Everything is important in nature--all the creatures of the earth, the things that fly and the things that creep or crawl. With an open heart, we can make a shift from learning about nature to learning from her. Although a gradual process, it can be most rewarding.
For instance, nothing is so annoying as to find ants in the house. Interesting though, I've noticed, in the past, they show up just when I need to practice the art of patience the most...just when I think I can't stand another minute of...whatever...is bugging me. Yesterday was one of those best of days and worse of days, but I'll spare you the details. To my surprise, early this morning, a lone ant appeared on the rim of the tub while I was bathing. Not too big, not too small, but large enough for me to recognize an ant. Patience! With the message delivered, he disappeared.
At breakfast, I told Elliot. Then shared wisdom from Medicine Cards Book on our visitor: Ants are excellent builders and community workers for the good of the Queen and the whole hive. Self-sacrificing, an ant will haul a leaf hundreds of miles back to the anthill. Each one is part of the "group ant consciousness".
When an ant shows up, ask yourself, are you working for the good of all? If so, know the universe wants that goodness to come to you, too. If it hasn't yet appeared, do something creative while you are patiently waiting. Ant "people" know that what is theirs will come to them at the time most needed." They have patience, trusting in the Universe.
Elliot listened and then shared an unusual encounter from yesterday morning. An insect hit him in the nose as it fell from the hallway ceiling. Startled, he looked down and saw a medium sized brown ant on the floor. More patience... Who doesn't need patience these days, but the angels remind us to keep having faith in God and the angels. What is yours will come to you.
Enjoy your day with the Angels, and watch for subtle ways the world reflects your inner life.
Love and joyful blessings,
