Waya Equoni Pejuta: Opening the Medicine Wheel
This is the way we open the Medicine Wheel at Waya Equoni Pejuta Medicine Wheel.
We Always Give Thanks…..
- Activate the Element of Fire: Candle, and if time permits, we light a fire.
Activate the Element of Air: We Sage the dancing ground, the Medicine Wheel, and all participants.
Activate the Element of Earth: we offer tobacco and corn meal to the 4 directions. If time permits, we also make a food offering, sweet treat, meal, or fruit or vegetable.
Activate the Element of Water: We Water the Medicine Wheel (all of her prayers) and allow the water to nourish the Cherry tree during the ceremony. I will post more about the Cherry tree in the near future.
Activate the Element of Sound with our prayers, chants, and songs, We also drum, and dance.
