What is a heyoka? According to Wikipedia, the heyoka

is a kind of sacred clown in the culture of the Lakota people of the Great Plains of North America. The heyoka is a contrarian, jester, and satirist, who speaks, moves and reacts in an opposite fashion to the people around them.

My friend K explained it this way:

The essence of Heyoka is being opposite.
Dark spirits send us Heyoka thoughts all the time.
Our challenge is discerning the truth.

He thinks Trump is a Heyoka. I guess he had discussed it with his twin flame, and she is the one who claims he is. Now this is an interesting premise…it certainly seems that Trump exemplifies the idea of a contrarian, jester and satirist…being very opposite to what he should be as a politician.


It is also said that the most powerful type of empath is the Heyoka empath, who is, according to this article:

someone who sees the world differently and acts in a way that is the opposite of normal.

And this post by David Wolfe claims:

An empath has different levels, and the most valued type is known as Heyoka. Heyoka is a Native American term for those who are emotional mirrors to those around them. The word means “sacred clown” or “fool.” Heyokas show others their faults, shortcomings and weaknesses, but they also provide a way to help overcome these weaknesses.

Although some aspects of Trump could be likened to a Heyoka – in the general sense of the Lakota clown or trickster – I don’t think he fits in with the Heyoka empath idea. They are supposed to be:

deeply sensitive to another’s energy (like other Empaths) and can see how emotions of various people play out and affect each other on a large scale.

In Native American tribes where Heyokas were respected and revered for their abilities, Heyokas would be the ones to open people’s eyes to new possibilities and different angles of a situation. They also had the ability to shift the energy of a group through their understanding of emotions.

In our modern society, a Heyoka may be a peacemaker or someone who is particularly good at working with people and keeping energy in a group balanced.

Nawww…this doesn’t sound like Trump at all! Empathic, I don’t think so! LOL


Yet in this previous article, HEYOKA: THE MOST POWERFUL TYPE OF EMPATH, states:

When you meet a Heyoka in person, they act as a great emotional mirror. What you see in them will show you what you must work on to grow and evolve spiritually. Connecting with a heyoka can be an emotional experience. You may leave feeling angry or leave feeling an incredible sense of love.

As an emotional mirror, whenever a Heyoka senses an emotional reaction in you, they use it as a guide of what to reflect back to you that will help you most on your journey.

Sometimes they do this unconsciously.

Say you leave a Heyoka feeling irritated and angry because of their ‘arrogance’. In reality, this is the Heyoka’s way of showing you your need to be humble.

Hmmm…could Trump be a shiny mirror showcasing some of our own unsavory aspects of racism, sexism, intolerance, etc, etc???

Addendum: Here is an interesting article that sees Trump from a more Jungian perspective: that he is 

actually your “teacher,” for he creates more friction and shadow triggers, hence more potential to wake people up from an esoteric alchemical perspective (Clinton would have been the sleeping pill for most people, even though she’s the more dangerous psychopath, hidden behind the mask of a “woman”), but only if people take back their projections and engage in some serious and sincere soul searching cutting through their programed socially/cultural conditioned identifications to ignite the alchemical fire within.
