Welcome to 2022 dear friends and family. We are starting the year with a new month and new energy has stepped forward. Honestly I didn’t know who or what would show up as we begin anew, building upon all we have achieved last year. And what a year it has been. At first I was a little surprised to see Otter Spirit stepping forward, reminding us that we are never alone, but then it all made sense. When I look back at the past months, I see myself almost as if in isolation. Partly self inflicted and partly because people have come and gone on their path that at one point collided with mine. The self inflicted part, perhaps stems from a lack of either encountering like minded souls who walk the path as well, or perhaps even because of a believe of not being understood. Of accepting such a belief and knowing that part of this journey, part of this path has to be walked alone. Have you felt this way? Perhaps now, with all the knowledge and wisdom we have gathered, it’s time to remember that we are never truly alone.
Like true friend, Otters nurture each other and express their affection through touch. Actions such as holding hands and giving hugs offer reassurance that we were never really alone and that we are always cherished. Otter spirit has appeared to remind you to experience and express friendship in a tangible and even tactile way. Communicate with your voice, your facial expressions, gestures, and your actions, letting your love express itself beyond just the words you speak. Otter spirit’s message is that presence matters, so remember to be fully present with those you care about, helping them sense the love and affection and appreciation you have for them. Now is the time for a joyful celebration of the love in your life that expresses as friendship and companionship. Hug someone, touch their arm, or simply look into their eyes with your full attention, saying “I care. You matter,” Make time for friendship. Otter spirit promises that the moment you reach out, you will remember that you too have many who love and care about you. You are never alone and you are always loved.
You deserve support and love from many people and when Otter spirit arrives, you are reminded that you have a community behind you. You are not alone unless you choose to walk alone. Even then your community is behind you and cheers for you in silence. Somewhere is another supporter that is waiting for the opportunity and the gift of being able to give to you. You could take great joy in seeing their affection, happiness, and joy once you allow their kindness to shower you. Otter spirit wants you to open your eyes and whether you choose to take advantage of the love that surrounds you or not, you need to be aware that it is there for you from all directions.
Have a wonderful month my friends and know that you are loved and supported.
