My name is Rick Barraza my friends know me as Zenergy I have been Healing myself of Cancer for the past 4 years I’m seeing light at the end of the Tunnel. The Journey has been intense with many obstacles to overcome along the way . It began in Nov 2016 as a visionI had as I was driving out of the gate at Oceti Sakowin Camp at the Pipeline Prayfest to block the Oil pipeline that was to cut through Lakota Burial Grounds and cross under the Missouri River causing a high probability that it may leak and pollute the water supply for millions of people. I had been at the encampment for several months building a camp that would become the Heart Center of the movement as it was One of the only heated spaces and where most all meeting would be held and most social gatherings.
As I was driving out the Gate I turned to Moonshine and told her and the other two women in the Bus aka. White Buffalo Woman that I just had a vision that I would be transmuting all the trapped energy in the Throat Chakra of all indigenous Peoples. Over the next year it grew to be All Life on Earth that we could all speak ourtruth and be heard. At the end of the year I felt a lump in my throat and over the next few months a lump on the side of my neck appeared I decided to go to Seattle where my children lived as they were both young adults now. I had raised them from 1and 2 mostly as a single parent. I wanted to tell them of my vision and that I felt it had manifested as throat cancer and that I would be treating it with natural medicines as I believed Western Medicine did more harm than good. I made my way back to Los Angeles attending Sacred Fires at Festivals I had tended Sacred Fire for over the past 10years . Including Lucidity. Enchanted Forest, Symbiosis Oregon Eclipse, Burningman Redlightning Power of Prayer 2017 . When I returned to Los Angeles I saw an Oncologist at UCLA. He diagnosed me with Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Throat and Lymphatic System and told me I needed immediate surgery Chemo Therapy and Radiation Treatments . I told him I would be treating it alternatively and asked him how long he estimated me to live if I did not do his protocol he responded 12 to 13 months. So I now had a timeline I did a lot of alternativeprotocols over the next 8 months but theTumors continued to grow and I ended up in UCLA Intensive Cardiac Cancer Carein June 2018. I was given two choices stay in hospital under observation till I died or try near lethal dose of Chemo and try to shrink the tumors so I could have more time to cure my self of cancer with alternative ways. My first response was I will stay here till I die as I was not going to do Chemo. However my family and community pleaded with me to do the chemo saying “We need you Zenergy” I agreed to dothe Chemo but no radiation as I could notrisk being damaged and having to be served and not being able to serve others. The therapy began it made me very sick I lost 30 lbs in 14days now weighed 113lbs. I lost every hair on my body . The tumors were shrinking rapidly they sent me home as my insurance would not continue to keep me at UCLA and I had to do 5 more rounds of chemo as an out patient. After the treatments were complete I moved to a friends in Agoura Hills on Malibou Lake to a Tipi he had on his land here I could regain my strength and rebuild my Body. Two months later we were evacuated we quickly packed a few things and drove up to Fly Ranch in Nevada near where Burningman holds its yearly Gathering in Gerlach / Block Rock City. We had been planning to go there to install Solar Panels we had no WiFi there butwere confident our home would be spared. When we completed the job and returned to where we had WiFi service we disdiscovered everything we had was burned a 6 bedroom 5 bath house called the Lighthouse, my Tipi a friends Lotus Belle Tent an out door kitchen & bath all gone. My van and everything I owned all gone nothing but ashes left . We went straight toa place called the Mushroom Farm near Pescadero Ca. where we were welcomedto live for as long as we needed. The Tumors began to return a few months after we arrived there and I began my Therapiesagain of Alternative Medicines . About 6 months later I decided to go to Ashland Oregon where my good friend had built atiny home for me in his land to live in whenever I needed a place to be . I stayed there till Nov 2019 working on the land barefoot and usually naked in deep communion with Mother Earth. I received her medicine deeply however the tumors continued to grow and as the weather got cold and rainy I decided to head back to LA a dear friend and his wife had bought me a van so I could travel again. I arrived in LA and shortly after getting there received aphone call and was hired to be the grounds keeper on a Magical 13 Acres in Topanga Canyon and so a full Circle had been made as Topanga Canyon was where I livedwhen I began the Journey to StandingRock 3years earlier. I was strong enough to work but the tumors were still growing the one on my left Tonsil and the one on my neck. On Christmas Eve 2019 I heard Grandmother Ayahuasca call upon me to come sit with her. I had not had heard her call in 3 years, I got in my van went to where I had normally sat with her and to my ahhhmazment a Ceremony was happening and they were just beginning to drink the Medicina. I sat and drank my cup she took me straight to my Frequency Body and told me I knew what to do. I began doing Energy work on my Frequency Body releasing all low frequency energy and overflowing my Temple with Pure Love Frequencies moving music vibration up above where disease can exist. After awhile a woman attending the Ceremony came tome with Crystal Bowls and placed one at my Crown Chakra one at my Heart Chakra and One at my Sacral Chakra she began to tone them for an hour or maybe longer . Soon after I went into dream world while listening to the beautiful frequencies emanating from the instruments of the Musicians in the room . I awoke early asthe sun was rising I went to the patio over looking Los Angeles . I felt a strange sensation in my Throat and felt Something was wanting to come out I cleared my throat deeply and spit what I knew was the Tumor that on been growing on my left Tonsil into the Cup . I waited for all to awaken shared my story with them and took my Treasure to the emergency Room at UCLA they agreed to do a biopsy on the mass and examine my throat. They looked in my Throat and responded that there was not a tumor in my throat anymore and there was no wound. The lump on my lymph still remained I began taking low dose chemo and now it is all nearly gone. I now have the opportunity to buy White Buffalo Woman back as I had to sell her to raise funds Iwould love to be her guardian once again.iIf you can help any size donation would help me to purchase , restore her as she has sat most of the past 4years and I would like to refit her interior to be comfortable to travel and share my story and gifts of healing with along the way. I love you and All Life Deeply We are All One in This Together Much Love All Ways
