Red Dragon is your Conscious Self
- who you are and who you are becoming.
Red Dragon represents the root source of life, the nurturance
and support of primary being, and within it are found the primal waters
of unity. This is where your deepest roots receive true nourishment.
Red Dragon is the energy of form contained within the formlessness of
the primordial sea.
Primal trust means making choices with no guarantees,
knowing that divine nurturance will provide what is needed for your
journey. It means making choices moment by moment, implicitly trusting
your innate steering mechanism of heart-knowing. Primal trust implies
surrendering to the will of the divine self, letting go of what your
ego deems to be control of the outcomes in your life. It means deeply
trusting the processes that are at work within your present spiral of
The energy of Red Dragon asks you to embrace the depth of your receptivity.
Perhaps you have been taught that it is better to give than to receive.
Giving is a powerful way to learn how to receive, but it is not the
whole picture. There is a circuit of completion in giving and receiving
that happens within you and in your external world at the same time.
If you trust unconditionally in the giving, you are not attached to
how the gift is received. When you freely give, you fill your cup with
sweet waters, which you can then offern innocently and purely to another.
Know, on one level, that your gift is poured out universally regardless
of how it appears to be received. However, when the gift comes from
the ego, it is limited by expectations and conditions. Love just is.
It is neither given nor taken; rather it is simply discovered and allowed.
The universe is an inseparable whole. Red Dragon represents the energy
matrix lines that look like a web in the universe, through which all
points are connected in time and space. This energetic web of communication
is known as the 'crystal grid network.' It is a cauldron of creation,
a potent field in which all things are not only possible but constantly
being created. Within this grid, the linear causality of time and space
has been freed into an open system in which all time and all space exist
and interact simultaneously. This grid connects the larger holograms
of reality with our own. Its energy lines connect all places, times
and events - even those that are seemingly unrelated. All phenomena
and all actions are part of this larger whole; it is the very foundation
for telepathy and synchronicity. Red Dragon embodies unity, in which
all things are one with the Source.
Red Serpent is your Higher Self &
"I am the flint and tinder of the sacred fire,"
reads the meditation for Red Serpent. In the Great Mystery, flint and
tinder represent the instinctive combustion that initiates movement
in the physical body toward union with Spirit. When flint and tinder
are brought together, the spark of divinity awakens and ignites the
fire of your essence. Red Serpent invites the purifying spark of the
sacred fire, the kundalini, to align and integrate your body, mind and
spirit. Red Serpent can help you uncover apparent blockages in specific
chakras to clear an align them. If you are working on a process of purification,
invite Red Serpent to assist you.
Red Serpent's symbol is the serpent, representing healing and wholeness.
This Mayan medicine can remove toxins,
rejuvenate and transform dis-ease. Red Serpent is also known by
the Maya as the kultanlilni, or kundalini, the energy that moves up
from the base of the spine and out through the crown chakra. There are
two aspects of this force, the ida and the pingala, representing its
male and female polarities. One of the ancient secrets of Red Serpent
is the activation of higher states of consciousness through balancing
these two polarities so that they dance within us as one. Another metaphor
for this serpent energy comes from the Mayan words luk umen tun ben
can, or "those absorbed by the serpent of the sacred knowledge."
When the seven chakras are fully activated, one experiences an enlightened
Red Serpent represents the basic structural apparatus of your motivations,
instincts, desires, and your innate movement toward wholeness. Red Serpent
asks you to shed the skin of your past and step into the fires of alchemical
transmutation. In this, rebirth is revealed. This desire is an innate
response encoded in the depths of your being.
With the energy of Red Serpent, you learn to use the innate intelligence
of the body. In this culture you may have become separated from this
wisdom. It works like this: when you suppress and ignore your issues,
your body receives and retains the unconscious metaphors of that which
is ignored. This may be expressed through physical symptoms that bring
your unconscious issues to conscious awareness. When this happens, work
toward a more conscious relatonship with your body - and work with the
physical metaphors in order to heal yourself on all
The body has a specific kind of consciousness through which messages
are clearly delivered. In fact, the body itself is a living metaphor
that mirrors your mind, emotions and spirit. However, the body also
remembers all it has experienced, and consequently holds the consciousness
of the past within it, including past wounds and traumas. In healing
these, remember the innocence of your body. Treat it with love and respect.
