The intent of this first gateway is to discover your path with heart and explore your relationship to the Worlds of Grandmother Earth. This is the beginning of your inner journey to heal and reconnect with Creation.
The following teachings are included in the curriculum within this gateway:
The Elements – This is a basic and effective introduction to the laws of energy and alchemy that will initiate the process of balancing the 5 aspects of Self, (emotional, physical, mental, spiritual & sexual), through establishing a direct connection to the Elements of Creation and the Powers of the Four Directions.
The 20 Count is a numerical system that assists us in understanding the energetic vibrational qualities, or powers, of Creation. We can use this structure to discover how the ‘outer’ world’s energies relate to each other, and also, where & how they resonate within us.
As Above, So Below – As Within, So Without.
The Star Maidens Circle is the ‘Philosopher’s Stone’ of the SMSD teachings. It is a code wheel, or key, that unlocks the door into our psyche. It can show us our imbalances, wounding, conditioned reactions, fears, etc. and also our true needs, desires and unique gifts. With this knowledge, we discover how to heal the Self and may choose how we experience and meet life.
The Moon Cycles show us the natural cycles of learning and development that each human takes from birth to death. It is a map of the path we take around the Wheel of Life.
To be consciously aware of where we are on the map within our personal cycles allows us to see how a particular movement, shift or change will promote alignment with the greater cycles of Creation. We may then use this knowledge to optimize our growth and development as co-creators.
