THE ESSENCE

The medicine wheel is a sacred hoop with the four cardinal directions well marked. It represents the cycle of life, the cycles of nature, and the circular pattern of our cosmos. It has been used for millennia in indigenous cultures to bring harmony and well-being to the village. Its directions symbolize the four steps the shaman takes to become a person of power and wisdom.

 

THE INVITATION

To manifest clear blue skies in your life, it is important that you take a look at certain aspects of your being. Enter the medicine wheel from the south and reflect on how you are still clinging to events from the past. Continue to the west and notice which relationships are toxic and drain your energy. Step into the north and ask yourself: “Do I know my passion and show it?” End at the east direction, visualizing how you want to live the next chapter of your life. Is is up to you how much time you spend in each direction–minutes, days, or months. But when you are done, make sure to step outside the wheel and contemplate your journey.

 

THE MEDICINE

You must not postpone your healing journey any longer. It can be difficult to start, but you must find the inner strength to step into the medicine wheel or you may lose your opportunity. There are many ways and many paths; choose the one you resonate most with. Once you have found it, the only mistake you can make is not to follow it. Go boldly!
