There's a reason the eagle appeared to me Sunday morning .... a gentle reminder to me that I have the inner strength and wisdom to face whatever lies ahead of me. I am not my body. I am not any diagnosis that may be presented to me as I meet with doctors and undergo procedures and tests and possible surgeries in the coming weeks/months.
The eagle teaches us how to go through life without becoming attached to anything, how to accept what comes our way and see everything as a gift from the universe. With their acute hearing they hunt as much by ear as by sight.
The eagle is an incredibly patient being, often perching in a tree, holding the same position for hours on end. May i learn from the wisdom and patience of the eagle who blessed me with its presence on Sunday morning ...
Dear eagle: thank you for showing up Sunday morning. Thank you for reminding me that my strength and healing come from within. Thank you for reminding me to be patient. May your spirit remain with me as we meet with my surgeon later this morning to discuss the lump in my breast.
