Power Animals: The Mole

A Mole totem gives you a heightened sense of touch. You either derive more pleasure from this or become more aloof because of your sensitivity. Psychic touch is also possible with a Mole totem.

People with a Mole totem need to trust their senses. They will know what is true and what is false with just a touch.

Mole is also a guide to the Underworld, to hidden treasures and mysterious places.
Fresh air is extremely important to a Mole person. Remember that Mole is a digger -- always searching for his treasures which he ultimately finds.

The Mole teaches us how to embrace faith. As one of the few mammals that has evolved in the direction of giving away sight, and one of the fewer that spends its life swimming through the sands blindly, in order to find nourishment, it teaches us that sometimes faith is more important than what we can see and validate. Mole teaches us very literally about how not knowing the future, and having faith that all will turn out okay, is sometimes the best path we can take in our lives. Mole says 'let go of doubt, it's doing nothing for you.' Some animals teach the skill of skepticism and doubt, but marsupial mole gives the gift of the other side. Too much doubt dilutes our enjoyment of things that we cannot prove or see; things like love, spiritual experiences, even knowing how the future will turn out.

When Mole is around, it is important to believe in what you feel, and not in what you can see. Trust your instincts. It may be that you observe someone who seems trustworthy, but your instincts tell you that you can't trust them. Likewise, it may be that opportunities may be better found not so much through looking at the surface of things, but going deeper and trusting what your heart wants, instead of what your head says is the right thing to do. Mole gave away one sense, so that it may use others more wisely.

The gift Mole teaches, is how to use our own senses wisely. How honed are your senses? It is important to dive below the surface of whatever circumstances are bothering you. Try and get a sense of what is going on beneath whatever you can see. Are you able to trust in your own sight, smell, touch or taste, over the opinions or judgements of others? Do you trust your own insights or instincts? It is important to know how to listen and understand the information your senses give to you, so that you may turn a mismatch of knowledge into wisdom and nourishment. When mole energy is around, be prepared for unusual situations. They may be happenings that are unexplainable by science, or moments of synchronicity that seem to only make sense when interpreted in context of ideas like 'fate.'

Mole energy can help you to find, understand, or confirm your beliefs. It may be understanding why you believe the things you do (flawed or not), or alternatively, it may be confirmation of a spiritual path that you have been curious about, or that would suit where you're at in life.

A little mole visited me today on a much needed time. I knew he had a little message for me. Thank you for this article.
