Thunder

Tengri, the great God of the Mongol Sky speaks in ways that cannot be misunderstood. Thunder is a wake-up call. A call to be alert and be prepared as the tensions in the sky are realised so dramatically. Do you have relationships, friendships, or acquaintances that have been under stress? 

Now is the time to release those tensions and everyone live life in a more relaxed manner. Thunder is dramatic and releasing tensions can be dramatic, one of your challenges is not to allow the thunder in what you are releasing, destroy what it is you hoped to save.

Thunder also speaks to opportunity, it is arriving in your life, perhaps more than once and the effect can have will be dramatic. Now is the time to prepare for the great adventures that will be coming to you.

Be ready to learn abouto use them. You need to be prepared to run with them. Stand ready to be flexible, dexterous, and open to the experiences coming to you. Now is the time to look out over the sea and see your ships all coming in to port. Be ready to unload them.

This card is a repeat of last week. It is a message sent to you to say that nothing has changed, the message from last week has not been heard by you, so, it is repeated. Pay Attention!

The Rainbow

The rainbow only exists because of the Sun. The light of the sun shines through the water left in the air after a storm to make something bright, sunny, hopeful, and magical.

The colours in the rainbow include the colours of the Chakras that exist in each one of us. The chakras conduct and manage the energy in our bodies and our souls. In the high mountains of the Himalayas a rainbow is recognised as the full realization of our essence. 

The brilliance of a rainbow is that it marks the end of a storm, a difficult period in your life. Remember to carry on as you have, as they say, it is darkest before dawn.

The rainbow is a bridge between the spiritual world and the physical. Shamans climb a rainbow to the upper world to speak with and learn from spirts beneficial to mankind as part of their healing process. A rainbow appears as a message to affirm all is well and that you are in right relationship with Spirit.

The rainbow is a message not to celebrate too early, victory, success, happiness or whatever it is you are trying to manifest which has not arrived. Do not get fascinated by an illusion of a pot of gold. No one has ever found the post of gold at the end of the rainbow, so enjoy what you have, and those around you 

The Smoky Mirror

When we look in a modern mirror our refection is sharp and clear, free of distortion. The reflection is precise and we are happy. But centuries ago, that as not the case, even glass mirrors had many imperfections and the surface was uneven. Metal mirrors were hammered into shape and even less perfect, all of the old mirrors reflected less light, and hid many imperfections that today, we can see.

The Smoky Mirror is like an old mirror, things are reflected back to us lacking clarity. Things that we look for in the mirror are hidden by its imperfection. This is not a mistake. This is not entirely the result of the imperfect nature of the old mirror. It is because what you are looking for in the mirror is hidden from you and for a reason.

The time for those things to be revealed is not now. The journey of a thousand miles starts with one foot step says the old Chinese proverb. Understand that as the mirror improves, things will become clearer.

The Sun

The sun is the brightest card in the deck. It can be beautiful to gaze at during sunrise and sunset and it can be burningly hot at midday. As we move from the shortest day at the Winter Solstice, days start to grow longer and we expect warmth to envelope us.

As the days grow longer, so do our hopes and plans for the spring, summer and fall. We anticipate and we enjoy seeing animals start to come out and be more active. Our passions and energy start to rise and we feel reenergized and reborn. Now is the time to enjoy the brighter days and the brighter things in your life. 

Brighter things in your life include the night, rest, relaxation and sleep. These are valuable and tend to be lost during the long dark evenings of winter. If you have been working hard, take a moment to rest up and enjoy the evenings and the joys that rest bring us.

Thunder

Tengri, the great God of the Mongol Sky speaks in ways that cannot be misunderstood. Thunder is a wake-up call. A call to be alert and be prepared as the tensions in the sky are realised so dramatically. Do you have relationships, friendships, or acquaintances that have been under stress? 

Now is the time to release those tensions and everyone live life in a more relaxed manner. Thunder is dramatic and releasing tensions can be dramatic, one of your challenges is not to allow the thunder in what you are releasing, destroy what it is you hoped to save.

Thunder also speaks to opportunity, it is arriving in your life, perhaps more than once and the effect can be dramatic. Now is the time to prepare for the great adventures that will be coming to you.

