Animal Totem - Grasshopper
By Susan Jolley
This animal totem is Grasshopper – Uncanny Leaps Forward and the Chinese symbol for Luck and Abundance.
To the Iroquois, Grasshopper brings messages of glad tidings, a harbinger of good news. Do you know the Grasshopper only leaps forward, never backwards? The medicine of the Grasshopper is to take chances, to move on your hunches, trust your intuition/instincts. Are you taking chances? Do you have ideas and never act on them? Do you start to act on an idea and then start questioning yourself? Are you taking steps backwards? Keep asking yourself the hard questions and, where you have a “no” answer in relation to moving forward, taking a leap or trusting your instincts/intuition, dig a little deeper to find out why.
Crystals that can help you remember Grasshopper’s medicine are:
Trust in your Instincts/Intuition
