Adam DeArmon AKA Adam Yellowbird of Sedona
« on: June 03, 2008, 01:58:50 pm »
Got a request about him. He claims to be healer and "visionary religious leader."

At first glance he seems to be hosting multicultural gatherings. But like with many of these groups, the alleged elders are never even named.
http://www.earthdance8.org/about.htm

In one case he's working with a "spiritual tour guide" named Louis Delgado.

He's also appeared with outright frauds, like Jade Grigori, a Russian who claims to be both Siberian and a Pueblo Indian healer.

Did a music concert and film with Sonny Reyna.

"In Search of the Future
Concert and Film Screening
Chief Sonne Reyna’s Joyous Healing Songs from the Heart, with Sunny Heartley on Native American flute, and Adam Yellowbird on Native American drum. In Search of the Future: What do the Wise One’s Know?"

Notice that Reyna is listed as one of the "wise ones" along with Woody Vespra and "Sakina Bluestar of Sedona."

A white pagan doing what she believed to be NDN ceremony defended him here.

---------------

http://www.widdershins.org/vol11iss2/01.htm
Adam Yellowbird DeArmon, the founder of the Earth Dance, is a white man. His heritage is Jewish, though I understand that he trained with Lakota Sioux teachers. The Earth Dance itself has features reminiscent of the Sioux Sun Dance, but dancers don't pin themselves to the central tree, and unlike in many versions of the Sun Dance, people of every religion and nationality may dance.

My understanding is that when Yellowbird had his vision of the Earth Dance, he prayed with it a long time and took it to his teachers for confirmation before doing any work to manifest it. Nevertheless, Yellowbird shows up on at least one "plastic shamans" Web site as a white man trying to present himself as Native and make a profit."

this man is not native. he is a fake

Adam Yellowbird has been adopted by the Lakota tribe and has been taught their ways. He has recieved the message from Great Spirit to teach these ways. He is white, but I believe he is helping greatly with the teaching of these important things. I don't know if you believe in re-embodiment, but he is the reincarnation of "Yellow Bird." I, too, was once born in the Yakima tribe and I claim that heratige for myself as "Yakima" Lee. It is our wish that the world will benefit from the teachings.

Bridging the Americas

Peruvian Prophecy states that all the Americas were once united by a common spiritual tradition and leader, and that they will be again. The Americas were anciently united as Amaruca or Ameruca, meaning "Land of the Serpent" during the time when the serpent was the universal symbol of mystical wisdom and spiritual power.

One legend states that North and South America were named after a culture bearer known historically as Aramu Muru or Amaru Meru, the "Serpent Meru." Aramu Muru came from the ancient continent of Mu with many power objects including the powerful Solar Disc that had previously hung in an important temple in his homeland. He also brought many sacred rites and symbols, like the Chacana (the "stair-step" cross) and after being taken by missionaries to all the four directions, served to unite the Americas into a homogenous spiritual culture. 

Legend states that Aramu Muru assisted many Native American tribes after they arrived in Peru during the time of the destructions of Mu and Old Red Land (Atlantis). He then united these tribes into a very advanced culture that proceeded to build many of the towering megalithic temples that still adorn the landscape of Peru today. Although most of us have forgotten our past connections, the spirit of Aramu Muru has never left us, and he continues to watch over all the Americas from his Illumination Temple located above Lake Titicaca.

Moreover, the great Solar Disc of Mu is also said to still continue to exist and is currently located on the bottom of the sacred lake. Since 1992, when Pachacuti or "World Transformation" anciently prophesied by the Incas first commenced, Aramu Muru and the Illumination Temple have made their presence known again and the Solar Disc has begun emanating powerful streams of spiritual light that will eventually unite the Americas and uplift the entire world.

Soon the prophecy will be complete; the Eagles (North America) will reunite with the Condors (South America) and the tribes will once again become one.

Article written by Adam Yellowbird for Manataka, April 2005.

ACTIVATION OF THE SEDONA LANDSCAPE TEMPLE
By Adam Yellowbird

Understanding and expanding the Earth Energies of Sedona...

