Shamanic Affirmations for May 2015
Deck: Earth Magic Cards
Card 1: Lightning
The stormy season is upon us down here in South Florida. With it comes the wonderful and awesomely terrifying power of lightning. Lightning is a very powerful tool in shamanic energies. It represents a massive discharge of ideal power emanating from the Universe to us. These energies are designed to recharge us, bringing us much needed fire and heat to move ourselves through the next while. At the same time, if we are not careful in how we channel this energy, not using ourselves correctly directing the energy where it should go, it can be destructive and turning our best intentions upside down. Learn to be the Universe’s lightning rod, and channel that wonderful powerful energy coming to you at the beginning of this month. You may find it useful in charting new courses and new paths.
Card 2: Winter Solstice
Reflection is the theme for the second part of the month. In Shamanism being reflective means you are turning one’s thoughts inward and examining your center core or being. This isn’t an easy task for most people to do. We find it hard to examine ourselves inwardly objectively. Mostly it is because we are our worst critic. Other times it is because we don’t necessarily like looking in the mirror. This time, your goal is to reconnect to your power totems and your spirit animals. As you work on this, you are to reimagine yourself reabsorbing their power throughout all of your being. I am talking about all 8 chakras (the 8th resides above your head and connects to the divine), your aura and your core.
Card 3 Crystals
As we move into the third part of the month, we are going to need to focus all of this new found energy and power into purpose driven activities. Find something you can channel this renewed purpose towards. It doesn’t have to be anything magnanimous. It can be as simple as recreating your personal sacred space in your life, room, workplace or self to reflect the rejuvenated you, the repurposed you.
Card 4: New Moon
The last part of the month is all about promise, the promise of a new path to be opened up for you to test the waters in. If you did your homework and recommitted with your spirit guides and power animals, and learned to become a good lightning rod to direct the Universe’s power for the betterment of yourself through constructive means, then that path will be pretty clear for you to see. If you didn’t do that homework, you can still work on it, and start seeing that path clear out before you in short time. That promise will be there for those willing to reach out and take it.
