Manatee Meaning and Messages
In general, Manatee symbolism reminds us that it’s time to slow down and swim through your emotions. Similar to the Chicken, the Manatee meaning guides you to let your feelings wash over you so that you can feel what is all percolating there. By allowing yourself to feel you are also allowing yourself to move forward. Therefore, as you move forward with this spirit animal, you release the old emotional baggage that no longer serves you. Consequently, this will open up a new wide range of possibilities for you.
Trust is also a big message that Manatee symbolism brings forth. When you allow yourself to move forward slowly and deliberately one step at a time, you will accomplish your goals. In other words, trust the path before you. Furthermore, you must accept the guidance that you are receiving to get you to your objectives.
Like the Vulture, this creature is also reminding you to use all of your gifts, including the etheric ones. You will find your answers in the integration of your intuition, emotions, and physical senses.
