The only other living, breathing, beings out there on my mountain bike ride were two HORSES (with riders) and two jumbo COYOTES with a gorgeous full coat of red rusty fur!
The coyotes were about 5 feet in front of me on the trail. We had a face-off as I approached and communicated with my body language then with words. They slowly trotted ahead on the trail, then into the bushes.
When I encounter them.
I have no fear, only exhilaration!
Coyote’s Animal Spirit message is: when a coyote Spirit animal crosses your way, you may be encouraged to not take things too seriously. Perhaps you need to lighten up or change your perspective about an issue or matter that has been on your mind for a while. There’s often wisdom in making fun of serious matters and letting go of certainties.
Call on the coyote to invigorate an appreciation of life‘s wisdom through diversity and richness.
I love this message!
I know that most people don’t like seeing a coyote because it reminds them of all their beloved animals that have been eaten by coyotes.
I understand, but I think we all need more compassion for coyotes. They are just living out their wild animal nature. They’re trying to survive out there. Clearly, the 2 coyotes I saw today were well fed. There are lots of rabbits in that canyon so I think that’s why they look so healthy and big.
Anyway, don’t forget to take the time to notice your animal spirit guides. They always have a message for us.
Check out the website Spirit Animal and I recommend reading “Animal Speak”by Ted Andrews.
One more thing, when you encounter a wild animal or a wild person, try not to exhibit fear.
Move forward in your nature and let them know that you respect them in their space and you’re just going to go on your way and they can go on their way as well.
They would rather you be in a fearful, weak state. That’s what they are looking for—the weak, the injured, the fearful.
Life wants us to trust. I trust the animals.
