The goose reminds us that we often reach out to those we love, whether peers or family. When  we do this we must be sure that this is the choice we wish to make. Look deep into our hearts and see the truth we need to see. Do not start something you do not intend to finish.

When you see the goose, life is gonna take an abrupt change for a moment, do not fret. It will come back to its path.wp-image-2116412784jpg.jpg

If the goose is your spirit animal, you will often make sacrifices for the whole of the family. basing your choices off of what’s best for the family.

You believe that there is one special person for everyone out there and you will make a devoted and attentive spouse.

You ultimate manifestation is a good life for your family.

wp-image-855155809jpg.jpgMost times seeing a goose is a good sign of long companionship .

Strange when I see this animal and I take 3 days to write about it and its spot on for my emotions this week.

Darn.. next time I will look it up that day!

Believe in our universe and It talks to me..

Cat Spirit Animal

So you think that everything has to flow according to plan? Cat is here to tell you that there is magic afoot, and to toss those plans out the window. Something bigger and better is just around the corner.

-Symbolic message from the Cat(

I find myself getting my hopes up all the time only to be let down. Being excited for the future but setting myself up for failure. Setting expectations has been my downfall in alot of opportunities.
I do this cause im stubborn and I want to learn my way. I want to attain the goals I set for each endeavor. But its all for my greater good if something I THINK I desire, does not play out. Accepting all with little resistance for that negitive energy to harbor. Having a confidence to know that I will make a better choice the next time around. Notice and Be grateful for the blessings I take for granted. Handle each challenge or adventure with confidence and love.

The Cat opens our eyes to the spirit world and reminds us we can create whatever we want to create. All that is required is to beleive in yourself and be true to your word. The world has blessed you with many tools and skills you need to complete what you desire in this world. Don’t stand still and watch it all go by. Focus on your dreams now and surround yourself by joy

Such a beautiful drive down the road. Looking at all the beautiful mountians. Then bam! A poor deer connects paths with this Chevy.  A drop in my heart makes me lose my breath.  I look in the mirror and see the poor deer limp away. Some research was then put into the symbolic meaning of deer. Here is what I found.

Having the deer as totem means that you like to stand back and observe. You look for the safest and peaceful way to present it’s self.

Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn’t being said.

Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so we can share our open-heartedness with others.

While in the woods this weekend. I had a large amount of bees come land on me. They can see royalty and stay productive.

The Bee reminds us to make our lives productive while the sun shines and to enjoy the nectar of efforts. No matter how great the dream is, there is the promise of fulfillment if we pursue our dreams.

  Cricket

Cricket totem symbolizes good fortune. Cricket will assist you in finding new vibrational energies, enhanced intuition and psychic abilities. He may appear when grounding is needed when you use your psychic abilities. Cricket’s chirp is usually a happy one and can indicate a resurgence of your inner voice. He is similar to the grasshopper in that he is a jumping creature. He teaches you to leap over and leave behind difficult or troublesome situations. He will get you where you need to go effortlessly.

Badger Totem and Medicine

If you are experiencing badger medicine, you are likely in the middle of something intense, and you will not let go until it’s finished. This can be only for a period of time, or it can be the way you operate in life. Just be sure to use your aggression for good.


Defense – Protection – Independence – Confidence – Persistence in our Pursuits – Fierceness – Grounding – Individuality – Assertiveness – Self Reliance – Willingness – Determination – Eagerness – Strong Will – Focus – Strategy 


The badger has many things to remind us every day! find a way to remind your self. I like the idea of putting up posters to remind me of the power they hold.

If the will to fight to survive is what you seek, then the badger is the animal for you. This spirit has the aggressiveness that you seek to grasp what you desire in your life. The badger can see all the roots to the fruits of life while he sleeps in his little hole. Knowing the back door to everlasting medicine. Know to be the protector of medicine practitioners. Being able to respond quickly in a crisis is one of the powers the badger has to offer.

Badger is always willing to persist in it’s endeavors. Those of the badger are often times not appreciated by their comrades through life because they will be the one’s who insist on carrying the ball to the end zone. Strength comes from having Badger as your totem.  You will often be the boss, the one everyone fears. You will get the goal accomplished and keep the company afloat with Badger as your teacher.

