My animal loving 7 year old daughter chose the animal for today’s post. She went vegetarian over a year ago for ethical reasons and has a particular fondness for the big cats. She even wrote a book about Lynx and Bobcat’s over summer break in 2014; here are a couple of snap shots of pages from the book (yes, I am a proud mama!!!) Cougar, also known as the mountain lion or puma, represents traits of leadership, critical thinking, assertiveness and forward motion. A fierce and graceful predator, the cougar embodies a no-nonsense approach to life. Cougar takes control of any situation, no matter the ramifications with others. This energy moves swiftly once a decision has been made and doesn’t look back.
Cougar energy does need to be tamed with infusions of patience and compassion. Also, if you are looking for that someone special beware of this predator! The cougar energy is more of a player than someone who sticks around for your happily-ever-after if you know what I mean. The term, “here for a good time not a long time” comes to mind.
The cougar is your power animal if:
– you are an action oriented individual who is confident in your own decisions
– find yourself to be the leader in most situations in life
– enjoy time alone over socializing
– you are well balanced in your emotions
If you are interested in spirit, totem and power animals, I have also written about the owl, dragonfly, butterfly, wolf, deer and squirrel. I would love to hear about any impactful animal sighting you have had and I also consider requests for posts so please leave your feedback in the comments. My current plan is to write about the eagle and crow this month.
How do you know if you have an animal spirit guide? Typically 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. I write about this in both my dragonfly and owl posts. If the animal shows up in a significant incident, the single sighting brings a strong message to you.
