Today's cards are from the Native Spirit Oracle cards by Denise Linn. Below you will see a picture showing three cards 1, 2 & 3 (left to right). Close your eyes, tune in, and see which number you are drawn to. I have put crystals below each card as you may be drawn to a particular crystal instead. Scroll down to the number and read the message that is meant to find you.
Card 1 Malachite

Card 3 Tree Agate
Card Meaning: Everything is falling into place because you aren't resisting the drift of the great river of life. It's time to let go. You're entering a period of gracious ease and flow. All is unfolding perfectly and with good timing. When you're in a state of flow, you aren't pushing the river to go faster, and you aren't swimming against it. Let go of the shore and enjoy the ride.
Your Native Spirit Wants You To Know: Rivers have personalities and carry energy, just as animals and plants do. From the Maoris to the Australian Aborigines, and to other native cultures throughout the world, it's believed that it's important to listen to the language of the river. If you aren't feeling the smooth currents of life, it might mean that you're trying to control the situations or that you're being self-critical or judgemental. The way to move into flow is through gratitude and appreciation, and by allowing others to support you. Heed the Native American saying; "It's best to ride the horse in the direction that it's going". This means that when the card Flowing River chooses you, you're being told to let go with the flow. If there is something or someone you need to forgive, this is the time. This is also the time to forgive yourself and just let go.
The Journey: As you shower and the waters flows over your body, imagine that everything is flowing in your life. Spend time next to a river or stream and watch the flowing waters; use it as a metaphor to let go and enter the flow.
Card Meaning: Be still, and take the time to move into the silent place within yourself. Locate your internal source of power. Meditate. Wait. Do not move forward until it feels right. Surrender to stillness. Do not take action. If you observe, rather than react, you claim your power.
Your Native Spirit Wants You To Know: From the vantage point of the sacred mountain, your power grows. In silence, you'll find your sacred witness. It is the dwelling place of your soul. In peace, seek and discover your truth. Move past the bustle and clatter of life into sweet quietude. If you're in pain, don't lash out; go into it until you find the source so that it can be healed. Resist the temptation to indulge in feelings of stress, urgency, and emergency. Your power is born in silence. This peace gives birth to your serenity. Seek solitude to listen to the voice of your higher self and awaken your inner wisdom.
The Journey: Travel to the peaks of hallowed mountains, and if you cant do this in person, travel in your meditation. Imagine yourself atop a high peak; you can see the world in all directions. Give thanks and offerings to mountains, whenever you encounter them. The Spirit of the Mountain will deeply appreciate your gift.
Card Meaning: Love is flowing to you and through you. No matter what an individual is saying or doing, love him or her anyway. Gather your inner forces; silently and secretly love deeply and fully, with every ounce of your being, even if someone isn't fulfilling your expectations. (It's easy to love people when they are reacting wonderfully; the true challenge is to love them when they aren't.)
Your Native Spirit Wants You To Know: Feathers in native cultures often represent a connection with the Creator. Birds often symbolize messengers between the two-legged (humans) and Spirit. This is your time to love and be loved. The love that you send out into the world comes back to you a hundredfold. There are times when the small concerns of everyday life need to drop away and be replaced by the majesty of your being....this is the time. Prayer feathers are decorated feathers that can be used for many purposes. In some traditions, prayers are placed into the feather - you can hold it to your heart or between your hands as you focus on your prayer and then tied onto a bush so when the wind blows, it carries the prayers to the Creator. Another kind of prayer feather is a decorated feather or decorated bundle of feathers that are used for smudging (sacred smoke) ceremonies. (The smoke is to cleanse the spaces well as carry your prayers upwards.)
The Journey: For a day, love each person you encounter. Imagine a golden ray of light from the center of your heart radiating to the center of that individual. Notice how great you feel by the end of the day.
