Cycles, Rules & Laws, Sacred Image

To know all the words, lyrics and melody of this Song we must turn to the Northwest, to the eighth Power, for this is the Song of the Circle of Law. At first, we may be confused. We must listen closely. There appears to be more than one Song coming from this place and there are many instruments that are being played by this Power of the Northwest and we see that they are really Rules and Laws. The sounds they make are those of the Sacred Image and Law Chants. Together they create the Rules and Laws or our Sacred Image or the Circle of Law Chant.

This really causes us to listen because we are beginning to hear the harmonics carried within the Southeast and blending with those of the Southwest. These are like whispers within the Sound of the Circle of Law Chant. Now we are really becoming awake and we begin to notice that we See the Sound within the Light and Hear the Light within the Sound! At first, this is confusing, but it seems to wake us up from the more common sleeping state. We begin to tune our instruments so that we can play in harmony with what we are experiencing. The longer we play, the more in tune we become! We begin to see and hear that within this Circle of Law Chant is our book of Life and all the Songs that we have ever sung, all the Music that we have ever played and all the Chants that will be our Dream of the Future Song. This is our Music that we play.

Grandmother Earth’s Cycles
South: Sunrise
The earth is in a phase of exhalation, breathing out.
This is the act of “catching of the spirit.”
Grandmother Earth is exhaling and being in the water and fluidity of self.

East: Midday
Here is the time of recuperation for Grandmother Earth.
Everything shifts and it is a “resting of the spirit.”
It is the time of day when the plant growth slows down, for they rest within the heat of the day.

North: Sunset
This is when Grandmother Earth begins her inhale.
You will oftentimes notice that the wind will blow stronger.
This is known as “seating the spirit.”

West: Midnight
This is when Grandmother Earth rejuvenates. She is healing herself.
It is in the moonlight that plants make their greatest amount of growth.
It is called the “calming of the spirit.”

We as humans have four times of change as well. However, they are a little different. You will notice that midday and midnight is where we have switched the East and West with Grandmother Earth’s movement. Due to society’s scheduling, most humans lose alignment with their inner change time. At midday, we need to go inward and rest our body lodge, here most people are working. At midnight during our fire time most people are sleeping. The strongest time for humans to do ceremony is between midnight and sunrise! It is naturally their active fire time.

“The sun teaches to all things that grow their longing for light,
But it is night that raises them to the stars.”
Kahlil Gibran

 

What is your favorite season?  Has it changed over time?  Does it have a relationship to the time of year you were born?

What is YOUR body knowing of the Sacred Law of Cycles and how does this energy dance with YOU?

We invite you to share your experience and relationship to this eighth Power of the Universe.
