So, I have always been interested in weather - and just finished a book on Weather Shamanism - but my results have been "meh." Mostly because I am new to working with, or wanting to work with the Weather Elementals - but recently I felt my heart open in a new way and yesterday was one amazing day of miracles that culminated with me asking the Weather for a bit of rain because we so needed it.
I have done this before but this felt different and yeah, wow.
I was working on my computer, the fan and AC blowing because the temps have been around 105 degrees all week. I heard this loud and odd noise but couldn't figure out what it was. I was looking out the window and the bright and clear blue skies when the noise came again and it sounded like sitting under a waterfall.
I ran out to the kitchen and it was bright and sunny and pouring rain. I literally ran straight outside and just stood looking up at the blue skies while being pummeled by rain. I was so happy and thankful and the plants and ground and myself just sucked up that moisture.
After a few minutes it stopped and I gave my thanks and went in to get dried off and I looked back through the patio door and saw a Thunderbird in the clouds. I grabbed my phone to take a picture and even though it was starting to pull apart by then I think it still looks like one.
I guess people could say it's easy to "see" anything you want - signs in the sky could be anything, but as a Shamanic Practitioner - seeing signs is important to understanding what Spirit wants to say to you.
For me, this was an invitation from The Thunderbird to work with it and I will gladly accept.
I had a very big dream the other morning - someone kept telling me that I had to Remember Who You Are and that it was my last chance to remember. (No pressure dream!)
What was frustrating was that I could almost remember - it was right there, but I couldn't grab it. After thinking on it when I woke up, I pulled some cards and they were pretty spot on as usual.
Card One I asked: Who Am I?
Star - The return of hope and healing
Card Two I asked: Why Am I Here?
Knight of Cups
Journey beyond the known to find my destiny (well that is sort of right on the money LOL)
Also a quest for emotional connection and that there is a danger in not pursuing my dreams - mkay then LOL
Card Three I asked: What did I forget?
Six of Swords
I need to leave behind the known and journey far away - there is no guarantee that what comes next will be any better or have greater promise but to have hope. (Star)
I also love how that card is facing back to the first two cards - as if pointing me in the direction of what I need to remember.
Moving past the known - be brave and have hope - journey into the unknown - there are greater benefits in moving forward than staying stuck. Can't argue with that.
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