We live in a time of profound changes. These changes occur on the level of our consciousness, but also with the Earth itself. There are many ways to look at these changes and there are many interpretations about what their cause(s) are. Even science begins to acknowledge that what is happening can no longer be seen as extremes of normal fluctuations. The Earth is in motion and the weather is erratic not only in faraway places but locally as well. In the winter of 2004/2005 there were several floods in the Sedona and Camp Verde area and Arizona had 6 earthquakes within one week (at the end of February/beginning of March 2005). The strongest had 4.6 on the Richter scale.

Many people pray and hold ceremonies hoping to prevent more big natural disasters, such as the tsunami of December 26, 2004. The ceremony to activate the Sedona Landscape Temple on April 24 is one of the worldwide activities to heal and balance the Earth to prevent these types of disasters. Of equal importance is the intention to activate the energy of the Sedona area to a more optimal state.

Whenever we pray and/or hold ceremonies it is helpful if we understand what actually happens during these activities and on what to focus our intention.  It also helps to realize that in the process we are not only healing the Earth, but also ourselves. We are intricately connected with the Earth.

The Earth “Source???
Connecting with the Earth was and is an essential part of spirituality in many ancient and Indigenous traditions. In these traditions spirituality is an essential part of their daily lives. The separation of science and spirituality in our Western culture has estranged most of us from the Earth. The Earth has become an object that is there to use.  We no longer consider her to be a living entity. We have forgotten that she is truly a “mother??? who provides us with everything we need on every level of our being.

What does Mother Earth provides us with? In the first place the Earth provides us with every atom in our body - either directly or indirectly - making us inseparable from the Earth.

Secondly, the Earth provides the electromagnetic environment we need to function optimally.  NASA discovered with the first astronauts, that we do not function without this field. The Earth also creates a special electromagnetic frequency that is important for us: the Schumann resonance frequency of 7.83 Herz. This frequency resonates with our brain activity in the lower alpha (relaxation and peak performance) and higher theta (deep relaxation, meditation and access to our unconsciousness). The Schumann frequency stimulates a broader functioning of our brain.  In addition this frequency helps us to connect with the subtle energies of the Earth.

The subtle energies are a third gift to us. These energies resonate and interact with our meridians, chakras and subtle energy bodies. On Earth we find those energies in lines, grids and vortexes. 

Vortexes, Lay Lines and Grids.
Many books have been written on Earth energy lines and grids. There are, however, only a few books on vortexes and all of them are about the vortexes in Sedona. This is quite remarkable, because vortexes exist everywhere. They are found where energy lines are, because almost all vortexes are found in connection with lines. We define a vortex as a place where energy goes in and/or out of a system. That system can be the Earth (vortexes), our body ( the chakras and acupuncture points) or the Universe (galaxies, black holes and white holes). According to science whenever energy moves it will move in a spiraling way, hence the name vortex (vertere (Latin) = spiraling).

There are many different types of vortexes. To a varying degree they all have an effect on us. From some we do not yet know what the effect is, but from others we now have quite a good idea. There are vortexes that resonate with our meridians. Others resonate with our chakras or with our energy bodies. There are grid systems with vortexes that hold our consciousness, the Christ consciousness and even other types of consciousness.

Although vortexes can be found everywhere it does not make Sedona less special. Sedona has more vortexes and a larger variety of them than any other place that I am aware of. When we compare a certain vortex with a similar one in Europe the one in Sedona has a diameter 5 times larger than the one in Europe revealing that the amount of energy in each vortex is very high. Sedona is truly “a place of vortexes???.   

Communication Lines
To understand the landscape temple of Sedona we need to mention one other type of lines, the communication lines. These lines are induced through human consciousness during certain activities. These lines appear between churches. They appear when we handle (charge) stones and place them in the landscape. They also exist between rocks with petroglyphs. The lines have a certain type of sub-lines that were named triads by researchers in England. Between churches and stones you usually find lines with 3 triads. Between stones with petroglyphs you may find lines with 5 triads. Between some of the larger ceremonial kivas we find lines with 9 triads. There exist even lines up to 12 triads. If we can create lines with 3 triads between churches and Jeanne (my wife) and I can create lines up to 5 triads with crystals, I wonder what state of consciousness (or maybe even what consciousness) can create lines with 12 triads?

