Birth Totem: Beaver April 20th - May 20th
Birth Totem Beaver is one whose outer personality is immersed in an inner sense of insecurity as he/she enters their present incarnation. This lack of self worth may stem from an unstable early childhood environment or sense of personal loss. The beaver will then work furiously at building a comfortable dam for himself in which he can feel truly safe and secure. He is one who will work persistently and give his devoted attention to any task he sets his mind to until the project has been completed, allowing nothing to distract him in the process. As he grows in maturity and yearns to move beyond the comfort and security of his need to have and to possess things of material value, Beaver looks within himself to identify the long buried fear, loss or betrayal which has haunted him all the years leading up to that point in time, and have cumulated in the massive dam of twigs, logs and branches that clutter his mental and emotional space. The resulting fortress is ponderous indeed, and built as much to prevent others from gaining access to him (which he may equate with exposure to being "hurt" yet again), as to have the satisfaction of knowing he can depend upon himself free of connection to others.
Yet since we are all here to interact with, learn from, and love one another, this house of twigs and branches is bound to collapse in upon the beaver at some stage along their soul’s progression. Yet, once the connection has been made that there is something "more" than having a roof over her head or a steady source of income to rely upon, Beaver can then apply her great sense of industry and resourcefulness toward overcoming the weights that threaten to pull her under into the murky waters of operating through unconsciousness. Think of the beaver as she constructs her dam, she is the reformer of the animal kingdom as she goes busily about gnawing down the wood necessary to build the dam which will safely protect and shelter herself and her offspring. In so doing, she not only changes the landscape or the vista of the woodlands about her, she changes the flow of water along the stream or river, creating a new energy to the balance of nature.What is this if not reformation, and the recognition that in order for new life to be given the chance to thrive and flourish, the old must first be cleared away? In tackling her life from the perspective of personal growth, beaver then moves beyond the conscious intent to have and possess, to find security within, and thereby completes the mission of the higher self.
Birth Totem Beaver
April 20 - May 20
Beaver is the builder of the Animal Kingdom, and has a strong sense of family and home. In building its home, you will find several entrances and exits.
Beaver never limits itself to one escape route. Beaver's lesson for us is: 'not to paint ourselves in a corner'. In addition, Beaver is well equipped to protect its creation. - excerpts from "Medicine Cards"by Jamie Sams
The Beaver Totem reminds you that you have to act on your dreams to make them a reality. It is time for action! Beaver can show you how to construct wonderful dreams. In essence, Beaver tells you to believe in your dreams as if they were real. Build on them as if the dream is your reality.
Beaver Totem is water and earth energy, and incorporates a strong sense of family and home.
Beaver medicine is associated with the subconscious, the place where hidden knowledge and forgotten dreams are stored. Beaver reminds you to live your dreams, manifesting them by using the resources available.
Beavers have a gentle nature and are very industrious. An achiever is characterized by industriousness; Beaver knows that limitations cancel productivity.
With their sharp teeth and paddle-like tail, they are more than capable of protecting their creation. Totem Beaver tells you to look for alternative solutions to life's challenges and to protect the creations that you put your love and energy into.
A Beaver sets the example of teamwork for you to take into your work life and your family life. Dreams are easier to build with a team helping. To accomplish a goal with others, involves working with the group-mind, each partner in the project honoring the talents and abilities of others. In working well with others, a sense of unity develops.
The Beavers' dams are made of wood held together with mud and leaves. These dams are very detailed. This kind of accomplishment does not happen overnight and it does not happen by just wishing of completion. Beaver symbolizes working diligently. Beavers are expert builders. Their dams are strong and secure. Beaver may be asking you to strengthen the foundation on which you stand or to build a new one. If you continue to stand on old foundations, new opportunities will pass you by.
Beavers are master engineers and they alter environments. Creative and clever, they turn streams into lakes with their dams. When they leave, the dams eventually decay and a fertile meadow replaces the lake. Beaver knows how to work in harmony with the environment and can show you how to do the same.
Beaver Totem also symbolizes play, enjoyment, fun and games. The Beaver shares quality time with the family. This is a reminder to take time for self, friends, and family. The people in our lives are precious ~ treasure them!
Beavers can stay submerged underwater for fifteen minutes. Controlling its breath is one of its attributes. Those with Birth Totem Beaver would benefit from yoga or any kind of breath exercises.
If you are a Beaver Totem, do not neglect your dental care; this, along with developing a sense of inner peace is essential to those with a Beaver Totem.
Those with this Totem will find that they must work hard to obtain their goals. The spirit of Beaver teaches us that personal effort leads to many rewards. The key is to apply quiet ambition with gentle persistence and the willingness to work with others to achieve your goals. Also, remember to be kind to yourself!
