    My "shaman type friend" suggested keeping a pocket sized journal with you and write down all the animals you come into contact with.

    That led to some ... interesting ... things.

    Perhaps worthy of others interested to follow up on???

    I tend to use animal augury for auspicious timings. Auguries are a study in themselves. I like it because it is a discourse with Creation.

    augury (′gyə-rē)
    n. pl. auguries
    1. The art, ability, or practice of auguring; divination.
    2. A sign of something coming; an omen: "The chartist buys when the auguries look favorable and sells on bad omens" (Burton G. Malkiel).

    I remember each encounter very clearly. A list over time could show a pattern or theme in place.

    Poorly managed boundaries are a recipe for a host of troubles. Resentment is a huge effect of poor boundary management.

    Due to the way narcissists program their kids all that anger and resentment is blamed squarely on the self, making the problem worse, as self esteem becomes none existent.

It would be timelessly latent.

    For me the higher self is the personal aspect of soul and is intimately involved in our daily affairs. This is our partner when we seek to review our day and its interactions.

    All terminology used is my own language for these discussions. Any variance with identical terms with different meanings is understood and accepted.
    This is a very nice analogy. My only addition would involve the statement relating to the higher self. As we are to the individual portion of soul, and may draw our "memory" from it, so the higher self would be that furthest future portion, existing after the many recordings of the emanations would have been complete. It is an amazing spectacle to behold (internally) when the HS chirps up and explains this or that, but one must be listening to hear it, and humble to accept it.

    This touches on to another thought form I have held, involving incorrect action and the remediation of self, that being that through this inner interaction with the higher self, it becomes possible to "learn lessons" directly, rather than with the reality as the intermediary. Karma gets burned off at a rapid pace, and development into the higher, or spiritual ideals comes about in short order. Part of my current course is in the practice and analysis of these, hence the apparently sound advice from what would to some appear to be a young and not exactly worldly wise person. Makes my butt hurt, just thinking about it.
    Sometimes God shines his magic light beam from outer space, and it works in mysterious ways.

    Wonderful practice, thanks.

    I don't write them down, but I do notice, particularly if it is repetitious. Ted Andrews "Animal Speak" book has always been a good guide for me.

    Several years ago my place was infested with ants. What a nightmare. Then I remembered Animal Speak. Looked up "ant". Of course, industrious, order and discipline. No surprises, but I realized I was going through a phase of putting everything off that needed to be done, especially with a particular writing project. hmm . .as soon as I began
    diligently working on the project again - bingo! . . the ants disappeared.

    I am guessing this is all old news that has been dealt with. Parents forgiven or exiled, preferably forgiven, and we move on with our lives. Anything else is dysfunctional. Not to mention a giving away of one's power.

    If I have guessed incorrectly, is is because the best outcome is desired for and I wished to project that.

    Auguries happen, they are not readings.

    I use medicine cards when I want help with counsel or raw counsel itself. I use them as often or as seldom ,as needed. Weeks or months can go by without me using them. Often because I forget to make time for that particular reflection.

    Llamas may be good guards but, lamas tend to be good at meditation. Including purple ones.

    I love my parents so much, although growing up was . . . precarious. It's a VERY tough job being a parent and nobody gets it just right because everybody's so different and has different needs. I may not have made the same mistakes that my folks made but I probably ****ed my kids up just the same. Who among us had a perfect upbringing must be very lucky indeed. Just have to remember all that love, and let it flow, I guess
