ANIMAL MESSAGE: I Develop
SYMBOLIC: Because crocodiles are associated with water, we are talking about seeing clearly into emotional worlds. These creatures ask us to dive into our emotions and seek fluidity, healing and cleansing in these realms. Crocodiles also ask us to utilize our dreams for emotional understanding. Call upon these creatures when you’re in a crunch emotionally, or are unclear about how to heal yourself, or if you are having disturbing dreams. These creatures are fearless, and their energy is extremely forthright. They strike clarity into our lives when we call on them. Moreover, these creatures represent an equal balance between earth and water. With their help, we too can become grounded, and settled in our emotions.
Let us consider the rough, bony covering of the crocodile. It is armor and can deflect bullets; however, his underside belly is soft. This speaks to us of duality and balance: the rigid and the vulnerable, the push and the pull, the mighty and the meek, the obvious and the hidden.
Crocodile behavior bears heavily on the implications of this animal totem. They are precision in motion. They remain hidden, poised, and held in a show of ultimate control. They waste no movement. Once they have seized their prey, they will roll under water, hiding their catch under a log. This speaks of preparation, “stewing.” Crocodiles are timing personified. We would do well to learn from them to make our choices wisely and, once made, allow them to take their course.
