Always seek perfection through becoming impeccable.  Find the inner truth which leads you into proper alignment with all things within the Everything, allowing you to come into harmonic resonance with the ancestors and the Great Spirit. ~ SwiftDeer

 

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Movement or Design of Choreography

surfer_1280

We are playing and dancing almost in perfect harmony, but we are a bit off in our rhythm. We know this because we hear the Sound and feel the Percussion. We turn to look at this great Power. We see that it is Pure Energy that is bringing this Song. It is Movement itself. It is the ninth Power that is dancing and flowing with the rhythm of all the other sounds. Catching it, tuning to it, is aligning to the Great Choreography. We see and know that this is Movement.  Change happens here. We begin to perceive that maybe the Song is written here, designed from this place. This Song sings to us from the Northeast section of the Great Orchestra.

About the Red Lodge Longhouse Program
The Red Lodge Longhouse program is a year-long commitment to personal excellence and the impeccability of a Warrior. This program is for students who wish to develop ways of knowing how to connect with Spirit and how to live in harmony with fellow humans and nature. Through alchemy, sacred laws, magick and tools, the student gains freedom and enlightenment within their own path with heart.

The Intent and Focus of this First Year
First Year Red Lodge consists of six weekends and a ceremonial week-long in addition to personal study and opportunities for hands-on experiences and ceremonies. The first year program explores in depth the circular movement of the Wheels and Keys of knowledge of the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path.

At the end of this year, the student will be able to use these Wheels in their life, understand their connection to nature and how to make personal changes for the better. This program helps students to understand their movements through the Wheel of Life, to learn about their energy body, to stalk themselves and win the battle
of being “asleep” in life.

Red Lodge Year One is designed to allow the seeker or student to discover their path with heart and explore the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. It is an introduction to the “Great Work”, the inner journey to heal oneself and find the warrior within.

20 and Its Symbols

infinity_1280

When looking at the Twenty (20), you will see it represented in three ways.

As double Zero (00), it represents the separate female and male energies, the potential energy of WahKahn and SsKwan.

With WahKahn and SsKwan’s first breath, the marriage of the inhale and the exhale, the Great Spirit became infinite. So the infinity sign (∞) also represents 20 as the limitless expression of the Great Spirit.

When Twenty (20) is represented by four bars, it refers to the entity of the Great Spirit.

The Breath of Great Spirit

stained-glass-spiral_1280

The 20 Count, moving out from the center of the beginning of the universe, was in essence the way the Great Spirit took its breath, imploding and exploding at Zero (0) and then continuing to Double Zero (00) or 20.

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.

Once the Everything knew its feminine and masculine aspects, the breath of Wakan Tanka birthed first of the four sacred elements, air. The second element was fire, the spirit of the Chuluaqui force of Wakan Tanka. Then from the space of its female and male side, WahKahn and SsKwan came together with the energy force of their separate Chuluaqui energies combining in a whirlwind serpent-fire of total love and the third element of water was created. From the two Chuluaqui energies came Quodoushka, the sacred marriage and union of the male and female energies which together become greater than the sum of the parts and thus became the heart of Wakan Tanka. Then seeing that the purpose of creation was discovering substance form through the act of orgastic pleasure in order to gain knowledge of itself, Wakan Tanka (WahKahn/SsKwan) made love and created all things within the Everything. Thus the fourth element of earth became the physical manifestations of the love energy of the Great Spirit

SunDance Story of Creation, part 1

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 10.29.41 PMEvery culture, every people since always have had myths, stories and legends of how life began. The Twisted Hairs’ story of creation is written in the records of the sacred kiva, their underground meeting place. Here, SwiftDeer retells that story.

In the beginning, since always, the Everything was created from within the Void in which there was present pure energy force called Chuluaqui. Chuluaqui is the primal and primordial life force of pure light energy that is the source of all light energy movement within all things of the Everything. We could say that Chuluaqui is the source of the force of Wakan Tanka. It expresses itself as pure orgastic, harmonic and balancing energy vibration and is, in essence, the spark of life that allows all things within the Everything to take on their particular substance form.

Screen Shot 2016-09-01 at 10.26.52 PMAs Wakan Tanka, the Great Spirit and Sacred Mystery which is called the Everything, took breath, it inhaled with implosive force its Chuluaqui and thus discovered its female being. This creative receptive force became the egg of all creation known as WahKahn, the Universe, our sacred Great Grandmother. Then Wakan Tanka exhaled and in so doing discovered its male side, the active conceptive force, the seed of all creation known as SsKwan, the Galaxy, our sacred Great Grandfather.
