Porcupine Symbolism & Meaning 

Message from the Universe

The Universe whispers:   Once Upon a Time  You Knew it To Be So
Children see magic all around them, why is that so?
Because they come from a knowing place, a place where anything is possible, and no dream is too big, or too grand or too fancy.  They come from a place where magic is whispered in the winds gently gracing the leaves.  They come from a place where a snowflake is a doorway to a whole new world.  For just a moment close your eyes and remember. . . ah yes, there it is little dreamer, remember this place, for this is where you make it so.
