Controlled Dreaming – Why Bother?

milky-way-1096815_1280

What exists in the third dimension (tonal reality) is a manifestation of the dreams that you create in the fifth dimension (nagual reality). Your Higher Self is always dreaming with your Lower Self to create the necessary forms, situations and events that you need in order to receive the growth experiences for this lifetime. In the fifth dimension, all things are possible, and all time —past, present, and future — is one and the same. Therefore, when you take control of your dream, you have more control over the events that take place in your daily life. Because all things are possible in the fifth dimension, the ability to access all knowledge is also possible. To do, this you must learn to “control the dream.”

7 Steps of Process – Completion

sunflowers-76119_1280At step ten is COMPLETION. Completion is the complete solution.

However, if you fail to negotiate Chaos, you will come to resolution. Resolution is a small response or a bandage cure for the situation. 

Successfully engaging and navigating with chaos and change, and coming to solution, will complete this spiral of the 0-9 Law and will land you at a new attraction or Focus.  A new spiral will begin…

Animal Medicine Monday – Bat

fruit-bat-1582189_1280

All life is energy with its own vibration signature.  This is also true of all communication.

Bat teaches us how to see sound with our eyes and helps us to see the energy vibrations of people and all life.  Bat also carries thought forms sent and received and is the keeper and communicator of the secrets of the transformation of substance.

7 Steps of Process – Focus

lake-1781692_1280

The first step is FOCUS. Whenever you bring your attention to an attraction, that attraction becomes your focus. This actually begins the law of attraction. Imagine walking through a meadow at the edge of a forest with a friend.  As you are walking, you notice a small yellow flower in the sea of tall grass.  About the same time, your friend notices a white swan swimming at the edge of the lake up ahead.  Each one of you were attracted to two different things, bringing your attention to it, which you then focus on.

Great Spirit organizes the universe

fern-178702_1280

Any process of experience can be broken down into Seven Steps. In other words, whenever and wherever an energy is birthed into existence, it will go through these Seven Steps. I include this here for a couple of reasons. First, these Seven Steps can be used in practical applications throughout Life to bring greater understanding to any process. Second, this is a valuable tool to deepen your understanding of how the Great Spirit organizes the universe.

The Seven Steps will be taught individually.  At the end of the series will be a test to see if the steps are in their proper placement.

Animal Medicine Monday – Bear

polar-bear-404314_1280  bear-1718794_1280Bears are Keepers and Protectors of the Dream.  You can call the bear if you need help to hold the Dream.  A Bears’ color indicates their specific medicine:

  • White, Polar Bear — purity, philosophy, science, no mind and clear mind. Brings clarity and sobriety to professional work. Works with rainbows. Helps to stop pretense, especially related to advancing your career.
  • Black Bear— magick, alchemy and death. Teaches about the Shadow Dance. Tells you when your dream spaces are being invaded and when/that you need more protection.
  • Brown Bear — heart, family, trust, survival. Helps dance the Daydream.  Brown Bear is the keeper and teacher of the everyday Tonal Dream and usually has the tonal world in balance.  It can help with introspection and teach us to step into the silence of inner stillness. May signal that your family or group needs correction.
  • Golden and Grizzly Bear — vision and prophesy. The Grizzly Bear is called the great “sleeper/dreamer.”  It is the keeper and teacher of the Sacred Dream, teaching us the sleep dream, how to know ourselves through the introspection of the dream, and how to actualize our reality.  A great dream interpreter, the Grizzly Bear teaches how to survive turmoil and trauma and how to protect home, loved ones and possessions.  It is known as the Grand Protector of Visions and so calls us to vision quest. It teaches us how to stand and walk tall, how not to give away our power to tyrants, and how to pace our physical body. It is the west Spirit Keeper of the Sweet Medicine animal totems.
  • Black and white, Panda — the war between good and evil, light and dark, and how to keep balance.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Kachina-hey, Dream Teachers

dream-1804598_1280

The Kachina-hey, the 17th Power of the Universe, play the sound of All the Ways Will Gather Together within the Rainbow Circle Dance. You must Dream this Way, they sing. You must awaken with the Song of the seventeenth Power of the Southwest. Hear the Great Kachina Powers. They are the Dream Teachers! They are chanting the Dance Your Dream Awake Chant, the Blessed Beauty Way Chant, The Sacred Medicine Pipe Chant and the Sacred SunDance Way Chant. Their chants are as infinite and as many as the stars within the great sky. All of these are the Sacred Chants of Great Power.  They point the way to the dream of the eighteenth Power of the Northwest.

