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.) 🙂
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
