Though I have many messengers in nature that make appearances, the hawk is my most frequent visitor. He or she arrives in times of possible danger connected to me. Danger not just in the physical sense but other areas as well. The arrival is seldom just a coincidence.
When he is needed to deliver a message and make me aware he comes in close and loudly announces himself.
I have come to realize that once he has my attention he perches on a limb facing the direction of the threat and loudly screaches. He will continue to return until I acknowledge that I perceive what it is he brings my attention to and thank him.
This messenger has been my saving grace more times than I can count. I am grateful for him/her and always say hello and thank them for the protection and messages whether they are coming in close to deliver a warning or just riding high on the air currents in all their magnificence.
