Later that morning while out for a walk in the neighborhood with my husband, we heard the drumming of a a beautiful red-headed woodpecker. Suddenly, he swooped down from the stately palm tree and flew over our heads, crossing our path. His sudden appearance seemed so deliberate, that I was moved to look up the symbolism of the woodpecker: Drumming on the tree affirms a new rhythm playing in our life, one that will eliminate our worries and allow success to take root in us. The beginning of something new is happening; new dimensions are opening up.
Unlike other birds, the woodpecker's flight pattern is different. A message that it is important to listen and pursue endeavors unique to us. Doing things the old way will no longer work, nor will doing them the way others have done them. Now is the time to plan for the future in the manner best for us.
This message seems to apply to all of us, as we open our hearts and our minds to an awareness of our infinite source of being through God's Love.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
