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.
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.
