Dear Fortunica Family!
Thank you for being a part of our soul family. Each of us is connected to each other here, each of us is here to help each other learn and grow spiritually and I’m truly grateful for being a part of this journey. This month I am drawn to a new Oracle Deck. This deck is called the Native Spirit Oracle Deck by Denise Linn. I was drawn to the beautiful and mesmerizing imagery of this deck. I want to tell you a little about this deck. It is based on Native American imagery, especially their history and wisdom. In Native American Tribes, they have a shaman (wise man / woman) who may also be addressed as their Medicine Man / Woman. This person is relied upon to Divine the messages from the Great Spirit (Creator / God) through nature, dreams or even visions as they are connected to the inner sacred realms. This deck has imagery that is from their kind of divination. I connected very deeply to this deck and I hope the messages that it gives helps you in your life too. I hope that you have tried the exercise and affirmation from the previous week and have felt some healing and changes. This week we have another beautiful message from the same deck.
This card brings the message that you can be anything you want to be. Let go of attachment to your identity. See the world around you with a fresh perspective. Be malleable. Experiment with different ways of viewing reality. See the point of view of others, but don’t let it be in judgment of yourself. If you haven’t been able to manifest your dreams, maybe you need to shift the way you see the person or situation.
Your Native Spirit wants you to know – In earth based cultures, shape shifters had the mystical ability to transform into other forms of consciousness. It is said that these beings were not imagining that they were shifting into a specific animal plant or stone, they could actually morph into another shape. Just because most people today don’t think this is possible does not mean it’s not true. This card brings a profound message that your past does not need to equal your future. Simply shifting your point of view or your belief system can bring an entirely new destiny into being. This card does not need to be literally interpreted. It basically wants you to understand that shape shifting does not necessarily mean morphing literally into another being, it means that you have the power and the ability to change your life. If you’re anxious about your present, you have the power to make decisions and changes to resolve this anxiety, change your way of looking at the problem or the situation. Instead of sitting in one place worrying, stand, walk around, think of a way to solve rather than wallow in worry. Shifting to a problem solving attitude will help your situation and that’s what is the meaning of this card. Not only problems, it could be just your belief system. Many of us have allowed people’s judgments and perceptions to shape us. Have you ever questioned these judgments? Have you ever thought, “Why should I be this way just because so-and-so thinks of me as being this way?” This card asks you to shift your belief, take charge of your own life by shifting your perception. It will open up new pathways for you. And you have the ability to shape shift, not literally, but definitely in your perception and belief.
Exercise: To deepen your ability to shape shift, simply imagine that you are an animal, bird, plant, stone, etc. Make it as real as you can in your mind’s eye. Doing this exercise will help you exercise your imagination. This in turn will deepen your ability to shift your beliefs and limiting decisions. As mentioned above, question yourself, why have you accepted that belief from someone, why is it that you cannot let go, what is the worst that can happen if you let go, and so on. Realize that you are an infinite being, and you have a purpose here in this life. Allow yourself to open up and shift yourself to the positive vibrations rather than limiting.
Wish you a Shape – Shifting Week!
