It was over the Mother’s Day weekend when the White Buffalo herd had their new babies! Their were three white buffalo calves born in Central Oregon, bringing the herd to a family of fourteen whites and three browns. We have one more expectant mother yet to give birth.
It was a cold morning on the 7th of May, and our guys where coming over to help Charles and I do some work on the ranch. I walked over to say hi to the girls, and Miracle was immediately in my face and snorting. I looked up and Peace Pilgrim was lying on her side and moving up and down, and J. R. Spirit was born in less then a couple of minutes later. The baby was soon up, drinking and kicking. I looked at my cell phone and it was 3:00 p.m. J.R. Spirit was born with red with white hair around the eyes, feet, and ears. We did get a white one. I knew in a day or two we would have another bison. Once one comes, they all start coming .
We went to bed at midnight and were up at first light on the 8th. I got dressed and let the dogs out, and decided to walk down the hill even before having my morning coffee. And there’s Sunrise Spirit having her baby. I noticed it was about 7: 00 a.m. This baby was big, huge, and pure white! My heart stopped for a second, and I thought it might be an albino. But then I saw that the face had blue eyes and knew it was not .
I called Dena to let her know. It was a very happy Mother’s Day gift even thought it was hailing and snowing. A rainbow soon loomed over the mother and babies, making them look like fire Opals. It was named Opal Sunrise Spirit. Check out the enclosed picture.
I drove Charles to the airport around 11:00 a.m., and on the way back there were more rainbows around the ranch. Outside of the ranch it was snowing, and as I walked around the pen this second white baby was trying to eat and drink, and its mother just looked at me as if to say, “Kids will be kids.”
The next day was the 9th, and just before dusk at 7:00 p.m. I was taking some apples and pears down to feed to the girls . Miracle Moon, who is the lead mother of the herd, was have her baby. I thought that it might be a long night, and it was. Miracle was doing everything that she could to keep her baby awake, while being watched over by a waxing quarter moon and a very cold night.
Even though we knew that miracles had already happened, we thought we needed a plan to be on the safe side in case the mother couldn’t get her milk to her newborn. I had a bottle waiting to be mixed in case we needed it. I decided to take my car and sleep down by the pens, as there were recent coyote and cougar tracks in the area.
The 3rd calf named Silver Spirit brings another wild story in the night. But what else would you expect with white bison? I prayed all night to I any helpers I could think of. I prayed to White Buffalo Calf Woman, Christ, my dad, Jim Riley, angels, any sensible E.T.’s who might be in the neighborhood, and even my wolf Buddy.
I was afraid the baby was not going to suck after about 8 hours . I looked up at the moon. I was tired and tears started flowing down my cheeks, and a silver light passed down from the moon and flew through the night sky and into the area where the babies were and disappeared.
Now I have been a cow girl, and I have been watching the night sky for over 35 years. I have seen falling stars, meteors, and even satellites and planes. But I have never seen a silver light. It looked like a large silver dinner plate and it moved slowly, then faster, with no sounds or tail lights, and then it was gone. I looked at the mother and the new baby and they were ok. The baby got up and walked around. Later in the morning I saw it drink.
The new families seemed to be doing great. They were eating well, and the calves were beginning to nose around and greet one another. And now we are still waiting for Big Mama to have hers.
The winter has finally shown signs of spring. The big boys are beginning to show their strength to each other. The grasses are coming in, and life begins anew for our growing white buffalo family. It’s a good day on the White Buffalo ranch.
If you would like to support these white bison, please make a donation. You can also buy one of our Hiawatha Big Medicine blankets. We only have a limited supply of our blankets left. They were made using the 2010 shed from these buffalo. Please call us at: 541 323 1885,

Our planet and all life forms are undergoing transformations very fast as we ramp up to the massive shift of consciousness in 2012. We will all have more stability through these times if we stay tuned to the new energy patterns of Earth and the cosmos as they change. 10-10-10 Activation Event
Stand up, shoulders back, brush yourself off and know yourself assured in the victory of light… it is time to celebrate! Our sleeping Splendor has awakened and we now advance into a brand new harmonic and focus of light activity.
This Equinox, September 22, inaugurates the Grand Opening of the PATH OF THE BECOMING!This is a new, awe inspiring journey of resurrection, the raising of the human self into our full glory as children of the Most High God. We, the Christed ones, shall soon walk upon this Earth in the full mantle of our illumined Presence and radiant expression of Divine-Human Perfection.
The clarion call has sounded throughout the multi-universe for a Great Gathering of the Flames in a grand convergence to the Earth this Equinox to unveil new dispensation in support of this transition. Through this full moon Cosmic Ray focus and time portal of incredible power and amplitude, we are directly experiencing initiation from the heart of Mother-Father God into The Great Becoming!
The Autumnal Equinox this year is September 22 at 11:09 PM EDT. The Full Moon in Aries is peaking on September 23 at 2:18 AM PDT.
New Moons and Full Moons, solstices and equinoxes are already very powerful doorways for celestial energy in the unfolding of the year. This Full Moon coincides 6 hours apart with the Autumn Equinox for the Northern Hemisphere and puts the spotlight onto a cardinal grand cross with eight oppositions and fifteen squares. There is a lot of tension, friction and challenge for us to grow beyond our fixed ideas and limiting beliefs. Each one of us is called upon to take steps to grow and expand, transform and rise from the ashes like the phoenix in mythology.
How Will You Handle This?
As with all transiting celestial events it depends on how they fit into your personal horoscope and which of your structures are triggered to tell about the personal impact it will have for you. If this Full Moon or any planet involved in the Grand Cross is activating one or more of your personal planets in your chart, you will feel it. Your world might be shaking and it is scary. Astrology can help you tremendously to understand and take active steps to evolve and grow into the direction which is asked of you.
And remember your personal journey is part of the future of mankind. How you proceed in your life with your life themes will set the tone for people around you, will impact your family and your friends. Some of you will be role models for others because of the big challenge you might have survived in a good way.
Moon Node and Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto has turned direct again September 13 and is moving on in Capricorn. The Moon Node is in a wide conjunction with Pluto. Whenever Pluto is involved deep transformation is demanded in the sign and house it shows up for us.
Pluto in Capricorn is reflecting the depth of self honesty we have to face relating to all matters of the state, politics, economy and society at large. Pluto brings to light and collapses the hidden structures of domineering and abusive power. I believe that is a good thing! We do have a chance to move into the direction of the Moon Node with his lesson of responsibility and accountability. With the involvement of Capricorn or Saturn the benefit of those lessons require hard work and effort and don’t come easily.
We have to apply ourselves to the best of our abilities and persevere in the application of our highest aspirations. You have a special gift to give and you are part of the monumental changes happening all around you. And of course in the end it is all about waking up to your true nature and embracing the divine in yourself. Many spiritual teachers of our times like Eckart Tolle, Byron Katie, Almaas, Neil Donald Walsch, or the Dalai Lama are helping with their specific wisdom and point of view.
But the goal is to be so tuned in to your own inner divine guidance that you will be able to live a full life from that inner place and become your own teacher. I truly believe that this is what this whole transformation and the 2012 land mark is about. Each on of us needs to raise our personal consciousness.
The transition into the Golden Aquarian Age is a process of conscious individuation to a higher state of consciousness contributing and creating a new way of life.
I hope you will spend a splendid Equinox in the company of your friends and like minded souls. Use the power of this time quality to set your intentions for your personal life as well as your prayers for Mother Earth and an easy transition into the new level of consciousness rising.
Aloha and many blessings for your journey, Shakti.
