Medicine Card Monday #18 "Spirit Animal-The Mouse" My Gift To Steemit ---> For The Week Of September 3, 2018

in medicinecardmonday •  last year  (edited)

When I think of the mouse I have to admit I get a bit squeamish, I'm not as comfortable around rodents as @yidnith, when I pulled this card I immediately thought of her. Hopefully, she swings by and finds this enjoyable. The Mouse Woman goddess might be particularly interesting to those who love folklore.

For a short time I had a pet rat perfectly okay living in her cage, Scamper was a delight and fun little rat (as long as she was put away.) This week the card I pulled for Steemit is The Mouse.

Mouse Woman

If we are attracted to Sprit Animals we may think of ourselves as more of the Wolf, Bear, Eagle, Owl types. However, there are many who are happy to be a mouse and even dream of this animal quite often. Some interesting facts you may want to think of during this medicine reading is what type of medicine to mice have? After all, humankind has been experimenting on these poor little creatures for quite some time.

Positive mice facts from Animal Corner are:

  • Mice are funny and entertaining to observe. Mice are natures ‘busy-bodies’ and they scuttle around being very inquisitive.

  • Mice are very nimble animals and can run very fast.

  • Mice come in lots of different colors.

  • Mice like to play.

  • A wild mouses habitat is usually in a field, a nest, or in a burrow in the ground.

  • Mice in the wild are very territorial. The male mouse has a larger territory than a female mouse.

Are we noticing any similarities in relation to the human family yet? Before I finish with some fun facts, let me not forget to respect those that have passed on due to "science." This is where I personally get a bit upset because I do not feel comfortable support this type of experimentation. All creatures deserve respect and are a living breath just like humans. No, I'm not PETA or in extreme support of groups that are very passionate about their stance. We all have choices, and I choose to allow all creatures their natural life course.

That said, I feel it important to give mice their due respect. Many were sacrificed in the name of science and these facts are from a website called Understanding Animal Research:


The above information was found in order to give us a clear understanding of facts surrounding the mice, and the possible medicine or healing that they can bring to us. Let's take a moment to think about that ...

All of my readings are geared towards a healing; breaking through mental, spiritual, or emotional blocks that will assist us in overcoming every day obstacles.

If this is your first time swinging by, my Medicine Card Monday initiative is my positive intention to pull a card of healing or medicine for the community. This is different than tarot in that the cards I use are on the medicinal aspect of humanity other than the most common cards found in a tarot deck.

The decks I use are The Wild Unknown - Animal Spirit, Mystical Shaman Oracle, and the Chakra Wisdom Oracle. The cards will assist in helping those interested, find comfort in things going on in our community and the world we are now dealing with. Namely, issues around the world, astronomical, or overcoming health issues of all sorts, etc., maybe just something out of balance that we are feeling on any particular day that needs guidance.

By pulling a card for Steemit this will in turn assist with my Medicine training, give back to the community, and help those seeking answers. I will take some of the reading from guidebooks provided with the cards, but primarily give intuitive and medicinal words to help our community. We all have days when we need encouragement, inspiration, and comfort.

The Mouse is of the earth realm that comes with the the following meanings; detail-oriented, small-minded, nit-picky and nervous.

If you see any personality commonalities then you may be synced in to the mouse, or may have this come into your life when you need mouse medicine.

The Message - The Mouse

The Mouse has an innate desire to tend to details. It often spends its days fixing, preparing, organizing, and scrutinizing. Unfortunately, a mouse personality doesn't notice when they've gone too far. Soon they begin to have a limited and fearful vision of life, and try to control every detail. This can be quite a painful experience for both the Mouse and those around them.

When Mouse energy is at play, step back for a moment. It may be time to find a more purposeful project to delve into, one that's worthy of your exacting eye.

When in Balance: organized, resourceful, prepared

When Out of Balance: busy with no purpose

To bring Into Balance: a meaningful project

How can we apply this to Steemit? Have we laid back and just observed others move ahead of us or think of new projects to bring to the platform, maybe its time we bring our talents forward and initiate something that will benefit all. Perhaps we do not participate or think of ourself as unorganized, not resourceful, not as talented, ill prepared? How about working our way out of our doubts and give it a try? Even if slowly, bring forth our own talent to Steemit and trust in the fact that Steemit will welcome you with open arms.

Above, I shared some of the photos of Mouse Woman throughout this blog, Mouse Woman is a protector and helper amongst the Haida tribe in British Columbia. Take a peek at the video featuring artist, Corey Bullpitt as he explains the Haida tradition.

Yay!!! Medicine Card Monday!!!

Nice sizing on the image I wanted, too.

@enchantedspirit LOL!! thank you and the images! noo noo noo LOL

Nice reading @eaglespirit! I while I understand why mice and rabbits are used for scientific research, doesn't mean I agree with it. Live human testing would be worse, seems to me there should be a better method to their madness.

This drawing really does apply to Steemit. So many busy themselves without direction or purpose mainly due to not being involved. They sit there 'spin their wheels' and then just fade away. A few people told me once I found my niche everything would be fine.

Once I did get organized, re-evaluated my purpose on Steemit and what I want out of it, things did start to click. I wouldn't call it a niche it is more of a purpose and direction.

hey there's my try! :)
thanks for reading and yeah the research part makes my hairs raise up. come to find out my people are mostly vegetarians go figure! of course i was mostly raised on rise n beans LOL
yeah, i never found my niche but i plug along just learning ... plugging along is key.
yay! i love the way you explained that ... just perfect!! :)

😎plugging along is key. There are enough people around to keep me going too LOL. Glad you liked the comment. I think your niche is just being you. You're true to yourself (as far as I can see) honest, intelligent and intuitive. It seems to be doing well for you.

That is interesting about your people being mostly vegetarian. Maybe because of scarcity? Where plants usually can be farmed and stored? There was a book that came out several years ago 'Eat right for your blood type' It was interesting, it went as far to explain which regions various blood types came from and what diet was indigenous to that region. I should see if I still have it and see what it says.

i have no idea, except for little writings i found that said they preferred it, have we talked about that book already? i feel we have LOL
i've done the diet for 2 years previously. its agood one.

We might have. That goes along with our last conversation. So many conversations going on, it gets to be hard to remember which one is which

@tryskele i totally agree! LOL we have a lot of these deep convos. hugs

My thought was that the only thing I have in common with the mouse is how I look.

Oddly all the rest seem like me also apart from the when in balance part.

When Out of Balance: busy with no purpose
To bring Into Balance: a meaningful project

From there though those are the exact things I do when out and to get back into balance.

Very interesting looking forward to more and will scroll back for the previous ones you covered.

@penderis nooo get out !! lol you do not look like a mouse
yes it makes sense .. and its a check point to see where a person is at this moment in time.

asking ourself:

are we in balance, out of balance, or what can i do to get back into balance. :)

thanks so much you are awesome xo

Nice mousey. Busy with no purpose? Hmm nah. Maybe it's talking about how organized the steem media day blast was hmmmmmm

what blast? 😮 was it good?

usually mouse medicine means to find a new project ... i need to find more facts on the media

oh yeah i saw his post 😜
