Mama Moose and two little ones

Native Americans see this animal totem in the North direction of the Medicine Wheel.  Brother and Sister Moose join Buffalo in this place of wisdom. It is from the recognition of wisdom being used in a situation and that recognition is deserved that defines self-esteem as the medicine of Moose.

People who have Moose medicine know when to use the gentleness of Deer and also when to create a stampede like Buffalo. Moose people understand the balance between giving orders to get things done and having the willingness to do things themselves.

We find Moose medicine a lot in our Elders who have walked the Good Red Road and have experienced many things during that journey. …..People who have the totem medicine of Moose know what to say, when to say it, and to whom.

Good resource:

“I like living.  I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.” – Agatha Christie

“I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night; but if you have been – if you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you – you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing is ever going to happen again.”    – C.S. Lewis in “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”

” I think that ones’s art is inside one.  I do not think one can explain growth.  It is silent and subtle.  One does not keep digging up a plant to see how it grows. – Emily Carr