Be ready to learn about the and how to use them. You need to be prepared to run with them. Stand ready to be flexible, dexterous, and open to the experiences coming to you. Now is the time to look out over the sea and see your ships coming in to port. Be ready to unload them.

Flow

When we think of flow, we think of water flowing in streams and rivers, we think of the eb and flow of life in ourselves and in all living things around us. We even think of the flow of traffic when we are moving swiftly along the highway. We think of the flow of air as it moves clouds around the sky.

When we plan and strategize on how to reach our goals, we put a lot of things into motion. Sometimes we struggle, we fight to make things happen. As much as we want to manifest something now, right now! Yet, nothing happens. Understand that the universe has heard you, it is heard what you are trying to manifest and things are starting to move even if you cannot see or feel them.

There is a certain cadence to life and all things we try and create, when Flow appears in the cards, it means it is time to be steady, to let the eb and flow of life move you and your plans forward. There is a time to strive and a time to rest, now is the time to rest.

If you continue to try pushing forward, life will become like a piece of string. String can be pulled behind your or beside you and it can be tied to something you want secured, but it cannot be pushed. 

Whatever obstacle is in front of you right now, trust this is for the highest good. It is an opportunity to regroup and reconsider your choices, and you must trust that your intentions will take form in good time. Be in the NOW and consider this moment to be a gift.

The Owl

Owl Spirit arrives to remind you that the wisdom within you is informed by your keen senses and the wisdom within the consciousness we all share. Even in the darkest night, the owl sees clearly and is guided by every sense it has, including the first sense of intuition. Right now, your sensitivities are turbocharged and you are receiving messages from all directions. Owl Spirit reminds you to be wise and pay attention to what’s between the lines, what is invisible to the naked eye, what cannot be heard with the ears, and what others may not be able to perceive. With all your senses aroused, you have much knowledge available to you. Clarity will come as you sit with all that you are sensing, allowing your intuition to guide you in understanding the whole and not just the parts. Let your wisdom arise and be your guide as you trust the acuity of all your senses. Intuition is real and can provide the clarity you need to understand your situation right now. Your relationship, your finances, your job—whatever it is, you can see the truth clearly now.

The Owl lends you the eyes that you need in order to see in the dark around you. The Owl can cut through the shadows to illuminate the real truth. Someone may be trying to camouflage his or her real intentions. Deceit, lies, and unclear intentions are exposed with Owl energy.

The Owl also reminds you to be honest with yourself and snap out of any lies or denial inside of  you. Lying to yourself is the way that you’ll remain lost in a prison of your own making. The Owl appears to ask you to seek the truth in the darkest places within yourself. This will set you free and restore you to wholeness.

All is well with the Owl to guide you. Deep wisdom into human nature is gained through the ability to recognize untruths. This is an important marker on your path.

The Medicine Wheel

The shaman recognizes the four cardinal signs of the compass. The wheel represents the circular pattern of life and it will help you understand your inner self. 

Sit quietly, to the South. You are clinging to, old desires, relationships, friendships, or a job. Release them and make space for the new that is coming.

Sit quietly and look to the West and consider toxic relationships. Maybe at work, friends, a lover, look at the negative feelings they create in you, and how they drain your energy, they must go. 

Look to the North. Pride, not in an arrogant way. Your passions, do you show them? Are you an artist who never paints, a musician that never records? A writer who never writes? Why? Change this. When asked, be proud to say what you are. 

Look to the East. Anger. Think of how you want to live life, write it down. Visualize it in your mind with clarity. This is your future that you want to manifest. Anger is fire, use it to add energy, boldness, and drive to your future.

The Ancient Ones

The Ancient ones bring ancient knowledge with them. They are shamans who walked the earth like us, they come from the distant past and a different path of knowledge and belief. Shamans have been helping and supporting human kind live and pass over and be reincarnated for tens of thousands of years. European cave paintings and carvings showing a shaman date from the Paleolithic era, 3.3 million years ago. Graves of shaman 12,000-year-old and older have been discovered in Israel and the Czech Republic.

