Frogs Message to Clear the Muddied Energy

Frog's Message to Clear the Muddied Energy

I love oracle cards and using them as a tool for guidance in my life. If you’ve been following my blog for awhile I believe you have a sense of that as I love sharing what I discover along the way.

Because of my love of animals and continuing to learn what I can from their wisdom, animal oracle cards are ones I turn to often.

Today I chose to use the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson to draw a card before my yoga practice. As I shuffled the cards I asked what I most needed to hear today and Frog card was the one that presented itself.

I’m concerned about a health issue with Gidget which I just learned of yesterday when I took her to the vet. Right now I’ve opted to wait a week or two to see if anything changes before making a decision on what to do next.

While I don’t want to specifically say what it could possibly be as there is a 50% chance it isn’t, I’m working on myself of not living in a place of fear around this concern, so I can make the best and right decision for Gidget. So, alas, I have some inner work to do.  🙂

So Frog’s message is what I needed to hear. In part Frog says:

If Frog hopped into the cards you chose today, its “ribet” may be calling in the cleansing you need. If you were to look at where you are today, would you use any of the following words to describe your condition: tired, overloaded, harried, frustrated, guilty, itchy, nervous, at a loss, empty, or weakened?

If so, take a break, and allow yourself to bathe in the waters of Frog medicine. This could mean a long, relaxing bath, disconnecting the phone, yelling “stop,” or taking in deep, cleansing breaths.

The key thought is to find a way to rid yourself of distractions and to replace the mud with clear energy. Then replenish your parched spirit, body, and mind.

Decisions are best made from a place of clear energy and a process I began yesterday afternoon. With Frog showing up today in the card reading, it is another confirmation of what I need to continue to do.

And so it is.

Update:  Five minutes after I shared this post on my Facebook page, my friend Dawn shared this photo of her new little pup, Deshka, resting with her frog toy this morning. Coincidence?  Nope. Frog is definitely talking to me today. And how about that Deshka? Could she be any cuter?!

My Spirit Animal White Wolf Shared Her Name with Me

Ever since I began the planning for my Animal Wisdom SoulCollage® Workshop, which I’m facilitating this Saturday at my home studio, I’ve had white wolf visit me on several occasions. She first came to me two years ago in a guided visualization during a challenging time, encouraging me to continue to let my heart lead the way for my life. 

It’s not always been easy, as life can be, and as you try to not let the doubts or belief’s of society fill your mind. As I’ve been working on another workshop, this one to be online about working with our dreams, I had white wolf come to me again. 

It was yet another guided visualization that my friend, Dawn, who will be presenting the workshop with me, that I saw white wolf in the visualization Dawn did as a run through. She didn’t appear at first, but it was after seeing a variety of colors swirling around me and above my head in greens, purples, and pinks (almost like the Northern lights!) that white wolf appeared next to me on a bridge.

So many good feelings flooded my body when I saw her! Then the next day I happened upon a documentary, The Snow Wolf Family and Me, about a man who lived with a family of white wolves for three months. It’s a series, so I can hardly wait to watch the second episode. And shortly after that I came across a very unique commercial about… yup, you guessed it….wolves. 

Then two nights ago before going to sleep I asked white wolf to guide me in my dreams and help me to remember them, as that can be a challenge for me.  Before I drifted off to sleep I asked her what her name is not knowing if anything would happen.

I heard immediately, Laiola. Isn’t that so pretty?  It feels so fitting! This morning as I sat in meditation for fifteen minutes she visited me yet again. I really feel like I’m beginning to know her and it is so comforting to know she is here with me to help me in this earthly life.

I’m increasingly fascinated by how we can connect with animals in what is sometimes defined as the non-reality world – but truly a world where we can find many answers for our lives if we trust in it and practice going there in meditation and in our dreams.

Mr. Squirrel Had a Message for Me

Mr. Squirrel Had a Message for Me

Sitting at my desk in my writing cottage late yesterday afternoon I watched out the window as Mr. Squirrel climbed from the window box planter, up the birch branch I have as decoration, and scored some peanut butter I have smothered on a pine cone hanging from a nub of the branch.  Which, ah-hem, Mr. Squirrel, is supposed to be for the birds.

The next time I looked up, there he was looking in the window at me.  I glanced at the pine cone. It was empty. It didn’t take much to realize he had an important message for me:

Hey Lady!  I need more peanut butter!  Hurry!

This morning when I pulled up the blinds in my bedroom with a perfect view of my writing cottage there on the deck railing sat the empty pine cone.

Thanks Mr. Squirrel for going the extra mile to take the pine cone down for me to re-fill it.

I hear you loud and clear!  But alas, you shall have to wait. I’m fresh out of peanut butter.
