Ere many generations pass, our machinery will
be driven by power obtainable at any point in the
universe. It is a mere question of time when men
will succeed in attaching their machinery to the
very wheelwork of nature.
There is a definitive opportunity for the Indigenous to take control. The free energy movement is one of empowerment and of the future.

“They Are Coming…They Are Here”
Yesterday September 9, 2009 they showed themselves to me. Their light is bright, definitive, attentive, their coming, and their also already here.
Our Fathers, our Grandfathers. Our Mothers, our Grandmothers, our ancestors, our center.
I am so grateful, I am filled with love and compassion for them, for this time, and for everything I have been given. And I am filled with love for the human race, mankind, and all people. This is the goal, this is the objective. Only love, compassion and kindness can change us, and prepare us for them.
Only love can prepare us for their coming, acceptance is the key to the continuation of mankind.
I am Anishinabe = Ojibwe/ Mdewakanton -Dakota. I am American Indian, Native American, First Nation made of my father’s blood and of mother’s blood.
My Father was Mdewakanton - Dakota and my Mother was Anishinabe-Ojibwe.
We have about 27 months to prepare, or to continue preparing. Prayer, belief, commitment are all within our grasp. They are all free. They are all necessities to a greater understanding and tools for acknowledgment.
I have always been told we are pitiful human beings. And if not we will become pitiful in our own time. There is no harm. There is only transformation, enlightenment, the greater good if you will.
In my spiritual practice we honor the iyan, the stone, and the grandfathers. They are the first beings. They have been and they will always be. They have been our support, our teachers, and our rock if you will, in hard times and in good times.
Respect life, honor thyself, and be of love not of hate. Allow God to open your eyes ever so wide, ever so wider. He wants you to see the change. He wants you to be the change. He wants you to know you are the change. He wants you to know you have always been the change. Do not live in fear, or anger. They will only hold you back from drifting on the river of life, from wading in the waters of change. He wants you to accept who you are today; remember you are as he wants you.
Be at Peace with yourself and with your life. And when they see you, they will know you for who you truly are, and you will discover who you are in the reflection of their eyes.
Their love is so great, magnanimous, and unconditional that it could overwhelm you if you are not prepared. I know this to be true, for I have experienced it. In our ceremonies it has always been there. That love, that comfort, the steady beat of the heart, the silence of the mind, the acceptance and the resolution. The love is in those precious songs, Wakan Odowan as we say in our natural language; it is in those age old languages. Those deep, deep feelings we cannot seem to shake or destroy. We have always had the key to direct communication. Some of us have learned to understand that and accept that we have tools for camaraderie.
The truth is coming. Whether we want to accept it or not. It is not coming from without, it is coming from within. And where are we when it comes to the “within.” Are we being true to ourselves, to our God given being, or are we whoever we want to be. We deceive ourselves with the belief that we know the truth. Because of what we see and what we hear, or maybe even what we say. Now to speak as a human being and to have the audacity to believe that what we are saying is the truth, now that’s frightening and that is what we need to fear. We should fear ourselves and our own minds. We are the enemy.
We have been told. They have told us and we have chosen not to listen, and now it is too late. They are coming and they are here. When I say this to you where does your intellectual mind go, “who are they” of course. Well we know them, we have always known them. But we have chosen not to believe that we know them. We have chosen to live as skeptics, questioners, doubters. Well now it doesn’t matter, we are no longer in control of our own destiny; we have sold our choice for self gratification. We have chosen to be consumers rather than cooperators.
The river is here. The river is moving. What is your choice, what are you going to do. You will have to make a choice and you will not be able to wait any longer. Will you walk in, will you dive in, will you be afraid, or will you accept.
And once in the river will you fight the current, will you try to climb out back onto the shore, or will you grab onto your neighbor hoping that he will save you, or will you accept the river and go where it will take you. You have a choice and you are making it now as you read, you made it when you picked up this book, you made it when you awoke this morning and faced another day.
Nothing I say here is new, so if you came looking for new, it’s not here. This is the old. This is the known. This is the subconscious and the super-subconscious.
Everything you have ever wanted you already have. You have seen to that, they have seen to it that you do. If your life is filled with the negative, it is because you have attracted the negative to you. That is your own free will. Now is the time for the positive. You have been told this over and over. They have told you, in your relationships, in your experiences, in your dreams. You have chosen not to hear, even though you may have listened, you refused to hear. And that my friend is your karma.
In our ceremonies we have learned to learn. We have in silence been taught, throughout the millennia we have been right where we were meant to be and we have not strayed. Others have tried to move us from the path, but we have accepted and resisted. You know that history. It is your history too, especially if you call yourself an American.
But now the time for demarcation and division is gone, it is over. Some will see and some will not. But we are at a time now when our participation is not optional. Participation is not mandatory either. That might seem to be a dichotomy but once you ask and you have the answer, the understanding will be in the answer, and you will discover you have had the answer all the time.
Ask them to help you, they will, they are not of the negative, they are not polarized as you and I are, they are only there and now they are here. Speak to them, help them to help you. Be yourself; live in the light, even if for one day. Be there for them and they will see you and you will see yourself, sometimes in them.
President Barack Obama said in his speech yesterday the “time for action is now”. See, you are being told. He was talking on health care in America, but he could just as easily have been talking to the starving in Uganda, or the prisoner in Thailand or the poor in Moscow. And I know he was talking to you.
Find solitude, find the quiet in you, and remain there for awhile. Don’t interrupt yourself. Hear your heart and your soul speak to you. Be at one with yourself. The message is there. Look deep into your well, look way down past the garbage you have piles upon yourself and find that light, that innocence.
I can only implore you so much, much is up to you. I am only one messenger in a world of thousands. But I would not be saying these things to you if I did not truly love you. Even though you don’t know me and we have never met and may never meet.
Every day around the world a bell tolls and rings every hour on the hour in a church or a chapel, hear it and then listen to it, the message is there, in the sweet sound of life, of love of compassion. They want you to hear, to listen and to hear. But you have to turn away from the intellectual mind and turn to the spiritual mind.
Once I spoke to a group of people at a retreat in Minnesota, that’s where I’m from, and I tried to tell them of the spiritual mind and how we have access to it and how it would guide us if we would only allow it to take control.
But rather than hear me and listen, they chose to ask questions, interrupt and come to their own conclusions before I had the chance to explain it to them. They were not ready. It was very sad for me to see that happen to them. But they chose to separate, investigate and they used their intellectual minds, which were very powerful, and develop conclusions based on who I was, and not on what I said.
We have all done this. I have done it. But during the last year or so, I was active in my addiction, alcohol and drugs and I too allowed the frailty of my humanness to lead me and to run my life, my program. In AA we say “program” a lot while speaking of our attempts to recover from numerous bouts of active using.
But for me the lesson was that I am frail, weak, easily distracted, taken off course, waylaid. In short I am human.
I was running because of fear, I was afraid of me. I was using, kicking up the dirt, dust and grime of my addictive behavior so that I would not have to really see me. I used others as excuses. Fortunately for me I have a wife who did not give up on me and brought me back into recovery.
But I allowed my own human weakness to conjure up my disbelief systems. And did they ever come alive. I separated myself from all that was truly me, my wife, my friends, my family, my canupa (my pipe). Oh my God, my canupa, my center, my life and my love in its essence.
Fear, selfishness, resentment, anger, alcoholic disease, these are all the antithesis of who I am, and what I am suppose to be doing. My life should be of God and not of me. I am my own greatest distraction.
But here today, a short time into my recovery my insight is returning, my attentiveness has sharpened.
Much has been said about the great change that some say is coming and others have said is here. So I am not alone in my beliefs.

