Drawing upon sacred spiritual knowledge from the oldest living culture in the world
Aboriginal Ancestral Wisdom Oracle has a unique method of exploring the same situation from various viewpoints, by including a light and a dark message from the Ancestors on each card, all the while working between 4 different environments:
- Freshwater Wisdom represents our journey to seek clarity through the muddy waters and onto the clear fresh water downstream where everything becomes more transparent.
- Saltwater Wisdom represents our journey to the deepest depths of our wisdom and the closer we journey, the more evident our messages become.
- Desert Wisdom represents our knowledge which is hidden in plain sight, yet if time is taken to explore the situation as a whole, answers become more apparent.
- Rainforest Wisdom represents our ability to hide in the background while we assess our environment and ponder our next move.The light messages are confirmation that we are on the right path and offer words of wisdom and encouragement to continue on the journey, whereas the dark messages prompt us to consider things differently and explore other ways in which we could attain an alternative outcome.
