four directions are examined here within the context of the animal
totems. Each direction has its own special characteristic and
meaning. When the animals are seen coming from or going to a particular
direction, the depth of meaning can be enhanced. This is another
way to tune into the subtle language of animals. Intuitions and
general knowledge should help you in discerning this unique relationship.
of Using Your Potential ~ Magic: Manifestation ~ Element: Earth
Associated with the nobility of manifesting things from the true
essence within you. Earth is symbolic of wisdom, patience, prosperity.
Grounding aspects of mind/body/spirit. What you gain in knowledge
and teachings now, will be used later. What seemed impossible
will be enlightened with a new idea and thought. Listen to your
intuitions and trust that will be transformed in accordance with
your true inner pathway.
of Responsible Relationships ~ Magic: Higher Vision and Prophecy
~ Element: Air
vision opens up, creativity, inspiration, higher awareness, higher
intuitions, self-mastery through the use of will. Air links the
Earth and Heavens which allows the ability to walk between the
spiritual and physical worlds using dreams and visions. Be open
to any revelations you have for they will give guidance. It is
time for spiritual renewal, sometimes easy, sometimes painful,
but always welcome for we need to grow within and without.
Inner Spiritual Renewal
of Life, Death and Rebirth ~ Magic: Creation ~ Element: Fire
to change and manifest a new thought, idea or action. Fire is
the element of heart, passions and love that help us regenerate
our lives. Change must be met with strength and endurance - knowing
you will move through this stage and awaken new, fresh and purified.
All of life is a cycle, there are only transition periods that
we must maneuver through. During such changes, we learn, grow
and expand our self awareness.
Awakening the Inner Child
of Adaptation ~ Magic: Shapeshifting ~ Element: Water
and behavioral adaptations to the environment in order to survive.
Water will always take the path of less resistance. Utilizing
your energy to the fullest in whatever life requires is a hallmark
of a true shapeshifter. Being able to adapt according to need
in all areas of your life. This requires a shifting in consciousness
to flow like water over a given circumstance. The animals have
no qualms with changing, it does this without hesitation.
