Journeying - Panther has shown his face

Upon journeying the other night, the black panther showed up. I've been doing a lot of ego work lately - and my specific question during my journey was, "How can I be more confident about my spirituality?"

The black panther teaches us to 'take off our mask.' Such a brilliant message for what I'm currently experiencing. Although I believe in my spirituality and I accept it myself, I haven't always been open about it with the public for fear of rejection. Rejection is the fastest way to destroy the ego - hence it's also a very good way to work on your ego.

Although I think the black panther is a beautiful animal - it also instills unrest in my soul. A kind of nausea infects my stomach when I look at him. I researched why I have this feeling about the black panther - and it's due to the fact that this particular spirit animal is trying to teach and instill his knowledge upon me. We almost always have this sort of reaction to a spirit animal when there are lessons to be learned from him. I have the same feelings about scorpions - but they show up often for me while journeying (that is a totally different post - I'll share more about him later).

In conclusion - I've decided to heed Panther's advice and 'take off the mask' of anonymity that I've been living behind. I vow to speak my truth from this moment on. What do I have to lose by being truthful and honest? The answer is nothing. Those who resonate with me as a person will stay, and those who do not will leave.


Take the road that is best for YOU

Just a little inspiration for you guys today. Never be afraid to take the road less traveled. I've done this most of my life, and I can say that I don't regret any path that I've taken. Some of them lead to not so fun things - but for the most part - these things helped shape who I am as a person. I look at them as learning lessons that make you stronger. They have also taught me that I can do or deal with anything life can throw at me.

Take the road that is best for you. Take the road that inspires you. You won't be sorry.

Change is the only constant in life

I used to beat myself up over the fact that I'm not one of those people that does one thing amazing. You know what I mean, artists that only paint, seamstresses that only sew, or lawyers that only 'Lawyer'. What I'm saying is that there are a lot of people out there that focus intently on one skill or trade - and all the rest of the stuff in their lives is just that - the rest.

I personally have always been multi-talented. I sew, paint, blog, create videos, cook and post to most social media sites (daily). I don't necessarily focus hardcore on one talent - rather - I do all of them at once. Allotting time to each task or talent.

I've come to realize that one of my personal global gifts is being The Magician. I possess the inherent ability to manifest things easily and quickly. Easily changing the direction of my journey, and honestly, I'm okay with that because I never feel stagnant. There is always something new to 'build'.

Once again, my whole life is up in the air. I'm quickly manifesting things to take place of the old things that no longer serve me. It feels good! I've come to believe that if something is no longer serving you - you should let it go to make room for that which does inspire and light you on fire. Hey, I'm a poet and didn't even know it.

I keep drawing this card from my beloved Magical Unicorn Oracle Deck and I feel like it's constantly reminding me that I'm on the right path. That the things that are no longer important to me are no longer needed for my personal journey.
