Spirit of the Bear – Empowering Wellness!

Hello and welcome!  I’m so glad you’re here.

You, my friend, have gifts that the world needs – gifts that no one else can ever give.  I know that you’re the only person who will ever be able to make the specific contributions that you were put here to make.  And that’s why I believe that if we want to make an impact in the world, then the most important change we can start with right now is to be as healthy and strong as possible.

Imagine for a moment what it would be like if you felt physically and emotionally fantastic.  What would be different in your life and the lives of those close to you?   What new options and possibilities would be available?  How vibrant and amazing would you look?  How would it improve your productivity?  What would you do that you haven’t been able to do before?   Whose lives would be changed for the better because of all that you could give?  When we take care of ourselves, the world is always a better place because of it!

I became a holistic wellness professional because I had to bravely choose to become strong and healthy myself.  And through those experiences, I found my gifts and my passion – helping others become the person they most want to be by optimizing their physical and emotional well-being.   I get to work with people one-on-one to help them save money and time and build their health most effectively by taking the guesswork out of trying to figure out which herbs, nutritional supplements, diet, and lifestyle changes can best support their needs and goals.  And let me tell you, that feels amazing!  You can learn more about my story, my background, and my education on my About page.

The Meaning of Spirit of the Bear

 

When I studied to become a master herbalist, I learned that many Native cultures around the world view the Bear as the healer, often calling herbal medicine and healing traditions “Bear Medicine.”  I’ve always loved spirit animals, so of course the idea of bears being the spirit animals of herbalism really appealed to me!

There’s a lot of symbolism attributed to bears, especially as an animal in touch with the earth and the cycles of nature and as an animal that can provide inspiration and support in times of difficulty or physical and emotional healing.

The bear reminds us, too, that we can be larger than life and raise ourselves up to our inherent status.  Who doesn’t need that when you’re working on being strong and healthy and changing the world!

Here’s some more qualities that bears as a spirit animal symbolize:

  • Strength, Courage, Confidence
  • Strong grounding forces
  • Standing against adversity, standing for your beliefs and truth
  • Taking action and leadership, for your needs or others
  • Setting clear boundaries, standing your ground
  • Nurturing and protecting your children and your ideals
  • Introspection and intuition blended with instinct
  • Embracing the importance of “cave time” with quiet, solitude, and rest
  • Making time to take care of your own needs
  • Finding balance and comfort in solitude
  • Resurrection: the cold, dark seasons giving way to rebirth and new beginnings

They symbolism of polar bears can be especially meaningful for those who need to keep their spirits strong during difficulties and struggles.   The polar bear accepts life in a harsh, wintry world and through tenacity and perseverance has become the master of the winter lands, adapting and overcoming.

And the fireweed seen in these pictures with the polar bears is a symbol for healing, too, representing a phoenix quality –  the ability to rise from the ashes and bloom!  Seen often in Wyoming and surrounding areas, fireweed is almost always one of the first plants to grow in areas where wildfires have burned.

I love these images of playful polar bears in fireweed, and for me they bring to mind an English Proverb, “No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.”

The name “Spirit of the Bear” is something deeply special and meaningful to me, and I hope it inspires you, too.