We are all, collectively, engaged in creating a new future for ourselves and for all things on this earth. Mother Gia blesses us with abundance, health and love but relies on us to return that bounty.

Now is the time to sit down and quieten that busy egoic mind and consider what your future is and how you can include the earth, that gives us so much. A new home, make it a home where you can grow things, plants and flowers so that bees have pollen to collect to take back to their hives and make honey.

This is a time to be ambitious and purposeful. Now is the time to reach for your goals and not worry about whether “you can” or “should” be so ambitious. Now is not the time to hold back, worry, be anxious or fearful of biting off more than you can chew. Remember, when the builders started constructing the Cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy, they did not know how to build the dome that was designed. They expected the later builders would have the skills necessary to do so.This is time for you to have that faith in yourself and the spiritual energy the Ancient Ones are making available to you.

The Sorcerer

The Sorcerer symbolizes beliefs and ideas of division, struggle and being without. We feel the sorcerer casts a dark shadow over our lives, but in reality, the shadows are own. Those shadows are feelings of separation from loved one, colleagues, pets. Feelings of conflict and aggression to others in order to achieve our self-centred goals.

Our shadows may be narrow, broad, or generous in their focus. Either way, our busy mind loves to feed off the shadow energy and its negative feelings. The sorcerer, is asking you to look at these energies, examine how destructive they are. What are you feeling? Resentment, vengeance, lust, greed, bigotry, or hatred about or to whom or what. These feelings are unjustified and not your spiritual core which is pushed away without consideration.

The Sorcerer challenges you, confronts your dark thinking and beliefs. Now! Is a second chance! Start over. Be strong and be vigilant about the darkness you are beings asked to recognise, and then, to discard. 

Others are not blame for what is inside of you, what you allow to be there. Take a moment to create a sense of peace and move in another direction and do not allow those negative thoughts and feelings to grow again. You are done with them and that way of living.

The Gatherer

Your ships are coming in!

The gatherer is here to help you collect the bounty you have sown. Like a farmer you have worked at something in the belief it will grow into something beautiful and worthwhile. Something that will feed you and help nurture those you love.

It may have been something those around you do not value or tell you will come to nothing. They do not see the value in it that you do, they do not have seeds of their own to plant for their future. You have weathered the comments and the doubts showered on you. You have not followed their recommendations that would have meant giving up on your dreams, your beliefs. 

Now is the time to trust in the bounty that is arriving and that there is more to come. Concentrate on the abundance and push away thoughts of scarcity and limitation. You have enough of what you need to gather all the abundance coming to you. You have more than enough to plant and nurture to bring more abundance for the future. The future will require more effort, but for now, enjoy the abundance coming to you.

JaguarThe Jaguar a creature of the jungle, it is an apex predator, it eats what it wants, it is powerful, rarely seen, it is never prey. If this speaks to you then you know the ways of the shadows and how to work behind the scenes for your best advantage, especially in the corporate world. Yet you are limited. You have created walls for yourself. Are the walls to keep the world out or you in?  

The walls cast shadows of darkness and restraint. They have stopped you form moving on to better things. This week, look at the walls, understand why you have created them. Now, move beyond them. As you do, acknowledge what is not working for you, possessions, people, ideas, concepts, let go and leave them behind.

The Vision Quest

A vision quest is a way to come to terms with yourself and where you are spiritually. It is a journey through our feelings, our hopes and desires, what we want to manifest and our feelings about potential, opportunities and the sacrifices we are prepared to make. 

A shaman will undertake a vision quest to speak to souls and spirits to gain knowledge and perspective, good and bad and what is useful and what is not. They will do this for their own benefit but also the benefit of people they are asked to help. By undertaking vision quests, the shaman will understand how to unlock new possibilities, and close the door to ones that should end to allow the person to move on.

If you do not have a shaman, you can look into your hopes and desires and the fears and anxieties to see the direction in which you should be going. The Vision Quest is asking you to undertaking this personal vision quest at times when you feel stagnant, not progressing, or it is too hard to progress. If you are finding it difficult perhaps you should not be going in that direction?

