This week the Guides ask us to examine our faith and determine whether there are any areas in which we have lost our faith.  Some may have lost their faith in human kindness.  Some may have lost faith in their own abilities.  Faith requires that we stop trying to exercise control and that we let go and trust that there is light in every lesson and that we will find our way through the meandering path of life.  Connecting with our inner spirit animal, the snake, can help us renew our faith.  When a snake’s scales become old and worn, the snake sheds it’s skin so that it may start anew.  Forgive the past.  Release it like a snake shedding its skin so that you may move forward with faith and light in your heart.
