Animal Wisdom For Your Day! (Whatever Day You Come Upon It!)

Tricolored Heron

I felt called to pull one of the Native American Medicine Cards for us all (Jamie Sams and David Carson) and the card that fell out is Blue Heron.

Here is the message…

Self-Reflection:  Heron medicine is the power of knowing the self by discovering its gifts and facing its challenges. It is the ability to accept all feelings and opinions without denying any emotion or thought.  Heron flies over those who are unaware of who they are and where they belong in the world. Gently dropping a blue feather to them, Heron asks that they follow their intuition and begin the empowering journey of self-realization.”  

And another part of the message… “The magnificence of your human spirit lies waiting for the joy of discovery, if you are courageous enough to follow the Water bird throughout the journey.  Heron reminds you that every traveler on life’s journey is a messenger, and that every destination is the beginning of a new life cycle on the Medicine Wheel.”

I love the message Blue Heron brings!  It is so fitting for this period we are in with our evolution!  My Spirit Guides keep telling me we are in the process of letting go of the old “stories” of who we are, so that we can release the limitations they impose on the expressions of our True Nature. An exciting time for sure, though I know it can also feel very confusing! If you feel like you could use some quick intuitive guidance, I’ve added a new 15 minute empowerment reading option.

Sending much love to you all!

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Embracing Shadows

My shadows hold no fear for me now.  I embrace the shades within me, as I embrace that which is visible.  I love and I am free.

My shadows hold no fear for me now. I embrace the shades within me, as I embrace that which is visible. I love and I am free.

I worked with this image while listening to the music by Gabriel Masterson on his album Mother Earth Rising.  The haunting and beautiful Native American flute music created in Sedona feels so in sync with the energy of this image.  Both speak to me of the haunting beauty of the shadows within the scope of the light.  When I connect with this image, I am reminded that my emotions often reflect a distorted image of what is.  Remembering that there are aspects of myself and what I perceive that are easily visible and also parts that are hidden invite me to be more gentle with myself and those around me.  Remembering there is nothing to fear in the shadows makes it easier to embrace them. 

How to Work with the Image

  1. Take a moment to center yourself.  Close your eyes and breathe in and out slowly three times.  Let your exhale be longer than your inhale.
  2. Open your eyes and focus on the image.  Ask your Spiritual Support Team to help you come into harmonic resonance with the image and to receive the amount of energy from the essence of the place for your highest and best good.
  3. Use your imagination to put yourself in the photo.  Use all your senses to interact with what is shown.  What do you feel, see, hear, smell, taste and touch as you connect?
  4. Ask for Divine guidance on how you can incorporate the gifts from this essence into your own life and situation.  Allow yourself to feel the love and support flowing to you and through you from the Earth and the Divine.
  5. Repeat the affirmation (see caption) as you breathe in and out slowly.
  6. Be open to any additional thoughts, sounds, smells, or images that come to you as you are working with the photo.  Consider these as messages to support you on your path.  Ask what these impressions mean to you.  What do they make you think or feel?
  7. Continue to recall the image throughout the day when you wish to bring in the energy it provides.
  8. Express your gratitude for the gifts given to you through the experience. 

With much love to all!

Grow Your Gifts Meditation – Self-Reflection

I see and love every part of me.  I am authentically me in all that I think, say and do.

I see and love every part of me. I express my true self in all that I do.

I share this today to provide us all with support as we continue to become more whole.  I know many of my clients (and me too!) are having a lot of intense dreaming right now.  Sometimes what is going on at the subconscious level is difficult to connect with.  This meditation will support you in seeing your whole self more clearly.  As we look with love and clarity, we can accept all of who we are without judgment.  Heron medicine is excellent for this as is the beautiful clear water and blue sky.  Below are some simple instructions to support you in your work with this image.
