A medicine wheel is a physical manifestation of spiritual energy. This is the basic outline to a Medicine Wheel. I will be using a traveling wheel. Although I have a nice sized back yard, I also have some very nosy neighbors...not that I care...but why ask for agitation if you can avoid. I like the idea of a traveling medicine wheel, one that can anywhere with me. Traveling medicine wheels are used to help with meditation, prayer, or focusing; to open yourself up to a power spot; healing; to connect with nature; to contact the spirits of an area you feel an infinity for; to communicate with spirit. The following is what a traveling medicine wheel would look like. It only takes about five minutes to set up. The one below is not mine; the battery is dead in our camera, but it does give you an idea.
The first stone on the wheel, the center stone, which is place on the wheel with prayer and song, represents the Creator; it stands alone and it is from this center that the energy that creates the rest of the wheel radiates outward. The seven stones that circle around the creator represent the foundation of all life. The stand for the Father Sun, Mother Earth, Grandmother Moon, Fire (Thunderbird), Earth (Turtle), Air (Butterfly), and Water (Frog). There is no particular totem or mineral for this position. The Creator is all things so it actually doesn't even have to be a stone that is placed there.
The Creator Stone symbolizes our Creator as being the center of our lives. It teaches us about our own ability to create, about our faith, and about our own sacredness.
