I was coming home from an author talk and my husband (who was driving) noticed something by the side of the road.
He: “Hey, did you see that?”
No, I didn’t see it. I never see anything.
Me: “No, what is it?”
He: “A hawk.”
Me: “No way!”
Feeling bad that I missed it, he banged a U-y and we went back to the spot where he saw it. And there it was! A hawk, standing in a puddle on the side of a busy road in Lexington (I think-did I mention that I have no sense of direction?). Like she was waiting for me to come back. To let me see her.
He waited for a long time.
And then I did see him! He posed for pictures! He turned to let me get a shot from every angle!
Me: “What kind of hawk is it?”
He: “A red tailed hawk.”
Me: (I knew he’d know. He always knows that kind of stuff. Makes me proud. 🙂 )
So now I know enough now to know that there was a message for me here.
I went to my go-to website for such things (lilysongbird.com) to find out what the message was.
Here’s what it says:
HAWK signifies being caught up in too many details, so step back so you can get a greater perspective on the situation. Stay alert and focused on the task before you, eliminating as many distractions as possible. Spend some time observing and studying the situation and when it’s time for action, make it quick and decisive. Pay close attention to your surroundings, as you’re about to receive an important message. Be aware of any personal or psychic attacks and be prepared to defend yourself. Stop trying to change others or the situation and work instead on accepting things as they are.

Great lesson on awareness. How hard it is for us humans most times! So much we can learn from animals when we take time to be present with them.
Yes! A whole new world opens up when you become aware of the messages the animals are bringing you! So powerful!
Thanks for sharing the link to lilysongbird.com. I’ve been “stalked” by a murder of crows for months now (of course, I’m sure it’s the same one). They follow me everywhere. Really. On my walks, in my car, in my dreams…
I was more than a little concerned that it was a dark omen. Turns out it’s a positive message. Sigh of relief.
Excellent! Knowledge really IS power, isn’t it, Kristen?!
