The Sacred Hoop also known as the Medicine Wheel has multiple layers of meaning for our lives. The Medicine Wheel is multi-dimensional. Not only does the Medicine Wheel help us in our spiritual life but it also helps us in our emotional, physical and mental lives. A few years ago I found another dimension that the Medicine Wheel assists us on.
In late 2006, I began to see the Medicine Wheel in a new way. I began to see how I could apply the Medicine Wheel as an energetic template much like the feng shui bagua. During this time I was also immersed in teaching ascension courses based in on the MerKaBa and sacred geometry. These seemly separate studies, Medicine Wheel and Sacred Geometry began to merge together.
In sacred geometry the Platonic Solids are known as the building blocks of all life. The Platonic Solids reside in the Tree of Life. There are 5 Platonic Solids: Octahedron, Icosohedron, Tetrahedron, Hexahedron and the Dodecahedron. Four of the Platonic Solid have a relation to the four natural elements. The octahedron is related to the air element; the icosohedron is related to the water element; the tetrahedron is related the fire element; and the hexahedron is related the earth element. The fifth Platonic Solid is the dodecahedron which is related to Spirit/Creator.
I decided to see what the Medicine Wheel looks like and feels like if I used the Platonic Solids shapes to lay out a Medicine Wheel. I had an aha moment!
I realized that the Medicine Wheel is an ally to balance and clear a space. The Medicine Wheel is also an ally for manifesting. The key is to be conscious or aware of this special sacred geometry. You need to be aware of how energy flows through the different dimensions as it comes through the Medicine Wheel.
Also, and more importantly, seeing and feeling the Medicine Wheel in this way is another perspective of “All my relations”. We, the entire Universe, are interconnected. We are all made up of Platonic Solids. The Platonic Solids are the common thread that weaves us together.
In 2007 at the Interior Alignment Conference in California, I presented my findings. I called my presentation, Sacred Geometry – A Divine Plan. Preparing my findings for this conference helped me to lay a more stable foundation for the courses I taught in ascension, Medicine Wheel, space clearing, feng shui and drum making. And, now I have an indoor Medicine Wheel created using the Platonic Solids in my home and at all my workshops too.
