I love goats, in fact you might say l’m a little obsessed with them.
In my dreams, I have a vision of having several in my back yard (accompanied by donkeys) and they have free roam- maybe even access to a doggie door to come into the garage. I’m not sure yet- the vision’s not totally clear and Mark doesn’t quite see things the same way -LOL!
I also have a dream for a rescue farm later in life for older goats, donkeys, horses and dogs. That vision is not clear yet either- but its brewing 🙂
Ok. Back to reality…
I’m not quite sure why I love goats so much. It could be those little rectangular pupils- they mesmerize me. Or, the fact that they have no upper front teeth and so when they nibble food out of your hand it kind of tickles. Maybe, its their playfulness, love of life, and curiosity that remind me to lighten up and enjoy the journey — it should be a fun adventure not so stressful.
And, while all those are really fun reasons to simply love goats, I was wondering if there is a deeper meaning…after all, when I become totally enthralled with something, I usually find that there’s more there than meets the eye.
Do you ever feel that way?
So, I did what I always do when I need to find answers…I turned to the all knowing Google and much to my fascination I found this:
According to spirit-animals.com, if a goat happens to cross your path, it may mean:
“It is letting you know that this is a time to begin new climbs and new endeavors. Take your time and plan your course. Look closely at what is ahead so that you can be surefooted along your course. This animal can also be letting you know that perhaps its time to stretch and reach for new heights. Are your goals high enough? Do you deserve more?
Alternatively this creature can be letting you know that you have to trust your own ability to land on your feet. Having faith in yourself and your own abilities is a very powerful tool that is available to you at all times. Move forward one step at a time.”
There it was!
So what can we learn from goats?
For me, they are a reminder to follow my path, reach for new heights, to trust my ability and know I’ll land on my feet!
For you, it could be the same thing. Remember to trust yourself more and have faith in your abilities. Take time to plan your course and reach for new heights, and move forward one surefooted step at a time.
It’s really all about believing in you.
I encourage you…become one with the goat.
