Another Avatar moment at Standing Rock. This is a Golden Eagle that landed for about an hour. Natives gathered around it and were able to touch it. Scott Bunn

American Indians see the eagle as a sacred messenger that carries prayers to the Creator and returns with gifts and visions.

 Freedom is vital to the survival of the eagle and this teaches us that all people must be free to choose their own paths; to worship as the Creator leads them; and to respect the freedom of others.

The Eagle teaches how to master the art of patience and how to move through life without material attachments from their ability to sit for long hours perched on a limb in meditation.

Eagles have excellent hearing and can hunt as much by ear as by sight. To those to whom eagle comes, the ability to hear spiritually and psychically will awaken.

Eagles have sharp beaks and strong jaws that can remove a finger in one snap. The eagle tells us to mind our words and how they affects others; to speak kindly without sharp rancor.

Eagles are renowned for their superior vision, ten times greater than human eyesight. This quality is a gift of vision and clarity that should be used to help others through dark and troubling times.

The eagle is a creature of the air, but has strong legs to walk on the earth and often lives near the water for food. These qualities of the eagle teach us to maintain balance in all dimensions to achieve inner-growth. As we soar to spiritual awareness, we remain well grounded in reality as we purify ourselves with the cleansing waters.

The eagle teaches us to have the courage to strive for greater heights of spirituality. The Eagle is seen by American Indians as a connection to the Great Mystery - The Creator of all things.

    Just like the spiritual Message of Bernie's bird, the Native Americans also received Contact through the mighty Eagle! Isaiah 40:31: ". . . Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint."

    P.S.: Somehow, since I first got aware of the Water protectors at Standing Rock, I felt deep Inside, that this was a direct accomplishment of ''the decisive Great Struggle of Avatar''.

    Once long ago,when i was in my mid twenties seaarching for my true identity. I was visted by an eagle. I inquired as to why. I was told it had meaningful to native americans. I began to wonder about and began to learn about nai's. In my late 50's, i was brushed on my nose by an eagle. I knew it meant something but still was unclear as to its meaning. 5 years ago i embraced the great spirit and the creator. That seem period i discovered i was a native american and i hailed from the nation of the piute. I also convinced many of my family members of what our true heritage is. I have been actively supportive of standing rock. Two days ago i decided i was needed at Standing Rock. This was after the buffalo appeared . Within was the feeling of being touched by something greater then i ever. Today the eagle, today i learned its meaning, today i know what i must do. My message. EMBRACE THE GREAT SPIRIT, BELIEVE IN THE CREATOR. ITS THE PUREST OF ALL BELIFES. IT IS THE WAY. PROTECTORS, DO NOT ALLOW THOSE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND TO UNDERMINE OUR BELIEFS. PROTECTORS STAND AND WALK TALL. WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL CHANGE THE COURSE OF EVENTS. NOT ONLY FOR US BUT FOR THE HUMAN RACE. THE GREAT SPIRIT IS WITH US. DO NOT WAIVER IN THE PEACEFUL WAYS OF EXPRESSING WHAT WE KNOW IS TRUE. THIS IS OUR FATE AND OUR DESTINY. WE WILL BE CHALLENGED FROM ALL FRONTS. STAND TALL AND BE UNITED. ON THE PERSONAL SIDE I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO STAND WITH YOU AND DEFEAT THE BLACK SNAKE AS IT HAS BEEN TOLD. WE WILL PROTECT THE WATERS. WE ARE SET UP FO ALSO PROTECT HUMANITY. BELIEVE WE NO LONGER ARE THE INVISIBLE. BE PREPARED TO BE SEEN. BELIEVE WE ARE BEING HEARD. I CANNOT WAIT TO JOIN YOU.

    Sunday, I sat outside in south west Missouri to say a prayer of support for those at standing rock. I lit my candle and asked for cleansing. I brought my favorite crystal and carnelian and shaman stone. I lit my sage that I grow and gather right here. As I meditated I saw myself on that road...but alone...until I heard the words in my head...repeated...the ancestors are singing.. The ancestors are singing. As these words ended a hawk landed near me in a tree.. And sang...not cry like I have heard before while in flight...but sang. It was short but repeated...then it sat for a long while quiet. I had never heard this to me. I hope it indeed...was a blessing for all of you at standing rock. Thank you. And thank you for letting me share this experience.

