Panda Animal Totem Symbolism
We are all well associated with the panda as an animal totem. This is a gentle giant of a creature in its black and white. Panda hurries for nothing, and concerns itself with little but continuing to enjoy life and munching happily on the bamboo shoots that grow in its native home. It’s space is important to it, as it’s world knows little conflict, and it can become easily stressed when the world impedes on its home.
Panda, as such, allows us to be open and aware to the energies that surround us, the undercurrents of the society in which we live. That sensitivity, however, also calls on us knowing how to take care of ourselves so that we will not be overwhelmed with it.
This is where her lesson about personal boundaries becomes relevant. As a spirit symbol, Panda teaches us that we must have a place of safety, of solitude. A place where we have protection from the chaotic energies of the world around us.
