A katydid (a bushcricket) appeared in my bedroom last night. I observed her taking her time to explore and follow her curiosity, with her long antennae leading her way. She even tasted my finger! Then she’d leap / fly off to another place to investigate. Like with many creature sightings, I was watchful for the teachings.
Animal spirit medicine expert Ted Andrews shares the katydid’s medicine:
Katydid teaches attunement to new vibrations and will aid in heightening intuition, sensitivity and awareness. They teach transformation in five stages as part of the molting process. Expect changes and new developments that will bring growth through reflection and patience as the sensitivity to mental, emotional and physical challenges are coming are your way. Katydids also teach the art of camouflage and the ability to evolve and use many survival techniques. Katydid will aid in strengthening senses and perceptions of the seen and unseen so whatever transformation stage you are in will be a time to be aware, mentally and spiritually sharp.
- Are you listening to your intuition to follow your rhythm?
- Is it time to shed old ideas to make way for the new?
- Are you adapting to your surroundings?
- Are you blending in or standing out?
I’m in a time of rest, anticipating a time of outreach and connection with more people. Shedding old fears of being more visible and public. Listening in for guidance from my spirit.
What does Katydid have to teach you now?
