The 20 Count as MAT spaces

 

as above

Knowing that everything is a MAT space and has its own energy vibration level and attraction, let us look at how the numbers of the Twenty Count are not just numbers.  They are vibratory powers of those twenty MAT spaces.  These powers also represent the realm of the tonal and the nagual, two concepts that are very important to understanding the relationship between your spirit/soul and your physical presence in this lifetime.  The tonal world is the third-dimensional physical, material world, which we identify as the “real” world of our everyday life and experience through our five senses.  It is referred to as the “So Below” and is represented by the powers 1-10.  The nagual world is the world of spirit and the soul, our true nature spirit personalities, the fifth dimension, and the dreamscape you enter when you sleep and dream.  It is referred to as the “As Above” and is represented by the numbers 11-20.

Exercise to get to know the Children’s Twenty Count:

  1. Looking back to our Twenty Count Tuesday series that was posted between October 11, 2016 – March 7, 2017, write each of the Twenty Powers of a small piece of paper or 3″ x 5″ note card.  Place the papers or cards in a small bowl or hat.
  2. Each morning, pick one of the powers and ask your higher self and the power itself to teach you about its energy.  Walk with the particular power during the day.  Notice where you feel its energy within your body.  Notice how it is reflected to you from outside and inside yourself.  Write what you learned on the back of the card, paper or in your journal.
  3. Before you go to sleep that night, thank the power of the day for teaching you.  And ask if it will continue to teach you as you dream.
  4. When you wake up the next morning, take a moment and remember your dreams from the night before.  How did the power show up?  Write what you learned on the back of the card, paper or in your journal.
  5. Place this power to the side somewhere and select another power from the hat or bowl.  Continue doing this process for 20 days until you walk with each of the powers.
  6. On the 21st day, lay out all of papers or cards in front of you.  Which power was most familiar to you?  Least familiar?  Which power did you learn the most from?  Which one did you dream with the strongest?  Which resonated within your physical body the deepest?  Where did you feel this resonance?
  7. How did each Power of the Twenty Count show up as a MAT space.

Orende: Our Life Force Energy

chi

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.

How Energy Works

It is important to know how energy works so we can have freedom of choice in our lives.  Energy expressions have two components which govern their movement.

The Laws of Energy Attraction sit in the cardinal directions.  (Remember the cardinal directions of a wheel stabilize the energy.)  These are the qualities of energy and whether it attracts or repels.  The factor which has the greatest bearing on each law is whether or not we as humans know the law and use it to come into alignment with the energy which is present.

The Four Choices of Energy Response sit in the non-cardinal directions. (The non-cardinal directions move the energy.) The factor with the greatest bearing on the choice of energy expression is the understanding that we do have a choice about how we respond to energy, and that our choice makes a difference in the quality and richness of our life.

Attitude, Choice, Energy

There was a man who had two little boys. In one room, he placed one of the little boys with the finest erector set ever made. He placed the other little boy in a room which was full of horse dung and a shovel. A few hours later the father went back to see how the boys were doing. First, he looked in on the boy with the erector set. The boy had moved to the corner of the room, the erector set lying in front of him. He was sobbing and crying. His father asked him, “What’s the matter?” The little boy said in a whiny voice “I don’t know what to make. The pieces are too heavy. I can’t make anything. It’s too hard.” The father shook his head and decided to look in on the second boy. When he opened the door, much to his surprise, the second little boy was laughing, wildly using the shovel to dig the horse dung out of the pile. The father said, “Son, what are you doing?” His son replied with much enthusiasm, “With this much horse dung, there’s got to be a pony under here somewhere!”

This is a story that SwiftDeer told to illustrate that attitude is everything! Approach life with a proper attitude and life itself will bring you more health and happiness. As a result, we gain energy. An improper attitude can bring us dis-ease and sadness, through which we lose energy. The quality of our life is influenced greatly by our attitude.

Warrior Wednesday – Pattern and Timing

henna_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 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.

Freedom Streams of the 0-9 Law

staircase_1280

All energy moves in a cyclical sequence from 0-9 and thus ten Steps. These Steps provide the stasis or balance to all movement and process. It is the key to the structure of the universe and to how this universe defines itself.

Within the process of our life experience we go through Seven Steps at each movement. The eighth step establishes the new pattern, the ninth step moves it and then the tenth step signals a completion of one cycle and the beginning of the next stream of life.

These Steps match the Seven Dimensions of this universe through which light becomes life and gives life. The Seven Steps describe how energy moves through life in a constant and continuous cycle. The Seven Dimensions refer to the seven levels of existence and the potential levels of awareness of that existence.

