In the South is the place of trust and innocence—the form of this wheel. It is the Shideh’s Personal Dream. This is the Shideh’s (lower self) means of daily survival and interaction with the world. The Shideh seeks freedom. That is, our spirit personality is seeking individuality within this physical form. We must break out of our patterns of doubt, fear, guilt, blame, shame, and insecurity. The Shideh wants to learn how to “free think,” to break out of the way it was “schooled” to think with learned responses. In order to do this, we must step out of the ordinary and into the bizarre and unusual. Free thinking requires time spent in solitude and reflection.
If you remember, the 4th dark arrow is Comparisons, the place where our group identity becomes our support system that verifies and validates our judgments and separation. It feels like we judge and separate from “them”, those who do not believe in the same way, or have the same values, and are not like us. But truly, this dark arrow is picked up because we judge and separate from our self, then others and life.
When we pick up the 4th light arrow, we say YES to loving our self for the sheer pleasure of doing so. Our hearts open and we connect to self, life, others, and Spirit. The gift from the Universe is the 4th Rainbow Arrow where we gain wisdom, alignment, balance and harmonic resonance through the alignment with all forms of all things. Logic, knowledge and wisdom can only be received by a flexible, open free-thinking mind whose intent is to be in balance and harmony with all the Worlds of Grandmother Earth.
