Slowing Down with Tree Sloth Medicine
Self-care and Personal Growth through Gifts from the Rainforest:
23. Sloth Medicine – the tree sloth peers out into the darkness with clarity of vision and moves very slowly, if at all. He advises that it’s often very wise to watch and wait. Know what you want before taking action.
Are you trying to do too much at one time? Are you clear about what your true priorities are? Is there so much going on that you can’t follow it all? If so, what will help?
Healing Action: Slow down. Narrow your focus. Be more selective. Make some priorities for yourself.
The Eye of Truth
The sloth lives quietly in his tree
watching the world around him.
He rarely moves unless he has something
very specific he wants to accomplish.
The birds and monkeys chatter endlessly
and rush about doing their daily business.
But this is not sloth’s way.
To him, all that screeching and squawking
and rushing around
is a distraction to clear thinking.
His motto is:
“Say what you mean and mean what you say.
Know your intention and brighten your day.
One thought at a time will make a soul wise.
When looking for truth, I use my own eyes.”
For best results, gaze softly at the Circle both crossed over the midline of the body and uncrossed so that the communication is more complete.

Further Exploration into Tree Sloth Medicine:
It’s time to slow down and focus your energies on what you want to accomplish. Turn your attention 100% toward your intention. This is not the time for multi-tasking. If you have too many things going on, you won’t be able to keep track of what’s really important, and something really important is happening in this situation. Save yourself future regrets and resentments by paying attention now.
You may be in too much of a hurry to properly appreciate some very insightful information that is coming your way. Slow down.
Your mind keeps jumping ahead and that’s preventing you from finishing your task.
Your communication with others will benefit now by being especially clear and direct. It may be that others are in too much of a hurry to hear you. Get it in writing and insist on their signature. This particular situation strongly affects your well-being. If they are unwilling it may be time to re-evaluate the relationship.
