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

DIRECTION: WEST                          
The direction of the West represents transformation and going into the unknown void of our creative abilities. Here is what we find that we need to change to make progress in our lives. This is the emphasis of the West - release and transition.

The direction of the East is our beginning of knowing who the "self" is. The more healing we have done in the South, the easier it will be for us to release what does not serve us. The direction of the West deepens this knowledge through dreams and visions of the future and brings about deep personal transformation.

The quality embraced by the West is that of courage and transformation. Here we begin to understand cause and effect - our life patterns, what our lessons have been, and what we need to let go of to continue our learning.

The totem of the West is the Bear. Bear brings us strength and connection to Mother Earth, and represents the quality of introspection. Bear seeks truth. The power of the Bear is the power of knowing, the power that allows one to enter dreamtime and walk the path of questing for answers - the internal path. Whale is also a watery totem of the West. Envision Jonah in the belly of the whale, not knowing exactly how it will all turn out and you will capture the true essence of the West.

The element of the West is water. This refers not necessarily so much to the physical quality of water, or even its ability to cleanse, but to the essence of water - that it flows through life. Here we are asked to allow our emotions to flow freely and to gain insight on pure feeling and how to allow it to process. Here we also learn how to connect our emotions to balance the intellect to better inform our belief system.

The color of the West is Black. Not the black of "nothingness", but the black of "all things". It is the color of mystery and of the unconscious. It represents the field of all possibility as it pertains to our ability to create the life that we desire.

The Kingdom associated with the West is the Mineral Kingdom. This is the kingdom that holds and controls energy. It holds knowledge of our past and our future. Through the mineral kingdom we heal ourselves by finding our connection with both the past and the future.

The time period of the West is the future. We create our future in many ways - by the decisions we have made and actions we have taken in the past, by how we interact in the present, and by what we are destined to do with those future energies.

The season of the West is Autumn - a time of gentle change brought about through turning inward. Use the time of the West wisely to listen to what your body is trying to communicate to you through your feelings. Your feelings are feedback from your thoughts. Look at how your current actions and goals are affecting your future. What will you create?
