The hawk was back again today. Loudly announcing himself as I stood in the snowy yard. It took me a moment to locate him by his call as he blended all too well with the barren branches of the winter tree. From his lofty perch he looked down in my direction with that keen gaze, silent for a moment. With an abrupt last call, he lifted off the branch, spread his wings wide and did a low swoop over the rooftop in a southerly direction.
This is the second Sunday he has graced us with his presence. Making sure we noticed him.
I take time to ponder this because when a hawk shows up around us there is always some significance to it. In the Native American culture it is believed that he brings warning to "beware" or "be aware" that danger may be near.
The red tail hawk is very symbolic. It has ties to the kundalini (the seat of the primal life force). It teaches us that balance is necessary to discover our true purpose in life and aids in opening you to your creative life purpose.
It can represent leadership, deliberation and foresight. The powerful bird is a messenger, telling you to be observant, wherever and whenever it shows up, pay attention because a message is coming. Life is sending you signals.
I will heed its warning. Taking the necessary measures to be safe in any of my travels and interactions with others as I remain alert and open to any forthcoming messages.
