The Powers and Manifestations of the Four Directions: Part III- Center
As we began exploring the South & the West directions in Part I and the North & East directions in Part II, within the powers of the four directions is an essence, a give-away, a medicine. It is their self-expression and how they touch life with beauty. The four directions each have such a power.
In the Center
In the Center is the breath, known in other traditions as Chi, Ki, or Prana. In Cherokee, this is the Chuluaqui energy. This is the pure life force energy which makes all life and all power possible. The Center is manifested in the egg and seed of all creation.
The human aspect in the Center is our sexuality. We catalyze with the soul through sexual orgastic energy. Because this sits in the Center and is a catalyst, the balance or imbalance of our heart, body, mind, and spirit depends on us having our sexuality in balance.
The language of the Center is open heart to heart communication. We all know how key open hearted sharing is within our sexual relations.
Overlaying the Wheels
As you look at Figure 13, the Overview Paradigm Wheel, you can quickly see all of the powers of the four directions and their manifestations. Connections can be made very quickly when the wheels are layered as they are here. We encourage you to look for your own connections and insights within this overlay of wheels.
