    What made you change your mind to post this thread and to translate yourself in such a different way?

    Being purposeful and creative. Many faces can be confusing so keeping it down to just a few helps.

    I decided on a course to maximize communication and playfulness. Having a thread like this to work in puts me in a good frame of mind as well.

    No personality transplant, just working with a modified persona.

    No, but I would be interested to know what the North American Mountain Lion /Cougar represents, I had a very lucid dream where I was stood at the door (which is actually three glass doors side by side ) with my wife & dog, and on the raised garden terrace about 14 feet to the right of he door was the most beautiful mountain lion, it then came down & sat on the door step.

    It was incredibly HD visually, & there was no fear, just a sense of awe & wonder, (I have never actually seen a mountain lion in real life either.)

    It represents, or more correctly its 'medicine' is, leadership.

    Medicine is the counsel and animals have for us by the knowledge of their ways. Their special abilities and strengths are the medicine they offer. As well as some things to avoid.

    The Medicine Cards derive their name from this.

    To your knowledge, are their a similar set (not tarrot), that picture native men in different trades/environments please?

    I was once shown cards in a dream vision, they were life size and portrayed maybe Mayans or something similar and they were passing before me from the right to left. Each one had a single man in a pose for example holding a tool performing some action in a specific environment, it stopped on a card with a man in a forrest, which of course is my church.

    Despite the plethora of cards with different themes, the one you describe is not one I know of.

    Hey Brother,

    You know me, 'foot in mouth disease' and all that good stuff, lol...I'm an Ozzy.

    Sometimes I get a rush of blood to the head and say things that others are thinking, but don't say it.

    Where would you other *******s be if it wasn't for me asking pesky questions?

    Besides, I know Wizzy loves me in spite of my wild and wacky way with words.

    Don't cha wizzy?...

    Ah, the deep wisdom is the meal, whilst the sometimes caustic wit is but the spice, the experience of consuming the wise wizard's thought would be without substance on the one hand, and lacking its particular flavor on the other.


    I suppose mod knows I have wide experience with the medicine/totem cards. My own totem was made in 2001, and the deck that was used was handed to me a few years later. In 2009 I gifted my closest friend, who later became my wife, with her own deck, so now there are two decks and books in the house.

    My own totem was eventually lost, and the spirit guides, the Left and Right, are the only ones retained in my memory, respectively these are Panther/Unknown and Alligator/Integration. The night my totem was done, I had one of those peak experiences, I was riding in the car with my friend "John the Baptist", and we were having a serious discussion about conspiracies, etc. At a particular point in the ride, I realize the sounds of my friend's voice and that of the car on the road had muted and disappeared, to be replaced with a low, humming vibration, much lower that the vibration of the vehicle. A moment later my sense of vision blacked out totally, leaving me in darkness that was total, with only the humming to be perceived. After what seemed like a long while, I began to see a vague outline of a darker black within the black, and as the recognition of Puma reached my consciousness, the great cat's eyes opened, shining green and gold, and this propelled me abruptly back into the car. It took a few moments to get fully back to my senses, and once I did, all I could do was laugh and giggle. I will never forget "John" saying, OK, You can laugh if you will.... and I had to get a hold of myself, to say no, no, I am not laughing at you, and to proceed to relay the experience, to which he replied, we should do your totem when we get back. And sure enough, the last card drawn, the guardian on the left, was Panther.

    My wife, when her totem was done many years later, drew Raven/Magic and Alligator as well. As Panther carries the energy of Mystery or the Unknown, it has been seen than nothing could have been more appropriate, as interfacing with Mystery has been a central theme in the intervening years. It takes a lot of gumption to follow that one, one learns not to hold on to self, otherwise no progress is made.

    Years later, 06 I think, was my first encounter with the Ra Material, and I will never forget the one phrase that tickles me to this day, Ra saying All we know, and all we are, begins and ends in Mystery.

    Caleb, I would suggest meditating on the dream, to remember as much detail as possible, and to draw them as best as you are able. My interpretation is that these would be a series of archtypal representations particular to you, but should you fully recall, record and interpret them, the lessons you may learn may provide you with a valuable tool for in turn teaching others. The cards might not exist in this reality, until you yourself create them. Such things brought back from the other side are the rarest of gifts.
    Sometimes God shines his magic light beam from outer space, and it works in mysterious ways.

    A "shaman type friend" suggested Ted Andrews as a good source for that type of information.

    I got a couple of books and his card set.


    Don't see "mountain lion" but he has a reference to "cougar".


    Don't think I can copy from the net and it is too long to type ... will give you the "questions to ask" portion at the end:


    Are we ignoring opportunities that present themselves rather than jumping upon them? Are we being too impatient in seeking what we wish? Are we dissatisfied with our progress? Are we being too forceful in our pursuits? Are we letting others take charge? Have we forgotten the importance of self-motivation and initiative?

    I did a totem spread some years back and have been able to keep my helpers recorded. However, I would not hesitate to do another session to fond out what might have shifted.

    The 7 animals that became my medicine helpers.

    Crow=Law. Otter=Woman Medicine, Moose=Esteem, Porcupine=Innocence, Armadillo=Boundaries, Coyote=Trickster and Lizard=Dreaming.

    I like Ted Andrews and have his Animal Spirit book. Something like that. It is an excellent book and a helpful companion to the Medicine cards.

    I have often been helped by using the Medicine Cards to get a message regarding a subject that I wish for deeper insight.

    It is interesting that Armadillo is a big key to personal power. Boundaries are about personal space, ours and others, and proper management of boundaries is key to owning ones power.
