“Frog medicine” refers here to the holistic healing and purifying of the body, mind, heart, and, soul. This medicine is actualized in the physical form as “Kambo,” which is an immunity-boosting medicine that comes from a frog secretion. Similarly, in the dream form, the appearance of the frog signifies an opportunity to release stagnant energy and toxins that stand in the way of our optimal health and well-being.
The first step in receiving the gifts of frog medicine is this: surrender. For example, if there are areas in our life situations where we are struggling to swim and stay afloat, we must surrender, in order to sink into the experience more fully. Then, when we realize we can breathe underwater, we receive the transformation we seek. The frog opens our energy channels, so the Source Energy can flow through us.
The Frog Symbolizes Cleansing.
Affirmation: Through the symbol of the frog, I dive into the waters, dark and deep. And from the mud I bloom, like a pure white lotus flower.
The frog is closely associated with the water, making it a symbol of cleansing, along with renewal and refreshment. When we discover a frog, whether it be outdoors or inner visions, we are called to cleanse ourselves from the inside out. It’s time to address those old wounds, through self-care, trusting our frog medicine to work its magic.
Let the teardrops flow like rain! The frog brings wellness, by inviting us to dive deep into the dark and murky waters of our conscious, subconscious, and superconscious minds, where lily pads and lotus flowers spring up. One way to achieve this transformation is to listen to music that moves us to dance. Another way is to sing out loud. When we visualize the frog in our dreams, we bathe in the green light, where healing happens.
