~Bear, Bear Claw ~
The bear represents an ability to act fiercely when necessary, but only if absolutely needed. They are ferocious protectors of their young & unpredictable when aggressive. Native American tribes use the bear to represent the warrior's spirit.
Worshiped as a God and mother to all planets, the sun is the reason our planet came to be. One cannot take its overwhelming influence for granted. The sun gives us light, warmth, seasons, energy, the aurora borealis, pink and orange sunsets or sunrises, our summer sun tan and our direction home. We are all made of elements made in the nuclear furnace of a star, expelled into space in its death rattle known as a super nova. We are literally made of stardust. We are stardust that has become aware of itself...1888 feels an interesting kindred to the sun symbol for this reason. The sun does give us life, and we are made of materials formed in a star, but we are not made of the materials formed in our star...In that way the sun and our bodies share the deepest of physical connections.
My Mother used to say that if you came across a feather lying in your path, it’s a sign that you are headed in the right direction, your true path, and you should pick it up and keep it as a talisman of luck for your journey.
