Cardinal Medicine

Posted on: July 31, 2016

Native American traditions hold the spiritual belief that every being and every element of the universe is inhabited by a soul, or consciousness. All birds and other animals are messengers from the Great Spirit, or sometimes called the Source of all that is. There are traditional universal messages that are inherent to each specific creature that appears to you, but the message is also strongly influenced by what you are doing and what you are thinking and feeling at the time of the appearance. “When the journey to wholeness is completed, the journey within it begins.” I was contemplating this quote from a course I am studying when a bright red cardinal caught my eye.

The desert comes to life as though brand new with all her wild flowers blooming, yet she is as old as the earth. This is a new chapter in my life.

Medicine Horse Way is a series of processes designed to help you become […] Read More