The Vision Quest ask you to find some quiet time and get out of the house, join in the life force of nature. A house and a car keep you away from growing things. This quiet time will help you understand and tune in to what it is you need to be doing, not what you are doing. When you are outside, perhaps just in your back yard or garden, still busy mind, stop thinking tirelessly and consuming your essential energy. You will need all the energy you have for the new opportunities and the changes The Vision Quest will open up to you.

The Owl

Owl Spirit arrives to remind you that the wisdom within you is informed by your keen senses and the wisdom within the consciousness we all share. Even in the darkest night, the owl sees clearly and is guided by every sense it has, including the first sense of intuition. Right now, your sensitivities are turbocharged and you are receiving messages from all directions. Owl Spirit reminds you to be wise and pay attention to what’s between the lines, what is invisible to the naked eye, what cannot be heard with the ears, and what others may not be able to perceive. With all your senses aroused, you have much knowledge available to you. Clarity will come as you sit with all that you are sensing, allowing your intuition to guide you in understanding the whole and not just the parts. Let your wisdom arise and be your guide as you trust the acuity of all your senses. Intuition is real and can provide the clarity you need to understand your situation right now. Your relationship, your finances, your job—whatever it is, you can see the truth clearly now.

The Owl brightens your vision in order for you to see in the dark. The Owl can cut through the shadows to illuminate the real truth. Someone may be trying to camouflage his or her real intentions. Deceit, lies, and unclear intentions are exposed with Owl energy.

The Owl also reminds you to be honest with yourself and snap out of any lies or denial inside you. Lying to yourself is the way that you’ll remain lost in a prison of your own making. The Owl appears to ask you to seek the truth in the darkest places within yourself. This will set you free and restore you to wholeness.

All is well with the Owl to guide you. Deep wisdom into human nature is gained through the ability to recognize untruths. This is an important marker on your path.

The Staff

The staff is the symbol of authority. The shaman’s staff is the home of a helping spirit the shaman uses during healing practices. The spirit in the staff helps and guides and supports you physically and emotionally to find the right course of action. It tells you to move the tip of the staff forward so you can take the step you are intended to take.

The staff again reminds you of the impermanence of all things, and that your authority must come from your deep longing to serve.

Now is the time to study your life path, the next step on your journey. As you ponder the step, recognise that you have already decided to take it, what is missing in action. Use the strength and balance the spirit in the shaman’s staff gives you to move from the negative and inaction to the positive and action. Do It Now! 

The Serpent

The Serpent is a symbol of healing and gaining knowledge. Two coiled serpents are part of the Caduceus. The caduceus is the traditional symbol of Hermes and features two snakes winding around an often-winged staff. It is often used as a symbol of medicine especially in the United States. Perhaps the first appearance of a similar symbol, especially in relation to healing, is found in the Jewish Torah, after the Exodus in approximately 1300 BCE.

Emotional and spiritual wounds from the past, perhaps a failed relationship needs healing. Start this week. You do not need the burden of what has failed, but look into why and learn from what happened and the effect on you. Become a new person as a result of the healing. 

Look into learning, online courses, training, books, videos. Choose learning methods where you are in control of the pace. You can learn quickly now, do so! The knowledge you gain will help you be successful. If you have doubts about what it is you are to study. Take a moment to ask “The Serpent” what it is you should study and be patient, the answer will come to you when you least expect it.

The Serpent is the life force of Mother Gaia, Mother Earth. In Hinduism, Kundalini energy is represented as a coiled snake. It is a form of divine feminine energy believed to be located at the base of the spine, in the Muladhara. The Serpent brings our life force to the front for your attention. She speaks of the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden, and reminds us to shed the past the way a snake sheds her old and tired skin. Serpent offers you forbidden fruit that will set your passion and creativity free.This is a time for rejuvenation and energy and progress, if you will embrace it. Welcome it and the new energy for life that shedding your old skin will bring.

This is the Shaman Energy card Reading for the week starting Monday 2020/11/30

Luminous Warrior

The Luminous Warrior has no gender and enemies in this world or the next. Impeccable in word and deed, he or she focuses on their light rather than on what hides in the dark. The Luminous Warrior casts no shadow only radiant energy like the sun and can transform the most terrible enemy into their ally. Power comes not from the sword but from speaking truth at all costs.