Open yourself to be aware of its messages and metaphors rather than
storing them. Be willing to look at the positive intent beneath any
symptoms or physical process your body is using to communicate. Explore
whatever it may be asking you to see.
In this alignment process, you can use images or energies that come
to you in meditation or dreams. Journey through your body to catalyze
and explore any sensations, colors, shapes, or images. In these times
we have a profound opportunity to transcend both our physical and our
spiritual genetics. The body's integration provides an unparalleled
opportunity for personal evolution. Learn to expand and utilize your
senses to access your body's wisdom and vitality. Don't 'think' about
it; simply allow your body to sense intuitively the solutions
necessary for change and growth.
Red Serpent also represents the connection between powerful physical/ecstatic
experiences and the light of higher consciousness. This is an initiation
of awakening through the body and senses, rather than in negation
of them. As Jose Arguelles says in The Mayan Factor, "Like the
Maya, we shall understand that the path to the stars is through
the senses." Within the body are held the keys to fully awakening
our consciousness. This deeper understanding is expressed in tantric
practices, where spirituality and sexuality are integrated and honoured
as a means to enlightenment. Red Serpent represents the integration
of mind, body and spirit.
Red Serpent is associated with the sacred tools of the drum and the
rattle. Drums and rattles can break down old patterns or bring energy
Yellow Sun is your Subconscious Self and Hidden Helper.
Yellow Sun is a reminder that you are, at every moment,
in the center of All That Is. In your journey of remembrance, you are
crafting a light body to return to a home in the stars that you never
really left. Return as a child of the sacred to the Great Central Sun!
You are the crown of creation, infused with the blueprint of solar mind.
You are a Godseed, the reflection of cosmic consciousness. You are love
Discover the simple secret encoded in Ahau's star-glyph: you are unconditional
love, the stone of indestructible liberation. Radiate that knowing in
all your thoughts and actions. Love all of creation. Join the dance
of light, the fundamental constant of nature, and shine forth the clarity
of your true essence. There is great power in simply identifying with
the light: "As above, so below." You are in God, and God is
As you express unconditional love, you become more than you previously
perceived yourself to be. You become illumined, the full manifestation
of your divinity. In the embrace of your humanity, accept yourself and
others unconditionally. Magnify your full presence. Ahau will come in
myriad forms to assist you. Be limitless. Accept and understand the
nature of judgement, fear, light and dark within yourself and others.
Love and accept yourself and others as you are, freed from previous
boundaries. You are the dawning of the solar age.
As you move toward your core of light, you will find a clear-light awareness
that is innately innocent. In this place, the mind is restored to it's
original state of receptivity. Clarity and freedom become expressions
of being, and bliss becomes the body. At this core of light, a new reality
is born. From the union of the divine masculine and feminine is birthed
the solar androgyny of cosmic consciousness.
Blue Monkey represents your Challenge
and Gift. With maturity and awareness this challenge will turn into
a Focus. This is what you desire to learn in this lifetime.
There are many facets to Blue Monkey's shadow. The most
common of these is not seeing the humour in life's experiences. If you
take life too seriously, humour may offer the relief of an unexpected
point of view. Follow your divine child, and you will be shown how to
"play" your way through any apparently difficult situation.
Humour is a great healer and teacher, and a wonderful way to lighten
up about enlightenment.
Another prominent shadow of Blue Monkey is avoiding speaking your truth.
Do you use humour to express things that you are afraid to say to someone
honestly and directly? Do you use humour to hide your vulnerability?
Perhaps you use sarcasm because you feel wounded, insecure or unable
to express your deep feelings. Such use of humour is a way to bring
out hidden anger or aggression. If you find yourself caught in inappropriate
play, consciously step out of it and bring in the missing awareness.
Trust your magical child to be vulnerable. Express your feelings - especially
your awkwardness - in a direct way. Let go of using pretense or humour
as means of masking your true feelings. Like the divine child you are,
allow all emotions to be OK, and freely express them
The issue of sensitivity also lies in the shadows of Blue Monkey. Perhaps
your inner child was unthinkingly wounded or suppressed by social expectation.
