Kin Essence - Seeing the light side of dark allows for balance and harmony within
Native to Australia and New Guinea, kookaburras delight us with their distinct “laugh” call, reminding us to stop taking ourselves so seriously and look on the bright side of life. The also encourage us to use laughter as a form of healing and letting go of pain and trauma.
Kookaburra families stick together, even when young bird mature, they choose to stay with their parents to help look after their younger siblings.
In Aboriginal legends, the kookaburra’s morning chorus was the signal for the sky people to light the great fire that illuminates and warms the earth each day. We can’t help but feel a sense of amusement ourselves when we hear a chorus of Kookaburras at sunrise and sunset.
There is a saying ‘laughter is the best medicine’ and often we can feel how much this sings true. Whenever we experience hardships or serious circumstances, we intuitively feel called to find the light side to things to allow us to enter back into a more balanced state. Laughter can bring us back into harmony with ourselves, and place importance on seeing joy and seeking community to get us through. If we are feeling particularly heavy or lonely, we can listen for the Kookaburras medicine of humour to guide us through.
