Connecting to your Power Animal with Medicine Cards
Have you ever wanted to find out more about your power animal? Many people use the Native American inspired Medicine Cards to gain personal insight and build inner strength.
Jamie Sams and David Carson designed the original deck with 52 cards representing a variety of animals from the butterfly to the bear. You may be wondering how this affects you. Each animal is associated with a characteristic and the information on the card provides a focus for meditation. Examples include loyalty for the dog and magic for the raven.
Even humans living in ancient times turned to the animal world for education and wisdom that transcends the human mind. Old legends and mythological tales speak of a time when animals and humans interacted on an equal plane and there were no distinctions between tame and wild. Animals communicate with humans on a daily basis by making their presence known and through movement and behavior. Learning to interpret the various signs can serve as a guide for daily life and aid individuals in developing higher perceptions with insight to true prophecy.
Medicine Card readings help individuals interpret the meaning of having a dream about a specific animal or encountering one in real life. The book Medicine Cards comes with a set of animal cards. The authors created a way to help readers develop a strong connection with animals and learn the lessons each one has to teach. By calling upon a certain animal, you are attempting to draw from the power and strength of the animal’s essence to help you on your journey through life.
Anyone who is having trouble connecting with an animal must practice patience and remember that the wisdom the animal has to share is multifaceted and may not be accessible immediately.
