FAQ's | Intro | East | South | West | North | Center

DIRECTION: SOUTH                           
The direction of the South is the Path of the Inner Child - to access the part of ourselves that uses the faith, trust and innocence that we had as children to make our way through life. From the South we are able to see things in greater detail and begin to understand our own individual natures and the nature of all of our relationships. It is here that we realize that we were born innocent and that our reactions to external events have blocked us from the joy of our Inner Child. The South is where we heal our heart - with the knowing of our true Self.

The quality embraced by the South is trust and innocence. It is enjoying the experience of discovery, finding joy in new knowledge and learning how to let go of fears and false values and self-sabotaging beliefs which are conflicting with our deepest heart's desires. It is here where we heal the notions that we have taken to our hearts which no longer serve us and heal our broken heartedness.

The totem of the South is the Mouse and quite often the Coyote. Mouse is so small and defenseless against the rest of the world that he must rely on trust and instinct to live. Much larger forces are at work in the world, and Mouse understands how humble a creature he is in relation to all this. Coyote is the trickster - he shatters illusions with his hall of mirrors and laughs at himself. His lessons may sometimes be harsh, but they do bring us knowledge of ourselves. This teaches us to examine our own beliefs more closely and the thoughts and feelings that helped shape them, so we can reframe them.

The element of the South is Fire. Fire is radiant energy and signifies the torch that we carry in our heart. Fire contains great powers of cleansing and shape-shifting.

The color of the South is red - the color of life force (blood), heart, health and vitality.

The Kingdom associated with the South is the Plant Kingdom. To align yourself with the healing properties of the South - walk amongst this kingdom and work with flower essences. Touch the plants, touch the trees - share your energy with them, and they will share their energy and knowledge with you.

The time period of the South is the past. Emotions that we are holding on to, that are blocking us, are from the past. This is where we need to heal to restore our heart connection to the center of our being and to our head. We do this by understanding our own personal boundaries and how these boundaries are what truly give us the freedom to be who we are. We are fire...and fire must be contained in order to be creative and not destructive.

Through the South we become as children - we re-visit and make sense of our past, and we heal in present time through the power of love, compassion and forgiveness.