The Kachina-hey speak to us in symbols and sigils, both in our asleep dreams and in our awake dreams.  They help us to process our life experience so we can learn the lessons while we are in karma, or grab the greatest opportunities when we are in dharma.  They also point out and mirror to us our closed symbols, those places where we say to ourselves, ‘Oh, I’ll never do that!’ or ‘I couldn’t possibly…’ or ‘this is the way I always do…’  Holding these closed symbols at arm’s length takes an enormous amount of energy.  When we approach a closed symbol, open the door, and walk through, we make the unknown known and gain the energy that was once used to keep the symbol closed.

7 Arrows – Dark Arrow of Dependency

rope-1149730_1280

When something happens, we choose our response. This choice becomes our action and colors our perception of what continues to happen. Each group of Arrows, whether Dark, Light or Rainbow build on one another.  The second arrow cannot be picked up without first picking up the first arrow.  By the time, we pick up the seventh arrow, the previous six arrows are all at work.

Looking back to the first dark arrow, once our basic reality needs are met and we still claim to NEED something or someone, we opt for pain rather than pleasure, shooting the dark arrow of attachment from our quiver.

Opting for pain rather than pleasure are the choice points that signal a necessary death experience, for example, death of a pattern that is no longer working. These are the emotional shock points necessary for maturation to occur.  Recognizing emotional shock points for what they are, we re-interpret what we claim to need as WANTS.

If we stay at the effect and in reaction, choosing pain over pleasure, the second arrow we pick up within the Circle of Foxes is Dependencies.  Picking up this arrow keeps us from maturing and gets us caught in the adaptive triangle of Persecutor, Victim, Rescuer.

A good example of this is addictions.  In our imbalanced, immature state, we choose long-term pain and create short-term pleasure through using addictive substances, becoming attached to the initial “high” as a NEED.  We know deep inside that we don’t need the addictive substance.  And yet, we still WANT to re-experience the initial state of short-term pleasure again and again, thus creating dependencies on the addictive substances.  Picking up this dark arrow, we become the victim to the substance, whether its food, tobacco, alcohol, drugs, gambling, work, or co-dependent relationships, to name a few.  The substance can also be perceived as the “rescuer,” numbing the emotional pain or stress temporarily.  And ultimately, the substance also becomes our “persecutor”, causing affliction, sickness, disease, and sometimes even death.

Can you think of instances in your life when you initially became attached to a perceived NEED?  Or the moment when you realized this was not actually a NEED, but instead of letting the pattern of pain die, you redefined the NEED into a WANT and kept the pattern of pain going?

Animal Medicine Monday – Lizard

sleeping-chameleon-202417_1280

The Lizard is known as an ancestor speaker and tells us the secrets of the spirit world.  It teaches us how to talk to the little people; faeries, devas, gnomes, manitous.  Lizard carries secrets of sorcerers, teaches divination, precognition and the future.  It is a communicator of past life times.  Be aware because sometimes it lies.

7 Arrows (cont.)

ChuaTaKaMa means choreography of energy in motion. It is the key to this teaching. ChuaTaKaMa is broken down into three aspects — NEEDS, WANTS and DESIRES.

  1. CHUATA is the moment of choosing long-term pain for the sake of short-term pleasure. This choice is prompted by NEED. We all have certain basic reality needs, without which we truly suffer and need help to experience pleasure and beauty. They are food and water, tools and skills, shelter and clothing, healing and knowledge, free will and orgasticness.

Once these reality needs are met and we still claim to NEED something or someone, we are opting for pain rather than pleasure. These are the choice points that signal a necessary death experience. These are the emotional shock points necessary for maturation to occur.

  1. CHUAKA is the moment of choosing short-term pain for long-term pleasure. Recognizing emotional shock points for what they are, we re-interpret what we claim to need as WANTS. Rather than staying stuck in pain, we let go of the “need” and get ourselves moving out of the patterns of pain into greater self-reliance and pleasure. It is in these moments that we learn that death brings life.
  2. CHUAMA is learning through pleasure without pain. Having reached adequacy in reality needs and accessing life through our wants, ChuaMa leads us to ways that make DESIRES (dreams of beauty) come true. These are experiences of rebirth.

CHUATAKAMA is the proper use of all of our choices within a given resource circle of possibilities. Life is a choice: do we choose the dark (as defined by another and caught off balance within our patterns of pain) or do we choose the light (centered within our own circle and aligned with all forms of all things)?  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.
