Animals have souls too and are Spirit in physical form, choosing the body and experience that best supports their journey and the collective tapestry weaving and unfolding. I have always seen them as equals and one and the same as humans. In fact, they have been, and are, my best friends, partners, co-creators, teachers/guides and students, soul mates, and twin souls. As a little girl, they were all I felt most connected to and where I felt most comfortable being in their company.
I remember a channeler once looking at my aura and energetic field and saying how many animal spirit guides I had around me – more than he’d ever seen around someone and – and even my dear Laura sharing, long ago, that she’d never met someone who’s been an animal in past lives more than me (at least at the time that she shared this). 😉
Needless to say, I love and get these sweet souls (as I know many of you do too and would share similar feelings and experiences) and know that they have much to teach us, which is why much of my life is devoted in helping to be a voice for them and their important messages/ways of teaching us, and helping people to recognize they are just like us – helping to look beyond appearances and feel into the heart and spirit.
Yes, stop judging a book by its cover extends to all books.
While I love them all, over time I’ve discovered the ones that speak most to my journey and are constantly around me (like rabbits, horses, butterflies, hawks, whales, dolphins, geese, tortoises…and others I wear on my skin as sacred tattoos). Although new animal spirit guides will wander in and out when needed and in cycles (like many of the ones I post photos of and share about in my blog and on social media, as they flow into my life).
And some in fact are my familiars.
I came into this life with a huge love for horses, likely because of my repetitive and transformative lives as one, but discovered this has been part of my integration and healing process that then has led me forward. And while horses will always be powerfully and soulfully connected, since there is that mirror of recognition and resonance, I’ve now moved into what I like to call the “tiny horse” realm.
This, of course being rabbits.
Why do I call them “tiny horses” you ask?
Well, because in fact they are more closely related to horses than they are to a rat or mouse, contrary to belief.
Rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents, although do share similarities, but some major differences including their teeth and the fact that lagomorphs are herbivores, whereas rodents are omnivores so they have digestive differences.
There’s also differences in male reproductive parts, whereas rodents have baculum (penis) bones and rabbits do not. Humans, horses, cetaceans (whales and dolphins), and marsupials also don’t have baculum bones.
This may be one of the reasons rabbits are considered close relatives to horses because they both seem to have retained primitive traits from the most primitive boreoeutherian mammals.
Rabbits and horses have the same digestive systems, eat the same kinds of foods, have similar behaviors, sensitivities, prey instincts, and body language, not to mention they are amazing mirrors for therapy work on so many levels. Their faces and heads can literally look like a horse too, minus the long ears.
If you know about horses it definitely will help you to understand rabbits, so no surprise of my own evolution with this.
And a new “tiny horse” is on his way into my life in just 10 days! Yes, I’m doing the countdown. It’s been a long, patient journey awaiting his arrival, due to our travels, but he still hasn’t been adopted and that means our connection has been solidified through our telepathic journeys.
Just two days ago I solidified things further by ordering all of his new supplies, gifts, and special herbal and nutritional items to make him feel right at home and fortified in well being. We don’t have much room in this small treehouse up in Lake Tahoe, so I couldn’t go all out as I wanted to with Faery bunny extravaganza, but he will have the best of nutrition and loving touches of which I can integrate in here to meet his needs. Will be tight, but full of love.
And in the one photo I do have of him, which is what drew me in in the first place, I do have to say he looks like a tiny horse for sure.
Excited for the journey we will share for however long is meant to be.
I will continue to be a voice for the spirits in animal bodies, especially through my magickal rabbit friends, as our Cosmic connection aligns most with my own.
Today in the States, as we’re already the 18th of May here in Australia, would have been Cosmo’s 11th Birthday. He’s as strong as ever in my heart and life and has been traveling with us here Down Under. I haven’t much time to post, as we’re heading to Sydney today and have a drive ahead, but wanted to honor him with some animal friends we’ve encountered in the last couple of days since I posted. Yesterday, the 16th, happened to be our family parakeet, Chuck’s anniversary of passing 6 years ago, and today, the 17th is also my 3rd Cousin, Nella’s 70th birthday (whom I just met for the first time in Australia), as well as my sweet friend, Hillary Schneider’s 34th birthday of Epona Rise (you may remember her from our Reiki and Horse Retreat a couple summer’s back). So lots to celebrate!
