“Prayer is the greatest thing I have as I walk upon this earth.”
believe that through prayer, we can change our way of thought."
"We're being a voice for the voiceless. Mother Earth is calling us back. We're covering her face with concrete. We're polluting her waters with garbage. Enough is enough. When the trees and water are gone, how can the world banks manufacture money?" started the Blessing of the Salmon Ceremony in ’94 on the Applegate River. I wanted to restore our ritualistic way so people would understand, be respectful and be careful of what they’re doing to the earth.”
“The blood has run long enough. We
have to care about the little people. It is not adults that own this world —
it is the children.”
"When is enough, enough?! We are here to let the beauty, love and joy continue so when you walk through this journey, the earth is the better for it. There is "right seeing" — parts of your mind open for you, and you see what people believe about reality. You created your experience of reality. Is it fear or greed? Or is it happiness? These experiences are not in the conscious mind of the earth — the anchor that holds the earth's vibrations. We become the see-ers, activating the third eye, seeing before the separation when the insatiable beast of greed takes over. We can give back love, generosity and forgiveness when we 'see' rightly. Yesterday was history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is our gift! What part will you play today?!""We are the natural nurturers of the Earth Mother. The Earth Mother needs our help, she needs our prayers. We need to educate the women of the world that prayer works."
"Legend tells us that the salmon were people shaped like us that lived in a beautiful city below the ocean floor. The spirit of the Salmon People chose to come back every spring and fall to feed the two-leggeds of this world. Lots of people say 'Grandma Agnes, that's a terrible story!' But I tell them the Salmon People chose to sacrifice themselves to feed us." ''We need to enlighten people and tell the world leaders there has to be a better way. If we allow the animal kingdom to disappear, at the rapid rate it is disappearing, then we are killing ourselves faster than we think."
"From the getgo, this council originated from the Spirit World. Every one of us has been called. Through our prayers, we can touch the hearts of the people. We can help stop spiritual blindness around the world. Our prayers can be brought from the four corners of the world for this work. We can be the voice of strength, encouragement, and love, fighting for peace. Remember, even water dripping on a rock can make a difference."
