Thunderbird and Heyoka, the Native "Sacred Clown"
 
Below is a perception of why Heyoka and Thunderbird are connected in many Native American lores...and Thunderbird will be with a Heyoka through every reincarnation of that person..it's a forever thing.
At the bottom is my own experience with meeting Thunderbird....
and there may be more of you out there !
love, addy
excerpt from the first article:
The Thunderbird's association with heyoka clowns is not simply serendipitous. The fact that the Thunderbird displays many paradoxical and contradictory attributes links it to Trickster figures and to the contraries of Plains Indians culture. This culture complex probably resulted from Indian beliefs about nature and the ways in which thunder and lightning exemplified the manners in which it could be at once capricious, beneficent, and destructive. The Thunderbird's own link to the original Great Mystery suggests that the role of the sacred clown was seen as one of the highest in Plains society - like wandering fools in Europe, they were thought to be touched by the Divine power itself. Like Thunderbird himself, the heyoka was thought to be a conduit to forces that defied comprehension, and by his absurd, backwards behavior he was merely showing the ironic, mysterious dualities that existed within the universe itself.

my own experience:
years ago, when i was exploring some of my guides, i meditated on meeting my " Protection" guide......after some minutes i suddenly felt pounding palpitations and had trouble breathing !...
i sat there feeling huuugely anxious, what i think a panic attack would be like !!!!!!!

slowly before me from the ground rose a HUGE multicolored, striped beaked face, body, outstretched wings......i was enthralled...still could hardly breathe, my heart was pounding my ribs.....i thought it was a hawk, didn't have a clue......he stayed for a few long moments, and then disappeared.....

i sat there trying to collect myself....my heart and breathing normalized only after many long minutes.....
i sat thinking....WOW !!! had never encountered any entity NEARLY as powerful.......i felt honoured and overwhelmed indeed to have this protection guide.......
only weeks later did a "voice" tell me this was no hawk, it was Thunderbird.....so i researched Him......

and there indeed ..the Haida Thunderbird, exactly ( except the beak on mine is bigger, and his head was in profile).

I also feel very close to Thunder beings and Lightning!  There is an electricity there that thrills me.  I'm thinking that only the Heyoka and Clowns are able to deal with this intense energy because they (we?) ground it with their (our?) humor and weirdness. ;-)

Here's something about the Sacred Clown:

I've recently read a wonderful book about Cosmology (fiction combined with non fiction!) by one of my favorite priestesses, Pamela Eakins.  It's called "The Lightning Path."  It is part of her Mystery School, called The Lightning Spiral:

The first sound of thunder in spring, in China, was celebrated as the Dragon beneath the earth waking up!  I also believe that the electrical quality of lightning is part of the Kundalini in our bodies......

it's more and more evident to me that you are also some version of heyoka, TW...there are just too many synchronicities lol. Maybe you could ask Thunderbird to visit you in meditation and see what happens !

xox love, addy

I once had a dream about a being that I called "Titanium Man."  He (?) was a being about 12 feet tall.  He was made of pure energy.  For some reason I threw my arms around him and felt the electricity go through me....I held on, for dear life...!

I also had a dream (not long ago) where a multi-sexual person (a he/she?) gave me a bowl of "Thunderbolt Soup" to eat.

very very cool stuff, TW !!!!!

I'm sure those things are significant...you are drawing energy from these sources ?

<G> Thunderbolt soup sounds better than what i had in a vision as a child: stone soup !!

It was thick liquid stone.. lol..i know what stones taste like, of course...i sucked on them when i was little : P

love you !

Ok so I took your advice guys.. I have been feeling righteous rage against the machine lately (the school system in particular) so I called upon the thunder gods to assist and invoked my sovereign right as a divine being for change in the system that we are living in. To start there has since been massive thunderstorms and lightening cracking the skies (lovely) then my daughter comes home from school today and tells me so much has changed at school. They are now having a student vote system as to what type of uniform the kids want and Many other very positive changes :) the best news is that her new math teacher is (in her words) an old hippie lol he is teaching them the power of "now" living in the moment :) this is such great news for me and my daughter is stoked as this is what I've been telling her all along. Btw, I got a laugh when she told me his surname is Knight.. Defs an old soul.. Anyway just thought I'd share a bit of good news :) much love, Stone xx

Wow, Stone....that is AWESOME!  I loved that you "invoked my sovereign right as a divine being for change in the system that we are living in." 

It reminds me of Oya, a Yoruba Goddess of Storm and Change!

BTW, Caroline Casey (astrologer) identifies Oya with the planet of change, Uranus! "Let the winds of change blow through my life, bringing the most radically enlivening thing that could possibly happen. I am hoisting my sails. Parasail me into the place where I can connect with my allies, and together we can do the most good." (Casey) She opens her radio show (every week) with a song to Oya!

Caroline is a teacher of "the Compassionate Trickster" mystery school! ;-)

It could not fail ! Spells sent with such a propellant simply cannot fail !

KUDOS dear one, onward and upward ...the Gods are listening : )

love you, addy
