are large aquatic mammals, with prominent flippers and short, dense
fur. They are found in all the oceans of the world. The best known are
the sea lions (Zalophus californianus) and the Alaskan fur seal
(Callorhinus alascanus). These members of the Otariidae family have
small external ears and front limbs that are as large as those behind.
ancient Romans believed that a seal skin could protect against thunder
storms and lightening strikes. Several European myths and faery tales
tell of seal people who could lay aside their skins temporarily and
live on land. Some Scottish and Welsh families claim seal ancestors.
The Mackays of Scotland are known as sliochd an roin (descendants of
the seal); one of the old lairds tricked a seal woman into marrying him
by hiding her cowl or skin. When she finally managed to find it again,
she returned to the sea, leaving behind her husband and child.
Attributes: Protection. When faced with changing the life completely.
When facing a separation or divorce. Protection from malicious gossip
or physical danger.

Show me how to slide easily through the waters of life,
How to wisely choose companions and revel in the joys of living.

Sensuality and the Skunk
Keynote: Sensuality, Respect, and Self Esteem
Cycle Of Power: Year-round
skunk is one of the most widely recognized mammals, but it is also one
of the most misunderstood. It is a very powerful totem with mystical
and magical associations. It teaches how to have respect, expect
respect and demand respect. It helps you to recognize your own
qualities and assert them. The skunk, Mephitis, is known in both Europe
and the United States. They have long, thick black fur, with two white
stripes running from the neck to the back of the legs, and a bushy
tail. They are about the size of a house cat. Ordinarily, skunks are
peaceable, friendly creatures. They are slow and deliberate in their
movements. When menaced, however, the skunk can emit a nasty spray that
can be smelled for half a mile. Deodorized skunks are sometimes kept as
pets and are very much like cats in their habits. Many farmers believe
that skunks keep the rodent population under control. Striped skunks
breed in late winter or early spring. The den, lined with vegetation,
can be a hole abandoned by another animal or a new one dug by the
skunk. There the female produces one to ten young after a gestation of
59 to 77 days. The offspring suckle for eight to ten weeks and then
follow the mother, hunting for food. Males remain solitary during the
summer. Females and their young often den together—sometimes with one
male—for the winter sleep, which is not a true hibernation. Skunks give
a churring sound when disturbed. They also growl and screech.
skunk smell is one that almost everyone can recognize. This has links
to how skunk awakens in others a greater recognition of you and your
own abilities. The sense of smell also has ties to sensuality and
sexuality. Fragrance has long been used as an aphrodisiac. Those with
skunk medicine will find that the use of fragrances will elicit dynamic
responses in those they associate with. Also, a study of aromatherapy
would be very beneficial for those with this totem. When skunk shows
up, you can usually expect to experience stronger sexual responses to
others and in their response to you. A greater ability to attract
people will begin to unfold.
The skunk does not get out of the way
of any animal. It moves along at its own speed, with its own mind. It
is self assured and confident in itself. Skunks are fearless. Because
they are peaceable by nature, they always give warnings before
spraying. This warning involves three stages. First, it will stomp its
feet and turn its back to you. Second, it will raise its tail up. When
the third step arrives, it is usually too late! After raising the tail,
the skunk will look back over its shoulder to line up the correct angle
for spraying. Once the skunk has seen you over its shoulder, it is too
late. It can spray 12 to 15 feet with great accuracy. It can repeat the
spraying 5 to 6 times before it must build up again naturally.
The skunk sprays it odor on its tail and then flips the droplets at the
aggressor. Not true; when that back end faces you with the tail raised,
watch out! The glands at the root of the tail have strong squirting
Magickal Attributes: For courage and willpower to raise a
“stink” if you are being harassed or threatened. Radiating self respect
and self confidence. Become aware of the type of people attracted to
you and repel the undesirable. Sifting out and getting rid of “friends”
who do not want you to succeed. Adaptability. It indicates lessons and
times associated with increased sensuality physically, sexually,
physically and spiritually. Examine self image. Remember that people
are going to notice you. How they notice and remember can be controlled
I will not tolerate abuse in any form.
I have power!
I will not let others use me.
I am a divine child!
I will sift out friends, keeping the good.
That is my responsibility!
Like the skunk, I will learn when to be disagreeable.
That is my right!

Your Animal Spirit for Today
Snake slithered into your world today? If so, you are being asked to
undergo a major transformation. Are you willing to shed your old skin?
Are you willing to let go of people, places, and things that no longer
have a place in your life? Snake will help you make the grand
transformation, then slide into a new life that's brimming with
power of snake medicine is the power of creation. It is the knowledge
that all things are equal in creation, and that those things which
might be experienced as poison can be eaten, ingested, integrated,
transmuted if one has the proper state of mind. Snake is the symbol for
change. He sheds the old skin, rids himself of all that is useless and
is born once again. He teaches us to use change to transmute a
situation that is stuck. Are you ready to leave a job, clean out the
house, or transform a relationship? Or do you need snake's fiery energy
of transmutation to help you move past an old belief? Look around your
life and get rid of everything that no longer serves you. Many believe
that Snake medicine people to be very rare. In some cultures, to have
Snake medicine means that the initiate has probably been bitten
numerous times by poisonous snakes and survived. The power of Snake
medicine is creative. It is being able to shed the old and create the
new, just as the snake sheds its old skin and emerges as a whole new
creature. As the snake crawls away, it leaves its old "life/skin"
behind, never looking back and thus creating a new beginning. This
medicine can serve as a powerful metaphor for those wishing to break
Serpent moves in all directions, sliding easily around the medicine
wheel. In ancient traditions, serpents were used in worship, healing,
and to invoke the Goddess. When the Goddess rises within you, serpent
rises too. Imagine serpent uncoiling toward the sun. Serpent is the
tongue of fire and the giant bolt of lightening. Yet, she can take
hold of her own tail, forming a perfect circle, or coil with herself or
another serpent, at once joined and seperate.
