My dear friends,
Most mornings in the summer, before dawn, I sit on my patio, coffee in hand and enjoy the silence, the serenity of moment. The only sounds usually heard are the munching sounds of the volumes of little birds eating their breakfast at the bird feeders at the far end of my garden.
Birds everywhere...some perched on the high branches of the leafless aspen tree near the feeders. An occasional squirrel scampering up and down the trunk but this morning...all was dead silent and not a squirrel or bird in sight!
The exception was a small bird with a high pitched continuous chirping to the point of annoyance!
The sound intrusion to my quiet time never stopped!
There I sat, however, just putting up with the situation and indeed, wondering where all "my birds" were? Why were they not munching away at their foods?
Then....swooping right past my line of vision flew a hawk! The hawk perched itself on the higher branches of the leafless aspen tree just scoping out the situation!
A hawk! In all my years sitting on the patio at that time of day had I ever seen a hawk. This raptor just sat there on a high branch. The screeching of the small bird continued and my mind began to put the situation into play.
Hawks will eat small birds. The screeching bird was the scout warning all little ones to stay hidden in the surrounding trees and move on only when it was safe for them
In Lakota spirituality, hawks are "messengers" testing your ability to pay attention to your own messages and intuitiveness. The screeching little bird was "warning" of a danger and offering the others an opportunity to make choices...to stay in the trees unseen.
When an animal "grabs our attention" in someway, it is possibly Spirit tapping you on the shoulder intuitively. Hawk calls us to pay attention to our feelings, our intuitiveness and not discard that gnawing that keeps grabbing our attention....relationshipwise, jobwise, locationwise...whatever.
Pay attention! Take responsibility! Look at the overall view of your life. Be aware of the signals in your life and receive them. By all means, Grab EVERY OPPORTUNITY that is coming your way and if you find it is good for you...go for it! Don't hide. Don't be afraid.
In all the work that I do as a spiritual counselor, I have observed that WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR POWER, the Universe, rolls up its sleeves and goes to work for YOU!
The Hawk found no breakfast in my gardens that morning. The screeching bird flew away and eventually the little birds arrived munching away like a bus load of teenagers pulling up to IHOP for pancakes! Chirping, singing, resting on the high branches of the leafless aspen tree could be heard and all was again well with my world.

BEAUTIFUL MEDITATION MUSIC:
When I am in "Quiet time", I like silence. I tap my Tibetan bowl, close my eyes, breathe deeply and go to my Higher Self.
However....I have on my computer an icon of a beautiful sound of music that I click on when I just need to go visit with the angels, relax...get away...if even momentarily form the pressures of my work.
I want to share this with you too.
Click on this video and listen.
I suggest you also SAVE it to your desktop and you, too, can take a few moments in your busy day to go relax with the Angels. It is called EPHIPANY.

"I wanted to say thank you so much for my reading two months ago. It was my first ever, and the insight into the issues in my life has helped me immensely. I am so grateful. You have helped to see what I couldn't see. You have helped me start to heal and find myself again. And you have helped me to find the path to what I am meant to do on this earth. Everything you told me is coming to fruition. Everything. At first, I didn't understand. I had to listen to my CD about 10 times before I could really get a grasp on concepts I had never heard about. I am awakening, and it is all because of you. Thank you for being you, and sharing your gift for our benefit. " ... L.C., CO
"Spirit...I have just three things to teach:
SIMPLICITY, PATIENCE and COMPASSION
These three are the greatest treasures...
SIMPLE in actions and in thoughts you return to the source of your being.
PATIENT with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are.
COMPASSION toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.