Now is the time to focus on your positive traits and make sure they are clear to all around you. The positive in you is your light, your presence and power. The intention in that power is what helps you manifest what you want in life. Focus on what makes you strong, vibrant and full of natural wisdom and beauty. None of us is perfect, do not let worry or negative thoughts misdirect you, or, worry you.  Always, focus on positivity and what you do well. 

When you focus on positive actions and what you do well, you strengthen those traits in you and the universe takes notice. There will be little need for action, as you resolve all situations from within yourself.

Mistakes you have made in the past should not be repeated, whether it’s friendships, romantic relationships or work. Do not let yourself repeat what does not serve you or dulls your presence. If the thought of doing so brings anger, release it. Do not hurt the yourself or the people who are dear to you.

Upper World

To the shaman the Upper world is a place of light, strength and power. It is filled with angels, spirits and souls of those who have ascended. It is a place of divine help, a place to visit when Soul Journeying to find answers to help someone in need. Your destiny holds the map to who you will become and what you will be. The Upper World is a place of potential, possibility and opportunity. 

The Upper world is the place of the Ancient Ones, and their Ancient Wisdom. It is the Upper World where spirits of the dead, your parents, and siblings, your pets and all animals you have loved and cared for go when they ascend to a higher plane.

We are in a time of pandemic and illness. Immense distraction and tests of our ability to stay in our personal light and connected with our possibilities and opportunities. Now, more than ever, this is the time to be alone and quietly concentrate on your great potential and undreamt-of possibilities. It is time to look at your life positively and also to think of the future in the same way.

If you need help, it’s alright to call on your spirits and guides, even if you do not know who they are. Simply ask “all my spirits and guides… please help me with this… ” and speak about what you need help with.

Soul Retrieval

Soul Retrieval is very much a Shaman’s role and purpose. It is one thing a shaman will do to someone who asks for help when they feel lost and confused. Loss and confusion are often indications a part of the persons soul, is missing, or has been stolen. An injury, accident or other traumatic event may have fragmented the persons soul. The shaman will use their skill and knowledge in Soul Retrieval to collect all the fragments and reintegrate them, making the person whole again. In doing so the Shaman banishes the pain that caused the fragmentation.

All of us have events in our lives that take something from us, fragment us. Things that make us doubt, and feel incomplete. This is a message for immediate action, it is time to reflect on those events and what we were like before and after. Do not dwell over old wounds, fears, doubts, anxieties, and problems. Releasing these brings back your essential essence. 

Taming the Wind

A feather comes from a bird. It is a symbol of flight and freedom. It is also used in soul space clearing – a smudging ceremony to push away and banish all essence and spirits that is of lower and darker energy. When you use the feather this way you are calling the Great Spirit, or “Spirit” into your material world. This is a good thing, a very, very good thing. 

Find some quiet time. If you have a feather hold it, if not, think of one you have seen. It is time to start a journal. A journal need not be a book, though that is traditional format. It can be a Word document with each section having a date and your observations, hopes, dreams and thoughts typed there. The journal will include all your thoughts and positive actions, and intentions.

Release fears doubts, anxieties, and worries to bring back your essential essence is a positive, clearing of your spirit and your personal space that influences you. Become a good listener, listen to what is said, not what you think or want to be said. Listening this way helps prevent confusion and misunderstandings.

What this is – Hello and welcome to the “The Shaman Podcast”

Speaker –        Mark A. Ashford

                        I am a Usui Tibetan Reiki Master and Teacher for IARP

                        I am a Registered Teacher and Practitioner for Canadian Reiki Association

                        Tibetan Shaman

Some of the other sources are:

  2. Books – in full color available on Amazon.ca 
  3. Online courses
  4. Blogs on Reiki and Shamanism
  5. Click the link at the end for more information on our Social media and more…

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

Corn represents the mother; it represents sustenance and tangible abundance. Corn is material prosperity, good fortune in a form that fills the bellies, hearts and minds of many. It tells us there is more than enough to go around.

