The Dance of the Twenty Count: 17 Dream Teachers

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“…

17 = Kachina-hey (Dream Teachers)

The Kachina-hey are called dream souls or dream teachers because they work with pure archetypal symbols, sigils and images through the place of the dream in the fifth dimension. They work with us in our sleeping dream and teach us through symbols and sigils about our patterns so that we may understand them better. The Kachinas are teachers of natural laws, science and mathematics. They are great awakeners of memory. In the Christian tradition, they are equivalent to the archangels.

The Kachina-hey also teach us how to go through fear to get to the other side of what that fear is really teaching us. The story goes that as a part of a young boy’s initiation into manhood in old tribal times, his uncles, old brothers and father would dress up as Kachinas and kidnap the young boy, taking him to the woods, surely evoking fear in the young boy along the way.

Once in the woods, they took off their masks, and the young boy could see that it was only his father, brothers and uncles, thereby teaching him that what he thought was something to be afraid of was nothing but his closest relatives. A very good reminder for us all that “we have nothing to fear, but fear itself.”

16 = Achlohtah-hey (Enlightened Masters)

16 represents the Achlohtah-hey (pronounced: Ak-a-loh-tah-hey). “Ach” means to see, “lotah” to know and “hey” to be awakened. The Achohtah-hey are our spiritual ancestors in the form of the enlightened masters who have walked on the Earth in an enlightened state as earthly masters and achieved full enlightenment while they were actually in physical form.

Enlightenment is remembering how to tune ourselves as an instrument into a harmonic resonance with the song of the Universe.

The Achlohtah-hey work with us through the spirit world. They stay in their luminous form and work with our psychic-kinetic and electromagnetic energies. They are the teachers of actualization and how to dance our sacred dream awake.

They teach us how to assume authority by taking  our own power, and teach us that even for us everyday humans, enlightenment is indeed possible.

15 = Souls of All Humans

15 is the souls of all humans and is all matter. It is our collective soul, the universal mind, collective unconscious into universal consciousness. In other words, it is our own individual consciousness and unconsciousness becoming the collective consciousness, moving into the state of universal consciousness.

Everything that  exists knows of its alignment and interconnection to the everything EXCEPT humans. We have been taught in the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path that we are here to learn our connection to the Wheel of Life. The Taoist speak of it this way: they say when a blade of grass is cut, the entire universe shudders… that is how connected we are within the souls of all humans and all matter. All matter is us. Everything that exists is a part of us. Hence, 15 is the key to knowing our own true nature spirit personality.

According to our Elders, we humans are a thought of the Great Spirit in its attempt to see itself in all of its many reflections. Our Elders say that the moment a human is willing to look through its brothers and sisters, the Great Spirit will see the universe and will know itself.

14 = Coatl (The Spirit of All Animals)

Coatl as 14 is the spiritual energy of all the animals and is also known as Earth Father. In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, 14 is called Sweet Medicine (another name for animals) and Seven Arrows. 14 is also known as the Son of the Perfect Dream. To the Christians, Coatl is known as the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit. Remember, it was a dove that came into the crown chakra of Jesus after He was baptized.

Without exception, each of the major religious traditions around the world used their animal totem (the image and symbol of an animal) to denote this presence of the passing of knowledge: the Dove for Jesus, the Eagle for the Native Americans, the Tiger for Buddha, the Crane for Lao Tzu. In our own Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, we take our name from all Sweet Medicine animals. Shamans use Coatl in their shamanic journeys to bring about healing, using the spirit of the animal to heal the spirit of the human.

14 is also our intellectual instincts and our feelings. Most importantly, 14 is the key to being human. It is the teacher of what we call the 5 huaquas of being human: health, hope happiness, harmony and humor and our ability to be here now.
