The Children’s Twenty Count is a way of perceiving the special qualities and “give away” of the sacred powers of the universe and relating them to the numbers 1-20. This provides a valuable mathematical system the describes the interrelationships of the powers to one another and forms the basic framework for all of the Sweet Medicine SunDance teachings.
The Children’s Twenty Count describes our world as we live in it, and the powers that influence us here in our attempt to establish interconnection, interreliability and interdependence with all things.
In upcoming posts, we’ll take you through each of the powers to introduce you to qualities, vibrations, and give aways of 1 -20 of the Children’s Twenty Count.

Let me sing to you the Song of the Twenty Powers within the Song of the Universe. It is like an Orchestra whose members have played together, since always. Each member of this Orchestra has its instrument, its sound, it light, its energy, its harmonic vibration called orende. Each has its giveaway to the collective sound, even though it has its separate and distinct sound.
Within this Orchestra called the Everything, there are twenty sections or parts, the Twenty Sacred Powers. This Everything Orchestra has a Great Spirit within every member and within every instrument, and how it plays the sound and songs of Beauty and Light is indeed a Mystery. This Great Mystery has existed since always and will continue for always, even as it is playing now… Let us listen, and see if we can hear our Song.
