Different animals embody all of our good and not so good qualities and can be very helpful in shining a torch on one’s blindspots.
As well as highlighting one’s talents.
To access all of one’s gifts one must become a balanced human being by developing all sides of oneself.
In 2015 Eagle arrived on my shoulder, confirmed in 2017 as my Dreaming, a totem or power animal in Australian Aboriginal lore.
So I began wondering:
“What is this bird trying to teach me?”
Lightness of spirit, freeing of consciousness
Check diet, metabolic rate and digestion
Eat more often and smaller amounts
overall health and growth
Lots of fresh air – walking, breathing exercises
developing intuitive discrimination
directions of time – past/present/future
flexibility in thoughts and perceptions
massage and stretches
have I been too inflexible?
Am I afraid to see what’s ahead or behind me?
Am I ready to open to new vision and realms?
Three (3) : Creativity & new birth
3 eyelids – new vision
Learn to recognise and utilise the natural currents of life
Expend less energy and accomplish more
Soar, coast, sail
Birds of prey migrate when necessary, but only as far as necessary 🙂
Recognise weather changes – and create your own (carry responsibility!)
Air and East = Creativity, inspiration, higher awareness
Air = Powers of the mind, new wisdom, higher intuition
The power of self-mastery through appropriate use of strength of will
Symbol for the unity of all things – links Heaven and Earth
Expansion of mind with one quality above all: Weitsicht (long/wide vision)
Do not get bogged down; soar above the mundane drama of own heart and being, coast along, aware of what’s happening in all 7 directions, not just what is nagging at heart and soul.
