Hawk Blessing

Recently a hawk flew over me on the bridge entering Balboa Park. I have never seen a hawk so close. I felt it was a blessing, so I looked up what it meant.

“The hawk is a messenger bird. Usually when we see a hawk it means to pay attention because a message is coming to you. Hawks represent clear sightedness, being observant, our far memory and guardianship. They also bring courage, wisdom, illumination, creativity and truth. Hawks give us the ability to see the larger picture in life. They can help you to overcome problems and make wise use of opportunities. How does this all happen? Each animal carries what we call ‘medicine’. What I have written above is the hawks medicine. When the same animal keeps coming to you in real life or in a dream, it is bringing it’s medicine to you. You will be brought a message soon, a good one, to let you know you are on the right path. And whatever problems you are wrestling with, you will solve because hawks medicine has been given to you. I know this because I am a traditional Shawnee (American Indian) and I’ve learned these things are true.

 I found the above beautiful essay here: https://reedofgod.wordpress.com/2011/06/30/what-does-it-mean-when-a-hawk-comes-to-you/

May this hawk blessing also extend to you, dear reader. I would be interested to hear your own medicine animal stories!

Raven, owl, turtle, dragonfly and wolf are my spirit animals. We can all have more than one, and most likely do, or we have different ones at different stages of our lives. Spirit animals bring us so much joy, insight, wisdom, and challenges too! (The good kind) I hope you will still be posting here, as I do believe I just discovered your magical place in cyberspace. Blessings galore to you and your fine feathered ally :-), MW

I have more than one spirit animal. Most of us have more than one, or different ones come to us at different times in our lives. Mine are wolf, owl, turtle, raven, and dragonfly. Each has their own magic. I hope you'll come to blogging soon. Peace and wholeness, MW

Thank you, mw. I keep hoping to revive this blog, but find myself writing by pen and paper instead. My hand and heart prefer it that way. All in good time...
