The last two days, this cormorant has been watching over the lake when I passed by to the post office. Usually these long necked divers are serious fisher birds, and haven't been hanging around here much this summer. Cormorants swallow pebbles to achieve their goal. The extra weight helps them to plunge down deep and wait for an unsuspecting fish. Sometimes they are called underwater falcon.
When a bird or animal appears on our path, a large part of the personal message has to do with what was it doing when you first spotted it? Usually, a first intuitive impression brings out the lesson.
With the watchful eye of the cormorant, perched on the "7" water gauge, (the number of completion and perfection), it came to me as a reminder to watch my thoughts today. At times when we are the most tired, depressed or worried, the ego will set a trap to get us to take the bait, and lose our peace in the drama. We may be able to hold our peace 99% of the time, but that one percent that is still a work in progress, is the target of the ego--our Achilles heel.
The "7" Cormorant was on guard, keeping vigil, over the lake, and so today I will silently ask the Holy Spirit to help me see peace instead of whatever is trying to swallow me up.
The cormorant message is about new beginnings. Don't hold on to bad energy (disappointment, resentment, regret) Let them go. All is well. All is well.
Love and peace,