When you embody
the spirit of serpent, passion will rise within and set you on fire.
She can strike like lightening and transform your future in an
instant. She comes from the ground or caves, resonating with the
untapped potential energy of the earth. As she surrounds you, she
opens her mouth and takes you in whole, only to rebirth you.
The serpent also embodies transformation and renewal. Snakes shed
their skins, and emerge as if reborn. When you become serpent, you
shed you old self and emerge anew.
Serpents have long been
associated with healers, venom medicines, poison, liniments, magick.
They heal, but mishandled, they can kill.
The serpent says, "I
am electric, filled with energy. I am the joining of the earth and
sky. When your passion rises, I uncoil from the base of your spine,
bringing you the power of the Goddess to heal, transform and renew.
When you see out the eyes of the serpent, you shed your old skin and
Serpent is about energy rising and rebirth.

Key Words: Power, transformation, shedding, rebirth, healing, spirituality, intuition
The Big Picture:
Expect profound change in some area of your life. Snake is always yang
(male energy), and may relate to a husband, father, or brother. Or, it
may be addressing the yang energy in yourself or someone close to you.
The type of snake and where you see it are important. If the snake is
in the house, connect the meaning to what it’s doing and what the room
represents to you.
A rattler indicates a
spiritual quest of some kind and an emphasis on nocturnal activities,
lucid dreaming, vivid dream recall, astral travel. A garter snake
suggests help from someone close to you. A common black snake
symbolizes sexuality, yours or someone else’s, or that sexual issues
are involved. Any kind of snake indicates healing and power.
Your sex life heats up. Passion soars to the forefront of your life. If
you find a snake’s skin, then perhaps you need to re-evaluate an
existing relationship. Have you outgrown the relationship?
A profound change in your income or in your spouse’s income is
indicated. This can be either positive or challenging, depending on the
type of snake and the location of the experience.
If you’ve been thinking about changing work or careers, the appearance
of snake suggests that the change is just around the corner. Take
advantage of an opportunity. Don’t procrastinate.
If you have been ill or are recovering from an illness or injury, then
expect vast improvement and healing on many levels. Snake’s appearance
can also indicate that someone around you is being healed. Again, the
details surrounding your experience hold vital clues to the meaning.
Awakening sexuality. Is there a teenager in your home? Snake’s
appearance indicates a profound change within the family structure, a
new birth, the death of an elderly parent or relative, or even a move
that impacts everyone involved. Again, note the details surrounding the
Snake presages new ideas and opportunities in your creative life. You
encounter new people who are helpful to you in achieving your goals and
you are now able to embrace new, exciting experiences that relate to
your creative passions.
Spirituality: Rebirth and resurrection. Your world view changes dramatically. Embrace it.

Your Animal Spirit for Today
represents a connection between past and future, to remind you that the
web you weave today is the web you will inhabit tomorrow. Are you
spinning a balanced future? Spider is also a creator, spinning stories
just as easily as she does a web. Spider in your reading asks you to
consider the future you are weaving-does it include your biggest dreams?
Teachings of the Spider
shape of the spider and the number of its legs both show the number
“eight,” which represents infinity. The spider embodies the unlimited
number of possibilities within creation. Doubling the number “four”
indicates both the four winds and the four cardinal points.
spider instructs us to accept responsibility for anything that happens
in our lives. We weave the web of our destiny. The victims who become
caught in the web have not yet understood this lesson and have become
entangled in a reality that appears to be unchangeable.
spider teaches that each being is responsible for its own plan of life.
It is important not to lose ones self in deceptions of the senses, and
it is helpful to write down one’s progress to remember how certain
strategies have let to success. The spider also stands for the
development of writing.

Key Words: Creativity, self expression, camouflage, self protection
The Big Picture:
When spider enters your life, be sure to notice the details. Who, what,
where, and when, are good places to start. Who, if anyone, were you
with? What happened, and what kind of spider was it? Where did the
encounter happen? The significance of an experience will be different
if you walked into a spider’s web than if you woke up and found a
spider crawling on your chest. When, refers to the time of day or
night, the season, the environmental conditions, and anything else that
might provide insight to the experience.
you’re bitten, then the meaning of the experience is obviously vastly
different than if spider drops onto your desk as you’re working.
If you’re single or un-committed, then you’re about to meet someone who
will share your creative interests and passions. The relationship could
evolve into a creative partnership. If you’re committed or married,
then the relationship may be taking a decidedly creative turn. There’s
good chemistry here.
You’re called upon to be more creative in the way you earn money, or it
may be time to start earning your daily bread by doing what you love
most. Or, it could be a combination of both. The nuances lie in
details: the kind of spider, where the experience occurred, and what
you were doing at the time.
At some point during the next six months, you may change jobs or
careers to do something more in line with your creative interest. Be
alert to synchronicities that will guide you toward your new direction.
It’s a time to tie up loose ends, put the past to rest, and get on with
what you really want to achieve.
The web you spin with your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs, has a
direct bearing on your health. If you have nagging health problems,
look for the metaphor. Stiff joints, for instance, may alert you to a
rigid belief in some area of your life. Toxic emotions, like bitterness
and anger can lodge in your body unless you release the emotions and
understand the source.
