A little reading with Navajo Estsanatlehi

My super neat friend shares sexy awesome card spreads! This month was a little different though as she encouraged us to open our energy to the Navajo goddess, Estsanatlehi aka Changing Woman in a childish way.

In perfect love and perfect trust, I did.

After I laid the cards down and accepted the one that flew on my bed last night, I closed my eyes. Excited for life. Anxious for change.

Changing Woman, I screamed!

I pointed with my magical index finger to each card and a word suddenly slipped from my breath.

To be honest, my #selfiereadings have been non-existent recently. Too busy for me, I suppose. But I do everything for me so why should it matter? It matters.

My preferred deck for thyself is Shadowscapes. The fine whimsical lines reminds me of magic and enchantment. That’s what makes it so maturely child-like. It’s a deck suitable for adults that want to reconnect with their inner child wonder.

So the words that came to me during my Changing Woman adventure were turtle, dragon and death. And off I went to the Google gods and searched for songs related to this manifestation.

And this is what I found…

However something told me to keep looking. Even though this is a really nice and selfish take on how I feel romantically there is a deeper more balanced approach that I think connects with my sister, Estsanatlehi.

After one 60s hit, a rap song, and a sad rhyme about Tiny Tim the Turtle, I found the song that I was meant to find 1 in the morning.

(I was determined so it took a couple of hours.)

My changing woman song:

Here’s why

The night previous, I had a dream of walking along a river bed that was filled with grass and land. There was still water flowing around and such but me and this woman figure that had short hair was making our way across. She asked me where I wanted to live and I said on top of a mountain. Peaks of joy if you know what I mean. So there I discover this song “Dear River” and there are some wild children in the video. But what’s even cooler is that Kina Grannis (the beautiful singer) transforms the adults into children at the end. I think it is so fitting for this Navajo influence as well as my personal life.

I’ve been close to someone for almost half a year! Mid-May will mark 6 months of our connection and he will be off to visit Puerto Rico (hence the sea lyrics in the song) and is a fast-moving little crab (he is a cancer sign) which the crab is a symbol in one of my cards. Steadfast because that’s how he is in spirit. Also I don’t think anyone can keep up with him. But what amazes me is that we both stopped to meet each other last Fall.

Cutesy, I suppose, right?

      1. Thanks Bernard! I do like to goof around with my readings and it’s great when people join in. One of my favourite readings was when I was at an event and the reading got very playful and was done by singing David Bowie songs to each other… 😀 I have a respect for tradition but there’s more than one way to skin a cat 😀 and fun seems to suit me well!
