The initiation spread helps us tune in to the lesson
we are now learning in life. There may be millions of applications for
each lesson taught and learned at many levels of understanding as we
learn and relearn the same lessons. It has been said that there are
seven levels to understanding any teaching. As we view each lesson
from the Seven Sacred Directions that surround our Sacred Space. East,
South, West, North, Above, Below, and Within- we can see every level
of our total being.
each lesson and act of life has its own initiation, so each of these
activities has a power animal Totem that will best help us in
learning a lesson. This Totem is our guide, our guardian, our
teacher, and our friend. Often the lessons are hard and we may be
blind to the things that are blocking our further progress.
In calling on a Creature- being for guidence, we are opening our
consciousness to the growth potential offered by each Totem. These
Creature-beings have naturally learned in what we seek to
comprehension. They can show us, through their procedures and
instinct, the pathways to effectively completing our chosen lesson.
The initiation spread helps us turn into the lesson we are now
learning in life. There maybe millions of applications for each
lesson learned and many levels of understanding as we learn and
relearn the same lesson. It has been said that there are seven
levels of understanding all teachings. As we view the Seven-Sacred
Directions that surround our Sacred Space (ie) East, South, West,
North, Above, Below, and Within-we can see every level of our total
being. If a mountain were viewed from each of these directions, each
face of the mountain peak would be different, but it would be the
same mountain peak. So it is with all initiations.
Different people will experience very different lessons
because the lesson will be relevant to their personal experience.
The Totems will teach the key to finding how the lesson applies to a
present life circumstances. You must use your gift of initiation to
see your personal circumstances. The use of initiation is the
initiation into each forthcoming lesson of awareness. It works best
if you hold a particular question or situation in your mine while
you ask the Totem-teachers and the Sacred Teachings to come forward.
This teaching reveals the improvement in attitude that may be
needed for you to conquer your next challenge in life. Each person
will have to look deeply, distinguish and owe the aspects of Self
they would like to keep or change. Remember that the heart is the
Within direction, and truth must live inside the heart or living
becomes a lie.
