Squirrel is telling us: prepare for change! remember to play! since February 01st! I feel we - as a tribe - left this sweet Spirit ally hanging for 28 days and so she returns this month to remind us there is inner work to be done. it is the first time a Spirit guide returns two months in a row, most likely because her message didn't reach all listeners.

Squirrel may be telling us to honor our future by readying ourselves for change. the message can be to lighten our load if we have gathered too many "things" that no longer serve us. these "things" can include thoughts, worries, pressures, stresses, or gadgets that have been broken for years. 

Squirrel may have yet another lesson which can help us if we observe what is obvious, and which can prepare us for anything. it has to do with the safe place in which we put our gatherings. this safe place is an untroubled heart and mind, and that which is gathered to put in this place is wisdom and caring. 

Squirrel always have time to play. often in between gathering, they start to leap at each other and roll about in the leaves. Squirrel also seem to enjoy simply resting on a tree branch, enjoying the peace and quiet. this teaches us that there is time for everything in life, that the balance between work, play, rest and contemplation is essential to our overall feeling of well being and harmony. we are also taught the balance within the circle of gathering and giving out. our energy must not be wasted, but conserved for times of need. 

Squirrel is very trusting and is one of the few (wild) animals that will eat out of a person’s hand. this symbolizes a need to let down your defenses, and to learn to trust more. trust issues can be present in all aspects of a person’s life from personal intimacy to trusting the universe. you must realize and remember that you will be taken care of. building a strong sense of trust where it is missing would compliment the power of this medicine.
