Even if I am fond of the mystics, numerology, and enigmatic visions, this doesn’t mean that I am a living antiquity. I might be a recluse, but I am well updated with memes and other stuff. The recent ones that I came across are these classical memes, dank memes, and a particular honey badger meme, which made me burst into laughter.
Speaking of honey badger, a reader of mine shared that she had a dream with this creature. After that dream, she felt an instant but unexplainable connection to the creature. The most interesting part of this is that she has barely had interaction with this animal. While it is true that she had seen a honey badger a couple of times already, these experiences are not something bear significance.
Of course, the answer to the phenomenon is pretty simple: she has been visited by her spirit animal. And interestingly, it is in the form of a honey badger. If anyone of you feels the same thing, then read on. I will explain to you the basic concepts and premises of the honey badger spirit animal.
Honey Badger Meaning
As a spirit animal, the honey badger possesses different meanings and symbolism. Certainly, that’s not surprising anymore as people have different perceptions about the true nature of this creature. Various cultures and traditions have already shaped how we see this particular creature.
Passion and Persistence
Among the most notable symbolism of honey badgers are relentless persistence. It is a creature that symbolizes the ability of a person to pursue things that he/ she wants. People who have the honey badger totem or honey badger spirit animal rarely back down. Once they set their eyes on something, they will not stop until they can seize. This animal is the perfect being to emulate if you are seeking to achieve your goals and dreams in life.
In some cases, some see this unreal enthusiasm of honey badgers as aggression. Of course, if you want to take something, you have to be bold about it, right? I see this form of aggressiveness but not in a bad light. After all, being passive will not help you reach anything. Therefore, you need to hold such kind of determination so that you can win your race.
The appearance of the honey badger in your life is also a sign that you are currently dwelling in situations where competition is high. It makes sense for a person who is working in a highly competitive environment. Specifically, this creature is telling you to bring your A-game. It wants you to take up the challenge because you have all the assets that will make you overcome the odds.
Bravery and Power
Another aspect of honey badgers that should be looked upon is their innate power and courage. One should know that this animal, despite its size, is very capable. It has high survival instincts and can adapt to various environments and conditions. It is not afraid to venture into new territories because it is confident that it can handle any difficulty that it might encounter.
This trait of honey badgers can be emulated by humans. Those who are needing extra courage and determination should seek a badger totem. It will give them a positive flow of energy that can help them stand their ground. If you are facing abject situations in your life right now, try to possess the qualities of the honey badger. Visualize that the power that they represent will be transferred to your system. In this way, you will gain a strong mental fortitude.
But of course, the power of this creature is naturally occurring, especially to individuals that have this spirit animal. Just like the lion and tiger spirit animals, the honey badger allows a person to have an imposing command and disposition. Moreover, it allows a person to gain aptitude in leadership and influence. When you speak, everybody will listen to you. When you want to do something, those who surround you will tend to follow.
In short, the honey badger allows you to become a beacon of strength, bravery, and influence. You need to use such a gift to mold a better environment for the people you care about.
It is indeed interesting that one of the honey badger meanings is self-expression. It is a trait that is rarely possessed by any spirit animal.
So what does it mean?
Well, some people have difficulties when it comes to communicating with other people. Yes. They can talk and write, but these things don’t mean that they are already expressing themselves. Self-expression is similar to revealing yourself and all the things that are running in your head. People that are capable of doing this feat tend to excel in connecting with other people. Their ideas are often heard and taken because they are smoothly explained.
I always see self-expression as a form of a spiritual gift. Just like I said, it is not something that you can come by on a daily basis. Even if you practice how to become more fluent with your expressing your thoughts and ideas, this gift might still remain elusive.
Being visited by the honey badger or having a meaningful interaction with it proves that you have this gift. I do encourage that you hone it. After all, such a skill might be your key to reaching your dreams and goals. Since it is a naturally occurring trait of yours, you will not encounter difficulties in honing it. As it stands now, the honey badger testifies that you are a person worth listening to and following.
The honey badger is an interesting spirit animal. It might not be the biggest creature in the wild, but its implications as a spirit animal are definitely significant. People who emulate the traits of this spirit animal are often seen with great influence, command, and control. They have the power to pursue whatever they want in life. It makes the creature a desirable example for anyone who wants to succeed in this life.
