Seek the gift within the challenge.
Challenges are a necessary aspect of enlightenment. They allow us to cultivate the tools of trust, patience, insight and empowerment. Don’t shy away from these moments of apparent darkness; instead, turn and shine the light of consciousness upon them.
Shamanic traditions utilize the energy and lessons of Jaguar to assist with transformation. This power animal represents sudden and intense change. When we call upon her for guidance, inspiration or assistance, she walks by our side and helps us find the strength to address adversity in such a way that we are changed by the experience. Having faced the dark night of the soul, we emerge transformed.
Our purpose is to awaken and life will always provide the perfect circumstances to facilitate our evolution. Know that you have the tools to navigate whatever unfolds in your experience and recognize these moments as opportunities to discover your true sacred nature.
