Reap and Harvest

In the northern hemisphere September’s moon signals a time to reap what has been planted as the day light hours grow shorter and temperatures drop.

In the Medicine Wheel concept September sits in the west of the wheel and is a time between the ages of 55-60 when a person reaps what they have sown.

For the most part, when your intent is pure the effects are far reaching. Where you have put your efforts will yield  the greatest results.

As you reap the fruits of your labor it is important to leave some of your harvest for the next growth cycle.

Avoid over harvesting and ensure your fields are tilled and ready for new thoughts in the spring.

When you gather your ideas, you may notice that some have fallen away.

Gleam your thoughts for the most far reaching efforts. Handle them with care.

As you elevate your thinking you harvest higher returns.

A good harvest insures survival. It allows you to share in ways you may never have imagined possible.

When you do the things you enjoy and live your dreams happiness and abundance has far reaching affects for you, your family and your community.

Think of the areas of your life that give you the greatest returns and provide the most satisfaction.

How will you share your good medicine so that the next generation will share in return?

AUGUST Thrive and Bare Fruit

By August what you have been working on takes on a life of its own.

Your efforts begin to bare fruit. Greater internal peace and harmony are often the results.

There is a sense of personal growth as you move around the Medicine Wheel concept and grow in consciousness.

In order for your dreams to continue to evolve apply the knowledge of natural growth cycles in all that you do.
When you do this you engage in a flow of universal energy as your thoughts come to life.

Higher levels of conscious application in your thinking results in greater heights of self development. A feeling of satisfaction is the result.

Knowing that what you think about has the potential to grow helps you to follow your dreams and reach for new ones.

When you are successful others see this and are more likely to be supportive in your endeavors. As your ideas come into the light you begin to realize your dreams.

The full moon in August is a time to look at areas of your life that are thriving.

Take inventory of what is working and identify efforts that are about to bare fruit.

7th Moon – July

31 JULY Ripen and Flower

Sometimes called the Flowering Moon, July brings rain,thunderstorms and moisture to the land. Electrical storms re energize the earth and stimulates the growth cycle. The new moon heightens the process.

Within the Medicine Wheel concept greater awareness of seasonal changes and natural cycles helps a person prepare for what lays ahead.

Understanding naturally occurring cycles maintains a connection with the divine and increases your knowing that all living organisms grow and reproduce. Because you are a living organism it is in your nature to do the same.

By July the seeds of thought you planted and nurtured begin to ripen and prepare to flower. It is the summer of your life and all your efforts up to this time begin to show. Remind yourself to go slow because anything can happen.

When conditions are right your thoughts will be in full bloom. What you nurture begins to manifest and your dreams come into being.

Expanding your awareness is like the many petaled lotus opening to reveal greater beauty. When you are open to the path of wisdom you know that your thoughts create your reality so you choose thoughts that are good for you and all your relations.

On the full Moon in July, go into your inner stillness and make a list of the good things that are happening in your life. Pay attention to what is beginning to flower and to what you would like more of.  A key to inner peace is to walk in gratitude for your many blessings at this time.

Attention and Care

June’s summer solstice has the longest day of the year.
It is the peak of the growing season as berries begin to appear.

Now is the time to look at what is growing in your field.
Expanding your awareness and increasing your personal energy field takes attention and care.

Just as the proper amount of sun, water and optimum growing conditions increase the potential of a producing a good yield, so too an environment that is organized and productive increases the chances of good things happening in your life.

By holding thoughts that are fresh and exciting you experience better health and become an expanded life force in the world.

Develop a resilience to unfavorable conditions and only respond to what is yours and you will grow in nature. Be the observer and know there is a delicate balance and a natural life cycle for all things.

When you pay attention to new and positive ideas you increase the potential of realizing your dreams.

Always consider new opportunities you can introduce into your world. Attention and care allows you to see what is working for you and what is not.

The full moon in June is a good time to identify areas of your life that will benefit from greater attention and care.

Root and Grow

As you move around the Medicine Wheel Concept each new moon is a reminder for change. Increase in day light hours speeds up growth. As increased life force transforms seeds from roots to stems and leaves new life pushes its way to the surface.

Now is a time to pay attention to what is taking root in your garden and to weed out potential issues before they become problems. Only keep what will enhance your life.

Just as a person would cultivate and organically spray the soil to remove pesky insects,  remove things in your life that slow you down.

Move dysfunctional relations out of the way and give new seeds of thought an opportunity to take root.

Too much or too little attention and effort either way will affect the outcome of your yield.

Commitment is the key when it comes to increasing momentum and life force. With commitment you will see the seeds of your thought take root and grow in ways you may never have imagined.

When physical well being is in balance, clarity and gratitude become a way of being.

Know that what you think of can take root and grow. Good thoughts introduce a shift in consciousness and reinforce the medicine of your thinking.

With good thoughts there is a better chance of great things happening.

April

A Time to Plant and Nurture

Each quartering of the Medicine Wheel brings change and greater knowledge.

With longer daylight hours in the northern Hemisphere the earth’s energy fields increase. The frost begins to leave the ground and birds return. Spring is a time to transplant seeds into fertile ground.

