The Wisdom of Woodpecker

I was surprised at first when Bear guided me to meet Woodpecker. For, instead of Woodpecker, a great dragon stood before me. The dragon breathed fire and his breathe manifested as tunnels of light before my eyes. I recalled the journey with Snake and the spiraling pathways a creative life force that snake was a part of. I stepped into the tunnel and was greeted by Woodpecker, who flew by my side.

"Watch this," he said. Woodpecker began to sing and the patterns in the light tunnel began to shift. As the pattern shifted there was an accompanying rhythmn that shifted as well. Woodpecker spoke, "All reality is the balance between scructure and energy moving through the structure. Think of a drummer holding a beat, setting a pattern. Now think of a flute playing through the pattern. When the pattern shifts the flute has to shift to the new time signature. If it does not, the song will be disharmonious. Energy moves through structure and both manifest at different densities through your multidimensional existence. Woodpecker holds the knowledge of the dance between the two."

The space shifted and we found ourselves in a green forest. Woodpecker was drilling holes within a dead tree, looking for food. "My tapping is the rhythmn, all of us woodpeckers are great drummers, in fact, it’s in our nature to understand the power of sound, we ride it’s waves everyday. Did you know that all bird song resonates with 7th dimensional light pathways? We can teach you of this." Woodpecker continued, "Do you remember the story of the first flute?" "Of course," I replied. "The first flute story is one of my favorites." It tells the tale of Woodpecker coming into the dream of a young man and teaching him to make the first flute. "This story is about these patterns. It is to show you that all of life is a song with patterns and melodies and different instruments and dancers. If I show up you are being asked to look at these patterns within your own life, to look at the vibration you are putting into the world, to dance, to drum, to play music. I hold all of these medicines. Are you being too structured? Are you not being structured enough? Many of you either completely resist structure or are way too rigid with it. It’s a dance. I can teach you how to achieve better balance within it. Just ask me why I have presented myself too you."

With that, Woodpecker flew off and bear guided me out of the forest. Wanishi.
