Native American Medicine Cards

Native American Medicine Cards are a form of healing and divination. To understand the concept of medicine in the Native American way, one must redefine "medicine". The medicine referred to with these cards, is anything that improves one's connection to the Great Mystery and to all life. This would include healing the body, mind and spirit. This medicine is also anything which brings personal power, strength and understanding. It is the constant living

of life in a way that brings healing to the Earth Mother and to all our associates, family, friends and fellow creatures. Native American medicine is

an all encompassing way of life., for it involves walking on the Earth Mother in perfect harmony with

the universe.

Our fellow creatures, the animals, exhibit habit patterns that will relay these messages of healing to anyone astute enough to observe their lessons on how to live. Each lesson is based on one major idea or concept and for the sake of simplicity each animal on these cards have been assigned one of these lessons. In reality, each animal in creation has hundreds of lessons to impart and all those lessons are powers to be called upon.

This system of divination is one tiny aspect of the process of teaching a person h

ow to be intuitive, how to seek the truths of nature, how to relate to Great Mystery's creatures, and how to observe the obvious in silence.
