Insight is simply
that which one understands
allows without altering
because it brings awareness
It is a sense
that defies description
yet holds true wisdom
carried beyond time
that one may find his way home. - Talking to Nightlights
Power animals -- each has a special significance relative to the individual. Yes, there are now an abundance of books and resources from various teachers and students on the meanings and or interpretations. Guidelines, they are.
Work is required to determine personal relationship and meaning to the individual. Ultimately, you know what your symbols mean, even when you do not know it at the time.
|Oracles, totems and power dreams|
In the multi-dimensional realm of spirit - many players are contributing to the dream.
All is not as it seems. Some players are intentionally wearing a disguise.
When the animal shows up - homework requires introspection. Meaning is delivered in layers.
More than a simple analogy or caricature ... a time of purpose is at hand.
One is being given an opportunity to see himself and the events in process from another viewpoint, in another realm and another dimension.
Is there a point? Always. The point is growth. The purpose is love.
Example - In the night dream, the workers had forgotten to shut the door on the upstairs garden room. I knew the place so well and it seemed, in this time-frame, it was a comfortable home for me.
Door closed and latched, the fox appeared on the other side and was very upset because he had made a home in this seemingly vacant haven. It was hard for me to accept that I had to shut him out and I felt guilt in the action ... barring him ... from entering.
Beautiful fur, gorgeous markings, haunting eyes. I had to continue my housekeeping and went downstairs. The fox now stood halfway across the yard and I tried calling to him. Then the noise started and a bunch of rowdy and colorfully dressed partiers were ambling down the sidewalk.
I wanted to protect the fox and had a dish of milk to set out but I hesitated - not wanting the students to learn of his presence. They might not honor him or respect his need to develop trust in his own time.
Wary of the oncoming revelers and unsure of his position with me, the fox ran into the woods.
I know where he is. And even though it is his true home, I am worried about his safety.
In the vision, prior to the night dream, I see two cartoon animals. One is an exaggerated bulbous moose caricature. The other is a sleek and genteel mouse. I am given a quick full face view and then I see them in profile looking at each other. The message is these two are represented in current events. A detente of sorts. The outcome is still up in the air.
There is a reason the two scenarios were joined. One was a signal, a prompt that the other would be forthcoming and to be alert, as it would contain a unique message. The second scenario is a metaphor. Meanings will shift given the events of the day and my actions and reactions to this gift of awareness.
As for the meanings, they are works in progress.
