amber and rosy light. Despite this, the people tried to offer her the best of what they had. They gave her roots, insects, dried herbs, and fresh water.

After this, the White Buffalo Calf Woman taught the Lakota people how to smoke a pipe. She offered them tobacco made from red willow bark and encouraged them to go from tent to tent. This honored the sun, creating a circle of strength, and giving thanks.(The "Peace Pipe" Tradition is a symbol of Peace and has been used in ceremony of Native tribes even still today) Later, she initiated them in a series of spiritual practices they could use to revere nature, praying with all the right words and completing ancient ancestral rites that the tribe had more or less forgotten.

She invited them to sing with her to please Mother Earth. They sang melodies, verses, and incantations offered up to the four cardinal directions. She reminded them about the importance of keeping up the ceremony of the pipe of peace. In the ceremony, men and women came together to honor their souls, the community, and their union.



The White Buffalo Calf Woman said farewell. She told the Lakota she would protect them as long as they followed these ceremonies and took care of the earth. Before going, she pulled a great herd of black buffalo from the horizon. There were so many of them that the mountains turned black and the ground trembled under their hooves. The world boomed forcefully with the sound of the animals. They would finally bring about the survival of the Native Americans.

The holy woman left them, saying: “Toksha ake wacinyanktin ktelo”, or “I shall see you again”. The Lakota keep on repeating this message to this day as they dream of her returning to purify the world. They hope she will bring harmony, balance, and spirituality to all nations. (Source)
