eNewsChannels COLUMN: More Prayers Needed for Oceans, Reactors, Floods and 32 US Fires. “A smattering of summer rain boosted firefighters battling the massive forest fire near Los Alamos nuclear reactor.” Other News sources said the blaze came 50 ft from the Laboratory that stores America’s largest supply of nuclear weapons, along with 30,000 drums of plutonium-contaminated waste stored above ground under fabric tarps, not far from mini fires breaking out within the complex. (Catching fire would have released a plume of deadly fallout.) 12,000 residents, many in tears, were allowed to return home for the first time in nearly a week, “honking their horns and waving to firefighters.” (Source .)

World Prayers, including on June 25th, atop Mt Baldy (Ski Resort near LA), a powerfully energized Holy Mountain, brought the rains that saved Los Alamos. Prayers still needed to protect Ft Calhoun and reactors, fires, floods, drought, and oceans worldwide. Photo Courtesy of Aetherius Society


It was a miracle! Bless all those who prayed, and the rains and winds for cooperating – the winds changed direction. Many worldwide also gave thanks to God/Creator/Allah and Mother Earth for answering their prayers for those gentle rains and breezes that helped firemen avert an unfathomable disaster at Los Alamos that would have harmed our whole Earth Family. The nearby Pueblo tribes also gave thanks for the protection of their sacred sites, archaeological treasures, and watersheds.

People also blessed the rains that fell in Arizona, as well as Texas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Louisiana and New Mexico, many responding to the urgent prayer request on June 25, led by Dorothea Stevens of the San Carlos Apache Nation from the Native Brothers and Sisters in the Southwest. They had also invited everyone to unite in prayer with the tribes for the winds and heavenly rains (without lightning please) to protect ALL the people, the plants, animals and firefighters of Arizona and other states. “Pray with us in however way you talk to the Creator,” Stevens said.

Through our foundation’s Native ski and snowboard Programs, North American mountain communities learned that Mother Earth, like people, is even more generous with precipitation – both snow and rain, when we give thanks for them. Plus when we do good deeds, especially healing ones. The ski areas inviting Native youth to enjoy skiing and snowboarding on their beloved ancestral lands, inspired tribal Elders to lead snowdances that have ended snow droughts in North America since Vail asked the Utes to please save them 1963.

Native Elders have led raindances for eons, some together with church leaders, that have saved many communities from fires, including Durango and Denver, and I witnessed a Lakota ceremony that aired live on the Dodge radio, which saved the Kansas farmers from an extended drought in 1996. The tribes follow up with prayers or ceremonies, like the Native Elders-led Gratitude Snowdances, hosted by ski areas like Aspen and Telluride, usually result in more snowblessings.


While so many wildfires have been extinguished by the blessed rains, winds, and firefighters, many, many more prayers are dearly needed to assist all the people and Nature of the Southwest, South, California, Alaska, and everywhere worldwide still on fire or recovering.

The droughts in Texas, Oklahoma, and NM that led to these record fires, and other regions are horrific. The New Times reported on July 11 that “the heat and the drought are so bad in this southwest corner of Georgia that hogs can barely eat. Corn, a lucrative crop with a notorious thirst, is burning up in fields. Cotton plants are too weak to punch through soil so dry it might as well be pavement. Farmers with the money and equipment to irrigate are running wells dry in the unseasonably early and particularly brutal national drought that some say could rival the Dust Bowl days.”

The African drought is worse. Millions of families are losing children every day as their families wander for days looking for a camp that might have food or water.

“They all need prayers to balance nature’s building blocks,” say Indigenous Elders and others who pray daily. Los Alamos showed us how prayers by huge numbers of participants, especially on “Holy Mountains,” which we brought to light in our June 25th story, can greatly minimize fires, nuclear threats, and floods happening in America and worldwide. Since wildfires are heating our planet, polluting our oceans and air, and destroying the trees that convert Co2 into our oxygen supply – now dangerously low – daily prayers by our whole Earth Family could phenomenally help ensure that all our children survive and joyfully thrive.

Suzy "Chapstick" Chaffee Bio - as first woman on the USOC board in the 70s, she led the successful reform of the Olympic Rules with Legends like Bill Bradley, Muhammad Ali, Jack Kelly, Kip Keino, which leveled the playing fields with the government supported countries through Madison Ave, then led the Title IX March in DC. In 1996 she co-founded the Native American Olympic Team Foundation that has inspired ski areas across the US and Canada to invite tribal youth to share the joy of skiing with over 10,000 youth, which inspires their Elders to lead snowdances that have saved ski areas from droughts for 55 years. At the request of SLOC, she orchestrated a snowdance that restored their snow and also a Native ceremony with Ali, that protected Utah from expected terrorism, and every Olympics since then, including RIO!
