Additional Associations for Badger:


  • I’m very fond of Badger, Tsisheró:hen for her courage and massive heart. I once watched a Badger face off a black bear over some food in a garbage dumb. The bear tried to get in again and again and eventually got chased away by the much smaller badger. Tsisheró:hen speaks to to the true Warrior in each us. Not she who wins every fight or cares about winning at all, but she who will not surrender, who will get back up no matter how often she is knocked down, she who can be fierce when she needs to be fierce. Badger digs down deep in the earth, into the dark places where the roots of all things live and makes her home there. She is far larger than her body. There is a Warrior, there is Tsisheró:hen in each and every one of us. She may seem ttoo small to matter. But she is there, and she is as ferocious as she needs to be. Know that Tsisheró:hen is there. Know that the Warrior is there. And she is ready when you need her.

  • I had a dream of being attacked by a badger from a long distance away. I saw it coming from about 50 yards away. I started running and as I glanced back to see it was gaining on me, I decided to stop running and turn to just face the attack. I waited for it to get close enough and then it leaped in the air towards me. It latched on to my skin and I began pressing it’s jaw harder into my skin so that it couldn’t bite down and pull out a huge chunk. I do not know who won the fight as the scene ended there.
    Very odd dream for me. I’ve never dreamed of being attacked by an animal before.

It is a time in my life when I need to dig deep and be the fighter that I have always been, to be the example that I too often only speak about.
