Animal symbolism & Animal Totems or Animal Medicine is shared across cultures all over the world, mainly passed on through stories and teachings in Indigenous cultures. Mother Earth has many lessons to teach us, and she connects us with our animal brethren to remind us that we share this world with an unimaginable amount of intuitive and intelligent beings. A symbolic encounter can be at any level – it could be a random sighting of an animal you don’t normally see, or an animal appearing in your dreams. Basically, the animal making itself known to you. Take these encounters to heart and use the lessons animal medicine teaches us to improve ourselves and respect the natural world around us.
As bear goes into torpor, they find a dark, secluded place to spend their next few months. Then, they spend the next few months simply breathing. Bear teaches us that we must go into darkness, we must enter the void of the unknown, in order to understand who we are within. Allow yourself to be simply within yourself and outside of yourself at the same time. Quit focusing so much, and just breathe.
