Tonal Orende: Emotional

orende-emotional

The measure and duration of our life force energy as it manifests in this 3rd dimensional, substance reality is defined as Tonal orende.  In humans, tonal orende is calculated based on five different aspects: emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and sexual.

To get an idea of the meaning of tonal orende in practice, consider these reflections:
How much emotional support do you need per day? How often do you need to be
hugged and told you are loved? The more nurturing and support you need, the lower
your emotional orende. (Note when we use the word “need” in this context it means if
you don’t get it you will be in pain.)

Orende: Our Life Force Energy

You may know different words that describe our life force energy: chi, ki, prana, or chuluaqui. Orende is a word that indicates the measure of duration and intensity, both internally and externally, of our life force energy. Simply put, it measures how strong our life force is.

Everything that is in existence has an energy and vibration called Orende. This includes human beings. For example, our sun has an overall energy vibration measure of one. Our planet has an overall energy vibration measure of two. The plants have a vibration of three, and the animals are four. When a human is fully awakened, they have an overall energy vibration of five or above. The higher the orende level, the more stamina, endurance, and overall energy you will have.

The measure and duration of our life force energy as it manifests in this 3rd dimensional, substance reality is defined as Tonal orende.  In humans, tonal orende is calculated based on five different aspects: emotional, physical, mental, spiritual, and sexual.

Healing in the Sweet Medicine SunDance Way

When someone talks about “healing,” what do you think of?  Recovering from a cold? Curing disease? Getting better after surgery? 

In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path healing paradigm, the healed, or healthy, person is not just someone whose body is free from disease. True health encompasses our emotions, mind, spirit, and sexuality as well as our body. When we speak of healing, we mean coming into balance in all our aspects as well as with the natural world, into alignment with Sacred Law, and into alignment with one’s true self.

The Sweet Medicine Sundance Path healing paradigm is a shamanic way of approaching healing.  However, it is not a “traditional” way: it incorporates knowledge from several shamanic paths as well as western science.  It is a multifaceted approach to healing that addresses all aspects of us as humans: emotional, mental, spiritual, and sexual/soul force as well as the physical. 

Some of the basic premises in this healing paradigm are:

  • Each of us heals himself or herself – no one else can do it for us. This requires taking responsibility for our own healing (and our own lives!).
  • We heal through proper balance and alignment.
  • Disease and illness are teachers that we call in to learn some particular thing.  Understanding this, and where we are in our pattern of learning, is critical to our healing.
  • Healing can take other forms than the return of the physical body to health.

Our path offers a variety of techniques and ceremonies for those who desire healing.  Training in our healing paradigm is part of years 3 and 4 of the Red Lodge Longhouse program.  Both are available in a variety of locations around the world.
