Sand hill Cranes - An Angel Message on Creativity

An angel message appeared on my path after a rough sleepless night as my ego bombarded me with fearful thinking..  My mom had a set-back and had fractured her ankle in a fall. Not up to seeing a podiatrist to be fitted for a boot, she wanted to postpone the appointment,  I didn't push her.  Mom had told the nurse at assisted living that she was going to be passing on that day. Since late June, it has appeared that she may be nearing her time. More than ready; she's upset that she is still here.

So during the night my ego filled my mind with guilt for not forcing Mom to see a foot doctor. I began to worry rather than have faith.  I affirmed the truth as best I could, telling myself that Mom is not her body but a spiritual being. Her inner wisdom knows what she needs. God is Love. Rather than focus on any discomfort Mom may be feeling, I asked the angels to enfold her in God's Love as well as all those who have ever loved her in this physical realm. Soon, I feel back to a peaceful sleep.

When I called Assisted Living, the next morning the change in her was amazing.  She was perky and anxious to keep her foot appointment tomorrow.  I learned when negative thoughts get a foothold in your mind, kick them out and shut the door; or even better yet; don't let it in at all!  A constant form of wakeful prayer as you go about your day makes all the difference.

After hanging up with Mom, a Sand hill crane family of three strolled down our street, passing by our house early this morning. A car honked and  I ran for my camera.  A funny thing happened--they walked right by this warning post of a stop sign ahead. The arrow pointing up, was a message for me to stop negative thinking and look up!

In Animal-Speak, author Ted Andrews writes: "If the crane has shown up in your life as a totem, it could very well reflect that you are about to recover what had almost become extinct within you."

The crane is a bird of the waters (they were heading for the reservoir.) as such they can often teach you how to express your own feminine energies. They represent longevity and creation through focus. The red color in the head area of the Sand hill crane signifies an awakening to new mental faculties--which I'd done turning my thoughts on upward wings..

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