Yesterday I returned to an old CD that I've been carrying around for awhile. "Eurantia" is a message about God and the Universe which trys to explain the cosmos as known to many beings with the exception of ourselves. One day when shopping for cheap books at a thrift store I came across this book called Eurantia. Quite a heavy tome, but it had an interesting cover, it grabbed my interest, and for a buck, what the hell. Anyway it was tough reading and I never did get very far, but I read enough to understand the basic premise. It was a message to Earth (Eurantia as were known elsewhere in the universe) that explained how the universe works and what it is made of. Primarily God and God's creation. the book included a CD in the back, which I didn't realize until much later. Well I gave the book to my daughter and I kept the CD. And yesterday I listened to it a bit longer, as it is hours worth of listening time I only heard seven sections of chapter one.
Anyway during the last few days I felt as though I were chasing something, not quite sure what, but it was just out of reach. So I did a couple of things. I made a list, I drew a sketch, I read and re-read some, I prayed, and I shared some with my wife. I felt pretty good about my "work."
This morning I woke up with a revelation, an awareness or an understanding, for myself at least.
1. We have had visitors from a variety of other planets.
There is plenty of evidence with regard to this revelation. And there is plenty of denial. I've done enough research for myself to come to believe that the human race has had credible and consistent inter-relationships with beings from other worlds. I would go on to say that as far a race we are incomplete in our holistic evolution. Much of this stifling comes as a result of "progress" and "civilization" and it's inhibited sphere of growth opportunity and a lack of independent will to go beyond what we believe to be consistent with God's will. But this is beginning to change. There's a convergence taking place in the mind, body and souls of many individuals on earth who are not in touch with one another. They only understand what it is they are experiencing. So the convergence is harmoniously taking place.
2. We have had visitors from God, representatives if you will.
This revelation and the first are often confused. We have had both. These representatives have been with us since the beginning. Some of us have welcomed and acknowledged their inference to our delight. But others have not been willing to believe in them and have had a hard time in coming to their own realizations about spiritual inference and interface.
They are and have been trying to share with us and out limited capacity to comprehend a series of solutions and choices. Why? Because they know where we are headed and they really don't want that.
Our problem has been in a lack of willingness to interpret their messages. And until we can do that we will not be capable of advancing to the next level.
Historically other civilizations have had these "visitations" and because of their "primitive" societies they were able to believe, understand and incorporate the messages. So in tun they "advanced." We have become somewhat stagnant.
But, there is a growing community of believers and they are becoming more and more vocal and their messages are becoming more widely and genuinely accepted.
Because the Universe is God's universe, he is all. There is only him. And all that transcends space and time is him. And he wants the best for his children, us.
So he sends help.
Both from other Hyper-Universal Nations and from his own arsenal of Spiritual Guardians.
So that's it for now. Wopida Tanka.

Ceremonial Review for Policy: Teachings are the spiritual and real life substance of the Midewiwin faith and way of life for the original people of this part of the world the Anishinabe. To be a Midewiwin is to be a positive sober, drug free, peaceful person. A person that is working practicing contributing to ones family and community is fulfilling to the person in all walks and pursuit of life and happiness. By attending the seasonal ceremonies and working, participation in the various cleansing, healing ceremonies, memorials a person is thus renewed, re-energized for the daily tasks, work, school, career, home and community responsibilities of life, in the contemporary world we all live in today.-Eddie Benton-Banai
