Here is the Archived show featuring Bobby Runningfox:
Bobby Runningfox knows first hand what it’s like to live a life of pain and addiction. To recover from his childhood traumas at the hands of his abusive father he self-medicated with drugs and alcohol before he had a near-death experience. While working as an electrician in the Navy he was electrocuted. He went into the light and angelic voices came to him in the form of energy. They told him he must return to his body and begin a life of helping and healing people, showing him people of many races that he had not even met yet.
His uncle took him under his wing and taught him how to work with Native American medicine and techniques, including dancing with rattlesnakes. One of these techniques allows people of his tribe to live as long as three hundred years.
Bobby says his life purpose is to help people understand how beautiful and wonderful they are so they can change within themselves, healing not only themselves but their families, the community and the Earth.
Bobby compares how the Australian Government is treating the indigenous people in his new adopted homeland on the Gold Coast of Australia to how the early colonialists treated the Cherokee Tribes.
Just like the Stolen Generations of Indigenous Australians colonialists in his American birthplace were in the habit of stealing the children and putting them in Christian Residential Schools and employed cavalries riding up to Medicine Men and wisdom keepers of the Tribe shooting them on the spot, he describes how dedicated traditionalists have had to dig deeply within their own ancestral DNA to find and carry on that wisdom for the current generation.
Bobby shares his wisdom eloquently with a very important message for us all, that if we don’t come back into our hearts and in connection with the Earth herself that all will be lost, but it’s not too late to turn back the wheel of complete destruction, we just need to realise that we’re all one and start living in harmony again with the natural world.
