SunDance Story of Creation, part 2

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.

Inspiration

“The “power” of anything is its
essence and how it gives away and
touches others with beauty.

We gain clarity of who we truly are
in the wheel of life
through the reflection of the
powers of the directions.”

The Dance of the Twenty Count: Inspiration

“This is 20. One of the first ways to learn the 20 Count is to see it as though you are each power, each number and say it in this way:

‘I am 20. I am Wakan Tanka. I am the Great Spirit.

I am WahKahn the creatress, the Great Grandmother. I am SsKwan the Creator, the Great Grandfather.

I am the universal force and the universal law.

I am the sphere of pure orgastic light of love and awareness. I am the Great Spirit. I am 20.’

If you say it that way, something starts to happen inside. Rather than seeing it as something out there, it’s not. It’s in here, and that what I want you to connect to, because it does something very magickal.

It helps you to understand your part of being the solution instead of the problem in the universe and the planet.”

– Harley SwiftDeer Reagan, 1989

The Dance of the Twenty Count: An Intro

The Dance of the Twenty Count: 11 – 20 As Above Recap

Did you miss any?

The Children’s Twenty Count is a way of perceiving the special qualities and “give away” of the sacred powers of the universe and relating them to the numbers 1-20. This provides a valuable mathematical system the describes the interrelationships of the powers to one another and forms the basic framework for all of the Sweet Medicine SunDance teachings.

The Children’s Twenty Count describes our world as we live in it, and the powers that influence us here in our attempt to establish interconnection, interreliability and interdependence with all things.

In our past posts, we’ve taken you through each of the powers to introduce you to qualities, vibrations, and give aways of the numbers 1- 10, representing the powers that are the “so below“…the numbers that are related to this 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is green“…

Then, we took you through the upper numbers (11-20), presenting the powers that are the “as above“…the numbers that are related to beyondthis 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is blue“…

For a recap of numbers 11 – 20, click on the links below.

Thus far we have presented in each blog post, the numbers 1- 10, representing the powers that are the “so below“…the numbers that are related to this 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is green“…

As we discuss the upper numbers (11-20), we begin with the powers that are the “as above“…the numbers that are related to beyond this 3rd dimensional reality and “all that is blue“…

18 = Chuluamahdah-hey (Karma Masters)

The Chuluamahdah-hey are the keepers of our Book of Life and represent the number 18. They are the magickal teachers and work with pure magickal energies such as the ten Magickal Laws to create your everyday (tonal) physical world.

The Book of Life is the place where our sacred images for this lifetime are stored or recorded. These images are all the mirrors that we chose, out of which and within which we reflect ourselves. They give you the teachings you have asked for in this life in order to grow and evolve. These sacred images are the karma and dharma which we are dealing with in this lifetime.

In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, karma is lessons or patterns we have repeated from one lifetime to the next. They are in our lives to learn from. Karma is readily identifiable because it often translates as pain. When we change the pattern, we will experience a different outcome and … hopefully … pleasure or happiness. In other words, we will experience dharma.

Our elders teach us that when you were in spirit, your greater self met with the Chuluamahdah-hey and discussed what lessons unlearned in other lifetimes you still needed to learn, and which ones you were wanting to learn in your next incarnation.

Next you decided on what parents, social, economic, political and religious settings to be born into that would give you the best chance to learn these lessons. All of these decisions and more were recorded in your Book of Life, which is only for this spirit personality living here on Earth in the present. (The collections of all of your lifetime lessons are known as the Akashic Records, which also include your sacred images.)

The Chuluamahdah-hey teach us how to break unproductive patterns through learning how to use chaotic energy. When you break these patterns, you change karma to dharma and pain into pleasure.

Isn’t it time for a little less pain and a little more pleasure in your life?

17 = Kachina-hey (Dream Teachers)

The Kachina-hey are called dream souls or dream teachers because they work with pure archetypal symbols, sigils and images through the place of the dream in the fifth dimension. They work with us in our sleeping dream and teach us through symbols and sigils about our patterns so that we may understand them better. The Kachinas are teachers of natural laws, science and mathematics. They are great awakeners of memory. In the Christian tradition, they are equivalent to the archangels.

The Kachina-hey also teach us how to go through fear to get to the other side of what that fear is really teaching us. The story goes that as a part of a young boy’s initiation into manhood in old tribal times, his uncles, old brothers and father would dress up as Kachinas and kidnap the young boy, taking him to the woods, surely evoking fear in the young boy along the way.

Once in the woods, they took off their masks, and the young boy could see that it was only his father, brothers and uncles, thereby teaching him that what he thought was something to be afraid of was nothing but his closest relatives. A very good reminder for us all that “we have nothing to fear, but fear itself.”

13 = Quetzal

flower archway

13 represents Quetzal and is symbolic of death and change and death giving life. Quetzal is known in many cultures by many names. She is the Goddess Beauty, Goddess Nature and Death Mother. In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Elders have taught us she is the Daughter of the First Breath. Christians call her Blessed Virgin Mary. In Mexico, she is Virgin de Guadalupe, and Native Americans in North America call her White Buffalo Woman. Different names, same feminine energy.

Quetzal is Earth Mother, the spiritual consciousness of all plants. When we eat a plant, its physical nutrition is not all that feeds us. Rather, when we are eating a plant (3), it releases its consciousness or spirit (10), and that (3 + 10 = 13) is what gives us sustenance and nourishment.

12 = Grandmother Planets

In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the number 12 is expressed through the Grandmother Planets. These are the planets on which human life is present and revolve around Grandfather Suns.  Our Elders have said there are 12 planets with human life in this universe. (Yes 12!)

12 in the Children’s Count refers to any body of energy within which sacred life can form or take place. It also means the grandmothers, any woman who is the bearer of life, the carrier of life, and therefore the number of the goddess.

Because 12 is also our ability to be present here now, it represents the opportunity to gain total inner clarity of our Higher Self through meditation, chanting, prayers and ceremony. It is the point that we call the moment of internal light, the moment of awakening into one’s truth, of actualizing collective conscious awakened memory.

11 = Grandfather Stars and Sister Moons

Stars Sun Moon Water

In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, Grandfather Stars and Sister Moons are the enlightenment of collective consciousness and represent the number 11. Eleven is intellect within the light. Eleven gives us memory and recall.

The Elders teach us that Grandfather Stars are all stars that have planets with human life. You mean more than our planet Earth have human life? In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, we have been taught that yes, there is human life beyond Grandmother Earth.

Consequently, Sister Moons are all around these planets with human life. Our own moon is called “Waheyton.” She is a sister to Grandmother Earth. She works with Earth to control the cycles, tides and seasons. However, she also dances with the sun. The Elders say the moon is Grandfather Sun’s “second wife.”

According to the Elders in this Twister Hairs cosmology, there are basically four kinds of stars: blue, white, yellow and red. The red stars are the grandfathers, like our planet Earth and sun. If, in its rays of light, the star has the cosmic seed to impregnate a fertile planet, it is a grandfather star or sun. They have planets that bare life revolving around them. The fertile planet is the sun’s mate and the other planets are her sisters.

The influences or effects of the moon as an actual heavenly body are experienced at the number 9. The moon functions as a mediator between the sun and the earth. Therefore, we say the moon also recalls all memory. This kind of memory isn’t a reference to your grocery list! It is genetic body memory of all that has and will be.
