While watching the disturbing live news footage of the 8.9 earthquake and subsequent damage as the tsunami rolled across the Japanese countryside, I was reminded of a prediction by the late Native American prophet Sun Bear, in his book Black Day, Bright Dawn, first published in the early 1990s. After discussing the coming “earth changes” (now evidently here), as well as providing a scientific analysis of trends in countries around the globe, Sun Bear provides a set of predictions about what various regions worldwide will suffer because of the earth being out of balance.

Regarding Japan, Sun Bear said:

For Japan I see many more earthquakes, some volcanic eruptions, and severe flooding. These, combined with industrial pollution and the damage that will follow earthquakes, will make the area a very difficult place in which to survive.

All of this will plunge Japan into economic chaos. Ultimately, I see Japan as a much smaller land area with very little evidence of its former development.

When I first read this book almost 20 years ago, I felt Sun Bear had really done an outstanding job in providing a short and general but logical and comprehensible analysis of numerous trends worldwide. As certain events have unfolded over the past two decades, I have thought of this book often. I believe it might be worthwhile to heed the warnings contained in Sun Bear’s book. In fact, I was so impressed those many years ago that I gave out at least a half a dozen copies of it. Obviously, Sun Bear is not the only person who has predicted that an earthquake and tsunami would eventually destroy Japan, but he was insistent that all of these calamities would occur basically in this generation. His book is certainly worth a look, which you can do both on Google Books and Amazon.

To reiterate, I point out this observation because, as I say above, I was impressed by Sun Bear’s logical analysis of not only what will become of Japan within our lifetime but also what he has said about many other places worldwide. Nobody’s claiming he had any supernatural powers. On the contrary, Sun Bear traveled to many places and studied their TRENDS, both natural and manmade, including such things as medical waste and so on. I blogged it because others may wish to read what he has to say about other places in the world, logical conclusions based on these trends. I should also mention that almost 20 years ago I met and talked with Sun Bear, during which time he stated definitively, “The earth changes are coming.” (As I understand it, there was some unpleasant controversy about Sun Bear, aka Vincent LaDuke, who died in 1992, but there’s nothing remotely untoward in this book of his, which remains valuable for the reasons stated above. His daughter, by the way, is famed Native American activist and Green party vice-presidential candidate Winona LaDuke.)

In the meantime, the cost to Japan and surrounding environs will be staggering, and we as compassionate members of the same human family must help them, which will also suffer their losses and strain our resources. Our goodwill goes out to the Japanese people and anyone else affected by this earthquake and the tsunami.

Tsunami swamps Japan after powerful quake

Large areas of Japan’s northern Pacific coast have been swamped by a devastating tsunami, engulfing entire towns following a major 8.9 offshore quake.

The meteorological agency issued its top-level evacuation alerts for the entire Japanese coast, warning of a tsunami of up to six metres.

Towns and farms around Sendai city in northern Japan are being engulfed by a tsunami, and a four-metre wave has swamped parts of Kamaishi on the Pacific coast.

Residents have been ordered to rush to high ground and stay away from the coast as tsunami can strike in several waves….
