Shamanic earth-based wisdom reminds us of our interconnectedness with the earth and all the other living beings around us. We can discover ways to restore and strengthen these relationship through science as well. This podcast episode, from The Detour with Adams Davis, is called “Democracy of Species." It was recorded in May 2022, and explores the relationships between human beings and other beings, between humans and animals, humans and plants, and humans and the earth itself.
Robin Wall Kimmerer and Emma Marris pay careful attention to the interconnections between these beings. Whether they are looking at mosses or sweet grass, maples or wolves or humans, Robin and Emma are wonderful teachers, helping us to see our world and ourselves more fully, and challenging us to reconsider our role in this fluid and dynamic web of relationships and responsibilities.

In Episode #36 “Prophecy, Prayer, Truth, and Authenticity,” recorded September 23rd, 2021, Jyoti shares her remarkable wisdom on the Kogi prophecy, the power of prayer, and the necessity to align with our authenticity and personal truth. According to the Kogi prophecy, we are collectively moving through the time of the great cleanse that will last 13 years, with the great ending falling into the beginning in 2026. What is breaking through is based on Original Principles of heart, reciprocity, collaboration, unity, and all life that is sacred. As Mother Earth goes through an evolutionary process, we need to honor Her and realign with Her Original Instructions given to us by Her Original Peoples. Jyoti talks about the importance of staying in the present moment, sitting with nature and deeply listening, and being committed to our individual awakening.
In Episode #56, June 6th, 2022, Jyoti Ma and Mondahis Bastisa teach their wisdom on the Original Principles. According to Otemi-Toltec Elder Mondahis Bastisa, a world guided by Original Principles is not just possible – it is inevitable. In relation to their work at the Fountain and the Mother Earth Delegation for United Original Nations, they speak about how generosity and giving back to the Earth, Nature, and Original Peoples is much needed, and more valued than taking and accumulating wealth or profit. They point out that all life and nature’s elements, including the water we drink and the air we breathe, is equally valued and are alive. This is not only a deeply held prayer and a vision for the future, it is how Original Cultures and Peoples have lived in balance with the Earth since the dawn of time, guided by Original Principles.
