How Andrée came to connect with Hayehwatha
Even though Hayehwatha was on earth a long time ago, his presence is felt today. If you go on the internet you will see many websites by the Iroquois / Haudenosaunee people where Hayehwatha is featured as one of the people who created the Iroquois Confederacy and brought peace to those nations.
“This is the story of how I came to be connected with Hayehwatha. I see Hayehwatha in the sky, in the spiritual planes within and beyond the universe. Hayehwatha incorporates fully into my body and he speaks through me.”
It is a big responsibility to provide the possibility for Hayehwatha to return to earth while he remains within the spiritual. Initially I did not want to become a Medium for Hayehwatha, but I see the importance and uniqueness of what Hayehwatha is doing now to bring about peace on earth.
The Story Begins with Brazil
I live in California. In 1996 I became involved in a spiritual group from Brazilian that was in California at the time. It was through their tradition that I was first introduced to Hayehwatha. I went to Brazil every year for 12 years to learn their spiritual traditions.
One aspect of their tradition is to teach people how to connect with the spiritual plane that exists within the universe, how to establish a relationship with spiritual beings that exist in the spiritual plane, and how to incorporate those spiritual beings so that they can transmit their wisdom, love and light to help other people.
Tradition of the Orixás
The Brazilian tradition is similar to many Native American traditions in that they view the universe made up of elemental forces, energies, that have basic spiritual qualities of fire, earth, water and air. Within the Brazilian tradition these qualities of energy are called Orixás. There are 2,684 known qualities, which are further simplified into 386 qualities, then 68, then 16 qualities. Today they work primarily with the 16 qualities. For more information on the Orixás, click here
In the Brazilian tradition, when the spiritual beings make a connection with an individual, they come on earth through one of these qualities.
The Orixá Xangó
In 1996 when when one of the Brazilian teachers started to work with me, they confirmed that the spiritual being who wanted to connect with me was working in the line of Xangô, an element of fire. At that time they created an opportunity for that spiritual being to connect with me. I started to spin and spin. I could perceive a presence from the spiritual plane working with me and moving my body.
In December 1996 I went to Brazil for the first time to attend a workshop. The first night I slept very little and was restless the entire night. Throughout the night I kept seeing an Indian in white. He was very wise with a full headdress of white feathers.
When I returned to California, one night I felt this Indian’s presence, he was speaking Native American words and he told me he is a Chief and in the spiritual world he teaches Chiefs how to be Chiefs.
One month later I felt compelled by this Indian to go to the local library. I was not drawn to any of the books in the adult section so I went to the children’s section. I immediately, randomly, picked three books and took them home. The first book that I opened I went to a page that had the story of an Iroquois Indian. At that moment I knew I was reading about the Indian who had made a connection with me. That was the first time that I knew his name is Hayehwatha.
Later that month I saw the presence of another Native American Indian in my home. He had come to check me out. I recognized him as Tadaho (Adadarho/Tadadaho).
Education regarding Hayehwatha
I grew up in California during the 1950’s. My education included only a little history of the Native American Indians. I had read the Song of Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, but I was not familiar with Hayehwatha of the Iroquois Indians. I later found out the two were quite different.
In 1998 I felt Hayehwatha requesting me to research his history, so I went to the Internet. It was “an eye opener” what I saw and what I learned. I learned about Hayehwatha, the Iroquois Confederacy, our Forgotten Fathers and the Wampum Beads. On this website those materials are referenced and links are provided.
A few months later Hayehwatha showed me how he looks now in the universe, ceremonial clothes of white leather with fringes. Hayehwatha also showed me his pipe. The pipe is white with some turquoise and coral pieces. He again showed me his full headdress of large white feathers.
Initially Hayehwatha appeared to me in several ways – Sometimes Hayehwatha appeared as a younger Indian ready for dance – strong with vitality. Other times Hayehwatha appeared as very old and wise with the regalia of the white feathers. His presence is always very powerful and all knowing. His awareness is broad like the sky.
In 1998 I was introduced to one of the songs, called Pontos, from the Brazilian tradition. For me, it was another moment of authenticity. One of the Spiritual Beings that had made a connection with their group many years ago was an Iroquois Indian. This Being came to support the development of their group. They created a song for him.
Noriquá Auê Auê Noriquá
Also in 1998 one of my friends, who collects Native American Indian art called to tell me she had some new items. I asked her if she had any pipes. She had a photo of two pipes. I went to see them. One of pipes looked exactly like the pipe that Hayehwatha had shown me and it was an Iroquois pipe! For me, this was a moment to verify that my experiences with Hayehwatha are true.The pipe my friend showed me, I now have. The pipe belonged to Chief Oskenonton, who was born May 27, 1886 into the Bear Clan of the Mohawk tribe in Canada. His family sold the pipe in an estate sale.
During this time, my ex-husband, Lew Leonard, came to California to say “goodbye” because he had cancer and he knew that he was going to die (which happened later that year). While I was reading to Lew from the book, Concerning the League, the room filled with light and the Peacemaker, Deganawidah came into the room. Deganawidah told me that I will be incorporating both Deganawidah and Hayehwatha, and he said that I would incorporate him (Deganawidah) only on very special occasions. After that experience Lew suggested to start a non-profit organization for Hayehwatha to be called the Hayehwatha Research Institute.
Hayehwatha’s Methods of Connection
In the drawings of the Orixás, Hayehwatha expands my awareness so that I am outside our galaxy looking across the universe. From across the universe Hayehwatha projects images and I draw them. Hayehwatha says the drawings serve the same function as the wampum beads – as an invitation – an invitation to draw a person into the universe, to experience and understand the natural laws of the universe.
The most dramatic connection is a “full body incorporation” whereby the light, energy and personality of Hayehwatha enters my body and uses my body and mind to move, think and speak. Those are the moments where Hayehwatha interacts with other people. Hayehwatha takes people on a meditative journey into the universe and beyond, to give them a greater understanding of life and to use the resources of the universe to bring peace on earth.
At this moment (2011) I know of no other programs providing this type of knowledge where people have their own personal experience of what Hayehwatha is showing them in the universe and beyond. It is very powerful and transformative for the people involved.
Mount Shasta Experience
When I was in Mount Shasta in 2001, Hayehwatha showed me a tall Evergreen Tree in the spiritual plane that has Power, Strength and is Steadfast. He showed me that one’s Will can transform with evolution and in time take on the proportions of Cosmic Will. Hayehwatha comes to earth through Cosmic Will to aid the evolution of humanity into the light while humanity is still on earth.
