Notice that the colors are in different directions on the wheel. Is there a correct placement of the colors on the wheel and what do they mean? Is there such a things as “ The right or wrong Medicine Wheel?” One internet author wrote:
The Animal Spirit; the animal Soul, is that part of a person that is deeply connected to the earth . It is a definitive energy in the human energy system and is the cauldron which provides the fire to transform the body and emotions into a spiritual God being. The genetics are complicated.
