I had a dream last night about this deck, The Mystical Shaman. Spirit was asking me to pull cards from this deck. That there is a story to be told to the collective within this spread. Read it, absorb it, feel it and embrace it. We are in the midst of a spiritual journey on a collective and individual level. Awakenings are happening on a grande scale. Spirit can show you the door, but YOU must step through the fear and open it. You will find love and blessings awaiting you on the other side. This is Your Awakening on Your Soul Journey, that in itself is beautiful, magical and POWERFUL. Shake off that old energy, that old you and step into the Self you have envisioned yourself to be. You do not have to wait for the future to become the person you’re destined to be. Now is your moment to become the Phoenix and rebirth yourself!
If you feel like the messages I give resonate deeply with you and you want to pay it forward, I’m going to leave my PayPal link below. If you would like to donate any amount, even $5, this helps me to be able to continue to do this for you all. I appreciate you all.

Despite being so little, hummingbirds are great journeyers, mortgaging between North and Central or South America to feed from the summer nectar. The gentle creature and be fiercely territorial to protect its home. Hummingbird teaches us to be gentle to ourselves, and protect our personal space. Hummingbird invites you to embark on your epic quest, bypass the dung pile of old pains and hurts, head for the flowers, and learn to trust the calling you hear ever so softly.
This mighty being comes to teach you stillness in motion and to trust your inner knowing that the sweetest nectar is assured. Failing to act when the moment is right can spoil your journey. If you feel your safety, comfort, or day-to-day survival are more important than saying yes to the invitation to explore the unknown, you will have to work much harder to achieve what is being offered to you freely now. Still your mind, even in the midst of your very hectic schedule, and heed the gentle voice that calls to you to test new wings.

The rhythm of the drum tunes you to the beating heart of the universe. It’s wood frame links you to the trees and helps you journey to the lower world via the roots and the upper world through its branches. The drumskin gives the shaman the power to the animal kingdom. Striking the drum calls forth the power of the thunder and the rumbling of the earthquake. The drum invites a trance state where healing and prophecy happen.

There is a natural movement of events in the world. You can see it in phenomena such as the tide, the ebb, and flow of oceans and rivers that rise up from the Earth and then flow to the sea. The symbol of Flow represents the effortless and natural movement toward a certain destination. It signifies an ability to gracefully move around obstacles and reminds you of the sense of allowing.
When flow comes to visit, it’s a sign that your intentions have been in motion. Now is the time to allow nature to run its course; you are being called to effortless movements and the path of least resistance. It’s like being within music, flowing within partnership.

You are called to be like a river, knowing the fulfillment of destiny is assured. Enjoy the ride.
From galaxies in this sky to diminutive shells at the beach, the spiral is found extensively in the natural world. Its shape in the form of a coiled serpent has been used since ancient times as a tool for growth and transformation. The spiral is a guide for entering deep into one’s consciousness and the unknown, and then extending far out into the heavens. It is crucial to surrender to this journey until the exhausted paradigm dissolves in the depths of the psyche and its energy is released to give birth to a new reality.
To renew yourself, you must shed your old skin. You have already done this, so do not keep scraping away at the old, but welcome the soft new skin that is starting to grow. Break the habit of working on your faults all the time, and let nature take its course. Know that a new skin feels vulnerable and scary at times. Trust the medicine of the spiral as it’s guides your journey of renewal.

You will be surprised at how things get resolved when you allow for all sides to have value.
