Black Panther came to me in a vision this morning. I was asking for Guidance around a particular issue around romance. I saw myself in a dark forest sitting by a fire. I was covered in furs and very much alone. She walked up to me and I began to weep. I didn’t want her as my guide. Black Panther has been with me before when I was living my life as a single parent. Panthers are very solitary and tend to raise their young alone. I am tired of being alone.
She invited me to join her up in a tree where I could look down upon myself from a higher level. I could see that I was lonely and my body felt like an empty shell. I didn’t know if this was how others see me or how I see myself. As the vision was closing she gave me a small stone made of hematite.
Afterwards, I looked up the symbolism in the vision. Black Panther represents the darker feminine energy of the moon. She is very grounding and protective. She teaches one to be alone but not lonely. She is very strong, graceful and independent. She reminds me to climb my symbolic tree and look at things from a higher perspective.
Hematite is a very protective and grounding stone much like the panther herself. It brings a sense of calm and deflects negative energy as its stone has a mirror-like quality. I bought myself a Christmas present after reading this. I knew I wanted a bracelet to wear to remind me of my Panther Medicine. Here is another message I received today:
You love so much that you don’t need anyone else’s love to make you happy.
