7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Abundance & Prosperity

dream-catcher-168655_1280

Like the light and dark arrows, the Rainbow Arrows build on one another.  Here at the 7th Rainbow Arrow, we have made the choice to pick up the light arrows of self-awareness, self-appreciation, self-acceptance, self-pleasure, self-love, self-actualization, and impeccability.  In doing this, the dark arrows of attachments, dependencies, judgments, comparisons, expectations, the needy child syndrome, and ego self-importance have been broken.  The Rainbow Arrows that are now in our quiver are the gaining of Illumination, Introspection, Trust & Innocence, Wisdom, Alignment, Balance, harmonic Resonance, and Full & Open Heart-to-Heart Communication.

The Gain of Abundance and Prosperity in our Personal Dream, our day to day life, is gifted to us as the 7th Rainbow Arrow.  We have the energy and drive to open to our Sacred Dream, our desire for enlightenment.  We give our beauty and shining to the Collective Planetary Dream, and the Collective begins to feed your Personal Dream.

Your Dream is Awake!

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Total & Full Balance of Energy

balance-863459_1280

By choosing the 6th light arrow of self-actualization, we are able to break the needy child syndrome dark arrow.  Choosing pleasure, having fun, doing what we enjoy, and being successful provides us with a concept of self-respect.  We discern and put energy into desires and actions, behaviors and thoughts that bring us pleasure, knowledge, and moments that transcend time.  We feel, sense and know our interconnectedness to all of life.

All life consists and emanates Chuluaqui-Quodoushka energy, the perfect balance of female-male energy, the inhalation and exhalation.  Through the use of this energy in our everyday life, we gain Total and Full Balance of Energy.  Our spiritual-sexual eros, that is our desire to live, expresses itself.

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Full & Open Heart-to-Heart Communication

camping-1839021_1280

The Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Full and Open Heart-to-Heart Communication is gifted to us when we persistently select the Light Arrow of Self-Love.  Self-Love helps us to embody self-confidence, where we understand that we may receive any one of the five perceptions (love, like, neutrality, dislike, or hate) with any action we make. With self-confidence, we look to meet our own desires in the present moment, as opposed to being caught in the delusions of needs not met by others in the past or the future.

Aligning with all forms of all things, all that breathes calls to us to wake up to who we truly are in our true nature spirit personality. Our healing energy of self, our “being-ness” touches our self, life, and others.  Understanding that all matter is us allows us to communicate with Spirit.

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Wisdom, Alignment, Balance & Harmonic Resonance

zen-2040340_1280

If you remember, the 4th dark arrow is Comparisons, the place where our group identity becomes our support system that verifies and validates our judgments and separation.  It feels like we  judge and separate from “them”, those who do not believe in the same way, or have the same values, and are not like us.  But truly, this dark arrow is picked up because we judge and separate from our self, then others and life.

When we pick up the 4th light arrow, we say YES to loving our self for the sheer pleasure of doing so.  Our hearts open and we connect to self, life, others, and Spirit.  The gift from the Universe is the 4th Rainbow Arrow where we gain wisdom, alignment, balance and harmonic resonance through the alignment with all forms of all things.  Logic, knowledge and wisdom can only be received by a flexible, open free-thinking mind whose intent is to be in balance and harmony with all the Worlds of Grandmother Earth.

 

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Gaining Trust & Innocence

background-84678_1280

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.

 

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Introspection

symbol-772212_1280

By consistently picking up the second Light Arrow of Self-Appreciation, we break the 2nd dark arrow of dependencies.  We then gain the 2nd Rainbow Arrow of Introspection, which is the place of “going within” and listening to our body knowing. It is the place of death, change and movement.

It is also through our proper alignment with the four worlds of Grandmother Earth that we gain this Rainbow Arrow.  Introspection makes us aware of Grandmother Earth, the second Power of the Universe, and we feel the earth under our body. From the depth of introspection and intuition, we know that we are in relationship with all forms of life. Earth is our substance.  We experience the inter-connectednes, inter-reliability, and inter-dependence with all the worlds of Grandmother Earth.

7 Arrows – Rainbow Arrow of Illumination

woman-591576_1280

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.

ChuaTaKaMa means choreography of energy in motion. It is the key to this teaching. ChuaTaKaMa is broken down into three aspects — NEEDS, WANTS and DESIRES.

  1. CHUATA is the moment of choosing long-term pain for the sake of short-term pleasure. This choice is prompted by NEED. We all have certain basic reality needs, without which we truly suffer and need help to experience pleasure and beauty. They are food and water, tools and skills, shelter and clothing, healing and knowledge, free will and orgasticness.

Once these reality needs are met and we still claim to NEED something or someone, we are opting for pain rather than pleasure. These are the choice points that signal a necessary death experience. These are the emotional shock points necessary for maturation to occur.

  1. CHUAKA is the moment of choosing short-term pain for long-term pleasure. Recognizing emotional shock points for what they are, we re-interpret what we claim to need as WANTS. Rather than staying stuck in pain, we let go of the “need” and get ourselves moving out of the patterns of pain into greater self-reliance and pleasure. It is in these moments that we learn that death brings life.
  2. CHUAMA is learning through pleasure without pain. Having reached adequacy in reality needs and accessing life through our wants, ChuaMa leads us to ways that make DESIRES (dreams of beauty) come true. These are experiences of rebirth.

CHUATAKAMA is the proper use of all of our choices within a given resource circle of possibilities. Life is a choice: do we choose the dark (as defined by another and caught off balance within our patterns of pain) or do we choose the light (centered within our own circle and aligned with all forms of all things)?  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.

Seven Arrows

quiver_1280When something happens, we choose our response. This choice becomes our action and colors our perception of what continues to happen.  We are the Bow. The Quiver of Arrows is our resource circle of choice in self-expression. The Target is ourselves, life and others. What arrows we shoot is determined by our attitude and approach to life.   We are both “she/he who will not see” (our Shideh or lower Self) and “she/he who is learning or has learned to see” (Hokkshideh or Higher Self). Which one is operating as we reach into the Quiver?

The Quiver is formed by our molding, sculpting and armoring. Simply put, this means that our resource circle is only as full and accessible as our life experience and process of self-development have made possible to date.  The Quiver contains three sets of seven Arrows: seven Dark Arrows colored by pain and reaction; seven Light Arrows colored by pleasure and responsibility; seven Rainbow Arrows which are the gifts of transformation and beauty. The latter are magickal arrows in that they are gifts to us from the Universe when we choose from the place of “learning to see”.