Perhaps your gift of sensitivity was not supported by parental figures
or the culture at large. In order to protect yourself from this criticism,
you may have withdrawn, supprssed your self-expression and creativity,
or become absorbed in fantasy worlds. Honestly examine any dynsfunctional,
hidden reactions or set patterns you may have that resulted from such
woundings. Transform this shadow by becoming aware of your emotional
reactions and perceptions of insensitivity. Then express the feelings
around it before you get too deeply enmeshed in the cycle of emotional
In Western culture, many people have a distorted understanding about
what it is to be a human being. We are often taught that successful
adults are responsible, serious, rigid, controlled, and goal oriented.
In your journey with society, your developmental stages may have been
incomplete. The natural sensitivity, fluidity and freedom of the child
may have been left behind in partial passage. Perhaps your inner child
was wounded or treated insensitively, and you carried this unresolved
process into adulthood. Blue Monkey encourages you to bring forth this
incomplete or wounded part for integration and healing.
This process implies a bounteous connection between Essence Self and
Spirit, freed from judgement, denial and separation. It encourages an
unconstrained experience of feelings, living your dreams and visions,
where everything is sacred and so, by nature, humourous and joyful.
Live your dreams! The moment is now. In this co-creative
process, your life literally becomes a work of art and the dawning of
the new myth.
In this new myth, your spontaneous, divine child will usher in and anchor
the new frequency. How can you heal your inner child? Explore what truly
gives you joy. Find types of work that support your sensitivity and
create deep satisfaction. Be simple: love, play, dance, draw, colour,
sing. These activities are for all divine children - they serve the
expression of the magical child in everyone. Consciously make time for
the joyful freedom and magic of play!
White Mirror is your Compliment - something that comes
naturally to you.
White Mirror represents the Hall of Mirrors, where you
can face your own reflection and see the truth about yourself. As a
mirror, White Mirror merely reflects what is, whether truth, beauty
or illusion. Here you can face unfinished business, the dissonance of
difficulties, or charged issues that would keep you from the full expression
of your Divinity. Become aware of any illusions or distortions within
yourself; your clarity of perception will transform them. Take a moment
to see yourself as you actually are, shadow and all,
freed from the maze of mental illusion.
Sometimes you may find yourself reacting rather than freely responding
to a situation or person. If you have charged reactions such as frustration,
anger, fear, judgement or jealousy, look at how you might be projecting
these issues onto someone else. The world is the mirror for you to truly
see. Any strong reaction to a person or event signals an issue to work
on in yourself. Be willing to examine and utilize what you see in your
mirrors, in order to transform dysfunctional belief systems, negative
thoughtforms, and fixed patterns.
In the Hall of Mirrors there is no good or bad, no right or wrong -
there is only the reflection of what is. As you learn
to see yourself, you begin to see your emotional reactions as signs
indicating where to focus your awareness for growth.
On this quest, come prepared to face White Mirror's sword of truth and
purification. The wisdom of this sword penetrates, exposes, and ultimately
heals your illusions. Discrimination is tempered with love cleanly cuts
away everything that does not serve your evolution. To the Maya, White
Mirror is the flint that hones your sword.
The greatest gift of the sword is the power of forgiveness. A profound
freedom emerges from forgiveness, the releasing of the illusion of cause
and effect. Use the great gifts offered in this blad of truth and light
to forgive and release anything you may judge or see as imperfect.
You are already an Enlightened Being!
White Mirror's are able to clearly reflect others back to themselves
once their own mirror is clear.
Your Tone is Tone 13 - Cosmic
Wild card, unseen forces, unexpected change, open system,
touch of destiny, interdimensional shift.
Thirteen is the ray of universal movement, the
foundation of self within the foundation of Essence Self combined with
the rhythm of the trinity. The Cosmic Tone of 13 touches you with the
hand of unseen forces and radical change. It will catalyze into movement
whatever resists change or is unexamined or stationary. You are being
touched by fate, moved through identifications of self into open consciousness.
Olin, the Mayan goddess of movement, asks you to surrender
to the perfection of the larger pattern of your Essence Self. From the
perspective of surrender and trust, what movement is being called for?
Pay attention to synchronicities and seeming coincidences that jump
into your awareness. Thirteen provides the possibility of a radical
"frequency shift," offering you limitless new openings. Become
a skywalker. Be open and flexible, allowing changing reference points
to become dynamic allies. Open to the workings of destiny offered by
