About Morning Musings…I asked for some intuitive guidance for today (or whatever day you come upon this). I find it helpful to use the metaphor I’m shown to make the most of my day. I hope you find it helpful too! Here it is…
I see a stream with cool, crystal-clear water. It is moving quickly and feels almost joyful. I see myself scooping up the water and drinking it. It is crisp and invigorating. I see a deer with antlers on the opposite bank. Its fur is beginning to thicken. It feels like a crisp fall day. It watches me as if waiting for me to come to it. I cross the river and touch its neck. The fur is coarse and brittle and I can feel the warmth of the animal’s body on my cold fingers. It turns and I feel it wishes me to follow. We head through the fall woods. I see a hawk flying above us, as if it is leading the way. Eventually, we come to a clearing with a small cabin. Smoke is coming from the chimney. The deer leads me to the door. A Spirit Guide steps out and smiles at me. I hear, “Welcome home.”
How lovely this image is! It feels so fresh and alive! Coming home with the deer (which represents compassion, gentleness and new adventures) with a hawk (spiritual messenger and guide) leading the way, gives this a sense of returning from a long trip with close friends. The fall reference makes me think of a time of harvest and celebration. It also feels like a time to return to one’s center and recharge. The Spirit Guide waiting feels like my closest companion and friend. The fire, the nearby fresh and invigorating water source, all suggest a chance to recharge and refresh our spirits after a long journey.
Today, I intend to recharge my soul. I will drink deeply of all the beauty. I will rest in my own center, knowing I am surrounded by friends. Today, I will allow myself to soak up the joy of being at home, knowing I deserve this rest and respite from my travels. Today, I will soak in the joy of simple pleasures.
I pray it is so, and so it is…
Wishing you all a day filled with joy!