We had a tremendous time in Tathra seeing more black swans and kangaroos, exploring amazing Bournda Lagoon, Hobart Beach, and Moon Bay (providing us intimate private time with Nature, since it was all secluded except for us). And yesterday in Canberra we explore Black Mountain Nature Reserve, climbing the mountain and trekking some offbeat tracks, encountering us with wallabies and kangaroo in the wild. So amazing! And the gifts continue with feathers galore and even wallaby fur. Shamanic magick all around and loving having all my animal brothers and sisters with me close. A wonderful gift of love, harmony, and mutual reverence, as well as feeling of being close to my little ones who are off world, as they make me think of them so much.
I love you Cosmo! And I’m loving our time here in Australia. Enjoy these photos.
Two nights ago this precious soul’s journey became entwined with mine. Fiver is his name, which immediately came to me when I embraced my role as his guardian, caregiver, and bridge worker to support his soul’s choices. The name, Fiver, comes from a favorite story of mine – Watership Down – the name of a fragile, but powerfully gifted rabbit with psychic insight who initiates the journey of his fellow rabbits of the warren to their safety and freedom with his gift of vision and sixth sense. Five also happens to be my favorite number since I was a child and the energy it carries of big, swift, and sometimes surprisingly good change is fitting.
Very unfortunately Fiver became badly injured by our cats, but I managed to save him in the middle of the night when I woke and knew what was going on. It was not the first time, as another of this little one’s family was not as lucky about a week or two ago. That first incident took place on an ominous night where we felt a 5.7 earthquake that had rumbled from within Earth 70 miles away, and two large aftershocks. Following the earthquake, the incident with the mouse took place and then I went into a dream awareness state where it felt like a parallel reality had been cracked open by the earthquake and there in our place and walking through our room was a woman with short blonde hair who thought it was her place and didn’t understand why we were there.
This has happened before in our Orange County home where a parallel reality of a man living in our house on another timeline began to appear to me and my rabbit Joy and we would both feel his presence after my night experience of him walking past our bed just like this woman. And I would smell cigarette smoke in my room at various occasions when there was none. My room in that home seemed to be the nucleus and portal, which became apparent when I hung my painting, Once in a Blue Moon, on the wall of my two rabbits, Nestor and Joy, and that same night I woke seeing elves, faeries, gnomes and the like crawling out of it and running through the house.
Needless to say, shifts continue here and two nights ago Fiver was part of another one when he decided to emerge….likely, in part, he came in to seek warmth and food, but he and I have discovered much more of our connection through this sad yet seemingly deliberate unfolding.
Little Fiver was quite traumatized, as you can imagine, and badly injured on his lower half of the body, unable to use his back legs (not sure if his lower back was also injured or just his legs), which reminded me right away of my sweet rabbit Cosmo.
I immediately made him a warm, soft bed in a cookie tin that first night and put some food in it for him.
I found it amazing that at one point yesterday he was sitting up and I watched as he placed one hand over one of his legs that was injured (and exactly where there appeared to be a bruise/darkened area at his joint), and then his other little human-like hand over the other far worse off leg.
I swear he was giving himself Reiki or at the very least was trying to heal and ease the pain in his legs. Incredible!
The next morning (today) he was still with us and had moved to the opposite side of the tin, ate a bit, and pooped. I helped prop him up and gave him more fresh food. He seemed to love bread crumbs the best and heartily ate and drank for the first half of the day and pooped and peed. That was a good sign.
He was still very anxious, but after giving him a lot of Reiki and others sending him some too, he seemed to calm down nicely and then went into a slumber, only stirring a bit here and there. He seemed to be slowing down and needing to rest. I felt he was in preparation and the energy had provided him the peace to be able to process everything and get to a centered place.
I had called the wildlife care facility up here as soon as they opened in the morning yesterday, who provided me my slim options. They said, in all honesty, with wild mice that are brought in, they will euthanize them and feed them to the hawks and falcons they have in their care there, as normally they buy mice for this. Or, I could care for him.
While the euthanizing part sounded like a potentially peaceful option, if Fiver wanted that, the rest he picked up on and it felt traumatizing to him (despite being part of the circle of life) so when I checked in with him he gave me an immediate “no”.
