Osprey Message: A Gift from the Angels

This past week I had a silent retreat at Saint Augustine at the Double Tree Hotel.  The Holy Spirit prompted me to spend time in solitude, recharging my batteries from the challenges that had presented themselves in 2014 to help me grow spiritually.

I was so grateful to have taken the time to go inward, but I had company.  A lone osprey appeared outside my window, sharing lunch time with me.  He spent most of the day and rested in the sunset after a fish dinner.

Ospreys are often called fish-hawks, and this one was a good teacher for me.  He stayed vigilant looking for the right opportunity coming his way and then went after it.  The symbolism of the osprey in Animal-Speak, is about asserting new efforts.  "Check your commitment to others and theirs to you.  Now is the time for active and fearless hunting."

I liked that angel message. The past is over and with the new year dawning, it is definitely a time to assert new efforts.  By following our heart, we will find new beginnings unfolding to share our spiritual gifts.

Enjoy your day with the Angels.

Love and blessings,