Join us tomorrow for a description of the 10 steps!

The Everything Orchestra

graphics_1280
Let’s look at the Great Mystery, the Everything Orchestra, and its twenty sections. This is the Great Wheel, the Universal Medicine Wheel of the Twenty Sacred Powers.

Each Power has its sitting place on the Wheel within the Orchestra so that its vibration can contribute in a perfect, harmonic way to all the songs and sounds that come from it and within in, as well as those that go out from it in an ever increasing Circle of Light.

The first part of this Song is both the first part and all parts contained within the whole. The first part is Zero, the Nothing that is Everything, the Everything that is all Things. It is also Twenty (20) or Double-Zero (00), the Great Mystery, the Great Spirit of this Everything Orchestra. We might say that Double-Zero (00) is the Orchestra and Zero (0) is the Song that it is playing and singing. Within all sound there is light. Light is an energy which includes cycles of four as it manifests itself into this Sacred Twenty Medicine Wheel of Sound.

Children of Grandmother Earth, The Human World

circle_1280Each of the worlds have a wheel of their own.  Each of the directions dance with the Human World in different ways.

In the South are the red humans.  These are the peoples who are most closely aligned with the heart, the fluidity of emotions. They teach us the way of one-heartedness, having a heart connection to all forms of Life in a beauty way. It is to these sisters and brothers that we owe these Sweet Medicine SunDance teachings.

In the West are the black humans. These brothers and sisters teach us about physical mastery and power, the body’s agility, rhythm, strength, and endurance.

In the North are the white humans, the people of the mind, of modern technology who have greatly advanced the evolution of civilization. However, they have significantly forgotten to do so in balance and harmony.

In the East are the yellow humans. These sisters and brothers teach us about the spirit.

In the Center are the Métis rainbow humans. These are all those who realize that no matter what color the skin, no matter what race or cultural heritage, we all have red blood, black pupils in our eyes, white bones, and yellow marrow in our bones. They teach us the ways of the Five Huaquas: health, happiness, humor, hope, and harmony. These are the gifts of being truly human. In order for us as humans to achieve these qualities of human-ness

We must:

  • GIVE WITH TENDERNESS – having as our intent to gather together in our heart space
  • HOLD & TRANSFORM WITH INTIMACY – by caring for one another in our physical bodies
  • RECEIVE WITH CARING – by teaching one another within respect and honor
  • DETERMINE WITH PASSION AND LUST – by sharing with one another our fire, our inspiration
  • CATALYZE WITH OPEN HEART-TO-HEART COMMUNICATION – by being intimate with one another

Remember we said wherever you have four, you also have five. So with the four Worlds is the fifth World: In the center of all Worlds is the World of Spirit, the catalyzer of all energy.

All forms of life have “spirit” (manitou): they have life force energy, which we call the catalyst, pulsing through their form.

Children of Grandmother Earth, The Animal World

Each of the worlds have a wheel of their own.  Each of the directions dance with the Animal World in different ways.

In our tradition, animals are known as “Sweet Medicine.” Each animal through its habits and ways carries within its being-ness a “medicine.” It is a gift of healing they bring to us if we align with them. Mostly they teach us to be who we are. You don’t see a dog wanting to act like a frog. It is content in its dog-ness. These animals are great teachers and allies.

salmon_1280

In the South are the swimmers of all sizes and shapes.  They are receiver-givers. The fluidity of water has to do with our emotions. Look at the dolphin: it is a receiver by nature, but if a human is in trouble, it will give help to the human.

lizard_1280In the West are the crawlers, those who creep with their belly on the earth. The earthworms, lizards, and snakes are receiver-holders. They know the earth intimately, so from them we can learn how to be in a more harmonious relationship with her. The earth worm eats compost and changes it into soil, therefore helping the soil to hold its integrity.

In the North are the four-leggeds, the receiver-receivers, those who run with the wind and teach us balance. Some of these animals have been willing to “receive” humans onto their backs and make our transportation easier.

In the East are the winged ones, the receiver-determiners. These beings relate to our spirit (fire). The eagle is known as the “Messenger of the Great Spirit,” carrying our prayers to spirit and bringing messages back to us.

 

In the Center are the mythical animals, the receiver-transformers and catalyzers. Mythical animals have a way of stretching our imagination and teaching us in the dreamtime.  They carry truth through the myth and legends of all cultures. Also here are the two-leggeds who are not yet sacred humans. The Sweet Medicine SunDance Way speaks of unbalanced humans as “two leggeds.” They are human in form but lack the consciousness and right behaviors of what it is to be truly human. When humans become balanced, they move to their own place on the Human Wheel.
