Inca Prophecy

by Vera Lopez Shapiro

We are all witnessing many events which have been prophesied and are coming to fruition in our time. There is one ancient Inca prophecy which proclaims: "When the Eagle of the North flies with the Condor of the South, The Spirit of the Land, She will Reawaken" .

As the story line in James Redfield's book, 'The Celestine Prophecy' describes, an ancient manuscript was discovered in the rain forests of Peru. Although this book is described as an "adventure-tale" of a man's journey to discover this manuscript, the insights contained in the book reveal a truth which goes well beyond an "adventure story" to a formula for living. The first insight is to "become conscious of the so-called coincidences in our lives" and to "understand that chance encounters have deeper meaning".

A series of profound coincidences began five years ago when I was living in my native Brazil. Many events took place in my life and I consciously understood the message that I should be in Machu Picchu, Peru, where my life would completely change. I journeyed to Peru with a spiritual group conducted by my Brazilian friend, psychologist, psychic, and channel, Luiz A. Gasparetto, at whose family's spiritual center I had studied metaphysics for fourteen years. (Shirley McClaine wrote about her experience with Luiz Gasparetto in her book " Going Within" and, in fact, devoted an entire chapter to him).

There, I was introduced to a light being, through Gasparetto, named Chuma, on my first visit to Machu Picchu. This experience completely transformed my life. Chuma was a High Priestess of Machu Picchu in a past life. She gave our group of fifty people many material proofs of her presence and the presence of other spiritual entities who live in Machu Picchu. Chuma said to us that the truth about Machu Picchu is that it was a "university" at which special young students cultivated, improved, and refined their knowledge of a spiritual science. She also said that when humanity is prepared, a record book will be found which will reveal all of the secrets of the past, present, and future. When I read "The Celestine Prophecy," I felt that the information, at least on a sub-conscious level, must have some connection with this record book.

After my first encounter with Chuma, I received a message to organize metaphysical groups to offer the opportunity to others who dream of visiting Peru, to help them realize this dream, and enjoy their own experience. It was so strong and my heart was so open that I accepted the challenge and began offering metaphysical journeys to my native Brazilians to the sacred land of Peru.

But the coincidences don't stop there. Three years ago I met my husband in Brazil who is an American who was visiting my country. We were married one year later and I moved with him to the United States. A whole new world opened up to me and something really interesting happened after my first arrival in the US. Chuma came to me and asked me to unify Brazilians and Americans in my journeys to the Andes. At the beginning, I admit that I was really scared because my English was very poor and I had no experience with the North American culture. But learning to trust my guide, once again, I did it!

In 1992, I prepared my first Brazilian/American group to Peru. It was such a profound experience for me and everyone in the group that I am sure the experience will remain in our lives forever.

Most of the time, the entity Chuma, who is my constant guide, does not give me too much information as to why I should do certain things in my work. Even though I did follow her direction and put together a group of Brazilians and Americans, I did not know exactly why. Between this first combined group in July of 1992 and my last group, which took place in July of 1994, I went to conduct a group to the Southwest areas of North America. In Santa Fe, I was given an article written by a Peruvian spiritual messenger named Willaru Huayta, who had visited North America a few months prior to my being there. When reading an interview with Willaru published in the book, "Profiles in Wisdom" by Steve McFadden, I went into a state of complete understanding of Chuma's guidance. An excerpt from his article states as follows:

"We have been waiting five hundred years. The Inca prophecies say that now, in this age, when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth will awaken. The eagles of the North cannot be free without the condors of the South. Now it's happening. Now is the time. The Aquarian Age is an era of light, an age of awakening, an age of returning to natural ways. Our generation is here to help begin this age, to prepare through different schools to understand the message of the heart, intuition, and nature. Native people speak with the Earth. When consciousness awakens, we can fly high like the eagle, or like the condor... Ultimately, you know, we are all native, because the word native comes from nature, and we are all parts of Mother nature. She is inside us, and we are inside her. We depend totally on the Earth, the Sun, and the Water. We belong to the evolution of nature in our physical bodies. But we also have a spiritual body that comes from the Sun, not the Sun you can see with two eyes, but another Sun that lies in another dimension, a golden Sun burning with the fire of spiritual light. The inner light of humans emanates from this spiritual source. We came to Earth from this Sun to have experiences on Earth, and eventually we will return to this Sun. We are children of the Sun."
Today I know that the peoples of South America represent the condor, and that all the people of North America carry the eagle inside. I feel honored to be just one to open my heart and break the wall between North and South America.

When we journey together in this sacred land and live through such a profound experience, we will carry in our hearts forever the best of our cultures which we shared, and this to me is how we can help to awaken Mother Earth and with our new awareness, become a brotherhood and planetary citizens.
