In this final video of our 3-part series, I show you how to take an experience through the Medicine Wheel to create lasting change in your life. I also answer a few questions from you guys, and (I hope) inspire you to take this even deeper.

In this first of three videos, we’ll go through each of the directions of the Medicine Wheel and what the energies are for each one. You’ll learn how the Medicine Wheel can be a great container for organizing your life, as well as how to use the Medicine Wheel as a deep, spiritual tool.

In this second video, I will share with you the 5 different Soul Archetypes and what their “personalities” are like. You will learn how we can have an imbalance of energy within the Soul Archetypes, including excess and deficient energy.

    Hi Dakota,
    Regards the archetypes. I scored 30% (my highest scores) on both Visionary and Alchemist. I feel like I am more the Alchemist but my meditation techniques come more from the visionary. Is that why my scores are even across the two? You said most people viewing this video (#2) are from the NS direction. I come from the WE direction. If that’s uncommon, why? I was trying to order my energy assessment results and went to look at what the report would look like and I lost my basket. Technology is not my forte. How do I get that back? My thanks for such informative videos. My soul feels like it’s coming back to life now that I’m taking time to nurture it with shamanic learning. Thank you so much. Susan McLean

      Hi Susan, Great questions … typically the WE vein of folks are driven by their careers/mental house or here in the physical world and can sometimes be turned off by the spiritual/emotional aspects. Doesn’t sound like that is your case at all. There are, actually, quite a few people (myself included) who are in the Mentorship who have high amounts of East energy and come to this arena to balance out all the mental stuff. Sometimes it can be a stretch to do that and other times not.

      As for your Assessment report, if you head over here: http://77.104.151.93/~gaiamedi/product/energy-assessment-reading/ you can re-order it. Just be sure to use the email address you used when taking the test and we’ll find it for you (in other words, don’t take the test again!)

      I hope that helps!

    I love the MindMap: its a great way to see all the information in a digestible format that I can explore at will. I now understand more about Father Sky and Mother Earth. Before they were words and now I can see how they are linked to other elements you have discussed in other teachings. I like the concept of seeds planted in the East manifesting as physical ailments in the West. I have studied Traditional Chinese Medicine in my line of work. Although the Wheel and TCM systems are very different, in some ways they overlap. They both show us how our minds and bodies are interconnected whereas Western Medicine tries to keep them separate. And they both explain things in an intuitive way using the natural world. I love your very clear explanations in this video and am eagerly moving to video #2.

      I found it amazing to look at my life cycle from birth to now, mid 40 where i recognise i have had one full cycle of all the seasons. To see what my beliefs and patterns were and how this played out from the perspective of seasons gives it so much more meaning and clarity. I was able to see the seeds planted at my birth grow into the experiences i needed to learn, to integrate them and overcome. I’m at my spring again. I’ve understood the patterns that didn’t serve me but i value them because it has shown me how to move forward with new patterns and beliefs. Learning about the medicine wheel has really enhanced my experience. Integrating the fundamental energies of the directions and the seasons has helped me understand how cycles underpin everything in life.

      Oh, can you only imagine if we all spent the first 10 years of our lives learning to be authentic, real, connected, intuitive, compassionate, and passionate???? Then learn math, and science and all the other stuff. I can dream…
      thanks for watching and I hope you consider joining the Mentorship too!

        I have enrolled with my eldest son (23yrs) in a local Shamanic course of 13 Sunday starting on the 6th of January. I am still processing all of this shamanic information and healing my dear soul so I am experiencing struggle within my mind/soul . But I have decided to move on from this struggle….. Its been challenging as I have been pretty isolated…. So I am truly grateful for you and people like you sharing this empowering knowledge and way of shifting blocks….. I am Also shifting not so positive clise people to me and their negative energy influence.
        Once again thank you so very much for your work….. My youngest child ( of 4) is 10yrs and when I feel confident I shall start sharing with her too…
        Lots of love Dakota ✨✨✨♥️

    I have just finished watching the first video…I’m just so excited!..I’m finding it all so interesting and already it’s making some sense to me. I’ve learned that I am now in the north direction of my life…I’ve learned why I have made changes in my own life’s direction and also why I’m so passionate about the change..and why some of the seeds I planted during my journeying through the other directions didn’t bloom so well! Oh my..how grateful I am for this opportunity you have given me..and am looking forward to quiet time this evening so I can settle and watch the second video. I am already looking forward to the third one!…X

    This is so very interesting to me. I started this study in the South direction. I am in the North direction of my life and beginning the North direction time of year. When I stand in this space and look at my life from this perspective and begin in the East direction as a young child it is so fascinating. When I was in 6th grade I took a medical book to school with me every day to study the anatomy. I aspired to be a pathologist, at that time. I never became one… however, my formal studies have always lead me to the functions of the body. Traditional medicine never worked for me… too many pills not enough balance. I do look at the body in a wholistic way… inside through Hair tissue mineral analysis… and finding the root cause of an imbalance in the body from the subtle bodies, chakras, past lives etc. So, for me, it’s not the cause of death as in pathology…but rather the restoration of life by bringing the body back into homeostasis. The medicine wheel is making it easier as I continue to learn the application. Thank you. This video is a good resource for me.

      So happy to hear all this Denise! It has been wonderful to watch you gain these insights as we travel the wheel together!

    I love having a display in a map of what’ going on. Thank you for your gift! How can I feel into stagnant energy in one direction or an other and release the blockage into my natural flow? Is it possible to be going through a phase of intensity of one direction cause needs to deal with it and not being able to move on till the next.. for example big introspective north direction year long time? These yeare I feel I needed this phase a year long as so much disassosiated and lost my spiritual body was in the past. So sort of a north direction intense treatment.. ha 😀 Blessing!

      Great questions Natalia … if you don’t mind, may I answer this in our last video? It will be a great segue into that video’s content!

    This video was great! Medicine wheel 101! It was a great beginners platform! I definitely have a better understanding of all 7 directions now. I did not see a link/PDF for the directions? Perhaps I missed it. I look forward to sitting with this info over then next few days and letting it all sink in! Thanks so much Dakota.
