LYNX

 

Keeper of the ancient secrets,
Teacher of the hidden skills,
Open my heart and mind to wisdom,
Fill my days with strengthened will.
Reveal the fearful truth of being,
The part of us we fail to see.
O lynx of smiling, hidden secrets,
Bring aid and wisdom now to me.

 

Secrets

Lynx is the keeper of lost magic
and occult knowledge.
Lynx is the guardian of the secrets
and, more importantly, the knower of the secrets.

Lynx medicine is a very specific type of clairvoyance.
If the medicine is strong in you, you will get mental pictures concerning people
and the secrets they hide.  You will see their fears, lies, and self-deceptions.
You never speak of these revelations - but you know.

With a Lynx totem, people will share their secrets with you.
They will take you into their confidence and you will "accidentally"
discover things about people (whether you want to or not).
You must be very careful not to break confidences.
Your words must be chosen carefully and used cautiously.
Strength through silence must be your motto.

You do not have to do anything with the secrets you learn,
you, like the Lynx, are the keeper of secrets.
Listen to your higher self.
