I couldn’t write this three part series without including the wolf. If you haven’t already read them, the first two posts include Mr. Squirrel and Mrs. Deer. The wolf evokes feelings of loyalty, nurturing and connection. When I realized the wolf was one of my power animals, the best way I can describe the sensations I felt is that the wolf made me feel like I was home and man did it feel good.
Not too long ago, while listening to Songza, I found myself wondering if wolf was truly one of my Power Animals. The very next song had the artist howling like a wolf during the chorus, I believe it was a Katie Perry song but I can’t be sure. It made me laugh out loud; the universe does work in mysterious ways.
When a wolf shows up it heralds a time of great spiritual protection. Old behaviours that no longer serve you are being left behind. This protective animal aids your confidence and self esteem as it asks you to trust yourself more now than ever. Just like a pack of wolves, embrace teamwork and cooperation over operating as a lone wolf.
You are not alone so get out there and have some fun with friends and howl at the moon! The wolf is after all the wild cousin of man’s best friend. You have a strong connection with the moon so pay attention to where you are in the rhythms of your life and honour those cycles.
If Wolf is your power animal:
– You prefer to avoid confrontations but possess unparalleled loyalty to your loved ones and will defend and protect them to the very end.
– Close bonds with community and family are of the upmost importance to you.
– You are a hugger! Affection comes easy to you.
– You lead from experience over formal education.
– People are always surprised to learn how shy you can be as you are very comfortable within your circle of friends and family.
When I saw this video I immediately watched it again. It is riveting, fascinating and has high production values. After just four minutes you will feel a renewed connection to the inter-connectedness of our planet and I hope, a newfound love and appreciation for the wolf. I highly encourage you to watch it.
I have two young daughters whose preference for Disney features dictates the selection for family movie night. I am now like a walking encyclopedia for the Disney Princess brand, I have achieved a Ph. D. in all things princess from the Snow White to Elsa and Anna and every woodland creature, evil step-mother and villain in-between.
Both Frozen and Beauty and the Beast depict frightening scenes of unprovoked hunger-crazed wolf packs chasing their intended prey with fierce and brutal force. While yes, wolves are carnivorous and hunt in packs, these movies spread a general untruth about wolves as man killers, spreading fear and distrust of this species. Much like the movie Jaws has done for the Great White Shark. Healthy wolves in the wild do not attack humans. This links to an article where you can expand on the dangers between wolves and humans, or should I say the lack of danger. The wolf is an iconic symbol with deep roots in spirituality and moon cycles. And just like spiritual matters, the wolf is so often misunderstood. They suffer from tremendous loss of habitat and population. I hope you have connected with your inner wolf and left the fear behind where it belongs.
Typically with spirit animals if an animal shows up for you three times in a short period of time, there is a message for you. Not all of us live in an abundance of nature so be aware of photos, songs, patterns, clothing, accessories, sculptures, etc that you encounter. If the animal shows up in a significant incident, the single sighting brings a strong message to you. Can you think of a recent encounter with one of your fellow residents from nature?
Sending you light & love – Lisa
