Botswana Agate | Bear Pendant
The Botswana Agate Bear Pendant measures 3/8 inches high.
Bear Spirit asks you to listen to your inner voice. Inner potentials are awakening. Trust your own unique rhythms not those of others. This will bring the honey you seek. Bear brings protection from the North, the spirit of Nature, awakening the unconscious. The seven stars of Ursus Major, The Great Bear, make up the most easily recognized constellation in the night sky – The Big Dipper. Bear is also associated with the goddess Diana, lunar goddess of Earth’s moon.
Bear does not truly hibernate as many believe. They live for the winter on stored fat. The depth of their sleep depends on the amount of fat stored. The bear spirit teaches you to tap into internal resources, even if those stores have not been accessible to you before. When Bear calls you it is important not to hide away and try to hibernate or sleep year round. There is a time to seek inner stores and a time to come out of the den and walk on two feet.
This is reflected in how Mama Bear births – two or three cubs are born while Mama Bear is deep in a hibernating state. They are nursed in the dark and then cubs and Mama Bear emerge together in the Spring. Fierce Mama Bear energy protects her cubs for up to two years. Ask Mama Bear for help when you are birthing a new project or dream in the dark, or when it’s time to defend your young with strength and ferocity.