Lesson From Badger Is: Aggressiveness

Lesson From Badger Is: Aggressiveness control it for the greater good of your soul.

Badger also represents alliances, so you’ll definitely need to make sure that you are not burning your bridges along the way.. Therefore, Badger Medicine is also about forming alliances with different people so that everyone can benefit. But do not be afraid to stand and say “enough is enough!”.

The Badger remind us of who we are and tells us when its time to come out and play with the world. So projects that you have been putting off need to be finished now! let the world see your great work at your own pace. Have faith in yourself as you walk your path.

Call upon the badger during your meditations and ask for the power it has in its spirit. find ways to remind yourself of the badgers powers every day so you can master the lesson to be learned.

In many traditional cultures of the western world the hummingbird has powerful religious and spiritual significance.  In the high Andes of South America, for example, the hummingbird is taken to be a symbol of resurrection. This is because each hummer becomes lifeless and seems to die on cold nights, but it comes back to life again when the miraculous sunrise brings warmth.

They are known as hummingbirds because of the humming sound created by their beating wings which flap at high frequencies audible to humans.

Maybe we are traveling thru a world of constant spiritual deaths and seeing the hummingbird can be a light at the end of the tunnel. If you have been struggling thru some of the trials of life and the hummingbird finds you… Smile and enjoy the birth of your new life. New joy will spring into your life with an optimistic attitude. Looking at the joy in every grain of bread you eat.

Hummingbirds have the highest metabolism of any homeothermic animal. To conserve energy when food is scarce, and nightly when not foraging, they go into torpor, a state similar to hibernation, slowing metabolic rate to 1/15th of its normal rate.

She stops to enjoy the sweet nectar of life.

The Hummingbird is said to be the creature that opens the heart. While opening the heart we learn to enjoy creation and laugh. Noticing all the small things we have taken for granted. This animal asks for our attention to the beauty of flowers and the healing powers they carry. To win hearts in love.

  • Hummingbird is a symbol of all good things.
  • Courage
  • Adaptability
  • Resiliency while keeping a playful and optimistic outlook.
  • Lifting up negativity
  • Swiftness, ability to respond fast
  • Being more in the moment
  • Open you up to love
  • Enjoyment of life

We came across a very excited little hummingbird this week while we were in the woods. He kept zipping in and out of our teepee. Making sure to remind us to look him up when we got back to the world. Showing more love to the world and know that times will always be better with a better attitude. This little guy had a strong spirit and the courage of a lion as he dipped at me a few times. Teaching me new things everyday when I stop and watch the world.

If the Eagle comes into your Life, Its time you get back on your spiritual path.

  • Majestic the powerful animal that soars to great heights for great knowledge
  • Reminder to soar high in your goals, you can reach those goals
  • Messengers from the heavens and the spirit world.
  • Connected to the Sun, Inner fire in us. Enlightenment
  • Creativity and the creation of things. Tell you to soar to those creative aspects of yourself.
  • Seek out your true emotions and feelings. Do not be afraid to express them when needed.
  • The eagle’s feet are very strong and that reminds you to stay grounded.
  • Sharp beaks remind us of how much to speak and how sharply we speak
  • Wings represent the balance between the male and female energy
  • Trust the spiritual message to stay strong
  • Defeat your fears and look beyond the horizon and see all things as apart of life’s journey.
  • Psalm 103 mentions renewing one’s youth “as the eagle”.

Animal guides and totems choose who they appear to. It is possible that many chose you as you have a strong spiritual essence. I myself have been visited by the deer, orca, dragon fly, wolf, coyote, lady bug and many more.

The need more knowledge of the signs is forever increasing with all the chances to communicate with the universe. The moment you start observing yourself and the signs, you’re in the moment.

Eagles are an exceptionally common symbol in heraldry, being considered the “King of Birds” in contrast to the lion, the “King of Beasts”

The Moche people of ancient Peru worshiped the animal and often depicted eagles in their art.

The eagle is also the patron animal of the ancient Greek god Zeus. In particular, Zeus was said to have taken the form of an eagle in order to abduct Ganymede.

Wow! During a spiritual retreat, I saw a fabulous picture of an eagle which I sketched. It drew me in and now with this explanation, I understand why. Fly higher is the invitation!