The Landscape Temple of Sedona
The term Landscape Temple comes from the book “Sedona Sacred Earth??? by Nicholas Mann. Geomancy (Mann is a geomancer) looks at alignments and mathematical patterns of prominent features of the landscape. In this way he discovered in the Sedona landscape a 6-pointed (hexagram) and 5-pointed star (pentagram). He also discovered a couple of alignments, which are called ley lines. In addition he saw a snake and a bird in the outlines of the landscape. Initially skeptical I was surprised that I could indeed find a hexagram almost identical to the one Mann has drawn in his book. Each point was anchored on a vortex. The lines between the points were communication lines with 12 triads. This means they are induced in a very high state of consciousness. At the point near Steamboat Rock were 2 extra lines. In one of them the energy was flowing towards the star and in the other the energy was flowing away from it. The energetic center was close to where Mann indicated the center: just above Devils bridge.

I was, however, not able to find any lines indicating the presence of a pentagram. This does not mean that Mann is wrong. The potential for the formation of this sacred symbol may be present but not yet manifested as with the hexagram.

Consciousness and Earth energy activation
Adam Yellowbird has had a vision that he gives form via Earthworks and through The Institute for Cosmic Awareness. He organizes ceremonies together with Elders of many traditions to balance and heal Mother Earth. In his vision the hexagram and pentagram are very important. The hexagram represents the balance of the masculine and the feminine. The pentagram represents “man???.  He felt guided to organize a ceremony to activate the pentagram and the hexagram in the Sedona landscape.  As Sedona already has so much energy what will the effect of such a ceremony be?

I believe that every ceremony with focused intention will have an effect that goes beyond our current understanding. This ceremony will be a contribution to the healing and balancing of the Earth. In addition there will be a localized effect that is very important for Sedona. Based on research it has become clear that none of the vortexes and lines are optimally activated. Increasingly many types of human activity deplete the energy even further.  Activation on the scale as is planned will stimulate the activation of many vortexes and lines in Sedona. Several vortexes and lines will be measured before and after the ceremony to study the effects the ceremony will have on them.

One of the most interesting aspects will be the pentagram. Will a group of dedicated people be able to physically create a pentagram in the landscape?  Will they be able to induce lines forming a pentagram with points anchored on vortexes? If that will happen it will change the energy of Sedona and increase the experiences of those who will visit these areas. Who would not like to participate in such a wonderful and challenging event?

The activation of the Sedona Landscape Temple will happen on April 24, 2005 starting at 9.30 am. For information call The Institute for Cosmic Awareness (www.ica8.org) at 928-646-3000 or email info@earthdance8.org

No, I didn't do all this research today; I had it filed away. I was researching something else and stumbled on Adam Yellowbird a few months ago. Although Yellowbird is involved with some legitimate people, he's connected to some questionable ones as well. Even some of the people who seem legit on the surface, have some questionable ties. It's surprising how much you can learn about a person by who their friends and associates are.

The real Yellow Bird lineage continues in a good way; it is not necessary for reincarnated wannabes to carry these names. Sounds like this guy has been reading too much Harvey Arden and hanging out in Sedona.

You have a problem with my research, dualbuster? The pages speak for themselves. This thread is definitely not a "cheerleading campaign".

It's funny that you would quote a 2009 article from Manataka. Reply #4 above is a 2005 article by DeArmon published in Manataka. What a difference a few years makes. But then, I wouldn't put a whole lot of faith in anything I read in Manataka, if I read Manataka.

I suggest strongly you take any personal dislikes you may have towards anyone at the forum to private email or IMs. Or better yet, drop it entirely and focus on the real issues.

DB, you probably will be best served by spending a lot of time using the search function, as well as reading a thread before jumping to conclusions. I'm sure DeArmon and his followers certainly wouldn't think we "cheerlead" for him. Pretty much every exploiter NAFPS has researched has come after us, often repeatedly.
