I decided to pull a card from both of my Inspirational Card Decks I created (you can see them here). I figure practice what I preach, plus I really like them, they are so bright and fun. These are pulled totally random, but the colors and messages really seem to be a pair!
Luckily I love to journal. Sometimes I just write about my day, sometimes I vent, sometimes I just sketch. I often draw out a dream; I remember it better through visuals than words.
When I was providing energy healing sessions for my clients, I always encouraged them to journal. I got a lot of hems-n-haws, a lot of eye squints. Why is it so hard for us to journal? I think we have a fear from childhood that someone will find and read our "Dear Diary" entries. And that means being judged on our most inner and private selves. We have and need a fundamental right to privacy, and we need a way to extract, organize, analyze, remember, and remove some of the stuff in our hearts and minds!
So I encourage you to think of journaling as well, a chance to BE CREATIVE! No need to be formal, or even write in sentences. View the page, the screen, the recorder, the camera, the old fashioned flower press, as a way to give yourself the gift, and then others if you choose, the chance to see the beauty inside you. Or a chance to see what you have been struggling with.
We found a darling frog in our garage yesterday. He gave a great effort to hop away from us, but then made it to the wall and was exhausted. He was covered in dirt and dust bunnies from our garage floor, and was very dry. When I went to catch him he barely gave up a fight. I put him in my spare fish tank and added some de-chlorinated water and such. He just sat in the water and I swear I heard a little sigh of relief.
I had to go out for a bit, and when I came back he had nuzzled his way under the leaf I put in the tank and was just hanging out. My neighbor has a fantastic pond and waterfall in her back yard, and we are serenaded, sometimes QUITE loudly every night by the frogs already there. She said I could add him, and since he did not seem to be injured, I let him go in the pond. Lucky guy!
He went from being too dry and tired, his lovely green color dim, to a vivid green and active frog. So I of course had to look up what frog means, what his message was for me. Animals come into our lives like this to give a message, so I always listen!
Frog Spirit Energy
The darling and resilient FROG reminds us that our lives are ever changing. As symbol of transition and transformation, he is there to support us and lend guidance on how to be present for the changes we are to face. He is of course associated with the WATER element, although most frogs live on land as well, able to adapt to both. Water is for cleansing and renewal, and Earth is for grounding, so this too gives us the support of adaptability.
The FROG appears as a symbol in many cultures and the most common themes are:
And of course... I will now make a needle felted version of him! Coming Soon!
