Interpreting the messages of Spirit through symbolism
Armadillo is symbolic of boundaries and shields. This creature knows that he is in charge of what he chooses to experience in life. If Armadillo comes across a situation he doesn't want to be a part of, he just curls up into a ball, using shields to define clear boundaries. If this animal symbol has come into your awareness then you are being asked to define your personal boundaries with others or to a particular situation you are dealing with. Armadillo is reminding you that you are in control of what you want to experience. Are you respecting yourself and others? Are people walking all over you, disrespecting your personal space? If so, Armadillo is suggesting you raise your shields and have enough respect for yourself to draw out clear boundaries. Take a break from others and find your personal space. Don't let other people treat you like a doormat and don't treat others that way either. Choose what you want to experience in this life! Deflect unwanted words or aggression and let the pettiness of others roll right off your back. Draw a circle on a piece of paper and list what you choose to allow from others, guarding yourself from everything else Carry this with you as a reminder on how to deflect unwanted energies. These could all be the symbolic messages Armadillo is sending you.
