Essence of Porcupine teaches the path around the chaos of fear, greed, and suffering.
Porcupine awakens inner freedom from guilt and shame by teaching you to reclaim your child’s innocence. It opens your heart to things that gave you joy as a child. It awakens an inner knowingness of who you are and the ability to trust that it is safe to be who you are. It also awakens faith and trust and the knowing that you can move mountains with these powers. This essence teaches you to notice when others’ opinions could prevent you from exploring activities that could otherwise be fun and enjoyable. It motivates you to make time for recreational activities that bring you joy. It balances your tendencies to be overly sensitive to others’ prickly words and/or actions. It also reflects self awareness of when your barbs are inappropriate and/or take joy from others. Porcupine is a salve for past painful thorns. It removes old spikes by teaching you to let go completely from the person who has harmed you. It teaches you to reach for compassion in your heart rather than sticking it to people because you are hurting. It also teaches you to show strength through vulnerability, thereby breeding more trust and honesty. Porcupine Essence protects all around you.
