The most bazaar thing happened yesterday! Martin came in from our screened in patio (ok, a few screens r missing from the top from that bad hurricane season a few yrs. ago and we could never get a screen company to actually show up and fix it so we gave up.) to get something. He goes back out and there is a baby heron in on the patio!!! I mean this is soooooo weird! It’s not like all our screens are out on the top.
We knew it was a sign from Andrew. So we did what every other metaphysicalÂ person does after you safelyÂ capture andÂ release a sign from your Avatar son,Â you either look it up in Ted Andrew’s Animal Speak book or you google it! Here’s what we found on google, Ted Andrew’s book isn’t unpacked yet…..
A Heron and Egret totem teaches balance;
the ability to progress and evolve–
to walk into deeper waters without fear.
It is important for someone with a Heron and Egret
totem to learn to stand on their own two feet,
to become independent and self-reliant.
Heron and Egret has a strong connection to the element of Earth and you must e aware and cultivate this connection. The Mother Earth is a source of strength and will help you stand strong and firm.
Heron medicine allows you to perform many tasks at the same time, keeping all in balance. If one way doesn’t work, then another way will. Heron and Egret people seem to instinctively know this.
Heron people do not need a lot of people in their life and they often follow non-traditional roles. They feel no need to “keep up with the Jones.” They stand in their uniqueness and know to take advantage of things and events that most people wouldn’t bother with. You know what is best is best for you and you should follow that path. Be aggressive when opportunities present themselves—don’t let them get away from you.
Meditation on color will provide insight to Heron and Egret people.
While the heron and egret aren’t our totem animals, it was a definite sign to pay attention to!Â I have to say, yesterday was one of, if not thee best day, we’ve had since Andrew ascended! It was prosperous in ALL ways. We got to see a light at the end of this long road we’ve been on. And it ended on such a fun, hilarious note that you will be able to read about tomorrow.
IT’S ALL GOOD!
Even though the Heron isn’t your primary totem, you are in ‘need’ of the medicine right now. So there is still lots of validation there!
I personally need to get over the spider energy that has taken over in the last couple of weeks *shudderZ*
I think finding that Heron is awesome!
That’s what is so cool about all this, that it doesn’t have to be your totem to get the message. We knew it was a huge sign!
[quote]Heron people do not need a lot of people in their life and they often follow non-traditional roles.[/quote] That reminds me of Andrew…everything you have told us about him. That he didn’t have too many friends. He didn’t need so many people. But who he had were the best!
Yup! He didn’t like crowds, he didn’t need a lot of friends, just a few really good ones. People in general irritated him. Of course we also tend to stand in our own uniqueness too!
It was a definite message from Andrew, just that line alone let’s us know it was him and the rest sounds like us & what we are going through now.
Major Dittos on not needing too many friends or being around lots of people! We stand in our weirdness…erm…uniqueness too ;)
I think that message made sense to a lot of folks here Connie!
Well, of course I had to pull out Steven Farmer’s book:
If Heron shows up, it means:
You’ve approached the opportunity before you at a leisurely pace, but now it’s time to grab it and go for it with gusto.
By meeting this challenging situation head on, you’ll discover that you have some powerful gifts and skills that you were unaware of.
If one way isn’t working, try another; don’t get stuck in any single approach.
Spend a day or two with no plans or agenda, guided only by your intuition – whether a day of activity, quiet reflection, or a combination.
Take full responsibility for your thoughts, feelings, and actions, rather than blaming others or life circumstances.
I knew we shoulda looked it up in Steven’s book too! That makes soooooo much sense Leah! Martin didn’t think it would be in there because he thinks it’s not a so called power animal! HA! he was wrong!
Yeah, that first line gave me chills!!! Ha – I’ve decided it’s a message for me, too! LOL!!!!!!
