Divination Method: The Secret Language of Animals Oracle Cards

Card(s) Drawn: Koala

Key Word(s): Calm, Perspective, Imagination, Ease

Affirmation:

“I breathe deep with a warm smile and relax into the arms of the great Tree of Life.

I feel peace, calm and new possibility.

I bring this wherever I go.”

My Interpretation:

Koala’s appearance for the coming week is quite fitting on a couple of levels. First of all, Koala’s message is one of an opportunity – and responsibility – to become a source of peace and positivity, both for ourselves and those we come in contact with. Actions speak louder than words, contrary to what those engaged in the current storm of today’s political climate seem to think. Following Koala’s example of watching things from above and surveying the situation with a serene demeanor  helps us to gain perspective. Acting calmly, rather than reacting in haste is the better course to take. Easier said than done, I know, but living and embodying your values instead of pushing them in other people’s faces makes a much deeper impression. So, in the coming week, relax. Place yourself into a low gear and become an observer, rather than shoving yourself into the thick of it.

What is this other side of Koala that is befitting this particular moment in time? Well, let me tell ya! According to Aboriginal legends, Koalas were the first creatures on the earth, formed from the earthen clay itself. It is said that they shared the ancient wisdom of the earth with the early peoples of Australia. Legend also states that in order to survive a prolonged drought, these ancient people transformed into Koalas in order to ascend the trees to ingest the moisture filled eucalyptus leaves. While in the heights of the trees they were able to gain a a broader perspective and understanding of the vastness of the world below. They became known as the Memory Keepers, keeping watch from the treetops in order to welcome the spirits of the ancestors upon their return.

This coming week includes Samhain, a time at which the veil between worlds is at its thinnest. The appearance of our cuddly looking marsupial friend assures us that our ancestors are coming, and encourages us to listen to their wisdom. Take some time to sit in quiet reflection and honor and remember the ancestors. They may have something interesting to tell you. 😉
