Indigenous Teachings- Four Sacred Medicines­čî┐ 4/5

The sacred medicine cedar can be practiced in so many ways; however, indigenous peoples practice cedar for its restorative ability and to purify physical spaces including the mind, body, spirit, and/or home.

Ways the indigenous peoples practice cedar: Cedar baths to relieve sore muscles and joints, adding cedar to a fire to bless yourself and call attention to the spirit world and to let it be known that there is an offering being made.

For its protective qualities, cedar is often placed at entrance ways to homes and on the ground around the perimeter of a sweat lodge as cedar ensures that bad energies are not able to enter. #Indigenous #IndigenousTeachings