Pay attention to the conditions in your environment. Like seeds, different thoughts are planted at different times under different conditions.

When a person nurtures a thought and returns to it often there is greater possibility for that thought to manifest.

When your field of intention is clear you are ready for new thoughts to be planted. Always plant seeds of good intention and that you are passionate about. This will connect you with a greater sense of self and your place in the world.

Remember to only plant that which you would like more of and to protect your thinking from outside demands.

By giving daily attention and care to your thoughts you feed and nurture your dreams and your consciousness grows.

When you nurture your thoughts you enhance the ability to learn, change and pass on knowledge to the next generation.

In addition to determination, nurturing sometimes requires further education and training for personal experiences to grow.

Plant seeds of hope for good things to come. Nurture your soul with things that are beneficial .

As you journey around the Medicine Wheel Concept MARCH is a time to Prepare and Clear.

The full moon in March brings longer day light hours. Earth begins to thaw and new life force comes into being.

March is a time to select the seeds of intention you will plant as you move within the seasons of the Medicine Wheel.

In the natural growing season, it is a time to start new shoots to transplant and prepare the ground for seeds to flourish. Just as a farmer removes rocks, stumps and things that will get in the way of the crops you too must prepare the ground for your dreams to manifest.

Put supports in place to facilitate your personal growth.

Be crystal clear for what you would like in each area of your life.

Only allow thoughts that will enhance your life and the lives of others.

Gently eliminate energy streams that slow you down and get in the way.

Begin by disengaging from internal chatter and external debris.

As you prepare the ground to create the reality you wish to experience ensure your environment is rich and fertile.

Be passionate about your desires and tend to your own garden if you wish good things to grow.

Note that the ease and grace in which your life flows is an indicator that you are aligned with your true purpose and the natural order of things.

Only you can prepare and clear a path that makes life worth living.

FEBRUARY Rest and Renewal

As a person travels around the Medicine Wheel they notice that just as energy within each moon cycle waxes (increases) and wanes (decreases) thoughts also have a burst of activity followed by a time of rest and renewal.

The full moon in February signals a time to clear cellular memory fields and make room for new thoughts to evolve.

Colder temperatures and shorter day light hours allows the soil to rest and build up nutrients. These nutrients are the experiences and events from last year which become lessons that enrich your life.

Resting relaxes the nervous systems and allows your organs to repair and function at optimal levels.

As you rest, entertain new ideas that will enhance your well being. Be open to intuitive guidance. Listen to your thoughts and language.

Renewal serves to create a higher vision. As you imagine your future self remember to stay in your own story and allow your inner most thoughts to keep you on a path of well being.

Open yourself to new possibilities and you will vibrate at a higher frequency with more peaceful results.

The act of rest and renewal keeps a balance in your world.

Stand still and feel your Spirit soar.

January Drift and Dream

In addition to serving as a tool for personal growth, the Medicine Wheel Concept is also a calendar in which the quality of one’s life is enriched by observing the Moon. By applying this knowledge a person gains insight into how thought evolves in relation to natural growth cycles and sees that each moon signals’ a change of activity.

Just as the earth regenerates itself January is a time for you to drift and dream as you identify what new wisdom has been gained in the past year. Think of your experiences as nutrients that enrich the soil in which future seeds of thought will grow.

During this process of enlightenment consider ways you can apply this wisdom in the present to create new opportunities for the future.

To drift and dream requires going into the silence and only holding thoughts that inspire you. Inspired thought allows access to inner awareness and helps you to expand the purpose of your soul’s journey.

Drifting involves removing imaginary lines and exploring new thoughts and possibilities. It is always present focused and future oriented.

Dreaming is tapping into higher fields of consciousness that lead to self transformation. When you follow the path of Spirit your dreams guide you and nourish your soul.

Remember, the world is created by dreamers.

North

Written on July 11, 2014 at 9:21 am, by Leo Sawicki

North in the Medicine Wheel concept represents the Winter of one’s life and approximately the age of 70 plus. As you move around the wheel your role becomes an Elder and Spiritual Advisor.

The North is also the place of Air and the place of the mind. Sitting in the North on your wheel a greater understanding of nature and life cycles become clear.

For those who have lived their life in a good way, the North is a place of being grateful for life’s journey and a time of enjoying every moment of the day.

The North is also a place for preparing for change. The stones of cleansing, purity and renewal serve
as reminders for the next part of the journey. The journey where you can take nothing with you and you leave this world just as you came.

The Medicine Wheel Concept serves as a road map. It identifies places to reflect upon and paths you can walk to have a good life.

To sit in the North of the wheel is to cherish every day. It is a place of knowing the rhythm of the seasons and of understanding the cycle of life.

It is a time of cleansing and release. A time of purity and returning to a child like state.

It is also a time in your life for renewal. Know that each day brings an opportunity to be grateful in many ways.

Take a moment to look within.

Is there any unfinished business that you would like to make right?

Identify the legacy you will leave for future generations.

Maintain a journal of your journey.

Always walk in beauty.
