Lessons of Acceptance and Receptivity from Oyster Medicine
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
What are you willing to receive? Is that in your best interest? Are you in the best position to receive blessings?
Conversely, is it time to stop tolerating an irritant and expel it from your home?
Healing Action: Open your heart to receptivity. Develop your ability to make something useful out of irritating situations.
The Pearl of Great Price
To openly receive is something that the
small mind has great difficulty doing.
It tries to force things to happen –
to control outcomes and future events.
It tries and tries, but never succeeds.
The oyster never tries to do anything, it just exists.
Because it exists, it has no need to resist.
Since it has no need to resist,
it openly receives without judgement
about whether something is good or bad,
right or wrong, wanted or unwanted.
If a grain of sand is washed into its home
it uses the irritation to create a pearl.
We would be wise to follow the oyster’s lead.
Accept the events in your life
and use them to nourish the heart and Soul.

Further Exploration into Oyster Medicine:
Your ego is dominating the situation. It’s trying to hide flawed reasoning and is busy thinking up excuses. Accept yourself and the situation as it really is.
Perhaps it’s time to discharge an irritant. Not everything is worth keeping. Accept what you’ve learned from the situation and let it go.
You are denying or blocking positive change. The sooner you release your denial, the sooner your difficulties will end.
Examine your attitudes and beliefs, especially those you feel justified in having. As you look at the Circle, ask your heart, “What attitude or belief is causing me trouble?”
“What am I not accepting?”
Then ask, “What would help me be more open here?”
Follow your own advice and you will see profound personal changes taking place.
