Powerful Medicine and Wisdom Teachings
Learn to use the power of the flicker:
“Flicker people need to learn about their own sense of security and their personal need to find a spiritual direction that helps them to channel the life energy that always flows through all of us.”
Flickers are members of the woodpecker family.
Woodpeckers spend most of their time in the trees, flickers are more grounded. Both have a variety of sounds that they make and during mating season they display great musical talents. They are master drummers connecting to the beat of the planet, the heartbeat of other animals and the rhythm of the world.
The Flicker is one of my personal animal totems.
They are beautiful birds with stunning markings. Often it has a red patch on the back of the head and a black crescent on its upper breast. The red patch reflects a stimulation of the chakra centres of the head–the throat, brow, and crown centers. The black crescent reflects the phase of the new moon. Ted Andrews–Animal-Speak
Unlike most birds, they have two toes in front and two toes in back on its feet. If this is your totem, it can reflect a new balance coming into your life, regardless of the conditions. When there is balance, this is greater health.
Watch for a new rhythm and the ability and opportunity to manifest all-healing love.

My flicker friends and family members could certainly be described this way.
I love to watch the flickers, particularly in the spring and fall when they are abundant in numbers during migration. I’ve had flock of 8, 10, 15 on my lawn feasting on the insects.