You have dreams and hopes for the future. A farmer knows that hard work is required to help what they have planted grow and be abundant. Your dreams have required hard work to bring them to where they are today. When storms ravage their fields, farmers still go out to help their plants grow. They have faith that they will reap a harvest, even if at the moment they are not sure of it. 

Like a farmer, you must continue working on your field of dreams.

Now the spirit of the Corn. The card comes to honor and show you a bountiful harvest. 

This is the time to reap the rewards of hard work and trust, whether those rewards are financial or the kind of prosperity measured in quality rather than quantity. You are so blessed when this symbol appears. 

Don’t forget to share your good fortune.

Also, beware of shortcuts to your dreams or a fast track being offered to you now. They will not bring the good fortune you think they will. 

Feelings of entitlement or an expectation to get something for nothing. This is a time for gratitude, perseverance, and humility for what you receive. Know that working hard to make your dreams happen fills your dreams with substance and energy. A shortcut does not, it creates hollow dreams and lack of appreciation or understanding of your dreams for you personally. Respect the energy required to make your dreams reality and respect what you have put into your dreams.

Release any insecure thoughts of scarcity, feeling that there is not enough, or worry that someone else could take what is yours. Know that the universe will always provide, but you must be in a relationship with it in order to receive. You will reap what you sow. Take heart; even if you didn’t plant well and have conjured up the illusion of a drought, there is always a new season to begin again.

The Ancient Ones are shamans who defeated death and escaped the tyranny of time. They come from the past and they understand what it means to walk the earth as we do in flesh and bone. Living now in infinity they counsel us after we say yes to our calling. They are available to help us attain our full realization.

The Ancient Ones are inviting you to reach for the future and help birth a new destiny for the Earth. Go ahead; find out who you will become 10,000 years from now. If you accept the invitation, great power and blessings will come your way and allow you to craft a new destiny for yourself. Do not hesitate to bite off more than you can chew, because you have unlimited spiritual resources available now.

The Ancient Ones ask you to examine your attitudes and actions and be sure that they are of the highest integrity. Not forgiving an ancestor (or yourself) is keeping you from the freedom you seek. Remember this is no longer your karma. You can break the chains that once bound you to the family drama and be free of your generational curses. Forgive the ones you need to release. Honor your biological ancestors by lighting a candle to them.

To sacrifice means “to make sacred.” The sacrifice is an offering of gratitude made from the heart, a feast of love prepared for Spirit. In olden days, sacrifices sometimes involved rituals in which blood was offered to the gods. In the Bible, Yahweh preferred Abel’s sacrifice of one of his lambs to Cain’s offering of vegetables and fruits. Quetzalcoatl, the Lord of the Dawn, came to teach that Spirit preferred songs and our prayers to the blood of humans or animals.

Sacrifice asks that you offer to Spirit that which is most precious to you. Your love and devotion, your energy and your creativity. You will be elevated to the altar at which you have been praying and meet the divine at the table with the heavenly feast. You are a welcome guest in this banquet. Your heart is the only worthy offering you can bring. Life has been generous with you in so many ways!

What is the one person or thing that you feel you cannot live without? It is you, yourself. It is time to offer yourself to Spirit so that your life may unfold as it is destined too. You have sacrificed yourself and your dreams for too long in preference to helping and guiding others. Rededicate yourself to your own journey, and the gifts given to you for YOUR journey. You have more than enough. When you “make sacred,” you open the doors to infinite wealth! Do not delay.

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

The staff is the symbol of authority. It appeared in the reading for 2020/10/19. This repeating message tells you have not acted. The shaman’s staff is the home of a helping spirit the shaman uses during his healing practices. The spirit in the staff helps and guides and supports you physically and emotionally to find the right course of action. It tells you to move the tip of the staff forward so you can take the step you are intended to take.

The staff again reminds you of the impermanence of all things, and that your authority must come from your deep longing to serve.

Now is the time to study your life path, the next step on your journey. As you ponder the step, recognize that you have already decided to take it, what is missing in action. Use the strength and balance the spirit in the shaman’s staff gives you to move from the negative and inaction to the positive and action. Do It Now! 

The Heart of Sky is Creation. It is love and the life force making all things possible. 

