Winter is arriving sooner than we may think according to the cards this week that have shown up for us as today yet another reminder falls into place the Polar Bear comes into play. Now for many people automatically think of the Polar bear as a winter bear, playing in the snow and ice… dealing with the harsh cold weather… But as it teaches us today…there is much to prepare for and no one better to remind us than the Polar Bear!
We must gather strength and all that is needed for the long winter months ahead. We must be prepared for anything that happens along the way especially the unexpected. We must be adaptable in order to survive in a healthy manner. We must remember to feed our bodies, minds and souls to continue to achieve balance. We must remember our foundations and core of who we are so we are steady and true on our paths….
Polar Bears do not typically hibernate in the same fashion as it’s other related cousins…. instead they walk life in a continuous adaptable manner, foraging through life as needed in order to survive.
Polar Bear comes and steps into the light today, speaking to us of those that have walked and come before us and all that has been lost. We must remember the old ways, teach the old ways, tell the old stories… because one day sooner than we would all like to hear, we all will be part of the past. For it is written so we begin and so we will end, it is the cycle of life. But at the same time what is still here, our teachings, our memories, life that grows and continues around us, also have to be cared for and remembered in the present… for there are valuable lessons and teachings for us all to cherish and walk forward with.
The way of the Polar Bear is fast declining as are so many of the world culture traditions, stories and ways of healing and being. So we must remember to honor what is remembered and carry it forward, even if through sharing memories. So much to learn… so much to teach….
The Polar Bear shares that it is time to dig deep within your self and balance your Sacred Hoop. Discard what is no longer needed so that you may move ahead on your path in a positive way. Polar Bears are all about the Winter which relates to nurturing self, taking time to feed your soul and examine what is needed for us to take steps forward to survive and flourish in a healthy manner.
Polar Bear steps in to show us all how strong we can be as we face life’s challenges that are thrown at us from time to time. It is time to stand up and show that strength in the dark corners of our life and take ownership of the light that needs to shine from within. Helping to guide us between our human walk and our connections to spirit.
Polar Bear tells us to clean out our dens of unwanted and unneeded energies that are no longer healthy for us. creating for us in that process a renewal of Spirit and thought and putting us back to balancing our Sacred Hoops. We need to remember we are responsible for self and are the only ones that can set ourselves to that place of balance and positives. In a sense we are the masters of our own Universe… so own that …empower yourself …. and love yourself… if we can understand and attain that we will allow other positives into our life with that alignment.
Blessings to you All
