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

how to seek the truths of nature, how to relate to Great
Mystery's creatures, and how to observe the obvious in
Lawrence has always been a kindred spirit with animals. Now through trance meditation and intuition he communicates directly with animal spirits to find out what is going on with them. Sometimes these animals become channels for other spirits with messages or guide signs to his journey or the journey of the people they live with.
