Part 2: Desert - Breaking out of overwhelm
A Message from Jaguar
Breaking out of overwhelm
In this next stage of our adventure, we will journey into the desert. The deserts are magical places where mystery and mysticism abound. However, deserts are also places of exhaustion and emptiness. We each have periods in our life where we need to visit the desert. You humans succumb quite easily to overwhelm. It is not your fault for you have created such a complex world around yourselves. If you are feeling this overwhelm, you can use this short journey to pause and reset your tendencies.
Three creatures – desert-dwellers, are here for you. You may choose one of these three as your guide through the desert. Choose intuitively, rather than with your mind. Trust in your every intuitive footfall, that you learned in the jungle. Each of these desert dwellers are here to offer specific and different guidance in how to transform overwhelm into a higher possibility.
If this is your first step with me, you are right where you need to be. But if you feel you need to understand more about this journey, you can always go back and follow my footsteps from the beginning.

Listen to the meditation of resilience
I am Camel, the portal creature of resilience. I hold the key to traversing the many varying inner landscapes of the Dreamtime and specifically the Middle World. Many are the trials we meet. Deep are the wounds we carry. Many times we think of giving up and returning to our sleeping state of denial or distraction. I lend each voyager the inner strength to surmount all obstacles and stay the course of transformation.
