Sheep Spirit Animal

People with sheep totem are natural wanderers. Unfortunately they can lose their way easily. Sheep folks tend not to pay attention to the natural flow. It is important for Sheep to look for leadership and to stay with the herd. Did Little Bo Beep lose her sheep? Or did the sheep wander off on her own? Who is the more responsible party after all? Ask yourself if you have lost your way. When sheep totem appears it may be time for you to stop wandering and to seek a mentor to help you find your way. After you have found your way, in time, it will be your honor that will help others who have lost their way too.

One lesson Sheep offers is, if you are wishing to move past actions or choices that you have made, Sheep can support you to do this. A sheep’s coat is sheared away and it is later cleaned and spun into clothing which offers warmth to others. You too can shed the past, learn from your experiences and begin anew. Sheep medicine teaches that all experiences have value. You can use your mistakes as teaching tools to assist others as well by offering a helping hand or hoof.

A common phrase “quiet as a lamb” is often used in association with a sleeping baby. Sheep medicine grooms a teacher, lamb medicine teaches us to be quiet, listen, and to reserve our energies.

Spirit Sheep

In fields you walk with cloven wanderlust
With blankets carried on your back as fleece
Protecting fellow sheep-fold innocence
From devious behavior in the flock
Smiling as you bleat and stride as golden
Reflecting rays like sunlit drops of milk

A lamb of God your knowledge is your milk
Your curiosity breathes wanderlust
A message from the ancient one baas golden
Engraved upon your heart and curls of fleece
Observe the blessed range within your flock
Stray not for you may lose your innocence

A fog in hills may blind your innocence
Beware the wolf will take more than your milk
And with each day you bond among your flock
Behold the beauty of group wanderlust
We thank you for your warm and cherished fleece
That soothes us as earth’s twilight breaks golden

Glory to the impossible golden
For myths of your spiritual innocence
Merely trumpets what liberates your fleece
The holy grail is your chalice of milk
Discovered in a cave of wanderlust
Restful within the shadow of your flock

What joy is raised in stables of your flock
An offering of ritual golden
Pasture of thirsty hearts in wanderlust
You teach us to hold fast to innocence
How precious is the richness of your milk
Our comfort is to rest our heads on fleece

A new dawn to behold an age of fleece
A new dusk to protect an ancient flock
A new day to preserve the gift of milk
A new memory to hold futures golden
A never ending age of innocence
A satiated age of wanderlust

Fruitful wanderlust of black sage fleece
Shepherds innocence to a white cloaked flock
Prepare ye golden moments with thine milk
