Deer - Teaches us to follow its example in #unconditionallove, #kindness & #trust. Balances the #heartchakra.

Elk gives stamina, endurance & the ability to pace oneself. It balances the solar plexus chakra.

Buffalo is associated with wisdom and abundance. It's used when we seek wisdom and guidance from the Ancient Ones. Buffalo teaches us to honor the paths of all as we walk with Spirit.

Horse takes its rider between the realms. It is the embodiment of living in balance with all realms & people. Horse teaches us that the gateways to power are compassion, caring, teaching, loving & sharing our gifts.

Moose is associated with self-esteem. It teaches us to trust ourselves to act in the moment, and to share our joy. Moose helps open the crown chakra to receive information from the divine, and to know when to share what with whom. (Currently unavailable)