To the shaman the sky is air, one of the essential five elements. Air is flow, movement strength and force. A strong wind that really has no substance can blow over a strong tall tree as well as a building if it is not built well or insecure.

Think of anger, discomfort, fear, unhappiness, even minor illness such as a headache. Negative thoughts and fears. Those thoughts and fears will make you unhappy, feel down or depressed. Let the wind blow those away and leave your psyche clean and clear, and refreshed.

The sky is also space because through air we see the stars and the void between them, space is also an essential element for the shaman. Let yourself be open to the wonder you are seeing and relax. Let the infinity of space come into your being and give you a sense of limitlessness.

When you concentrate on space your mind is clearer, less cluttered and more energetic. You have less tension; you feel less disrupted. You can sit back and see the big picture and at the same time, seize the opportunities coming to you because you have more space to accommodate them.

The Heart of Sky reminds you that you are a channel for the original energy of creation. Become the paintbrush, the canvas, and the artist, all guided by the Heart of Sky. Set your intention, ethically and clearly, and allow the universe to take care of the details.

You may feel responsible for everything and everyone. Perhaps you think you have to do it all alone. This takes you into a dark hole where you lose trust in the natural order of the cosmos. Shed your lofty sense of duty, and recognize that this is a false prison of your own making. You can open the door and set yourself free in an instant.

Tiny and beautiful, hummingbirds fly enormous distances relative to their size. They migrate between North and Central or South America to feed on the nectar available in the summer flowers. They are fiercely territorial and protect their home vigorously. As the hummingbird drinks its high-octane nectar to fuel itself it shows us how important what we eat is. Only eat what beneficial and nutritious.

The hummingbird bypasses flowers which may be attractive but do not have enough nectar, so must you bypass opportunities that are less than what they seem. Pay attention to the details of offers that come your way.

When you hear the buzzing of hummingbird wings, that is the sound of a hummingbird looking at a new adventure.

Trust that your spiritual guides have brought you to the right place, the right moment, now it is up to you to take bold action and like the hummingbird drink the nectar. Trust that success is assured, even if there are still tests and challenges. Know that all will be well because the All is in the small.

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

The Beloved. Spirit exits in each and every one of us. We are in love when we recognize Spirit in another. That is when we truly fall in love. As we mature and we are able to recognize Spirit more deeply in ourselves, we begin to see it more deeply in others and can understand it in them.

Spirit in another is not surface or ego love. Let the other person show their true selves. Give them time and yourself time to understand each other. If they are only acting as a mirror, reflecting your own surface desires and hopes, and you do not recognize this, you will endure false emotions and hurtful love which will damage both of you for some time to come.

Open your eyes and proceed cautiously in a new relationship.

When Standstill appears, we are asked to pause. We are moving too fast, or we are moving in the wrong direction. Now is the time to stop, look around and observe your situation. We need to sit down if we are standing or lay down if we are sitting. If we are stuck and not moving forward, we need to rest. Non action, is action, if we use the time and the energy it gives us correctly.

Standstill may also appear when nothing is happening, we are not progressing and there is a feeling the universe has forgotten us and is not sharing anything with us anymore. Remember, no one or thing can move constantly without rest being required. Allow yourself to rest now. 

Rest is also peace. Allow peace to flow through you as information and facts come to you. When they do, consider them peacefully and generously and relax as the wheel of fortune spins in your favour. For now, enjoy the beauty that is pausing before more action. Enjoy it. Control the egoic mind stop it from burning your precious energy and creating worry, doubt, anxiety and fear. Let the universe bring all the parts together for the highest good. Go and play, recharge, and take the focus off whatever has stalled. Life will get busy again for you sooner than you think.

Recognize that the egoic mind also likes to engage in endless analysis – analysis paralysis – that leads to no action but consumes vital energy. Analysis paralysis blocks you and those around you. Now is the time to consider whether you are going in the right direction in a relaxed manner. You have been given this time to stop a project, to exit before damage and without any cost. Your thoughts and deeds at this time are elegant and balanced because nothing is interfering with them. When something doesn’t go the way you think it should, remember the following: what is yours cannot be taken away.

