48. River – River Medicine beckons us to calm down and flow with the river of life. When we allow this to happen, we can hear the truth of the heart and Soul more clearly. This provides balance for reactivity and hypersensitivity.
Are your senses out of balance? Are you feeling reactive or hypersensitive? Have you been knocked out of balance by a sudden change or shock?
Healing Action: Relax and adjust the volume on your senses. Get more present. See things as they really are. Clear up wishful thinking. Calm down to reconnect with your Soul and the flow of life around you.

Further Exploration into River Medicine:
River medicine is showing up to let you know that something’s not right with how you’re seeing things and experiencing the flow of life. Are you being driven by unconscious fears or attitudes in the current situation? The noise that comes from a dissatisfied ego could be preventing you from seeing a solution to your dilemma. The best way to change your circumstances is through learning how to respond to them differently. Don’t react; respond by cultivating inner peace and patience with yourself.
One way to do that is to gaze softly at the Circle and imagine that you’re floating on a calm, benevolent body of water. Take the time to breathe deeply. Once you feel calmer, you’re ready to open your senses to new solutions and gifts.
If you lose your bearings, come back to this place of calm and balance yourself again. Doing so will help you to accept the paradoxes in your life so that you can be open to new inspiration.
Elevated emotions are often caused by shocking experiences that knock the senses out of balance. Have you experienced such a jarring event? When that happens, you could get sucked into a panic or overtaken by fantasies and wishful thinking. It’s important for you to calm down and change the flow you’re traveling on before you do some damage. Pull your senses back into “Now” by tuning into your heart and Soul.
If you’re having difficulty making a decision, don’t rush yourself. Breathe. Ask from a quieter place and the answer will more easily be found.
You may be in a situation where it would be beneficial for you to take a chance. Nevertheless, it’s wise to calm yourself first and make sure that you’re perceiving things clearly. Look at the Circle and ask your heart: “Am I seeing things the way they really are?” You may not have a clear perception of where you are or what is truly going on.
Slow down and get back into the flow by asking the calm of the River, “What am I proposing to do?” Then, follow up with, “If I follow the course of that action, what’s most likely to happen?”
Continue your inquiry. “Is that in my best interests? Is there something that would work better?”
Follow the flow of cause and effect. You will find that clear and calm perception significantly enhances your happiness and chances for success.
