Verde River Headwaters
Rescuing the Life of the Verde River & Her Headwaters
In late February 2021, the Verde River Headwaters Land Tract, which holds great historical and bio-cultural significance was presented to The Mother Earth Restoration Trust (The MERT) for consideration in preserving an invaluable source of Water. Soon after in the beginning of March 2021, consultations with the Mother Earth were carried out in the Heart of the World by Elders of the Four Peoples of the Earth. It was immediately seen that the life of the River is in danger. She, the Mother Herself, was/is sending this “opportunity” as a request for The MERT, in common unity and purpose with many others, to act on Her behalf. (SEE VIDEO/AUDIO VERSION BELOW)
The Verde River Headwaters Land Tract is home to 7 Springs, who contribute to making the Verde one of the last remaining perennial Rivers in Arizona.
Bringing greater meaning to the concept of deep ecology, the Mother Earth expresses:
These Springs embody and represent children–girls and boys–who carry innocence and purity, which are attributes
inherent to the natural constitution of the River (Feminine).
Remember, Water is Feminine. When a child of a Mother is birthed – the Verde River (Headwaters) – She brings the light of innocence and purity to the world, which is preserved in the very Springs themselves. This light is an extension of the divinity of Life and it is received, held sacred, acknowledged and honored by all of the Elemental Beings of Nature that sustain us alive; the Stars, the Sun, the Moon, the Trees, the Air, the Birds, the Plants, the Grasses, the Rocks, the Animals, the Insects, the swimming Beings, and all that are unseen.
The flow of the Springs (innocence and purity) consequently brings the River into Her existence and permeates all of Nature and the entire Universe.
The Springs, and the River they developed into with the passing of time, at one point were recognized as an essential part of the web of Life by all the Beings of Nature, including humans in the region, whose life they made possible. This relationship was sustained through a constant dialogue founded on original principles of reciprocity and complementarity.
When humanity becomes aware, once again, of the sacredness of Water (Feminine), they will be acknowledging that giving birth is giving light and all light comes into the world through the Feminine (Water).
