Kia hora te marino,kia whakapapa pounamu te moana, kia tere ai te karo i mua i o koutou huarahi.
May the calm be widespread , may the sea be as smooth as the smooth surface of the greenstone, & may the rays of sunshine forever dance along your pathway.

The Medicine Wheel is not a belief system but a way for us to see life more clearly. It teaches how to steer a good heart-full road through life’s challenging and varied circumstances.
The Medicine Wheel is a circle of power and knowledge, a way of understanding life, framed in a circle.
It teaches of our connection to all things, it shows us our way back to Centre, our way home.
The Medicine Wheel is a reflection of the Universe and the individual.
As above, so below - the greater is reflected in the lesser and the lesser in the greater.
Powers of The South .
The South of the Wheel is the place of trust and innocence, the time of childhood. It is the place of emotion, energy-motion, of water and of the heart.
We learn to touch and be touched, to feel and to be moved by the beauty and magic of the world; where the child experiences the world as alive, shimmering and connected.
South is the place where time begins for us and later, in adult life, it is where our past experiences affect our present until we turn the mirror of self-reflection upon ourselves.
There is a medicine teaching which says we can look at spiritual childhood as lasting until we are about 27, just before (in astrology) Saturn returns and turns lives upside down.
The Moon is associated with the South, and the animal allies are mouse, coyote and serpent.
The element is water and it is connected to the plant kingdom.
A shamanic journey to focus on the South of the Wheel will help to heal the emotional body and the wounds of childhood.
During a Soul Retrieval journey I usually reclaim one of more soul parts that went away in the early years of life on Earth

I was lucky to participate in a weekend event with Dr Len a few years ago.
I come across his writings now and then.
Here is what he says'
I am GOD-MADE, created by Divine Love in its exact likeness, " pure in heart "
- My only purpose in life is to be myself, "pure in heart "
- My ONLY task in life is to release memories – errors – replaying problems in my subconscious from my past that block me from being myself, "pure in heart;"
- By applying the ancient HO'OPONOPONO problem solving process I can petition Divinity to restore me to my original state of "purity of heart" by releasing all memories to zero;
I am 100% RESPONSIBLE for creating the memories stored in my subconscious mind that I re-experience as problems;
I have CHOICE moment to moment to restore my original state of "purity of heart" by applying the ancient Ho'oponopono problem solving process ceaselessly, moment to moment, and
-No problems exist outside of me. My problems exist only in me as MEMORIES REPLAYING in my subconscious mind.
Our only purpose for existence is to restore our original state of "purity of heart" by freeing ourselves from memories replaying problems from the past in our subconscious mind.
"Love your enemies," a great sage said more then two thousand years ago. Our enemies are our memories replaying fear, anger, resentment, hate, attachments and judgment from the past. We can take 100% responsibility for them by applying easy to use ancient Ho'oponopono problem solving processes such as "I love you" and "Thank you."
~ Dr. Ihaleakalá Hew Len.
I was glad to remember this last night when I was kept awake all night by very noisy and unaware neighbours. Maybe that is what helped me snatch a little sleep
