Eagle Animal Totem Symbolism
The Eagle in symbolism has long been associated with strength and independence. To most of the world it is recognizable as the freedom for which the United States of America was founded. But its history as a symbol of strength and vision goes back far beyond that. To the Native Americans, the Eagle represents the Great Spirit, the creator being recognized among many tribes.
The Eagle’s ability to fly breaks it free of the constraints of the ground, giving it freedom to go where it will. As such Eagle as a spirit guide can take us to places we need to be in order to progress, to learn the lessons it has for us. The great vision that the Eagle is blessed with and known for can help us see through the shrouds that hide what we most need to learn. The ability to discern secrets is powerful in Eagle, though it most readily helps us see that which is really there, rather than what we want to see.
