What Is a Unicorn?

By Diana Cooper

Unicorns are considered mythical, magical creatures, though some believe that they did in fact once roam the earth. Unicorns appear in folk tales from around the world and are often depicted as beautiful, mysterious white horses with a single horn on the forehead. In many paintings and popular culture they are portrayed with wings. Unicorns are considered virtuous and it is believed that they appear only to those with pure hearts or to those on a mission for good. Unicorns grant wishes and carry qualities of love, peace, calm, gentleness, hope, majesty and caring. Unicorns work at the soul level by helping to fulfill life’s purpose.
