I woke up this morning wondering what the heck I was going to write about today.
Then, I remembered one of the things I’ve learned is that we can access information from sources outside our own little head. And I just have to trust that. Especially when I’m trying to come up with new ideas, like this morning!
So I went on my walk as usual. And…low and behold…my idea literally came to me.
As I was walking home, I caught a movement out of the corner of my eye. And when I turned to see what it was, I saw “my hawk.” I say “my hawk” because hawk has been my totem animal for about 34 years. He is my spiritual guide and sends me messages whenever I need them. I even have the book “Animal Speak Pocket Guide” which I often refer to because I know the animals have a messages for me.
I believe these sources of guidance and inspiration – like the Tarot Cards, the IChing, Animal Wisdom – are all ways for us to access our own Higher Guidance.
That’s exactly what happened for me today. I already knew what Hawk’s was telling me, before I read my little book.
When I saw first saw him, my hawk was on the ground, which is rare. I usually see him way up in the clouds, sailing around.
But he was on the ground today and I saw that it took a lot of effort for him to take off. Because he is big. And there wasn’t a lot of updraft today. It was very still.
I had the privilege of watching him navigate his take-off. At first he had to fly very close to the ground, and then he had to navigate and dodge between all the trees. He disappeared, but I could see his trajectory and guess where he would pop out – and sure enough, he did. He was higher up but still working hard to gain altitude.
And then…the magic happened.
That’s when I could see the updraft catch his wings…and-he-soared! No more effort…he just soared. And then I could hear him screeching his joy! Because he had made it!
For me it was a very clear message, that I am on a mission, to reach as many people as I can – like you.
And encourage as many people as I can – like you.
To STOP Day dreaming and START DAREDREAMING!
Start moving towards your dreams.
Yes, it may be hard sometimes, and there may be obstacles to navigate around and you’ll have to work. But guess what? The good news is…once you reach the right altitude…you-get-to-soar!
So, if you’re ready to soar – give me a call – and together, we’ll do exactly that!
