1 ~ Coyote
The Coyote is the symbol of the sacred trickster, the one who provides detours for growth and understanding by ensuring that things don’t go as planned. The Coyote brings the energy of divine deception to set you free from the shackles of that which doesn’t serve you. Sometimes it appears that you will get everything you want, only to find that Coyote brings you the opposite of what you hoped for. The lessons offered by Coyote May at first appear confusing, but they are most sacred and always for your highest good.
If Coyote calls to you, this is a time to pay special attention to detours and disappointments, as they are true tests of faith. You have set your intentions and turned them over to the Great Spirit, yet you may find yourself lost and confused when it appears you are being led off course, off the path leading to your most cherished dreams and desires. Remember this; Coyote is a sacred trickster and may be leading you into challenges to ensure that you are ready to handle what you’ve set in motion. Great growth and understanding come to you when Coyote calls your name.
2 ~ The Medicine Wheel
The Medicine Wheel is a sacred hoop with the four cardinal directions well marked. It represents the cycle of life, the cycles of nature, and the circular pattern of our cosmos. It has been used for millennia in indigenous cultures to bring harmony and wellbeing to the village. It’s directions symbolizes the four steps the shaman takes to become a person of power and wisdom.
To manifest clear blue skies in your life, it is important that you take a look at certain aspects of your being. Enter the medicine wheel from the south and reflect on how you are still clinging to events from the past. Continue to the west and notice which relationships are toxic and drain your energy. Step into the north and ask yourself: “Do I know my passion and show it?” End at the east direction, visualizing how you want to live the next chapter of your life. It is up to you how much time you spend in each direction- minutes, days, or months. But when you are done, make sure to step outside the shell and contemplate your journey.
3 ~ Many Paths
All paths lead to Spirit. What you bring to your journey is what will determine if yours is a path of suffering, a path of wisdom, a path of bliss, or a path of loss.
You have outgrown your current situation and risk losing your way in your own backyard. You are being called to step out of your comfort zone. Respond now, while the call is still a gentle whisper. Even though the woods look thick and impenetrable, venture in and let nature guide your steps through the dark until you reach your destination. Remember, if you do not know where you are going, any path will take you there.
4 ~ The Council
The Council are the luminous beings who hold the collective wisdom of humanity. Know that their wisdom is available to you at all times when you live in a state of yes, in an unconditional relationship with life. They remind you of your place around a sacred fire, which has been reserved for you since the beginning of time. You will claim it when you own your inner wisdom.
The Council has a message for you, “Listen with your inner senses!” The handwriting is already on the wall, so look about you and you will discern its meaning. Do not wait for further signs; embark on the journey to love deeply, forgive sincerely, and dare greatly. Take the leap without requiring life to assure you of success.
5 ~ The Gatherer
Before we cultivated grains, we collected the wild bounty of nature. The Gatherer finds abundant seed, nuts, berries, and wild greens where the ordinary person sees only barren soil. The gatherer is the provider, the forager, and the gardener who collects roots and vegetables for the long winter when game is scarce. She does not hoard, trusting the bounty around her.
Look at the resources you already have close at hand. This is a time of abundance. Everything around you is ripe and ready for harvest. Banish the notions of scarcity that have limited your choices and colored your destiny. Pack your food for the winter, and start with low-hanging fruit that is all around you.
6 ~ The Smokey Mirror
The Smokey Mirror represents the aspects of what is implied yet cannot be immediately known in the world, the mystery of how things come together and how they fall apart without obvious causality. This symbol also represents the shadow of the human psyche, the parts of the self that one disowns. The Smokey Mirror can also represent a state of denial, or the inability or refusal to see the truth.
When the symbol of the Smokey Mirror appears, you’re invited to see beyond your own self. Acknowledge that, past the limits of your current ability to perceive, there is a vast interconnected world where events are orchestrated in divine order but challenging to fully grasp. Now is the time to trust that no matter what the current conditions of your world reflect, in the Hidden Realms all aspects of the human journey are celebrated: the beauty and the darkness, the misery and the courage. No matter where you are on your journey, know that some things are meant to be a mystery, which you are meant to understand only through experience. Take heart, for the Smokey Mirror will ultimately show you beauty and wonder once the fog lifts the distortion you see now.
7 ~ Spirit of Air
Clarity and expansive perception of life emerging. You’re being advised to see life from a higher perspective. Clear our mental clutter. Breathe. All is well. Do not be concerned; the cobwebs are being cleared away. Communicate your truth. Take care of details. Pay attention and don’t let things slip through the cracks. Take time to hear the truth of others. Spirit is whispering to you. Open your mind to see a situation is new light.
The Spirit of Air represents the mental aspect of your life; it’s the part that has under capacity to discern, analyze, organize, evaluate, and judge. Though seemingly subtle and unseen, air is composed of the most rarified energy fields, and we’re in constant communion with the vast Universe through our breath. The Spirit off Air carries the energy of change and transformation, inspiration, aspiration, mental clarity, freedom, perception, communion, and communication. The element of air also allows you to see situations from a higher perspective. This card can also indicate that it’s time to do some major clutter clearing and organizing.
One of the most direct and powerful ways to receive messages from Spirit is through the Air Spirit. The Cherokee people, and many other native tribes, believed that the winds were messengers sent by the Creator, and they carried information from the sacred realms. When you go outdoors, notice the movement of air across your skin. Whether it is the subtlest breeze or the powerful wind storm, take a moment to stop and listen. Get a sense of what messages it might have for you.
8 ~ Spirit Keeper Of The West
Transformation. Letting go of the old. Initiation. Illumination. Harvest. Gather your inner resources. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t go ahead. Trust your heart. Chaos brings positive change. Almost all change comes out of turmoil; Don’t be concerned if there’s confusion in your life. It will all work out.
In the medicine wheel, the West is the direction that symbolizes the fiery setting sun, autumn, the waning moon and the time of harvest, and the tumultuous years of teenagers in the human cycle. Out of the chaos arise illumination and transformation. In order for the new to ignite in your life, it’s necessary to let go of the old. Sweep away the debris. The spirit keeper of the west reminds us to slow down our rapid growth and harvest what we have attained. In the autumn, leaves are burned to make way for new growth. Release the dross in your life to make way for new growth.
Stand facing the west and the setting sun. Imagine that all limitations and blockages in your life are flowing from your heart into the sun; as the sun sets, it carries with it your cares and concerns to be transformed by its purifying energy.
9 ~ Sweat Lodge
Cleanse yourself: body, mind, and soul. Purify. Clutter-clear. Let go of objects and relationships that no longer serve you. Go within. Meditate. Talk to the Creator. Give thanks.
Sweat lodges are small dome structures covers with skins, blankets, or mud in which very hot stones are placed in the center. Water is poured over the stones so that hit steams arises from the rocks. Thus, the sweat lodge, with its hot steam, is used for purification ceremonies as well as a place to commune with the Divine.
