Global Burner Days represent the time to burn away the residual energies of the past that no longer serve us. Burning away our worldly matters of the flesh, we are made the “hollow bone” to receive the Full Light from Above.
May we honor the Time and the Element of Fire that knows exactly where to go to the driest wood of our Heart and Soul.
The Elders say that it is good at the end of every day to release your worries to the West, leaving them in the hands of the Highest Ones. In the way you may choose to create the Fire for the Holy Spirit, we might burn away a written expression of what we are ready to let go. May we prepare to offer the ashes of our old dreams, and Give Thanks to the Setting Sun for the Seeds of a New Life that will be shared within.
The Sacred Fire Ceremony that was inspired by the Hopi/Tewa tradition and offered by Joseph Rael, “Beautiful Painted Arrow” includes a way to carry it out inside with wooden matches. The Divine Intention is always more important than the ways and means. Sacred Ceremony is an offering in Harmony and Equity that can be carried out as Above, so Below from the realm of Spirit. It only requires the equal Time, Gratitude, and Consciousness to manifest the real experience.
May we meet at the Fire to Honor ALL the experiences of life that raise the wisdom of the Truth, and to celebrate together the New Life that is destined to be.
love, in lak’ech, Debra
Sacred Fire Ceremony Traditions
4 Dog/OC (Cherokee, WOLF/KANA’TI)
Galactic Tone 4: Stability; the cube is most stable of all forms and establishes volume by definition of height, length, depth and breadth; 4 directions establish orientation. The energy of 4 sets the parameters, which establish the freedoms and barriers needed to create a game, work, or relationship.
Dog/OC: Courageous, loyal and warm-hearted, very alert and valiant, people born of Dog are respected for their sense of justice and their protection. People born of the sun sign Dog are very sensual and know how to enjoy life. Playfulness and a good understanding of the basic human nature lead to prosperity for Dog. Dogs are good team players who love to travel and have a keen sense of their position in society. Dogs are ambitious and will take opportunities when they offer themselves, including infidelities. Dog persons share the nature of coyotes, spies, wolves and lawyers
Cherokee, WOLF/KANA’TI: Wolf’s symbol is Sirius (Dog star) and Antares, one or the other always visable but never at the same time. Wolf is our brother, shares our very roots. All dogs are domesticated wolves, companionship and guidance. Connecting link between the worlds. One who inspires loyalty, diplomacy and sense of humor with unlimited potential. A teacher, healer, pathfinder and transformer. Sharp as obsidian, gentle as a lamb. Totem -Dog. Loyalty and faithfulness that survives beyond death. This was the first day of creation energy in this 4th world, sets the energy for love, loyalty and faithfulness on the 5200 year cycle. Heart chakra energy is involved so that we can move to the state of “unconditional love” with compassion. All sexual desire issues that are not in harmony will surface to be cleared.
