Maybe it was just wishful thinking, but I swear I heard a bird singing at daybreak today. Could it possibly mean that spring isn’t as far away as it seems?? Let’s hope that is the case! In the meantime, here is a mini-reading from the Feathered Omen Oracle Card Deck by Ted Andrews. Enjoy!
Sea Gull: Adjust behavior and communication
“Although often seen as pests, gulls are actually wonderful birds. They are shore birds, seldom venturing far from land but always staying close to bodies of water. In particular, they are associated with the oceans and seas. The world of the seas is filled with great mystery, power and magic. Water is the archetypal creative source. It has great power that can bring life, death and rebirth into most areas of your life. Animal messengers associated with this element are often signs that a new rhythm and flow is unfolding around you. This is particularly true of the Sea Gull. The tides are shifting in your favor. A myriad of possibilities are opening to you now – in all areas of your life. In order to take advantage of them though, you must adjust your behavior and communicate in new ways. Now is the time to develop subtleties in your communication and your behavior or opportunities will be lost. Do not force, push or try to argue your way into anything new. It will have the opposite effect and close the door on your efforts. Tone down any bravado and other ostentatious behaviors. That is when others will notice and embrace your efforts.”
Additional Interpretation from Nancy…
When I ask my Guides about this, what I’m hearing is that we are in the process of breaking out of patterns of behavior that are grounded in fear/ego. To do this though, we have to surrender into faith – faith that we are being 100% motivated and guided in each breath. This means that we don’t have to “figure out” how to move forward as we are longing to do. We just have to trust that the motivation to take action will appear when the opportunity to act from our Higher Self presents itself. In the meantime, focus on being very present in where you are and what you are doing. Breathe it in and embrace it fully. Trust that even if it doesn’t seem to relate to your goals, that in truth it is all part of the process. Spring is coming! We just have to let Nature take its course both in the outer world and within our own true nature.
Sending much love to you all!
