Chipmunk – Spirit Animal 

Chipmunks and squirrels are a frequent sight when I’m out on the trail. It’s not uncommon to encounter them in their natural territory, yet every once in awhile one hangs out and is just a little more mischievous. I’m not sure about the significance of waking up this morning with a chipmunk on my mind. Was there a particular reason this little furry critter crossed my mind? Could it be that I dreamed about an adventure running through lush meadows, having a picnic with my animal kingdom friends while frolicking in nature? I don’t know and I seldom remember any of my dreams, but my curiosity was peaked. How did the chipmunk fit into the picture today? 

It seems that these days everything has a meaning and is some sort of a spiritual sign, so it was no surprise to learn that chipmunks are spirit animals. I find it amazing of how much my awareness has raised, how trusting my intuition has become and how rewarding the journey, the adventure can be when you don’t resist and when you are grateful for the current moment. I can only imagine reading about raising your vibration is associated with what I just described and a positive outlook. 
 The symbolic meaning of the chipmunk stands for changes and revelations. Seeing the initial description made me smile. “What a surprise there” came to mind as I continued on to learn more. Chipmunk announces that something good is on the way. Something that will delight your heart and make you smile and laugh. (I’m smiling already). Chipmunk has hidden pathways and tunnels in proper sight all around us, popping up out of nowhere while sharing the energy of play and exploration. Chipmunk loves a good adventure and exploration while noticing every little change within its environment. A pebble or leaf out of place, chipmunk will notice and tell anyone near by who is willing to listen to the changes of the environment. The chipmunk totem brings the gift of artistic endeavors and creativity while teaching the magic of intuition and wishes being granted. My intuition is strong already but I’m wishing and dreaming big right now as I manifest these changes to take root within my life. The dreamer within me is in hot pursuit of its “Happily ever after” and believes that wishes and dreams come true every day. That magic is around the corner for all of us and is hiding in every secret tunnel and pathway. Believe, seek and you shall find…



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO
