Universal Medicine Power
For understanding the theory of medicine in the Amerindian way, we must redefine (medicine.) The medicine referred to in this text is anything, which brings you strength, understanding and personal power. This medicine is anything that improves one’s connection with all Our Relations and the Great Mystery. It involves the healing of mind, body and spirit. Amerindian medicine encompasses a (way of life,) because it involves "walking the path" in perfect harmony with the Universe.
The Medicine Wheel represents life, afterlife, rebirth and the honoring of each step along the way. The Good Red Road is where we learn the lessons of physical life, or of being human. This road runs South to North in the circle of the Medicine Wheel.
Great Spirit is within all. If an individual obeys Crow’s perfect laws as given by the Creator and Maker, then at death he or she dies a Good Medicine death – going on to the next incarnation with a clear memory of his or her past.
After the graduation experience of death, one enters the Blue Road or Black Road that is the world of the grandfathers and grandmothers. In spirit, one will continue to learn by counseling those remaining on the Good Red Road. The Blue Road of Spirit runs East to West in the circle of the Medicine Wheel.
The Great Mystery is a realm where all things exist, not yet in form, including the Great Spirit. Eagle medicine is the power of the Great Spirit, the connection to the Divine. Eagle has the ability to live in the realm of spirit, and yet remain connected and balanced within the realm of Earth. From the heights of the clouds, Eagle is close to the heavens where the Great Spirit dwells.
In learning to call on the medicine of any person, creature or natural force, one must maintain an attitude of reverence and be willing to accept assistance. (As all things in the universe have the same building block the – "Atom" – it is relatively safe to say that we all communicate through the common denominator of each atom, which is the creative force of Great Spirit.) This is a kind of power that comes from the idea of unity, and of each being having within itself a part of all other beings. (It is the Law of Oneness)
These teachings have been handed down from the elders of the Aztec, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Choctaw, Iroquois, Lakota, Maya, Seneca and Yaqui traditions. Due to the diverse teachings of these traditions, we have only scratched the surface of a deep understanding that is possible with this system of divination. We hope to open a new doorway of understanding for those who seek the Oneness of all Life.
