I would like to take this moment to say thank you in this ordinary world to Beaver! When Beaver came into my life I didn’t know that there would be new direction that my life was going to take, but all I did know, was that now, I had Beaver to share my journey with. I welcomed him in April 2013 and I was very intrigued about his presence. Anyone that knows me can tell you that the first thing that I would have done was to look him up in a resource book like Animal Speak or Animal Spirit Guides to research what are normal circumstances in which Beaver is called upon to help. This time around I felt no such compulsion. Instead I embarked in a total acceptance of his presence and I just wanted to establish a friendship with him.
Every time I journeyed it was so nice to see him there smiling and ready to be my wing man! We never spoke though he did have fun together. One thing I can tell you is that he really enjoys dancing. One memorable event was when he came into this reality to say hello and share a walk with us. My family and I went for a walk by the Fox River when my husband very excitedly said to the children “Look! There is a beaver swimming by us in the river!” I couldn’t believe it! We have been there to many walks and we had never encountered one before, but on that day this wonderful young beaver decided to join us in our walk. It was so nice to connect with him in this reality.
I went about my days in contemplation and just living my life as a mother, as a wife and then a new realization came to me. I realized and accepted the fact that I wanted to help others. Every workshop taken, every book that I have read was preparing me to be able to be of service to others. So in no time at all, I made my lists of things to do and things I need to get this new venture of the ground. Any moment that I had open and available I spent working on my new venture. I be honest I couldn’t believe how much time and energy it actually took, but what surprised me the most, was how much help and support I was given by my family and friends. I certainly could not have done it without them and specially without Beaver.
Now in retrospect I see how Beaver was the perfect power animal for me during this time (even though I didn’t know at the time, that I was going to start this new venture). I never felt overwhelmed with the task at hand and I never doubted that I would reach my goal. Looking back I see all those qualities in Beaver. He is steadfast and hardworking. He will get done what he needs to get done, no matter how many set backs he might encounter, he will just go ahead and continue on. He is a family man, he works hard but he always takes time out, to spend with his family in his lodge. My family is my number one priority, so he helped me keep that balance between my family, friends and work. He made it seamless for me. It didn’t feel like a task at all. Some times I pictured him coming home to his family and telling them about his day.
So what have I learned? I learned that Beaver is who you want by your side when you have work or goals to achieve while making sure that your family and community does not get neglected. For the Beaver doesn’t give up in adversity because their work is truly about survival and he is a creature that is part of a great community. He will lend his determination and industrious nature to you, so you can see your task at hand completed. So hail and well met to Mr. Beaver for he will always be welcomed in my life and thank you for all the great insights and strength you have given me in the past few months. I am a lucky gal to have a friend like you!
