The Gift of the Detour

Yesterday we had to take a detour on the way home.  I must admit it was self-induced as we were in the wrong lane that ended in a forced right turn.  I commented to Elliot to just go that way.  There must be a good reason. 

We were in a part of town unfamiliar to us.  There were open grassy fields. Traveling along, I spotted a bald eagle flying overhead!  I recognized him by his white head and white tail.  The bald eagle symbolizes heroic nobility and divine spirit.

In Animal-Speak, Ted Andrews writes:  "These eagles are the messengers from heaven and are the embodiment of the spirit of the sun."

What I didn't know is it also symbolizes the rediscovery of the inner child.  "To accept the eagle as a totem is to accept a powerful new dimension to life, and a heightened responsibility for your spiritual growth.  But only through doing so do you learn how to move between worlds, touch all life with healing, and become the mediator and the bearer of new creative forces in the world." 

This is the process we're all going through in different degrees.  We are becoming so much more than we now appear to be.  From a karmic viewpoint, events will now fly faster and the ramifications for everything we think, do, or say ( or fail to think, do, or say) positive and negative will be both stronger and quicker. 

Another wonderful gift from nature appeared in the sky last night.  Maybe you saw the beautiful pinkish halo around the half moon.  The night sky was so clear, the Big Dipper was visible, too.

Enjoy your day with the Angels. Their messages abound in a myriad of wonderful ways.
