Animal World: Four-leggeds

weimaraner-1801724_1280

In the North, we receive with the mind through clarity and caring. Our mind is an open cup, ready to receive from many viewing points and perspectives. When we are open only to one viewing point, we can get tunnel vision. The more ideas and concepts we can receive with our minds, the greater will be our capacity to see many different perspectives and therefore, gain more clarity.

The four-leggeds, the runners who are double receivers sit in the north of the Animal World wheel.  They are in perfect balance within themselves and with everything around them.  They know when the weather is going to change or a storm is brewing or a natural catastrophe is about to happen.  They receive energy, very often absorbing human emotions.  If your pets are in the area where you are doing body work, healing work, crystal work, medicine work, or magickal ceremony, they will soak up every bit of negative energy.  Your animals will literally die for you.

Fact about dogs: They possess up to 300 million olfactory receptors in their noses, compared to about six million in us. And the part of a dog’s brain that is devoted to analyzing smells is, proportionally speaking, 40 times greater than ours.  That’s a lot more receiving than humans are even capable of.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Earth Father

bald-eagle-1259676_1280

Our hearts begin to soar like an eagle on the fleeting wings of time as we spin towards the North to become the Dance within the Wings of the fourteenth Power. We see that this fourteenth Power swims as the dolphin and carries us through the rivers of life, through the aeons of time.  This Power flows into the great Lake of Memory and is Earth Father. He teaches us the Dance of the Snake so that we might be close to the ground and hear the Songs of the Rock People.  He teaches us to dance with the four-leggeds through the flowers and trees so that we can hear the Songs of the Plant People. This is the world of magick. We feel the Medicine of the Sacred Chant called How to Fly as the Eagle and we realize that this is, indeed, the Sweet Medicine Chant. Within it are the Songs of the Spirits of all our Animal brothers and sisters on this Sacred Planet
