Slug

  While weeding the garden this morning, I came upon some of these little creatures. Admittedly, I wasn't too happy to see them, but I have to say I am pleasantly surprised by their significance.

The silvery trails slugs leave behind represents sacred writings and spiritual messages. There is an ethereal quality about slugs...and because of their slick coating...stuff just slides right off of them. It's therefore a totem for letting go of the past, bad habits, our stories, the roles and relationships that have ceased being useful. Slug can teach us how to experience the simple freedom that accompanies detachment. To truly not give a shit can be a liberating experience!

Slugs are almost pure muscle and is an omen of great (sometimes hidden) strength. A reminder to create a strong body for yourself. As a matter of fact, slug represents the importance of having a good balance between the physical, emotional, and mental bodies.

If you are seeing slugs, as I have been, examine the following questions and see if they apply:

Ask: Have you been procrastinating on taking that first step toward the changes you know you need to make?

Ask: Have you lost yourself in your roles in the lives of others, forgetting you are playing a starring role in your own life?

Ask: Are you afraid to shine? To express your real talents?

Ask: Are you ignoring your intuition?

Ask: Are you trying to do too much too soon?
