Ants are amazing creatures. I am in totally in awe of their strength, versatility, focus, determination, resilience and singlemindedness. What they accomplish for the colony is no small feat. The lessons they teach us in being part of a tribe are undeniable.
Other than the queen, there is no one ant that stands out. Ants live in complex social hierarchal communities. Whether they are drones, workers or soldiers. Each ant has a specific task to complete for the support and the continuation of the tribe.
Ants work together in unison as part of the colony. They move as one, in a single endeavour. We can learn a great deal from our ant brothers and sisters. I love watching their busyness and their uniformity when completing a task or ‘marching’ and following each other in a line.
Ants are little warriors.
Think now about primal man and woman. In ancient times men and women of the same tribe, worked together, for the betterment and survival of the tribe. Many of us have forgotten this community based, belief system.
From a young age we are taught to stand as one. Think how strong we would be as a community of like-minded individuals, if we stood with others.
I encourage individuality, standing out from the crowd, being authentically you with no apology, speaking your truth, being the real you. However, sometimes we are lost striving for our individuality, our own identity, that we tend to fall into comparison with others whether it be in business or in our personal relationships. Do you agree?
We can learn a lot from this little warrior.
Find your tribe, march as one and choose to stand out from the crowd when it aligns with your authentic truth. Trust spirit.
Differentiate between the ego part of self that does not serve you, the one that surfaces through insecurity, I’m not good enough or not worthy. The one that is loud and opinionated not because it aligns with your truth; it hides that part of self that is emotionally vulnerable and in pain.
As a Shaman I work with a number of people disrupting their patterns and assisting them in reconnecting back to their truth.
Look deep within when choosing your path.
