Hawk - Messenger

Today we meet Hawk from the Temple of Balance Oracle Cards (©Lee-Anne Peters).

For me, this card's caption fits perfectly with my associations to the bird depicted.  Eagle-eyed, with a perspective that allows an oversight of any situation, and bringing messages from spirit, Hawk flies high, then dives down to share experience and whispers from around the world and from the spirit realm.

The message for today, then, is to pay attention to everything around us, and to be open to spirit speaking to us.  This makes me think of the wonderful spiritual mountain walks which Emma Sunnerton-Burl organises.  If anyone is lucky enough to be in Wales...  However, even if we can't be led by someone to explore nature, perhaps we can take the time to listen to spirit in our own way, whatever that may be.

Today, I am going to a spa with a dear friend.  Although it is a man-made environment, spirit's messages can come in many ways - what is most important is a willingness to stop and listen, to pay attention.  Having a day of pampering and good conversation, I shall try to hear what I need to know right now.

I am grateful for a day that starts with such good omens.


  1. I hope that you've had a lovely day and wonder whether Hawk put in an appearance :-)

    Agree about Emma's spiritual mountain walks - definitely if I'm in Wales, I'm going!

    Lovely image on this card! Ali x

  2. Hi Ali,

    Well, I did manage to listen to myself, for a change - I didn't exercise after I got back as I felt as limp as a noodle (plus I had swum lengths for 55 minutes - not the weights workout I'd planned, but not to be sniffed at). Had a lovely time.

    I really like this image, too, Hawk looks sharp but wise :)
