Every month we will pull an Animal Medicine card specifically for the audience of SoulKu. Each animal exhibits certain habits, has an essence, or portrays a personality trait that can be relayed into messages about how to live life.
The monthly card will help guide, amplify, and define the energetics of your month. If you are reading this blog, this medicine is for you. Tune into the Animal Medicine to help you move through whatever is presented to you.
Master Skunk Animal Medicine to know your worth.
Ok sure you can laugh... Skunks are funny, and anything that requires a tomato juice bath to rid yourself of its smell doesn't seem very sacred. We get it. But trust us on this one...
How incredible is it that skunks are protected from prey because the prey is so repelled by the skunk's horrible smell. And should the prey interact with one they would become a walking olfactory billboard proclaiming to all they got in a tussle with a skunk! Skunks don't threaten your life—they threaten your nose.
Because a skunk carries such a repulsive scent, it inherently carries with it a lot of power and respect. They are given a wide berth at all times. They command respect by reputation alone.
Here's the medicine—
A skunk teaches you by living in your integrity, by knowing and loving yourself, and by respecting yourself, you create a foundation that is respected by others. The way you carry yourself tells others how you feel about yourself. Self-esteem and self-worth are part of your energetic field and are detectable by those around you.
Skunk medicine teaches us to be who we are and be bold, without ego. Your self respecting attitude will draw those to you who also have self respect and will repel those who do not.
Skunk medicine helps you to regulate your energetic flow—bringing those close who will feed and nurture you and pushing away those who simply take and pull you down.
How you use your energy will attract either honor or disgrace. You may want to examine what kinds of energy you are putting out into the world and what the result has been.
Skunk medicine invites you to notice the kinds of people who are attracted to you. In the same way you can only love someone as much as you love yourself, you can only draw in people who are energetic matches. They are a mirror for your deepest feelings about yourself. As you heal yourself, respect yourself, love yourself, others will follow.
What you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection.
