“Among the People, a child’s first Teaching is of the Four Great Powers of the Medicine Wheel. To the North is found Wisdom. The South is the place of Innocence and Trust. The West is the Looks-Within Place, which speaks to our introspective Nature. The East is the Place of Illumination, where we can see things clearly, far and wide….

At birth, each of us is given a particular beginning place within these Four Great Directions. This starting place gives us our first way of perceiving things, which will then be our easiest and most natural way throughout our lives. But any person who perceives from only one of these Four Great Directions will remain a partial man.”

– The Seven Arrows by Hyemeyohsts Storm

This sacred prayer honors the four direction of the medicine wheel and calls in these forces for clearing. As you honor the winds of each of the four directions, slowly face your body in that direction, fully taking in the energy of the direction.

Four Directions Space Clearing Prayer

To the winds of the South,

Great serpent, Wrap your coils of light around me,

Teach me to shed the past the way you shed your skin, To walk softly on the Earth.

Teach me the Beauty Way.

To the winds of the West,

Mother jaguar,

Protect my medicine space.

Teach me the way of peace, to live impeccably

and show me the way beyond death.

To the winds of the North,

Hummingbird, Grandmothers and Grandfathers,

Ancient Ones

Come and warm your hands by my fire,

Whisper to me in the wind,

As I honor all those that have come before me,

And all that have come after me.

To the winds of the East.

Great eagle, condor,

Come to me from the place of the rising Sun.

Keep me under your wing.

Show me the mountains I only dare to dream of.

Teach me to fly wing to wing with the Great Spirit.

Mother Earth.

I pray for the healing of all of your children.

The Stone Peace. The Plant People.

The four legged, the two-legged, the creepy crawlers.

The finned, the furred and the winged ones.

All our relations.

Father Sun, Grandmother Moon, to the Star nations.

Great Spirit, you who are known by a thousand names

and you who are the unnamable One.

Thank you for bringing me here.
