Koala (Spirit Has a Plan): A to Z Blogging Challenge

Card from Colette Baron-Reid’s Spirit Animal Oracle Deck Much love and gratitude goes out to Barbara Techel at Joyful Paws for sharing the digital image of Koala Spirit

This year has been one heck of a ride so far, and the month of April – my birth month – does not “disappoint” in adding to it.

I’ve been consciously on my spiritual path for 20 years, at least. Maybe the lessons we learn and experience are like the experience of labor for a woman. We forget over time, but this year is unlike any I’ve experienced so far.

Koala reassures me that “Spirit has a plan”. I don’t doubt that, but whoo whee! When I set my intention for 2019 as “expansion”, I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into.

My mom used to tell me, “God never gives you anything that you can’t handle.” Then (as the meme I’ve seen going around social media says) God must think I’m a spiritual badass.

Seriously, though, the past couple of weeks has been a real eye-opener for me. What I thought my “life purpose” was something entirely different as were my spiritual gifts.


It was during a visit with a very talented intuitive that I discovered nearly everything I’ve created the past couple of months was meant to center around animals. When I first heard this, I was dumbfounded and blown away. Animals, really?? The more I’ve looked at it, though, the more I realize it is is my truth. My gifts are centered around animals. They always have been. I was just too “stubborn” to realize it.

The word “stubborn” was the exact word one of my ancestors (through this intuitive) used to describe me. ME?? Stubborn?? Go figure! *stated with extreme sarcasm* I prefer to state it as “blinded by focus”. Yes, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

But, back to the animals… I’m currently expanding and opening to the possibilities of this epiphany as well as all the opportunities I’m afforded to connect with them.

Yesterday, I picked up the Spirit Animal Oracle Deck from Colette Baron-Reid. That’s the deck that Koala Spirit is from. I’d worked with it via one of my friends who has it and fell in love with it then, but when I went in search of a “totem animal deck”, this one practically fell out at me at the book store. I knew I had to bring it home.

Since today is the ‘K’ day for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I decided that Koala would be a perfect ‘K’ topic.

Oracle Message of Koala Spirit

“In nature, the koala moves slowly through the branches of the eucalyptus tree, leisurely chewing the leaves, reminding us that life is not a race or competition. Chasing around after every distraction can keep us from recognizing that we have all we need and that Spirit will always be there with gifts to sustain us. You are being asked to trust that by moving slowly, with faith in the abundance that is everywhere, surrendering to a power greater than yourself, you will be able to experience the manifestation of your desire.”

“Have faith and trust in Spirit’s plan for you, and know that you are loved and cherished.”

Colette Baron-Reid, Spirit Animal Oracle Deck

All Things Happen for a Reason

There is great synchronicity in this wondrous universe of ours. Koala was not among the cards I drew this morning for my daily oracle. It just happened to be one among the ‘K’ animals, which fit for the letter of the day. But, it was a message that I really needed to hear. Perfect!

Until next time, dear friend, may you, too, ‘have faith and trust in Spirit’s plan for you”. You are loved and cherished!
