Frog: The frog teaches us about cleansing. When we need to cleanse our soul of
negative things around us it is the frog that send s us the message. When we feel
frustrated, overwhelmed, exhuasted, or just plain beat the frog teaches us to take
some time to energize ourselves again. Take deep relaxing breaths or take a long bath
turn of all the disatractions of the day & take care of yourself. Also tears are
extremely cleansing for the soul.
Grouse: The Grouse represents the the Sacred Spiral. This animal teaches us that we
often need to take take to meditate to figure out what direction our life is going in.
The other lesson is the Grouse could be offering you the gift of dance. Celebrate Lifes
Dance. Enjoy your life.
Lizard: The Lizard teaches us about our dreams. He represents the shadow side of reality.
He could be asking you to look to see what is trailing behind you, such as bad habits you
are trying to break, fears, insecurities & so on. If so maybe you need to just let them go
so that they are not on you tail. He also teaches to understand our dreams. If you are not
able to remember your dreams try kepping a dream record. Write down your dreams as soon as
you wake up while they are still fresh in your mind. Sometimes it helps us to understand
what is going on
Moose: The Moose teaches us about self-esteem. We need to feel good about our success.
We wor hard to do all the things we get in life be proud of yourself. I AM Somebody I
Have Worth. These arethings that we all need to tell ourselves sometimes. Be proud of
the things you achieve in life, & work for those goals you haven't met yet. Be Proud Of
Who You Are!
Mouse: The teaches us about scrutiny. It is a good thing to scrutinize things,
looking at detail & organization, but on the other hand if you do this to such a
degree that you have to shred everything to bits to see the insight you may not enjoy
what life has to offer. Look at things with an open mind, do what is safe & enjoy lifes
Opossum: This amazing animal is about diversion. When threatened it rolls over & plays
dead until the threat is gone. Then when least expected it jumps either to defend itself &
family or it jumps o leave the danger. It is positive when we face our fears but not to
the extent that we put ourselves or others in danger. Balance this lesson. Know when to
stay & fight also know when to get out while the getting is good.
Owl: The Owl represents deception. This does not mean that this winged one is bad it
means that it offers us many things. But its key lesson is that we are deceiving
someone/thing or we are being deceived. These are both very important things to learn.
People get hurt when deception is involved, becuase there has to be some type of trust
in order to be deceived. This can be little things like cheating while trying to quit
smoking, or dieting / it can also be damaging things so just remember that Honesty is
the best policy. I have a belief Don't ask me if you don't want the truth & this
pertains to everything, I will be honest when I have the answer.
Rabbit: This cute little guy teaches us about our fears. If you are afraid you may run & hide
or you may be so afraid that you put yourself in danger. Fear is something that everyone has
about one thing or another but intense fear is dangerous & off balance. Don't be so afraid of
life that you don't get to enjoy it.
Raccoon: This furry little animal is a thief / a bandit. They only take take what they need
to survive, they don't hoard. I am not saying go out & steal if you need it, I am saying that
if you don't have what you need then perhaps you need to work harder at acheiving the goals
that you set for yourself. If you have more than you need then maybe donating time or help to
a place that could use help then you you would not be keeping to much of yourself from life.
Life is a gift, share yourself with it.
Skunk: The Skunk teaches us about reputation. You are as good as your word. The Skunk has a
reputation he is cute from a distance but if they feel threatened they defend themselves with
the spray. Most animals won't mess with the Skunk because of this reputation. If you go around
stinking up the place with a bad attitude most people will not want work with you. If you are
open minded & do what you say you will do then more people will want to be a part of something
you are doing. Keeping your reputation in good standing is the key to success.
Squirrel: He means gathering. He teaches to prepare for the future. Don't be careless not fly
by the seat of your pants until it is time to retire. Plan for it. He also tells us that
sometimes we have gatherd too many things, worries workload...ect.. & maybe we need to lighten
Swan: This beautiful bird teaches us about grace. Being graceful in all that we do is
difficult sometimes, but it is worth working towards. Noone wants to be the bull in the
china shop. This bird is proud & elegant as it coasts across the pond never in such a
hurry that it forgets to be graceful. To achieve the gift of being graceful requires us
to balance our energies. Be full of pride not ego. Be tactful not hurtful. All people will
Turkey: The Turkey teaches us about the give away. If you have more than you need to
survive, share. Someone always needs help in life it is a gift to our soul for us not
to be selfish. Remember the great GiveAway between the Pilgrams & the Native Americans,
they both shared what they had to offer and it brought peace among the two peoples. If we
could all learn from this lesson then there would be less prejudice in this world.
Weasel: The Weasel's lesson is stealth. His teachings are " to look at the hidden messages"
If you sit in the outskirts looking in then you know more of what is happening than those
right in the middle of it all. With this we can be a good judge of character because we
usually have sat away & observed long enogh to know the facts of the situation. Use stealth
in your actions to get the job done quickly & accurately
Whale: The Whale is Lifes Record Keeper. They keep the records of all time. It is said that
if you require informatin about history the Whale is the one to ask. The Whale also teaches
us to reach deep down inside & find our own voice. Find yours, all living things have a certain
cry except for humans we do not have a unique cry or song so search to find yours it is
relaxing to just cry sometimes to relieve the pressures of life. Find your Song/Cry, and
Spider: The Spider creates the Web Of Life. Weaving in and out, creating lifes web.
She teaches us that the life web has been created but we can change the pattern or design
at anytime with decisive action. The other lesson is for us to be creative in our lives,
And don't get so wrapped up in the weaving of our lives that we are missing something that
life can offer.
Snake: This reptile teaches about transmutation. They teach us that we are to accept
all aspects of our lives. It also teaches us to shed the un-needed old stuff from our
lives, in order for us to enjoy the NOW. Don't live in the past, move forward and enjoy
all the wonders of life.
