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
And so with this, we have the
naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe on August 8, 2015:
BIG LOVE - COURAGE -
STRENGTH - CONFIDENCE - FIRE IN THE HEART - ADVOCACY - ALTRUISM -
GLOBAL EXPANSION SHAMANIC DREAMING - COSMIC MEMORY - GHOST DANCE - LOVE
WISDOM - DESTINED ALLIANCE - SOUL PRIDE - GLORY & HONOR FOR US ALL -
TENDERNESS - COMPASSION - EMPOWERMENT - SEKHEIM FIRE REIKI
It takes great strength to reveal such tenderness. That is the keynote
of LionHeart! The power of LionHeart is centered squarely in the
allegory of the Lion laying with the lamb. The archetype of the Lion
lying with the Lamb is not about the food chain of these animals... it
is about the "food chain" within us... it is about the most fierce,
decisive, projective parts of our personality becoming the protector and
champion of our delicate, tender, receptive soul.
This journey may be about finding
those different sides of yourself, so that you can become whole in
consciousness. Some may need to find their voice, and some may need to
be quiet so a greater voice can emerge. Which ever way you are coming at
this, purification and synthesis of intention is the key.
This is not just a blend of Light
and Love, but a synergy of the LionHeart coming forth within humanity.
It is the Way of the Peaceful Warrior. After all... what else would we
be fighting for... if not love. Let us remove every barrier to love.
"Never think in
terms of being free from; always think in terms of being free for." -
In the West on the medicine wheel
we gain the courage, strength and confidence to enter the unknown
element of soul. This place within us is the part of us where the field
of pure potential resides. As we sit in this aspect of ourselves on the
wheel, it is like a visionquest for every cell of our body. It is a
brave call for something beyond our meager imagining to come forth, so
that we can continue to change and grow as a human being, and to be in a
new, old way.
"Buddha has actually called it the lion's roar.
When a man reaches an absolutely silent state he roars like a lion. For
the first time he knows what freedom is because now there is no fear of
anybody's opinion. What people say does not matter. Whether they call
you a saint or a sinner is immaterial; your whole and sole judge is God.
And by 'God' a person is not meant at all, God simply means the whole
universe." - Osho
Courage, strength and confidence are the stepping stones to our future
selves. It is important to understand this process of growth and to
realize the heirarchy of our spiritual evolution. For courage builds
strength, and strength builds confidence. Often we forget that
confidence must be built, even earned. Just as we might lift weights to
build muscular strength, so too, must we exercise our options to build
confidence. In other words, the more we courageously venture into the
unknown, the stronger we become, the better prepared we are to take
risks, the more confident we become.
Notice that confidence and comfort are not the same thing. In many ways
our confidence level is directly related to our perception of our
ability to handle the unknown. So if miracles of manifestation lie
outside of what is known to us, then how could we consider making this a
routine part of our lives, and not just some leap of faith that we take
every now and again as we muster the courage, or more likely life and
our soul stalk us to move into the void?
It is important to learn about ourselves... what we are really made of,
to help us continously access the depths of our being, and to access
great assistance in the realm of pure possibility is the medicine wheel.
When you journey on the wheel, you first build faith in the presence of
unseen forces of light through the courageous act of humility. One could
say that the very first leap of faith of the fool to venture into the
unknown is where courage begins on the wheel. As one becomes a seasoned
traveler however, the awareness of the magician within, and a whole cast
of characters, magical beings and divine helpers come to the fore, and
we are strengthened for the journey by our deep awareness that we are
not alone, in many senses of the word.
"The ground of fearlessness is fear. In order
to become fearless you have to stand in the middle of your fear." - Osho
Much like the story of the Wizard of Oz, the hero's journey reveals the
deep magic that lies within, and this begins to outpicture in our lives.
