Transformation. Letting go of the old. Initiation. Harvest. Gather your inner resources. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t go ahead. Trust your heart. Chaos brings positive change. Almost all change comes out of turmoil; don’t be concerned if there’s confusion in your life. It will all work out.
Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: In the medicine wheel, the west is the direction that symbolizes the fiery setting sun, autumn, the waning moon and the time of harvest, and the tumultuous years of teenagers in the human cycle. Out of the chaos arise illumination and transformation. In order for the new to ignite in your life, it’s necessary to let go of the old. Sweep away the debris. The Spirit Keep of the West reminds us to slow down our rapid growth . . . and harvest what we have attained. In the autumn, leaves are burned to make way for new growth. Release the dross in your life to make way for new growth.
The Journey: Stand facing the west and the setting sun. Imagine that all limitations and blockages in your life are flowing from your heart into the sun; as the sun sets, it carries with it your cares and concerns to be transformed by its purifying energy.
