Strength, Bears, and Pastels Drawings.

I have long known that one of my Power Animals is that of the Bear.

Bears to me a special and it breaks my heart to see them hunted..

Below are two Bears I drew in Pastels, Both were given as presents to those I love as Birthdays Presents. 

For those who are interested in Animal Totems, here are a few things about The Bear that you may like to know. Some of their Traits are…

Brown Bear

Polar Bear

Did you know that the Polar Bear’s hairs are hollow transparent tubes? and that is why the bears are white. Each hair acts like a solar heater, transmitting the weak sunlight directly to the skin.  Polar Bears are increasingly becoming under threat.. especially as global warming is melting the ice-caps To find out more click onto WWF Polar Bears

I hope you enjoyed viewing the Bears as much as I did creating them.

And to finish here are a wonderful couple of Quotes

~~~~

"When all the dangerous cliffs are fenced off, all the trees that might fall on people are cut down, all of the insects that bite have been poisoned … and all of the grizzlies are dead because they are occasionally dangerous, the wilderness will not be made safe. Rather, the safety will have destroyed the wilderness."


– R. Yorke Edwards (Canadian environmentalist)

~~~~

"The fate of bears in many areas of the world will be decided in the next 10-20 years. The future of several species is in serious doubt. The elimination of bears from 50-75% of their historic range has already occurred and the remaining range will decrease unless serious efforts are focused on bear conservation."


– Dr. Chris Servheen, biologist (1990 Report on the Status of Bears)

Wolf ~Pastels ~Power Animals.

 

Wolf 3

As you can see my pastel box has been out again. And this week I drew this Wolf..

Wolves have always fascinated me and it saddens me that they get such bad press. 

In Europe the wolf can still be found in the mountainous regions of the Pyrenees, the Alps, Poland, Russia, and Scandinavia  The Wolf was virtually wiped out in Western Europe by the end of the 19th Century and like its American brother it avoids Man. And I can’t say I blame him..

Recently there has been a movement to reintroduce the wolf to remote areas of Scotland and England, although there is still a lot of protests by Farmers.

I have had one or two images of the Wolf recently drop into my meditations.. so I have been reading up on its attributes as a Power Animal.. For when Wolf appears he/she has a message for me..

Click Here for some Attributes. If Wolf is your Power Animal 

There are some wonderful Legends and Traditions associated with the Wolf.. The Shoshone believed that after death the human spirit went to the land of Coyote who along with wolf created the world. Wolf guarded the path walked by the dead. Wolf would awaken and  wash the human soul in the river, thereby making it sacred, and then the newly cleansed spirit gained entry into the promised land..  Elsewhere in North western America Wolf was linked with Raven, especially those tribes who credited Raven with the origin of the Universe. So wolf is inextricably bound with the creation story.

The Wolf as a teacher was so integral an idea to the Native Americans that in sign language which was used across the Plains, and the Mississippi Valley which spread into the Rockies- The Hand position for Medicine( power) was nearly identical to that of the sign for Wolf. 

The Plains Tribes invested much in the wisdom of the Wolf. The Pawnee were one of the most feared tribes upon the plains and the sign for  Pawnee was also ‘Wolf.’ 

The Lakota based much of the male society on the wolf, just as the female society was constructed on the model of the Buffalo.

The holy-man with wolf medicine would lead the men in a wolf-like howl prior to battle, for it was thought this would instill in them the wolf’s fighting spirit .

Wolves love to howl, they do this for several reasons, to contact each other, to announce their presence and boundaries of their territory, and for the sheer joy of doing so..

Wolf ‘Song’ has often been equated with Whale Song as maintaining the history of the Universe..

To me Wolves are not savage but family oriented, who live, work, hunt and play in a spirit of co-operation…

We could all learn much from the Wolf.. 

I hope you enjoyed my own Howl tonight…

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
