It’s easy to feel like we aren’t good enough, especially in a world where we are constantly comparing ourselves to what others share on social media. What we show the world on public formats is rarely the tough times and the doubt – so stop comparing yourself to cultivated image! Trust that you can get things done and that you are good enough.

Blessings!

Squirrel Spirit: Believe in Yourself

Message: You have accumulated wisdom and experience and are surrounded by all you need. An abundance of resources is available to you through the generosity of Spirit and all your hard work. Squirrel Spirit shows up when you need reminding that the acorns you have gathered and stowed away have enormous potential to grow, so relax into knowing there is always enough and you have what it take to co-create the reality you want to experience. Through diligent preparation, you have gained wisdom and strength. How much potential you have! Believe in yourself, for Spirit believes in you and wants you to know you have enough and are enough. Doesn’t that truth make you feel safe and secure? It should, for you have everything you need right now.

Protection Message: The unpredictability of life can shake your confidence and your potential for handling the challenges that come your way. Does the thought of not having enough or being enough make you squirrely? Have you forgotten all your strengths, wisdom and resources? You have come so far on your wits and creativity, making use of all your potential and all that Spirit presents to help you through life’s trying times. It’s time to look back on your life and remember how your needs have always been met for the highest good, even in your most challenging times.

Life loves you, and so many treasures are hidden in plain sight, ready to be revealed when you most need them – so relax. Squirrel Spirit wants you to know you are poised and ready for whatever is coming next, so trust in yourself and trust that Spirit has your back!

It’s easy to fall into the rhythm of the same ol’, same ol’ – especially during the winter months (for those of us in the Northern Hem). If you’ve been holing up and doing the same comforting routines, perhaps shake it up a little to give your soul something else to consider. Visit a nearby museum, go on a short hike, volunteer somewhere. Alternatively, if you are always on the go, maybe take some time to stay home and read, craft, meditate, or something else a little more calm and introspective. Feed your soul something different.

Blessings!

Nourish the Soul

Drink in life. Use your senses to explore your world – to see, touch, taste, smell, here, and experience all that is within you and around you. Your journey through life is meant to be a sensory experience. Your life is meant to be a rainbow of color, full of motion and sound. It is not meant to be a bland, tasteless existence of simply black-and-white. Be sensual. Explore yourself and your world every day and nourish your soul with every moment.

Be yourself and know that you don’t need to squeeze yourself into some societal cookie cutter. Blessings!

Know You Belong

You have place. You have purpose. You are special. Do not change who you are just so others might accept you. Do not dishonor your truths by allowing someone else to tell you who you must be. Change made just so you fit the expectations or social criteria of a clique or group does not honor you. You do not need to change in order to belong. You are a blessed child of Gaia and Great Spirit and belong simply because you are you.

I am amazed at otters: their fluid and graceful movements, their fun-loving ways, the fact that they enjoy a good stone. They remind us to go with the flow and learn to enjoy ourselves as we handle life’s responsibilities and challenges.

Otter (Dobhran)- Joy, play, and helpfulness

Meaning: Otter invites us to play, to go with the flow of life and experience – to become a child again. Allow yourself the freedom and pleasure of relaxing and letting go of all your daily concerns. Otter could be prompting you to take a day or a weekend out of your usual routine to do something purely for fun. Your practical side may tell you that you cannot afford the time, but deep down you know that you need to care for yourself to be a real value to others.

Someone may even be coming into your life who will show you how to play again – something you may have forgotten as you accepted the responsibilities of growing up. Otter shows us that being playful can lead us to catch the salmon – the fish prized by the druids as the totem of wisdom. Drawing this card also confirms to us the sense that we are truly protected.

This card can also suggest that you may be “pushing the river “– going against the natural course of events, perhaps out of fear or stubbornness. Try letting go, relaxing, and trusting in life. Although Otter urges us to be playful, we must be aware of becoming the play boy or girl who uses play as an escape from the demands and responsibilities of adulthood.

I feel this card pretty intensely, though modern life makes it difficult to focus. We must work hard to make it happen if it’s what we need. Perhaps start with a cup of mint tea, and let the refreshing flavor kickstart a break from distractions. Also note that the Glastonbury Tor (sans the medieval tower) appears in the background of this card – an indicator to mentally walk the labyrinth to find your focus.

Blessings and happy Monday!

