Tomorrow I will be facilitating the fourth Medicine Horse healing circle as we celebrate the dream time through Lizard Medicine on the International day of the Lizard, along with the Jewish Holiday; Tish'a B'Av.
Lizard Medicine is associated with dream time. Through dreaming we can imagine different futures and decide which one we will choose to materialize.
I find an interesting correlation on this day with the Jewish Holiday; Tish'a B'Av, which commemorates the falling of the first temple of Jerusalem, along with the second Temple on the same calendar date 655 years later. Through my heritage I feel a tie to Judaism, as both my parents lived in Holland during the Holocaust, and recall hiding Jews in their homes from Hitler's Nazis. Though I was not born to witness this first hand, and stories shared by my family are minimal, I do believe in the energetic and cellular memory which can be genetically passed on, as my life is so shaped by the lives and experiences of my parents; their fears, their victories, their thoughts, their memories.
The falling of the temples of Jerusalem goes far back into history, so far that one might think how can it affect me now? Yet the chain of events creates a most powerful thread in time that has brought us to the very state of experiences we find ourselves in now. Native American teaching has taught me through the wisdom of the late Frank Many Horses, that as far as we can see back into our history, so far are we able to affect our future through the choices that we make now.
As beings on this planet, we live with a Karmic cycle that brings us strong lessons through religion and race; elements world wide which throughout history have brought us to a state of separation; killing and torturing each other through war, destroying sacred temples and artifacts of our fellow Man in an attempt to control the other's spirit and choices by devastating the physical means to practise one's faith in the way that they choose.
All my life I have worked through the dreamtime with personal struggles, first unconsciously and then consciously, experimenting with the malleable palate of lucid dreaming through which I have conquered demons, faced predators, and been made aware of the state of my subconscious towards certain people and events in waking time.
Through lucid dreaming I have experienced nuclear warfare and observed whole towns in lockdown, fighting for food tokens, caged in wire fencing and large tarp shelters. It is my hope that through dreamtime I can work to send out my own frequency signal into the collective consciousness which works to face these extreme fears as a prayer for the future of humanity.
It's so easy for us to get lost in the life of Western Culture; spinning our wheels to make ends meet against an economy that doesn't want to give us time to stop and experience the true meaning of life; freedom, abundance, the incredible nature of our Earth Mother, the generous and extremely intelligent heart and mind of our fellow human beings.
Through the wisdom of LIzard's dream, may we hold the visions and sculpt the energy of our actions and wishes, into a world that is peaceful and caring, safe and prosperous... may we send the fears, destruction and devastation of the past into the ethers to be transmuted back into it's original form of Absolute Truth, Unconditional Love, all that is Pure and Good.
