Spiritual and Totem Insights for the Day – the Koi

Koi filled my head this morning as it showed itself from the deck! Offering the one thought, if you can place it in your mind as thought and vision it can be accomplished! We Must simply believe in our selves! So often we think of things or want to attain a certain goal and it eludes us, why is that? Well mostly because we aren’t trying hard enough.

Koi suggests that life is not easy it is a path of learning and experiences, and yes that is what we are here for like it or not… is to experience and grow from it. It is once again presented as choice, we make the choice to move forward and overcome things, we make the choice to give up and whine about what we can not have… of course the path can be tough, yet again we have the ability to choose how we face and overcome! Remember as well that is why they are called “Obstacles” which is defined as a thing that blocks one’s way or prevents or hinders progress.

So Listen to the Wisdom shared today by the Koi, it is ancient and will help you to stop and be in the moment of the Day!

Koi shows up asking us to honor the past, the wisdom’s and teachings shared by the Ancestors. It is easy at times to forget and run ahead on the path, leaving the things that are important to us as we walk the human… yet we should be slowing down in order to be part of the beauty that is in life all around us. Treating each moment with respect and thankfulness. Life is a gift, but we need to remember that the balance of it lies within each of us, it is not someone else’s responsibility… it is our responsibility to walk in the highest good for all.

Koi speaks to us of being calm, peaceful and working together with each other in a state of Zen which places us in a state of enlightenment by direct intuition through meditation and/or prayer. When we are in this state, positives flow in and around us creating a healthier way of life.

The Koi fish brings to us prosperity and a path for new opportunities to show themselves to us. It is up to each of us to be open and aware in order to take advantage of them. Koi can assist us during meditation and altered states of mind in order to help us achieve healing and our full potentials by opening to the wisdom’s of “the Old Ones.” The colors can also be associated with various aspects and applied to our lives if we can again be open to what they share.

The black Koi brings transition into our lives.

The gold Koi brings prosperity which can represent the physical, the spiritual or represent monetary wealth that is being brought to our paths.

The platinum Koi brings to our lives success and puts new and beneficial opportunities at our doors.

White Koi that have red coloring only on their heads push us to be aware of positive movement within our lives and enables us to take advantage of them.

A white and red marked Koi is said be a blessing for well balanced relationships.

The Koi teach us to remember to honor all that is Sacred, to meditate and pray… to be thankful for all our many blessings large and small. To understand that our actions today will imprint for lifetimes just as it has for our Ancestor’s. So walk your paths wisely and ask for assistance from our Ancestor’s often.
