Inspurrational card of the day June 13
Since I had a lucid dream last night about a TOAD becoming my spirit animal
I felt compelled to check my Jamie Sam’s Animal Medicine Cards today
Yes SKUNK MEDICINE
I’ve written about Skunk medicine before. SKUNK medicine, or power is not STINKY at all.
In fact you could see it as a pun on Instincts.
SKUNK medicine is very powerful and good because the skunk is known by its reputation alone.
Skunks are actually very timid creatures, known by its powerful smell. Most animals, and people avoid the near sighted creature. It’s reputation precedes it.
SKUNK MEDICINE teaches you to walk your talk and respect yourself in order to create a position of strength and an honored reputation. Like skunk there is no need to bully, posture, aggravate or provoke others to protect themselves. With skunk medicine, you radiate an energy of self- esteem which permeates your body and psychic energy field. You emanate strength no matter how small you are.
Learn to assert who you are without any need for ego, pride or other postures. Others will respect you as you respect yourself. How you treat others and the standards you keep is how you will be treated back. You will also repel those who are not on the same level of intent.

Skunk medicine is also sexual energy. Animals use scents to attract mates. Sexual energy is very powerful and should be used only when it’s appropriate and not for playing games or for seeing how “attractive” you are. Your reputation as to how you deal with your self as a sexual being is always very important, especially for women.
Notice what kinds of people are attracted to you. What you believe about yourself is your ultimate protection.
We used to have a mama skunk and her babies living underneath our my husband’s art studio in our backyard. When I used to smoke cigarettes I would be out there at night and I ran into the baby skunk a few times, it was like a cartoon- we both jumped back. As I meant it no harm it just stared at me and slowly loped away. I felt blessed to have a skunk nearby.
Don’t stink up the place and leave a bad smell, taste or reputation behind you.

More about TOAD medicine from my dear old friend Derek Robinson in B.C.
The toad’s the jewel in the skull .. witches of old europe like in Shakespeare’s “Toad, that under cold stone / Days and nights has thirty-one / Swelter’d venom sleeping got, / Boil thou first i’ the charmed pot” from Macbeth .. then there’s the sonoran desert toad whose skin venom contains large (as such things go) amounts of 5-Meo-DMT
DMT’s the dreaming drug produced in the pineal gland in the centre of the brain, very literally the third eye, like the living dinosaur New Zealand’s tuatara (yes!) still possesses in rudimentary form – “They are further unusual in having a pronounced photoreceptive eye dubbed the “third eye”, whose current function is a subject of ongoing research, but is thought to be involved in setting circadian and seasonal cycles.” sez wikipedia.
Andrew Weil gets the nod for scientifically pinning down the Sonoran desert toad cult, very likely Aztec & Mayan & more ancient shamanic devotees, there are these old mushroom stones from Mesoamerica with toads growing out of them.
Funny that the NZ animal is called a TUATARA which is virtually the TARA MANTRA!!!!
So watch your dreams very carefully these day. The SATURN NEPTUNE GRAND TRINE will make them LUCIDLY real. “waking up to the dream” seems to be the prevailing mood on planet earth about now
