  • About Bear:
    • Defined by long periods of hibernation & inward focus
    • Connected deeply to earth and ground
    • Balances hibernation with periods of intentional emergence
    When Bear shows up in your life, it may be time for you to turn inward, check in with yourself and what you need. Bear often signals that we have over-exerted or looked outside of ourselves too much for validation and nourishment.

    Bear will remind you how to listen deeply to your own intuition and self-knowing, to trust that spending time alone will serve you well. The medicine of this animal will ground you, help you come back to a sense of solidity within yourself.

    If you have been extremely inward when Bear shows up in your life, it may be a time to rebalance and extend yourself outward. Remembering that it is good to periodically come out into the world and stretch yourself, breathe in life around you, and use that as fuel to strengthen as you prepare for your next inward dive.
  • Bear is best known for hibernation. They know how to develop stores of nourishment so that they can go into hibernation for long periods of time without needing to look outside of themselves for sustenance. They are comfortable with solitude and how that can lead to tremendous self-knowing and healing.

    Because hibernation is a quiet, inward time, Bear also represents connection to the subconscious and unconscious, which often get drowned out by too much noise and the activity of everyday life.

    And while hibernation is the hallmark of Bear, this burly animal balances the inactivity of wintertime with active emergence in the spring. Tending cubs, teaching them new skills, foraging and preparing patiently and expertly for the next round of hibernation.
