Are you listening to your heart whispers? Heart whispers are the little flutters of inner knowing, sometimes a gut instinct, that make you feel truly aligned and living in your purpose. It takes practice but dang when the messages come through and line up clearer than you could have imagined it proves that you can trust yourself.
Believe it or not I live a lot of my life in my head. It takes conscious effort for me to step into my heart, make decisions from my heart and listen to my heart whispers. I really started to listen and honor these whispers more than ever when I quit my government job 9 months ago to step into my dream career of being an entrepreneur & helping people. I feel like I can trust and listen to these heart whispers without question and more clearly when I am in nature and connected to nature.
These whispers guide you to messages that can’t even be made up. So here’s my story from this weekend.
I had a free, non-committed Saturday, meaning I could leaning into what ever I felt like doing/being that day. So I leaned into whatever would unfold for the day, surrendering all expectations. My morning started with laying in bed watching the sun fill the prairie sky, doing a whole body healing assessment on myself because I could feel my body was imbalanced in some way. I’ve been feeling very distracted, numb, uprooted and foggy the past week so I honored what my body was leaning towards. There have been many thoughts crossing my mind if this is where we are meant to be right now, on this land, in this country, on this path, etc. I gave myself a beautiful energy clearing and detected many nutritional imbalances which just means to consciously be consuming some animal organ meats, vibrant coloured fruits & vegetables and seaweed to top up my mineral stores.
I then did some research and listening on Lemuria because it keeps crossing my mind. Fascinating stuff. These 5th dimensional beings are already here which confirmed many things I have been seeing and feeling in my dreams.
I was then called to take Nova for a walk by the river valley in Fort Saskatchewan, which is the best grounding medicine for me. Driving in there was a rainbow, on our walk there was a sign of a Blue Jay (this always represents spirit for me, especially my Grandmother), on the way home I was seeing soooo many triplicate repeating numbers (sign of alignment for me) and just as I approached our house I seen 16+ elk RIGHT in our back yard. Elk are magnificent animals; majestic, beautiful, elegant creatures. I did a full stop on the road to capture and take in their beauty. Given the contemplations I had been experiencing about feeling uprooted and questioning if we should be on this land, I instantly knew this was a sign, that we are meant to be rooted on this fertile ecosystem, here in Alberta. I didn’t need to question that anymore. It’s like we have a sanctuary in our back yard with the amount of wildlife that passes through. That in itself feels like such a gift. I proceeded to pull into the drive way and quietly run into the back yard to see them right behind the tree line. Watching these 16+ elk run into the field I made quick calls to them as they stopped and just starred at me. I blew them a kiss to thank them for the message, “we can live here together!”
I came inside and felt called to open my computer to start writing. But just as I tried to turn my computer on, I had a thought “pull an animal medicine tarot card”, I bypassed it this heart whisper and clicked the power button. It did not turn on. I clicked the button again and it still didn’t turn on. So I thought “ok well played” I will listen and pull a card.
So I sat with the tarot cards setting the intention to connect with the animal that would provide me with the guidance and message for my highest good at this moment. I spread the cards out and hovered my hand over the cards feeling for a difference. One in particular felt very hot and almost magnetic. There was another that felt similar out a bit more weak. I quickly muscle tested myself asking if I needed to pull the first card and the answer was yes. When I pulled the card I burst out into laughter. It was the ELK!!!
According to the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams & David Carson, elk medicine comes into our life to teach us that pacing ourselves increases our stamina. Finish the task at hand before taking on more. Elk have a curious warrior energy. Outside of mating season they honor the company of their own gender, symbolizing (in my case) sisterhood and community. Discovering the strength which is gained from loving the gender that is your own. Allowing yourself to feel the energy of the warrioress through the larger group. The elk is also telling us to look at how we are holding up physically to the stresses of our life and to pace ourselves to maintain an equilibrium of energy over the duration of the journey. “Vitamins and high energy foods may be one solution along with personal quiet time for replenishment”. How fitting given my immediate need for more nutrient dense foods.
I feel so grateful for these messages helping me to ground back into my purpose and feeling rooted again into tending to this land, building community, harnessing my feminine warrioress energy and pacing myself through the journey.
In sharing this, it is a reminder to listen to our heart whispers. If I would have overridden these callings from the beginning, I would have blocked these profound messages that came through. Never be afraid to ask for guidance and signs to help in your journey.
