Black Bear > Trust Yourself

Look at those eyes – it’s all in the eyes, a gateway to the inner essence of this remarkable animal with a curiously compassionate nature. 

Despite their name, black bears are not always black – they can be cinnamon, light brown and every pure white, like the Spirit (Kermode) Bears of the Great Bear Rain Forest. 

No matter the color, they always exude compassion, presence and self-assurance, driven by instinct and connected to the rhythm of nature. 

If a black bear has appeared for you, it is a signal that there is something greater looking out for you. 

Intellect and reason serve us well, but sometimes we need to trust our instincts and intuition.

Sometimes in life, you might need to trust what you innately know through your lived experience.

Consider asking yourself, do you truly trust your knowledge, experience and ability to let go and be guided by forces beyond rational understanding?
