Medicine Wheel Animals.
In a recent inspiration piece I discussed the importance of a physical and conceptual practice known as The Medicine Wheel. Animals are associated closely with this type of practical spirituality and in understanding more about why, these symbols can determine, the beliefs and thoughts attributed to this spiritual process.
The four animals are:
The Bear – a keeper for the direction of the West, bears can be good reserves of energy as they take their time. In accomplishing tasks it is to the Bear we look for the awakening of reserves of strength from within. Bears adore to take full scope of new heights and physical mounting to climb trees as a purpose for achieving new levels from which to look around at the landscape, this gives us the idea that we should too broach new horizons. Bears are resourceful and look inside themselves for the solution to a problem. Honey gives them a sweet outlook on life. Fierceness comes paw to paw with a bear and its shadow is enough to bring fear to many. The bear tells us that it is all right and encourages taking a stand and commanding power. They are keen animals in undertaking a path and sensing the right route.
The Buffalo – known as a keeper of the North, is a link to abundance, grounding in life and animals who show that initiative can help you gain success. Synchronised and honouring self the buffalo is a spiritual symbol and animal in the Native American tribe culture who shows that opportunities should be taken and decisive activity could bring about prosperity.
The Eagle – keeper and Spirit guide of the Eastern quadrant. Messages and understanding of new heights along with diversity are shown in this gallant striking bird. The inner-strength and visionary power in its control and swiping motion are attributes of abilities to be both predator and instigator. The vision and foreshadowing of events to come give the Eagle a link between the Earth and the Sky and in spiritual relation gives this animal or the coming into contact with a potent and positive connection to clairvoyance.
The Mouse – or known as the animal symbol of the Southern Quarter. The mouse can be seen as an occasional dreamer and can sometimes be disinterested in real-life situations. Inconsistency and confusions can be a mere normality at times in their lives and creatures of the night they often live by more cosy and confined means but in storing and locating homes they can be the best nest builders and family makers. They can make such a lot out of very little resources and are good examples of thrifty, economic habits.
Symmetry, equal balance and level conscience can all be attained as a result of finding out about the medicine wheel. It is moreover a process which helps to give introspective thoughts, balance out your focus in life and to give a better-defined direction.
