There are many times that an animal will come into my awareness to bring a special message to my attention. I have learned to pay attention to the messages just as if these animals are guiding me through my present life. Today (March 17, 2015) I had a big message that I wanted to share, as well as the message of the animals in general in regards to the planet.
For instance, a few weeks ago I was talking about animals that may be associated with the dark. What I mean by this is that just as humanity’s template was tampered with, some animals were allowed to be created that are more of a hindrance to humans than a help because they do not fit in to harmonious living. I was giving examples like ants, wasps, scorpions, poisonous snakes, mosquitoes, flies, and moths.I didn’t really realize the power of my words and a little friend came to visit me.
A few hours later, a lone ant crawled across the screen of my laptop, seemingly out of nowhere. I immediately thought there had to be more ants from where that came from, but couldn’t find any more. I decided to look up the metaphysical meaning of ant and it described the worker:
“Encountering an ant you should consider that all good things come with time, and effort. Work with diligence, with conviction, and work with others in order to forge your dreams and turn them into reality. Despite their tiny size these little spirits are immensely strong, great strength of will and accomplishment can come even in the smallest of packages.”
That message was just perfect for me at the time. I also realized that this ant was standing up for all of the ants when I flippantly said I could live without them! I have never had one of these big ants in my house before then.
About three months ago, a lone fly would not stop buzzing around me while I was also working on my computer. It was winter time so flies are not usually seen at all. It landed on the table to where it was right past my screen but directly in my eyesight. I just sat there for a while and watched it rub its tiny little hands together, and I send it thoughts like “hello” and “I’m not going to kill you so you are safe”. “What message to do you have for me?” As I sat with the fly, I realized how this little fly really did not understand that it did not need to be in my house. Eventually I opened the back door and shoo’d it outside. I looked up the meaning for the fly:
“Know that quick and abrupt changes in your thoughts, emotions and endeavors are afoot. Rapid changes in all aspects of your life are currently happening for you so be prepared to move quickly even in unfavorable and uncomfortable conditions. Fly can also signify an exponentially growing source of abundance is available for you right now. Use your keen eyesight to see the way. Never give up.
Alternatively a fly could be reminding you that your persistence in reaching your goals will bare fruit sooner than later. Even if it means annoying others or being selfish for a while – you do have the ability to accomplish your goals.”
A whole lot of things have happened since that time and I feel like everything is indeed happening very fast!
After the fly came to visit, I had a visit from a ladybug. I was working on my house in order to get it ready to sell. I was not having much fun painting some cabinets and I would have rather been writing articles. I was on my knees and the countertop was at eye level, and I turned my head away for a second or two, and when I turned back there was a lone ladybug that appeared out of nowhere. I just sat and looked at it for a while and I got my phone out to search the meaning right then, as it was unusual to see a ladybug in the winter much less in the house.
“The appearance of a Ladybug heralds a time of luck in which our wishes begin to be fulfilled. Higher goals and new heights are now possible. Worries begin to dissipate. New happiness comes about. Ladybug also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. Let things flow at their natural pace. In the due course of time, our wishes will all come true. Alternatively she could be signalling that you can leave your worries behind and that new happiness is on its way. Ladybug signals you to to not be scared to live your own truth. Protect your truth and know that it is yours to honor.”
I had been daydreaming of the house selling so I would be able to afford to take a trip across the US to spend time with Mother Nature as well as to have small talks to some of my Facebook friends. Although I wanted to sell the house right away, my trip was greatly delayed because I showed the home at least 15 times but no one made an offer for several months. I eventually did get a contract on my house and I now look back and see that the way it all unfolded was for this one couple who was meant to have my house but the woman was in the hospital and could not come back to see it until she got out.
I am planning that trip after all and the timing seems to work out better in the end!
Today was one of the first days I have worked with the back door open. A huge swarm of grackles came into my back yard and I watched them for a while. They would get spooked when I opened the door but eventually I was able to video some of the sounds I was hearing. It sounded a bit like excitement.
I looked up the metaphysical meaning of the grackle:
“Keynote: Overcoming Excess and Emotional Life Congestion
Cycle of power: Early spring
Although the grackle is often considered part of the blackbird family, along with crows and starlings, it actually is not. It is part of the meadowlark and oriole family of birds. It is a large black bird with an extra-long tail. About its head and shoulders are iridescent feathers that change from blue to green to purple or bronze, depending on the light.
This coloring often reflects a need for those to whom the grackle comes to look at what is going on in their life differently. It says that situations are not what they appear to be and you may not be looking at them correctly–particularly anything dealing with the emotions.
Keep in mind that black is the color of the inner and the feminine. The purple and bronze coloring about the head especially usually indicates that emotions are coloring our thinking process. The grackle can help us to correct this.
During courting season, the male grackle will fold its tail, creating a diamond-like trough. This diamond shape is often reflective of activation. It hints at a need to become active in regards to emotional situations. Have we been too passive in our emotions? Are we simply rehashing and talking about them without doing anything to correct the emotional situations in our life? The grackle is a noisy, chattering bird and may be a reminder to quit talking and *do* something.
Grackles are very sociable birds as well. It is not unusual to find people that are in the midst of unbalanced emotional states constantly narrating and rehashing the conditions in every social situation. It can be therapeutic to speak of problems, but many social occasions do nothing but aggravate the conditions and feelings surrounding them. Again it can reflect we may be talking about things too much and not doing something about them.
Grackles have inside their mouths on the hard palate a keel which helps them cut open acorns and eat them. We have often heard the expression, “It’s a tough nut to crack.” Well, this reflects the role a grackle can serve as a totem. Dealing constructively with our emotions and those people and things in our life which aggravate them can be a tough nut to crack. The grackle can show us how best to do this.
Grackles love to live in pine trees. Pine trees are very therapeutic to emotional states. In a form of homeopathic medicine known as flower essences, the essence of pine can be used to help alleviate strong emotional states, particularly feelings of guilt. Again this reflects the grackle showing up as a sign to help you clear the emotions.”
I took a little short video of the grackles and if you click the link below you can open it with your media player:
So the reason this was so appropriate is that I had just been on the phone with two people about having to talk to a person who has been out of my life for over a year now. I have some important news for this person that could become something much bigger as far as bringing new technology to the planet. I think the birds were telling me to get on with the show!
On a bigger scale, I feel like the grackles are feeling everyone’s excitement as well as the chaotic emotions on the planet associated with change. As many of you know, we are in an accelerated time on the planet where everyone will be faced with emotions and energy that need to be addressed. There is no running from them or drowning them out any more. Open your heart space and let them flow through. If you connect with the planet, she will make it easier for you and will remind you that you are never alone, we all have help through guides and beings on the other side of the veil.
I cannot stress enough the importance of being more aware with mother nature and connecting to the animal spirits. I really hope we can heal and keep all the animals, even the pesky wasps, flies, ants, etc. and communicate with them to ask them not to bite us or live in our homes. Many of the animals are suffering at this time at the hands of man and man’s dark agenda to poison the planet. The problem really isn’t with the animals, it is with humans. Everyone and everything has a chance to move forward, and it will be interesting to see who and what is able to with the help of others.
If you cannot physically go out to spend time in Mother Nature, you can always visit my Facebook group Watch Mother Nature, where anyone is invited to post photos and videos that will ground and remind of us what a beautiful world we live in.
