White Wizard is your Conscious Self - who you
are and who you are becoming.
White Wizard is the Magician, whose powers are activated
by wisdom that emanates from the heart. Such wisdom is not the intellectual
understanding known in Western culture; it is the wisdom that comes
from an alignment of mind and heart. An open, trusting heart is a refined
tool of perception. Allowing yourself to 'not know' opens the door of
the mind to a deeper understanding of the universe. White Wizard asks
you to fully utilize this aligned mind to participate in magic.
White Wizard invites you to step into self-empowerment. Empowerment
comes from self-acceptance, integrity, and commitment to your evolution.
Self-empowerment is not to be found outside oneself. Anything outside
that brings you empowerment also has a divine foundation within you.
If you feel a need for the approval of others, look to self-empowerment.
When you feel effectively engaged, doing what gives you joy, your energy
naturally expands to inlcude more of who you are, and magic flows synchronistically
into your life. Claim your alignment with the highest wisdom. Call forth
divine action in all that you do!
Align your own will with divine will and your Essence
Self. Be transparent, innocently allowing magic to come through you
rather than needing to create it. Open to heart-knowing and limitless
White Wizard is a tool of the light, a
conduit for the work of Spirit. A wise magician is spontaneous and transparent,
allowing magic to come in rather than trying to control it or make it
happen. A magician dances the dance of love through offering gifts of
freedom to others. This is real magic. Freed from the need to use power
to manipulate or control, a magician uses wisdom to manifest liberation
The harmonic wisdom of White Wizard is
melody, the progression of signle tones within a composition.
White Wizard symbolizes the sacred journey of your individual life.
As a harmonic magician, you are a novel yet universal container for
the expression of the Divine. While you play the melody of your journey's
spirit song, the Creator provides the harmony.
Melody is to music what story line is to
story. Utilize the elements you have chosen for exploration in your
life - your gifts, talents, abilities, motivations, circumstances, and
the other characters in your play. Orchestrate the most interesting
and growth-engendering story line from this combination of possibilities.
Understand that you are the player and the played in the melody in your
White World-Bridger is your Higher
Self & Guide.
In this life-time you are being asked to release and surrender.
Surrender is the opposite of giving up. It is freeing yourself from
the desire to be in control, letting go of how you think things should
be. Surrender is freedom. You are being invited to release yourself
from the bondage of preconceived action, to let everything be all right
as it is, so that you can live a more inspired life in the moment!
You are being asked to take action in the process of surrender and release.
You are requested to die a symbolic death, to surrender your limiting
beliefs. Symbolic death unveils the self by cutting away the outgrown
parts of yourself that no longer serve you. In such death, ego structures
fall away to reveal the garden of the true self. Look for new ways of
being, new people, new ideas, and new directions that will move into
the vacuum created through surrender and release. Like yeast, surrender
enlivens and empowers you to experience more of life's fullness.
Holding on to past patterns and grievances only limits the possibilities.
Forgive yourself. Forgive others. Let go. Surrender whatever limits
you. Face whatever you are resisting. In the experience of any loss,
it is never too late to complete. Through your willingness to walk in
the dark forest, insights and revelations will naturally emerge.
White World-Bridger teaches you to let go and be.
It represents the death of outgrown parts of the small self, which can
be used as fodder or fuel for the regeneration into a more expanded
self. The energy that is generated from the transfromation of these
parts creates a refinement of your spirit. Also, by burning off the
dross of the small self, a vacuum is created, drawing new people, ideas,
and directions into your life.
In the past, an old behaviour or belief system may have created a way
for you to temporarily fel better about yourself by supporting your
ego structure. As that ego structure is burned off, you create a pathway
for Spirit to fully satisfy the same needs. Through your willingness
to walk in the dark forest, the gifts of insight and revelation are
Accept the truth of your present situation. Through accepting what is,
you are free to go forward. Change and growth become easier and more
natural. Each experience in this enlivened state of surrender allows
for more joy.
