Riding the Tiger!

Here I am riding the tiger!!  Thanks to my friend Mark Gilliland who made me this amazing mandala about the transition I am in!  Check out his site at www.imagemaya.org.

There is a crapload of information contained within this mandala for me!  It is a like a tiny microcosm of all the messages that I need to hear for the transition I am currently in.  There are layers upon layers of symbolism in here for me.  Mark did a shamanic journey and brought back the images, and I journeyed on it further for my own information.  I’ve only begun exploring it, but I was so excited and wanted to share it, that I wanted to post it.

Since this is an image with intensely personal messages for me, I won’t publish all of the specific information for me, but I did want to share some of the more general meanings and themes that came out.

- Right now I am borrowing the tiger’s “power” (my coach’s vision of me) as I go from the beginning of intuitive work (East) to being deeper grounded in my intuition (West – feeling).

-The images of Raven and the Moon, indicate that I have to rely on who I am really am, and my deepest intuitive instincts to take me where I am going.

-I got confirmations from all of the animals about how I will feel in my body, when I find the right “work” to be doing.

-I am supposed to keep observing, to see what “can’t be seen”.

-I can call upon ancestral family wisdom when I need it, it will be all around me to call upon.

- I must pay attention to the “smallest whispers” of my intuition.  This means I have to follow-up on all suggestion and signs to me, to get to where I am going.

-The best “work” for me at this time, will utilize my intellect and my intuition.  Only when both are in balance will my full potential be realized.

-I have to ground myself fully, in order to get the best use of my intuition.  This means I have to balance my base chakra and bring it into alignment with my third eye chakra.  This means I will be doing alot of exercise, eating and hanging out in nature.

-I have to open up myself to receive what is coming to me.

Anyways, as I said, there are many more layers I can explore.  I also know there are a ton of messages in here, related to past lives I have had.  How exciting!  Something I can explore and explore and explore. 

Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I did.

Love and luck to you,

  1. Oh how cool is that!! I want one! (Bookmarks Mark’s site pronto!) Very cool that you know what each piece represents. There’s so many pieces of it, too. You could be working on that for a lifetime.

    Just lovely. And yes, I will agree 1000000% that your skills are sharp and you are way in the zone. Love it. (and you)
