Beaver Medicine: Never, ever , ever give up

Beaver Symbolism...     "The Beaver is a monumental symbol of never ever giving up.  Beavers are symbolic for having foresight and vision to scout locations, plan and then carry out the vision of engineering and building their dam and lodge.   The Beaver has incredible foresight and is indeed a true visionary.  The Beaver knows precisely what it needs to sustain itself and finds the perfect location based on the allocation of resources.  It then goes about changing the entire environment in which it builds it's dam and lodge, to suit all of it's needs".

Beaver Meaning

The Beaver meaning is all about becoming a master builder, being a visionary dream maker, locating the perfect spot for a home providing security and abundant resources right outside the front door, or tunnel as it happens to be with the Beaver!

If you're looking to become a master architect for your life, look no further than the ever industrious spirit animal the Beaver.   Symbols of the Beaver Spirit Animal; industrious, problem solver, resourceful, totem animal of never ever giving up on your dream.

The Beaver Lodge is carved out from under the dam once the dam is built, the Lodge will keep the Beaver family warm and dry all winter long.

The Beaver dam is built from hundreds or even thousands of branches of nearby trees, and is built in an area surrounded by plentiful trees that it will use to maintain it's lodge as well as to eat, as trees are it's primary diet. 

The Beaver lodge is also a dam.   It is built within a waterway, such as a stream or river in such a way that the dam will create multiple ponds around the lodge once it's built, serving the Beaver with abundant resources for food and lodge repair and expansion.  Some Beaver dams are exceptionally large, spanning the length of a football field, providing a home for several generations of Beavers.

Beavers have very strong family connections and all members of the family help to build and maintain the lodge.
