Ang Bai, Buaya, kag ang Kahoy sg Kaluluwa (Visayan phrase that means The Woman, Crocodile and Tree of the Soul).
It’s time for Filipinos to remember the White Buwaya because he represents the Light aspect of the crocodile.
Greed and corruption are shadow or dark aspects of the crocodile and all that modern filipinos remember because of the wounds of Spanish colonization. How can we transition from this mindset? It takes service that comes from Love and Abundance, not Fear and Lack.
The light aspects of the crocodile power animal are power, courage, warrior-ship, protection, fertility.
Our white buwaya has a name. It is Nunui.
