Drumming a New Song: An Angel Message

This BIG beautiful pileated woodpecker sang out at lunch time yesterday, heralding his rare appearance.  An unusual call, I wasn't sure what it was until I saw his wings span over the fence.  To my delight, he lit on the old orange tree where a praying angel statue stands.  I stopped eating and hurried inside to grab my phone for a photo. 

His bright red crested head hammered  up and down the tree trunk making a loud noise.  Once I captured the moment, and thanked him for his message, he flew off in the sunshine.  But more was to come.  Soon a half a dozen smaller red headed woodpeckers glided through the garden to the wooden bird feeder. One by one, swooping down from the trees, they grabbed a bite to eat.  What fun to watch the woodpeckers on parade, joining us for lunch.  I knew this was an angel message, but what? 

One of the signals of the pileated woodpecker is to follow your own unique rhythm.  Be wary of others trying to nudge you into a rhythm that is not comfortable for you.  It's time to trust your own instincts even if you do not quite understand them.  Do what works in the manner best for you as the foundation is there.  Take your thoughts and give them action.  It is safe for you to do so. 

Take flight and keep praying for guidance.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and joyful blessings,


Rae Karen
