What needs to happen?
Healing Action: Release unrealistic expectations or outdated intentions. Clarify what actually needs to happen. Send out positive, clear intentions or prayers.
Smoking Out the Truth
Mapacho tobacco is like a wise Grandmother.
She knows the nature of healing
and the secrets of how the Universe works.
It is her purpose to carry our prayers
on wisps of smoke to spirit for manifestation.
However, she will never spoil us or lie to us.
If we are lying to ourselves,
she will point it out to us in no uncertain terms.
Seek only the truth in your intentions for yourself and others.
Remember that what you put out comes back to you.
If you are perplexed by what the Universe is giving you,
examine your intentions for hidden malignancies or misunderstandings.
Release them from your consciousness through a prayer of Forgiveness.
You cannot receive what you are unwilling to give.
For best results, gaze softly at the Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the communication is more complete.

Further Exploration into Mapacho Tobacco:
You are surprised by the direction things are taking because you’re still too attached to your old behaviors. Mapacho medicine urges you to go further than you think you can, because your own thinking has stifled your full potential. If you think, “I don’t have time,” you won’t. If you put out “I can’t do it,” then that’s what you’ll get back. This is what they call karma, so if what you’re doing hasn’t been working, change what you’re doing.
The best approach is to find a completely new way of handling yourself. You’re breaking a pattern, so whatever you do, make sure it’s something different. Then put your creative energy into the situation and see what happens.
It may be time to examine and release some particularly harmful prayers or intentions, conditioned from the past. Society has gone through significant change and because of that, out-dated intentions from earlier generations or even past lives may need to be purged from your consciousness.
Like a deep well in your mind, you’ve unconsciously been drawing your experience out of antiquated, self-destructive intentions. Pull them out into the light of day for examination. If they no longer serve you, send them to the Light for transformation. Then determine what new intentions will serve your needs now. As you go through this process, remember that clear communication paves the way for clear results.
You could be expecting too much of yourself. Movement into the Light does not need to be perfect. Give yourself a break. Intend to be kind and forgive yourself. Once you figure out where your misperceptions are, make the correction in your intention and a correction in the results will follow suit. Then get ready for things to change, both inwardly and outwardly.
