Animals are great messengers for us if we pay attention. When we come across their energy, we are receiving a message from spirit. I don’t mean when you see birds or animals from afar, Im talking about a real interaction thats in your face. This is a sign and you should pay attention.
There are lots of symbology’s and messages coming from the universe, if we keep our receptors on and pay attention we can stay in alignment with our true path. This is what its all about. Listening to the universe and paying attention to what its telling you.
The animal totem messages are so profound to me and although I work with me power animal all the time in journeys I had no idea that totem animals could come with very meaningful messages. I only recently learned about this while traveling with my mom in Bali. In Bali we were taking a walk on the beach and we were walking under this huge beautiful cave. All of a sudden a sleepy bat crash landed right at our feet. The bat barely touched us but he was standing between my mom and I. We watched the tired bat crawl slowly to the cave so he could go to sleep. At first we thought he might be sick but after he made it to hi snook we realized he was just sleepy and he hung upside down and went to bed. Here are some photos of him.
My mom said we should look up bat energy because clearly the spirit of that bat was interacting with our spirit.
We looked up Bat energy and this is what it said: The Bat arriving in your life signifies an omen of change. He asks that you pay attention to signs around you. The transition may seem frightening at first, but you must let go of your old habits and patterns that no longer serve your higher calling. They will only hinder your growth.
At that time it was December 2018. My mom had just lost her house in the California Camp fire and I was going through a personal loss and letting go. It was a full moon that day. And this message made all the sense to us. We could not relate to it more as we were writing down our full moon manifestos of releasing and letting go things that are no longer serving us. The bat just reminded us we are on the right path and this is part of the process.
A couple weeks later, still in Bali we were swimming in the ocean. The ocean was clear, warm and turquoise blue. There were no fish, no rocks, no seaweed, just sand and waves at this particular beach. My mom and I had met in the water after lounging in the sun and as we were talking about the business were going to start as we had been for days, a sting ray swam directly between our bodies barely touching us again, just like the bat. We looked at each other and said wow thats an omen! Sting ray energy! So we immediately went back to our phones to look up the meaning. It was the new moon that day and we were writing all our wishes for the things we wanted to manifest, one was a business we are starting together.
We looked up the sting ray and here is what it said: In this case, stingray symbolism is letting you know that everything is now in place. You have the knowledge, you have the means, you have the tools, and you have the skills. Now get busy and get on with it. In other words, your stingray meaning is telling you that everything you have worked towards is open to you. Therefore, you must stop hesitating. Furthermore, have faith in your abilities and follow your inner guidance.
Obviously this message couldn’t have been more spot on and it was just the assurance we needed to continue with our business idea together.
Today, January 15, 2019 I was at my home in LA where I am surrounded by nature and perched up in a treehouse like a little bird. I was doing my morning ceremony, meditating and breathing and I looked out my bedroom window and saw a bob cat walking up the mountain which my neighbors house sits on. I did a double take to make sure what I was seeing because it was so cool!
After my meditation I went in the kitchen to make a green juice and the bob cat appeared in my yard. Just a few feet away from me he looked directly at me and than went up the stairs in my yard, jumped on the cabinet outside, over the fence and to the mountains. Since I saw him twice and he made eye contact with me I knew it was a message. So I looked up bob cat energy and sure enough the message could not be more spot on.
Here is what the bob cat message says: In this way, the bobcat sends us a clear message that in order for us to get what we want, we must be willing to plan, adapt, and above all, have the patience to see our ideals manifest.
This is all I needed to hear. I am currently in LA working on a bunch of projects, none of which are finished or giving any rewards yet. Im mapping, planning, writing, organizing every single day. And Im getting impatient. So this message was very clear for me and made me feel so much better that patience is a big part of having the success.
So pay attention to the signs from the animals as we’ll as the other signs from the universe.
The Universe is always speaking to us through little messages, coincidences and synchronicities that remind us to stop, look around and be present.
