I have been resisting the recommended meditation practice. After my workout today, I decided to indulge for as long as it felt right. It turned into a two-hour meditation session. Midway through, an image appeared in my mind. I could see myself walking away. On my left foot was a leopard print loafer. Comfortable and stable. On my right was a metallic pink shoe which looked as though the heel was broken off. I was forced to limp and drag the right leg behind me.
I interpreted that image to mean that I am beginning to step into my original power but I am still holding on to old ideas of myself. Based on the pink, shiny shoe perhaps those old ideas are based on childhood experiences.
What makes this very interesting, is that not long ago I decided to having a shamanic soul retrieval session in which my spirit animal is revealed to me. Mine is a leopard which is represented by a Jaguar in the totem animal dictionary.
The Jaguar’s medicine includes seeing the roads within chaos and understanding the patterns of chaos, moving without fear in the darkness, moving in unknown places, shape shifting, psychic vision, facilitating soulwork, empowering oneself, and reclaiming power.
When the jaguar bounds into your reality it is asking you to go within, to release your fears, to heal your emotions and to awaken your inner sight. When you come out of retreat the jaguar will be there awaiting you. If you choose to follow her lead, she will guide you into the underworld where the secrets of life and creation are to be found.
Enjoying the journey,
