A Sunbow in Yoho

Our family enjoyed a beautiful weekend at Emerald Lake in the Yoho National Park on the weekend.  On Sunday, while enjoying the warm sunshine and vibrant air, Bobbi became aware of a vivid sunbow overhead.  Many spiritually attuned cultures and people have stated this is a sign from the creator and can mark a time of great change or transition.  We were honoured to share space with this one.

Sunbows are also called Whirling Rainbows by some North American First Nations.  The Hopi and Navajo share the Whirling Rainbow prophecy, which reads:

“There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.

The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever”

The text of the prophecy is copied, with permission, from Dorothy at the Life Heart and Soul blog.

Raven is the creator in some Native American histories.  There were two ravens circling inside of the ring which made the experience increasingly profound.  The two ravens can be seen only as specks in the second photo – one just to the left of the sun and the other just above the leftmost tree’s silhouette.
