Extinct Animal Spirits
In using fossil fuels we are connecting to
"The Spirits of the Dinosaurs"
Dodo Bird -- Growing up in near isolation and then being overrun by others. Having no enemies until you start getting noticed. Being unjustly blamed for your own problems because people say you are stupid. "The new neighbors make life impossible and we can’t get up and fly away”
Dinosaur,-- Ancient wisdom from the primordial, returning to the Earth and transformation within, "sic transit gloria mundi"
Herbivore Dinosaur -- Seeing through emotional issues
Carnivore Dinosaur -- Knows no fear, pursuit of prey
Saber Tooth Tiger -- Savage energy. Going for the throat. Facing deep primordial fear.
Thylacine (Tasmanian Wolf) -- The recently departed. (Thought to have become extinct in the 1930’s) Withdraw from the mob and walk alone for a while. Accepting and embracing the unknown. Moving between past, present and future. The secrets of rock caves
Thylacoleo (Marsupial Lion) -- Getting what you want in a straightforward manner, being unafraid to attack others to get what you need. Finding it difficult to be appreciated by others, fighting for recognition. Having the ability to crush others with your words. Forgotten power and strength.
Wooly Mammoth -- (In the legends of the arctic peoples it was believed to be a large, burrowing monster who died when it saw sunlight) The use of ancient medicines. Freezing food for much later use.
