It’s that time again, to take it to the cards and see what energy is supporting us throughout the month of August. So far this year has been pretty spot on for me, and I admit that I draw the monthly card in anticipation to see what I can work with. Last month we welcomed the Horse Spirit that told us “freedom is yours” and this month Buffalo spirit steps forward with a reminder that the abundant universe will provide. Here is a deeper look according to the Spirit Animal Oracle deck from Colette Baron-Reid.
Buffalo spirit comes to you now to remind you of the amazing manifesting power of gratitude and the extraordinary potential available to you when you adopt a mindset of abundance. The ancient people of the Americas saw the Buffalo as a symbol of abundance because the herds roamed far and wide, and provided so many gifts – the meat, the hide, the bones. The tribes who hunted the Buffalo used every bit of them, wasting nothing, appreciative of the abundance. So, too, do you have many gifts available to you. Buffalo spirit appears to let you know that you are in a powerful time to manifest your desires – not by force or pushing but rather by following a natural path that rises up before you, trusting that there’s always plenty to around. Whether it be love, money, inspiration, or support, it’s all there for you to claim.
When you are grateful, you immediately align yourself with the truth that the world is rich and teeming with resources. There’s always more than enough, and you are always enough. At this time, you can expect all your intentions and needs to come into a form that is right for you. Your heartfelt gratitude is making you a magnet for miracles. Buffalo spirit’s message is to remember that you co – create your reality in partnership with spirit, so offer up your thanks and your prayers, even before you see conditions you desire – not just for yourself, but for others too – then you will quickly see the results in tangible ways. Gratitude has the magic to grow the good, so offer thanks and praise as you acknowledge all that you have and all that is possible.
Buffalo protection message:
When Buffalo spirit visit you with a message of protection he’s asking you to shift your thinking from poverty consciousness to one where you trust the universe will provide. Have you been falling into financial insecurity, worrying that there will be not enough money in the future? Have you been stressing and feeling sorry for yourself, worrying that because you have no romantic relationship now, you will never have one? Do you see scarcity where there is, in fact, abundance? Or are you comparing yourself to others and falling short? Self-pity, entitlement, fear, and lack, or all thought viruses did seduce you into darkness. Buffalo spirit noches you to make a gratitude list and be mindful of your thoughts at this timeHave you been falling into financial insecurity, wearing that there will be not enough money in the future? Have you been stressing and feeling sorry for yourself, worrying that because you have no romantic relationship now, you will never have one? Do you see scarcity where there is, in fact, abundance? Or are you comparing yourself to others and falling short? Self-pity, entitlement, fear, and lack or all “thought viruses” that seduce you into darkness. Buffalo spirit nudged you to make a gratitude list and be mindful of your thoughts at this time. Even if outer events have happened to challenge your beliefs in abundance, all the conditions are temporary. If you are suffering from the malaise of fear that you are impoverished, realize that it is only poverty of perception and perspective. Prayer, communion with your higher power, and gratitude coupled with compassionate, selfless service will snap you right out of it. Give to someone who has less than you. Be thankful for the tiniest things and say affirmations. Then you will remember abundance is the true nature of the world.
And there we have it, wishing everyone a wonderful August and a reminder that no matter how tough things get, the j inverse always provides. Let’s make it a focus to remember it this month and tap into endless possibilities.
