March 22, 2016 Totem Card of the Day – Black Swan

card 6 black swan 1122

Today the Black Swan stops in to teach us we need to take the time to look at Self, inside and out and see the beauty that is ours.  To accept the I Am and to stop living by others expectations. To see the true beauty of our souls and their worth. To see that we have two sides…one that lives in the dark which we create, and the one that seeks the light to shine upon our face and souls.  So today it is about going deep inside and reach the dark side that resides inside us all. To honor that we always don’t want to be good, to walk in light 100% of the time. We need to understand it, balance it and honor it for it assists us when we come face to face with it and have to deal with it in a healthy manner.

The Black Swan brings us from the shadows to tell you that we all are unique and different, and sometimes it is that uniqueness that makes us stand apart from others. So today is the day to shine and let people see the different in you but in positives, in healthy ways, productive ways. So Today… stand in Sacred, stand in Beauty!

The Black Swan represents mystery and the unknown. It represents something that is alluring, perhaps even forbidden, it may even be something that we have thought or done in the past that we hid in our proverbial closets in order to not have to deal with it.. They remind us that there are two sides to all things, the Yin and Yang, black and white, polar opposites. They remind us to remember to know that dark side in order to balance the light within.

Black Swans help us to hone and strengthen our intuitive abilities and altered states of awareness. Bringing with them knowledge of new ways of thinking, breathing and teaching us to move with the flow of life for there is reason behind that flow. Wherever the Black Swan appears expect unexpected and unpredictable and be prepared for what will follow. The Black Swan does not mean good or bad, it is about paying attention as events unfold… events that seldom occur or have never occurred in our life prior.

They bring in the subtleties of life to our attention. Causing us to use the intuition we have to better understand our feelings and process them in a healthy way. The Swan itself teaches us grace through movement and longevity through inner knowledge. They remind us to look at the beauty of life, even in the darkness to see that ALL life is indeed Sacred.
