We have been waiting five hundred years.
The Inca prophecies say that now, in this
age, when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth
will awaken. The eagles of the North cannot be free without the condors of the South.
Now it's happening. Now is the time. The Aquarian Age is an era of light, an age of
awakening, an age of returning to natural ways. Our generation is here to help begin
this age, to prepare through different schools to understand the message of the heart,
intuition, and nature. Native people speak with the Earth. When consciousness
awakens, we can fly high like the eagle, or like the condor...
Ultimately, you know, we
are all native, because the word native comes from nature, and we are all parts of
Mother nature. She is inside us, and we are inside her. We depend totally on the
Earth, the Sun, and the Water. We belong to the evolution of nature in our physical
bodies. But we also have a spiritual body that comes from the Sun, not the Sun you
can see with two eyes, but another Sun that lies in another dimension, a golden Sun
burning with the fire of spiritual light. The inner light of humans emanates from this
spiritual source. We came to Earth from this Sun to have experiences on Earth, and
eventually we will return to this Sun.* * *
We are Children of the Sun.
Willaru Huayta is an Incan Spiritual Messenger from Cusco, Peru. Born a Quechua Indian, he
learned to receive esoteric truth during his spiritual quests in the Amazon jungles. A few years ago
he was asked to travel to the big city, Cusco, as a Chasqui (messenger) for the Great White
Brotherhood with messages pertaining to the transitional times in which we live.

Plant forms from previous worlds have begun to spring up as seeds--the
same kind of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kinds
of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same,
depending on how you look at them.Hopi prophecies speak of the return of Pahana, their True White Brother,
who left them in ancient times, promising to return. They wear their
hair in bangs to form a window, they say, by which to see their Elder
Brother when He returns. It is also an identifying mark for the Elder
Brother to recognize them.In 1975 the elders met in Canberra, drawing together over 350 Aboriginal
people. They gave a warning of cataclysms to come and told the people
to go out and teach their knowledge to the world, to prepare it for a
future time when we would go back to our beginnings; when all cultures
will exist as one.
Willaru Huarta grew up in the jungles of Peru, studying with the
shamans. He says that his native Quechua Incan prophecies predicted the
white man's coming would bring 500 years of materialism and imbalance.
But now they say that era is coming to an end and the Age of Aquarius
will "signal the return of Light to the planet and the dawn of a golden
era. We live in a time of the fulfillment of prophecy."Now he tours the world teaching his simple message: "Humanity should
cure itself and give help
to the poor. Regenerate yourself with light, and then help those who
have poverty of the soul.Return to the inner spirit, which we have abandoned while looking
elsewhere for happiness."The Q'ero: Another Peruvian group that are releasing prophecy, traveling
to the industrialized nations to hold ceremonies and share their vision
of the future.
The Prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor is told by many Native nations
in the Western Hemisphere. The following is an elaboration from the
Peace and Dignity Journeys Confederation of the Eagle and Condor
The Elders of this continent remember and talk about a prophecy that
foretold how we will come together and reunite as one. We are like a
body that was broken into pieces and this body will come back together
to be whole again. They speak about this in the South, Center and North.
Our Elders tell us that we will unite and get our strength back like
many arrows that will not be broken. They remember the history to keep
the fire alive. We have to come together to be one, to have complete
understanding. The main tool used was the arrow because our ancestors
all over the continent were hunters. In time they added this arrow to a
sacred bow. This bow is used all over this continent and is what we call
the half moon. They knew we would be around and this bow would be again
in the center, marking the direction that we should take. If we take a
step we send this arrow to follow.
All of our people have to make a new design for our children and the
future generations. They said it is written in the stars and we have to
make this work so they can move the spiritual energy. This will begin a
new time when we can take the Spirit in our own hands when the Eagle and
Our leaders said that we should not forget to pass this message to our
children. We will reunite our family and our people. Their Sun will be a
new light. When this is done the people will fulfill their destiny. The
pieces will be in place. There is a space for everybody and they will
be apart of this prophecy. The majority of our leaders say don't forget
to teach our children. All of the last leaders that were in command said
to keep the family together. We will be standing in this new design. We
will hold this in our home one day. Teach from Father to Son, from
Mother to Daughter. It is very simple to understand.
The Encounter of the Condor of Urin and the Eagle of Hanan
This Prophecy was related during the First Encuentro of Indigeneous Peoples in Quito, Ecuador in 1990.
In the unfolding of the life of the Indian Nations, every five centuries
produces transformations of both foundations and forms. With these
changes, life does not lose its essence. It becomes covered with new
skin. The old is rejuvenated. It is nourished with pure energy. This
energy Is transmitted by the great spirits of Allpa Mama and Pacha Mama,
that Is, of nature and of the Universe, in general.
Thousands of years ago, when life Initiated its vital cycle, Pachakamak
(God of Time) created Intl (the sun) and Quilla (the moon) out of the
union of it's tears and, thus, gave birth to the Runas, to the people,
of this continent Appla-Yala and In this birth emerged the Condor and
the Eagle, the Kuntur of Urin and the Anga de Hanan, their spirits
continually enriching the veins of the Runas of this continent.
