THE KICKING DONKEY PROJECT 2019
Donkey as a Spirit, Totem, and Power Animal can help! Donkey teaches you how to balance your responsibilities and to remain surefooted when expressing your opinion.
Historians believe that Donkeys were domesticated by Nubians around 4,500 years ago. In that region, they took over for the Ox as an important pack animal. This position in life leads to Donkey becoming an integral participant in mobilizing pastoral and agricultural communities. .So, it’s not surprising to see Donkey symbolism and meaning tied together with the growth of civilization, travel, trade and general service. Their versatility and being a beloved beast of burden is legendary.
No matter the region Donkey’s somewhat stubborn nature was an asset. This creature does not move if they perceive any danger. The donkey knows well what he can (and more importantly – can’t) do. As humans learned to trust Donkey’s intuitive senses it often kept them out of trouble. The lesson here from the animal spirit guide world is one of caution. When we have a challenge, look for a safe means of resolving it rather than simply running right ahead.
