Opossums are called the little heyoehkah, the sacred clown who teaches us to look at things upside down, inside out, and from multiple perspectives.  It teaches us how to trick ourselves into the light.  Because it is nocturnal, it is a shadow exposer.  If your intent is to see the light within your shadow, call of the medicine of the Opossum.

Animal Medicine Monday – Raccoon

 

raccoon_1280Raccoons are considered the masked heyoehkah, or sacred clown.  As they gather, they teach us to collect only that which is necessary.  They also teach us to horde, save and steal.  Raccoon is the teacher of jealously and possessiveness.  Because it is nocturnal, it is a shadow exposer.
