Hokkshideh’s Sacred Dream

gift

In the North is the place of wisdom and knowledge. This is the determination of this wheel. It is the Hokkshideh’s Sacred Dream. This dream asks, “What are you going to give back to self, life, and others?” This is why you have chosen to take form. It’s what you have to “give away” with beauty and love in order to bring healing and knowledge to all forms of all things. It is your determination as a sacred human on this planet.

Dancing Awake Daydream

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.

Wheel of Dream Types

ferris wheel

Now that you have identified which direction you spend most of your time on the Controlled Dreaming Wheel, we will move into the nine different Dream Types, which sit on a wheel of their own.  We will overlay the Seven Steps of Process according to the 20 Count placement on the Wheel so we can spiral down for greater knowing.

REMEMBER…  What exists in the third dimension (tonal reality) is a manifestation of the dreams that you create in the fifth dimension (nagual reality). Your Higher Self is always dreaming with your Lower Self to create the necessary forms, situations and events that you need in order to receive the growth experiences for this lifetime. In the fifth dimension, all things are possible, and all time—past, present, and future— is one and the same. Therefore, when you take control of your dream, you have more control over the events that take place in your daily life. Because all things are possible in the fifth dimension, the ability to access all knowledge is also possible. To do, this you must learn to “control the dream.”

I invite you to join us as we explore the Wheel of Dream Types during the next two weeks.

7 Arrows – Body Knowing

16_0318-blank-arrows-set-of-21 Book-learning is all well and good, but until we know it in our body as a practice, it does not become knowledge and eventually wisdom.

We have been focused on the 7 Arrows for the last few weeks. Here’s a way you can bring your feeling and experiences of each of the arrows into substance and form.

Buy or find wood dowels, shish kebab skewars, sticks, or whatever material calls to you.  The arrows in the picture above are 1/4″ wood dowels cut into 12″ lengths with one end sanded down for the point of the arrow.  Paint and decorate one arrow as the embodiment of each dark, light, and rainbow arrow.  You can always paint more dark arrows if you actually want to break them each time you consciously pick up a light arrow.

porsche-completeAs you do this, think, feel, sense the times you pick up the particular arrow you are working on in the moment.  You’ll be surprised at the colors and items you add as the representations of each energy.

The set of arrows here show the 7 Dark Arrows at the top, the 7 Light Arrows in the middle and the 7 Rainbow Arrows at the bottom.  It’s also interesting to lay all of the 1st arrows (dark, light, rainbow), 2nd arrows, 3rd arrows and so on next to one another.

We’d love to see pictures and hear about the insights you learned in bringing this teaching to life.

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Illumination

When we pick up the first light arrow of Self-Awareness, the dark arrow of attachments is broken. Becoming self-aware destroys ignorance.  And our developing concept of self helps us to discern what is a true reality need and what is not.

By choosing self-awareness from our quiver, the gift of the 1st Rainbow Arrow is Illumination.  Grandfather Sun, the first power of the Twenty Count, shines down on us and we feel the warmth and light of his rays throughout our whole being. We accept the Light as the source of our knowledge, illumination and enlightenment. We lighten up with the smile of the sun’s rays. Light is our focus.

When we allow our spirits to expand, when we soar with the eagle, we can catch those insights which illuminate our life.  When we compound the illuminations, we can achieve enlightenment.

Animal Medicine Monday – Skunk

The Skunk is considered a shield bearer, a shield being a body of knowledge. The keeper of scents, senses, and inner senses.  Much like the Opossom, because it is nocturnal, the skunk is a shadow exposer.

If something smells fishy, or gives you goosebumps, makes your hair stand on end, or just doesn’t feel right, call on skunk to help you find the knowledge necessary to expose what’s in your shadow or your Shideh (lower self) so you can walk with the beauty of your inner wisdom and knowledge.

Animal Medicine Monday – Elk

elk_1280
Elk, the largest and most regal member of the deer family, are the totem animal corresponding to the sun sign of Sagittarius.

Elk are fast, good jumpers, and considerate.  While traveling in gangs, they take turns making trails in the snow.

Elk are master teachers and healers, as well as the awakener of the unconscious. This keeper of thunder and lightning teaches us to “hear the lightning and see the thunder,” which helps bring us from fantasy into the light of knowledge.  Master of rules and laws; Elk teaches us to resolve our karma circles. They are also the guardians of the gateway into the unknown (the nagual or spirit world) and masters of physical sexuality and orgasm.

Animal Medicine Monday – Frog

frog_1280
Frog, the clan animal of the Water Clan, is a cross-cultural symbol as a totem for the shaman.  This “shield-jumper” helps us to integrate all the teachings of the different powers into our own system of knowledge. (A shield is a body of knowledge.) The frog is the keeper of the great memory clans, secret societies and magickal lodges.

Self-Exploration…

child_1280Each single wheel teaches us about an aspect of our world, much like a single ingredient in a recipe provides one flavor.  When we start overlaying wheels, the depth of these teachings are revealed in the interconnections we explore.  This exploration will move the teachings into body knowing.  Accessing our body knowing leads us to felt wisdom.

In the last month, we have learned about the Elements, Seasons and the Directions and their “Give-away”.  Take some time to explore these interconnections:

How is the south, the color of red, the season of spring, the element of water, and trust and innocence inter-related?

For the west: Explore the inter-connections of black, winter, the earth, and intuition and introspection.

For the north: white, autumn, air or wind, and wisdom and logic.

For the east: yellow, summer, fire, illumination and enlightenment.

Please feel free to share what you came up with so we may all learn from each other and deepen our own perspectives.
