The Spirits chose MINERA, FLOW, and FAUNA from The Madame’s Bone Oracle.
MINERA: Gemstone and Crystal energy, healing through earth centered modalities
FLOW: Action, Receive, Trust, Forwards
FAUNA: Animal spirits, healing through connection with animals
Today’s message is to look towards the cycle of the Earth (MINERA) and the Animal Kingdom (FAUNA) as the way forward (FLOW). What does the Earth and the Animal kingdom do when a destructive force hits, barring any human intercession? Let’s use a forest fire as an example. First, the animals that can flee do so, getting as far away from the source of the destruction as possible. The forest fire wreaks destruction and havoc as far and wide as possible until rain, sand, or lack of a source to feed the fire stop it in its tracks. The Earth is charred and desolate for a while. And then…a bird flies over, dropping a seed or two in its travels. Tiny green life sprouts from the now potassium rich soil as a result of the ash. Once that green begins to spread and the rains have washed in most of that ash, the animals start trickling back in, a few at a time. They eat the plants that have started to proliferate, digest and excrete the plant matter, fertilizing the soil for the next seed that is dropped there, and the cycle continues. New life from destruction. How can you relate the lessons of that cycle to your daily life right now? We are in the destruction phase at the moment. What can we plant in the coming “nutrient rich soil” that you want to fertilize and grow in your life? Maybe that’s a stronger connection to others. Maybe that’s becoming more self-sufficient and self-reliant. On a more literal level, what can you plant that will benefit you, the Earth AND the animal kingdom? Growing plants that attract bees and butterflies is a great start (like dill, milkweed, and sunflowers)! Here in Florida, we take for granted with our heat that the growing season is so long, and forget that some of our northern friends are still getting snow. If you’re still getting snow, there’s nothing stopping you from germinating seeds in your window sill to plant when it starts to warm up, or from trying to grow from produce scraps (onions, garlic, potatoes, etc), or even researching what seeds can be harvested from produce you may already have in your house (squash, tomatoes, some grains like quinoa)! Start a compost bucket for your produce scraps and eggshells that, once decomposed, can be added to the soil when it’s time to plant in the ground (or pot). NEW LIFE FROM DESTRUCTION.
