Most days, as part of my morning ritual I shuffle my SoulCollage® card deck (I’ve made 43 cards so far). I either silently ask a question about something I’m struggling with or just ask for whatever guidance I may need for the day.
As I shuffled my cards today I was thinking about how excited I am to facilitate a retreat with a friend at her horse farm this summer. And the card I pulled? One of the cards I made with horse!
This was a card I made when I was training to become a SoulCollage® facilitator in November 2014. During a meditation, Horse came to me in my heart, but only revealed part of herself. I was surprised by this and kept waiting for her to come into full view, which she never did during that meditation.
Perhaps it was a clue that down the road I’d be coming full circle with the medicine of Horse and co-facilitating this retreat I’m doing.
But it was the perfect example of what I just got done teaching in an online workshop with my friend, Dawn, and how our outer world oftentimes reflects what is going on in our inner world.
I also pick an animal card each morning to not only learn more about different animals and their teachings, but to have as my guidance for the day.
I recently bought a new deck called the Druid Animal Oracle Deck by Philip & Stephaine Carr-Gomm, so I’ve been pulling a card at random from this deck lately.
This morning my energy was feeling off because of a few things I am disappointed about. After shuffling the cards for a few moments the card I pulled was Fire Dragon.
Hmm, I thought. Interesting.
A few thoughts from the booklet about Fire Dragon that made sense for me today–
- Fire dragon brings courage and an increased ability to overcome obstacles and to find the energy to cope with life’s problems.
- Whether you have too much or too little energy, developing a harmonious relationship with Fire Dragon will help you.
- If you lack energy you may need to ask the dragon to give you a little more of the treasure he is guarding.
I placed both my cards on my altar in my writing cottage as reminders of the teachings.
As I signed on to check my Facebook account the first image I saw was this that said, “need a dragon?”
I’m really beginning to see more and more how our inner and outer world really is connected. I’m finding that it’s really just making a conscious effort more often.
I think too often we think there is going to be some big, flashing neon light telling us exactly what we need to hear — but what would be the fun in that if we were always handed the most obvious answers? Though yes, I, like you, do wish that would happen at certain times.
But I find that when I’m open to the subtle clues that come, it sure does make life much more magical when these happenings occur!
