It’s for the Birds


Hey litebeings! I am reblogging this recent post on my birds encounter because I now see it as foreshadowing. Take this repost as a prelude to fresh new material about these “uncertain times. ” May love and peace be with you always ❤

Hello litebeings,

Just yesterday I was meeting with my spiritual director about how bored I am with my life and that I rarely can generate excitement anymore. This existential angst has been in play a few months, as transiting Saturn joins transiting Pluto in my 12th house.

After waking this morning I draw the blinds in my dining room which faces the backyard. I see something I have never seen before. Initially, I thought I spied a few sparrows getting ready to disperse. But this was a whole ‘nother event. I witnessed what looked like a few hundred blackbirds literally carpet the backyard and eventually come close to darkening the morning sky in flight. I rushed to turn on my phone to take a picture but it seemed like I was too late. But they swooped back down just a few yards from view, giving me a small window to…

  1. I, too, am a watcher of the birds around me. After previously learning the meaning to be gained from the crows that seemed to call for my attention off and on (transition/changes) from a business coach (who I met when she was the Employee Assistance Counselor for a biz I worked for, and my marriage was on the rocks…), well, here I was, being greeted by a single crow next to my car when I left each morning for work – one nearby where I parked for work, and greetings when I arrived home – sigh – I had given my notice at my day-job to embark on creative project with a long-time colleague and thought it was all for a sign of ‘great decision! This new endeavor is going to be great!” – alas, my oldest son died a week later, unexpectedly, and I revised my ‘optimistic’ thinking – and yet – when I sat outside in the aftermath shortly afterward, there seemed to always be an older crow who came a ‘sat’ with me – they were such a comfort to me during those days – I’ve moved now – the starlings/finches? I know not what they are – but they flock to my drive and yard to play, pluck at seeds that fall from various things – the Robins show up to keep me company in the garden areas while I work – A hawk showed up outside of my mom’s bedroom window each morning for so many days, she, a “not a personage who believes in all that jazz’ finally said, “Sis, I need to tell you something, and I hope you don’t think I’m losing it, but there has been a hawk outside of my bedroom window every morning and I just feel that I’m supposed to tell you about it” – :). so even when I’m in town setting, I still get what I need when I need it – 🙂

    1. Thanks for sharing your bird companion tales. The past couple of days a solitary robin has walked right up to my living room sliding glass door, almost insisting to be invited in. This is new for me! Maybe wildlife is becoming emboldened now and/or perhaps the birds know I need their company.

      Hope you are well, Linda

      1. We are well (the son ‘man-child’ and I) – From Dr. Steven Farmer’s Animal Spirits book (one of many) If Robin shows up- “Expect new growth in a number of areas in your life” – When to call on Robin – “You recognize that you’re at the end of a major cycle and beginning a fresh, new one, and want to enjoy both the ending and the beginning as you go through this transition” – :).
