A Morning Bird Message
I love these cool fall mornings when the sun is shining, watching the sun come up through the trees in ourback yard as I have my morning tea. To me, there's a sense of cleansing and renewal about it and a magical feeling of excitement. I even caught myself singing the Rogers and Hammerstein classic on my way to the shower, "Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day; I've got a beautiful feeling everything's going my way."
On mornings like this, I sometimes leave the back door in the kitchen open so DC, my cat, can sit half in - half out - in safety but still sniffing the air..... while I have breakfast. This morning I decided to let the door stay open for awhile as I made my way to my office in the back bedroom of our house to begin my work day. After a bit, I noticed that DC was back in his usual morning place in the master bedroom. So I said to him, "Guess I'll go close the door so no critters get in."
As I turned the corner to go into the kitchen, I caught a glimpse of something moving by the kitchen window. I screamed and a bird zipped out of the curtains and flew out the open back door.
I closed the door and as I stood there a few moments trying to ascertain the potential meaning of a bird being in my house, I heard a commotion in the living room. It was another bird frantically trying to get out the front glass door that was NOT open. I went to open that door and the bird flew into the kitchen. So I opened the back door again and the bird flew out.
Hm, I thought.... I did ask for inspiration on what to write for this month's article while I was in the shower.... And just yesterday, I was having a conversation with a client about birds and their meaning - she'd had a bird fly into her house after coming home from her father-in-law's funeral.
So... I looked up bird meanings on the internet. I don't know what kind of bird it was except 'round' and 'brown,' so I had to go with general meanings.
- Free of worry, carefree, light-hearted
- Represent prophetic knowledge
- The soul, transcendence, spirits of air, ascent
- Communication, sight
- Unity, Freedom, Community
All this was interesting.... but what did it mean for me? And most important, what in all this would have meaning for my readers?
Pondering this, I realized this was just like anything else.... You can research and get other people's opinions about things... but ultimately you have to go within and listen to your own guidance. So I did.
What is the meaning of the two birds coming into my house this morning?
Rely on your Spirit - on your intuition. Free yourself from mental worries and concerns. Let your intuition and your connection to source, All-That-Is, guide you. Trust in Spirit - the life force within you - to bring to you all the good things you desire.
Sing the song you were singing in the shower - let that be your theme song - "Oh what a beautiful morning.... I've got a beautiful feeling everything is going my way."
Trust in the power of the universe. Trust in your Higher Power as a Spiritual Being. You ARE a powerful spiritual being. ACT AS IF THIS IS TRUE. It's not just wishful thinking. It goes beyond positive thinking.
You must BE it - embody it - LIVE it - breathe it - do everything as if it is true and it shall be so.
"Have faith and courage. Your prayers are manifesting,
even if they aren't visible yet."
- Doreen Virtue/Angel Numbers # 2
So in closing, I pass this Bird Message on to you.... YOU are a powerful Spiritual Being as well. Trust in Spirit - the life force within you - to bring to you all the good things you desire!
