Mouse Medicine



The past couple tipsandtricks days I've thought of looking up mice in Animal Speak, now that they're not keeping me up at night, I'm more open to learning from them.  My voice teacher said she remembered mouse medicine is about "details." "Details?" I asked, "I'm pretty good at details." We talked about one time when all of the pencils at her studio had worn out erasers and I brought her some new ones. "Well if you're good at details, maybe you're too good a details," she said. I guess just like tarot cards, animal totems can be read reversed to indicate their opposite.

Animal Speak says "When mouse shows up at a totem, it is either time to pay attention to details or an indication that you cannot see the forest for the trees. You may be getting so locked into details that you forget the big picture. Ask yourself some important questions. Are you taking care of the trivial but necessary things in life? Are you getting so lost in big dreams that you are neglecting other aspects of your life? Are you becoming so focused on one or two activities that you are neglecting to see other opportunities? Are you missing what is right in front of you? Is there something obvious you are missing or need to focus on? Are you trying to do too many things at once and thereby scattering your energies? Mouse medicine can show you how to attain big things by working on little things. Whenever mouse shows up there are lessons associated with attention."

Yep, I'm not really your big picture gal. I even have two big picture things I want to do and I keep putting off focusing on them because of the little stuff I do every day, like cleaning up mouse poop, making a playlist and promoting my upcoming workshop. I've always liked the expression "can't see the forest for the trees," and luckily I live in a place with lots of forests, so I can practice seeing them.