The situation in general, with the cats, the idea of the hawks (spirit guides of mine as well) all again reiterated the nature of things, but also helped me to continue deepening with this and heal more of the natural tendencies to judge it. As while I embrace it, understand, and know the bigger picture, a part of me knows this “nature” has evolved and wasn’t always “the way”. There’s no coincidence as to why I am drawn to rabbits (and also have had tortoises), as it feels more to be of this harmony, and yet I continually draw more to me that invites wholeness regardless of the human reality I am involved in currently.
To truly love, one must love all the ways that All That Is expresses loving itself.
Anyway, upon further inquiry with Fiver, and presenting him his options, he opted wanting to stay with me and receive the love and comfort, which to him outweighed the pain.
I wholeheartedly supported him and he’s been with me ever since.
I spent most of my entire day yesterday caring for him and being with this “heaven on earth” majesty all around me that was so surreal it overwhelmed me and was the perfect essence to blanket us in, not to mention created such a beautiful world for little Fiver to experience – or was it that his energy and our connection was being mirrored in our surroundings?
It was a day of stillness and peace.
And I enjoyed seeing him enjoy his food and feeling cared for.
I’ve checked in time and time again and he continues to want to stay. It’s my commitment to honor his guidance above all else, knowing the importance of honoring a soul’s wishes, as well as the path that has been chosen between contracts made in the bigger picture, overall.
I kept him fed, gave him water which he also sipped, and had him next to me all day no matter where I was, giving him love, Reiki, and little rubs as he slept.
I wasn’t sure he would make it through the night, but did have him next to me to sleep, alongside all of my crystals to support him. Nestor, Joy, Gaia, and Cosmo, my loves who have transitioned already, have been supporting the process and await him whenever he decides, to help guide him lovingly on the other side.
Between all of us we have a bridge created to assist him on both ends and this is part of the message I’ve continued to received with all I’ve experienced with my animal companions and all of the animals that cross my path and come into my life, is that I am one who is here to help animals cross over and I’ve been in “training” so to speak to fully embody the unconditionally compassionate and detached place where I can love them fully, deepen my communication with them, and do what is in their best interests and highest good solely.
And this has deepened my connection to how much my soul is invigorated by the exchange and care I am blessed to give and have with these beautiful and powerful souls in animal bodies. Animals are everything to me and to have the honor of this place in supporting their transitions and soul path choices is one I do not take lightly, but fully embrace with overflow of love.
It is also in preparation for a near future-me manifestation that is in process of coming to be step-by-step.
But, as mentioned, there are layers to Fiver being with me. And one connection is with Cosmo, since he is very much reflecting the same special needs that he did.
I had to take a break, as little Fiver has just passed right next to me as I’ve been writing of this beautiful experience with him.
I will continue now….I needed time to support that, honor the moment and him, and do the energy work to help. Oh, such sweetness he’s brought.
It seemed as if last night that could have transpired, but his strength amped up this morning, despite not wanting to eat. It felt like he was testing out his limitations as he was deciding and that he had been doing soul searching last night, as well as receiving all of the support from those guiding him and the crystals.
Fiver had refused all food and water this morning, but kept wanting me to rub him and comfort him, as his body was starting to prepare.
He moved around quite a bit and his body started looking much better and rejuvenated, his eyes keeping open rather than closed like they were pretty much all day and night before, and even had used one of his legs, which was not possible before.
I’d placed a small quartz point in with him, as well as a black tourmaline.
I kept him close and kept comforting him, never more than inches from him at all times.
A friend, literally minutes before his passing, had offered to do some gentle Qigong for bruising and broken bones. He was open to this. I understand now why he wanted it.
Suddenly, he had begun to move around looking more like his mouse self, but filled with peace and strength…and he got up on all fours, which he had not been able to do, although was trying all morning, walked a bit, then was able to push off his back legs and do a little mouse jump a few inches forward.
Incredibly, where he jumped was DIRECTLY over and centered above the tiny quartz point I had placed in there – the point facing toward his head and almost like he was riding a crystalline rocket to the Cosmos, as you can see here (I was so wow’d I’d immediately grabbed my camera, as it was incredulous).
He was alert, beautiful, and stood there exhibiting his fullness and how he once used to look for about a half to three quarters of a minute with his once limp legs now holding him strongly.
Both Dave and I had witnessed this. And then he suddenly went stiff and his spirit left, leaving him to sink softly upon the quartz point – his resting place and conduit to travel to the Beyond.
