White Buffalo Calf Woman & The Rainbow Bridge
Within my mind’s eye, as if in a dream, I saw the White Buffalo Calf Woman approaching me. She knows she needs no introduction. Without a word, she takes my left hand within her right palm and begins to lead me toward a beautiful and vast plane. It feels so calm there; a place unaffected by the ways, the means, or the hands of men. Upon the horizon the Lakota Prophetess traced with her finger an arch from right to left and a huge rainbow in all of its glory and color appeared.
Her finger re-tracing the movements of the arch, the White Buffalo Calf Woman asked me to notice how it starts at the level of the Earth plane, rises into the Heavens and descends back down to the Earth plane again. "So full of hope," she said. Another word that she spoke was "destiny." As she and I looked upon the rainbow together, she spoke; "This is your destiny, because this rainbow is part of who you are and of everything."
As she drew me closer to the rainbow, it seemed to tower so awesomely above me. However, the lady calf woman was not awed. She simply knew. She spoke lovingly; "Notice how a rainbow takes advantage of all of Earth's elements to tell a story. The light of a fiery sun casts itself onto droplets of moisture within the Earth’s atmosphere, splitting light into colors which then form a brilliant arch. This arch forms a bridge between Heaven and Earth, connecting all. And, notice how, wherever the rainbow may appear, and whatever the day has been or whether a storm has or has not passed through, the story of each rainbow is still always the same. Each contains all the same colors reflected in the same way."
She continued; "Your life on Earth, dear child, contains all the colors that life can attest. You, and all upon the Earth, hold all the colors that Pure White Light can possess. Such colors are displayed as split but joined together. Intangible but clearly visible, such a rainbow reveals its beauty, unmistakably and everywhere."
Within my mind’s eye and still as if in a dream, the White Buffalo Calf Woman then led me to the base of the Rainbow which became tangible in her presence. As I took a closer look, there were many people from many walks of life standing upon it at different intervals.
"Walk it," she would ask me, in almost the form of a demand. She knew that I would not resist. She walked with me, hand in hand. As I climbed the rainbow, I saw hands around me everywhere begin to join; men, women and children from every culture, religion, race or creed that could be imagined. Many natives joined this empowered chain as well.
Once gathered at the top of the rainbow, the Beautiful White Buffalo Calf woman in a voice so clear and calm called upon us; "Dear Children of Great Spirit and of His Earth, look down upon a world below. You've come so far." She continued; "For many of you that have reached the top of the rainbow, it is made known to you that it doesn't matter from what religion you come, or what color you are, or what manifestations you have made of your life, but that you are here and joined in One purpose: to walk your Earth journey as equals and as brothers while creating awareness of who you are as children of the Divine One."
She then turned to face us all and asked each of us; "Look upon the Earth more clearly, Dear Ones. May you all stand upon this bridge between Heaven and Earth and gain a higher perspective looking down... a higher perspective of all your collective fruits. See the path you paint upon your Loving Earth with all the colors of your conscious and unconscious prayers and energy. Look upon all of it now and with loving and unbiased awareness. From the top of the rainbow, you understand your true perfection. Only from here, from rising above and still standing in the truth of who you are, it is possible to look down, for how to intend, think, pray and live in ways which recognize the Earth as a being who is joined with you on your amazing journey to know One and All. This is how to have your bridge to heaven, return itself to Earth again and touch ground. Only through bridging back to Earth from heaven may you learn how in all ways is She, your Earth, capable of representing and acting as a mirror for the purity of your truest form; if you should allow. For, She is the shadow of who you are and what you do unto her, you do upon yourself, because you are One. And, if you let Her speak to you from this heightened position, She can teach you how to have your collective Earth life represent the vibration of the Pure White Light that all Her rainbows stem from."
She continued; "Look at Nature to see what has been created there. Where do you observe a tree growing healthy fruit, and where can be found polluting weeds that without boundaries threaten what tries to flower all around? Of whatever you observe, and without tagging anything as 'positive' or 'negative' and only 'what is', ask yourself what underlying thoughts, desires, beliefs, or seeds has it been sown from? Do not discount the effect of conventions, everyday habits and lifestyles, for these are seeds in action. Like weeds they may begin to propagate and sow until the original seed is hard to note or take accountability for."
Pointing toward a part of Earth that had been harmed by the ways of mankind, she spoke; "Here, located among the weeds, may you find the root of collective prayers and thought forms which have sown imbalance and chaos into a world so much seeking to know PEACE and LOVE." Pointing towards a part of nature living more vibrantly, she spoke; "Located within all that is beautiful, balanced and unpolluted, lay the seeds of nature's abundantly healthy and thriving fruits. From these you may learn how to think and pray in more united and more fertile ways." She added; "You can then break any mental conditioning in which you have falsely learned to mistake those seeds that bear unfriendly and polluting fruits as those seeds that ALL THAT IS should pursue and adore. WE, of ALL THAT IS wish you to understand CHOICE; one in which you may choose to sow and create what benefits the good of all, since all are One, including One with Earth."
