Have you ever heard a woodpecker's song? Known for their drumming beaks, I didn't even know they could sing until a loud bird call broke the silence in our backyard one day. To my surprise, a BIG bright red headed pileated woodpecker swooped down on the branch of an old orange tree. His song resembled the laugh of Woody Woodpecker, the cartoon character.
Woodpeckers tend to cross my path whenever I'm getting ready to make a change, or in the midst of transformation that calls for radical trust.
Early this morning, the loud call of a bird, rang through the open porch window. Hei-Hei, our tabby, ran to take a look. Together we saw a large red headed pileated woodpecker on the utility post in front of our house. His bright red hair stood on end like a mohawk. We watched him peck away at the wooden pole, a call to wake up!
I ran for my camera, but when I opened the door, he flew down the street.
The pileated woodpecker beats out a message to follow your own unique rhythm. Be wary of others trying to nudge you into a rhythm that isn't comfortable for you. It's time to trust your own instincts-- even if you don't quite understand them. Do what works in the manner best for you as the foundation is there to move in any direction. Take your thoughts and give them action. It is safe for you to do so.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and joyful blessings,
