Facing Your Truth with Ant Medicine
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
10. Amazonian ants make slaves of their neighbors. This kind of Ant Medicine serves as a painful reminder of how the flow of love and nurturance can be blocked by “slave maker” patterns of attachment and control.
Do you feel that someone is trying to get you to do their work for them?
Are you expecting unreasonable help from others?
Either way, are you willing to set things right?
Healing Action: Free yourself. Detach from harmful energies or people. Let go of your prejudices and disentangle from negative energy, attitudes or obligations.
Northern Ant Wars
Beware the machinations of the warlike mind
as it breeds thoughts of ill-will towards self and others.
It is like an Amazon Ant
who intrudes upon his neighbors
and forces them to work as his slave.
He lives through control and manipulation.
The healthy spiritual ego
aligns itself with true north –
the direction of freedom and respect.
Release all thoughts that are
unmerciful, vengeful, and full of false pride.
Let go of all cords that are connected to others
out of pain, pity or disdain.
Healthy boundaries breed self-respect
and respect for others.

Further Exploration into the Slave Maker Ant Medicine:
Harmful thought patterns could be limiting your freedom. You are being asked to consider the true nature of freedom and whether or not you are allowing it. Stop buying into intrusive thoughts or intentions others may have for you and let go of your own prejudices.
Trauma from the past is dominating your reactions. You could be caught in the illusion of separateness, pretending that you are alone and what you do has no effect on others.
You may be caught in a co-dependent relationship where one or both parties feel that they “need” and cannot live without the other. Because of incorrect perception, your energy is blocked and twisted by the need to control your situation.
It’s time to choose freely, without attachment. Exercise free agency to take beneficial actions without allowing others to control the situation. As you look at the Circle, ask these questions and wait for a reply:
- “Who am I feeling sorry for in this situation?”
- “Who am I holding in judgement?”
- “How am I connecting with others?”
- ”How can I let go?”
Use this information to change your behavior and trust the energy of Love to bring you back into balance.
Allow others their own free will and autonomy by detaching from trying to control them. Choose freedom instead.
