Medicine Wheel Songs

Medicine Wheel by Kate Wolf


When the morning breaks and the sunlight warms my soul
In the East the Eagle flies, and the Red Tail proudly soars
I'm on my way~ to the place of the spirit one
Grandfather hear me now, I am on fire
Let the Sundance guide my feet to your desire
Give me visions for my eyes
And words like gold that shimmer in the sun
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah

When the sun goes down and it grows too dark to see
I look within to the Shaman's mysteries
I'm on my way~ to die and live again
Grandmother Earth I cry, give me rest
I take my place with the woman in the West
Show me the Raven and the Bear
The way of herbs and the black obsidian
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah

Turn toward the South, like the water I will run
In innocence and trust the moonchild's song is sung
I'm on my way~ to the place of the sacred plants
My emotions and my will at their command
Where the Turtle's voice is heard upon the land
Where the wise Coyote prowls
The Rattlesnake will call me to the dance
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah

In the deepest night when the stars watch over me
Old Woman of the North my mind seeks clarity
I'm on my way~ to the place of the Northern winds
Let the thunder and the lightning carry me
Lay my thoughts to rest and send me into sleep
With the Hawk and the Buffalo
My dreams white crystal magic medicine
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah, hyi-ah
Hyi-ah, hyi-ah
