So today “Spirit” says lets shake it up a bit by sharing 3 cards with everyone, and then lets see if they listen or not.
The first card that drops is intertwined with our Spiritual needs and is the Eagle! Today is all about taking care of the spiritual side of things that we all may be neglecting because we are so caught up in the world around us. The Eagle soars close to Creator and brings us the message to not only take time… but to MAKE time to feed our spiritual self. We all need to remember this is important to our health and balance. It is not merely enough to talk the talk, we must ALL walk the walk. Stay strong within our own Sacred Hoops by remembering to honor ourselves and all things Sacred!
Squirrel stops in to chatter in my ears today to tell us to tend to our Own needs and houses. Stop looking at everyone else’s and clean up our own messes! Set our own lives to order is the task that Squirrel is reminding us to do as he parades past us with the Eagle! Gather the tools and wisdom you need to get that task done and then move forward in positives, leaving the clutter and negatives behind you to filter through the compost pile to be birthed to positives at another time. Squirrel reminds us… Release, Recycle, Renew!
Then the Bear steps up to remind us we need to rest, to allow our souls to do all of the above and more! Honor those directions! Honor all that is Sacred! Learn to walk on our paths and enjoy life as it was meant to be enjoyed. Look at even the smallest joys, miracles… for they are all part of the great world we live in. Take time to appreciate what we already have, rather than plundering what we truly don’t need at the moment. All in it’s perfect time, with Faith and patience the Bear reminds us we have got this walk on this good road we are living.
Eagle speaks to us of our spiritual paths. I have been taught that the Eagle can fly to the heavens, that its wings can be touched by God Creator. When in it’s presence I feel the Grace of the Creator and All that is Sacred. The Eagle humbles me.
Teaching us to reflect and pause, to rejoice and reconnect to our spirits. To honor our paths, the ethics we have been taught. To Pray, to honor to live in a sacred manner. To listen to our Ancestors that have walked before us and in doing so listen to the wisdoms that have been shared so that we can walk more positive paths. Eagles the symbol of Courage and strength, to do … to walk… the right manner. To take that courage and step into what you re meant to step to in a positive way, and allowing our spirits to soar to the heights to share in God Creator’s extended grace.
Eagles with their sharp eyesight take us to the heights to observe situations in a manner that is more beneficial for us to make clear decisions. To become that visionary and push ourselves to discover and accept self, to accept truths, adapting , changing and growing along the way. The medicine Eagle shares is, the ability to connect to the Divine, a power of God Creator. Being able to place one foot into the spirit realm and yet remain connected and balanced with Mother Earth. So Honor your Spirit today and everyday by connecting with the Sacredness around you!
Squirrel reminds us today of one major lesson and that is to remember always that “We reap what we have sown.” No matter how hard sometimes we try to forget our part in something, a relationship that has hit a bump in the road or a job issue that you are struggling at, or something positive like many blessings showing up at your door, the outcomes always have an imprint from us as it traveled around and back to us. Why we ask? The Squirrel replies, “Because we are all related!”
It also tells us to prepare for change, for if we are working hard to achieve something it will undoubtedly involve change of some kind, and often we forget that part and are caught unprepared. Squirrel also reminds us that through the changes things that no longer serve us, people that no longer are on the same path as us may get lost from us on the way. But we need to remember that they all had purpose and honor whatever lesson or purpose that may have been, and discard any of them including worries, stress and thoughts as you walk forward. Squirrel teaches us that we need to be resourceful at times in order to manifest what we need. Don’t attempt to do to many things at once, rather try and keep a healthy balance between work and play it helps our mental states stay healthy.
Make sure we are paying attention to opportunity that may present itself, share and play nice with others, but to remember in doing so to not forget to take care of ourselves in that process. So break out of your shell today and take care of what you need to , whether that is play or work… but always with a positive breath!
Bear is all about fertility (creative and manifestation), instinct, protection and solitude. Those that walk with Bear are often somewhat reclusive requiring a great deal of personal space to renew and create. Bear people will often “disconnect” for awhile as they pursue projects becoming deeply involved in what they are working on. Deeply protective and territorial, Bear also is extremely loyal and dependable. Bear teaches us when healing of any sort is needed to use that time for introspective work in order to grow Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally and find answers to problems within yourself. Travel deep into your soul find the purpose in your own path and journey and walk ahead in positive steps.
Bear shares with us that in this time hibernation is not only good but needed, yet respect our natural hibernation cycle and remember to reawaken in the spring, in doing so awaken the potential within ourselves and the power of our unconscious mind. Bear teaches us there is a time for playfulness and a time to be assertive, and perhaps a time for both in balance.
