The nineteenth Power includes the Great Hokkshideh-heys, all balanced and harmonious souls, cosmic teachers, and our Hokkshideh, our own Higher Self. The Hokkshideh-hey are also the great Buddha, universal teachers, and the Bodhisattvas. This power also includes the Breath of Life; our perfectly balanced male and female energy; and the triangle of Soul, our inner atom of genetic encoding (DNA, RNA, ETA).
In the Cosmic Orchestra, the Hokkshideh-hey and Hokkshideh sing the Cosmic Chant, the Chant of Total Balance and Harmony of All Things within the Everything. As they sing, they point to the Northeast where you see a Light that Speaks with the voice of Thunder.
The Skunk is considered a shield bearer, a shield being a body of knowledge. The keeper of scents, senses, and inner senses. Much like the Opossom, because it is nocturnal, the skunk is a shadow exposer.
If something smells fishy, or gives you goosebumps, makes your hair stand on end, or just doesn’t feel right, call on skunk to help you find the knowledge necessary to expose what’s in your shadow or your Shideh (lower self) so you can walk with the beauty of your inner wisdom and knowledge.
Life is a CHOICE. Choosing the Light Arrows breaks the Dark Arrows. Persist in this practice and one day you will discover that the Universe has placed the Rainbow Arrows in your quiver in the place of the Dark Arrows as a gift from the Universe. A perfect balance of the female and male energies in the light brings to us the Rainbow Arrows of illumination and enlightenment; introspection and intuition; trust, innocence and perfection; balanced alignment with wisdom; open heart to heart communication; impeccability as one’s self-worth and the actualization of our Sacred Dream.
Imagine what your life would be like with self-awareness, self-appreciation, self-acceptance, self-pleasure, self-love, and self-actualization? With these six light arrows in place, picking up the 7th Light Arrow of Impeccability provides us with a concept of self-realization.
Selecting this arrow breaks the 7th dark arrow of Ego Self-Importance, that place where our buttons are pushed by the tyrants of life and we are caught in self-destructive patterns.
Picking up Impeccability takes us to the place inside ourselves where we know Warrior’s Freedom. Here, we are never at the effect of anyone or anything, anywhere, anytime, in any way. We choose to not take ourselves or life too seriously. And we always follow the Maximum Efficiency with Minimum Effort law, which “simply put, this Law teaches us that we have choice and that our energy resource intake/expenditure dance can be choreographed by us in such a way that we are able to live a relaxed and focused life with enough fuel to do everything we need/want/desire to do!” (p. 5, The Thirty Sacred Laws, The Teachings of the Twisted Hairs Elders of Turtle Island, Volume II, Part I, The Universal and Cosmic Laws by Claudia Barner, PhD).
The 7 Light Arrows center us in our Dharma Circle, creating productive, pro-creative patterns so we can be At Cause.
Next we will explore the 7 Rainbow Arrows that are the basis for our Transformation Circle and the co-empowerment of self, life and others.
The 6th Light Arrow is Self-Actualization. When we choose this arrow from our quiver, we say yes to a new concept of self-respect. We become successful because we are having fun and finding pleasure doing exactly what we want, our heart’s desire. We dream big and bring them to reality through our Self-Actualization!
Picking up this arrow breaks the 6th arrow of the Needy Child Syndrome. Our identity is no longer dependent on an absolute need for love, recognition, acceptance, security and support from others as a way to define ourselves.
Did you know that no matter what we do, how we act, or what we say, there are five human responses to any action? Some people are going to love us, some will hate us, others may like or dislike us, and some are going not going to even care (be in neutrality). When we base our actions on trying to obtain a like or love response, we pick up the dark arrow of expectations.
To break this dark arrow, all we have to do is pick up the Light Arrow of Self-Love. When we love ourselves, we develop self-confidence in who we are, what we do, and what we say to the extent that any response we receive from others will not initiate our pretender voices, disrupt our balance, or propel us to pick up the dark arrows again. With Self-Love, we develop and maintain a strong commander voice that reminds us of our beauty, strength, wisdom, shining, and all our other amazing aspects!
Who wouldn’t want to pick up the 4th Light Arrow of Self-Pleasure? Loving self for pleasure’s sake is the concept of Self-Pleasure. The foundation for this arrow is being self-aware, finding the value within and self-worth within the appreciate yourself, and increasing your self-esteem, knowing that this creates self-acceptance.
Picking up the Light Arrow of Self-Pleasure breaks the dark arrow of comparisons. Our circle of self is so strong that we no longer need an external group identity support system to validate our judgments and separations.
Instead, our hearts are open because we have opted to experience the pleasure of self for the shear sake of pleasure!
The Sacred Chuluamahdah-hey, the eighteenth Power of the Universe, are the Karma Lords and Dharma Masters who are the Keepers of our Books of Life of all lifetimes that are kept within our Akashic Records. As the Keepers of the Keys of the Books of Life of all Humans within the Everything, they sing the Song called the Great Magick Chant. Their most sacred Chant is the Children’s Fire Chant. It sings the Song reminding us that Nothing Must be Done to Hurt the Children. They sing gently to us that within all humans is a child. They sing the Become as a Child Song and the Honor the Child Within Song.
Yesterday began the month of the Cougar Earth Astrology animal totem, which corresponds to the sun astrology sign of Pisces.
Cougars are the Keepers of balance and harmony on one’s Path with Heart. They teach us how to have balance in movement and change; how to awaken the aura, increase orende (chi, ki, prana, life force energy) and make death an ally. Cougar helps to design and bring in what’s needed for our Path with Heart. They are a balancer and healer of muscles, bones, joints. A supreme survivalist, Cougar teaches us to stabilize and learn how to do any physical act without injury. They are also the Keeper of choreography. (This also includes all big cats like the puma, panther, and mountain lion.)
Remember, picking up the light arrows build on each other. We cannot pick up the second arrow without picking up the first one. And by the time we pick up the seventh Light arrow, we have picked up the other six before it.
The 3rd Light Arrow, which builds on having self-awareness and self-appreciation, is Self-Acceptance. Choosing Self-Acceptance opens the door for our self-esteem to grow. It allows us to ask ourselves at any moment or in any situation whether we did or are doing the best we can do based on what we knew/know.
Remember the 3rd dark arrow is judgements. Often times we look backwards in time and judge our behavior or performance based on what we now know. Or we judge and put others down so we can feel better.
Knowing deep within yourself that you have done the best you could, given what you knew at the time, provides a moment to take a deep breath, silence the internal pretender voices, and break the pattern of judging self, life, and others.