The Sorcerer is the basis of dark power. Dark power is destructive, it is the part of the human psyche that is self-centered, jealous, and harms others, or seeks to harm others without any regard for them. It symbolizes the unconscious beliefs and ideas that foster separation, conflict, and scarcity.

When the Sorcerer enters your circle, you’re being called to look at how your beliefs around scarcity and self-centered fear manifest in your world. 

Examine the destructive part of your psyche that misuses power or harbors feelings of resentment, vengeance, lust, greed, bigotry, or hatred. 

Maybe because of your actions, or, purposeful inaction, you have harmed someone. The Sorcerer is here, now to challenge you, change your approach, your thinking, your habits, your wishes and goals. You have a second chance. Correct your course and practice not blaming others for the darkness that lives inside you. Make peace with it and choose another way.

Have you been feeling out of sorts because you’ve been faced with your own character flaws and the pain that you inflict on others when you are out of alignment? Radical self-acceptance is called for now. 

You must reconcile these darker aspects of your nature so you don’t behave irresponsibly and cause more harm to yourself and the ones you love. It’s time to come out of denial and accept responsibility for your words and deeds. 

When you meet the energy of the Sorcerer with humility, this destructive power transforms into grace, grace you can use in service to the higher good. Perhaps it’s time to make amends. Do it. It will set you free from the shadows and let you step into the Light.

Shaman Energy Card Reading for Week of 2020/11/02

So, let’s get to the subject of this Podcast…

The Sun is power, brightness, energy, it is good fortune. It is the sun that gives energy to the world, to the plants and all living things, including you. It is celebrated for the beauty of its sunrise and sunset. It can also be destructive, a scorching summer day.

Right now, in North America, it is fall, mornings are dark and nights start early. Events that send us to our secluded space. To have a nap and draw in emotionally. But this card showing up now tells you your brightness, humour, and fun are needed by the people you know. There is too much seriousness in the world and the world needs you. It is time to get out and shine like the sun.

The day is brightened by the sun but that is only half of the 24 hours in a day. The night, brightened by the moon, which reflects light form the sun, has its value and its charms. Do not put all your energy into the daylight, keep some for the night. This is a message not to send out all your energy during the day and have nothing left for the night. Also, as you send out your energy do not compete with or be overcome by the energy for others.

The medicine wheel is a sacred hoop marked by the four cardinal directions honored by shamans and other spiritually awake people. As a circle, it contains the energy of the cycle of life, of existence for all people, all animals, and all plants. 

To manifest clear blue skies in your life, it is important that you take a look at certain aspects of your existence. Enter the medicine wheel from the south and reflect on how you are still clinging to events from the past. Continue to the west and notice which relationships are toxic and drain your energy. Step into the north and ask yourself: “Do I know my passion and do I show it?” End at the east, visualize how you want to live the next chapter of your life. It is up to you how much time you spend in each direction—minutes, days, or months. But when you are done, make sure to step outside the wheel and contemplate your journey.

Healing is important to you, start it NOW! Healing is not easy. Seek out a Reiki Master/Teacher, or a White Shaman to help and guide you. Now is the time to take a step forward, to heal and also recognize your life path purpose. Every journey of a thousand miles starts with one step, so says the Chinese proverb, choose your path and take that step, and do not deviate from it. Do not look down at your feet, look up and forward.

The witness observes. He or she sees without taking action. Action is the second stage of assessing your situation. Be in the moment and sense and feel the depth of your unique perspective. Then, and only then, take action. The outcome will be better for ourselves and for anyone who has asked us for help, and guidance. Sometimes we can be so still that we are a mirror for the other person. Then, through our presence, they receive their own answers.

Your guides have been with you since birth, they are here to help you if you will let them. They are your allies in all things. Because you reach out with your fingers and hands the impression is that you are doing, making things happen. This is not always true. 

It is time for you to get out of the way and let your angels and guides lead and unfold creations, wishes, and see your personal happiness in ways that you would not have considered. Find stillness and let the intent of your life path reveal itself.

Now is the time to be aware of what you can do, what you have been thinking about but not acted on. Now is the time to let change happen. Do not resist and do not let your egoic mind that resists change take back control. It has been leading you for too long. 

Now is the time for YOU to lead.
