When I get a vision, I am told exactly, step by step, how to do it, and if I don’t do it right then there are angels, or beings, that come from the other side and tell me I made a mistake.
Once you agree to be a visionary, the above beings give you a vision and you have to do it; you can’t say no. Once we have decided to come to this Earth, we have to live up to certain criteria, because what we are doing has a direct connection to what is going on in the other dimensions. Each of us came here as the result of a vision. The planet had a vision, and as a result of that, you happened and I happened. Once the planet had a vision, then we came as a result of divine calling, divine longing. So we agreed to come down, and by the time we were born we had already been given a place on the planet. We were born to fulfill that vision. All the trials and tribulations are exercise. Their purpose is to make us the best possible conduits to move energy through the world, to enhance creation. We come here to manifest. We come to live in the world of illusion, to be in states of awe. ~ Sound, Native Teachings and Visionary Art, Pg. 143, Millichap Books
A vision is the soul drinking light. It starts with descending light, like falling rain. The descending light is the feminine, the receptive. It is just light or undifferentiated energy. To someone perceiving the vision, it looks like a picture, or a phenomenon, but it’s really just the action of the soul drinking light. The visionary transformation happens in the act of perception. The soul, or consciousness, or the vast Self is drinking light that looks like awareness. It looks like receptivity; it has the quality of “as-above-so-below.” It has the quality of “heaven is here now.” What you want to achieve is here now, ready, given. Earth is fused with it; therefore, we can materialize it now and make it real.
That light is innocence. Everything is now open to learning; everything is now open to curiosity. Now we have the potential of creating from it what it can be or wants to be. Now we are given the energy. The vision gives the perceiver the energy — physical energy as well as mental, emotional, and spiritual energy. “Do it!”
Above all, the vision connects the personal self to the vast Self. In fact, it’s all simply the vast Self seeing, making something perceptual because it is going to materialize it. Without materializing, matter can’t exist. Without materializing, the land can’t exist — the land, which is a metaphor of the vast Self.
You see, the vast Self is total nothingness. Nothing. The earth is simply a concretized, slowed-down energetic being that ended up material. What the vastness sees is what it creates. But, because it is creating what it is seeing, that vast seeing that it’s doing is creating a lot of interrelationships — interconnectedness, and relationship connections. Perception does that by its very nature. Perception is a connector, a linker. Everything is linked to everything else.

In Tiwa, beauty is bah-chu
is related to the legs. Let me walk; we use our legs to walk. The word chu
means everywhere. When you are in the state of beauty, you are everywhere but nowhere. But you are in a state of movement, which is beauty that has connected to all the heavenly planes and is being carried by God. You are in a state of beatitude. When the Native American people speak of walking in beauty, they’re really saying, “Walk in love. It is the blessing way.”
One of the qualities of the blessing way is the connection that we have with the people that we love, our fellow human beings. What we need to do is keep a loving bond between us. Then we realize that if we have a loving bond with plants, animals, and the land around us, as if we were in a garden and we were the gardener, then we walk in beauty, and the beauty is who we are and what we are doing. Beauty comes from our relationship to all those around us.
