This weeks “Monday Message” comes to us from the animal kingdom. I took to my “Medicine Cards ~ The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson…and this is the message that was sent to us:
Message (paraphrased): “Little Swan flew through Dreamtime, looking for the future. As Swan looked high above Sacred Mountain, she saw the biggest swirling black hole she had ever seen. Dragonfly flew by and Swan stopped him to ask about the black hole. Dragonfly said, “Swan, that is the doorway to other planes of imagination. I have been guardian of the illusion for many moons. If you want to enter there, you would have to earn the right.”
Swan was not so sure she wanted to enter the black hole. She asked Dragonfly what was necessary for her to earn entry. Dragonfly replied, “You must be willing to accept whatever the future holds as it is presented.” Swan looked at her little ugly duckling body and answered, “I won’t fight the currents of the black hole. I will surrender to the flow and trust what I am shown.” Dragonfly was happy with Swan’s answer and began to spin the magic to break the illusion.
Swan reappeared many days later, but now she was graceful, white, and long-necked. Dragonfly was stunned! Swan smiled and said, “I learned to surrender to the power of the Universe and Great Spirit and was taken to where the future lives. Because of my faith and my acceptance, I have been changed. I have learned to accept the state of Grace.”
So it is that we learn to surrender to the Grace of the rhythm of the Universe, and slip into Dreamtime. Swan medicine teaches us to be at one with all planes of consciousness, and to trust in the Universe and Great Spirit’s protection.
Swan ushers in a time of altered states of awareness and of development of your intuitive abilities. And a time of accepting the healing and transformation of your life.
The Swan card is telling you to accept your ability to know what lies ahead. If you are resisting your self-transformation, Relax…it will be easier if you go with the flow. Pay attention to your hunches and your gut knowledge, and honor your female intuitive side.”
from The Desk of MarDrag:
Well, yesterday’s inspiration post was about Acceptance…and here today we have another message about it…and the state of Grace acquired through that Acceptance.
We all face certain “Black Holes” in our lives. Things can happen and the future can “look” uncertain. We can be facing a huge void that frightens us because we do not know what will be presented there. And we resist entering it.
The thing is…is that, within that void can be wonderful things to fill our life up with. In there can be the very things we are looking for, pursuing, or don’t even know we want yet. And we will never find out unless we Relax….go with the flow…and enter the future trusting what we will be shown. We must go into the quiet and discern the rhythm of the Universe…as well as the unique rhythm of our own life…and surrender to it, to the flow. This does not mean we allow “anything” to happen to us…but that we focus on our Intuition to tell us what is right or not right for us.
We all have Intuition. Accept, with Grace, the wisdom of that voice. Accept, with Grace, where your Intuition leads you. And, Accept that you have more wisdom and knowledge about what lies ahead than you think…Trust what that knowledge tells you. Honor your Intuition, your gut instinct, and your female intuitive side.
Be as the Swan and enter the black holes with Grace and Acceptance…go with the flow…and you will come out of it with more Wisdom and Beauty than you ever thought you had.
