Tick bite? Maybe it’s time to set some limits. (Tick spirit animal meaning)

Boundaries.
Kind of like putting on tick repellent. Slather on, watch the bloodsuckers drop away.
(Got my first tick bite of the year yesterday, can you tell?) 🙂

Tick Power Animal Guidance

Much as no one likes the critters, ticks do have this important spiritual lesson to teach: Some people, some energies, just call for boundaries. Strong ones. 

And, they call for awareness. Constant awareness. Even more than the overtly dangerous ones.

Because they don’t look threatening, on the surface. They can look anything but. Bloodsuckers may appear on the scene looking little and helpless, attractive and friendly, like capable leaders, or just plain unremarkable.

But they have this nasty habit of creeping quietly up your shirt or into your hair without you even realizing it – until suddenly you realize how deeply they’ve drilled their energy-draining selves in under your skin…

…or your bank account, or even your pants. (Or your psyche, or your soul.)

Some people don’t like to hear about things like this, or think about them.

I don’t either. And I sure don’t advocate dwelling on them. That will only draw them to you.

But, it’s a REALLY good idea to acknowledge they are there. And to be proactive about keeping them out.

So here’s the takeaway from Tick totem today: Take your boundary setting and spiritual protection seriously, folks. (Not as a reason to worry, but so you won’t have to.) 🙂
Blessings,
Christie
P.S. Sometimes the boundaries you have to set are within yourself. 
Those inner bloodsuckers can be the hardest to identify, bring to light, and smash to smithereens.  And be warned: Once you do attain that kind of clarity, it can require making some hard choices should you decide to take action on it.
But once you do, oh, boy, that’s when life starts to rock!
(I had no idea yesterday’s tick had embedded itself into my shoulder until someone else pointed it out. If you’ve been feeling drained in any way lately, like you can’t seem to get traction in your business or your life purpose, maybe it’s time for a spiritual “tick check.” Request a spiritual clarity  session here.)

Are you protected?

It’s a truly gorgeous Spring day today, so I feel a little funny about bringing this up, but it’s been on my mind lately and I was reminded of it again today, so it feels like it needs saying.

As much as we might like it to be, the world isn’t all love and light. Just like there are nasty bacteria, parasites and predators out there in Nature, so there are psychic energies that will take us down if they can. Anti-angels, if you will. Negative energies, evil spirits, whatever you want to call them. Some of them are downright vicious. And simply ignoring them or denying their true nature won’t necessarily get rid of them.

I’m not saying this lightly. I didn’t use to believe in such things, and I paid dearly for my naivete. Which is why I’m writing this. I will probably lose subscribers because of it, because a lot of people just don’t want to hear it. But so be it. Because it is SO important to be aware of these things and protect yourself from them.

What can you do?

1. Practice awareness. Negative energies can easily slip in when we’re not aware. Start really tuning in to what’s going on with your body and your emotions, and what’s going on around you. You can do that through non-judgemental observation and quieting your mind. Yoga can help with this, and meditation.

2. Cultivate discernment. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what’s really in your best interest. Get in the habit of asking your body. Your body doesn’t lie. If your “gut reaction” to something or someone is a tight or uncomfortable sensation, something’s probably not in alignment with your highest good.


3. Bring in protection
. Call in the Light, and angelic help daily. Archangel Michael is fabulous for this. Just ask him to surround you with protection. Your protector animal guides can help guard you from harm, too.
archangel michaelWhat NOT to do:

Don’t freak out. I’m not talking paranoia here. I’m talking basic protection and common sense. Like washing your hands after handling raw chicken. Or looking both ways before crossing the street. Or staying away from creepy people. Simple awareness goes a long way! 🙂

In the big, big picture, the dark stuff simply helps the light shine brighter. That’s its purpose, so there’s really no good or bad. But hey, in the little picture that we live in, it pays to be conscious of that stuff, and stay away from it. It’s so much more fun in the sun.
