Red Moon is your Conscious Self -
who you are and who you are becoming.
Red Moon is the cosmic seed of awakened awareness. Consume
it like a fruit, and let it blossom within you. You are on the quest
of self-remembrance, of Godseed. If you work with the energy of Red
Moon with clear awareness and attention, an awakened state of remembrance
will naturally blossom within you. Remembrance means having direct access
to your expanded presence through an intrinsic perception of unity.
Remembrance is your recognition of the larger pattern and your connection
to it, often facilitated through dreams, art, music, colors and creative
pursuits. With focused attention, meditate on Red Moon and you will
receive help with self-remembrance.
Red Moon is also a beacon or transmitting station. As you open to self-remembrance,
you become a beacon and receiver for cosmic consciousness. This communication
creates the gradual opening of the third eye, the eye within the mononlith
of self. As this eye opens and your communication becomes more refined,
you will notice more signs, signals and understanding coming to you.
These are all for your growth and evolution - a feedback system from
which you can gain insight about your journey.
The number for Red Moon is 9, which symbolizes the recurrence of great
cycles. An example of such recurrence is the periodic return of master
teachers to help awaken human beings on Earth. Nine is the number of
Quetzalcoatl, buddha, and Christ. Red Moon is a symbol for great teachers
who have come to translate universal wisdom to humanity, to embody the
awakened state of consciousness that is accessible to all. Such teachers
serve as a connection to the Divine and hold the promise of full self-mastery.
Take off the veil of forgetfulness. Become the beacon of awakened awareness.
As you open to self-remembrance, you will freely receive divine guidance.
Be with others who support your fullest expression.
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.
Use the body as a tool for transformation. Learn how to
use passion and the senses as a means of access and alignment to higher
consciousness. Follow your gut-level intuitions and instincts to make
choices in the moment.
Be willing to look at issues you have concerning intimacy
and sexuality. Make sure that you are not separated from the dance of
passion that is in union with your divine nature. Sense your deeper
desire for union and intimacy. Red Serpent calls on you to awaken your
vitality, body wisdom, and passion for life.
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 Human is your Subconscious Self and Hidden Helper.
Yellow Human is the grail, the golden fleece, the philosopher's
stone, the alchemical transmutation that turns baser materials into
gold. It is the cornucopia, the paradox of emptiness and harvest, the
still place that lies open and fallow, receiving the gifts.
Yellow Human offers you the gift of beginner's mind in the fullness
of union. Be receptive. Yellow Human is preparing your circuits for
transformation. Become empty, that your thirst may be quenched by the
bounteous gifts poured from the chalice of the spiralling galaxies.
Open and receive all that Yellow Human offers in the chalice of your
Eb asks you to strengthen
and clear your physical vessel in order to prepare for the expanded
energies of higher mind. Your chalice of self is being purified through
vibrational adjustments in the brain/body system. With this quickening,
adjustments are made and your circuits of consciousness are naturally
transformed. Often this process is accompanied by the sensation of being
altered or "rewired". Higher centers of the brain and the
light-sensitive pineal and pituitary glands are being activated to contain
more light. This penetration brings you to a critical threshold, creating
enormous change at the cellular level. It also activates soul memories
and expands your concepts of reality.
With this expanded consciousness, your brain/body system is being cleared
and fine-tuned so that you can create a sluiceway for the activation
and acceleration of cosmic consciousness. This penetration of frequencies
and its accompanying quickening is like upgrading the 'hard drive' of
your biocomputer and activating the 'hidden chip,' the unused parts
of your brain.
This is the foundation and awakening of your light body, a body crafted
from the expansion of interstellar light within every cell. This body
exists in and out of time and space and is able to experience and communicate
freely with other dimensions and times. This is the resonant body within
those whom Jose Arguelles calls the Servant-Warriors: "those humans
who fully realize the dream light body within the physical body and
understand the circuitry of the human organism - who use the light body
to navigate the electromagnetic waters which we call the universe."
The development of the light body involves strong interaction between
Spirit and self as you prepare for entrance into the expanded chalice
of Essence Self. In preparing this vessel, you enter into the rites
of passage inherent to cosmic consciousness, and such rites eventually
burst any false containers of self that cannot encompass the expanding
In meditation, expand to include all that you are. Then bring that feeling
of expansion back into your physical self. In this process, you create
a complex stability, opening a chalice of self that is fully rooted
in human form. With this expansion, you are freed to explore within
a new center that, paradoxically, seems to have to center. Yellow Human
reveals the secret of being essence within form, everywhere and nowhere,
"nothing" but present in all things.
The metaphor of the ever-expanding chalice is a powerful spiritual tool.
This chalice represents the eternal container of light, ever filled
with spirit's fire and nourishment. It is the metaphor that represents
the form in which your full potential can manifest. Each stage in your
journey feels like the final one, but each stage then opens to an expanded
form, releasing you into the next stage of consciousness.
All the gifts of the macrocosm pour out of the universal cornucopia.
With an open heart, empty yourself to be filled with the fruits of your
true desire. Through the temple of your body, lift the chalice of your
expanded self and declare that it is filled with truth and clarity.
Feel the ecstatic union with your full potential as a human being.
Meditate on the cornucopia with you at its center. Lift the chalice
of your self-generated energy vortex to greet the vortex that will descend
from above. As an open vessel, prepare a place to receive Yellow Human's
gifts. When you flow in unconditional love, all the fruits of the universe
rush toward you for benediction.
