Rocks and stones are double holders in the West. They are the muscles and bones of Grandmother Earth. A rock is alive; it talks to you. The Stone People hold the energy in a Medicine Wheel and give their alchemy to you in ceremony. In the purification lodge, the heated stones hold the heat of the fire and then release it inside the lodge. When water is poured over them, they sing their give-away song. This transforms the space and makes it possible for us to purify and heal ourselves
In the West, we hold with the physical body with intimacy. Now, this does not mean to hold as in hold on tight. It is holding in the sense of transforming energy through stabilization and for utilization. Think of it as an electrical cord.

Whether you are a Nobody, a Have Made It or a Super Star is determined by you dreaming this dream called life the way you want it. This process is simple, but not easy.

Most people think of themselves as a body which occupies space. We are rather a space within which resides a body. We are actually Magnetic Attracting Thought Spaces of energy (MATS) within the universe. Within our MAT, we dream an image of a physical body. Take a look at your physical body right now. Your body is here in this way because you dreamed it. It is a holographic image; our living book of life. The concept of dreaming your physical body the way it is, transfers over to the other aspects of your being.

If you have abundance, a good relationship and are happy, this is the dream you’ve
Many people don’t like reading this because it puts the responsibility for change squarely on their shoulders. From previous teachings, you know that 80% of what happens to you and the way you are is a response to pattern. Only 20% is minimal chance/chaos, i.e., the will of the Great Spirit.
Pay attention to what you focus your attention on! Keep moving your attention forward. The passage of time is a man-made illusion. Time is merely a reference point to identify where you are in space. You are a MAT in motion.
Over the next ten days, we will explore the categories of Controlled Dreaming. It will give you the opportunity to identify where you spend most of your time.

MAGICK AND ALCHEMY is the BODY of the Twenty Count. Our bodies are the vehicles for felt knowledge, for validation through experience to the point where we truly know. Magick is the process of aligning with any energy that is present to be able to discern its nature and then by adding our own energy, to direct its movement and expression. Knowledge of the Twenty Count allows us to create change in our reality because it is the very structure of reality.
