This is your 3rd 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 3rd reading is based on the song “Shine”. 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 Visualization Card is from the West direction of the medicine wheel, representing water, dreaming, visioning and emotions.
If you’re reading this, you’ve been toning down your light, and right now, you’re sick and tired of doing that. You might be feeling a little (or a lot) emotional. Your Inner Rebel has been poking and prodding at you from the inside of her cage – your rib cage – and she wants out NOW.
You may have spent a lot of time in this lifetime/dimension/reality – and most definitely in others – being criticized or persecuted for being too much, too loud, overwhelming, too powerful and for some of you, just downright scary. You’ve freaked people out with your power and that has freaked you out too. You did nothing wrong. All you did was be you.
It doesn’t feel good to see people react negatively to us when we shine our light. Often that’s what stops us from really bringing out our fire in our businesses. People who are not at home with shining their own light can get uncomfortable when they feel light shining out of others. That’s because you’re shaking up their inner status quo.
When you shine your light, you will begin to draw people to you who are craving that experience.
So how do you deal with other people’s negative reactions and emotions as an entrepreneur?
You’ve got to shine your light anyway. The more you tap into and express your inner sacred power, the more attractive and magnetic you become to those ones who have a sacred contract to work with you in some way in this lifetime.
By the way, when you do shine your light more and more, and you grow your confidence at the same time, you become less and less susceptible to other people’s “stuff”.
On the Shine card, the hills are dark in the foreground because it’s just coming around to dawn. The sun shines in a multitude of bright colours just beyond the hills. It might feel right now like you’re a little bit in the dark – either not knowing your next steps or afraid to take them. You have awaited many dawns and then as the sun has risen and fed your own inner sun, you could feel the desire to bring out more of your power and expression but instead, you toned it down to feel safe.
When the sun rises every morning, it’s like all that darkness just disappears and suddenly you can see clearly in front of you.
You can feel the sunrays beaming down on you, warming and feeding you.
Imagine if YOU are that sun, sending your rays of light out to those ones who have that sacred contract to work with you. Imagine they are the ones who find you. Imagine that those ones who can’t handle your power drop out of your awareness and in some cases out of your world. Imagine those ones who are a little uncomfortable but attracted to your light, with a curiosity and desire to have that experience for themselves… they come knocking at your door wanting your services.
Know that your too-muchness is actually exactly-enoughness for your soul connections. You being You is how those sacred ones will find you.
BUSINESS TIP: Before you head out to your next networking event or just before your next sales conversation with someone, take a moment to imagine your inner sunlight shining out from your solar plexus to meet those ones who you are meant to connect with. Notice what happens during your conversations when you do this exercise.
See you next week.
