I feel like using a pack of cards limits one to the animals given there, for one thing, and diminishes the importance of one-to-one communication,
whether it be through meditation or actual contact with the animal.
To me eading the mythology is a more important part once you do discover the animal, because it helps bring to life different aspects of that
"medicine" and to me at least it's facinating to make a cross-cultural comparison of how one particular animal is viewed around the world. The
whole idea of power-animals originated from cultures with strong oral traditions--why not go straight to the source?
I'm not telling you how to do it, those are just my thoughts and reservations.
Right on, that sounds perfectly appropriate. I was just trying to justify my method is all. No offense taken or intended, just a fellow loving
seeker. The only reason I replied the way I did, is because my interest lay as much in what I gain personally from it as how it actually works.
All boils down to belief systems, you just have to believe for it to work
it seems, no matter the approach, once initiated, the universe endlessly
unfolds itself revealing mystery after mystery unto the seeker, maybe thats what 'if you ask you shall receive' is partially about.
