the Amazon have received healing
for their people from the Vine of the Soul.
This medicine teaches how to reconnect
with our spiritual selves and Nature.
She provides lasting physical healing
by addressing its spiritual source.
She shows us the truth about how
we have betrayed ourselves and our divinity.
She reminds us of who we are
and how we lost our identity.

Shamans Leaves

Clear the Clutter Out of Your Mind with Shaman’s Leaves

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

Shamans Leaves from Gifts from the Rainforest32. Shaman’s Leaves – when the mind goes into survival mode, it can pull progress to a complete stop. Shamans leaves shake out resistance and fear so that the journey can continue.

What are you afraid of?

What would you like to shake off? What mental confusion needs to be cleared away? What might help you do that?

Healing Action: The critical mind wants to control you through fear or panic. Do not abandon your efforts – persist. Sit up. Breathe. Shake it out! Now is not the time to give in.


The Shaman’s Leaves

On shamanic journeys, resistance is expected.
When this happens, the small mind
will think up every possible reason to give up
and retreat from your Soul’s journey.
The shaman then brings out his dried leaves
and shakes them in your face
for however long it takes
for the small mind to surrender.
These dried leaves contain yellow magic –
the courage to endure against all
manipulations of the mind.
See your fear for what it is.
Stay with it.
Endure.

Further Exploration into the Medicine of the Shaman’s Leaves:

You have decided that things are supposed to happen in a certain way and because of your limited thinking, you are about to give up. Don’t. 

  • If you can stop thinking so much and open to the possibility of different scenarios, the block can remove itself.
  • If you can open yourself up to new ideas the world will respond to you differently.
  • If you refuse, you remain chained to outmoded thoughts, habits and behaviors that will naturally lead to self-defeat and self-pity.
  • If you are waiting for a guarantee, you will just keep delaying the completion of your goal. 
  • If your mind is telling you that something should be happening in a certain way ask your heart: “According to who and how would they know?” 
  • If you don’t have much self-discipline, now is a good time to develop some. 
Shamans Leaves

Do you need to stop trying to force something to work out a certain way and just trust the process? Nature has a way of righting things on its own; allow this to work for you.
It could be that a recurring pattern of post-traumatic stress is blocking your mind and making it hard to think clearly. Pent up energy needs to be released. Let the Circle help your body do what it needs to do. Use your breath, rhythmic motion, sound and visuals to bring the blockage up and shake it out. Once the stagnant energy is released, allow your body and nervous system to calm down with slower, deeper breaths and softer, rocking movements.
Or
Early childhood and/or cultural conditioning is blocking your spiritual connection. Take the pressure off of having to be a certain way. Doing the opposite of what you think you should do is often the cure. Visualize a warm breeze blowing anxious thoughts up and out of your mind, like a little whirlwind of leaves.

Garden Medicine

Cultivate Your Dreams with Garden Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest

#44 Garden Medicine – The beauty of Mother Earth inspires and nourishes your heart. Cultivate your personal garden and grow dreams that will, in turn, support the Common Good.

Are you in your garden or someone else’s?

Is it positioned properly to be prosperous?

Is there something about it that isn’t right or needs to be tended?

Healing Action: Tend to the personal dream that lives in your heart by nourishing it with Love and gratitude. Live your own dream and protect it well.


The Sacred Garden

The gifts of Mother Earth are all around us
if only we have eyes to see.
This garden of life has nourished us throughout the ages
with oxygen, nutrients, sacred medicine,
and the sweet dream of how this planet could be.
The Earth’s beauty and life-giving richness
has been stamped upon and pompously disregarded by the ego,
because it is afraid.
Afraid to find out that perhaps, it isn’t
 really all that important.
That perhaps, we might be just fine
if we all gave up trying to control each other and share instead.
Have you forgotten your own garden –
the one that lives in your heart?
It has always been there, waiting for your return
if only you have eyes to see.

Further Exploration into Garden Medicine:

It’s decision time – time to get off the fence. Your ego is filling you with fear, distractions, confusion and double talk. Even worse, it has you focusing on all your problems instead of your blessings. Release your fear by coming back to the simple wisdom of nature – cause and effect, giving and receiving, activity and rest. Each one naturally includes the other.
You may have turned away from your divinity and allowed your ego to call the shots. It’s time to take back your true nature by reclaiming your true heart’s desire.
Did you lose heart when you bought into the ego’s idea that “the other man’s grass is always greener”?

Garden Medicine
Garden

To find out, gaze at the Circle and ask: “Am I satisfied with what I’ve got?”

If not, why not? Then ask: “Who told me I couldn’t have my true heart’s desire? Who said I wasn’t good enough?”

It’s time to take back your true nature by reclaiming your true heart’s desire. Release your agreement with whoever it was that put restrictions on what you can receive. Even better, release your agreement with dissatisfaction itself! 

Accept that when things happen within you, they can also happen in the world around you. That means if you come from a place of lack internally, you will tend to create more lack externally. Stop putting restrictions on what you can receive and allow natural abundance.

Your personal dream needs care and nourishment. When you appreciate what you have, you cultivate a mindset of true prosperity that can grow naturally without greed or avarice.

