Today, when I dropped into my meditation to journey for this week's animal, I had barely closed my eyes and taken the first drum beat and fox was right there, waiting.
This is significant to note because fox is actually a totem of invisibility and the power of camouflage. So fox being so available and visible is a sign that it is of extra importance that we hear her guidance.
This week, and for a few weeks to come, we are to honour and be at peace with the fact that we are in a between time; a time where so much just seems suspended or left hanging in the balance.
Now, rather than fighting against the energy of this time, fox guides us to do our behind the scenes work, our shadow work. This means that, rather than forcing a project//relationship//ourselves forward, we are to hang back, to watch from the periphery and to gather the information//plant the seeds//study ourselves so that when the energy shifts and it is time to move forward, we are fully ready, empowered and capable to do so.
Take the time and space.
Allow yourself to move through the world unseen.
And then, with the most sacred sense of curiosity and the keenest of senses, explore your world and your place within it. Explore your spirit. Explore your true and wise heart.
From the sidelines we will have a better vantage point to see what is working//teaching and what no longer serves a purpose//needs to be released.
Commit to a true state of acceptance, allowance and grace. Surrender yourself to the seat of witness. Pay attention. And then become acutely aware of what truly resonates with the wisdom of your heart.
And so it is.
