Totem Animal: Squirrel


Squirrels are everywhere!

They are always scurrying around… looking…gathering…preparing. Have you seen them? Red, grey, black or maybe even flying? If they have scurried across your path they have a very important message to share.

It’s time to start preparing for the future. Start stockpiling whatever you may need on a rainy day to get you through. A big change could be coming into your life soon and you need to be ready. Harbor energies that will help you to keep moving forward and not be caught off guard. Collect tools, gadgets, money, food, whatever you need in your trusty boy scout back up kit, if ever a kit is needed. It is better to have it and not need it then to need it and….you know the rest. It is also a time to gather your thoughts. Think things through and prepare your mind for the future as well as your body.

On the other hand, have you become a hoarder? Maybe it is time to do some spring cleaning. Do you have too much of something? Do you have things you no longer use and are only cluttering your space? Clear out unused items and donate them, sell them, get them out of your hair. Are you hoarding worries and stress? Stop holding onto bad feelings that serve you no purpose and do nothing but hurt your future. It is time to move on and let go of the baggage that is driving you nuts!

I’ve been wanting to create Squirrel’s totem piece for quite a while and have finally got around to finishing it. I know I keep repeating it but with each one create I want to keep making more and more and more. I am so excited to keep going. Next Monday I will be sharing my Manatee piece and their symbolism. After that…who knows…it could be anything! Whatever presents itself to me I guess! I can’t wait!

Thanks for stopping by this week. I hope squirrel has helped you get a little more prepared for the future! What do you do to prepare? Share any tips you have in the comments below!

Until next time,

“I will prepare and someday my chance will come.”
