Prayer for the Gulf from the 13 Grandmothers

13 Indigenous GrandmothersBecause I lack an engineering degree and don’t understand why we can’t just stop this thing NOW with a 10-ton wad of gum or giant boulder or massive Q-tip, I’ll share more spiritual wisdom from elders. This is from the beautiful, amazing International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers–they each represent a continent and a native tradition. I saw them not long ago in NYC and was dazzled and warmed by their fiercely grandmotherly presence. Here is something they have written about the oil spill–they advise us to “stay awake” and then to reach into our hearts and help cast a “Net of Light.” Please read and pass it along. My sense is they want as many eyes and hearts on it as possible.


“We ask you to cast, anchor, and hold the Net of Light steady for the Gulf of Mexico,” the Grandmothers said. “This crisis is affecting the entire world, and humanity is asleep. Wake up!” they cried. “Animals are dying, plants are dying, and your Mother is writhing in agony. If you hold the Net of Light steady at this time you will help stave off further catastrophe.

“You have been lulled into a false sleep,” they said, “told that others (B.P.) would take care of this problem. This is not so,” they said. “And this is not the time for you to fall into oblivion. Determine now to stay awake, and once you have made that commitment, think of, cast, and hold the Net of Light. Hold it deep and hold it wide. Amplify its reach to penetrate the waters of the Gulf and dive deep beneath the crust of Mother Earth. Anchor it at the earth’s core and as you hold it there, ask it to unify with the mineral kingdom of this planet. It will do this and will harmonize with all the solid and liquid mineral states on earth-including oil and gas. The Net of Light will call these minerals back into harmony.


“Whatever human beings have damaged, human beings must correct,” the Grandmothers said. “This is the law. We repeat: This is the law. You cannot sit back and ask God to fix the mess humanity has created. Each of you must throw your shoulders to the wheel and work. We are asking for your help. Several years ago we gave you the Net of Light so you would be able to help the earth at times like this. Step forward now. This is the Net of Light that will hold the earth during the times of change that are upon you,” they said.

“First move into your heart and call on us. We will meet you there. The Net of Light is lit by the jewel of your heart,” they said, “so move into this lighted place within you and open to the Net of which you are a part. Bask in its calming presence. It holds you at the same time that you hold it.


“Now think of magnifying your union with us. We, the Great Council of the Grandmothers, are with you now, and all those who work with the Net of Light are also with you. There are thousands, even millions now connected in light,” they said. “Along with this union, call forth the power of the sacred places on earth. These will amplify the potency of our joint effort. Then call on the sacred beings that have come to prevent the catastrophe that threatens to overwhelm your planet. We will work together,” they said, nodding slowly.

“Think of, cast and magnify the presence of the Net of Light in the Gulf of Mexico. See, imagine or think of it holding the waters, holding the land, the plants, the sea life, and the people. Holding them all!” they said. “The Net of Light is holding them steady; it is returning them to balance. Let the love within your lighted heart keep pouring into the Net of Light and hold, hold, hold. Calmly and reverently watch as the light from your heart flows along the strands of the Net. It will follow your command and continuously move forth. As soon as you think of it, it will happen. We ask you to practice this for only a few minutes at a time, but to repeat it throughout the day and night.


“We promise that this work with the Net of Light will do untold good,” the Grandmothers said. “We are calling you to service now. You are needed. Do not miss this opportunity. We thank you and bless you.”

    i’m not sure about the net of lite but one thing that i dont know for sure, and that is what ever the enemy puts there to distroy us, i know that God My Heavenly father sees all, and that the prayer of faith can change to course of nature.

  • Deborah Marsh

    i meant to say the one thing that i do know for sure, is that God is not asleep, and all the believers have to do is PRAY, THere is nothing that God can’t do….

  • My Name

    And while your God is busy, Deborah, what are YOU doing? Hopefully not just lying in a hammock praying somewhere, and expecting your God to do all that dirty work? God’s not allowed to fall asleep on this one. I’ll tell you one thing for sure — YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO FALL ASLEEP EITHER.

    Thank you Valerie for posting their prayer …I was looking for the Grandmother words, and especially this prayer for the Gulf and the water.
    I pray that the grandmothers words will penetrate your heart…and whatever God(s), creator you prayer to …….
    To realize that you may be the one person, that is needed to change the tide…
    You may be the ONE person to bring the balance…
    Read again what the Grandmothers are saying…and simple join us.
    Thank you, Janet

    So deep and inspiring, Grandmoms. There is nothing brought on that cannot be prayed for with faith and love. Amazing things could occur through prayer.

    While I like the Net of Light idea, I dont get the feeling that MOM is writhing in agony. What most of us humans fail to realize is just how BIG a planet She is ! SHE has told me on numerous occasions that SHE is a BIG planet and that SHE (as a whole) can take care of Herself.
    …If anything this is one more mosquito bite that=might= be making HER think about getting some bug spray or a swatter…and if/when SHE does that we’d all better watch out….
    While I feel for all of the people whose lives are being jacked around, the thought occurred to me…when was the last time they gave thanks for the bounty with which they made/make their livelihood ?
    Time to go pick up some Litter….

    This work is homeopathic in nature, but in a grander scale. Binding the affected mineral kingdom for balance. It makes sense.

  • Dentistry Roseville

    This is a very interesting reading. Thanks for sharing, it made me think that somehow it is important to listen to them. God bless!

    I believe that the grandmothers of the earth have touched some of us,
    but let us not forget that we beings of this earth are interconnected
    through the earths’and our energy forces and knowing that we are all
    energy beings with the power to create our and mother earths future
    through proper thinking and guidance through the powers of the ONE
    that creates ALL.It is past the time that we should all gather as
    one to assist mother nature in her race to keep our planet a safe
    haven until as etheral beings we may assist in her healings.Until
    then,A prayer to the ONE Source (GOD) should be in order
    As I am………..nsrchoftruth. PEACE
