Toi tu te kupu When the word is established Toi tu te mana the mana is established Toi tu tu whenua and the land is secured.
In 2000 a kaumatua took me to a sacred site in the heart of New Zealand. He said to me Declare, declare, declare, Debbie and from that moment onwards my soul entered this world in a way I was born for. I have returned to this site on the 21st June each year to speak the words which are established.
Matariki is a special time for Maoridom. It is also a special time for the Tree of Peace being that this is also the date for the planting of the seeds for this. A purpose borne long ago now reaching our shores to birth a new nation and world. Enough to ignite any heart to a good cause yet this was in part another life event being experienced that I had seen years before.
Now it is 12 years later and many declarations have been done. These are the seeds carried on the four winds to those around the world who being fertile, plant, and then grow them. The declarations are arrived at through much mahi (work) over the 12 months before the 21 June.
To arrive at liberating my people I asked a question; how can my people be free when the rest of the world is not? Thus a series of declarations have been made over a long period. If one thinks upon the past one will realize that it takes a long time to suppress a people fully and so many layering and levels have been worked through. In this way my entire being has been concentrated upon the task assigned to me each day. Quite exhausting given there are many who would keep the people’s of the world suppressed.
I know in my heart that all upon earth who listen within reach these seeds. That one feels the need for change and for growth. And so vast numbers of people have the ability to gain freedom and liberation by listening to and nurturing the tree of peace as it grows high and branches wide across the globe. You do not need to leave it to the Governments of this world indeed if you wait for these you will not reach freedom and liberation. You the many must voice to the few that change is upon the earth and they must catch up with the program not the other way around then get about doing what is needed to be done. Don’t wait for the food to run out grow food, don’t wait to help your neighbor get on with it. Collect water, pick up rubbish, plant trees. On mass what can a Government do to stop you doing what is right and good.
The creation process is one of thought and there are so many caught in the mind-set of war, the greed of capitalism and power struggles of domination. You can turn your thoughts away from these to that of peace, prosperity, and empowerment. The peace of the mind and heart, prosperity of living your inner knowing and thus being who you truly are in each moment this will generate your empowerment to return to all that man kind let go of, thought lost, and is now returning.
At this special time upon earth the days of “the return of the Goddess” through the transit of Venus on the 5th June heralds a great liberation and freedom of the female and so is included in this years declarations.
Any transition from what is no longer serving or working to something new is always a space of fear as the unknown tends to generate this in us all. Remember the days when you went into something new and felt like you did not fit in had no sense of belonging and how quickly that changed into the comfortable space of being accepted and accepting. It was only your fear of being outside your comfort zone. So many of you already feel like you do not belong as you watch the world spiral out of control. Soon you shall be the normal and those who have chosen to stay asleep will become the minority. Change is good, it is where the growth is.
This is the message for this solstice; The compass is changing direction for the better . Humanity make sure your on the heading that you may arrive safely at the destination. Simply maintain positive thoughts, listen within, and follow this.
I am personally excited as this year is special with declarations which are a great gift to my people of liberation. It is true that so much more could have been the outcome just as it is true that the people who denied this by the power struggles and a few men who will not give way to what is known to be the way forward. Displacing me has caused a vast faltering of the vision which now teeters on the edge waiting for the restoration to take place, a decision made in October which has allowed the continuing of the declarations to go ahead. In delaying the restoration the future outcome of the declarations are compromised. We are reaching the cross roads it only remains to be seen which choice is made by the people how liberated and free or suppressed even by and unto their own will they be?. One must go into change with a full heart
De-colonization is about to begin but first some changes are required within our Iwi where those who have been suppressed by generations of conflict and colonization have become accepting of suppression from their own. Caught in this mire has caused great diminishing of mana and true suffering of the people. Shuffling around the same content which has not and will not produce change for the better. So I call upon the people to believe in something better for by believing you shall see. By accepting the unacceptable you shall stay bound and dominated. Like all, you have a choice to make and one that shall affect the future and future generations. I believe in you as I go to make sure you have what is your birthright in the way I have been called upon to do. I believe and I have seen.
In this way I navigate the waters ahead, in this way I chart the way and in this way I gift my being to you.
God Bless you, my people