Their strength motivated the north and south to unite. The union of the
people of the North with the South also signifies the union of the
Condor and the Eagle. The Condor and the Eagle join their tears from
Jahanpacha (the sky) to Ucupacha (the underground.) Out of this union
sprang Central America. In this piece of earth was concentrated the
wisdom of Hana and Urin. New nations developed, whose inhabitants had
the capacity to sow the earth In the middle of a great ocean and convert
it into what is today Central America.
These peoples, oriented by the laws of Allpa Mana and Pacha Mama, had to
pass through difficult situations, one of which was the splitting of
its nations into four parts. After this tragedy, the Willak Umus
(prophets) instructed their Amautas, Curacas, Arawikus or wise men to
create prophecies that would orient and guide our peoples. These
prophecies would teach the Indian nations to maintain themselves solid,
united and, above all, to search for the most appropriate paths for
The beginning of the liberation of the Indian people would be symbolized
by different prophecies, one of which Is the union of the tears of the
Condor of Urin and the Eagle of Hanan. The union of these tears would
cauterize our wounds and fortify our spirit, body and thought. The great
spirit would open furrows and in each furrow would water its seed, and
In each step would spring battalions of men who would bare their chests
to fend off the daggers of the enemy. They would reach out with their
hands to erase oppression, exploitation and Injustice, and they would
write on the huge page of the sky the sacred word of liberty.
The union of the Condor and Eagle, according to the prophecy, should
occur in this time. The ensuing time period will be born with a new
spirit. This new spirit will unite once again the red nations of North,
Central and South parts of the hemisphere.
It is important to understand the interpretation of the prophecy in
order to understand the purpose and scope of the Peace and Dignity
Journeys mandate which the intercontinental run is a part.
There are many steps that will and are being taken by our peoples in
this time. The Peace and Dignity runs are some of these steps. All steps
are part of the Vision, Dreams and Prayer that we are making to carry
out the instructions of our ancestors and to fulfill the prophecy by
active participation in these steps.
This is the prayer of Peace and Dignity that the Eagle and Condor Confederation be reestablished again.
Prophecies of the Q'ero Incan Shamans
The light of idealism gleamed in his eyes as Dr. Alberto Villoldo
described how an earthquake in 1949 underneath a monastery near Cuzco,
Peru, had rent the ground asunder, exposing an ancient Incan temple of
gold. This fulfilled a sign that the prophecies of Mosoq, the "time to
come," were now to be shared with the modern world.
Dr. Villoldo, a psychologist and medicinal anthropologist, has lived
among and trained with the Q'ero shamans and has played a key role in
bringing their ritual and prophecy to the awareness of the modern world.
The Q'ero are the last of the Incas - a tribe of 600 who sought refuge
at altitudes above 14,000 feet in order to escape the conquering
For 500 years the Q'ero elders have preserved a sacred prophecy of a
great change, or "pachacuti," in which the world would be turned
right-side-up, harmony and order would be restored, and chaos and
The Q'ero had lived in their villages high in the Andes in virtual solitude from the world until their "discovery" in 1949.
In that year, Oscar Nunez del Prado, an anthropologist, was at a
festival in Paucartambo, in southern Peru, when he met two Indians
speaking fluent Quecha, the language of the Incas. The first Western
expedition to the Q'ero villages then occurred in 1955.
Four years later, at the annual Feast of The Return of the Pleiades
taking place in the Andes, the gathering of 70,000 pilgrims from South
America were awed, and the crowd parted to let the Q'ero, unannounced
and wearing the Incan emblem of the sun, make their way forward to the
mountain top to make known that the time of the prophecies was at hand.
They were welcomed by theassembly and were told, "We've been waiting for
you for 500 years."
Recently, Q'ero elders journeyed to North America in fulfillment of their prophecies.
In November 1996, a small group of Q'ero, including the tribal leader
and the head shaman, visited several cities in the US, including New
York, where they performed a private ceremony at the Cathedral of St.
John the Divine.
The shamanic ritual had not been performed for 500 years. But in thevery
home of those who symbolized the former conquerors of their Incan
ancestors they shared their ritual and knowledge, not only with
interested Westerners who were learning their ways, but also with the
Dean of the great cathedral, thereby symbolically and spiritually
linking the two continents of North and South America.
According to ancient prophecy, this is the time of the great gathering
called the "mastay" and reintegration of the peoples of the four
The Q'ero are releasing their teachings to the West, in preparation for
the day the Eagle of the North and the Condor of the South (the
Americas) fly together again.
They believe that "munay," love and compassion, will be the guiding force of this great gathering of the peoples.
The new caretakers of the Earth will come from the West, and those that
have made the greatest impact on Mother Earth now have the moral
responsibility to remake their relationship with Her, after remaking
themselves," said Don Antonio Morales, a master Q'ero shaman.
The prophecy holds that North America will supply the physical strength,
or body; Europe will supply the mental aspect, or head; and the heart
will be supplied by South America.
