Kin Essence - Draw from within to maximise external influence and shift of perception
Chameleons are unique and curious creatures. With their independently mobile eyes they can achieve full 360-degree vision, keeping track of everything happening around them without moving or exerting much energy. Their feet are a distinct shape, allowing them to have a firm grip on the branches they feed and live on. Chameleons also have a highly evolved tongue that extrudes long distances so that they can capture insects with ease while preserving energy.
The chameleon guides us to use our energy and internal resources wisely to prevent wastage, depletion and openness to threats. They show us the importance of energy balance and protection and knowing the right times to retreat and then when to emerge.
Chameleons are most well known for their iconic, colourful bodies and ability to change colour to suit their needs. A chameleon will use a colour change to communicate and send signals to other chameleons and well as to camouflage into its environment to avoid detection from predators. We can see how powerful this gift is in that they really can draw from their energy sources within to affect not only how they physically appear, but also how others then react to that. They teach us that we have such a great energy body too, which we should draw from in order to achieve desired outcomes within our environment and those we encounter.
