Winging Their Way to Victory - White Ibis


This morning, the angels of nature presented a beautiful gift at sunrise.  A large flock of  two dozen or more white ibis, suddenly appeared in the sky, flying east in "V" formation.   It happened so fast there was no time for a picture, but this image gives a touch of the glory of that special moment. 

The golden sunlight, reflecting off their wide opened wings, spread a touch of wonder to a celestial blue sky.

 Mostly the ibis that cross our path are grounded, pecking for food in the pasture or at the lake.  So this rare V-flight formation was a beautiful symbol of what is to come.  A "V" formation signals new opportunities on the horizon, and their directional arrow < was pointing east, toward the sunrise.   The finale of their exhibition was a long stream of white wings, flying in single file, following the "V" sign, like an airplane ad banner across the blue sky.  Victory!

What joy to catch a glimpse of their awesome flight as we looked out the window watching them soar above the treetops.  A message, perhaps, to keep our own thoughts on higher consciousness to stay on course, and head for the horizon of a "new day". 

In her book, Angel Messages, Claire Nahmad, writes about the ibis:

"If the ibis draws close to you, a spiritual call is sounding your name.  You have been chosen to enter into a new and elevated spiritual understanding."

 A wonderful, inspirational message for us all at this hour.  Thank you, Angels.

Love and peace,
