Elemental Balance: East Energies

apple-tree-1280

In the East, we determine with the spirit through passion and lust. The words passion and lust are bound to create controversy. Think of it this way. You have not had an apple in a long time, and you may never have an apple again. As you eat this apple, you totally focus your attention on it. With all your senses, you taste the juice of it; you are aware of the texture and smell of it.  You savor every morsel of it as if it were the only thing going in town. This is eating an apple with passion and lust. So, in our lives, with everything we do, whether it is cleaning the floor, writing a paper, or making love, we should do it with the spirit of passion and lust, as if it were the last moment of life. Savor each moment by determining with your intent and focus from your spirit.

And, remember, it is the element of fire that reflects to us the power of passion and lust, the ability to vision with spirit, and to stalk out the fuel that feed our hungers and brings us joy.  Each of Grandmother’s Worlds have east energies that can also reflect our determination energy and connection to Spirit to us

The crystals sit in the east of the Mineral World wheel and are the holder-determiner brain cells of Grandmother Earth.  A crystal chip in a computer is programmable and allows the computer to create and to run complex programs.  Silicon dioxide chips are the essential elements that drive our electronic age, and used in everything from coffeemakers to space flight guidance systems.

Trees, called the Standing Nations, are the giver-determiners who sit in the East of the Plant World Wheel.  Trees have always been used as power symbols, and all magickal lodges, religions, and spiritual paths refer to the human being as the tree of life.  They communicate most directly with human beings because they are in the same place on the wheel that we are – in the place of determination – and the aura of a tree is similar to that of a human.

Trees determine the weather, for they are they lungs of Grandmother Earth.  They carry the memory of the ages and of Grandmother Earth’s story of herself, and the Elders say that the dying and destruction of the ancient grandmother and grandfather trees are slowly erasing that memory.

Trees determine the nature and variety of vegetation that grows around them by determining the amount of light that reaches the ground and the nutrients and acidity in the surrounding soils.  Growing around the tree are those plants that need shade and thrive on that type of soil; those that need sunlight grow away from the tree.  Furthermore, within two hundred feet of any toxic plant will grow its antidote.  Mugwort, for example, is an antidote for poison oak and can be found growing nearby.  Thus, the plant world keeps its balance.  The growth and proliferation of medicinal plants that provide sources for our healing are determined by the sacred trees.  It is no accident that such a large percentage of medicinal plants are found in our lush rain forests.

Since we depend on plants to give us life, food and oxygen, when we clear-cut forests, for example, we are truly destroying the determiners of life on this planet.  This applies to all the worlds of Grandmother Earth.  Human beings live on this planet because these worlds make life possible, and they are necessary partners in our evolutionary journey.  Destroy them, and we destroy ourselves.

The winged ones are aligned with spirit, and they are the receiver-determiners in the East of the Animal World wheel.  They are masters of movement in alignment with the wind energies, so they can fly the currents of the mind.  In every aspect of their being, they symbolize the way our mind receives.

The winged ones also represent our fierce desire to fly.  Even in the earliest cave drawings there are two connections made to the animal world by shamans and sorcerers: first to the horned ones and second to the winged ones.  Early humanity equated freedom with the symbol of the winged ones.  The greatest thing our mind can conceive is its individual, autonomous freedom, and birds represent this at the highest level, symbolically and in practice.  They also give us their wings and feathers as medicine objects that can direct or move energy.

We incarnate into the east race to learn the power of fire in the East in order to embrace spirit and gains moments of illumination.

Seven Dimensions

1-focus

There are Seven Dimensions within 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.

The First Dimension aligns with Focus, which begins the law of attraction.  Energy is present and attracts our attention.

Attention = Power

Whatever we focus on, wherever we give our attention to, we give our power to.

 

Spirit World: Omitakoyasin

Omitakoyasin, who sit in the East of the Spirit World wheel, are the spirits of all ancestors of all humans on this planet Since Always and For Always.  People who enter into your circle of life experience have done so because you have dreamed them there.  In some way, your souls have established an agreement that allows you to empower each other’s evolution.  We are all related.

In the East, we determine with the spirit through passion and lust. The words passion and lust are bound to create controversy. Think of it this way. You have not had an apple in a long time, and you may never have an apple again. As you eat this apple, you totally focus your attention on it.

Dancing Awake Daydream

dancing awake

In the East is the Dancing Awake Daydream. It is illumination and enlightenment, and is the focus of this wheel. In this dream, you are able to integrate the Hokkshideh (higher self) into the tonal “conscious mind.” It is Attention + Attraction + Focus + Impact + Co-empowerment + Knowledge = Power. You are aware of what you are focusing on. Is your focus on the strongest attraction, the strongest Magnetic Attracting Thought (MAT)?
Pay attention to when you fall asleep and when you stay awake. Understand what is happening in both instances. Attention is Power.

