Daily Angel Oracle Card: Lynx, from the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams, David Carson, artwork by Angela Werneke
You know the secrets
So very well,
The Dreamtime and the magic,
But you’ll never tell.
May I learn to hold my tongue,
Observe like the Sphinx
Powerful, yet silent,
The medicine of Lynx”
“It is said that if you want to find out a secret, ask Lynx medicine. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get the silent Lynx to speak. To be confronted by the powerful medicine of Lynx signifies that you do not know something about yourself or others.
Lynx is the keeper of the secrets of lost magical systems and occult knowledge. Lynx has the ability to move through time and space, and to go into the Great Silence for unraveling any mystery. Lynx is not the guardian of secrets, but the knower of secrets. The problem lies in getting Lynx to instruct you. He or she would rather be off chasing a bird or kicking sand in your face than running circles around you.
Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance. If this medicine is strong in you, you will get mental pictures concerning other people and the exact things they have hidden, either from themselves or from others. You will see their fears, their lies, and their self-deceptions. You will also know where they have hidden the treasure, if there is any. You never speak of these revelations – you simply know.
The only way you can coax information about yourself out of a Lynx medicine person (in case you have forgotten where you hid the treasure) is to respect the practices of his or her tradition. If you go to a Gypsy with Lynx medicine, you must show your respect by paying with Money after the reading. If you go to a Choctaw medicine person, he or she will reach into your midsection, or use other traditional methods to help you. A blanket or tobacco should be given in exchange for the medicine he or she has performed for you. This maxim is known as the law of the Lynx people, and is practiced by Native American, Gypsy, Sufi, and Egyptian cultures, among others.
If you have pulled the Lynx card, you can be sure that “secrets” are afloat. If this is your personal medicine, you should listen to your higher self. Be still and pay attention to the revelations you receive either in the form of mental pictures or through a high singing voice in your inner ear. Perhaps you will receive information in the form of omens. You can be sure that Mother Earth is signalling to you in some manner.
Some medicine people believe that the Sphinx of ancient Egypt was not a Lion but a Lynx. This Lynx does not say much. With an enigmatic smile, the great cat watches over the sand of forever.”*

Lynx possesses the gifts of a mentalist, one who can read the thoughts and minds of others. It may seem that it comes through a study of body language, or an observation of behaviour or habits or cues. But this goes much deeper. It is a feeling into another, an immediate assessment of their energy; their vibration and their intentions, good or bad. If red flags present themselves, take notice, for this is a gift and you are being warned. Take all into consideration when you get that feeling that someone cannot or should not be trusted; or on the flip side, if they feel better than the cover of their book may suggest, trust your instinct.
Be extra observant and be sure to listen carefully; heed your intuition. You have been given super powers by the medicine of Lynx. To see deeply into the ego driven personality of another and straight into their Soul.
Use it wisely.
