Dragonfly ~ Illusion


Dragonfly medicine is of the dreamtime and the illusionary facade we accept as physical reality. The iridescence of Dragonfly's wings reminds us of colors not found in our everyday experience. Dragonfly's shifting of color, energy, form, and movement explodes into the mind of the observer, bringing vague memories of a time or place where magic reigned.

Some legends say that Dragonfly was once Dragon, and that Dragon had scales like Dragonfly's wings. Dragon was full of wisdom and flew through the night bringing light with his fiery breath. The breath of Dragon brought forth the art of magic and the illusion of changing form.

Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and the communications from the elemental world. This elemental world is made up of the tiny spirits of plants and of the elements of air, fire, water, and earth. In essence, this world is full of nature spirits.

If Dragonfly has flown into your cards, you may have forgotten to water your plants. On another level, you may need to give thanks to the foods you eat for sustaining your body. On the psychological level, it may be time to break down the illusions you have held that restrict your actions or ideas.

Dragonfly medicine always beckons you to seek out the parts of your habits which need to change. Have you put on too much weight, or have you started to look like a scarecrow? Have you tended to the changes you have wanted to make in your life? If you feel the need for change, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transormation.

Contrary:

Are you trying to prove to yourself or to someone else that you have power? Are you caught in an illusion that weakens your true feelings of minimizes your abilities? If so, you may have contracted "Dragonfly Dive-Bombing." Is this the final "crash and burn" for some pipe dream that had no real purpose? Look within and feel the sense-of-self energy. Notice if it is ebbing, and find the point in time when you were deluded into believing that you would be happier if you changed because someone else wanted you to. Misery is a prime clue that you lost your will and personal validity when you bought into someone else's idea of who or what you should be. The illusion was that you would be happier if you did it their way. In forfeiting what you know is right and true for you personally, you give away your power. It is time for you to take it back.

Follow Dragonfly to the place inside your body where magic is still alive and drink deeply of its power. This strength belongs to you. It is the power of becoming the illusion. This ability is ever changing and contains within it the knowledge that YOU ARE CREATING IT ALL.

Totem Spirit for August 6th - 12th

Horse ~ Power

"Stealing horses is stealing power" was a statement made frequently in historical Native America and a reference to the esteemed role which Horse played in the Native cultures. Horse is physical power and unearthly power. In shamanic practices throughout the world Horse enables shamans to fly through the air and reach heaven.

Humanity made a great leap forward when Horse was domesticated, a discovery akin to that of fire. Before Horse, humans were earthbound, heavy-laden, and slow creatures indeed. Once humans climbed on Horse's back they were as free and fleet as the wind. They could carry burdens for great distances with ease. Through their special relationship with Horse humans altered their self-concept beyond measure. Horse was the first animal medicine of civilization. Humanity owes an incalculable debt to Horse and to the new medicine it brought. It would be a long walk to see one's brother or sister if Horse had not welcomed the two-legged rider upon its back. Today we measure the capacity of engines with the term "horsepower," a reminder of the days when Horse was an honored and highly prized partner with humanity.

In understanding the power of Horse, you may see how to strive for a balanced medicine shield. True power is wisdom found in remembering your total journey. Wisdom comes from remembering pathways you have walked in another person's moccasins. Compassion, caring, teaching, loving, and sharing your gifts, talents, and abilities are the gateways to power.

Contrary:

If your ego has gotten in the way, you may have failed to notice the lack of respect you have been receiving from others. You may, on the other hand, be struggling with others who are abusing their power. "Should I say something? Should I fight my desire to put them in their place?" you may be asking. Remember the times in your own life when you have fallen out of grace with Great Spirit and then have compassion for the brothers or sisters who are now doing the same. If you are overpowering another or feeling overwhelmed, Horse medicine is a simple reminder of how to balance your shields.

In allowing all pathways to have equal validity, you will see the power and glory of the unified family of humanity. This is the gift of the Rainbow Warrior. The "I" has no place in this Whirling Rainbow that comes from the Great Mystery and is replaced with the universal "we." All colors of the rainbow and all pathways are honored as one.

Apply this knowledge and reclaim the power you have given away by forgetting to come from compassion. Untangle yourself from the present situation and understand that every human being must follow this pathway to power before galloping upon the winds of destiny.

Totem Spirit for July 30th - August 5th

I'm pleased to announce that all web sites are back up and running again! Thanks for bearing with me during the down time!!

