Perch Advantageously

Over 52 weeks I will be learning all about how to live and work creatively. My teachers are Aussie birds and animals. It is week five and the creative force has produced the Pelican to build on the lessons that Australian birds, animals and habitat are initiating.

The elegant pelican animal totem is definitely an opportunist with style and finesse. In the wild, these large-billed birds perch themselves in the most advantageous position before swooping in to catch their prey. They wait patiently and focus intently, striking at the most perfect moment.

Pelican spirit guides float into our awareness to encourage us to do the same. In order to experience the benefits of opportunities, we must be proactive. We cannot just sit idly and wait for things to come our way all of the time. Each of us needs to get out there and place ourselves in circumstances that will yield benefits. Put yourself in a position that will enable you to utilize skills and resources.

In addition to resourcefulness, the pelican spiritual totem commonly symbolizes social responsibility and active attributes, such as social, teamwork, charity, generosity and friendliness. This is because these birds are highly social and reliant upon their groups. Hunting is a group effort, in which many members of the flock work together to gain abundance. Pelicans encourage us to develop friendly, caring, and supportive relationships with members of our own communities, as well.

Are you intent upon a goal, or some treasure you desire? Do like the pelican does. Perch yourself in an advantageous position, and observe the resources that come your way.

  1. I like the ideas in this post. I’m placing myself in the way of opportunity today as I’m driving down to Ocean Grove to look at a rental property this afternoon. 🙂

    1. Perfect! Ocean Grove is lovely! Another option to consider is St Leonards, Indented Head etc! We have just come back from 4 nights there! It has the main services and is within easy reach of everything!

      1. Hi Heather, back home again now after discovering Ocean Grove rental was not right for me. I agree St Leonards and Indented Head are lovely. Every time I go to my daughter’s down that was I end up thinking I want to live to in that particular area. Finding a rental is hard though.

      2. Yes! I can imagine that it is made more difficult by the fact that people can earn good rates renting to the hoardes who regularly go down there for weekends etc! Things were very heavily booked over the holiday period!

      3. Yes Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads were incredibly busy even this morning when I drove through. Aargh – the world is too frantic for me sometimes these days!
