Take a Breath and Have Fun

On my way out the door this morning, an angel thought reminded me to grab my camera. I was thankful to be prepared when this little lizard peeked out of the dolphin's blow hole.  The patient little fellow posed for a closeup shot.

This is the season where angels speak loudest through nature. I looked up the symbolism of the dolphin and the lizard.  In Animal-Speak, Ted Andrew writes: "when dolphin shows up it is time to breathe some new life into yourself.  Get out, play, explore and most of all breathe."

And lizard is symbolic of detachment. Lizard often saves its life by breaking off its tail so it has time to flee from its predator.  A message that sometimes we must detach part of ourselves from others in order to accomplish what we need to do.  Lizard energy can help us break from the past and explore new realms, but we must follow our own intuition now.

The lizard is also associated with dream time and with the psychic and the intuitive, a heightened sensitivity.  Dreams often contain subtle perceptions which we may not be conscious of, that can give us insight and solutions.

Take a deep breath, let go of the past and enjoy this beautiful autumn in nature.

Joyful Blessings,
