The Medicine Wheel of Wisdom

medicine-wheel-wisdomLujan, in your book Whisperings of the Dragon you write about the medicine wheel of wisdom. You mention three energetic toxicities and refer to them as the poison dragon, the white tiger, and the black widow. I have also heard you speak many times about other energetic truths, such as leaking one’s sexual energy or how our heart’s energy can spin in the opposite direction from when we are open and truthful.

You speak of how the poison dragon is deceitful. I have been wondering about this a great deal since learning from you that our strength can come from being able to speak our heart’s voice. I can feel much wasted energy just trying to get to that voice, and speaking my heart often creates feelings so intense in others that I feel I have angered them. I can see how this anger reverberates through interaction after interaction, causing more and more confusion.

Is it possible to reveal the poison dragon in another without endangering ourselves?

Does simply having integrity in our lives and being able to speak one’s heart’s voice lead to sealing one’s energy where it belongs?

Much love,
Gwendolyn

As I’ve mentioned in Whisperings of the Dragon, in line with this subject, it is of great importance to know when to speak when you realize something and when not to speak when that insight can perpetuate harmful eddies within the human edifice.

This is a very important subject. Upon one’s life path one appropriates indefinable items that enter one’s inner silence through the mere act of observing the phenomena without interfering with it, in terms of an experience.

There is always a risk when one opens up to another and the dilemma that one is faced with in these situations is that if you choose to speak your heart’s truth, in terms of your knowing, you must have the equal amount of power to back up what you are saying so as to be in harmonious alignment with what may manifest from the person’s personality. Whether they be a white tiger, a black widow, or a poison dragon, if power requires you to speak, know that you must follow through. Otherwise you will end up with more than a mess.

If you say something and power requires you not to follow through you must observe that mess manifesting around you. In doing so you will incrementally absorb the most pertinent amount of information required to give the necessary distance for that observation to occur.

The web of life is extremely complex at the moment. Edifices within the social realm rotate in endless eddies. For the wise this is an interesting situation, which in Chinese terms is known as the curse. In the uninitiated the curse of being born in interesting times may be devastating. So it is always pertinent to tread carefully, for you may not be welcome and find yourself in very dangerous situations by being available when you should be inaccessible, through your heartfelt availability.

In essence everything I have said to answer your questions cannot truly bear relevance to what you really need to do within the sphere of your personal power. Within your own moments of unfolding be aware that power will provide you with a key but remember this is as fleeting as a glance that was never seen and as light as a feather that is difficult to touch.

For your destiny unravels you as life unfolds in front of you.

love, Lujan

  1. Truth

  2. Thank you so much for taking my questions. I’ve recently found myself in a gauntlet of sorts where almost everyone is on one side or the other of a social issue. I don’t want to leave this situation because there are things within it that I enjoy, where I find lots of laughter and fun. At the same time, I want to break down the social issue so that we can all move forward. I guess I’m trying to get people to see their anchors, so to speak.

    I often feel excluded on a basis about which I can do nothing. Those that exclude me are the very ones who are talking about having been excluded. I can feel angry energy brewing if I simply get close to the subject. I once touched it anyway, and the explosion of anger blew out some electrical appliances in the room. It was a very painful experience for all of us.

    Now I understand that I simply didn’t have the power to back up my voice about what I was observing. At this point, I’d rather be sad about it all than cause the chaotic anger to be directed at me.

    Thank for your continued assistance in understanding the deeper roots of human interactions.

  3. It’s an interesting topic. Since some months I observe on all sides a very strong accumulation of social dramas, apart from destructive political circumstances. It seems, as if the human mind (psyche)is under a massive metaphysical attack.

  4. Thank you for posing this question and Lujan for addressing it. It is invaluable to me. I need to learn to let go more and more. My speech often reflects my reactions rather than my heart. Understanding that I need power to back up my speech makes me see that I do not need to speak on most of my words because they are not from my heart or my power.

  5. This is such an important subject.
    knowing when to speak, and knowing when not to speak is truly a delicate snowflake.
    i find that holding back a moment, taking the time to take a breath, without making people wait, but without rushing myself allows me to feel weather i should speak my truth or not.It allows absorbtion of the situation to enter. Seeing weather my personal power allows me to offer my knowing.
    When its right – It feels like a subtle tap on my being and a whisper with no words, saying “go for it you have the walk to back up the talk”

    Sometimes it slips out prematurely and by the time i relise i should of kept it to myself its too late and angry defending, weak spot findings and attention redirection occurs, all to keep truth away.

    It does breed furtile ground to let knowing seep into the attempted wounds- but best to tread lightly and avoid these situations as you may not get a second chance in another situation.

  6. Thank you Sugrue for bringing this topic up. Your situation and sharing has helped me as well. I hope that you can find the understand and seeing in these situations. This is what we all need and giving light and truth to a situation either by observing or talking feels very real and beautiful.
    Much love
