“Forest Archangel”There is a word that sums up the Spiritual Energy of a Moose…
———— “IMPOSING” ————Dignified and Monumental, the Moose stands some seven feet tall and weighs well over a half a ton!Moose Energy offers you courage to face a difficult situation, perhaps even a fight you’d rather avoid.Moose are very compassionate animals. They care deeply for their family and friends, and would do anything to protect them. You are a loyal friend, and would do anything to help those you care about.Moose bring out a compelling amount of dynamic feminine energies.Even without antlers, the female Moose is capable and intimidating.If their young are threatened, the Cow becomes a Fierce Protector of her calves, Symbolizing Family and the safety of those you hold dear.The Moose embodies power, courage, speed, agility and grace.It represents adaptation, energy, strength, and movement, as well as, being a symbol of independence, self-esteem, and wisdom.The Moose’s antlers are large, resemble a satellite dish, and are ultra sensitive.
So, the Moose’s advice is to keep your inner satellite tuned to vibrations all around you.Don’t ignore your gut instincts or the spiritual impressions you pick up.With Moose comes a balance between your power and your soft side.Moose is the ideal Power Animal when you want to take a breather alone.Moose like solitude. There are phases in everyone’s life when they need rest but may feel guilty when taking a break.Moose says, Just do it!Try going solo for a day or even a week until your thoughts settle.Another time to work with Moose Energy is when you are trying to protect those you love. You feel small and weak, but Moose is anything but fragile.Moose Energy inspires defiance and standing your ground.You will grow three feet taller working with the Moose’s energetic signature.Moose symbolism is letting you know that you – and only you – have the authority to make your choices in life.Therefore, the Moose meaning insists that you do not need to feel ashamed or pressured in any way by your friends and peers.It is safe for you to make choices that are different from theirs.Moose character teaches you to stand loud and proud and own who you are!In other words, your individuality is your strength.They are fearless and tenacious, and once they have a goal they will stop at nothing until that goal is reached.This type of behavior is most evident when a female responds to the Bull’s mating call. They will make a beeline for their potential mate, and whatever stands between the two would feel the rushing antlers of this powerful beast!These Mantua are a reminder to take some time to reflect on your life, connect with your inner wisdom, stay grounded and focused on your goals.Like Mantua, you are an unstoppable force.And while you may sometimes find yourself feeling alone in the world, you always remember that you are part of something much larger –Something Wild and Wonderful!So Embrace your Inner Moose!Remember that you are Always Connected to Something Greater than Yourself…- Remember -Angels are Among us…