It’s time to spend time with your family, doing things that everyone
enjoys. Have your kids express their thoughts and desires about what
they would like to do as a family. Whether you’re planning a weekend or
a long vacation, get everyone involved.
Explore the vastness of your own creativity. Research Jungian
archetypes, ancient patterns, primal energies. Books can be helpful in
this regard, but the real meat lies within your own unconscious. Find
the times of the day or night when you feel most creative. Set aside
time each day to indulge your creative interests. If you want to pursue
your creative interests as a career, then set goals that are reasonable
and work towards those goals each day. But remember: True creativity is
about how you live your daily life.
Spirituality: Creativity is one path toward the exploration of your spiritual beliefs. The two are intimately connected.

The Call of the Swan
Blessings for Opening the Heart
The Swan Kingdom through Karen Danrich “Mila”
June 14, 2002
Swan Kingdom holds the vibration of Divine Union in the new astrology
that has been anchored upon earth late last year. This astrology was
explored in “A New Astrology for A New Millennia”
channeled through Mila in December 2001. Each of the species that have
written thus far in the “Inspirations from the Nature Kingdoms” section
upon our web site are gatekeepers for human evolution. What do we mean
by this? Gatekeepers? And with nature kingdoms holding a gate for
humanity? Is not humanity a fully conscious species, and should not
humanity hold the gate for nature?
yes, this once was so; humanity held the gate for nature, but humanity
has fallen into great forgetfulness and is insufficient to the task at
this time. It is not only humanity that nature holds a gate for, but
also the dolphin and whale species as well and in this time in
history. It was determined by solar and universal counsels overseeing
earth’s ascension that nature has fallen less into distortion in the
nonphysical than humans, dolphins and whales. Therefore we are more
suited to the role of gatekeeper than the fully conscious species at
is not to say that nature does not experience physical distortion, as
we too have fallen into the patterns of aging, death and disease along
with consumption of flesh within our genetic materials. Our fall
mimics a fall in consciousness into such preoccupations that occurred
amongst the fully conscious species that are more or less at cause.
Nature fell because humans and dolphins and whales held the gate for
nature, but fell in consciousness. Nature only mimics the thought-form
of fully conscious species, and therefore as such thought-form became
distorted, so we also became distorted. Although this distortion is
physical, it is not necessarily nonphysical in nature.
the nonphysical, nature has retained its unity. Therefore solar and
universal counsels determined that we were better guardians in our
remembrance and could hold a pure gate of unity for all other species
to cross through in ascension. Furthermore, nature chooses not to have
a “gatekeeper” again. Nature now chooses to become it’s own
gatekeeper, and return to the state of unity and sovereignty that we
once knew in both biology and energy field long ago.
is ascending beloved; and we invite humans, dolphins and whales to come
along for the ride. Nature will hold a gate open for all who so
chooses to join us at this time; however we cannot hold this gate open
forever. The gate we hold will be available through 2035. After 2035,
each species must cross over to a fully conscious biology and unity
based relations in both the physical and nonphysical realms. As
humans, dolphins and whales cross into full consciousness again,
entering the dance of world service and becoming a steward of earth in
full, humans, dolphins and whales will become one’s own gatekeeper.
Mila and Oa have crossed over into such a state in late 2001.
is the role of gatekeeper? Gatekeeper assures that all who ascends
enters an increasing level of harmlessness and unity that is expressed
both physically, nonphysically in energy movement, and in the
unconscious dreamtime realities surrounding earth. It is nature that
monitors the tests of ascending initiates in human, dolphin and whale
form who are both map carvers and map followers. It is nature that
assures that no human, dolphin or whale ascends into greater disunity
or in other terms, splits light and dark causing increasing unconscious
harmfulness towards one another or towards earth. Such increasing harm
would prevent further global ascension otherwise, and so this is an
important role that we hold.
have been many cases of harm perpetrated through ascending human map
carvers. Humans have the tougher time ascending in harmlessness as
compared with dolphins and whales. Perhaps this speaks of the
electrical veils that surround human civilization through the very
technology that humanity relies upon. The number of acts of
unconscious harmfulness coming through dolphins and whales are less
than 1% in comparison to the harm flowing through human initiates
overall. Much of such human harm comes through the failure to open the
heart in ascension.
is opening the heart so imperative in ascension? An open heart allows
for a state of divine union between body soul and earth. It is only as
soul communes with form that compassion is learned and expressed and a
harmless state retained. The purpose of ascension is to move beyond
harmful ways. Harm includes judgmental thought-form, that when
expressed, sends energetic blows to the one who is judged. Harm
includes thought-form that is mental to the exclusion of emotions.
you see, humans have fallen into a thought-form that is electrical in
nature and devoid of emotion; such thought-form includes energy
dynamics that utilize straight-line movement known as cords. Cords and
straight line energy cut up the rotational energy flow one ascends into
the further that one master’s the initiations in ascension. Such
straight-line cords can send blows of harm while humans engage in
“mental only” activities and thoughts or judgment and when soul is not
present in the form to sustain a state of harmlessness.
by little, human initiates must give up the straight lined electrical
thought-form altogether, embracing the unity based language of light
thought-form in it’s place. This requires opening the heart, as the
language of light is an emotionally based language, whereas the
electrical thought-form prevailing within human civilization requires
primarily a functional mental body. Most initiates who are gifted at
expressing themselves mentally are also devoid of a functional
emotional body. Therefore ascension requires such initiates to open
the heart, restore the emotional body and learn to feel again.
