Higher Grounds is the evolution of what had been The Medicine Wheel. In Higher Grounds, we go deeper and higher than in The Medicine Wheel. For those of you who have completed The Medicine Wheel, you can come back in on Higher Grounds. For those of you who have not joined us, this is a perfect way to begin your journey.

Higher Grounds

When you step onto Higher Grounds,
you have stepped up and out of the old stuff of the past and
into the present that brings the future into being.

As you read on, know that the words are not just nice-sounding metaphors.
This is the real deal, folks.
Take the time to read what we will be doing in Higher Grounds.
It’s worth the read and, as a person once said,
“It costs too much not to do this work.”

This is very powerful work that brings actual results lasting a lifetime and beyond.

The events in your life from birth and past lives can cause the weave of your original energetic cloth to become tangled. When that happens, the way you are in the world can become a construct of what others have given you to build yourself. By shedding all the tired old patterns, however comfortable, familiar and “safe” they might seem to be, you become free to be Your Primal Essence, A Vessel of Light.

Quite often, as you travel through Life, healing your past as you go along, you find that there are many strands woven together. It can be confusing to try to sort them all out. Higher Grounds guides you so that you can unravel those strands that were never your own as well as those you have created from your energetic body and to give what is not back with love, gratitude, and compassion to those who gave those teachings to you.

Once clear of what once was, you can now go fully into the present because you are no longer carrying the energetic weight of the past. When you have cleared away the wisps of old teachings at the Unknown, the Unseen, and the Unspoken, yet felt, you can live your Life as it is meant to be. Then you are free to feel the Strength that has always been within you, clear and clean, free to make conscious choices.. You are at Peace within.

It may be that you have already done much to clear yourself of
the old baggage that you had been carrying.
So how can Higher Grounds help you?

It is on Higher Grounds that you can go deeper and higher than you have already gone. A person may feel that he/she has healed enough to move on. Through sacred ceremonies and work, that person finds wisps, unseen, unknown, unspoken, buried deep within himself or herself. By bringing those wisps up into The Light, that person discovers healing has happened. Often then, a person will say, “I didn’t consciously know that was there. I didn’t know that vague feeling underneath everything else was the very thing that had to be healed/released so I could go higher.” That is why we know that healing happens through this ancient wisdom brought into everyday life through non-ordinary sacred ways, thus, merging the non-ordinary into the ordinary. It could be something as simple as a change of thought, a choice to engage Life in a different way, paying more attention to that gut ping that has no thought or even logical sense to it rather than the chatter of the human.
