The knowledge of the medicine wheel is in earth. In the making of the medicine wheel you will learn things through thoughts, visions, and dreams. You will learn things through your own body. It is important to honor what you learn.
You have a right to it. What you learn though your own experience is yours. It belongs to no tribe. It comes from within you. It comes from earth itself. Whatever you believe in your life is your own sacred space. You create your sacred space and the medicine wheel is a doorway for you to enter and move in it. It comes to you through your own visions. It belongs to you, you own it.
Everything we learned about medicine wheel we learned from the medicine wheels. This siteis the teachings from the medicine wheel from our experience. When the earth gives you a gift, put it in the medicine wheel and return it as an offering. By putting it in the medicine wheel it becomes a sacred prayer. What do you want for you and the earth? You only get in response for what you give. This is the practical teachings from the medicine wheel. Put a rock from the earth in it, a flower, feather. Bring yourself to it, the offering is a prayer to manifest your vision in the world. By receiving a gift from the earth, you give it back and she gives it all to you. That is the teachings of the medicine wheel.
The stories we are telling started over 5000 years ago, before the word was written, before the tribes separated and becomes separate people. The stories belong to everyone. They have no legacy and descendent. They go back to the very beginning when we are one, and the earth was alive and living and we were all creatures on the earth. There was a time when human consciousness was one, when we looked outside of us and thought it was us, the same way the baby looks outside of itself and sees its mother. That was why the stories will return, the medicine wheel is a way of creating a sacred wheel to put you back in the beginning so you can see out of the eyes of the owl. So that you can feel the pulse of the earth like it was your own heart.
Your medicine wheel will be a ritual that is meaningful for the time in which you are living. It is not about going back to tribal traditions of contemporary first nation peoples. This site is intended to be used in the context of our own lives as we are living today with cell phones, communications, it is about living in the current time. The medicine wheel is a way of taking ourselves and making a sacred spiral that shifts space and time in the busy time we live in.
The medicine wheel creates a pause, a ceremony of exactly who we are in the world. It creates meaning, it is about seeing the sacred places in our world that are right there with us, seeing them for the first time and these must be the mysteries which can unfold in front of us right now. It is about making our lives the vision quest and making our lives the visionary path and bringing in the light and illuminating our own spirits. Just by doing this act, we create a shift in our own consciousness and that is all it takes to change the world and make it beautiful.
