What are your intentions?

This week’s Sacred Path Card that was pulled for “Wednesday Wisdom” is the Smoke Signals card.  It is the universal unspoken language of the Native Americans.  Whether it is the smoke rising from the Pipe that holds the prayers being sent to Great Mystery or the signals from a fire that are used as communication between scouts makes no difference. The intent is clear and the answers come in forms created by the Cloud People or in the heart of the seeker.

You need to get clear on what your desires are before you can take action. Take time to focus on who you want to be and what you want to accomplish.  Light a candle or start a fire and ask for clarity with a knowing that your answers will come.

Also, this is a time to pay attention to the signals you are sending to others. If you don’t like who or what you are attracting into your sacred space, take time to reflect on your underlying intention.  The energy that you put “out there” is a reflection of what you want to accomplish. Why do you need to say the things you say or act the way you do?  Does your ego need to get other people’s approval or attention?… Or is it to step into your truth? Dig deep to become conscious of your thoughts and feelings so you understand your intent. 

You have your own unique gifts and talents and are not “less than” anyone else.  It’s time to step up and “walk your talk.”  Move out of your head, listen to your heart and be the beauty that Great Mystery has intended for you to be.