Bathe in love's essence as a child splashing in a pool on a hot day.
Connect with others in joyous union. Use the broom of Yellow Human to
sweep your day clear of past experiences and the issues and obstacles
of small mind. In the spirit of Yellow Human function on all frequencies
and power bands. Your cup is filled with the nectar of sacramental union.
Be fulfilled by the great harvest of love!
Blue Storm 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.
In the shadow of Cauac are held issues of spiritual separation. Cauac
bridges the time and space between physical and nonphysical realities.
This space can be viewed as a wall or veil between you and the Creator.
The intensity of your desire to go 'home' is often met with equal force
from the collective belief in separation. At times, you may even experience
a sense of despair and helplessness over the apparent gap between you
Take courage - you will move through the wall! During
this process, you may encounter intense feelings related to the original
trauma of separation from Source. But equally intense feelings will
take you through the wall to sacred reunion on the other side. On this
journey, you will meet and deal with the charge of that part of
your power that has not been freed into love. And in your yearning
for your spiritual home, you will be assisted by ascended beings and
masters whose purpose is to aid in your return.
A prominent shadow of Cauac is the fear of loss, the fear that by jumping
into the unknown, you will lose everything: companions, loved ones,
attachments, possessions - perhaps even your body or mind. Cauac is
the crucible of revolution. This transformation is so inclusive that
you may be reluctant to take risks for fear of the depth of change.
You may even have feelings of despair or giving up. Though it can appear
frightening, this process is actually there to serve you - to magnify
your feelings until you address them, using them as fuel to propel you
thorugh the transformational barrier itself.
Another shadow of Cauac falls on those who seek to escape or transcend
earthly reality through addictions of all kinds - to substances, fears,
self-doubts, material comforts, relationships, sexual obsessions, and
work, among others. Addictions are like incomplete rites of passage,
where compulsive behaviour creates a feeling of being trapped rather
than being free. They may offer the appearance of freedom,
but only spiritual connection can offer true freedom. On the other hand,
the desire from a new or altered state can become an indirect spiritual
path leading to transcendence. Thus the escape is incomplete, yet it
eventually brings one to the opportunity of a profound transformation.
Any illusions you may have about self are magnified intensely through
the lens of Cauac.
When you experience separation from Spirit's love, questions of Essence
Self and issues of archetypal self-worth arise. This separation springs
from a basic denial of your oneness with Spirit. Denial can be seen
as consciously or unconsciously holding something away from yourself,
and it creates an energy loss and a feeling of disconnection from your
However, that which feels like it has been lost returns when you forgive
yourself. Accept your human process, freeing the power and potential
that has been locked in your fear-based emotions. Accept your behaviours
as part of your learning experience. Let go of the rigid belief systems
and judgements that hold denial in place.
Acceptance is the allowance that creates freedom, and separation is
the guide to union. You may tend to deny your feelings and your growth
process, thinking that you are above them or have already worked through
them. This denial amplifies and intensifies the feelings until they
come into awareness. Know that the intensity of your process is also
healing your cellular and genetic memory, as well as the collective
issues of humanity and the planet. Simply accept the truth of your experience,
no matter how intense or difficult it may seem. Embrace everything
that happens to you and you will regain all the vital energy that
can be applied to the purposes of evolution.
White Dog is your Compliment - something that comes naturally
One of the gifts of White Dog is the calling in and recognition
of other companions of destiny. Other beings with the same longing are
waiting to meet and acknowledge you - beings who can see you as you
authrentically are. When you have truly been seen, you feel empowered,
and remembrance of a shared sacred trust is ignited. This is a natural
process, divinely designed for recognition through vibrational affinity,
freed from personal expectations.
White Dog can be seen as an access point for developing relationships
with guides, totems, allies and guardians. There are many ways to work
with these spiritual guides, including guided visualizations, shamanic
journeys, and meditation. A useful construct is viewing them as aspects
of yourself, part of your life stream that is asking to be integrated.
Remember, there is no 'other'. In this grand adventure, you are being
asked to embody all that you are.
Profound insights are garnered through shared purpose and relationship
with others who are willing to be in their truth and integrity about
the light and shadow aspects they perceive in themselves.
Similarly, intimate relationships can be viewed as unique opportunities
to bring forward in each other deep emotional patterns to be transformed.
In this case, those you have drawn to you hold the ability to assist
you in your own integration as well. There are no mistakes. Be willing
to look deeply into the truth held within any relationship. The expression
of intimacy is a gift of love; the lack of it may be a symptom asking
for honest communication and healing. It may also be guiding you to
reevaluate your relationship and the purpose it is serving.
White Dog signals a breakthrough in your life: new beginnings,
new perceptions, new allies and friends. As you express more authentically
who you are, you draw your true family closer to you.With your guides
and companions, you have the ability to manifest your inspired visions
and dreams. Recognize the eyes and hearts that spark the remembrance
of a sacred trust.
The harmonic wisdom of White Dog is affinity,
the attraction of like vibration or substances for one another. Spiritual
affinity is not limited to family kinship - it is part of the natural
affinity between companions of destiny. Such companions of are drawn
together by the same aligned force that draws iron filings to a magnet.
Companions of destiny are drawn togther to do work that is naturally
On the surface at times, it may seem that
you have little in common with these companions, yet the attraction
remains. This is because Essence Selves are often committed to work
together long before they meet in the physical world. This is a natural
process of affinity, rather than a process motivated from personal desire.
Follow this guidance into your unfoldment within the larger pattern.
