Alligator - Animal Spirit Guide

When walking in nature, I have an active imagination and often see shapes in trees that looks like an animal or a dancing ballerina or maybe even the head of an alligator.  The Alligator has inhabited earth for millions of years and are known as the keepers of ancient wisdom in many myths and legends.  When one of these creatures enters your life, look for an opportunity to touch very primal energies.  This spirit animal guide contains all the unbridled creative forces of the world and the fury and ferocity of Primal Energies. It is the keeper and protector of all knowledge.  Steven D. Farmer, PH.D. shares the following in his book, Animal Spirit Guides:

Alligator - Animal Spirit GuideIf ALLIGATOR shows up, it means:

Take your time to digest what you’re learning.

This is a time for renewal and new beginnings.

You need to be very protective of your personal territory and assertive about setting boundaries.

Gather all the facts and look at the situation from all sides before passing judgment, making any decisions, or taking action.

It is an important time to honor your ancestors.Alligator - Animal Spirit Guide

Call On ALLIGATOR when:

Someone has confided something very personal to you, and you need to keep it hidden and secret.

You are clearly at the end of one cycle or phase of your life and moving into a new era.

You’ve transgressed your own ethical guidelines, and in doing so have hurt someone else and sincerely want to may amends.

You are feeling drawn to a study of ancient wisdom and knowledge, but are not sure where to begin.

 

If ALLIGATOR is your POWER ANIMAL:

You seem a bit cold to others upon a first meeting, yet given enough time, you can warm up to them.

You keep to yourself most of the time, but  when you do reveal yourself, others feel your strong presence.

You move rather slowly and deliberately until someone invades your personal space.

You’re quite shy and a bit of a loner, and when you’re in social situations you go unnoticed.

You assess any troubling situation, taking action when you have all the necessary information.

When you act, you do so swiftly and without hesitation or equivocation.

Wolf Animal Spirit Guide

To American Indians, the wolf is said to be “teacher medicine”.   Wolf  has much to teach us, if only we will listen.  Wolf spirit teaches us to have balance between our personal needs and those of the family and community.  They are committed and loyal to the pack and find their place within the group.   The following information can be found in my favorite reference book, Animal Spirit Guides, by Steven D. Farmer, Ph.D.

Rat Animal Spirit Guide

I am dedicating this blog to a dear friend after having a conversation about how many of us have negative feelings about rats.  (I promise only photos of pet rats will be featured in today’s blog).  Lets look at the positive symbolic meanings of the Rat Animal Spirit Guide.   Chinese see the rat as a symbol of industry, and in fact is one of the animals on the Chinese Zodiac.  If Rat has scurried across your path you are being asked to assert yourself in new areas that you have not yet explored.