Otherwise one simply cannot ascend and will remain in the initiations
below 1800 strands at this time.
is Swan that monitors the heart opening in all human initiates. If one
fails to restore enough of the emotional body and open the heart to a
great enough of a degree at any level of mastery, one will be retained
in the vibrational bandwidth below until one masters this part of one’s
initiation. Many human map carvers have ascended into larger
vibrational bandwidths without opening the heart in full, and this has
lead to greater and greater unconscious harm. Such harm in a group of
initiates associated with Mila and Oa last year nearly killed Mila with
blows so great that it took the Source of Earth to hold space for her
survival. It is because of this that new restrictions have been set
surrounding human ascension, and humans must now open the heart in
order to master the initiations to 3000 or 6000 strands that are
allowed by solar and universal counsels overseeing earth’s global
ascension. (See “Solar Counsels Take Charge of Human Ascension” for more information.)
is overseeing the heart opening of all human initiates at this time.
Opening the heart for dolphins and whales is less imperative as they
never fell into a thought-form that was “mental only” or electrical in
nature. The language of dolphins and whales is song based, and has
retained an active emotional body. Therefore dolphins and whales
overall are not having the problems in ascension that humans are; they
are also allowed to ascend to full consciousness vibration provided
that they have the required lineage and ancestry for the job.
the heart occurs in stages. Ascending humans must peel away layer upon
layer of pain, anger and fear that has generally built a wall of
energetic ice that surrounds the heart. This can be intended each day,
week and month of one’s continued ascent to bring to fruition the
opening of the heart. Furthermore, human initiates must retrieve and
restore the emotional body. Ascension brings about balance; one will
have a functional mental, emotional, intuitive and creative body as one
transcends initiation 3000. As one has all four subtle bodies present,
one communes with soul in ease, and soul sustains one’s synthesis and a
harmless state more than not out of any given day.
is synthesis? Synthesis is an alignment of one’s tones of creation
into a rainbow that pushes out forces of the dark that are not of earth
in origin. The tones or colors initiates synthesize into alter from
initiation to initiation mastered. In the initiations to 1024, one
embraces a synthesis of primary tones that are red, green, blue,
yellow, orange, pink, purple and magenta in color. As initiates hold
primary tones more of any given day than not within the field, one has
mastered 1024 to 1800 strands in vibration. One then leaves the old
consensus of thought-form entering a bridge consensus that is primary
toned in color. This primary bandwidth spans the globe and holds all
humans along with all other species who have ascended to this level of
genetic material and thought-form.
and the primary tone range is the bottom most gate that the nature
kingdoms are holding for human ascension at this time. In the coming 8
years, the gate will close, and humans will then have a new gate to
pass through. Why is this? Earth will begin to ascend beyond primary
tones in vibration in 2010. Those who fail to pass through the next
gate will likewise cease to exist in the decade to follow, or upon
entry into the photon belt anticipated in the 2018 timeframe.
who master 3000 must detoxify roughly one half of the electrical
thought-form inherent in the current human language system. This is
seen as a level of clarity within the field in which no white energy
remains, only pastel tones of creation related to the Language of
Light. Some of the language of light may be opaque; and this
designates areas of electrical thought-form yet to be transcended. One
may wish to have an aura photo taken to assess one’s current level of
energy is allowed at 3000, but not for those moving up to 6000 and
mastering Bodhisattva level evolution. Those transcending to 6000 must
have no opaque energy remaining whatsoever, as the initiations are
mastered 100% in the physical. Such a field will be translucent to a
point that one can see the etheric body through the entire field. This
Swan is also monitoring to assure that those mastering Bodhisattva
level evolution in human form are indeed harmless, nonjudgmental and
compassionate in nature, and fully language of light based. Those
mastering such a state enter a new consensus of ascending humans that
synthesize only pastel colored tones of creation more than not of any
are gateways also for the opening of the heart. The heart builds from
3000 to 6000 strands into two chakra systems; one system is triple
sphere in nature; the other is a lotus that begins to open and grow to
500 petals over time. This is the 500-petal lotus of the Bodhisattva;
the Bodhisattva is one who has mastered love, and mastering love
requires an open-heart chakra. The heart opens in stages therefore
from 3000 to 6000 strands as the genetic materials are embodied fully
into the physical. A fully opened heart at 6000 requires modifications
in the thymus gland, lungs and diaphragm to hold the chi necessary to
sustain the energy movement of the lotus. For the 500-petal lotus
reaches outwards up to 300 feet around the Bodhisattva level initiate,
and this requires biology to support such a state of being.
is in mastering love that one learns not to judge; for judgment is
simply a lack of love and compassion for another. No human journey is
easy; no human journey is better or worse than another; one comes to
understand this through the inner process of mastery and examination of
lifetimes related to one’s ancestry in the act of ascension. It is as
one sees that one has been “all things human”, good and bad, right and
wrong, that one then has compassion for all other humans. The state of
compassion comes to be understood upon a biological level as all human
lifetimes for the past 30,000 years of one’s ancestry (120,000 human
years) has been compiled, understood, and the karma released. As one
embraces one’s own ancestry and all of the darkness therein, one learns
to forgive. As one has forgiven one’s own self and inheritance, one
will quite naturally reach out to others in forgiveness and compassion
rather than judgment.
requires an open heart. One cannot forgive if the energy cannot move
through the heart chakra. This requires the wall of ice around the
heart to first be dissolved in the initiations to 3000; and then the
500-petal lotus of the Bodhisattva to open in the initiations to 6000.
Furthermore, one cannot forgive without an active emotional body.
