A2D...this is a great thread...don't give up!
Just wait for the right people to find you.
This is a useful site about the basics of all kinds of symbolism....lots to read.
I've worked with animal totems in the past, and my personal totem is deer, although I do admit I'm struggling to understand how that might represent
the more narky side of my personality at the moment.....tis a long story! Deer are about .....
Mostly sums me up.....but then there is that grizzly bear bit of me....maybe it's just because it's the time of year to hibernate....I dunno.
In addition, I find that animals pop up in our lives just to message us about stuff we need to know about or should be working with. Last year it was
woodpecker for me.....everyday they were on the birdfeeders, bringing their babies, hearing them in the woods when I walked the dog. They're all
about using your intellect to make progress and open doors, communication, being hardheaded in a way and showing real determination, just as I was
preparing to go back to college for the second time. Just now, I have a mouse.....the tiniest, fastest little field mouse.....somewhere in the house,
not doing any damage, trying to build nests, until I find them and tidy them up, conscienciously ignoring the humane trap I've set for her, filled
with all kinds of goodies so I can relocate her, and the babies she's carrying. Mice are about scrutiny.....I need to be looking at something very
closely, paying attention to all the tiny details.
And as for Crow....when I see crows I think cleverness....they not only know stuff, but they can work stuff out for themselves. Engineers in a way.
I really liked your meditation too....I might try that later today and see who appears. Thank you so much.
