I love the summer because it gives me a chance to beautify my deck, and feed the insect and hummingbird populations with my numerous potted, flowering plants and vegetables. So a few weeks back I was elated when one of my geraniums became the home of a wren nest.
Wrens are birds that are bold yet resourceful. In some traditions it is believed that the wren actually stole fire from the Gods. Being adaptable it will build it’s nest in any convenient place, and to scare off predators they are known to build several dummy nests as well.
The Wren totem’s boldness and confidence comes through in their loud song, as well as, confronting larger birds or animals that come into their territory.
So if the Wren totem has come into your life, some good questions to reflect upon are whether you are using your resources wisely, or if you walk through life with enough confidence. Are you forgetting to sing your song to the world? Take a tip from our brother and sister Wren, and learn how to work with their medicine by using what is available in life to fulfill your needs.