The colour for White World-Bridger is forest green. You, like the symbol
of the evergreen tree, are alive and green amidst the process of apparent
death and trans formation of winter. Green creates a feeling of balance
and restful calm. It is restorative and healing, grounding, and centering.

Blue Hand is your Subconscious Self and Hidden Helper.
Blue Hand is a gateway, an opening, a portal from one
understanding to another. A clue to the meaning of Blue Hand is found
in the meditation, "I am, by thinly veiled design, the threshold
to other dimensions. In my ending is my beginning. The initatory gateway
awaits." Blue Hand is the seventh or last archetype in the cycle
of development of primary being. It represents the power found in completion.
Blue Hand is seen as a closure, which is really an opening to another
level of being.
Like the fluidity of moving water, Blue Hand is associated with the
process of dance, mudra, and beauty. This movement is a metaphor for
the ebb and flow of life. In meditation with Manik, experience the flowing
quality that is the beauty of the cosmic dance. Remember this essence
and this fluidity at times when your life feels most inflexible or lacking
Blue Hand represents the 'beauty way', the ability to see intrinsic
beauty within yourself and in all things. Living the beauty way requires
being in your full beauty and power. From this place, your self-authority
naturally flows. This is the position where your ego is aligned with
divine will. When you are standing in your full beauty and power, your
very presence invites others to be all that they are. To the Maya, Blue
Hand represents the deer, the gentle, serenely aware guide who walks
in fluid beauty and grace, opening and revealing.
The energy of Blue Hand will also help you to manifest spiritual skills
- especially those intuitive gifts such as oracular divination. In each
incarnation, you bring certain gifts. Each path - from priest and priestess
to shaman and dancer to artist and gardener - carries varied tools and
skills. You have chosen certain gifts and tools that offer you a way
to interact with others and your life process. This may be as simple
as calling on your innate wisdom and insight in order to see clearly
the gifts and tools that you carry.
Yellow Seed 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.
One of the shadows of Yellow Seed is acting as the unawakened
seed, the sleeper who wants to remain protected and invulnerable. In
this shadow you may think you are serving yourself through this illusion
of safety and security. Yet if you maintain distance from the world
of possibilities outside your shell, your new horizons are kept at a
distance. Take a risk, and reveal all that you are! Beyond the confines
of definitions and self-concepts and the security of everyday patterns,
the excitement of unknown possibilities beckons.
Examine how protective limitations affect your natural
growth. Such issues are reflected in phrases like, "My world works
just the way it is"; "I can't do that"; "I'm just
fine the way I am"; or "I feel too inadequate." The sae
wall that is intended to create safety and security also builds a barrier
that limits Spirit from creating new possibilities in your life.
One way to access the transformation offered in the shadow
of Yellow Seed is to realize that the seeds - your dreams, desires,
and destiny - lie waiting within you to be awakened. In accepting that
you are the fertile ground, you feel the authentic safety and security
within, and the outside world becomes ripe with new possibilities.
Red Serpent is your Compliment - something that comes
naturally to you.
"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
Tone is Tone 2 - Lunar
Loom of reality, sacred twins, cooperation, relationship,
polarity of male and female, duality.
Two is the ray of polarity: the sacred twins,
smoky mirror and the clear reflection, all things in relationship. Polarity
is the loom on which reality is strung, the magnetic dance of universal
forces. Within the mirror of polarity, you will find the many faces
of illusion, as well as ultimate freedom from illusion.
Polarity reveals your conflicts, struggles, and the apparent
separation created by your beliefs in duality. Examine your attractions
and aversions. Discover the loom of reality that is intricately woven
in relationship. Utilize the teachings that are held in the number two.
Polarized positions actually work in cooperative alliance. In cooperation,
all polarities serve as backgrounds for full appreciation of one another
and the whole.
Also examine the polarity of male and female within yourself.
Explore your divine feminine and masculine aspects. Look for the gifts
within your relationships. Invesitage the polarities within them, and
explore the natural lines of force and growth they create. Remember,
polarity is the pulse of Universal Source!
