I want to talk about Eagles… They are definitely my power animal. But I am not a expert or animal whisperer in any way shape or form. I always want to share insights about eagle medicine when it comes, but something always stops me. I think I get scared, if I'm to be completely honest. The old “who am I’ to offer insights raises its head and I'm like: "What the fuck do I know"? Something we can all relate to, no doubt.
Eagle came into my life about 6 years ago (fully) because I took my head out my arse and paid attention!
In my dreams and in the Physical. Bringing big medicine with him. He has been a constant in my life and sometimes I don’t honour the wisdom he offers.. I take him for granted and forget the wisdom he brings.
Last weekend, I finally got it..
I mean deep down in the visceral, in my bones, in my gut. If I thought I got before, I was dreaming. Ya gotta understand in my defence when he graces me with his presence I am often just in Awe.
11 eagles came to visit. The last one came very close to check me out, and then flew very high in a very casual manner. As I watched him depart, I saw him rise and rise and he truly gave no fucks about what was going on below .
Yes he scans and checks out ,what's cracking below. He visits mother earth and the tree's, but ultimately he belongs to the skies.
As I watched him, I got it and truly the message was “no fucks given”.
(Hey, I swear like a wharfie, he knew I would get that)
If you Google what Eagle means in the Totem/ spiritual world the terminology is often: higher perspective, wisdom, rise above and so on and so on.
Yeah I get it, but it needed it to be said in a way that I would understand.
In times of turmoil and when we are not sure, we often forget to look at the bigger picture, as we get bogged down in life. We forget to look up and see the beauty all around us.
The Eagle still has to hunt and live, as we mere humans do. But he also knows how to be free. He knows when to let shit go and fly high above it all. Do you think he cares what other eagles think of him? He’s got places to go and places to be. He is the King of the sky. Not in an arrogant way, in a” just got my shit sorted” way.
If we could take a leaf from his book, the unnecessary, self imposed restrictions we place on ourselves daily would drop away. We are so truly hard on ourselves.
If we allow ourselves time to be and de stress from the mundane every once in while.
We might be able to glimpse the sky and know it's ok. We are fine and the solar king remind's us of this by truly honouring his path and himself.
We all need a little reminding, that even in the darkest of times, we have the ability to connect to the divine (ourselves).
