Here’s your 25th Medicine Song Oracle Cards™ reading, 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 25th reading is based on the song “Journey to Freedom”. 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.
The “Journey to Freedom” Affirmation Card is from the East direction of the medicine wheel, representing air, the mind and new beginnings.
The Affirmation: I am clearing my path by letting go of what limits me.
The song Journey to Freedom is all about letting go. It’s time to let go of something that has been limiting you. Something amazing happens when you let go of what limits you. You really can start to live in a state of internal freedom. It’s not like life all of a sudden becomes perfect and you become some kind of a magical cartoon character. It’s that you can develop a state of being that includes the energy of Freedom.
So how do you clear your path so you don’t get caught in the muck or trip over the clutter you’ve put in your way?
Step 1: Uncover the Block.
What’s your special brand of self-sabotage? What keeps you from moving into full-on self-expression? What makes that wall go up? What happens when the wall goes up? No judgement here, just clarity. You might notice nothing comes to mind at first, and if that happens, ask yourself this question: What would I lose if I were to stop holding back? What would I have to do that maybe I’m afraid of doing? What would I have to face in myself?
If you’ve got the opposite problem – tons of stuff coming to mind that keeps holding you back, see if you can hone in on what the root of all of those things is. They are all very likely connected by the roots to one block and once you clear the main root, the others will begin to fall away.
Step 2: Focus on Clearing One Block. No need to overwhelm yourself because that could trigger your ego to come to your rescue by creating more blocks. As the card this week shows us, shedding tears is a powerful way to let go and to open the heart to healing. You will likely have emotions attached to the block, so as you become aware of it and begin to take steps to clear it, those emotions may surface. This is where it gets sticky and many people just stop here. Oh well damn that hurts, so I think we’ll just avoid this altogether. Back to the same old same old. The ego and subconscious mind will often come up here and put even more obstacles in your path in their attempts to keep you safe from perceived danger. Oh oh. This is how we stay in holding patterns. It’s important to breathe and move through whatever comes up. You may need outside support, and if that’s the case, make sure you get it. Friends, family, mentors, healers, therapists, whatever you need, gift yourself with support. You deserve it and 99% of the time, you are not meant to do this alone.
Step 3. Flow. Feel or simply flow whatever emotions or pain are present. If there are tears, let them flow. If the body wants to dance through some anger or punch pillows, let it happen. Allow the joy, sadness, anger, hope, fear, love, passion, whatever is here for you to move through your body and energy system. This is where that support often comes in handy. Whether it’s fear of getting on stage or anger from a previous relationship or like I’ve just experienced, the range of emotions that grief brings with the loss of a loved one, when we allow our emotions and energies to flow, we invite more flow into our lives. Now is the time to energetically clear your path by allowing the emotional clutter to dissolve or float down a river beside your path. Then you won’t be tripping over anything or getting stuck in the muck. You’ll be able to find the path (trust your decisions) and walk on solid ground on your open path ahead.
More Flow = More Freedom.
Now I did say 3 steps but once you’ve got the flow going on, you’re going to need to move through any muck that remains on your path. In other words, if you’re still feeling like a donkey with your feet firmly in the muck and not about to budge, and you find yourself coming up with reasons to stay there, you might need some extra support. Want more help with that? I wrote a blog about that muck and what to do about it back in June right after speaking at the Canadian New Thought Conference and then listening to Rev. Michael Beckwith’s talk. If you feel like you need human support, and this is to do with you expressing yourself or really owning your spiritual calling, feel free to apply for an interview with me to see if we are a magical match to work together to help you on your journey.
Thanks & Blessings to you.
