Mystical Shaman Oracle Deck is where I pulled a card for reflection this upcoming week. The card I drew was The Vision Quest.
During the vision quest, one can face their fear, receive guidance, and meet Spirit Guardians or Totem Animals. When we feel stuck, or without direction, a vision quest can help by bringing guidance and perspective into our lives. We can face our flaws, and see our potential and opportunities ahead of us.
This week, try to spend time alone in nature and ask Spirit to send guiding vision to help you on your path. Spend this time being quiet. Watch and listen for signs. This could be the sound of a bird, the wind blowing through the trees, or a fish leaping from the river. Reflect upon what you hear and see. If a bird, insect, fish, reptile, or other animal appears to you, it may have an important message for you. Look up the spiritual meaning of the creature(s) that you see, for there may lie the guidance you seek.
This week, I drew The Blade from the Mystical Shaman Oracle Deck.
Representing the sharpness of the mind, body, and spirit, The Blade can be used either as a tool for healing, or as a weapon to injure. It can represent transmission of power, cutting ties from the past, or severing harmful relationships. The Blade can also be used in anger to hurt or destroy, such as being “sharp tonged” and saying something critical or hurtful.
This week, pull out your figurative blade and use it wisely. It may be the time to claim your power, “cut to the chase”, get to the point, and take decisive action. What cords need to be cut in order for you to move forward? If you are angry or overemotional, it is best to put The Blade away until you get back into balance.
I pulled The Holy Mountain from the Mystical Shaman Oracle Card Deck for the card of the week.
Mountains have been a symbol of power. In Greek mythology the 12 Gods and Goddesses resided on Mount Olympus. Pilgrims in Tibet circle ceremoniously around Mount Kailash in hopes of prosperity coming into their lives. The ice-capped Mount Ausangate in Peru is climbed to bring the starlight and fire down to the Earth.
This card depicts mountains with someone seated on the highest peak. They appear to be meditating. The sun is shining behind them and light is being drawn towards them.
This week take some time to retreat from the world to reflect. Go on your own pilgrimage. It could be as simple as talking a nature walk or sitting on the beach. Anywhere that you can be alone to quietly be with your thoughts and open to messages you may receive from your intuition, or your spirit guides. Meditate if you can. See the beauty, abundance, and potential around you. Commit to walk with love, compassion, and courage. Once you have received clarity, give thanks for the guidance you receive.
