Your Power Animal for today is…Scarab Beetle
Anyone who knows me, knows my deep attachment to anything Egyptian. So this totem has come to me today. This animal was shown in one of the many favorite episodes of my favorite tv show The Twilight Zone. Queen of the Nile-http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen_of_the_Nile_(The_Twilight_Zone)
“Open the door to lives long gone.
Show me the door with the spiritual key,
The door to my past, to the lives that I lived.
My spiritual pattern I need to see.”
The Scarab is a symbol of the sun and an emblem of Egyptian god Khepera,
the god of the Sun and immortality.
Their image was placed with the mummified remains of the dead
as a source of new life in the next world.
In the Middle Ages, alchemists drew the scarab in diagrams of the double spiral,
which leads to the center of the universe.
The Scarab brings new life and vitality.
It can teach you how to pace yourself through the seasonal changes of the year.
Also, gives insight into past lives and spiritual enlightenment.
(Dung Beetle is included in this species)
