April 26 2016 Totem Insights for the Day – Bear

card 24 bear 1122
Today Bear steps up this day to remind us to choose words and actions wisely. Stop being so quick to judge others without walking in their steps, or understanding what is real and what is illusion. Often as we walk our paths we get lost in the negativity of others, or perhaps it is because we are not doing what we are meant to do and seeing that others are walking their truths it triggers jealousy and other negatives. So you lash out… and it is easy to do, we have all done it at one time or another. But what we fail to recognize or consider what we say or do… often causes harm or sends out negatives to a world that already has enough. So today as the Bear stands and roars for all to hear… perhaps stop and worry about your life, your actions, your words … and begin work on your own issues and faults to better balance your own hoops.

Bear is all about fertility (creative and manifestation), instinct, protection and solitude. Those that walk with Bear are often somewhat reclusive requiring a great deal of personal space to renew and create. Bear people will often “disconnect” for awhile as they pursue projects becoming deeply involved in what they are working on. Deeply protective and territorial, Bear also is extremely loyal and dependable.

Bear teaches us when healing of any sort is needed to use that time for introspective work in order to grow Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally and find answers to problems within yourself. Travel deep into your soul find the purpose in your own path and journey and walk ahead in positive steps.

Bear shares with us that in this time hibernation is not only good but needed, yet respect our natural hibernation cycle and remember to reawaken in the spring, in doing so awaken the potential within ourselves and the power of our unconscious mind.

Bear teaches us there is a time for playfulness and a time to be assertive, and perhaps a time for both in balance.
