Guest Post: Animal Revelation for Vexing Questions
Here Sarah shares a simple way to open your right brain and get answers to your most vexing questions:
This tool is rooted in the ancient spiritual technology of divination. For the ancients, similar tools or “spiritual technologies” were relied upon to heal, discover the best way to hunt, and ensure the survival of the community.
Techniques like this have assisted humans in making the best decisions by using “applied” synchronicity to access hidden meaning and information. And you don’t have to be a Shaman living in the Amazon Basin or the Mongolian plateau to use them.
This Beastie Revelation tool helps you access the (mostly) hidden subconscious aspect of your mind that is non-linear and non-logical and knows how to connect the dots to create manifestation shortcuts (otherwise known as synchronicities).
“Divination is not a rival form of knowledge; it is a part of the main body of knowledge itself.” – Michel Foucault
It is important that the question be laser focused and begin with how, who, what, why or where. Avoid yes/no questions, should questions, or questions that involve time specifics.
(Because yes/no questions limit the information received; there is no “time” consideration when consulting spiritual forces; and there is no judgment implied by the Universe/subconscious.)
Well formulated questions could go like this:
- What am I to learn from this diagnosis?
- How can I heal myself? (My marriage, broken friendship)
- Who is the best person to mentor me in my career?
My question, for example: How can I best show my children that I love them?
2nd: Set an Intention
It’s important to set an intention to discover very useful information from this exercise and receive an answer that is both truthful and helpful.
Next step is to notice and write down the next four animals that catch your attention – the ones that say, metaphorically “Hey, look at me!” Simply pay attention – from fruit fly to komodo dragon- write ‘em down.
They may be outdoors, in the window, on your email in box, in face book, on a magazine, a billboard, art, a movie, TV show – write down whatever animals you notice. This could take 10 minutes or an entire day.
4th: Free Associate
After you have four animals written down, next step is to free associate the first word that comes to mind for you for each animal. No censoring- even if (and especially if) it seems absurd. Remember its non-linear stuff we are accessing – so right hemisphere only please.
For example: my four animals were
– Ladybug and
– Domestic Cat
My free associated words for each animal were Strength, Sexy, Joy and Common.
Then you combine and free associate on the first two words. And repeat with the last two words.
Here’s my example again:
Strength + Sexy led me to Model
Joy + Common led me to Moment
So my final result is Model and Moment.
These two words are the clues to “how” I can show my children I love them most effectively this week.
As I sat with that result, I had an immediate “ah-ha” (or synchronicity):
“All I need to do is model (for them) being in the moment- which puts me “in the moment” and when I am in the moment with them- that’s all I need to do to show my children I love them.”
This result smacks of the Truth and I feel inspired already to get into the moment.
(My logical linear and somewhat sadistic mind might have said to take them to the Zoo or make cookies- ughhhh this is so much easier!)
If your results are confusing or unclear to you, set it aside for a while and come back to it. Also, asking a trusted friend to offer their interpretation (as if it were their question and their result) may be helpful. Please note that YOU are the only one who can “know” what it means for you – you are the guru.
Lastly, send out appreciation to the Beasties or Universe – whoever you want to thank for pointing you towards this information.
It’s perfect to be a skeptic with this. This work, as one teacher told me, is not for the “faithful”. The “proof” is in your vibe or how you feel after you marinate in the results.
By using this practice, you are essentially building a relationship with the Universe/the field/the divine/the Earth and Beasties/All that is.
Over time if you begin to verify there is validity in the information you receive, it will deepen your belief and you’ll begin to know on a cellular level that you are unlimited and connected to everything. Pretty cool!
