Weasel Animal Medicine: Stealth
Weasel has an acute sense of hearing and the ability to see beneath the surface. As a power animal, Weasel helps you to develop your inner hearing so that you can listen to your inner voice, and to heighten your perception so you can see beneath the words and actions of others and ascertain their true motives and intentions.
Weasel is help in determining the reasons why something may not be obvious. So ask Weasel for help in those areas of life which are confusing and worrying, and ask for answers to why you feel as you do about a particular situation. Look beneath the surface.
Weasel has an incredible amount of energy and ingenuity, yet it is a difficult power totem to have. It is not without significance that royalty wears ermine or weasel pelt. Weasel ears hear what is really being said. This is a great ability. Weasel eyes see beneath the surface of a situation to know the many ramifications of an event. This too is a rare gift.
The chiefs sent Weasel to the enemy camp to smoke them for power. “What are the medicines of the enemy?” the chiefs asked Weasel upon its return. Weasel never failed to give an accurate account of the enemy’s numbers, strengths, and weaknesses. It was Weasel who tearfully told the Original People of the coming of the white boat people. “These brothers have strange new medicines,” said Weasel. “They will tell us that to live the way we do is wrong. They will confide us with their talking bark. They have stolen thunder from Sky Father and placed it in their weapons. They have no respect for the animal brothers and sisters, and they make their thunder speak to the animals and kill them. They will make the thunder speak to us also. Their numbers are too many to count, and these white brothers will steal everything from us but our spirits. The great dark shadow of the ravenous bird of death has fallen over the People.”
Weasel fur changes color with the season. Silent Weasel has many lessons to teach you. Weasel could confound Great Spirit, pick Great Spirit’s pockets, and then leave Great Spirit contemplating the divine navel. If this is your personal medicine, your powers of observation are keen. You seem to be saying, “Leave me alone and I will do the same for you.” You might even look a bit guilty at times due to what you know from observing life. You may be a loner hiding you away from others, or perhaps even a recluse. You are a powerful ally to have in any business organization since you can see what the competition is doing. People may make a great mistake in sizing you up since they do not immediately see your powers. But the first time they try to outsmart you, they will soon learn that your intelligence is greater than their own.
Look to Weasel power to tell you the “hidden reasons” behind anything. Some people are put off by Weasel medicine, talent, and abilities, but they are not bad medicines. We all have power, or we would not be here to heal Mother Earth. Perhaps if you have Weasel power you could use your secret gifts for the good of all. Observe who, or what needs attention, or a solution, and offer your assistance in your own quiet or discreet way.
Be the detective. Honor what you find. The truth is out there.« Back to Glossary Index