I knew he was gone.
It was without struggle, without noise or anquish, it was without any feeling of stress…It was simply like he literally was whole, released from pain,had a surge of energy, and took to flight, just as I’d seen earlier with a Raven that had messaged me outside the window and did the same.
I gently picked him up and placed him in my palm with my other loosely around him. I blessed him, did energy with his Chakras, and guided him to his friends awaiting him.
I placed him for now gently in his bed and covered him with a little cloth blanket. I will prepare a proper burial for him.
He looked and felt like a little, precious angel in my hands and his body had completely rejuvenated…his fur looking so lovely in comparison to the day before and his limp, lifeless legs looking strong in the position he now came to rest in.
What an honor. What a gift. What a healing and soul embodiment he has provided.
I had missed caring for my little ones and Fiver returned that deep soul joy and love I had an empty space with. And with the clarity he helped me to anchor and realize within myself and how this is my path and will continue, I feel this greater peace and wholeness…a deep healing and soul retrieval once again.
This dear little mouse, who had his own path I assisted, and lavishing him with love and comforts he’d never known, helped me into expanding bigger by claiming parts of who I am and affirming I’m on path.
Avia Venefica shares about Symbolic Mouse Meaning:
“Our ancient ancestors observed their affinity for ground-burrowing, and likened this to mice being ‘one with the Mother’ (Mother Earth, that is). This ground-loving behavior was also seen as a connection to the Underworlds (or Otherworlds, depending upon your source of reference). This kind of connection makes the mouse a kind of mediator between physical life and recycling life (spirit energies in transition). This Earth and Underworld connection continues in western, medieval Europe, where folk superstitions tell of mice possessing the ability to carry souls of humans who have passed from this physical life.
In Native North American Indian symbolism, tribes such as the Navajo established the mouse having governance over the southern quadrant of their medicine wheel, which represents a macrocosmic view of life. The southern quadrant of the medicine wheel holds sacred tenets such as new beginnings, connection with the Mother (Nature/Earth). It also represents youthfulness and innocence. Because the mouse is quite modest, and connected so closely with the Mother Earth, it has gained grained prominence in this and other branches of Native wisdom.
Mice are incredibly prolific, as mentioned earlier, and can bear up to a dozen pups every four to six weeks. That’s a lotta mice. This is symbolic of fertility, abundance, and expansion. For example, a mouse in your awareness could be symbolic of your ability to mass-produce new births in the form of new ideas, development, creativity, social connections – any number of opportunities are available for us to give birth often and abundantly, the mouse is a reminder of that.”
All of this rings in for me on more levels than I can express here since it would make this a very long post.
Fiver definitely whispered many things to my heart and soul and the symbolism of his tiny, but mighty mouse soul spoke deeply in a way only one so innocent and pure could for me.
Mice also remind us of being ultra aware, seeing what is right before us, and then to take action in alignment with that. They want us not to neglect things we might overlook, nor to scatter our energy, and to stay aware of everything going on to avoid dangers and pitfalls. In this way we can get ultra focused. In this way they are showing us the path to the bigger things, by focusing on and discerning the little things in the moment, adapting, and remaining determined.
Thank you Fiver, for the sweetness you embody, for the love and healing that you nurtured my heart with, for the confirmation of my role, for reaffirming and keeping me laser focused on the path I’m now on, and for infusing abundant inspiration to the prolific creative projects I have in the works.
You are honored and will be physically missed, but I am grateful to have you as a soul guide joining with the rest of our family, that is now yours too.
To hold you Fiver in my hands – so beautiful that you are – and caress your cheeks, head, and injured, fragile little perfectly imperfect body was like touching an angel’s wings.
You are my angel of hope sweet Fiver, forever more.
With all of the shifts I’ve experienced recently and recent expansion through that, the creative flow has been directly affected with greater inspiration.
This includes the channeling of Magick Stones that were on hold through navigating the recent challenges.
I’m happy to share that I am back in full swing again and feel reinvigorated with a creative burst of artistic expression.
I have 5 custom pre-order requests that will be focused on first, but 6 more stones have come into my experience, making 11 total I’ll be working on.
That also means that there will be 6 others available once I complete the first 5 orders.
So, if you were interested in one, perhaps there will be a perfect reflection of you in this new batch of potent Magick Stones.