You are invited to use this Circle to help you visualize your personal garden where you can rest and nurture your dreams. While you’re there, remember the old adage, “…and as you sow, so shall you reap.” 

Look at the Circle and ask your heart, “Am I in my own garden?” If you aren’t, pull yourself back. If you are, look carefully and see if the landscape could use some tending.

Raccoon Medicine

Release & Re-negotiate Soul Contracts with Raccoon Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

11. Raccoon Medicine –Raccoon made an agreement to show us how to learn from our mistakes and misfortunes. By acknowledging the garbage we’ve been feeding ourselves, we become free to choose differently.

Are agreements creating conflicts in your life?

If so, can you tell what they are?

Healing Action: Release or re-negotiate agreements or Soul contracts that no longer serve you.Make new agreements that will support your highest good.


Bandito of the Jungle

Many ages ago, the Raccoon made
a contract with the humans.
He agreed to disguise himself as a
thief and trouble-maker so that
the humans would have someone to blame
for their misfortunes.
He agreed to do this until
the time when humans remember
that their misfortunes
are actually their greatest gifts.
It’s time to release your contract with Raccoon
and all those who have
hurt you or caused you sorrow.
Release yourself and make a grand feast
out of the refuse that has, until now,
been disdainfully tossed to the side.

  • You are blocking your own progress because you keep going back to past grievances and reliving them. Its time to release your attachment to misfortunes by letting go of the agreement to buy into them anymore.Once they’ve been released, look for new freedom and unexpected opportunities. When they show up, go for them.
    Or
    Pain and suffering is being prolonged because on some level, you are unwilling to learn from your misfortunes and apply the lessons to your everyday behavior. Perhaps the ego would prefer to blame others and is more comfortable by keeping you powerless. When you take ownership of your behavior, your personal power is returned and progressive action is possible once more.
    Or
    You are being warned to be cautious when making new agreements with other people. Make sure that you’ve done your due diligence and fully understand all implications of the agreement. Make sure the terms are beneficial to you. If they are not, can they be re-negotiated or amended?
    Agreements that are made from the ego’s point of view are filled with contradictions, obligation and trickery. Be sure that any agreement you make is something you would joyfully participate in.
    Or
    The purpose of agreements is to help us navigate reality and Raccoon knows that sometimes everything seems like nothing but a huge pile of garbage. He says, “I like garbage and you do not. How about if we work on this problem together?” Here are his tips for working agreements:
  • Working together effectively requires an agreement to do so.
  • The original agreement or Soul Contract naturally has the most potent energy and effect.
  • Participants in a working agreement don’t have to have the same point of view, however, having the same or similar goal is required for a successful working arrangement.
  • Sometimes the goals of individuals within a group get out of alignment. When that happens, goals need to be re-aligned by re-negotiating them.
  • If common ground cannot be reached, it may be time to let go of the arrangement entirely.

River Medicine

Adjust the Volume On Your Senses with River Medicine

Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:

River Medicine from Gifts from the Rainforest

48. River – River Medicine beckons us to calm down and flow with the river of life. When we allow this experience, we can hear the truth of the heart and Soul more clearly.

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 calm. Clear up distortions or wishful thinking to help you reconnect with the flow of life around you.


River Sings a Lullaby

Intuition and common sense are determined
by a balance between all of the senses,
both known and unknown.
Let the calm of the river
quiet your body, mind, and Soul.
Breathe deeply and allow homeostasis to occur.

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? Are you spending too much time with technology?

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.

River Medicine

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. Learning to do so regularly will help you to accept the paradoxes in your life so that you can be more open to common sense and new inspiration.
Or
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 breath and heart beat. 

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.
Or
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.

What Process Is Best for Me – Right Now?

Balancing with Plants SpiritsMany of you have asked,  “There’s so many Games and Exercises here in the Intuitive Learning Circle – how do I know which one is right for me?

Since we’re here to help you develop your intuition, it’s only natural that we would come up with a simple & fun way to decide – using your intuition!

First of all, it’s true that we have quite a few self-healing offerings, so below you’ll find a list of games that pertain to the Soaring Spirit of the Condor.

Liberate Yourself through Condor
Condor Medicine

There are 5 categories to choose from ~

I: Cosmos
II: Family
III: Environment
IV: Livelihood and
V: Self 

Each category has a selection of games listed underneath which are numbered 1, 2 and 3.

The first step is to take a moment and think about what’s going on for you and then look at Condor Medicine and ask your heart:

“What category would be most useful for me to look at now?”
Once you have the category number, ask yourself:
“Which number in that category represents the best self healing process for me right now – or is the best place to start?”

Remember to take the very first number that comes to you, because that is your Inner Wisdom speaking or your intuition. If more than one number comes up, write them all down in the order they came to you.
Once you have your number, scroll down the list and check out that process. You might be surprised at what you chose, because intuition doesn’t always makes sense at first. However, I suggest that you trust your first response and explore the exercise anyway. See if it pertains to your situation and feels right.
This is the intuitive way to determine which exercise is best for you right now!

Suggestion: Early on in your journey with Condor, go through Open Your Heart and Make Friends to develop a truly co-operative relationship!
