Heyóka

HeyokaThere are some conflicting descriptions of what Heyóka are yet even these hold many similarities. Some tradition says a Heyóka is a trickster spirit, a contrarian, jester, satirist or sacred clown. The Heyóka spirit speaks, moves and reacts in an opposite fashion to the people around it. In Lakota mythology, Heyóka is also a spirit of thunder and lightning. He is said to use the wind as sticks to beat the drum of thunder. Other tradition says they are Indigo Children. A trait common to both is the backwards way of doing things as well as the visions/dreams and contrarian traits.

The trait of thunder and lightning associated with Heyóka legend can be seen as more figurative than literal. Becoming Heyóka is like being born again (if you weren’t born Heyóka). This awakening is like being struck by lightning. The thunder can be viewed as the waves they make in the world by going against the grain.

While some Native American traditions view Heyóka as spirits, others view them as traits seen in some children born to the Baby Boomers and beyond, i.e. Generation X and New Boomers (Indigo Children).

Heyóka are also known as Thunder Beings or Thunder Dreamer. Many traditions tie this all in to ET’s and universal consciousness. They can speak with God or angels. The purpose of the Heyóka is to transition the world from a left brain society to a right brain society in preparation for our evolution as a species as well as the evolution of Mother Earth. To assist others in realizing that the Earth is a living being and to transition away from our current monetary and materialistic belief system to one of higher consciousness where Mother Earth and all living beings take precedence.

HeyókaHeyóka are in contact with the spirit world as well as other dimensions (see my article The Blue Light). They receive warning of when natural disasters will occur on Earth and where the safe places to go are. This is also part of Hopi prophecy and the main reason that I feel I was told to move to New Mexico.

Heyóka may have several of the following traits:

  • Seem to do things backward or contrary.
  • Are intuitive — they can sense things before they happen.
  • Are sensitive — they feel others feeling and get drained by them.
  • Have visions/dreams.
  • Are very creative and create original and one of a kind abstract artwork.
  • Often become healers, medicine men and spiritual leaders.
  • Clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition.
  • Live and talks about the past a lot.
  • They like to lead and really hate following.
  • Are spatial – they can see things and fit them together magically.
  • Love music and are very sensitive to the vibration.
  • Are abstract and see things others don’t.
  • Are moody and easily affected by their surroundings.
  • Are sometimes fearful and insecure — they feel the presence of spirits and this often puts them on edge.
  • Can go into an empty store and within a few minutes many other people will appear.
  • Are thought of as different and may be ridiculed for their thoughts and often strike back with ridicule.
  • Like the noise and lights and they always have to have music or something playing.
  • Think big picture and seem to know how things will fit together.
  • Saw the 11:11, 12:12 phenomena way before others.
  • Know there is a creator or god but not the way it is taught today.
  • Think language and math are boring and they know the answers without calculating it.
  • Do poorly in traditional schools — strive in hands on and arts schools.
  • Are worldly, they understand and pay attention to current events.
  • Are slow to talk but if they know you are listening and not judging they love to talk.
  • Are argumentative but turn peacekeeper when others are arguing.
  • Are empathic and hates crowds because people take their energy away.
  • Are very good at right brain things but only when they feel like it.

HeyókaOf the 27 traits listed above, I possess 24 of them. The light/noise one is borderline as I am highly sensitive to light and people noise makes me very anxious and uncomfortable. However, music or white noise I find very soothing. I have 2 fans running in my room 24/7/365 partly because still air also bothers me and partly for the white noise.

I am also highly sensitive to drugs and alcohol. I do not drink or do drugs at all because my body rejects it, almost violently. I feel a strong need to be dialed in and aware at all times and being impaired in any way is something I go out of my way to avoid. If I were under the influence of anything I believe I would miss many of the signs and instructions I receive.

This is part of the process many Heyóka struggle with. Part of this struggle is overcoming an addiction either by choice or by force because you must go thru difficult times in order to become enlightened.

I am also able to recognize other Heyóka upon meeting them. There is a connection you sense almost immediately. Heyóka do not generally announce themselves but will talk about it with another Heyóka. Some do not yet know they are Heyóka and possibly never will due to other things that get in the way such as materialism, greed and a general lack of spirituality prevalent in our society today. You have to consciously distance yourself from modern beliefs and connect with Mother Earth and our brothers and sisters from the stars. This may sound a little New Agey but it’s simply about knowing the Earth is a living being and that our ancestors come from the stars.

HeyókaBeing a contrarian or Heyóka does not make you strange, weird or an outcast. One should not be concerned with what others think of you. It simply means that you’re vibrating on a higher level and aware of more than what others see. You cannot convert others but instead should lead by example. By being Heyóka others around you will either pick up on it or they won’t. Those that do will understand and eventually consciousness will raise on a global scale. Those that choose not to join in will be left behind.

When I was told to move to New Mexico and eventually understood the reasons why, I had to leave many behind. My job is not to convince them to relocate to a safe zone. It’s something you either feel inside or you never will. Since moving to New Mexico a couple of close friends are seriously considering moving here but I didn’t plant that seed by any means other than my being here. This is something they sensed on their own by being aware of the signs they experience in their own lives. Our society cannot and will not advance until we reach a higher vibration and join our brothers and sisters from the cosmos. Heyóka are a big part of that but cannot force others to become more spiritually aware.

As the Hopi say in their prophecy regarding the end of the Forth World and the beginning of the Fifth World, we are killing Mother Earth and she’s going to respond. This is the transitional phase that we are currently in.

The story of the butterfly

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly.
One day a small opening appeared.
He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to squeeze its body through the tiny hole.
Then it stopped, as if it couldn’t go further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly.
He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bits of cocoon.
The butterfly emerged easily but it had a swollen body and shriveled wings.

The man continued to watch it, expecting that any minute the wings would enlarge and expand enough to support the body,
Neither happened.
In fact the butterfly spent the rest of its life crawling around.
It was never able to fly.

What the man in his kindness and haste did not understand:
The restricting cocoon and the struggle required by the butterfly to get through the opening was a way of forcing the fluid from the body into the wings so that it would be ready for flight once that was achieved.

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives.
Going through life with no obstacles would cripple us.
We will not be as strong as we could have been and we would never fly.
