A great deal has been happening around my family, some of it very stressful. Although my readings continue on to show not only relief, but great success, we aren’t there yet …..and have been challenged to really think outside of the box to stay above water. This has been a humbling experience to say the least!
I have had some interesting synchronicities and I feel, help from Spirit.
My husband decided he would try to sell his dress watch for some much needed funds. He put up an ad on Kijiji with the details. A day later, a nice gentleman called him inquiring about the watch. As the conversation unfolded, it turned out that he was also an Englishman who emigrated to Canada, and amazingly had lived in the same little town that my husband had for years! He knew all the places that we did! lol. That was strange in itself, but the clincher came when he told my husband that he had posted a ‘Wanted’ ad for the exact model of watch that my husband posted for sale!!! We hadn’t seen it!
I definitely think that the Universe lined up that nice match 🙂
Today, just after a rushed morning with a house showing, we were sitting in the kitchen having a bite to eat. Both of us were very surprised to see this funny looking little white animal with a black spot on it’s tail. I had to ‘Google’ it to be sure that my guess was correct- it was a really cute ferret! Something you never see around here (and I guess was an escaped pet). He did a very funny charm routine with us through the window; it made us both laugh and lighten up after all the stress.
When I have sightings out of the norm of an animal, there is usually a spiritual message there for me. Knowing nothing about ferrets, I did a little research and came across this entry about the spiritual significance of a ferret:
“The ferret is a member of the weasel family. They are happy playful animals with the curiosity of the raccoon and the gentleness of a kitten. Archaeological and historical sources suggest that ferrets have been domesticated for at least 2,500 years. Historical documents from Greece mention the ferret about 450 BC, and Roman documents mention the use of ferrets to hunt rabbits at about the time of Christ. Adept at tunnel hunting it is believed that the ferret was used by the Egyptians as well as farmers and mariners to control rodent populations in barns and on ships. However, the history of the ferrets domestication is speculative without actual proof giving this little animal an illusive quality.
Ferrets are opportunists They will steal anything they can drag away hiding it in a safe place to be used at a later date. Intelligent and crafty this little animal teaches us how to use our ingenuity to create a safe haven for ourselves. They remind us to stock up on necessary provisions that might be needed. Always well prepared for any situation that might appear the ferret is a helpful ally in times of hardship.
The ferrets eyes point forward straight down their nose. Extremely focused on what is in front of them they remind us to stay centered on our goals to reach a desired outcome. Ferrets hold the power of observation. Their keen sense of smell coupled with their ability to see clearly in the darkness links them to the underworld where the secrets of creation are stored. Its intuition is sharp and its sensitivity acute. Ferret has the ability to see and know the hidden meaning behind all things and can assist those with this medicine in understanding themselves, their lives and the experiences they have more clearly.
Those with this totem need to remember to use all of their senses equally. If this medicine is underdeveloped the tendency towards tunnel vision is common. Rigid consciousness creates unnecessary worry and anxiety so caution is advised. Playful activities and a lighthearted attitude is helpful.
When frightened or excited the ferrets tail bushes up and a musty scent is excreted. Although this scent does repel some predators the ferret does not feel completely safe until it has burrowed deep inside its tunnel. In man this symbolizes the need of a secure home life. A place for reflection and nourishment is mandatory for those with this totem.
Ferrets are incredibly fast and agile and show us how to move with lightning speed to avoid danger. Do you need to move more quickly in some aspect of your life? Are you stuck in rigid thought patterns that limit your view of the bigger picture? Have you created a safe haven for yourself? Is your power of observation a hindrance or a help?
Always remember that the ferret is a powerful ally and can help you discover a hidden part of yourself. Buried deep beneath the surface are the answers to life’s mysteries. If you are having trouble understanding some part of your life invite the ferret into your meditation, listen to what it has to tell you and then act accordingly.”
I resonated with this message greatly! I will definitely invite this little fellow into my meditation and see what happens.
I hope that Life will finally settle down shortly and leave me some time and energy to be active here on the blog again.
In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving this week to all my fellow Americans down South….may you have a wonderful Holiday.
