The essence of spirit contains all that is. All that is the Tiger. His piercing eyes and a glistening coat of stripes with a colour that conveys danger. All that is the Tiger, is the essence, the past of the Tiger.
His trials, tribulations, and strengths are all found in spirit as a collective form of energy, that may be called upon and used. This may be said about all living things as all living things have a spirit.
Tiger Spirit Animal Meaning
Through our connection with mind, body, and spirit, the channel needed to tune into the essence of spirit is learned. A familiar animal, one you already may have a connection with is the wisest choice to bring through. It may not be the Tiger, but it does not matter, as the metaphysical principles remain the same.
In the Chinese Martial Arts of Kung-fu, the animal’s physical characteristics were mimicked. The five animal systems, which originated in the Henan Shaolin Temple consisted of the Crane, Snake, Leopard, Tiger, and Dragon. The intense enduring dedication of training involved to achieve such a feat is astonishing. And revered in Martial Arts even today.
The stresses and manipulations associated with the body by doing this over the long term are caused by going against the natural human biomechanical movements. For we do not have the same body structure as an animal, therefore, it is unnatural for us to try to move like one. With no offence intended, actually, I believe they were on to something. This led me to write this article, wanting to share what my guides taught me oh so long ago.
No matter if we a Boxers Martial Artists of any style or even Yoga masters. The essence of spirit, animal, or otherwise may be channelled. To bring back to our example, the channelling of the Tiger will allow you to react, hear, sense, feel and be one with the animal.
Enter superhuman, supernatural abilities, as two become one. An ever-nourishing, everlasting, resource of energy available at will while in physical motion. Biomechanically moving, by the learned instincts of what self-defence training you may have.
The famous Bruce Lee knew this Magic. Bruce instinctively intuitively channelled the essence of Dragon and Tiger. The Mythical animal Dragon has access to both Heaven and Earth and acts as a messenger between the two. If you are a fan of The Way of The Dragon or The Return of The Dragon as it was released in the United States, co-starring Chuck Norris is the best example of Bruce trying to convey his experiences and understanding of the essence of spirit.
The two animals used to symbolize the duality of Martial Arts are the Tiger and Dragon. Tiger represents the Physical, and the Dragon the spirit. Combined with a highly accomplished meditation of the mind, this path to enlightenment leads one to peace, peace of mind, and a love for planet Earth.
Becoming one with the Earth is a natural part of the Spiritual Warrior’s path to enlightenment. Martial Arts, Dance, and all other various forms of the arts of human movement create a divine connection to the universal whole. Inspiring and sending love out to the universe and all who witness this divine connection in motion.
We have words for it but they only describe the witness’s feelings such as a tingle up my spine, goosebumps or the one I get a giggle from, someone just walked over my grave. © as channelled by psychic medium Ian Scott.
