Otter


I saw an otter, playing, tonight, while meditating.


Joy, Primal Feminine Energy
Otters awaken curiosity. They remind us that everything is interesting if we look at it from the right angle.
The Otter totem is connected to the primal feminine energies of life:the elements of both Earth and Water are present in Otter medicine.
With an Otter totem, you must remember the beauty of a balanced female side,creating a space for others to enter our lives without preconceptions or suspicions.Otter teaches that balanced female energy is not catty or jealous,but it is sisterhood and sharing with others.Otter expresses joy for others.
Remember that all of us, both men and women, have a feminine side.
If an Otter has entered your life, it may be time to find some play timein your life, to awaken your inner child.Allow events to unfold naturally in your life. Be careful not to hang on the material thingsin your life that bind you or become a burden.Become Otter and move gently into the river of life.

Otter These animals were considered very magickal by the Celts. During the voyages of Maelduine, Brendan and others, these traveling Celts were met by helpful otters. The otter is a strong protector who helps with gaining wisdom, finding inner treasures or valuable talents, faithfulness, and the ability to recover from any crisis. Enjoy life instead of just enduring it.

Interesting. I'd like to note that another aspect of the otter is it's between-the-worlds-ness, touched on by the description of it being both of water and of earth. Like rabbits are of the Earth and the Underworld.

Are you saying that I don't belong anywhere??? :)

Otter utterly rocks. Several times while sea kayaking I have been greeted or followed by otters. I don't recall meeting one in meditation, however. How lucky you are!

Being between the worlds means you get to be in both realms. You belong in both places and mediate between them. That's the diplomatic labor of a witch. ;)
