Reclaim Personal Power Through Alligator Medicine
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
3. Alligator Medicine – the appearance of the alligator serves to remind you that you’re listening to the critical ego (both personal and collective) too much in this situation. Releasing the control it holds over us enables us to follow our true heart’s desires.
Are you letting your ego run this situation? If so, how is it trying to control you and what would help?
Healing Action: Move your fears to the side. Stop fueling negative tapes from the past and decide that your Soul is in charge now.

Further Exploration into Alligator Medicine:
A critical mind wants to block true guidance from your Soul. It could be an external influence or internal criticism that takes form through habitual patterns of self-hate, second guessing, self-doubt, or just plain contrariness. The inner critic doesn’t really care where an idea comes from or whether it’s helpful or not – it just wants to throw a wench into your thinking.
When Alligator medicine shows up, you can bet that some kind of mental construct that’s self-destructive to you and your plans is trying to take over. You are being encouraged to let it go before you stop yourself from taking Right Action again.
Perhaps in the past you haven’t believed that anyone was there for you. You might even have felt that others were out to get you. If that’s the case, it’s now time to respond differently. Your heart is beckoning you to overcome your fear of people, situations or circumstances and see the Love that is there. If you use this opportunity to develop genuine objectivity through faith, rather than criticism, true Soul guidance can make its way to you.
Perhaps you have unconsciously given others permission to harm you out of apathy for your own well-being. You might also examine if you have allowed someone to impatiently demand unrealistic perfection out of you. You can put an end to that behavior now. Move those critical voices to the side and stop fueling them. Ask for help from someone who is objective and trustworthy. Choose to be around kindness and be kind in return. You may need help in learning how to do this.
Look at the Circle and ask your heart: “Who or what do I need to put behind me?”
When you give it a chance, cruelty fades away in the face of kindness.
