Creating Joy and Abundance – Journaling Exercise.


I’ve been focused on manifesting lately. The energy, the dreaming, the seeing, the feeling and the beliefs that allow the dream to come or stop it in its tracks. Low and behold the Armadillo has pranced his lovely teaching across my path today.

The armadillo says, (from Jamie Sams deck)

“A clue to how to proceed is to make a circle on a piece of paper and see it as a medicine shield.  In the body of the shield, write all that you are desiring to have, do, or experience. Include all things that give you joy.  This sets up boundaries that allow only these chosen experiences to be part of your life.  These boundaries become your shield that wards off the things which are undesirable to you.  The shield reflects what you are and what your will is to others on an unconscious level.”  (Pg 149 Medicine Cards book).

Armadillo teaches us about boundaries, not just physical boundaries, but boundaries of the Self.  Do we create time, space and boundaries for our own fulfillment and connection?  This is usually the first thing we toss when we get busy or down, but it is the most important.  It feeds all of our other connections, our energy wells, and all of our relationships and experiences of life around us.

As you complete your medicine shield on paper, pin it up somewhere where you can see it regularly.  Decorate it with images or collage your shield.

 

Ask yourself and journal….

  1.  Am I honoring the time I need for my personal joy, fulfillment and connection?
  2. How am I doing this or why am I not?
  3. How can you start each week carving out and planning sacred times of joy for yourself?  What do you want to do? Fun wise? Soul wise? Connection wise? Creativity wise and how and where and when can you do it?

I hope you use the medicine of our friend Armadillo and create some boundaries, time, focus and commitment to you and the joy you want in your life.

It is done 😊