Humans have become polarized, polarized into having only two subtle
bodies that are active and working. Much of the ascent to 3000
involves retrieving and piecing together the two missing subtle bodies
so that one can have all four present and active. It is as all four
subtle bodies are present and active that one feels more “whole”
within. This is why ascension to 3000 causes a greater sense of
internal wholeness, which in and of itself can be a form of
four subtle bodies are an energy system that surrounds the etheric body
of the form. They are much like a bubble that rotates into a
four-petal flower that then engages with the heart. The heart is the
seat of the soul and the seat of the translation between the earth and
I AM Presence or Source. Therefore as the four petals of the subtle
bodies engage with the heart, soul can commune with the form along with
earth. One also becomes mental, emotional, intuitive and creative
simultaneously rather than polarized into an either-or nature. This
allows those attaining 3000 to express their thoughts in ease, learning
to become the dreamer and the dream again.
is as one has all four subtle bodies present that one may exit the
dance of poverty or lack; whether that lack is expressed through a lack
of love or a lack of finances matters not; lack is lack whether it be
lack of enough to pay the rent, buy the food, or the lack of friends
and loved ones who honor to surround oneself with. The initiations to
3000 allow ascending humans to begin to create a very different life
than before ascension and one in which a greater level of fulfillment
can be experienced. (See “Becoming the Dreamer and the Dream” for more information on manifestation.)
in order for fulfillment to be appreciated, one must be able to feel.
Therefore skipping over the opening of the heart and then manifesting
one’s dream leaves one empty; as empty as those with fame and fortune
in present time within the human dance. Swan guides humans not to skip
over this segment of work. Yes it is painful; but the rewards upon the
other end far outweigh the difficulties in the process, for one will
feel the love of one’s soul, feel the love of the earth mother, and
feel the fulfillment when the dream does come true in one’s life dance.
3000, the opening of the heart is mandatory. One cannot become the
Bodhisattva without learning forgiveness and compassion. Those
destined for this role and next phase of ascension are therefore
monitored even more closely than those ascending only to 3000. For
there is little purpose in creating non-compassionate ascended masters
in the human dance, with great power of thought-form and persuasion.
This would only lead to a repeat of the kind of leadership humanity
already experiences that are self-serving in nature. It is just such
self-serving leadership that time and time again took a conflict to
such an extreme that nuclear annihilation was the outcome. Therefore
those attaining this level of power must love, or again all could be
lost upon earth for all time with all species choosing extinction over
one fails to open the heart in the sojourn to 6000, one will be
retained at 3000 in vibration and initiatory level. There has been
many a map carver attempting the ascent to 6000 that has had to be
restrained at 3000 due to a lack of opening the heart in full. Some
managed to create global harm incurring a great global debt to earth.
They will spend the remainder of their life at 3000 settling their debt
with earth. This is neither right nor wrong, however for those
intending to master Bodhisattva, the mirror of those who failed creates
a “lesson” through which one can learn from the mistakes of others,
bypassing a repeat of the same problem in one’s own ascent.
did such initiates fail to open the heart? This is a good question.
For one, Swan perceives that non-emotion is a far easier manner to
exist in human form. For so much of the current human preoccupations
are actually painful to the field and form. If one does not feel, one
can continue to engage with current human entertainment or media and
not feel the harm, or continue to work at a job in front of the
computer and not feel the harm, or continue to be in a relationship
that shatters the field and not acknowledge it. However over time such
preoccupations will cause disease; and the lack of feeling will be the
underlying reason that one did not know enough to change one’s habits.
is through the open heart that those becoming the Bodhisattva navigate
through their continued ascension and master the inner planes of
reality that surround oneself. For the open heart will tell the
Bodhisattva that they have entered a karmic dance in which harmful
blows are sent to the field; now the karma can be addressed and
intended to be released before the shattering of field causes a
physical ailment or cease ascension.
open heart also allows the Bodhisattva to love and feel the love of the
Earth Mother, Soul, God Goddess All That Is and the Tao. It is the
presence of soul that must be felt so that the Bodhisattva can hear
soul well enough to allow soul to direct the life. If one cannot
discern between guidance that is soul driven and forces of the dark
wishing to take one off of one’s path, then what kind of master will
one become? One that is only a pawn of the dark with a large energy
field that can harm earth; and this earth has experienced enough and
has recently transcended in her own ascension and therefore will not
open heart allows the ascending initiate a new and heightened level of
awareness of the nonphysical energetic realms that surround oneself, as
one will feel such realms as though they were physical. It is just
such feeling that is required for continued mastery and discernment.
It is also just such feeling that will cause the initiate to leave the
spouse or partner as the karma is complete as the continued harm in the
dance prevents further ascension; or leave the place of residence that
no longer serves as again the harm flowing therein prevents further
ascension; or leave the job when the karma is complete as again it
prevents further ascension. One will feel the harm of such
preoccupations, as one will be shattered again and again therein. This
requires an open heart, and then one can choose to leave and master the
change into the physical.
to Bodhisattva level evolution requires physical change. One cannot
remain in the same job, home, relationship and friendship and ascend to
such a level of evolution beloved. One must leave behind those that
one is complete with, and leave behind preoccupations that do not serve
ascension. Those mastering their ascent understand this; when the
karma is complete with mom, dad, the spouse, the child, or the job, one
suddenly feels ties that wish to bind one in a prison rather than allow
one the freedom of continued expansion. One then must leave such
things behind so that they cease to compromise one’s continued ascent.
open heart will allow initiates to navigate through physical change by
assessing how any circumstance makes one feel. If it feels like a
prison that continually restricts or shatters oneself, then this is a
sign it is time to leave; and the change will birth further ascension
and mastery as the cords of attachment into the etheric body fly free.
