If you talk to the animals they will talk to you and you will know each othe ou don’t know you will fear. What one fears one destroys.
-Chief Dan George
Power Animals are symbols of specific kind of energy to be manifested and aligned with in our life. The animal becomes a symbol of a specific force of the invisible, spiritual realm manifesting within this world in our own life.
For the collection "Loving Kindness" I matched a Power Animals to every blend to help even more on your journey of self-healing, self-discovery and self-empowerment.
Ted Andrews in his book about nature symbolism masterfully explains the concept behind the nature totems and how to work with the nature archetypes for self-growth in everyday life:
"Every species in nature symbolize specific energies and features that are associated with it. Every species and every aspect of the environment has the power to remind us of what we can, if we wish, manifest within our own life.
We can use animal imagery and other nature totem images as a way to learn about ourselves and the invisible world. There are archetypal powers that lie behind and oversee all the manifestations in Nature. These archetypes have their own qualities and characteristics which are reflected through the behavior and activities of animals and other expressions of Nature. When we pay attention and acknowledge a power animal, we are honoring the essence that lies behind it by opening up and attuning to that essence. We can than use it to understand our own life circumstances more clearly.
Power Animals are symbols of specific kind of energy we are manifesting and aligning with in our life. The animal becomes a symbol of a specific force of the invisible, spiritual realm manifesting within our own life".*
The Power Animals are represented on the label.
The Hummingbird in "Happiness" symbolize the enjoyment of life and lightness of being and to be encouraged to develop your own adaptability and resiliency while keeping a playful and optimistic outlook.
The Tiger in "Confidence"is a perfect embodiment of elegant power and grounded self-confidence. Tiger energy teaches self-actualization – you begin to feel comfortable in your own skin and even revel in it. A powerful reminder of overcoming obstacles and fears by reclaiming your place of power, call on Tiger as your Power Animal when you need renewed confidence.
The Owl in "Shadow"gives the strength needed to open your eyes and look into the shadows. It is a symbol of being able to navigate any darkness in our life and if there are skeletons in the closet you can trust that Owl will find them and start the house cleaning.
The Deer in "Maitri" brings the quality of wisdom, connection with inner gentleness, a clear connection and the innocence of their inner child. It reveals to you a fresh perspective on old issues.
