Had to pass along a great post claiming that Odin was the original Santa.
And, last night in my holiday hotel room in the great white north a lady bug flew into the room. This is the second time I’ve had this happen in a cold northern area in winter. So I had to see what it might mean from http://www.spirit-animals.com:
Don’t push too hard! Your wish will be fulfilled if you allow it to come to you.-Ladybug
If Ladybug has flown into your life;
The appearance of a Ladybug heralds a time of luck in which our wishes begin to be fulfilled. Higher goals and new heights are now possible. Worries begin to dissipate. New happiness comes about. Ladybug also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. Let things flow at their natural pace. In the due course of time, our wishes will all come true. Alternatively she could be signalling that you can leave your worries behind and that new happiness is on its way. Ladybug signals you to to not be scared to live your own truth. Protect your truth and know that it is yours to honor.
If Ladybug is your Animal Totem;
When Ladybug is your personal animal totem you are most likely a very lively and interesting companion. You are constantly delving into the mysteries of the Universe and the unknown. You are also naturally highly spiritual and inquisitive by nature, and certainly not satisfied with mundane explanations or boring companions. For the most part you are open minded and enjoy having your consciousness expanded. You have a tendency to bring joy to those around you. People enjoy being around you.You are trusting, happy and easy going.
If Ladybug has come into your Dreams;
To dream of a ladybug (also known as a ladybird) is a sign that you are likely to experience a run of good luck in the near future. To dream of many ladybugs can point to feeling as though things are somewhat out of control, as though a lot of small things are going wrong. Consider ways in which you can take one step at a time to feel more in control of your life and your work. To see a ladybug in your dream can also symbolizes beauty. The dream may also be a metaphor for a lady who is bugging you in your waking life. Perhaps there is an issue that you need to address with this lady. If the ladybug is unusually big, then it is analogous to the magnitude of the problem.
I’ll take it! Merry Christmas Everyone!
