Kin Essence – Trust in your abilities to reach greater heights
The goat is an ancient symbol of fertility, vitality, sexuality and boundless energy. The fearless spirit of the goat allows them to try and do just about anything and enhances their problem-solving abilities. When fear is not present, great freedom can be achieved. Goats are notorious for escaping man-made enclosures, thanks to their persistence, intelligence and the lack of negative self-belief that would prevent them from trying in the first place.
Goats are very coordinated, well-balanced and steady on their feet. Their grounded energy lets them move forward with confidence, ease and joy. They remind us that when we feel we can trust in our own abilities, the safer we feel when we take huge risks.
Their curious and adventurous nature leads them to climb up trees, rocks and steep hillsides, taking them to places that few other animals choose to travel. The goat reminds us to rise above drama, fear and negativity to gain a higher perspective.
Goats are incredibly adaptable and are very open and receptive to change. When we connect with the earth with our feet, we are automatically grounded and brought back into our bodies and out from our heads. This is one of the most important (yet easy and commonly practiced!) spiritual practices and for good reason – when we maintain our connection with the earth and the ground, we are clear-minded and able to make stronger more gut-orientated decisions. Stay in touch with the source and wait for the clarity!
