Could nature have messages for women at menopause?

I walked barefoot into my backyard the morning after I returned from 2 1/2 weeks in California. My purpose was to avoid jet lag by connecting with the earth’s electricity to help my body adjust after a five-hour flight east. It works!

The first thing I saw was my enormous purple butterfly bush pushing the boundaries of its space – exploding with color even now in late August. Monarch butterflies were hanging from flower clusters as they dipped their long skinny black tongues into the center of each individual flower. Two hummingbirds hovered over the top of the bush, making quick, small dives into the center of each flower. I was just about to go back onto the cedar deck when I turned around and saw the bunny that showed up this spring as a baby and was now almost fully grown. She has always allowed me to get within 5 feet of her and I have enjoyed talking softly to her, telling her how beautiful she is.

Butterflies, hummingbirds and cottontail rabbits – how can they help a woman going through menopause?

Spiritual healer Ted Andrews is the author of a fascinating book called ‘Animal Speak’, about the spiritual and magical powers of animals, birds and insects and the messages they have for humans. Many societies believe that spirit guides often use animals or animal imagery to communicate their purpose and roles to humans. Based on each animal’s life cycle, traits and purpose in nature Andrews presents messages for humans to consider when they encounter their totem animals, which are creatures whose energy you feel closely associated with during your life.

Animals can help us recognize our own innate abilities. They empower and protect us and their energies can be used to help heal, inspire and grow – an important aspect of menopause!

In my next blog, I’ll tell you how Andrews’ interprets my backyard ‘Disney movie’ of rabbits, butterflies and hummingbirds, and the messages they may have for me – and you.
