The Dance of the Twenty Count: 13 Quetzal

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.

Thus far we have presented in each blog post, the numbers 1- 10, representing the powers that are the “so below“…the numbers that are related to this 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is green“…

As we discuss the upper numbers (11-20), we begin with the powers that are the “as above“…the numbers that are related to beyond this 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is blue“…

13 = Quetzal

13 represents Quetzal and is symbolic of death and change and death giving life. Quetzal is known in many cultures by many names. She is the Goddess Beauty, Goddess Nature and Death Mother. In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Elders have taught us she is the Daughter of the First Breath. Christians call her Blessed Virgin Mary. In Mexico, she is Virgin de Guadalupe, and Native Americans in North America call her White Buffalo Woman. Different names, same feminine energy.

Quetzal is Earth Mother, the spiritual consciousness of all plants. When we eat a plant, its physical nutrition is not all that feeds us. Rather, when we are eating a plant (3), it releases its consciousness or spirit (10), and that (3 + 10 = 13) is what gives us sustenance and nourishment.
