HERON, EGRET

 

Aggressive Self-Determination
Self-Reliance

A Heron and Egret totem teaches balance;
the ability to progress and evolve --
to walk into deeper waters without fear.

It is important for someone with a Heron and Egret
totem to learn to stand on their own two feet,
to become independent and self-reliant.

 

Heron and Egret has a strong connection to the element of Earth
and you must also be aware and cultivate this connection. 
The Mother Earth is a source of strength
and will help you stand strong and firm.

Heron medicine allows you to perform many tasks at the same time,
keeping all in balance.
If one way doesn't work, then another way will.
Heron and Egret people seem to instinctively know this.

Heron people do not need a lot of people in their life
and they are often follow non-traditional roles.
They feel no need to "keep up with the Jones." 
They stand out in their uniqueness
and know how to take advantage of things
and events that most people wouldn't bother with.

You know what is best for you and you should follow that path.
Be aggressive when opportunities present themselves --
don't let them get away from you.

Meditation on color will provide insight to Heron and Egret people.
