CLAN - Eastern Gate - June 15th, 2008
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:
POWER "Just like a white winged dove
Sings a song
Sounds like she's singing...
And the days go by
Like a strand in the wind
In the web that is my own
I begin again" (Stevie Nicks, Edge of Seventeen)
"Our soul is escaped as a bird
from the snare of the hunters, the snare is broken and we are
delivered." - The Bible
The power of White Dove is in her
absolute purity of heart. This creature is here to bring in peace and a
recapturing and drawing down of the innocence of the angelic self and
our omnipotent beauty. She
portends Angelic Play. Like the innocent asking of one child to another,
"Do you want to play?"... with no hidden agenda, no thoughts of anything
but to connect with another, soul to soul in the moment.
White Dove brings us on her snowy
wings into the dimension of eternity and timelessness on the physical
plane. In her we find the beauty of each moment and we bask in its
glory. With her higher view of the etheric world, she brings us the calm
assurance that all is well in paradise, even when things in the physical
get a little chaotic. She encircles us in her wings like an eidolon and
carries us to our destiny of human potential and magical beauty.
White Dove is the embodiment of
the divine feminine within us all and she gives life to that for us as
she sings us her song. The Dove's coo is a cosmic purr of satisfaction,
a love note, a song of serene purity of our own TRUE BEAUTY. On her
wings we alight into the free range of inner space.

Dig if u will the picture
Of u and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can u my darling
Can u picture this?
Dream if u can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and u
How can u just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I'm just 2 demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father 2 bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied (She's never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry
Touch if u will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase u
Even doves have pride
(When Dove's Cry Prince, Purple
White Dove is a messenger of hope,
peace and unconditional love not only of others, but self. She will help you to resolve conflict, to
be more serene and tranquil and to surrender and release the part of you
that wants to control others and your own circumstances. She will do
this by empowering you with an amazing grace. As you experience this
grace you will no longer feel the need to squeeze the mystery out of
your life by planning and manhandling all of your affairs. You will not
only become comfortable with letting go, you will actually trust and
look forward to the magic as it unfolds. Each day you will awaken and
say, "I wonder what the Universe has in store for me today?".
That is not to say that you just
sit back and do nothing. Yet, there is not fear of this either. Because
of the stillness, the silence in your mind and the serenity you can now
hear the clarion call of the Indwelling Spirit as your Angelic Self can
now inform your life from an omnipresent and eternal perspective to take
guided action. All at once everything matters....and nothing matters.
White Dove ushers you into the
Gap. She brings you to the part of you that observes what "you" do in
stillness, without judgment or condemnation. This carries you into the
realm of power versus force and opens you to sweeping, quantum changes in your way of being in
If I have come to you, you are ready to receive the Light even more
fully into your life. You have been purifying your body, mind and soul
and your heart is ready to open to unspeakable love. You are ready to
surrender and let go. It's time to fall...to fall in love for real...with
you...with your body, mind and soul. It's time to make room in the
clutter of your mind and the brokenness of your heart for your Angelic
Higher Self to fully enter its host. This is a love that you may have
never known before in your life. This is the compassionate, tender,
caring, nurturing love which transcends all known tags and labels. This
is an unfiltered, unpolluted
seeing of self and others and a total honoring of what is seen.
Do you look at your self in
disgust? Do you wish you could stop smoking, overeating, under-eating,
exercising compulsively, not moving your body enough, obsessing about
your body parts, quiet your mind chatter and still your soul? Are these
things causing you to disconnect from the deepest of love with self and
If this is so, White Dove is here
to bring you freedom. Climb onto my breast and I'll take you to your
beauty. In order to do this you must enter my world. Here there
are no expectations, there is no yours and mine...not really. This does
not mean that you will not speak your truth. But it will be from a place
of discernment and not condemnation. You will hold strong to this, as
others struggle to respect your boundaries, for it is your deep love
that holds the vision high. This love doesn't want to be liked or made
popular. This love is a living, breathing force in its own right,
unstoppable, universal and unconditional.
Come with me, says White Dove, and
accept your holiness. You are Goddess and God in the flesh. The kingdom
awaits you of ecstasy and bliss in divine union. Your angelic self is
being made ready to enjoin with body, mind and soul...Spirit in the
I am purified by the Light.

As a Christian symbol it is of
very frequent occurrence in ancient ecclesiastical art.
As a symbol of the Holy Spirit it appears especially in representations
of the baptism of Our Lord (Matthew 3:16) and of Pentecost. St. Gregory
the Great (590-604) is generally shown with a dove on his shoulder,
symbolizing inspiration or rather Divine guidance. A dove of gold was
hung up in the baptistery at Reams after the baptism of Clovis; in
general the symbol occurs frequently in connection with early
representations of baptism. In ancient times a dove-like vessel was
frequently suspended over the baptismal font and in that case.
As a symbol of martyrdom it
indicated the action of the Holy Spirit in bestowal of the fortitude
necessary for the endurance of suffering.
As a symbol of the Church, the
agent through which the Holy Spirit works on earth. When two doves
appear the symbolism may represent, according to Macarius (Hagioglypta,
222), the Church of the circumcision and that of the Gentiles.
On a sarcophagus or on other funeral monuments the dove signifies: the
peace of the departed soul, especially if, as is often the case in
ancient examples, it bears an olive branch in its beak; the hope of the
In each case the symbolism is
derived from the story of Noah and the Flood. Such is the meaning of the
dove (columbula, palumba sine felle) in numerous epitaphs of the Roman
catacombs. Occasionally funeral lamps were made in the shape of a dove.
Two doves on a funeral monument sometimes signify the conjugal love and
affection of the parties buried there. The dove in flight is the symbol
of the Ascension of Christ or of the entry into glory of the martyrs and
saints (cf. Ps. cxxiii, 7: "Our soul is escaped as a bird from the snare
of the hunters, the snare is broken and we are delivered." In like
manner the caged dove signifies the human soul yet imprisoned in the
flesh and held captive during the period of mortal life. In general, the
dove as a Christian emblem signifies the Holy Spirit either personally
or in His works. It signifies also the Christian soul, not the human
soul as such, but as indwelt by the Holy Spirit; especially, therefore,
as freed from the toils of the flesh and entered into rest and glory.
