#Nature Awareness 5/23/2013 - Parrot. Parrots are quite often some of the most vivid birds in the animal kingdom. They are known and adored for their bright plumage, flair, high intelligence, and the ability to learn words and communicate them back. Parrots will teach those working with this totem the qualities needed to capture the color, joy, and magic in life's endeavors. Parrot teaches listening to all of nature and awakening to the language within using intuition for more open communications. They bridge understandings, one to another, and will show a deeper and very subtle harmony inherent in all things through their keen spiritual perceptions. As a natural animal, parrots display many of these things in basic interactions, such as intelligence, good temperament, and a even sense of diplomacy, too. Symbolism: sharp visions, spiritual perceptions, high level of intelligence, language, vibrancy, alertness, bravery, calm demeanor, style.
#Nature Awareness 5/22/2013 - Stingray. The stingray often shows itself as a totem to those who have enhanced "feeling" senses. It is the stingray's natural electrical sensors that alert it to potential dangers, and these electrical awarenesses cross over into metaphysical symbology as well. When the stingray appears it could be a sign that you need to become more aware of your surroundings. The stingray's coloring allows it to safely camouflage itself in the sand on the ocean floor. Are you keeping yourself low and out of sight? When stingray shows up it could indicate a time to keep to yourself and stay out of the lime light. Symbolism: planning and counter-planning, protection, emotional and mental balance, sensory talents, creating fundamental realities, awareness.
