Coming Home to the Truth with Lamb Medicine
57. Lamb Medicine warns us about the harm we do ourselves by being overly docile when dealing with dubious people and situations. Learning proper protection and discernment is essential to surviving outside threats.
Ask: Do you have inappropriate boundaries with someone or something that doesn’t deserve your trust? If so, what do you need to gain more awareness of?
Healing Action: Tune in. Bring your attention to a low vibration in your field. Consciously detach from it and break its spell over you.
In Search of Innocence
Something’s not right with a story you’ve been telling or listening to.
There are obvious signs of a big lie
and yet, for some reason, you’re choosing to ignore it.
Don’t let your denial lead you any deeper into danger.
Perhaps you’re so used to someone else making decisions for you
that you’re perfectly comfortable putting up with
whatever nonsense that’s being dished out.
Perhaps you don’t think you’re important
or strong enough to stand up for yourself.
True innocence is never without courage.
Let Lamb nudge you out of your sleepwalking trance before you get pushed!
Further Exploration for Lamb Medicine:
You’ve gotten lost in some form of deception and your bubble is about to be burst. Stop now and find your way back to the truth. Although difficult, no progress can be made until you’ve pulled the wool out from over your eyes. Lamb knows that it takes true courage and innocence to question your own assumptions. To find out what’s happening, ask yourself a few simple questions:
- Am I caught in a no-win situation?
If so, it’s time acknowledge the mess you’re in and return home to your center.
- Am I listening to lies that someone else is spinning or am I lying to myself?
A wolf in sheep’s clothing is still a wolf! Forgive yourself and reclaim what has been lost.
- Have I lost track of my fundamental needs or what I need to do take good care of myself?
What’s wrong with this picture? What have you misunderstood about the situation? It’s not too late to pull the fuzz out of your head and stop playing the sacrificial lamb.
- Am I bewitched by a need to follow the crowd and look good?
Look beyond the glamour and glitz and tune into your heart instead. There is no bigger lie than society’s demands about “perfection and being right.” Fear of the big lie causes us to run away from the truth or dig in our heels and deny its very existence. Whichever extreme we choose – we lose!
The truth lives somewhere in the middle. Luckily, the natural world is more merciful than the human mind. Maybe it’s time we stopped being so hard on ourselves?
Think about your situation more deeply. It may be that someone you relied on has changed their priorities and you need to wake up to the reality of where this trend is leading. Are divergent goals pulling you apart? Take courage and re-assess your needs. Sometimes intentions need to be re-aligned in order for a project to succeed. What does common sense tell you to do?
You could be a member of a group that has changed directions in a way that you never signed up for. Think about a recent interaction you’ve had with this person or group. Do their actions meet up with their words? What doesn’t make sense about this situation? If something’s not right, you can feel it in your gut. Pay attention and be ready to take affirmative action for your own good.
If you’ve placed your trust in someone or something that you shouldn’t have, courage would have you admit your mistake and innocence will help you deal with the natural consequences in the best way that you can. Listen to your Soul and you will be guided to a path of safety.
