Osiyo frens – Still having technical difficulties (born of being a pre-tech generation person, har), so this video took quite a bit longer to finish than expected. This week, Grizzly Bear is our primary totem with Salmon taking Bear’s place up in the Sky overlooking the show.

Grizzly Bear is in the Northern home of the Grandfathers, reminding us to protect our boundaries and be fierce if necessary – but also be conscious of being too reactive. Maybe it’s not necessary to be so guarded. Grizzly is calling Way showers out of the cave, to begin looking at those deep fears that are keeping us blocked from moving forward with our new chapters. Check out the video to see an extended discussion of all the Medicine Cards in today’s great reading.

This week is a Bear Medicine week in the year of the great mother bear. This time is about balancing the masculine with the feminine, so Bear is sitting with the Grandfathers in their home in the Northwest this week. Joining this cast of characters are:

Alligator (Kek)



Salmon . . . along with Medicine Cards from a few other traditions.

Check out the teaching for this week at Bird Clan Messenger dot com – and join me for the extended discussion of the article, “Thunderbird Medicine – Changing our Perception of Sickness and Healing” here on Monday morning at 10 a.m. EST. https://birdclanmessenger.com/2021/01…​
