Medicine Wheel Part 4 – Getting Into The Spirit

It’s been a while since I’ve written about my journey to keep my medicine wheel turning. But my spirit is happy today and I can feel positivity (is that a word?) all around me – even in the math class where I am teaching this morning.


It’s incredibly hard to move forward in my life without building on my character and changing the bad habits I have into good and healthy habits. In order to work on myself I have to work, and work is hard. The medicine wheel is a great way to look at myself and see where I am and where I need to go. It’s in the shape of a wheel for a number of reasons. It shows motion. “A body at rest tends to at rest. A body in motion tends to stay in motion.” – Newton’s Law of Motion. In my life, motion means I’m going to lose weight and not my mind. Another thing about a wheel is that if part is missing it won’t roll and if it does it rolls then bangs or thumps. It can be a very bumpy ride.

Right now, my wheel needs a bit more work on my Spirit.  This is the Visionary in the wheel. I need to see inside and outside and use the wisdom I have been developing to carry through the growth I seek. I am in peril of losing my passion. Passion is fire and I need to have fire in my spirit. Fire burns doubt and fat. Yes, I’m trying really hard to continue relating the medicine Wheel with my need to lose weight and be healthy. It will be wholistic and/or holistic! Go ahead, look them up and decide for yourself.

OK, I’m working on it. Thanks for listening. ;D Diane
