Insect Animal Totems and Symbolic Insect Meanings

Insect Animal Totems and Insect Meanings

Bugs. Whether you love some or hate them all, insects are all extremely symbolic. As animal totems, insects have a lot to teach us in terms of productivity, communication, teamwork and more.

Insect animal totems all seem to point to other key characteristics like: Tenacity, patience, and detachment.

Seemingly unaffected by their surroundings as they go about their business, insect animal totem meanings herald the importance of minding our own business. Yet, at the same time, most insects have a strong sense of community. The trick is keeping balance, and insect animal totems certainly do that.

In truth, insects are seriously connected to their environment. They are so in tune with their surroundings that they seem one with the elements within which they live. This is a big lesson for us. Rather than hammer at our conditions to make them what we want – insects teach us to adapt to our conditions. Work with our environment. Essentially, living in harmony with our surroundings is a lot easier than fighting everything around us all the time.

Insects are progressive, and proactive – always adapting to the environment, and never letting little things like natural disasters get in their way of progress. When we get discouraged, we could all learn a thing or two from insect animal totem meanings. It’s their unsinkable nature that reminds us to keep moving forward for progress.

“Everything is a miracle.

We just have to recognize it.”

“If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate

back to the rich state of equilibrium

that existed ten thousand years ago.

If insects were to vanish,

the environment would collapse into chaos.”

~E. O. Wilson, Biologist

You know…it’s often the most unsuspecting organisms in Nature that pack a real whallup in symbolic meaning. Bugs might not be high on the list for even the most avid Nature-Lovers, but to be sure, these amazing little creatures have profound meaning.

In essence, big symbolic messages come from these tiny packages, and it behooves us to pay attention when the insect world speaks to us.

As always, I wish you happy symbolic journeys, and keep interpreting! Thanks for reading!