When the Spanish conquered the Incas 500 years ago, the last pachacuti, or great change, occurred.
The Q'ero have been waiting ever since for the next pachacuti, when order would emerge out of chaos.
For the past five centuries they preserved their s acred knowledge, and
finally, in recent years, the signs were fulfilled that the great time
of change was at hand: the high mountain lagoons have dried, the condor
is nearly extinct and the discovery of the Golden Temple has occurred,
following the earthquake in 1949 which represented the wrath of the sun.
The prophecies are optimistic. They refer to the end of time as we know
it -- the death of a way of thinking and a way of being, the end of a
way of relating to nature and to the earth.
In the coming years, the Incas expect us to emerge into a golden age, a
golden millennium of peace.
The prophecies also speak of tumultuous changes happening in the earth,
and in our psyche, redefining our relationships and spirituality.
The next pachacuti, or great change, has already begun, and it promises
the emergence of a new human after this period of turmoil.
The chaos and upheaval characteristic of this period will last another
four years, according to the Q'ero.
The paradigm of European civilization will continue to collapse, and the
way of the Earth people will return. Even more importantly, the
shamanic elders speak about a tear in the fabric of time itself.
This presents an opportunity for us to describe ourselves not as who we
have been in the past but as who we are becoming.
Pachacuti also refers to a great Incan leader who lived in the late
He is said to have built Machu Picchu and was the architect of an empire
the size of the US.
For the Incas, Pachacuti is a spiritual prototype -- a Master, a
luminous one who stepped outside of time.
He was a messiah, but not in the Christian sense of the only son of God,
beyond the reach of humanity.
Rather he is viewed as a symbol and promise of who we all might become.
He embodies the essence of the prophecies of the pachacuti, as Pacha
means "earth" or "time," and cuti means "to set things right." His name
also means "transformer of the earth."
The prophecies of the pachacuti are known throughout the Andes. There
are those who believe the prophecies refer to the return of the leader
Pachacuti to defeat those who took the Incas' land.
But according to Dr. Villoldo, the return of Pachacuti is taking place
on the collective level. "It's not the return of a single individual who
embodies what we're becoming, but a process of emergence available to
The Q'ero have served as the caretakers of the rites and prophecies of
their Inca ancestors.
The prophecies are of no use unless one has the keys, the rites of
The Star Rites, or "Mosoq Karpay" (The Rites of the Time to Come), are
crucial to the practical growth described in the prophecies.
Following the "despachos" (ritualistic offerings of mesa, or medicine
bundles) at the ceremony in New York City, the shamans administered the
Mosoq Karpay to the individuals present, transmitting the energies
originating with the ancestors of their lineage.
The transmission of the Mosoq Karpay is the ceremony representing the
end of one's relationship to time.
It is a process of the heart.
This process of Becoming is considered more important than the
The Karpay (rites) plant the seed of knowledge, the seed of Pachacuti,
in the luminous body of the recipient.
It is up to each person to water and tend the seed so that it can grow
The rites are a transmission of potential; one must then make oneself
available to destiny.
The Karpays connect the person to an ancient lineage of knowledge and
power that cannot be accessed by the individual. It can only be summoned
by a tribe.
Ultimately, this power can provide the impetus for one to leap into the
body of an Inca, a Luminous One. That person is connected directly to
the stars, the Incan Sun of cosmology.
The Q'ero believe that the doorways between the worlds are opening
Holes in time that we can step through and beyond, where we can explore
our human capabilities. Regaining our luminous nature is a possibility
today for all who dare to take the leap.
The Andean shamans say, "Follow your own footsteps. Learn from the
rivers, the trees and the rocks. Honor the Christ, the Buddha, your
brothers and sisters. Honor the Earth Mother and the Great Spirit. Honor
yourself and all of creation."
"Look with the eyes of your soul and engage the essential," is the
teaching of the Q'ero.
Hunbatz Men tells of an ancient confederation of Native American elders
made up of representatives from Nicaragua to the Arctic Circle. They
have been meeting for thousands of years and continue to do so today.
Before the Spaniards came the confederation decided to hide the Mayan
teachings, entrusting certain families with their care. Hunbatz Men is
an inheritor of that lineage.In his book Secrets of Mayan Science/Religion, he reveals teachings that
mirror the Hindu and Buddhist ones of astrology, meditation, and the
septenary root of creation.He speaks of Kukulcan and Quetzalcoatl, not so much in light of an
expected return, but rather in terms of the possibility that each of us
can attain the same exalted stage by treading the path of attaining
knowledge. "To be Quetzalcoatl or Kukulcanis; to know the seven forces
that govern our body not only know them but also use them and
understand their intimate relationship with natural and cosmic laws. We
must comprehend the long and short cycles and the solar laws that
sustain our lives. We must know how to die, and how to be born."Don Alejandro Oxlaj is a seventh generation priest from Guatemala and
head of the Quiche Maya Elder Council. He has traveled throughout North
America, comparing the native prophecies of different tribes. In the
coming year he hopes to record and publish, for the first time in 500
years, the Mayan prophecies of his people.
