MEANING: Builder, Completion, Alternatives

Native American Beaver Animal Medicine

Beaver People are learning to look for alternative solutions so that they can complete the projects that they have already started. Beaver's are builders and action-oriented animals; therefore, Beaver is inspiring you to complete your work. Beaver also serves as a reminder that there are many ways to escape as they have prepared many underwater channels with which to move or escape.

There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God IS faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. 1 Corinthians 10:13

When Beaver Medicine grabs your attention it is asking you to use your natural resources to create and build. You may have the idea that there is only one solution to your problem. Beaver seeks to show you that there are many ways to build and escape so that you'll never find yourself trapped or cornered.

A Beaver lodge has an underwater entrance with many channels. They use their natural resources such as severed branches, mud, logs and leaves to create their lodge. Ponds are created by the well-maintained dams which serve to isolate the beavers' lodge. Because of the underwater entrance, this makes it nearly impossible for any other animal to gain access. They are very clever when using their natural resources and they use everything in their immediate environment to create their perfect environment.

Have you been using all the resources available to you?

Beaver builds dams so that they can have easy access to food during the winter and also to protect them against predators. They think of everything! Beaver's are stimulated to build by the sound of water in motion; therefore, you must remain in motion to complete your projects. Beaver's will continue to build their dam higher and higher so long as they hear the sound of water. There has even been research done where water sound recordings were placed in the vicinity of a Beaver and the Beaver continued to build even when there was an absence of water. They hear the water and react.

What do you hear?

Beaver's message is about seeking alternatives to your challenges in Life. There is more than one way to drive to the grocery store. And there is always more than one way of escape; in fact, Beaver teaches you that there are many alternatives by way of channels. A Beaver can reach another waterway through one of his many channels. Beaver refuses to be cornered, caught off guard or trapped. Opening the channels in your Life will serve as a bridge to your solutions.

You can get rid of a dam, but you will never be able to get rid of the Beaver.
