I noticed a bird yesterday… following the road above my car. It was a beautiful Black Raven, he was weaving in and out to avoid the tree tops but definitely following the road. For awhile he was above us then in front of us, he was a big and beautiful Raven. Even with his occasional sway you could tell that he was on such a sure mission. Instead of creating a flight pattern of his own he was following the road below him, laid out in front of us both. Captivated by his distinct direction, I started to contemplate the symbolism.
It seemed to confirm and assure me that I was on the right path. Headed in the right direction. To not doubt or turn back just because somethings seems to be blocking your way. That even when it looks like I am no longer in the clear, to remember to be flexible enough to not be knocked off course by the occasional stray branch. To forge ahead, all the while remembering to go with the ebb and flow of life.
This is a good message. Some thing we all can take a look at in our own lives. Where are you on your proverbial path? Are you still headed in the right direction? All the intentions you have been setting, are they in your best interest? Are you keeping in mind that what we ponder and intend today will directly affect the direction we continue in tomorrow?
I have pondered these things a lot lately. I have found that I have hesitantly moved into unfamiliar yet passionate territory. All the while wondering am I moving in the right direction? I have noticed that with the best intentions I have seemingly chosen to take baby steps. These steps have allow me to change direction at any time. They have also allowed me to inched myself forward, but not with the vigilance that I now know I need to emit.
Looking up at this often regarded dark bird confirmed the magic of it all. It ignited the confidence that I needed to be awakened.
I read somewhere that the Raven, in accordance with Celtic symbolism, is believed to be a sign that something special, but unexpected will happen. Something is yet to come. What arrives depends solely on us. I know that I want change. I am ready to move in the direction that calls to my heart. My first intention for the new year will be to share my light, expand my gift by not filtering. Happily I will follow this path, and eventually when the path is no longer there(or no longer needed) I will create my own.
Have a wonderful week! Happy belated Thanksgiving to all my followers, I am incredibly thankful for each and every one of you. Besides my Facebook followers(friends) I have almost reached 100 followers. This is truly amazing to me. Thank you for listening, and thank you for sharing your thoughts and opening me up to your blogs.
Lots of Love~
