What you see and judge as shortcomings in others is also reflected within you. Realize that true acceptance comes from the heart and that there is no need for judgment in any shape or form. Allow forgiveness to flow through you.-Pelican
If Pelican has flown across your path…
Alternatively this bird also teaches us to take it easy at times even in the most hectic times of our lives. Make sure to make an effort to float through life and float through your emotions. Savor each special moment. Have you taken the time to enjoy what life has to offer in this moment?
Sometimes it takes a team to accomplish the goals that you have set for yourself. Do not be afraid to ask for help. Recruit what you need in order to get the job done.
Pelican as your Totem…
If this bird is one of your totems then you are a confident and calm individual. You are also very good at controlled movements such as dance and certain types of sport. You easily balance thought and emotions and understand the proper use of abundance. You enjoy shared journeys and find safety in numbers.
To see one of these birds floating on the water is a symbol of reflection and balance, going inward and finding stillness. If this bird has a full bill it is an omen of unexpected abundance coming your way.
