Attention New Kindred Spirit Members and any Kindred Spirit who has not yet presented your Self Manifestation Wheel:
As Kindred Spirits, we have the honor of supporting each of you on this new part of your Journey of Heart. We are no longer apprentices in the Mystery School, and we all stand with you, equidistant from the center of our Circle. Your first gathering with us in our KS Circle is a unique opportunity for you to present yourself as a Shaman Woman or Man of Power by introducing yourself to us through your Self Manifestation Wheel. All of the information you need about this is available in your “Kindred Spirits Manual.” As you begin your work on this Wheel now, stalking and circling in order to narrow your focus on the truth of who you are now as a Shaman in the world and in our beautiful Circle, know that we are already holding you, sending you energy and love. Your Wheel is your pronouncement of you, an incredible way for all of us to meet you as you stand today balanced in your own Wheel, a fully manifested being. Create your Self-Manifestation fetishes now to help you clarify and energize the essence of your journey on this Path of Heart!
Please use a 8.5" x 11" Write-On transparency film to create your manifestation wheel. We will use an overhead projector so that everyone will be able see your beautiful Wheel as you present it, as we share our wheels with each other.
If you need a Write-On Transparency, please contact Kahndi, email@example.com and she will mail one to you for the price of the postage.
Please check with your Lodge Chief to see if you need anything specific for your Lodge work and altars. We look forward to our time together and to working in such an intimate group at this very magical place.
