Further Exploration into Alligator Medicine:
Someone’s critical mind wants to block true guidance from your Soul. Is it yours or someone else’s? It could be an external influence, but most likely it’s being fed by your own 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 wrench into your thinking.
When Alligator medicine shows up, you can bet that some kind of cruel mental or emotional construct is trying to take over you and/or your plans. You are being encouraged to let it go before you stop yourself from doing the right thing – 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.
If you’re reading this and none of it rings a bell, congratulations! You have overcome a major ego attachment. Go out and celebrate!
