as a sign in your life.
Signs are everywhere. Signs appear in the animals that cross your paths. Understanding what animals mean as a spiritual symbol will aid in helping you understand a situation in your life. It is how you interpret their appearance and their meaning and see how it is a meaning for you that will help you choose the best choice for happiness and joy in your life and the lives of those around you.
Last month, I saw these loon chicks off my dock. I love loons ~ they symbolize tranquility and serenity and re-awaken dreams and desires and to pay close attention to them. This month, the chicklets had made it passed a precarious time of predators and are still with Mom and Dad. I saw them yesterday and sat in awe of how they were interacting as a family. It helped me understand the best choice to make regarding an interaction with my extended family of friends and of my hopes and dreams.
People often ask me, “Laura, how do you know so much about what animals mean?” Beyond studying them for years and beyond working with clients on how best to interpret their meaning in their lives (because interpretation is a VERY personal matter) I’m going to give you my secret weapon. Are you ready? It’s Animal-Speak: The Spiritual & Magical Powers of creatures Great & Small written by Ted Andrews. It’s a dictionary of symbolism. Animal Speak shows you the power and spiritual significance of more than 100 different animals, birds, insects, and reptiles. And was my starting point for my own discovery process and supporting my clients in listening to their inner wisdom through the appearance of these signs and what animals mean.
They mean different things to different people. Think Skunk. Most people think of them as animals that wreak a horrendous smell. But, I have one client who loves them because of Pepe Le Pew! So, when you have an animal come across your vision, learn about it and then take the generic meaning and filter it through your own understandings for your own action steps based on your inner wisdom for actions based on this. What do animals mean to you? Have you ever had one that has been a sign that has created a significant shift for you?
