Part of our homework/stepping into the path as shaman-healer, is to feed and grow these seeds/karypays with sacred fire ceremony. We are asked to offer seven individual fires for each archetype before coming to the next session of the West direction.
The great archetypes of the Andean tradition are organizing principles of the Universe. They are the forces that we call to create sacred space and they are the energy beings that have been planted as seeds in each of your chakras. It is important to remember that you have received them as seeds, they are pure potential - it is your own engagement with them and your relationship with them that will grow them into the powerful forces that inform your chakras in new ways. That is why you do the fire ceremonies, to grow these seeds with fire.
Take time after each fire ceremony to source yourself from the archetype in each chakra, see your world from that perspective, so that you get your own sense of connection to each archetype. lnstead of being exclusively informed by our histories and by our cultural prescriptions, these organizing principles of the Universe, begin to organize our energy centres.
great serpent - 1st chakra (root)
jaguar - 2nd chakra
hummingbird - 3rd chakra
eagle + condor - 4th chakra
huascar - 5th chakra
He became the harmonizing principle of the Lower World - the chaotic dark place of all creative potential. He/she is the renewer of the Earth and our own personal need of renewing our own earth, fields that are fallow, places that need aerating. The gift of Huascar is to harmonize our relationship with our Shadow.
quetzelcoatl - 6th chakra
pachakuti - 7th chakra (crown)
Pachakuti allows us to recognize what can be changed and changing it before it is born.