One will feel better as a result of the change than before; however in
order to perceive this, first one must be able to feel, and this
requires an open heart chakra in ascension.
to feel, and fail to leave the job, spouse, family, friends or region
that one lives, and one will become ill in the attempt to ascend to
6000. Why? The continued attachment to the field will create physical
disease in the regions that the attachment plugs into the etheric
body. Those rising in vibration to 6000 strands manifest from
nonphysical to physical in a six to eight month timeframe. Fail to
make a change one should have made six months ago, and six months later
one will have disease in the related part of the form.
the Swan Kingdom also monitors the changes one makes in relation to
becoming Bodhisattva. If the change fails to be made in one’s physical
life that are related to the completion of any segment of karma, one
will be rolled back to 3000 and retained there, as the heightened
vibration in the ascent to 6000 without the release of attachment will
only lead to a premature death. This serves not earth or humanity as
each who attains 3000 assists in holding a particular vibrational
bandwidth imperative to earth’s continued ascent at this time in
question for any initiate becomes, “How badly do I wish to master in
this lifetime? Am I willing to embrace the changes into the life dance
that this requires?” For not all humans are ready for the level of
change that mastering Bodhisattva requires. Far fewer even in Swan’s
estimation are ready for what is required to transcend to Mahavishnu
level evolution, as one must give everything one has attached to away
down to the physical in order to attain such a level of evolution in
harmlessness. And so Swan perceives that the boundaries around
ascension are wise given the high level of attachment in the current
human dance due to the electrical nature of current human thought-form.
human children will have less difficulty. Ascending children will not
create the same attachments as they grow up; for one they will have
transcended the vibration that such attachments are made before making
them. This will cause ascending children and teenagers to be far more
free and liberal, flowing with the physical change and moves along with
the coming and goings of friends and relationships due to karmic
completion. This will allow the ascent of young folk to come forth in
far greater ease than most adult humans. This is how swan perceives
that the ascent to full consciousness shall succeed through future
human generations yet unborn but coming in the next quarter century
into the physical. Such children will be free like the wind to come
and go as necessary in ascension.
what would Swan like to say to human ascending initiates today? Be
free. Open the heart and learn to feel again. Allow the heart to
guide you each step of the way in your continued journey. How does one
listen with the heart? One focuses one’s attention upon the heart
chakra and then listens. What thoughts come into one’s head? These
are the thoughts of the heart; one’s heart will always know the truth;
one’s heart will always know the next step upon one’s path; one’s heart
will never misguide one onto a path that leads one onto a detour in
which mastery cannot be attained.
an initiate is telepathic; all humans are telepathic. Alas often the
forces of the dark speak through the telepathic channels guiding one
into a non-ascension choice. Such forces cannot speak through the
heart, as they are not a part of this creation. Only those species and
souls that are a part of this creation can speak through the heart,
which is the seat for the human hologram within the human species.
Attune to one’s hologram, and one will hear one’s own soul along with
any member of the nature kingdoms with ease. Attune to one’s hologram
and one will hear the Earth Mother and the Tao with ease.
is the rotation of the hologram that determines the vibrational
bandwidth that one is listening to. Spin the hologram and ask any
question one may wish to know and the holographic knowledge understood
by all souls in this creation will be shared, provided one has not
karma for the misuse of such knowledge in one’s ancestry. As the karma
is released, the knowledge is shared freely and openly so that all
species may return “home”. This is the gift of holographic knowledge.
However one must open the heart to begin to be able to attune to such
Swan leaves you with these thoughts; open the heart and one has the
opportunity to master a level of evolution one’s ancestry has not known
for 15,000 to 30,000 years (60,000-120,000 human years). Open the
heart and one may go home. Swan invites humans to open the heart and
return to the dance of unity and joy that once prevailed upon earth.
We will continue to hold the gate open for more to pass through as long
as the ascent of earth allows for it.

Keynote: Awakening to the Faerie Realm--Accomplishment for the Sake of Accomplishment
Cycle of Power: Dusk--Summer
bird is often referred to as a night-hawk, but it is not a hawk. It is
a cousin to the whip-poor-will. It is a bird with a variegated plumage
of white, black, and buff, reflecting that intersection of night and
day known as dusk. Dusk is the time at which the swisher is most
active. It has long been associated with faeries, elves, and the
awakening of spirits. The swisher is a bird of the “Tween Time,” and is
often seen as a transporter or vehicle for those of the Faerie Realm.
The swisher is part of a group of birds that used to be called
goatsuckers because of an age old belief that they sucked the milk of
goats. This probably originated with the folk ideas of mischievous
elves and faeries who helped themselves to milk from goats and cows on
farms near their homes. Many misbehaviors and misfortunes were
attributed to elves and faeries where there was not a rational
explanation. The souring of milk, the disappearance of objects, and
even the stealing of milk was attributed to them. Since swishers and
other “goatsuckers” of European origin were active at dusk and night (
the time of elf and faery activity), they were considered to be the
vehicles for those of the Faerie Realm. The swisher has a short bill
and a wide mouth. It hunts at dusk and it feeds on insects that are
captured and eaten in flight. They are most conspicuous and active at
dusk and night. This reflects much about those who have a swisher as a
totem. They will often find themselves so active that they seem to live
on the run. It will be important for those who have a swisher come into
their lives to pay attention to the “Tween Times--dawn, dusk, midnight,
noon, all times that are neither one nor the other. These will be times
of greatest inspiration and power. You will find yourself more
affective in all of your activities. The swisher is more often seen
than heard. Many people see them at night, but often don’t realize what
they are seeing. Many see this again as a direct correspondence to
faeries and elves, with them being around and not being noticed. If a
swisher has come into your life, you may wish to examine aspects of
your life activities. Are you feeling neglected? Are you neglecting or
not honoring important others in your life? Are you trying to get
attention when you should be focusing on just accomplishing your tasks?
