Creating a shield for awareness

in the native tradition a shield represents the true things that belong to us…it lets us become aware of those things and through this awareness we can place outside of that circle everything that keeps us from the nurturing and flowering of those gifts …it gives us the focus for what we need to attend to and what we need to let go of..

….we can connect to this practice in a simple way.¬† By making a circle on a piece of paper… while seeing it as a Medicine Shield…write down all you are deeply desiring to have, do, and experience…let it come from deepest place possible…include all the things that give you joy…this sets up boundaries to allow only those chosen experiences to be part of your life…

it is also up to you to pay attention to how you let this leak out….it may be you keep too busy saying yes’ to others demands or that you do not remain clear of what belongs to you or another…

But the shield as you bring it close to your heart will also speak and bring out its own sweet fruits into your life…

I offer this as Blessing’
