A Buffalo Story

Let me tell you a quick buffalo story.

Buffalo spirit animal oracle cardShortly after we got married, my husband Dan and I were traveling somewhere by car. I was at the wheel, and something caught my eye. I looked, and there was a herd of buffalo in a pasture by the road!

I got super excited. “Look! Buffalo!” I shouted.

Dan got excited, too. But not about the buffalo. He grabbed the wheel just in time to keep me in my lane. His face was white as a sheet. “You’re driving,” he told me. “Let me gawk at the scenery. Your job is to keep your eyes on the road.”

(He’s never let me forget it, either. We still joke, “Look! Buffalo!” when one of us gets distracted.)

Seriously, though. We are wired to go in the direction we focus on. Look somewhere, and that’s where you’ll end up. And that’s just as true metaphorically as it is when you’re driving.

It’s a choice. It’s always a choice.

I want to share with you a vision I had a couple days ago, because it feels like it was meant for more than just me.

I saw this brilliant white-gold light descending and then what looked like a wall of ocean waves coming towards me. But when the waves grew closer I saw that they were actually a vast herd of white buffalo. And then the herd was thundering left to right and I was swept up on the back of one of the buffalo and carried forward with indescribable speed and power.

I know it seems like things are all topsy-turvy in the world right now. Whatever your political views, you have to agree that we’re headed for a shake-up. And I know that a lot of you have been experiencing a ton of personal turmoil. I just want to say, Hold On!

I believe there is a massive portal of higher consciousness opening on this planet right now. Whenever you open the door to that kind of energy flow, there’s going to be some turbulence. But I assure you, as my guides persist in assuring me, that this isn’t a bad thing.

What they are saying to do is to relax, to breathe into it, and keep looking forward towards the Light. Because that is where this is going. And the more people stay focused on Light and Love, the smoother the transition will be.

It’s a choice. We can choose to ride the sacred path towards the Light, or we can choose to focus on hate, pain, fear, and despair. Whichever way we choose to turn, that’s the direction we’ll be steering ourselves in.

Personally, I choose to ride my Bison into the Light.

I’m human. I’m distractable. I take my eyes off the path from time to time. But I’m learning, ever so slowly, to stay focused on the sacred Path.

Left to right signifies a movement coming from spirit. I know that I am just one of many who are choosing to rejoice in the momentum. I think it’s a glorious time to be alive!

How about you?
