Animal Medicine Monday – Grizzly Bear

grizzly-73505_1280-copy
Grizzly Bear is the Spirit Keeper that sits in the west of the Spirit Keeper wheel of animal totems.  They are the Keepers and Teachers of the Sacred Dream, called the “sleeper-dreamer,” who teaches us to know ourselves through introspection of the dream and teaches us to sleep dream and actualize our reality. A great dream interpreter, the grizzly bear teaches us how to survive turmoil and trauma. Teaches protection of home, loved ones and possessions. Teaches us to stand and walk tall: how not to give power away to tyrants and how to pace our physical body.

About the Red Lodge Longhouse Program
The Red Lodge Longhouse program is a year-long commitment to personal excellence and the impeccability of a Warrior. This program is for students who wish to develop ways of knowing how to connect with Spirit and how to live in harmony with fellow humans and nature. Through alchemy, sacred laws, magick and tools, the student gains freedom and enlightenment within their own path with heart.

The Intent and Focus of this First Year
First Year Red Lodge consists of six weekends and a ceremonial week-long in addition to personal study and opportunities for hands-on experiences and ceremonies. The first year program explores in depth the circular movement of the Wheels and Keys of knowledge of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.

At the end of this year, the student will be able to use these Wheels in their life, understand their connection to nature and how to make personal changes for the better. This program helps students to understand their movements through the Wheel of Life, to learn about their energy body, to stalk themselves and win the battle
of being “asleep” in life.

Red Lodge Year One is designed to allow the seeker or student to discover their path with heart and explore the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. It is an introduction to the “Great Work”, the inner journey to heal oneself and find the warrior within.

Freedom Streams of the 0-9 Law

mandala_1280

Today, we will explore the steps and dimensions within the 0-9 Law.

  1. First Dimension – FOCUS begins the law of attraction. Energy is present and attracts our attention.
  2. Second Dimension – SUBSTANCE exists when the attraction is focused. It appears within space. There is no definition, give-away or purpose at this point. It can be used for many reasons or purposes.
    For example, it is the raw material, like metal, out of which we make many tools and implements.
  3. Third Dimension – FORM occurs when definition and purpose are given to the focused substance.
    For example, a bar of steel becomes a crow bar. Pick it up and you can choose to use it as a weapon or a tool. At that point, impact is made.
  4. Fourth Dimension – DETERMINATION stands alone by itself. The nature of the impact has now been determined.
    The attraction will be seen at that moment as either positive or negative. The impact will be either creative or destructive and our challenge now is to determine what to do with it.
  5. Fifth Dimension – UNDERSTANDING occurs when there is no limitation between you and the energy. This is contrary to how most people define understanding. They limit the interaction so that they can gain “understanding”. If at the point of determination you do not have acceptance and tolerance of the action or thing, if you get into judgment or comparison, you will not have a true understanding of it. Instead, limitations are created to maintain the form of what is familiar and known. Understanding presupposes the process of clarification (assembling multiple viewing points), validation (cross-correlations, seeing if it is effective and is assimilated into our body knowing), and integration (Does the knowledge work? Can it be applied anywhere and at any time?)
  6. Sixth Dimension – IMAGINATION, with understanding in place, creates empowerment. Play with this word: “image a nation….I the Magi, within my sacred circle of empowerment”. At this Step, we must be willing to recognize all the faces of whatever is reflected to us as a part of us. In the Twenty Count, six is
    the place of the ancestors. If we are to have a proper understanding within our imagination to gain freedom from our pattern, we must be grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, brother, husband and wife (in both parts of the relationship, i.e., wife-husband and husband-wife).  Either now, before or in the future, we will dance all the faces of these reflections. Imagination is the extension of who we are outside of time and space.
  7. Seventh Dimension – FREEDOM is the process of life itself. This Step carries light which is life itself. It is the dream, our experience of the process of life, our desire to live (our spiritual sexual eros). Autonomous individual freedom is the most sacred of all gifts and occurs here at the seventh Step. In its finest form, this is the power of resurrection.