~*~*~

Frog ~ Cleansing

Frog sings the sings that bring the rain and make the road dirt more bearable. Frog medicine is akin to water energy and the East on the medicine wheel. Frog teaches us to honor our tears, for they cleanse the soul.

Water prepares and cleanses the body for sacred ceremony. It is the element we understand best in the womb. Frog, like ourselves, is a pollywog in the fetal waters and only learns to hop after it experiences the world of fluidity.

The transformation into adulthood prepares Frog for its power to call in the waters of the skies - the rain. In knowing the element of water, Frog can sing the song that calls rain to Earth. When the ponds are dry, Frog calls upon the Thunder Beings to cleanse and replenish the Earth with water. Like Frog, we are asked to know when it is time to refresh, purify, and refill the coffers of the soul.

Frog may be calling in the cleansing you need. If you were to look at where you are today, would you use any of the following words to describe your condition: tired, overloaded, harried, frustrated, guilty, itchy, nervous, at a loss, empty, or weakened? If so, take a break and allow yourself to bathe in the waters of Frog medicine. This could mean a long, relaxing bath, disconnecting the phone, yelling "STOP," or taking in deep, cleansing breaths. The key is to find a way to rid yourself of distractions and to replace the mud with clear energy to replenish your parched spirit, body, and mind.

An ability of Frog medicine people is to give support and energy where it is needed. A Frog medicine person can clean negativity from an environment. Many mediums or clairvoyants who work with cleaning "haunted" houses carry Frog medicine. Many of the world's seers use water on their hands when tapping into other realms of reality due to water's super-conductive nature.

Frog speaks of new life and harmony through its rain song. The deep tones of Frog's "ribet" are said to be a call to the Thunder Beings - thunder, lightning, and rain. The "ribet" is the heartbeat that comes into harmony with Father Sky and calls for the replenishment needed. Call to Frog and find peace in the joy of taking time to give to yourself. A part of this giving is cleansing yourself of any person, place, or thing that does not contribute to your new state of serenity and replenishment.

Contrary:

Frog slipped in the mud and is lying on its back, unable to right itself. Get ready for more mud in your eye.

The contrary position of Frog can denote an unwillingness on your part to wipe the mire out of your life. Mug can turn from mire to bog to quicksand if you don't recognize its effects on your present situation.

Is someone draining your energy? Are you allowing yourself to ride down the tubes with them? Have you tried to settle someone else's quarrel and gotten in the line of fire? STOP! Recognize what it is that is mucking up the lily pond. Swim with Frog. Dive deeply and then hop to the next lily pad to catch the sun. In this way you may see exactly what has been draining your energy.

At times, all of life's activities can be overwhelming, and everyone occasionally needs a break. Contrary Frog can signal one of these moments, but can also portend a time of feeling waterlogged. In feeling waterlogged, you may be dealing with too many emotions or feelings. This is to say that "the world is too much with you," or that you have immersed yourself in one idea or activity to the exclusion of all other facets of your life. If this is the case, a break from the routine is suggested. Hop to other lily pads of visit other ponds for a while.

Negativity is drawn to you when you refuse to give yourself the time and space needed to assume a new viewpoint. Frog in the contrary position is an omen that you are courting disaster if you don't stop and smell the lilies, eat some flies, bask in the sun, and "ribet" until the rain comes to refill your spirit.

Totem Spirit for July 23rd - 29th

Hummingbird ~ Joy

Because of their magical qualities, Hummingbird feathers have long been used for the making of love charms. It is said that Hummingbird conjures love as no other medicine does, and that Hummingbird feathers open the heart. Without an open and loving heart, you can never taste the nectar and pure bliss of life. To Hummingbird, life is a wonderland of delight!

If Hummingbird is your personal medicine, you love life and its joys. Your presence brings joy to others. You join people together in relationships which bring out the best in them. You know instinctively where beauty abides and, near or far, you journey to your ideal. You move comfortably within a beautiful environment and help others to taste the succulent nectar of life.

If Hummingbird has flown into your life today, get ready to laugh and enjoy the Creator's many gifts. Drop your judgmental attitudes and relax. Hummingbird will no doubt give you a flash of the spirit, darting here, there, and everywhere. Get ready for a strange new burst of energy which may send your senses reeling.

Hummingbird hears celestial music and is in harmony with it. Hummingbird may invite you to an art museum or a concert. Follow Hummingbird and you will soon be filled with joy and experience a renewal of the magic of living!

