Animal Totem - Grouse
By Susan Jolley
This Animal Totem is theGrouse - Sacred Spiral
The Grouse’s dance follows a spiral. The spiral is an ancient symbol of birth and rebirth and is one of the oldest known symbols for personal power. It is also a metaphor for personal vision and enlightenment. Think of a tornado or whirlpool as you follow the spirals that take you to the center - the center of the Universe or to the center of your being.
As you dance the sacred spiral contemplate the following: what are the qualities of movement in your world? What kind of reaction do you create with the energy you send into the Universe? Is your movement compatible with your greatest desires? Is your dance in tune with Mother Nature’s cycles? Do you have a dissipation of energy and a lack of control/discipline? (This is a signal that you have lost connection to the Source.) Is there a lack of intent behind the energy you are sending out? Do you feel like you are tail-spinning or going down the drain? Is your energy causing friction? Is your mind spinning out of control? This is a signal that you are not grounded.
Grouse medicine is an invitation to dance the sacred spiral. Contemplate all of these above questions and then dance to your sacred circle and follow it to your center.
Crystals that can help you with your dance are: (The list is long and it is my suggestion to go with the crystal(s) that you are visually drawn to. Those are the ones that will support you.)
