Early in the morning, I quietly sneak my way outside to our deck and journal or meditate.
The heat and humidity of the morning caused the no-see-ums to be busy and I was outnumbered. Using a shell I display on a table I lit incense for peace from the bugs and calm.
When I tried to insert the incense into the shell’s hole I hit resistance, so I tried again, and still no movement into the shell. Within a second the tiny beige/ brown frog that lives in our outside shower jumped out and gave me a side-eyed glance while hopping off the table.
I said out loud: “Sorry little guy. I didn’t know you slept in there.”
Quickly putting the shell back on the pottery tray I gently picked up another shell, looked inside, and inserted the light incense.
It was a still moment. Felt totally present with the little brown frog and the quiet of the morning.
In that second I realized the deepness of being in the present moment.
Sure, I practice staying grounded in the here and now and shifting out of future fear and past nostalgia but for some reason, this simple unexpected and surprising interaction caused a shift.
So of course I googled the frog animal totem meaning and had another in the now moment.
Frogs have a variety of symbols, both good and bad, but generally, they signify transformation, change, cleanse through water, fertility, and prosperity. Keep a frog totem with you always, and make sure you do not miss this spirit animal’s influence of peace, eternal beauty within, and honesty.
This line struck me “Keep a frog totem with you always, and make sure you do not miss this spirit animal’s influence of peace, eternal beauty within, and honesty.”
I felt profound peace in the one fleeting instance and know I want that over and over again. There is something magical when you’re open and can see the never-ending forever present signs of the universe.
Where do you find peace? What does peace feel like to you? How do you know when you’re in the flow of your personal peace?
What to start noticing the universal conversation? Ask! Please let me notice the signs, symbols, synchronicity and connect with my animal spirits helpers! Increase your connection energetically and ground.
I leap forward in faith!
I am peaceful and calm.
I love life and life loves me!