She continued; "Test all your thoughts for their Truth in Spirit, for they all need to be tested. Test all your wants and prayers for their greater effects, for all have effects. Test what or who you most follow, believe, serve or buy into for 'how come?' See how your light and all your colors touch everything and a bigger picture of your world. Know that you are joined as one; within your minds, your hearts, and within what you create with your hands. You create it all. However, it never affects who you are in Spirit, it can only affect a reflection of how you know yourself and a story you would tell."
Then, in all of our left hands appeared a paintbrush. In all of our right hands appeared a palette of all the colors of the rainbow. Then, the Lakota prophetess petitioned us all once again; "Look how when you look down upon your Earth you can see how in your conjoined efforts you have painted a portrait of the Son of Man beginning to see himself as Son of Creator yet still painting a portrait of yourselves as primarily a Son of Man. Such a son is a son of industry, a son of bondage to all you would conform and falsely rely. You are not a creature of Self-destruction, and you do have a choice of whether you wish to paint a life that collectively unfolds in these ways."
She continued; "Dear Ones, be mindful of the divisions that you manifest that keep you separated from Peace and from your fellow man. In truth, you are all joined and One in Spirit with the Creator of All That Is."
Beauty, wisdom and strength radiating from her being she wanted to inform; "Make a choice to paint this truth upon the Earth you see. Paint this truth into your experience and reality. For, it is time to use what you know of your Self in a more embodied way. Look down from the top of this rainbow upon Nature to ask Her more clearly how. Because your material world is alive with mirrors, portraits and all that you choose to be painted and why you have painted them."
"See any internal ways in which you treat yourselves or Earth in ways that makes either polluted or unworthy. Brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, children and your Mother, the Earth, are ever worthy. However, through mankind's treating life unkindly, he has not seen the colors of what you all truly are and what ALL truly IS."
As she continued talking, she asked those who stood with her to look down upon the Earth in new ways with conjoined foresight and conscious intention. "Free your self," she said, "For you are here to learn a new freedom regarding who you are and why you came to Earth. Earth is a story about yourself, first not knowing who you are and then knowing Truth. You are not a product to buy or sell; you own nothing and are owned by nothing. When you define yourself through who you are within the world, you create suffering. When you define yourself through a new prayer you re-create Truth. If you cannot pray for PEACE in your world and can only pray for what brings to you chaos, why pray at all?"
As I was wondering what the potential would be if no one prayed at all, she seemed to read my mind and had one thing to say; "You always have a choice of whether you will chose to learn a lesson within a lifetime. Through not choosing, one can never fail, for you can only be what you Are. You merely have another opportunity to learn and a cycle repeats again."
And, with this last statement, the vision shifted, and White Buffalo Calf Woman showed a glimpse of a potential future. In the vision were many people dressed in white robes, living in shared communities, learning together, at peace with one another and the world. These communities seemed to be one's that respected the Earth Mother and our brothers, sisters, elders and children. They did not operate on money but upon sharing and trade. Lifestyles were simpler and gentler. Power was ecologically responsible and people lovingly shared responsibilities in tending the land. These communities were one's that lived the rainbow bridge, seeking to bridge Earth to Heaven, while knowing how to bridge Heaven back to Earth again.
Who is the White Buffalo Calf Woman?
The White Buffalo Calf woman is part of the Lakota traditions. She appeared as an apparition of a young and beautiful woman in white clothing. She gave the Lakota’s many sacred rituals including the "chanunpa" or sacred peace pipe and taught ways of prayer. She said "With this holy pipe you will walk like a living prayer. With your feet resting upon the earth and the pipe stem reaching into the sky, your body forms a living bridge between the Sacred Beneath and the Sacred Above. Wanka Tanka smiles upon us because we are now as one; earth, sky, all living things, the two legged, the four legged, the winged ones, the trees, the grasses." All are related and all are one family.
White Buffalo Calf woman would leave but promised to return again. As she left she walked off in the same direction she had come and rolled over 4 times turning into 4 different colors of buffalo, the last one the white buffalo calf.

Lakota Instructions For Living
Friend do it this way - that is,
whatever you do in life,
do the very best you can
with both your heart and mind.
And if you do it that way,
the Power Of The Universe
will come to your assistance,
if your heart and mind are in Unity.
When one sits in the Hoop Of The People,
one must be responsible because
All of Creation is related.
And the hurt of one is the hurt of all.
And the honor of one is the honor of all.
And whatever we do effects everything in the universe.
If you do it that way - that is,
if you truly join your heart and mind
as One - whatever you ask for,
that's the Way It's Going To Be.
- passed down from White Buffalo Calf Woman
Visionary, Empath & Energy Worker
