Eliza:  Morning Observations

Finding My Voice, My Path

This morning on my walk I was first greeted by the beautiful song of a mockingbird perched on top of a nearby mailbox, and then, just seconds later, a Great Blue Heron flew right in front of me and then perched on the roof of a nearby house.  Realizing that messages often come through the animals that appear in my world, I looked up the messages these birds were presenting to me:

Blue Heron Symbolism:

According to North American Native tradition, the Blue Heron brings messages of self-determination and self-reliance. They represent an ability to progress and evolve. The long thin legs of the heron reflect that an individual doesn’t need great massive pillars to remain stable, but must be able to stand on one’s own.

Blue Herons have the innate wisdom of being able to maneuver through life and co-create their own circumstances. Blue Herons reflect a need for those with this totem to follow their own unique wisdom and path of self-determination. These individuals know what is best for themselves and need to follow their hearts rather than the promptings of others. Those with the Medicine of the Great Blue Heron may sit until the rest of us lose patience. And, when they follow the promptings of the heart, they are one of the most magnificent when they choose to soar.

This is the message that Blue Heron brings.

I have been struggling in the past few days, even for months, seeking to discover my way, my path.  Should I strike out on my own?  Is it not a scary thing to do since I haven’t been here very long? 

During the long drawn-out Covid thing, I finally began to realize what I should do, what I had to do for myself. 

I have a strong will, an independent nature with a desire to explore this new world.  I love Nature.  I respond to beauty.  I enjoy simplicity and clean lines.  I enjoy having the opportunity to be here… although I must admit I didn’t at first.

For I am an adult walk-in, a higher frequency being (6D/7D) who dropped into an older earth human vehicle.  It is one thing to be born here; it is another thing to suddenly be here, in this heavy low frequency energy and not be confused, angry, resentful… feeling a whole range of incredibly powerful emotions not experienced by “me” before.  To be honest, it has been a little daunting.  Lately, however, I have begun to understand what I can do, what I want to do, and how I want to do it.  I knew I might have to sacrifice a few things, namely some relationships, in order to break free of what I felt were constraints on my freedom.  Whether that perspective is understood by others is moot; it reflects what I feel and is not meant to be directed as a criticism of anyone else’s point of view or experience.  It is simply mine.

I am still struggling somewhat to discover my voice and my song, but now that I have taken the first shaky initial steps, I know that by listening to my inner guidance, I will discover a whole new world of possibilities, filled with the simple joys and wonders of physical existence on this beautiful planet.  The birds told me so and I see them and thank them for their sweet messages.

Blessings and love to all
