Have you ever had one of those moments when nature seems to send you a message? For me, today's walk with my damlatian Stormie turned into an encounter with acorns.  I was feeling a little down and moody this morning, you know one of those days where you are wondering what you're even doing with your life? I've been having days like that lately. This morning I was just moody and feeling like I'm just not making enough progress and I'm not yet where I want to be.

  So I did what I do and grabbed my bestie Stormie and headed out for a nice walk to walk my mood off. It's a nice September morning, sunny and crisp and as we walk I start to feel my mood lighten (as it always does when I'm with her)

 I was pondering if I should continue on or do something different with myself and my business. Out of nowhere (well not nowhere out of a giant oak tree) 4 acorns, one after the other hit me right on top of my head. I said hmmmm, is this a message from the universe? I picked them up and came home and looked up what do acorns symbolize spiritually. 


Here's what I found:

The Potential Within - Acorns, those small unassuming seeds from oak trees, carry profound symbolism across various spiritual and cultural contexts. At their core, they represent potential. Just as an acorn holds the blueprint for a mighty oak tree, it reminds us that even the smallest of beginnings can lead to something extraordinary.

Strength and Resilience - Oak trees are known for their strength and endurance. They can withstand storms and the test of time. In the same way, acorns symbolize resilience and the ability to weather life's challenges. I guess I needed the reminder of my own strength and ability to endure.

Patience and Persistence - The journey from acorn to oak tree is not a swift one. It takes years of patient growth and consistent effort. This teaches us the value of patience and persistance in our own lives. So I'm feeling encouraged to keep nurturing my business, knowing that with time, it can flourish into something remarkable.

A Connection to Nature -  Acorns are a product of the natural world, emphasizing our connection to Mother Earth. They remind us to respect and preserve the environment. A gentle reminder of our responsibility to care for our planet and live in harmony with nature.

Fertility and Renewal - In some cultures, acorns are associated with fertility and the cycle of life. They symbolize the potential for new beginnings and the continuous renewal of life's cycles. Perhaps, my encounter with the acorns is signaling a fresh start or a period of growth in my business. 

In conclusion, the spiritual meaning of acorns encompasses potential, strength, patience, our connection to nature, and the promise of renewal. When nature sends us unexpected messages, it's an opportunity to reflect on our own journey and the messages the universe might be trying to convey.

So the next time you find yourself under an oak tree and acorns come tumbling down, take a moment to ponder their symbolism. They might just be reminding you of your own potential and the strength within you. Message received universe and thank you!
