Spirit Keeper of the East

New beginnings. A fresh cycle is occurring in your life. Wipe the slate clean; it’s now time to release the old and start again. No matter what has happened in the past, it doesn’t need to repeat in the future.

Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: In native traditions, the directions are honored. It’s believed that every direction has an associated spirit that can be called upon. In the great cycle of life, the east is the place of the rising sun; it’s also associated with planting seeds in the springtime, birth, the waxing moon, and new beginnings. Pulling this card means that this is the close of one cycle and the beginning of another. Although it’s often difficult to release familiar routines, situations, or relationships when they no longer empower you, your native spirit asks that you not cling to the old, but set sail into new waters. Face your fear and allow yourself to stretch in a new direction. Wonderful opportunities will be born in your life.

The Journey: Stand and be still. Breathe and center yourself. Then slowly turn in a circle. Close your eyes and feel the energy of each direction. There’s a difference in the feeling in each direction. Stand facing east as the sun rises to sense the unique energy of the direction.
