September 17, 2015 Card of the Day – Hawk

card 47b redtail hawk 1122
I was awoken today out of a deep meditation by a Grandmother Yelling and shaking me…. “a Hawk, a Hawk, a HAWKKKKKkkkkkk!!!!” she yelled, and I was then swooped and coup was counted on my head by my Brother of the Winged Ones… the Hawk. And so it is that Today is about honoring the Sacred. we are plowing through life and we often forget to stop and just breathe in all that is, honoring all the Directions, all of Creation, our Ancestors and stopping to speak with the Creator. Today is the day to move into a conscious space of doing just that, it is the day of Spiritual Awareness and Connection. So with that said awaken your souls and listen to the guidance of this sacred Winged One…and allow Hawk to assist your souls to sing and be.

Red Tail Hawk shows up to help us understand the meaning in ordinary experiences if open and become aware of our surroundings. The Red Tail Hawk is awakening our souls so that we may begin the journey of our spirituality, preparing us for those Life Lessons that will soon show up.

Red Tail Hawks are messengers of the between, sharing insights and knowledge extended to us from the Ancestors and the world of Spirit. They speak to us of looking from a different vantage point and thus giving us a broader view of any given situation, helping us to not only be aware that a message awaits us, but also helping us to understand those messages.

Red Tailed Hawks are sacred and as they enter our presence, we must honor them by opening our minds and keeping them sharp while we look for wisdom and answers as we walk the human.

The Red Tailed Hawk’s red tail feathers distinguish it from other hawks, and remember that it does not receive their red feathers until at a later point in life after it has matured and experienced life around it. These feathers must be earned. The color Red represents Power and Energy that will lie dormant until it is awakened by our Souls as they walk and journey life and honor its own Sacred Hoop.
