Spiritual and Totem Insights for the Day – the Ram

Today the Ram speaks to remind and teach us to step up to the plate and honor our commitments. even if they were ones that we promised to ourselves. Our opinions matter, our desires and needs matter. Yet often we will not step into the I am and be that person we are meant to be. Why you may ask? Well often we are taught from a very young age that others should come before us, that we should put ourselves last and serve others. But somehow the message got twisted a bit in the translation, for we have to honor and care for self… if we do not we are unable to be there and do for others.

The simple fact of it is we need to walk our paths sure footed, with honor and respect, honoring who we are as human and embracing all that comes with that journey we are on. So wake the Heck Up and put one foot in front of the other with precise and accurate positive placement. Make yourself strong and allow your soul to shine for all the world to see!

The Ram speaks to us of following our own truths, our souls journey and thinking outside the box. To take steps onto new paths and directions when called to but also to remember one must attain balance to do so, balance that occurs from respecting and honoring the Sacred, whether it refers to self or the Sacred around us. This will allow us to move freely and give us the ability to be our true self.

The Ram reminds us that having clear honest thoughts and insight will make us stronger beings of integrity. To not be afraid of what we find by looking in the mirrored image of ourselves, for we are human and with that said means we are all flawed.

It also teaches us that we can be tough when needed showing strength and skill at maneuvering through the obstacles thrown at us, but other times we need to remain in our spot to take care of what is needed with the highest of integrity. Look at self and answer with truth… are you really working for your highest good, or are you slipping and sliding through things not stopping to take that moment to be responsible and own your actions?

The choice is yours, but the Ram will guide us through it all, with head bent down hammering through the tough stuff to get us to that balanced spot on our ledge.

It is not enough merely to learn the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”
