Four Legged – Endurance
Life is not a battle, even if it sometimes seems to be just that. It does however require endurance. Once started, a novel that you have always wanted to write will require endurance to finish. A course of higher learning that you were never able to complete in your younger years can be completed now but requires effort, and endurance to do so.
We all have animal guides, they, like our other guides have been with us since birth and now offer their energy, strength, and endurance to complete what it is you are striving to achieve.
The energy of the animal guides is here to supplement our own as well as give us new energy and strength.
Animal guides and spirits, the energy they give us, the strength which becomes endurance are a much part of them as we think of use. Recognise them and welcome them into our lives. It can be as simple as taking a walk-in nature to give our four-legged friend[s] exercise, but in turn we get exercise, we get to see, smell and feel nature which adds to our own energy.
Insects – Support
We all get discouraged at times. We feel let down, unsupported and adrift without help or support. Maybe the ending of a relationship, or a job. Perhaps a death. We feel as if relatives and co-workers are unfeeling and ignoring us in our moment of need.
Perhaps we have been in the same situation before and have developed a hard skin, one we feel shrugs of the problems and emotional hurt. Don’t let that tough outer skin become the face you show to the world.
Insects are tenacious, patient and detached from the problems around them. No matter what happens, the continue on to bring food to the nest, find somewhere to mate and lay eggs, and then they do it all over again.
Now is your time to be life the insect, tenacious, patient and detached, this will help you move forward as well as without building that self-destructive hard outer shell.
