The Koala

Koalas teach us many things such as the importance of relaxation and being ‘in the moment’. Stay in the present, take in the beauty of your surroundings, go with the flow….

Koalas represent our physical and mental well-being. When they appear around you, they are trying to send the message that you need to spend some time nurturing yourself. It’s ok to take a break from the calamities of ‘daily life’ from time to time. Why not plan a getaway to a relaxing retreat or spa so that you can restore some balance back in to your life? Koalas also teach healthy eating habits so pay attention to your diet and aim to eat foods that are easily digested, like green vegetables and herbs.

Seeing Koalas may also be a sign to be aware of your emotions. Don’t let your emotions get the better of you. You can detach from them and keep them contained by practising slow breathing for deep relaxation.

If you are drawn to koalas, it means that you are very much in tune with the emotions of others. The empathy you have for others can be sometimes draining for you. That’s why you need time alone to put yourself first now and then to refresh and regroup.