Are you, or others around you forcing attention? Are you feeling caught
in the middle and as if you are not accomplishing things? The swisher
will teach you to do your life tasks, and to do them well just for the
sake of doing them, rather than for extraneous attention. It will teach
you that there is no need to blow your own horn. When you do your job
well, others will do that for you.
swisher builds no nest of its own. It lays its two eggs upon the bare
ground. This in itself is highly significant. It needs no glamour. It
sees the earth as its nest, and it brings forth creative life. The two
eggs also have significance for those who wish to explore the

Teaching of the Swift
Keynote: Speed and Agility in the Great Quest--The Magic Elixir of Saliva
Cycle of Power: Evening
swift is a small bird with wings that are swept back and stiff. Its
flying is quick, and as its name implies, very swift. Its tail is short
and barely shows, reflecting a need to not drag one’s feet in any
endeavor. If swift has flown into your life, you should be asking
yourself some questions. Are you not acting on opportunities when they
present themselves? Are you, or others around you hesitating too much?
Are you trying to do things too quickly and losing control in the
process? The swift is a bird that can teach us how to respond to people
and situations in life with speed and agility. It teaches us how to
take advantage of any opportunity that arrives. The swift is most
active in the evening, but it can be found feeding at almost any time
of the day. This reflects its ability to assess and respond to
opportunities with speed. The swift teaches us that hesitation can
truly create loss of opportunity. The swift makes a cup-shaped nest,
glued with its own saliva. There is a tremendous mysticism around
saliva and its uses for healing, and its connection to the primal
fluids of life within you. The use of it as a gluing substance reflects
the ability to draw on life energies and fluids for various purposes.
In tantrism and Taoism there is a tremendous mysticism centered around
saliva. The saliva of a sexually aroused woman is credited with great
power, including healing, and the charging of magickal talismans.
Saliva can be used as a “witness” for absent healing. A witness is
anything which will physically represent the person. It is a link to
the person and their energy.
was considered a nectar in some eastern practices, nectar that could
serve many functions. Physiologically, it cools the body and nurtures
the system. The saliva of a woman is considered especially powerful,
powerful enough to heal and prolong life when taken in an aroused
state. Kissing is often explored in tantric and Hindu love practices.
Different kisses serve different functions. Anyone with the swift as a
totem would do well to explore these as they involve the passing of
saliva for specific purposes. Kissing as a form on psychic protection
is very ancient as well. The placing of a kiss (and the saliva) confers
psychic energy and activates psychic centers. The saliva seals and
protects areas of the body most susceptible to disharmony, and it helps
to promote a wider distribution of love energy during sexual activity.
This is reflected in the energies of the swift, as it seals its nest
with saliva. The cup-shaped nest has significance for anyone with a
swift totem. The cup is a symbol for the Holy Grail, the quest of which
leads us to find our spiritual essence and how best to manifest it in
this lifetime. All cups are associated with the feminine energies. A
cup holds and contains elixirs (saliva). It can be used to pour them
out like the horn of plenty. The nest is a reminder to act upon your
feminine energies swiftly and powerfully. Learn to draw forth your
waters and bring to life the magic within. In this, the swift will

Spirit of Snow Leopard
Role ~Guide to the Higher Realms~
Lesson: Self Reliance
Wind: North ~Land of the EIders~
Perceptive Self Reliance Balance
Power of Silence & Mystery Psychic
Understanding the Shadow
Leopards (like all members of the Leopard or Panther Family) are
solitary creatures that hunt, feed and live mostly alone. In fact, the
only time that a Snow Leopard will interact with another of their kind,
is when the female is in estrus, or when she is raising her cubs. Yet
as soon as the female is no longer in estrus, the mating pair will
disperse with each going their own way. Likewise, once the cubs have
reached sufficient maturation, they will be driven off by the mother
(generally the next Spring, around one year after their birth) to face
life on their own, and the she leopard will once more return to her
Leopard Souls are here in part to learn the lesson of Self Reliance.
Like this Totem Spirit that has a mostly solitary life, the Two legged
beside whom Snow Leopard strides, will face many encounters and
situations in their current incarnation which develop the ability to
rely upon and trust the inner Self.
does not mean that these individuals are devoid of the desire to have a
mate, what it does suggest, is that they often do their best thinking
and problem resolution alone, and in fact do require some time alone
with their own thoughts and feelings. If this ~Solitary~ time is not
taken, there is the tendency for the Snow Leopard Soul to feel a
stifling of the spirit, which in turn may leave them snappish or short
tempered with their mate.
lessons experienced that assist in the development of Self Reliance,
can take many forms, though the most common manifestation is is through
abandonment as a repetitive issue. This sense of "rejection" can come
in either the form of actual abandonment (as in a partner leaving), or
with the physical ~transition~ of loved ones.
of how this manifests itself, the end intent behind these lessons, is
to teach Snow Leopard Soul the importance of trusting their inner Self.
these lessons in Self Reliance, we are reminded that it is our Inner
connection to the Divine that is the true source of our Strength. Then,
in listening to that still, small Voice that speaks volumes to our
Soul, we come to realize (through tuning into that Inner Knowing and
following its urging) that we will never be led astray, nor are we ever
Understanding the Power of Silence & Mystery
Leopards are closely linked to Shamans, Medicine Workers and psychics
or intuitives, as it is believed that the Leopard Spirit walks
effortlessly between the plane of the ~Physical World~ and the Blue
Road of Spirit. For the Snow Leopard, this seems even more the case
when one considers the breath taking peaks and ranges that this
splendid creature calls home.
