This is a:
In 1992 in Portland, Oregon while on a book tour, Victor Villaseñor had a Vision gifted to him by his grandmother, Doña Margarita, who came to him in a DreamVoyage and in that Vision, his mamagrande instructed him to take Our National Celebration of Thanksgiving, where Native Americans and Europeans ate in Harmony and Peace together, and go global in the Spirit of LoveAmor, celebrating our differences and creating 52,000 years of World Harmony and Peace and Abundance for All!
A life-changing dream…
I’d been on a book tour for over 30 days. I was exhausted. My 80 year old mother had had to mortgaged her home, her last possession in all the world, so we could buy back the rights from my New York publisher, who’d wanted to rename Rain of Gold, Rio Grande, and call it fiction. But my mother and father’s story wasn’t fiction. It was real, and so as a united familia, we’d walked out of a potential million-dollar deal, and we’d gone with a little university press out of Houston, Texas called Arte Público for $1,500 that had no sale force and had never published a hardback book before.
And I was sound asleep when suddenly, I saw myself flying with a flock of noisy joyfully cackling snow geese, looking as bright white as angels against the star-studded night sky. We were coming over the top of pine trees, and to the left of me and to the right of me, I could see the large round beautiful eyes of the geese flying alongside of me.
And now as we came over the top of the pine trees to a long mountain meadow with a little stream running through it, the geese all around me began telling me that the big strong male goose, who was in front of Our V-Formation, wasn’t leading. No, he was following “infront”, and it was the mother geese and the children geese that were leading with their cackling sounds of joy and encouragement and thankfulness from behind.
I awoke, feeling so good! Mothers and children leading and big strong males following ‘infront’, and I was now told by my mamagrande that this was exactly what we, all of Humanity, had to start doing once again, and bring Hope, Harmony and Peace to All of Humanity around the Whole Globe!
Then I heard my grandmother say, “Get up and start writing all this. Right now!”
And I said, “But, mamagrande, I’m exhausted. I’ve hardly slept for weeks.”
“And wasn’t I tired and exhausted when I gave birth to your father?” she said to me. “And wasn’t I tired and exhausted when we came north from Los Altos de Jalisco to the Texas border, and yet I’d get up in the middle of the night and run to hide mi familia before the canons of the Mexican Revolution began firing? YOU GET UP RIGHT NOW AND START WRITING! And you will have this book completed by sunrise!”
“But mamagrande, I’m not a fast writer. It took me 16 years to write Rain of Gold.”
“So, then, stop talking, get up and start writing! Because you see, when the big strong male geese follow ‘infront’, they break the wind so that then us, mother geese, and young geese can use 30% less energy to keep up, and the time has come for women and children to once more start leading and for big strong brave heroic men to follow ‘Infront’. And by doing this, there will be no more wars and out-of-balance aggressive male energy leading us. For we, the women and children will be leading from behind with balanced, compassionate, and heartfelt LoveAmor, and you, Our Hollow Bone! Our Empty Vessel for receiving and giving! Start writing for we are coming through you with the Full Force of Our Entire Universe!”
Well, what can I say? I stopped talking. I stopped thinking. Let go, and this book came pouring through me in just One Night. And this little book is Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving, and it is Our Angel Guide for bringing us all together as One Race, Our Human Race, and Globally Celebrating Our Differences, and hence, Creating a World of Hope and Trust, Harmony and Peace, and Healing Miracles, plus Abundance for All! For we are All, All, All Familia! And it is Our Ancestry, Our Loved Ones on the Other Side of Living, who Guide us, 24/7, and especially when we are asleep and DreamVoyaging.
Our First Locations
Since my Indigenous mamagrande from Oaxaca, México told me that Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving was about taking Our U.S. National Celebration of Thanksgiving, where Native Americans and Europeans ate in Harmony and Peace together, we decided to take Our First Celebration to Spain from where Columbus had come, and inform the King and Queen of Spain that we were coming to plant a Snow Goose Global Native American flag on their soil.
And for them, the Queen and King, to be prepared to kneel down with us, and ask Papito Dios God for forgiveness for all the atrocities that Columbus committed, and prepare Spain to rise up, this time, with Compassion of HeartCorazón and Vision of AlmaSoul, showing the whole wide world the Greatness of the True Spanish Spirit.
We called the Spanish Ambassador here in the United States and told him about my book tour all across the U.S., and that I was inviting people from everywhere, so for him to inform the Queen and King, that we were all coming, so they could get ready to be forgiven, for having sent Columbus in the name of greed and conquest to the New World.
But the ambassador of Spain went berserk, saying that this was an outrage. No one asked the King and Queen to kneel.
“I’m not asking!” I said. “I’m a Hollow Bone! An Empty Vessel! And I am being Guided by both of my Indigenous mamagrandes and Papito Dios God! So give them this message! It’s not for you or me to question!”
“But you’ll need permits,” he said, starting to feel very unsure of himself.
This was when I yelled at him, “Did you have permits when you sent Columbus to rape and conquer the New World? Look, I’m on a book tour with my best seller Rain of Gold, going all across the whole United States, and in every State, every city, every bookstore, every university, I’m inviting everyone to join us! So who knows? There may be 1,000’s of us, or 10s of 1,000s of us, or maybe even millions of us coming, so you tell the Queen and King to get prepared to be forgiven! And to also get ready to give back all the gold they stole. For this gold needs to be used over the next 500 years in helping to educate Native children worldwide!”
“Can you send me a book?” He asked.
“Absolutely not!” I yelled! “Go out and buy your own book! You didn’t bring anything, but killing weapons and disease to our New World, so I am not giving you anything!”
“Can you send me a copy of the your itinerary and the cities that you already been to?”
“No! You just tell Queen Isabel to get ready because we all know that she is the real leader of Spain and not her husband,” and saying this, I hang up.
Well, did we go? Of course, and it’s all documented in our little book.
Our Second Celebration was at Plymouth Rock, where we got an endorsement from the City to go worldwide with Our Snow Goose Global Thanksgiving Celebration. And since then, we’ve been celebrating Our Global event at Ranchito Villaseñor in Oceanside, California, and over a 1,000 people come every year.
It’s been a potluck with free music, and kids wearing oversized white t-shirts and getting their faces painted like Angels. And perfect strangers meeting each other and saying, “You are another me, and I am another you,” looking into each others eyes, the gateway to Our Souls, then touching foreheads and smiling, feeling so very good deep inside! Some families have been coming almost every year and they tell us that they get so high and full of hope and trust that the rest of their holidays are done in a whole new beautiful heartfelt way.

And this is what we are doing, bringing back to Life, la Vida, Our Miraculous Person we each have deep within us.
You see, without alcohol, without drugs, people get SUPER HIGH ON BEING GRATEFUL AND GIVING THANKS! Just imagine the COLLECTIVE SPIRALING ENERGY of 12 people, of a 1,000 people, of a 100,000 people, of a 100 million people, not complaining, not talking about sports and shopping, politics and religion, and imagine that spiraling energy becoming a tornado! A hurricane! A 300 feet tidal wave shooting around the world with all of Our United Angel Snow Geese LoveAmor Energy. Smiling! Dancing! Laughing with Carcajadas! Making music! With clapping hands! Singing voices! Drums! Trumpets! Fiddles! Accordions! Guitars! Garbage lids banging together! Dogs barking! Cats meowing! Children shouting! What ever!
