The gathering power of squirrel medicine is a great gift. I teaches you how to gather and store your energy for times of need. It teaches you to reserve something for future use, whether it be a judgment, an opinion, a savings account, candles, or extra food.
In today’s times and fortunes, it is the wise person who prepares for the future. Our prophesies have all spoken of the end of the Millennium and the changes to come. Squirrel is a friendly medicine to have, in light of possible future rainy days. It’s message is to be prepared, but not to go nuts with it. Love yourself enough to gather the goods that will meet your needs in the times for scarcity, even if that time never comes.
If squirrel has scurried into your cards today, it may be that you are being told to honor your future by readying yourself for change. The message could be to lighten your load if you have gathered too many ‘things’ that do not serve. These ‘things’ can include thoughts, worries pressures, stress, or gadgets that have been broken for years. In understanding the balance involved in gathering, you need to look at the idea of circulating the stock of what you have gathered.
Squirrel has another lesson which can aid you if you observe what is obvious, and which can prepare you for anything. It has to do with the safe place in which to put your gathers. This safe place is an untroubled heart and mind, and that which is gathered to put in this place is wisdom and caring. The energies you gather will set your mind and heart free, so that you will know that all will be taken care of in its own time. Apply this to your fears about the future and they will vanish.