People, places, situations and scenarios will play out to call into
awareness what is within. Then something amazing happens, we start to be
able to navigate in the dark, through the signs and symbology of the
events of our life. And we are no longer the victim of circumstance,
karma or fate. As soon as we get our shaman's eyes, and develop the
ability to track our lives, to see the experiences of our lives through
higher dimensions, it is as if an invisible light comes on and we can
access greater information. It is in that moment that we truly realize
that we are creating all of it.
Courage, strength and confidence come from within. But the process and
experience of life is designed to give us what we need to pull what is
within "out" into the world. The reason for this is that above all we
are destined to create. Being fruitful and multiplying is not just about
procreation of other human beings... it is an all encompassing command
to be abundant, to improve your lot, to advance and grow... and
ultimately to evolve right through the door of the unknown, the great
mystery of our own soul... to become fully human.
If we can imagine something into existence one time, it can be done a
hundred thousand times. The truth is, that we have already imagined a
great many things into existence. The imaginal realm is very real. In
meditation and journeywork sometimes people ask, how do I know that I am
not imagining it? The answer is that you are! Yet there is a great
question that must be asked. Why, out of all the things you could have
imagined did you choose that? And "who" was it that chose that?
Exploring these questions almost always bears fruit. These are most
often treasures pulled up from the deep, clues about your unique
individuality and purpose.
"The crowd is not the problem -- you are the
problem. The crowd is not pulling you -- you are being pulled, not by
somebody else but by your own unconscious conditioning. Always remember
not to throw the responsibility somewhere on somebody else, because then
you will never be free of it. Deep down it is your responsibility. Why
should one be so much against the crowd? Poor crowd! Why should you be
so much against it? Why do you carry such a wound?" - Osho
Sometimes we discover that the soul is tossing us clues through our
dreams, imaginings and visions about what is hidden inside of us. It is
even possible to tap into the visions and dreams of each other. It is
also possible for each of us to have a similar dream, a memory, or a
calling that is so strong, that even if we don't realize it, we
magnetize ourselves to each other through this common dream. It is then
that we truly begin to understand the reality of the realities within
the unconscious, and the great hidden powers that are available to us,
upon this discovery.
This realization is the ultimate courage bringer. For in this we begin
to see our purpose and remember who we really are. And we begin to
recognize each other, and much like in the Wizard of Oz, there is a
homecoming, and a newfound ability to reunify with lost aspect of
ourself, and a discovery of strength we didn't know we had. This in turn
gives us the confidence to continue to build our dreams, to seek out a
vision, to allow our soul group both within and without to come forth
and move together as one. This oneness, this reunification is our heart
of hearts. It is here, in this space that we can live inside the gap,
the tao of our heart, regularly and routinely living in the fifth
dimensional holy, whole sacred space of a life lived loving like God/dess
A great gift will be available to
those who travel this journey, and then through them and the stillpoint
of calm knowing, not unlike the guardian Sphinx, to others. It is the
gift of Sekhmet, the Lionheaded Goddess Deity of the Egyptian neteru.
She is a Solar deity, sometimes called the daughter of the sun god Ra
and often associated with the goddesses Hathor and Bast. She bears the
Solar disk and the uraeus which associates her with Wadjet and royalty.
She is known for her strength and protection of the Pharoahs.
This makes Sekhment a powerful guardian for emergent Kings and Queens
who are reclaiming their crown, their free will and the light of their
own soul. For the last 2 years Sekhmet has been bringing forth the fiery
initiations of the Sekheim Reiki to be handed down in the lineage of the
Blue Star Monastary and School of Usui Reiki. This is optional to
receive this piece, but this journey will prepare you energy field for
this great expansion, as well as pave the way for others to come.
"The gift of
fire element is a strong sense of self-esteem that builds a courageous
character that will be totally authentic. Fire elements helps me to
remember the alchemy of my own personal transformation, finding the
courage to walk my truth and the courage to seek greater understanding
and awareness. I can in turn inspire others to connect to spirit within,
to find the same passion to live authentically and honestly in every
way." - Nate Metz, The Green Shaman, Addiction Alchemy Facilitator
It time to look deeper at the Hidden Machine of the Universe.. and
discover your role in creation. It's time to dream a new dream of love,
to recall your future self and bring that one into greater physical
form. It's time to stand in the fire, swim to the shore, walk on the
land and be who you were born to be.
