One of the most valuable tools I’ve learned in a lifetime of shamanic study is following the cycles of the Medicine Wheel. The Medicine Wheel is a circle divided into four sections each occupied by one of the four cardinal directions, East, South, West and North.
The winter Solstice is this Friday December 21 at 2:23PM PT and is the gate that moves us from the west into the direction of the north on the Medicine Wheel.
The west teaches us about releasing and letting go of our attachments and the things that have served us (or not!) back to pachamama, Mother Earth to prepare us for the inner work of the North.
As we move to the direction of the North, from a shamanic perspective, it’s all about using the increased darkness and going into the available stillness to build strength and personal power.
Everything naturally slows down so we can work deeply with Spirit to rebuild ourselves, learn new skills, heal our ancestry, reset and integrate all the work we have done this year. It’s been a challenging year to say the least so this inner time is richly deserved.
Many of us are reeling a little bit trying to find our new center.
Use this time in the North from Solstice to Equinox to bring things into perspective and create a plan with Spirit to emerge stronger. It is our duty as Bearers of the Light to upgrade ourselves so we live a happier life, a more helpful life.
I’ll be offering a class in January to help realign our physical bodies using the Whole 30 eating plan along with a myriad of practices to enhance and redesign self care and nurturing, ultimately to Love ourselves more and Be Light. Hope you can join me.
