Medicine Wheel Healing

The Medicine Wheel and its sacred teachings assist individuals along the path towards mental, spiritual, emotional and physical enlightenment. Medicine in this text refers to anything that promotes harmony in our journey in this lifetime. Native Americans created many wheels that are still present today. It is said that if you follow the Sacred Hoop and consider the lessons you learn there, it will change you. It is the Medicine Wheel that connects us to ourselves and the rest of the Universe. The medicine wheel teachings are about walking the earth in a peaceful and harmonious way assisting in creating a healthy mind, strong inner spirit, inner peace, clarity, spirituality and a strong healthy body.

A Medicine Wheel can best be described as a mirror within, which everything about the human condition is reflected back and that all lessons are equal, as are all talents and abilities. It requires courage to look into the mirror and really see what is being reflected back about an individual’s life. It is a symbol for the wheel of life which is forever evolving and bringing new lessons and truths to the walking of one’s path. It is a pathway to truth, peace and harmony. It helps us with our creative “Vision”, to see exactly where we are in life, which areas we need to work on and develop, what we need to ‘let go of’, what ‘new seeds/beginnings’ we want to plant, all the while connecting us to our full potential.

This affects the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, energetic and nutritional well-being of an individual. My workshop will address this by giving you the awareness and tools through the chakra/endocrine system connection, (chakras: major energy centers connected to the endocrine system and to our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing) the body’s Chi system and utilizing a new technique I developed called Energetic Body Dialogue, for healing and lifestyle management.

Balancing the Masculine and Feminine Energies

We all have a mix of masculine and feminine energies in our bodies, energy fields and psyches. The masculine energies are characterized by linearity, orientation to goals, mental focus and are generally felt on the right side of our bodies. The feminine energies are circular, concerned by feeling and emotion, they expand the mind and are felt on the left side of our bodies.

Instead of seeing these energies as gender specific, we can shift the paradigm by seeing these as a self-reflection of our spirit and how these energies play out and manifest in patterns and behaviors in our everyday lives. What is your tendency when managing your job, handling family matters, and relating to other people? Again, we all have a mix of these energies and the proportion changes with every context. There are, however, distinct patterns that emerge if you only begin to become aware of them and then articulate them. Having explored and then discovered your patterns in the way that you live your life, you can achieve a more fulfilling life by balancing your energies.
