Welcome to another week of power animal readings! Your power animal card for the week is designed to help you get some guidance and spiritual insights into the energetic flow of your week.
How This Works:
Below you’ll see a picture of three cards. Above each card, I have placed a crystal to help guide you in picking your card. Take a few deep breaths, let go of any stress or worry, focus on the image, and pick the card/crystal combination that you felt most drawn to.
Once you have been called to a certain card, down below click the link for the card and crystal you picked. This will reveal your card along with guidance for your week.
Here’s what I ask you do after you get your reading revealed.
- Share in the comments what card you got and how the guidance hit you.
- Ask questions if you have them!
- Share this your friends using the links below.
Left Card – Blue Kyanite – throat chakra, divine messages, high vibration communication
Center Card – Green Moss Agate – grounding, abundance, new beginnings
Right Card – Malachite – abundance, creativity, protection
(Interesting Note: This week I pulled the cards first and then pulled the crystals randomly from a bag of small tumbled stones and placed them with the cards. The deck was definitely shuffled, and everything was pulled at “random” as usual.)
Wolves are pack animals who make up the largest member group of the canine family. Because of their pack mentality and highly structured social order, wolves are able to travel and hunt up to 13 miles per day. When their packs are migrating they can travel 100 miles or more in a year. All of that is possible because of how they can work together as well as how they respect the territory of rival packs. A territory is chosen based on the availability of food in an area. A single wolf can take down a deer but a pack can take down an elk in one try.
Wolves also stalk their prey. They will watch and learn the understand the patterns and habits of the animals they hunt. They need to have this precise knowledge of the animal and wisdom of the terrain because wolves aren’t fast. They move, at most, about 28mph so they need to be exact in their attacks. They use their sense of smell and hearing, both of which are heightened, in order to strike at the right moment. When working with their pack the use their highly trained and refined communication skills, specifically their howls and “chatter” sounds, to talk and plan moves.
If you connected to Wolf this week you’re reminded of two things…working with others can be a time saver and bring bigger rewards than working alone…and being exact in your communication is the key to effectively working with others. Take the knowledge that you gain from talking with others and apply it as workable wisdom this week. It’s time to get things done and make things happen, but only when you willingly partner with others will you see things really get moving.
Dog is back for a second week in a row, this time moving to the center position with Green Moss Agate. When this happens I get asked often if the meaning of the card changes week to week or if there is something about the message that is intensified. Well…yes and no and maybe…lol. It all depends on whether or not this is your second week with this power animal as well as what messages I’m getting from them to pass on.
If you want to revisit last week’s message about Dog, you can go here for that. I’ll keep this week’s message short because it does play on the back of last week’s a bit. So check that one out as well.
This week if you connected to Dog, it’s time to look at what loves and loyalties have you grounded right now where you are. This could be a good thing, you may have found reasons to plant roots somewhere and that could have helped bring a stabilizing force into your life. Or, on the other hand, it could be holding you back. Are you doing something, connecting to something, or committing to something out of love and loyalty that is expected or one that has been genuinely earned from you? Take time to get more clear on the “why” behind your reasons for being where you are and being with who you’re with. And then, above all, be honest with yourself about whether or not you need to keep honoring these things or not. It’s OK to admit things have changed and your positions have shifted…have love and loyalty to yourself as well!
Grasshoppers are one of the most invasive of insects and one that many farmers work hard to keep at bay. Moving around in swarms, grasshoppers can eat up to half their weight in a single day which in these large swarms, can quickly lead to the destruction of entire crop fields in days or weeks. On their own, one grasshopper can’t do much damage but in a group, they are a force to be reconned with.
The big thing that we think of grasshoppers for though is literally in their name, hopping. Grasshoppers do have the ability to fly. They can have wings, but admittedly only use them in emergency situations. Their legs are incredibly strong and act like catapults to propel them into the air. They have large flexor muscles that build up tension like rubber bands in their hind legs. When the tension is released their knee joints act like springs. On an average jump, a grasshopper can go a little over 3 feet at a time.
This week, if you have connected with Grasshopper, you’re asked to consider taking a leap of your own. What is something you’ve really wanted to do but have found yourself stuck on? Where have you felt your tension building but you haven’t actually released it yet? Now is the time for leaps of faith and jumping into things without a huge plan. Have your eyes on the place you’d like to land and then just go for it.
