    What Holisticshop staff think

    "Like with others in this range of incense, the Eagle had a very low amount of smoke and it can take a little while of the scent to fully come through, however once it does it is very noticeable. It was hard to distinguish particular fragrances however I found it to be quite earthy in a very good sense. Most of all it's usually the effect of the incense rather than the aroma that I notice; particularly with this range.

    For instance, I lit this incense one evening, I felt like I had a million tasks to complete that wouldn't get done, so needless to say I was multitasking! After about 20 minutes (and not realizing it at first), I found I started to look at the big picture, I gained some introspection and I put down whatever I was doing. The realization; not so much that I needed some time to relax, but the awareness that we all need some time for ourselves - and that is what the symbol of the Eagle aims to represent.

    It is the call for recognition and for not becoming too involved in things that may not be that important. My example of course was on a small scale, but in a bigger sense the Eagle looks down on life and evaluates it; it represents courage and the ability to confront our fears into becoming happier people. In my instance, although I felt like I had a lot to do I realized it all didn't actually necessarily have to be done that evening, and I wasn't helping myself by trying to do it all at once.

    You may like this incense if you prefer subtle scents, but most of all if you wish to bring some of the Eagle spirit energy into your life to help gain some introspection and to help rise above your current position or problems."

    Dictionary Terms Explained

    Eagle - Spiritual recognition
    The eagle is held sacred by many traditions, but especially so in the Native American tradition. The eagle flies high, symbolically close to spirit, and its cry is like a high-pitched screech, calling to spirit for recognition. The eagle teaches us to live our lives on earth while remaining connected to the spirit realms. It teaches us to follow our true path - that which is really meant to be happening in our life for the greater good. So in this way the eagle is connected to courage - the ability to follow what is right, and to confront our fears, as that is how we change to become better and happier people. Eagle can see far from his high-flying position, so symbolically relates to seeing the bigger picture, not getting involved in things that aren't important.

    Medicine Wheel - Wheel of life
    The medicine wheel is an all encompassing system of life common to most Native American traditions. It has four directions: the East, South, West and the North. Here is one simple interpretation of what each direction represents:

  • East: yellow / mental / air / birth / eagle
  • South: white / emotional / water / childhood / coyote
  • West: black / physical / earth / adulthood / bear
  • North: red / spiritual / fire / elder / buffalo

    Whole books have been written about the medicine wheel and what each direction represents and the exact colours and positions of the various elements can vary between tribes and teachers but this does not matter too much (as long as you stick with the system you become familiar with) as the basic message is that to live to your highest potential and happiness you must put all four aspects into balance. This is a system (like the Kaballah is a system) that can be studied and applied to daily living. The medicine wheel as a symbol is a symbol of balance and reconciliation with yourself. To wear or have around you this symbol states your intention to live in balance and manifest the joy and peace this balance will bring. The four colours also represent the Asian people / white people / black people / and the native people so in this way the medicine wheel is also a symbol of world peace as well as inner peace.
