Eagle ~ Spirit: “Trust in your higher self.”

“When you live your life according to Spiritual Law, Spirit’s intent expresses through your personality easily and fluidly. Your light will shine if you only let it, and all that you want will come to you without ever needing to know how. To follow your spiritual path, your only job is to listen to and then heed Spirit’s directives, and your life will flow quite easily.

Your conscious mind is meant to be the receiver and transmitter of these urgings, translating the information sent from Spirit through pure awareness into the physical realm and decipherable communication. Since your ego’s willfulness can interfere and misdirect, you must pay close attention to discern which is which. Know that your higher self will only give you straightforward, positive, and encouraging support, whereas the ego’s voice will tend to be negative and discouraging. Let this ageless wisdom that is your spiritual birthright come through so that you may shine with light and love upon yourself, others and the world around you!

Additional associations of this card: Vision; Courage; Universality; Masculinity.”*

– Stephen D Farmer

Your Soul is calling you, can you hear it? Are you listening? Movies and TV have made it seem that in order to communicate with Spirit, you must have the clouds part, lightening bolts strike or God come down from the Heaven’s and stand before you. This would be awesome, but I have noticed that Spirit is so much more subtle than that in my own life. I find myself thinking these recurring thoughts all of a sudden as if out of nowhere. They make sense, yet are completely out of context, having nothing to do with what I happen to be thinking or doing at the time. I will often notice them several times a day, and often over several days… although I am getting better at it now! This is where my messages from Spirit come from… thoughts in my own head, in my own voice, but ones that just don’t quite fit with the others. Often they are creative ideas that require me to go and make or do something. They may urge me to look something up or contact a certain person. They may be a confirmation on something I was previously wondering about… an answer that I seem to doubt or second guess until I see the “proof”… even though they always come true!

It’s ego that gets in the way… that and distraction of course! It’s a little more challenging to hear these thoughts with phones, tablets, computers, TV’s and wifi all around us. It’s definitely more challenging when we are always plugged in, and always subject to an onslaught of biased media telling us what and how we should think. It is also challenging if we don’t have any time to ourselves, are over stressed, over burdened with responsibility and have a tendency to get caught up in drama and worry.

Eagle is asking us to soar, physically and mentally. Shed the ego and get outside and just be. Breathe. Use all of your senses to fly up above the drama for a new perspective.

Would you like to hear what your guides have to say? Take a few minutes each day in silent contemplation. Ask for clear guidance and see what comes. It may not be a lightening bolt, it may not be an Archangel standing in front of you in plain view. But it may just be exactly what you need to hear to guide you on. And it may sound just like your own thoughts. With practice you will get better at hearing and you will get better at recognizing and deciphering the messages.

Know that if they lift you up, they are exactly what you need.

Namaste

Buffalo: “Prayer and Abundance”

Buffalo…
You bring us,
The gifts of life.

Hear our prayers,
Smoke rising,
Like Phoenix,

We are reborn,
within the sacred words.”

“In the Lakota tradition it was the White Buffalo Calf Woman who brought the sacred pipe to the people and taught them to pray. The bowl of the pipe was the receptacle that held tabacco, an herb with male and female medicine. The stem of the pipe represented the male entering the female and seeding life. In the coming together of male and female, the connection to the divine energy of the Great Spirit was made. As the pipe was loaded with tobacco, every family in nature was asked to enter into the pipe and share its medicine as prayer and praise to the heavens. The smoke was considered to be visual prayer, and was very sacred and cleansing.

All animals are sacred, but in many traditions, White Buffalo is the most sacred. The appearance of White Buffalo is a sign that prayers are being heard, that the sacred pipe is being honored, and that the promises of prophesy are being fulfilled. White Buffalo signals a time of abundance and plenty.

Buffalo was the major source of sustenance for the Plains Indians. It gave meat for food, hides for clothing, warm and soft buffalo robes for long winters, and hooves for glue. The medicine of Buffalo is prayer, gratitude and praise for that which has been received. Buffalo medicine is also knowing that abundance is present when all relations are honored as sacred, and when gratitude is expressed. to every living part of creation.

Because of its desire to give the gifts that its body provided, and because of its willingness to be used on Earth for the highest good before entering the hunting grounds of Spirit, Buffalo did not readily stampede and run from hunters.

To use Buffalo medicine is to smoke a pipe in a sacred manner, and to give praise for the richness of life to be shared with all races, all creatures, all nations, and all life. It means smoking for others so that their needs are met, praying for the good of all things in harmony, and accepting the Great Mystery as a part of that harmony.

If you have drawn the Buffalo card, you may be asked to use your energy in prayer. You may also be called upon to be an instrument of someone else’s answer to a prayer. This could portend a time of recognizing the sacredness of every walk of life, albeit different from your own. To honor another’s  pathway, even if it brings you sadness, is a part of the message that Buffalo brings. This may be a time of reconnection to the meaning of life and the value of peace. Most assuredly this time will bring serenity amidst chaos if you pray in earnest for enlightenment and the power of calmness and give praise for the gifts you already have.

Buffalo medicine is a sign that you achieve nothing without the aid of the Great Spirit and that you must be humble enough to ask for that assistance and then be grateful for what you receive.”*

If you have been waiting for a sign, this is your sign. You are on the right path. Keep going in this direction. Do not lose heart, do not retreat, do not go back to your old ways. Any change is good change at this point, even if it is not feeling that way. It is entirely possible that you can only see the big black cloud, but you are just too close to see the silver lining… eventually it will all make sense, the clouds will pass and the rainbow will lead you on.

This is a sign that you are fully supported at this time. Have you taken the leap yet? Or is there something holding you back? It’s all about opportunity, about grabbing the bull by the horns, quite literally. This is not a time to sit back and dream about what could be, it is a time to take action and make it happen, even if it scares you to death!

Use all your resources to get you where you need to be. Pray. Use your sacred tools. Light your candles and your incense. Spruce up your altar. Make a crystal grid. Breathe. Meditate. Go deep. Expand. Ascend. Embrace your divine Soul Purpose. There is no time to lose here, you must move forward fearlessly. Your time is now.

Pray for those who need guidance, who need healing. Pray for our great Mother Earth, Gaia. Pray for peace, and for harmony and for change. Pray for justice and for liberation.

And know that together, we can make a difference.

Namaste

Dee
