There is much to be learned from the attributes, characteristics and symbolism of the Swan. As a totem animal, if the swan enters our life it can teach us all about inner-beauty, grace, purity, fidelity, love, music, poetry and transformation. As a bird of the air, land and water, they make excellent guides to the therapeutic powers of the same elements. Swan teaches us that there is beauty in all things, for as they begin life as “ugly duckings”; they emerge full-grown into beauty personified. Its message is quite clear, things are not always as they appear outwardly, and teaches that we should look inside for our own inner beauty.