You can contact me if interested in one for yourself and would like to pre-order.
Otherwise, these 6 Magick Stones will become available once completed.
The 6 stones to come run from $33 – $44 + $7 shipping/handling.
Until then, I will be sharing the stones along the way that are completed.
Today I start with the first, which is quite the potent stone.
When you receive your stone you will be provided information about its medicine, any animal spirit guides, symbolism, etc., along with the sacred area it was found, and the energy it holds to support you with.
Here is an example of the one I’m shipping today, below.
Capturing photos of these stones is incredibly challenging, as they are sealed with a protective, durable, glossy enamel over the acrylic paint. So any light source at all creates a shine and glare, plus makes it hard to get photos with clarity.
However, these images should provide an example. As you can see, the images are revving up in this new batch.
The stones are exponentially more beautiful in person and that is when you can truly appreciate the hand work and energy.
Even though they are sealed, you still want to be very gentle with them and treat them sacredly, as they are still delicate and like anything sacred, you’d want to mutually share honor with them.

While we’ve been on our grand adventure journeying around in the Magick Bus to where we feel called to integrate, retrieve, move, and heal energy from the places we land, I’ve been surrendering myself to how this energy wants to move through me.
Sometimes that may not look like much, as the process is internal, but when the energy moves through me into a form that needs to be channeled that can look something like sound healing, inspired messages and ideas, support for my writing and creative projects, and even “Magick Stones”.
In general, the energy guides me and I listen.
And one thing that channeled through me was the message that I was to create some special Nature Portals from the magickal areas we have been visiting that would help one walk through the energies on their own sacred journey or vision quest.
Particular stones would speak to me that were meant for this project and these were turned into the creations you see here – Magick Stones.
Each Magick Stone embodies its own sacred energies and combined with the visions that channeled through for each, they also carry an individual medicine and speak their messages to us via Animal, Plant, and Magickal Being Spirit Guides.
I didn’t know why I was to create these – only that I needed to. And so I did.
I didn’t know that they would be revealed publicly, nor that they would be offerings for the collective when I first received the message.
But as I completed one after another, it became clear that these were in fact not for me, although the process of channeling and creating them was clearly something for me to do.
It has been a joyful experience and a wonderful side project that has been a way to move energy through and again embrace however that is meant to look.
I had already worked with the energies myself so I realized that these would be another way for others/the collective to work with the sacred energies of Mother Earth beyond simply reading about the areas and energies I share in my blog, or seeing photos that I post.
These are tangible, live energies that will call to whom they are meant to be and work with.
Each has a power and you’ll know which it is that can assist you when you gaze upon them and allow them to speak to your heart.
The ten Magick Stones you see here have all been hand painted by myself with acrylic paints and sealed with a protective, durable, glossy enamel.
They each embody a Chakra energy and color and then one is White and two others are Black. You will be able to sense what energies they all carry, by their Spirit Guides and the colors that channeled through.
They make great meditation stones, intention stones, companions at your work space, by your bedside or for dream time work under your pillow. They can also be placed in your garden, in plant pots, or in any sacred space, healing room, or altar.
But they are Spirit Guides ready to work with you and be engaged to assist you walking through new doorways of experience on any or all levels – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Whether for yourself or as a gift to someone you know it would be perfect for, these carry a lot of energy not only of their own, but infused with the integration of energy I’ve experienced in these place, with Reiki by myself, and a lot of love and attention to detail in bringing their spirit into manifestation.
No two are alike…each is a unique creation.
Due to my traveling and things not always being accessible, I can only offer these to people living in the U.S. right now.
International orders and shipping not available.
When you place your order I will include with your Magick Stone a signature card that will also detail where each stone is from and their Spirit Guide energies.
I am guided not to reveal their origin or to go into detail about their energies until you receive your Magick Stone so that your choice is based on what you feel rather than details provided.
Let your heart guide you.
This is part of their message. Out of your head and into your heart.
I don’t know if there will be more of these in the future or not, as I’m simply channeling the messages.
The stones either speak to me or they don’t and those that do let me know if they want to be revealed as Magick Stones in this way.
So, these could be the only ten stones I create, or at some future time, more might come to me.
As with all things in my life right now, I only live in the moment and support that energy wanting through at the time.
