Chief Golden Light Eagle gives marvelous perspective on light and thought in Native America at a Star Knowledge Conference linked below. He speaks about a fundamental perspective of the Native America worldview that remains in Western sciences and culture. It is germane to the Earth Mind and the TimeStar.

“Sioux” is the French name for a Native American tribe with several different branches or bands. Their names for themselves include Lakota, Dakota, Nakota, and other bands. The Yankton are part of the Dakota people. Four directions and four colors are central in creation motifs throughout Native America. The Lakota speak of six directions comprising the four cardinal directions plus Father Sky and Mother Earth. Each of the cardinal directions represents a road as a way of living, being, and perceiving but is not identical to genetic racial origin. Albeit, origins of the four primary races roughly correspond with the directions of the roads. North is White, South is Black, West is Red, and East is Yellow. Many speak of the Rainbow People. The Rainbow people could be viewed as people of mixed racial descent with ancestors from different corners of the world but in other perspectives they are far more than physical bodies.
Spirit is the essence that distills all physical existence. An essence of Spirit is associated with each direction. In the image of the six directions (left) the center is the point in which all the roads and colors are viewed in balance. It shows the center as a physical position for a two dimensional representation, but in the fullness of its meaning the center is more than a discretely physical place. It is the center of spiraling energies that give definition to the physical world but is beyond the physical world of brains, toes and hair that Western science uses to measure bodies.
An Apache man explained this perception of the rainbow in a person as energy more than the physical color of one’s skin. He had lived with his grandparents among the Apache in New Mexico as a child. His grandfather was a shaman, and he and other children had been trained in the Apache tradition. He had learned to see the colors of auras. I had been running to catch a bus I almost missed, and the man moved to sit next to me after I sat down. He said he had looked up as I ran to catch the bus and saw a rainbow running towards him. He said it took a moment to see my physical face as I got closer to the bus because he had been focused on the colors. The rainbow was the colors I carry, or aura in English. "Aura" originates in the Greek and means "breath or breeze." It is the breath of life.
The shaman’s focus was the key. Had he not been trained to perceive as he did he would not have seen the colors. His perception of the world as light was natural to him, because of his shamanic training. He had seen me as an energy matrix in contrast to the physical color of my skin. I use this as an example of Native American perception of the nature of energy.
In order to see the rainbow, my new friend perceived the light of subtle energy. In the moment he saw the rainbow of energy he was in balance and reflective of those colors in order to perceive them. He didn’t say this in those words, but he must certainly have known it because of the way he described his training.
“We like to pray in pitch black so you can learn how to see,” Chief Golden Light Eagle said. That’s the simplicity of it. Instances of pitch black sweat lodges being illuminated in light are common among those who pray this way. The illumination comes in different ways at different times, but we know it comes when it is needed.
My UFO contacts / teachers are known as the Old Ones throughout Native America. They long ago began to live in the light beyond the physical world in which we live. They are the progenitors of extraterrestrial races as well as humans. They said I could call them the Ancient of Ancients and advised me to recognize people by their halos, because that’s how they see us. They know us by our light. The rainbow people are light spectra that follow the footsteps of the Old Ones, the Ancient of Ancients, through and beyond the physical world as Western science perceives it. This is why Native American sciences puzzle “Westerners” so greatly when scientists cannot find mechanical devices to measure the physical world the way they think it must be measured to be really “real” to them. What Western culture does not understand is that the simple act of measuring the world changes it. This factor is among the secrets of quantum mechanics Western science is beginning to explore.
Chief Golden Light Eagle reported his conversation in a UFO contact: “We travel by the Law of Light and the Law of Thought. You need to learn this in the future for your survival.” This knowledge is embedded in Native American centers as well as ancient traditions worldwide.
