Spirit animals carry meaning, wisdom, and spiritual power. The ancient people and the Natives have always believed that animals are spirit messengers. They come through either as physical forms, signs, or etheric manifestations. They serve as sacred messengers that come to you to, sort of, spark your consiousness, or heed a warning or premonition.
On July 7th, 2013, I was in the kitchen of my house preparing a Paella (Latin seafood dish), and my husband’s lunch, as he was heading out to work. As he was gathering all his things, I mentioned to him how I had all the fish I needed for the Paella, except for the crab. I was hosting a meditation gathering around 10 a.m. that morning, and was trying to have lunch ready before everyone arrived. As he was walking towards the front door, my husband says, “It’s okay, it’ll taste just as good without the crab.” Suddenly, I hear him open the door and slam it right shut again! He says, “Babe, I found your missing crab right here!” I couldn’t believe my eyes! Right in front of my doorstep was a huge land crab. The crab seemed to stop and stare at me, almost as if he was letting me know that his visit, was for me.
The crab then, ran into the driveway, underneath my car. It made it’s way up the inner part of my front, right tire. I couldn’t stop saying how incredibly crazy this was! I mean, how in the world would a huge land crab just walk up to my from door, after I had just said I was missing the crab in my Paella. Truth is, it was a relief for me to see that crab there.
Earlier that week, I had an appointment to have my yearly mammogram done. I was told that there was a dark area on my left breast that resembled cancer, therefore, they needed to run more tests. You see, this crab came to reveal to me that all was okay. The fact that the crab was missing from the Paella dish and was at my doorstep, means that the cancer was not in my breast, and it was all a scare. The crab symbolizes what’s most precious to you. It is the quintessential symbol of self protection, bounderies, and also teaching others how to treat you.
These are just a few of the beautiful ways life communicates with us. Every living thing and creature has a soul purpose, or mission. I believe we are all here to show forth our love and compassion for one another. Open up your mind and soul to these soul messengers and allow their spirit to, not only guide you, but comfort you when you need it most.
