Listening to our messages…

20120506-215149.jpg

I have noticed lately, every time I sit down to write out a blog, a reading, or just meditate I have a companion with me. My 15 year old cat; sox. He doesn’t really like to have me take time out and pet him (unless it’s on his stomach) he does however like to to be right next to me. He makes my heart smile.

I have been thinking today on symbolism again…it seems I have been hit with so much of it lately.
Just yesterday my husband and I took our motorcycle out for a beautiful ride in the foothills. The weather was perfect. We usually see a lot of the native animals in our area such as deer, elk, hawks and eagles…but yesterday…well…we saw an animal we have not seen in the wild here before, and we had a weird experience with some Bee’s. Let’s start with seeing what we believe to have been a wild turkey.

Again i will remind you that this… is very out of the ordinary around here. He was just standing along side the road…by himself. It was the craziest thing. We even did a U-turn to see if it was really what we saw, and yep…it was a wild turkey!

The following is an excerpt taken from what’s your sign.com

“When the turkey visits us it is a sign that we must be mindful of the blessings bestowed upon us each day. Further, it is a message to express our strength and brilliance – it’s time to show our own plumage and reveal true selves.”

Reveal our true selves…seems like a reoccurring message in my life lately.

The other bizzar experience we had was while we were riding towards home, at the end of our ride. We were just enjoying the ride when… BAM! We are pelted with Bee’s…it had to be 20 or more! Big…bees, bumble bees. I was hit with a bunch that just bounced off me….and about 6 that actually stuck to me, that I had to brush off…my husband was equally as pelted by the Bee’s. I was lucky and was behind him, he actually had to block his face from the swarm that we obviously drove through. Weird…very weird. What i was able to find on Bee symbolism boiled down to this…

“If a Bee has shown up in your life, examine your own productivity.
Are you doing all you can to make your life more fertile?
Are you busy enough?
Are you making time to savor the honey of life and not becoming a workaholic?”
They are also known for accomplishing the impossible…

Both these hold a lot of meaning in my life right now…. I am grateful to the universe for reminding me I am not alone…and I am on the right path..Maybe next time….you don’t need to hit me with a spray of bees? Or…maybe I could listen better and have heard the message the first 20 times…

I think my goal this month is to look for the messages and symbolism in my daily life…each and every day this month. Symbolism is out there, we just have to pay attention.

Have a great evening and a wonderful tomorrow.

Sox is telling me it is time to stop typing, he keeps pawing my fingers down and then resting his head on my hand. I love my little friend!!! Good night.

P.s.
I just picked up my iPad to blog…and…opened my wordpress app…and this was here…..my missing blog. Do you understand my surprise? I have blogged since it was lost…it was gone…and now…it’s just here, up…open…ready for me to publish…
WOW…I need to find the message.

  1. Hey CG,
    We are on similar paths I swear!! Thanks for writing about this, the message is for me as well, and I hear you.
    You have a cat named Sox? I have a dog named Soxxy. nice!
    I have also been getting the message lately that others are waiting (in a holding pattern of sorts) for me to do what I am supposed to do, so they can in turn do what they are supposed to do. In a conversation the other day someone told me that you can’t keep hiding your light – about someone else – but the way I heard it, it stood out of the conversation as if bathed in white light. I actually thanked him for saying it, because I needed to hear it. So I am saying it to you too – you can’t keep hiding your light. Namaste!

  2. I have been noticing that the animals and insects are now making their presence known unlike I’ve ever seen before. They really want us drawing power from our own internal natures. We are suppose to be assuming our cat-like independence, our turkey sense of pride and awareness, and our bee-like abilities to get productive in collaborative efforts. Its a new day and age. The animals are handing over the reigns. It’s time for humanity to take on the stewardship of maintaining the balance of nature on the planet. That means invoking our animal natures and creating a different reality then the one currently running. So we should get used to being the “wild things” and see what we can’t stir up. Enjoy – From the “Busy Bee.”
