This is your 7th of 13 weekly channelled readings from my Medicine Song Oracle Cards™, along with the audio clip of the medicine song that matches the card.
The cards and the songs from my Medicine Song CD interact with each other to amplify the energy and experience for you. The cards are based on the Ojibwe medicine wheel the way I was taught by indigenous traditional teachers, and my own Medicine Wheel of Success system, as well as the 13 Grandmother Moons of the lunar cycle and the 28 days of each Moon cycle.
Your 7th reading is based on the song “Woman.” Click on the audio player at the top of this week’s blog to hear the clip and meditate to the healing art while you read the message for the week.
This Visioning Card is from the West direction of the medicine wheel, representing visualizing, dreaming, living your dream, emotions and water. The song “Woman” is an honour song for women, and about women gathering together to support each other.
If you’re reading this, there are 3 steps you need to be aware of and take.
STEP 1: It’s time to sit in the quiet with yourself and get clear on your vision.
One of the reasons the West direction cards have no words is to help you to develop your own intuitive gifts and allow yourself to see what is there for you. Sometimes it can feel easier to go to outside sources to help you know what’s going on and what to do next. Sometimes that is appropriate but the first step is going within.
Personally, I’m getting ready to bring a new vision to life, and that can sometimes feel a little daunting. Part of me is afraid even to allow the vision to fully unfold, but until I release myself from that fear, I cannot bring it to life.
Even for the smaller pieces of your business, like different projects or goals that you have, if you don’t go all in, it will not happen or if it does, it will not be easy.
Visioning is an inner process, and must begin within.
It is important to remember to get super clear on what you really desire before asking for that support.
STEP 2: Get Support – from the human and higher realms.
Once you KNOW what it is you desire, then you can ask for human support from your mentor, coach, spiritual teacher, friends etc. Even asking for support from the Universe needs to wait until you have that clarity. You can still ask the Universe and your guides – your Higher Realms Support Team – for help if you don’t have that clarity. Just ask them to help you find clarity.
This is why a visionquest is such a personal experience to be done alone, with your supporters standing by but not in the visionquest with you. You must dive deep into your true desires, so that when you work with your mentors and advisors, you are standing in the truth and understanding of what you want to manifest.
Let your desire and vision be your inner guide and your mentors can be your outer guides who support the unfolding of your vision and desires.
STEP 3: Know, trust and create the experience that all is well. Hold your vision steady as it grows.
The image is of a woman caring for her womb, for the new life about to be born. She knows that all is well and that this beautiful new life is fully supported. She is offering prayers and intentions to the baby and dreaming it into existence.
Nothing else is as important as this new life being fed, cared for, protected and loved while it is still inside the womb. The woman’s belly slowly grows as the baby becomes ready. Hmmm. This came up in my periscope reading today too… this question: If you were pregnant, you wouldn’t hold the baby in when you get labour pains, right? You can’t. It isn’t up to us when that baby will come. It is up to us to do all we can to support the new life and trust that even if we do not see the baby in our arms yet, it is real and it is coming.
Sometimes we may want to give up. Believe me, I’ve been there, even this past weekend when I was going through something that cut me deep emotionally. I still have more work to do to clear that old wound completely. We can get thrown off track and give up before the baby has a chance to be born. That doesn’t mean we give up on the baby, right? It’s the same with your business. It can sometimes feel like it’s never going to happen or like it’s taking so much effort, time, money and energy and why aren’t I seeing results from all this hard work?
Trust yourself. Don’t give up. The baby will come when it is ready to come. And if you’re just in love with the visioning process but not allowing that baby to be born… well, let me put it to you this way: Do you really want more, even harder, labour pains? Or would you rather just birth this baby and then be able to see the beautiful being you have created with your love?
Yes, I thought so. (:
All is well. Love yourself. Love your business – it is a living being that takes time to grow, nurture, love, support and bless. And when you take that time and are consistently there for your business, it will blossom and bring you and many others great joy.
Please share on the blog about what this reading means for you and your business.
See you next week.
