The “Fierce Defender”

cardinal.2018

Did you know that the male Cardinal bird is nicknamed the “Fierce Defender?”

In the Native American Culture, there are totem animals.  Animals have traits or symbolic qualities that we can apply to our own lives.  Jamie Sams and Ted Andrews are two people who have written extensively about this.  I refer to each of them when an animal crosses my path…especially an animal that I rarely see…like a bear or a wolf.  Or when I suddenly feel drawn to a particular animal.  I consult their books or go within myself to inquire as to what that animal offers that might be of help to me in any given situation.

Writing Prompt:
Is there an animal that has been crossing your path recently?  Or even one that you feel drawn to?  What might that be about?
