Hawk: A Symbol of Spiritual Awareness

Spread the love

When I was a child I had the opportunity to spend time at the Outdoor Education Center in Yellow Springs, Ohio.  This was a rewarding experience for a lot of reasons.  I was spending time in nature, learning about the animals and plants native to my area, chasing the elusive indigo bunting, eating violets, and enjoying the freedom of not being in a traditional classroom.  One of the animals that I became better acquainted with was the red-tailed hawk.  What a beautiful creature.  I still get a special feeling when I remember the experience.  The hawk, as a totem, is known as a messenger of the spirit world and a symbol of spiritual awareness.  The next tapping exercise will help you explore your own spiritual connections.

I choose to honor my willingness to grow in this area.  Even though I need to focus much more on body and mind that I do spirit, I deeply and completely love, honor, and accept myself.
