Master Flamingo Animal Medicine to find your balance by letting go of the past and only residing in the present.
With Flamingo Animal Medicine balance comes easy. Flamingos are known for standing strong on one tiny, spindly leg. One foot in the present and one foot is not quite in the past and not quite in the future. The importance of being fully present in your life at this exact moment and all the moments to come is what Flamingo is pointing out.
Flamingo invites us to let go of the past because if you spend too much time in the past, your life resides in the past.
Flamingo Animal Medicine also invites us to let go of our (futile) desire to control the future. It is not ours in the present moment. All we really have is now—now is where the magic is happening!
While it is absolutely critical to plan for the future, you need to leave room for spirit to dance and make things even better than you hoped. If you get too fixed on specific outcomes, not only will you be disappointed if they're not what you want, but you'll be shutting off the magical possibilities that the Universe can deliver if you give it space.
Flamingo Animal Medicine also means your creativity is rising, so pay attention to the present moment so you don't miss an opportunity. Work to keep your mind, body, and spirit balanced and gather up as much information as possible in the present because it will assist you when you get where you are going.
You can trust this moment. Enjoy the in-between time. It is golden.
