The Towhee Medicine

This morning I was visited by an Eastern Towhee.. the first time I’ve seen this fellow at my feeder. I had to search the bird index to figure out what he was. Here’s some info I found on him and his medicine:

Towhee represents a time of utmost persistence and confidence. She teaches ways to uncover what is hidden. She shows the value of activity and progressing forward, even if it means taking steps backward. She shows how to maneuver in a way to keep going. Don’t give up. When Towhee appears there may something else you are missing and will show how to go over things with a new perspective. She uses resourcefulness and ingenuity to aid in revealing what is necessary. Is it time to voice your opinion? She shows the power in keeping feet on the ground and balancing energy and time that is spent on activities. Towhee’s medicine includes being quiet,

secretive and subdued when needed as well as being forthright, loud and defensive when it is appropriate. She shows how to balance such passive/aggressive properties. The time period for Towhee’s lesson span about 2 weeks. Be aware of situations where you can implement her wisdom for she will present you with the best course of action.

Many Blessings,

  1. An Eastern Tohee has been persistantly trying to fly into the window over my husband’s desk. Thank you for this post!

  2. I have been looking on and off for a description of Towhee wisdom since around 1995. The first time I asked someone they told me I should observe the wisdom myself. It seemed clear to me that towhee is very grounded. That is as far as I got. I have observed a number of birds, like the downy woodpecker for example illustrate persistence. I like your idea of “confidence” and even though I have not noticed that, I will try to see it as I watch and listen to them. I never noticed “secretive” either but I find it very intriguing. Thinking of Towhee as secretive has helped me reflect on the fact that they are around me in open and hidden places as well. Thank you so much for this post!
