Transcript: My Medicine Wheel Project Tyler “Medicine Wheel Framework.” Ryerson University, The Four Elements The Four Elements Fourleaflover. “Four Elements New Stock Illustration.” IStock, Earth The element earth can represent a connection with nature or the sense of being grounded. How this element connects to me is that I feel grounded when I am out in nature. Earth “The Four Elements.” Native Symbols, Fire Fire can symbolize re-generation. The element fire can indicate a strong spiritual focus in your life. How this element connects to me is by giving me the ability to focus on my work. Fire “The Four Elements.” Native Symbols, Air/Wind Air traditionally relates to the mind, the intellect and quickness of thought. Air relates to the spirit world. I feel that wind helps me improve my mind and how I feel by blowing away negative thoughts. Air/Wind “The Four Elements.” Native Symbols, Water Emotions are traditionally connected to the element of water. Life would not exist without water. I feel connect to water by letting my emotions flow like water. Water “The Four Elements.” Native Symbols, The Four Seasons The Four Seasons “Fun Facts for Kids on Animals, Earth, History and More!” DK Find Out!, Spring The season of spring is a time of new vegetation and growth. Flowers bloom. Animals come out of hibernation and babies are born in spring. I connect to the season of spring because it represents an opportunity to grow and start over. spring Summer The longer days in summer bring more sunlight that give strength to plants and animals. I connect to summer because it the season where I am the most active. summer Fall This is when plants are most mature because they have had the previous two seasons to strengthen and grow. I connect to fall because it represents my growth slowing down. fall Winter All the green and flowers are gone. The trees drop their leaves and the animals go back into hibernation. I connect to winter because I get to spend time around family. winter The four bodies What I have learned about the four bodies is that they can be used to reflect the different aspects of yourself. The Four Bodies “Medicine Wheel Framework.” Ryerson University, Physical I use the Physical body to connect with myself is by listening to what my body tells me because if something is off it lets me know. Physical Mental How I use the mental body to connect with myself, is by knowing when I need to take brakes and to reset myself. Mental Emotional I use the emotional body to connect with myself by acknowledging my feelings and emotions. Allowing myself to express how I feel. Emotional spiritual I am still trying connect to my spiritual body and learn what I need. Spiritual Medicine Wheel Comparison Medicine Wheel Comparison There are many different types of medicine wheels. You can use the different medicine wheels to not only reflect on yourself but also how you as an individual reflect on family, neighborhood, and community. My preferred medicine wheel is the one that is split into four quadrants that represent spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional. Novel Study Connection How the novel As Long as the River Flows connects to this project is that they both share the same cultural connection. Novel Study Connection Illustrated by Heather D. Holmlund Personal Medicine Wheel Connection this medicine wheel connects to my vision by showing me how to build support and connect with myself. This medicine wheel also allows me to represent how I interact with people in the community by allowing me to connect with myself helps you better understand how to connect to other people. Personal Medicine Wheel Connection Conclusion The purpose of medicine wheels in a community is to give an individual a way to reflect on themselves and find balance between their four bodies.