Contrary:

If contrary Hummingbird is in your cards in any configuration, it speaks to you of matters of the heart. How or why has your heart center closed? Have you done something callus to others causing them to shut off the love they once felt for you? The contrary Hummingbird may presage sorrow and the inability to see the many blessings we have been given and the beauty that surrounds us. If contrary Hummingbird sings its forlorn song, perhaps you should journey into your personal pain and know that your sorrow is your joy in another reflection.

Totem Spirit for July 16th - 22nd

Grouse ~ Sacred Spiral

Grouse once flocked in abundance throughout North America, but now, even on the plains where these birds were so plentiful, there is an absence of them. Many Pains Indian tribes dance the Grouse Dance to honor these birds. The movement of the dance follows a spiral, which is the ancient symbol of birth and rebirth.

The Sacred Spiral is one of the oldest known symbols for personal power. When you think of Grouse medicine, visualize a whirlpool or even a tornado, for the Sacred Spiral will take you to the center. The spiral is a metaphor for personal vision and enlightenment. Many initiates on Vision Quests paint spirals on their bodies and believe that the Great Mystery will favor them with visions of power and purpose because of this symbol.

Grouse is telling you to undertake a meditation on the various qualities of movement within your world. Begin by visualizing the Sun as one member of a huge group of stars whirling in the massive pinwheel shape of the Milky Way. Then draw yourself out of this pinwheel of light and into the spiralling of your own DNA.

Analyze the way you move through your world. How do you picture yourself in the act of motion? What kind of reaction to you create with the energy you send into the universe? What words would you use to describe the way you move through both the material and spiritual worlds? In the final analysis, is your movement compatible with you greatest desires and goals?

Many spiritual disciplines ask that you cease all external movement in order to recognize the inner life. Grouse medicine, however, is an invitation to the dance. Grouse celebrates the Divine Source through its sacred spiral dance and offers this dance to you as a gift. You can spend a lifetime learning grouse's lesson on how to harmonize your dance with Mother Earth's cycles and how to offer the dance as a creation of selfless beauty.

Contrary:

Grouse in the reverse position signals a dissipation of energy and lack of control and discipline. It is symbolic of a lost connection to the Source and signifies a lack of clear intent behind an outpouring of energy. You may feel like you are in a tailspin or going down the drain. Confront confusion either in yourself or in others who may be causing friction, sparks, or a convolution of a situation that needs clarification. Work toward harnessing your energy and directing it toward clearly defined goals. Such is the nature of the Sacred Grouse Dance.

In using the sacred dance as a tool to right contrary Grouse, you may also find that it is a tool to center and ground you. In ground, you are once again connecting to Mother Earth and balancing out the spinning in your head. If you have become so involved with an idea or problem that you no longer see it clearly, you may feel dizzy or lacking in concentration. This is a sign that you have entered the thought-universe and are not connected to physical reality. You need grounding if this occurs.

Dancing or walking will put you back in touch with Earth and your body. Grouse may then teach you how to notice the energy flows that put you in harmony and balance with body, mind, and spirit.

Totem Spirit for July 9th - 15th

Lynx ~ Secrets

It is said that if you want to find out a secret, ask Lynx medicine. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get 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 go into the Great Silence for unraveling any mystery. Lynx is not the *guardian* of secrets, but rather the *knower* of secrets.

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.

If Lynx has appeared, 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 a high singing voice in your ear. Perhaps you will receive information in the form of omens. You can be sure that Mother Earth is signaling you in some manner.

If Lynx is at your door, listen. Brother or Sister Lynx can teach you of your personal power and of things you have forgotten about yourself. Lynx can lead you to lost treasures and connect you to forgotten brotherhoods or sisterhoods.

Contrary:

If Lynx appears in the contrary position, it is time to shut your big mouth. Something you are jabbering about has let the "cat" out of the bag. Are you defiling a sacred trust or have you broken a promise to a friend? If not, you may have pulled a good prank on yourself by babbling your latest idea to a friend of a competitor. Watch your tongue and see if you are able to refrain from gossiping or talking about your latest romantic conquest. Look and see if, in your present state, you are able to listen to and truly be interested in someone else's stories or ideas. On this level, Lynx is telling you to become worthy of trust. Then the secrets will be available to you.

You might try choosing to have your brain in gear before your babble starts or your foot may replace your tongue. This is the "know it all" syndrome. Fine - if you want to talk, just sew up your ears. After all, talking leaves no room for hearing or learning. Lynx is a tough teacher and if you have let the cat out of the bag be ready for consequences.
