Armadillo's can swim, float, and even walk on the bottom of a stream, by holding its breath for nearly six minutes. The armadillo is a natural digger. All of these qualities suggest the need to examine your roles in different dimensions of your life. Are you exploring psychic transmedium experiences? Are you bringing in past life information from other universes? Are you digging deep enough into your emotions to differentiate what you want, versus what other people want you to want?
An armadillo may suggest a past life connection to the Aztecs, European medieval knights, or Spanish conquistadors.
How do you protect what you feel is a vulnerable side of yourself? Are you able to do that in a way that is truly healthy?
