  1. Thank you for this mind-opening explanation, the only missing bit for is that two wild geese arrived at my door, shouting and yelling at me to let them in for a solid 45 minutes.

    While 2 days prior a white goose, flew into my pool and swam and played in the water for approximately 30 minutes and then left.

    Finally, I thanked them and told them I receive their message with an open heart and after a while of that conversation they left.

    Now, the same 2 wild geese keep hanging around my roof.

    So, what does a visit from them mean?


    1. The symbolism is related to what is going on in your life. How does the article relate to what is happening in your life and how will it inspire you, that is the question and you are the best person to answer that question. Thank you for your comment.

  2. I had something happen today that I just couldn’t quite make sense of, so figured I would see if it made sense to anyone on here. Today I was driving in a new area that I had never been to, but it felt like home. Many BIG life changes have been brought up to me lately, and I’m feeling called to follow but not sure which path to take. But as I was driving, I came upon this area and I felt like all the stars were aligning and I was finding the place I was meant to be in. Then I was drawn to a road along a narrow lake, and as I was rounding the corner, a flock of geese started walking across the road towards the side with the water. I slowed down well before I got to them, but I watched them immediately start approaching my car. So much so that a woman in a car driving from the opposite direction pulled over and rolled down her windows to say to me, “well looks like you have some friends! They ran directly towards you!” I didn’t know what to make of it, and then I could hear them honking alongside my car, as if they were surrounding my passenger side, but I couldn’t physically see them. I got out of the car and sure enough, they were all standing right up against the passenger door. Once they saw me, they started walking toward me aggressively. One appeared as though he was trying to peck at my shins/feet and almost started to, but I walked away and stood up on a tall rock bench beside the road. They then walked towards the rock, and started looking me over. There were two brown geese, two white geese, and one mixed baby goose. I took out my camera to take a picture of them. After a few seconds, the geese then proceeded to walk towards the water and not acknowledge me again. I even called to them but they didn’t look back in my direction again.

    One further thing I feel I should note. My birth totem animal is a goose.

    I honestly don’t know what to make of it. Anyone have any thoughts?

    1. What were you feeling during the experience? It was good that you followed your intuition, there is a message there for you, it comes from what you were feeling and thinking in the moment. You are your own best guide? What were you thinking, feeling, seeing, how does it relate to what you read about the totem. That is your message.

  3. Woooow, thank You so much!!
