Black Bird

The day, @kreafavo launched again one of her drawing challenges from her #glasvollideen (bowl of ideas) the person, I took care of for two months, peacefully died that very same morning. In the last two days and nights before he died, he opened a new door for me through which I went astonished and did what had to be done there.  I had no time, head or heart to draw that day and the days after. The challenge could not have been more appropriate. When black bird appears something new enter your life. The challenge came up on Twitter and almost simultaneously the phone rang. See the meaning of black bird.

The power animal Black Bird shows us all the possibilities that lie ahead of us and gives us the courage to tackle new projects, new ideas or projects. Sometimes under this influence it is necessary to renounce certain habits or let go of people.

Today the Black Bird had to be done to process it all – to free my inner horse from it all – my body has a hard time. Maybe, doing the drawing and the writing will help to let everything flow…. After the funeral the future is calling again with grief as background for some time.

The “right” action may require more thought and effort, while the easy one that appears so right may be revealed to be a shortcut on a path to nowhere. Terry Lamb

When reading all the foretelling from different divination’s it became crystal clear: no short cuts and no galloping horse. For now the horse is standing in the stable and will have some quiet movement outside until the summer.

rat-race1Suddenly the movie “Rat Race” came to mind.  There are two sides to rat totem energy:

Rat: Success, Shrewdness

Rat totem give a pronounced drive for success. Ask yourself if you are pushing too hard or to the contrary, if you are not pushing hard enough. Rat also gives their totem people a great ability to adapt to almost any environment. Rat shows you how to gain foresight in any coming situation to avoid problems. Rat totem people are cunning and shrewd, and can defend themselves aggressively when necessary.

When stripping away all the overdone slapstick, the film  perfectly suites the situation at hand. We know there is a price waiting for us, we may even already know what the price is but we do not know how to reach it yet.

In the movie all the contestants start running without concept –  like the endless, pointless and futile efforts of a lab rat trying to escape while running around a maze.

Except one man who only heard ‘race’ and where the price is. He suffers from narcolepsy and felt asleep now and then.

One couple comes across a farm where the farm-lady is selling squirrels. They ask the lady the direction to the highway and she keeps asking if they want to by a squirrel. The couple keeps saying no and finally the farm-lady give them directions to a short cut…… They end up in nowhere-land and fell off a hill while passing several boards saying:

YOU +++ BETTER +++ HAD +++ BOUGHT +++ A +++ SQUIRREL +++

That suites the situation at hand for all of us. What does squirrel teach us?

squirrelGathering, Activity, Preparedness

The gathering power of Squirrel is a great gift. It teaches us balance within the circle of gathering and giving out. They remind us that in our quest for our goals, it is vital to make time for play and socializing. Squirrel teaches us to conserve our energy for times of need. If  Squirrel has recently entered your life, lighten your load of things that are unnecessary – things that you have gathered in the past and may be cluttering your life – thoughts, worries, and stresses. Squirrel is also the totem of action. Ask yourself are you too active, not active enough, afraid of enough, hung up on accumulating and collecting. Squirrel people tend to be a little erratic – trying to do many things at once. Take the time to stop and listen to your inner self – and don’t forget to play!

native totem wisdom

Gather information, have a look at which nut to crack and which one is hollow. Remember what and where you have the good stuff, let alone the bad stuff. A squirrel, as all animals on earth, knows what it has to do. Contact your inner animal – meaning stay grounded and listen to the spiritual and the earthly wisdom as well to find the path to your best price – the price to win you are born for this time around.

Like the narcoleptic guy in the movie – he won as a matter of fact the rat race but….

The price had gone due to a criminal action of the attorney, who had helped organizing the whole thing, and his girl friend. That is the other cliff you have to be aware of: have a good look if people you want to partner up with and arising opportunity’s are honest and worth trying.

When all questions are answered saddle your horse and go out for the ride – it will be a summer sun ride.

Horse Animal Totem: Travel, Power, Freedom

Horses are symbols of freedom. This totem brings new journeys. It will teach you to ride in new directions and discover your own freedom and power. Horse people are usually friendly and adventurous. If you have a Horse totem, you must ask yourself: “Am I feeling constricted? Do you need to move on or allow others to move on?” Horse will teach you how to ride into new directions to awaken and discover your own freedom and power.

The price in the film finally is given by the contestants to a good cause and so should your rat race end too: leave the old paradigm behind, our patriarchal rat race, being possessed by our strive for more, better, higher money,career, possessions. We are supposed to be one again in unconditional love and shared wealth.
