SHAPESHIFTER: You can be anything you desire. Let go of attachment to your identity. See the world around you with new eyes. Be malleable. Experiment with different ways of viewing reality. See the point of view of others. If you haven’t been able to manifest your dreams, maybe you need to shift the way you see the person or situation.
Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: In earth-based cultures, shape-shifters had the mystical ability to transform into other forms of consciousness. It’s said that these beings were not imagining that they were changing into a specific animal, plant or stone; they could actually morph into another shape. Just because most people today don’t think this is possible doesn’t mean that it’s not true. This card chose you because it wants you to know that your past does not need to equal your future. Simply shifting your point of view or your belief system can bring an entirely new destiny into being.
The Journey: To deepen your ability to shape-shift, simply imagine that you’re an animal, bird, plant or stone. Make it as real as you can. Doing this deepens your ability to shift your beliefs and limiting decisions that perhaps have held you back from fulfilling your highest destiny.

WHITE BUFFALO: Abundance and security are flowing into your life. All things are possible. Balance and harmony prevail. You may be called upon to stand up for others, but you can do this because you have the support of many beings in the spirit realm.
Your Native Spirit Wants You to Know: In Native American traditions, there are prophecies about the coming of the White Buffalo, especially among the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota (or the “Sioux”). There’s a legend that White Buffalo Calf Woman, a mystical being, came to the people a very long time ago, when they were out of balance. She gifted the people with a sacred bundle containing the White Buffalo Calf Pipe to help restore the balance. Upon leaving, the White Buffalo Calf Woman prophesized that she will return at the end of an age, and that she will appear as a white buffalo calf. In recent times, white buffalo calves have been born, leading many to believe that this is the beginning of a new time. When this card chooses you, it’s an honor, for it speaks of a time of miracles and balance in all things. You are a channel for the greater forces in the Universe. With their help, all is possible, but without it, things can be a struggle/ Surrender to support from the Great Spirit; you do not have to do everything alone.
The Journey: Shape-shift into the white buffalo, and the energy this card brings will multiply tenfold. Imagine that you can feel the power in your muscles and the fecund earth beneath your hooves. Feel the weight of your horns and the warmth of your hide. This calls the deeper energies of white buffalo into your life.
