Her eyes slowly opened and her gaze was soft, still coming back to presence. We both sat with our legs crossed facing each other on the Thai mat. Outside, the cold wind pressed against the windows, but inside, the room was warm and still. I waited for her to meet my gaze, and we laughed together as a burst of energy she had been holding in let go. I wanted to hear the details of her journey, but I waited for her to be ready and fully back in the room.
When she was ready, she spoke of the jungle she saw in her mind, the journey to a lush and wild place where a jaguar (her spirit animal) had come to her and they basically chilled for a bit until another animal showed up. A guide- this time an eagle.
The eagle gave her tasks to complete, mostly physical, and would help her in the beginning and then let her go. She would look back as if to ask for help, and the eagle would tell her to trust herself. Several times the eagle would assist her and then basically let her go, giving her the message to trust her own strength, her own efforts.
My client felt this surge of confidence after this journey and the eagle’s message. This client is on a healing path, and currently about to take a huge step to move across the country. The question I gave her to ask at the beginning of her journey was this: “What do I need to know right now for my highest good and wellbeing?” The message she received was from a very powerful source indeed.
The eagle is mankind’s connection to the divine because it flies higher than any other bird. Eagle conveys the powers and messages of the spirit; it not only signals a new beginning, but provides that person with the stamina and resilience to endure the difficulties. If eagle has appeared, it bestows freedom and courage to look ahead. And, in this case, a message of self-trust.
In what areas of your life can you use eagle energy? Where can you connect to this courage and stretch your limits to take flight?
