Otter can detach from their problems, yet stay curious about them in order to find helpful answers without fretting. Otter reminds you to relax, let go of concerns, and go with the natural flow of life.
Reconnecting with your inner child allows you to embrace joy and curiosity in every present moment, making it possible for you to accept all the “good” and “bad” in your life. This results in the manifestation of an endless cycle of acceptance, love, and freedom.

I Mark was visiting my friend Hippie Larry, saw his wildwood tarot cards, and got a feeling. We have used them before, but I felt the draw to pull from it. As he shuffled he dropped the card “page of vessels” otter card. I randomly opened the book after he asked the meaning and it flipped right to the page to find the origin and meaning. He then shuffled the deck of cards for me, and I immediately pulled the same card. “page of vessels” otter card. which is the same card he dropped, and the same page i flipped to right away. How much of a coincidence is it that the card was dropped, opened in the book, and then chosen by the one wanting a reading.
