My "Medicine Wheel" message for August is "Awakening". Now I know what the literal meaning of awakening is but what is the meaning for me this month. Will it be a "Spiritual Awakening, a "Lifestyle Awakening" or some other sort of awakening that I just haven't realized yet.
Me being me (I google everything) I googled images of the word awakening and it came up with this amazing sculpture in Washington. The Awakening is a 100-foot statue of a giant embedded in the earth, struggling to free himself. The statue consists of five separate aluminum pieces buried in the ground, giving the impression of a panicked giant trying to pull himself to the surface. The left hand and right foot barely protrude, while the bent left leg and knee jut into the air. The 17-foot right arm and hand reach farther out of the ground, and the bearded face, with the mouth in mid-scream, struggles to emerge from the surrounding earth. Wish I had have known about it when I was in Washington. Has anyone out there seen it?
If you were given the word "Awakening" as your message for the month what would your interpretation be? I would love to hear what your take on the word would be, please leave me a comment with your idea. I wonder how many different interpretations we can get.