I hope you enjoy these Magick Stones as much as I have enjoyed bringing them to life and having them with me. It’s been like having a bunch of friends all chatting with me every day they’ve been in my presence.

I’ve posted this link (below) before, but felt guided to share it again so that you can take a moment to breathe in your intentions and discover what animal spirit guide is by your side right now with a message of support to assist you with them.
This is a great way to put closure to the current year, by focusing on the energy that will open doors for you in the new year.
Take your time to focus and be clear with one particular area of your life you would like support with, or something larger you are wanting to manifest for the year ahead.
I decided to explore The Enchanted Forest twice.
The first time was in asking a broader question to assist me with 2016 intents I have.
The second time was in asking a very “now” question to support some anxiety I’ve been working through around putting closure to this year and accomplishing projects at hand in order to do so.
My animal spirit guide wisdom was perfect.
For the first I received:
The Butterfly ~ Transformation, Acceptance, Gratitude
The ultimate symbol of transformation is now an integral part of your life. Be glad, for you are the butterfly!
The butterfly energy will allow you to continually transform, gradually lifting your level higher and higher as you cycle through the stages of birth, crawling, cocooning and flight for each new stage of your life.
And as you go through this process, over and over, learn to accept that each stage is a necessary part of transformation. Butterfly energy will help you not only accept, but actually enjoy the early crawling stage, as you learn new skills and new ways of being. This energy will also help you understand that the chrysalis stage, wrapped in a cocoon with direction unclear, is a necessary state before you can emerge in your full glory.
And as you finally emerge as a butterfly, something that will happen to you many times in your lifetime, stretch out your beautiful wings and fly, enjoying life to the fullest, engrossed within this moment and this moment only, as you drink the nectar of the garden and give thanks for the many blessings of your life.
And then, of course, you will do it all over again, for you are the butterfly.
This made so much sense on a multitude of levels, especially since I continue to be in the chrysalis stage within my cocoon and will be for a while longer. And also because long, long ago butterfly had been received to me as my symbol for my life’s work.
The second I received was equally perfect in message to assist me with flow right now:
The Doe ~ Effortlessness, Awareness, Intention
You are blessed indeed to have the beautiful doe as your power animal. She appears delicate, but she is very strong. Her strength comes from her deep connection to all that surrounds her. She will teach you to stand within the moment, quiet and observant, sensing all that is, feeling each leaf of the forest as a deep part of your being.
She will also teach you lightness, lightness of the spirit and of the feet. With a deep intuitive sense of what is, you will know exactly when to take action and to do so decisively, moving quickly and gracefully in response to your knowing. She will teach you to sense the world around you so deeply and instinctively that you are always one step ahead of the events coming your way.
Let her light spirit fill you with the freedom and joy of being, so that you bound and leap through life effortlessly, always sure-footed, always deeply attuned, even when entering a new part of the forest. She will help you welcome the new experiences of life, giving a joyous welcoming to new beginnings.
As the doe, you will learn to be fearless, to trust your intuition completely and know that a deep awareness and connection with the world, combined with a belief in yourself, is the best possible protection there is.
That was definitely supportive and I could feel a release and relief in reading Doe’s message reminder to me to sink deeper into right now.
So now it’s your turn!
Take your own journey into the Enchanted Forest here to receive a supportive message:
And if you DO journey into the Enchanted Forest, I’d love to hear what Animal Spirit Guide was awaiting you. Please leave a short note in the comments with the friend that met you there.
Magickal blessings to you!!
Lizards have been around a lot recently, especially since Sedona, and when I explored their symbolism in more depth I realized just why. Just yesterday four showed up very prominently and in one case was walking alongside us for a while.
With everything in my life changing, reminding me of the conscious life transition I made when I lived in Sedona some 18+ years ago, it is no wonder they are supporting the journey with their medicine.
I love what Ina Woolcott shares in her article:
The reason being is that it is SO on-point and reflects EXACTLY what I/we’re experiencing that it is a fantastic reflection and made me just that much more absorbed with these little lizard friends. She basically reiterated the same words I’d just finished sharing right before I saw her article. Love it!
