Squirrel comes today to teach balance, there is a time for play and interaction with community but there is also a time for preparedness, and future planning.
Few, if any, animals are busier than a squirrel during the autumn. They gather enough nuts and seeds to get through the winter and bury them. For us this is not only important on the physical level - it can also mean being as flexible as Squirrel when it comes to allowing and starting change.
When squirrels prepare for the winter, they gather only what they require. This teaches us the importance of letting go/getting rid of unnecessary physical objects, and also negative beliefs, emotions and memories which limit our faith in love and abundance. We need to lighten our load, physically, mentally and emotionally.
Ask yourself are you too active, not active enough, afraid of enough, hung up on accumulating and collecting?
All squirrels are playful. They wrestle and chase each other just for fun. Watching squirrels chase one another up and down trees and across telephone wires is a good example of how squirrels release excess energies. When is the last time you played with others?
Squirrel tends to show up when your energy is erratic – trying to do many things at once. Take the time to stop and listen to your inner self – and don’t forget to play!
