Just One Voice is finally up and running. It has only been a couple of days and my audience isn’t very big yet. As I said in my first post, I have been pondering this for several months. I knew I had something to say, even if I was not exactly sure what it was. Now my first post is “out there,” and the feedback has been so good, so heartwarming. I know I am on the right track. I know this is the beginning of something good.
Most mornings I pull an oracle card to see what the Universe has to tell me. One of my favorite oracle decks is the Mystical Oracle by Alberto Villoldo, Colette Baron-Reid, and Marcela Lobos. I love the artwork by Jena DellaGrottaglia and the messages resonate with me. This morning the Wild Woman card came up. As I read the message I knew I wanted to share it here.
When the Wild Woman dances into your reading, she reminds you of the essence of authenticity and freedom. Divested of all social constraints and cultural conformity, the Wild Woman holds up a mirror to your essential self – the true essence of who you are and who you’re meant to become. She is a reminder of the bright light within each of us that gets dimmed by the restrictions imposed upon us by the expectations of society. She reminds us that in order to be fully present to life, we must uncover that light and let it shine brightly, regardless of the perceived consequences.
When the Wild Woman comes to dance in your reading, you’re invited to shine brightly and to know that your true self is being called out to engage in the world. This is a symbol that your long-held dream is beginning to take root and wants to be expressed. Your authentic self doesn’t fit in a box; it needs the freedom to shine. It’s time to have courage and step into the light. The Wild Woman says: “Shine brightly, dance with abandon, be yourself, and let the Great Spirit decide what happens.” You’ll be happy you did.
These words spoke to me so strongly this morning, and I hope they speak to you, too. We all need to shed our fear of what people will think. We cannot be afraid to be who we are and to speak our truth. It has taken me a long time to find the courage to step out and let the world see who I am. I don’t beat myself up about the time it took, either. It’s OK to take the time to figure out who you are and why you are here. To heal the wounds that need to be healed and find your courage and strength. We all need to uncover our light and let it shine brightly. There are dark forces afoot in the world, but remember: light dispels darkness. We have to believe in our own power and join together if we are to restore balance in our world. I am Just One Voice, but many voices together can become a powerful force for change.