Snow Leopards live in the high mountains of Central Asia, including the
Himalayan Mountains. For millennia, indigenous Peoples have believed
the Mountains to be the home of the ~Gods.~ Hence, all animals that
live within the embrace of the Great Stone People, are held as sacred
brothers and sisters, having a special Role as Messenger between the
realm of the Gods and the realm of Man.
this relates to one with Snow Leopard as one of their Personal Totems
is that one beside whom the Leopard walks may possess an inner knowing,
reverence and respect for the mysteries of Life, Death and Rebirth.
This attribute is often marked by one whose Theme Totem is Leopard as
an aura of mystery or penetrating intensity. These are the natural born
sleuths of the Medicine Wheel, as their keen powers of observation make
it difficult for others to keep secrets from them, though they are
excellent repositories of secrets untold themselves.. Think here of the
light eyes of the Snow Leopard, burning as twin green flames that seem
to peer to the very core of one’s Being, yet always in Silence kept.
All members of the Leopard family are known for their stealth and stalking
In fact, Snow Leopard will stalk his/her prey, gliding through the
trees and along craggy rocks by stepping on the outside of their paws
first, then slowly and carefully distributing their weight upon the
rest of the feet. Walking in this manner, they avoid snapping twigs or
leaves underfoot and thus alerting prey to their presence. Then, once
they are within striking range, the Leopard will leap, grabbing the
prey animal by the back of the neck and severing the spinal cord,
thereby rendering the animal defenseless and in a state of paralysis.
a two legged, this attribute of stealth is a double edged sword, for
when it is translated to the positive manifestation of this energy, a
confidence relayed by another is closely kept by these individuals and
they are reliable and non-judgmental friends who can always be counted
on to keep their silence at the appropriate times.
Yet, the Contrary medicine can be manifested as a ruthless streak in the
who has not fully integrated the ~Shadow Side~ of their nature, thus
making a fearsome and vengeful adversary. Ultimately, when one chooses
to operate from Contrary Medicine, there will be an exceedingly high
cost to be extracted from such vengeful and ruthless behavior. Thus, it
is wise to make certain that the Contrary Medicine has been integrated
so that the true beauty of Snow Leopard’s silence and mystery may
There are several genetic features of the Snow Leopard that gives them an
sense of balance. The primary feature is their thick, long tail which
is heavy enough to act as an appropriate counterbalance when needed,
with the length of the tail usually equaling the length of the body
from tip of nose to the base of the spine.
key feature to their physiology are their large paws that are webbed.
These large, splayed paws act as snowshoes during the long winter
months and allow the Snow Leopard to move quickly across the surface of
the snow. This particular physical feature, coupled with their lengthy
and weighted tail, assists them in keeping balance on ice covered
terrain or slick rock surfaces.
In those moments when the Snow
Leopard Soul is experiencing great emotional turmoil, the sense of
everything feeling off center may be nearly debilitating. These are the
moments when it is important for the one beside whom Snow Leopard walks
to call upon the Medicine of this Animal Ally, and request that he/she
walk beside them in Balance and Confidence. It may help as well to
visualize Leopard leaping gracefully from rock to rock, or from
slippery rocks to secure perches, always maintaining his/her balance
and stability. In so doing, this Totem Spirit is being recognized &
honored for his/her Role beside you on this walk around the Sacred
Hoop, and the Two legged also finds the Center of Calm and Balance that
is the Eye within the Storm..
Understanding the Shadow Within
snow Leopard is an animal that has elicited much thought and
speculation over the centuries. Standing as a mysterious and solitary
figure, he glimmers from the center of myths, legends and ancient
wisdom as a spectral figure dancing between the play of shadows and
beams of light.
beautiful animal treads as softly through our imagination as she does
along the pathways and jagged peaks of her Himalayan home. A ghostly
embodiment of the dichotomy that is ever present in our ~Human Nature~
whilst in flesh, she sounds the call to lead us toward the integration
between Personality and Soul, Shadow and Light, Unconsciousness and
need look no further than to the stunning coat of the Snow Leopard to
see this principle reflected. The primary color of the coat ranges from
creamy white for most of these big cats, to a light tan. This base coat
of creamy white is then overlaid with black rings and rosettes.
the dark rosettes and rings represents the dark realm of the
Unconscious and our fear motivated impulses, the light base coat
reflects the promise of light to be discovered in Conscious Awareness
that is attained through acknowledgment and integration.
the Two legged beside whom Snow Leopard walks, what may at first appear
as a conflict or set of extremes, may later be seen as a merging of two
polar opposites, that when harmoniously conjoined, creates its own
magical and mysterious energy that some philosophies refer to as the
~Yin/Yang~ principle. The key in this instance is the removal of those
things which are counter-productive or harmful for the soul’s growth,
after the lessons that they represent have been thoroughly
acknowledged, learned and absorbed. There is a tremendous surge of
energy that is created when the Soul has truly integrated a lesson, one
that is often felt even upon the physical plane as an “ah-ha” or click.
exists within the Snow Leopard Soul a tremendous reservoir of inner
strength, determination and the awareness of the ~Shadow Self,~ which
they will face with quiet determination and perseverance. Equally, they
are able to see both the shadow and the light of Others, a skill that
can assist those who are not offended by their penetrating insight.
For one who draws this Totem to them, truth, honesty & integrity are cornerstones of their fundamental being.
