Heirophant – White Crane – A wading bird that moves between the realms of earth and sky, land and water. She teaches that the movement between the realms can help us learn to navigate and draw upon our intrinsic waters and intuitiveness, awakening our senses to new spiritual growth. The White Crane is an ancient sun symbol and the herald of death. She teaches that life and death are part of the same process; you must release one to begin another, one cycle ends to allow the next to begin. She births two young but will usually one raise one, teaching us that what you give birth to and focus on will have a long and prosperous life.
Are you applying the proper focus to yourself or project? Or are your energies scattered? Are you protecting your desires and goals? Or have they gotten lost or been pushed away? The White Crane shows us that we can be too rigid in our beliefs and traditions but that we can learn to stand on our own allowing positive new ones to emerge and grow. Listening to the White Crane’s slow and steady rhythm and observing her movements we can move between the worlds and flow smoothly in the waters of our lives and succeed in our endeavors.
