Heron medicine is the power of knowing the self by discovering its gifts and facing its challenges. It is the ability to accept all feelings and opinions without denying any emotion or thought. Heron flies over those who are unaware of who they are and where they belong in the world. Gently dropping a blue feather to them, Heron asks that they follow their intuition and begin the empowering journey of self-realization.
If the great Blue Heron has flown into your cards today, it is urging you to dive into the watery world of feelings to seek your truth. From The Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams & David Carson
“It is the ability to accept all feelings and opinions without denying any emotion or thought.” This is what jumped out for me and it is a pretty tall order if you think about it, but a worthy goal and something to strive for.
Blue Heron was the card I selected this morning during morning meditation. This bit of the reading is for the upright position but the card was upside down and it was the only card in the deck that was in that position! SO, the contrary message is to not do too much self-reflection as it can lead to self-obsession and too much criticism. It is reminding me that wholeness can not be attained in one deep dive but that we must also resurface for air!
I liked both messages, and can say that lately I’ve been feeling the need for a deep dive into old stuff that still needs to find expression and to be released.
It is fortunate that I have some very good friends in my life that help me to see things when I need to, and remind me of tools I have but had forgotten. It is also my joy to offer that to others, along with personalized ceremony and Flower Essences to assist in those shifts we all need to make from time to time. It’s what makes us human. As human’s it is our nature to crystallize in our thinking and it is also in our nature to grow and change but sometimes we need a little help. If you’d like to schedule a time to talk to me, to see if there may be a way for me to help with a transition or time of change….let me know and we can get you on the calendar!
The time is fast approaching for our Sun-Moon Dance and just the thought of being in the Arbor once again makes my heart sing. The dances that our teacher Joseph Rael gifted us with have been instrumental in some major transformations in my own life and if you are curious about the dances – let’s talk! Our dance this year is April 12-15th. You may feel the heart call to Dance or support as a kitchen helper or a Dog Soldier, there are many ways to be a part of something that is almost beyond description and a true gift to us personally and to All the People. Ours is just one of many Visioning dances that take place around the US and around the world so if we aren’t near you, there may be another dance that is a better fit. If you let me know of your interest, I can check and see.
