The Living Wheel is named after the sacred Native American teaching called the “medicine wheel”.
The medicine wheel is a sacred teaching that guides us in living in a good way.
It creates sacred space, blesses prayers and connects us with all our spiritual allies and teachers.
For a number of Native American nations, the Medicine Wheel is powerful sacred symbol and tool. Each tribe has its own understanding of the nature and use of a medicine wheel.
Generally a medicine wheel has five directions. Each direction corresponds to a different element and quality.
East – the element of Air, and the quality of imagination and thought.
South – the element of Fire, and the quality of sacred warriorship.
West, the element of Water, and the quality of emotion and intuition.
North – the element of Earth and the quality of prayer and service.
Center – the element and quality of the Self.
One teaching is that a human walks the Good Red Road in their lifetime – from South to North, balancing the energies of the masculine East, and the feminine West.
MEDICINE WHEELS IN HEALING
By carefully placing sacred objects, I can make a medicine wheel – a form of sacred space. This sacred space enhances healing and magic. When forming a medicine wheel, I call in the Guardians of each Lodge (or direction). This creates a ring of energy held in place by powerful spiritual beings, dedicated to a specific purpose.
A medicine wheel amplifies healing energies, and releases energies that are no longer serving the recipient of healing. It acts both as a vortex and a protection circle at once. The experience can be very intense and powerful.
I use medicine wheels as the cornerstone to my work. They are powerful and have a very pure energy. I look forward to sharing them with you.
