The South Element: Water

In the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the sacred four elements are a part of Grandmother Earth and are a natural component of our world and ourselves. The elements can be regarded from the perspective of a “medicine wheel”. That is to say a circle of viewing of each of the four directions: South, West, North, East and the Center.

When we view the elements from each of these directions, we can better understand through not just our mind but our physical bodies how each of the elements feel, and how these elements combine with other energies and powers of the four directions.

In the South, the element is water.

Think of the many different ways that water appears on this planet. It can be raging rapids or a small quiet brook. It can appear as a stagnant pond or a great ocean.

Contemplate the many forms in which you experience waters and know that this is South energy. All south energies are fluid or have fluidity as part of their nature.
