Inspired by the archetypal animal “jaguar” from ancient Andean shamnism and the medicine way, each of the archetypal animals exudes a different flavor of energy. Jagua: Where serpent represents the power of healing which is gradual and incremental; jaguar stands for sudden transformation. That which endures is always changing and renewing itself; that which remains unchanged perishes. We can transform our bodies so that they heal more rapidly and age more elegantly by embodying the forces represented by jaguar. Consider the metaphor that we have nine lives, like cats. When we reach the end of one of these lifetimes (others might call them stages or phases), it is important to give the old self a decent burial, and then leap like a jaguar into who we are becoming. Otherwise, we can spend years patching and fixing an old self which we have outgrown. Jaguar teaches us to step beyond fear, violence and death. She is the life force of the jungle and the steward of the life force.
