In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, we speak about “powers” of the four directions. Within in each of the directions, there is a power …. an essence, a give-away, a “medicine.” It is their self expression of how they touch life with beauty.
In the East is the power of illumination and enlightenment. To illuminate our lives is to make clear, to brighten up with light, our instructions from the creatrix, creator. This gives us the enlightenment and the spiritual insight we seek. When we allow our spirits to expand, we can catch those insights which illuminate our life.
Compound the illuminations, and we can achieve enlightenment.
The human aspect which corresponds to the East is the spirit. Spirit is the “fire” within us that directs the mind. The mind receives our determination to materialize a body in this dimension. Spirit knows in “reality” what we have come here for, what our spiritual vision is. Step into the space of creating an original piece of artwork, and you will experience the movement of spirit through the essence of creativity.
