The Shamanic flute is freedom. It is not played using a musical score, a set of rules to follow. You are not playing your flute in combination with others. You are not part of an orchestra, unless, of course, you choose to be so.
You have your own tune, your own music to play, but you have been finding that hard to play recently. Perhaps you are trying to follow a music score, but the score calls for you to do something different from what your soul desires, expects and wants… needs to play.
Now is time to switch off from your busy, logical mind that wants to control and manipulate. Get back to what your soul wishes, what speaks to you.
The pandemic has been difficult for all of us. It may have upended your world and given you the chance to learn to play your flute. Instead of being stifled, you can fully express yourself now. Your passion, for your passions, emerges now. Flute urges you to play it and be free of the constraints that have blocked your life and you from your life until now
Bones for Casting
The ritual casting of crystals, stones, beans, sticks, or bones has been a long, long tradition of shaman to help tell the future or describe the options of the present. Help explain the challenges, twists and changes in our human lives
Called divination in our world, this card comes to you now to ask you to slow down, disengage the logical mind and be open to the messages being sent to you and all around you.
Being open to the messages sent to you by the natural world around you is important for your next steps and the direction you will follow soon. Try and find a natural, open space away from the busy logical world, and take a walk. It could be a park, somewhere you can disengage. Even if it is cold in your part of the world as winter sets in, bundle up and smell the cool crisp air.
Ask the natural world to help you as you divine your present state. You need to understand what is in your life that can be a foundation for the additional steps you will take, the new journey. Let your senses and feeling of wonder about your life come alive.
