Spring is in the air and chickens are on the loose! Getting ready to teach the first ever "Twisted Chickens" class at Ciel in April, and I am finding fowl feathered muses everywhere. This particular pair of chicks will be at Ciel Gallery for the month of April during the "Back to the Garden" show (in case you want to go visit them in person) along with a ton of gorgeous spring-inspired art!
So what message does the chicken bring? If a hen struts across your path, you're being asked to undertake some inner evaluation. "Scratch the surface" of your feelings to look a little deeper. Are your thoughts running around like a (you know it's coming...) chicken with its head cut off? Time to bring those renegade thoughts under control. Get heart-centered and then take a look at things again.
If the chicken is your spirit animal, you have a bold approach to life. Your courage lets you accomplish everything you set your mind on. You are inventive with your ability to use resources in new ways. You're also quite social and have an uncanny ability to seek and find the truth.
Because chickens forage on the ground, they are closely associate with earth energy and have an increased sensitivity to physical and spiritual vibrations. (Good, good, good, good vibrations!)
While researching chicken totems, I learned the chicken is the direct descendent of the Gallus, Gallus, the Wild Red Jungle Fowl of India. Now this sounds like the perfect title for another piece of chicken art. Fowl inspiration just keeps coming!
