Human World

diversity

Humans are the fourth-born children of Grandmother Earth and sit in the east.  Again, we are two-legged animals in the Center of the receiving world of the animals, but we can evolve and become balanced human beings as determiners, taking responsibility for our place in the web of life.  Human beings are determiners, or directors, because we have choice and free will; we can destroy or nurture our environment.

This wheel tends to create controversy because it distinguishes between red, black, white, yellow, and mixed races, called metis.  Furthermore, in these modern times, unique cultural and racial distinctions are blurring as technology shrinks the globe, and the world community continues to become more homogenous.  This Human World Wheel teaches the traits and gifts of humans as determiners of energy and honors the unique beauty of the gifts and give-away of each race of people that the soul seeks in its evolution and chooses as part of the mold for our spirit personalities.

The Twisted Hairs Elders say that each of us is a spiritual metis, as we have reincarnated into each race many times.  (They say that since each spirit personality, guided by the cycles within Sacred Law, reincarnates a minimum of 144 times to evolve to the point of resurrection and enlightenment, our spirit personality has incarnated into each race a minimum of thirty-six times.)  Furthermore, we all have red blood, black pupils, white bones, and yellow marrow in our bones (colors of the four directions of the Medicine Wheel), and we carry the gifts and give-aways of each of the colors within our cellular memory.  All we need to do is access that memory to realize we are metis; we are all brothers and sisters in the larger family.

Among all the creatures, it is only the humans who were created with free will, an agency of choice and self-determination. It is also only the humans who have the genitalia for experiencing full body orgasm at will. These two features distinguish us from the other Worlds. We determine our own reality and with this comes authority, responsibility, and power. It is our choice whether we exercise these in beauty and re-creation or in pain and destruction.

True Knowledge is Self-Knowledge

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 10.33.49 PMFor many ancient peoples, hair symbolizes knowledge. “Twisted Hairs” refers to those who take knowledge from all sources and weave it together to formulate what is true and valid for themselves. True knowledge is self-knowledge, tested, felt and integrated into a way of life that always leads to a change in one’s behavior and an effectual change in one’s substance health.

Thousands of years ago, as now, medicine women and men, shamans, magicians and sorcerers from varying tribes traveled beyond their tribal boundaries to seek knowledge from every direction of the Wheel of Life. In Turtle Island (North, South and Central America, originally including what is now Australia and New Zealand), these men and women of knowledge began to meet each other.

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 10.43.34 PMAs early as 1250 B.C., medicine men and women gathered together to form a Secret Society or Magickal Lodge called the Rattlesnake School. In 1224 A.D., they met with other shamans, sorcerers, magicians and wizards of the Eight Great Powers. Then in 1250 A.D., the Twisted Hairs of Turtle Island formed a Metis Medicine Societies Council of Elders. “Metis” refers to the fact that they represented many and varied tribes. They were, therefore, “of mixed blood”.  A unanimous agreement for membership to the Metis Medicine Societies Council of Elders and a Circle of Law was established to facilitate the sharing of their combined knowledge with anyone whose primary reason for choosing a physical body was to become enlightened.  Membership to the Metis Medicine Societies Council of Elders was open to those who accepted the Sacred Laws of the Universe and sought to become a Sacred Human who touched self, life and others with Beauty.
