The Spirit of Hawk
I have always admired hawks, their graceful and angelic flow in flight. 2 weeks ago I noticed for the first time that a lovely mama hawk was perched in one of our trees in the backyard. I was in the midst of struggling with my personal life and to hear her screech in different octaves was extremely soothing to me. I thought of my Medicine Cards/Book – The discover of power through the ways of animals, that I have had for over 33 years. I reached for my book and opened it up to Hawk and began to read. Hawk – Messenger. The first paragraph resonated with me. Hawk is akin to Mercury, the messenger of the gods. Hawk medicine teaches you to be observant to look at your surroundings Observe the obvious in everything that you do. Life is sending you signals. As I kept reading… What is called for here is an intuitive ability to discern the message carried within the cry of Hawk. The shrillness of Hawk’s call pierces the state of unawareness and asks you to seek the truth… and there it was, the truth! Hawk’s cry signalled the need for the beholder to heighten awareness and receive a message. The message, seek and you shall find your truth. I sat and sobed.
The next week I walked into my office and there she was perched on my aspen tree, content and looking at me. I felt connected, and at ease. I thanked her for her visit.
A few days later I heard her baby chicks screeching, ah a nest way up in one of our backyard trees. How blessed I felt to hear such joy, to hear her offspring calling for her. A new beginning, a new life. It was all relevant and connected to my life. Thankful I’am, thankful to Hawk and her beloved babies.
You are only as powerful as your capacity to perceive, receive and to use your intuitive abilities to the best of your capacity. Be bold, be strong, be graceful in your flight.
Seek and you shall find. What is your truth?
