BLACK PANTHER CLAN - Eastern Gate - February 8, 2009
Click to Sign Up

The naming of a clan is a very sacred process. It is not dictated by the creativity alone of the facilitator, but is rather more of a download of information that best represents the existing energy of the group as a whole. Through intuition, meditation, inspiration, imagination, observation and deep listening the clan is named, not by a human, but through a human by the unseen energy source that connects us all one to another.

We are but reflections of one another, until we are reflecting only what is inside of our heart of hearts from our purest essence. And we will then each be one to another the most persistent of reminders of the greatness that lies within each of us. For it is then that we are projecting the most essential part of our highest and finest selves from the very core of our being. And so it is wise to pay attention to everything and everyone that comes into your space. Let no blessing go unnoticed and no message go unheard. Be not fooled by the wrapping paper on the gift or the cover on the book.

And so with this, we have the naming of this Addiction Alchemy tribe:

The Black Panther Clan


The power of Black Panther lies in his ability to walk with total strength of character and a courageous heart into the unknown, fully embracing the mystery of life and completely enabled to wend his way to his place of True Power with grace and confidence. His black coat is the perfect foil when working under cover of the night and he has full ability to defend himself, if need be. And it is in fact this ability to walk fearlessly into our own shadow with Black Panther, that allows us to turn our gifts fully into the light.

Those with Black Panther medicine are powerful seers, prophets, healers and agents of change, whose gifts most likely have been developing over the course of many lifetimes and through the school of hard knocks in their youth and young adulthood. It is usually in the middle years that the Black Panther really comes into her stride, unafraid of her own self, both shadow and light aspects and therefore never underestimating, nor overestimating anyone or any situation.

This powerful prophet sees people and situations with startling clarity. This can make others uncomfortable if they are not walking with integrity or if they are living in denial. For those who are not afraid of walking in truth, Black Panther people are a breath of fresh air, especially when they have tempered their insightful gifts with tact and compassion for the plight of others and for themselves.

Black Panther knows that darkness is a place to heal, to uncover the truth, to seek and find answers. Through dreams, the Black Panther teaches us to look inside of ourselves into those places that need healing, to embrace uncomfortable territory through self-discovery and courageously face what we may find!

The panther often signals a time of rebirth after a period of suffering and death on some level. This implies that an old issue may finally begin to be resolved, or even that old longstanding wounds will finally begin to heal, and with the healing will come a reclaiming of power that was lost at the time of wounding. Black Panther understands death and teaches people not to fear it, for out of death comes rebirth.

It is said, "that which does not kill us makes us stronger." It is this same idea that is awakened in the lives of those who open to the power of the panther totem. The panther marks a new turn in the heroic path of those to whom it comes. It truly reflects more than just coming into one's own power. Rather it reflects a reclaiming of that which was lost and an intimate connection with the great archetypal force behind it. In many cases, panther energy accompanies the activist and the advocate.

Panther is a powerful guide to have, always bringing a guardian energy to those to whom it comes. 

I will walk with you, but you must call to me to be with you only when you are ready to fully face yourself. I offer up my strength, my beauty, my stealth and my courage to guide you into the inner journey of self discovery. And I will help you as you step out into the world once again with all the gifts that I have led you to in full confidence, grace and ease.

Your ability to see into the hearts and minds of people can serve you well, when you embrace this knowledge with compassion. You will know what to say and when to say it. You will also know when to say nothing at all. Likely, you may find that your gift of sight which can penetrate the darkness so well, can lead you to a place of leadership, activism and advocacy. You may write books, make movies, create poems, songs and articles that reveal, through your profound inner vision, hidden truths dancing just below the surface, at the soul level of all humans, poised and ready to take shape on the planet.

Because of your courage to look into your own dark places, nothing escapes your finely tuned senses, instinct and intuition. After all, you cannot play a player. And you would know, because you have gone the distance, faced your own shadow, released judgment, learned your lessons and moved forward in life with the intent to shorten the suffering of anyone who is willing to have it be so! You are now part of the inoculation to mankind and to the world for whatever suffering you have experienced and endured.

This is precisely why you are able to embrace the unknown; because you have already done it and you have discovered that this is where EVERYTHING resides, all keys, all knowledge, all abundance in all things. You go into your dreams, into the situations of your life and you lie in wait, unafraid to examine your own egoic reactions, patterns of denial and distorted fears. And this reaps great rewards for you. For every time you peel down to your truest essence, your spirit is renewed, a deeper sense of self is born and you are transformed into an expanded, more authentic version of "You" and a new piece of your Soul is revealed to the world.

Within your beating heart and your razor sharp mind is the antidote which your very survival and existence anchors on the planet. However, it is when you fully step into your power as an advocate and an activist that your legacy will become permanently etched into the book of life and you will be a change agent for the entire world.

I am whole, healthy and happy.
I am a divine human being.
I face my future with courage and grace.
I see my reality through the eyes of love.
I use my gift of insight for the greater good of all.
I walk this world and embrace the mysteries to come.
My guides and guardians are with me whenever I need them.
The truth will set me free.
The choices I have made have all brought me to where I am now.
I embrace my shadow and honor my inner truth.
I express my deepest feelings with compassion for myself and others.
I explore my dreams.
I understand that endings are also new beginnings.
I embrace new beginnings and new opportunities in my life.
I am ready to step into my true power and embrace my full human potential.
I am an advocate for love.
I activate my courage to fulfill my destiny.
I pray for the release of all needless suffering.
I recognize the multi-dimensional levels of my reality.
I am patient with the process of my life.
