Lion Power Animal Symbol Of Brotherhood Feminine Energy Part II

Posted By Ina Woolcott

The key to the balance between self and others can be discovered in some of the well known symbols associated with the lion. First off they are the astrological animal related to the sign of Leo, which rules the heart. Leo is ruled by the Sun – another symbol of Lion. At the same time the sun blesses us with life giving warmth and light, the warmth of an open heart gives comfort to all who are touched by it. Coeur is the French word for heart, the root word for courage. Courage comes from the heart and from a deep sense of personal authority.

When we have the courage to be true to ourselves, we will be empowered to act and live in ways true to our own soul – the true meaning of elf esteem, without any illusion. Not wearing a mask and having respect for oneself as well as others, such as not comparing oneself to others and lowering their worth in order to increase one’s own value. Those who come from the heart and are able to relate well to others are capable of leadership, achievement as well as the type of success that inspires other to accomplish things.

Lion teaches us the magic of group energy and interaction, as well as the secrets of silence and patience. We must study ourselves deeply to know and understand ourselves – our strengths and weaknesses, and to wait for the right moment to act and take full advantage of a given situation. Learn the correct way to use power from lion. Always be centred and peaceful, but if need be, don’t be afraid to fight for the things you are interested in.

Lion presents lessons to be learned in dealing with groups and your role within those groups – work with others cooperatively. You have the ability to be a great leader but get a grip on that jealousy. Lion in your life means avoiding confrontations and being stealthy. Take the easy way to meet your goals – do not confront them head on. Trust your feminine energies – creativity, intuition and imagination. But don’t be afraid to roar if threatened.

Raven Power Animal Master Magician Keeper Of Secrets

Posted By Ina Woolcott

Ravens wisdom includes introspection, courage, self-knowledge, magic, healing, creation, rebirth, keeper of secrets, master magician, shape shifter, mysticism.

The largest songbirds in North America, Ravens are highly intelligent and clever mimics. They mimic and use the calls of other species in their own ’vocabulary’ and can show us how to understand ‘animal language’. Ravens have been known to learn some human words also. Early Europeans feared the Raven and regarded them as bad omens, because they would feed on the corpses of the dead hanging on the gallons. Truth of the matter is, the Raven – like all wildlife and nature – should be respected, not feared.

Ravens bear magic and mysticism, and have a long history of myth enshrouding them. Shamans know the power of an unexpected piercing sound in shifting consciousness. Ravens have this power, giving out varied sounds, and can assist us in shifting our consciousness into various dimensional realms. Hence this is a reason why the raven is referred to as a shape shifter with magical powers. ‘Raven people’ can expect continual changes and spiritual awakenings throughout their lifetime.

Some native tribes refer to them as the ‘keeper of secrets’. They are linked to the void, where universal secrets are kept. Obviously, their black colour is the colour linked to darkness, the place where unconscious fear resides. Ravens are master magicians and represent transformational energy, revealing to us how to rid ourselves of our inner fears. Raven will show you how to go within in yourself, into the dark areas and then illuminate them, making you ‘sparkle’ and bringing out your true self. Inner conflicts should then be resolved, however long buried they are – this is the deepest healing.

If raven has flown into your life, then magic and healing abound. Raven awakens the energy of magic, linking it to our will and intention. With Raven, you have the ability to make great changes in your life – now is the time when you can take the thought and make it reality. Raven knows the mystery of life, they are strongly linked with death and rebirth. Remember not to be fearful of Raven, rather give thanks for the teachings he brings. Raven chooses its student according to their knowledge. They usually stay as long as needed to help transmute karma, returning you to the light. They will lead you into the discovery of your multidimensional self and reunite you with the secrets of the multidimensional universe.

Bear Power Animal Symbol Of Strength Introspection Knowledge Dreamtime And Transformation

Some anthropologists say that the Bear was one of the first animals to be revered by humans. Celtic tradition holds that the Primal Mother is the Bear goddess Artio, a fierce protector. Bear is also associated with the Goddess Artemis. Bear has been a figure in the forefront of many Native cultures. Beliefs state that the power of the Great Spirit lives through the bear, therefore making them highly sought after guides due to their fearless medicine. This belief led to a constellation to be named after it, Ursus Major, The Great Bear. Some traditions see Bear as the spirit keeper of the West, where harvests are abundant and maturity resides. Those who walk or live in areas where bears reside know -or may quickly learn- that the most dangerous animal in the woods is a bear mother protecting her cubs.