Often the teachings of the Law of Attraction, the Buddha, Hermetics and
others have admonished us, "As above, so below", "You become what you
think about". But by now we've all discovered some holes in this theory.
That is because there is more to us than our thoughts... and all
thoughts are not created equal.
Some hold much more weight than
others, some are like a river that runs through it... some are so buried
in our belief systems that we have no idea what's really in there. But
there is a way to influence our thoughts and belief systems, even if we
don't know what seems to be holding us back. It's your ENERGY! Your
What is in your field, your
environment... or not.... can truly help and aid you in your
transformational process.. ot block and delay you. This is up for
discovery. You can learn how to change your energy, and through the
discipline of some very powerful spiritual practices... set yourself
free...and gather the strength to be more responsible for creating your
life in a way that is beautiful, loving, compassionate, caring... and
spoke with me about courage, and it’s differences from bravery. Again
the feeling of control and mastery similar to a martial artist were
strong. Courage is choosing rigorous honesty, living in example of
personal value system. It is not about fighting battles, aggression or
over-powering. Courage is daily and often unrecognized, taken for
granted at best." - Nate Metz, The Green Shaman, Addiction Alchemy
As we talk about belief systems, thoughts, feelings and creation, there
is something that we really don't speak of, nor understand very well;
memory. The storage of belief systems is system wide. We become those
stories, for they are not only in our minds, they are in our cells. That
is why it is so crucial to purge active thought patterns out of our
short term memory, up and out... so that there is room for some of the
deeply held belief systems that are both ready to go and ready to
deliver their payload to come to the forefront.
Our memory is circular, not just
linear, as our little thinking mind tells us. There is alot more "in
there" than we can imagine. Let us use the power of LionHeart to not
only reveal the things we do not want to face, but also to recognize
hidden and evolving gifts of the new earth human, as we reach ever
greater levels of our human/spiritual development. Let my courage,
strength and confidence come alive in your life.
The power of LionHeart helps us
"fight" for love. It allows us to speak up and speak out, with love and
with the intention to heal and create something better, higher and finer
of our soul's expression. This is about allowing the Light of the Soul
and the illumined mind to become in service to our heart.
What is near and dear to your own
heart? What cause are you passionate about? What calling are you
hearing? These are all important clues to the Lion's roar within you.
The LionHeart is not domineering
or overbearing. Though others who do not like to meet your boundaries
might term your actions as such. Don't buy it! If you have checked in
with your heart and you know that you have the best interest of the
greater good as the center of your intention, then hold true. To thine
own self be true!
greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others. And the moment
you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep, you become a
lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom." - OSHO
The heart of the Lion is the Lamb.
The Lamb of God, where God is the joining of Mother and Father Divine,
is what the lion is protecting. Our courage, strength and confidence is
inspired by what we truly love. LionHeart stokes in us a call for
devotion. This devotion makes us committed to a cause if it is the right
one for us, if it is tied to our destiny. You will know that you are on
the right track, because anything else will seem pointless for you.
actually called it the lion's roar. When a man reaches an absolutely
silent state he roars like a lion. For the first time he knows what
freedom is because now there is no fear of anybody's opinion. What
people say does not matter. Whether they call you a saint or a sinner is
immaterial; your whole and sole judge is God. And by 'God' a person is
not meant at all, God simply means the whole universe.
It is not a question of having to face a person; you have to face the
trees, the rivers, the mountains, the stars -- the whole universe. And
this is our universe, we are part of it. There is no need to be afraid
of it, there is no need to hide anything from it. In fact, even if you
try you cannot hide. The whole knows it already, the whole knows more
about you than you know." - OSHO
