superhero-534120_1280

In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes.  The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy.  In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.

In the East, the Warrior’s Attributes are Speed and Self-Growth. Speed refers to our way of learning. Do you learn slowly and with caution, at medium speed with full purpose and meaning, or fast, making changes on a regular basis? Self-growth is the determination of our spirit to actualize more of our potential, more of who we are truly meant to be. By continually developing and growing, you will gain whatever speed is necessary to move along your path with heart. How fast are you acquiring the five huaquas of health, hope, harmony, happiness and humor?

Animal Medicine Monday – Raccoon

 

raccoon_1280Raccoons are considered the masked heyoehkah, or sacred clown.  As they gather, they teach us to collect only that which is necessary.  They also teach us to horde, save and steal.  Raccoon is the teacher of jealously and possessiveness.  Because it is nocturnal, it is a shadow exposer.

Warrior Wednesday – Pattern and Timing

In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes.  The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy.  In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.

In the Northwest sit the Warrior’s Attributes of Pattern and Timing. Pattern is looking at the repetitions of energy and events. Timing is catching minimal chance: being in the right place at the right time. When you can discern the pattern of something, you know when to step in and catch the necessary timing. If you cannot discern pattern, you will not know when to act.

What are the patterns that you have encoded in your physical body because your perception was limited by the stories you believe to be true? Realize this is your script. Assume authority for what happens and has happened. Take responsibility for the agreements you have with others and your life process. Step into the power of each moment’s opportunity. If you do this, you will move into the light mirror. You will recognize, accept and change the pattern. You will have the wisdom to know the timing for change and the timing of evolution. This is a movement to a higher level of the script you wrote for yourself in spirit.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Measure of Intellect

treecircle_1280It seems as though the Circle is complete, but then we really begin to awaken. We feel drawn, pulled by a spinning, whirling sensation. It is as if the winds of a tornado were blowing us towards the North of the Center of this Great Wheel, this Great Orchestra. The Power is elusive, the sound is on a very high scale and comes from the tenth Power. It is on such a high scale that the light-within-the-sound seems beyond our ability to perceive. The sound-within-the-light seems to be ringing inside our head, inside our own mind. For a brief moment as we are singing our Song, playing our Music, dancing our Dance, we fall into perfect rhythm and harmony. In this moment, we realize that this tenth Power is the Great Measure, the Great Intellect that lies within ourselves. It lies within every Note, Song, Sound, Light, Presence and Power within this Great Orchestra.

We are conscious of it and yet unconscious of it. We seem to be a part of it and yet not a part of it. We struggle to remain in harmony and not lose it, for we know, intuitively, that it is here that all of the Energies, all of the Instruments, Sounds and Songs are collected. They are blended together in a Collective and Unified Circle.

Now we dance at a Gateway. We see, hear, sense and feel the experience of this great SunDance. We realize that if we can dance through this Gateway, an even greater Song is being played. This Song is coming from within the Circle and from outside the Circle at one and the same time. There is a “double energy” that is coming from each of these Powers on the Wheel of Life.

Warrior Wednesday – Power and Strength

statue_1280

In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes.  The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy.  In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.

The Warrior’s Attributes in the West are Power and Strength. Power is your ability to will something when you don’t have strength. Through the use of your will, you can access and utilize all of your resources. Strength is how much physical force you can demonstrate when lifting, running, or performing any exercises without experiencing a loss of orende (chi, ki, Prana, life force energy). It is the endurance factor of expended energy over time. Power and strength together create consistency and continuity in being at cause. The ability to choose the physical activities you want means you have good health.

Warrior Wednesday – Space and Distance

In each direction of the Warrior Attributes wheel, there are two attributes.  The first attribute carries the feminine energy and the second carries the masculine energy.  In each pair, you must have the feminine aspect mastered before you can step into and embody the masculine aspect.

The Warrior’s Attributes in the Southwest are space and distance. This refers to the gap between yourself and life’s experiences. When the action is happening and the cameras are rolling, space refers to how well you can stay open to the action and remain centered within yourself.

Distance refers to how close you will allow others (and life’s experience) inside your energy field. You will notice that a boxer constantly leads with short jabs, trying to gauge the space between himself and his opponent. When he determines the amount of space, he will know the distance he needs to cover in order to deliver his knock-down punch. When confronted with a closed symbol, do you need to create more space or close the gap in order to deal with it?

Red Lodge Longhouse

eagle_1280

You may have heard about the Arizona Red Lodge Longhouse, but wondered what is that?!?

Just by hearing the name, you certainly would not know what this Longhouse is all about.  One of the challenges with describing this yearlong program is that in modern day syntax, there is indeed NOTHING like it.  An elevator, quick hit description doesn’t do this program justice either.

Historically, a longhouse was held during the winter months when everything slowed down and the entire community would come together to share, study and expand through sacred knowledge.  In today’s world, we don’t have the winter months to shut down our life and luxuriate in this approach to learning and seeking.

Our Red Lodge Longhouse seeks to keep the traditional ways of gathering  like-minded folks, but tailors the timing of these gatherings to today’s pace.  That being said, we gather 7 times over the course of a year, 6 weekends at our center and 1 week of ceremony out in nature.

Why would I want to invest this kind of time to this program?  What do we do over this course of a year?  At this time of fast paced life, seemingly unlimited technology, and so many options of things to do, we offer a time-tested approach to reconnecting to all of life, gaining tools to help us sort out our past issues, and determine our way to the life we choose now to have.

Join others that desire to create their life with a balanced approach, focusing on spiritual connection, personal growth and abundance.  You will gain tools for change, new friends, and an understanding of natural worlds.

As it seems easier to disconnect, this longhouse is all about connection.

Connect to your potential.  Join us!
