I would be proud to be a goose…how about you?
December 22, 2012
I keep seeing 4 Geese flying along side of me or right above me, so I decided to investigate a little.
I went to one of my favorite sites to get some insight on this sign I keep receiving, down to the number of Geese and the Geese themselves. To see exactly what she had to say check out her site http://www.whats-your-sign.com/animal-symbolism-goose.html
Four represents balance.
You can look at it many different ways.
The elements: Earth, Wind, Water and Fire.
Direction: North, South, East and West.
Self: Physical Body, Spiritual Body, Emotional Body, and the Mental Body.
Balance is key for all kinds of growth.
Now for the beautiful attributes of the Goose. My heart swelled with love when I read about the Goose. I was not expecting this type of reaction. Below are the key words associated with the goose.
Some Key words that represent the Goose:
For me what struck me just so was the loyalty she describes. They will stay with each other till the end. They will never be left alone.
My personal message in all of this is two-fold. Now is the time for me to embark on my new journey. But in doing so I must not lose sight of my family or the people who are in my life. I must be confident in my choices and communicate my intentions. The bravery and determination play in to all aspects of our lives and I must remember to be brave in embracing the new and unknown while showing fierce determination to follow through.
The protection piece is simple for me, I will protect my family forever. While I have a breath to breath and even when I am no longer on this plane.
A friend of mine recently did a reading for me to help me through my surgery and to help me understand what transitions and transformations I am currently undergoing. She helped me see the sense in many things that were happening to my body as well as my spirit body. collaboration was a big message. Which matches up with the Goose. It is a strong reminder of teamwork, collaborating, and fellowship. It is a reminder of the work that is to be done. But most importantly it is a reminder that we wont be working alone.
I also know that the meaning and symbology of the goose is not just for me. While at work today (looking up the symbology of the goose) a coworker of mine told me a story of how just the other night a goose flew into his windshield! I could not help but chuckle to myself. Why you might be asking? Because for all the doubts I had before I looked up the symbology (and I had many. I kept thinking, it is not a sign there are tons of geese, of course you’re seeing geese) his story erased all my doubts. They are a sign. To me and each and every one of us!
They remind us to forge ahead with confidence and bravery. they’re fiercely protective of their young and are compassionate keepers of their communities. We need to stand up and learn to effectively communicate to our fellow-man and we need to work together as a team. We need to remember where we came from, who we are and what we truly believe in.
The goose seems to have gotten a bad rap, but there is a reason they are making their presence known…we need to look to what they represent and then look within and see if we are following the Goose’s lead.
The number four in relation to the Goose for all of us is to remember that balance is the key. We must keep ourselves grounded as well as connected to spirit. We must not get caught up fighting for something that we are not fully vested in, or we will lose sight on the real issues. We must balance our lives to be able to balance our communities. Take action but don’t forget or lose sight on the original reason the action was taken. Remain open-minded.
Being grounded is key to receiving spirit and being able to listen to the voice within. Passion is a purposeful fire, but like fire with out a border or boundary it can burn out of control, balance is what keeps that passion within control.
Have a wonderful weekend and ponder if you can on the goose.
