Interpreting the Native American Medicine Wheel

native american medicine wheelThe Native American medicine wheel is a universal symbol used in many native tribes. Its meaning is versatile, depending on the tribe and personal journey.

The circle itself represents the circle of life from birth to childhood and adulthood onto old age. The colors of the wheel are black, white, red and yellow; symbolizing the races of humanity.

The wheel is sacred and is used in ceremonies and for working with any type of magic. It can also be used as a guide for inner workings, to help us evolve and grow in our spirit. It marks a power space and is usually constructed in an area where positive energies are plentiful. Many attribute the circle in dream catchers and it is portrayed in much Native American art.
