Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Kachina-hey, Dream Teachers

dream-1804598_1280

The Kachina-hey, the 17th Power of the Universe, play the sound of All the Ways Will Gather Together within the Rainbow Circle Dance. You must Dream this Way, they sing. You must awaken with the Song of the seventeenth Power of the Southwest. Hear the Great Kachina Powers. They are the Dream Teachers! They are chanting the Dance Your Dream Awake Chant, the Blessed Beauty Way Chant, The Sacred Medicine Pipe Chant and the Sacred SunDance Way Chant. Their chants are as infinite and as many as the stars within the great sky. All of these are the Sacred Chants of Great Power.  They point the way to the dream of the eighteenth Power of the Northwest.

The Kachina-hey speak to us in symbols and sigils, both in our asleep dreams and in our awake dreams.  They help us to process our life experience so we can learn the lessons while we are in karma, or grab the greatest opportunities when we are in dharma.  They also point out and mirror to us our closed symbols, those places where we say to ourselves, ‘Oh, I’ll never do that!’ or ‘I couldn’t possibly…’ or ‘this is the way I always do…’  Holding these closed symbols at arm’s length takes an enormous amount of energy.  When we approach a closed symbol, open the door, and walk through, we make the unknown known and gain the energy that was once used to keep the symbol closed.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Achlohtah-hey

christ-898330_1280

We can play all the Songs now since we know all the Music and can Dance all the Dances.  “Go Beyond,” they sing, “Go Beyond all that appears to be.” This you can do by moving within the Song of the Southeast, the Song of the sixteenth Power. These are the Enlightened Souls and they sing a Song and carry a Light that is a Great Rainbow. They sing the Chant called the Chant of the Many Paths. They sing the Chant called the One to the Many and the Many to the One Chant. Their song is a powerful song. It says within its words, “You, little brother, little sister, are the Way, the Light and the Truth. Look within yourself and find the Light. Know that Truth can be found from anywhere on the Wheel and that the only Way is any Way that leads to the Center of the Wheel.” They begin to teach us how to find our Way. They sing the Chant called the Way of Honoring your Brothers and Sisters.

The Sacred Achlohtah-hey are the Enlightened Earthly Masters, those who gained enlightenment while in a physical body.  We know these best as Jesus Christ, Krishna, Buddha, and Kwan Yin. Each one of us have the potential to become enlightened in this body in this life.

“Timeless truth, I tell you: ‘whoever believes in me, those works which I have done he will also do, and he will do greater works than these, because I am going to the presence of my Father.'” ~ John 14:12, from the Aramaic Bible in Plain English

Twenty Count Tuesday – Souls of all Sacred Humans

hawaiian-hula-dancers-377653_1280

At the fifteenth power, the Souls of all Humans, we begin to dance for joy. We begin to see through the eyes and ears of all our brother and sister humans. As we see through their eyes and hear with their ears, we realize that they are like mirrors to us. In fact, everything around us, every Power within this Orchestra, is a mirror.  Each reflects back to us our own Inner Light. This reflection is carried on the Sacred Winds as the Songs of our Soul and we can see this Great Mirror reflected back to us from the East of Center of the Circle of Life. It sings the Gathering Together Circle Song and chants the Sacred Rainbow Chant of the SunDance Way.  It sings to us, little sister, little brother, the Look within Yourself Song. See the Beauty of All that is. Open our eyes and look around you and see the many mirrors and the many powers. Look into and through the eyes of even one brother or sister and you can see the Whole Universe!

We know deep within the interdependence, interconnectedness, interreliability of all the worlds, especially the human world.

 

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Earth Father

bald-eagle-1259676_1280

Our hearts begin to soar like an eagle on the fleeting wings of time as we spin towards the North to become the Dance within the Wings of the fourteenth Power. We see that this fourteenth Power swims as the dolphin and carries us through the rivers of life, through the aeons of time.  This Power flows into the great Lake of Memory and is Earth Father. He teaches us the Dance of the Snake so that we might be close to the ground and hear the Songs of the Rock People.  He teaches us to dance with the four-leggeds through the flowers and trees so that we can hear the Songs of the Plant People. This is the world of magick. We feel the Medicine of the Sacred Chant called How to Fly as the Eagle and we realize that this is, indeed, the Sweet Medicine Chant. Within it are the Songs of the Spirits of all our Animal brothers and sisters on this Sacred Planet

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Earth Mother

rose-793759_1280 We seem to be playing faster now and more smoothly. We can no longer separate the Instruments from ourselves. We can no longer separate the sounds from the music. It is a part of us and this now seems natural. Deep within our heart we realize that the Song and the Dance have always been there and we sing for joy as we turn towards the South again. We begin to see and hear a sweet and gentle voice singing the beautiful lyrics of the Heart of the Plants. We realize that their Spirit is singing to us the Song of Nature. This is the thirteenth Power, our Earth Mother.  Her Song is beautiful for it carries the Light and the Spirit of all the Plants straight into the fibers of our Being. Her Song travels up the light paths of the umbilical cord of life and straight into our hearts. Hers is the beautiful Song of the Blessed Beauty Way Chant.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Grandfather Stars & Sister Moon

pleiades_1280

We look again to the East and we see and hear many Voices, many Instruments, many Songs being played in harmony with Grandfather Sun’s Song. These are the Grandfather Stars, the eleventh Power. They are singing the Song of Inspiration and the Chant of the Heyoehkahs.  There are many Songs here and each is a Sacred Teacher. The Light coming from these Songs begins to reveal to us our own illusions. We begin to see why it is so hard and yet so simple to sing this Song.

Sacred Grandfather Stars are those stars who are suns for planets with human life.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Measure of Intellect

treecircle_1280It seems as though the Circle is complete, but then we really begin to awaken. We feel drawn, pulled by a spinning, whirling sensation. It is as if the winds of a tornado were blowing us towards the North of the Center of this Great Wheel, this Great Orchestra. The Power is elusive, the sound is on a very high scale and comes from the tenth Power. It is on such a high scale that the light-within-the-sound seems beyond our ability to perceive. The sound-within-the-light seems to be ringing inside our head, inside our own mind. For a brief moment as we are singing our Song, playing our Music, dancing our Dance, we fall into perfect rhythm and harmony. In this moment, we realize that this tenth Power is the Great Measure, the Great Intellect that lies within ourselves. It lies within every Note, Song, Sound, Light, Presence and Power within this Great Orchestra.

We are conscious of it and yet unconscious of it. We seem to be a part of it and yet not a part of it. We struggle to remain in harmony and not lose it, for we know, intuitively, that it is here that all of the Energies, all of the Instruments, Sounds and Songs are collected. They are blended together in a Collective and Unified Circle.

Now we dance at a Gateway. We see, hear, sense and feel the experience of this great SunDance. We realize that if we can dance through this Gateway, an even greater Song is being played. This Song is coming from within the Circle and from outside the Circle at one and the same time. There is a “double energy” that is coming from each of these Powers on the Wheel of Life.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Humans

magnifying-glass_1280
These Powers of the Four Directions are dancing with the Four Elements carrying the Song into the South of the Center of the circle where we Humans are sitting, playing our instruments and doing our Dance of Life Song. Sometimes our instruments, our bodies, are out of tune and out Song, our Music, becomes disharmonious.

Twenty Count Tuesday – Sacred Animals

Across from the Plants and the Waters, sitting in the North, are the Sacred Animals. They are the fourth Power and the second children of the Sun and the Earth. The Song they sing is one that is carried on the Sacred Winds which blow fiercely through our minds, like a hurricane and its howling of Awakening. Sometimes the winds blow gentle and soft and whisper Clarity.
