Jennifer really wanted to feel good. Heck, she really wanted to look good, too! She thought about it a lot (maybe even MORE than a lot, like several times throughout the day). That longing to look and feel good was really always with her, somewhere in the back of her mind.
Problem was, she wanted to — but didn’t really know why it wasn’t happening for her. She seemed to be missing something …
Over the course of the next few weeks we will continue to outline how you can achieve, maintain or improve your health by using the ancient wisdom of the Native American medicine wheel.
During the first week we talked about making peace with your body. Next we looked at honoring your body, and how to be aligned with the balance of nature and natural law. This week we’re moving into the area of having clear intention for abundant health.
So How Do You Connect That to the Medicine Wheel?
The basic Native American medicine wheel is usually drawn as a circle with four equal quadrants that look like a times or plus symbol in the center. Then specific colors fill each space, depending upon the lesson or significance designed by the tribe or nation. For more information on how the Native American medicine wheel works click here.
To Reclaim Your Sacred Power
To activate your power, we’ve identified Four Essential Aspects to consciously manifest anything in your life, and it especially applies to setting a clear intention for abundant health.
Create a Clear Vision (East)
You need to put pencil to paper and begin to write out your clear intention of the abundant health that you are claiming for yourself:
- what are you doing?
- where are you?
- who are you with?
- how do you feel?
Ask Yourself Why and Have a Definite Purpose (South)
The reason WHY you are doing something is more important than the ‘what’ it is that you are doing. People are very rarely motivated by the what, in and of itself. It’s the reason WHY it’s important to you:
What difference is it going to make in your life?
Have Unwavering and Constant Faith (West)
Your abundant health that you are calling forth may not be apparent to you right now. Trying to establish a way to believe that it is possible, to believe that it is already done; to connect with it in a way that you have confidence in it; this can be challenging when the appearance of things are different.
Gratitude Felt on a Deep, Emotional Level (North)
I once heard that a ruler who was on his death bed said to his physician, “If you could give me 10 more minutes of life, I would give you my kingdom.” It was in that moment that he realized the TRUE golden treasure IS life; truly living it with zeal and finding others to make your life an adventure.
First, you will want to begin with a clear vision/clear mental image (East). Second, you need to have a definiteness of purpose, what is the reason it matters and what is the purpose of you claiming your abundant health (South). Next, unwavering faith, drawing on honesty and self-expression (West) Finally, gratitude, not only in words but felt on a deep emotional level, which gives back into the pool and the cycle turns all over again (North).
If you’d like to experience for yourself the practical teachings of the Native American medicine wheel, you are invited to join us as we gently guide you through a powerful program to Manifest Abundant Health.
