Each creature is a reflection of aspects of ourselves, our body, heart, mind, and spirit. The snake reminds us of the rich depth and healing available when we traverse the underworld and face our shadow and encourages us to choose somatically for our highest good. The lion is grounded in heart and courage, invokes our fierce compassion, and the integrity at our core. The owl invites our wonder and connection to spirit and inspires our curiosity. The butterfly dwells in the between worlds. It tenderly alights on the mind’s eye as a guide for intuition. We are a part of nature, not apart from it.
