Friday 30 October 2020 - Hunter of Strength

Hi everybody and welcome to today's card message from the Shaman Oracle.

I am the Hunter of Strength. I seek the shapes and patterns of energy to find the name and nature of strength you need. Wherever you stand in the journey of life you require strength to empower your soul strength and hearts strength, bone strength and emotional strength, are all part of the pattern you walk. At your side I guide you towards all that you need and ensure that you do not overreach your native power.

Here, a hunter is reaching down to tap into the strength of a great animal. We too can draw strength from many places, from Inner Worlds, from our family and loved ones, from the earth and the creatures with whom we share it.

The Hunter of Strength seeks out the best sources of strength we need while at the same time helping us to understand the nature of that strength, which is of a spiritual rather than physical.

Strength is a natural part of our daily lives. To make progress we need to acknowledge where best to find it- and how to recover it should ever be lost.

Many blessings to you all today and may God give you strength. Bernadette

Force of will.

Strength to accomplish your dreams. Recognition of your own power and that of others.

Drawn on the energies that surround you.

Thursday 29 October 2020 - Dancer of Inspiration

Hi everyone, the card for today is The Dancer of Inspiration.

I am the the Dancer of Inspiration. From me comes the magical lightning strike of understanding, an innate group of knowledge that transforms everything you undertake. I dance in you at your most essential moments. And when others see me I can inspire them to do the greatest height of achievement. When you journey with me you see everything as clearer. Focus, a greater sense of clarity and conviction. I need you in the
gates of the highest wonder.

Inspiration can strike us on any moment, bringing a blaze of knowledge, of understanding. It can transform anything we do. We can be inspired by anything, and that inspiration grows within us like a flower, revealing in it's unfolding a deeper and more profound sense of purpose. The Dancer of Inspiration resonates with the measure of inner certainty that cannot be diminished, and shining the light of possibility on us in
achievement, a moment of revelation we are also able to inspire others - one of the craziest acts that we can perform as human beings.

Blessings to you all today Bernadette Mac

Imaginative convictions. Precision, clarity, striking out to fresh territory.

Appreciation by others. Turning a corner.

Winning and creative strength.

Wednesday 28 October 2020 - Shaman of Birth

Hi everybody on welcome to the daily card message. I am the Shaman of Birth. I guide Souls into being. I am present from the moment of conception to the moment when the newborn arrives in the world. I help at birth of many things including ideas, beliefs, wisdom and change. I guard and show the way to all who seek this path of New Beginnings. Trust in me as you contemplate your future for I am midwife to the dreams of many.

We give birth everyday- to ideas, aspirations, hope and promises. Our ancestors understood the importance of New Beginnings to insure the continuing life of the tribe, and we can learn much from this. All fresh starts of any kind warrant the attention we would lavish on a child coming into the world. The shaman of birth shows the miracle of pregnancies. A warrior figure guards the woman who carries the unborn child ensuring that is it comes to no harm. We need to take the same protective attitude to any new ideas of fresh directions in our lives.

Blessings to all today Bernadette Mac

New life.

New directions and ideas.

Rebirth of Dreams for fulfillment and encouraging new approaches to problems.

Preparing for the moment and future life lines.

Tuesday 27 October 2020 - Dancer of Reconciliation

Hi everyone and welcome to the daily card from the Shaman Oracle. And today's card is The Dancer of Reconciliation - I dance between those who have grown apart. Between tribes and tribes, person and person, nation and nation, I seek out those who are estranged and restore the balance that has been lost. To warm who feel crushed beneath the weight of dissolution and separation, I offer the opportunity to restore the shape and form of broken bones. I also bring the means of righting old wrongs and grievances, through which process we will grow stronger.

The Dance of Reconstruction

Without reconciliation we can spend a great deal of time in a no man's land of strife and disillusion. We reconcile ourselves to many things in life without realising it. Trivial things that go wrong at work, or at home or that pushes us into difficult places. Yet reconcilling ourselves to things we cannot change, loss, death, shifts in fortune. At many levels it's an essential stage of learning on our life's journey. The Dancer of Reconciliation stands as a force of restoration, a healing presence that offers us insight to understand the true nature of our grievances and the power to mend them.

Many blessings to you all today, Bernadette Mac

Balance restored. Anger dissolved. Restitution of wrongs. Inner certainty.

Resolving chaos and confusion. Strengthening bonds.

Being and harmony and peacemaking.

Monday 26 October 2020 - Shaman of Song

I am the Shaman of Song. I sing from the hollow places of being and he sound I produce reach out to the edges of creation. When I sing I bring healing energy, peace, strength, joy - all these transcendent aspects of being are in my song. It is beneficial and opens ways that might otherwise be closed.

From the earliest of time shamans used the power of song to bring healing to those in need and to feel their way into the heart of spirit. The song itself represents energy and life, and transcends time, place, mood and emotions, bringing harmony in times of stress. We may not be singers but we can sing in our hearts. The resonance of song touches all things, brings us closer to spirit, and teaches us to see beyond the personal into the infinite. The Shaman of Song uses this power to help us discover and travel along our true path and bring us clarity in times of confusion.

Many blessings to you all today, love and light, Bernadette Mac.


Cleansing the path through song.

Raising joy. Calming agitation. Restoration. Food of spirit. Energy. Light.

Awareness of invisible matter.

Sunday 25 October 2020 - Shaman of Reflections

I offer you who called upon me the opportunity to see beyond your mirror image, and to recognise within yourself the truth that you may never received. I challenge those who believe that there is only one pathway to follow in the mystery of the mirror. I show each individual his or her true self.

Reflections can be many things- for example, the thoughts we have in fleeting moments before undertaking some new task, or times of contemplation when we can recognise things we have never before acknowledged about ourselves. The Shaman of Reflections teaches us to look in the mirror and be challenged by what we see: we may encounter a person, or a situation, or an aspect of our life that we have hidden from. The Shaman holds a serpent of wisdom, symbolic of how the true answer reflected back to us can make us wiser. We must take heed and change paths accordingly.

Self-clarification. Being aware of other paths.

Acknowledging the truth. Learning to accept reality. Testing the validity of challenges.

Saturday 24 October 2020 - Hunter of Mysteries

Mysteries are the hidden inner side of life. To our ancestors there were great mysteries the rituals and ceremonies by which they communed with celestial beings. So too for us, we are able to deepen awareness of the world around us by plumbing the mystery of Life itself.

The Hunter of Mystery stands in the Shadows to emerge into the light where he will guide us on our path. In following his lead we enter into a state that is timeless, spaceless, and informed by exploring deep within ourselves we give form to our thoughts, our aims and our actions.

Inner truth. Deep awareness. Change.

Restoration. Inner power. Access to spirit. Engaging with energy. Perceptions renewed. Connection to all of life.

Spiritual Alliances.
