Why is our logo a wolf made of green leaves? Every aspect has a deeper meaning and symbolises how we view our family (including our clients), our team, and our business.
The wolf offers some of the most striking animal meanings in the realm of animals. The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, family commitment and awareness of the importance of social connections.
The wolf symbolizes:
• Sharp intelligence, deep connection with instincts
• Appetite for freedom
• Expression of strong instincts
• Strong Family bonds
It is a power animal symbolic of freedom. Wolf power points to an appetite for freedom and living life powerfully, guided by a deep connection with intuition and instincts. This animal reflects sharp intelligence in dealing with important matters which is so critical in our environment.
Wolves are wild animals that are not easily domesticated and when they appear, they are an invitation to look at what supports your authentic and true expression of yourself. The wolf is a reminder to keep your spirit alive and trust your instincts to find the way that will best suit you.
Family is very important to wolves, with the pack working in unison to survive. The pack protects its own as we protect our own. All the wolves in a pack help take care of the pups. When the pups are very small, other pack members bring food to the mother so she does not have to leave the den. When the pups are a little larger, pack members take turns bringing them food, playing with them and even baby-sitting.
Trees and leaves have deep-rooted symbolic meaning in virtually every culture on earth. Forests are the abode of the nature spirits, leprechauns and sasquatches. They are a refuge from danger, a source of food and ancient healing roots, home to wild animals and singing birds. Forests provide us with wood and paper and oxygen, are alive, mysterious and constantly changing. Trees, with their whispering leaves, are at the heart of Mother Nature. The symbolism of trees and leaves is apparent in common metaphors such as the Tree of Life, our ancestral heritage depicted in ‘family trees’, how we ‘put down roots’ when we create lasting relationships, and in the phrase ‘turning over a new leaf’ when we experience significant change for the better. Trees and leaves are ubiquitous in the fabric of our lives.
A single leaf is an ancient heraldic symbol that represents happiness. Ivy leaves symbolize a strong and lasting friendship, derived from the ability to stay attached to a rocky surface in even the most inhospitable conditions.
That a leaf signifies truth, is evident from many passages in the Bible where man is compared to a tree, or is called a tree, and where fruits signify the good of charity, and a leaf the truth as in Ezekiel:--
And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, there cometh up every tree for food, whose leaf doth not fall, neither is the fruit consumed, it is reborn every month, because the waters thereof issue out of the sanctuary; and the fruit thereof shall be for food, and the leaf thereof for medicine (Ezekiel 47:12; Rev. 22:2).
THE COLOUR GREEN:
Green is no longer just a colour. It's now the symbol of ecology and a verb. Since the beginning of time, it is the colour of balance and harmony. From a colour psychology perspective, it is the great balancer creating equilibrium between the head and the heart. Green is also the colour of growth, the colour of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well-being. This is why there is so much of this relaxing colour on the earth.
It is friendly and can keep confidences. Green relates to stability and endurance, giving us persistence and the strength to cope with adversity. Green is also the colour of prosperity and abundance, of finance and material wealth. It relates to the business world, to real estate and property. Prosperity gives a feeling of safety to green.
This is a colour that has a strong sense of right or wrong, inviting good judgment. It sees both sides of the equation, weighs them up, and then usually takes the moral stand in making appropriate decisions.
THE COLOUR WHITE:
White is colour at its most complete and pure, the colour of perfection. The colour meaning of white is purity, wholeness and completion. In colour psychology white is the colour of new beginnings, and is the blank canvas waiting to be written upon. While white isn't stimulating to the senses, it opens the way for the creation of anything the mind can conceive.
White contains an equal balance of all the colours of the spectrum, representing both the positive and negative aspects of all colours. Its basic feature is equality, implying fairness and impartiality, neutrality and independence. White is totally reflective, awakening openness, growth and creativity. You can't hide behind it as it amplifies everything in its way.
THE COLOUR GRAY:
This is the colour of intellect, knowledge and wisdom, and is perceived as being long-lasting, classic and refined. Controlled and inconspicuous, it is the perfect neutral to bring balance.
