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.