Here’s what Ina shares in case you are also finding Lizard showing up in your life, or have Lizard as your power animal, have been dreaming about them recently, or are going through similar life shifts that calling upon Lizard can assist you with:
“…Lizard medicine is the companion of every day waking reality, where our dreams are studied before they are manifested physically…
If Lizard is your power animal, heed your own intuition before anyone else’s. Lizard will aid you in becoming more detached from situations in your life. Now and again it is required to be detached, to separate yourself from others, to succeed in what is necessary. Lizard will also show you how to leave the past in the past! To move on and quit being attached to what has been. Lizard is proposing immediate change in one or more areas of your life. You may need to let go of old ideas, patterns, belief systems, habits, actions or lifestyle because the old may threaten you in some way now. It is time to let go. Lizard prompts the need to go within and examine your present reality and then, move with confidence and utmost assuredness into a new chapter of your life.
One of the most interesting traits of the lizard is the ability to break off their tails to escape predators. The tail is left behind writhing, to take the predators attention off them, in order to flee. However, they are only able to perform this feat once, as the new tail which grows to replace the old one consists of cartilage instead of vertebrae. Lizards power lies in the quality of being able to rescue himself from danger by leaving a part of himself behind. As lizard only has the ability to lose his tail once, you need to make any choices wisely as the consequences may be experienced for a very long time hereafter!
Lizards are very sensitive to vibrations from the ground, they are adept at subtle perception. They have amazing hearing capacity, and with their sharp eyes they are able to sense the most minute of movements. If lizard is your power animal, you have the ability to utilize all aspects of psychic perception.
The psychic characteristics to be found in the lizard teaches us how to awaken our abilities by choosing one path over another that honour every part of our lives. Lizard is a powerful power animal to have, revealing your weaknesses, your strengths and prompting the energy of change.”
Thank you Lizard for your supportive wisdom and guidance with the immediate and major life changes I am embracing.
Duck, Duck, Goose!
This Goose crossed my path and as always I like to explore animal spirit medicine to see what symbolism is being reflected to me, along with any pertinent messages or supportive energy are being gifted and channeled my way.
This will be just a quick little share for anyone also interested in Goose symbolism or has been connecting with Goose a lot recently, as I need to run off to Cosmo’s chiropractic appointment.
Goose symbolism is quite inspiring, contrary to maybe some of the ideas people have about them.
It includes that of loyalty, forging ahead with bravery and confidence, teamwork and comradery, protection, clear communication, determination, dedication, fellowship, fidelity, fertility, and the balance of knowing when to lead or follow.
They also symbolize compassionate keepers of the community and embody the sacred circle and sanctity of the cycles of life.
Geese also happen to be vegan. So they symbolize a veggie and fruit diet and that this may be in alignment for you, or to incorporate more of these foods into your life – got that one covered. 😉
One really cool thing about Geese is that they never leave one of their own behind for any reason. They will stay with the sick and injured until they are either well again, or to support them as they transition. Now that’s loyalty and commitment for you!
They are extremely gifted in navigating, so they assist us in discerning our own paths in life and the choices that we’re presented.
They have amazing communication skills that they use in teamwork to help each other and protect one another. This protection quality also shows up in how they will fend fiercely for their young.
Gotta admire and respect these wonderful beings for what they demonstrate as example for us.
I posted this on Facebook, but feel guided to share it here as well.
I had such a vivid dream last night about Orcas and because of my connection with animals, I never take their messages lightly.
It definitely felt like a plea for help, with its disturbing elements, on both an individual species level and grander level collectively.
Their medicine is so potent as Animal Spirit Guides – see Spirit of Orca
While this dream felt collective in nature, there are always so many layers to dreams and I am embracing the personal through it as well.
Perhaps it also means I will be seeing them when in Iceland this February to commune in person.
Whatever it means, I have been carrying them with me all day and listening to what they have to share.
It’s interesting to note that there have been a series of Orca sightings super close to the Southern California shores this month (right where I live), I just discovered: Killer Whales Draw California Crowds Out To Sea.
There was a blessed event too this month – a baby Orca born, which is good news: Newborn Orca Spotted Near B.C.’s Gulf Islands
These “Creators of the Cosmos”, as their wisdom is said to symbolize, have the ability to convert raw matter into stars, planets, etc., to free the soul into its innate expansion, and teach the ability to seal and repair fractured souls and energy leaks (embody wholeness). They also use the vibrational energy and harmonious frequency of song to heal, while assisting humans in finding their soul’s song.
If you have a moment and feel called, please send them, our animal brothers and sisters, and Mother Earth some healing love from your heart.
