Brown Bear: Standing Your Ground

This is the fifth of my ten bear-related Tarot spreads.

Brown bears are the category of bears that hold Grizzlies and Kodiak bears. Grizzlies and Kodiaks each have individual symbolism; but as a whole, the brown bears represent standing your ground.

It's interesting to take some time to discover what makes and keeps you strong and protected. My personal strength comes from years of struggling with difficulties and coming out of them in one piece! I hate conflict, as I'm sure most people do; but when I have no choice but to face it, I prefer to face it head on and get it over with quickly. I have a history of learning things the hard way, so if I notice that my flight instinct starts kicking in, I realize it's just my old way of protecting myself. At that point, I tell myself it's time to deal with the problem at hand instead of running from it.

Very valid points!!! I hate conflict but if its necessary (and sometimes it is) then let's just do it and move on. I try to do it as maturely as I can too.

Well, I never said I do things in a mature fashion, I do try to take the high road always, but, as I'm sure you know Dianna...people can frustrate the hell out of a person.
