Happy April Fool’s Day! Before we get to the power animal of the day. I would like to share theme for April. Another month has passed by and very quickly it seems. This month’s theme is L-O-V-E. Love is the ability to attract, unify and desire. This month’s affirmation is “I am a radiating center of love.“

Salmon is the sacred keeper of wisdom and inner knowing who, despite strong river currents, will always return to the place of it’s creation. It’s determination is driven by the wisdom of instinct and inner knowing, which yields a sense of purpose that cannot be thwarted by external forces. Coming full circle, Salmon medicine people finish what they begin, bringing life’s events and cycles to closure.
Salmon medicine honors every encounter in life as a gathering of wisdom. It teaches that even when the flow of life seems to push you back, you can tap the hidden resources of your human spirit and personal inner knowing. The journey may not be a easy one, and the currents of public opinion may not be in your favor,but you can choose to honor the wisdom you carry and instinctually do what’s right. If Salmon swam into your card today, it may be telling you to trust your gut feeling and inner knowing at this time. Avoid the influences of those who may have hidden agendas or who manipulate events for their personal gain. Do you need to reflect on the personal experiences that will help you decide whether the tide is ebbing or flowing in a direction that benefits your forward movement and growth? Go back to the beginning and retrace your path to this point. The wisdom is inside you, and when honoring it you will not go wrong.
The silver of Salmon’s skin reflects many lessons. To reclaim your inner knowing,you must see the opportunity in all situations, and know that wisdom is earned through both life’s easy and difficult experiences. Be willing to listen to others, as well as to the small,still voice within. Believe in a manner that honors your path. The proper use of inner knowing comes when you flow with your authentic feelings, embracing all the experiences you encounter in life as learning lessons rather than hardships. Salmon teaches you to see every bend in the river as a new adventure with a lesson you need to learn in order to grow. That knowledge becomes authentic wisdom through applying these truths to your life.
