Totem Animal for May 2019
TOTEM ANIMAL for May 2019
As a symbol in different cultures, jackal has a very important meaning. In ancient Greece, Anubis was the Greek name for the Egyptian God that had a jackal-shaped head. Jackal is also mentioned more than 14 times in the Bible, as a symbol of loneliness, abandonment and desolation. Jackal shows up as our guide this month to empower ourselves in our unique traits. It is time to truly live who you are in a way that makes sense to you and brings you joy. There is no more need to fit in or prove yourself. You are strong enough to overcome any sense of loneliness, abandonment or feeling separate, because you are different.
This month will help you to be aware of who you are. Become more aware of how you use your energy, where you need to adjust your boundaries and where do you hold yourself back or push too hard to obtain something and set your expectations too high.
Jackals are very intelligent and learn from a very young age to survive alone in the wilderness. They are determined scavengers and very brave when it comes to getting what they want and need to survive. Jackal guides you to go for your dreams and to believe more for yourself than ever before. Persist in putting in the effort, but do not waste energy on forcing the outcome that you want.
To survive tough living conditions, they need to have a creative approach in surviving and protecting themselves from larger animals. The jackal comes to teach you how to be creative in forming a new approach to life. Our old ways, habits and systems do not make sense anymore. Be creative in finding new ways of approaching every aspect in your life. Always with compassion and with peace and joy in mind.
Be very aware of integrity and how you view what is good and true. Do you judge others for not doing what is right, but also react in anger too easily? Jackal teaches us to approach each living being with humble intent and you shall reap the benefits. Be inspired to stretch yourself beyond what you have felt, believed and accomplished before. If you feel that you lack inspiration, ask your angels and guides to assist in that department.
May you have a joyful May.
