“All power is hidden behind the veil of innocence and illusion. Succumb to illusion and you will become ill with self-importance. Accept innocence and step into the Child Spirit Shield, into the center of your own essence. Keep your attention there and do not be distracted, for this is the moment of power. In your left hand, hold experience and the maturity to be able to integrate that experience. In your right hand, hold immediacy and action. Taking responsibility holds the hands together. Power will give you the gift of wisdom through ‘catching minimal chance’. This is the Warrior’s Act of Power and worthy of your Attention.” ~ SwiftDeer
Self-acceptance, the 3rd Light Arrow, supports us in connecting to our self-worth and value, which then breaks the strong separation the 3rd dark arrow of judgments causes. Through the Give-Away of our beauty to self, life and others without qualifications, we gain Trust and Innocence.
Trust is knowing there is an absolute interconnection and interreliability between one form of one thing and all forms of all things. Trust us also knowing there is something greater than we are or that we know. Innocence is being within the center of your own essence, standing in the center of our own circle of power, and simply being who we are fully alive in our senses. Trust and Innocence are the bottom two points of a triangle that has Perfection (walking your talk) at its apex.
Life is a CHOICE. Choosing the Light Arrows breaks the Dark Arrows. Persist in this practice and one day you will discover that the Universe has placed the Rainbow Arrows in your quiver in the place of the Dark Arrows as a gift from the Universe. A perfect balance of the female and male energies in the light brings to us the Rainbow Arrows of illumination and enlightenment; introspection and intuition; trust, innocence and perfection; balanced alignment with wisdom; open heart to heart communication; impeccability as one’s self-worth and the actualization of our Sacred Dream.
The South Spirit Keeper, who guides your spiritual self-growth and development, in the Wheel of Allies is the Coyote. This gentle trickster teaches you about illusion and tricks you into the light by showing you your dark side with humor. As the south Spirit Keeper, Coyote is a teacher of trust, innocence, humor and love. S/he is also a teacher and protector of children and a master of disguise, camouflage and imagination. When you put on a coyote robe you can “see the world with a different eye”.
Grandmother Earth’s first children are the Sacred Plants and the Sacred Waters. These sit in the South. The Plants are singing the Songs of Trust and Innocence, the Songs of the Giveaway. The Waters are singing the Songs of Carrying the Myths, of the Joy of having Pleasure within our Emotions in everything we do.
