Seal Magick

Seals 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.

The 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.

Magickal Attributes: Protection. When faced with changing the life completely. When facing a separation or divorce. Protection from malicious gossip or physical danger.

Chant:

Grant me courage and wisdom to separate myself from

Troublesome people.

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
The 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.
The 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.
Superstitions: 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 power.
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 by you.
Chant:
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

Has 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 possibility.

Snake
The 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 free.
 
Serpent
     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 are reborn."
     Serpent is about energy rising and rebirth.
Bibliography: The Path of the Feather
 

Snake’s Message

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.

Romance: 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?

Finances: 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.

Work/Career: 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.

Health: 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.

Family: 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 experience.

Creativity: 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

Squirrel

Hoard, hoard, hoard! Squirrel has been a busy fellow, gathering food for the long winter ahead—and he advises you to do the same. Have you set enough money aside to get you through lean times, or do you squander what you earn? We all love a shopping spree, but if Squirrel scurries into your reading, he's cautioning you to spend a little, but also save a little.

Your Animal Spirit for Today

Spider

 

Spider 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

The 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.

The 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.

The 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.

Bibliography: Symbols of Native America

 

Spider’s Message

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.

If you’re bitten, then the meaning of the experience is obviously vastly different than if spider drops onto your desk as you’re working.

Romance: 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.

Finances: 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.

Work/Career: 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.

Health: 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.

Family: 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.

Creativity: 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

 

The 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?

 

Well 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 this time.

 

This 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.

 

In 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.

 

Nature 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.

 

What 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.

 

There 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.

 

Why 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.

 

For 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.

 

Little 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.

 

It 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.)

 

Swan 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.

 

Opening 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.

What 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.

 

1024-1800 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.

 

Those 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 mastery. 

 

Opaque 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 given day.

 

There 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.

 

It 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.

 

Forgiveness 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 “homecoming”.

 

The 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.

 

It 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.)

 

However 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.

 

After 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 ascension.

 

If 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.

 

Why 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.

 

It 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.

 

The 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 allow.

 

The 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.

 

Ascension 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.

 

The 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.

 

Fail 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.

 

Therefore 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 history.

 

The 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.

 

Ascending 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.

 

So 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.

 

Many 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.

 

It 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 knowledge.

 

Therefore 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.

 

Namaste

The Swan Kingdom

Swan
Swan medicine teaches us to learn to surrender to the grace of the rhythm of the universe, and slip from our physical bodies into the dreamtime. It teaches us to be at one with all planes of consciousness, and to trust in Great Spirit's protection. The power of the swan lies in accepting the gift of change. As the swan submits to the higher plan of the Great Spirit, it evolves from the "ugly duckling" in its youth to a graceful adult swan. Since it is willing to accept this gift, it is allowed to see into dreams. People with its power can see into the future, because they are willing to let the plan of divine power materialize. The swan teaches to bring consciousness into balance with all levels of being and develop ones intuition. It is important to admit to the ability of knowing about the future. The graceful swan teaches us to "go with the flow," to release struggle and effort, and to know ourselves as beautiful. When we surrender to the spiritual current in our life we let go of the notion of ourselves as the "ugly duckling" and we begin to see ourselves with the grace and beauty of the swan.
They teach us to walk in grace.  Swan teaches us to trust the grace of our being as it operates in both the physical and spiritual planes, and urges us to rejoice in the gifts of our physical bodies and our intuitive minds.

Swisher Teachings

Keynote: Awakening to the Faerie Realm--Accomplishment for the Sake of Accomplishment

Cycle of Power: Dusk--Summer

This 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.

The 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 numerological correspondence.

Sparrow’s Message

Key Words: Adaptability, new opportunities, creativity through music, singing or song writing

The Big Picture: When sparrow flies into your life, the next eleven to fourteen days will be crucial to your creative passions. You may be working longer hours at your creative endeavors, but loving every second of it. Like the song sparrow, your joy at doing what you love will spill over into other areas of your life. Pay special attention to the way you communicate, your tone of voice, what you say, how you say it. Be open to all opportunities that come your way now.

Romance: Your creative endeavors attract a partner whose creative interests are in line with your own. A creative partnership could evolve from this romance, and if it does, it will probably happen rather quickly. Once your energies meld, there’s just no stopping the momentum!

Finances: New opportunities are headed your way. Some risk may be involved, but you’re a survivor precisely because you’re willing to take risks and embrace change.

Work/Career: When sparrow crosses your path, it’s time to walk the talk. If you want to work at what you love, then you need to plan ahead: Save your money, set a date when you’ll leave the nine to five world for good, and do whatever it takes to make this happen. Trust your higher guidance. Be as flexible as your nature allows and don’t dismiss any opportunities, even if they initially seem outlandish or completely off the mark. You can’t predict where such opportunities will lead you.

Health: Be attentive to your diet. If you’ve been thinking about becoming a vegetarian, for instance, then take steps in that direction. If you’ve been considering a regular exercise routine, then start it today. Your point of power lies in the present. Your satisfaction with your work and all the other areas of your life have a direct bearing on your health.

Family: Have you considered a family owned business that expresses your collective creativity? Think about it. If it interests you and your loved ones, begin brainstorming on how you can combine your talents and interests. On a personal level, you may have to commit to more time tending to your children and their concerns.

Creativity: You are entering one of the most creative times of your life. Your finding your creative tempo and voice and may want to experiment with different times of the day and night to create or brainstorm. If possible, try to bring some element of the outdoors into your work area, live plants or a water fountain for example, and make sure your work area overlooks plants, a garden, a pool of water. Investigate Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement. You may need to rearrange the furniture in your work area or use different colors to enhance your chi, energy.

Spirituality: Your creative path and your spiritual beliefs are intertwined.

Teaching of the Swift

Keynote: Speed and Agility in the Great Quest--The Magic Elixir of Saliva

Cycle of Power: Evening

The 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.

Saliva 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 assist you.

Spirit of Snow Leopard

Role ~Guide to the Higher Realms~

Lesson: Self Reliance

Element: Air

Wind: North ~Land of the EIders~

Medicine: Messenger

Keywords

Perceptive Self Reliance Balance

Power of Silence & Mystery Psychic

Understanding the Shadow

Self Reliance

Snow 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 solitary existence.

***Snow 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.

This 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.

The 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.

Regardless of how this manifests itself, the end intent behind these lessons, is to teach Snow Leopard Soul the importance of trusting their inner Self.

***Through 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 truly Alone.***
Understanding the Power of Silence & Mystery

All 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
mighty 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.

***How 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
possessing 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
ability. 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.

In 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
individual 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 manifest.
Balance

There are several genetic features of the Snow Leopard that gives them an
excellent 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.

Another 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

The 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.

This 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 Conscious Awareness.

One 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.

While 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.

For 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.

There 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.
