This card was made today in an attempt to find the committee member who leads me to plunge in out of my depth so often. The little cards on the upper right are council cards that I've already made and major guides for this one. These two are Council as One and Gracious Communicator.
I've been adding in appropriate little versions like this most of the time though this is the first card I've blogged with them. I was guided to do this - my guides like me to acknowledge them not just as council members but also as actively guiding various aspects - and it does seem to help.
One of the advantages of working digitally is that its very easy to simply scale down an image to 15% and include it.
I am One who plunges in where fool's fear to tread. I am Coyote.
I am One who regrets opening her mouth and does not cope well with having coyote as a totem animal.
I am One who feels that I am drowning in this pool of self-induced emotion.
I am One who looks to help from my guides. Council-as-One and Gracious Communicator please help me to speak appropriately, to keep on telling the truth but in ways that communicate more effectively.
In shadow, I am One who doesn't realise when I'm about to put my foot in it. Others see it coming, but I do not.
In shadow, I am One who tries to laugh off my faux pas and makes it even worse.
In shadow, I am One who wants to play dead once I've danced the coyote dance.
In shadow, I am One who reminds you that you've plunged in many times and survived; often reaping huge rewards from your daring. You have thrived on baptisms of fire. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water.
I am One who would like you to take a deep breath before you plunge in - its so much easier to survive underwater with full lungs!
