Through this card we're being invited to co-create. But how should we co-create and what are we creating?
On this card, we have a leopard, an owl, and an egg with spots which, clearly, depicts a kind of co-creation between the leopard and the owl. Besides this we have a beautiful light blue colour of the sky in the background and abundance of light fluffy clouds.
So what does it all mean? What message are the angels wanting us to receive today?
This card is all about creating your own reality. That every second of every day you are creating your reality, via your thoughts, emotions, intentions and actions, whether you're conscious of it or not.
However, you are not alone in creating your reality. You should consider that you are working alongside the very energy that you are one with: God, Source, the Universe, Divinity... whichever name you choose. You are a spark, an element of the same energy so it's impossible that, as an individual, you can create on your own because you are not an individual, you are one with the energy of Source. You have the support and the guidance from Source energy.
So align yourself with Source energy that you may create miracles and manifest your best life.
On this card we have two very strong animals: a leopard and an owl. Their appearance, their size, the way they travel, their coats... everything about them says that they are very different and, yet, together they have come together to create a miracle, a spotted egg. From this message we can pull comfort that, although we may feel that we are poles apart and not in the same league as Source energy, we can come together and work together to create a beautiful and miraculous reality.
Consider now what each animal, the leopard and the owl, symbolise.
Let's consider the leopard first. The leopard is excellent at stalking prey, moving silently and inconspicuously. This implies that you can observe different situations with clarity. Trust your instincts to lead you to the right direction. The leopard is a majestic sight when it’s stalking in silence. There’s beauty in its confidence, a confidence that you are being invited to emulate. Leopard symbolism is about having confidence in your life journey. The road may be rough and the climb may be more challenging than you thought, but trust in your abilities that you can conquer them all! The leopard is all about personal power and confidence, as well as its stealth and gracefulness. When all these gifts are combined and you use them well, there is nothing that you cannot achieve.
The owl represents deep inner wisdom, good judgment, and knowledge. Like the owl, which is known for its sharp vision and keen observation, you also possess insight and intuition. The presence of an owl implies that you find life’s mysteries completely fascinating. You like exploring uncharted territories and knowing the unknown. You seek to make sense of things that you do not understand, and you try to come up with the best solutions for every problem or situation. Because of this, you are wiser, stronger, and more intuitive than your years. The meaning of the owl allows you to appreciate all that life can offer, because you have taught yourself to believe that life itself is a gift to be grateful for. No matter how easy or difficult you have it, you don’t take a single day for granted.
The question I want to ask you is: Are you a leopard or an owl? Or have you a bit of both inside you?
Here's the thing. You will not and cannot possess all the qualities of both the leopard and the owl. You may feel you're more like one than the other, or you may feel you possess a mix of qualities from the both of them.
That's where the beauty of co-creation comes in. To come together to create the miracle of a spotted egg, a product of both the leopard's and the owl's abilities, you need the abilties and traits of both animals. When you understand that you are co-creating your life and your reality with Source energy, what traits and properties you feel you do not (yet) possess, you can turn to Source energy to provide them. Together you are stronger. Together you can create a better reality.
The other two things I noted about this card was the light blue of the sky and the fluffy clouds.
Light blue is the colour of harmony. When you choose to co-create your life with Source energy, when you realise that you're not going it alone but have support and guidance, you are working in harmony to create a life that is built from harmony and is, in itself, harmonious.
Clouds represent higher thinking which, I feel, truly sums up this card. Low level thinking is when we think we're going it alone, when we believe that life is happening to us, when life's a struggle and nothing comes easily. We are being invited to move our thoughts and beliefs to a higher level, to see the full picture, to understand and appreciate that there's more than you or me, and life happening to us and around us. For when we do, miracles can and do happen. The miracle of a spotted egg, the result of combining the traits and abilities of a leopard and an owl, may seem far-fetched and impossible. However, when you consider things from a higher perspective, you can consider that what may once have seemed impossible, can become truly possible.
