The Heron Totem

Heron’s slow, deliberate manner produces a ceremonial aura and displays the harmonious natural flow of being ourselves. Heron teaches us how to become comfortable in uncertain situations where we need to watch for an opportunity to arise and quickly grasp it. It calls us to take courage and follow our true path, which will be discovered through exploring our inner selves, and finding what draws us to action.

Another timely lesson.

The bird in the top photo is a Great Blue Heron. The bird below is a Great Egret. They are both awe-inspiring, and both are significant totems. They inspire me when I do my long runs along the river, as they always remain about a quarter of a mile ahead of me, waiting for me to catch up!
