Spiritual and Totem Insights of the Day – the Heron

This morning the Heron shows itself from the deck with some very insightful observations. Life in the present day is full of noise… we are constantly being pulled in by negativity. Face it, it is sort of everywhere we turn at the moment. The thing is we need to be careful how we step through it all in order to not allow it to seep into our Sacred Hoops. As humans we need to rely on our guts, our internal instincts that keep us safe, that push us to do what is right, what is positive. We need to take a breath to step away from what I call the “Mob Mentality” in order to better our world… our own space. For if we do not, the negativity of the world will consume us.

Heron brings with it the strong connection to the Great Mother Earth. It teaches us to channel that inner strength and using it to ground and remain strong in the course. Be strong and balance so that you can accomplish many things at the same time.

Heron shares with us the ability to become independent and self reliant, yet knowing when to change and adapt in life when needed. Follow your own path, not necessarily the direction that others tell you to walk. You have this, and are capable.

They teach us to be comfortable in our own being, and happy. To love self and understand we are all worthy of good and positive things. Typically they spend much time on their own, but know that it is at times better to be more social and step out of their comfort zones to add experiences and keep the balance of all things in their Sacred Hoop.

Use your steps wisely as the Heron does, and take advantage of the exact moment when it is time to move in a positive motion on your path.



I am bear Medicinewalker and I am dedicated to Educating and sharing the lessons, teachings and culture I have been taught by my Elders and journey with the World. It is not enough merely to learn the ways of our Elders. We must honor those traditions by sharing and educating the World. Inspiring others …Inspiring our Youth. Through the Music… the Arts…the stories…”
