Kies een probleem waar je op dit moment van je leven mee worstelt. Je kunt elke willekeurige uitdaging kiezen waarbij je de steun van de vier richtingen kunt gebruiken.
Neem een steentje of symbool dat jouw thema representeert. Maak een cirkel op de grond voor je en verdeel deze cirkel in vier kwadranten. Het ene kwadrant staat voor het Oosten, de andere kwadranten staan voor het Zuiden, Westen, Noorden. Zie onderstaande tekening als voorbeeld.
Leg je symbool voor jouw thema of uitdaging op de grond in het midden van het wiel.
We gaan jouw thema vanuit de vier windrichtingen benaderen met hun verschillende kwaliteiten. Laat je voeden door de grotere kracht van de windrichtingen op een manier die je kunt behappen, zodat je de kracht die je ontvangt kunt integreren.
Je loopt letterlijk door het wiel. We beginnen in het oosten en draaien met de klok mee (noordelijk halfrond) – van Oost, naar Zuid, naar West, naar Noord.
Choose a problem you are struggling with at this point in your life. You can choose any challenge using the support of the four directions.
Take a stone or symbol that represents your theme. Make a circle on the ground in front of you and divide this circle into four quadrants. One quadrant represents the East, and the other quadrants represent the South, West, North. See the drawing below as an example.
Place your symbol for your theme or challenge on the ground in the centre of the wheel.
We will approach your theme from the four directions with their different qualities. Be fed by the greater force of the cardinal directions in a way that you can handle so that you can integrate the force you receive.
You literally walk through the wheel. We start in the East and turn clockwise (Northern Hemisphere) – from East, to South, to West, to North.
The video is with drumming, the voice is in Dutch. See text in English below the video.
Direction of the East.
Direction that feeds us with the quality of curiosity, exploration, eye for detail, analysis and overview of the structure. Direction that helps us to view the network in which a theme is located. Direction of the East, help us to look at our challenge with your quality. Feed us in a way that we can manage, integrating your wisdom.
You are an eagle, and you rise into the sky, and you float above your theme. You see your issue, but you mainly focus on what surrounds your issue; the environment of your subject; the network around your topic.
Your gaze alternates like the eyes of the eagle, like a telescope – you zoom in on some elements in the vicinity of your theme and then zoom out again so that you can see the whole – you zoom in and you zoom out.
You perceive what is there; you’re curious; you explore, you explore the structure around your theme.
We are going to leave the East, thank her for the insights obtained, descend to earth and enter the field of the South.
Direction of the South.
Direction that feeds us with the quality of connecting, making contact and being involved. Direction of the South, help us to look at our challenge with your quality. Feed us in a way that we can manage, integrating your wisdom.
As a happy dog who likes to connect with everyone and everything and become friends, you take your theme in your hands. You welcome your issue. You want to get to know your problem better. Connect with your challenge. You can talk to it – you can say your name and explain how you view the theme. Make contact – see the issue, feel it, sniff, lick, taste. And observe, without judgment, how this moves you. Tell the problem what is going on in you now. You can talk to your theme as if it is another person. Maybe the challenge talks back and gives you useful information.
We will leave the South, thank her for the insights obtained, put the theme in the middle of the wheel again and enter the field of the West.
Direction of the West.
The Direction that feeds us with the quality of letting go and integration. Direction of the West, help us to look at our challenge with your quality. Feed us in a way that we can manage, integrating your wisdom.
You take the theme like an owl catches a mouse. You will take it all in. Like you’re going to eat it. You merge with your theme. You become one with your theme. You completely absorb it.
What does this do to you? Are you able to fully absorb your problem? Which part you do, which component you cannot take in?
You digest your issue. You keep parts of that process because that’s part of you – those are your useful nutrients. You can let go of the other part, that part that is not nutritious to you, that can disappear – just like an owl that vomits or passes through the faeces.
In the West you harvest and let go.
Which parts can you let go and which parts do you keep? Which parts can you integrate and contribute to your essence?
You just have to tune in to the Direction of the West. This Direction will help you with the process of dissecting, integrating and letting go.
We will leave the West, thank her for the insights obtained, put the theme in the middle again and enter the field of the North.
Direction of the North.
The Direction that feeds us with the quality of taking some distance. Direction of the North, help us to look at our challenge with your quality. Feed us in a way that we can manage, integrating your wisdom. Like a swan – calm and serene – you now move away from the theme. You take a distance. You are going to look at your problem from a distance. The more you swim off the theme, the less you still feel involved with the theme. You swim away from the problem until you can hardly see it anymore. The theme disappears. All involvement, all identification disappears. The swan slowly takes you into the world of the Great Soul, where unity and harmony exist. You see the material world with all its challenges and polarities, but you are no longer involved yourself. You no longer participate – you only behold it. If you look at your theme from that position – what happens to you? Let yourself be fed by the direction of the North.
We are going to leave the North, thank her for the insights obtained. You calmly bring yourself to the here and now. Take a few deep breaths and exhale completely. Stretch and slap your body for a moment.
