Personal Medicine Readings can help awaken you to your true spiritual gifts, and a greater awareness of your allies and greater resources in the natural world.
When we are in the throes of challenging situations, it can seem difficult to think that we have an inner and outer wellspring of resources we can call upon for assistance.
Personal Medicine Readings help you recognize your inner strengths, hidden feelings, and potential blind spots, while also revealing your path, and recommended courses of action.
Regardless of what your mind, or lower ego voices may be telling you, there is a vast wellspring of wisdom and guidance that can be available to all, however many unconsciously ~ for one reason or another ~ either lack trust, doubt, resist, or block it out.
I share some common signs that indicate Nature (Great Spirit/ God or your Higher Self) is trying to get your attention to help guide or comfort you, along with my various Personal Medicine Readings, below.
There is a longstanding practice among many indigenous populations, including the ancient Celts, the American Indians, and shamans from all around the world to look to Nature for messages in response to a query, or insight. Our early ancestors revered certain animals for their various strengths, and would call on, or connect with the spirit of whichever land or sea animal, bird, or specific tree that offered the character traits needed for a particular task, or for guidance or healing medicine.
The website, What's Your Sign, explains the symbolism behind the various animals most revered by the early Celts:
"Celtic animals as symbols, just like all symbols, signs or totems hold incredible power and fascination for us all. More importantly, animal symbols serve as reminders of qualities (i.e. strength, courage, patience) we all want to have. As reminders, these animal signs convey deeper meaning, and also provide us with an illustrative focus - providing an aid on our path to obtaining the qualities of virtue we desire."
Personal Medicine Readings are designed to guide you to recognize your own inherent strengths and gifts, and/or help you to receive the assistance from various 'animal or plant helpers' which bring their personal medicine to you, empowering you with all you need to handle whatever life presents to you.
They can help supply you with the very traits or virtues most needed in a particular situation, whether to help you deal with a pending court case, boost your confidence during a job interview, or to summon courage to make some needed changes to your relationship, or in any aspect of your life.
All of Nature is interconnected. The animals, birds, and plants want to help us forge a more cooperative relationship, teaching us how to live more harmoniously, in ways in which all can better thrive.
There are a variety of readings offered, depending on your needs.
The messages and support provided during any of the different Personal Medicine Readings can help you navigate challenges, offer support, protection, wisdom, courage, and guidance to align with your happiest and most prosperous life path.
Your soul knows that when you are aligned and in your 'happy place' ~ you are more open to receiving the bounty of gifts life has in store for you. You will feel lighter inside. Your vibration lifts. This helps you to in turn help uplift others. From a spiritual perspective, it's a win-win scenario.
Several cultures believe that a particular animal guide, or guides, comes to you at birth. If you never connected with it, it may no longer be around. However, you can ask to become aware of which specific animal guide has been with you, and encourage it to work more closely with you from now on.
Simply take time to meditate on your desire to connect, then, without trying too hard, just trust that you will in time receive a sign.
You may already know at a subconscious level which birds, animals, or specific trees for which you have always most resonated with, or have had extraordinary encounters with ~ a good indication that these helpers are already here assisting you.
One of the Personal Medicine Readings is a 9-card spread, done in a very meditative state, to intuitively draw your primary totem animals, each representing a different aspect of your life.
This is a sacred spread, typically only done one time, as they represent who you are, your gifts, challenges, and your personal medicine you carry in this life time.
Other spreads are available for seeking insights about new projects, relationships, or what you need for healing or resolution ~ whether physically, mentally/emotionally, or even financially ~ that can be done as often as needed.
Aside from your primary totem animals, any animal, bird, or special herb or plant can provide assistance at any time, for a variety of purposes.
The Personal Medicine Reading is done by email. The prices reflect emailed readings. A by phone, or private video reading is also an option for an additional $10 above the prices shown.
I take pictures of your spread, and email that along with the message in response to your particular query, or with respect to your current life path and potential direction.
The best way to do a Personal Medicine Reading is by preparing a question to ask, and determining the level of depth that would be most beneficial for you at the time of the reading.
Alternatively, you can ask for a general life-path / life-direction reading, OR a reading for personal self-healing ~ whether physically, emotionally, or after a recent separation or loss ~ and for self-reflection when you want to become more aware of your subconscious feelings.
"Our intention, as shamans and healers, is to begin a process for many people who have never understood their connection to our Mother Earth and to all her creatures. We hope to open a new doorway of understanding for those who seek the Oneness of all life." ~Jamie Sams & David Carson, authors of Medicine Cards
I often pull from more than one deck, to cross-reference, looking for patterns. In general, while I may pull more cards than indicated, you will receive an explanation of the amount of cards indicated at the minimum. I will email you an overview of your main cards, and any other insights, based on my own intuition, or if other cards were pulled.
You also receive pictures of the spread.
Contact me by phone or email to arrange for a Personal Medicine Reading. We will discuss your question or issue of inquiry, then determine which spread would be best.
"Each species of bird, flower, tree, and other forms of nature, has an organizing force behind it that is intelligent and connected to the greater whole, which is God."
~ Jane Toeirin in the Introduction of Bird Cards ~ The Healing Power of the Bird Kingdom
"In the spirit of the Wolf Clan, we as teachers have therefore chosen to devise a method of divination to assist each soul to find its personal pathway through the medicine of animals."
~Jamie Sams and David Carson, authors of the Medicine Cards.
The animals can help us to see how we may be using our own power in a balanced and imbalanced way, and how to self-correct.
You are here to liberate your true inner power and divine potential to help you live your most illuminated life possible, and the various messages and wisdom offered by Nature and the animal guides can be among your greatest resources to helping you get from Point A, where you are, to Point B, where you desire to be!
