October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I felt a need for a Totem to bring to light the Healing Power of Women and their abilities within their own Intuition to bring about the Manifestation of Their Own Power From Within For Healing.
" Otter, you are the Medicine of Woman, the Realized Dream"
(Quote, The Discovery of Power through the Ways of Animals)
Whether from Sea or River, you live in the Element of Water..."Emotion"...
You speak from truth of your experience of "Life" lived on many levels....metaphorically passing through those levels as you swim ever deeper within your World of Water.
Otter At Home in your World of Water
You are playful, looking at Life Challenges, and still finding a place to see the lighter side of all experiences....it is because she represents "Balanced Energy"
...For I am Otter....I am Woman Medicine...
So often "Life" tosses us around like a leaf floating in a stream, never really sure where we are going, where we will land and what hurdles we must conquer along the way...

Otter is feminine grace..she makes her home in the Element of Water and lives on Land. She carries the Female Energy of Earth and Water...that ability to Nurture from the Emotion of her Heart...
Women are complicated Creatures with Complex Bodies. We must constantly balance our Inner World with our Outer World.
We are forever Teaching
...."Hear My Voice, Echoing in the Water's of the Universe"....
Speaking Through the Power of Otter Medicine
I Love Deeply
I give Birth
I protect my family and give my life for them
I will Hold you and Nurture you in your Pain
I will teach you what I know
I will Forgive...because I Love
I will Honour you because I have learned to Honour Me
I will Cry with you because I can
I will support you in all you do, because I want for you, what you want for you
I know who you are because it was Important to me to find out
I will laugh and play with you because I know how
I am Courage in your Hour of Need
I will go the Distance with you ...even when you have given up
I believe in you
I am Woman Medicine
I am the Healer
Like Otter, Women are curious....we want to Know and Learn "Everything Relationship"...it is in our DNA.
I believe that in many ways...we are the Keeper of the Knowledge of the ways of the Sentient Being's need to Connect.
In the Stories, Poems and Songs we write ..."Are we not always speaking or singing of our search for Love or our Love Lost?"
We reach out to connect with friends and family. We hound the men we love to go and see the doctor...we watch over those that we love and care for. We adapt in ways that others can not.
On an Intuitive Level we are able to sense and walk the way of the Esoteric
When we walk in Otter Medicine we Embrace the Fullness of our Power.
" Become Otter and move gently into the River of Life's Flow with the Water's of the Universe. This is the way of the Balanced Female Energy. In doing so you will discover the "Power of Women" (Quote, The Discovery of Power through the Ways of Animals)
Otter Totem Animal-Sue Coleman Painting
Women are Caretakers of the Soul. We Gather together, a Force to Heal. Our natural ability to Nurture is Ignited when there is a Call to Action to Heal that which is unwell within the Mental, Emotional and Physical Bodies. It is when we walk in this power that we think not of ourselves, we give unconditionally...because we can!
We are Otter...Woman Medicine
Mother and Baby
" The Beauty of a Balanced Female is that side of ourselves that creates a space for others to enter without preconceptions or suspicions . Otter teaches us that balanced female energy is not Jealous....it is Sisterhood anchored in the understanding that all accomplishments are Worthy of the Whole Tribe"...(Quote Power Through the Ways of Animals)
(It will not dis-appoint)
Do we as Women have to work on Keeping our Energy Balanced, absolutely. It is a Dance we do daily....sometimes succeeding and sometimes not. But we keep on Trying.
Confront the Dragons
Overcome the Obstacles
Understand the Risks
Go the Distance
Expect the Best
"We are Otter....Woman Medicine"
....Within Woman Medicine we Strive ....
For the Beauty of Balanced Energy without Control
For Love without Jealousy
Honouring Others for their Success as we Honour Our Own
For the Ability to Play when Life feels Hopeless
For a place within to be contented
To Know that we are all the we can Be...and it is enough
May the Beauty of my Inner World Reflect in my Outer World
As Above So Below
The Positive Collective Energy of the Power of Women flows into the Universal Stream of Consciousness to Heal the Mental, Emotional and Physical Bodies.
This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
We Are the Healers!
