Chief Phil Lane Jr. and other Indigenous leaders explain to us the meaning of the Condor and Eagle prophecy, and the anticipated reunion of the two entities.
The Eagle and the Condor is an ancient prophecy that speaks volumes about where we came from, where we are now, and where we’re going. Essentially, all of human society splits into two paths- the path of the Eagle, and that of the Condor. The Eagle represents the North; masculine energy and focus of the mind. The path of the Condor is represented by the South; feminine energy and the softness of the heart.
According to the prophecy, the 1490s marked a significant event that would ignite a 500 year period of suffering and conflict. During this time, the people of the Eagle would gain enough power and force to almost completely eliminate the people of the Condor.
Look around…you can see this has happened and is continuing to happen today; the past 500 years show example after example of Native peoples being killed and oppressed.
The prophecy continues by saying that the next 500-year period, which began in the 1990s, would be a time of divine connection between the Eagle and the Condor. Or rather, that there would be the potential for these two to fly together and ring in a new age of consciousness for all mankind.
The following video is a clip from the film Shift of the Ages. It features indigenous leaders from North, South, and Central America who talk about the prophecy of the Condor and the Eagle- but they do more than just talk about it. They bring it to life. You can feel the fire of the Eagle, and the gentle caress of the Condor, and you experience the past 500 years in the blink of an eye.
The prophecy is telling us that the time for a shift is now. We have the potential; we know how to make this a better world for everyone. So, let’s do it. I’m ready to fly- are you?
