Penguins are cute and odd creatures that waddle and walk in ways that make them look like they are dressed up with no where to go. Their tuxedo like “clothes” help the penguin look very different and the fact that they do not fly makes them different all together.
There are eighteen different kinds of penguins and they come from different places such as Antarctica to the Galapagos Islands. This might make you wonder where or how you would ever see a penguin, especially if you are from the northern hemisphere, but a sighting doesn’t just mean that you see them in person, you can see them in pictures, on television or even in your dreams.
Symbols of Penguins
Penguins are strong and flexible creatures. They can focus on what they need to do and if a problem comes, they know how to fix it and make things better. Penguins take things in stride and when things are hard, they work through it until they solve it.
Penguins can mean faith and devotion to others. They will pick one mate and say with that penguin for the rest of their life. The way that they live can often be hard and dangerous and some of the conditions and weather that they face is brutal.
When a penguin mates with another and it fails to return to them, the penguin will become a widow. They will then go and find another mate and since they are very sociable, they are not often single. Even though they face hard weather almost every day, they will cuddle up with their partner and their friends and stay safe and warm.
Penguins live in large groups and sometimes the group can even go up to a thousand penguins. They are peaceful with each other, and they believe in peace and unity within their colonies.
Good and Bad Sides
Penguin parents will both take on the time to raise their young. They will start when the baby is just an egg, and they will each take turns laying on the egg and making sure that the egg is never alone. They will always focus on their young and make sure that they are fed, safe and warm.
While one penguin is protecting the nest, the other will go out and find food for them. When the one seeking food returns, they will cuddle together and then switch roles and one will go and find food and the other will stay with the young. Their biggest goal is to make sure that the family survives.
Being a parent is important to the penguin family and when the chick doesn’t make it or if the female penguin is unable to have babies, the parent feelings stay strong and sometimes the penguins will take the chick of others penguins to have their own child. The mother will do its best to bond with the chick that they took but it will only last a couple of weeks and then the chick will go back to its own mother.
Some adult penguins that cannot have babies will take on other animals that are born or abandoned and sometimes they will even take on other birds that are small. They will do what they can to nurture and love something else.
Dreaming of Penguins
If you dream of a penguin, it can mean that something negative is going on in your life and it is causing you emotional problems. This can be something that feels very bad but isn’t as bad as it really feels like. Sometimes you will have to look at the problem and see what is really going on.
Since penguins are black and white, this can mean the same thing as the yin and yang, and you might need to get your emotions balanced. Maybe you need to meditate and find out what is going on and how you can get peace in your life.
