The number 4 is a very powerful number. Earth, Air, Fire, Water. North, East , South, West. It is a completion #. A number of Luck and good fortune. A number that connect the peoples of  world.

This number, sometimes showing up in the form of “13”, has been prominent in my life for teh last 4 months. The 4th item, 4th person, 4th idea, 4th whatever is where I gain clarity and growth. I am REALLY looking forward to class tonight. And this time I will NOT hurt my wrist!

In Capoeira we do a circle called the “Roda”. This circle must maintain it’s integrity for the people playing the “game” of capoeira in the center. The people who make up the circle must maintain their positive and strong energy or the integrity and power of the circle are broken.

This concept is the same concept talked about in this DAily OM. It’s teh basic element of life, community and societal health.

Blessings on your day….

The Power Of The Circle

There are many reasons for why a gathering of people in a circle is powerful. A circle is a shape that is found repeatedly throughout the natural world, and it is a symbol of perfection. We recreate this perfect shape when we join others to form a circle. Being in a circle allows us experience each other as equals. Each person is the same distance apart from the next participant, and no one is seated higher than or stands apart from others in a circle. From tribal circles to the mythical round table of King Arthur, the circle has been the shape adopted by gatherings throughout history.

The circle is acknowledged as an archetype of wholeness and integration, with the center of a circle universally understood to symbolize Spirit – the Source. When a group of people come together in a circle, they are united. This unity becomes even more powerful when each person reaches out to touch a neighbor and clasps hands. This physical connection unites thought and action, mind and body, and spirit and form in a circle. Because a circle has no beginning and no end, the agreement to connect in a circle allows energy to circulate from one person to the next, rather than being dissipated into the environment.

Like a candle used to light another candle, the connection with spirit that results when one person joins hands with another is greater than if each person were to stand alone. People who take part in a circle find that their power increases exponentially while with the group. Like a drop of water rippling on the surface of a pond, the waves of energy produced in a circle radiate outward in circular motion. While one person may act like a single beacon that emanates light, a circle of people is like a satellite dish that sends out energy. There is power in numbers, and when the commitment is made by many to face one another, clasp hands, and focus on one intention, their circle emanates ripples of energy that can change the world.
