Native American

Step 5: We admitted to the Great Spirit, to ourselves and to another person the things we thought were wrong about ourselves.

Principle: Integrity

This step is about disclosing our secrets. When we reveal our secrets to another human being and to the Creator, the heaviness is lifted and we begin to see with our hearts, just as the eagle sees Love in everything. This step deepens our relationship with the Great Spirit.

Text or Verse

Facing South, pray faintly on the wind:

Great Spirit, take my secrets on the four winds and
purify them that I may use them in a good way.

Practice

Pick the person to do this step carefully.
It should be the Medicine person, mentor or sponsor you selected in the 3rd step.
Smudge with sage, cedar or sweet grass and face South during the process.
Share your revelations once you have completed the step.
Your spirit will become lighter and you will sense your healing and wholeness.
