Eagle's Song was created from images of eagle feathers, and eagles outside my home. This was a very special and sacred mandala to create....It was the first one I ever created. It was a time of huge transformation for me, at my Chiron Return. There are so many individuals I'm so grateful to that were a part of this transformational journey. This mandala was inspired by one of those individuals.
When an eagle appears, you are on notice to be courageous and stretch your limits. Do not accept the status quo, but rather reach higher and become more than you believe you are capable of. Look at things from a new, higher perspective. Be patient with the present; know that the future holds possibilities that you may not yet be able to see. You are about to take flight. This has certainly been a very brief description of the energy of my past 4 years! In 2010, I had no idea how these mandalas would blossom forth, I had no idea of all I was capable of....no idea of so very much and so many beautiful lessons and blessings that have come into my life.
The Eagle represents spiritual protection, carries prayers, and brings strength, courage, wisdom, illumination of spirit, healing, creation, and a knowledge of magic. The eagle has an ability to see hidden spiritual truths, rising above the material to see the spiritual. The eagle has an ability to see the overall pattern, and the connection to spirit guides and teachers. The eagle represents great power and balance, dignity with grace, a connection with higher truths, intuition and a creative spirit grace achieved through knowledge and hard work.
Eagle is also linked with courage. To give up our limited perspectives, to release ourselves from comfortable, familiar thought patterns, even when they don't appear to be working, and fly into a larger world requires that we are brave enough to enter unknown realms. This is further emphasised by Native American and Celtic tales, of shamans and druids who shapeshifted into eagles.
Mental and emotional shape shifting is sometimes necessary if we want to grow and learn. As with all things there are risks involved in allowing our beings to assume new forms, however the rewards are greater. Eagle asks us to recognise that the earth is not our only home, as well for us to join it in the flight to our true home - the world of Spirit.
