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.
Hawk flies above the world, looking down from its higher perspective to view life as a whole. Our lives are made up of important individual moments, but Hawk reminds us to keep a broader perspective and remember that life is expansive and ever connected. As the Messenger of the Gods, Hawk soars over us as a reminder that we are always being guided to the right path, even if it doesn’t feel like it in the moment. It is important to remember that the forces of the universe are always working towards your favor, as long as you are paying attention.
