Still water reflects only light. The colors and shapes that you see in that reflection simply mirror their divine source.
When you see your reflection in still water, or in a mirror, you see your own light … the light of your creation.
The Third Sacred Principle is Honesty. Its direction is the West, and its color is black — not for fear, but to signify the end of day … to honor the light of day by recognizing the value of the night.
From the West come the Thunder Beings, who bring the rains to nourish the land, to replenish the waterways … to create the still water of pools, waiting for the light of reflection.
The Ancient Ones taught that the Two-Leggeds (humankind) are given knowledge and freedom of choice by the Creator … and that to remain upright and steady, those two virtues must walk hand in hand. Together, they become the light and the still surface.
As you allow yourself this time of reflection — of seeing within — you are given enormous gifts. The Elders remind us that gifts do not come with baggage. They are light … reflecting joy in the giver, and in the receiver.
Consider this week’s quote:
Your inward gaze shines light into your soul. The shadows of ego, of fear, of old hurts are burned away. As you see the reflection of that light, you are shown the map of your growth and awareness … your knowledge, your freedom of choice take away old limitations.
The Great Circle, the Sacred Medicine Wheel, shines around you, over you and beneath you. You are guided on its path. You are held in its peace. The radiance of your spirit shines out and you become a reflection of the divine!
Give yourself permission to let go of shadows … to look within and find your light!
