When Cardinal enters your life they remind us that regardless of the time of day or year, we always have the opportunity to renew our own vitality and recognize the importance of our own life’s roles.
The Cardinal has a loud and clear whistle in their song. Whistles are often reminders to listen closely, to pay attention to what is blowing on the winds. In the case of the cardinal, the female joins in on the whistling, which is unusual among birds. This reminds us to be listening to the inner voice more closely for our own health and well-being.
Cardinals eat many weeds and injurious insects, creating beneficial service to life. Cardinal can reflect a need to be more careful about diet, that what you are eating may be injurious to yourself and affecting your overall vitality.
Cardinals brighten the environment and catch the eye and add color to our lives. When they appear as a totem, they do so to remind us to become like them. Add color to your life and remember that everything you do is of importance.
