Three Friends


Today I ran across three friends, the owl, the turtle and the egret.  Well, actually I saw the owl the other night perched upon a post outside my apartment.  Today I almost ran over a large turtle sauntering lazily across the parking lot.  And at the cafe I was approached by an egret.  While these creatures are not uncommon down here in Florida, they seemed to be ‘up close and personal’ and so I decided to look into the messages they were giving me.

owlThe owl is an age-old symbol of wisdom and intuition.  It is the ability to see what is hidden to most.  It is a symbol of the practice of discernment.  A quiet observation of our surroundings.  The ability to know what is going on beneath the surface in others, in spite of their words or actions.  I am slowly trusting the wisdom of my intuition, in regards to others in my life.  To sense what is going on beneath the surface.  They may appear to be doing and saying the right things, they may be sweet, generous, and attentive, but if I am feeling something is not in balance, I need not respond.  They may have very personal motives which are generated from a place of feeling unfulfilled, and consequently there may be a feeding going on.

The owl is also alerting me that I am being seduced by the fears of my own mind, rather than trusting the wisdom and intuition of my very soul.


The turtle is a symbol of adapting to new surroundings and environments, while maintaining a comfortable self-pace.  Not to push self too fast.  All things come in perfect and divine timing.  Patience.  It retreats into its shell to protect itself from negativity and there strengthens itself to prepare to re-emerge.  It goes inside to find peace  It opens itself up to imagination and intuition, where anything is possible.  It symbolizes longevity and immortality, and reminds us that the way to heaven is through the earth.  So it may be time for me to just be, to retreat into my spiritual center.  To be at peace with where I am at and to be in the moment.

IMG_1300The egret is a creature that has one foot in the water and one on land.  It goes with the flow, and is comfortable in spaces that are neither here nor there.  And that is the space that I find myself in now, that so many of us find ourselves in now…the place of no man’s land….the in between space where we are not yet feeling the love and support from our soul to the degree we want, yet we are no longer on solid ground with our old life.  So it is a message to me , to just be at peace with this space.  That this is just a transitional place.

Reminders To Us All

During these times it is easy to get swept up in a feeling of being out of control of our life, since we have kept a tight rein on it with our minds, our human personalities for eons.  Right now, as we invite our soul more into our bodies and our lives, our minds are feeling even more scared.  Our mind can’t do what it used to do, manage our lives.  In fact, it never could do what we wanted it to do, which was bring us joy.

What I was reminded of from my dear friends, the owl, the turtle and the egret, was that it’s not necessary to push this process.  It’s happening anyway.  There is within each of us a deep undercurrent of wisdom, of peace, of passion, of connection with the Earth.  Within us is the knowledge that life wants to serve us, and that it is safe to be here on Earth.  Our job is only to ALLOW our soul to carry us now…and also to be patient with our human self because from its perspective this is not familiar territory.  Trust that when it feels right to rest, you rest.  When it feels right to express,  find a way to do that.  When it feels right to cry, to laugh, to be angry, do that.  Be as gentle and compassionate with yourself as you have been with others.

And most importantly, know that your truth is in the wisdom of your soul, not in the musings of your mind.  And your soul is that part of YOU that is whole and complete, that part of you that knows only joy, and knows that all is possible.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Eight years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  1. Thank you for sharing this with us.
    It’s so interesting how people on this path tend to have similar intuitions. I, too, received some ‘messages’ from our animal friends. It was mostly last year that little yellow butterflies seemed to follow me and last year it was as well that – and I couldn’t believe it, because these animals are usually never seen around here – an eagle was in front of my house and as soon as I saw him he flew away into to big tree opposite the house. I knew this was a message and looked up its meaning on the internet.
    I read that you have had your experiences with cystitis. I have it now again (which is annoying) and I’m connecting it to the clearing of the 2nd chakra (clearance of blockages of past sexual traumatic experiences, blockages in creative self expression…). How would you interpret it?

    • Yes the eagle is a beautiful and dynamic symbol. I like your interpretation of the cystitis symptoms. Makes sense that it would be associated with those issues. That we are clearing those energies, and so much of that I inherited from the women in my family lineage. Some conditions seem to take longer to clear and I notice even more so if i respond to them with fear and concern.

      • I remember a past life where I was raped as a little child and another past life where my needs for love weren’t met, so I “cheated” on my partner, was caught and felt incredible guilt. My parents were very prude and sex was a taboo topic in my family in this life, so I got some of the blockages from then, as well. I don’t mind the clearing process as such, I could do witout the pain and fatigue, though 😉
        I have also been having intense dreams for the past couple of weeks, very emotionally charged as well, so I guess there is a lot of clearing going on at the moment in my whole body.
        How are you feeling at the moment?

  2. Thanks for asking Kat.
    I also have been having very intense emotional dreams as well. And right now even though I am practicing not trying to figure this all out. I still get seduced by the fears of my mind. Especially relative to a physical condition that has to do with my eyes. As the master, I know that this too shall pass, but as a human, I fear the worst. Yes, the pain and fatigue I find not to be as much of a concern. And I agree, I will not miss those conditions either. ❤️❤️

  3. Your blog feels like home to me Ma’am !

    I feel as if weeks of emotional strain of living in veils of social conventions disappears on just reading your few lines alone.

    The single best thing I learnt here was to stop feeding others no matter how much ‘mean person’ it makes you in eyes of others.

    Earlier I had lost myself in the people pleasing ways ..

    you brought back my childhood naughtiness of following oneself ( also stubborn and rebellious)

    irrespective of how many people may get annoyed …

    positive change much :p

    • Very nicely said my friend. Thank you for sharing your experience that so many of us are feeling at this time. I like that you feel at home here in this sacred space that I have created for myself, and for those like you who just need some simple reminders of who they truly are. ❤️

  4. I am almost always greeted by pigeon when im on the roof alone.

    Of all the birds, Its only the pigeons that either fly over my head and sit on the roof for a time being.

    Pigeon is a symbol of soul’s desire for freedom !!

    The bird waits and bears the thirst for whole year to drink the very rare divine water drops that fall only few times during a specific lunar constellation.

    It always reminds me to put freedom above everything else.

  5. What a beautiful story Maria, thank you for sharing, just what I NEEDED TODAY!!
    Love, and big (((hugs))) ❤
