***The two legged with the Wolf as his/her Totem has an inner need to be of service for the "greater good." Although the individual with Wolf Totem enjoys the company of others, there exists as well, the need for time alone. This "lone wolf" time will be spent in quiet contemplation and reflection upon the experiences of life before translating these ~thoughts to form~ and rejoining the "Pack" once more***
In the following quote, Chief Seattle eloquently expresses the concept of Guardianship. "What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected.
You must teach the children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of your grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother.
Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know, the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth.“ ~Chief Seattle~
***Part of the Role for the two-legged beside whom Hawk flies is that of Guardian of the Earth Mother. These are individuals who will possess an astute awareness of the concept of the interconnectedness of all things, and will have an inner reverence for all life.
These are the souls that are involved in making the world a better place, whether locally or globally. They will be protectors of the Earth Mother and tread softly upon her, encouraging and educating ~Others~ to do the same.
Often, they are either found initiating or actively involved in environmental causes, where their keen perception and insight will serve their chosen ~cause~ well. Yet it is their day to day existence and fundamental philosophy/foundation of action and belief, that distinguishes these individuals as true champions of Mother Earth as they seek to live in harmony with the ~Ina Maka~ and all that She births, provides, nurtures and sustains.***
"Yes I love that song too - stirs the Irish blood in me I think lol"
"You know JC I love life so much but at night I can't wait to go to sleep and dream lol its crazy."
"It's nice having someone to talk too - instead of me - myself - I lol"
Personally I always believed my spirit guides were the eagle/hawk and possibly the snake - and if you feel as passionately about the environment as I do we are probably very similar lol
Through its connection to the air element, hawks are connected to intelligence, but also to Spirit, the knowing that goes far beyond intellect.
Yep.. very similar. Also ive had a dream about a gold snake recently (he was actually made of metal) and wrapped himself around me until his face was looking at mine. But he wasnt happy with me either... I dont think these animals like me very much. lol.
Well if you were talking to me I have had these dreams since the age of 3. I am almost thirty now and yes some have probably spawned from my research but I would have to say that a lot of my research has spawned from my dreams.
I would actually like to start off with a dream, that marked the beginning of all of these dreams that was a reoccurring dream I had from the ages of 3-5.
There was some commotion behind us. I look back to see some people, mid eastern descent with the turbans around their heads and all. With little bags they had brought on the plane. In the bags where cobras they had managed to get by security and onto the plane. After all they where snakes right, so they probably made it right through the metal detectors. Anyhow they start terrorizing the passengers on this plane and all kinds of panic ensues as they methodically release cobras in every area of the plane. It gets very chaotic at this point in the dream, but this is always the point where I would wake up. I have had this same dream over 5 times and it was almost identical every-time.
If you are anything like me - your dreams are so powerful you are compelled / driven to learn more ?
I had so many snake dreams as a child and I detested them but with greater understanding my feelings changed over the years - the snake is primordial - it is a combination of light and dark - yin and yang - it represents raw energy. What we need to look at is the intent of the one that yields this energy or power ?. Dreams of snakes have become synonymous with " Evil " but I think the snake more often than not pertains to a warning. So in your dream the snakes were warning you some event on a plane was going to create mass panic - because the snakes were terrifying ( many people ) would clearly indicate an event that would affect people on a collective level and 9/11 certainly did that. I also had a dream about 9/11 a few months before the event although there is no way in a million years I would ever of made the connection at the time. I dreamt I was in a huge skyscraper along with quite a few other people including my ex. A group of guys wearing balaclavas and holding machine guns stormed the room. They separated all the men and women including my ex ( all the guys were military personnel ) All the women were placed in a room on their own and the door was locked -I started scouring the room looking for a way to escape. I climbed up on a table in an attempt to push one of the ceiling tiles away when I saw something pass by the window - I remember thinking to myself " OMG Why is that plane flying so low "? I knew it was going to crash and woke up in shock.
Hornung explains in an essay on “Time and Eternity” that in the “Book of Gates”, one of the New Kingdom funerary texts used from the tomb of Horemheb (1319 to 1307 BCE) on, twelve gods are “carrying the lifetime in the west”, that is, in the realm of the dead.
This lifetime is shown in the form of a gigantic snake inscribed with the hieroglyphs for “lifetime”, and the inscription for that picture of the time snake calls it “metui”, or “double cord”. Hornung also describes a scene from the same “Book of Gates” in the tomb of Ramesses VI (1151 to 1143 BCE) in the Valley of the Kings.
“... in which time appears as a doubly twisted rope spun from the mouth of a deity. Stars above the twists in the rope mark the individual hours as measurable units of time. In this image both the beginning and the passage of time are expressed.”
In other tomb paintings, the time- snake swallows the stars to then bring them forth again, or it appears as the cosmic ourobouros serpent that forms a circle to either swallow or disgorge its own tail.
In a particularly telling example discussed by Hornung, the tail- in- mouth time- snake symbol surrounds a rabbit which was the hieroglyph for “being”.