Controlled Dreaming, the Nobodies

girl-1382031_1280

The first category of Controlled Dreaming are the Nobodies, which sit in the South. This is the Focus within the Seven Steps of Process.  These are “dreamers” who lose their focus and are in reaction to those they give their power away to. They are asleep, unaware, at the effect, attached, and dependent. They are watchers and waiters and afraid to get involved in the action of life. Nobodies are consuming and consumed by the dreams of others.

Attention Focusing Exercise

palm-1921016_1280

Here is a simple exercise to help you focus your attention. It will also give you an idea of how unfocused and distracted your energy is. Take the tip of your middle finger (wind) of your right hand and place it over the top of the index finger (fire) of your right hand. With your fingers in this configuration, tap the top of the wrist of your left hand with your right thumb. Every time you get distracted, your mind wanders, or your attention is not focused on the now and what you are doing, tap yourself.

You may find, when you first start doing this, your wrist may become very sore within a day. If you are consistent with tapping your wrist every time your mind wanders from what you are doing in the moment, it will help you to focus your attention much better.

Freedom Streams of the 0-9 Law

mandala_1280

Today, we will explore the steps and dimensions within the 0-9 Law.

  1. First Dimension – FOCUS begins the law of attraction. Energy is present and attracts our attention.
  2. Second Dimension – SUBSTANCE exists when the attraction is focused. It appears within space. There is no definition, give-away or purpose at this point. It can be used for many reasons or purposes.
    For example, it is the raw material, like metal, out of which we make many tools and implements.
  3. Third Dimension – FORM occurs when definition and purpose are given to the focused substance.
    For example, a bar of steel becomes a crow bar. Pick it up and you can choose to use it as a weapon or a tool. At that point, impact is made.
  4. Fourth Dimension – DETERMINATION stands alone by itself. The nature of the impact has now been determined.
    The attraction will be seen at that moment as either positive or negative. The impact will be either creative or destructive and our challenge now is to determine what to do with it.
  5. Fifth Dimension – UNDERSTANDING occurs when there is no limitation between you and the energy. This is contrary to how most people define understanding. They limit the interaction so that they can gain “understanding”. If at the point of determination you do not have acceptance and tolerance of the action or thing, if you get into judgment or comparison, you will not have a true understanding of it. Instead, limitations are created to maintain the form of what is familiar and known. Understanding presupposes the process of clarification (assembling multiple viewing points), validation (cross-correlations, seeing if it is effective and is assimilated into our body knowing), and integration (Does the knowledge work? Can it be applied anywhere and at any time?)
  6. Sixth Dimension – IMAGINATION, with understanding in place, creates empowerment. Play with this word: “image a nation….I the Magi, within my sacred circle of empowerment”. At this Step, we must be willing to recognize all the faces of whatever is reflected to us as a part of us. In the Twenty Count, six is
    the place of the ancestors. If we are to have a proper understanding within our imagination to gain freedom from our pattern, we must be grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, son, daughter, sister, brother, husband and wife (in both parts of the relationship, i.e., wife-husband and husband-wife).  Either now, before or in the future, we will dance all the faces of these reflections. Imagination is the extension of who we are outside of time and space.
  7. Seventh Dimension – FREEDOM is the process of life itself. This Step carries light which is life itself. It is the dream, our experience of the process of life, our desire to live (our spiritual sexual eros). Autonomous individual freedom is the most sacred of all gifts and occurs here at the seventh Step. In its finest form, this is the power of resurrection.

Once any process has reached the seventh Step of Freedom, it will naturally evolve into a new Pattern which will need Chaos to move it into Completion. Completion is the Step which will spin any process into its next evolutionary cycle.

8.  PATTERN is the summation of the first Seven Steps.
A new pattern has been created and it is that of dominion. If we express our freedom as an act of empowerment, we are always in dominion. If at the eighth Step, however, we make our pattern one of going back to some limitation of form, we will immediately create a pattern of reincarnation.  Each cycle is a Circle of Law as we are trying to gain knowledge of Sacred Law and the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. The greatest karma in any pattern of non-freedom is the separation from or destruction of our connection with the earth.

9.  CHAOS is the implosion and explosion of breath.
There are only two numbers in the world according to the Elders, 0 = creation and 1 = light.  Light will make nine movements from “0”. At the ninth movement it will return to itself without anything acting on it. Within the chaotic wave, energy movement is designed and choreographed and is always in absolute male/female energy balance.

10.  COMPLETION (sometimes called SOLUTION) is the expression of artistic originality into all forms of all states of consciousness. All the consciousness of minerals as holders; plants as givers; animals as receivers; and all states of consciousness of humans as determiners equal a sacred measurement of ten. Light is creating itself into all forms of all things. Thus the Step of Completion is both the end and the beginning — a new evolutionary cycle begins even as one completes itself. Obtaining solution on one level merely opens the door to the next level of challenge.
