The Commitment Card:
You need commitment to focus on your target, take aim, pull back the bow, and then shoot your arrow, knowing you will hit the bull’s-eye with every shot. To hit the bull’s-eye requires total commitment of your spiritual and physical being. You need only the commitment to walk down the path through the gateway into your true destiny. It is a process of gathering. You gather your emotions, your mental strength, and your abilities as you would gather sheep. It can be a long process, but your commitment gives you endurance. It is the next step after defining your act of power. Materialize your dreams and begin to live them. Build that magnificent dream lodge within you with total commitment.
Definition of the Card: The painting is entitled Threshold of the Heavens. It symbolizes our commitment along the path of enlightenment from one space or level of consciousness to another. This painting shows a moon gateway looking into the garden of higher consciousness and the sphere of universal consciousness within.
The Virtue Card:
“Virtue is one of the passive qualities of power. When you pull back the bow, preparing to set the arrow and define your target, you use the strength, the will, and the focus that you have collected within that part of yourself called virtue. Virtue is where you find inner truth. It is a place of illumination, and as that radiance grows within you, it becomes integrity. Without virtue, there is no inner balance. Virtue comes from the unknown, quiet things that you do for the world and other people. With each act, your spirit shield becomes stronger and more beautiful with the symbols of your inner life. Like the deer, they are quiet symbols. Virtue marks your path on the other side. Like the one who walks last, the virtuous person is in a position of power. Power often comes quietly. Walk in beauty and virtue.” (“Virtue” card, The Power Deck, Cards of Wisdom)
The Balance Card:
The structure of your daily spiritual life must be built on a strong foundation in the physical world, like a pillar of selected shaman's stones balanced carefully one on another. Take care of your body through diet and exercise.
Express your strength in acts of power, and bring greater awareness to the exchange of money. Protect and nourish your family, and express your integrity by bringing balance into society and nature. Then you will be prepared in the physical for higher spiritual learning.
Your being is like a spirit lodge, the foundation of which is rooted in physical manifestation - strong against the storms along the trail to higher consciousness. to take power, make your spirit available. Take your power and bring your physical and spiritual natures into balance.
Lynn V. Andrews:
For the past 35 years, I have had the great honor of working and studying with an extraordinary group of shaman women, many of them elders, from indigenous cultures all over the world. The spiritual teachings and shamanic life wisdom which they have imparted to me are ancient, rooted deeply in the power and nurturance of our beautiful Mother Earth and the energies of the universe across many millenniums... And yet these teachings are as powerful, uplifting and applicable in our world today as they were thousands of years ago.
I have written 19 books about my adventures, personal transformation and spiritual growth with these women, the 44 women of the Sisterhood of the Shields of whom I am, today, a member. Through my work these books and my center for shamanic studies, which draws people from all over the globe -- these women have chosen to bring their ancient wisdom into todays world in order that we may all work together to heal our planet and our own lives and restore harmony and joy to the world in which we live.
As my teachers have always said, you cannot heal the world unless you first heal yourself. Then you move into the world in a powerful and harmonious way, fully centered within yourself, with one foot planted firmly in the world of the physical and the other forever rooted in spirit. When you are centered in this way, you become an inspiration and beacon of light to the world around you.
I believe that this is my purpose in life: to become a bridge between Western consciousness and the sacred and ancient consciousness that also lives on this earth, as it was taught to me by the Sisterhood of the Shields. It is my pleasure to welcome you to this powerful and amazing journey of spirit.
