More About the Symbol of the Bear
The bear hibernates and goes within. Bear energy is the energy that seeks your deepest truths. And with the finding of your truth comes the honey of life - the sweetness that comes with knowing who you truly are. Bear energy helps you to go within and touch the great void where creation and you come from. By entering silence we give ourselves the opportunity to return to the world stronger and wiser. Bear energy is also about taking the courage that to stop thinking is not to die because we are so much more than our thoughts. So take a break, go within yourself and introspect. From the true place of bear we can see that life is like a dream to us and that our deeper self is not so tied with earthly concerns.
To have with you the symbol of bear is to state your intention to travel within and connect with the places where intuition and "knowing without thinking" are the rulers. Some activities that can help support this connection are meditation, dreaming, long walks by yourself and switching off the television.
Staff Review by Mel Hurst
The first word that sprung to mind when I burnt this incense was 'autumnal'. It was quite difficult to pick out specific scents I could use to describe the aroma, but to me it was a very deep and earthy. Strangely, I wouldn't say it was actually the fragrance that I noticed; it was the effect it had. It was comforting, and after burning a stick for only 10 minutes I felt more focused.
Because the incense in this range are natural and handmade, they only give a low smoke and are slow burning but I haven't found this to affect the aroma.
The Bear totem spirit represents getting in touch with yourself, to be introspective and to reflect on the qualities of inner strength. You may choose to burn this incense to feel more connected with the energy of the bear and to bring the qualities of the animal into your life. It could also be used during meditation, for those moments in which you need to find time for yourself, to reflect and find time away from the crowd.
