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“…
18 = Chuluamahdah-hey (Karma Masters)
The Chuluamahdah-hey are the keepers of our Book of Life and represent the number 18. They are the magickal teachers and work with pure magickal energies such as the ten Magickal Laws to create your everyday (tonal) physical world.
The Book of Life is the place where our sacred images for this lifetime are stored or recorded. These images are all the mirrors that we chose, out of which and within which we reflect ourselves. They give you the teachings you have asked for in this life in order to grow and evolve. These sacred images are the karma and dharma which we are dealing with in this lifetime.
In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, karma is lessons or patterns we have repeated from one lifetime to the next. They are in our lives to learn from. Karma is readily identifiable because it often translates as pain. When we change the pattern, we will experience a different outcome and … hopefully … pleasure or happiness. In other words, we will experience dharma.
Our elders teach us that when you were in spirit, your greater self met with the Chuluamahdah-hey and discussed what lessons unlearned in other lifetimes you still needed to learn, and which ones you were wanting to learn in your next incarnation.
Next you decided on what parents, social, economic, political and religious settings to be born into that would give you the best chance to learn these lessons. All of these decisions and more were recorded in your Book of Life, which is only for this spirit personality living here on Earth in the present. (The collections of all of your lifetime lessons are known as the Akashic Records, which also include your sacred images.)
The Chuluamahdah-hey teach us how to break unproductive patterns through learning how to use chaotic energy. When you break these patterns, you change karma to dharma and pain into pleasure.
Isn’t it time for a little less pain and a little more pleasure in your life?