Here it was placed on a standard pole like the emblems of the gods. The rabbit stood thus for the same “being” or “existence” that the Shen- Ring and the cartouche protected within their coils.
Because of the similarity between the rope ring and the time snake, the Shen- Ring can also be seen as a snapshot of Atum as the primeval serpent. Already in the Pyramid Texts, the creator god described himself as a coiled serpent who controls time:
“I am the outflow of the Primeval Flood, he who emerged from the waters.
I am the ‘Provider of Attributes’ serpent with its many coils,
I am the scribe of the Divine Book which says what has been and effects what is yet to be.”
In a hymn from the slightly later Coffin Texts, Atum appears again as a coiled serpent who “extended everywhere”, like the Shen- Ring, and began his work of creation by the word in its midst:
“I extended everywhere, in accordance with what was to come into existence, (...) I bent right around myself, I was encircled in my coils, one who made a place for himself in the midst of his coils. His utterance was what came forth from his own mouth.”
Another spell from the same Corpus has the creator god saying:
“I was he who came into existence as a circle, he who was the dweller in his egg.”
Although this tangible evidence may have been lost in the meantime, the view of creation as a cosmic egg from which everything unfolds expressed a deeply rooted biological and poetic truth which continues to resonate in modern images such as that of the Big Bang.
"my body grew to the point I became one with the Universe - still in a lucid state I was too scared to move in case I woke up so as uncomfortable as I was lol I remained perfectly still - in that moment of feeling at one with the whole universe I sensed there was nothing I did not already know the answers to every question lay within this matrix - maze of energy/electricity - all knowledge in that state was accessible but I was in so much awe I did not dare ask anything."
There is something more in the Mayan calendar than that and indeed in all ancient traditions that speak of the destruction of a former civilisation and speak of the possibility that this destructive episode could return and what all these traditions agree on is that humanity itself is in some way implicated in its own fate. The nature of life on earth may be more mysterious than we realise it is. And that the intentions and actions of human beings may resonate out into the cosmos and may come back to us in ways we do not like.
When the world was new, the ancient people and the ancient creatures did not live on the top of the earth. They lived under it. All was darkness, all was blackness, above the earth as well as below it.
There were four worlds: this one on top of the earth, and below it three cave worlds, one below the other. None of the cave worlds was large enough for all the people and the creatures.
The Two Brothers pierced the roofs of the caves and descended to the lowest world, where people lived. The Two Brothers sowed one plant after another, hoping that one of them would grow up to the opening through which they themselves had descended and yet would have the strength to bear the weight of men and creatures. These, the Two Brothers hoped, might climb up the plant into the second cave world. One of these plants was a cane. At last, after many trials, the cane became so tall that it grew through the opening in the roof, and it was so strong that men could climb to its top. It was jointed so that it was like a ladder, easily ascended.
After a long time the second cave became filled with men and beings, as the first had been. Complaining and wrangling were heard as in the beginning. Again the cane was placed under the roof vent, and once more men and beings entered the upper cave world. Again, those who were slow to climb out were shaken back or left behind. Though larger, the third cave was as dark as the first and second. The Two Brothers found fire. Torches were set ablaze, and by their light men built their huts and kivas, or travelled from place to place.
While people and the beings lived in this third cave world, times of evil came to them. Women became so crazed that they neglected all things for the dance. They even forgot their babies. Wives became mixed with wives, so that husbands did not know their own from others. At that time there was no day, only night, black night. Throughout this night, women danced in the kivas (men's "clubhouses"), ceasing only to sleep. So the fathers had to be the mothers of the little ones. When these little ones cried from hunger, the fathers carried them to the kivas, where the women were dancing. Hearing their cries, the mothers came and nursed them, and then went back to their dancing. Again the fathers took care of the children. These troubles caused people to long for the light and to seek again an escape from darkness. They climbed to the fourth world, which was this world. But it too was in darkness, for the earth was closed in by the sky, just as the cave worlds had been closed in by their roofs.
Anyways they are flying in formations that are very symbolic of DNA and I am actually aware of this during my dream. They where trying to tell me something but somehow the message got lost or misunderstood.
We are the truck now headed towards a T intersection where the street we are on meets with a large body of water, most likely the ocean. Of course the next thing I notice is the amount of traffic on the frontage road of people trying to evacuate because the tide was way above normal and these cars where all driving through 2-3 feet of standing water and traffic was backed up as far as our eyes could see. Of course when waves came crashing they would fully engulf the truck we where in, the windows were cracked because the weather was not bad and we were not expecting to get soaked. It was as if the earth was not in it's proper orientation and the ocean had moved 100 yards or so west and this was the very beginning of that storm but unfortunately the end of my dream.
Gold is the highest state of physical, mental, and spiritual perfection man can ever hope to reach - combine that with the snake symbol and this is a very powerful message. Are you aspiring to reach your full potential ?
Do not fight your true NATURE ( Be true to yourself ) then you connect with all the elements ( integration ) therein lies your true potential and power.
