This morning while walking the labyrinth, I encountered a fox! It came scurrying out of the forest, across the labyrinth and into the trees on the far side. I immediately recognized it as a message from spirit! And it certainly was!
According to http://www.spirit-animals.com:
If Fox has made Her appearance in your life;
The solution to a problem is at hand. The Fox spirit is the grand problem solver. She will guide you to solitude and silence until the way out is shown. A healthy combination of persistence and patience will strike a balance that picks apart a problem until it is solved.
Alternatively, are you having trouble adjusting to a new living situation or job? Do you feel like you’re barely scraping by? When sly Fox crosses your path it can be a signal to open your eyes, so that you can see the situation for what it is – not as you wish it to be.
When a situation or environment is difficult allow yourself to be fluid and adaptable. You have all the tools and resources you need to turn money, career, or living difficulties around.
I, in fact, have been dealing with several issues [it’s why I was at the labyrinth], not the least of which, is my health! So having a fox make an appearance with this message was both refreshing and reassuring!
Foxes aren’t the only creatures bringing me messages. A few weeks ago, I noticed a robin hanging around the labyrinth. I thought it unusual because it didn’t seem afraid of me. I got the sense that it had a purpose. So I looked it up and discovered that robin brings a spiritual message, particularly as relates to teaching us how to incorporate new beginnings with faith and trust in the process, believing in yourself and using the inspiration that is given, and listening carefully, for it is time sing your own song for a new period in your life. Again, this made sense to me!
Several years ago, I had several close encounters with skunks. I discovered later, that skunks are meant to bring our attention to something in our lives that literally stinks. There were a couple of situations at that time in my life that literally did stink, that I also ignored and paid a high price for. Skunks also represent self esteem and they are meant to show us that we have the courage and willpower to deal confidently with a situation or right a wrong which I certainly could have used at the time. Since then, I have trusted the wisdom of animal spirit.
If you have an unusual or frequent encounter with a certain animal, check it out, it may be bringing you an important message.
Have an awesomely foxy day!
