Animal Sign

I believe animals cross our path to bring us spiritual messages. Sometimes the messages are about us, our character, strengths or weaknesses. Sometimes they’re about events in our life and our thoughts impacting those events.

I’ve mentioned before, my favorite author on this subject is Ted Andrews. He has two books that I highly recommend, “Animal Speak” and “Animal Wise”.

He puts into words the wisdom of the Shamanistic approach to animal sign I was taught in my early studies. I high recommend his books.  Continue reading

We Will Always Remember and Never Forget

Never Forget those we lost, their family and friends.
Never Forget those first responders and their heroic efforts.
Never Forget those who sacrificed their lives in the aftermath.
Never Forget those who volunteered to serve in response.
Never Forget those who didn’t come home from far and near.
We will always remember, with tears, thoughts and prayers.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Three of Wands


Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Don’t make assumptions, read the manual! Things aren’t what they look like and you want to make sure you follow the correct instructions. Not doing so can create disaster and break products beyond repair, or impact agreements you’ve already made. You’ll also avoid getting upset and frustrated because something isn’t going together as it should.

Additional Insight:

Your task today might be something simple and easy to complete. But once you get your hands into it, things will be a little more complicated and less intuitive than you thought.

Take time to read the instructions and follow the manual from the beginning. The last thing you need is an unnecessary expense. It’s not a day to cut corners or make assumptions concerning something you’ve done many times before.

Sometimes new ideas are placed upon old things and a lot of exceptions, tweaks or band-aids were created to make them work together. You want to make sure you understand the old stuff well enough to maintain it. And you have a grasp on the new stuff to ensure it can still support the old in the manner it’s supposed to.

You’ll be able to solve the riddles and create the solutions. But that will require you to ignore what you already believe and understand about the topic. You may know a lot; but you don’t know everything. Even experts still have room to learn and discover. Don’t dismiss new perspectives of old ideas simply because you feel threatened or embarrassed that you don’t know something. Let go of the prideful arrogance, it’s not going to serve you well.
