Setting An Emotional Shield, With The Armadillo

During times of worry, when our life situation tests our sense of security, it’s a reminder to look inside ourselves, concentrating on the first chakra–the root chakra. The root chakra is the energetic focal point that relates to our essential worldly needs: food, shelter, safety, etc. The root chakra is red, the color of blood, the stop sign, and other symbols demanding our alertness.

One remedy for any imbalance in the root chakra is to breathe in the realization that the Provider provides. Truly, the surplus and the scarcity are only temporary peaks in any wave. Breathing in, I witness the extremes of these waves, reaching up and down, cresting and crashing, continuing to waver, and I hold no judgment. Breathing out, I firm myself in the continual wavering. Breathing in, I am safe. Breathing out, I am sound.

The Armadillo Symbolizes Protective Cover.

Affirmation: Through the symbol of the armadillo, here and now, I visualize my own protective armor, as a way of establishing clear boundaries. Like the armadillo’s shielded body, I shield myself in this moment.

When the armadillo shows up, it highlights a life situation that requires some protective measures. It might be best to retreat from an invasive energy, rather than being defensive. It’s important to be vigilant, seeking truth and looking for the deeper meaning that may exist beneath any deceit, for example, while staying firm in your values. Keep quiet, except when necessary to state what you don’t want, or, more importantly, to ask for what you do want.

Dream Reader’s Statement, Intention, and Re-introduction

A few months ago, I discovered a natural dream interpretation ability in myself. This is aligned with the Carl Jung method of interpreting dreams as valuable messages from the subconscious. This week, I started seeking messages in “Dream Animals” or “Spirit Animals,” with a similar type of interpretation. Today, I am inspired to sketch an animal each week, or possibly even every day, as it spontaneously arrives in mind, seeking the messages inside.
