We are now in the month of the earth astrology totem of otter, with Aquarius being the complimentary sun sign. Otter helps us to cleanse and purify our sacred waters, that is, all emotional states, blood, and lymphatic systems of humans. They teach us how to play in our child shield (our inner little girl for women and inner little boy for men) and give with our heart. The otter also protects men as they learn to deal with the energy of women’s moon cycles.
If you want to experience the joy of moving through frozen waters, even when frozen, check out the first few minutes of this PBS America show on the Otters of Yellowstone, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_c_JOtZu4Q
What a rare sight to tune into the birth of Spirit! The Decorah Eagle Cam is a live stream of a mama eagle over her eggs. Watch past egg laying videos from the last weeks or see what’s happening now. We just heard the eagle cries pierce though the trees … let us know what you see and hear!
You may have heard of “Sweet Medicine” from the name of our path: The Sweet Medicine Sundance Path. Sweet Medicine also refers to the animal world. Each animal, whether they are our birth totem animal (see Sun Bear’s Earth Astrology teachings), the wheels of animals that are our spirit guides and allies, or the animals we invite into our daily lives, has a medicine that is its spiritual essence.
The Spirit of these animals is the energy that connects us to our higher selves, and each animal does this in its own unique and natural way. Animals simply are who they are in alignment with their natural habitats. We, as humans, sit in the center of the animal Wheel of Life and learn from them how to walk in greater balance and harmony.
We love this video as an excellent example of how Sweet Medicine touches our own spirit, helps us to connect to our higher self, and teaches us to walk in greater balance and harmony in the world.