  35. This was absolutely beautiful. My spirit was moved!

    What were the words spoken at the end? I repeated them out loud, but what do they mean?

  36. Unknown says:

    That is amazing this beautiful creature is sending a message that if we keep up destroying our lands thier will be no earth! SUCH an amazing blessing to get to become so connected to this beautiful animal by getting to pet him! Brought tears to my eyes to see & read this!

Stand in Solidarity with Standing Rock and walk the path of Righteousness,sacred prophesies are now being fulfilled...The Rainbow Nation is emerging...The Evil Empire will crumble soon...

  38. Romans1:22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
    23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
    24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
    25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

    I have had thehonor of being in the middle of an eagle gathering during the Arab spring in Egypt,the last eagles to leave were two golden eagles.I pray the great spirits of the earth continue to show their support as the buffalo did this mighty golden eagle and the wind spirits when theymoved that fire the cops set.As i stated before you are loved and blessed for your courage.Gaia and the ançestors say thank you.

  42. Eagles

    A symbol of a nation
    Or of solitude and grace
    Majestic in appearance
    Defining their own space

    Would you flock with others
    Or soar the sky alone
    What will be your direction
    When your views of life have grown

    Look where few do venture
    And set your sights on high
    Do what drives you forward
    That others dare not try

    It’s why eagles seek the mountains
    They’ve seen the world below
    And grown beyond the boundaries
    Of things most people know

    All animals are to be respected. The Spirit has spoken to me many times and more so this evening, guiding me to this article. We live on less than a half an acre of land and even though this little piece of land is enclosed by fence, we have treated it as well as we could for 20 years. In the last month, I have had visits by a Cooper's hawk and each time, he or she is more comfortable than the last. The last time he visited - he was sitting on a wooden bench. And then I was totally gifted when one day, I walked out the back door with my 2 dogs. One is a puppy and as she began to look up at a tree, I instinctively did the same. Looking back at us 25 ft away was a Bald Eagle sitting peacefully on a tree branch. He allowed me time to hustle the dogs in and grab my camera. We spent a second or a lifetime looking at each other, and I took a picture. When he was ready, he peacefully spread his wings, having to be careful because of the tree branches. I was able to capture this moment also. He flew over the tree and gave me one more opportunity to take one more memory of this experience. I grew up in the city and through the years have studied birds but I don't know anything about what these visits could mean in my life. Thank you to all of you who have shared what the eagle and Standing Rock means to you. If will try to continue reading the posts here in case someone has an answer to share with me.

    Sharing this to our indigenous brothers and sisters across the world.
    I understand the significance of the Eagle and connection to the spiritual realms. Some say it is due to it's ability to fly in to the heavens. I say no.

    Something to consider and is probably the same in other lands. I'm going to put this out there and say it's the sound of the eagle flapping it's wings that is the connection with the spiritual realm.
    HU is the sound (as in HUUU). If you search HU you will find that it is an ancient name for God / the Creator.

    I look at HU as being ones direct connection to God. All cultures around the world know of the connection and now they know why.

    Have a read of the text below. Enjoy

    This bird, the Hokioi, was seen by our ancestors. We (of the present day) have not seen it — that bird has disappeared now–a–days. The statement of our ancestor was that it was a powerful bird, a very powerful bird. It was a very large hawk. Its resting place was on the top of mountains; it did not rest on the plains. On the days in which it was on the wing our ancestors saw it; it was not seen every day as its abiding place was on the mountains. Its colour was red and black and white. It was a bird of (black) feathers, tinged with yellow and green; it had a bunch of red feathers on top of its head. It was a large bird, as large as a Moa. Its rival was the hawk. The hawk said it could reach the heavens; the hokioi said it could reach the heavens; there was contention between them. The hokioi said to the hawk, “what shall be your sign?” The hawk replied, “kei” (the peculiar cry of the hawk). Then the hawk asked, “what is to be your sign?” The hokioi replied, “hokioi–hokioi–hu–u.” These were there words. They then flew and approached the heavens. The winds and the clouds came. The hawk called out “kei” and descended, it could go no further on account of the winds and the clouds, but the hokioi disappeared into the heavens.
    “Kei” is the cry of the hawk. “Hokioi–hokioi” is the cry of the hokioi. “Hu–u” is the noise caused by the wings of the hokioi. It was recognized by the noise of its wings when it descends to earth.
