Frogs reside near and in water and feed on mostly aquatic animals and insects. They are nocturnal, hiding to keep cool during the day and come out in the early evening to call and hunt. Frogs have strong hind legs that propel them forward in large jumping motion which helps them to escape from prey. True masters of disguise, frogs are well camouflaged in their home environments and can often be mistaken for leaves and rocks.
Frogs need a moist environment to thrive, Their skin exudes a special moisture solution to prevent evaporation in dry areas. The resourceful frog also makes use of rain and dew to keep from drying out, meaning that it can wander further from its water source without fear. Their unique skin is often vulnerable and toxic, a sign of how volatile often our natural state can be and of how often we must nurture it with emotional healing practices.
The frog is linked to lunar and yin energies - a symbol of healing and good fortune. Frogs have long been symbols for healing, inner transformation and the restoration of physical health. They teach us to harness the healing energies of water to rejuvenate our bodies, minds and souls and to allow us to truly feel into our experiences and to feel our feelings, fully, deeply and with maximum impact.
Their deep croak and calls uniquely enable use to draw parallels on how we each like to find individual ways of expressing ourselves emotionally, and that those who match our song are our chosen support team in our healing processes. Call on your tribe to get you through these highly sensitive times and allow them to hold space for your healing to occur.