Card of the Day: Mint (Clarity, Concentration, Renewal)

Meaning: Mint was traditionally used to aid concentration and digestion. Today we often need to process a vast amount of information, and our concentration is challenged by a thousand distractions. Choosing this card may indicate that your are entering a period when you need to focus carefully on your work or on what is currently happening in your life.

It could well be that a renewal or freshness will appear in a relationship or project that you hadn’t expected, and to profit from this you will need to be attentive. Just as vibrance and clarity are elusive qualities that can easily disappear in amount, so too can opportunities for new life and growth for missed if you are inattentive. You might also like to think about ways in which you could be proactive in initiating renewal, rather than simply waiting for it to occur.

Reversed: Confusion, Dullness, Lack of Focus)

Clarity is a subtle quality that is worth cherishing. If you have chosen this card, it may indicate that you have lost this characteristic and that you need to focus on bringing it back into your life. Remember the feeling of waking to a bright spring day when you were your, of splashing your face with cold water and of feeling wonderfully clear-headed and alive. Ask yourself what you need to do to regain that feeling, and see if you can take steps towards this. The plant world in particular can help you in a this respect – walking in nature, communing with trees and plants, eating the right foods and taking the right herbs can all help to bring you the sense of clarity, freshness and renewal that you seek.

Alternatively, the card may signify a temporary loss of focus. It could be time to explore your goals and discover what it is you really want out of life, and to start prioritizing your life accordingly.

I would have preferred a card that suggested we hole up and rest, especially since we have some chilly weather here. However, it looks like some of us need to get on the ball (which is also true for me as well as the rest). For those of us in winter season, perhaps we need to get a task or two done so we can rest easily.

I think I need to let Tarot Kitty Cerridwen in on this because she was trying to slow up the card this morning!

Have a great Thursday.

Antelope Spirit – Life is Speeding Up!

Message: When Antelope Spirit rushes into your life, you’re being reminded of the quickening of your personal evolution as a powerful co-creator. You are being told unequivocally that it’s time to get moving; set your intentions and take action toward making your dreams real.

There is an intensity you can feel, and it is important to take advantage of this energy right now. If you have a plan for your career of financial abundance, now is the time to step it up. If you’re asking about a relationship, make that first move. Just know that the intentions you have set in motion are coming together now at warp speed; stay alert and keep up. Things are getting interesting when the Antelope calls you to move quickly!

Protection Message: Do you feel how fast the world is changing, like everything is moving at warp speed? It’s hard to control desired outcomes or set fixed goals because by the time you get “there,” you will actually have moved beyond it. Now is the time to let go and enjoy the exhilarating ride as intentions you have set in motion in the past are coming into form with lightning speed. Your job is to stay the course even if the pace feels dizzying. You may find you will change your mind a half dozen times or more as you improve your offerings – that is just fine. Make peace with the pace, for if you ride this quickening energy you will solve challenges quickly and effortlessly instead of being bogged down.

The best way to use this energy is to let go of worry and stay mindfully present as you continue to take action. Also, if something is not going to be in your best interests, no matter how badly you want it, Antelope will quickly remove it so you can move toward what is truly meant for you. If something is taken away, be grateful and keep moving!

This is not the time to sit still but to breath deeply as you move forward with velocity!

There is much in disarray in the world right now – perhaps this card suggests those of us in secure positions need to do our part to help those who are not. This may not be just physical/monetary help – encouragement, energy, activism, and so forth. Or perhaps it is time for you to accept some help from others and take shelter from the storm.

Blessings!

Meaning: The newly risen sun brings hope and renewed vitality to the vulnerable. Shelter and protection for the weak or the spiritually wounded is the responsibility of us all.

Reading Points: Many trials and tribulations surface during our lifetime, and being able to endure such times is the sign of a strong heart and healthy spirit. Finding a personal place of emotional safety may require patience and a stoical dedication to the quest, but for those who have weathered adversity and known loss, the light of life and love will always burn brightly within them. By building on a foundation of ethical beliefs, boundaries and skills, we can be assured that when the test comes we are secure in our self-knowledge and confidence. The human ability to recognize and feel compassion for those who need help is just as important. However the storm may tear at our own inner place of protection, we must keep the faith that the sun will rise again for all those in peril and offer fresh opportunities and spiritual rewards. Such is the law of karma, that each act of selfless protection and mercy for those in need revitalized the spiritual warrior with a sense of peace and divinity rarely found in common practice.
