Pathfinder

Jul 30th, 2011 Posted in Medicine Cards | Comments Off

Wolf…
Teacher,
Pathfinder,
Moon-dog of my soul.

Howling,
Singing,
Teaching how to know.

Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as individualistic urge. These qualities make Wolf very much like the human race. As humans, we also have an ability to be a part of society and yet still embody our individual dreams and ideas.

The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the moon is its power ally. The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Baying at the moon may be an indication of Wolf’s desire to connect with new ideas, which are just below the surface of consciousness. Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and life.

Did You Stop…?

Jul 28th, 2011 Posted in Quotes | Comments Off

"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions. When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence?"
-Gabrielle Roth

Sacred Tears

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief…and unspeakable love.”
-Washington Irving

Embracing the Unknown

Black Panther

Oh Midnight Jaguar…
Wash me with your courage
And steel me with your grace,
So I may know the value of
The void of time and space.
Teach me all your lessons,
How to face the dark unknown.
Then let me bravely leap
Into the shadows all alone.
