Spiritual Tools of Tangible Experience (South)

Model Ankh ca. 1802 B.C. (Reproduction 1981)

The Giving and the Receiving Hand

The Human body is a magnet by virtue of the Iron in our blood, and that spark of Life Energy. Our left hand is the attraction pole and the right hand is the pushing pole. The Ankh was an instrument that held the pattern of flow and was used to magnify human forces for receiving and sending the energy of Intention.

There’s endless amazing information on this topic. But if you think of the energy of electrical signals, a little push could make a big difference in the force of thought. One theory I’m exploring came from some unknown resource that noted that it was used in the left hand (receiving) to draw the Truth for discernment. The ankh was held in the right hand to apply the discernment of an intention to movement. Out of curiosity I noticed something in the Egyptian hieroglyphs with people holding ankhs. There are two positions in the glyphs. People are either standing with their feet together, or with one foot forward. They were holding the ankh in the receiving hand when their feet were together, and in the right when there was one foot forward. I still have to research for the examples, and it needs to be resourced from the stone glyphs.  If I were painting a glyph, I wouldn’t have thought it mattered.



“Beautiful Painted Arrow” shared the wisdom that creating our life came down to Breath, Matter, and Movement. Breath is drawing upon the Light and Energy that’s present in the Element of Air… the Tool to accelerate Divine Inspiration and well-being to the whole body. Matter is having something tangible/solid through which to create an experience, and then “moving” these solid tangible things. You can create an experience with rocks as people, places and things, or paper dolls. The point he was making is moving physical matter as you experience what you would like to accomplish. You could have one big rock and a smaller rock for yourself – the bigger rock is a new car. And you could walk yourself up to your brand new car. That’s a tangible application for creation in the world below.

You don’t need an ankh to have something to hold. I have a stick of licorice root that fits perfectly in my hand, and I’d be conscious of it in my pocket. That’s what I’m going to carry to add momentum to a personal project. You can use anything to help you remember. If you want to be strong, carry something that feels strong. If you want crystal clarity of discernment, carry a crystal or a magnifying glass. Keep it a secret for yourself. The Elders called it “holding your power.” Someone is surely going to think you’re crazy. Don’t invite the thought. 🙂

Another very simple tool, is writing down the plan. (Like where you are going to place your keys.) Simple things matter. Put a daily checklist on the wall. Using one easy application to start, inspires more ways to guide yourself as you go along.

ASK for some divine inspiration to carry on. Call on the Divine Ancestors. They are real and they KNOW the “hard road” of life. (If you could reach down after you’re gone to help a friend, wouldn’t you be glad if someone called for your wisdom?)

Hold a Bible in your left hand, or anything that is Sacred to You. We hold the Power to Create what is Sacred to us as a Living Symbol of our Faith in a Divine Power Above.

Really wash your hands of things that don’t serve.  Every time you take a step in the right direction, pat yourself on the back. Consider using your dominant hand. That’s the “right” hand. 🙂

love, in lak’ech, Debra


12 Seed/KAN (Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA)

Galactic Tone 12: Understanding. This number’s energy is a gift of great capability, of retrospection. It is this ability that allows Twelve to connect disassociated parts into a (new) functioning whole. The energy of Twelve is that which presents a new piece of understood information or accumulated experience to be applied.

Seed/KAN: Family, sexual activity and the magic of germination are the characteristics of this sun sign. Natural net workers, Seed people strive to free themselves and others from debt or oppressive patterns of the past. Abundance is gathered by Seeds as if with a cast net. Seed persons are public defenders who work toward uniting community by discovering hidden traps and secret influences of others. To generate true abundance, Seed must learn to appreciate all gifts and lessons received and conduct profound investigations into its self. In the absence of gratefulness and the courage to face oneself, Seed finds itself in less than less fertile environments.

Cherokee, Dragon/UKTE’NA: Dragon’s symbol is Draco winding between the Little Dipper and Big Dipper. Dragon is the Corn Spirit, symbol of dual personality of Corn Mother and Maiden. Fertility and pro-creation from generation to generation. The word dragon means ”eye, to look at, to see clearly”.  Spirit brings energy of Lawgiver, Justice, vigilance and protective, loyal unto death. Ley lines in China are “dragon lines”, energy is sometimes called “orgone energy”, pyramid power or magnetic force. Pyramids and kivas are collector portals for this energy, known as vortexes. Dragon energy beats a path everywhere, stirring things up with a big stick in tune with the beat of the drum, heartbeat of the Earth.

[Text in italics was the primary source of inspiration for my journal. These are the sources that started my journey and they are the reference for interpretation each day. By providing the original text, I hope to offer a way to see what inspired my thoughts and by including all the aspects – allow for something more to inspire you. Mayan descriptions are those written by Ian Lungold. Cherokee descriptions came from multiple sources.
