Have you had an encounter with an animal lately? Perhaps out on a walk, or even just looking out of the window? An encounter which has stuck in your mind, or that you have felt important enough to share with others? Perhaps you have had a dream about a particular animal?
Working with the Wild Earth Animal Essences, I am often asked the meaning of an encounter, as people find it very useful to learn about the spiritual significance and symbolism that particular animals have for them. We then discuss how this meaning may enlighten or provide guidance for current life challenges.
“I have lived here for 20 years and never once seen a fox..but there it was just walking around the house”
I believe that these wild animal encounters can be real guidance in our personal growth, now more than ever. Living in this wonderful rural place, I am in touch with wildlife every day, but animals never cease to do extraordinary things to make themselves clear to me, when they have something to teach me.
I had a very interesting animal encounter on holiday in France last summer… One evening, I did a ‘medicine card’ and picked frog…which in Native American symbolism is cleansing, and the frog essence is about transformation. Later that evening I became really sick with what felt like food poisoning, vomiting every hour or so…it was a loud thundery,rainy night with bright lightening, but I had opened the windows of the gite to get some air to help with the nausea. A tree frog promptly climbed in through the open window and joined me for the whole night ..hopping around me on the tiled floor and on the furnishings, until the sickness subsided at dawn! After a whole night of cleansing and purging, I felt completely transformed, both mentally and physically. For the rest of the summer, Frog was an important ally on my path of personal and spiritual growth.
