Good Monday Morning! We begin another week and our march full on into Spring. It was such a beautiful weekend that the animal kingdom called to me this morning for our message of wisdom to start our week. As I shuffle through the cards, one falls from the deck, and I turn to my book “Medicine Cards, The Discovery of Power Through The Ways of Animals” by Jamie Sams and David Carson. The animal who presented itself to share its wisdom with us today is:
Antelope: “Take Action, Time To Respond, No Procrastinating, Decide and Do It Now”
Message (paraphrased): “Antelope is an animal much revered and honored by Native American tribes. Because Antelope taught the tribes a valuable lesson. He taught them to take action. When they were cold and hungry, Antelope taught them to take action to care for themselves, even if that meant he sacrificed his own life for that lesson. It was all part of the greater Mystery of Life.
Antelope’s lesson for us today is…to Take Action. Antelope taught humans to honor the gifts sent from Great Spirit. Antelope signifies knowledgeable action, and the knowledge of life’s circle. Antelope also indicates a message of Higher Purpose. The only way to know what that is, is to start listening to your inner voice, and take action.
Antelope may also be telling you that a Decision to start is now necessary. The main element to procrastination is lack of conviction. To honor your chosen destiny is to honor your commitment to what you “proclaim” you are doing. Walk your talk. Have the desire to do something, make the firm decision to do something, then do it.
Antelope says, “Do it now! Don’t wait any longer.” Take courage, your sense of timing is perfect. When Antelope has bounded into your cards, the time is Now. The Power is You.”
from The Desk of MarDrag:
Well…I think the message is clear here…yes?
If there is something you have always wanted to do, if you have been considering a change, if you have a passion for something, if you question your Life’s Purpose and need to ponder on that, if you need to take better care of yourself…any and all of the above and more…then Begin by making a Decision to do something, anything, start somewhere…and then Do It. Making the Decision is the first, and very important step. But…a Decision with no Action behind it, leads us nowhere.
Even if there are sacrifices to make, it will all balance out. The thing is…is to start somewhere…even if we are not exactly sure where to start…start with something. Listen to that Inner Voice, the good one!, and listen for the messages. And then…Take Action. Movement always leads us to somewhere, and most of the time it is where we are supposed to go, or at the very least, somewhere we can learn more about where we are supposed to go.
Also, there must be something about this “Timing”. Which sometimes is everything. The text above says…”Take Courage, your sense of Timing is perfect”. That should mean a lot to us because it tells us we can Trust ourselves about this Action we need to take. Great Inspiration for getting started on what may be the most important Decision on our Paths. What will you Decide?
Take Action! You have the Power! Go ahead…Do It!
