many years ago i was honoured to receive my Spirit Name and an Eagle Feather. I have participated in many traditional ceremonies and the one I found most effective for my personal well being was the Healing Circle. A traditional way for Native American people to solve problems.
The symbolism of the circle, with no beginning and with nobody in a position of prominence, serves to encourage people to speak freely and honestly about things that are on their minds.
It is a very effective way to remove barriers and to allow people to express themselves with complete freedom, allowing everyone to get any problems off their chests.
Very often, a simple chance to have a voice, and to have a problem heard in a sympathetic and supportive environment, is all that a person requires for healing.
