A Rainbow of Spirituality

Canadian Goose Totem

Canada Geese don't abandon sick, wounded, or lost members of their flock, and this is only one of their cooperative habits. Flock members alternate in being leaders and followers during the flight. It has also been demonstrated that the constant flapping of their wings helps to keep them all aloft.

This is a powerful totem to contemplate, one which teaches us that cooperation and caring are natural forms of behavior. It teaches us well that when we are in tune with our own inner rhythms we know when to lead, and when to follow. Thus, leadership, instead of being either an exclusive privilege or a burden, is a shared opportunity.
