Four generations ago, many Apache elders from various tribes came together on a night when the full moon bled with the color of blood. They had many disturbing visions and foretold of a time to come. It was foretold from their visions that in the end times, Turtle Island (the earth) would spew back the blood that stained and stench its core. The red moon would shift and the seasons would reverse. Turtle Island (the earth) would swallow up many people and others would die from its falling mountains. The smell of death would over power the smell from the blossoms of flowers. The reign of the land kingdom creatures and sky kingdom creatures would turn on mankind with both violence and disease. The red men from Underworld would unite once again and the ancient ancestors would regain their spirits. The Apache elders foretold of much struggle and loss of land by the Invaders and the Pale Face. The elders spoke of the forth generations being the last to see the vengeance of the One Creator and the final destruction of Turtle Island and all that roamed it. The final signs would be told by the bear, the wolf, the coyote, the frog, the eagle, the hawk, the owl, and the raven. They would warn the Apaches, and speak to them, as they did in the past. The old ways would return, but it would be too late to smoke the peace pipe.
I have heard many variations of this prophecy over the past twenty years, from both Apache and other Natives. Some recall visions being the same or similar to those of the ancient elders. We are the fourth generation, since the oral stories go back as far as the 1600s. One hundred tribes living one hundred years are considered one generation of the four great Apache Regions. History speaks of at least seventy tribes of Apache bloodline and about thirty tribes being wiped out prior to that count. I receive continuous communication from around North and South America with stories of visions and signs that speak of such things. Below is a common recent communication from a native named Spirit Wolf about his signs and his visions; read without prejudice:
“Since November 2013, we have been hearing some rather strange sounds which we believe are coming from Mother Earth. Usually, no matter the temperature outside, I sleep with the window open. Last month in December, I did notice that the sounds began again, on the full moon. The sounds have a horn type sound to them, and another has a type of a howl tone to it. I had found out those sounds have been heard all over the globe, so I became very interested in finding out what they could be. We have been in this area for 15 years, always sleeping with a window open, even through hurricanes, not once had we heard those sounds. Even a 97 year old elder said she had never heard such a sound. Now if you listen to the scientist, they say it is not coming from earth, sky, or space; the latter two I agree with, however we could actually hear the sound rising up from the ground. Once it is in the air, it seems to surround you and is very hard to tell where it is coming from. I have found two sources that have the same sounds. One is harmonic quakes sounds. A friend asked me why they would deny the fact that earth is making the sounds. I believe they know that Earth is speaking, but don’t want to send people into a panic and cause them to lose control of their prepping needs. Very soon people will have to learn to live as the people once did in order to survive the new life.
In visions for the past two years, I have seen three bears. First, only walking on the road, later they began to come in and turn to elders. They spoke to me; showed me things I believe are to come. I saw death of many people. This bothered me and left me feeling heavy; then I saw those who survived working together as they once did. In one vision, I saw what looked like snow. A bear came and told me it was from a volcano. The bear came in as we prepared things to keep the ash out. The bear turned to me and said we must hurry; the time is close. I was thinking the bear meant to hurry with the task we were doing. I said, “We are almost done,” and the bear put his hand on my shoulder and said, “No, the time is close.” I said the sounds began in November and we have been cutting down trees for fire wood. In one of those trees we cut, was a shape of a bear.
As I said I have listened to recordings of sounds like this–many of them. I studied them closely and what was being said. Some people may think it is UFOs. Some even think they are big foot sounds. However, if they listen carefully to each sound, one can tell it is of the earth! Harmonic quakes, of course, usually come with lava moving. I am still reading about them so at this point it could also simply be moving of the plates. We also heard a sound that was much like a howl. I know what coyotes sound like. This was not like them. I often listen to them. I love the way they sound. It is not a wolf. There are none here. I have traveled to many countries. I have stayed in some foreign places a year–others longer. I have heard the rumble of quakes coming and these sounds are not like that. However, it does fill the air with a scent, as of those from the smell of mold, old roots, or minerals, but it didn’t come from such.”
Some say there is craziness to such nonsense talk. Some believe something very close to these old stories will come to pass. Some don’t know what to believe. Before you discredit such old Native stories from the past elders, hold fast your tongue and wait and see. For those that hear what I’ve heard from many people around the Americas, and for those that have shared the visions of our great ancestors as I have – I say, “Prepare my friend, prepare!”
