What are the Hopi prophecies, and how are they linked to the year 2012?
I'm so glad you asked! Of all the 2012 predictions, these are the most important and exciting, because they not only foretell the 2012 Transition, they tell us what we can do about it.
This article reveals the signs of the end of the World Age, according to the Hopi prophecies... and what that means, in their point of view.
A Bit Of Background On The Hopi
The Hopi nation, on the Arizona lands, has highly spiritual values. Hopi means peace; their name for themselves is the Peaceful People. The rituals they do are for the benefit not just of themselves but of the whole world. The clans are matrilineal, and with a balance of power between females and males. Life is religion, in Hopi culture.
The Hopi have carried an oral tradition for centuries. The Hopi prophecies come from that tradition, and they tell of the signs that will presage the end of the World Age (ie, Fourth World) and our entry into the Fifth World.
Note: I'd like to be clear that the Hopi's, as far as I know, didn't give a date for the end of the Fourth World. That's the point of all the prophecies: they will give us warning.
But since all of these prophecies have already come true, and since other sources give us a calendar date for the end of a world age, it seems clear that the Hopi prophecies are talking about the 2012 Transition.
The Hopi Prophecies & Signs
Prophecy of the Theft of the Land: There will come a nation of white-skinned men, like Pahana, but not living like Pahana -- men who took the land that was not theirs.
(European conquest of the Americas.)
Prophecy of Thunder Strikers: These white-skinned men will strike and kill their enemies with thunder.
Prophecy of Wheels : Our lands will see the coming of spinning wheels filled with voices.
(Wagons moving west.)
Prophecy of Horned Creatures: A strange beast like a buffalo but with great long horns, will overrun the land in large numbers.
Prophecy of Iron Snakes: The land will be crossed by snakes of iron.
Prophecy of the Skies: The skies shall be criss-crossed by a giant spider's web, and the white man will put metal wires in the skies.
(Chemical trails deposited by military aircraft, and power and telephone lines.)
Prophecy of Rivers of Stone: The land shall be criss-crossed with rivers of stone that make pictures in the sun.
(Paved roads -- heat mirages.)
Prophecy of Black Seas: The sea will turn black, killing many living creatures.
Prophecy of Seekers: Many youth, wearing their hair long, join the tribal nations to learn their ways and ancient wisdom.
(Hippies and generations of spiritual seekers.)
Prophecy of the House in the Sky: A dwelling-place will be built in the heavens, above the earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star.
(Skylab, which according to witnesses seemed to be burning blue as it fell.)
Prophecy of Ashes: The white man will create a Gourd of Ashes that will lay waste to the land and keep it infertile for generations.
(Atomic bombs and radiation.)
Prophecy of Moon Theft: The white man will steal rocks from the moon. Then the balance of universal laws and natural forces will be disrupted, causing earthquakes, severe changes in the weather patterns, and social upheaval. This is a danger sign, that we are in the final days before the purification.
(The Apollo moon landings. As a Wiccan and Pagan, I can only feel this theft from the Temple of the Goddess to be a terrible desecration, but infinitely worse is the massive bomb the USA exploded on the Moon!)
Meaning of the Hopi Prophecies
The Hopi prophecies are clear and explicit signs that the end of the Fourth World Age is coming.
They don't see this as a bad thing, even though they foresaw that they would lose their lands, their ways, and many of their people. They also foresaw that it was temporary, and the wheel of life would turn again to their ways.
Although -- according to the Hopi prophecies -- the imminent Fifth World Age will be preceded by an intense cleansing (expressed in some forms as massive and frequent natural disasters), still there is a positive future ahead.
What is even more important than these oracular signs, in my opinion, are the Hopi prophecies that explain how to survive this transition, minimise the harm, and create the best possible future.
That is the subject of the first article on The Hopi Prophecies.
Other Ancient Prophecies
The Hopi are not, by any means, the only aboriginal nation to have prophecied the dark times, and the end of them.
Other nations around the world and throughout history have similar predictions.