Once any process has reached the seventh Step of Freedom, it will naturally evolve into a new Pattern which will need Chaos to move it into Completion. Completion is the Step which will spin any process into its next evolutionary cycle.

8.  PATTERN is the summation of the first Seven Steps.
A new pattern has been created and it is that of dominion. If we express our freedom as an act of empowerment, we are always in dominion. If at the eighth Step, however, we make our pattern one of going back to some limitation of form, we will immediately create a pattern of reincarnation.  Each cycle is a Circle of Law as we are trying to gain knowledge of Sacred Law and the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. The greatest karma in any pattern of non-freedom is the separation from or destruction of our connection with the earth.

9.  CHAOS is the implosion and explosion of breath.
There are only two numbers in the world according to the Elders, 0 = creation and 1 = light.  Light will make nine movements from “0”. At the ninth movement it will return to itself without anything acting on it. Within the chaotic wave, energy movement is designed and choreographed and is always in absolute male/female energy balance.

10.  COMPLETION (sometimes called SOLUTION) is the expression of artistic originality into all forms of all states of consciousness. All the consciousness of minerals as holders; plants as givers; animals as receivers; and all states of consciousness of humans as determiners equal a sacred measurement of ten. Light is creating itself into all forms of all things. Thus the Step of Completion is both the end and the beginning — a new evolutionary cycle begins even as one completes itself. Obtaining solution on one level merely opens the door to the next level of challenge.

Freedom Streams of the 0-9 Law

staircase_1280

All energy moves in a cyclical sequence from 0-9 and thus ten Steps. These Steps provide the stasis or balance to all movement and process. It is the key to the structure of the universe and to how this universe defines itself.

Within the process of our life experience we go through Seven Steps at each movement. The eighth step establishes the new pattern, the ninth step moves it and then the tenth step signals a completion of one cycle and the beginning of the next stream of life.

These Steps match the Seven Dimensions of this universe through which light becomes life and gives life. The Seven Steps describe how energy moves through life in a constant and continuous cycle. The Seven Dimensions refer to the seven levels of existence and the potential levels of awareness of that existence.

Join us tomorrow for a description of the 10 steps!

Warrior Wednesday

Have goals, but never focus on them, for the Warrior’s focus is on the journey, which becomes the personal vision quest towards enlightenment. ~ SwiftDeer

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Plants

Grandmother Earth’s first children are the Sacred Plants and the Sacred Waters. These sit in the South. The Plants are singing the Songs of Trust and Innocence, the Songs of the Giveaway.  The Waters are singing the Songs of Carrying the Myths, of the Joy of having Pleasure within our Emotions in everything we do.

Animal Medicine Monday – Snake

snake_1280
Snake is the totem animal within Sun Bear’s Earth astrology that corresponds with Scorpio.

Snake, especially the rattlesnake, is the teacher of the nagual enemies of fear and death, protector of all the teacher plants and the healing herbs, and holds the secrets of spiritual sexuality, of Quodoushka. Snake, along with the raven and crow, is a teacher of the Twenty Count, in that the sigils of the Twenty Count and the four Worlds are carried on its back. Along with communicating telepathically with other animals, snake is the protector of women’s lodges, and warns when you are out of alignment with the plant and mineral world. Snake is also the keeper of alignment with Grandfather Sun as it sheds its skin yearly.  And they are very adaptive to their environment.

snake_1280Living snakes are found on every continent except Antarctica, and on most smaller land masses; exceptions include some large islands, such as Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, the Hawaiian archipelago, and the islands of New Zealand.  Most species are nonvenomous and those that have venom use it primarily to kill and subdue prey rather than for self-defense.

The Law of Absolute Interconvertibility

science-fiction_1280The Law of Absolute Interconvertibility, the second Magickal Law, states, “All forms of all things are potentially convertible into all forms of all other things. Time, space, energy, matter are not different things, but different levels of energy of the same things.” Every time light moves, it vibrates at another level and manifests itself in another form. This is the process of creation. Once something is created, light comes out of it and it becomes a focus of attraction. We will see how that goes from one ripple to the next ripple.
