The naming of a clan is a very sacred process. It is not dictated by the creativity alone of the facilitator, but is rather more of a download of information that best represents the existing energy of the group as a whole. Through intuition, meditation, inspiration, imagination, observation and deep listening the clan is named, not by a human, but through a human by the unseen energy source that connects us all one to another.

We are but reflections of one another, until we are reflecting only what is inside of our heart of hearts from our purest essence. And we will then each be one to another the most persistent of reminders of the greatness that lies within each of us. For it is then that we are projecting the most essential part of our highest and finest selves from the very core of our being. And so it is wise to pay attention to everything and everyone that comes into your space. Let no blessing go unnoticed and no message go unheard. Be not fooled by the wrapping paper on the gift or the cover on the book.

And so with this, we have the naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe on October 6, 2013:

The Dreaming Bear Clan


"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." -Joseph Campbell

Dreaming Bear is the culmination of 33 medicine wheel journey's. I was told by my spiritual Grandfather Nicholas Black Elk and my other guides, that on my 33rd wheel something very special would happen. This was about 3 years ago or so. I had no idea what it might be, but I knew it would be something to behold, as each successive journey on the wheel just continues to produce miracle after miracle of the manifestation of our higher selves and our highest good. I believe this journey is going to be the catalyst for something holy. For while our lives are made of our own dreams, it is true that we are also "dreaming" each other. And I have heard the call.

“I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul.”  ― Charles Dickens

No one could be more humbled to what this wheel can create than I. It has given me everything I have asked for, and allowed me to journey through extreme karmic load and trauma into an ever expanding Victory walk. Is my life perfect by 3D standards... maybe not... but on the inner places my walk on the Beauty Way for the last 9 years has brought me to the altar of my soul. And not only has it brought me to my own, it has connected me with my soul group.

“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” ― John Lennon

Connecting to your soul group IS the main point of this journey. Without your soul group, life is black and white. With your soul group, no matter what, life is filled with the colors of creation, new levels of being unfolding and blossoming to reveal a shared visionary experience that begins to outpicture goodness and mercy for all whom you travel with. This is perhaps the greatest initial gift of the medicine wheel; The reunification of God/dess in the flesh. For in this we come to the realization that as we have been on a path of individuation, overcoming the cosmic slapback of an omnipotent being incarnating and experiencing millions of other omnipotent beings, we have finally learned how to love like the Creator loves.

"All human beings are also dream beings. Dreaming ties all mankind together.” ― Jack Kerouac

Many have felt that our wings have been clipped and that we are bound to our limitedness. However, without these restraints we would have annihilated each other with the super powers that lie buried, and dormant within us. All in due time our training wheels in the world of manifestation will come off.. and we will claim our full rights as a creator god in the making, and realize that there is nothing that cannot be changed. Unless our higher self and our soul are stalking us. In which case, we humbly submit to the process of our life, until we alchemize ourselves, and forge our souls to be in integrity with divine, universal law.

“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Dreaming Bear, represents the sleeping Goddess within us all. Now we must dream Her awake. She is the one filled with Goodwill and Mercy, and never more important in our spiritual evolution than now, is her awakening. For along the path of liberation, most of us have committed many "sins", made aggregious errors, failed, caused harm and just plain old "did wrong". At this juncture when one comes fuller and deeper in the God realization of oneself, there is a point in the timeline of this discovery that we can barely tolerate all that we have endured. We run the risk here at this stop of becoming so overwhelmed with our own judgment of ourselves and others that we may find ourselves lost and stuck in our unworthiness. Dreaming Bear is here to urge you to keep dreaming yourself awake at this time.

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”  ― Edgar Allan Poe

As you follow Dreaming Bear, you will go deeper into the Cave of Brahman, the pineal gland activation that will allow you to see the WHOLE picture. Don't stop looking until you see with the eyes of love. As you keep looking you understand that this has been your earth school... the temperance of a god in the making... a limitless being of light... that submitted to this process... so that we could be the cause of joy to each other and to ourselves. Imagine the cosmic loneliness of one who is omniscient and all seeing, all knowing... the alpha and the omega... the everything and nothing. That kind of loneliness causes us to try to walk like a one man army. But we did not come here for that. We came to be reunited as faces of God/dess.

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” ― Henry David Thoreau

God is ONE for ALL. Goddess is ALL for ONE. As we stand around feeling both motherless and fatherless, one magical day we look around and pull from our own inner sanctum, the knowledge that those beings reside within us. And we are the ones who are to bring them here. I am bringing them here right here and right now... right on this page that you are reading. You have the ability to bring them here, too!

“In dreams begin responsibilities.”  ― W.B. Yeats

This journey with Dreaming Bear is about helping you to continue to dream yourself awake, by showing you how to access the "dreamtime". Dreamtime is not the same as your nightly dreaming, though it can be a part of it. The Dreamtime is a very sacred space within you.... a multi-dimensional place that contains all possibility. Dreaming Bear can guide you to the holy of the holies, the inner sanctum of your own soul and put you in conscious contact with your higher self, and the Great Mystery. Where that leads you is a deeply personal journey and is the miracle of your existence. For no one else can tell you who you are. For that is revealed to you, in the telling itself and the unfolding of your own life.

“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart… Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.”  –Carl Jung

I am the Great Bear Mother of the Star Nation come here to guide you home. Come into the cave of your own being. Whether it is your time to hibernate and become the Hermit, reeling all your energies back in for a while... or time to come out and play as you birth your gifts out in the World....Either way, I can lead you to your soul, and help you stay centered in your Self. It is time for the love of the Great Mother to guide, comfort and keep you. It is time to turn a merciful eye upon yourself, and to go to a place of deep understanding, compassion and forgiveness of yourself and others.

“To dream is to starve doubt, feed hope.” ― Justina Chen

I can help you to see through the eyes of love, to tap into your heart of hearts and to allow true, unselfish love to overlight your existence. Dreaming Bear wants you to know that you are much more than flesh and bones, though that flesh and bone is not a mere coat or slipper, but the part of you that is made manifest in the flesh. You are literally Spirit in the Flesh. By the culmination of this journey, you will know-know this in the way of complete gnosis, with all the humility, benevolence and majesty that this affords. There is knowing with the mind, and then there is knowing at the soul, and then there is remembering. Dreaming Bear will take you to the place of remembering who you really are.

“I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I'm not going to worry about them. I'm dreaming the hardest.” ― Marilyn Monroe

The earth and the universe is supporting your upgrades into the aspects of new earth humanity that are now available to everyone. As with all things, delays may be a gift. Shortcuts and acceleration of this process are not the intention. Staying focused and making the process as comfortable and joyful as possible, however, is. Staying in the present moment awareness, while recalling your future self into being, tapping into the imaginal cells of higher self are the call at this time. You are creating sacred space and holy ground wherever you walk.

She had just realized there were two things that prevent us from achieving our dreams: believing them to be impossible or seeing those dreams made possible by some sudden turn of the wheel of fortune, when you least expected it. For at that moment, all our fears suddenly surface: the fear of setting off along a road heading who knows where, the fear of a life full of new challenges, the fear of losing forever everything that is familiar.”  ― Paulo Coelho

What is your great work in the world? First matter is the birth of your soul.... then from that one...we ask... What are you Dreaming? Like any birthing process, there is effort required. Dreaming Bear will help to make this a labor of love!

“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”  ― Dr. Seuss
