Koala’s powers include ability to climb over obstacles, recognising the value of slow movement, ability to remain above the fray, the power of yoga, helpful advice giver, deep relaxation and concentration.
The koalas cute and cuddly looks makes them is one of the most loved marsupial mammals to people of all ages.
They grow 50-84cm tall and have just about no tail. They eat a certain kind of eucalyptus leaf, and hardly drink.
It is thought that koala means ‘no drink’ in some aboriginal languages. As their diet is sluggish this paves the way for a sluggish digestive system. Koala people who eat a wide variety of foods may experience digestive problems, therefore basic foods are recommended with more herbs and herbal remedies.
The koala is very independent and very apathetic toward family members. Born about the size of a bee, the baby koala is brought up by the mum attentively, but once strong enough the kids are on tehri own. The bond between mother and child is severed. Koalas are very territorial, demanding their personal space and tolerate each other accordingly. They sleep up to 18 hours a day, with the most activity happening at night. Koala people work the best in the late evening and early morning hours. They also frequently require time away from everyone and everything and little noise is tolerated. Close relationships can be a bit of a challenge due to the difficulty in expressing emotions. However, the koala shows us how to be comfortable with our own company.
Though they have bad eyesight, the koalas cup-like ears are able to hear acutely, and they have an acute sense of smell. Those with this power animal possess strong psychic and clairaudient powers. Soothing sounds and aromatherapy are beneficial to these people.
Perched high up in a tree, the koalas grip is secure and as they move across the branches, their footing is solid. Koala reminds us to stand solid within ourselves and not to be affected by occurrences.
Koalas are hardly ever distracted and are always focused- they are masters in the art of deep relaxation and concentration. They teach of stress free movement and can show us how to manifest sacred space in our lives.
