I have used Medicine Cards for many years. I gave my original deck away a few years ago, to a friend who I felt could use them, and I used a smaller deck. Last year, I found a brand new set of Medicine Cards at a thrift store, and I’ve been pulling a card every now and again, for both myself and privately, to assist in prayer for my own friends and family. I usually think about the person I am concerned about, pull a card, and place it next to their picture. I’m sure I don’t need a card, but it’s nice to have something to look at and remind me to hold them in the light when I see the card next to their photo. I don’t “worry” about the person. Instead I send the energy of the medicine in the card to assist them in working through their own difficulty.
Today I pulled the Eagle for myself. I love eagles.
Eagle Medicine helps me to remember the greater spiritual picture and to recognize my connection to all that is.
