If Gorilla has come across your path, it is a signal for us to raise our heads and recognize the nobility within us. This is not prideful or boastful behavior. Rather, this great ape exudes a quiet honor and a still dignity that makes a much more profound statement than any boast.
This animal also gives us a message of leadership but not of the aggressive kind. Rather, this ape manages other members within the troop with temperance, understanding, compassion and balance. Very seldom is aggression or violence required in order to get the point across. The gorilla reminds us that tyrannical leaders will never win respect. The message here is that decency, honesty, and quiet charisma win loyal followers.
Alternatively it could be a confirmation that your endeavors are solid and steady. You are reminded to stay grounded and handle your responsibilities. This animal totem will help you find your inner strength.
If Gorilla is your Animal Totem, then you are a leader and easily command groups of people through strength of will, decisiveness and mediation of conflict. With this leadership you understand responsibility. You always take full protective responsibility of those within your command. You fully understand that a good leader is a leader who serves the needs of the followers. You also lead by example and with integrity.
REMINDER OF THE DAY #23: Believe in MAGIC! Open your heart and mind's eye to the unseen things behind the veil, in the underworld, the angelic realms. Don't always settle for the Realistic. Make a horse fly! Close your eyes and take an elevator to the clouds! Without the need to flee into it, magic will make your life so much more colorful.
"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always" ~ Mahatma Gandhi
