I walked outside today and an eagle flew over my head and landed in the field next to my house. It was really amazing. I watched it for a couple of minutes trying to lift a heavy branch. I am hoping that he is nesting close by and I will get to see him again… with my good camera!
This pretty much set the tone for my day. It is making me think of the wonders of nature and life and how it is possible to touch a piece of magic if only for a minute throughout the day. We have blessings all around us and most people don’t even see them. Eventually, the eagle lifted up and flew away and Luna and I returned to the house. Of course, I see this moment of beauty as a sign and looked up the symbolism of the eagle.
“It is time to reconnect with your spiritual path. It’s time to listen to and heed your spiritual directives as well as your heart and to allow them both to lead the way for you at this time. When you can find yourself in this state of flight then all the doors will open and the directions you need to follow will be made clear. Like a beacon – your heart will follow the light.” -spirit-animals.com
I also liked this one: “Eagle symbolizes a state of being that is reached through inner work, understanding and passing the initiation tests that come about from reclaiming our personal power. Eagle is the gift of clear vision with which one can truly see, to live in balance with heaven and Earth. Eagle shows you how to look above so you are able to touch Grandfather Sun with your heart, to love the Shadow as much as the Light. You are being asked to give yourself permission to be free in order to reach the joy that your heart longs for.” -ShamanicJourney.com
I am being reminded a lot these days to go inward, to listen and just be. I am also being called to simplify my life, meditate, write in my journal and most especially the need to get off of the computer and create with my hands more. I have been so attached to the computer that I almost forget how to create with my hands outside of painting, of course. There have been so many changes in my life these last two years and most especially these last three months, it’s hard to believe some days. I can however, honestly say that I know deep in my heart that I am exactly where I need to be right now. I will continue to walk bravely forward and put my fears aside because I know and trust that the universe has my back and will continue to support me on my journey. I can’t wait to see what is waiting for me beyond those next few steps.
