About Animal Medicine:
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.
The medicine of heron is self-reflection. Heron teaches us balance, to stand on our own feet and see ourselves for who we really are, as well as who we want to be. By utilizing self-reflection, we can acknowledge and face the challenges we harbor inside ourselves. We can see the traits that are not suiting us, and us this acknowledgement to decide who we foresee ourselves to be. With self-reflection in mind, we must be patient with ourselves, and develop your strength. Patience is the seed that growth grows from.
